No Reason[edit]

Hey there, I just wanted to thank you for your edits here and to give more of an explanation as to why I removed the No Reason song page. At this point we don't have a confirmed track list for the album. No Reason is simply a title that people are using to refer to the song featured on the film Born Villain. Just because Manson repeats the lyric no reason, doesn't mean that this is the title of the song. An example of this would be that You and Me and the Devil Makes 3 could have been mistaken to have the title Murder Cute Happy Rape. Harlequin - MansonWiki Admin 02:19, 10 September 2011 (CDT)

Bold font in the lineup[edit]

hi. i've noticed that the duties in the lineup are made bold. from my point of view, a normal font is closer to readability, since the lineup people are almost always denoted with page references that preserve visual readability. for example:

Vocals/Additional guitar: Marilyn Manson
Guitar/Backing vocals: Twiggy
Bass: Andy Gerold
Keyboards/Percussions/Programming: Chris Vrenna
Drums: Ginger Fish
Vocals/Additional guitar: Marilyn Manson
Guitar/Backing vocals: Twiggy
Bass: Andy Gerold
Keyboards/Percussions/Programming: Chris Vrenna
Drums: Ginger Fish

but if so, i'd better suggest to introduce something like a new {{Lineup ...}} template to keep data (who's in the lineup) and visual appearance (how the lineup is displayed) separated. what do you think of it? (scarshock (talk) 08:37, 4 December 2013 (CET))

More on bolding and editing line ups[edit]

MAFF'L - wish I had caught on to this sooner. The original way of doing line up is like on this page: 1990/04/28 Miami Beach, FL not sure how or when it got changed to vocals/instrument first and then name of the person. I have a (small) task for you. Can you go back and find where this first happened and work on changing them back to name first then vocal and/or instrument? Also I agree with Scarshock, not in bold. It's distracting from the rest of the page. Also, please make sure Manson really did play a guitar in that show before adding that to his name. Instead of saying backing vocals to Twiggy can you please say back up vocals. Please let me know. Also be careful with setlists. Don't edit them to be the same for every show unless there's proof that song played. Not sure about the removal of outro thanks to @mechanicalshadows. It definitely didn't belong next to the song. But could have been moved to a reference for the song. I'm big on references. Thanks! Do appreciate the hard work you're doing. Sumer - Senior Editor (talk) 17:20, 10 March 2014 (CET)

MAFF'L are you working on these? As discussed the final thought was

No bolding. User:Scarshock has been changing the early tours to Lineup: vocals - Marilyn Manson etc.

I added a sample tour page in the sandbox Been working with Scarshock on this. Unfortunately, the consensus is that date on the first line should be bolded just liked how the name of the song or subject in a song page is. We are keeping the Lineup Person - instruments, vocals unbolded on individual tour show pages. Scarshock is working on moving pages that aren't already done to the correct date format of yyyy/mo/day. Please let me know if any questions and/or please add any thoughts to the sandbox page. If we get a good sample made, I will make a sample page and add a link to it, to the help box.

Please do not wipe out the content[edit]

hi. i really appreciate your contributions, but please be careful with the content that is questionable to be wiped out. i had to revert revision because that page has well-formed information and not just a stub. it's much more verbose than just a simple reference at the tour dates page (scarshock (talk) 17:16, 6 April 2014 (CEST))

no reason? (scarshock (talk) 14:12, 8 August 2014 (CEST))
