Hi, you’ve made some very helpful changes to the lead, but your insistence on including a tiny label that is rarely (if ever) mentioned in overviews of James's career (and not even naming it, implicitly admitting that it’s not significant enough to mention!) is inane. He recorded for several other labels during that time too, and you’ve not bothered to mention those—rightly, because it’d be silly. Include those details in the article body. gentlecollapse6 (talk) 00:22, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
- Clearly, Gentlecollapse6 we differ on this. Fine. Your presumption of ownership, however, is not appropriate, and neither is pretending to be making accusations of edit warring while in fact actively instigating an edit war yourself. Do not do this again. The appropriate place to discuss content disputes is generally the article talk page. It will be helpful in discussion if you refrain from seeking to dictate what is "compromise". I.e. in this case: I think a brief mention of how artist emerged from free party scene and gained fame/recognition is at least as notable as an "inane" recounting of which aliases he was recording under in which years, when he signed to Warp etc, and hence should be included in the lead. You do not. Not including it is not compromise. I suggest you respond on the article talk page. Cambial Yellowing❧ 01:50, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Aphex Twin, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Orbital (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
A barnstar for you!

I'm not going to pursue the Charity v Think-tank argument but are you sure that they really describe themselves as a think-tank? I haven't looked but it is a very tabloidish phrase so best you check as you wrote it. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 12:13, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
- Yes. As to the sentence, John Maynard Friedman, I think it is now clunky, and prefer simply "charity" given that that is what it is precisely defined as in law and in British English. I did not revert in order to accommodate the concerns you expressed in your edit summary. Cambial foliage❧ 12:44, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
- and I'm not arguing because technically you are correct. I just worry that the rest of the world understands the word 'charity' as on organisation that feeds the hungry and tends the sick. (Think of the Sally Anny commenting on the Offside Rule). I won't pursue it but shan't be surprised if someone else does. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 13:54, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
wiki markup in original source?
I'm surprised by this edit, which restores the rather unsightly [[John F. Kennedy] construction. I take it the actual source contains a reference to Kennedy which doesn't use his name? Eelworm (talk) 19:43, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
- It's a direct quote hence why it sits in the quote parameter. I explained the reason in the subsequent edit. Cambial foliage❧ 19:54, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

Re: Edit summary
Hi, I noticed that you reverted my edit. Two things: I was restoring an old sentence, and, as you can see, my name is Denis and my Irish passport has my name as Denis (English) and Donnchadh (Irish). Regards Denisarona (talk) 14:55, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

I don't particularly care whether this release is classified as by AFX or Aphex Twin as they're all the same dude in the end, but we should be consistent across all articles. The article refers to it as by AFX, not Aphex Twin, and as I said in my revert summary, James's own website prefaces it as by his AFX moniker here. The only sources I'm seeing stating the contrary from a quick Google search are Discogs (and they're not reliable per WP:USERG) and uploads of its tracks on websites. Ss112 20:45, 8 July 2021 (UTC)
