The Waterboys' Paul Brown[edit]

Hello! I see you may have an interest for The Waterboys' Paul Brown article. The artist requested help on the IRC channel recently to develop this article, and made a copy and paste copyvio draft on the talk page (which has already been taken care of and deleted). As a result of this, I talk to them a bit and got them to post a list of possible sources on the talk page instead. I've copied the WikiProject banners from the band's talk page, and this page will need to have each WikiProject assess their own importance and ratings on the topic. Thank you for your assistance. — {{U|Technical 13}} (e • t • c) 20:00, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Indie Hits: 1980–1989: The Complete U.K. Independent Charts (Singles & Albums)[edit]

Does anyone have access to this book? â€”

Lazell, Barry (1997). Indie Hits: 1980–1989: The Complete U.K. Independent Charts (Singles & Albums). Cherry Red Books. ISBN 978-0-9517206-9-1. 

I'd like to get the page number on which it says Black Flag's My War peaked at No. 5 on the UK Indie Chart in 1984. Thanks to anyone who can help! Curly Turkey Â¡gobble! 23:56, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Infobox band member lists[edit]

A mechanism is sorely needed within band infoboxes for distinguishing notable members and lineups from some guy who played triangle on an album in 1987. Also, in cases where bands have limped on long beyond their natural expiry date, almost all the "current members" can be of hardly any interest or importance, and the notable members are buried somewhere in a long list of "former members". Previously it has been suggested -- maybe here, maybe somewhere else -- that the selection of notable members or "classic" or lineups would be subject to differences of opinion. However, even an imperfect or somewhat subjective selection technique would be better than the present system, which is totally unsatisfactory. (talk) 04:26, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Tricky topic. The current members HAVE to be there. Session players shouldn't be. Touring members shouldn't be. Two bands that come to mind are Guns N' Roses and Foreigner (band). For GNR, Ole Beich, Tracii Guns and Rob Gardner are so unimportant and were never part of the band we know as Guns N Roses. So I don't think they should be listed. And Foreigner totally forgoes the past member section because it would be ridiculous to list. But it seems wrong not to have Lou Gramm listed there. And Rick Willis, and Dennis Elliott, people that played on all of those big albums. However, where do you stop. There IS already some guidelines set in place: Template:Infobox_musical_artist#current_members — DLManiac (talk) 07:20, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
