I hope I know how to use this.

I've been trying to edit a very much non-funny musician article for the past couple of weeks, because the original author wrote it in a very lame, boring, insider way, with too many praise instead of satire and some lame Jesus jokes; and recently, someone's abused the article, just because they're a fan of someone else. They also abused the article about the band the musician's in. How they don't get it's supposed to be funny? They're ruining the point with their stupid flaming.

Have you tried talking with this person on the talkpage for the page in question? Or, if that doesn't work, the user's talkpage? Most arguments are hard to work out until you talk. Then turn down the lights. Put on some Barry White. Whatever happens after that just happens. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:50, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Very many of these pages about bands and band members are low quality - we get them appearing on VFD all the time. It sounds like you have your finger on the pulse enough to give it a good clean and suchlike, particularly if you can make it less insidery which is usually half the problem with these things. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 09:06, 30 May 2007 (UTC)


LOL, that was a weird comment. Either way, the person is not an user...--NotReallyMe 15:01, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

If it's an IP, just try to put your side of the story in the "comments" section when you revert his changes. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:16, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Modusoperandi is a wise man. His advice is good. Sometimes, however, an anonymous IP -- or a few of them -- get fixated on an article and won't stop making dumb edits. You can always concentrate your work on another article in the musical field, or write one from scratch, and wait for the IPs to lose interest in messing up the original one. By the way, what is the article (if you don't mind saying)? ----OEJ 16:10, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
It's the article on John Frusciante. I edited only bits of it (the beginning, the end and the AAA part) for now as it's absolutely horribly written and it will take time to sort it out. --NotReallyMe 00:20, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
