Article status[edit]

With D.C. United now actively seeking a stadium in neighboring Prince George's County, Maryland instead of D.C., the Poplar Point Stadium idea may well be dead. Should this article be deleted or folded into one for a prospective Prince George's County soccer stadium? EvWill (talk) 22:58, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Projected Construction and Opening[edit]

As of this writing, the chances for a PG County Soccer Stadium are slim. Therefore, I changed the status of the stadium's breaking ground from "projected" to "tentative." DAK4Blizzard (talk) 19:25, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Careful with Citations[edit]

Unfortunately, an article from nbcwashington.com that had been cited is gone and can no longer be found. I tried searching the website's archive, but the archive only goes back to less than a year ago. The moral of the story: try to use newspapers or magazines as sources instead of local news websites. And regardless of the source, please state the author, title and date of the source so that it might be tracked down in a general online search should it get deleted from a particular website.

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

    Triggered by (?<=[/@.])examiner\.com(?:[:/?\x{23}]|$) on the local blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

Coords[edit]

The coordinates at the top of the article point to the original Poplar Point location; can we get those updated to the new Buzzard Point site? Radagast (talk) 03:17, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
