Category talk:Albums

From This Might Be A Wiki

You know what would be nifty? Being able to rate the albums. Or maybe pooling the ratings of all of the songs on an album and rating them that way. -Ecks

yea, I was thinking about the rating of albums the other day. many users rank their preference of TMBG albums on their talk page. if Duke can set up a system like we have for song voting, I'd be happy. -Nosaj56 15:22, 21 Dec 2005 (EST)

I can do that...give me a few days or so, to get it all set up. I've been meaning to do this too... --Duke33 22:34, 22 Dec 2005 (EST)
Sounds like a great idea, If you still have the time --LitMatch 16:00, 10 Apr 2006 (CDT)


I came up with an idea, but before I do it, I want to see what everyone else thinks. Maybe we could have a gallery on this page that shows all the albums. In other words, THIS:

What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Akagi 21:18, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure if the Category page is the right place for the gallery, seems kinda like bulk with the clean text-based list right there, which currently keeps the "article content" of the page itself short enough to see the sub-categories after minimal scrolling. I like the album gallery idea, I can't exactly think of a good place it could be put, though. Hm. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 23:15, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
I was thinking that if we link the image captions to the respective pages, we could just altogether replace the list that's already there. I don't know, maybe the Discography page would be a better place? Maybe not. Akagi 23:42, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
The problem with that idea is that most people who aren't familiar with the site would likely click the album's image and be taken to the image's page, creating some confusion. As for putting it on Discography, that could work... I'm trying to think if we could do something better than just a gallery there instead. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 00:24, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
I was thinking we could just altogether replace the list with the gallery idea, and then link to the actual album pages with the captions like I just did above, but like you said, people would try to click on the images instead of the captions... I guess there's no way to make the pages for the images redirect to the pages for the albums? Akagi 18:57, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
We could do it with simple html, couldn't we? Just put in an a-href tag in front of the picture's address and it would link the pictures to the albums's pages, right? The only downside would be that the "Category:Albums" page wouldn't wiki-link to the albums and wouldn't be seen on the albums' "what links here" list. Though I don't know if the <gallery> view of it all would work... And, just to give my opinion for no reason, I don't see any great reason to do this just because it seems a little pointless; but since I basically never visit this page, my opinion should mean nothing. ~ magbatz 20:39, 3 May 2007 (UTC)


Even though the movie Coraline, the movie that TMBG is composing music for, isn't coming out until late 2008 or early 2009, is it too early to start a Coraline Soundtrack page? --My Evil Twin's Twin (9-26-07)

I made a preliminary page: Coraline. Looking back on the edit, I'm not sure if TMBG "were approached for the film" and I'm only guessing from the way TMBG and Gaiman and whoever talked about it that "all of the music seems to have already been completed." Also, Laika House, who created the Bastard Wants To Hit Me video, are involved in some way with Coraline, but since I didn't know what they were contributing, I left it off. ~ magbatz 21:23, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

15th Album[edit]

Where has the information regarding a 2009-2010 release for a new rock album come from? The idea is exciting, but I want to know what the source is, since I haven't found anything on this anywhere besides the reference on this page. Near 18:30, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

See the first news article here: 2008 Archived News#November 2008. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 19:45, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
ah, q beat me to it. i was just going to provide this link --ant 19:48, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Ah, thanks a lot, that clears that up. A very interesting and exciting read. Near 21:22, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
