Discogs1 1999 and Kingnee - Musicbrainz 1999 per edit comment. hth --ES (talk) 00:35, February 3, 2017 (UTC)

I didn't, and still don't understand why I was blocked for that edit. All I did was revert an edit on the Mogul Thrash page to an older edit. If one replaces a link on an artist page with a different link, it shouldn't be considered vandalism. — TylerJames1994 (Talk) 20:20, June 27, 2017 (UTC)

'Cos vs Cos vs 'Cause

Got a source? The former don't seem to be used much outside the UK, but I found no evidence that either of them is preferred over "'cause". — 6×9 (Talk) 17:44, March 24, 2017 (UTC)

Still waiting. Until then, please refrain from replacing 'cause with cos. — 6×9 (Talk) 15:49, May 24, 2017 (UTC)
Here. I've found an online dictionary proving that "cos" is used frequently: — TylerJames1994 (Talk) 16:06, May 24, 2017 (UTC)
I know it is frequently used. Your claim, however, was that it is preferred over 'cause. At least that's how I read "the British way" (as opposed to "a British way"). If you agree that it is merely accepted, not preferred, then there's no reason to replace "'cause" with "cos". — 6×9 (Talk) 16:33, May 24, 2017 (UTC)
Forget it. I'm done reverting edits now. I just like "cos" because it's a British spelling, and I personally don't see anything wrong with adding it into British lyrics on here, but if you don't like it, then fine. — TylerJames1994 (Talk) 18:49, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

"Cos" is not a word. It's like saying "cuz".Pay attention to what the administrators tell you. They are administrators for a reason and you are not. It's people like you that simply waste their time doing the same things over and over when you've been told not to. I've never read a book or other literature where "cos" was used after an editor approved the transcript. Play by the rules or take your nitpicking, weird-ass ways elsewhere. You also don't follow the rules when editing gold songs. You're supposed to publish your suggested edits on the talk page first for didcussion before making arbitrary changes! User:Southern Rocker

True. "Cos" may not be a real word for SOME people, but it's a real word to me. And I'm not trying to say that EVERY song on this website should have "Cos" instead of "Cause", not even pages that are gold-ranked. That's not my point. I'm just saying it's a fact that there do exist lyric sheets for British records that have the spelling of "Cos". I mean, have you seen the lyric sheets on Oasis albums? They practically use the spelling of "Cos" all the time! But you don't have to agree with me. As for what I do on this website, I'm here to post lyrics of certain progressive rock bands that have never been posted online before, and mainly just correct lyrics of my favourite progressive rock bands. I'm not here to vandalize lyrics, I'm here to improve them, that's all. I don't mean to insult you or anyone else for that matter. When I first discovered LyricsWikia in 2015, I was so excited by the possibilities of editing and improving lyrics (and later on discovering the possibilities of posting lyrics) that I never even thought about the rules or regulations on this website. But now I know better, and I won't make the same mistake again. I probably won't even touch upon gold-ranked pages again. So I'm sorry if I offended you in any way. I'll revert the changes I've made on the Uriah Heep pages you are following right now. — TylerJames1994 (Talk) 03:55, June 5, 2017 (UTC)
Look, if you want to write "cos" in text messages or on talk pages, that's fine. It's even fine if you use it when transcribing lyrics to save a few seconds. Just don't revert other editors who expand it to "'cause".
The source you've pointed me at (and any other source I've found) specifically talks about informal language. So it applies text messages etc. (where you don't want to spend more time than necessary), but hardly to written lyrics (which are typed out once but read many times). If a singer shortens "because" for rhythmic, artistic or whatever reasons, the written lyrics should reflect that, but not go further than necessary. The same is true, btw, if a singer pronounces -ing as -in: then the written lyrics should also have #in'. — 6×9 (Talk) 06:48, June 5, 2017 (UTC)

I wish I had never typed in "Cos" from the very start. I never realized that an admin would go out of their way to remove "Cos" from this website because they hate it so much, even though they allow other British spellings like "Realise" and "Ostracise" to be on this website. I never meant for it to turn out so ugly. I'd rather just be professional and stick to what I know best, which is improving and posting lyrics. — TylerJames1994 (Talk) 12:42, July 10, 2017 (UTC)

Songs on Singles, originally

When songs that appeared originally on singles are later released on albums, as bonus tracks, or just part of a regular release, that is where they get listed, and on alb and artist page noted as such: bonus track. hth --ES (talk) 04:29, April 14, 2017 (UTC)
