Hi Carlos Rojas77, Thank you for contributing to Luis Suárez article, I would kindly encourage to reduce the references at Luis Suarez's article in Barcelona Section since there are same news on different media with multiple reliable source, It looks terrible. But keep it as one reference on end of fullstops in Barcelona section please. Thank You --Prince Sulaiman (talk) 07:49, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

You seem to be[edit]

A dedicated editor at the Suarez article. You might consider (as you have already begun) a thorough review of the lede. I would first check each factual statement to ensure it also appears in the main body, and if and where it does, the citations should (and can only) appear in the main body, and needn't appear in the lede. This, and continuing to ask "What are the most revealing of his accomplishments and awards, so suitable to the lede", and removing any references where two or more appear, where the additional references do not add to the verifiability or integrity of the cited fact. Taken together, this will help the article move toward having a very good lede. Cheers, Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 09:22, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis[edit]

I would like a WP:RS to prove that "motor neurone disease" is ever used in American English, and that it's not British English. And it would have been more courteous if you had discussed it in Talk first before reverting it. --Nbauman (talk) 21:33, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Spam referencing[edit]

Hello. Following on from this conversation, I've been working on removing the last few links to the site mentioned from articles before it gets blacklisted, and was advised here to remove the http bit from live links to the site in talk pages. You'll see from this list that there's one link in your sandbox, I imagine it came from an older version of the Ronaldinho article. I'm not going to interfere with your sandbox myself, but you might want to take the http off the front of the url yourself next time you edit in there. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 16:05, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Johan Cruyff - Peres quote[edit]

I notice you reinstated the Peres quote in the Johan Cruyff content, referencing the Cruyff Foundation - do you mind if I remove the quote, leaving the ref? Peres is a controversial figure, having nothing to do with football, whose opinion in this context is not quoteworthy; the quote itself is at best anodyne and unduly dominates the rest of the section.

October 2014[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on El Clásico. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
If another user is edit warring it is best to report them and not to continue the dispute. The issue doesnta ppear to be a BLP issue so should be taken to the talk page, I will be requesting page protection so it might be beter left alone until a consensus can be reached so that it doesnt appear that you are adding to the issue. I do support your removal but it would be best to not run the risk of getting blocked as well. Amortias (T)(C) 21:54, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

El Clásico[edit]

There's only been one edit so far. Give it a while and see what happens. User:CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), sunasuttuq 18:45, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

November 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at El Clásico. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block.

You are getting dangeroulsy close to this happening again. I would strongly advise that you take it to the talk page and let someone else sort this mess out, I'm going to go request page protection (again) Amortias (T)(C) 21:26, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Zidane[edit]

The 'BBC greatest European footballer of all time' - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/europe/3764063.stm vote won by Zidane is a completely different award from the 'UEFA best European footballer of the previous 50 years' poll - http://www.uefa.com/newsfiles/171606.pdf. As you can see in the links, even the top-10s are different. Hence only one being mentioned is not 'sufficient', as it does not give any idea regarding the other.

The difference is the same as between a World Soccer Player of the Year and FIFA World Player of the Year (one being from a publication while the other is from a football governing body). Therefore, since both are retained, same should be the case with the BBC and UEFA awards.

El Pais is a publication award, like World Soccer Player of the Year. Link - http://www.rsssf.com/miscellaneous/sam-eupoy.html. I have added this to the external sources on the El Pais page.

If you just want to go by official awards, Ballon d'Or was never originally an official award either i.e. it wasn't awarded by a football governing body, it was an honour awarded by the publication France Football.

Hence, please revert your reverts on my edits.

Deleting my valid references in "El Clasico"[edit]

My actions were perfectly fit with Wikipedia's criteria, an Sports Media source, from a legaly registered company within Spain, with a writer's article: Who even HAS witnesses from Barcelona's team in the day of the match.

Edit war warning[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Cristiano Ronaldo–Lionel Messi rivalry shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jkudlick (talkcontribs) 18:55, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for your input; I'll keep that in mind when editing in the future. I hope you don't mind but I would like to rephrase some of the material I had added to the "Weah" article, and incorporate it under a "Style of play" subheading, but in a more objective manner.

December 2014[edit]

Nike[edit]

The reference you added on the Nike page doesn't confirm that pronunciation at all; in fact, it actually says there is a "correct way to pronounce the brand's name." Wolfdog (talk) 02:00, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

It refers to the other pronunciation, but essentially labels it a mistake. Perhaps other sources will be found. I speak General American English and I've only ever heard it pronounced with the two syllables. Do you come from elsewhere? Maybe the one-syllable pronunciation originates from outside of the U.S. Wolfdog (talk) 02:11, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Ah yes. Now that I go on Forvo I see that the only British speaker pronounces it your way, in stark contrast to everyone else on that site. I am beginning to suspect (along with the fact that a UK periodical -- The Guardian -- would have to tell people how to pronounce "Nike," which Americans wouldn't require, since we already say it with 2 syllables as far as I've ever known) that your pronunciation is a uniquely British one. Wolfdog (talk) 02:18, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, so it's dialectal then. And you've heard the one-syllable pronunciation in Irish and Australian speakers then? Wolfdog (talk) 02:43, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

FIFA Ballon d'Or[edit]

Hi, again. I just wanted to inquire about what the issue was regarding the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo not only has equalled Zidane and Ronaldo with 3 FIFA Awards, but also Cruyff, Platini and van Basten with 3 Ballon d'Or Awards? The FIFA Ballon d'Or is technically recognised as both, so I don't really think it's anything libelous or unverified; even UEFA states that Cristiano Ronaldo has tied Platini, etc. I also remember when Messi won the 2011 Award, there was widespread news regarding the fact that he had equalled Platini by winning 3 consecutive Ballon d'Or Awards, and that he was also only the third payer to win three FIFA Awards. I think both should be included, as they are equally important individual achievements. Thanks, best regards.

Messirulez (talk) 01:19, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

P.S. I've been trying to trim down some of the "Style of play" sections in certain articles!


http://www.uefa.com/memberassociations/association=esp/news/newsid=2201717.html

http://www.fifa.com/ballon-dor/news/y=2015/m=1/news=ronaldo-kessler-low-and-kellermann-triumph-at-fifa-ballon-d-or-2014-2505871.html


I understand that, but even FIFA (http://m.fifa.com/ballon-dor/news/y=2015/m=1/news=ronaldo-kessler-low-and-kellermann-triumph-at-fifa-ballon-d-or-2014-2505871.html) acknowledge that their Ballon d'Or Award is still regarded as a newer, more developed version of the previous Ballon d'Or Award, and their website also state that this is Cristiano Ronaldo's third Ballon d'Or Award, and that he has equalled the former records of Platini, van Basten, and Cruyff. It's true that France Football's Award was initially only given to the European Footballer of the Year; however, from 1995 onwards, it was awarded to the best player playing in a European League, regardless of the footballer's nationality, and in more recent editions of the Award, even non-European players competing in non-European leagues were nominated, therefore it had arguably also been expanded into a "World Footballer of the Year" Award during the final decade and a half of its existence, hence why FIFA decided to merge with France Football's Award, in order to avoid competition between the two awards, and to create a more prestigious prize which superseded both awards. Furthermore, the creation of the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year Awards (now the UEFA Best Player in Europe) during the 1997-98 season seemed to serve a similar function to that of the initial "European Footballer of the Year" incarnation of Ballon d'Or Award. Thoughts?

Sorry, I misread that link, and you are correct about that. However, I did manage find another one on the FIFA Ballon d'Or website, and although it does state, as you have elucidated, that the previous winners of the Award prior to its inception in 2014 ARE in fact the FIFA World Player winners, in the "details" sub-pages, the names of the France Football Ballon d'Or winners are also included alongside the FIFA World Player Winners; furthermore, France Football is still a representative of the FIFA Ballon d'Or, therefore I think it could still be argued that the new Award still represents both organisations' previous awards, in particular as in the later editions of the Ballon d'Or, any player, regardless of nationality or the league in which they were playing, were eligible to be nominated. What do you think about this?

http://m.fifa.com/ballon-dor/history/index.html

http://m.fifa.com/ballon-dor/history/edition=1991/index.html

Yes, I understand what you are saying, and after looking up the FIFA Ballon d'Or on the official website in more detail, I see that you are right, and my assumption was incorrect. What is still slightly ambiguous, to me at least, is that, although on the main page of the link you had posted, under the 2001 sub-heading, there was no mention of Owen, if you click on "edition details", a new page opens up, and Figo is listed as the FIFA Ballon d'Or winner, and Owen as the France Football Ballon d'Or winner (http://m.fifa.com/ballon-dor/history/edition=2001/index.html), therefore that does seem to imply that the former France Football Ballon d'Or also has some significance (in this link it also lists the winners of both awards http://www.fifa.com/ballon-dor/history/index.html - I'm not trying to be difficult here, by the way; I do see your point, I understand what you are saying, and I agree with you; if you don't mind, I would just like to discuss this further with you!).

I know you said that the FIFA Ballon d'Or award is now acknowledged only as being a re-establishment of the FIFA Award for the World Player of the Year under a new name, not the European Footballer of the Year Award, but on the official website it does state that the two awards were merged; this is what I still find perplexing. The new FIFA Ballon d'Or Award also bears some similarities of both awards, as now, journalists are also entitled to elect the winner of the award, as well as the managers, and players, therefore it still seems to me that it is generally assumed that the new Award represents both former awards, as the France Football Award was widely regarded as a competing World Footballer Award from 2007 onwards, when it officially grew out of its initial status as being merely the Award for the European Footballer of the Year (sorry that I'm repeating myself so often here; I hope that I'm not being too irritating in prolonging this discussion further! By the way, here is a link that mentions the new regulations in 2007, which enabled any player in any league to be eligible for the France Football Ballon d'Or - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/7750910.stm). Anyway, that was why I had added that additional passage to the Cristiano Ronaldo page; what exacerbated the matter was that many other newspapers had made assumptions that were similar to mine regarding the Award, oh well. All the best!

Rollbacker[edit]

I have enabled Wikipedia:Rollback. Do understand that while you can "rollback" any edits considered vandalism, you should not use rollback to undo edits you merely disagree with. In that case you should still use the Undo function, and explain why. Thanks. – Gilliam (talk) 18:29, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I am, and thank you! Ok, thanks for the advice as always; I still need to read up on and figure out some things when it comes to referencing. All the best!

References[edit]

I've noticed that you've been adding references to some articles that aren't as complete as they could be so I've placed an "how to use the references templates" below. Hope you find it helpful. Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 16:41, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Adding references can be easy[edit]

Just follow the steps 1, 2 and 3 as shown and fill in the details

Hello! Here's how to add references from reliable sources for the content you add to Wikipedia. This helps maintain the Wikipedia policy of verifiability.

Adding well formatted references is actually quite easy:

  1. While editing any article or a wikipage, on the top of the edit window you will see a toolbar which says "Cite". Click on it.
  2. Then click on "Templates".
  3. Choose the most appropriate template and fill in as many details as you can. This will add a well formatted reference that is helpful in case the web URL (or "website link") becomes inactive in the future.
  4. Click on Preview when you're done filling out the 'Cite (web/news/book/journal)' to make sure that the reference is correct.
  5. Click on Insert to insert the reference into your editing window content.
  6. Click on Show preview to Preview all your editing changes.
  • Before clicking on Save page, check that a References header   ==References==   is near the end of the article.
  • And check that   {{Reflist}}    is directly underneath that header.
7.  Click on Save page. ...and you've just added a complete reference to a Wikipedia article.

You can read more about this on Help:Edit toolbar or see this video File:RefTools.ogv.

About Liverpool Kit[edit]

You just reverted my edit about the new kit supplier with links. Can you tell me if not here then where to contribute about new balance as the kit? Cheers mate!!!--Sammanhumagain (talk) 11:23, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, I've been gradually working on cutting down the Baggio article...so I'll keep at it and I will try to do the same with the Buffon article. Best regards, Messirulez (talk) 20:07, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Alfred Hitchcock, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sidney Bernstein (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Peter Gabriel[edit]

In view of your comment that the lede of the Gabriel page is too long, I have made several reductions which I consider acceptable while maintaining the essential information on his main achievements and the recognition he has received. I would welcome your feedback. Thanks. Rodericksilly (talk) 15:16, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Football records in Spain[edit]

Hello

You might remember me from those debates regarding the Copa Eva Duarte trophy of 1952-53 and whether it was official. It turns out that I was right and I even contacted FC Barcelona and it seems that my mission succeeded. They have now added it as a official honor.

http://www.fcbarcelona.com/football/detail/card/honours-football

Now it's time to edit the "Football Records in Spain" page and include the Copa Eva Duarte trophy in the list of honors.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football_records_in_Spain

I would appreciate it if you could do this.

Greetings,

Do you have any sources about the spread of the English language?[edit]

Hi, Carlos Rojas77,

As I think you have seen from your watchlist, there is currently very active editing on the article English language. Welcome aboard. Do you have any sources at hand about any aspect of English? I see you have an interest in how English has spread around the world, and that will be one of the next sections of the article to be revised from top to bottom. It will be great to check and double-check sources with you to make sure that the article is accurate and well cited. See you on the wiki. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 12:35, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Colonies are the Empire ?[edit]

Just to point out that some colonies (including the fledgling United States), were British colonies, but were never Empire.Pincrete (talk) 17:08, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia appears to agree with you, under British Empire, it lists ALL the constitutional arrangements (inc colonies) in the British 'sphere of influence'. Personally I would always make a distinction between colonies (largely the result of settlement, and largely self-governing), and Empire (largely ruled from Britain, undemocratic for the majority and largely the result of conquest).
Specifically I've never heard of the US colonies being referred to as 'Empire'. However, regardless of whether the distinction is worth making, we are I think agreed that English spread as a result of widespread political/military/trading power of Britain and the predominance of English in countries such as the US, Canada etc.Pincrete (talk) 11:42, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
