Could it be...[edit]

...that there are so few interested in record production, otherwise it would be great mixing some collaboration into the collaboration? My76Strat (talk) 00:21, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to introduce my new signature. Enjoy. 76Strat String da Broke da (talk) 23:15, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
I would suppose most are happy to look at wider projects like "albums" or "singles". Small record labels are obscure, take a lot of research and often end up deleted. Moreover we have a systemic failing in that companies absorbed into large companies often loose any individual existence on WP. This can be seen very well with the crass way all the (former) EMI labels were munged into one, both as category and as article entities. Rich Farmbrough, 01:11, 2 August 2012 (UTC).
I agree with you Rich and that is why I am committed to this project. We have some leverage to correct these shortfalls and that is what we are steadfast in doing. It won't happen overnight but I am confident it will happen. And we are making progress. I am happy that our membership has increased and we have some highly motivated and capable members. I just started the Member talk page and will ask all members to watchlist that page and be responsive when any member posts a comment or suggestion. I'll also do whatever I can to encourage members to bring their ideas forward. Collectively we can achieve some creative solutions to mitigate the adverse conditions that affect this topic. And I'm counting on you to help lead some of the efforts. I have some ideas, but I'd like to hear yours, and the others as well. Then we'll be well on our way. Best regards - 76Strat String da Broke da (talk) 04:47, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
I'd gently suggest that few people see much point in this project (founded in 2012) when there is an existing WP:WikiProject Professional sound production that has been going since 2006? In fact a formal merger might be sensible rather than duplicate effort. (talk) 00:57, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

HighBeam Research[edit]

H This user has access to HighBeam through The Wikipedia Library

I have been granted a 1 year access pass to information through HighBeam Research. To the extent possible I will use this access to assist users interested in record production, locating, at times hard to find sources. Requests can be published here or my talk page. Cheers - 76Strat String da Broke da (talk) 01:07, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Chemical Sound Studios[edit]

Over at Chemical Sound Studios, a former recording studio in Toronto, an anon keeps adding a list of bands which supposedly recorded there. [1] That list isn't even close to the list the studio itself has on its web site.[2]. The anon always comes in from the same IP block, but with a new address each time, so there's no way to reach them. They don't respond to edit comments or the talk page. I don't know enough about the subject to know if the info is correct or bogus. Advice? --John Nagle (talk) 05:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing this here for consideration. I'll certainly have a look endeavoring to bring stability into the flux. Ultimately the sensible guidelines for referencing content and a readers ability to verify the content remain dominate. Hopefully we can reach the user and resolve contentions through discourse, but it may deem itself necessary to semi-protect the article. I will post comments on the article's talk page after reviewing it, to seek input from interested contributors. There will be additional eyes involved with monitoring the page which will at minimum ensure disruption is addressed timely. Thank you again, for your diligence, and if you are at all interested, please join this project, which is a bit understaffed at present; plenty to do. Cheers. 76Strat String da Broke da (talk) 15:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Vital articles[edit]

There is a discussion occuring here regarding which music articles should be deemed vital to the Wikipedia project. Your input would be appreciated. GabeMc (talk|contribs) 22:18, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

We need to have everybody focus on doing a better job documenting important music executives and record producers that are active today. This will help to give the project a much better scope, making it more educational and enjoyable for readers. Zachtron (talk) 14:29, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Request for opinions[edit]

While this is not a formal RFC, some additional input would be welcome at Talk:Timbaland production discography. There's a little edit war going on about the benefits of a section that lists all singles again in that article. So far there's no real discussion but I don't see how blocks would be useful right now, so I've fully protected the page. If you feel inclined please weigh in at that talk page.

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 Record Production articles that would be affected by this action are these:

If you have objections related specifically to WikiProject Record Production'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.

At what level is a producer notable?[edit]

Lou Giordano has a lot of passing mentions as a producer, but I am not finding any substantive content about him or the impact of his work. How does WP:GNG / WP:MUSIC apply for prolific and seemingly respected but not actually discussed behind the scenes people? -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 05:36, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
