The cake on your userpage...[edit]

Sarajevo[edit]

Hey mate, I'm finally back from my months of summer activity. Shall we work on the finishing touches of U2 concert in Sarajevo before taking it to FAC? It looks like it is really close, but I remember a few months ago you said that there were a few things you wanted to work on before nominating. Melicans (talk, contributions) 16:15, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

I've been looking for something to keep me occupied. I'd love to promote a couple of articles actually, and this one would be great start. I'm gonna have a look at the referencing to start things off, then I'll work on reviewing the prose and doing some copyediting. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 16:31, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Let me know when you want to nominate it; I have one up already at FAC (Mothers of the Disappeared), but can have a second if you put it up as a co-nom. I'll put it up for Peer Review in the meantime; hopefully that will give us some indication of it's readiness from a third party! Melicans (talk, contributions) 22:12, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Sounds good. A peer review isn't a bad idea. I haven't yet re-read the prose myself, but I will likely get around to that sometime in the next week. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 22:26, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

U2 360 Troll[edit]

Obvious vandalism/trolling, and now numerous sockpuppet accounts. Any idea how to report/set up an SPI? Not that it will do much good since it is apparently a dynamic IP... Melicans (talk, contributions) 18:53, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

You could open an investigation here, but I'm not sure if it'll be necessary for now, since the 2 sockpuppetted accounts that were created yesterday were blocked. The IP is the only thing that remains unblocked, and I don't think a sockpuppet investigation is the proper forum for that (I could be wrong). Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:01, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
A new one ('Ellie G. was robbed', or something like that) was just created and posted on the talk page. If it weren't for the semi-protection (which expires next month), I have no doubt that tripe would have been edited back in. If it gets past the minimum account age/edit threshold, or when the semi is lifted, I guess SPI is something to look into. Melicans (talk, contributions) 19:29, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Why would The Fray and One Republic support a band like U2? One is rock, the other two are pop rubbish.188.141.24.232 (talk) 08:30, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

So? Kanye West and Jay-Z are rap and crap, yet they both opened. Genre has nothing to do with who is chosen as an opener. If the bands that were chosen were too similar to U2, were would the variety be? And of course, saying that they are "rubbish" (or to use my own words, "crap", is entirely subjective and no basis for inclusion or removal. We deal with facts, not editor opinions. Melicans (talk, contributions) 18:04, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
So, everything I said about waiting on that sockpuppet investigation? Ignore that - I just opened this up. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:16, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Hopefully this whole sordid affair will be wrapped up along with the closed SPI. =) Melicans (talk, contributions) 23:56, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

One Republic[edit]

How are they in any way, shape or form rock? They are a boy band. 188.141.24.232 (talk) 08:20, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Why are you asking me idiotic questions? I didn't book the bands. The fact is they played those concerts, whether you like them or not. If you keep this crap up, you will be permanently banned, so I suggest you stop. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 11:07, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Since when were One Republic rock?[edit]

Calling them a rock band as an insult to Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Nazareth and other real rock bands. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ellie G Was Robbed (talkcontribs) 17:56, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

What is 'rock'? From that one overarching definition you have hard rock, soft rock, pop rock, synth rock, rock opera, alternative rock, rock 'n' roll, and a myriad of combinations within. Who are you to judge what is and isn't rock? Melicans (talk, contributions) 18:03, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Move along - nothing to see here. The sockpuppet investigation will have this guy banned soon enough. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:15, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Achtung remaster[edit]

Dunno if there is anything in here you can use, but this PDF from Universal Italy finally lays out everything in the boxset (including the DVD and LP contents), and if my Italian is correct it also confirms (for the first time from an official source) that it is remastered. Melicans (talk, contributions) 04:00, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Ohhh! Great find. I'll probably hold off on adding anything to the article until it's from a more "official" source (e.g. U2.com), but this is great, thanks. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 13:33, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Email[edit]

Were the files clear enough to see? I don't have a scanner so photographs were the best I could do. Melicans (talk, contributions) 18:14, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Yep, I can make the images out. I'm trying to decipher the highlife riff, but my limited knowledge may prevent me from being able to interpret that part. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:16, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Heh, I'm just glad you can read it. I could barely tell what the tempo was, I'm that illiterate with sheet music! Melicans (talk, contributions) 18:26, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

October 2011[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Ryan Braun. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. You appear to be edit warring. Please note that you were asked to take your comments to the talk page instead. Also note -- this is a GA article, that has gone through GA review and the concomitant review by multiple editors. Most of your changes appear to be of the highly subjective IDONTLIKEIT variety, and fail to respect the consensus of other editors who have edited the article, and reviewed it for purposes of GA. I see that you have been blocked multiple times for edit warring, but not in the recent past; I hope you would take to heart the fact that that is not an acceptable way of resolving issues where you have a different point of view than others in the community. Please stop edit warring, and bring your comments to the talk page. Thank you. Epeefleche (talk) 19:48, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

30 seconds to Mars[edit]

If you have trouble with anonymous IPs on 30 Seconds to Mars articles, check to see if they are from Italy. If they are, drop me a note, and I'll block: it's ItHysteria, a long-term banned editor.—Kww(talk) 15:38, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

According to IP-lookup.net, the most recent IP 79.31.37.81 originates from the host "host81-37-dynamic.31-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it", which is indeed Italy. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 15:43, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

"One Tree Hill"[edit]

Thanks for adding all the Composition information. I was wondering though, do you know what key it is played in? Melicans (talk, contributions) 05:35, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

I couldn't determine the key directly from the sheet music, but I thought it was C since that is how the song begins. According to Music Notes, it is C major [1] . Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 05:43, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
Cheers. Looks like the MusicNotes sheet is from a different source as it has 123 bpm instead of 120. I'm a bit hesitant to mix and match so I probably won't put it in. Thanks again for adding it all! Melicans (talk, contributions) 05:51, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Achtung Baby TFAR[edit]

Achtung Baby can now be nominated at WP:TFAR. It's within the necessary date range and there are only 4 date requests at the moment. I started to do it myself but couldn't figure out the best 1200-character blurb, so I figured it would be best for you to do it yourself. I think File:Bono as The Fly Cleveland 1992.jpg should be used as the image since it's the only free image of a band member from that era and the U2 infobox image has already been on the Main Page on at least two occasions (if not more). –Dream out loud (talk) 05:56, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out, I knew the eligibility date was coming up soon. I agree about the picture, it would complement the TFA blurb perfectly. I'll write something up shortly. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 12:46, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
Looks like we'll have to wait, as there are 5 requests already up. In the meantime, you can view the blurb I put together here. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 13:25, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
If there are five requests already up you can bump the one with the lowest points value. If one is due to vanish in the next few days it may be easier just to wait, but if they are all for dates a while in advance bumping would work. Melicans (talk, contributions) 22:21, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Re: Princess of China[edit]

You are still going against WP:CITEKILL. In the space of three words, there are 6 footnotes. It looks awful. CalvinNaNaNaC'mon! 17:13, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

OK, then pick one or two of the most prominent references and use those. Point is, plenty of reliable sources have called the song "electropop", so there is no reason why it shouldn't be one of the genres listed. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 17:18, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
I will fix it using a coded ref. And there is no reason why Alternative hip hop can't be included. Coldplay is an Alternative rock band, and Rihanna is an R&B/Soul and Reggae artist. Alternative hip hop is a combination of those genres, hence it should be included. And you formatted some references incorrectly. You must include the publisher paramter. I would have thought you would have known considering you actually promoted some articles to GA status. CalvinNaNaNaC'mon! 17:22, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
I know how to format references - I've done them quite frequently. Are you really trying to hold it against me that I forgot the publisher field? Forgetting that doesn't make the references incorrect - maybe incomplete. Regardless, instead of patronizing me for neglecting something, perhaps you should be thankful someone added 90% of the reference information, or even any references at all. As far as alternative hip hop, I think your interpretation of the genre differs from what others consider alt hip-hop, hence why there does not seem to be many reliable sources that call the song as such. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 17:29, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
Include the publisher parameter then! 90%? You added about 3 or 4 sources in the entire article. Anyone can edit Wikipedia, and I don't WP:OWN the article, it's up to you if you want to add sources in. My interpretation of Alt hip hop is what the Alternative hip hop article says, as well as the fact that the combination of Coldplay and Rihanna results in an Alternative hop hop influenced song. And at first, you was saying it was an electropop song, even though two of the three sources didn't actually say electropop. Anyway, we have clearly got off on the wrong foot, so let's forget about it. CalvinNaNaNaC'mon! 17:43, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Foster The People Infobox Image[edit]

Regarding the photo of Foster the People wearing suits at the MMVA's.

We are the official representatives of Foster the People and would like your help in selecting a photo that is both true to the wikipedia community as well as the band's image and preference.

Can we have your support in selecting one of the band's approved press photos for their wikipedia image?

Thanks for your time.

--Jsmith2122 (talk) 18:16, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Promotional pictures of the band are certainly eligible for use on Wikipedia if released with the proper copyright/permissions for reuse, but as far as I know, a band-approved image would not necessarily take precedence over another image just because the band has approved its use. Visibility and ease of identification of the subject, along with the Wikipedia project's ability to redistribute the image freely, are the primary concerns for image selection in articles. As it stands, the image of the band at the MMVA's is the clearest image available depicting all 3 band members. The promotional pic you added is darker and harder to see the band in. Although it may be more in line with the band's image or how they wish to portray themselves, it's not a better image for identification. If the group has another image available that would be more appropriate for identification/clarity/etc, then it would certainly be a candidate for use in the article. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:35, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for this information, it is very helpful. We will add an image that is clear and that shows the band better. If the new image is up to your and wikipedia's standards, we would appreciate your help keeping the image as the official infobox photo and not using the Much Music Awards picture. Please also let me know if you have any objections to the new image when it is posted and the reasons why. Thanks again!

--Jsmith2122 (talk) 19:10, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

If an image that you upload is indeed your own work, that's fine - you could use the same copyright/permissions from the first image and upload it to Wikicommons. If not, it would fall under the guidelines WP:Non-free content. Just wanted to let you know before you upload anything. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:24, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Thank you again! We own all of the images I have posted so far. They are official images that the band own. We have given credit to the photographers though. I just updated the image. Please let me know if this is an acceptable image. --Jsmith2122 (talk) 19:34, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Looks like someone has tagged your image - you'll need to demonstrate proof that you either own the image yourself or have received permission from the author to use it on Wikipedia. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 13:13, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Josh the Tree[edit]

I should be able to finish going through the refs this weekend, or failing that early next week; depends on how work on my three essays go. Preliminary thoughts from what I've read so far while going through the refs is that it will need a pretty thorough copyedit before FAC. The prose is very passionate and detailed, but I'm not so sure it is at the level FAC demands. Prose is generally my weakest suit though (most of the Opposes I've had at FAC have been based on that alone), so I may not be the greatest judge of that quality. Journal articles that don't have pages, etc, probably won't be too big an issue. Nikkimaria generally does most of the sourcing at FAC, and she didn't have any problem with a lot of those articles when I nominated "Mothers of the Disappeared" most recently when I explained how we had access to them.

Speaking of "Mothers", my plan was to nominate it at TFAR to coincide with the 25th anniversary of The Joshua Tree. If the album article isn't ready by that date, I think it would be a good fallback as a song from the album (it should still have the date relevence). Or possibly "One Tree Hill", which I think will be my next FAC nomination after I polish away some of the quote farming (as the PR put it), if that is ready. Either way there should hopefully be a couple of good choices for 9 March 2012! Hopefully we will soon be able to get Sarajevo up as well in the next month or so.

Main page appearance: Achtung Baby[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Achtung Baby know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on November 19, 2011. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/November 19, 2011. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or his delegate Dabomb87 (talk · contribs), or start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Bono, lead singer of U2

Achtung Baby is the seventh studio album by rock band U2. Released on 19 November 1991, it was produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno. Stung by the criticism of their 1988 release Rattle and Hum, U2 shifted their musical direction to incorporate influences from alternative rock, industrial music, and electronic dance music into their sound. Thematically, the album is darker, more introspective, and more flippant than their previous work. Recording began at Berlin's Hansa Studios in October 1990, but the sessions were fraught with conflict, as the band argued over the direction and quality of their music. After nearly breaking up, they made a breakthrough with the improvisation of the song "One". With improved morale, they completed the album in Dublin in 1991. Achtung Baby received favourable reviews and went to number one in several countries. It spawned five hit singles, including "One", "Mysterious Ways", and "The Fly". The album has sold 18 million copies, and in 1993, it won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The record and the multimedia-intensive Zoo TV Tour were central to U2's 1990s reinvention. Achtung Baby has regularly appeared on critics' lists of the greatest albums of all time. (more...)

Mylo Xyloto cover[edit]

I just wanted to tell you that the album cover for Mylo Xyloto is the one with the grey background. I've yet to see one physical or digital album with the announced cover. I won't change it to the grey background until I've heard otherwise or have seen actual pics of someone owning Mylo Xyloto with the announced cover. Please take this message into consideration and get back to me when you have a word on the subject. Thanks!

Easy4me (talk) 17:22, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Every review of the album or online listing that I've seen (such as that on Metacritic of even Coldplay's own website) has used the full graffiti image. Each format seems to have a different variation of the artwork (e.g. different cut-out/filter), but I think the canonical cover is the full graffiti one. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:23, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Reference material at Google Books[edit]

Where was it decided not to include convenience links to reference material at Google Books?

-- J. Wong (talk) 18:52, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

There was no explicit decision or consensus, but the general editing pattern for the article has been to not use Google Books as a courtesy link (other references, like Billboard magazines from the 1990s, don't currently have them). I mostly don't like using them because the URL's are too long and having a lot of them can add a lot of length to an article. That said, it's not that big an issue for me, I was just trying to adhere to some kind of consistency. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:20, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
I think convenience for the reader overrides concerns about size (although the article is pretty big). Consistency would apply only to other Spin articles that might be there. -- J. Wong (talk) 03:03, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Derek Jeter help?[edit]

I've been trying to emulate the job you did on Mariano Rivera to get DJ's article up to FA, but based on an oppose vote I just received, I might not have done enough. Would you mind helping me out? Your fresh perspective on that article would be invaluable to me. – Muboshgu (talk) 22:09, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

I have to admit, I'm not as familiar with the ins and outs of Jeter's career like I am Mariano's. I can pretty much tell you what he did each year of his career - Jeter, not so much, so it'll require a lot more research from my end to make sure everything is covered. As part as prose and organization of the article go, I can certainly help with that. I don't know what pace I'll be able to assist at, so I most likely won't be able to "save" the current nomination. Is there a certain area you would like me to start with? Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:50, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
I can worry about the content, the ins and outs. I don't think there are any criticisms of the level of detail or sourcing. The biggest problem I'm running into is prose. If you could give it a quick look and let me know what you think, then I'd have a better idea of what to do, and whether or not I can get it to pass this time through. – Muboshgu (talk) 21:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
It might help if I actually linked you to the review page - Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Derek Jeter/archive3. Thought I had initially. Whoops. – Muboshgu (talk) 21:29, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

El Camino[edit]

hey i saw you are trying hard to improve the article, but there's just a problem, you only want to add the positive things about the album and it's not the way that Wikipedians do. we indicate all the things about albums. if you think something should remove from an article first bring it up in its talk page and let's talk about the whole thing, then we all decide it together to what should we do about that situation. we all want to improve articles, so let's not fight over something, let's discuss our ideas first then put them out there.

thank you Reza (Let'sTalk) 21:10, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm not opposed to adding negative things, I added the criticisms that The Observer noted throughout its review. But as you can see from the Metacritic rating, reception has been overwhelmingly positive. That is reflected in the weight of positive/negative statements in the prose. If you average the scores of the reviews in the article together, you get roughly the same score that Metacritic shows, so I don't think there is any misrepresenting of positivity/negativity. There is pretty much the same proportion of positive/negative reviews in the article as there are listed on Metacritic (21 positive/2 mixed at MC, 9 positive/1 mixed in article). Furthermore, it's not necessary to split out a paragraph that says "However, not all reviews were positive". That sentence kinda screams "well, duh" (not every review will actually be positive). Hope you see what I'm getting at. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 21:16, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
ok whatever, but it's kinda a "well, duh" and people should know about it. it seems like we the writers are covering for the band and it's so unprofessional for us. and about the allmusic review. in the most articles, at first comes allmusic because it's the most important source of reviews and people looking for it at first and then going to the rest, no matter when the review is published. that was why i put it behind Spin.
and why did you remove the personnel section? please at first bring your ideas in talk page cause with no offence, your edits are getting annoying and it seems like you're bossing around the article. let's talk about what you're doing first then remove contents.
thank you. Reza (Let'sTalk) 22:58, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
The personnel section was an accidental removal, probably due to an edit conflict on my part. As for the Allmusic review - I don't know what you're talking about when you say "it's the most important source of reviews". That's an opinion, unless there is some Wikipedia policy that says that particular source is preferential to everything else available. In many cases, Allmusic is being downgraded as a reliable source (ratings, for example, for old reviews are arbitrarily decided and don't always match the tone of the reviews). I don't see why we should lead off with it - the most objective thing to do, in my opinion, is just start with the first review published, which was Spin.

"One Tree Hill" FAC problem[edit]

Hi; hope you're not too busy. I've run into a wee bit of a problem at the "One Tree Hill" FAC. A spotcheck is underway, and there have been some unusual problems. It seems that FN 4a-d, 6a-c, and 9 (all McCormick) are turning up different page numbers in the spotcheck than are present in my book. Can you check your copy to verify that the page numbers are correct? There is also a concern about the use of McCormick in the first two paragraphs of "Inspiration" as it is considered a primary source. Per my reading of WP:PRIMARY I think the usage in paragraph 2 is okay (though readings by other people may differ) as it is used only for a few quotes. Paragraph 1 in that section seems to be a bigger issue, as there is a definite over-reliance on primary sources.

I hate to ask this, but I only came home yesterday and didn't bring my books (they add far too much weight to my luggage for international travel), and I won't have access to them again until 3 January at the earliest. Would you be able to check the sources you have to see if there is anything that can replace McCormick in paragraph 1? There may be a bit too much detail in there to begin with, so if you think it needs a drastic pruning please don't hesitate. If you can't find anything or are unable to help out (understandable given the time of year), please let me know and I'll try to find another workaround to fix this problem. Cheers, Melicans (talk, contributions) 04:47, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Looks like the last-minute crisis has been averted (phew!) I was able to make some changes courtesy of Google Books and the article was promoted a few hours ago. I'd love to get it on the mainpage on 3 July; it would be nice to see Greg remembered on that day. Do you think we'll be ready to go on Sarajevo in the New Year? Melicans (talk, contributions) 00:48, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Adele 21[edit]

Hi there. I was just wondering why you reverted the "confessional singer-songwriter" expression from the 21 article. You said it was un-encyclopedic. Why is this? A confessional singer-songwriter is a very standard (and encyclopedic) musical expression; Adele, who performs in same vein as the traditional singer-songwriter, released what is a known as a deeply confessional album about her tumultuous break-up. This article mentions Adele when discussing the "dormant tradition" of the confessional singer-songwriter. I did not think it needed much defending when I was writing the article. My main issue is incorporating the sources, but it's something that I'm currently working on. Orane (talk) 22:05, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

I don't see why something about the "near dormant singer-songwriter tradition" is only mentioned in the lead, not the article body. And to me, that sounds like the opinion of a journalist, something you need to attribute to the person and not state as fact. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:11, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
What about the expression is contentious for you? The fact that the tradition is "near dormant", or that fact that the album is a confessional? If it's the former, then that can be easily sourced. If it's the latter, well it's explained throughout the article that the album is a confessional album. It's not that important a point that it has to be spelled out explicitly in the article. Orane (talk) 21:15, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I don't have a problem with the "confessional" word, but rather the statement "near-dormant singer-songwriter tradition". First, something should only appear in the lead if it's mentioned somewhere in the rest of the article, so yes, please spell it out. Otherwise, it's not essential to the article. Again, the statement "near-dormant singer-songwriter tradition" is someone's opinion (e.g. I don't think it's a dormant tradition), but it is included in the article as if it's fact that singer-songwriters don't write with a confessional tone anymore. Either attribute the original quote to someone or remove the statement. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 14:40, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Just wanted to thank you for your edits to the article. Greatly appreciated, and I see what you mean about the "near-dormant" point. I just had an attachment to the sentence. Orane (talk) 19:19, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
Your honest opinion: do you think it is possible to have the article featured anytime soon? In what area(s) is it lacking? Orane (talk) 20:19, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm glad to help. I definitely think it's worthy of being a Good Article. You could nominate it now and it would probably pass with ease (and in my opinion, you should always get it to Good Article status first). As far as getting it to be a Featured Article, I still think there needs to be some copyedits, and you'd probably want to make sure descriptions of song styles and things of that nature are properly attributed to the authors. But it's definitely on the fast track to making it there. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 20:34, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
Copy that. Will look into the copy edit. That's been my main problem from the start. I'm good at copy-editing other people's work, but can't seem to get my own just right. To be honest, though, I've never been a fan of the good article process due its informality, among other reasons. I'll do my best to incorporate your suggestions. And feel free at any time to dive in and edit away :) Orane (talk) 23:07, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Snow Patrol Lineup[edit]

Hi there, thanks for you contributions RE Snow Patrol. I have been to 2 shows and 1 radio acoustic session in the last 3 months where Johnny McDaid was introduced as a "band member". I heard it with my own ears and he was definitely there. There are numerous examples of this on the internet - <ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSAichZXXm4|title=Snow Patrol play Studio Brussel|date=19 December 2011|publisher=youtube|accessdate=20 December 2011}}</ref> where Gary Lightbody openly refers to McDaid as a band member. I was at a TV show here in New York recently where Johnny and Gary performed a song they had written together. They were introduced as "Snow Patrol".

Quote box styles?[edit]

Hi. I noticed you have a concern about quote box layout in W. E. B. Du Bois ... I posted a question at Talk:W._E._B._Du_Bois#quote_box. The article was just promoted to FA status last month, and is scheduled to appear on the WP main page next week, on 23 Feb. My preferences it to have the article in top-notch form for that day. During the GA promotion, peer review, and FA promotion, none of the editors had an issue with the quote box layout. I presume your concern is mostly a matter of taste? Or is there some WP guideline that I'm not aware of that mandates a certain tint for quote boxes? The MOS suggests that, when it is simply a matter of taste, the choice should default to the original style used by the initial authors of the article. Thanks for your help. --Noleander (talk) 17:42, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

At Wikipedia:MOSQUOTE#Quotations, under the block quotations section, it says, "Block quotations using a colored background are also discouraged". For me, colored or stylized quotation boxes are too distracting - they draw attention away from the prose and instead to the quotation. I can appreciate you wanting to look after the article for its upcoming TFA, which is actually why I glanced over the article recently to look for anything in need. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:57, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough. Do you have any objection to (1) enlarging the font size a bit to 90% (I cannot read the default size well, and I presume other wont either since my eyesight is average); or (2) using the default tint employed by the {{quotation}} template (a very light grey)? --Noleander (talk) 19:02, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
I presume that the 90% and light grey are okay? I'll go ahead and make those changes. Cheers. --Noleander (talk) 21:17, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

2012 Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums for Boy[edit]

I believe the reference should go back to the 2003 citation. Although I know the online list has been updated to the 2012 listing, the placement of Boy was unchanged as was the citation text, and the web page makes no reference to either the 2003 or 2012 versions of the list. So the original citation was in 2003, which was published in that year. Furthermore, your edit implies that it was added to the list in 2012 and a reader would not know that it was actually placed there in 2003 and would be unaware of any significance you mean to impart to its having remained on the list in the same position for 9 years.

If you think it should reference the 2012 placement, you still need to reference the original placement, which was the original cite made by the article. And the cite should be to the original magazine article in any case, which is more significant.

Re: Block quotes vs quote boxes[edit]

Hi Y2kcrazyjoker4. I reverted your good-faith edit to Manhunter (film) as it seemed to be a simple misunderstanding. Block quotes, which should have a transparent background, are those which stay in line with the article's prose, and are generated by using <blockquote>TEXT</blockquote>. The result is something like this:

I only mention it because sometimes there's a man... I won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? But sometimes, there's a man. And I'm talkin' about the Dude here. Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Dude, in Los Angeles. And even if he's a lazy man—and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide. But sometimes there's a man, sometimes, there's a man. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced him enough.

Keeping the background clear means that it doesn't disrupt flow in the article as block quotes are intended to be used as part of said prose. However, a quote box is more of an ornamental thing, boxed off to one side much in the manner of an image; a degree of colour there is useful to enforce their role in breaking up large portions of text, again in the same way as an image would. Given that Manhunter is light on images I felt that retaining the little flash of colour as important to keep the text from seeming too dense. I've clearly rambled on too much here, but I figured it was more explaining than I could manage in an edit summary. GRAPPLE X 19:17, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

I guess you felt too much was devoted to other Sox players? Anyways, I've changed the wording and also added a ref as one was not there before. Zepppep (talk) 16:11, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

The way you had it written, the other Sox players making the All-Star team was irrelevant to Adam Dunn's article. That info should be in the 2012 Chicago White Sox season article. The way you summarized he was one of 4 players is much better. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 16:13, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Keep in mind I wasn't the original one to mention the 3 other players. I just felt it was misleading to lump all 4 of them into being chosen by their peers; heck, Peavy didn't even win the Final Vote. I was even hesitant editing it to the point I had, because I too was thinking the list was getting a little long and off subject. If readers want to find out who the other 3 are, that's what links are for -- or so I feel. Zepppep (talk) 16:58, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

WikiProject Baseball Infobox vote[edit]

For the most part I've stayed out of the infobox discussion so far, but I am interested in participating in the vote. However, I'm a little unclear on one thing: To pick any of the categories as an example, the All-Star selection seems to indicate that a player must have been selected 14 times to have it listed in the infobox. Is that correct or is it actually that the 14 is the limit? That may be a stupid question, but I just wanted to make sure. AutomaticStrikeout 23:31, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Achtung Baby[edit]

Regarding this change, it's a fact well established in the article. Although I couldn't find any reference in the article to RS ranking it the 4th best album of the 90s. Perhaps a revert plus the addition of the RS rank is in order? --Merbabu (talk) 23:35, 26 August 2012 (UTC) PS - if not a revert, then a reword? --Merbabu (talk) 23:36, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

I don't have a preference one way or the other. I'm not sure if we need the most acclaimed record of the 90s part, but certainly it being ranked among rock's great albums should be in the lead to reflect the legacy section. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 02:31, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for following me even onto non-U2 pages to revert my bid to make these pages read a little less like a fansite. I've commented on the relevant album talk pages. Especially when you look at quite how many WP album pages make boasts like this, you realise quite how meaningless these phrases are. On Achtung Baby, it looks as if we could both live with losing the first half of the sentence but keeping the second. N-HH talk/edits 09:17, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Fifth-highest[edit]

I see your concern. However, in the case you are worried about, it would be strange to refer to someone as "fifth highest" as opposed to the "fifth person to ever lead" or "fifth person to hold the record".—Bagumba (talk) 17:40, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, it would definitely be strange to read it that way, but I could definitely see someone doing that, particularly when talking about statistics and ever-changing leaders in those categories. The rules for hyphen use seem to be flexible enough that they would permit it, but flexible enough to allow it to be ommitted, too. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 17:45, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Nexus 7[edit]

G'day Y2kcrazyjoker4, I saw you have been improving the article Nexus 7 ever since it was moved from my sandbox. Since you are a major contributor to the article, I want to know if you see any flaws within the article (significant exclusions of info, etc) that need to be addressed. I also request that you be my FAC co-nom in the near future, because you have made significant alterations to the article. Cheers, and have a great day. --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 07:33, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

There are a few things I didn't see in the article - first, the description of the rubberized pockmarked back that many critics loved - and second, the reports of some issues with the LCD display requiring returns. With that said, I think the article is pretty comprehensive at this point and I would love to help you as a co-nominator, but it might be worth waiting until the article is a bit more stable. Several competing products will be released in the coming weeks, and we don't yet have sales figures for the Nexus 7, so much of the article may still change. Hope that helps. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:12, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Why don't you work on the rubberized back, while I work on the display issues. That'd speed things up, the article would settle more quickly, and hopefully we'll nominate the article for FA sooner. Thanks for the comment; cheers. --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 07:09, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
I'm done with the LCD display issues -- I'll just wait for you now, unless you want me to work on it myself. --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 05:31, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll get the info about the pockmarked back added at some point this week. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 12:23, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── As the PR is almost over, the FAC is getting closer. Do you have any last-minute concerns? If the answer is no, please get ready :) --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 00:20, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
I honestly don't think that enough time has passed to nominate it for FAC. The device has been on the market for 8 weeks, and the article is probably not stable enough at present to make it through the nomination process. Let's see how the device plays out with consumers or wait until some actual sales figures are released. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 00:44, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
If you say so, let's wait a few weeks. But it doesn't look like sales figures will be released as Google did not release such figures about the Galaxy Nexus. Thoughts? --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 01:08, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── As we let the article settle down for several weeks, are you interested in working with me on a new article? --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 00:54, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
It depends on the article - my availability and potential unfamilarity with the subject might make that difficult. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 12:25, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Just wanted to tell you if you didn't know already your Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon pictures are nominated for deletion. I don't know if you got the message or not. But I think those photos are great, and it would be a shame if they got deleted. You can discuss the matter by going to the two picture files and clicking on the nomination for deletion box discussion. PositivelyJordan (talk) 22:55, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

I saw that - I don't know Dutch, so I can't truly decipher the copyright status of the archive's images aside from reading the Google Translation. Hopefully, those more informed than me will be able to save the pics. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 12:26, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

AFD you may be interested in[edit]

There's an AFD regarding Lance Easley going on right now that relates to the Seattle-Green Bay game here. Go Phightins! (talk) 01:44, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

The penalty would have ended the game[edit]

Straight from the NFL statement: "While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground. This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game."

Well, of course it would have ended the game. It was the last play of the game, and was not a defensive pass interference penalty (which would have resulted in an untimed down). Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 04:17, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

What are you trying to do?[edit]

Hi, i'm the user who has been reverting you edits in the Muse band article, you want to remove the genre progressive metal, and actually metal, because you say that there aren't enough sources, however the problem i have with you is not that i can't found sources, the problem i have with you is that when i go to muse's talkpage: [3] there is a discussion about adding or not adding the genre progressive metal that shows that it, in fact has 10 sources backing it up (plus two that i've found by myself), and you comented in that discussion, you are aware that there are numerous sources to add prog metal, but now, you are removing it saying that it isn't notable ignoring the discussion in the talkpage in wich you participed, I don't know, but to me this looks as if you are acting in harassive way.

the size readjust was done to fit in section better...for a reason[edit]

hello. How are you. Not sure what your issue is with that size matter. What you did though was totally unwarranted, and you gave no explanation for it.

The size readjust was not done willy nilly, but to make it fit better in that section. You reverted WITH NO EXPLANATION, against WP policy.

The size re-adjustment was done for a reason. It fits now in the section, without spilling over into the next one. So what's the problem, sir? Please leave the edit alone.

I meant well. And the re-sizing was arguably needed. It's encouraged by Wikipedia to try to fit images in subsections, so that they don't spill over into other sections, making it look out of place and disorderly.

So, to be frank, you disrespected by good-faith adjustment for NO reason at all, except "you don't like"...again, against WP policy. You didn't explain anything really. Regards. Gabby Merger (talk) 00:16, 3 November 2012 (UTC)


edit-warring over image size?[edit]

I took the time to communicate to you, and instead addressing anything now, you just rudely revert, with no explanation yet again. Please stop edit-warring.

Sir, the point is the edit was good faith and you give NO explanation for reverting...you're in violation.

I told you why I readjusted the image. Why are you so against fitting the image better in the section, so that it does not look sloppy going over into the other section? The point is that you had NO WP VALID RIGHT to revert it simply because "you don't like"...

The WP policy is that images CAN be readjusted according to text and according to preferences.

"should not be set to a larger fixed size than the 220px default (users can adjust this in their preferences)"

and

"enough to reveal relevant details without overwhelming the surrounding article text."

There are other things too.

But regardless, what is wrong with trying to fit image more into the section, so that the image does not spill over into other sections?

Why do you have such a problem with that? You want that mini-tablet image to be shown larger I guess. It would be fine IF THAT PARTICULAR SECTION WAS BIGGER. But it's not. But that's all I was trying to do. Why are you so against it? Gabby Merger (talk) 01:46, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

I don't see any reason to resize the image. It's not overbearing in size - the upright parameter specifically fits it to a width appropriate for the image's dimensions. The image's size should not be dependent on the amount of prose in the section - if you think the section is too small, then more prose should be added to account for this. The only reason I can think of to resize an image that small is if it is a logo that does not need to take up so much space. On the contrary, this image gives good perspective on the relative size of the tablet compared to a user's hand, and shrinking it does not improve the reader's ability to understand the topic. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 04:11, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
As I said, I actually agree in a way that the other size before that was better...and I never would have reduced the size if the section that the pic is in was a bit longer. The problem (and this is not just my own whim or feeling, but something that's been discussed and suggested in WP for years now) that spill-over into other sections is not the best, though not necessarily wrong per se, but it's preferred (for obvious and logical reasons) that the image where the section belongs to DOES NOT get into other sections, because of size. So yes, in a way, this "Mini tablet" section could be longer. And maybe it will be elaborated upon.
But I'm not sure why the shrunken size took so much away from the proportion-to-hand thing that you're talking about. You can still see the hand in the smaller size of the image. But anyway, to re-iterate, I only did the size reduction because of the section size issue, not for willy nilly reasons out of nowhere. I would have left it alone if the section was bigger. And if there was no annoying spill-over. That's all I'm saying. Regards. Gabby Merger (talk) 04:47, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Motörhead[edit]

I note you have reinstated your edit to Motörhead's genres, with the edit summary "this is not the way genres are supposed to be written for one, and secondly, "rock and roll" is not backed up by the reference

I agree that the capitalization was incorrect; as Template:Infobox_musical_artist#genre states:- most genres are not proper nouns and should not be capitalized. However, the first word in a list of multiple genres should be capitalized.

However, I am confused by your statement "secondly, "rock and roll" is not backed up by the reference" as there is no reference attached to the genres, whereas there are 96 to the article.

Motörhead's genres are frequently changed, which is why there is the warning in hidden text, not to change them without discussion. There has been much discussion on the talk page, including several references to "rock and roll". To quote just one reference [4] "The music is exactly what you'd expect. We're pretty much set in our ways," Kilmister said. "It's straight-ahead rock ‘n' roll. It is not heavy metal."

Arjayay (talk) 14:14, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

There is a hidden comment directly before the genres in the infobox that is a link to the band's Allmusic entry, with no mention of "rock and roll" as a genre. I also would like to point out that the "rock n' roll" colloquialism that is used to refer to the rock star lifestyle/attitude is not synonymous with the rock and roll genre that originated in the 50's with music like Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 14:25, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, I missed the hidden comment, but Allmusic are not the arbiters of these things, and, as shown in the reference above, Lemmy was not referring to the life-style, but the music. If you have ever seen Motörhead, you probably heard Lemmy's standard introduction "We are Motörhead and we play rock and roll" Arjayay (talk) 14:46, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Daddy's Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car (U2 song)[edit]

Hello Y2kcrazyjoker4, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Daddy's Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car (U2 song), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A10 wouldn't apply to a good faith expansion compared to a redirect. Especially not if there are possibilities to merge. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. And why would you remove the links if you see potential for an article?[10] Tikiwont (talk) 20:55, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

In all honesty, I don't think there are expansion opportunities. The songs are non-notable and currently just duplicated info from the album article (except for live performance info). I don't see why a separate topic is needed for the songs when there are articles that already exist for them and already have an editing history (as it stands they are redirects but at one time did have content). Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 21:02, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
That's a fair argument but somewhat different from what A10 is about not least because it has a redirect clause. If the songs are still not deemed notable enough the answer might then be to redirect the new creations as well. To facilitate things I'll do the merge.

Sure, I'd be glad to help copyedit the article and point out any areas that need expansion. Work on the Asylum article may even benefit the City article if we come across items while working on the former that we want to incorporate into the latter. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:11, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
At the moment I've expanded it as much as I can and am trying to make sure everything is sourced so I don't end up in the situation I did with Arkham City, where pretty much every item of info added before I started working on it ended up being unsourced, I spent most of the FAC process just fixing that. Some of the gameplay still needs sourcing but not much, and I can't find any info on the comic really, and some of the awards. Other than that, the big thing will be copy editing and then formatting all the refs and archiving them properly. But definitely if any information you can think of that can be added or you know of, let me know/add it. It's a bit harder with this game because searching for "Batman: Arkham Asylum" will bring up either the graphic novel by Morrison or Arkham City articles where they mention Arkham Asylum. Darkwarriorblake (talk) 19:19, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hi, I have a question about the info you added to Arkham City a few months ago about it being sixth rated of all time. I was looking at the info to see if it was at all applicable to Asylum, but looking at the source, a version of Arkham City is third highest rated if I'm reading it correctly at 96, with only , am I misremembering your reasoning or is this not the correct source? Darkwarriorblake (talk) 13:44, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Excluding the duplicate GTA4 entry (for a different console) from the Metacritic list, there are 5 unique games with ratings higher than 96. Thus any game with a score of 96 would be tied as the sixth-highest-rated game. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 00:25, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

[edit]

Hey,

Was just curious, why do you keep removing the Grouplove logo from the article's infobox. I apologize for restoring it multiple times without messaging you, I am just wondering if there is any other place in the article where the logo could work better. I feel that adding the logo to the article would help better represent the band Grouplove. Would love to hear your concerns.

Thanks, --Carmenshields (talk) 00:36, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Per Template:Musical artist, an image of the artist is to be used in the image field. I don't know if the logo can be added elsewhere in the article, but generally unless it is a very famous, widely used logo, musical artist logos tend to be removed from articles because they are non-free content. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 03:01, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the fast response! Will keep in mind, thought though since that is the official logo of the band and used on all of their album art that would be acceptable under fair use. Thanks. --Carmenshields (talk) 01:10, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Links[edit]

Hi Y2kcrazyjoker4. Re: our discussion here, I was hoping to get some clarification on my question. I read WP:OVERLINK but am still wondering why the links were not inserted earlier in the article instead of later? Any light you could shed would be appreciated. Best Robvanvee 10:00, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

I can't tell you for certain, it may have just been an oversight on the part of the editors. Or perhaps the links were there and were at one time removed. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 15:43, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Zooropa[edit]

Hi, I'd like to apologise for my handling of a relatively minor disagreement with you over this article a few days ago. I'm not an habitual multiple reverter and am extremely embarrassed at having resorted to such behaviour. I disagreed with your interpretation and having had a bad day wasn't in the mood to enter into a sensible debate. Childish, and I apologise again for that. I shan't revert your edit again. FWIW, my take on it is that, along with many U2 followers, the reviewer saw Zooropa as the final flourish of the ideas and music that came out of the Achtung Baby sessions, Zooropa coming as it did as an extended EP in the midst of a tour to promote the previous album. From that viewpoint, the phrase "coda" would appear to make sense. Whether technically true or given one's individual interpretation of what the reviewer's ultimate viewpoint was, I thought that at least illustrating what is perhaps a less familiar term to some readers might be useful. Whatever, it's really not worth falling out over. I imagine that we will come into contact again at some point in the future and I hope that this episode doesn't adversely colour your opinion of me going forward. Best regards, danno_uk 00:22, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

I appreciate it. I wouldn't worry about it too much though. My only problem is that Zooropa doesn't fulfill the definition of "coda" as specified in coda (music) so much as it just fulfills the generic dictionary definition of "coda". Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 13:26, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Inception[edit]

Hello! See Talk:Inception for a discussion about mentioning the nationality in the lead section. Since the nationality is disputed, at the very least we should not mention anything in the lead sentence. In absence of that, identifying the language is a proper cultural alternative. TheOldJacobite is another editor that endorses the use of this term. For example, Amour (2012 film) is a French-language film that has a mix of different underlying nationalities.

Stone Temple Pilots[edit]

Would you mind going back and changing all your "number one" to "No. 1" (or similar) for this article? You changed all of them, and this isn't correct when referring to chart positions, etc. I would normally gladly point you to proof of the matter, but the Manual of Styles have changed so much since this article became GA that it would be more a waste of my time hunting this down than anything. Besides, I opened up a query at WikiProject Albums MOS, but I doubt there'll be a response for a very long time. Thanks ahead of time. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 05:05, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm afraid I'm going to have to disagree. I haven't seen any articles, songs or albums, pass through through the FAC process successfully using the abbreviation "No." instead of "number". Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 05:33, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
Believe it or not, in that case, that's ok. There's a gap in consistency between GA and FA articles that are pretty noticeable. (Another one is citing websites: in GA, there've been discussions that approved listing example.com in the work parameter of a citation template, while FA wants those websites listed in the publisher parameter.) Are you intending on taking STP through the FA process? If you interested, I ran it through a peer review one or two years ago and it got some feedback. That's as far as I had time to take it, at the time. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 07:58, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I don't consider myself knowledgeable enough about the album to take it through the FAC process, unfortunately. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:32, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Oh ok. I see you've got some FAs under your belt. I tried it with a shorter article a few years ago, and the process wasn't what I expected. Every piece of criticism boiled down to "flow", and that's just the most abstract bit of advice I've ever heard. I get discouraged if I can't reach the top, so I stopped writing and moved into imaging. But I may try the FAC process again in the future. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 20:31, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Arena rock[edit]

Since when did you decide that it wasn't a genre? Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:07, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Since it's not listed in List of rock genres, nor does the arena rock article identify it as a genre. It's a performance style/marketing term/buzzword. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:09, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Y2kcrazyjoker4, you have been making a very large number of edits around genres. Genres are often a source of disagreement on Wikipedia. I suggest the way forward is to consider basic Wikipedia policies around reliable sources and consensus. Perhaps it would be useful for you to seek some consensus on a project page before making so many changes, and considering what reliable sources say more.

April 2013[edit]

Look, I'm not going to give you the generic warn, but don't change genres without sources or consensus. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 22:48, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Please refrain from changing genres, as you did to In the Evening, without providing a source and without establishing a consensus on the article's talk page first. Genre changes to suit your own point of view are considered disruptive. Thank you. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 23:13, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

This includes Immigrant Song, Silversun Pickups, and especially Run (Snow Patrol song). You have written FAs in the past. You perfectly know how WP:NOR works. Stop and discuss or cite. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 23:13, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
You will also know, since you edit the genres of several articles, that Snow Patrol was never included in the Britpop movement and it is quite distinct from the post-Britpop movement they do fall under. I will not let the sloppy writing style of some random author of a Spin magazine article lead to inaccurate information being added here. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 23:17, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I know that, but it is not my or your work to decide when references are wrong or right, just to cite them as they were written. If you have a problem with Spin calling them "Britpop", or if you assume their are "post-Britpop", contact Spin or Andrew Beaujon and complain with them; or open a RSN case to decide why Spin is incorrect and it should not be cited this way. Also, this doesn't explain the other addition of unsourced genres to non-SP songs. Read WP:GWAR (if you haven't) to know how you are acting with those unsourced and original changes in this moment. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 23:24, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Check out Allmusic: it lists Britpop as a genre for Oasis, but not for Snow Patrol (or the album "Run" is from). Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 23:25, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
"SP is not listed as Britpop, therefore they are not Britpop", still being original research. Stop edit-warring or WP:AN3 will be involved here. You are not a newbie, stop acting as one. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 23:29, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Run (Snow Patrol song). Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 23:29, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

The boilerplate message really does not add any value to this discussion. Look: This very article from Spin discusses the work of 4 bands from the post-Britpop movement. It says post-Britpop in the review of Embrace's album but interchangeably uses the Britpop term in the section's title. It's clear here the publication is not applying any consistency to the terms and thus is not a great source to derive this information from. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 23:30, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Another article that says Snow Patrol is post-Britpop. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 23:34, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
The warn is a generic message to tell you "stop, or ANx will be required. As I told you, you have the option to contact either, the magazine or Andrew Beaujon. They are not Tom Cruise or Barack Obama or any other celebrity to ignore your messages, but instead you continued changing genres, first from AR and PBP to Rock alone, you are changing all of them without any evidence the song itself is any of them. The song has a genre, the album may have other. Madonna raps in American Life (song), should rap be added to the genre of the song and the album without references but "because the song is a pop rap/hip hop/rap song, it has those genres"? Of course not without evidence that seconds you. The same here. Alternative rock was there for years until I found the song genre is Britpop due to that reference. No source mentioned or called "Run" as "alternative rock", if not, it would have both genres. Your Spin's reference still trivial and still original research. The ref you are complaining was written by Beaujon, the source about the album was written by Mikael Wood about the album, and the third one is from another newspaper. You are now combining references to make a fact, per WP:NOR "Do not combine material from multiple sources to reach or imply a conclusion not explicitly stated by any of the sources." I mentioned your FAs because if you include unsourced content or original research, what are going to do the FA reviewers: pass your article with unsourced alleged ideas or pass it with those supported by references? Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 23:48, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
If some hack at Pitchfork decided to write an ironic article that called the song "rap", would you blindly just add it to the article and say "yep, that's rap" without using any common sense or discretion? Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 23:52, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
If the article uses irony in a sense like "Madonna has now become the greatest rapper thanks to 'American Life'", no, it is likely joking about Madonna, not the song. Also, if your point is "Beaujon is wrong" or assume he is wrong (cn per WP:BLP) his review has nothing to do with irony as he is not using irony in it. You can't use the performer main genre in all the songs s/he/they have released. Leona Lewis's main genre is R&B, should Hurt: The EP be labeled as R&B because of that, or viceversa? WP:NOR seconds that you can't do changes without proper sourcing. Other solutions are that you search for consensus to change the genre somewhere like talk page--I don't remember the article, but I once removed a genre that included no reference. I was reverted with the summary "consensus on talk page"--, contact Spin or Beaujon, find a reliable reference citing "alt. rock or post-Britpop", use WP:RSN, but do not change genres by simply alleged "ideas or facts", especially if they are based upon your experience. The truth is not always a reliable source: "the sky is blue, you don't need a reference for that, right?". Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it!

Ad:Nexus 7: Revision history

It's a Google's tablet why not just google the information ;-P. I haven't found a single success story and also have the tablet in question and microphone doesn't work. Not important? Well try to talk with an 8-inch tablet at your ear. --Nux (talk) 18:42, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Neither of those references are reliable sources. It appears a lot of original research was done on this subject. And I haven't read a single review by a critic that brought this up. Tablets aren't going to have every possible feature, just because something was omitted doesn't mean it needs to be haphazardly added to the article as if it's a problem. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:13, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Reports of users are real problems. That's not original research. OR would be if I would say I tried one of my headphones and it doesn't work. I've tired more then one, but that could be a problem with my device. Problem is there are reports from all over the world about non-functional external mic and no success stories. Not even one. Also look at this - note that ifixt makes teardowns and also did a teardown of Nexus 7.
As for why this wasn't noticed by reviewers - they usually don't have time to test throughly. See here when one of the users assumed it worked, but then noticed it's actually tablet microphone that pick up sound. --Nux (talk) 09:42, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

I undid your revision to Portlandia (TV series) because you did not explain the reasoning for removal. As a longtime editor, I am surprised you don't habitually provide an edit summary. Perhaps in the future you could make more of an effort to explain why you are making a change. Possibly this will benefit even you when you look back years later at edits, as well as those who monitor Recent changes, an article's edit history, and individual editor's watchlists. —EncMstr (talk) 20:11, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Leader vs. Champion[edit]

Hi. Hope all is well. I noticed you changing "champion" to "leader", as here. I was wondering why. Some people might think them equivalent, and wonder why one would change a perfectly appropriate format that was first chosen to a second format. Some people might think, as I do, that champion is better, as it connotes that one is a champion for the period in question -- a champion is only a champion at the end of the period in question, while one can be a leader any day of the season on a leaderboard and not be the champion at the end of the day. Third -- indeed, the list linked to is entitled a list of champions. Thought I would ask your thoughts in making the change. Best.--Epeefleche (talk) 19:39, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I see your point. However, the term "champion" usually seems to be associated with an organized competition or team title and not with leading in a statistical category. I think this would be something the WikiProject Baseball should gather a consensus for. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 05:10, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Cite web vs news[edit]

Saw your edit summary about using {{cite web}} if the source is found on the web. However, this is contrary to the documentation, which says it is used "to create citations for web sources that are not characterized by another CS1 template." In fact, pretty much all these templates have a url parameter. Not sure if it make any difference as far as formatting. I don't really care if it gets changed back, but maybe one less thing for you to worry about enforcing in the future. Cheers.—Bagumba (talk) 01:11, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

If this article appeared in a physical newspaper, I would agree with it being a news citation. However, I would assume you found this on the web and don't know if there is even a physical version of the article or not. If that's the case, would this not be handled the same way as any other web site (e.g. a web citation)? Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 05:07, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
There's nothing at cite news that says it has to be a physical newspaper. If a website is affiliated with a news organization, I usually opt for cite news, whereas MLB.com I would use cite web. At any rate, I see your perspective at least. —Bagumba (talk) 05:25, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

U2 Rock band[edit]

Hey!! I added a source. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/entertainment/post/2009/10/68500358/1 I do have the image of the cover of the game. besides why you always appear to revert my edits and not when I ask for your help?? Ms.Bono(zootalk) 17:28, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

For a band that has been around 37 years, how is speculation that the band was considering doing their own video game 4 years ago worthy of inclusion in an encyclopedia article? Anyways, the Rock Band series has concluded development, there is no chance that a U2 Rock Band will ever be released. If the game was going to happen, it would have been made by now. No news has appeared on this topic since 2009, anyways. The reason I don't help with everything you ask is sometimes the requests you make seem like spam - I don't really have the time or energy to be working on barnstars and newsletters. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 17:41, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry then. But what about when I asked you for help with GA or FA promotions? And you could explain me that the first time I asked you for help so I wouldn't waste my energy and time trying to catch someone's (I thought it would be interested in the subject) attention with spams. Anyways, sorry for all these month of spaming (which were things of a new editor getting used to WikiLife and looking for help of major editors in her interest area). I will try to find my own way around here without bothering you.
P.S. I admire you for all your work with U2 related subjects.
Bye forever.

Whole Lotta Love[edit]

Hello Y2kcrazyjoker4,

I don't want be involved in genre wars about this song but "heavy metal" is not the genre which can be used to describe "Whole lotta love". I agree Led Zeppelin is a pioneer of the "heavy metal" genre, but I don't think it's a reason to describe the band itself (nor its sound) as "heavy metal". In fact, I think the word "heavy metal" is improperly used to describe any heavy rock sound, even if it's not heavy metal. For example, AC/DC sound is often describe as a "heavy metal" because it is quite heavy, even if it's more described as "hard rock" or "blues rock" by music critics. Heavy metal is a genre which features too much subgenres to be used like this, especially for the "so-called" first heavy metal bands such as Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple.

Led Zeppelin is much more a hard rock/proto-metal band rather than a true "heavy metal" band such as Judas Priest, Metallica or Iron Maiden, and Whole lotta love is a perfect example of a hard rock/proto-metal song with blues influences which looks like heavy metal but which is not really heavy metal. For example, this reference talks about the the proto-metal crunch of “Whole Lotta Love.” and supports my view. Synthwave.94 (talk) 18:15, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

That's all well and good, and I don't necessarily disagree with you, but I hear a lot of opinions in your message, unfortunately. I see the source you provided calls the song "proto-metal", but there are many, many other reliable sources that have called the band (and most likely the song) simply "heavy metal". I don't really see the point in getting specific about whether it's "proto" or not, the "proto-metal" term redirects to heavy metal music anyways and it seems like it's all semantics about timeframe and what not. All I know is that Led Zeppelin were considered one of the first heavy metal bands, not a precursor to the genre (which is what the "proto" prefix would imply). Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 02:41, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
I know Led Zeppelin is very often regarded as one of the very first heavy metal bands (Allmusic describes the band as the first "true metal band" for example) and I agree some Led Zeppelin songs can be described as heavy metal songs, such as Immigrant Song (even if the song is more often described as a "hard rock" or a "proto-metal" song by music critics) and the . But not all Led Zeppelin songs are heavy metal songs. Nobody's Fault but Mine or Black Dog are for example described as hard rock/blues rock songs by references that are found on the two Wikipedia articles and like Nobody's Fault but Mine, Whole Lotta Love borrowed elements from blues songs. So I don't think "heavy metal" should be used to describe "Whole Lotta Love" (which is certainly not the heaviest song Led Zeppelin recorded) because the opening riff of the song is closer to hard rock rather than heavy metal (and the part after the psychedelic interlude too).

U2 by U2 and U2 iPod Special Edition[edit]

Hi Y2kcrazy...

I am a little worried because, there is nothing about U2 by U2 or The U2 iPod Special Edition in U2 main article. I was wondering if it is okay to add something about that? Can I do it by myself or you will do it? Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:29, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
The U2 iPod is mentioned in the 2000-2006 section. I'm not sure the U2 by U2 book is important enough that we need to mention it in the band article, though. For example, the band's compilation album and reissues aren't mentioned either, otherwise the article would become bogged down with details. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 16:48, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I get it, I just thought that as U2 by U2 is the story of the band told by the band, it deserves to be mentioned in the article. Miss Bono [zootalk] 17:30, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Photo of Odin Lloyd[edit]

I don't think the photo of Odin Lloyd was spam. Perhaps it should be deleted on grounds that a link to a picture is not a recommended Wikipedia practice.--Gciriani (talk) 20:19, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

FA possible articles[edit]

Hi kcrazy,

I am asking you for help since you are one of the best editors who works in U2 related articles. Melicans left a message here about possible U2 FA article and I would like you to check them. Thanks, your annoying co-worker

Adam Clayton Article[edit]

Hello, I added a couple of thing to the article. would you mind to take a look at it and fix whatever it's wrong. Thanks. Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:18, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

All done. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:49, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I will add more tomorrow, would you mind reviewing it too? Miss Bono [zootalk] 19:52, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Recent edit: Alternative music[edit]

See this. Do you think it should stay that way or the previous one? Miss Bono [zootalk] 12:37, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

I'm undecided on the change, but leaning towards "it needs to be reverted because it is uncited". Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 15:01, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
I will revert it. Thanks for the thoughts. Oh, we have an upcoming interview for us in the Signpost. more details in the WPU2 talk. Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:16, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

U2 Barnstar Hires.png The U2 Barnstar
I hereby award you the U2 Barnstar for your efforts in helping Wikiproject U2. Congratulations!
I know we are not good friends but we have one thing in common, U2. I wanted to say thank you for everything you do for the project. And I admire you... Enjoy this barnstar. Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:22, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, I appreciate the kind words. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 13:30, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome. I hope we can solve our differences in the near future. And sorry if I have done something that bothers you in any way. I didn't mean to. Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:36, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Walk On Video[edit]

We have a section for the two videos of the song. I need, if possible that you find some reference to source that whole section or at least the part that says that one of the videos was filmed in Rio de Janeiro. Thanks. Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:08, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

At the moment, I've found this. Not sure if there is a better source available. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 16:18, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
Ok thank you so much. I cannot follow the link due to my internet restrictions, but it surely works. Can you add it to the article? Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:37, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

walk on the whole article[edit]

I am trying to improve the article, but due to my lack of Internet access I cannot find anything to add to the Composition and theme section. Do you think you can find something similar to the first sentence of the same section in City of Blinding Lights? Many thanks! Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:19, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
I haven't read U2 by U2 in a while, so perhaps there is some information in there I can add. To my knowledge, there hasn't been a lot of information in books or magazines about the development of the song, so we'll see. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 14:28, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
I've just read U2 by U2, there is nothing about the tempo or keys. Just about the inspiration. I don't know if there's something at u2.com or at atu2.com, please give it a try there. Thanks! Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:31, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
Is it bad having quotes on articles? Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:20, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
Not necessarily, why do you ask? Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 15:36, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
I am adding info to Elevation and I found it would be good to have a quote by Edge on the rythm pf the song, but I wasn't sure. Anyways, please, check that out in case I've mess it up. Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:44, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
Can you do some copyediting to the Elevation article? Miss Bono [zootalk] 18:26, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
I'll look at it the first chance I get. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 12:54, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Mother's Milk[edit]

Could you do me a favor and weigh in at Talk:Mother's Milk? The guys that took it to FA are not around any more, so it's a bit hard to monitor and discuss. --Laser brain (talk) 13:23, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Warrior[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. I have noticed that some of your recent genre changes, such as the one you made to Warrior (Kesha album), have conflicted with our neutral point of view and verifiability policies. While we invite all users to contribute constructively to Wikipedia, we urge all editors to provide reliable sources for edits made. When others disagree, we recommend you to seek consensus for certain edits by discussing the matter on the article's talk page. Thank you. --Thevampireashlee (talk) 12:30, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Wake Up genre issue[edit]

Adding cited, applying genres isn't really disruptive editing. And just undoing my changes without explaining why you did so is not going to convince me to stop. 3jz01bcs (talkcontributions) 17:48, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

I disagree. Having to sort out your constant genre changes to the article is very much disruptive–by nature, an edit war is disruptive. First, I had to instruct you how to cite your changes. Then, I had to stress the WP:RS policy of Wikipedia, as the sources were not reliable. Even if you have progressed past those issues, the real problem here is that you are still being a "genre warrior" and focusing most of your edits on making the genre field of article in line with what you feel is right. I really need to stress this essay to explain why all these edits are counterproductive. Take this quote from the essay, for example:
Ultimately, you could find 25 different reviews of Wake Up that describe it 25 different ways, but that doesn't mean it falls under 25 genres or even needs that level of detail about the sound in the genre field. Just let things be. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 23:24, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

U2 by U2[edit]

Hey! I am working to create the article for u2 by U2. Do you think you can find a picture of the cover and upload it. Let me know. Thanks :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:00, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply - I can upload the image, but I'm concerned that the U2 by U2 book is not notable enough for its own article. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 16:05, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
Oh, thanks, no problem for being late. Take a look at this and teññ me what you think of it. Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:12, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

WP U2 in the Signpost[edit]

The WikiProject Report would like to revisit WikiProject U2 for a Signpost article. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? If so, here are the questions for the interview.

Would you consider participating? I was thinking about waiting until you and Dream out loud have answer all the questions, you are the masters here :D Miss Bono [zootalk] 19:26, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
I will try to respond sometime in the next few days. No promises though, I'm a bit busy right now. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:34, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
ok, no problem. thanks. Miss Bono [zootalk] 19:37, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

U2 Awards[edit]

Hey, Y, I was checking this out and saw some awards received by U2 that don't appear here. Can you check that please and tell me if I should add the rest of the awards? Reply asap, Thanks. Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:48, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I would definitely add any missing Billboard awards. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 14:29, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Also, it [the article] doesn't say that U2 received any touring artist award in 2012 but in 2010. What would you do? Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:43, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
I missed this at first, but the Billboard Touring Awards are separate from the Billboard Music Awards (hence, the confusion). Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 14:53, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

So, we should split it into two sections or leave them all together?

I am confused, in the article I pointed out (Bb Touring Awards, it says that U2 won the Top Tour Award in 2010, 2011 and 2005, but it doesn't mention 2012. So I went right straight to 2012_Billboard_Music_Awards and I found that they won the Top Touring Award that year. Then, I went to 2011_Billboard_Music_Awards to see if the names of the categories matched and they did. So I am more than confused now.

In the first link I gave you said that the Top Touring Artist that year was Top Tour: Roger Waters for The Wall Live and not U2 for 360º. Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:55, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Adam's wedding[edit]

Can you find some references on line to the statement someone made on the article? Finally he married. Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:00, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Copy-edit[edit]

Thanks for the copy-edit you did for the Grand Theft Auto V page. Would you be able to continue at some point on the Development section? I really want this section as tight as possible. CR4ZE (talk) 02:55, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I can look at it at some point. It might not be right away (maybe after the game is released), but I will review it. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 13:52, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, any time you can. I want my first FA and can't do it alone. CR4ZE (talk) 12:30, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Mariano's status as 'retired'[edit]

I love your work and love your article, Y2k, but I think at this point it's silly to continually revert attempts at making his article reflect his retired status. For one, you asked for headlines on his retirement, Here is one. More importantly, you repeatedly ask for his 'retirement papers'. Such papers are entirely voluntary in MLB, we list thousands of players as retired who have never signed official papers. He was under a one year contract that has ended, repeatedly stated his intent to retire at season's end, and now that we're at season's end has again said "I'm done" (the link I posted). Staxringold talkcontribs 17:00, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

WP:OVERLINK[edit]

First of all, no need to publicly insult my intelligence with "you really dont understand WP:OVERLINK". Second, WP:OVERLINK states "Generally, a link should appear only once in an article" and that's what I applied. -- Lyverbe (talk) 21:53, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I think you are misunderstanding how to apply the rule. Key related subjects (e.g. actors from the film, main characters) shouldn't be omitted simply to adhere to a subjective guideline. Generally, topics should be linked in the lead regardless, and then they should be linked once in the body of the article. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 02:03, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Green Day and U2 image and others[edit]

It has a fair use in that article. Why did you remove it. It was an image used to depict the performance of both bands together at Louisiana Superdome.

And, why cannot the quotes be there? Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 19:23, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Because it all seems very excessive. Not every space in the right-hand margin of the article needs to be filled with something. Some of the images, like the skyline or New York and Miami, are merely placed for decoration. (See WP:PERTINENCE: "You should always be watchful not to overwhelm an article with images by adding more just because you can.") To me, the whole point of the timeline article should be the chronology of the various events in U2's history, not the decorative elements that we can place next to the prose. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:45, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
oh, I get the point. I don't care about the Miami or the NYC images, thinking well they were unnecessary, but what about the image of the music video for "TSAC". Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 19:53, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Any copyrighted image that is used with a non-free use rationale should be limited in its use, and it generally should only appear in articles in which it is used to identify the subject (e.g. the music video section of "The Saints are Coming" is the most relevant). For example, the Achtung Baby album cover image is only used in the album article to identify the subject of the article, since the image is copyrighted and not a free image. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 14:52, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Ok, can I add the image to the TSAC article? Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 15:05, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
I don't see why not, just be sure to adjust the non-free use justification on the image page to account for the fact that you're adding the image to a different article. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 15:10, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Should I erase the non-free justification from Timeline of U2? Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 15:14, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
I would just modify it slightly so that it works for "The Saints are Coming" article. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 15:18, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Done, please, make sure everything is ok. Thanks. Oh, also, can you find a reliable source that states that the new song by U2 was full released yesterday, 30 Oct? Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 15:21, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

I don't know if you celebrate Halloween but... Happy Halloween![edit]

About ZooTV article and MacPhisto[edit]

The other day when I had a little bit of Internet access I could download a page that described each one of the shows where MacPhisto appeared. The speeches and the calls where explained, so I was thinking about making an article or a sub article for that, just wanted to ask for your opinion on this. I don't know much about this but, isn't MacPhisto enough relevant to have his own article? Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 16:57, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I highly doubt that any of this would be notable enough to warrant its own article. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:28, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
What about adding the list to the MacPhisto section in the ZooTV article? Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 18:33, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I don't know what makes this list you're talking about notable, though. The Zoo TV article goes over each of Bono's live characters and explains how they were conceived, what their costumes were, and what kind of personality they had. I don't think there needs to be a list of what he said while in character as each of these personas. We're talking about a tour that was 157 shows, too. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:43, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I wasn't talking about to add everything Bono said. I was talking about, the shows where he played MacPhisto, like... date of the show, and name of the person/company he phoned. I was not sure, so I asked you first. Please don't get mad about my question. Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 18:47, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm not getting mad, I just don't see how a list like this would pass various Wikipedia guidelines (WP:NOTDIARY, WP:INDISCRIMINATE, WP:FANCRUFT). Furthermore, if you add information like this for MacPhisto, it would be probably make the rest of the article unbalanced in comparison to the sections on The Fly and Mirrorball Man. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:44, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I see, I haven't heard about tha Fancruft before, I better read that, I don't wanna look like a crazy fan or something. Thanks for the help and for your opinion. Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 20:15, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Also, I making a draw of MacPhisto to add it to the section in the ZooTV, since we have a picture for The Fly and none for MacPhisto or The Mirror Ball Man, I am not sure I can make one of latter because I have never seen him in a picture close enough to catch the details. I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 21:07, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

U2 for FT[edit]

I just read about this Wikipedia:Featured_topic_candidates/U2/archive1, and I would like to work toward have that Feature Topic. What do you think? I will ask User:Ironholds to see if he can make a peer review for Bono and I will start working in The Edge article's improvement. I would like to know if you are interested in this. Thanks. Miss Bono [hello, hello!] 19:59, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Mariano Rivera[edit]

Yes so lets deprive people from useful links. No room is being saved by not listing all of the years with links. There will be two lines regardless. Sorry but thats silly BS.--Yankees10 21:18, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

By the way, you removed the All-Star Game MVP for who knows what reason Wait what? When was there a consensus about AS Game MVP's not going in the infobox? Please provide a link or something because I don't remember that at all.--Yankees10 21:19, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
I understand what you're saying, but if players want to reach the article for a specific All-Star Game, it's in the body of the article. An infobox is supposed to be a summary of the person, and all too often, it becomes a link farm. Regarding ASG MVP not being included in the infobox, please see here. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 22:13, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Portal:U2 for peer review[edit]

Nexus 7[edit]

Hi Y2kcrazyjoker4, regarding the Nexus 7 revert: The battery issue is an incredibly commonly reported issue (Google 'Nexus 7 won't turn on'), and is the chief cause of returns to Asus. What isn't so widely reported, and not officically by Asus/Google, is the cause, which is that the battery can shift by a couple of mm within its housing, causing the cable linking it to the motherboard, which doesn't have the extra length, to disconnect. Community fixes usually boil down to sliding a piece of card between the battery and the side of the phone, as per answer. I'll try to find a more 'official' type site explaining the issue and fix before adding the statement back to the Nexus 7 article. Cheers Grunners (talk) 10:58, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Arkham Origins[edit]

Why are you being a douche over this. I undid PART of your edit, PART, because it repeated info, and you've now reverted it twice, first time saying it wasn't explained why, the second time saying "the only thing awkward is saying a game moved its development away, as if a game has self awareness or Rocksteady was originally involved in the development of this game" yet editing the entire sentence into a worse state with the exact same problem in repeating that WB Montreal developed it and saying it in a poor way, where you are clearly straining to say it in a different way just for the sake of making the edit.

QOTSA[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. I have noticed that some of your recent genre changes, such as the one you made to Queens of the Stone Age, have conflicted with our neutral point of view and verifiability policies. While we invite all users to contribute constructively to Wikipedia, we urge all editors to provide reliable sources for edits made. When others disagree, we recommend you to seek consensus for certain edits by discussing the matter on the article's talk page. Thank you. STATic message me! 17:31, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

A quick search shows hundreds of sources that could be used - plenty of critics have called them "stoner rock", I've chosen just a few. Hopefully this illustrates my point. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:05, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Genre warring[edit]

You'd better stop genre warring. Your arguments based on your personal knowledge don't matter. I warned you when reverting you but of course you didn't want to listen to me. Moreover you violated WP:SYNTH on Radio Ga Ga. Anyway here's what you got.

First off: if "stadium rock" was a genre, why doesn't the Wikipedia article for it identify it as a genre? Why doesn't that article have the genre infoboxes that every other genre article has? Furthermore, I don't think you have a clue what WP:SYNTH is for: that guideline says that you cannot use Fact A from source X and Fact B from source Y to arrive at your own conclusion - the guideline isn't outlawing the referencing of individual facts from separate sources, nor is it saying that the entirety of reference has to be used. Secondly, you are just as guilty of 3RR as I am, so I have no idea why you think reporting me is your solution. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:44, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't care of what Wikipedia says. Wikipedia is not a reliable source in nature. I only trust sources I'm able to find, that's it. Unlike you, I didn't reach 4 reverts, here's the huge difference between you and me. You violated WP:SYNTH because you removed stadium rock while it is perfectly mentionned, along with pop rock, in the corresponding review (or if you prefer you cherrypicked pop rock, which is certainly not a good idea). Anyway you shouldn't have started an edit war with me. That's all I have to say. Synthwave.94 (talk) 18:54, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Once again - you don't understand how WP:SYNTH works. If your argument is that you can't use multiple sources to cite multiple genres, then why would you keep synthpop as a genre, since that clearly comes from a different source than the one that sources pop rock and stadium rock? I removed stadium rock because it's not a distinct music genre. It's a performance style, or a movement in music touring/performance from the late 1970s. But there are no distinct stylistic elements of the music of "stadium rock" itself to separate it from other genres of music... unless your other identifying criteria is that it falls under the broad category of "rock anthem". You say Wikipedia is not a reliable source, but don't you think if there were enough reliable sources in existence to call "stadium rock" a genre, the article would have been formatted to call it a genre? Critics and journalists can call music whatever they want, but that doesn't make any description that they throw around a "genre". Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:21, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

So why does About.com(which is, as far as I know, a reliable source commonly used on Wikipedia) calls arena rock a "genre" in this case ? Synthwave.94 (talk) 19:48, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

I'd put more stock in that if it was more than just a one-off article by someone writing for About.com, but I do not see any critical analysis in that article or any other about what makes music itself "stadium rock", other than the artist was from the 70's/80's and performed in arenas/stadiums.

Jim Thome[edit]

Hi Y2kcrazyjoker4. I wanted to thank you for your copyedits on Jim Thome, and wanted to ask you what your initial reaction would be as far as an FA candidacy. Are there any blatant oversights in the article? Does the prose need additional refinement? Thanks in advance. Go Phightins! 22:38, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

The last time I had looked it over, it looked like the prose was in good shape but that there were some seasons that were glossed over - while a lot of achievements/milestones were mentioned, it seemed as though a summary of overall performance for those seasons (e.g. end of year stats) was missing in some cases. I haven't read through the article more thoroughly since then, but I can do that if you'd like. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 22:58, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
If you wouldn't mind a thorough read-through, I'd appreciate it. Go Phightins! 15:05, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

I don't see how any of the changes is an improvement over the way things were.... Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 00:36, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
There was nothing wrong with my edit. And there definitely should have at least been a reason for the revert. Anyways let me explain some of my changes. First was moving the K's before the saves: This is was a pure consistency move with almost all other infoboxes having the saves after W-L record, ERA, K's in that order. Second was changing WHIP to Walks plus hits per inning pitched: We have earned run average and not ERA, so I figured it should be the same with WHIP. Third is removing Award: Theres no reason for the word to be there just like "winner" after Gold Gloves and Silver Slugger is not necessary. Aren't we trying to save space in these infoboxes? Award is not necessary. Last is the AL Championship Series to ALCS: ALCS is the most common phrase, plus it saves space by just using ALCS.--Yankees10 01:35, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Moving saves and WHIP last is OK by me. Unabbreviating WHIP to be seems to be at odds with your desire to save space (IMO, I think most people are concerned with saving vertical space so that infoboxes don't take over article pages). I think the difference between WHIP and ERA is that people still say "earned run average", whereas you never hear someone say "walks plus hits per inning pitched". The main problem I have is that having the full link adjusts the table format so that all of the numbers are squished to the right. I would be OK with it if you can break up the wikilink to span 2 lines instead of 1. "ALCS" might be common to baseball fans, but to casual readers who may not be familiar with the sport, I find it helps to spell out as much of the abbreviation as the infobox will comfortably permit. For the MVP Awards, I find it appropriate for consistency reasons to keep the word "award" at the ending (we don't currently say "AL Cy Young", "Delivery Man of the Year" or "AL Rolaids Relief Man"). Most people are not familiar with what these designations are. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 21:52, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Black Keys - new album (Turn Blue) release date[edit]

Hi - you recently reverted my changes regarding the release date of The Black Keys new album, Turn Blue.

The basic fact remains, per the band's own website: The album was not released today (05/12/14). The album will be released tomorrow (05/13/14). How is the French Amazon website a more valid source than the band's own website?

http://www.theblackkeys.com/turnblue

("AVAILABLE MAY 13TH")

I apologize if the edit I made was not done correctly. Please make the edit accordingly to Wiki's standards so that the page no longer lists the incorrect date.

EdgeDC (talk) 18:20, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

The first date on which an album becomes available is the release date, regardless of what the band's website may say (e.g. its US launch date). See here: "Only the earliest known date that the album was released should be specified; later release dates (incl. re-issues) can be mentioned in a Release history section."

Yeah, that's the one bad thing about this release and as soon as it dropped I knew it would be chaos. With a long leadup there's time to get the article organized ahead of time. Without even a title, everyone tries to do everything at once. It was pretty easy to see what you were trying to do, to be honest. All it took was actually looking at the edits that were being made!

Disambiguation Page on Songs of Innocence[edit]

Hey, I thought the disambiguation of the U2 album was necessary simply because the title is taken from an extremely well-known book by Blake (which Bono all but confirmed by saying he may make a second album called "Songs of Experience" which forms the second half of Blake's book) and querying "Songs of Innocence" still redirects to that book's page, disambiguating the two on the album's page may be quite necessary to clear up any confusion users may have.Artimaean (talk) 21:12, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

There is no reason to add a disambiguation hatnote regarding the book, though, to the U2 album article. There's no way you could have reached the album article accidentally looking for the book. If you searched "Songs of Innocence", you'd have been directed to the book page. If you started at the disambiguation page "Songs of Innocence and of Experience (disambiguation)", you can clearly have the book and U2 album differentiated for you, making any potential confusion a non-issue. Thus, an article with "(album)" at the end of the title doesn't need any further disambiguation from a book. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 00:53, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

The Police having the biggest band in the world title?[edit]

The Police had that title years ago on their wikipedia, why changed it now? It was originally like that, also, The Police had the best selling album by a band in 1983 and the best selling single with Every Breath You Take in 1983. Can you give me any bands that were bigger and more popular than The Police in 1983? Give me one and I would remove it and won't re-edit it again. Also, look at Led Zeppelin, their page says Biggest band in the world from 1971-1975 but you don't do nothing about that but they were the biggest band in the world from that 4 year period. They put out grossing tours and successful selling well albums. The Police did the same in 1983. They were the most popular rock band or band of that whole year, they had the best selling album in the U.S. and also in Europe, they had the best selling single as well. What is wrong with that title? Are you a hater of their music or what? Led Zeppelin has their, been having theirs for years and The Police as well. The Police section makes sense because it says Biggest band in the world in 1983 and 1983 only which they were, commercially they were. Accept that fact, find me a band from 1983 that was bigger and more popular. Find me one. The Police was the biggest band in the world in 1983 and it's been like that for years until you changed it. Leave it like it originally does. Also, how about Led Zeppelin? They had theirs, let The Police had theirs.( Mikeis1996 (talk) 02:05, 27 January 2015 (UTC) )

You are arguing this like it's a simple yes/no question. "Biggest band in the world" is completely subject to interpretation. It's not a title you hold like "prime minister" or "prince". It's an opinion, not a fact. And if you intend to put it in the article because that's your opinion, then it surely it doesn't belong. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 02:13, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

I actually add the most popular band in the world because that is what my sources claimed. Also, how does Led Zeppelin keep theirs and not The Police? Why do you hate that title? They were the biggest band in the world in 1983, they were the most popular. I think the most popular is more appropriate so I think that is right. Especially when my sources claimed they were the most popular band in the world during that time period. Face it, The Police were the biggest band in the world in 1983. Also, why don't you ever check Led Zeppelin wikipedia and come back and give me your response on the section of biggest band in the world from 1971-1975. I want to see your response on that.( Mikeis1996 (talk) 02:21, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Also, the biggest band in the world is not a opinion, it is a fact. The biggest band in the world doesn't mean the greatest by any means, it means the most successful and most popular band in the world. You didn't even show me any bands who were more popular than them in 1983. Also, why change the most popular band in the world? I got two sources to back it up, it is right there in the section of Synchronicity. Also what award are you even talking about, are you just making random things or random ideas up? Your getting too hard on me in the subject, to me and many other people, the biggest band in the world is not announced in any award at all, the biggest band in the world is the most successful in terms of singles, radio play, tour grossing and also, album selling. The Police had all of that in 1983 but you want to change it for a silly section. Career peak sounds boring and bland, it should at least be re-named to the most popular band in the world because the most popular band in the world is more appropriate than just saying the biggest. What is wrong with the most popular band in the world title? Is not a award or nothing, it is right there in terms of commercial success. Accept that fact, biggest band in the world means the most successful in terms of album sales, singles on chart positions and tour grossing sales, The Police were simply that, career peak sounds bland. The most popular band in the world sounds more fit.( Mikeis1996 (talk) 02:34, 27 January 2015 (UTC) )

Nexus 10 successor[edit]

The Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 were both sold together. Although the Nexus 10 stayed out of stock for quiet a while it was never technically retired. The Nexus 7 (2013) and the Nexus 10 were both removed together, when the Nexus 9 was released. Its not a slippery slope at all.

Coachella attendance 2014[edit]

Hi. How are you? I was wondering if we could compromise on the Coachella attendance numbers. I have attended Coachella multiple times and I actually live in Indio, CA. Have you attended Coachella also? So the "tickets" are actually wristbands on human's wrists which let one human in for the 3 day weekend. They sold 96,500 wristbands for one weekend. So, 96,500 people attend each weekend. The total attendance for 6 days is 193,000 total. 96,500 multiplied by 2 equals 193,000. That is 96,500 wristbands multiplied by 2 weekends. The reference is wrong because it multiplies 96,500 by 6 days for a total of 579,000. I feel that is a meaningless and misleading number and not encyclopedic in nature. Also, if you review previous years attendance the number of 579,000 is misleading. Attendance figures are 158,387 in 2012 and 180,000 in 2013. Thus, 2014 attendance should read 96,500 attendees each weekend for a total of 193,000 over both weekends. If you do feel the number 579,000 is accurate, then we should edit all the past years attendances so the attendance numbers across all years are comparable and relevant. I am simply interested in the most accurate information we can provide. The reference cited is half correct and half incorrect. I accept the number 96,500, and I accept the number 96,500 multiplied by 2 for 2 weekends, but I do not accept 96,500 multiplied by 6 for 6 days. The same humans attend all 3 days and should not be counted in triplicate. Some of them stay on site in the campgrounds right? What do you say? Have fun at Coachella this year! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ozmaweezer (talkcontribs) 11:32, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

I have been to Coachella (the last 2 years) and am going again this year, so to answer your question, yes, I am pretty familiar with the ticketing/attendance for the festival. It's funny you mention this topic, because I am working on a table in my sandbox that would add an "average daily attendance" column that would compare attendance/ticket sales on the same scale for each year. The attendance/sales figure available for a given year have come from Billboard, so if they use an aggregate attendance figure or total ticket sales... I really have no control over that except to report the figure they used and try to make it as clear as possible what they are saying. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talk

contributions) 17:21, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Oh wow! Your sandbox is really cool. Thanks for replying to me. Another complication is in the beginning they offered a combination of passes at different prices. A one day pass, a two day pass, and a three day pass. Those early attendance numbers are hard to analyze because figures are not available for the break down of true attendance in those years on a day to day basis. We can't believe everything we read on the internet. You do have control over what you post and what you report. So just because Billboard posted the number of 579,000, we should take a step back and use our common sense. I feel Billboard made an error. Or at least I feel the Billboard number is out of context within the Wikipedia page. It seems over-hyped or exaggerated. I also feel the term "aggregate attendance" has multiple meanings and should be dropped from the page. It could mean aggregate over both weekends which is where I get my number of 193,000. Or it could mean aggregate of all the days which is 579,000 which to me is a number with no real meaning. There were not 579,000 people there. There were not 579,000 wristbands. There were not even 579,000 wrists. I feel it would be more encyclopedic for the Coachella Wikipedia page to simply list "ticket sales." Thanks for responding to me. Long live Coachella. I feel it should state, for improved accuracy and realism, "In 2014 the festival sold 96,500 tickets each weekend for a combined total of 193,000 tickets over both weekends." Or something to that effect. We can still use the Billboard article referenced because it states 96,500 per day attendance. We will just use our discretion and common sense.

PopMart Tour to FA-class (or other U2 articles)[edit]

Hi there, I'm not sure if you're still active with U2-related articles, but I've been looking at working on the project and getting some more to featured status.

Dear User:Y2kcrazyjoker4 (talk), Colorwerx.net is not the official source for Major League Baseball (MLB) team-by-team color information. Please leave the colors alone. MLB.com is the official source for HTML color codes on a team-by-team basis. Charlesaaronthompson (talkcontributions) 23:26, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Colowerx specializes in uniform and color research for every sport, going back to the inception of each franchise. The purported "source" you are using is just a banner image from MLB.com. There is no guarantee that the graphic designer of the image adhered to the official color/branding sheet for the team. There are thousands of variations of team colors used all over their websites. Until you can show me the Royals official color/branding sheet, I fail to see how that banner image is official in any way. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 01:34, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
OK, but "Colorwerx.net" is NOT the official source for HTML color information from the National Football League (NFL) (they have their own source – NFLMedia.com) or for the National Basketball Association (NBA) (they also have their own source – NBA Media Central). Please do NOT change any more color codes for any more teams. Colorwerx.net is NOT official in any way. Also, stop changing the color information for MLB teams. The color codes in the banner images I have provided in each team's article page history are as accurate as possible, since I do not have credentials to MLBStyleGuide.com. Otherwise, I would provide MLB teams' official color/branding sheets. Also, there is no guarantee that Colorwerx.net has access to official color/branding sheets for all 30 MLB teams either. I fail to see how Colorwerx.net is official in any way. Charlesaaronthompson (talkcontributions) 03:31, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Earlier, you said you obtained your HTML color codes for Major League Baseball (MLB) teams from Colorwerx. I'm curious if Colorwerx has the same HTML codes as this website from Arc90? There's a disclaimer on the Arc90 Team Colors website that says some are approximations, which might apply to MLB teams, per this webpage. Also, as far as the Miami Marlins' HTML color codes are concerned, I would like to call your attention to this photograph of all four Marlins' uniforms. The orange color is radically different from the one you've been using (#F9423A). It would appear the team officially uses #FF6600, judging by that photograph, this image, and this link. Please stop changing the Marlins' orange HTML HEX color code. I may not have access to MLBStyleGuide.com, but this is as close to official as I have access to, since the source is MLB.com.

Spelling in quoted text[edit]

I don't think your edit to Zoo TV Tour helps anyone by preserving a misspelling; Wikipedia looks sloppier and less professional; its readers get to stumble over a misspelling; editors who are looking for certain misspellings will come to this article again and again and waste time figuring out whether to change it or do something else with it. I don't have a copy of the Chronicle from that day in 1992, so I can't check to see if it actually had that misspelling or if it was an error that was made while being typed into Wikipedia. Even if the Chronicle did misspell it, is it important for Wikipedia's readers to know that 23 years ago a typesetter accidentally left out a space? I sure don't think so. If it was the typesetter that lost the space, preserving the misspelling also reflects badly on Joel Selvin, who might not have made the mistake. By now you can probably appreciate why WP:QUOTE says "Exceptions are trivial spelling or typographical errors that obviously do not affect the intended meaning; these may be silently corrected ...". If you are sure that the space was missing from the 23-year-old article, you would be correct to mark it with "[sic]", but I can't see how that makes Wikipedia any better. Happy editing!

I'm going to add it one more time, plus a sentence about the album being streamed for free on NPR. I do not want to banned for vandalism; if you take a look at my edit history you will see that I am a dedicated contributor to Wikipedia, especially about my favourite band Tame Impala, because I believe in knowledge for all. However unlike you, I do not subscribe to dogmatic, blind beliefs about 'relevance'. I am not a Wikipedian; you lot are admirable in your loyalty but I dismay at your lack of individual thought and your subservience to invented and imagined authority. You're the kind of person who would have followed the Nazis like a loyal little dog. It makes me sick, frankly. So I will add it once more, because I believe in the truth. If you remove it again, you will win. But only at the cost of your own ability to think for yourself. Choose wisely, Y2kcrazyjoker4. Crazy Eddy (talk) 13:52, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Official MLB team HTML/Pantone colors[edit]

I was wondering if Colorwerx.net gets its Major League Baseball (MLB) team HTML/Pantone color information from MLB's Online Style Guide website? Or I guess, where do you get your MLB team HTML/Pantone color information from? Why do you continually change MLB team color information? I'm tired of this edit war. I just want official color information to show up in the articles. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 06:17, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Since ColorWerx is in the middle of a renovation, I would refer to this topic from SportsLogos.net, since it seems your question is the same one as from the topic. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 06:34, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
 #F46634 ,  #FCDE04 ,  #0482CC ,  #A4AAAC ,  #000000 ,  #FFFFFF  as the official colors.
Source 4 shows:
 #F9423A ,  #FFD100 ,  #0077C8 ,  #8A8D8F ,  #000000 ,  #FFFFFF .
If I use this website to convert the RGB codes listed on source 4, the colors show in favor of source 4. (Please note that the color converter at yellowpipe.com is pretty acurate. I've tested it on several university colors that list both a RGB code and hex code at their website.) Since there are multiple websites that list the hex codes, maybe those should be the ones listed until you can find the official codes? Personally, I'd go with sources 1, 2 & 3 because there are multiple sources showing the same thing. Corkythehornetfan 01:19, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
Here is another picture from MLB.com that says the Miami Marlins's HTML color code for Orange is  #FF6600 . I found out what the HTML color code is using Adobe Photoshop's Eyedropper Tool (I).

Let's be clear, screenshotting a team logo and using the eyedropper tool in Photoshop is no confirmation that that is the exact HTML code for the team color. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 20:43, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
Obviously, you think that  #F9423A  (which is Pantone Warm Red C, btw) is correct. The question is, why? Do you have access to MLB's online style guide, and does that website say that's what the color is? Why are you so insistent on THAT color? Where's YOUR confirmation that  #F9423A  is correct? Also, you didn't answer my question from earlier about whether Colorwerx.net has access to MLB's online style guide. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 21:12, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
I didn't answer your question because I don't know. ColorWerx staff will have to tell you where they source their info from, and right now, that looks decidedly impossible, since the website is under construction. Ideally, all of the colors should be sourced from the same place, and since ColorWerx has been accurate about many other colors from many other teams from many other sports, I don't see why we should deviate in one (or more) cases. Who typically has access to the MLB Style Guide website? Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 21:47, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
I've been looking into it. Apparently only business partners of MLB or media who cover MLB (such as Paul Lukas of Uni Watch or Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net) have access to MLB's online style guide. I know this, because I have first-hand experience interacting with them by asking about it on Twitter. My whole spiel is that I just think color info should be official and should come directly from either the team itself or the relevant league. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 22:37, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

July 2015[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Module:Baseball color/data shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. —Bagumba (talk) 18:33, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Achtung Baby query[edit]

Hi there. Please would you consider reinstating the Bon Jovi quote? I believe it's at least as relevant as, and arguably more interesting than, critics' opinions, given that – irrespective of one's views on his music – Bon Jovi was and remains highly successful. It's therefore illustrative of how someone who, in commercial terms, was U2's contemporary, viewed a fellow superstar act.

I've no views on how the quote is formatted, and block-quoted simply to distinguish it from the mass of critical opinions. I think reinstating it simply to run on at the end of those would be a good compromise

best wishes Bruno BrunoMacDonald (talk) 15:19, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

I considered adding it into the prose, unblockquoted, but after reading it again, I can't say that it adds much to the article. Bon Jovi is effusive in his praise, but there isn't really any critical analysis of the album, so the only thing I could see the reader getting out of the quote is "Bon Jovi really likes this album."

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Module:Baseball color/data. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
Please discuss this at WT:BASEBALL instead of repeatedly reverting. Thanks.Bagumba (talk) 20:42, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Song For Someone Genre[edit]

What's the deal with the genre for Song For Someone? You listed sources that were "weak," can you find me something that can support your claim. For example, in the Miracle of Joey Ramone wikipedia the genre has a strong credible source. So I'm wondering if you can do that for Song for Someone instead of just reverting and assuming that weak sources can support such a claim or what you think/hear.

Mariano Rivera[edit]

Can you please explain the logic behind your action? Just calling a contribution inconsequential without giving any satisfactory reasons is unacceptable. My reasons for the addition? Rivera is one of the most successful Yankees players of all time who just happens to also love soccer. The Yankees are co-owners of New York City FC. Becoming NYCFC's first-ever season ticketholder is an obvious endorsement of another Yankees investment and an addition to the marketing campaign. Your action would be justified had he done it without fanfare, but it was announced at a press conference instead. Also don't see much of a difference between this and mentioning Andy Rooney as a longtime New York Football Giants season ticketholder or Tallulah Bankhead loving her New York Baseball Giants. These are my reasons. Looking forward to reading yours. The Ink Daddy! (talk) 02:14, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

To me it seemed... less than notable because I could not find that many news sources that mentioned that Rivera was NYCFC's first ticket holder. That's not too say I didn't find sources that mentioned it, but it seemed to be lacking in coverage, enough so that I didn't think it was worth adding to the article.

Reversion of my edit on Currents (Tame Impala album)[edit]

Hi there, I was wondering why you undid this edit of mine, since you didn't leave an edit summary or a note on my talk page. I provided reliable sources for the genres, and the ones you have reverted to seem to have no sources whatsoever. There's no evidence on the talk page of a consensus having been reached by the community. If there are no sources behind the genres you reverted to, then WP:OR and WP:V are in question, and reliable sources should be provided. Let me know. Thanks, Amccann421 (talk) 00:10, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

If you read the article, you will see all 4 genres are sourced in the body of the article by many, many references. Your addition of psychedelic disco was not only misspelled but a made up genre based on a journalistic description. I don't see any reason to change the current version. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 00:21, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I just saw the sources myself. My mistake. I just expected the sources to be with the genres, not further down in the article. Amccann421 (talk) 00:31, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

The deaths of other people has nothing to do with the death of Prince. I have no idea why I would want to also read about the death of David Bowie if I'm reading about Prince.

U2 "Early Members"[edit]

Hey, I see we both disagree in some areas when it comes to the early members of the band U2. So I would like to reach out for a conclusion. The problem that I have or the piece that doesn't belong there is that there is a "past members" section. U2 doesn't equal pre U2. So therefore that past member section is eradicable. We should keep the "early members" in the members section, but let's be a bit specific. It says, "Pre-U2," keep that there but add in "The Hype" and "Feedback" afterwards. That doesn't make it vague anymore. Please be cooperative. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BeatlesMania64 (talkcontribs) 16:18, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

I find it disingenuous that we have a "Members" section in the article body that lists people that used to be in the band, but not the infobox. There should not be conflicting information given by these sections, and right now when I look at the infobox, I assume there were no prior members of the band. I completely understand the point about members who were in the band prior to its being named U2, but canonically, the current band members consider the 1976-1978 history to be part of the same band. Thus, there is no reason to ignore in the infobox that there were previous members. I think you and I agree that McCormick, Evans, and Martin should not have nearly the same level of prominence as Bono, Edge, Clayton, and Mullen in the infobox due to their tenure and the fact that they preceded the U2 name. Which is why I see no harm in keeping a "see members section" link in the "previous members" parameter that takes you to the article body to explain. Just look at how The Beatles and Queen handle it.

2 things[edit]

Hello. On the Achtung Baby page, the Spin Magazine rating - it's just a square. what does it mean? I tried looking up their rating system with no luck. Maybe "positive" would suffice? And also I think the titling can be "Critical reception". I don't think that just means from "Critics". the readers polls could be spun off into "Accolades" even. --Jennica talk / contribs 22:23, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

The Spin magazine ratings at the time were stoplight colors - red, gold, green. These were usually given as a colored circled or the first letter of each review was set in a large font and colored the rating color. The "critical reception" sounds to me to refer specifically to music critics. I don't see why the exact wording recommended by the Album project guidelines needs to be used in this case.

Avoiding An Edit War![edit]

Hi, my reason is that the picture of the singer in question is simply Bono - there is nothing in the background to clearly indicate that he was performing at a concert venue or a television studio - It could even have been in a shopping mall like Tiffany in the 80s (probably not!)

Regards

Pam-javelin (talk) 07:32, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Except, he wasn't at a mall. He was in Cleveland, Ohio during the band's tour (why on Earth that matters, I have no idea). I personally viewed other photographs by the photographer from this concert and personally contacted him about using his photo in WikiCommons. So I would know that this is not from a mall or a studio. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 12:45, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

A bit obsessive with the photographer - maybe he should be worried! - (just joking) If you are clearly going to that level of investigation then I will accept what you state over the matter and will not revert it further.

keep up the good work!

Sarajevo (reprise)[edit]

So a few years ago I suggested we try to take U2 concert in Sarajevo to FA. Then I vanished for a few years so nothing really happened. But thankfully you didn't vanish, and since the 20th anniversary is later this year I thought it might be worthwhile to see if we can work it up to an FA status in time for a mainpage feature. What do you think? I'm incredibly rusty so I won't be able to get it there without your help. Melicans (talk, contributions) 17:52, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, I think that's a good idea. It's about time we pushed for some articles to get to the next level (e.g. The Joshua Tree, U2 Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky, Songs of Innocence (U2 album)). I think we should start by checking for any dead links in references. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:23, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
As you may see, I've also trying to give the main U2 article a good overhauling, since a lot of the prose is lacking detail or stale, has been uncited for a while, or is based on old references that are broken. I'm tackling one period at a time by working in my sandbox first. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 18:39, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
Hopefully there won't be too many dead links in the articles. I remember when I did a bunch of GAs that were stub/start five or six years ago I always tried to archive the links in case they went down at some point, and that went for some of the other articles too. Most of the ones at GA, or that are close to GA, probably aren't too far off the FA mark. Along with the ones you listed (by the way, great work on the SOI article!) War Tour, Love Is Blindness, Stay (Faraway, So Close!), Exit (U2 song), Moment of Surrender, and Running to Stand Still are all probably somewhere close to FA. There are 24 GA U2-related articles. At a quick skim I'd say at least 15, maybe even 20 of those, wouldn't take too much work to promote (based on what I remember of FA standards).

Hang on, what happened to Slug? Did someone finally act on their length complaints and get it deleted? Melicans (talk, contributions) 18:59, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
It's still here: Slug (song) Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:16, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
Oh, it isn't on the GA list in that link anymore. Did it get demoted? Melicans (talk, contributions) 19:26, 10 February 2017 (UTC) Oh wow, it got promoted? Awesome! That was always my biggest regret after leaving. I've gotta thank whoever took it through that. Melicans (talk, contributions) 19:29, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Looks like there are two dead links in the Sarajevo article; if Wayback doesn't have anything I'll look for some alternates. Melicans (talk, contributions) 03:59, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Congratulations![edit]

March 2017[edit]

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked for 24 hours from editing for edit warring and violating the three-revert rule, as you did at Animals (Pink Floyd album). Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may request an unblock by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text to the bottom of your talk page: {{unblock|reason=So let me see if I understand this: an IP editor—a sock puppet of a banned user, no less—kept adding information not supported by a reference to an article, I advised the user in edit summaries why I reverted, left user warnings on their page about 3RR and genrewarrioring.... and I'm getting banned? Don't you think it would have been behooved you to research this dispute before actually taking action, instead of after?}}.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 19:39, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Request reason:

So let me see if I understand this: an IP editor—a sock puppet of a banned user, no less—kept adding information not supported by a reference to an article, I advised the user in edit summaries why I reverted, left user warnings on their page about 3RR and genrewarrioring.... and I'm getting banned? Don't you think it would have been behooved you to research this dispute before actually taking action, instead of after?

Accept reason:

Editor was reverting a sock and edit summaries are far from blockable. NeilN talk to me 21:25, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Seriously, I cannot believe somebody who is capable of writing FAs would pick such a needless spat over something so trivial and inconsequential. What a disappointment. :-( Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 19:52, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

I can't believe you are resorting to such a desperate action when all you could have done was ban the sockpuppet. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 19:53, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
@Ritchie333: Do you mind if I unblock per the socking? --NeilN talk to me 20:56, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
I do mind actually, people should be commenting on the content, not the contributor (especially when the other party makes a valid point and supplies sources). Please address the personal attacks in the edit summaries first. I'd turn a blind eye to blocking if there'd been substantial work in these articles, but there's just been a silly edit war that has lit up several articles on my watchlist that I have spent substantial time improving. So I would like to see a comment about the incivility. FWIW I would decline that unblock request as WP:NOTTHEM. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 21:07, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
@Ritchie333: Please point out the uncivil edit summaries. --NeilN talk to me 21:11, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
@NeilN: Well, "it doesnt matter what you think, YOU are not a reliable source. Find one or dont add this" and "YOU are the only one that is that undoes my editions, so if you do not agree you are looking for an edition that is more appropriate and don't be envious, in vain you are not a wikipedia editor, work don't be lazy" aren't what I would describe as collegial. WP:AVOIDYOU has this pretty much covered. (See also the brilliant essay How to disagree by Paul Graham - all of his stuff is worth reading, particularly the stuff that talks about the Milgram experiment which may explain some admin behaviour). Civility is much more than Eric Corbett or Cassianto dropping the 'C' word. On their own, they just merit an "oy, out of order", but accompanied by silly edit warring makes a block necessary while I figure stuff out.
Also, Neil, the last time I pulled a cowboy unblock on an admin who disagreed with it (it was Sagaciousphil for those keeping score), I got hauled off to ANI and threatened to be desysopped. Don't let the same thing happen to you! I was very tempted to unblock Dr. Blofeld the other day, but I held out, saying "if I unblock you I'll be bollocked, yelled at being INVOLVED and maybe desysopped". (Obviously I am far too INVOLVED to ever take admin action on Blofeld, having done about 25 GA reviews with him). I'm not precious about blocks so I don't mind if somebody reverts them, but other admins take real exception to them. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 22:17, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
@Ritchie333: I think there's a significant difference between Sagaciousphil's block and this one. And the second, more objectionable diff, is actually from the sock. If you want to discuss this further my talk page is open. --NeilN talk to me 02:55, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Ritchie333, I don't think this is a fantastic block and I'm concerned you may be too close to the situation to act clearly as an admin. Your comment "there's just been a silly edit war that has lit up several articles on my watchlist that I have spent substantial time improving" (emphasis mine) and this recent discussion about the same cluster of articles give me pause that you are too wrapped up in these articles as an editor to be able to act as an admin. --Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 21:22, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
@Ponyo: I think there's been a bit of confusion, and I apologise for that. While I have been a fan of Pink Floyd for some decades and done substantial work on Atom Heart Mother in particular, I generally haven't touched most of the other album articles. I don't think I've ever made any contributions to the Animals article, and if I have, they'll be just minor gnoming stuff. To be honest, most of the Floyd work was in pretty good shape when I got hold of it, and it's only really David Gilmour and Nick Mason's articles that are stopping Floyd becoming a Good Topic. Why don't we put this behind us and work towards a common goal such as that? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 22:17, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

The Joshua Tree[edit]

Time to discuss the issue. - SummerPhDv2.0 21:20, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Dubious?[edit]

Unsure as to why you reverted my edit on Pumped Up Kicks and labeled it as dubious. There is a popularly accepted definition of what a one-hit wonder is and the song fits the category. Is the category of one-hit wonder not notable enough? What's the issue with this category tag? Eseress (talk) 05:00, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

The category itself is dubious and does not need to exist. See WP:OVERCAT, specifically about non-defining characteristics. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 05:22, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Alright. Feel free to delete it. Eseress (talk) 13:16, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

The Good Article Nominations Page Needs Your Help![edit]

GA candidate.svg

Good Articles: Music needs the help of willing reviewers!

Hi there. You nominated an article for evaluation against the good article criteria some time ago, but I noticed you have yet to review an article yourself. Although it's not mandatory, it would be helpful if every user who creates a nomination also reviewed at least one other article, as this would help clear the massive backlog. Reviewing someone else's article can also help you in the long run: every article reviewed brings yours one position closer to the top of the nominations list! If you worked on the article you nominated, chances are you're already familiar with the six good article criteria. It really isn't hard to review, and may take an experienced editor only a few hours to complete. If you have the time and would like to help, please click here, take a moment to figure out which article you'd like to review, then click on its (start review) button. Thank you for reading, and if you need assistance with your review at any point, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page and I'll respond to you as soon as I can. Homeostasis07 (talk)

U2 chronology[edit]

Thanks for this. Their discography gets really complicated in the late 1990s but that was from the easy part! ―Justin (koavf)TCM 16:29, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Very understandable - which is why I was curious about video releases (as well as fan-club exclusives). Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 16:30, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Craig Carton article[edit]

Thanks for your edits on Craig Carton. I too noticed the "newsy" tone, and was trying to fix it. (See my edits) I appreciate your efforts! The article is better because of your editing. I can't thank you enough! Juneau Mike (talk) 20:12, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Lego Island[edit]

Hey there, please be sure that this question is eleven years late and I guess you probably won't remember, but it's worth a shot: On 16 August 2006, you added the following dates to the Lego Island article: November 26, 1997 in North America and February 9, 1998 in Europe and Japan. The NA and EU have only been changed by 96.3.146.17 on 4 May 2008 to the ones we currently have in place still. The question here is: Do you recall where you got these dates from, or were sure that they were correct? Since we have just about no sources on the matter, I want to make sure we have at least the right info. Lordtobi () 21:22, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

@Y2kcrazyjoker4: I would really appreciate if you took the time to reply to my above question, pinging you as a reminder Face-wink.svg. Lordtobi () 20:14, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
Sorry I haven't replied yet. I honestly don't even remember adding that date to the article - if it came from somewhere, perhaps it was a review of the game from somewhere like IGN or Gamespot. That's the best I can think of, unfortunately. Y2Kcrazyjoker4 (talkcontributions) 21:10, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
Ah, shoot! I just happened to have found a source (press release from Mindscape) giving us September 26, that being our only sourcable date, it is now in the article. Thanks for trying to remember though! Face-smile.svg Lordtobi () 23:29, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Songs of Innocence (U2 album)[edit]

The article Songs of Innocence (U2 album) you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Songs of Innocence (U2 album) for things which need to be addressed.
