Celine Dion "Voice" Section[edit]

I've always had qualms with the short nature of the Celine Dion "Voice" section. I commend you for taking the time to research and expand the section. It assists with the encyclopedic nature of her long career, and showcases different facets of her talents from a plethora of music critics and figures. Again, thank you.

Vandalism on wikipedia[edit]

Many of the so-called sources you attach to your edits don't support your edits at all. This is outright vandalism. People actually check the sources, you know. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Belorwari20 (talkcontribs) 09:39, 26 March 2011 (UTC)


Hi there. Thanks for your work on Mariah Carey pages in general. Just wondering if you would like to join the Wikipedia:WikiProject Mariah Carey? Thanks! :)--CallMeNathanTalk2Me 18:48, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

I couldn't agree more :). I added your name. Your now part of it :D--CallMeNathanTalk2Me 19:50, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Out? In?[edit]

In the article on Joan Sutherland, could you please make up your mind whether you want a specific paragraph out or in? As the article is already overloaded with hagiographic quotes, I followed your original instinct and removed the paragraph again. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 03:16, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

(copied from User talk:Michael Bednarek)
I have rv the "Technique" paragraph because the Voice section is full of hagiographic quote, but she was renowed for her flawless technique--except her diction and sometimes her intonation, it was perfect. So, I want to reintroduce this paragraph. SemiramideSutherland (talk) 07:36, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Fine; I agree that the few slightly critical quotes should be preserved. I was just confused by your contradictory edits. If you visit the Sutherland article again, it would be useful if the plethora of hagiographic terms and quotes could be streamlined. Quotes of more than 200 words like the one from a 1971 Times article create an undue weight. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 06:31, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

YouTube as a source[edit]

Hello, SemiramideSutherland. I had to revert your edits to the Whitney Houston article because social networking sites such as YouTube generally are not considered reliable sources on Wikipedia. See Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources#Self-published_sources (online and paper). The only times it's allowed as a reliable source is if it's coming from an official YouTube page of a reliable source (like CNN, etc., a star's official YouTube page), is used to support information about a YouTube star (such as Chris Crocker, Jenna Marbles, etc.), or is used as an external link in the External links section so long as you follow what is laid out in WP:YOUTUBE.
