Music articles structure[edit]

Hello, I am concerned. I tend that most or many of the images on rock bands are insterted on the left sight of the sections they represent as era. Isn't it more proper, more readable and clean to put it on the right? From a point of view of the reader the text should follow and then it will stop on the images on the right that interupt and complete the view of the articles? Don't you see it as a better opton? Let the images interact in full articles and sections, not in blustered 10 line-texts. I ask as a concerned editor, working on musical articles for 13 full years. Thanks beforehand!

= Leaflet For Wikiproject Rock Music At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

...Like Clockwork genre dispute[edit]

This article seems to have a history of edit wars over the genre(s) to be shown in the infobox, and it settled down to alternative rock as the only genre. Recently, I noticed the activity, and became involved. A long ip changes the genre to rock, which a bot fixes to rock music, or someone adds genres. If I understand properly, a user registered thinking an edit to add a genre would stick longer. When that didn't work, they followed the directions in the comment next to the genre, and posted on the talk page. I replied, directing them here. Then, a long ip changed the genre back to rock, which RussBot again corrected to Rock music. I've already reverted exactly this current state once, and I'm not sure of all the particulars, so maybe I should leave it for you guys to sort out, but please let me know if I can help. Thanks. —PC-XT+ 03:38, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Seems like you did all the right things. If something like that happens again, wait for the three revert rule to kick in and one of the administrators will possibly lock it, if this has been an issue before. Karst 11:13, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

"Australian rock" article in bad need of help!!![edit]

The "Australian rock" article needs a lot of help. It covers a lot of breadth, but suffers form a severe lack of sourcing and sloppy writing. There does not appear to be any higher-level oversight on what aims to be a feature article. Due to the wide time period covered, it is going to be a big piece of work and will need a number of new contributors. The site needs the presence of seasoned and knowledgeable editors.
