There's an user that has recently started to add notes and opinions of a non professional writer on all the most famous albums articles from the 70's, 80's, 90's. I presume, next in line, he'll add it to the Oasis albums. So the community decided to give this week the final verdict on this subject. Each user is invited to reply shortly. Could you say what you think about it here? Thanks. Woovee (talk) 17:49, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Edit warring on Julian Casablancas[edit]

You pretty clearly broke the three revert rule on Julian Casablancas. The only reason I'm not blocking you is because it happened 6 hours ago. In the future, please don't edit war and discuss the issue instead. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 11:57, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Your signature / timestamp[edit]

Hi there. I noticed when you made a request at WP:RFPP that you seem to be manually adding the timestamp to your posts. For example, on the post i've just linked to, your signature says 23:30 28th January, when the actual time was 05:30 28th Jan. Looking through some of your other talk page edits, I think you're adjusting your signature time to your local time? If that's the case, can you please not do that, and just use the four tildes ~~~~ method. It's important that everyone uses the same timezone on an international site like this one, otherwise it gets very hard to work out from a signature when someone has left a comment and the order that a discussion happened in. Thanks! GedUK  13:17, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Soliciting comment...[edit]

Hi! Would you care to review or comment/vote (support/oppose) at my FA nomination for the article New York Dolls (album)? Information on reviewing an FA nomination's criteria is available at WP:FACR. If not, feel free to ignore this message. Cheers! Dan56 (talk) 04:14, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Querying an edit of yours[edit]

Hi, this edit seems to re-introduce a whole lot of undesirable features, including overlinking. Rationalising wikilinks makes it a little more likely that readers might actually click on them—this is long-established practice. Do we have to have hashes instead of "No." for albums? (We unwilling accept this for comic books, but this is the first time I've heard of it for albums.) There's a deceptive link for audio engineer (better that than "engineer").

Interested to discuss this: I've temporarily watchlisted this page for the purpose. Tony (talk) 10:09, 3 June 2014 (UTC)


hi, thanks for explaining your change to Talking Heads! i was not aware of this convention. sorry for the inconvenience! ~ Boomur [] 19:21, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

No problem! I should have clarified more in my edit summary. TheOnlyOne12 (talk) 21:23, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Removing "studio albums" from discography sections[edit]

Please stop removing the header "Studio albums" from discography sections, as you did in edits such as these [1] [2]. There is a purpose for this header in these sections: Sure, "we all know" and take for granted—as Wikipedia editors who frequently work on these articles—that where there is a hatnote to a separate discography article, the section only lists studio albums, but we can't expect every reader of the encyclopedia to know that intuitively. If a general reader comes across a "Discography" section in an article and sees "for more information, see x discography" but then sees a list of releases below it, they'll likely wonder why some albums are being listed in the section while others are excluded. The small header "Studio albums" communicates to a reader what the content of the list is: Just the artist's studio albums, so they should see the discography article for other releases. This is a form of summary style, and since the "Studio albums" header is used in many articles I ask that you please discuss it with other editors before you go around removing it. --IllaZilla (talk) 15:15, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Actually, please continue. Adding it is not necessary. Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:25, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Walter, please see my reply at User talk:IllaZilla#It's not about partial lists. --IllaZilla (talk) 15:41, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
IllaZilla, unless you can show me there's some kind of guideline explaining the header "studio albums" needs to be in the discography sections, I see no point in you reverting all of my edits just so it can fit your point of view. I noticed you only added these header sections to articles that I've edited on. Why not add this to every discography section? That's not the case here. I think most general readers would know studio albums belong in the main discography section. Can you tell me why there's no "studio albums" header for Bob Dylan's or Michael Jackson's article?

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Infobox musical artist lists[edit]

Template:Infobox musical artist#cite note-lists-1 and I quote: For short horizontal lists of two or three items, comma separators are acceptable, but for longer lists the use of

or is preferred as they offer a benefit to users of screen readers.

So, no, "flatlists are generally used now" is not correct. (talk) 21:29, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
