Cultural Policy[edit]

I was quite impressed by the changes you made in the article on cultural policy. Did you use any other sources than the ones you mentioned? Especially the section on Theoretical approaches (e. g. Populism) was very helpful for me. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.187.184.163 (talk) 20:30, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliment, but I was only one of a number of contributors. Previous editors wrote all that great stuff about populism vs. elitism. Yeah, I thought it was a great point too. I can see the merits of both sides. The government should enable people to hear the best popular music, popular art. But I also see the argument that the government should support the "older" arts (ballet, classical music, etc.).OnBeyondZebraxTALK 01:30, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Peanut butter[edit]

You are an experienced editor, but this edit was careless and lazy for how you formatted the sources. I don't understand the motivation for such behavior. In the upper left of the editing box is a dropdown menu where you can choose a template and easily enter information. Please take a moment to insert the right details, so I and other editors don't have to clean up after you. --Zefr (talk) 14:50, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Zefr. Sorry. I just get focused on trying to add content to articles. Of course one should not just add the content, but also add the references properly. Thank you for your message.OnBeyondZebraxTALK 02:41, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Garage rock article[edit]

Thanks for your interest in the Garage rock article--I appreciate your improvements there. I especially appreciate your help in the Female garage bands section. Unbeknownst to many, the 1960s was the golden age of all-female rock bands. There were more than most could ever realize.[1][2] Here's one of my favorites by the Mod VI [3] I'd like to expand the section and add a few more bands, high-level sources permitting. Once again, thanks for your interest and help. Garagepunk66 (talk) 03:07, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Hey thanks for the interest in women bands and women in music. Thanks also for the link. Great article! I will figure out which groups qualify as garage band. Very interesting article (Garage band), given that the definition has changed over the decades. Will get to work : )OnBeyondZebraxTALK 23:12, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

"Evanescence was only woman"[edit]

I certainly hope you know that's just their singer and current guitarist...majority of the band's members have been male. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 12:55, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

I was trying to say that the only photo of a woman I found on Nu metal was Evanescence's pic (showing her singing). Good point that Evanescence as a band mostly male. I added a photo of Kittie. MOS:IMAGES says that articles should show a diversity of gender and race.OnBeyondZebraxTALK 20:42, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
Ah. Seems I just had a misunderstanding of your wording there. Happy editing. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 00:58, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Music store[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Music store has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

2017 Military Historian of the Year and Newcomer of the Year nominations and voting[edit]

As we approach the end of the year, the Military History project is looking to recognise editors who have made a real difference.

Nominations for both awards are open between 00:01 on 2 December 2017 and 23:59 on 15 December 2017. After this, a 14-day voting period will follow commencing at 00:01 on 16 December 2017. Nominations and voting will take place on the main project talkpage: here and here. Thank you for your time. For the co-ordinators, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 08:35, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Post-grunge lit[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Post-grunge lit has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Zero sources cited use this term other than a self-published source, the PhD thesis. This is a non-notable neologism.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  16:09, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your comments. WP:SCHOLARSHIP says that "Completed dissertations or theses written as part of the requirements for a PhD, and which are publicly available (most via interlibrary loan or from Proquest), can be used but care should be exercised, as they are often, in part, primary sources. Some of them will have gone through a process of academic peer reviewing, of varying levels of rigor, but some will not. If possible, use theses that have been cited in the literature; supervised by recognized specialists in the field; or reviewed by third parties." Care should be taken in using completed PhD dissertations.OnBeyondZebraxTALK 16:17, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
No one said the source can't be used. It's simply insufficient to establish notability. See WP:GNG. There has to be multiple instances of non-trivial coverage in reliable, independent sources.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  18:08, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Post-grunge lit for deletion[edit]

PS: For what it's worth, I'm arguing to keep mention of it in the Grunge lit article, where the PhD source is arguably sufficient.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  09:36, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Help improving Kinder Surprise[edit]

Hi there OnBeyondZebrax, I spotted your name in the members list at WP:FOOD and hoped you might be interested in helping out on an article I'm trying to improve: Kinder Surprise. Right now, the best developed section is Safety issues, while the Description etc are quite poorly written and sourced. On behalf of Ferrero (the maker of the Kinder chocolate line), via their communications agency The Glover Park Group and as part of my work with Beutler Ink, I've drafted up new material for the article using independent sourcing and I'm looking for editors like yourself to review and take the drafted material live, if it looks good. Since it sounded from your note at WP:Food and drink that you might be interested in candy-related articles, I was hoping you may like to take a look at my request?

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.
