Thank you, GL, for the cookies. I've been reading and trying to edit for a while, but I'm really still a newbie. In fact, I've learned a great deal in just the last two weeks. I know my limitations, as they say, but will always try to follow the rules. Thanks, again!BillVol (talk) 04:24, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Re: Luis Alamos[edit]

The reason transfermarkt, the reference I removed, is not reliable is the same reason Wikipedia itself is not a reliable source. The site's database is user-edited, meaning it counts as a self-published source. I hope that clarifies things. Sir Sputnik (talk) 00:40, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

I was going to say the same thing: That Wikipedia itself is not reliable for the exact same reason. To me, this is one of many things Wikipedia I disagree with. There are many self-published websites that are more reliable than many not self-published. There are many newspapers that print stories that are not even edited at all (therefore "user-edited," in a way). If this is a rule, then it is one I don't like.BillVol (talk) 02:01, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
