Hi SW94 i have a question for you

If Wikipedia was going to list the genres of music for these songs (all of them) what genres would you list

3D (intro) by TLC: —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 21:00, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

I don't know. It souds like danceable pop/R&B, but I'm not sure and didn't find any source to confirm what I've heard. Synthwave.94 (talk) 23:17, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

American gratteux...[edit]


Je vois que nos contrib's se croisent (suis en plein ménage de Category:Male guitarists from the United States puis tous les autres instruments pour séparer femmes et hommes !!!), et c'est tant mieux. As-tu un plan de travail ? Ne fais-tu que les guitaristes ?

Afin de soulager nos tâches, il serait bon de se concerter. À te lire ici lol LW² \m/ (Lie ² me...) 01:39, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour. Mon "plan de travail", c'est pour l'instant de trier les groupes de rock par genre en rajoutant des nationalités (comme par exemple les groupes de rock psychédélique américains) à partir de la catégorie des groupes de rock psychédélique). J'en profite bien évidemment pour recatégoriser le plus précisément possible les images que je trouve. Je t'aiderai peut-être à recatégoriser une partie de la catégorie des guitaristes américains dès que j'aurai suffisamment avancer. Synthwave.94 (talk) 16:42, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
OK, donc, en ce moment, nous ne faisons que nous croiser. Je vois que tu n'es pas non plus tiré d'affaire avec tout ce qu'il y a dans cette catégorie. Quand tu en seras aux 295 images, si tu vois le nom des guitaristes, n'hésites pas à les mettre même s'ils sont rouges et si tu en vois en rouge, ne les supprimes pas, stp.
Bonne fin de semaine lol LW² \m/ (Lie ² me...) 21:24, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Please give detailed explanation for removal of categories[edit]

Otherwise your changes could be regarded as vandalism. Starting an edit-war would clearly be regarded as such.

See: File:Larry-mathews-blackstone 187-0021 hinnerk-ruemenapf-v01-i01.jpg‎, File:Larry-mathews-blackstone 330-0493-hinnerk-ruemenapf.jpg‎, File:Jutta-weinhold-akustik-randale-232-0193-f-hinnerk-ruemenapf v01-i02-h2000.jpg‎ Hinnerk R (talk) 20:41, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

@Hinnerk R: I simply removed redundant categories (a concert is already a music event) and/or overcrowded categories (Folk music, etc.). Synthwave.94 (talk) 20:43, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
@Synthwave.94: The note for "overcrowded" categories says that you are supposed to move the page to a more specific and appropriate category. Just deleting appropriate categories - as you have done again - is in my opinion just vandalism, and will be repoted as such. Hinnerk R (talk) 20:27, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
@Hinnerk R: 1) It has nothing to do with vandalism and 2) I've already changed/restored some categories regarding the corresponding photos. The "problem" is over now. Synthwave.94 (talk) 20:31, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Category:Blues bass guitarists[edit]

Are you sure that Willie Dixon is a "blues bass guitarist"? I understand that he played a standup bass or double bass and that a bass guitar or electric bass is a different instrument. I could be wrong; even Ron Carter played bass guitar, especially when working with Bob Thiele and Creed Taylor in the 1970s, though he's known predominately for playing standup. Dixon's Wikipedia article offers clues in several places that he was not a bass guitar player. Perhaps that's why the category was named "bassists" rather than "bass guitarists". Please feel to correct me if I'm wrong.RadioKAOS (talk) 22:47, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

@RadioKAOS: I simply changed a badly named category. Considering it seems it be incorrect anyway, I removed it. Synthwave.94 (talk) 22:50, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
I asked the deleting admin to reconsider whether it should be reinstated without the improper capitalization, or I'm sure it could just be recreated in that form anyway by anyone. From quickly looking at other categories in the tree, looks like there's lots of cleanup needed in that area, not just these categories.RadioKAOS (talk) 23:01, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Respect the rules of the community[edit]

Please give detailed explanation for removal of categories Otherwise your changes could be regarded as vandalism. Starting an edit-war would clearly be regarded as such.  Michelle San (talk) 11:29, 18 April 2019 (UTC).

@Michelle San: Already under "Record producers from Germany". Synthwave.94 (talk) 11:35, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
@Synthwave.94: Okay, thanks for the explanation. Michelle San (talk) 11:42, 18 April 2019 (UTC).

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, you can now share images from Flickr using the UploadWizard, batch-upload up to 500 files with UploadWizard instead of 50, move up to 32 pages per minute instead of 8, and upload freely licensed audio files in the MP3 format. Thank you.

Breach of 3 RR[edit]

Hi, you have repeatedly breached the three-revert rule here. While you may be right in your edit, this is highly discouraged not only in EN WP but also any other Wikipedia project, and may be perceived as disruptive. For consensus seeking please take it to talk. Thanks Iñaki LL (talk) 09:43, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

@Iñaki LL: is correct. The discussion was made by myself on Category:Wales, where I've set out why both categories are acceptable. Your only reason for deleting one of these categories is that "there is no consistency"! That is no reason at all. I have repeatedly pointed you to my User page, which I've now copied over to the Category talk:Wales. Please refrain from deleting other people's work. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 13:21, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
@Llywelyn2000: You don't call Scotland, England or Northern Ireland independant countries (and they don't appear under categories by countries for this reason). It should be the same thing for Wales. Synthwave.94 (talk) 13:30, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Synthwave.94, I wanted to bring your attention to the repeated revert drive. You have been given autopatrol rights. For content, please bring discussion here. Iñaki LL (talk) 14:25, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
@Iñaki LL: In case you didn't know, I never asked to have autopatrol rights. Also it doesn't answer what I said above regarding consistency with Scotland, England and Northern Ireland. Synthwave.94 (talk) 14:29, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Please do take your concerns to the talk page, thanks. Iñaki LL (talk) 14:39, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
As this discussion refers to all articles in the sub-categories of Category:Wales, the discussion is here. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 15:09, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Don't change to wrong names[edit]   --Jörgens.Mi  Talk 06:39, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
@Joergens.mi: "On" is not capitalized as per MOS:TITLECAPS. Synthwave.94 (talk) 15:08, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
This is the name of the Band, it is not a Article title chosen be me, therefore because it is the real Name, as proven by the link all 4 words of "Dead Cats On Mopeds" (DCOM) have to be capitalized which is conforn to the rules. Youa are misinterpreting the referred rules there is a difference betwan a name and a lemma title. --Jörgens.Mi Talk 16:17, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
@Joergens.mi: I'm not misinterpreting MOS:TITLE : prepositions containing four letters or fewer (as, in, of, on, to, for, from, into, like, over, with, upon, etc.) are not capitalized, unless they are the first or last word of a title (which is not the case of this band). The fact the band decided to capitalize it is completly irrelevant here. Synthwave.94 (talk) 16:22, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
Check your address bar: it says "".
Note the absence of "wikipedia" and "en". - Alexis Jazz ping plz 17:53, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: So ? Synthwave.94 (talk) 17:58, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
Wikipedia policies don't apply here. Some are followed anyway, but not consistently and they can't be enforced in any way. This is an example of a policy/guideline that Commons doesn't (always) follow. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:06, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: Consistency between Wikipedia and Commons matters, and it obviously includes the categorization, the names of these categories, and related Wikipedia policies/guidelines, which therefore apply on Commons as well (note that veteran users like Blackcat regularly move badly-named categories, which means they are users who do care about it). Synthwave.94 (talk) 18:23, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
yes but I do not always copycat en.wikipedia naming scheme. Even because is no consistent at all when in matter of overcategorization (let's say it's a mess). For example, whereas Wikipedia disambiguates by "Band" we disambiguate by "Musical group"; Wikipedia has "football" whereas we have "association football" because football itself has no meaning outside the British Isles (in America can be gridiron of Canadian football, in Australia can be Aussie football, and so on). Our naming scheme is somewhat always in the making and in evolution: but we should at least keep a bit of consistency, -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 19:40, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
@Blackcat: Thank you very much for you remark, but can you tell me why "musical group" is preferred over "band" on Commons ? Synthwave.94 (talk) 19:51, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
Because Musical group is an unambiguous term that applies for every human ensemble that makes music. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 10:28, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Please don't mess categories[edit]

You changed music categories related to Music of Russia and Russian music and messed categories. These terms are not equal. «Russian» is related to language, culture etc, «... of Russia» is related to country. For example, Ural Kosaken Chor is musical group from France, but Russian folk music group. Also, for example, Buranovskiye Babushki is musical group from Russia and Udmurt folk music group --Butko (talk) 15:06, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

@Butko: Considering categories are typically named in a same and consistent way (eg. Songs of Russia is named just like all other categories under Songs by country), I've got to disagree with you. For specific cases, you can use Traditional music of Russia instead of Traditional music groups from Russia. Synthwave.94 (talk) 15:11, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
Of course, it' an example among many ohters, but I'm pretty sure we can find other ways to keep a consistent naming while using a proper categorization. Synthwave.94 (talk) 15:14, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
