Sum 41:Fat Lip

Hey, what exactly did you change on ? Don't know what those + and - mean :P --ahoier 14:42, 16 June 2006 (PDT)

The plus' mean that an addition was made, and the minus' mean something was deleted. in this case, he basically did punctuation and the previous version (on the left) didnt have that so it was "-" and highlighted green. --Sidewinded 15:26, 16 June 2006 (PDT)
Ahh ok, haha, now I see it. It does/did highlight the punctuation (what was changed/added) in red, but yea, since it was mainly punctuation/periods added, it was hard to see. --ahoier 20:07, 16 June 2006 (PDT)

capitalizations of Panic! At The Disco

I was under the impression that all articles should have the first letter of every word capitalized, due to the crappiness (or something like that) of the MediaWiki search function. Any ideas? hehehe. User:Attendant has pointed it out a couple times in various places, but I can't recall exactly where. --ahoier 10:38, 8 December 2006 (PST)

To "The" or not to "The"

I created The Ramones to found out later that most of their songs are already uploaded under the name "Ramones" (without the infamous "The"). Actually, I think the correct use is The Ramones; if we don't say Clash why should we say Ramones... So please tell me if I can continue moving every song to "The Ramones" or I move The Ramones to "Ramones". Thanks --Fache 16:23, 6 March 2007 (PST)

PD: shouldn't the "the", "is", etc. go in not capital (I don't know how you say the word in English); for example God Save The Queen shouldn't be God Save the Queen? --Fache 16:47, 6 March 2007 (PST)

According to the current rules "the", "a", "in" etc. (I think "is" should be capitalized as it is a verb) should not be capitalized. However, the standards used to be different for a very long time, that's why there are so many fully capitalized titles. For current standards see Help:Standards.
If we talk about Ramones, according to Wikipedia, their name goes without "the" because they didn't use it on albums etc. The Clash is still The Clash though. The problem is some bands use "the" some don't so every case should be checked individually. I hope it helped you. --Pietaster 06:22, 7 March 2007 (PST)

Thanks, then I'll move The Ramones to Ramones. --Fache 14:31, 7 March 2007 (PST)

Last one: can you destroy The Ramones:I Wanna Be Sedated? Its duplicated (Ramones:I Wanna Be Sedated) --Fache 14:44, 7 March 2007 (PST)
