Believe (Yellowcard song)[edit]

Album tracks not released as singles generally don't get their own articles, and anything about them can be included in the article for the album. Night Gyr (talk/Oy) 23:18, 25 October 2006 (UTC) Your mum. Stairway to Heaven was never a single, using your logic I suppose it shouldn't get its own page either?? Or look at Fall Out Boy who have around 6 pages for songs off their latest album that aren't singles. Not to mention Good Charlotte and MCR's pages. Around every 1 of 5 songs of theirs has its own page. Why can't YC have 1 about the 4th single off OA?? Your mum!! Night Gyr, the article clearly states that the song Believe was released as a single. This makes your entire point invalid. I also agree with the fact that there are an unusual amount of songs never released as singles with their own articles.

enhanced cd vs. bonus disc[edit]

on the version i have (an enhanced cd), if i pop the cd in2 my laptop, a thing comes up, like full screen, with 2 options: "making of 'ocean avenue'"" and "previously unreleased 'powder' video". the 1st option plays a video made by yellowcard of them doing an acoustic performance of "empty apartment" and then them just talking, then some stuff from in the studio. now, in several wikipedia articles, it talks about there being a 'bonus disc' in some versions of the album. not one word about the enhanced cd i have. so i want to know, is the bonus disc and the enhanced cd the same thing or not? because of not, i am gonna correct it so others dont get all screwed up about it like i did!! please comment back and tell me if i should change it or not. thanks! :) SkaterBoy182 (talk) 22:28, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Ocean AvenueOcean Avenue (album) – I don't see any evidence that the album was vastly more popular than the song, and indeed since the latter was on the former this would be illogical. That suggests to me that there is no WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, so Ocean Avenue should be a disambiguation page. –CWenger (^@) 22:10, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

GOCE copyedit request[edit]

  • Serial commas: There're some sentences here that use serial commas, and some that don't. Which one do you have a preference for? —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:46, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
Serial. Yeepsi (talk) 20:00, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done. —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:48, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Weird verb phrase (touring to support): Appears two times in the lead. Would promote describe Yellowcard's reason to tour better than support?Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 )
Promote is fine with me. Yeepsi (talk) 20:00, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done. Reworded. —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:39, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Following this, bassist Warren Cooke left the band in mid-2002, and was replaced by Inspection 12 guitarist Peter Mosely. Wikilinks removed. Is this due? It seems like Cooke's departure is independent of the album.Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:46, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
(Ignore my previous edit, I thought you were referring to these in the body, not the lead.) I wouldn't be against dropping this and the next one from the lead but they're likely to be mentioned by a reviewer as being an important aspect of the album (band members leaving/joining tend to be the biggest thing for any band during an album cycle). Yeepsi (talk) 20:11, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done. Leaving as is. I'll let the GAN reviewer handle that.
  • Lewis was kicked out the band and replaced by Mosely before a co-headlining tour with Something Corporate and a stint in Europe. Same as above with question of due weight.Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:46, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done. Same as above. —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:39, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Some songs, namely "Empty Apartment", "View from Heaven" and "One Year, Six Months" saw the band explore country and folk-stylized rock territory. I suggest rewording this; what about The band experimented with country and folk-stylized rock in songs like "Empty Apartment" [...]?Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:46, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
That's fine with me. Yeepsi (talk) 20:00, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done. Reworded. —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:39, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
  • The album was certified platinum in the US by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), gold in Canada by Music Canada, and silver in the UK by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). Wikilinks removed. Similar question for two other incidences later down. I think the countries can be removed as the associations all have the countries in which they reside in their name.Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:46, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
I've been told in a previous GAR to include the country with the organisation. Yeepsi (talk) 20:00, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done. Leaving as is. —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:39, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

Looking forward to hearing from you. —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:46, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

@Tenryuu: I replied to your comments. Yeepsi (talk) 20:00, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
@Yeepsi: Alright, that's all my points addressed. I'm going to check on this article in a few hours to make sure there aren't last-minute changes to make, but that should be almost everything! —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 19:39, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay, I think that's everything! Good luck on the GAN! —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 23:08, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
