Thanks We hope. A happy new year to you also. Also well-wishes to all who dropped by for the holiday season. Apologies that I was mostly inactive for the latter part of December. Just busy with my many blessings, starting with my family. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 20:54, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Request on 15:37:31, 4 January 2018 for assistance on AfC submission by Passportgang[edit]

Hey 78.26, Just in regards to the B-Nasty discography, the album on the discography contains multiple artists on wikipedia. I had a few other references other then discogs, and imdb & apple. Digital Journal seems to be a decent source, I also have found another reference. would this help? I've worked on a few discography articles before and I've seen less references this this.

What else would need to be added? I was going to create the artists wikipedia profile after his discography unsigned post by Passportgang 15:48, 4 January 2018.

Update, the artist also has Authority Control such as a VIAF ID and so forth. Passportgang (talk) 15:37, 4 January 2018 (UTC) Hi Passportgang! Thanks for writing. Usually a discography doesn't require as stringent notability requirements, but that is because the notability of the artist is firmly established. Since notability hasn't been established yet, then WP:N would be needed to support the discography. Beware of WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. My recommendation would be to create the article about the artist first, and add the discography to the artist's article, unless the discography is so extensive that leaving it in the article would make the article unreadable. As it stands, I don't think it would. All the best, 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 15:50, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for that 78.26 I have these articles. & would this provide notability? for the discography and also be a good reference for the artist? i've already added them to the discography. should I resubmit?

also I have another question, so the artist has links to them from other discographies, does this help with notability. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Passportgang (talkcontribs) 16:00, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Conrad Thibault[edit]

I appreciate your note about my contributions to Conrad Thibault. I didn't know anything about him until I ran across his name when I was doing research for The Gibson Family article. I noticed the lack of inline citations, so I made a note to go back later to try to supply some citations. Some of the sources that I added inline were already listed under "Sources", but fortunately I was able to find some additional information. I was especially glad to discover information about his first wife and add it to the article. Eddie Blick (talk) 21:56, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

@Teblick: Yes, I wrote that article very early in my Wikipedia "career", and I didn't know how to utilize inline citations yet. Some of the sources are no longer available to me, unfortunately. I was very glad to see the article so vastly improved. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 21:59, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
I didn't realize that you were the article's creator. I recently completed my fourth year of work on Wikipedia, and I have learned so much (about both Wikipedia and various subjects) over that span. Much of the credit goes to you and We hope for your help in my early days, when I often became frustrated, thinking that I would never get the knack of how this system functioned. You two were the ones who taught me and encouraged me to keep at it, and I greatly appreciate the help that both of you gave me. Eddie Blick (talk) 22:23, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Those are very kind words, thank you. Of course, it has reached the point where I should be asking you for advice. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 22:34, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Kind sirs-may I slide down the Wikipedia firepole to offer you some free "gifts" at no cost to you? :) PD photo of Conrad Thibault and some other cite-able information about him? Before his singing career, he was a store floorwalker. He did quite a few radio shows-Manhattan Merry Go Round was one of them, and went on to "The Tent Show" from "Gibson". he was also active in some trade organizations related to music and had taken a Hollywood screen test. No idea why he never went into film. There was a late 1940's television program he was a regular on, but this is sketchy re: details right now. Have more "freebie" photos of him and some for the Gibson show, so am not neglecting anyone. :-D We hope (talk) 18:30, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
