not that he hit me, but, if he does, i'll pour all kinds of vitriol on him
(I know, it's minor, and not really your problem, but a short note from you will certainly be more diplomatic than anything I will come up with :)
why is this a problem? the changes I see are correcting english.
at least the changes are correct, from what I can tell.
the only downside I can really see is that he's spamming the recentchanges as a side-effect.
but perhaps I spot checked the wrong links.
I just find it obnoxious to correct people's comments (in a discussion) and/or personal pages (he edited muz' bio for instance)
I've just seen then -> than
have you mentioned this to him.
and, I think you're going to be safe since your english is good. :)
I don't know how, and he hates me anyway, so it'll be a war
and this is not a war worth fighting is it?
imho, it would be better if you prodded the people in question (e.g. muz) and ask them to ask him to stop editing their person comments/pages.
but this guy... he gets 'an idea' and does hundreds of edits, then posts on the forum asking if it's a good idea :)
not sure he's safe to let loose on the wiki in that manner, is all
short of stepping on people's toes and correcting personal speech, I see his changes as positive overall.
maybe I'm just cranky this morning :)
it he was causing havoc, I'd say it time to address the issue. but his intentions appear to be good.
and... you really think muz will manage to be more diplomatic than me :)
ok, perhaps not.
but you get my point about "violated parties" kvetching...

I just wonder where he gets the time to nitpick little corrections. I've got a backlog of "stacks" of of releases that need to be added to the database but no time.

heh, this is the guy who caused an edit war because I merged Michael Jackson & Paul McCartney with Paul McCartney & Michael Jackson
it's vital to keep them both! because on some songs, MJ sings first! and on others he doesn't!
Most of the edits I've seen him do in Japanese releases is small stuff, but correct.
the reason he gets in trouble is, as i said, he gets 'an idea' and then does 300 edits, and _then_ asks for opinions
I've noticed that too.
by then, a lot of people have their backs up, and object out of principle
if he'd just do one, ask in the note for opinions, he'd probably get 'well, sure' a lot of the time and he could go his merry way
I just no voted him for something like that. He took the (live) part off all the live songs on a mixed release.
He's right that technically it's a "Proposed Guideline" (since 2005) and that they're not on the CD cover. But everywhere else I look people are putting on (live) to live releases as the guideline says so I voted no, unfortunately he's so busy tagging that he's already done alot of edits like that.
heehee, i just noticed he had time to (4 months after I already fixed the name to his satisfaction) annotate the MJ & PM track with who sung first
I should not look at edit histories
on a more useful note: do you think it's ok to put the Vienna Boys Choir sortname into english
we usually only do that for non-latin names, but, well this is classical stuff, i probably shouldn't touch it
other german/austrian artists still have their german sortnames
