First-class cricket redlinks[edit]

Hi, thanks for the message. As not much is going on in the world of the Associates or Affiliates I thought I'd have a go at the your list that I came across. I was wondering if you'd be able to edit the Hampshire section to remove the blue links so only the red links are left. Thanks.AssociateAffiliate (talk) 23:13, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Yet another (deserved) barnstar...![edit]

Invisible Barnstar.png The Invisible Barnstar
For constantly surprising me when I search for an incredibly obscure cricketer, only to find you've already created an article for them... Keep it up, it's much appreciated! — AMBerry (talk) 18:47, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

...and that obscure cricketer on this occasion would be Selby Norton, which I've expanded a little bit! — AMBerry (talk) 18:47, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Durham redlinks[edit]

No problem! I had a look through the Durham CricketArchive players list and could find none missing. When there are new First-class/List-A players I'll try and create them when the new season starts. Now back to Hampshire players and waiting until anything of note in the world of the Affiliates and Associates happens. Now for the ICC to grant mighty Ireland Test status!AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:54, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Hampshire CB[edit]

That does them, I added the already created players to the HCB list, then put the "No names to add" tag to replace the players. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 23:35, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Hampshire redlinks[edit]

I'll get back onto those as soon as CricketArchive is back up, it has been down for the last two days. Besides, being snowed in in rural Hampshire means I have nothing else to do! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 09:27, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Citation you added to Lead paint does not say anything about lead causing hearing loss[edit]

Hi Bobo192. Thanks for all your edits to Wikipedia. But the citation you added to Lead paint in http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lead_paint&diff=prev&oldid=224431273 does not say anything about lead causing hearing loss. Could you please fix this? One easy way to fix it would be to remove the words "hearing loss" from the article. This seems like a fine plan. I don't know if lead causes hearing loss or not, but it would be fine to leave it out and only list the other awful problems that the CDC says that lead causes. Thanks in advance, --unforgettableid | talk 18:44, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Done and done - no worries. Apologies for my late reply, I've been so swamped in other things lately, that I have had no time to access Wikipedia. All the best. Bobo. 21:17, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
I see you fixed it now. Thank you. --unforgettableid | talk 20:20, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Hampshire redlinks[edit]

I'll try and get most of those actioned in the next week. I'm just out of hospital after an ankle operation so I'm pretty immobile which means I'll have plenty of time on my hands! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 10:06, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Nice to hear back from you Bobo! Those Hampshire redlinks are getting fewer and fewer each day, once I've done those I'll have a go at the Dorset ones. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:44, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Yep, been quite some effort! Takes my mind off of the problems in my life at the moment, so I'm happy doing it. Just going through the pre-county club scorecards and creating/tagging players. Added about 50 names to the Hampshire cricketers category this way. Might make 800+ names in the category! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 13:10, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Notable?[edit]

[1]. - Kittybrewster 11:46, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Hampshire redlinks[edit]

Final push, now under 25 redlinks to do, plus give or take 10-20 pre-county club players. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 16:42, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Hampshire redlinks done! Just comparing the Hampshire CricketArchive and adding any that have been missed out, then I'll finish the pre-county club players. Should make 850 cricketers, roughly. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 23:16, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Dorset redlinks[edit]

I'll get those finished in the next week or so, then have a crack at a few Berkshire cricketers. Regards, AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:36, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

One Event people[edit]

Hi, I proposed KR Desai, JE King, D. Gamit, SK Desai, J. Desai, P. Balsara, Y. Angalia, Essof Ashroff, Chandulal Banker, Deepak Banker, Ziauddin (cricketer), Taufiq Ahmed, Mohammad Hanif (cricketer), Talat Ahmed, Ijaz Saeed, Mohammad Ansari, Anjub Botawala, Mukesh Desai, Bharat Desai (cricketer), Nilesh Chaudhary, Subhash Bhatt, Prem Bhatia, Raju Bhatt (Gujarat cricketer), Rashid Saleem, Geoff Evans (cricketer), Fakir Dungryia, Chiranjit Dhir, Christopher Edwards (cricketer), Dipak Patel (cricketer, born 1961) for deletion because there is no significant coverage for them and their claim to notability is always only one event. Regards Hekerui (talk) 13:58, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Dorset cricketers[edit]

All done! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 18:12, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

A request for help (which I think is easy)[edit]

I'm trying to clear out the backlog of Category:Requests to move a userspace draft. A request arrived today here. I can figure out what to do in many situations, but I stay away from bands, video games and footballers, as the guidelines for notability are well-established, but I'm not conversant with them. I'll be happy to take care of the move and the follow up, but I;m not in a position to know whether Maxamed Maalimey meets the Notability threshold. I see that you are busy, if you cannot look at this, I'll try another member of Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Members, unless you want to suggest one.--SPhilbrickT 19:35, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the prompt response. I plan to inform the editor, and suggest the editor check in at the wikiproject. I'll leave you a courtesy copy, but nothing more needed from you at this time.--SPhilbrickT 19:49, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Link to editor response, again, this is a courtesy note, no need for action.--SPhilbrickT 19:58, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Returning your call[edit]

Hi Bobo - good to hear from you. As I go through the seasons I am checking the players and so far have not come across any more missing - apart from one redlink in a recent season which now seems to have been filled. As for Atif, we will see what happens. Regards Motmit (talk) 21:54, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Just picked up this missing player.Andrew Watts Regards Motmit (talk) 18:55, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Redlink idea[edit]

Go for it! Sounds like a great way to keep track of what has been done, particularly for those John Smiths out there! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 10:03, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Excellent, will make doing the redlinks a hell of a lot easier! I've been going through and amending some redlinks and bluelinks which lead to the wrong people. Wonder how many English first-class and List-A players are left to do? AssociateAffiliate (talk) 21:00, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Re: PROD[edit]

No worries, just going by WP:CRIC! Cracking on with Berkshire cricketers, nearly done them. Another week and the List-A ones will be done, then just a case of looking through the archives to find notable players who have represented them in MC cricket. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 18:23, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Lets hope in 50 years or so that cricket has grown to such an extent they can be seen as notable. Although given the ICC's regression in terms of the Associates, I somewhat doubt that :( AssociateAffiliate (talk) 09:00, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Re: Slovenian cricketer[edit]

All is good here, hopefully the same with yourself. How many English first-class cricketer you think we've got to get done in total? AssociateAffiliate (talk) 18:49, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Wow.... would never have guessed it was that many. Has to be at least 1500 on the second, the Minor Counties and Cricket Boards have to make nearly a 1000. Not to mention MCC and University cricketers and players who represented XI's and other first-class teams. 6000 at least! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:19, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Berkshire redlinks[edit]

All done! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 18:33, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Wiltshire! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:09, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Wiltshire cricketers[edit]

All done! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 18:06, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Re:prod[edit]

No worries. I suspect that notability criteria may be different on the German wikipedia for pre-Bundesliga footballers. Of course I have no problem keeping the articles if there was more verifiable information that these players are notable.

I went ahead and created an AfD. It's here if there's anything you want to discuss about the deletion. J Mo 101 (talk) 20:52, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Re:Women's List A cricketers[edit]

Sounds cool. That would be great, get working on them once I have Cambridgeshire done - I'll pass it onto Harrias as well who seems to be cracking on with some women's articles! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 09:45, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

No rush lol. Will take me an age to get most of the Minor counties cricketers done. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 12:27, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

User:Bobo192/First-class players lists 001-010[edit]

This is wonderful stuff. I've just knocked up a quick stub for Ian Hutchinson (cricketer), a player I much admired. A suggestion - a short bit of text at the top of each of your list pages explaining the way it's laid out, would be helpful. For example, I think you've put them in reverse chronological order of first appearance... but I'm guessing. --Dweller (talk) 11:04, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the heads up Bobo. Will AfD that article, even AfDing the non first-class cricketers I created!!! With the players I have completed from your lists, I'm now organising them to lists like List of Dorset CCC players. Just got to work out a way to do the first-class teams. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:26, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Interview request[edit]

"WikiProject Report" would like to focus on WikiProject Cricket for an article for The Signpost. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? If so, here are the questions for the interview. Just add your response below each question and feel free to skip any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Thanks and I take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy New Year! – SMasters (talk) 07:15, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Re:Cheers[edit]

Yep, we're hitting the nail on the head with those ones now. We finally reached a consensus on WT:CRIC about what denotes a cricketer as notable. Those who have appeared in WCL Div 5 and above are now notable, those below or who haven't appeared in the WCL are not. Youth ODI and Test cricketers remain non-notable. Hopefully that will put paid to all the months of confusion within the project! Now we're putting in/replacing infoboxes on articles and removing those who don't meet notability as we go. Regards, AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:17, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

All your lists got a mention!!! Hopefully 5 years down the line most of the names will be blue.... just maybe! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:31, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Buckinghamshire redlinks[edit]

That's all the Buckinghamshire redlinks done (well the last Ronald Hooker has been started if not done!), just a few more to go on most others on that page. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 18:50, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

That's it. I think I've got all the Minor Counties to have at least 100 players listed under their category (apart from Wales MC and Herefordshire). Think there's also under 150 Minor counties players to go. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 12:03, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

More Barnstars!!![edit]

Userpage barnstar.svg The Excellent User Page Award
Congrats!!! Bobherry (talk) 19:31, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Redlinks[edit]

That's in recent weeks all the Staffordshire, Wales MC and Suffolk redlinks completed. Possibly under 100 Minor counties cricketers left to do, will have a count. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 17:06, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

How many English cricketers in total does that leave to do? AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:01, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
That's Northumberland done. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 17:36, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
Oxfordshire done. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 21:36, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
All Herefordshire cricketers done. That includes everyone who has played for the county since 1992 and is deemed notable. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 10:29, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
All notable Bucks cricketers done - 244 in total. Dorset next! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:05, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Retiring[edit]

I don't think I have the motivation nowdays to create/update articles anymore. That's not to say I won't come back in the future, but I wish you well and hope to see some more of those many obscure cricketers getting articles in the future! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:05, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

No, not at all Bobo. It's for personal reasons. I might get the motivation back next week or next year! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:17, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
I guess I can find ways to motivate myself, I'll give it another go! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 12:53, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

To do[edit]

Any significant reduction in the number of English cricketers to do? AssociateAffiliate (talk) 21:18, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Bobo. Nearly 400 in 3 months, not too bad. Should be all done in just under 2 years at that rate, although I'm leaving the 100 matches, 400 wickets, 10,000 runs ones to last, so they'll take longer to do. The Minor counties List A cricketers are down to 42 to go, with a handful being of the loads of wickets and runs description. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 21:44, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
The project has them all covered. Shame most of the single match players have been done, I used to love those. Nice and quick to create! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 21:50, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Cull[edit]

Hey Bobo. Culling some Namibian cricketers that fail WP:CRIN. Sorry!!! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:42, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Cleared[edit]

I've done the third page of English counties. Also, could you lend a vote to this? Thanks Bobo. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 13:59, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Update[edit]

That's Cambridgeshire done. Would you be able to tell me if the other pages have dramatically decreased since the last count? Hope all is well. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:50, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Bobo. So give or take an error margin of say 5, that's roughly 2,850 to do. Might be done by 2015! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 20:58, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
I had that exact same thought when doing Hugh Smith, though his only appearance was a little more successful than the Kent chaps! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 21:01, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

All done/started[edit]

I've created stub articles for the last of the minor counties cricketers, so that's them all done. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:15, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Adam Harrison[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Adam Harrison requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

A barnstar for you![edit]

Tireless Contributor Barnstar Hires.gif The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
I don't know why I haven't given you a barnstar thus far! So here is one for making the brilliant redlinked players lists, which without such a resource it would take far longer to create player articles. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 13:40, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
I'm looking to get 8,000 names in the English cricketers categories, mostly been getting there via Sussex. Think it's under 50 to go till that landmark. The lists are more than useful, when all the players are done they'll serve as archive to show how many we created! The end of the year has been fruitful, I'll be back in work with the NHS in early January, so the amount I'll create will slow, but I'll still create them! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:58, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Update[edit]

I've got the Category:English cricketers to contain 8000 names, so that's one target I set myself to get done before the end of the year which has been reached! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 16:48, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

It was Albert Brown. It's 8001 now as Simon Kerrigan was missing the category! AssociateAffiliate (talk) 17:04, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

What's the numbers[edit]

You'll have to pass on your tip of how you count how many names are left to do! On the subject, has there been much of a change since the beginning of December? AssociateAffiliate (talk) 19:54, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Bobo192,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chlopeck (talkcontribs) 13:21, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Sam Redgate[edit]

I was on the cricket forum page and followed the to-do link to User:Bobo192/First-class players lists 011-020. I think I can save you one in the Notts section because I'm sure your "redlink" to Samuel Redgate would duplicate Sam Redgate. He was a famous bowler. Hope this helps. --86.174.153.67 (talk) 08:01, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

No problem. I'd be interested in helping out if I can. What are the "many other benefits" of creating an account rather than using the IP address and can anyone join the cricket project? Thanks. --86.174.153.67 (talk) 10:23, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the information, Bobo. I'll look around to see what interests me and where I could contribute. I'll let you know if I register a name. --86.174.153.67 (talk) 13:46, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello again, Bobo. As you can see, I've registered. I'll join the cricket and football projects and have a good look around. I will try to help with some of the missing players although it looks as if you already have a full set of Yorkshire players who would be my strongest suit. Thanks again for your help. --Brian 21:27, 28 February 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by BrianDeeG (talkcontribs)

New tactic[edit]

As I would here for the next decade writing detailed entries for some of the cricketers which are left, if they have had long career (60+ matches), then I'm just going to create the article with name, dob, batting/bowling styles and an infobox (like at Paul Todd (cricketer)), that way I can knock them off more quickly, then come back to them later.

Alexander Allen (cricketer)[edit]

Hi Bobo. Hope you're well. Just a quick note to say I've put a PROD on this one because it seems to duplicate Sandy Allen (cricketer), and in the various parallel improvements since the two articles were started, the other one seems to have acquired a bit more info than this one. Johnlp (talk) 11:28, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

OK. Seems to have been done like that anyway, which is sensible. Thanks. Johnlp (talk) 18:04, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

New list format[edit]

Hi Bobo. Your new format seems fine to me and the collapsibles seem to work as intended. I've changed the links in my chronological list in the CRIC to-do section and mentioned there that is a clear crossover between your lists and mine re the players active to 1850 (especially Sussex, Kent and Surrey). Good work. We'll get there someday. ----Jack | talk page 12:22, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

re: Redlinks[edit]

Thanks! Happy to help with filling them in. Noticed you have a couple of lists in your userspace - don't know if there's any over-lap between them. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 06:55, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Request to take part in a survey[edit]

Hi there. I would very much appreciate it if you could spend ~2 minutes and take a short survey - a project trying to understand why the most active Wikipedia contributors (such as yourself) may reduce their activity, or retire. I sent you an email with details, if you did not get it please send me a wikiemail, so that I can send you an email with the survey questions. I would very much appreciate your cooperation, as you are among the most active Wikipedia editors who show a pattern of reduced activity, and thus your response would be extremely valuable. Thanks! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 13:00, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Cricket lists[edit]

Hi Bobo. I've linked all the cricket lists of English FC teams together with a template (see the footer on List of Essex CCC players, for example). Please feel free to expand this template to include other lists. Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 07:39, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Don't know about the Derbyshire list - I just added the template to it! Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 12:05, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi again. From all your redlink lists, do you have any FC cricketers who were 100 yrs old or older, who don't yet have Wiki articles? People with def. birth and death dates to back this up? No worries if you don't have this info to hand. Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 06:31, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Numbers[edit]

Hey Bobo, hope all is well. Nice 5-0 Ashes whitewash on the cards at least! Wouldn't be able to give an update on the English redlinks would you? Thanks. Howzat?Out!Out!Out! (talk) 16:46, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Returning thanks[edit]

I think it's a nice little feature... though I use it pretty sparingly. Anyway I liked your comment on the WT:CRIC page: some people don't seem to consider that there might be good reasons why we do what we do (like keeping it simple!). Johnlp (talk) 11:23, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Maybe you should add your mischievous thought to the "discussion" at the foot of the WT:CRIC page currently... how about a List of Test cricketers who have taken no wickets on debut? ;) Johnlp (talk) 11:43, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
