Edit summary[edit]

"there shouldn't be any sources in lede which the body should substantiate"

Can you point to the guideline / policy to which you are referring? I don't entirely understand your edit summary. Thanks, Bretonbanquet (talk) 23:20, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

You'll note that your removal of the reference at Adele has immediately resulted in someone reverting to "English". I suspect that's why the reference for "British" was there. Her father is Welsh, so "English" is not appropriate without a source. Bretonbanquet (talk) 23:34, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I understand. Yes, everything in the lead should be backed up in the article body. That said, perWP:CITELEAD, the lead is subject to the same verification policy as the rest of the article, and there's no exception to citation requirements specific to the lead. I feel that if something in the lead is subject to edit-warring, then a citation might be suitable. A hidden note might work, and we could perhaps put the citation in the article body. Bretonbanquet (talk) 03:16, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

I change the word 35 million albums into the original statement (35 million records) from the reliable source I provide at Adele Bio.

And please take some time to see this list (List of best-selling music artists) Adele has a change to become the part of the list as she can reach 76m-claim with her certification total (please read the talk section).

And I'm working on it now to get Adele into it. thanks Politsi (talk) 10:06, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

UK christmas Number 1[edit]

Hey there can you please fix my change on the UK christmas Number 1 as I don't know how to fix it properly, The changes I have made are about spice girls and there songs as they where never Xmas number 1 I have put the link to verify what I am saying here this shows you that they were never and as they are the regulators of the charts, I am sure you can see that they are right in this case. I don't know how to edit that well so would be really appreciated if you could do it for me.

Thanks you and hope you can help me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.29.36.88 (talk) 15:52, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

It wasn't accidental, but the IP contacted me, and I thought I had misread it, so I assumed good faith. Guess not, though, and I fell for it, so thanks. :) - Amaury (talk) 17:37, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Spice girls changes on Xmas Number 1's.[edit]

Please may you keep the changes as I have stated to both of you that spice girls were never Xmas number 1. Please look at this linkhttp://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/all-the-number-1-singles__7931 as they regulate the charts, So I would hope you and anyone else who reads this believe me and keep my changes as they are true. And the official charts company states that for Xmas number 1 you have to be on Christmas or Sunday before never after So anyway thank you and please keep the changes. 92.29.36.88 (talk) 19:13, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

hey[edit]

Thank you for the recent edits you made on the Calvin Harris page. I am so excited to collaborate to take to a better quality. Have a nice day!

  • That is exactly what I said abut the article when I made my first edit, it was a mess...it had a let of information to begin with but the organization wasn't good. --Meryam90 (talk)

Coldplay[edit]

Hi. Why order change? 'Cause Coldplay is currently "pop rock", since a long time. They left behind Alternative rock since the years of Parachutes. The last years, counting "Viva la Vida", "Mylo Xyloto" and "Ghost Stories" have a pop rock sound and there are many references of this. Greetings.

Calvin Harris[edit]

I'm using my ears listening to the the leads, the synths, the stabs, the saws, the bass, the kick, the clap, the snare, the tempo and the use of reverb, noise, delay and filter and experience as a DJ. How do you think the people that wrote those article determined the genre of his songs? "The hidden secret book of how to determine music genres"? There are no rules or regulations on how to determine the genre of an song, so stop being a robot "UHH, NO SOURCE, STOP" So hey, how about we take this to the talk section? — Preceding unsigned comment added by BrandonWLam (talkcontribs) 20:34, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

  • RyanTQuinn, please leave off the edit warring. You could propose something on the talk page, but right now all I'm seeing is a random note dropped into the general article. Drmies (talk) 17:32, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

September 2015[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Heavy metal music. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Drmies (talk) 19:42, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Gareth Bale[edit]

Hi, I don't mind someone reverting my edits. But this time I did the edit looking at the the page of the national team on Wikipedia. It says 55 caps and 20 goals. And you say 54 and 19. And the page was updated after the recent match. Cheers!!! NextGenSam619t@lk 03:05, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Was removing the photo of x-mas decorations in Kolkata very necessary ?[edit]

Christmas is today,a global festival,celebrated by christians and non-christians alike . As a matter of fact, even in a Hindu majority nation like India, civic bodies take the effort of decorating public places with x-mas goods...just to take pat in the fun of the festival. Kolkata is home to Asia's oldest church,the St. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL where an elaborate mass is organized. Hence i beleive, adding a photo of x-mas celebration in Kolkata,India won't be much of a trouble,unless you wish to confine x-mas only to the americas and europe.

Ed Sheeran's page[edit]

Listen, this isn't a edit it however you want web site, if I was inserting false and unnecessary information, I would completely understand why you have a problem. But I'm fixing Efe's bad grammar, and deleting unnecessary information, that aren't important enough to be on the page. For example, stating that Ed Sheeran and his brother were both born with red hair and share the same sharp facial features is COMPLETELY unnecessary. The reader would not care if they have the same features or not. But I did add the birth month and day, since Efe is attempting to add Matthew's birthday. STOP playing favoritism and read which edits makes the most since. THIS is why Wikipedia is considered an unreliable source. The page was perfect the way it was, then it became "a make it my way" thing. The idea is to contribute to the page. You won't even let anybody else do that. No one is greater than the other. I know a lot of things about Sheeran that is completely accurate, and is not on the page. I'm even clearly and completely stating my reasonings for the edits, which YOU obviously didn't read, because in less than a minute, you reverse everything back to the "not making sense" stage. So nobody else is allow to edit Ed Sheeran's page, except for you and Efe. Kalope (talk) 18:49, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

And it turns out, that you have a history of edit warring too. Very hypocritical. But I'm avoiding an edit war, unlike you. Kalope (talk) 04:31, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Kalope, I intend to bring the article to GA. There's a lot of information out already, I concur. I'd like this to work, I mean having to collaborate with other editors. My grammar is not perfect, not even close to being good; I am not a native speaker, FYI. So if it reads really awkward, please do polish. I haven't checked everything you changed, but I noticed this. We normally use "in" for incomplete dates such as August 2015. Also, the word "which" has to follow very closely to the thing it refers, which in this case is the debut album of Lawson; hence the date was put elsewhere. As for content, maybe we can discuss it on the talk page. Cheers! --Efe (talk) 08:05, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Being a selfish user, not an editor.[edit]

If the symbol +, was put directly behind a word, that would be understanding, but it's by itself, so the obvious pronunciation is plus. And stop telling me cease, like you have a certain authority, you have no title, except for "one who makes weak excuses to control a page". How old are you? You don't even respond to comments and complaints people make about you. GROW UP!!!!! Kalope (talk) 17:44, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:08, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Tyson Fury[edit]

Dear friend, I hope you are well. With respect, you are very wrong to be insisting on the neutrality template on the controversies section. The very fact that the section exists shows that he IS controversial. If we agree on that, and you say you do, please explain why the section lacks neutrality WITHOUT giving your own personal viewpoint on Fury's psychology or without making your own subjective editorial comments (Fury was "joking" etc as one editor inserted). The article contains proper sources and every time Fury has denied a prejudice it has been quoted. So, please, go look at the David Irving page, or the page on someone else known to be outrageous and offensive, and let's see how long a "neutrality" template would last there. I mean you no personal disrespect. I just think you are very mistaken. Regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 12:00, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Queen[edit]

Please go to the Talk page if you really have an issue with a very well documented fact about Bohemian Rhapsody. If you claim to know about Queen you know that they are credited with popularizing the music video. Rodericksilly (talk) 14:24, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

David Bowie[edit]

Maybe you can have the decency to discuss rather than mindlessly revert. CassiantoTalk 19:12, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

So let me get this right: You are failing to discuss the changes as per BRD; maintaining your edit warring, and now, are failing to disclose here as to why you think it's ok to edit warr? I'd be interested to hear your opinion. Frankly I have better things to do rather than maintain the war, but you may find it useful in reading said guidelines if your going to survive around here. CassiantoTalk 19:26, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
Seeing as you are too lazy, I've done your job for you on the Bowie talk page, if you'd care to take part, which I expect you won't. CassiantoTalk 19:31, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Your David Bowie edit[edit]

Hello, you seem to feel strongly that "New York City, New York" is too much information for Wikipedia bios and that it must be only "New York City." You only reason stated was that "New York" may not be absolutely necessary, but what is your explicit reason to shorten it to "New York City?" That is also anything but mandatory, and including the state is far more common on Wikipedia. Thanks for any insight (besides "John really wanted it this way") that you may be able to provide for your edit. Omnibus (talk) 18:27, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

The better question would be "What does this information actually add?" Are there multiple other New York Cities and this provides clarification? Not as far as I am aware. --John (talk) 18:34, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
That was my thinking John. It just seems excessive for somewhere as famous as NYC. RyanTQuinn (talk) 18:43, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Sadiq Khan Personal Life Edit[edit]

Dear sir forgive me as I don't know how wiki works very well but edited this politician's personal life to correctly state the politician claimed he was "an agnostic actually" when it was asserted he was a Muslim during a BBC 2010 Question Time live debate show. This edit was sourced with the QT episode and a YT clip of the debate. It is part of his personal life that he was an agnostic and relevant to his biography. MKPoosh (talk) 17:25, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Gordon Ramsay[edit]

Seeing that the version with the text "Scottish-born British" was stable for quite some time, you can say that there was consensus to keep it that way. But you clearly prefer the edit wars between the people who say he is a Scot (as he was born there and sometimes mentioned to be Scottish) and those people who say he is a Briton (as that is the colour of his passport). Good luck with that. The Banner talk 23:02, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
