Cleanup tag[edit]

I've put the {{Cleanup}} tag for a few reasons. First, the quotes should be split into Sourced/Unsourced sections (under which subsections can be used), and because the quotation marks around each quote should be removed. —LrdChaos 16:59, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

But, uh, all the quotes are sourced - they're all currently from songs, which are explicitly named, hence, "sourced". But I'm a Wikipedian by nature - if that's how you Wikiquoters roll, feel free to change it. I thought I'd brought it up to house style earlier; I guess I missed the quotes. (Looking around, that's really inconsistently applied, and many of the pages linked on the front page have quotation marks around the quotes.) Honestly, though, if I may be slightly critical, it seems like it would have been not much harder to improve the article by just removing the quotes rather than sticking a big ugly cleanup tag up top. (I for one am of the opinion that tags should be used very sparingly - though I agree that the first time it went up was quite justifiable, as I hadn't even really read closely over the style guidelines when I first created it.) Still, it's nice to see it got some attention, and I thank you for bringing specific objections to the talk page this time. Someone, quite probably me, will get rid of the quotation marks in jib time, I'm sure. 03:03, 31 May 2006 (UTC)


It appears that the page is sort of organized by topic, but all the "quotes" are direct lines from NC.HH lyrics. I was going to add a quote related to NC.HH, but didn't know where to put it. If a cleanup occurs, I think we need to start a non-lyrical section or something like that. - Uglinessman 20:59, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

addendum... I didn't realize that this page just barely got created, sorry if I seemed snarky. I'll keep an eye on the page and toss in the quote when the time seems right. - Uglinessman 21:01, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
That's an excellent point; I didn't even think about that. I mostly just tried to give examples of quotes from some of the songs mentioned in the Nerdcore hip hop article, and whatever others came immediately to mind as I was working. Please, be bold and reorganize it according to whatever seems the most logical structure. 03:03, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
