deprodded JYJ Euro tour 2014[edit]

Hello. I deprodded JYJ Euro tour 2014 and then, after doing so, realized my mistake. The article is a hoax. I apologize! I have AFD'd it now. If you want to join in, please do so. :) Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/JYJ Euro tour 2014 Shinyang-i (talk) 03:31, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Tour comments[edit]

If you are good with understanding concert and tour notability requirements, I beg of you to comment on some of the other tours listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Korea. We have a lack of quality commenters on them who can cite policy, and it's getting worse. There is so much anger and resistance to any attempt to remove anything related to kpop. Here's a handy list, if you're so inclined:

If you decide to contribute, I thank you! Have a great day! Shinyang-i (talk) 05:57, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Flor Silvestre albums[edit]

Why are you redirecting most of the articles of Flor Silvestre's albums? They are notable and contained many successful songs; that's why I created those articles. I was also planning to find verifiable references about those albums and their songs. Please, let me undo your changes so that I can add verifiable references about their notability (I'll wait for your reply). Thank you. --V. Villalvaso 20:33, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

It is best to create such articles in your userspace or sandbox first (such as User:OsotedeMonte/Flor Silvestre con el Mariachi México), find the required references, then add the articles to the encyclopedia. Just be sure your references come from reliable sources (not eBay or a site that only shows a photo of the album). Good luck. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 21:58, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Hooked on Classics[edit]

A couple of things - I don't think Hooked on Classics 1 should be marked as "low" priority. It was on the charts for a length of time, and given its ubiquitous placement in flea markets, thrift stores, and dollar bins, any album collector is familiar with it. I was going to contest the speedy of HOC 4, it has an AllMusic entry and all, but on the whole I think you're right (I've *never* seen a copy), but rather than deletion I would suggest a re-direct to Hooked on Classics (series). Thanks! 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 16:31, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

  • An Allmusic listing without even a tracklist, much less a review, means nothing. But the assessment should remain low unless/until its importance is emphasized/verified in the article by reliable sources. No album should have higher than a "Low"-importance assessment if there are no references listed. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 16:36, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
    • I have a cordial difference of opinion, perhaps. The Albums importance scale mentions likelihood of readers being familiar with the subject, and the likelyhood of there being reliable secondary sources. In this instance, I think both are higher than a "low" priority would indicate. (not to mention the absolute lack of current sources, I'll try to fix that a little bit... in a little bit). Anyway, thanks for the reply, and even more thanks for all the hard work you do around here which mostly goes unrecognized. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 16:47, 29 January 2015 (UTC)


I understand, but the policy is unambiguous: it only applies to content that has already been deleted, and it "excludes pages that are not substantially identical to the deleted version". No administrator has the right to extend an XFD's decision beyond the content that was discussed at it. Unless you can find evidence that this specific page was previously deleted at XFD, it must not be deleted as G4. Nyttend (talk) 22:25, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Category:Songs by album[edit]

Any thoughts on this new category and sub set? Cheers. --Richhoncho (talk) 19:06, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Bad. It's either a unnecessary subdivision of Category:Songs by artist or will lead to overcategorization if one decides to include later compilations as well. One will already be able to link from every song from the album article plus the ones that have been created already have a multipe album templates (e.g. {{The Dark Side of the Moon}} and {{The Dark Side of the Moon tracks}}) in each song article that aid in this type of navigation. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 20:27, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
We agree, would you like to do the honors? --Richhoncho (talk) 20:41, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
I would but can't do it now as I'm headed out (Super Bowl parties and all, y'know. :))

Songs by theme categories[edit]

I'm thinking of recreating the Category:Songs about rain, or perhaps at least Category:Songs about weather. I'm curious as to what makes one Category:Songs by theme category notable and another not notable. I'd bet that if I looked sufficiently thoroughly I could find a publication discussing songs about rain. Thoughts? - Bossanoven (talk) 01:52, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

The problem with such a category is that one ends up putting articles in there simply because a song has "rain" in the category even though the song only uses rain as an allegory rather than truly being about rain. Note that List of songs about rain was also deleted, so I'm not sure a recreation of the category will fly. I recommend talking to some people who participated in those discussions. Thanks. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 15:03, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Why'd you have to speedy all of this stuff? :( - Bossanoven (talk) 15:59, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

They've been through a deletion discussion before. As there is no improvement of what previously existed, it doesn't need to be rehashed. If you add your reason why they shouldn't be deleted on the talk pages, the speedy request might be removed and a new CfD would have to take place. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 16:04, 9 February 2015 (UTC)


Thanks for your addition. You could have just asked me to source it if you wanted one, though, I am referring to reliable sources for these additions. Regards, - Bossanoven (talk) 05:11, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Understood. Problem is, today's Bubbling Under Chart isn't truly an extension of the Hot 100, so saying something reached 105 isn't accurate because songs can't fall back into the Bubbling Under chart once they've hit the Hot 100. You can say it peaked at No. 5 on the Bubbling Under the Hot 100 chart. I don't know what the rules were back in 1967, so I wanted to provide a link to the primary source to indicate that is how Billboard itself displayed the info, as opposed to say a Joel Whitburn book or the like. Thanks. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 05:19, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

If you wish to do some more sourcing, I have spotted a bunch of Bubbling Under 100s on Parliament discography and Funkadelic discography. - Bossanoven (talk) 05:21, 15 February 2015 (UTC) Also, The Zombies discography has several. - Bossanoven (talk) 05:38, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Category:Paralympic track and field athletes of Canada[edit]

I moved the speedy discussion to a full discussion at CSD now. Please comment there if you can. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 08:16, 16 February 2015 (UTC)


You are a really fast typer/worker. I learned a few things just by looking at your edits. Thank You. also, I think the asterisks was an old reference style. Either way that was cool. (talk) 08:09, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of categories[edit]

Question: Why did you delete categories for two Joseph Csaky sculptures and one Archipenko sculpture? Coldcreation (talk) 09:15, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

My bad. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 09:21, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Request for your opinion[edit]

Good morning Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars! I noticed you've edited a topic related to Jimmy Edgar somewhat recently, and was hoping to collect viewpoints on an aesthetic issue. If you had a minute to contribute to the discussion/vote on the infobox photo, that would be very helpful. Earflaps (talk) 11:02, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Any ideas... Merle Haggard edits[edit]

I've tried leaving a message on Besmircher's Talk page about his/her edits for the Merle Haggard discography to no avail. I am trying to clean up the pages but I can't keep up! Airproofing (talk) 05:56, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

CSD mislabeled[edit]

Hi, you placed a {{db-c1}} tag on Category:2008 elections in New Zealand and Category:Sri Lanka Mitra Vibhushana. This is a problem because that tag is for categories that are empty, with no associated articles or parent categories which was not the case here. Please only use this tag on categories that are empty and that are not maintenance categories (necessary categories even if they are empty). Also, do not depopulate a category (remove the category from articles) in order to place an empty tag on it. Thanks so much for the work you do, I hope this explanation helps. Liz Read!

7 Horns 7 Eyes (EP)[edit]

Hello, SCSNLW (1st letters of each word) I was wondering why you agreed to delete my article on 7 Horns 7 Eyes (Self-titled EP). It is notable because its line-up contains the original vocalist, drummer, and guitarist. It also dates their first release. Metalworker14 (talk) 1:59 P.M. 02/25/2015

  • How does containing the original vocalist, drummer, and guitarist make an EP notable. Please read the guideline WP:N and more specifically for albums, WP:NALBUMS. If you believe EP was deleted for invalid reasons, you can request a deletion review. Thanks. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 19:24, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Elijah Blake[edit]

Hello, why did you just re-create Elijah Blake? This article has been speedied and PRODded [1] and it's been declined at AfC [2]. It also has a history of editing by sockpuppets with undeclared COIs, in violation the TOU. Why? Logical Cowboy (talk) 23:07, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

  • I never heard of the man before today, but a bio on Allmusic, a piece in Billboard about his first EP, and a full writeup in Complex Magazine seems like adequate coverage to at least warrant a stub. The guy has written songs for multiple well-known artists including Climax and has mentions in multiple articles. Feel free to AfD it. I won't be offended. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 23:24, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
