IP 174.105.229.205Edit

There are a couple problems here. First, the two warnings are stale. The most recent is over a year old. That said, IMO they have evinced a pattern of disruptive editing that is enough for an immediate block. Secondly, you note that they are using multiple IP addresses which suggests the block is likely to be ineffective unless it's a rangeblock. I'd need a few of the other IPs to be able to gauge whether that would be possible. I took a look at the/24 range on this IP and didn't see anything outside of the specific IP that was likely connected. If we are talking about a handful of pages that are being routinely targeted I might consider protecting them. -Ad Orientem (talk) 01:13, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

@Ad Orientem: Yeah, they've used a variety of IP addresses, not all within 174.xxx.xxx.xxx. Last week they used 2607:FCC8:FA06:5700:FDFB:ADD5:5A39:7F66, and there have been others that are IPv6 as well. And there'd be far too many articles to protect, they're all country artists' pages and discography articles or whoever happens to chart on the country charts. Ss112 01:19, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

There is nothing in all Billboard chart history pagesEdit

hi! Ss112, Could you explain why is nothing in all Billboard chart history pages ?? Recently I found all artists's chart history disappear. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 114.26.153.24 (talk) 10:00, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

@114.26.153.24: We (meaning I and other users I've informed on Wikipedia talk:Record charts) don't know why. Billboard did this a few months ago too. It might have something to do with the paywall they've put up on their site. Ss112 15:38, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Okey,and now chart history pages have recovered ,thanks!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 114.26.167.92 (talk) 01:27, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
@114.26.167.92: Not fully, Billboard is still claiming another chart is being shown, for example Madonna's Billboard 200 chart history (https://www.billboard.com/music/madonna/chart-history/billboard-200) says it's the "Hot 100" chart at the top when it's clearly not, and clicking "More Chart History" at the bottom leads to Hot 100 peaks or whatever "HSI" (as shown in the URL) is/stands for. Ss112 01:30, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Could you check in the revision of 10,000 Hours (song)? Tim96144 ignored the hidden notes and added unsourced genre and saying "Add genre". 2402:1980:243:6419:3AC4:31FA:73DA:E50C (talk) 04:25, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Amaral reverted editEdit

I’m sorry for reverting your edit on the Amaral page! I didn’t mean anything shady by it, it just seemed like the quickest way to put the link back once I had gotten around to making the article. I don’t do that many edits to Wikipedia, so I don’t always know the right way of doing things, but I should have realised that it would come across as rude to ‘undo’ you. Sorry again! - Morgan The Professor (talk) 07:04, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Also I just noticed that the edit I reverted also undid the removal of brackets which you had to redo, so that was extra stupid of me. The Professor (talk) 07:13, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Quickly create song single/song articlesEdit

Just curious, is there some template/script that quickly fills the templates in for articles on songs/singles? I wanted to expand the redirects to Astroworld (album). Thanks, 💵Money💵emoji💵Talk💸Help out at CCI! 16:49, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

@Money emoji: None that I know of. Even if there were, I don't use scripts to edit and never have so I'd be quite uninformed in that department. Ss112 18:50, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Question about Billboard JapanEdit

Hi Ss112. I just created a new page over at Cyber (Japanese idol group). While I was able to find Oricon's weekly peak positions for each single, I couldn't find Billboard Japan's rankings, which is why they are blank right now. Would you happen to know where they are?   Ganbaruby!  (talk to me) 09:09, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

@Ganbaruby: The Japan Hot 100 can be found at http://www.billboard-japan.com/charts/detail?a=hot100, and you can select the chart dates (which mirror Oricon's) from the bar at the top. Of course, as Oricon's main charts don't take digital sales into account, you might find this group have not charted (with all the acts incorporated) on the all-format Japan Hot 100, as I've found with several acts I've gone looking for after having seen them on Oricon's charts. Also, I noticed there is no other group called Cyber (at least, with an article)—you could move the article to "Cyber (group)" if you wanted. Ss112 09:21, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. I looked through the lists and didn't find CY8ER in them, like you said. As for the article title, I think I'll keep it as is, since "group" is a little vague to disambituate .   Ganbaruby!  (talk to me) 20:20, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
@Ganbaruby: Per WP:NCMDAB, it will be moved sooner or later by somebody whether you do it or not. We don't add unnecessary descriptions like "American" to a disambiguator if there's no reason for it/our personal feelings on the matter/no other group with that name with an article.

2607:FCC8:FA06:5700:0:0:0:0/64Edit

Blocked x 1 month. -Ad Orientem (talk) 03:23, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

I went through the /64 contrib log and reverted all of their live edits. It was pretty much straight vandalism. -Ad Orientem (talk) 03:58, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
@Ad Orientem: Hey AO, a Spanish IP address (who's now used at least two unique ones) keeps coming back to spam me with gibberish and now Spanish insults because I asked for Memories (Maroon 5 song) to be protected and they're upset that they can't edit it. Is there anything you can do? Looks like they don't care that I reverted them multiple times yesterday asking them to not post here. Ss112 16:23, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
I blocked the most recent IP and the 88.5.45.0/24 range x 1 week. If this continues let me know and I will protect your page. -Ad Orientem (talk) 16:42, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Story of MeEdit

Hey! I was wondering, is it possible to do a chart section on Story of Me? Like the chart section on Thank U, Next, for example? – DarkGlow (talk) 18:21, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

@DarkGlow: Yep, done. Ss112 18:30, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
I wasn't 100% sure if it could be done considering it didn't chart on the mainstream charts, so thank you! – DarkGlow (talk) 18:34, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Monitor LatinoEdit

Hello,

So I have encountered several chart positions under the Monitor Latino umbrella, I have seen on wiki template single charts the ones that are okay to use are the Colombia, Venezuela and mexico ones. Nevertheless, how about other countries such as Paraguay, Argentina, Panama and others? On the same note, are their year-end-lists reliable? I'm asking you as you are always editing charts and top postions so you many be more familiar with this matter.

Cheers, MarioSoulTruthFan (talk) 10:02, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

@MarioSoulTruthFan: Well, I see that WP:OKAYCHARTS does point out Monitor Latino's Mexican charts are allowed, but I don't see why this wouldn't apply to all charts Monitor Latino publishes. If the chart for Mexico published by Monitor Latino is acceptable to use, I assume the rest are too, and I've yet to see a compelling reason as to why not. While I don't personally add or really take much notice of the Latin American charts Monitor Latino publishes, and I think their use is sloppy across most chart articles, I haven't seen any real objections to their use. Ss112 14:50, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply and the info. I do agree with you. MarioSoulTruthFan (talk) 23:49, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

WP:RM/TR requestsEdit

Howdy,

I did the page swap of The Dream Chapter: MAGICThe Dream Chapter: Magic at your request, but you do realize you have page mover rights too right? You can do exactly what I did with a script like this one: User:Andy M. Wang/pageswapIVORK Talk 07:46, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

@IVORK: I know how to conduct a page swap, as I do it myself when I'm not involved, but given past incidents I have witnessed in the music sphere of Wikipedia, it is considered improper for a user to move pages if they have created them themselves. I am sure there are certain users who would object to my moving their redirect out of the way if I had just started an article myself. So I ask an admin or request at RM/TR to have it "approved" per se. Regardless, thank you for moving the page. Ss112 07:54, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
No worries, a decent fair point for sure — IVORK Talk 08:01, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

75.118.34.55Edit

Sorry, CUs can't run checks on IPs. We are dependent on behavioral evidence. -Ad Orientem (talk) 04:21, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

@Ad Orientem: I thought they do run checks on IPs, but just do not disclose the results because they don't want to tie an IP address to an editor for privacy reasons? Ss112 04:24, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
In my experience CUs don't run requested checks on specific IPs. W/o some idea of who they are supposed to be it would look like a fishing expedition. And if we have an idea of who they are then they couldn't act w/o compromising the user's IP which is a no no. -Ad Orientem (talk) 04:32, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

"I Feel Love"Edit

Is an promo single.. HengeBoy (talk) 16:01, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

@HengeBoy: Promo for what, exactly? Ss112 16:10, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
For the upcoming album that soon to be announced in the coming weeks and also part of an two month campaign for Target, it’s not even being sent to radio or least getting pushed HengeBoy (talk) 16:33, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
@HengeBoy: You don't know an album is going to be announced; nobody does, as there has been no news of this. There's also no confirmation of it being on this album you're referring to. It's too early to say if it's going to be pushed to radio or not. Most of the time, radio releases are not announced the day the song is released. Please take these concerns to Talk:I Feel Love and make sure to back up what you're saying with sources. Thank you. Ss112 16:36, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
The covers are literally like the DWAS & HDYS covers.. it’s gonna be in the album, HDYS is still being heavily pushed on Radio and other streaming platforms and it’s not in Spotify’s TTH playlist right now, it really not going to be sent to radio.. - HengeBoy (talk) 17:00, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
@HengeBoy: That's literally speculation. Please discuss it at Talk:I Feel Love, as you're not convincing me of anything here. Thank you. Ss112 17:03, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
Ok, as you can see from it’s charting it’s a promo single.. it literally hasn’t been pushed at all in Spotify or in radio HengeBoy (talk) 03:21, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
@HengeBoy: I just said above I'm not convinced. Either go to the article talk page about it or don't. There is no point in attempting to continue this conversation here. Ss112 06:02, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

Zoo (Russ album)Edit

Hi, don't know if you'd be interested in adding the chart box to this new article. If not i'll have a go at it, regards Atlantic306 (talk) 20:53, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

@Atlantic306: Just added it! Ss112 21:24, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Giorgio MoroderEdit

I agree with your revert on the more recent work, but overall the article has a lot of puffery, which is where I was coming from. The article is a bit listly, treats the new stuff with equal weight as the old stuff, and don't think it does justice to such a seminal composer/producer. Anyway, thats my take.
