Possible sourceEdit

I found a source that may be useful for covering information about Lady Gaga's image

See: Simulacrum - It may be good to link to that age if you use the source WhisperToMe (talk) 04:11, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Main page imageEdit

Is it just my computer, or does the image of Lady Gaga on the main page stick outside the border? Is there a way to fix this? ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:01, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

It works fine for me, maybe its your screen width? โ€”IB [ Poke ] 15:03, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
Maybe. I won't worry about it if it's just how I see the main page on my computer. Thanks for replying. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:04, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Re: gifEdit

Can we please starting doing more of this? I loved seeing this moving in the "Perfect Illusion" article. ย  Like ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:23, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Pining uploader IndianBio for input. It's an interesting creation for sure, but we have to keep WP:NFCC in mind. Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:30, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
I did another in "Ray of Light" and will continue to do so as and when I see the need of it. Not every article would need it though. I feel "Bad Romance", "Telephone", the songs from Born This Way and "Applause" would need one. โ€”IB [ Poke ] 05:33, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable. I can definitely see how the animated gif used in "Ray of Light" is beneficial. Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:35, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
I, too, was wondering about WP:NFCC, but usually let folks more familiar with licensing and imagery worry about removing inappropriate content. ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:42, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
I love these GIFs! I'm totally in! GagaNutellatalk 01:31, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Featured content at other WikipediasEdit

Does anyone know if there are places where we can request to have quality Gaga articles at English Wikipedia translated and promoted at other Wikipedias? For example, Dope (Lady Gaga song) has also been promoted at Spanish Wikipedia, but not other languages. It would be nice if we could encourage other Wikipedias to promote Gaga content. Maybe the best strategy is just to ping editors who worked on promoting one article and see if they'd be willing to translate and promote others? ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:44, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

The Fame Monster = Good topic?Edit

Do project members think this good topic is ready? ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:45, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Surely yes, I am just going through all the articles and will update soon. "Alejandro" needs some work I can see and so does The Monster Ball Tour, but we should be ready soon. โ€”IB [ Poke ] 04:47, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Fantastic! I think you should have the pleasure of submitting the nomination. I assume you're interested and willing, but just say if not, I'm sure someone else would be up to the task. ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:08, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes I am interested, but I'm nitpicky haha. โ€”IB [ Poke ] 05:20, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
No problem! Just let us know when you decide to take the plunge! ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:26, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

IB, I think as long as all articles are still of quality status, there's no need for you to revisit each entry before submitting the nomination. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:38, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/The Fame Monster/archive1 is submitted for Good topic. โ€”IB [ Poke ] 07:49, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:18, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Just out of curiosity, how are "contributors" to the good topic determined? ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:32, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
It comes down to who helped work a topic's articles up to FL, FA, or GA. Snuggums (talk / edits) 21:34, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I promoted "Teeth" to GA status, but mostly I was just curious and adding my name is not necessary. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:05, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Congrats! ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:08, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Spanish and other languages?Edit

Are there any project members who speak languages other than English and would be willing to translate some of the project's Good articles and nominate them for similar status on other Wikipedias? ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:22, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

I personally cannot speak any other language fluently, but whoever does that will have quite a task to take on! Snuggums (talk / edits) 22:09, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Agreed, but at the same time, translating a Good article is much easier than starting a new one from scratch! I just think it'd be nice to see quality Gaga articles in other languages. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:10, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
I posted a note at the Lady Gaga project at Spanish Wikipedia to see if anyone is interested. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:55, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

TechHaus VolantisEdit

FYI, I posted requests at WikiProject Aviation and WikiProject Aircraft for assistance expanding and improving the TechHaus Volantis article, which is an unusual article for WikiProject Lady Gaga but one that's part of the proposed Artpop Good topic. I think getting help from editors more familiar with aircraft article standards would be helpful. We'll see if anyone is interested! ---Another Believer (Talk) 02:51, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Seeing that the article probably could not be expanded anymore, I'm actually willing to propose a merge with Artpop. โ€”IB [ Poke ] 04:16, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

A Star Is BornEdit

Saw the film over the weekend (which I loved!), and I've been listening to the soundtrack since. I've been working on the articles for "Shallow" and "I'll Never Love Again", and sharing a reminder here to update List of songs recorded by Lady Gaga here, too. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:11, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

The list is already updated and AB, "I'll Never Love Again" needs third party independent notability. Otherwise it fails WP:NSONGS. Lets hope there is some chart placements. โ€”IB [ Poke ] 12:57, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Wow, that was quick work! Thanks to ArturSik for updating the list. ---Another Believer (Talk) 13:01, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Notability should not be a problem. There's now a short article for "Always Remember Us This Way", too. ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:31, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

@Max24 and IndianBio: Thank you, both, for your work on "Maybe It's Time". I'm anxious to see if articles are developed for some of the other songs. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:00, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

"Why Did You Do That?" has third party notability. Just need to find out the chart peaks (I know it did chart in some countries). โ€”IB [ Poke ] 15:03, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
@IndianBio: Great! There's now a stub for expansion. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:16, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
Seems more songs from the soundtrack have charted. Perhaps Lady_Gaga_discography#Other_charted_songs needs to be updated? ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:38, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Lady Gaga's sixth studio album ("LG6")Edit

I've created Draft:Lady Gaga's sixth studio album as a space to add notes and content related to Gaga's upcoming album. Feel free to add if you feel inclined, thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:07, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Even Gaga has referred to the album by its working title "LG6", so I've moved the page to Draft:LG6. ---Another Believer (Talk) 01:48, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

Images in Joanne album articleEdit

Please see Talk:Joanne_(album)#Images to discuss which images are best for the Joanne article. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:16, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Showcasing quality Lady Gaga content across all Wikimedia projectsEdit

I've created Wikipedia:WikiProject Lady Gaga/Wikimedia to showcase quality Lady Gaga content across all Wikimedia project. Feel free to beautify and update appropriately. Would be great to see more articles promoted at various language editions of Wikipedia. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:56, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Brilliant! Thanks for doing this AB. โ€”IB [ Poke ] 18:27, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
Sure thing! I found all the current links by viewing the promoted Lady Gaga articles here at English Wikipedia. There may be a few promoted articles in other languages that are not promoted at ENWP, so be on the lookout and update the list as needed. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:37, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Something to keep in mind, User:Gabrielflorin01 has nominated "Applause" and "Million Reasons" at ro.Wikipedia, so the list may (hopefully!) need some updating soon. ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:29, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Reminder: Recent failed GA nomsEdit

Just a reminder, these GA noms were abandoned but could be re-nominated and promoted based on feedback received:

---Another Believer (Talk) 20:31, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

"Stupid Love"Edit

Starting a draft for "Stupid Love" at Draft:Stupid Love (Lady Gaga song). Improvements welcome! ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:40, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
