Welcome to the community! Let me know if I can help. --Casey Parsons (talk) 16:16, 3 March 2015 (EST)

Casey - thank you so much. I have gotten to work this morning (while listening to a Grandma's Boys albums I just had come in yesterday) on adding recordings starting with the 1960 champs (Evans Quartet) and working my way towards the 80s. I have used the discogs.com links (I created those pages as well) as references for each album I am adding to the lists. Once I get done with that, I'm going to start looking at individual quartets who have pages already created. I appreciate your offer and I may take you up on that. I have made a couple hundred edits on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Satan165) so I have the hang of formatting again after I did a quick refresher. I really hope my contributions here are as valued to others as they are to me - I think the redundancy of having the info on here as well as discogs is the most important thing...I cannot name a single website or reference of any kind that catalogs these mountains (of almost entirely private press releases) so I had to make it myself! Thanks again! --satan165 08:00, 6 March 2015 (CST)

I just saw your user account page, I think I might be able to help you out a bit. I wrote a parsing script to grab all the quartet names in this wiki, all of the singers attributed to them, and all the championships they've won. The information can be exported however you like, so if you'd like a custom table put together, let me know, and I can set up a page for it. Or, if you're familiar with Python, the code is available on Github if you'd like to tinker.
Here's a couple samples of what it is exporting at the moment:
I've also been experimenting with generating stub pages for all the quartets that didn't already have a page. You might want to check out my work-in-progress template and sample generated stub. I wanted to include a discography, but I wasn't sure how to find a loadable database of albums to automatically link the information to quartets and choruses. If you have any suggestions there, I'd love to hear them. :-) :--Phydeaux (talk) 20:33, 25 October 2015 (EDT)
