A note on posting[edit]

If necessary, your post will be copy-edited to conform with standard written American English. Particular pet peeves include incorrectly punctuated direct addresses, use of quotation marks and their relationship with punctuation, which vs. that, they vs. it, and use of a hyphen with spaces when an em-dash without spaces is needed. Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 02:48, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Copyediting[edit]

I am very thankful for your copy-editing skills! If you are not already, please join the League of Copyeditors. See you around! --Otheus 08:52, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I hope I joined the League correctly! ;) Peace.

I don't know if this is up your alley, but I just copy edited the article on Ray Stevens. Perhaps you could do some follow-up proofreading.
To find articles to edit, go to Category:Wikipedia_articles_needing_copy_edit. Here are some Category:Wikipedia_articles_needing_copy_edit_from_April_2007|from April that you might be interested in
--Otheus 20:02, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
Also, be sure to add some kind of edit summary. Usually "cpe" is sufficient. If you go to "My Preferences"/"Editing," click on "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary." This will help everyone, really. Keep up the great work! IGF, --Otheus 07:15, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

First, you have not yet been officially welcomed, so Welcome! I'm not sure if you need these, but here's some pages worth reading:

You'll probably learn your way around as I did — by exploring. But feel free to ask me any questions.

Edit Summaries[edit]

Hello. With all the editing you do on WP, I think it might really be a good idea to consider the use of edit summaries (see Edit_summary for info). I find they help other editors a lot, and you might find them useful yourself when checking your own past edits. Thanks! Doctormatt 07:00, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Seconded.--Oneiros (talk) 23:39, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you.
Hi MJ. Another note on editing, if you don't mind: It will also be easier for you and your co-editors to collaborate on articles if, instead of making multiple consecutive edits in rapid succession on an article, you use the "Show preview" button to view your changes incrementally before finally saving the page once you're satisfied with your edits. Thanks in advance for considering this.
Help:Show_preview promotes minimizing the number of saves per edit session. We're being watched, and we feel our pulse. Eric talk 20:16, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Scare quotes[edit]

I'm trying to find any guidance on the use of scare quotes in Wikipedia articles, and came across your user box. Are you aware of any policy or guideline on their use? It's come up regarding Post-cult trauma. ·:· Will Beback ·:· 22:25, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

League of Copyeditors roll call[edit]

CopyeditorIcon3.png Greetings from the League of Copyeditors. Your name is listed on our members page, but we are unsure how many of the people listed there are still active contributors to the League's activities. If you are still interested in participating in the work of the League, please follow the instructions at the members page to add your name to the active members list. Once you have done that, you might want to familiarise yourself with the new requests system, which has replaced the old /proofreading subpage. As the old system is now deprecated, the main efforts of the League should be to clear the substantial backlog that still exists there.
The League's services are in as high demand as ever, as evinced by the increasing backlog on our requests pages, both old and new. While FA and GA reviewers regularly praise the League's contributions to reviewed articles, we remain perennially understaffed. Fulfilling requests to polish the prose of Wikipedia's highest-profile articles is a way that editors can make a very noticeable difference to the appearance of the encyclopedia. On behalf of the League, if you do consider yourself to have left, I hope you will consider rejoining; if you consider yourself inactive, I hope you will consider returning to respond to just one request per week, or as many as you can manage. Merry Christmas and happy editing, The League of Copyeditors.

AfD nomination of Van Gogh (Ras Kass album)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Van Gogh (Ras Kass album), an article on which you have created or worked, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Van Gogh (Ras Kass album) and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 18:59, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Hadag Nahash[edit]

Hadag Nahash's press kit says that it plays hip hop, funk and other music. Generally, it is called a hip hop group in Israel. Why did you change the classification to funk group? -- Ynhockey (Talk) 08:59, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

If they hate the label as you say, why don't they do something about it with their producer? In any case, do you have a reliable source to verify what you said? —Ynhockey (Talk) 17:18, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
Don't get me wrong, it's great that you know the lead singer and stuff, but this isn't how Wikipedia works—no disrespect intended. Only what is supported by reliable sources can be inserted into Wikipedia. Read the verifiability policy for further details. If this policy didn't exist, anyone could say that they personally knew lead singers and such, and insert whatever they wanted into articles. Please find a source (maybe an interview of the lead singer?) where he says that they hate the classification. —Ynhockey (Talk) 15:29, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Elektra Records[edit]

This notice is to inform you that new Elektra label reissues on the dormant label use the classic 1960s stencil E logo instead of the double-E logo, which was the final logo before Atlantic Records absorbed the label and rendered it dormant. The infobox remains because WMG has not yet formally declared the label defunct. Steelbeard1 (talk) 11:00, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Then should there be an infobox at all because of the dormant label? Steelbeard1 (talk) 11:21, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

House music piping[edit]

I noticed you've peen piping house music as house-music. House music is not a single word, it doesn't require a hyphen, "house" is an adjective referring to style. Your use of house-music just creates additional work for you, when simply linking the two separate words will suffice. Cheers. --Pc13 (talk) 15:16, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

When a style of music is used as an adjective, it requires hyphens: “Legendary house-music producer Marhsall Jefferson returned after a 10-year absence from the music industry.” When it is used as a noun, it doesn’t take a hyphen: “Many people like to dance to house music. House music is a feeling.” I hope this clears up why I’ve been doing what I’m doing. I suggest you look at The Chicago Manual of Style for further clarification.
I don't know what the Chicago Manual of Style is, but I know what the English language is. Hyphens are for compost words. House-music does not exist as a compost noun. Do you also write "rock-music," "jazz-music," "trance-music," and "classical-music" with hyphens? --Pc13 (talk) 10:18, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
I just demonstrated noun and adjective usage to you. What’s the problem? Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 23:13, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Re-issue of Mantronix: The Album or New Compilation Album?[edit]

I was going to draft a new article on the 2008 Mantronix compilation album until I ran across your edit on The Album. Do you really look at it as a re-issue? I think it would be better as a compilation album, especially since it really doesn't track ALL of the listings on The Album, + there is a previously unreleased track on the new album. I didn't want to make a change until you weighed in with your thoughts. Sundevilesq (talk) 20:28, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Gotcha. I also checked on All Music, and it has it as a reissue as well. Good work, bro! Sundevilesq (talk) 21:51, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Afrocentrism[edit]

Hi there. I see you put a Neutrality Disputed tag on the Afrocentrism article. Please could you explain on the talk page why you did that, so that we can all engage and resolve? Wdford (talk) 06:58, 9 February 2009 (UTC)


I saw your comment on Afrocentrism - fair enough. Deciding on who is radical and who is classical and who is middle-of-the-road is a tough call. Different people have different views - the definitions here have been a problem all along. Bernal does get a mention further down, but if you would like to contribute a paragraph on him that would be great. Wdford (talk) 10:33, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Deletion of sourced material[edit]

Could you please explain why you deleted sourced material, including genres and album specifics, from the articles Dr. Octagonecologyst and Instrumentalyst (Octagon Beats)? (Ibaranoff24 (talk) 02:07, 10 February 2009 (UTC))

  • I don't know which edits you refer to, but if I removed anything, it was not my intention. Wikipedia is not based on opinion. The styles you removed were sourced, not to mention the album specifics on Instrumentalyst. Multiple sources refer to these albums as alternative and underground hip hop, as well as trip hop. And an instrumental version of an album falls into the same categorization as remix albums. (Ibaranoff24 (talk) 15:57, 10 February 2009 (UTC))

Feedback for the Teena Marie article[edit]

If you're not too busy, I'd like to get your feedback on the suggestions I made in Talk:Teena Marie. I noticed that you made some recent helpful edits to the Teena Marie article, and I'd certainly respect your thoughts.--Raskovnik (talk) 18:01, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Emcee versus rapper[edit]

In the FAQ of The Return of Dr. Octagon, a reviewer commented that they were unclear on the use of the term emcee in reference to Kool Keith. Rapper is a little more clear for readers who aren't familiar with hip hop terminology. Ibaranoff24 (talk) 16:12, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi, concerning something[edit]

I looked through and I saw that you put in most of your articles Def Jam/IDJMG/Universal Records, physically that's incorrect since Def Jam is a label in it's own right, IDJMG is the parent compant and saying that it's distributed by Universal Records, which, BTW, links to Universal Music Group even though there is a seperate label with that name is incorrect since it says on their page that they're self-distributed. On most of these pages, only the name of the label, which it released it on is OK, not this Def Jam/IDJMG/Universal Records stuff, I also see that you did the same thing using the Record Label/Distributing Label/Parent Label stuff, especially Priority/EMI. Personally I think it doesn't make any sense, but I just wanted to share my opinion on this. Also I don't like that you use the term records by putting it at the end of something like PolyGram Records, first of all, it wasn't a label—it was a music group that distributed other labels releases. --Taylor Karras (talk) 11:05, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

This comes from MTV back in the days. And PolyGram was a record label, one of the big-six majors before 1999. Most of its releases had copyright attributed to PolyGram Records Inc. Besides, I worked in the music industry during the late 1990s. Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 08:14, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Yosef Ben-Jochannan[edit]

How is the article non-neutral POV? You don't say how it's biased against Dr. Ben's work. Many believe his work to be true but many do not. Both views were represented. Citations have been deleted. That article has been vandalized so badly that it currently has no citations. I intend to restore all the citations and completely revamp the article. If you want to keep the POV tag you're going to need more to back this up. Wlmg (talk) 08:39, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations on receiving the Dr. Heiter Award![edit]

For your contributions to The Human Centipede (First Sequence), I present you with the Dr. Heiter Award. "Feed!"

Hi, there, and thank you for your contributions to The Human Centipede (First Sequence). When the article was first started in October 2009, it was but a tiny stub that was immediately tagged for deletion, but thanks to the efforts of wikipedia editors, that tiny acorn has grown into a great oak tree of an article. The Human Centipede (First Sequence) now has B-Class status, and on 17th June 2010, the article received its 1,000,000th page view!

The Dr. Heiter Award was created to reward editors who have made positive contributions to the article. It can be presented by any Wikipedia user to anyone who has helped the article grow. This might be by adding new content, fixing any errors, or reverting vandalism.

Thanks!

Mantronik/Mantronix edits[edit]

I appreciate the edits you did on the Kurtis Mantronik and Mantronix pages, but several of the edits corrected direct quotes (with sources duly cited). I didn't revert them, because I wanted to get your feedback first. Maybe "sic" notations are in order? Personally, I think quotes, bad grammar and all, should be left the way they are quoted, and those parts of your edits should be reverted. Sundevilesq (talk) 22:54, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

That’s why I used brackets in certain places. I didn’t change the grammar of any of the quotations, but I did change the punctuation in order for it to conform with standard written English. In interviews, the punctuation is usually added by the person writing the article. Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 07:17, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Concerning edit summaries[edit]

I see you've already been guided toward using edit summaries in the past, yet I still see zero edit summary usage. Is there a reason why you refuse to use edit summaries? -- œ 19:33, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

And stop restoring that image to the article. The point is to aid in readers' understanding of the article, not jam every copyrighted alternate cover available. Unless you can cite something that says otherwise, the cover has neither been widely distributed nor replaced the original. Your generic rationale (copied verbatim from any other rationale) for the file is misleading and not truthful ("primary visual image", "identification in the context of critical commentary of the work", "makes a significant contribution to the user's understanding of the article") Dan56 (talk) 07:05, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
Is Discogs.com cited anywhere in the article? Check the sources cited and then get back to me. Dan56 (talk) 07:07, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:The Best of Fela Kuti.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:The Best of Fela Kuti.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 07:29, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Gorillaz[edit]

Do you have a source regarding the reissue of their debut album? Regards, FM talk to me | show contributions ]  19:24, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Atlantic Records[edit]

Virgin Records was never a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. Rather, Virgin had an on-off US distribution deal with Atlantic—which is not the same thing as being a subsidiary—from 1973-1992. Virgin remained an independent label until it was acquired by Thorn EMI in 1992. Because the labels still had a relationship, I saw no immediately compelling reason to revert your edit. However, you may wish to revert it based on this better understanding of the nature of that relationship. Pstoller (talk) 23:56, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

"Charter"[edit]

The plaque you posted on the Stuy Town article is not in any sense of the word a "charter". It was placed to honor Frederick H. Ecker on his 80th birthday. It reads:

Please do not again misrepresent so badly the facts about anything. It undermines the value of Wikipedia. Beyond My Ken (talk) 03:20, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Stuyvesant Town–Peter Cooper Village. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:00, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

You are edit warring against the consensus of two editors, please stop. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:00, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
Please make any response to Talk:Stuyvesant Town–Peter Cooper Village#"Charter". Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:05, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
WP:Verifiability, one of Wikipedia's basic policies, says, in part:

All material in Wikipedia mainspace, including everything in articles, lists and captions, must be verifiable. All quotations, and any material whose verifiability has been challenged or is likely to be challenged, must include an inline citation that directly supports the material. Any material that needs a source but does not have one may be removed.

The existence of multiple plaques is unsupported by a citation from a reliable source, and has been removed. Please do not restore it without such a citation to support it. (The article cited in the caption refers to only a single plaque.) Beyond My Ken (talk) 08:10, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
