Disambiguation link notification for September 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ford Field, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Big Three. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Oops. I was distracted and saw something that said it was over and I didn't take time to verify it. Sorry again.Equineducklings (talk) 03:33, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Jeremy Hill (baseball)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Jeremy Hill (baseball), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.spokeo.com/Jeremy+Hill+1.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship[edit]

Regarding your live match edits at the U-20 Championship article, I've never seen such edits performed during matches before today. Even last week, I had not noticed articles being updated during the match. I presume that a big reason for that is that it makes it more tedious to review an article's history if necessary. I understand that there isn't a true consensus regarding in-match updates of articles (WP:LIVESCORES technically doesn't apply to WP:FOOTY), but it seems to me to violate the spirit of WP:NOTNEWS. That said, I will no longer revert such edits in that article as it is not in anyone's interest for edit wars to begin, especially over what amounts to minor details. Happy editing! — Jkudlick tcs 05:23, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

WP:NOTNEWS doesn't apply here. Simply being recent doesn't necessarily make something news. The "spirit" of WP:NOTNEWS is to prevent editors from using WP to aggregate things that are recent, not necessarily notable, and potentially transient. I'll focus on the last bit, because I think that the consensus is that the goals are notable (since nearly every football event article lists goals scored). In the case of mid-match scores (vs. listing the goals and who scored them), the mid-match score lacks permanence, and therefore is news. The goals themselves, however, are not transient. If "A. Footballer" and "B. Footballer" both score, and the current score is 1-1 as a result, the 1-1 score is news because it could change before the match is completed (which is why I didn't add the score itself). However, the fact that "A. Footballer" and "B. Footballer" scored will not change, and therefore isn't news. Bmf 051 (talk) 06:19, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
That is a valid point that I had not previously considered, and it makes perfect sense. Thank you. — Jkudlick tcs 08:21, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
