What happened here?[edit]

It was going fine. Twentieth and Twenty-First Century "Classical" (i.e. "Western Art") Music need a lot of work and all that the Mother project cares about is C19th and backwards as far as I can tell. No wonder the kids hate "classical" music! Any one going to help me or am I on my own? — Iadmctalk  15:58, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

It's a struggle, and there's much work still to be done. I took an absence of nearly a year from Wikipedia at one point – I needed a break from all the infobox fighting. When I came back the contemporary music project had been converted into a task force (whatever that means), but the project banner redirect hadn't been set up properly, so all the articles that were in the contemporary music project were transferred to the classical music project but not the contemporary music task force. I've been correcting the banners by hand whenever I come across them, but there must be many many more to do. Oh, and when I came back after my year's absence people were still putting more effort into arguing about infoboxes than into improving articles and coverage. I think we've lost a few editors, but there are still some working away quietly and doing much good work. I still try to check in most days, but my visits are often brief and amount to no more than reverting the odd bit of vandalism. --Deskford (talk) 23:54, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
Quite... OK: we edit as and when, then... Twentieth century classical music certainly needs a lot of work. And infoboxes might be MADE mandatory (the opposite problem we all had...) Great. See you around. — Iadmctalk  15:32, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Draft:Zubin Kanga Submission Advice[edit]

I submitted this draft of an article about an experimental pianist I think is important enough for a wiki page months ago and it still hasn't been reviewed. Does anybody have any advice? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Zubin_Kanga Thanks Georgery Kempe (talk) 12:42, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
