Spooky Kids

Should the albums released under the Spooky Kids name (such as 'White Trash') be added to the list? I reckon so, but yeah, opinions? Deathwish 04:43, 7 March 2007 (CET)

No, but a link to the Spooky kids discography should be placed in a See also section. Windstorm 21:26, 14 June 2007 (CEST)

That, and White Trash is a bootleg, it shouldn't be on a discography at all. Litso 00:35, 15 June 2007 (CEST)

Digital Releases

Should the two digital releases (Lost & Found and itunes essentials) be moved to their own category? Cantwont 14:22, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Vinyl

Question, I personally would like to have a section, (not sure whether it should be just a section on discography or an article) but from a collector's point of view, i think we should have something that lists all official vinyl releases. I realize that some of the studio albums already include the vinyl, but I think it would be really cool to see all the vinyls in one section as well. [god]speed 00:58, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Compilations?

Also, I don't see how the download card or the boxset are categorized as compilations? Perhaps we should create a section titled Special Releases or something where we could place the vinyls, boxset, download card, etc. as they are unique and could be categorized together. Picture discs as well :) [god]speed 01:03, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Because they compile material from different collections. The boxset compiles two otherwise individually released albums and tapes, the Hot Topic download card compiles remixes from a bunch of random artists, and Lost & Found acts as a mini hits release whereas Lest We Forget and iTunes Essentials act as the whole shabang.

Remixes

What do you think a high-profile remix is? Anything put out on a Manson release is high-profile. Anything artists/bootleggers randomly remixed and put out on obscure compilations/Internet/bootlegs is unauthorized. Alden Weston talk forum profile 20:51, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Wow, you've got your terminology all wrong. When something is "High-profile", it implies that it has more importance/it has more public appeal/people are paying more attention to it than other things in its category. For example, "Shrek" would be a high-profile movie, while "Salo" is just a regular profile movie. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are a high profile couple, while your Mom and Dad are just a regular couple. See how this works? It DOES NOT mean: "anything put out on a Manson release". Also, "unauthorized" DOES NOT mean: "Anything artists/bootleggers randomly remixed and put out on obscure compilations/Internet/bootlegs". The method of release has nothing to do with the authenticity of the song itself. Just use your ears; if the remix clearly uses the original song's multitrack files (as is obviously the case with all those remixes you classified as "unauthorized") then either it was authorized by Manson/Interscope or the crafty little devils snuck into Manson's studio and stole his files. Which is more likely? Lastly, what is the point of writing out a full paragraph on a remix when that information can all be condensed into: "Name of Remix" ("Name of Original Song" remixed by "Name of Remixer"). Simple and to the point. This is a list, inside of a larger article of lists, not an elaborate article in itself. There's basic info and anyone who wants to know more than basic info can go read the main article. Writing out all that extra stuff would be like putting "Holy Wood is the 4th studio album by Marilyn Manson released in 2001 and featuring the musical input of Manson, Ramirez, etc." next to the Holy Wood entry; completely unnecessary since anyone who would care to find out the specifics will go to the main article anyways.--Lagozzino 22:47, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
Okay guys, this editing war is getting a little out of hand, how about those involved hash it out on the forum or here on the discussion page before making anymore edits? If you two truly can't come to some kind of common ground, then put it up for vote amongst the senior editors. ‡-me-‡ 16:40, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Hey, I made an attempt at hashing it out. I made my case above, listing point by point why this new format he keeps trying to push isn't as good as the old old but I never got a rebuttal. Anyways, I asked Godspeed to discuss among the administrators and I'll just go along with the admins's final verdict, case closed.--Lagozzino 16:52, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I just think it's him on a power struggle and it's growing tiresome. The discography is large enough as it is, adding more to it over complicates it to the point where i think most users are going to just skip over it if they have to do that much reading. It's purpose should be to list and compile things in a simple matter with direct links to articles for users that want to find more information about the remix/whatever. I think Lagonizzo's is far more to the point and precise rather than cluttering it up with all of the other informations that are in the corresponding article for the said remix. [god]speed 17:00, 3 May 2010 (UTC)


I have to confess, considering that the remainder of the page (eg: Studio albums) is merely the cover image, title and date, with the bulk of information (eg: "Mechanical Animals is the third studio album by Marilyn Manson, released on September 14, 1998 by Interscope Records. It is somewhat of a concept album, and the second of a trilogy" etc) found in the linked article. It seems fitting with the style of the page to keep the rest of the information here simple too. There seems little point to double up on information that's contained within an article. ‡-me-‡ 17:39, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
EDIT: Though in saying that, the "ton of other edits" should probably be checked out of courtesy :).....On that note, it's 1.44am and ‡-me-‡ the diplomat is going to bed! Night :p ‡-me-‡ 17:46, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Charts

Since when did Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand) go #1 in UK and Putting Holes in Happiness go #1 in America????? Yawaraey 14:11, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Singles

I have noticed that a lot of the singles do not have a separate page, with a tracklisting and scans of the disc and front and back covers, I will compile a list, But i don't have any of the singles. Someone heeeelp :P [god]speed 05:54, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Millions of Albums sold

This often debated amongst the fan base, but according to press releases for THEOL, the band had sold 11 million albums worldwide. We are in the process of contacting the RIAA to get an actual number, but according to RIAA's list of top selling artists] I would assume that he would be closer to 11 million where bands such as NIN & Korn are as opposed to 68 million where artists such as Micheal Jackson, Madonna, & Metallica are.

Regarding the "use" of watermarked imagery.

It has been brought to my attention that the recent uploads of album artwork is watermarked with Nachtkabarett imagery. I would not like for users to make a habit of borrowing watermarked imagery to use in our galleries. I will be replacing the singles imagery that I can with non-watermarked imagery. If anyone else can help provide actual scans of various album artwork please replace the watermarked images with those. Thank you

[god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 05:02, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry

Hey Godspeed, Im the one who took the picks off of Nachtkabarett, and I just wanted to apologize for it.

Oh it's no big deal, Just making sure that we don't get into any disputes over content. Heading it off before anything happens. :) [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 05:19, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
