Wade Mainer[edit]

Hi. I've had to remove a large portion of your contributions to Wade Mainer because you did not provide any citations so that the material that you added can be verified. Wikipedia articles, especially those about living people cannot contain any uncited material. If you can provide a citation for this material, you are more than welcome to re-insert the material or, if you'd prefer, you can provide me with the citation, I'll reinsert it myself, since I obviously have an interest in making Mainer's article as complete as possible! Cheers, CP 14:34, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Edits to Blind Alfred Reed April 2008[edit]

Article is much improved, looks great. (Gulf3 (talk) 01:57, 24 April 2008 (UTC))

Riley Puckett at Midwestern Hayride[edit]

I read it in the Hayride article. But Puckett died in 1947 and the Midwestern Hayride started around 1948, maybe 1947. What's your source for Puckett's membership or guest appereance? The yodeling cowboy (talk) 11:18, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Fate Norris living dates[edit]

Hello Popiloll, I just saw your additions you made in the Skillet Lickers article concerning Fate Norris. His death date is a very rare information, I didn't know when he died. What's your source? Regards, The yodeling cowboy (talk) 22:09, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

The source for his death date originates from the Spring 1997 volume of the Chattooga County Historic Society Quarterly. See this link. --Popiloll (talk) 13:22, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Very interesting conversation. I will update Norris' german article with this information. Thanks, The yodeling cowboy (talk) 10:12, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Jim Eanes article[edit]

Hi Popiloll! Thanks for the new article on Jim Eanes, and for all your work on other bluegrass and old-time music articles. Regards, Chuckiesdad 16:15, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Ron Wylie[edit]

Hi, and thanks for correcting Ron Wylie's date of birth. But please don't remove the hidden Persondata section from biographical articles. It's supposed to be there: see WP:Persondata to read about it. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 12:13, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I just couldn't understand why it was supposed to be there. Now I do. My mistake.--Popiloll (talk) 12:23, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
No probs!! and keep up the good work with the dobs. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 12:25, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Uncle Dave Macon[edit]

Nice work on the Uncle Dave Macon article. The overhaul I was mulling for the article is now no longer necessary. I simply add a few sentences to the lede and a brief section on his playing style. Bms4880 (talk) 00:53, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

David Fishel[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting it into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other articles that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Dates of birth[edit]

I just wanted to say what a fantastic job you've done on the bio pages. When do you find time to sleep? You fully deserve the barnstar which will no doubt be heading your way. All the best. Dalliance (talk) 09:20, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

I'll second that! Absolutely marvellous effort on your part. Thanks for all that work! Dsp13 (talk) 15:34, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Blind Alfred Reed[edit]

Regarding the {{pagenumbers}} tag I added to Blind Alfred Reed, is it not possible to pin down page numbers for the entries in "Bibliography"? --AbsolutDan (talk) 12:14, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

I don't get it? The page numbers are shown under "notes" and not under "bibliography". I don't see the problem here? --Popiloll (talk) 18:57, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
My mistake! I wasn't looking closely enough at these sections. In some articles I've seen, these 2 types of sections are independent, wherein the "notes" section is more like a standalone "references" section (don't ask me why). Now that I'm looking at these sections correctly, I see how they're properly connected. Sorry to waste your time. --AbsolutDan (talk) 23:07, 17 April 2009 (UTC)


Barnstar of Diligence.png Gold Barnstar
For winning the Total Corrections contest for Biographical pages with several incompatible dates of birth, I hereby award you this Gold Barnstar! Your outstanding final score of 3133 corrections was more than all of the other competitors combined, and you often fixed entries that others had left behind because they were too difficult. It is safe to say that without your help, this drive would never have been completed. Thank you. --Cryptic C62 · Talk 22:48, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Butch Baker[edit]

Just letting you know. a.) When listing a birth date, please use the {{birth date and age}} template if the person is still alive. and b.) The sources you added weren't reputable; I swapped them out for a better source that verifies the date.

Jewel/Paula/Ronn Records[edit]

A linkable citation was found that refutes your claim that Sue Records was a sublabel of Jewel/Paula/Ronn Records. Sue Records of Louisiana owned Jewel/Paula/Ronn at one time. Steelbeard1 (talk) 14:37, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
