Song lyrics[edit]

There are two ways to deal with song lyrics in Wikipedia:

  1. If the song was written before 1934, you post the lyrics in Wikisource.
  2. If the song was written after 1934, you don't post the lyrics anywhere within the Wikimedia project. -- Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 22:40, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:QueenBandPicture.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:QueenBandPicture.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 06:46, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

January 2010[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on The Beatles. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. freshacconci talktalk 21:08, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Sock puppet[edit]

As you know, votes in a poll on Talk:The Beatles led to suspicion that you were involved in sock puppetry, and specifically, that you had voted using two accounts to create the illusion of greater support for your position. You subsequently responded that the vote from the IP address was done by your brother, not by you. Please be aware that when multiple editors share an IP address, they are treated as one person for the purposes of WP:SOCK, and sock puppetry is a very serious matter on Wikipedia. I urge you to review WP:FAMILY for some important advice for editors who live or work together and share a computer or an internet connection.

I consulted an administrator about this issue. His advice was to give you an "only warning", i.e., a warning that clearly indicates that a repeat offense will lead to a loss of your editing privileges. In my opinion, that was a fair response, and a moderate one, as by my reading of WP:SOCK, admins can impose an immediate indefinite block for violations of the SOCK policy. (See WP:SOCK#Blocking)

He also suggested that you should strike the vote by the IP. I had already moved the vote into a different section of the talk page, and so I don't think you need to do anything there.

Lastly, when informed that you claimed your brother had cast the vote, he suggested that I direct you to WP:BROTHER, a sarcastic essay that is not part of WP policy but may help you understand why claims that "my brother did it" are not an effective defense. — John Cardinal (talk) 22:36, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Queen[edit]

With regard to your reversions of my edits. Bronchopneumonia is not induced/caused by AIDS, it is a complication of the immune deficiency effect of AIDS. Additionally please check WP:MOS before giving lectures on number formatting on Wikipedia. It is not a British-English thing. On Wikipedia any number below nine is written out, any number above nine is numeralised. Please check your facts (and grammar) before lecturing and reverting, thereby causing an edit war. Thank you. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 13:27, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I cannot afford to spend incredible amounts of time knowing every policy. I regret that you approached me in such a sincere way, for if you had been more constructive I would have been very thankful. In regards to the AIDS thing, do you have some sort of evidence for that claim? TheStig 18:59, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

April 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not replace Wikipedia pages with blank content, as you did to the page Talk:Queen (band)/Archive. Blank pages can confuse readers, and are overall not helpful to the Wikipedia project; furthermore, blanking a page is not the same as deleting it.

If the article you blanked is a duplicate of another article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalized, please revert it to the last legitimate revision. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please use the appropriate deletion process. --   EdTrist     talk    contribs  15:29, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:TimesSquareSunset.JPG[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:TimesSquareSunset.JPG. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:01, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:QueenBandPhoto.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:QueenBandPhoto.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Solid State Survivor (talk) 07:24, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Muse[edit]

Hello, I just discovered that you also edit on Queen wikia. BTW, I just stumbled across the Muse page that you edited over there, and I hope you don't mind that I point out some details.

1. United States of Eurasia does get the most comparisons to Queen out of the band's entire discography, but Knights of Cydonia comes a pretty close second. Also, there's a part in USOE where it sounds like they're about to go straight into the chorus We Are The Champions.

2. You may wanna mention the similarities between Matt Bellamy's and Freddie's style of singing (vocal histrionics, operatic flourishes, etc.)

3. Both bands have had to endure harsh criticism from music critics at the beginning of their careers.

4. Muse have been compared to Queen even all the way back to their first (or second) album. I found an old review from NME referring to Muse as Radiohead being lead by Freddie Mercury.

5. Black Holes and Revelations was the album that made Muse global superstars as was A Night at The Opera for Queen, but Absolution and Sheer Heart Attack were more of the breakout albums for both bands, as they went from being little-known to having popularity. It was also the third album for both bands, and those albums established their presence on both sides of the Atlantic.

6. Both Matt and Freddie have the uncanny ability to hear a song and replicate exactly what they heard on a piano. Also, neither can read music.

7. Even though Matt is frequently compared to Freddie as a frontman, he also has just as much, if not more in common with Brian May. Both sing, play guitar and piano quite proficiently, and both receive a lot of praise for their guitar playing. Both have also had their playing styles compared to Jimi Hendrix.

8. Brian presented Muse with the Kerrang award for Best British Band back in 2001. He has also complimented Muse on The Resistance, saying that "I love it, I think it's great stuff," and also added "I think they're very good boys and extremely talented, and like us they have their tongue in cheek a lot of the time". He also called United States of Eurasia "brilliantly done".

9. Brian's first band was called 1984, after George Orwell's novel, right? Well, The Resistance is inspired and partially themed by the same book.

10. Muse's drummer Dominic Howard has stated he would like Don't Stop Me Now to be played at his funeral. He is also good buddies with Roger Taylor.

11. Both Matt and Freddie hold Jimi Hendrix in high regards, and cite him as one of their biggest influences.

12. OK, this bit of trivia may not have much to do with musical similarities, but like John Deacon, bassist Christopher Wolstenholme is the quietest member of Muse, was the first to get married, and has 5 kids (just one less than John).

Not related to Muse, but since I was on the website, I was browsing throughout it, and there's this one mistake I've got to point out: Queen aren't the second best-selling artist of all time. The List of best-selling music artists says otherwise (with sources).

I hope I don't come off as overbearing, just wanted to help, since I can't edit Queen wikia unregistered. 24.189.87.160 (talk) 05:06, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Also forgot, in the list of artists that Queen has influenced, you may want to add My Chemical Romance, Panic At The Disco and Regina Spektor. 24.189.87.160 (talk) 08:28, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
