Yes you are right regarding the title of Clinic

Thanks for flagging the trolling in the Forum. I've created a "clean" setlist.

Was this tour named: RIP 2006-2016 ?
Album name so album era and tour art matches album art. Also "farewell" (at the time) tour so seems possible.
Was researching the trolled setlist and the name came up in tour art

In theory there could be another song named Ballad of a Thin Man.
E.g. Tunnel of Love is both a Springsteen and Dire Straits original, so if someone else does a song with that name and you give the Wikipedia page to either artist without any mention of the performing artist, would this be acceptable?

There might be more groups who have a song called No Expectations, so instead of the wikipedia link where there is no reference to Six By Seven https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/six-by-seven/1998/la-rotonde-sint-joost-ten-noode-saint-josse-ten-noode-belgium-13cf39c5.html#sfmsesg5bca7b3c use a link in future where it is clear Six By Seven covered that song e.g.


When asking about the Ben Folds improvisations on the setlist page, it's possible this may never be seen by the person who mentioned these. Comments are only seen if you choose the option to be warned if something has changed on the setlist. So it may be better to contact the person through his profile page.
Thanks for trying to modify these and other setlists.

Capitalisation can mean anything for a new user. So it's better to use *the reason* why you changed it.
I didn't say your edit was wrong, I just told you a valid source, which you promised to use.
If you come across such mistakes which take you a lot of time, you can tell any mod so he can perform a batch edit.

Quote. At the time of my edits, "Not the Same" had 568 entries on the site, while "Not The Same" had 14. So I changed the 14 to match the 568, combining them to make a total of 582 entries for that song. Are you suggesting that I should not have done this??

No worries if you follow up your promise.
I apologise for not providing enough information in my recent edit(s). I enjoy contributing to this website and I certainly don't mean to get the process wrong or attempt to "bypass" the comment box. I was under the mistaken impression that this box was basically an idiot test to make sure that people knew what they were doing and the edits were transparent; I didn't realise I had to provide a detailed source each time I changed anything. I'm frustrated that I had to be reprimanded for this as I only seek to be one of the good guys on this site. I'll ensure that I give more information in future.

Corrected cover song info is not a valid source, just a statement.
I noticed you mentioned just what you did on setlists to bypass the mandatory edit comment feature.
"Be sure to explain why you edited the setlist. Don't explain what you've edited as this is obvious to the viewer."
