Taylor Swift edit[edit]

Hello Popeye191. Thanks for the edit I made on the Taylor Swift material. I'm still semi a new user with what material qualifies as to put onto the protected pages on Wikipedia. If you have any more tips for me as a new user and for what qualifies as to what would be appropriate to put on protected wiki pages I would appreciate it. Thanks again, looking forward to hearing from you. Loganfalco 10:10, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Taylor Swift note[edit]

Hi Popeye191! I just thought I'd let you know that I reverted your unintentional blanking of a significant amount of content on the Taylor Swift article, but then restored the edit you appeared to want to make. I hope this was all okay. Best. Acalamari 10:07, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the help. Not sure how I managed to do that! Popeye191 (talk) 19:04, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Glad you're fine with those edits. :) By the way, thanks for all the work you've done on the Taylor Swift articl
Thanks, that's very kind Popeye191 (talk) 06:47, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Swift's personal life[edit]

Hi Popeye. Thought this article might come in handy; Billboard Taylor Swift's Boyfriend Timeline: 10 Relationships & Their Songs; most of them are already cited in the article. But this includes relationships that aren't and its a reliable source. Regards — Robin (talk) 21:15, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the link! I had a look and they're just speculating. Eddie Redmayne has denied a romance of any kind with Taylor, as has Zac Efron and Cory Monteith.Popeye191 (talk) 08:55, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry about that; I should have read the whole thing before giving it to you. However, there is one; Lucas Till. The article even includes a statement in which he speaks of their break-up. By the way, great work on the Swift article. — Robin (talk) 11:59, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Ben Affleck[edit]

It would be nice if you'd explained the reason you removed the ISBN (and this time the book title) when you did it the second time. It's relevant to the subject, and it's nice to provide the user with a source for further reading.

As far as the LA games being tips-only, it's been a while, but I believe that to be incorrect, based on stories from the players and others with first-hand knowledge. I know that's the way the first few pages read in VF, but I believe it either changes later on or she had legal cause not to admit it in writing. Other sources (like maybe the stories surrounding the lawsuit by a guy's bankruptcy trustee against Tobey) can probably be found when I have a chance. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 01:40, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I should have given a reason at the time. It felt a bit like promotion for the book - maybe just link to the amazon page in a reference? I'm not terribly familiar with the backstory - If you find a reference that supports that version, add it. Bloom explicitly said in a recent ABC interview that everything was legal until she reached NYC.Popeye191 (talk) 08:08, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Taylor Swift lead[edit]

I am not understanding this edit. You disagreed with one part of the lead, so you completely restored it to your preferred version? (I'm assuming it's your preferred version, since your user page says you helped promote the article to GA status.) This frankly demonstrates WP:OWN behavior and I don't appreciate it. As for this information being "not notable", could you explain? Her personal relationships have been heavily detailed in reliable sources and are arguably the most notable aspect of her life aside from her music. –Chase (talk / contribs) 19:30, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

I need to back up @Chasewc91:'s comment here, as you seem to have taken ownership of this page—I can see no other reason for making edits without clear explanations. It would be helpful to read your response, as if there is a COI, then it is best for it to be disclosed. Thanks. Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 12:59, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
It would be great if you could provide further clarity @Popeye191:, as you don't seem to be interested in Talk pages either. Thanks. Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 15:12, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
I was just in the process of responding actually but there was a few edit conflicts because you posted and then edited... I left explanations for almost all edits I made and am always happy to discuss and explain them. What crucial point in the Ethos section will be lost if we make it more concise and explain it in a single sectence in the 1989 section? I don't see anything that will be lost. The article will become unreadable if we add a section anytime Taylor comments on a music industry debate. If it particularly interests you, why not add a section to the Spotify page about artist oppoition and quote at length from anyone you want, Swift and Gene Simmons included.Popeye191 (talk) 15:19, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
I have already edited the Spotify page, but it does not merely "interest" me—these are significant occurrences that are both historical and historic. I would not bother if Swift is an obscure musician with an esoteric following—she is at the forefront of the music industry, which continues to be disrupted by technology in a major way. Does this make sense? Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 15:26, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Also, the original issue of this thread has not yet been addressed. Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 15:28, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
What point have I not addressed? Is there now any edit that I have not explained? I haven't completely reverted any of your additions or removed any core points. I've just tried to be more concise and encyclopedic.Popeye191 (talk) 15:36, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
How can you not see, @Popeye191:, that the original post of this thread was not written by me? Therein lies the original point that I also touched on. Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 02:03, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
I responded to that person on their page. I've responded to your points. If there's something you want clarified be more specific.Popeye191 (talk) 07:06, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Additions to the Taylor Swift page[edit]

The reason that I have made recent edits to the Taylor Swift page is because the period surrounding the release of the 1989 is especially significant in the biography of the singer and should be noted. I am not an avid fan simply adding content to promote her—I simply believe the new direction of Swift needs to be articulated, as it is a major change in her career. This also applies to the Ethos section, as Swift's actions in that realm now form a major part of her career and are particularly notable in light of her status as the world's biggest pop star in 2015. Of course, this may change, but the details in my contributions serve to provide readers with insight into the subject's extensive career—they are not simply nice additions. At the very least, I would request that discussions take place on the Talk page. Thanks. Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 15:23, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
