Thanks[edit]

for reverting the vandalism on O-Zone. It was on my watchlist, but I'd never looked in the history, so I thought it was just a really short article. I'd been planning to expand it, but now I realize I don't have to. -- Soap Talk/Contributions 00:57, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Haha, no problem. I just looked at the article for the first time in a few months and was shocked that the article went through so many edits without all of its normal sections. I'm sure many users would still appreciate any expansions to the article however ;). Eugeniu Bmsg 01:01, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Re: Ayu in Paris[edit]

Yeah, it's too bad there aren't more (free) non-concert photos of Ayu on the web. If only she would visit my city ... Ink Runner (talk) 00:52, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Tokio[edit]

You said "Please read that section more carefully." However, WikiProject Albums#Formatting says:

Songs and singles are placed in "quotation marks", album titles are italicized...

I think that it explains about albums.--ACSE (talk) 06:31, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

You're completely right. I'm just stupid today; I thought the double apostrophes you added were quotation marks when I compared the revisions side by side. :P Eugeniu B +1 17:24, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Tokio albums[edit]

Hi.

Well, i`m not sure what do you mean by "fairly obvious" but i only did it because that`s what the project guidelines says an article must have, without it they are just stubs. That`s it. Zidane tribal (talk) 01:19, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

The intention of the project is that anyone can appreciate the article, even if you are not familiar with the band, in this particular case the members have been the same for 15 years, but some bands change line-up every album. Zidane tribal (talk) 05:30, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

December 2009[edit]

Repeated action counts of removal of content they do not like can be considered vandalism, and your warning was done in complete bad faith as you could have just left a message on my talk like I have done. MS (Talk|Contributions) 20:55, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

I did leave a message on your talk page—warning you not to warn users not actually vandalizing pages. A warning is a message. How was my edit done in bad faith? By the way, remember your initial edits to Sunrise/Sunset (Love Is All)? Without making a AfD at all, you repeatedly blanked the page, although multiple users didn't agree with doing so. I didn't believe the article violated WP:NSONGS then and I don't think it did now either. Like I said earlier, discuss controversial edits on talk pages. And please don't delete my comments on your talk page, otherwise Template:Uw-tpv1 will end up accompanying that warning. Eugeniu B +1 21:11, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
A warning is a warning. A user friendly warning such as a minor message like above is considered a message. About the "Sunrise/Sunset" article I did not "blank" the page. I redirected the page, which was acceptable per WP:NSONGS, which it failed at the time. A AFD usually results in the deletion of a page hence the title Articles for deletion. I did not want the page deleted because in time it might become notable. There is a difference between deletion a article and redirecting it. Sure multiple editors disagreed with it, fans like that often do. Do not threaten me with warnings. Read WP:TPOC, I can remove your comment if I chose. And if you paid attention to the note on my talk it states I am watching your talk so I would reply to you on your talk. MS (Talk|Contributions) 21:38, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
How intriguing. Please, tell me where in this Wikipedia is a user friendly warning such as a minor message like above is considered a message, while a message using a template is not a message. I would love to know, since I've never heard of such an absurd claim. What part of WP:TPOC lets a user delete a message? The only one I can think of is #4, which deals with removing personal attacks and incivility. Please refresh yourself on those terms by visiting wiktionary:personal attack and wiktionary:incivility respectively. Eugeniu B +1 22:28, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
On your own user talk page, you may remove others' comments, although archiving is generally preferred. Its there on WP:TPOC. So please refresh yourself on the TPOC. Calling me a Talk page stalker is a personal attack if you did not know, which I'm pretty sure you did. Anyone knows that a warning is a warning. It does not take a guideline or a policy to tell you that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MS (talkcontribs) 22:41, 15 December 2009
Is it still a personal attack if the author admits that it was a joke and was meant to be humorous? When did I actually call you a talk page stalker anyway. (If you were wondering, I watch your page too.) But you still didn't answer my biggest question, how was my warning on your talk page considered bad faith? I just didn't want to craft out a warning that already and conveniently exists as a template. Of course that didn't work, since it caused this long conversation.

Recent edit to Live Prayer[edit]

Hello,

I reverted your recent edit to Live Prayer. While it is true that the large font size did not appear in the original, this is not the issue as this large font size appears throughout the entire quote. The statement "emphasis in original" is denoting the fact that the original source had the statement "FOR THAT REASON, HE WILL NOT BE RE-ELECTED" in all caps, whereas the rest of the text used normal capitalization. Your edit was reverted as you removed the statement "emphasis in original" for no valid reason as it was added per WP:MOS.

--Webley455 (talk) 20:42, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

That's very lovely that you think that way, but couldn't you have not reverted my other edits to the quote, such as the insanely large font size? Oh well, it's been removed now anyway. Eugeniu B +1 03:47, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

External link to social site in Olivia Lufkin[edit]

At most, one external link to a commercial topic is usually allowed. The exceptions are rare, and they are definitely not blogs that give readers personal commentary on how difficult it is to shop for shoes. An external link should add something significant and encyclopedic to topic, and in this case, it appears to add nothing. It's just a social site. Take a look at FA articles for major rock stars. Notice: no blogs as external links. Thanks, Piano non troppo (talk) 21:58, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Recochoku[edit]

Well,the RIAJ Top Digital Songs chart does pass, which is the exact same thing as the Recochoku charts. The RIAJ Top Digital Songs is literally just the Recochoku charts posted on their website lol. It says at the top, (「着うたフル(R)」), which is the chart made by Recochoku. If you notice, RIAJ has stopped publishing this chart. That is because Recochoku now publishes the cahrt itself.

I'm not trying to start a war or anything. Maybe we could work towards getting Recochoku recognized (since right now, essentially part of Recochoku --the part that the RIAJ had published-- is recognized while the part that the RIAJ did not publish is not.) Impracticable (talk)

Ok, I understand. The first thing I would do to get Recochoku recognized is to update the information on RIAJ Digital Track Chart, and perhaps move it to a different name if that seems appropriate. Then I think since it's basically the same chart, you can make the name change to Recochoku (or whatever the weekly chart is called) on Wikipedia:Record charts yourself, then note the change on Wikipedia talk:Record charts.
The problem I see for Ayumi Hamasaki discography specifically is that there's no space for the digital chart info for Together When... and placing it under the Oricon chart info would be inappropriate. The best idea I think we can do if we want to keep the digital chart info for Together When... is removing the whole single from that table and making a new table for it in a section called "Japan-released digital singles" or something like that. Sorafune +1 05:53, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
In regards to there being no room for Rechochoku/RIAJ charts, i'm thinking maybe we should change the format of her singles charts. Instead of having the daily peaks, monthly and weekly peaks (which can just be put into the main article) we leave the weekly Oricon peaks, keep the Billboard AIRPLAY peaks (because their Hot 100 is a little silly to begin with.) and use Recochoku for digital. Also, or sales, maybe we should emrge Full Song (Chaku Uta Full) with physical sales (considering digital sales have taken over physical sales, it's a little silly to not include them)

I'm thinking maybe a format like this.

Japanese-released singles[edit]

Year Title Charts/Sales Certifications Album
Physical Sales Digital Sales Airplay Physical Sales Digital Sales Ringtones Full Song Physical
2009 "Sunrise ~Love Is All~" 1 1 15 110,169+ 750,000+ 2x Platinum Platinum Gold 11th Studio Album
"Sunset ~Love Is All~" 11
"You Were..." 1 3 43 114,725+ Gold
"Ballad" 36
2010 "Microphone"
"Don't Look Back"
"Sexy Little Things"

Opinions?

PS, just for the record, I've been the one who's done all the major format revisions of this specific table for the last year or so. (I added certifications, the Billboard section, etc). I feel like a change of this caliber will make it easier to read and simpler, but also more accurate. Instead of showing a billion sales charts (no really, 5 is way too many) and 3 billboard charts (one of which is a sales chart and one is a hybrid sales & airplay) why not have 3 charts that show the three different formats? correct?

My issues: Songs chart seperately on digital charts when they chart together on physical charts. So, that's the reason for that split up. But which song does the physical sales go to? both?

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Personally I much rather prefer having the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly ranks all in there because they're very convenient in comparing the popularity of her singles all at once. I'm also very unsure about having different songs of a single split up, since this is a chart specifically about her singles, not her songs, and splitting them up could imply separate releases. I still think having a main singles table and a second digital-release table would solve this, as well as indication of physical sales for the singles. Sorafune +1 05:54, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Pandora[edit]

Please don't change the meaning of a sentence and call it a "Reword."

You took the true, referenced fact that on Feb 8th the final case molds were approved, and "reworded" it into an assertion that mass production had begun, and that units had begun to ship in "early February". Both are false.

In fact, no final units have gone to customers because none have been made yet.

"Mass Production" is a little vague, but no manufacturing of interest has "started" recently. The electronics were mass produced months ago, the joystick nubs over a year ago, and the mass production of the plastics will begin either late February or early March.

(You may have been confused by forum posts by the developers who recently excitedly posted that they had received their pre-production prototype units.) APL (talk) 04:46, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

No, I was following this source, although I did forget to cite it. Engadget is usually reliable, but it looks like I read the article before they included the "update" correcting their mistake. Sorafune +1 05:38, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Radu[edit]

Hi! You reverted my changes about the song Mix Dojdi in the article of Radu Sirbu. Well, it's not released so obviously it does not belong in the discography section. Here is the song, and the lyrics, so we have a source. I'm not going to add the information again if you not agree. / Alexey KzKrann (talk) 19:21, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Institute for Policy Studies[edit]

As per your comment on my talkpage, I was not aware of the Wikipedia guideline on etquiette, but now that I am I will refrain from personally attacking Anonymous. However, what I won't be refraining from is my commitment to keep the criticism that I wrote about IPS on the Wiki-article which Anonymous is trying to delete. Since you have anti-vandalism and anti-Wikipedia edit blocking powers, I ask that you mediate this dispute and speedily resolve this issue in a fair and judicious manner.

Namie[edit]

It's okay xD On a page like that I can totally understand, plus it was from so much further back with edits in the middle that it gets kind of difficult to separate it all out across versions.

To be honest, the main hint (to me, at least) was the fact it said "1995" under the "1998" section. But no, it's fine xD ~Chelsea (talk) 17:06, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Tokio/One Ok Rock[edit]

You seem to be the person to come to about Tokio/One Ok Rock stuff. I'm trying to make 2010 in Japanese music as awesome as possible - you wouldn't be able to create articles for the Tokio/One Ok Rock related stuff, would you? There's just "Advance/Mata Asa ga Kuru," "Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer," and Niche Syndrome at the moment, but I'm sure there's more that'll come up! --Prosperosity (talk) 04:26, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Sergei Kourdakov[edit]

Sorry, Mr (Miss?) Sorafune, but it was not just a funeral procession in an Orthodox church (which would not be allowed at any rate!). It was an Orthodox *funeral service* (at a ROCOR church at that!) which ARE NOT prayed for non-Orthodox. This is prima facie evidence that Sergei became Orthodox sometime between his finding God and his murder. Orthohawk (talk) 02:39, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

How about this for proof: a note on Fr. Sergius at http://www.theophanydesigns.com/rcs/sources.html

SHUKIN * Father Sergius (t1978) A priest who recently died in Canada. When he was a young man he traveled to Optina Monastery to get advice from Elder Nektary concerning how he should live a Christian life in an antichrjstian society. Having concocted elaborate plans in his mind as to how to start secret catacomb lay brotherhoods, he approached the Elder and asked him what he should do. Elder Nektary replied calmly, “Step by step.” Father Sergius left humbled, yet he followed the Elder’s advice, and after suffering for many years, he was ordained reader by Patriarch Tikhon himself and eventually became a priest, later emigrating to the West. He has provided a fascinating description of the life of the Catacomb Church (in which he describes himself in the third person as “Paul”). He kept abreast of information Concerning Orthodoxy in the Soviet Union (see Pp. 162-79), and personally interviewed Sergei Kourdakov at which time he discovered that he was an Orthodox Christian (see “The Orthodox Word”, no. 59, Nov.-Dec. 1974). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Orthohawk (talkcontribs) 02:58, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

"good examples" of sections that have only one link[edit]

There are plenty out there. Just to name a few: Coldplay (awards section), this is a good article. Taylor Swift ( Awards and nominations section), another good example. Clari 2010 (talk) 01:12, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

He was Acting President from 25 March 2005 to 15 August 2005, at which point he got full presidential power until he resigned on 15 April 2010 (in reality, until 7 April 2010 but that's a different story). Therequiembellishere (talk) 20:42, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

Bullshit?[edit]

You deliberately altered a sourced fact based on your own belief regarding a release date. Fact, you are wrong...release date is June 7th, and you had no place changing it without a source to back up your own bullshit change. Warning was perfectly valid...you've been around long enough to know the guidelines. magnius (talk) 00:31, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Oh, so you've left another note here. I just got done writing a message on your talk page. Oh yes, bee-ess. Sorafune +1 00:33, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

Since when has that been a factor into whether or not an image can be used for fair use in an article? It's an artifact from the screenshot being taken, not a factor into whether or not the image can be used for Wikipedia's encyclopedic purposes.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 20:22, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Superfly[edit]

Please try to use more than two references. Here's a whole selection of articles on Superfly.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 05:42, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Alright, alright, alright, I'll keep all of that in mind. What do you mean by "quotation marks around songs are not bolded" though? I don't know what you're talking about.  mx3 (Sorafune) 07:01, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
Don't use '''"song"'''. Use "'''song'''".—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 19:56, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Ikimono-gakari[edit]

The band uses this name in all media that feature their name in the English language. Not "Ikimono Gakari". On the English Wikipedia, the official name of non-English subjects takes precedence over the "common name" unless a consensus is determined otherwise.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 19:56, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

What part of the band's website uses "ikimono-gakari"? Logicartery claims their website uses "ikimonogakari" but I haven't found either version on their official website, only いきものがかり. On English language websites, all I've really seen is "Ikimono Gakari". Also you don't have to point out every edit I make that you don't like as you have above. Just make the changes and I'll notice them, since I add almost every page I edit to my watchlist.  mx3 (Sorafune) 23:39, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Shinee[edit]

Hi! If you remember, you edited the Shinee article with me. I need your help again. Shinee is releasing its second full-length album soon and it seems a whole load of unregistered users (or DA fans!) have started to edit the GA status article a lot. They have even disturbed the general layout without discussion (all musician biographies on wikipedia are required to follow a general layout that can't be changed). Since, they don't even know about the rules and standards of wikipedia it is impossible to hold them back. We rather edit other articles than keep reverting their mindless fandom. But I think it had now become important that we make a separate Shinee discography article. Fans have added even the track listings. This had really messed up the page, but I dont want the GA status to go away since we worked so hard on it :'( . Shinee has now two albums and three EPs (thats even more than Girls' Generation who have only two albums and two EPs, and debuted one and a half year before Shinee). What is your opinion about a separate discography article? Will you help again? Reply please, I have watchlisted your page. Farjad0322 (talk) 09:39, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

This is alarming indeed; I'm seeing MOS violations all over the place! First, I want to point out that discography sections and articles should in all but the rarest of cases never have tracklists in them. The tracklists should only appear in the album/single articles themselves. Now I have to admit that I still wouldn't support a separate discography article because the size of the Shinee article is still quite small, as is the discography. When splitting off discographies, it's important to also note how large the discographies are in terms of how much information there is for every release. Girls' Generation discography has much more information on their singles, as well as information on their music videos. In any case, the GG discography has information about 59 releases, while the Shinee discography section has only 12. If the Shinee discography had more information on their singles, a music videos section (which actually probably isn't needed), and more releases in general, then it would be a different case. For now, I'll help out with removing all of the fancruft and restoring original and more decent content. エムエックスさん 05:19, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

KISS principle[edit]

Before table-ising any more articles [1], I would ask that you take a moment and think about whether placing the content in table form is really value add to the project. See Wikipedia:TABLE#When_tables_may_not_be_appropriate and consider the trouble that new (and experienced!) editors have with the wiki table markup. Active Banana (talk) 17:51, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

I suppose you're right to some extent; I changed the singles back to a bulleted list. But with just about everything on Wikipedia, the first thing we should be thinking about is the readers, not editors. Tables are things editors just have to learn. If you can't edit a table like one on 4minute, then you'll probably have plenty of trouble with ones like on Queens of the Stone Age discography. エムエックスさん 18:18, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: What a Girl Wants (4minute song)[edit]

Hello Mx3. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of What a Girl Wants (4minute song), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A9 requires that the artist does not have an article and that there are no claims of importance/significance regarding the musical recording itself. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 19:51, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Regarding HuH[edit]

Although it is true that the song charted at #3 on the Gaon downloads chart, the chart is based on the best selling songs of each week, meaning various album tracks are eligible to chart. An example on this week's chart would be Taeyang's "I Need a Girl". It's at number five this week, but its position is based from downloads of that song from the album, which is why if you scroll down you can find "Just a Feeling" at #79 and "You're My" at #87 - both of which are also album tracks from Solar. Hope that helped! :) ~ Hayilim (talk) 21:38, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Hm, that's very strange. In that case, since the song was released only in Hit Your Heart, do you think it would be better to merge HuH (song) into Hit Your Heart? Unless it does get released separately in the future, it's very unlikely that the article will be expanded, and the information that it does have, like music video, performances, chart info, etc, can easily be included in Hit Your Heart. Either way, all of the information in the article for HuH should be included in the album along with similar information for other songs in the album anyway. エムエックスさん 22:13, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Great suggestion, I will start on that now. Would redirecting HuH (song) to Hit Your Heart be okay? I don't know how to merge. :P Hayilim (talk) 13:42, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Yep, merging just means transferring the content and making a redirect anyway. :) エムエックスさん 14:29, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:O-Zone_at_Cerbul_de_Aur_in_2005.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:O-Zone_at_Cerbul_de_Aur_in_2005.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. feydey (talk) 12:57, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

dead links[edit]

Hi, I know you meant well, but please don't delete dead links and replace with a cite-needed template, as you did here. From WP:DEADLINK, "Except for URLs in the External links section that have not been used to support any article content, do not delete a URL solely because the URL does not work any longer. Recovery and repair options and tools are available." The citation of a dead link, especially one with an accessdate, indicates that the statement that it supports has had support, and was checked by an editor. It also provides to later editors a suggestion of where the support had been found, which is helpful in case the link is gone due to a website reorganization or move. The preferred handling is to use the {{dead link}} template. WP:DEADLINK is nice how-to guide on marking and (even better) fixing broken links. Thanks for your work.

WikiCup 2013 February newsletter[edit]

Round 1 is now over. The top 64 scorers have progressed to round 2, where they have been randomly split into eight pools of eight. At the end of April, the top two from each pool, as well as the 16 highest scorers from those remaining, will progress to round 3. Commiserations to those eliminated; if you're interested in still being involved in the WikiCup, able and willing reviewers will always be needed, and if you're interested in getting involved with other collaborative projects, take a look at the WikiWomen's Month discussed below.

Round 1 saw 21 competitors with over 100 points, which is fantastic; that suggests that this year's competition is going to be highly competative. Our lower scores indicate this, too: A score of 19 was required to reach round 2, which was significantly higher than the 11 points required in 2012 and 8 points required in 2011. The score needed to reach round 3 will be higher, and may depend on pool groupings. In 2011, 41 points secured a round 3 place, while in 2012, 65 was needed. Our top three scorers in round 1 were:

  1. Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions), primarily for an array of warship GAs.
  2. London Miyagawa (submissions), primarily for an array of did you knows and good articles, some of which were awarded bonus points.
  3. New South Wales Casliber (submissions), due in no small part to Canis Minor, a featured article awarded a total of 340 points. A joint submission with Alaska Keilana (submissions), this is the highest scoring single article yet submitted in this year's competition.

Other contributors of note include:

Featured topics have still played no part in this year's competition, but once again, a curious contribution has been offered by British Empire The C of E (submissions): did you know that there is a Shit Brook in Shropshire? With April Fools' Day during the next round, there will probably be a good chance of more unusual articles...

March sees the WikiWomen's History Month, a series of collaborative efforts to aid the women's history WikiProject to coincide with Women's History Month and International Women's Day. A number of WikiCup participants have already started to take part. The project has a to-do list of articles needing work on the topic of women's history. Those interested in helping out with the project can find articles in need of attention there, or, alternatively, add articles to the list. Those interested in collaborating on articles on women's history are also welcome to use the WikiCup talk page to find others willing to lend a helping hand. Another collaboration currently running is an an effort from WikiCup participants to coordinate a number of Easter-themed did you know articles. Contributions are welcome!

A few final administrative issues. From now on, submission pages will need only a link to the article and a link to the nomination page, or, in the case of good article reviews, a link to the review only. See your submissions' page for details. This will hopefully make updating submission pages a little less tedious. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.
