New Artist pages

Would be great if you remove the album art template but add the country of the artist. tia --ES (talk) 14:20, April 5, 2013 (UTC)


which one? [1] --ES (talk) 14:24, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

Ehm, dunno... will look later to see if I can add some more info myself - have to go now. Thanks for your changes! Marjonw 16:41
@es: The answer's well hidden (on 5th page of response to given query)... But you could find it much easier ;)--Senvaikis (talk) 15:02, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! Info added. I am now really gone. Marjonw

Your Edits

Looked at all your edits from day 1, please take note if you want to continue editing here:

  1. Artist pages: wiping param labels (like you did with artist header template params on artist pages you created) will get you banned from site, refrain!
  2. Albums listings must be done properly, take time to read the docs or look at say... Pink Floyd pages on how album listings should look like, with Album Art template, in official order as it appeared on the release.
  3. User:Janitor already creates default artist pages for new songs that we don't have an artist page for, so IF you are going to spend any time doing with Janitor does, add something useful, not Album art template (not needed until there is a valid album listing) Footer params that identify the artist are good, and any other param (you left that param labels in place, right?!)
  4. Any related artist you enter must come from a valid source, if you don't have a valid source, don't enter it! Some people may think Boar is relate to Bear and Goar. We need refrences. enter the ref in the edit summary.
  5. Mangled track listings are A BAD THING! You can take a proper tracklist in order from mb or discogs (in the artist footer) and use Special:Wikify to make a valid & proper album tracklist for artist and Album pages. Don't make them up and don't reorder the list to your liking or from a itunes playlist etc.

If you have any questions, ask on my talk page. --ES (talk) 06:58, April 6, 2013 (UTC) I certainly hope I won't have to reedit your pages again

This is why it's a good idea to leave those empty template parameters -- otherwise you might forget they exist in the first place, and make things unnecessarily complicated :-) — 6×9 (Talk) 07:27, April 6, 2013 (UTC)

My Edits

  1. "Artist pages: wiping param labels:" lesson learned!
  2. "User:Janitor already creates default artist pages for new songs that we don't have an artist page for:" thanks, that is really good to know!
  3. "Any related artist you enter must come from a valid source:" I just added a talk page for the Nick Nicely / Boars collaboration
  4. "Mangled track listings are A BAD THING!" OK, will refrain.

I was only trying to add more info today because yesterday I was asked for some extra info --User:MarjonW/Signature 9:48, April 6, 2013


How do you think I learned ? ;) cheers --ES (talk) 08:22, May 3, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Marjon, I changed the Traditional page. I hope you agree? I don't know the Frisian expression for "Folksong". You want to add it? And can you refer me to a frisian flag that I can add to the section's header as an icon? There are several - wich is the right one? Thx  · Lichtweber talk service  13:40, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Lichtweber, yes I saw and I like the flags, but I don't know if translating the genre name into all languages and dialects is a good thing, since the entire wiki is in English, and since mentioning multiple genre names (traditional, chanson, folk song) may make it confusing. I do not speak Frisian myself so I don't know the Frisian word for "Folksong" - the Dutch word for it is "Volkslied". The middle flag (Flag of Friesland province) is the right one. Cheers, --MarjonW (talk) 13:58, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, maybe you're right. I think I'll refrain from pushing this further. Thx anyway! :)  · Lichtweber talk service  14:29, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

Adapting Policy for Root Pages

Hey Marjon, just wanted to late you know that a discussion has started about handling songs in the public domain and other widely covered musical works. Maybe you are interested in seeing what will be discusseed, or even participate? Cheers  · Lichtweber talk service  20:52, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for inviting me to the discussion! Great work! It looks to me like you've thought of everything. If, in the next couple of days, I think of something, I will put it on the proposal's talk page :) Cheers, --MarjonW (talk) 08:37, October 20, 2013 (UTC)


Well Done!, Marjon, - thanks for a help! --Senvaikis (talk) 06:43, June 9, 2014 (UTC)
Glad you gave us a chance to do something back for once! :) --MarjonW (talk) 09:12, June 9, 2014 (UTC)

My Fav Dutch editor

Hi Marjon! Thanks for the contribs. I just miraculously stumbled upon one of your edits and noticed something about the alb header that I fixed here:[2]. I am certain that you didn't leave leave a lot of that stuff around Wink. cheers ES (talk) 08:22, November 18, 2014 (UTC)

Good to see you are back in full swing ES, and I'll take your flattery gladly! :) There may be a few more of those - I checked Tröckener Kecks but I saw that Senvaikis kindly repaired that one already. If I can find any other cases back I'll create an album page. Is it OK to leave a red link for album art though? Or should I also upload the album art in such a case? Cheers, --MarjonW (talk) 08:53, November 18, 2014 (UTC)
Oh leave them (art and alb header) red if you wish. It's just that black alb header on artist page is simply broken and needs fixing. A red link is one click away from coming alive... ES (talk) 09:14, November 18, 2014 (UTC)
OK, will do that from now on! :) --MarjonW (talk) 09:17, November 18, 2014 (UTC)
You are using shouldn't be any extra work....ES (talk) 09:22, November 18, 2014 (UTC)


There is a dutch contributor that has been blocked 3 times for breaking the law, r u willing to write him a bit in dutch and explain what is going on? RSVP. tia ES (talk) 14:38, December 12, 2014 (UTC)

Hey ES, are we talking about the discussion about turning blue links into red ones etc, I think he perfectly understands your English but perhaps not the seriousness of the problems. Perhaps add some examples? If it is about another case, please let me know what you need translated. Best, --MarjonW (talk) 14:50, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
I'm talking about User:Delachendederde!! ES (talk) 14:54, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
ok I see... Do you have an English text for me that I can translate? --MarjonW (talk) 15:01, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
I ill write some text 4 u to translate, as long as it gets put on his page b4 new year when his block expires. Not a rush, so I will put the text here in the next couple of days, is that ok? tyvm! 15:07, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
Sure :) --MarjonW (talk) 15:18, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
Ok Marjon, Thanks again, and here is text for you to translate and put on his page.


Hi Delachendederde...You have been blocked three times for:
  1. uploading album art & images without appropriate templates
  2. uploading images larger than the allowable maximum of 500x500px, or 150 kb
  3. inserting of file links in pages, instead of using appropriate template
  4. uploading of video files instead of using the appropriate templates
and in general ignoring LW policy, repeatedly and silently. So I think maybe you don't speak English, hence this translated message (from a kind editor). When come back to edit, Ask any questions you have here on your talk page, please don't repeat the old mistakes. Happy New Year and hope you spend some time studying the docs


--ES (talk) 08:19, December 17, 2014 (UTC)
Hi ES, I translated it, but can you please put it on his page? I feel it would be inappropriate if I do it


Hi Delachendederde ... Je bent al drie keer geblokkeerd voor:
  1. uploaden van album art en afbeeldingen zonder gebruik te maken van de templates
  2. uploaden van afbeeldingen die groter zijn dan het toegestane maximum van 500x500px, of 150 kb
  3. invoegen van file links in pagina's in plaats van gebruik te maken van de template
  4. uploaden van videobestanden in plaats van gebruik te maken van de template
en in het algemeen voor het herhaaldelijk rustig negeren van het LyricWikia-beleid. Dus ik denk dat je misschien niet (goed) Engels spreekt, vandaar dit vertaalde bericht (van een aardige editor). Wanneer je terugkomt om te editen, stel dan svp alle vragen die je hebt hier op je talk page, en herhaal svp je oude fouten niet. Gelukkig Nieuwjaar en hopelijk heb je wat tijd om de documentatie te bestuderen


----MarjonW (talk) 09:04, December 17, 2014 (UTC)
Hi Marjon,

Yes you are right, either he may think you are an admin, or that I speak Let's see what comes of this, and his early unblock ;) tyvm again!! --ES (talk) 09:24, December 17, 2014 (UTC)


hey there, thanks for the feedback, I'll post in the forum. We'll see how this goes. Cheers! Jamie @fandom (profile)•(talk)

FYI: Album Art

When uploading art, the template is mandatory (see upload page instructions), also the album page is mandatory (must exist). Uploading for an uncreated album, based upon the availability of artist page will lead to art deletion. hth --ES (talk) 06:15, July 3, 2018 (UTC)

When album is created, I will upload a high res version of the art. --ES (talk) 06:17, July 3, 2018 (UTC)
OK thanks :) MarjonW (talk) 09:36, July 3, 2018 (UTC)
Actually, only the first part is true (mandatory {{AlbumCover}}); creating an album page to go along with it is recommended, but not required. — 6×9 (Talk) 17:13, July 3, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the info! But I do not intend to add much more art anyways, lyrics is more my thing :) MarjonW (talk) 18:53, July 4, 2018 (UTC)
Today I was going to wikify some more Hamelen albums, but I see it has all been done already! Many thanks ES! MarjonW (talk) 06:51, July 6, 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome. Would be nice if you can find albums for the remaining songs in OS, else they seem to be unreleased. --ES (talk) 06:54, July 6, 2018 (UTC)
Hi ES, some of these songs are not yet released on albums (although f.e. "Kom Naar De Kermis" is featured on a DVD:, but a new 6 CD box is on its way: Cheers, MarjonW (talk) 09:59, July 6, 2018 (UTC)
The 6CD will likely make the 4CD release redundant, and the 4CD made the 2CD release (that you had uploaded the art for) redundant... --ES (talk) 10:08, July 6, 2018 (UTC)
Yes, the 4CD can go then... but let's wait for the 6CD to materialize first MarjonW (talk) 10:13, July 6, 2018 (UTC)
You missed the subtle point...If uploading art... --ES (talk) 10:27, July 6, 2018 (UTC)
I'm not subtle... I'm a blunt Dutchie :) MarjonW (talk) 10:31, July 6, 2018 (UTC)

(Back dent) Let me put it bluntly then: Releases become redundant upon the creation of another release @lw --ES (talk) 10:48, July 6, 2018 (UTC)

Don't get the gist of the message. Do you find the 6CD replacing the 4CD replacing the 2CD making the initial art upload redundant funny or annoying? Really, I don't do subtle :) Anyways I do find it funny MarjonW (talk) 11:02, July 6, 2018 (UTC)
Priority is with the creation of studio albums, but since you have hardly (ever?) made an album, it's a subtle point you likely missed. At any rate, the songs will remain regardless of available albums @lw .--ES (talk) 11:30, July 6, 2018 (UTC)

Lyrics tags

Please do not remove <lyrics></lyrics> tags from song pages. tia --ES (talk) 09:25, October 21, 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, will repair them MarjonW (talk) 09:34, October 21, 2018 (UTC)
Ah, see you already did. Thanks MarjonW (talk) 09:36, October 21, 2018 (UTC)
