I'm moving this to "When The Pawn", since the article states that is the more common name.

Though it would be fun to use the full title as page name. SQB 16:32, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
Not only would it be fun, it would be downright appropriate to at least have a redirect page. Imageine someone thinking he has to type in the real title only to find out that the page does not exist. How unfair! Any volunteers? Mütze 21:44, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
I tried, but the title is too long for the Wikipedia software ("Bad Title"). See for yourself: [1]. Cheers :-) Sergeyy 22:04, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Revert, revert, revert. This was absolutely the wrong thing to do. Move policy insists that you never move one article to another via cut and paste. If the target article exists, you must request a move so that an administrator can do the "overwrite" and transfer the editing history of the article. (The way it was left, it was as if Drdr1989 just wrote the page in one fell swoop.) Regardless, moving to When The Pawn... is wrong, because it should be When the Pawn... per naming conventions. Personally, I don't see what the ellipsis adds to the name, but I do know some fans are really anal about having typography oh-just-so (see P!nk and Korn), that's a shrug to me. But the more important issue is that cut-and-paste is the wrong choice for this move; please follow the appropriate procedure. --Dhartung | Talk 05:07, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Aaaaah, I just fixed all the links, now we have lots of double redirects again. Mütze 10:16, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Sorry for the confusion; guess I'll read the WP:NAME next time. If the more proper title is in fact "When The Pawn" (even though I find that hard to believe) then that is OK. That aside, the main reason for revert should be that, not the naming convention hoopla since 1) anyone can see what the "one fell swoop" was a result of, and 2) anyone could have reverted it, THEN followed the "conventional" way.

The page title should be the abbreviated name with ellipses. The title of the album (the first section below the page title) should the the full name of the album, otherwise theres a danger people wont know what the full title is - and that is probably the most common thing people will come to this page to discover Paraphrased (talk) 23:26, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

CD image[edit]

The cover image being used in here is up for speedy deletion, and to avoid that I added fair use to the image page for this article. I also informed the original uploader of what I have done. Let me know if more action is required.

2012 Spin Magazine Article[edit]

I thought it might be a nice addition to add what Fiona said about When the Pawn... from this particular article. "I was more in control, and I felt like I could do what I wanted to do, which is probably a good influence of Paul [Thomas Anderson, director of Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood], who I was with then, because he is — in the best way — cocky. And I think that rubbed off on me. Like 'Yeah, of course I can do whatever I want.' "[2] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cometfleur (talkcontribs) 13:49, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

The title in the body of the article should be the title. There is no reason otherwise. --2604:2000:14C6:88A3:E4C9:5538:BCBF:8BB1 (talk) 15:28, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
