Removed category?Edit

I’m a little bit confused. Why did you remove the category on the redirect of The Lorax Singers? CheatCodes4ever (talk) 06:28, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

That category doesn’t exist, there’s no mention of the band in the Lorax artice. They’re fictional and aren’t even close to notable. Truthfully, the redirect should be deleted. I wish you could get a grasp of the notability requirements. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 06:54, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

Oh. I wasn’t saying it was notable. I didn’t know the category was fake. But the reason the redirect exists is probably cause they have several streams of their songs on Spotify. That isn’t notable, though, so I guess there is no reason. You are right about how there is no band mention in the page it redirects to. It could redirect to the Soundtrack section, because that’s close, as a lot of the songs on iTunes often say “(feat. The Lorax Singers)” but it dosen’t say that on the articles. So it probably should be deleted. CheatCodes4ever (talk) 09:04, 3 January 2020 (UTC)


For your revert on the redirect of Bing Bong Zoo, I understand what you mean. I didn’t know that redirects didn’t have that. CheatCodes4ever (talk) 09:05, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

All Aboard the SkylarkEdit

Can you please indicate the areas which you feel require references on the article All Aboard the Skylark for you to remove the refimprove tag that you added. (talk) 20:09, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

@ When I added the tag, the article was a stub. It has since been expanded with additional references, so the tag can be removed. Thanks. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 22:06, 19 January 2020 (UTC)


Thankyou for the edits you've made on All That Jazz (Breathe album) and related pages. I appreciate your guidance. Is there anyway I can ask you a couple of specific style-related questions? ICT7 (talk) 10:31, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Suggested edit summaryEdit

I know why you made this edit but if you're planning on making more, I'd like to give a friendly suggestion to explain why in the edit summary, as not everyone knows that they editorial staff of AMG give out the star ratings and not the reviewers. Alternately, you could of course reword it but that's more overhead. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 01:16, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

It looks like you made that edit. I've made edits in which I simply remove the rating when I come across them and note it in the edit summary (some but not all the time), as I did here. Thanks. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 01:23, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

Thriller 25Edit

Hi There I'm Just Letting You Know That An User Called User talk: Messed Up The Tracks On Thriller 25. When I Went To Look At The Article The Track listing Is Weird. I'm Not Sure How To Fixed It. Thanks From JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 4:32, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Why did you remove category from The Firesign Theatre photo?Edit

The corresponding photo of Monty Python is categorized under Monty Python. Why do you think this is improper? JustinTime55 (talk) 15:26, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Noel Hill (musician)Edit

Is there any specific section that you think needs sources? I can take a look then. The Banner talk 18:41, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi. I really didn't look through the article. I just removed a duplicate {{more footnotes needed}} template. Thanks. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 19:16, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

"Bow Wow's Untitled Seventh Studio album" listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Bow Wow's Untitled Seventh Studio album. Since you had some involvement with the Bow Wow's Untitled Seventh Studio album redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you wish to do so. Regards, SONIC678 19:09, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Snarky LiveEdit

Thanx for correcting my misnaming Snarky Puppy's live album. I have to ask, though, why did you put in a redirect page rather than just correcting the name on the Snarky Puppy page? I did so and tagged the redirect for speedy deletion. GWFrog (talk) 21:42, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

@GWFrog: I didn’t just create a new page at the new title, I moved the article using Wikipedia’s tools that allow me to do so. This way the article’s history remains intact (so the article at the new title still shows you as the creator of it). When using those tools, it automatically redirects the previous title to the current one. Thanks. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 22:00, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

The Very Best of KissEdit

I Need Some Help On The Very Best of Kiss I Try To Upload A New AllMusic Review, Rolling Stone Review And Sputnikmusic And Its Looks Weird. Can You Please Fixed The Review. Thanks From JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 7:14, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

@JukeboxMan1990: I fixed it. You’ll have to tell me why you capitalize every word in your sentences. Now that looks weird. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 14:13, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Hello. For the record, I had to move Atkins (album) to a separate draft article for it. I am currently looking for sources about the album. Thanks. --TheLennyGriffinFan1994 (talk) 22:11, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Removing categories when you redirectEdit

E.g. Why are you removing the categories when you redirect these album articles? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 02:04, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

Because they don’t need to be there when the only info about it is a listing with zero prose. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 03:09, 25 April 2020 (UTC)


Hello Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars

Never mind i did fixed it. Can you please add disc 2 track listings? and the running time is 1:18:50 for disc 2 for the 40 (Foreigner album)

Thanks From JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 8:28 27 April 2020 (UTC)

@JukeboxMan1990: I’ll do some fixes but I won’t add the disc 2 track listing. You can do that yourself. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 15:01, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

It's a Jungle?Edit

Whats with you removing all of the chart information I added to It's a Jungle? You know how long it took me to find, organize, and cite all of that? The info lasted for a little over a month before you somehow found the dead page and removed it because "no radio station charts". I figured given that the song had an MTV music video created for it (for some reason you also removed the MTV part from the page) that got lots of screenplay it had to have been a hit even though Billboard's Hot 100 wrote it off. I sought out to find some charts and turned out to be correct, so I figured I'd add them to the page. But nope, for some reason adding airplay charts for singles is not allowed according to you. Trying to be helpful by adding new information to the site is a bad thing. All those hours I spent searching for that stuff and formatting it correctly into charts went down the drain. You also removed some of my citations because they apparently weren't reliable, and added Citation Needed in a few spots. The information there is factual, and it isn't my fault that the only way to prove it is through an eBay listing. Like I said, I searched for many hours and that just turned out to be the only source for the info. I highly doubt you know anything deep about Three Dog Night's history, and you've even had the audacity to make many nonsensical/useless edits on other articles about the band.

Just curious about your thought process and reasoning.Tine Crine (talk) 01:13, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

@Tine Crine: Hey, I appreciate you reaching out. Of course, there can always be misunderstandings on WP policies. I’m sorry that you feel that I may have crossed the line in my interpretation of them. The good thing is there are many passionate editors of music articles like yourself who will objectively review your concerns at the WikiProject Albums talk page. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 06:25, 6 May 2020 (UTC)


A user called User talk:JJMC89 have been removing the album cover from a Wikipedia page called Look of Love: The Very Best of ABC he keeps on removing the album cover. I'm not sure what to do, he could be a bot.

Thanks from JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 9:57 8 May 2020 (UTC)

@JukeboxMan1990: Truthfully, Ben, all the information about the Gold should be removed including the extra cover because there are no sources that call it a “reissue”. It just doesn’t matter. I’ll fix it later. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 15:08, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

Category:Jhené Aiko album coversEdit

Hi – would you mind taking a quick look at this category and fixing the entry, please? It should be a filename, rather than a picture, but I can't see how to correct this. Thanks. Richard3120 (talk) 15:46, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

  Done. See Template:No gallery. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 16:01, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

List of Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles of 2020: premature addition of artist imagesEdit

[1] clearly is showing this. I have removed the images, with the explanation that they are not added to the article until the year is complete ([2]). Though I don't know about any specific guideline to this effect, I am remembering this from past years and wanting to respect it. MPFitz1968 (talk) 15:46, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

Ericorbit used to police that in the past before he disappeared from WP. I don't think there's a guideline but there may be some consensus for it somewhere. It could lead to too many photos as people would keep adding them as the year progresses, when it should be reflective of the year as a whole. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 16:05, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

The VinylsEdit

I've stated my views on the template at TfD... the creator has also created a category for those draft albums at Category:The Vinyls albums... can this be speedily deleted? Richard3120 (talk) 20:56, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for spotting that. I didn't even notice. We can disable the categories per WP:DRAFTS, which would empty the category and make it eligible for speedy deletion. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 22:04, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

iTunes and Gold CDEdit

When I import The Jam Gold CD to Itunes, the CD lookup results comes up with two options saying The Sound of the Jam and Gold. Is iTunes right about The Sound of The Jam and Gold are both the same albums or is the CD lookup results from iTunes are wrong? I'm just wondering because i notice some albums have been re-issued as Gold. Is it possible to add the Gold information back to The Sound of the Jam or not?

Thanks from JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 3:11 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Ben. Unless a reliable source specifically mentions that a release with a different title is a re-issue of an earlier album, there is no need for that information in the article. And even if there is a known re-issue, a image of the cover photo of it is not always necessary, especially if the artwork is the same. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 17:52, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

@Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars Thanks for your comment and about the iTunes lookup results I mentioned above. From JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 4:08 May 2020 (UTC)

Good afternoon Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars

Villain (Album) and Villain (album)Edit

Is this where you were trying to get to with these two redirects? I had the pageswap reversed. Not sure why it was done in the first place, possibly a mistake and some crossed wires. Villain (Album) could possibly be deleted entirely, it adds nothing. Lithopsian (talk) 20:28, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

... bound for New Orleans?Edit

Hi User:Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars, I think Talk:Waitin' for the Bus / Jesus Just Left Chicago might also need a redirect? Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 20:56, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, that was me that added the WikiProjects – I've added redirects now. Richard3120 (talk) 21:41, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

The Sound of the JamEdit

Good Afternoon Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars

I'm just wondering if I can add disc 2 to The Sound of the Jam because it's been mentioned on the article. I just wanted to check with you to see if that is okay before i add the second disc with the track listings?

Thanks so much from JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 9:43 21 May 2020 (UTC)

@JukeboxMan1990: Yes. It doesn't add to or take away from its notability, but it can be added. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 16:04, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars: all done you may go and check to see if i did it right?

JukeboxMan1990 (talk) 9:05 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Ben. Can you stop contacting me? All it’s going to do is lead to a block because I know you’re just evading your previous blocks when you created your new account. The only reason I didn’t spot it right away is because you stopped editing Essential albums. Now, you just edit Gold albums. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 12:13, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Country albums categoryEdit

Hello. Can you please clarify why you are continually removing the category, "Country albums by American artists" from album pages? ChrisTofu11961 (talk) 15:06, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

@ChrisTofu11961: Because it is unnecessary when a parent category of the page, such as Category:Bill Anderson (singer) albums is already categorized under Category:Country albums by American artists. That means those pages are being categorized twice resulting in overcategorization. Thanks. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 16:13, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
@Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars: That makes sense. I did not originally see that before. Thanks for checking! ChrisTofu11961 (talk) 18:13, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

List of UK Dance Singles Chart number onesEdit

What I would argue is this. The articles for charts in 1988 it seems have been deleted because the charts were not compiled by the Official Charts Company (OCC). However, what I would say is this: As an example, the The Official Big Top 40 is not compiled by the Official Charts Company, and therefore having the word "official" in the company name is by no means proof of de facto officiality, although OCC is clearly universally accepted as such by most people. Secondly, the deleted charts of 1988 were in fact compiled by the now defunct MRIB, who, were a rival to OCC (at the time called Gallup and then CIN) and were considered of equal importance and reliability to OCC. The OCC chart just so happened to be used by BBC Radio 1 and the now defunct Top of the Pops TV show. Pretty much every other TV and radio show of the day used the MRIB compiled singles chart. This may cause problems given that OCC is universally accepted as the "official" chart provider of the UK, however, I think on Wikipedia we have the opportunity to look into things in more detail and be more accurate. Also, I don't think OCC were compiling any rock or dance charts at this time, so MRIB's seem to be the accredited charts for them at the time. Cheers.

Billboard Rock/Alternative Albums chartsEdit

Hi – following the discussion regarding the reorganization of Billboard's Rock and Alternative Songs charts, the query has come up at Wikipedia talk:Record charts#Billboard charts - Albums as to whether the same applies to albums in these categories... the current documentation only accounts for R&B/Hip Hop album charts. Can you shed any light on this? Thanks. Richard3120 (talk) 23:20, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

@Richard3120: I'm aware of what you're referring to but I don't know how involved it would be. I'm sure we can treat Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums in the same way for Top Rock Albums as R&B and Rap Albums are for Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. I'm not sure about anything else, although there's the main album charts (Billboard 200, Top Album Sales, Top Current Albums), each of the latter two being a previous version of the Billboard 200 in terms of its methodology, which I think are interesting if nothing more. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 21:26, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
Me neither - I just wondered as you were involved in the discussion about the singles chart, you would have a better idea than I do about the album equivalents... I can talk about the UK charts and their history with some authority, but I admit I get completely lost with component charts for Billboard, which is why I stayed out of that discussion. Thanks anyway... I guess it needs to be changed soon, at least for the Rock and Alternative Albums charts so that people can add them to chart tables. Richard3120 (talk) 01:50, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Films vs. Film seriesEdit

Hey there, you probably should have mentioned that in the CFD. I think your rationale is reasonable although I don't think I've really seen it spelled out that way. Perhaps you'd want to propose a clearer delineation for film vs. film series at WT:CFD, perhaps as an WP:RFC? I think this might be a discussion about a wider naming guideline. If you feel like I have misrepresented the consensus and closed erroneously in the Sandlot discussion specifically, you're more than welcome to make a listing at WP:MR.
