Thank you for your help[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to say thank you for helping me with the article that I created for the article of the album A Gift & a Curse by Gunna. However, you forgot to redirect just one article for the last song, "Alright (Gunna song)". I just wanted to let you know and I appreciate the help! (talk) 15:10, 18 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ARIA Report[edit]

Hi, I spoke with User talk:CAMERAwMUSTACHE. He said you might know something about where one could access the post-2019 ARIA Reports? I'm not trying to source them or anything. Would just be interested in seeing them. ipodnano05 * leave@message 03:16, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ipodnano05: Unfortunately, there's no public archive of them. ARIA changed when the chart data was released to the public (it was delayed by several days) and decided to make them subscriber-only, disallowing the Pandora Archive from archiving them. You can ask the user bulion on, he may be willing to send them to you but four years' worth of reports might be a bit much to ask. Ss112 03:19, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh that's a huge ask. I wouldn't want to inconvenience anyone. But thank you very much for responding to my message. ipodnano05 * leave@message 01:51, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Eras Tour[edit]

Hi! I noticed you removed the bold in concert synopsis and I reverted it. I did not add the bold in the first place, but I thought it was good since it demarcates where the acts are in the prose. The acts were previously in a bullet point structure, but somebody else had converted it into a paragraph-style prose. I think we can break the rule here, as the bold helps in understanding the location of the acts, which form the whole point of the Eras Tour. ℛonherry 11:56, 10 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The article about Ell & Nikki was redirected by someone without discussion today. The duo won Eurovision 2011, and had an impact on the charts in Europe and an own stamp in their country. I question why this was redirected, I thought I asked you for an opinion.BabbaQ (talk) 07:42, 19 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@BabbaQ: If you dispute the redirect of the article, revert the user who performed it and tell them to nominate the article for deletion. That would be the best way to go. But if Ell & Nikki are known for making one song together, it probably makes more sense to redirect the article to their only song or leave it to where it points now.

Notification in de-WP[edit]

Hello, it seems like you did not receive my notification in the German Wikipedia. Could you please read this discussion (or just the small English part where I was asking you) about the new developments in this investigation and answer? Thanks. --Ali1610 (talk) 22:01, 19 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ali1610: Not sure I can help, as that was 2009 and I did not (and still do not) possess Kent's book. I only added the information then because I knew the information to be in it. I've stayed away from adding much information from Kent's book since. You could approach Tobyjamesaus or Nqr9 as I believe they own the book. Ss112 01:27, 20 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello Ss112!

  • The New Pages Patrol is currently struggling to keep up with the influx of new articles needing review. We could use a few extra hands to help.

File:Piri & Tommy - Froge.mp3.png[edit]

Hello. Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the mess. Secondly, is there a better name for the file? Such as File:Froge.mp3 by Piri & Tommy.png? It'll stop database reports from reading this file as one with a double extension. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 13:05, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Minorax: I didn't know that it was causing a database report. I think without the .mp3 is descriptive enough, so your initial move was fine. Ss112 13:11, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is this right?[edit]

You made a bunch of disruptive edits on Religiously (song).

I don't think your the kind of user to vandalize. Could you explain your edits? ItsCheck (talk) 03:14, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ItsCheck: Excuse me? There is nothing disruptive about any of my edits to that article. Rather, you should be explaining how any edits I made to that article (the last of which was four days ago, all adequately explained) were "disruptive" in the slightest.

Chart question[edit]

Hey, I’m not sure if you can answer this or not, but is this correct [1] I have never come across something like this. I noticed you had a confrontation with the user previously. Just seems confusing on including an album chart on a single chart. Pillowdelight (talk) 22:41, 30 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Pillowdelight: Yes, it is correct. Gaon allowed the "Butter" single on the album chart. It's not the only example of them allowing a "single" to chart on their album chart. Carlobunnie and I have had our differences but there's no issue here. Ss112 03:54, 31 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay just making sure, I’ve just never have come across anything like that before. Now I know. Pillowdelight (talk) 04:03, 31 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hopefully you’ll see this, but I opened up a discussion on The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill regarding the co/additional producers being removed from the infobox. If you’re able to could you please leave your opinion on the matter since you’re brilliant. Talk:The_Miseducation_of_Lauryn_Hill#Producer/writing_credits Pillowdelight (talk) 08:36, 2 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Pillowdelight: I know nothing about that situation, sorry. It looks like a matter of opinion that I'd rather not get involved in. That's just something you and the other user are going to have to resolve. Ss112 08:41, 2 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, that’s fine. Thank you though. Pillowdelight (talk) 08:44, 2 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That IP[edit]

After reviewing Special:Contributions/, I placed a three month anonblock on the range. ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 11:27, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Editor not understanding[edit]

I do not know what the range is for this, but the user User:2600:4040:2CA3:4F00:9D47:3D67:836D:EA39 is making incorrect edits on Travis Scott discography. They are adding more than 10 chart positions and crediting other artists when they are not explicitly credited for that album, and continued to make the same edits after being reverted, to which I have reverted again. I think this needs admin intervention and a small block, but I do not know who to go to. Thank you for listening. 2607:FB91:991:E96:48AA:412A:7B41:9080 (talk) 19:00, 13 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oliver Anthony charted singles[edit]

Hi! You put in his article the year 2022 against one of his singles (in the table). You’re referring to year of release, right? This is quite important, as Billboard is saying that he hadn’t had any chart history at all before the latest charts came out, and while I don’t doubt what they’re saying, some might misconstrue the table data when comparing it to the "no previous chart history" statement. I’m wondering if it could be made a bit clearer? Thanks! Boscaswell talk 04:44, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Boscaswell: Maybe a footnote at the top of the column to explain it means year of release would help explain it? Ss112 06:55, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ss112 I think that would work. Correction: that worked! Thanks. Boscaswell talk 07:32, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Short request[edit]

Sent you a mail if you're there. Lk95 (talk) 12:54, 31 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply][edit]

I suggest SPI. It's been too long since I've dealt with BC for me to be comfortable issuing a DUCK block. On a side note, I strongly suggest you disengage on their talk page. Nothing good is going to come of that. -Ad Orientem (talk) 02:44, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ad Orientem: I had no intention of replying further on their talk page. I opened an SPI (Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/BlaccCrab). I'd appreciate if you endorsed it by replying there, because these things can stay open for two weeks otherwise. Also, I think I laid out how this is a DUCK case at the SPI pretty clearly—you don't need to remember BlaccCrab to see it's them. Ss112 03:05, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For the record[edit]

Someone created your user page with "Please stop making unsourced edits. You alone do not get to determine what goes where." which obviously was meant to go here. I've tagged it with {{db-g6}}. CLYDE TALK TO ME/STUFF DONE 23:43, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ss112, I deleted your User page because it was clearly created by an inexperienced editor and not by you. But let me know if you want it restored. Liz Read! Talk! 00:56, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Seems as if this user is up to their same game they've been warned against. A clear case of WP:DUCK in their editing patterns and overall behaviour. livelikemusic (TALK!) 01:24, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Livelikemusic: Are you saying they're a sockpuppet of a blocked user? If so, I can't work out which one. Ss112 01:27, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not other than the IP edits they've made in the past, but they're continuing their editing behaviour which has been warned of them — removal of bonus tracks, artwork uploads, etc. It seems like this is going to become a major problem. 😕 livelikemusic (TALK!) 01:28, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Livelikemusic: Would you be able to drop a note about them on Sergecross73's talk page? I think he's been keeping an eye on their talk page but not on their actual edits. Ss112 01:30, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I will definitely do that; they're conducting mass-edits with the same behaviour. This is getting borderline dangerous; their continued addition of "sources" that fail is baffling. livelikemusic (TALK!) 01:31, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Looks like they went back to the Victorious article and resumed the same edits... livelikemusic (TALK!) 12:58, 17 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think it’s time we open a SPI or something, because they’re back to their image-related edits, as well. They’re going even engaging in discussion—even when said discussion is being done in good faith. livelikemusic (TALK!) 23:42, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Livelikemusic: I'd inform Sergecross73 one more time, and failing their final intervention, open an SPI then. I'll chip in at the SPI, but I haven't been keeping up with their edits apart from the few reverts I made last week—they're exhausting. Ss112 23:51, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • (talk page stalker) I've indeffed them. No idea if they are socking. But between their editing history, the avalanche of warnings they have received, and the fact they have been blocked previously, apparently with no effect, it's time to move on. Courtesy ping livelikemusic. -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:42, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, Ad Orientem! It is very much appreciated! And I was planning on it, Ss112 once I got online! Been working all-day in nine-hour trainings! livelikemusic (TALK!) 01:19, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ad Orientem: Thanks for that. Ferret essentially confirmed they were a sock of EmeraldWicket9947 (the two-word+number name, the topics are all giveaways to me) at Sergecross73's talk page, but there was no CheckUser data so they didn't block them and suggested somebody open an SPI.

"Delresto (Echoes)" and "Meltdown"[edit]

I don't mean to bother you, but I have a question. Are "Delresto (Echoes)" and "Meltdown" the singles for Travis Scott's album Utopia? I ask you this because there's been debate about whether or not these songs should be classified as singles due to airplay on the radio or lack of airplay. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 03:41, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@TheAmazingPeanuts: "Meltdown" has been serviced to rhythmic radio and charted on the Rhythmic chart. To most editors on this website, radio is a basic factor for a song being a single. I don't know why you're disputing that it is a single. Ss112 04:05, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I guess my issue is that an editor didn't add a source to the article [2]. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 04:14, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@TheAmazingPeanuts: I'd have to imagine that there would be a plethora of sources calling this a single that an editor could add. For "Meltdown" to be charting at a radio format seems pretty evident of its single status to me, even if I don't think a song needs to be serviced to radio to be a single in 2023. Ss112 04:24, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
These sources call the song a single [3] [4]; should I use them instead? TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 04:41, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello, I'm the user that brought forth this concern. Can I add to the many albums that are missing singles which charted highly on radio charts, some even receiving music videos? I'll even find sources to match. 2601:1C2:1801:D80:118A:40A8:94CF:63F3 (talk) 04:54, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I'm sure I read that 'peak chart positions' tables are only supposed to have a maximum of ten columns. There's a comment on the article's talk page asking if one can be added. Could you chip in? Launchballer 13:42, 2 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Portrait of a Blank Slate[edit]

Hey, I saw you did major improvements to my Normal People Things draft. Is it alright if you do the same for the Portrait of a Blank Slate draft? I've been trying to find more sources, but I can not find that much more. I feel like someone with your talent could definitely help me improve it.

Here is a link to the history of the draft page: [5] NormalPeopleThings (talk) 20:27, 11 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@NormalPeopleThings: About Normal People Things, I restored the page that was originally in mainspace, I didn't work on the draft that you started afterwards. As for Portrait of a Blank Slate, I don't think it's notable. It wasn't a single and didn't get a lot of coverage. I understand it received a music video but I'm not seeing really any usable sources on it so I think it fails WP:NSONGS. Ss112 02:40, 12 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kylie Minogue[edit]

Hello Ss112, hope you are keeping well. I was wondering if you could perhaps have a look at the Kylie Minogue page. There is currently an on-going discussion about the weighted aspects of charted singles and what to include there. I think the editors would greatly benefit from your insights. Thanks!

Recent articles[edit]

How are you deciding which articles to create? In the past 24 hours, you've created seven that I was otherwise planning to make, including one simultaneously. There's no point in us duplicating effort or me assembling sources to find that you've already done it (or vice versa). ―Justin (koavf)TCM 23:27, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Koavf: Hello. I noticed the other day you had made an article on Sonic Youth's live album that I had watchlisted (but not made a redirect for, as I saw the mess of their live albums and put it off), which reminded me I had several bookmarks for Metacritic's current "top 100 albums of 2023" that I had been planning to make. As I had spare time, I've been getting to a few over the past few days. Apologies if that has been getting in your way. I guess we had the same idea? Ss112 23:30, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Exactly: as you can see, I have done the precise same in the past two days. And you in no sense "got in my way": you're a valued contributor here to album articles and we are probably two of the editors who make the most album articles around here. I'm very grateful for your work. Maybe great minds think alike? Thanks for all your constructive edits: I'm glad to have you doing this work as well. Let me know how I can assist you. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 23:32, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello! I've got a question regarding your revert of my edit. The AllMusic review describes "Ozone Scraper" and "Friend or Foe" (at least partly) as synthwave. A review by Glide does the same for "Ozone Scraper", "Time and Space", "Friend or Foe", plus "You Played Me" as a synthpop track. Doesn't that make it possible to add synthwave as as genre of Action Adventure? Ur frnd (talk) 22:53, 28 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ur frnd: We should generally try to find descriptions that describe the album as a whole. I don't doubt that a substantial part of the album is synthwave/pop but I think a better description is needed per WP:EXPLICITGENRE. Ss112 00:47, 29 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for your copyedit on this article! I have reverted your edits unintentionally. You did capitalization formatting on the song titles (such as un-capitalizing "a" "from" etc.). However, I found this artist capitalizes every word (similar to that trend right now where artists capitalize none of them). I capitalized every word thinking I didn't notice this, but I did a little bit; you had recently changed it prior and I redid it without knowing you touched it. Is there a rule that we follow where we override their formatting and do what's proper grammar, or leave it how they do it? Panini! 🥪 18:47, 9 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Panini!: MOS:CT. I don't really think capitalising the first letter of every word is a stylisation choice like the trend to render everything in lowercase, it's just because artists and plenty of sources don't care to or have our guidelines on decapitalising prepositions and conjunctions in the middle of titles.
