Intel. Gaga.[edit]

Did you see about this project between Intel and Gaga for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards? I can't wait for her comeback!!! Read and watch. GagaNutellatalk 06:07, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:34, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Possible source[edit]

I found a source that may be useful for covering information about Lady Gaga's image

See: Simulacrum - It may be good to link to that age if you use the source WhisperToMe (talk) 04:11, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

AHS SEASON 6[edit]

OMG GUYS!!!![1]

What is that? —IB [ Poke ] 14:55, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
She confirmed her returning to the series during a radio interview. I don't think she will be the lead actress, bus just as support actress is great!!! GagaNutellatalk 15:07, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Phew, monitoring those articles are pretty time consuming. —IB [ Poke ] 15:19, 4 March 2016 (UTC)


I was hoping some WikiProject Television project members would be into AHS and work to promote these articles. Some of them probably wouldn't require too much work, but I am less familiar with episode articles and what they require. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:05, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

What I know is that the main things each episode articles require to be GA-worthy are plot, production, critical reception, and (if available) views upon release. The requirements are not quite as complex as the ones for film articles, but they have a similar premise. It would definitely be appreciated if the television WikiProject were to help with the articles. Snuggums (talk / edits) 23:10, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
Well none of them will work, they are all for working on the main season article. People like LLArrow specifically mentioned that they have no concern for the episode ones. —IB [ Poke ] 09:25, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

If Gaga does not appear in the episode "Chapter 1", should we still tag the talk page with WikiProject Lady Gaga? ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:43, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Just keep it to those she is actually involved in, whether it is appearing in them, directing them, producing them, writing them, or any combination of those. Snuggums (talk / edits) 15:47, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
So, I don't think she was involved with this episode, but I'm not 100% certain. I am fine with removing the WikiProject banner if we can determine that she was not involved. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:57, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
Update: IB removed the project banner. We can add back if we see that Gaga was somehow involved. ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:05, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

FWIW, Gaga actually appears in "Chapter 3". ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:28, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Record Sales[edit]

Hello everyone

I believe this page here needs updating, Gaga is only marked as having 114 million records sold when I believe this number is higher, however I'm not sure on the actual number. (talk) 17:57, 13 May 2016 (UTC)


I'm very proud of this team! Congratulations on our FT. Now, let's make Gaga a FA lol GagaNutellatalk 22:06, 2 August 2016 (UTC)


Joanne (Lady Gaga album): here we go...! ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:04, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Super Bowl LI halftime show[edit]

Should Super Bowl LI halftime show be redirected for now, or are there enough details to get an article started with background info, etc.? ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:08, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Given how Gaga's performance was only confirmed two days ago and much of it only announces her involvement, I'd say wait first and see what comes up before starting an article. Snuggums (talk / edits) 18:12, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
An anonymous user has started the article, but I didn't want to spend time expanding it without support from others, otherwise it would be a waste of time. I don't have a problem with waiting, though I imagine there is some information available, such as director, sponsor, headliner confirmation, other logistics, etc. ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:15, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Main page image[edit]

Is it just my computer, or does the image of Lady Gaga on the main page stick outside the border? Is there a way to fix this? ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:01, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

It works fine for me, maybe its your screen width? —IB [ Poke ] 15:03, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
Maybe. I won't worry about it if it's just how I see the main page on my computer. Thanks for replying. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:04, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 part of WikiProject Lady Gaga?[edit]

I tagged Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 as part of WikiProject Lady Gaga, but IndianBio said "compilations containing Gaga's recorded works are not part of the wikiproject". @IndianBio: I agreed with you at the time, when I thought this was just a studio compilation with one of Gaga's previously recorded songs. However, I believe this is actually a live album. Do you think we should add WikiProject Lady Gaga back, since that would make the track a unique recording? ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:16, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

@Another Believer: my answer is still no. Its Tony's live album and tribute special where Gaga had sang "La Vie en Rose". She has done it in many instances and her songs are present in many live and compilation recordings. That does not make it a part of the project. Because including such one-off recordings would be opening a whole can of worms. —IB [ Poke ] 05:42, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
OK, no worries. Just wanted to run the idea by you and other project members. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:45, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Including the song she recorded for that album is understandable, but not the album as a whole because she didn't contribute to all of its tracks. Snuggums (talk / edits) 15:05, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Re: gif[edit]

Can we please starting doing more of this? I loved seeing this moving in the "Perfect Illusion" article. 👍 Like ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:23, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Pining uploader IndianBio for input. It's an interesting creation for sure, but we have to keep WP:NFCC in mind. Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:30, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
I did another in "Ray of Light" and will continue to do so as and when I see the need of it. Not every article would need it though. I feel "Bad Romance", "Telephone", the songs from Born This Way and "Applause" would need one. —IB [ Poke ] 05:33, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable. I can definitely see how the animated gif used in "Ray of Light" is beneficial. Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:35, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
I, too, was wondering about WP:NFCC, but usually let folks more familiar with licensing and imagery worry about removing inappropriate content. ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:42, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
I love these GIFs! I'm totally in! GagaNutellatalk 01:31, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

"John Wayne"[edit]

Project members are welcome to assist with the expansion of John Wayne (song). Whether or not the song has been released as a single, there are sources on the article's talk page and even more coverage with the music video release. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:53, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Featured content at other Wikipedias[edit]

Does anyone know if there are places where we can request to have quality Gaga articles at English Wikipedia translated and promoted at other Wikipedias? For example, Dope (Lady Gaga song) has also been promoted at Spanish Wikipedia, but not other languages. It would be nice if we could encourage other Wikipedias to promote Gaga content. Maybe the best strategy is just to ping editors who worked on promoting one article and see if they'd be willing to translate and promote others? ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:44, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Picture for Million Reasons article[edit] Here's a performance picture for the Million Reasons article. Can anybody remove the watermark?

Las Vegas residency[edit]

I created Draft:Lady Gaga's Las Vegas residency for editors who want to start working on an article for Gaga's planned residency in Las Vegas. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:21, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

TFAR notice[edit]

The Fame Monster = Good topic?[edit]

Do project members think this good topic is ready? ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:45, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Surely yes, I am just going through all the articles and will update soon. "Alejandro" needs some work I can see and so does The Monster Ball Tour, but we should be ready soon. —IB [ Poke ] 04:47, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Fantastic! I think you should have the pleasure of submitting the nomination. I assume you're interested and willing, but just say if not, I'm sure someone else would be up to the task. ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:08, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes I am interested, but I'm nitpicky haha. —IB [ Poke ] 05:20, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
No problem! Just let us know when you decide to take the plunge! ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:26, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

IB, I think as long as all articles are still of quality status, there's no need for you to revisit each entry before submitting the nomination. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:38, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/The Fame Monster/archive1 is submitted for Good topic. —IB [ Poke ] 07:49, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:18, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Just out of curiosity, how are "contributors" to the good topic determined? ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:32, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
It comes down to who helped work a topic's articles up to FL, FA, or GA. Snuggums (talk / edits) 21:34, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I promoted "Teeth" to GA status, but mostly I was just curious and adding my name is not necessary. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:05, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Congrats! ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:08, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Today's featured article / Main Page appearance[edit]

Congrats and thanks to all who helped get the Lady Gaga article featured on the Main Page! ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:31, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Discussion at WikiProject Songs w/ Lady Gaga example[edit]

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:45, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
