Multiple reverts[edit]

I know a way you can make your editing more efficient. I've noticed that you sometimes correct vandalism and fix things up by reverting two or three edits in a row. You can do it all in one edit from the article's history page by selecting the date stamp for the last good version you want to revert to. That will load the old version of the page, and if you select "Edit", you are now ready to save the page to a restored version. Use "Show changes" first, to see exactly what changes you'll be making. Make sure you don't wipe out any constructive edits that were made in between.

I appreciate the work you've been doing, and am confident that you will not use these powers for evil. Cheers. Willondon (talk) 12:17, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 22:45, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

TPAB global sales[edit]

Hey there. I've been following TPAB's sales updates on chartnews twitter (unreliable source for WP, but kinda accurate) and it surpassed 1 million WW months ago. Is rare that an American music publication gives WW sales, worse for a hip-hop album, so here editors use the most random sources. I found this from Ici Radio-Canada Télé, confirming 1M, is pretty known in Canada, like iHeartRadio. Need a second opinion. Cornerstonepicker (talk) 00:02, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

I don't know about the link, but I think it's ok to be added to the article. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 19:01, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Chime in on this RfC?[edit]

Hi. Would you be willing to weigh in on this RfC regarding genres at Axis: Bold as Love? There's been little input, and the RfC's been relisted a few times to encourage more discussion. Dan56 (talk) 02:16, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

RfC: I Am... Sasha Fierce[edit]

Hi. Would you mind weighing in on this RfC, which involves whether this statement--verified by several sources (1, 2, 3)--should be removed: "I Am... Sasha Fierce received generally mediocre reviews from critics"; "mediocre" paraphrased from "lukewarm". Dan56 (talk) 20:03, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

The RfC's been changed to "mediocre reviews" (my attempt to compromise). You originally voted "oppose" the removal of a statement reading "lukewarm reviews"; does this change your position, if it were "mediocre reviews"? Dan56 (talk) 10:04, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
@Dan56: I was opposing to the statement "mixed to positive". I think "mediocre" or "lukewarm" might be a better phrase for how you discuss the album's reception. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 07:00, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

AnyDecentMusic RfC[edit]

Hi there. :) About starting this RfC - I think it's a good idea, but it makes it harder to see what discussion happened when if you just turn the section into an RfC as it is. I've moved the RfC discussion to a new subsection - if you'd like to replace my comment there with something better describing your proposal (or rewording Dan56's proposal), please feel free. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 07:19, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

@Mr. Stradivarius: Thanks for the help. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 02:49, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

FAC: House of Music[edit]

Howdy. Would you care to review or comment at my nomination of House of Music for featured status? It's been quite slow getting input from reviewers. Dan56 (talk) 20:31, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply. Using an artist's twitter account to verify they said something via twitter makes sense, but I would discourage using material that isn't covered by third-party sources, which not only have editorial oversight and ensure stronger reliability, but they also show by covering something that what they are covering is notable and worthy of including it in an article IMO. Personally I don't find this to be an interesting read or all that relevant to understanding Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin': "Cudi teased a feature when he wrote on Twitter: "I may or may not have MGMT on the album". I understand that would mean less material in the article, since I see lots there uses his Tweets, but the reality of many articles is that their topics aren't that important if measured by the actual coverage they receive. Dan56 (talk) 20:06, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
@Dan56: I agree what you're saying, I'm not a fan using Twitter as reliable source when they are better sources can be find. I also ask Ss112 about this topic as well, and he give me a note from WP:TWITTER that states: "Self-published and questionable sources may be used as sources of information about themselves, usually in articles about themselves or their activities, without the self-published source requirement that they be published experts in the field, so long as: [...] the material is neither unduly self-serving nor an exceptional claim; there is no reasonable doubt as to its authenticity; [and] the article is not based primarily on such sources". So he give me advice to just archived the sources from becoming dead links and I did just that. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 15:00, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Starboy reverts[edit]

Do you see that IP user reverting me? Do you agree with him? I've never seen anybody say that who played what instrument on what song wasn't allowed to be in the Personnel section. it seems odd they would revert me. I took like 40 min doing that Personnel section. I shouldn't have done the individual tracks on the producers. SMirC-medium.svg --Jennica / talk 00:01, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

@Jennica: Well I don't have much to say on the matter, but I don't agree with this IP's opinion. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 18:40, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi. I reverted it because it looked like they removed the certification. That's what it looked like on my end anyway. It was a mistake I guess. Sorry! --Jennica / talk 10:02, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
@Jennica: No need to apologize for your mistake, the edit made by the IP appears to be a test edit, but remove it shortly after. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 05:03, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Your opinion[edit]

IP's edits to I Decided[edit]

I was going to say, I think you should go ahead and report 24.178.2.82 (talk · contribs). They don't seem to have any concept of proper grammar or the Manual of Style, and they are continuing to be disruptive and change the prose on I Decided (album). I think with your warnings and mine, it adds up to enough to be reported. Ss112 12:05, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

@Ss112: Who never behind these edits is possibly using multiple accounts too. I have reported another IP earlier and have Laser brain to blocked this editor. Now it seems the editor is using another IP access and continue these test edits to articles (especially hip hop articles). Just take a look at Hurricane Chris (rapper) edit history, the edits are almost the same. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 07:11, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, it looks like the same user using different IPs one after the other. Maybe you can tell Laser brain again, or report them however you did last time. Their grammar is terrible, and their changes are disruptive as they keep making them and add nothing constructive. Ss112 13:27, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
@Ss112: I agreed, I will reported this IP right away. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 07:42, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

DJ Khaled[edit]

Hey Peanuts, I see that you are a very good contributor to DJ Khaled's album Major Key and i got to ask you a question. Somebody made his new upcoming album Grateful with no refs to it, should it be a redirect or do we leave it as it is. JustDoItFettyg (talk) 01:07, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

@JustDoItFettyg: It's too early for an article for this upcoming album, right now we only know the single, so delete the article until we get more news on it. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 19:26, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Okay Thanks, I just wasn't sure if we should of kept the page or not. JustDoItFettyg (talk) 01:53, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
@JustDoItFettyg: It barely been a year since DJ Khaled released his latest album, like I said earlier, if we get more information of this upcoming album, we should have see it on iTunes or other music related sites, as a pre-order release. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 20:16, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve Tell Your Friends (The Weeknd song)[edit]

Hi, I'm CaroleHenson. Thanks for creating Tell Your Friends (The Weeknd song)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. There are references for the weekly charts, but not for the text within the article, so I have tagged the article to improve the references.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.–CaroleHenson (talk) 15:17, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

American recording artist[edit]

Humble (song) has "recording artist". I see this on a lot of hip hop related articles. Would "American rapper" be better? thanks --Jennica / talk 22:40, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

@Jennica: According to Ss112, "Recording artist" is still rarely used on Wikipedia. We use more general terms. And I agreed with him on that, so I think "American rapper" make more sense. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 17:57, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
I can't remember if it was you or someone else who also was against the use of "eponymous".. someone just added it to Harry Styles (album). What do you think? --Jennica / talk 01:50, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
@Jennica: I never edit anything in that article, I mostly edit articles that are related to hip-hop and R&B. So it isn't me. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 21:05, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Question[edit]

I saw that you like the panda express so, is the food there good? We used to have one in my town but it was shutdown before I moved there. Dinah Kirkland (talk) 23:16, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

@Dinah Kirkland: We don't ask that kind of question here because it have nothing to do with Wikipedia, but I will say the food is fine. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 19:22, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
Okay sorry but thank you. Dinah Kirkland (talk) 00:26, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

4:44[edit]

Hi. I was wondering if you could look through 4:44 (album) and see if anything needs to be reworded, since you have made a lot of articles. I have written a bulk of the article and I am not totally confident in the wording of some things... and nobody has changed much of it so far. If not, that's ok. thanks --Jennica / talk 04:52, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

@Jennica: I don't see nothing wrong with the article, it's looks okay to me. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 01:12, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I added a little bit now and I feel it's a little disjointed. Hopefully someone will make it a little more cohesive. thanks for all your expansion on Big Fish Theory btw. --Jennica / talk 11:27, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
@Jennica: Your welcome. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 07:12, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Genre of Slide (Calvin Harris song)[edit]

Hi User:TheAmazingPeanuts, can you tell me what these sources ([1], [2], [3],[4]) are calling "Slide" by Calvin Harris please? I don't know when a music writer's not specific enough for it to be certain that the genres named are specifically in reference to the song, but I know it has to be explicitly and directly called a genre though (not just "influenced" or "mixed").--Theo Mandela (talk) 07:26, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

@Theo Mandela: Am not that good when it comes to genres, I myself ask editor's opinions about what genres are correct based on what source they on. So I think you should ask another editor about this topic. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 03:43, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
User:TheAmazingPeanuts, could you recommend any users please?--Theo Mandela (talk) 08:51, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Be careful ;-)[edit]

I saw your report at AIV regarding Wanye04 and noticed the edit war going on at Rather You Than Me. I've blocked the user for 24 hours; just wanted to give you a friendly warning to make sure that you also don't violate 3RR and engage in edit warring yourself ;-). Keep in mind that if it's not an action that's listed as exempt from 3RR, it's generally going to be considered content-related by others. It doesn't matter "how correct" your revision is or "how incorrect" theirs are; it all counts :-). Anyways, thanks for the AIV report - it's all taken care of. It's good to run into you again; hope you're having a good weekend :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 20:04, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

@Oshwah: I don't want to get in a edit war with this editor in the first place, I could just ask another editor to revert the edits for me, like I did before. The problem about the edits that they are not supported by reliable sources, and the editor have a history of get in a edit war with another editor before. I wasn't surprised that you respond to me about my reverts on at the article you mentioned, I might have violate the three-revert rule for keep reverting the editor's edits, so I sorry for the trouble.

Move review for Damn (Kendrick Lamar album)[edit]

Lil Uzi Vert[edit]

So is it possible that I could use that source on Lil Uzi Vert's page instead of Luv Is Rage 2? SuperLuigi22 (talk) 22:31, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

@SuperLuigi22: I think you can, I asked a follow editor about the source here, and she agreed that the source only describes the music of Lil Uzi Vert. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 17:40, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Nice! Thanks! SuperLuigi22 (talk) 22:46, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Culture (Migos album)[edit]

As I said, anybody can contribute something to WP:ALBUMS/SOURCES if they think it's a reputable source. If an RSN discussion deemed it wasn't, then it shouldn't be on there. Not everything on Wikipedia will be consistent and not every user checks RSN. Now to the other matter: as several admins told you a while ago when you brought up several IP addresses who edited them, your persistent reversions of any contributions to hip hop album pages is getting to the point where you're acting like you WP:OWN them instead of what you actually are: just one of many contributors to those pages. If your material is challenged in a revert, you don't keep reverting convinced that you are right. Per WP:BRD, you discuss. Also, just because somebody else has the current revision and has changed something on a hip hop page on your watchlist, does not mean you need to go in and edit again so yours is. That's what it looks like sometimes. Ss112 05:32, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

@Ss112: I don't know what you talking about, no admins have never tell me about I own these articles, you just see it that way, and the IP addresses I reported are justified. The only thing I guilty of is edit warring and I got blocked for that. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 00:06, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
I'm not talking about your block(s) and I didn't say the IP addresses weren't doing anything else shady. I specifically remember administrators telling you upon your making these reports at least twice that you were editing as if you owned the pages that you were making all these reverts on—that it appeared you had to agree with all changes made to them, like you're the gatekeeper of them. You're correct: I also am starting to see it that way because as I just pointed out, when IPs edit a page that must be on your watchlist, you revert often without providing an explanation (which should not be done if it's not blatant vandalism) and even when other registered editors make some change, you find something else to do so you have the "Current" edit. It doesn't need to be done. Of course no editor upon WP:OWN being brought up agrees, but it often looks that way to others, so perhaps take a step back and examine what you're doing more closely on the pages you edit. Ss112 06:46, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
@Ss112: I know Wikipedia is made for everybody and no articles own by anybody. I not trying to act like I own these articles and trying to be the current editor of an article. When an IP or another registered editor add incorrect or unsourced content in an article, I will revert it, but reverting without explaining why could be a problem with some editors. I try to act better in the future and won't be reverting so much if it needed. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 01:23, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

More Life[edit]

I would like to apologize for causing commotion on the More Life page. I recognize that more sources refer to it as a mixtape than an album. I have changed More Life's status back to mixtape. My apologies. Ajlantarctica (talk) 21:30, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

@Ajlantarctica: I accept your apology, but next time explained why you think something is wrong instead of reverting, that's why we have talk pages for. I don't wanna get in a edit war with this issue. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 15:47, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Lil Boat 2[edit]

Hi. I see upon revering the user Percivl on Lil Boat 2, you used the edit summary "rvv". This generally means "revert vandalism", and their edits were not vandalism, so please be a bit careful about using this summary as editors might take issue with their edits being categorised as vandalism. Ss112 00:15, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

@Ss112: I didn't know that "rvv" means "revert vandalism", so that's was a mistake on my part, so I sorry for the confusion. I try to be a bit more careful using that summary if there was actual vandalism. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 19:52, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Alphabetical order[edit]

Hi. Why are you going around and moving "BLSSD" before "Ben Billions" (for example) in the alphabetical order of producers on hip hop album articles? Something being in capital letters doesn't negate alphabetical order. If it were "D.J." that might be a different story, as the punctuation changes things. Did you get this from somewhere/another editor? Because I don't think they're right: Alphabetical order states: "Capital letters (upper case) are generally considered to be identical to their corresponding lower case letters for the purposes of alphabetical ordering". Ss112 12:47, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

@Ss112: The all-caps articles are listed in that way in "Edit watchlist". For example, DS2 is listed before Damn, while GO:OD AM is listed before Genesis. That's where I get that idea from. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 08:16, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Well that appears to be only in the watchlist, as pretty much all other aspects of alphabetical order on Wikipedia mix them, as they should be. See Category:American rappers: capitalised letters are mixed with uncapitalised ones. Placing capitalised titles before uncapitalised ones is not the way alphabetical order works, so you should undo your changes to those articles. Wikipedia's watchlist is obviously coded to place them there; it is not a rule of thumb or something we should all attempt to emulate in article prose. Ss112 13:20, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
@Ss112: I see your point now. I will revert my edits, sorry for the confusion. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 08:29, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Walk It Talk It (Migos song)[edit]

Per your edit summary on Walk It Talk It (Migos song), a song does not need to be sent to radio in 2018 to make it a single. It's one way a song can be a single, but not the only. Radio is becoming less and less relevant as time goes on; radio networks the world over are shedding audiences by the month—relying on this as a method of determining what is and is not a single is not accounting for the wide variety of avenues through which one can release their music commercially. It is still not a requirement on Wikipedia that we need to have a radio add date before we can call a song, in any genre or format, a single. Ss112 05:13, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

@Ss112: You could be right. The song might be a single afterall despite never be on radio, as long it is supported by an reliable source. Right? TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 00:32, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Yes. Also, I just saw this edit of yours on Culture II. Radiodate.it is considered a reliable source for Italian radio release dates, but we should go by earliest release date for a single. Ss112 12:09, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
@Ss112: I didn't know Radiodate.it is a reliable source, so my mistake. Never good at singles. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 07:22, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

Flower Boy[edit]

How likely do you think it is for it to get to GA status? Aitch & Aitch Aitch (talk) 16:43, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

@Aitch & Aitch Aitch: I don't know too much how to get the article in GA status but I can tell that the articles are well sourced and well edited. I see you added some content in the article but some of the content is unsourced. For example, this have to be sourced. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 14:45, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Editors[edit]

Would it be possible to get a few more experienced editors to help edit Tyler's album articles? I'm trying to get at least two of them up to GA but it's just too overwhelming. Aitch & Aitch Aitch (talk) 15:34, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

@Aitch & Aitch Aitch: Here are the editors would probably help you out in the articles, Dan56, Ritchie333 and DannyMusicEditor. But my advice to you is to focus on only one article at a time, like the article Born to Die by Lana Del Rey, since the article is currently a good article nominee by you. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 14:31, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
I don't really know what else to add to that one. I was thinking of starting with Goblin doing a sections about the production and music/lyrics. Aitch & Aitch Aitch (talk) 17:27, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
@Aitch & Aitch Aitch: Take my advice, don't nominate articles to good article status if you not gonna add anything else. Try to focus on articles that you're interested in. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 14:29, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
Okay. So should I just take off the GA nomination on Born to Die and start working on Goblin? Aitch & Aitch Aitch (talk) 20:05, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
@Aitch & Aitch Aitch: I think you should take off the GA nomination on Born to Die since you don't know what to do with the article, if you want to start working on Goblin I say go ahead but you have to work other editors. And another thing, stop linking common words like this, everybody knows what a studio album is, it doesn't needs to be linked per WP:OVERLINK. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 17:43, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
I did already make additions to Born to Die, I was just waiting for someone to review it. Aitch & Aitch Aitch (talk) 09:49, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
