Use appropriate edit summaries, please[edit]

this edit summary is completely inappropriate. As you note, we are an encyclopaedia, and we expect more from our editors than calling article subjects "dumb b****s" on a publicly accessible page. I have deleted your edit summary. In the future, behave with more propriety. Ironholds (talk) 13:05, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Synchro page[edit]

Hi, After some experimenting, I was able to move your article! What I did was click on the 'move' button, delete the incubator portion of the title, and then pick (article) from the drop-down list. Wiki then let me move the article out of the incubator. Hergilei (talk) 00:50, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. :) -- Puisque (talk) 00:51, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Requesed move formatting[edit]

Please note that per WP:RM instructions, you're supposed to start a new section with a header for the requested move. This functions as the link target the bot uses to list requested moves. If you don't provide a proper header, then the linkages go weird. -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 03:50, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't have the nerves to read the manual properly, my laptop keeps crashing... -- Puisque (talk) 03:56, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
All requested moves are supposed to have a header attached, so that people can properly access the discussion. As with this discussion area on your talk page, requested moves should begin with a new section header
== new discussion header ==
The two requested moves you recently filed where missing them. So, for future references, when you next file a requested move, please remember to either add a title in the "subject/headline" area when you press "new section", or manually add one in directly with the above code just above where you had the requested move material you used in the two recently filed move requests. (obviously, it shouldn't say "new discussion header", but something appropriate instead, like for example "move article to Baltic Seafloor" or something) -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 06:10, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! -- Puisque (talk) 09:33, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Proper nouns[edit]

Hi there, I noticed your alterations to Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in which you decapitalised the word "contest". You may wish to know that the "Eurovision Song Contest" is a brand name, and therefore is a proper noun. Proper noun's are capitalised, and so any references to the term "contest" needs to use a capital C. WesleyMouse 21:08, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

So...."Eurovision Song Contest is blablabla...this and that...The Contest is held every year."? Sorry, but could you link me to some WP guideline page for that assertion? "Eurovision Song Contest" is brand name, "contest" is not a brand name, even if refers to the ESC. -- Puisque (talk) 21:32, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
It is grammatical context, and I did provide a link to proper nouns in this very thread title. English is my native language, and if a brand is being referred to then it needs to maintain capitalisation. Eurovision Song Contest is a brand name that has been around since 1956. So when one refers to the "contest" in retrospect of "Eurovision Song Contest" then contest would be capitalised. For example if someone was to say "it is just a contest of who is best", then contest is not a brand and therefore does not need to be capitalised. The same would go if one was to say "The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the biggest contests in the world". The latter use of the word contest is in a different grammatical context. But if you were to say "The last time Sweden won was at the 1999 Contest", then we're shortening the term 1999 Eurovision Song Contest, therefore "Contest" is capitalised. Its all about grammar and the context a word is being used, which would determine whether a word is a proper noun or not. WesleyMouse 21:43, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, you did link to a Wikipedia article, but the article says nothing about these kinds of cases (ESC ... the contest/Contest). An aside: you don't have to mention English is your native language, I can see that by checking your page, and besides it doesn't make your assertion about the subject any more reliable: I still would like to have the proper links to WP guidelines or reliable non-WP sources (renowned style guides for British English, etc.). Thank you! -- Puisque (talk) 22:01, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Did you miss the part about 'proper names'? I merely mentioned English about being my native language, as not everyone checks a user's page to verify their known languages. So please, assume good in that referencing to my native tongue. And there doesn't need to be WP guidelines in regards to grammatical correctness. Grammatical correctness is common logic in English linguistics. It would be like saying we need WP guidelines to capitalise people's names - you just wouldn't ask for such guidelines, as it is a known factor that we would capitalise a name. Proper nouns/proper names become capitalised in English linguistics. The fact that we're using the word "contest" on its own and in the context referral to the Eurovision Song Contest (which is the proper name) means we would capitalise it, as we've shortened the term Eurovision Song Contest, to merely "The Contest". It is an easy error to make for people unfamiliar with grammatical correctness. WesleyMouse 22:14, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm. I read through the article and I couldn't see any passage where it takes stance on whether to capitalise a single common noun (contest), picked out of a proper name (Eurovision Song Contest) and still referring to the proper name. Please, let me know if you think this kind of a case is mentioned somewhere in the article.
A "known factor"? There are loads of WP guidelines about grammar, so apparently all grammar rules are not "known factors". I understand your point (the "Contest" refers to the "Eurovision Song Contest" because "Contest" is capitalised in the proper name, ESC), but I still consider it unnecessary capitalisation (it is perfectly visible from the context what "Contest" refers to: if making sure the reader knows that it refers to the specific contest is the whole point of that rule), unless I see some rules in WP or renowned non-WP sources. -- Puisque (talk) 22:44, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
I feel you might be failing to grasp the concept of this issue here, and what I am trying to explain. I know I can get very complexed with my explanations, which I sincerely apologise if that has occurred on this occasion. Although you have actually hit the nail on the head yourself when you mention ESC. The C is capitalised, as is its full version 'Eurovision Song Contest'. Because we are using the word 'contest' elsewhere in the article in reference to the actual Eurovision Song Contest, means we also need to capitalise the C, as we've just shortened the whole brand to "Contest" for simplicity. We could easily extend the word so that the whole brand name is used, but as the words are linking to the Eurovision Song Contest articles (which again are capitalised) then we have shortened the word and whilst maintaining the capital C. Anyhow, I have asked another editor to come along here and explain things a little better, just in case the complexity of my explanations are becoming overly confusing. WesleyMouse 22:56, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
I get your point perfectly: ES Contest -> Contest, because the letter C is capped in the actual trademark. Just the fact that the actual word "contest" in itself is not a trademark, it makes me doubtful about the necessity of the capital letter. Do you happen to know anyone who might own, e.g., The Oxford Style Manual? I would assume they have rules (or guidelines) for these cases as well. -- Puisque (talk) 23:20, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── To put it more simplistically the article uses context for example: 2011 Contest, or 1980 Contest. The word contest is capitalised because we are referring to the context of 2011 Eurovision Song Contest or 1980 Eurovision Song Contest, and thus the contextual meaning of 'contest' maintains the trademark version, we've just chosen to omit the words 'Eurovision Song' and opted for a simplistic word 'Contest'. If we were to merely say "it was just a contest to see who was best", then the contextual meaning changes as there is no reference to which contest we're talking about, and thus it becomes a common noun. Basically the context in what we are meaning can change how a word is stylised. WesleyMouse 23:30, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Maybe this will help http://www.k12reader.com/proper-nouns/ which states

  • The rules for capitalizing proper nouns are pretty simple. Proper nouns always begin with a capital letter.

However there are times when a word can be used as either a common noun or proper noun and you might get confused as to when you should use the capitalized form. For example, “father” can either be common or proper.

  • One rule for thumb is that if you are using the word as a title and name it should be capitalized.
  • “I had dinner with my father last night.”
  • “Would you like to have dinner with me, Father?”
  • See the difference? In the first example the word was used more generally as a common noun. In the second example, the word was used like a name. In this instance the term “father” took the place of the actual name, such as “Bob.”

The same rule would apply for contest. If the word was used more generally, then it becomes a decapitalised word. However, as we are using the word for an actual name/entity (in this case Eurovision Song Contest) then capitalisation is used to stipulate that we are referring to an entity and not a common word.

Tied positions on Finnish chart[edit]

I have reverted your edit to the list of Finnish number-one singles in 2013. There are often unbroken ties in the Finnish charts, see this week's download chart for example. [1] There are ties for numbers 8, 16, 22 (three songs sharing this position), 25, 27 and 30. In these cases, the following number is not given to any song (e.g. if there are two number one songs, the next best selling song is number three). Therefore, the information for week 9 is not erroneous. The same applies to the Finnish album and singles charts; in most weeks there are at least two records with the same chart position. While I do not like tied positions in charts (especially charts with low sales such as the Finnish chart, resulting in this happening almost weekly), the chart compilers have made the decision not to break ties, and I believe this should be respected in order to provide the correct information. There has been one other case where two songs tied for number one on the download chart, i.e. week 48 in 2011. [2] YuckieDuck (talk) 20:21, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

RE: Template Lady Gaga[edit]

Oh okay. The edit I made changed it to the songs template, such as Template: Jennifer Lopez songs, Rihanna songs, Katy Perry songs, etc. Since Gaga has a wide discography, and with many of her songs having articles, it looks much more organized, since the amount "other songs" is roughy bigger than the amount of her actual singles.

Kentucky ruling[edit]

All rulings are pending for 30 days and then become final. That allows time for typos to be found and, once upon a time, for the printer to do the work. The difference with KY is that the judge issued no "order". It's the fact that he has not ordered anyone to do anything that makes it different. He's going to hold a hearing first and decide what to do.

In other cases -- cases without an idiosyncratic judge -- there's a decision followed promptly by an order that may or not be stayed. In SSM cases the order is usually stayed as in VA last night. KY is one of a kind.

Calling the KY decision a "memorandum opinion" doesn't change this. It's a decision. A decision that hasn't been formally published. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 18:52, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Repost of Category:Number-one albums in the United States[edit]

Information icon A tag has been placed on Category:Number-one albums in the United States requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia, because it appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion process. If you can indicate how it is different from the previously posted material, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.svg which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's discussion directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please contact the administrator who deleted the page or use deletion review instead of recreating the page. Thank you.

Here are links to various discussions over the years in which consensus is to have lists of number-one albums not categories for them due to category clutter amongst other reasons.

Of course, consensus can change but that should be brought up for a broader discussion at the appropriate WikiProjects. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 01:01, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
