Band member timeline standards discussion at WikiProject Musicians[edit]

I wanted everyone here to know about the current discussion happening at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Musicians#Create Member Section/Timeline Standards that may put an end to all of the edit warring and inconsistency surround band member timelines. — DLManiac (talk) 06:50, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Courtney Love FA article nomination[edit]

Hello all, I have been working on the Courtney Love article over a number of years now, and it is currently a Featured Article nominee. I wanted to post here to see if any editors would potentially be interested in doing a review. So far, there are 2/2 reviews supporting it for FA, but I wanted to reach out to some other related WikiProjects to see if anyone would be interested or willing to participate in the review process. Given as divisive of a figure she is, it's been a bit difficult getting interest from editors, in spite of how high-traffic of an article it is. Thank you!

Wonder Stuff timeline[edit]

I've proposed adding a members timeline to the page for The Wonder Stuff. There don't seem to be many regular editors over there, so I'd appreciate it if anyone from the wider project could sanity-check it. I've put the proposed timeline on Talk:The Wonder Stuff.

In general I think membership timelines are useful for bands which have had a reasonable amount of membership change - I don't know if there's any policy on this? TSP (talk) 13:48, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Info prior to subject relevant?[edit]

Is info relevant although it is prior to the subject? I added info on Dallon Weekes stating why and when the he was recruited into the band, Panic! at the Disco. [1] Although referenced by in-line citations, a user is reverting the edits due to the info being prior to the subject's recruitment, to which he says is irrelevant to the subject due to the info being prior to is association with the group. Although it is prior to the subject's recruitment, it gives valid, referenced info of the reasons the subject was recruited. Nowhere is info prior to a subject's history with a group forbidden in an article page, especially when it is relevant to the topic.

Please comment on the current RfC here. Thank you. Sekyaw (talk) 22:09, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Greetings WikiProject Alternative music Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 17:51, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
