The Charts section[edit]

The charts section of this article has been removed as of 2014.

This never should have happened. I cannot simply hit "undo" due to subsequent edits. To be inkeeping with the series of wikipedia entries to which this belongs, the charts section needs to be replaced. Crimsone (talk) 16:51, 16 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Crimsone, a decision was taken that for every year from 2000 onwards the charts section was moved to its own article, in this case 2000 in British music charts, because the parent article was becoming too long. Unfortunately, there are editors who feel the need to provide a detailed chart commentary on each week of the chart, so that even these spin-off articles are becoming insanely long.

Hence the chart summary, as per articles right the way back from the 80's, should be present. Anything more detailed than what the number 1s for singles and albums were is probably overkill, but there's a pattern present in other articles that should be consistent across the subject.

I agree with you – I think you can have a section of a couple of paragraphs which gives an overview of the year and any major musical events that occurred that year (e.g. the introduction of downloads to the chart in 2004, or the Spice Girls phenomenon in 1996) but I look at the "summary" in 2014 in British music charts and think "what is the point?"... nobody cares who the highest climber in Week 37 that year was. It's probably something that needs a RfC to determine consensus. Richard3120 (talk) 21:49, 16 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
