One More ChanceEdit

I didn’t add them. They were already there. Smokiewight (talk) 17:35, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

@Smokiewight: I'm not sure I understand, maybe you didn't mean it, but this is your edit. --Muhandes (talk) 19:23, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

No. It’s common knowledge El DeBarge got some of that publishing when his song “Stay with Me” was sampled from it. Smokiewight (talk) 23:02, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

@Smokiewight: Surely WP:V applies even when something is "common knowledge", don't you think? --Muhandes (talk) 12:57, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Not really. Lots of songwriters,I have seen do not have a citation next to any of their names. And you are the only one that took it off. Sounds like an obsession,don’t YOU thnk? Smokiewight (talk) 19:01, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

@Smokiewight: ad hominem much? Whatever, please just follow WP:V and don't add material without a reliable source. --Muhandes (talk) 19:11, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Nobody else has. Why should I? And trust me,big dog, if I ad hominem you,you would definitely know. Good day to you and don’t message me again. Smokiewight (talk) 21:37, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Per your request I am not pinging you, so if you read this it is not because I "messaged" you. I need to warn you that if you ever plan to carry out that threat, it will not be tolerated. Also, if you continue to add unsourced material, it may be reverted. That's how Wikipedia works and I'm not the first to point this out to you. On the other hand, unlike you, I do invite you to engage in communication in the future, in case you have any questions and you plan to remain civil. --Muhandes (talk) 07:11, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

Threat? What threat? I don’t even know you,nor what you look like. I merely ask you don’t message me again because I’m not gonna keep on going back and forth and I have better things to do. I know how this site works,no matter who points out what to me. You’re the one taking this personal. I’m cool,despite what you make of me. Civility is fine with me. As long as you do the same. Ok? Ok. Smokiewight (talk) 07:37, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

Double Lz and alleged nameEdit

Hey there; I've been trying to find a source for Double Lz and his name for some time now. While continuing to try to find it, I found this [1], which names Bandokay and Double Lz (allegedly) by their real names as composers.

Do you think this would be applicable as a reference to his name or would it be considered SYNTH? I'm leaning towards the former currently, though I'm not so sure whether or not it would be SYNTH. Hwqaksd (talk) 16:47, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

@Hwqaksd: I'm not sure how the thought process goes. Where does this source say that Bandokay and Double Lz are Andre Deer and Kemani Duggan? The former are the artists, the latter are the composers. --Muhandes (talk) 17:06, 14 April 2022 (UTC)
Because Bandokay and Kemani Duggan are the same person (per [2]) and they are listed as artist and composer in the source, respectively, wouldn't it make sense to assume that Double Lz's name is Andre Deer? Hwqaksd (talk) 19:01, 14 April 2022 (UTC)
@Hwqaksd: It could just as well be a third person. I think the wall between SYNTH and COMMON is a little higher than this. For example if you would have found a source saying Bandokay and Double Lz are the composers, and then this source saying Deer and Duggan are the composers, and a third source saying Bandokay is Duggan, the conceivably, you could use COMMON to say Double Lz is Deer. At least that would be my logic. --Muhandes (talk) 19:18, 14 April 2022 (UTC)
@Muhandes: I could see where Andre Deer could be a third person; I should note that there is an article from the Evening Standard ([3]) that notes Andre Deer as a "member of his [Bandokay's] rap collective". Whether this refers to OFB as a whole or the trio, I don't know - if this refers to the trio, then we can assume that Andre Deer is Double Lz (as we have the names for Bandokay and SJ, through the above The Guardian article and [4]).
In the case this refers to the group, I'll try to find something along the lines of the first source you mentioned. Hwqaksd (talk) 19:41, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

DYK for Geko (rapper)Edit

 On 29 April 2022, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Geko (rapper), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Mancunian rapper Geko was signed to UK music collective USG at the age of 13, becoming their youngest member? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Geko (rapper). You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Geko (rapper)), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Yay, my 50th DTK. --Muhandes (talk) 07:54, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

Certyear required for all instances of Australia Template:Certification Table EntryEdit

Hi. I'd appreciate in future if you let me know on my talk page that I've accidentally removed something that should be present, like that certyear= is still required to be present instead of having to find out because you edited the page later. I understand you've expressed reluctance to post on my talk page in the past because of the bold message, but as it states, that is intended for template notices, queries and editors asking me to help them out, not just simply informing me of something I've done. I believed keeping certyear= there would override using id=. Thanks. Ss112 15:29, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

@Ss112: No problem, I'd be happy to. As a matter of fact I forgot about that talk page message thing. I was just doing my weekly footnote correction and I didn't think you would find this information useful, but I will try to let you know in person in the future. As you probably figured out, the parameter |certyear= is required to determine the footnote type. Happy editing! --Muhandes (talk) 16:39, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

Help with a certification tableEdit

Hi Muhandes. Could you advise what is the best way to handle this certification table? Wings' BPI Gold certification was announced today, but I'm unsure how to add that since the tables are combined (I don't think they should be) and I can't add another cert template in the row. Or, if you have the time, could you fix it? -- Carlobunnie (talk) 03:36, 7 May 2022 (UTC)

@Carlobunnie: I agree that the tables should not be combined so I broke them into two tables. I don't see the BPI Gold certification in the database so I can't add it, but it can be done easily once it is out. --Muhandes (talk) 17:29, 7 May 2022 (UTC)
Just saw it, thank you! Wrt Wings, I cited the announcement tweet for the cert as a temp ref until the BPI site updates, and included a note for it to be removed then. -- Carlobunnie (talk) 18:10, 7 May 2022 (UTC)
