Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WP:VG comments subpages cleanup[edit]

Hi, there is currently a discussion taking place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Video games#VG comments subpages regarding whether it would be acceptable to permanently shift all comments subpages associated with WP:VG articles into talk. This shift would follow the recommended approach given at WP:DCS. The WikiProject Hip Hop articles that would be affected by this action are these:

If you have objections related specifically to WikiProject Hip Hop's use of these subpages, please make this clear at the discussion so that other unrelated talk pages can be cleaned up where appropriate. Thank you. -Thibbs (talk) 15:56, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

New to Wikipedia and wishing to link up a new article to some old hip hop articles[edit]

I really am unsure how I am to go about this.

I wish to create another article on here but I have noticed that the subject is referenced in a few other articles and I wish to link these up.

I have looked over the help sections and creating pages but I dont wish to do anything wrong and make a mess.. I am hoping that some kind soul will see my need for help and point me in the right direction

this is for a hip hop article

thank you

Yoga (Janelle Monáe song) article[edit]

There is blanking of material going on at Yoga (Janelle Monáe song) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views), which I reverted. Perhaps one or more members from this WikiProject would be interested in seeing if some of the blanking is okay? Flyer22 (talk) 23:59, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

General advice on sources[edit]

I'm am trying to gauge the hip-hop world's response to R. L. Burnside's crossover material (late 90s to early 00s). Which sources could be reliable or representative? Vibe magazine is quite silent on the matter, and a search on the interesting database of Alexander Street Press returned the one thin ref by Roni Sarig. What other publications do you suggest searching for reviews etc? trespassers william (talk) 16:11, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

The Ice Cube article is all over the place[edit]

This article is all over the place.

Full disclosure is that I am not trolling. I am annoyed by this articles shortcomings, especially considering a blockbuster film about him was just released. If you go on, just take my words with you when you look at that article. I posted this here because it seemed like the best place to post.

Factually, I see no glaring problems, but then again, I don't know that much about Ice Cube. The real problem with this article is the structure. Facts and figures are repeated, placed in the wrong sub-sections, and the tables are labeled wrong.

Overall, it was a dilapidated piece of shit.

I know you editors and whatnot are dealing with all kinds of issues with running this place right now, what with governments and businesses spamming the editing capabilities of your articles, and the political issues you are constantly running into.

But this is Ice Cube, and a 6th grader could write a more coherent article than this. He is a celebrity, and a wiki article on that is not that complicated.

The worst part of all of this is that it was edited 6 hours before I viewed it.

Pathetic.

I'm a big fan of Wikipedia, but I don't edit it, because I don't want to ruin it for others by making a mistake that will spoil an article. In this situation, there were enough people who made these mistakes on the article (I'm guessing, unless the last editor was an idiot) that it completely fucked it up for me.

Bottom line here is, Wikipedia needs to get it's shit together to stop preventing so many amateurs from ruining the fluff pieces that Wikipedia should be able to nail. Also, somebody who is competent needs to take a look at the Ice Cube article.

The problem of course is that WP is written by 6th graders. And grannies. And rocket scientists. And bored welfare sponges. And professional writers. You never know who's going to edit any one article. The more pop-culture-oriented a subject is, the more it attracts edits from children and idiots.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  23:02, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Harjeet Singh aka prince[edit]

Dear hip hop enthusiasts: This page about a rapper has plenty of references, but I am not familiar with this genre. Are these reliable sources? The page will soon be deleted as a stale draft unless someone takes an interest in it.—Anne Delong (talk) 00:51, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

@Anne Delong: "Harjeet Singh aka prince" isn't a valid article title, and doesn't agree with the text anyway. It should end up at Harjeet Singh. It's not been deleted yet, as of mid-Oct. Some of the sources look bloggy, but many are reliable news outlets including the BBC. The number of national-level awards establishes notability, as does national news coverage of social and legal controversies involving him. Seems neutrally worded enough. Needs copyediting for weird spacing, lack of obvious wikilinks, and an empty table, but otherwise is good enough for WP:STUBhood, I would think. PS: I'm also not a regular hip hop editor; I'm just approaching this as I would an article on a fungus or a rocket or anything else.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  22:56, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, SMcCandlish. I was aware of the incorrect title, but I thought it was a waste of time to move it unless it was accepted. The reason that it is fairly neutral and hasn't been deleted is because I was pretty sure he was notable, so I did some fairly heavy editing myself to rewrite promotional text. I was hoping someone who edits these types of pages regularly would be able to pick out any fansites and forums that should be removed as references. I have accepted the draft.—Anne Delong (talk) 23:43, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Two problematic, deletion-target articles, from which something may be salvageable[edit]

Representation of black women in hip hop and Whiteness in hip hop were both obviously created as student assignments (one is explicitly tagged as such), and both were written as polemics advancing a pre-determined PoV thesis then defended with WP:CHERRYPICKING and WP:SYNTH (and just plain ranting). I think both, especially the first one, have enough WP:RS material that something can be salvaged from them, but they need a lot of work. I believe both would be deleted if taken to AfD in their present state, despite the cleanup work I've done on them (which is all I'm willing to do; I have many other fish to fry, and this outside my normal editing sphere). On the talk page of each, I've IDed what some of the problems are and how (IMO) the articles can be salvaged.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  22:48, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Updates for Jarret Myer[edit]

Hello! I posted a message on the Jarret Myer Talk page late last month suggesting a few updates to the article to improve accuracy, sourcing, and neutrality. Myer was the founder of hip hop label Rawkus Records, so I thought editors here might be interested in taking a look.

I prepared the edits on behalf of Myer and Uproxx, the company Myer founded, so I prefer not to make edits myself. I'm hoping someone here can review and make the changes if they seem reasonable.Thanks! Heatherer (talk) 16:18, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Red Bull BC One World Finals Italy 2015[edit]

Hi all, Red Bull BC One World Finals Italy 2015 could use some extra eyes. One user in particular, AdemirCedillos1, who has also gone by Ademiricedillos, has created a number of articles related to these breakdancing competitions. Another such is International B-Boy Championships, Red Bull BC One, and so on. Most of these articles are supported by primary sources, discussion forums, and things of that nature. I'm rather swamped right now and I can't do a whole lot to figure out whether these articles are notable or not, so I was hoping to get some help from the kind members of WikiProject Hip Hop. There are a lot of competition trees and other detail that seems excessive. I've also floated this by WikiProject Dance. I'm getting a really strong promotional vibe, cynic that I am. Two other articles, Undisputed World Bboy Series and 2014 Undisputed World Bboy Series were deleted as a result of AfDs.

Question on which name to use for article title[edit]

Okay, here's the question: I'm creating an article on Natalie Sims a.k.a Natalie Lauren f.k.a. Suzy Rock. Natalie Sims is her birth name, Natalie Lauren her current stage name. Normally, I'd just title the article Natalie Lauren, since that's the current stage name she's credited under on recordings, and probably the most prevalent in sources. However, as Natalie Sims, she has some very impressive song-writing credits, such as Iggy Azalea's The New Classic and Chris Brown's Royalty. My question is, which name is more notable? The most common name in sources is Natalie Lauren or Suzy Rock, but the most high profile name is Natalie Sims, since that's credited on songs such as "Work" and "Change Your Life".--3family6 (Talk to me | See what I have done) 21:44, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Frenchie (rapper) IP edits[edit]

I'd like to have some attention from Project Members, as well as Admins, for a recent issue that's been affecting the article "Frenchie (rapper)". Between 2013 and 2015, it was simply a redirect to 1017 Records. On 18 January 2016, I began to dedicate an entire article to itself. For some peculiar reason, starting in April there has been an abnormal amounts of IP edits, almost entirely cosmetic and non-constructive in nature. A lot of which, I attempted to fix (with reasoning) but time and time I've been reverted. To the point, where I've stopped editing/reverting, and have bought the issue to admins here: [1] (Archived link: [2]).

With little input from admins (possibly due to disinterest in article subject matter) and recommendation from one admin, I have also started a discussion on the "Talk:Frenchie (rapper)" where I have had no resolution, or cooperation from the involved user(s) just as was the case previously (when I had PM'd them). Instead its currently a log where I'm recording my issues with the various persisting edits w/o engaging in edit warring. I would like to receive cooperation and input from Project Members, and advise you to please check out the Talk Page. At this point, I'm considering if semi-protecting the article would be its best course of action. DA1 (talk) 20:08, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 22:30, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Hip hop/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Hip hop.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Hip hop, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
