Talk:2002 in music


I dislike the "<- xxxx in music | ( yyyy ) | zzzz in music ->". It looks awful. Would this be better as "See also: xxxx in music, yyyy in general, zzz in music."? -- SGBailey 17:44 Dec 23, 2002 (UTC)

Is there an arrow character? That would be the ticket. But yeah, the <- is hardly aesthetically pleasing.

- Tubby

There are &larr and &rarr. -- Zoe

In mathematics articles we often use -> (edit the page to see how this is done). <- and -> look better than <- and -> on all browsers I've tried, and unlike ← and → they do actually work on all browsers. --Zundark 20:46 Dec 23, 2002 (UTC)

I've tried the <tt> on 2002 (only) and it looks better but not good. The entire line looks too geeky. I really do prefer a textual approach such as my original suggestion, however I'm not (too) fussy about the details. I don't like the arrows, the pipes or the parentheses. -- SGBailey 22:54 Dec 23, 2002 (UTC)

Small question

Hey, is that list of top selling 10 albums actually accurate? Looks very fishy to me.... --

Yeah, we should put a source on that. - Tubby

Changed it to that from a citable source that also looked like it probably had sane data, namely -- nknight 00:29 Jan 9, 2003 (UTC)
Here's the list that WAS on the page:
  1. Korn - Untouchables
  2. Queens Of The Stone Age - Songs For The Deaf
  3. Sum 41 - Does This Look Infected?
  4. Beck - Sea Chage
  5. Crazy Town - Darkhorse
  6. System of a Down - Steal This Album
  7. Audioslave - Audioslave
  8. Red Hot Chili Peppers - By The Way
  9. Soundtrack - 8 Mile
  10. Various Artists - Now That's What I Call Music! Vol. 11

The top selling albums needs to state a geographic area. Is this the USA or the world? -- Hotlorp

I think that was Billboard, so it's USA. You can specify it if you want, I'm just not sure I see the need unless somebody can point us at reliable data for sales outside the U.S. --nknight 03:38 Jan 13, 2003 (UTC)
