Lauren Greenfield[edit]

Why did you remove my contribution? That's very destructive. What's your problem with it?67.1.250.160 (talk) 06:48, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for reaching out about your most recent edit. In reviewing the edit, it looks like "and Jew" was added to the list of noun phrases used to describe Lauren Greenfield. The edit summary that you provided reads "we're always looking to tag em," which led me to believe that the edit was made as part of a malicious attempt to 'tag Jews.' If this was not the case, I apologize. However, given that Lauren's Jewish identity is not of central importance to her work, "Jew" does not particularly belong in the intro of the article. The article is already categorized appropriately in the following categories: "Jewish American artists" and "Jewish women artists." Yerkes-Dodson (talk) 06:57, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

No, you're correct. Wikipedia has a long tradition of identifying and categorizing Jews. In fact, people use this site to see if someone is a Jew. So we tag em as we see em! Are you new to Wikipedia?67.1.250.160 (talk) 07:17, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

The IP above is a troll. JACKINTHEBOXTALK 16:08, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Copy edit of Bruno Mars videography[edit]

Thanks for your copy edit of Bruno Mars videography. I made some additional changes to the article which you can review in the article's history. A few notes:

  • You fixed one typo of accolade but missed another; pay attention for that.
  • The possessive of Mars is Mars's MOS:POSS. If you find that too awkward, rephrase.
  • The video for "That's What I Like" features Mars dancing as several animations which move with him during his choreography, enacting the lyrics and music. A little awkward. I simplified as: The video for "That's What I Like" features Mars dancing as several animations move with him, enacting the lyrics.
  • "Finesse"'s music video was awarded at the 2018 Soul Train Music Awards and at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards for Video of the Year and Best Music Video, respectively. → The music video for "Finesse" was awarded Video of the Year at the 2018 Soul Train Music Awards and Best Music Video at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Simpler is often better. Good work! – Reidgreg (talk) 22:46, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

@Reidgreg: Thank you for the edits and feedback. I'll review these and pay attention to those errors moving forward. Yerkes-Dodson (talk) 22:56, 17 December 2019 (UTC)
