UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart listsEdit

What do you think of having both List of UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart number ones of 2010 and List of UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart number ones of the 2010s? It seems a bit redundant and against WP:CONTENTFORK. There's really no significant information that is provided in one that's not in the other. The general scheme seems to have the main UK albums and singles chart lists by decade and the genre charts by year, but none have both. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 18:00, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

I agree that they basically repeat the same information, so there's really no need to have both, especially for a chart as minor as the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart. I've just been reminding myself of when we had this exact same discussion back in ye olde days of 2012, and I'm afraid that I'm just as unsure of the correct solution now as I was back then. Both formats have advantages and disadvantages; I have no strong preference for either. A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 21:22, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Rail transport in Walt Disney Parks and Resorts featured list nominationEdit

About a week ago on the FLC page here: Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Rail transport in Walt Disney Parks and Resorts/archive1, you marked the comments you made there as resolved. I don't know if it's holding things up with the process or not, but you are still marked as opposing the nomination in your comments. If that is accurate and you are indeed still opposed to it, let me know of any additional fixes that you would like to see in the article and I will take care of it promptly. If you are satisfied with the article as it is currently, remove the opposed text from your comments and replace it with support when you have a moment, please. It looks like all I need is for someone to spot check my sources and one more supporter to push this nomination over the top. Jackdude101 (Talk) 01:27, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

List of deaths from drug overdose and intoxicationEdit

Hi there. Thanks again for helping me on this project. As you might have noticed, I've added the Es to your sandbox. I intend to work on this slowly but consistently, adding at least one letter myself per day. I anticipate the nomination will be closed (and likely not promoted) in the meantime, but that's no problem, I'll just renominate it again once we've finished working on it. I've also gone through and added the 'sfn' template to all the sources that have page numbers outside the references in your sandbox. Feel free to leave this part to me as this task goes on if you want.

Also be aware that in the arduous process of populating this list, my priority was finding a source that met WP:RS that supported that the person did indeed die of an overdose or acute intoxication. If said source happened to state it was an accident or suicide or otherwise, I would add this information in as I thought it was relevant. However, as this information did not originally have its own column, I rarely made efforts to track this information down on its own. So basically what I'm saying is what is in the table is an accurate reflection of what is in the sources provided, though I am sure that if a concerted effort was made to search for intent on every current 'unknown' person, I'm confident a significant portion could be found. I did put more effort into establishing which drugs were responsible in each case, so if each 'unspecified' person was searched for considerably less blanks would be filled in, though I'm sure some could definitely be found. I just thought since this information is being placed into separate columns now, and since you are helping, you should be completely aware of the article's shortfalls. Once we've finished building the new table, I'll consider searching for more in depth information on each candidate, and would be definitely keen to work on this if someone else such as yourself also pitched in, but no worries if that's too daunting, and of course I'm completely happy to just take one step at a time and see how we go. Also if you didn't notice there's a list of 34 'potential candidates' to add on the articles talk page. So I populated this entire list by going through 'Category:Drug-related deaths' and adding every single person in that category who met the criteria that I set for the article, and that I could find a source for. These 34 people meet the criteria, though reliable sources could not be found. However, as I added several hundred people to the article myself, I probably only put 20 minutes of searching into each person. So what I'm saying here is that with much more attention to detail I think sources for a handful of those 34 potential candidates could be found. Anyway that's a complete list of what I think could be improved on this article. Thanks again for your help and I'm really looking forward to finishing this new table with you. :) Freikorp (talk) 12:46, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

A to K is now done - half way there :). Freikorp (talk) 13:39, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
Hey, great work. For now, I say we just get the info into the new columns, then we can worry about editing any individual cells. I just did N, O, P and Q. I'll try to do more later. You mentioned earlier that you wanted to save space in the Ref. column, hence the use of Template:Sfn. One additional thing we could try is stacking the citation vertically rather than horizontally. I've done this in the sandbox, but it can always be undone. I also centralised the Born, Died and Age columns, just because I think that looks neater. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 20:59, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
Centralising the age column is a great idea, I think that looks much better due to how little room the age was taking up within the column. I think the born and died columns looked a bit neater before to be honest, but I'm happy with either way. Stacking the ref columns is certainly a much easier solution than the sfn template, I did consider that myself. I was leaning towards going through the (horrendously long) process of sfn purely because another reviewer did suggest it, so I thought I'd take care of it before the next reviewer brings it up again, but we can certainly stick with stacking for now. Also you may have noticed I took it upon myself to make use of the 'Notes' column to explain multiple drugs. Basically if there were three or more drugs found within the person's system I placed 'Multiple' within the 'Drug' column and then detailed what the drugs were in the 'Notes' column. See 'Adam Goldstein' for a good example. I think this is a good idea for two reasons. Firstly it ensures the 'Drug' column remain consistently fairly short - I think it's better to only have one column that is bunched up with heaps of information, and since the 'Notes' column frequently is anyway I'd like to keep it there. Secondly if there were nine of even three drugs causing the death it doesn't help to have them in the 'Drug' column because only whichever drug is listed first is going to be searchable. It will probably be more useful to the reader to group everyone together as 'Multiple', then they can look at the individual drugs manually. What do you think? Freikorp (talk) 02:50, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
Just finished R. I'm going on a bit of a holiday and anticipate having little or no time to edit between tomorrow morning (AEST) and next Wednesday night. Also just to let you know, 'undertermined' in the original list is not synonymous with 'unknown'. Anybody listed as 'undertermined' in the original list was officially certified as 'undertermined' by an autopsy. The term 'unknown' in the new list just indicates we have no indication at all. I've noticed you used the term 'undetermined' between N and P a lot for cases which should be listed as 'unknown'. I've fixed this, and I've reworded the final paragraph of the lead to explain the difference to readers. Let me know what you think. :) Freikorp (talk) 14:36, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
Apologies for my absence over the last couple of weeks – I've been kind of busy IRL. Once we've redone the entire table, we should probably go through it and make sure that you and I have been working to the same standard, e.g. the "Multiple" issue you mentioned above. There's also the question of which drugs should be plural (should it be "Barbiturate" or "Barbiturates", for example?). Plus we also need to decide which drugs need to be wikilinked. Also, notes that aren't complete sentences don't need full stops. A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 16:04, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
No worries, I've been pretty busy myself. So as you may have noticed I have finished adding 'T' so the entire list is in your sandbox now. I completely agree that we have to go through and make sure everything is consistent. I didn't realise that notes didn't need full stops, but now that I've consistently put them in everywhere, I'd rather just leave them in there unless you think that's a problem. I've consistenly made 'barbiturate', 'opiate' and 'sleeping pill' always a plural, mainly because I think it reads better. I've consistently made sure all instances where more than three drugs or types of drugs are mentioned it is listed as 'Multiple'. I see two outstanding issues. Firstly the wikilinking which you have mentioned. I think we should just stick to wikilinking the first instance of each drug only and leaving it at that. What do you think? The other issues is when two drugs are listed, which one should be listed first? For example I have made sure it is consistently always 'Cocaine and heroin' as opposed to 'Heroin and cocaine', but there are many other inconsistent mix-matches still remaining. The obvious solution is to just list both drugs in alphabetical order, however, I think this presents a problem. More often than not, one of the two drugs is alcohol. In drug overdose deaths, alcohol almost always plays a secondary factor. However if we list drugs alphabetically alcohol will almost always appear first, which I think will undervalue the more prevalent cause of death (being the other drug involved) when the table is sorted. What do you think? I'm starting to think we should list the drugs alphabetically, with the exception of alcohol, which will always be placed second. Freikorp (talk) 02:37, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
I've now made sure that only the first mention of each drug in the 'Drug(s)' column is wikilinked. The drugs mentioned in the 'Notes' column, however, are wikilinked all over the shop and in many cases multiple times. I'll try and sort this out later. Freikorp (talk) 04:53, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
I've now implemented all my above suggestions and as you probably noticed have moved the article over. We can, of course, keep working to improve it further, but at this stage I see no reason why it shouldn't go live. Thanks again for prompting me to do this. If you now support the nomination, please say so at the FLC, otherwise tell me what you think I still need to do. Freikorp (talk) 14:06, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Hi again. I've addressed all your final points in the FLC nomination. I understand you're obviously very busy IRL, but considering this, as you've stated you intend to support the nomination, if you have further concerns at the FLC is there any chance you could support the nomination now and just rest assured that I will address your concerns later? This article has been a pet project of mine for some time and I am not going to cease trying to improve it if it gets promoted, so I can assure you I will make any further improvements you suggest regardless of when you suggest them. I wouldn't ask you to do this if you were logging in regularly but I can't afford to wait another couple weeks after you log in next just to get a vote of support. I'm absolutely amazed the nomination hasn't already been closed due to stagnation. Freikorp (talk) 00:09, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

List of Airplay 100 number ones of the 2010sEdit

Hi there! I think you remember me from the past FLC for the article above. I wondered if you ever have time working with me on the article to renominate again? You gave an oppose and had some issues with the article, but what you still 'didn't like' about the page remained kind of unclear in the end. Mabye you have some spare time? In any case...   Best regards; Cartoon network freak (talk) 21:56, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi there. I'd be happy to help you improve the article in any way that I can.   As I said back in February, this was a particularly challenging list for you to choose to improve, as there seem to be very few third-party sources have been published about this chart, and, without them, this article runs the risk of violating WP:Original research.
Citing primary sources, such as the publisher of the chart, is fine for non-controversial facts (e.g. how the chart is compiled or what its number ones are), but ideally there would be more secondary sources in the References list. Un site de muzică seems like it should be okay, but you only cite weekly commentaries from them – have they published any articles or commentaries about the chart in general, or about the 2010s specifically? These would be particularly relevant for this article.
A lot of the lead (about 40%, in fact) is spent listing which singles spent the most weeks at number one. While it's fine to mention that "Don't Be Shy" and "Shape of You" have spent the most amount of time at the top, I really don't think it's necessary to mention, say, the song that spent the ninth-longest time at number one ("Happy") – that kind of info just seems a little indiscriminate to me. Most of this could be trimmed.
Only two sentences in the lead are cited. While I'm sure that everything else in the lead is true, the question is why it's being included. For example, you draw attention to how Smiley and Alex Velea replaced each other several times at the top of the chart during 2012 – why is this noteworthy? If you can find a third-party source that highlights this particular quirk then it would be okay to include it in the lead, but, without it, it comes across like something that you yourself find interesting, hence the original research concern.
I hope that this has been a help to you. Please don't be discouraged that the article wasn't promoted to FL this time. If I can assist in any other way, please let me know. Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 10:54, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much for re-writing the aspects of the article that still aren't on point. I will work on those as far as I can in the course of this or next week and notify you when I'm ready. Thank you again! Best; Cartoon network freak (talk) 12:27, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi there again! I trimmed the lead now to only contain important aspects presented in the article and added a new source in the lead's first sentence. I hope any WP:OR concern has been solved for now. As for Un site de muzica, it did not say anything about the chart apart from weekly chart reports, and there is sadly no such 'review' on the web (I did a research for nearly 45 minutes). Is there any other significant issue with the article apart from the ones named? Thank you again for your support! Cartoon network freak (talk) 21:24, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi again. The lead looks free from WP:OR concerns to me, which is obviously good. But I'm now a little concerned that it's a bit too short. I've made a few copy edits here – feel free to consider them at your own discretion. I've also added a few suggestions at the bottom for things that could be incorporated into the lead. If you want further inspiration, the closest articles that I've written to yours were these two – if any of the prose there seems like it could be adapted into your own list, please go ahead.

UK Singles Chart records and statisticsEdit

Hi. Your edit to UK Singles Chart records and statistics, while clearly well meant, added incorrect information to the article. All I Want For Christmas Is You has been re-entering the chart since downloads were allowed in the chart, not since streaming. However, I do believe that blip is worth a mention, so I've added some blurb I'd like your opinion on.--Launchballer 18:16, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

My problem with that blurb is that it's quickly going to become outdated. It's fine for now, but, when the Top 10 is inevitably filled with Christmas classics again this December only for them to drop out of the Top 200 in January, it'll be out of date. The blurb that I wrote was deliberately meant to be a bit more long-lasting. Maybe this is something that we can readdress at the start of next year.

We might have another entry on the list on Friday given how far 3 Lions has sunk in the midweeks.--Launchballer 19:04, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Apparently the OCC have doubled the number of streams that a song that's older than three years needs for the equivalent of one sale (see here), so maybe the Top 10 won't "inevitably" be filled with Christmas classics this December after all. I reckon we'll still get one or two in the Top 10 that will drop out of the Top 200 in January though, so we'll probably need to make a decision about what the blurb needs to say then.

Home media, formerly redirect, now DABEdit

Greetings! You created the page Home media which was a redirect to Home video. In connection with a dispute over the first sentence of Home video, I realized that Home media covers more than video, so I have changed it to a DAB with contents as you can examine. Do you disagree? And, might I ask you to weigh in at talk:Home video#First sentence? Thanks in advance for any reply. Jeh (talk) 08:10, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Jeh. I have no objections to your edits, so I won't seek to revert. One thing I will say is that obviously articles can't include links to DAB pages within their prose, so, if Home media is going to be a DAB page now, then the "It is a type of home media" sentence in Home video needs to be rewritten. There are a couple of other pages that still currently link to Home media. Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 17:01, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
I have never understood why linking to a DAB page in such a circumstance is such a bad idea. However I have done what I think WP:DAB recommends to "fix" it, and fixed the links from the other real pages (I'm not bothering with e.g. talk pages). (If there's such a simple workaround for the rule, why have it in the first place?) Jeh (talk) 21:49, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
But in any case, thank you for your response. Jeh (talk) 09:02, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Re:EllipsesEdit

If this form of ellipses is not welcomed at Wikipedia, you can move pages back. I was following Polish punctuation rules and the fact that it was welcomed at pl.wiki. Halfbricking (talk) 23:15, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

TFL notification – February 2019Edit

Hi, A Thousand Doors. I'm just posting to let you know that YouTube Awards – a list that you have been heavily involved with – has been chosen to appear on the Main Page as Today's featured list for February 18. The TFL blurb can be seen here. If you have any thoughts on the selection, please post them on my talk page or at TFL talk. Regards, Giants2008 (Talk) 02:19, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

If you want this to appear next year, that's fine, although it might be good to leave a blurb at WP:TFLS since I might forget the anniversary by January 2020. I'll schedule something else on Friday, when I fill the next available date. Giants2008 (Talk) 01:23, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I'll add a blurb at WP:TFLS. I was planning on doing so closer to the featured date (e.g. around September–October time), but I can add it earlier than that if you'd prefer. Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 09:41, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Romanian Radio Airplay ChartEdit

Hi! Would it be possible to add succession columns for the page above, as you did with List of Airplay 100 number ones of the 2010s? Many thanks! Cartoon network freak (talk) 22:31, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Sure, I'm happy to help you with that. We can do it together, or I can talk you through it, if you'd like. Is there anything about it that you're unsure of? Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 15:04, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
That is a lot of work actually, but didn't you do it back then with a bot or something? We can do it together if you'll tell me how (I know the standard procedure, but isn't there a method to do it faster?)  
No need to do it anymore. But thanks anway :) Cartoon network freak (talk) 15:33, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
No, there's no bot – it was just me and a lot of copy-pasting. If it would help you out, I'm more than willing add the succession column to List of Airplay 100 number ones of the 2010s as well. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 09:31, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
There'n no need anymore to do anything at the moment. I was just asking, but it seems like it isn't requested for FLC. But anyway, HUGE thanks for your willingness (is that a word?). Best regards;   Cartoon network freak (talk) 12:28, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Romania in the Eurovision Song ContestEdit

Hi there! I hope I'm not bothering, but I would very much appreciate some comments on my current FLC linked above . Just disregard if you're too busy at the moment. Many thanks and have yourself a good day   Cartoon network freak (talk) 07:23, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

I wanted to apologize. It seems odd to request a FLC review and then not being able to comment on yours, but my spare time is very limited now. I hope I'll get to if next week, otherwise know I'm busy. I'm really sorry... :( Greets; Cartoon network freak (talk) 18:13, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
