Piano burning[edit]

Does piano burning only involve uprights, or does it also include baby grands, and grand pianos? -- (talk) 06:35, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

First sentence includes "most commonly an upright" and section 3.1 includes "centred on a burning grand piano", so the question is answered in the article! Martin of Sheffield (talk) 09:16, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

New userbox created![edit]

I created a new userbox for the project! I have already done all the edits to the lists that list userboxes and on the userbox page itself. Plus, I have tested it and it works beautifully! --Xavier (talk) 06:58, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Piano burning needs eyes[edit]

Both the legends concerning the origins of its practice in the US and UK air forces are clearly designated as "legendary" in the article. In addition, the article states that there no evidence to suggest that descriptions of its origin have any historical authenticity four times, including in the lead. In my view (expressed on Talk:Piano burning), a complete account of the subject also requires an account of the two main legends surrounding the practice. This is standard practice in Wikipedia articles on everything from haunted castles to witchcraft to ancient Greek figures. Yet, two IPs ( and both tracing to Houston, Texas and undoubtedly the same person, have been repeatedly removing the accounts of the legends with no discussion or explanation whatsoever. In the process, they strand references, add inappropriate editorialising commentary, add statements before references which do not support the statements, and have repeatedly damaged the coherence and punctuation of the text. This article has few watchers. Could member here put some more eyes on it and/or add to the discussion I started on the talk page? Voceditenore (talk) 07:29, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
