El-Aaiun[edit]

Hi, I was the one who made the clumsy move of Laayoune to El-Aaiun. Do you know how to do this in a way so as to preserve the edit history, but still rename the article? For reasons explained on the talk page some time ago, I (and others) feel that the French transcription is not to prefer. Arre 17:59, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

Many thanks. Arre 11:08, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Template change[edit]

Why change

{{ROMf}} to {{ROUf}}

( Romania to  Romania), when they look identical on articles such as Football World Cup 2006 (qualification)? Am I missing something? Thanks.

You can leave a message on my talk page. IanManka 05:02, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Oh, okay, I didn't realize that ROU was the proper abbreviation for ROM. Thanks for editing, and keep up the good work! IanManka 11:42, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

"+ rep"[edit]

Hey man, I noticed you edited a whole lot of pages on my watchlists. Good job, very respectable. How do you manage to edit 6 hours into one day? --Hurricane Angel 05:59, 16 December 2005 (UTC)


Hey! Why did you remove Scotland from the list of countries? It has had a Parliament since 1999 and should be in the list. I've re-added it. Thanks. Iainmacl 16:14, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

FIFA World Cup[edit]

Hello. The section you've written, FIFA World Cup#Selection of hosts, is quite informative (and I just like it). But if we are going to make it a featured article, references will be required. Do you have a couple of links at hand that could be cited? Conscious 16:21, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Well, I've come up with some links. Don't know if the sources are really credible, though. Conscious 20:14, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Flag of Mexico.svg[edit]

You should not convert the file Flag_of_Mexico.png to a .svg file without asking for the permission of the author of the flag, which is Juan Manuel Gabino. Please do not use the .svg file until you get that permission.

AlexCovarrubias 09:33, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Hello. Hey I got the authorization of Juan Manuel Gabino to convert the PNG file of the Flag of Mexico to an SVG file. The bad new is that I don't know how to do it and you converted file was excellent. Can you please send it to me? Or upload it again? I would appreciate it a lot. My e-mail is soygris@hotmail.com thanks a lot.

Barnstar[edit]

A Barnstar!
The Running Man Barnstar

In recognition of the great work you do on football articles. Thank you Guinnog 21:26, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

I awarded you this. Feel free to move it to a better place if you like. --Guinnog 21:27, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Oh cool. Hibernian F.C. are my local team. I used to watch them. --Guinnog 22:17, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
A Barnstar!
Football (soccer) barnstar

For your continued good work on football articles. I actually designed this with you in mind. Keep up the good work! Guinnog 10:14, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
Well, I felt bad giving you a generic sports barnstar, so I designed and got approval for a special football one. Enjoy! --Guinnog 01:34, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

László Kiss[edit]

Hey. I noticed you have been fixing the links to László Kiss (footballer) contained here, and just realized you have created the article. Guess what: The official FIFA match report says he was a starter! This throws out the main thing for which he is famous (besides fastest hat trick). I know he was a substitute and that the FIFA report is fucked up, but it will be a problem when citing the official source is needed. What are your thoughts? --ChaChaFut 01:48, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Nevermind. I found a FIFA article with the correct info. --ChaChaFut 01:59, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Hansi Müller[edit]

Thank you for contributing this article! I have announced it at Portal:Germany/New article announcements and on Portal:Germany. If you write more about German football platers, please add them there! Thank you, and happy editing, Kusma (討論) 09:49, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

ISO 3166-1 alpha-3[edit]

I think the question to ask is: why doesn't {{USA}} 'n friends not use the ISO name when they are named after the ISO code? Fix the problem, not the usage, is what I'm really suggesting. Cburnett 19:46, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Not putting any blame here, but you didn't drop me a question on my talk page (specifically me because I was the sole editor who switched to the flag templates) so I didn't see your comment nor your revision until I went to reference the list today, ergo my question here and now. Which ones were incorrect? I'd hate to see my work reverted because of a few out of the many that were incorrect. Cburnett 19:50, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Enlargement of the United Nations[edit]

Good job! This is a very fine and much-needed article. Thanks for adding it. As a sidenote, I changed it to keep in line with other such articles (e.g. Enlargement of the European Union.) Keep up the good work. -Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 20:23, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

User:SndrAndrss[edit]

Hi again. Rather an unusual request; the above named user has edited quite a few articles that you and I are intrerested in. He also edits articles on athletics. Most of his edits are beneficial or harmless, but he has also attracted a few warnings, recently from me, for vandalism, or, let's be charitable and say very careless edits. Will you keep an eye on him (or conceivably her), and let me know if anything looks funny? I don't want to have to block him, and he seems to be doing better, but he is completely non-communicative with other editors, which makes it very hard to gauge his intentions. Thanks. --Guinnog 00:29, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

link to Bundesliga[edit]

Hello, when you want to link to the article about the Bundesliga, please do not link to Bundesliga, as that is a disambiguation page (which nothing should be linked to). Instead link to the one of the options found on that page such as Bundesliga (football) by writing out [[Bundesliga (football)|Budesliga]]. Regards, Jeff3000 05:56, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Belgian names[edit]

After noticing some of your edits on articles I'm watching, I also noticed you sometimes edit articles with the comment: Belgian names capitalize "Van". Could you please give me the source of that knowledge, since it is wrong and should be corrected. The rules are actually as follows in Belgium: the last name of a person is written in the way it appears on their identity card. If that card says George Van Somewhere, then "Van" is always with a capital V, however if it says George van Somewhere, then the v is never capitalized. In the Netherlands, a neighbour country of Belgium, Dutch is also the official language but the rules there are different, there the name is always written with a small v when the first name is mentioned, as in George van Somewhere and G. van Somewhere. However if the first name is not mentioned, then the last name always starts with a capital V, as in Mister Van Somewhere or Dr. Van Somewhere.

An exception to this rule is the french version of "Van" (which actually means "From" in English), which is "De or D'". In Belgium the passport is always checked for the correct spelling, just like the normal case, but in the Netherlands it is always spelled with a small d, even when the first name is not mentioned: Sir de Something or Mr. de Something. The dutch wiki has an article about this, so should you understand it, have a peek here. --Pelotastalk 23:00, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't think he fits into cat:Russian Footballers. I will ask the people at the Russian messageboard. Thanks. - CrazyRussian talk/email 11:05, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Your edit of 1982 World Cup Finals[edit]

Brilliant! Keep up the good work. --Guinnog 00:50, 26 September 2006 (UTC) [2]

FIFA World Cup Referees[edit]

Hi, I've added a list of guys who have officiated at World Cup Finals at FIFA World Cup Final match officials and am just adding to it as I go. If you've got any info on the different chaps who been selected to represent their nation at the event can you add stuff there. --Steve bloomer --

Thanks for the Radulescu stuff - have you anything AT ALL on Georges Balway / Balvay or Thomas Balway / Balvay? He's the only Frenchman who refereed at the 1930 World Cup.

Hi. I'm having real difficulties with the reference to Thomas Balway the referee. I have linked it via the entry for Jean Langenus, but it appears that the above-named was actually a person called John Balway. I don't know how to change the initial entry : it reads Thomas Balway. Can you help?

Cheers, Steve bloomer.

1954 World Cup Final[edit]

Not quite sure why the format I typed in that included all of the information regarding the match (i.e. match stats) was converted to what we have now.

I have edited others on the Football (soccer) matches link and would have thought that the format should be uniform on all of them for the purposes of information transfer. Any ideas?

Kevin Kuranyi[edit]

Why do the accents need to be dropped for category indexes? Kingjeff 02:17, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

I don't see where it is. I think it's just pretty stupid making a minor change like it and it's incorrect too. Anyways, I'm not going to make a bid deal about it. Kingjeff 02:29, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Akoto in WC squad 2006[edit]

Dear Sir,

I have edited "Éric Akoto" in "WC squads 2006" from "Admira/Wacker" to "no club". Some time later you have edited back.

I am from Austria and I know, that the contract between Akoto and Admira/Wacker ended before Christmas 2005. So he hasn't played a single game for Admira/Wacker in 2006.

Akoto was allowed to train with the Austrian club SV Schwechat (play in third highest class), but was not allow to play for them!

In July 2006 he find a new club with Grazer AK.

Thank you and best regards!

1954 FIFA World Cup squads#Scotland[edit]

Hi there. According to John Rafferty's 100 Years of Scottish Football (Pan, 1973) only 13 players actually travelled to Switzerland in the Scotland squad: Martin, Cunningham, Aird, Docherty, Davidson, Cowie, McKenzie, Fernie, Mochan, Brown, Ormond, Hamilton and Anderson. I wasn't sure what the best way include this information was - to include without a reference, or to input a traditional book reference which might ruin the appearance of the page. Any thoughts? Caledonian Place 13:28, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Well it doesn't look as awkward as I thought it might but feel free to adapt it. Caledonian Place 22:31, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
Right, this could be tricky. Obviously the eleven who played in both games traveled, while both John Rafferty (who was a journalist at The Scotsman at the time} and Jim Brown agree that Hamilton replaced Johnstone and both also agree that 13 traveled.
Rafferty's book states " (manager) Beattie would only take 13 players to the finals and two of them were goalkeepers." Interestingly, Rafferty doesn't actually state Anderson went; I assumed that from his 2 goalkeepers statement, which may make Brown appear more accurate.
However, Brown states "Players such as George Young were ruled out as Rangers refused permission for any of their players to go to Switzerland as they were required for a club tour of the USA" while Rafferty states that the reason for his non-inclusion was that he was unfit at the original time of selection and that the selectors had decided to stick to one original squad. There are quotations from chief selector Tom Reid, although not specifically about Young, which may suggest Rafferty has greater detail, and as a result, greater knowledge.
It also seams strange that such an experienced player as Bobby Evans would travel and not get a game ahead of relatively inexperienced player like Jimmy Davidson or Doug Cowie, especially after a defeat in the first game.
To be honest, its difficult to tell and probably needs a third source to arbitrate. I will try asking at Scottishleague.net, a great Scottish football historians site. Caledonian Place 13:28, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
Brown is right and Rafferty wrong. See here. The user "Scottish" is David Ross, a respected and published Scottish football historian. Will change the article and include the link to the Evening Telegraph. Caledonian Place 14:39, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

FRY[edit]

Thanks for expanding the note on Yugoslavia at List of United Nations member states! The book I read only said the FR of Yugoslavia was expelled, but provided no more details than that. - Thanks, Hoshie 05:42, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

1950 Sweden squad[edit]

Hi. I noticed that back in September you removed Sven Jonasson and Bengt Berndtsson from the Swedish team. I was wondering what sources you have from which you were able to determine their removal. I cannot seem to find this information. Libro0 21:47, 11 November 2006 (UTC)


Hi. The reason I left in a lot of names in for the early World Cups was because I was actually doing the reverse, that is looking for a reason/source that they should not be listed. I was trying to make sure that even though a player did not play or even get on the final squad that he was not an alternate or pre-selected and then dropped for some reason. As for the Hungarian player Somlay, User Gabute is tracking down his first name. So that may be a few days. Libro0 00:35, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your work cleaning up Pablo Bengoechea. You did an excellent job.

Francisco Carrasco[edit]

You recently placed a prod tag on the above whilst also creating the entry on AfD. I replaced the prod tag with the appropriate afd tag, assuming that is what you intended. Now, those arriving at the article will be led to the relevant discussion on AfD by clicking on the link shown.

Please note that PROD and AFD are independent processes for deleting an article, kindly refer to the links for further information. Ohconfucius 09:27, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Ignacio Tréllez (Trelles?)[edit]

Hey Chanheigeorge. Great work as usual. I have a question: What prompted you to move this page to the spelling with the accent and "z" at the end? Although I personally agree with it and I think that it is the correct spelling of that name (having Spanish as my first language), his surname is Trelles as far as FIFA and the FEMEXFUT are concerned. Whatever is correct, I feel tempted to include a note in the article about the wrong version being also used. Thanks in advance for your response. --ChaChaFut 03:59, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

William Jeffrey[edit]

Sorry about the Penn State thing. I went a little overboard. I will go ahead and add it to his bio instead. Libro0 18:36, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to ask if the coach's name in FIFA World Cup squad templates should be full or just surname? (I have recently created some) Thank you. - Darwinek 14:45, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Professional level indeed[edit]

You have created an article about Edmund Twórz in appalling English. Even if you had copied it from somewhere (which I suspect is not the case, as he is a rather obscure pre-war player), you are bound to correct it. Such behavior might be acceptable to a newbie, but I am dismayed to find it in experienced Wikipedians who claim good or even "professional" knowledge of English. Shame on you!

The preceding unsigned comment, which was not only rude but also erroneous since it was somebody else who created the article, was added by 83.23.46.235 (talk) 21:53, 16 January 2007 (UTC).

Namgung Do[edit]

could you please revert the article name? (from Nam Kung-Do to Namgung DO).

Namgung is a well-known Korean surname (eventhough not as frequent as Kims, Lees or Parks).


Rafael García[edit]

I don't know why you made this useless disambiguation (I intend to have it changed back), but could at least fix the links?

Why do that move in the first place? People looking for an obscure soccer player would type Rafael Torres since that is his name. There is only 1 Rafael García on Wikipedia. TJ Spyke 21:58, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Mito as uni town[edit]

Hi. Good catch on that one! I hadn't even noticed the categorization. This is definitely NOT a university town! Cheers, from Mito! --RJCraig 02:54, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

University Towns[edit]

While I doubt Pretoria can be regarded as a University Town. Bloemfontien probably is. At least to the same extent as Pietermaritzburg, Durham and York the city derives a substantial amount of its existance from the presence of two South African Universities. The citation:

in all cases are so dubbed because the educational institution(s) presence pervades economic and social life. Many local residents may be employed by the university, many businesses cater primarily to the university, and indeed the students population may outnumber the local population outright.

While the gown population does not outnumber the town population at this point the prevailing ethos remains. Paul Hjul 16:19, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Nelson, British Columbia[edit]

Why did you place Nelson in the category of University Towns? Have you ever been to Nelson? It is certainly not a University Town. It seems maybe you are running some sort of script to modify this category in several articles and did this one without researching it? Rewand 03:03, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Soviet Union/USSR[edit]

Hello. Shouldn't USSR national football team and subsequent FIFA WC templates be renamed to "Soviet Union" form? You know, we already use United States instead of U.S. or USA. Regards. - Darwinek 12:26, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hello. Well, it depends. Maybe not. As far as I know cat. Czechoslovak footballers includes only national team players, Soviet one should include such, too. Point is what will happen if such "XY international footballers" would be created. You know, which footballers will be then categorized under "Czechoslovak footballers". I think it is pointless to include there all people born in Czechoslovakia or Soviet Union, respectively, as all contemporary footballers were born there. So I propose cleanup of (mainly the Soviet one) to include only footballers who played for the national team and notice on the top of the category page, that it is designed for inclusion of national team players.

Fact is that most of articles about CS and USSR footballers on Wikipedia, are about footballers who played for the national team. Maybe in the future, when there will be more players from that eras without national team record, then it should be split. - Darwinek 08:29, 27 March 2007 (UTC)


Sub-Categories[edit]

No, I will not. Since they are subcategory, they must be under subcategory. General practice is wrong. They don't need to be in the category:X footballers. - KRBN 13:08, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

List of countries by continent[edit]

Hello,

At the moment, I am trying to clear up the (on purpose?) confusion between Western Sahara and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic in Wikipedia.

You have reverted my edit in List of countries by continent, and you were probably right if this list is for geographic entities (you corrected my mistake).

Following a dispute about the template Template:Country data Western Sahara, I created the section Template talk:Country data Western Sahara#Request for Comment: Western Sahara and the SADR in the talk page. As that concerns a similar subject, your opinion would be welcomed. --Juiced lemon 22:43, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

1950 US squad[edit]

Regarding Antonello Valentini: I tried to determine if this was an error. I don't know where Antonello came from but Valentini resembled most closely an Ed Valentine who played for the US at that period. Re Frank Moniz: Like Ed Valentine, Moniz played for the US in that period also but they also both played for Fall River Ponta Delgada. From what I was told there were two tryouts for the 1950 US team. One was St. Louis and the other New York. Those people I am told were at the tryouts and were possibly named as alternates. Between Helmut Demucke, Antonello Valentini, and Frank Moniz only Moniz appears to free of errors. I have not been able to find the other two anywhere. Libro0 21:56, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have perfomed a web search with the contents of Martin Hoffmann (luthier), and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Martin Hoffmann. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and 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 and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot 00:59, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

As you can see, the first match is missing. Plus, I've found another website who says that Youga played 1 match and was send to Bradford City in January, so he may have played the match vs Fulham... --necronudist 10:08, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Mixed team categories[edit]

Hi, do you really think the "mixed team" categories are really necessary? I perceive the "mixed team" designation as a retroactive book-keeping "country code" by the IOC so that medal totals would balance. Certainly those athletes didn't really compete as a team other than with the other partner(s) in their specific events. I think it is a bit of overkill for these categories to exist. Thanks, Andrwsc 00:43, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Andrzej Fischer[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Andrzej Fischer, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Andrzej Fischer seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Andrzej Fischer, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Regarding criteria for List of foreign Premier League players[edit]

Hi! Criteria are criteria...just conventions. I don't agree with you simply 'cause other comparable lists I wrote (Serie A foreigners, Liga foreigners) use my "original" criteria. However, you are doing a great job keeping the page updated and you are de facto mantaining it, so I think you should decide for whatever you think is right! P.S.: I really appreciate your works, expecially the World Cups' squads! They're my passion! I would build up a wiki just for them :-P --necronudist (talk) 22:03, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, I update the Serie A list after every matchday (I'm Italian), and the Liga's list every 6 months, but you're doing a great job with the Premier League list. Plus, I've got a database where I collect World Cup players' infos since...something like 10 years :-) but it's really difficult to find any 1930-1950 infos, 'cause I don't know any research book about that period. I think the only solution is to find newspapers of the period. --necronudist (talk) 09:47, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

January 2008[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that recently copied the contents of a page and pasted it into another with a different name. Specifically, you copied the contents of Lee R. Martin This is what we call a "cut and paste move," and it is very undesirable because it splits the article's history, which is needed for attribution and is helpful in many other ways. The mechanism we use for renaming articles is to move it to a new name which both preserves the page's history and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. In most cases, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. If there is an article that you cannot move yourself by this process, follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Requested moves to request the move by another. Also, if there are any other articles that you copied and pasted, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. – PeeJay 11:51, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Lee Martin[edit]

No, I think it would be best to use Lee Martin (footballer born 1987), Lee Martin (footballer born February 1968) and Lee Martin (footballer born September 1968), since those players aren't commonly known by their full names. – PeeJay 20:08, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Using "defender" and "goalkeeper" are no good as those positions are not specific to football. Other sports have positions called "defender" and "goalkeeper" too. – PeeJay 22:39, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

FIFA World Cup[edit]

Sorry about that, I thought I had left those in. I didn't intend to remove all of your edits. I removed the federations as they are all found in the wikilink, and is not really relevant to the article on the World Cup. I removed the stuff about Pele because I felt it was glorifying him aboive other people who have played in 4 world Cups. Whether he should be glorified or not is another question, just not in a neutral encyclopedia article. I hope that clarifies it, and sorry for any offense caused.

Kanchelskis and Yuran[edit]

Hey, I'm impressed by your interest in soccer, but trust me there is a reason why I did not include those two of them in the list. Beside them there some few others who prefered to play for Russia over Ukraine. On the international arena the only contribution they've made for their country of origin was the challenge by playing elsewhere and continuing to refuse on contributing now out of the principle. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 04:16, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Walter Kollmann[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Walter Kollmann 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 notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

Portugal at the 1984 EC[edit]

There's much confusion about who was the second goalkeeper for Portugal at the 1984 EC. Many sources say Francisco Silva, many others Jorge Martins. Have you got an "ultimate" source? --necronudist (talk) 09:06, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

AFAIK UEFA listed only lineups, and Francisco Silva/Jorge Martins didn't play (you can retrieve them playing with the Wayback Machine and Google cache, I checked today morning). My sources are a pair of Portuguese friends and many websites provided by them:
  • Vedeta ou Marreta, a complete Benfica blog. In the tag you can find França 84, plus is written Foi um dos escolhidos por Fernando Cabrita, António Morais, Toni e José Augusto para representar Portugal no Europeu de Futebol realizado em França em 1984. (was selected with [...] to represent Portugal in the 1984 European Championship), plus a comment say Ainda foi o terceiro guarda-redes do Euro-84 (he was the third goalkeeper at Euro-84). I've asked the author of the blog and he kindly answered that:

    "I believe some sources mistake him for a certain "Francisco Silva" because of an article in wikipedia, but the truth is that there wasn't even then any Francisco Silva playing goalie in the portuguese top league! Incidentally, Jorge Martins, even though he was called for Euro '84 and later Mexico '86, never got a full cap (!)."

In fact, the only Francisco Silva reference my Portuguese friends' found is this: but he retired after 1955-56 season.
  • ZeroZero.pt, main Portuguese football website, where you can notice in the right part of the page, at the end of his career, the indication that he took part at 1986 WC and Euro-84.

I'm waiting for a book source from one of my friends, but I think you can easily guess Jorge Martins took part and not "Francisco Silva". :-) --necronudist (talk) 21:40, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

No :-) his fullname is Jorge Manuel Martins da Silva. I've reverted your reversion citing the ZeroZero.pt source. --necronudist (talk) 09:00, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

See Category:Beach volleyball players and Category:Olympic beach volleyball players. New country-specific categories like e.g. Category:American beach volleyball players should be created as well as similar cats for olympic beach volleyball players. Many such players use just e.g. "American volleyball players" or "Olympic volleyball players of the United States", these cats need to be replaced with proper beach volleyball players categories.

Gintarė Volungevičiūtė[edit]

Thanks for adding the medal infobox to the article I started.

How many articles will be listed in Category:Olympic sailors of Lithuania?

--Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 09:17, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Depends on whether there are more pages of Olympic sailors of Lithuania created. Chanheigeorge (talk) 09:44, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
I assumed you created the category because you knew of some, or planned to create them. If that is not the case, I think we should merge the category with its parents. It can always be created again once its parent categories become too full. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 09:47, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
If you notice, the category is under both Category:Olympic competitors for Lithuania and Category:Olympic sailors by country. So this way we have a category structure that categorize all the Olympians under both country and sport. So we create a new category even when there is only one page. Chanheigeorge (talk) 09:49, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

To me, this seems to be a case of over-categorization, appropriate for large Olympic teams, but not for small ones. Gintarė Volungevičiūtė can simply be in Sailors of Lithuania, Olympic sailors and Olympic athletes of Lithuania. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 09:58, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

The downside, as you said, is that some of these "Olympic (sport competitors) of (country)" is going to be huge while some will only have one page. The upside is that it's structurally consistent this way, so it helps editors correctly categorize the page instantly. Say we do not create "Olympic sailors of Lithuania" and put the page in both "Olympic competitors for Lithuania" and "Olympic sailors". However, over time, two problems will emerge:

  1. Say 4 years later I create another page of a Lithuanian Olympic sailor. Then I have to check whether "Olympic sailors of Lithuania" has been created yet to determine what categories I have to add to the page. This does not help me editing.
  2. Say we decide that we create "Olympic sailors of Lithuania" once there are 10 pages. How can I determine that? If I go to "Olympic competitors for Lithuania", I have no idea who is a sailor or not, so I have to click on every single page. If I go to "Olympic sailors", I have no idea who is Lithuanian or not, so I have to click on every single page. So recategorizing the pages are going to waste you a lot of time later.

Believe me, at the beginning of the year the whole categorization situation is quite messy. Even if there are categories such as "Olympic swimmers of the United States", a lot of eligible pages are still in "Olympic competitors for the United States". That's because when people create pages they tend to copy and paste what they see in other pages, so if one page is in the "incorrect" category, soon you will have 10 pages in the "incorrect" category. So we make the effort to put every Olympian under "Olympic (sport competitors) of (country)".

Haiti at the 1924 Summer Olympics[edit]

Hey, maybe you can help me shed some light on something. I noticed that you created articles for seven shooting medalists for Haiti at the 1924 Summer Olympics. Both Sports Reference and databaseOlympics, however, list only five medalists in that event, the extra two being L. H. Clermont and C. Dupre. My guess is that the latter two were listed as participants, but were either reserves or did not compete for some reason. Do you know/have a source for why this discrepancy exists? Cheers, CP 19:50, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I see it now. Thanks! Cheers, CP 02:24, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Trouble with reversions in List of stripped Olympic medals[edit]

Chanheigeorge, I'm not a big Wikipedian, so I'm asking for help in keeping an eye on List of stripped Olympic medals. Someone has twice incorrectly moved Rick DeMont's name from "stripped" to "stripped-and-returned." Would appreciate any help in the matter.

Trevor Cahill[edit]

I expanded Trevor Cahill's entry. I'm a little bit of an over protective Dad with the articles I've written, so I hope you don't mind that I did that.

Colin Foster[edit]

Hello. You created this page as disambiguation, but when I went through it, one of the 2 needed to be deleted as it was a red link with nothing else linked to it (see WP:MOSDAB red links sections if you're interested in the details). With one entry, I changed it to a redirect, but I can see its potentially useful, so thought I'd let you know. That way, if you start a stub on the other footballer, then this could be changed back to a dab. Boleyn (talk) 11:25, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

JUANFRAN[edit]

Hi there GEORGE, VASCO here,

thank you for your help in reverting to the proper national team stats in Juanfran's article. There is a chap who keeps reverting, using ENDLESS anonymous IP, from the proper 11 caps-0 goals, to 13-1. I already told him to please read FOOTBALLDATABASE.COM link and Spanish national team link i named NATIONAL TEAM DATA. Apparently he either does not know English or is just a vandal. Either way it would not surprise me...and the situation is getting a bit annoying.

New flag templates[edit]

Hello Chanheigeorge, I saw your creation of {{flagicon simple}} and {{flag nodata}}, but then subsequently decided to use new country data templates (for the Walloon Region and Flemish Region) to accomplish the task you were looking to solve (which was the right thing to do, in my opinion). Do you still want those two templates, or can we delete them per WP:CSD#G7 with your permission? Thanks — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 19:43, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

World Cup[edit]

"...Brazil has...." is correct since the subject is singular ie a single team known as Brazil. "Have" would be correct if the sentence said..."the Brazilians have won......" Will you revert...or should I????--Buster7 (talk) 06:07, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

The following has been moved from my page for continuity.--Buster7 (talk) 06:49, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Well, the singular or plural debate has been there for a while. People come in and often edit it one way or the other. I'm not an expert, but comparing the two sentences:

  • Brazil, the only team to have played in every tournament, have won it a record five times. They are....
  • Brazil, the only team to have played in every tournament, has won it a record five times. It is....

The first one seems to be better. Chanheigeorge (talk) 06:28, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Brazil is the subject word of the sentence in question. It is a singular word and requires a singular verb. Brazil, used here, refers to the singular team....one of many teams. For example, in order to use the verb "have' we would need to change the subject word from 'Brazil' to 'The Brazilians'.
  • He,she,it 'has'...Brazil, a single entity
  • they 'have' ......Brazilians, the members on the team.
I hope this explains why the second structure is the correct one. --Buster7 (talk) 06:47, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

More World Cup[edit]

You just deleted the following:

Help![edit]

Hi there GEORGE, VASCO here,

Since you help me before, i tell you again: what can we do with this vandal, anonymous? He keeps changing infoboxes at his pleasure, and inserting lies. Take this four examples, Arnaldo Edi Lopes da Silva (here, he removed wikilink of PORTUGAL NATIONAL U21 TEAM and inserted just PORTUGAL, and has inserted lies about him being called up to the main national team), Juanfran (with all the links i provided, he still changes his national stats, and now has merged the U21 and A teams' stats, just because), Geraldo Alves (also removed national team link, and changed to nation) and Gustavo Manduca (he inserted national team lies, which i removed; How could he have scored against Belgium in the Olympics when this nation did not even appear? Also, checking - it is available on Wikipedia - the match reports of that competition, we can clearly see that Manduca did not score, against Belgium or any other team).

A common pattern? They are ALL AEK Athens FC players. Have a nice week from Portugal,

VASCO AMARAL - --NothingButAGoodNothing (talk) 21:02, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Brazil spots in Libertadores[edit]

Interesting. Thanks for informing me. I don't read Portuguese, just Spanish and English.
I'm confused at the same time. According to what you put, ":b) If the Copa Libertadores 2009 champion is not Brazilian, then #1, #2, and #3 go to Second Phase, and #4 goes to First Phase." There are five spots for Brazil. Brazil 1, 2, 3, 4 go to the second phase, and 5 go to the first phase IF the Libertadores champ is not a Brazilian team. So can you please check if this ":a) If the Copa Libertadores 2009 champion is Brazilian, then #1 and #2 go to Second Phase, and #3 and #4 go to First Phase." is correct since I'm guessing you read Portuguese.

Group by matchday?[edit]

You have just put through a whole lot of edits under group by matchday. However, this is not what you are doing, you are just putting lines between sets of matches played on the wsame day (or a day or two apart). Where matches have been postponed etc, you are no longer grouping by matchday - if you were, the matchday structure would be maintained (ie, the matches would be displayed out of chronological order). This is NOT the same as what has occurred in the CONCACAF hexagonal, (where the postponed match has been listed as "Round Five - rescheduled" rather than being "grouped by matchday") or what happens in CONMEBOL, which are the only pleases this is appropriate. I think these distinctions are highly arbitrary, and the edits are quite silly. Please reconsider. You might also want to consider how this sort of thing would play out in the UEFA context.

The Redirect of Walloon Region to Wallonia[edit]

I agree with Oreo Priest who is redirecting Walloon Region to Wallonia.We really had a difficult discussion about that and that's the best solution Oreo Priest wrote. Because, in Belgium or Wallonia we do say 'Wallonia' if we are speaking of it as a whole. When ypu are in relationship with the administration and so on or in order to speak about the rules, tle laws, the civil servants, the powers... we are speaking about the Walloon Region. I think it is clear. When we are spending holidays in Paris in holidays, we don't say : "Nous passons quelques jours dans la Ville de Paris" but simply "Nous passons quelques jours à Paris". Don't you think it is the same in all the languages and all the countries? Sincerely, José Fontaine (talk) 11:40, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

Brasília and Brazilian Federal District are not the same. The thing is: The Brazilian Federal District is so little that Brasília is the only important or "big" city there.

Spanish La Liga Europa League rules for Europa League[edit]

OK, I've read your correction about the Atletico "no-next-EL" and I would believe you have reason. Then, I have another question in the rules, if Seville wons the Copa del Rey, Atlético wons the 2009-10 Europa League and Seville will finish 5th in La Liga, what happens with the 5th and winner Copa pots both wins by Seville? Atletico will be in group stage as winner last Europa League, and it will be another club for some pot of the two acquired by Seville? thank you 81.44.95.47 (talk) 02:27, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

If Atletico Madrid lose both finals and Sevilla finish 5th, the play-off round places go to Sevilla (cup winners) and the 6th placed team, and the 3rd qualifying round place goes to the 7th placed team. If Atletico Madrid lose both finals and Sevilla finish 4th, the play-off round places go to the 5th and 6th placed teams, and the 3rd qualifying round place goes to Atletico Madrid (cup runners-up). So if Sevilla is assured of 4th place, then Atletico Madrid is assured of a Europa League place. Chanheigeorge (talk) 02:51, 6 May 2010 (UTC)


well Chanheigeorge, thanks for the good response and explanation, so excuse me for my insistence hehe, I was saying that if Atlético will win the Europa League (then assured Group Stage of the next Europa League as Title Holder), Seville finishes 5th in La Liga (then assured Play-off stage of the next Europa League as 5th place) and Seville will win the Copa del Rey final (then assured another Play-off stage pot as winner's cup), so being Seville occupying two pots, what happens then? it will be another spanish club for take place one of the two pots occupated for Seville? it's complicated! so, thanks for the response 81.44.95.47 (talk) 03:01, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Sorry for not understanding your previous question! I think what will happen is that Sevilla and the 6th placed team will enter the play-off round, and the 3rd qualifying round place for Spain will become "empty", so no team will take that place. To compensate, teams from other countries will be moved up a round. You can read the details at 2010–11 UEFA Europa League#The Title-Holder. It is indeed quite complicated! Chanheigeorge (talk) 03:15, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

You added Category:1934 FIFA World Cup players to the Gyula Polgar page, despite him not playing a match in the tournament, and the introductory page for that article refers to players who 'participated' in the event, which would normally be taken as playing a match. I can't see the logic of adding a player to this category when he hasn't actually played. I agree it is still noteworthy to have made the squad, but this is being picked up via the template anyway. I would welcome any further thoughts you have on this, or if you could point me to any past discussions. Regards Eldumpo (talk) 20:31, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, see post at [6] Eldumpo (talk) 09:12, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Volley[edit]

I have seen that you edited some volleyball articles. Some players articles, most of them looks outdated. I would like to improve players by country. Could you please choose a country to contribute with? Please take a look on Yekaterina Gamova, Hélia Souza, Serena Ortolani and Kenia Carcaces for a model to follow. Please can you please improve some volleyball players with infobox and some addons? References are very important. Let me know. Oscar987 21:59, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

continental interference[edit]

George, it might be useful to have a list of Pacific Island cities somewhere, but the fact stands that oceania is not a continent.

English UEL berths, 2011–12 season[edit]

Hi,

as of now, the English spots should be aligned as following:

  • If Stoke City win the FA Cup, then
    • the fifth-placed Premier League team and Stoke will enter the playoff round
    • Birmingham City will enter the third qualifying round.

That is the easiest case; it gets a lot more complicated if Manchester City win the cup:

  • If Manchester City win the FA Cup AND finish fourth in the league, then
    • the fifth-placed team will enter the playoff round
    • the higher-placed team of Stoke City and Birmingham City will enter the playoff round as well, with the lower team going to the third qualification round.
  • If Manchester City win the FA Cup AND finish fifth or lower in the league, then
    • Manchester City and the fifth-/sixth-placed team will enter the playoff round
    • Birmingham City will enter the third qualification round.

hth, Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 17:10, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Meeeeh... these regularities are sometimes a little difficult to overview. After taking yet another and closer look at this year's paperwork, and assuming that UEFA won't change it for 2011–12, I think you are right regarding Birmingham and Stoke. Rocket science is easy compared to this... :D On a second thought, Birmingham should then get a TQ instead of a Q in the current Premier League table... and things will most likely not have cleaned up untill Tottenham and Man City have played each other in mid-May... *sigh* --Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 17:35, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

2011 CAF Confederation Cup[edit]

Hey, noticed the last edit you made in the play-off round stage saying that it's not certain which team will host the first and second leg. However, it has always been the case that the teams eliminated from the Champions League play the first leg at home, with the teams advancing from the second round of the Confed Cup host the second game at home (to give the advantage to teams that actually began the competition in the Confed Cup). With that said, I will add the two teams back to the table .. if I'm wrong feel free to revert the edit (just mention that I'm wrong :D). Take care. TonyStarks (talk) 10:48, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Status and Advice[edit]

Consider merging these into a page for them all, or to merge the councils into the districts. Remember that you will in any case need references providing substantial coverage from 3rd party independent published reliable sources, print or online, but not blogs or press releases, or material derived from press releases. The previous decisions about governmental councils of this size has usually been to delete, sometimes to merge. See WP:LOCAL DGG ( talk ) 16:53, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

I ageee about removal of the tags; if i am not satisfied, I will use AfD DGG ( talk ) 16:53, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Community Development Councils[edit]

I agree with DGG that these probably need merging. North East Community Development Council and North West Community Development Council in particular provide no addition information that isn't in Community Development Council so there's no reason for them to have stand-alone articles. Why the other two do have more content this could easily be merged given how little there is. While in time they may, with the addition of sourced information, grow to a size that warrants their own article they don't at the moment. Dpmuk (talk) 21:19, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Luis Garcia[edit]

Hey can you explain to me what you are planning on doing with the content of Luis Garcia. It kinda looks like you just blanked it. Would a page move not have been more appropriate? I'm not saying you are doing anything wrong, just that I find it confusing. Metal lunchbox (talk) 08:32, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Offical versus unoffical sources for match reports[edit]

Consensus has been reached that forcing the use of 'official' sources, such as club websites and the websites of UEFA and FIFA for match reports is not acceptable. The source I used is reliable and has comparable coverage, there is no reason to replace it, so please don't. If you want to use the 'official' source yourself, you may still do so if you are the first one to work on an entry.

Please see this thread on Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard and this WikiProject Football post for details.

2012 AFC Champions League[edit]

Do you think this is worth noting?

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has decided to grant the provisional measures requested by the Indonesian Football Club Persipura Jayapura and to order the reinstatement of the club in the AFC Champions League 2012.

Persipura was supposed to play the 2012 AFC Champions League Playoffs (East-Zone) on 11 February 2012 against Adelaïde United FC (Australia). At the end of November 2011, the Indonesian FA (PSSI) decided to remove Persipura from the AFC Champions League for disciplinary reasons and requested the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to replace the club with Persija Jakarta. The AFC noted the removal of Persipura but did not accept the participation of Persija Jakarta. As a consequence, Adelaïde United FC was exempted from the playoff match and was granted direct access to the group stage of the competition (first match to be played on 6 March 2012).

On the basis of the CAS decision on request for provisional measures, Persipura Jayapura will be entitled to play the playoff match versus Adelaïde United FC. In case of qualification, the status of Persipura would have to be determined by the CAS after examination of the arguments of the parties (i.e. Persipura, PSSI, AFC and Adelaïde United FC) on the merits of this case.

Finnish League and Cup articles[edit]

Hi Chanheigeorge. I am making contact with those Editors that take an active interest in Finnish football on English Wikipedia.

For a long time I have been happy to work on Finnish football on Wikipedia without making contact with other Finnish football enthusiasts - basically I like preparing articles / undertaking tasks that interest me and contact with others has not been important. However recently some of my work was changed by a Wikipedia Reviewer and this has led me to question what approach I should be following and indeed what approach would other Finnish football enthusiasts wish to adopt?

The current issue I face is the naming of Finnish Football League and Cup pages. I have adopted the approach that we should always be using the Finnish name in the title, for example 2007 Ykkönen and 2001 Veikkausliiga. However, I am aware that words like Mestaruussarja mean very little to most English speaking Wikipedia users. I therefore have included the English name in the title as well in recent pages, for example, 1936 Mestaruussarja – Finnish League Championship, 1938 Suomensarja – Finnish League Division 2 and 2000 Kakkonen – Finnish League Division 2. I thought that this approach might be a suitable naming convention until the Reviewer changed "2012 Suomen Cup - Finnish Cup" back to 2012 Finnish Cup.

The basic question I am asking is whether Finnish League and Cup articles should have a Finnish or English title or some form of hybrid?

I provide examples below:

Finnish Title English Title Hybrid Title
2012 Veikkausliiga 2012 Finnish Championship 2012 Finnish Veikkausliiga
2012 Kolmonen 2012 Finnish Division 3 2012 Finnish Kolmonen
2012 Suomen Cup 2012 Finnish Cup 2012 Finnish Suomen Cup
2012 Suomen Liigacup 2012 Finnish League Cup 2012 Finnish Liigacup
1938 Maakuntasarja 1938 Finnish Division 3 1938 Finnish Maakuntasarja
1954 Suomensarja 1954 Finnish Division 2 1954 Finnish Suomensarja
1970 II divisioona 1970 Finnish Division 2 1970 Finnish II divisioona
1986 III divisioona 1986 Finnish Division 3 1986 Finnish III divisioona
1997 Ykkönen 1997 Finnish Division 1 1997 Finnish Ykkönen

I have read Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English) and Wikipedia:Article titles but have not reached a firm conclusion yet on the best way forward in establishing a consistent approach. The issue does matter with respect to the corrections I must make to existing pages and the tens of pages yet to be prepared. It could also carry implications for some of the articles that you currently contribute to.

I think that the matter would best be addressed on a proper basis and encourage that the issue is considered on the Talk Page of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Finland task force. If the matter is of concern to you as well, please add your name to the list of participants on the main page.

You may also wish to comment on the project structure that I have prepared.

Kind regards - (Finnish Gas (Finnish Gas 12:12, 23 February 2012 (UTC)).

Rangers ineligibile for 2012–13 European competitions[edit]

Hi,

should the ineligibilty of Rangers for the 2012–13 European competitions already be noted on both the 2012–13 UCL and UEL pages? The fact will surely appear on both pages at some later point during this season; however, I'm a little insecure if it should already be added right now since it is not yet clear on which place the club will end its 2011–12 league campaign.

WCQ: Antigua and Barbuda awarded 3-0 win over Curacao.[edit]

You added that Antigua and Barbuda were awarded a 3-0 win over Curacao. Do you know what the reason was for this decision?

I could not find anything about it in the press or on the internet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.112.245.122 (talk) 02:31, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

I think it was because Curacao played Christy Bonevacia, who should have been suspended (yellow card in matchday 1: [9], yellow card in matchday 2: [10], and played in matchday 3: [11]). It was not reported at all because the decision was taken after ATG already qualified for the next round and only the GD were changed which had no effect on the final positions.

Proposed deletion of category[edit]

Greetings! A stub template or category which you created has been nominated for renaming or deletion at Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion. The stub type most likely doesn't meet Wikipedia requirements for a stub type, through failure to meet standards relating to the name, scope, current stub hierarchy or likely size, as explained at Wikipedia:Stub. Please feel free to make any comments at WP:SFD regarding this stub type, and in future, please consider proposing new stub types first at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals! This message is a boilerplate, left here as a courtesy, and should not be considered personal in nature.

Jose/José Villarreal[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for making the disambiguation page to make it clearer. However, do you think "Jose Villarreal" (without the accent) should redirect to Jose Villarreal (soccer) (as he doesn't have the accent in his first name, unlike the other people), or to the disambiguation page with the accent, José Villarreal, in case people type it without the accent by mistake? I was thinking it should stay as it is (i.e. the former), with a hatnote on the Jose Villarreal (soccer) article; what are your thought on this? Feudonym (talk) 05:44, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

2012–13 Kuwaiti Federation Cup[edit]

Hi Chanheigeorge. I've created a new article, 2012–13 Kuwaiti Federation Cup and was wondering if you had any input for it? I'm trying to keep it running along the same format as previous season articles but in this years edition it features all 14 teams in one big group. The results section will be massive come the end. I guess i'll group the results into two columns once it starts getting to round 8 onwards. But just wonder what you think and if you can find any sources as to what is actually happening? Are they crowing a champion after 14 rounds or are their additonal rounds to happen? Druryfire (talk) 12:44, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

About 2015 FIFA Club World Cup[edit]

Hi Chanheigeorge,
I've un-redirected the article. The redirect was fine when there was only unreferenced speculation about which countries would bid to host it. I would also have supported a redirect to FIFA Club World Cup, were there not significant media coverage of India's bid to host the tournament. Perhaps it should still be a redirect; the article "Indian bid to host the 2015 FIFA Club World Cup" appears to me very viable.

TemplateData is here[edit]

Hey Chanheigeorge

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Assist stats at 2013–14 UEFA Champions League[edit]

Hi.

At the article 2013–14 UEFA Champions League there is a assist table based on this source, that is clearly wrong since PSG only scored 4 goals. However the table is based only on that source so should we not have the same table as the official source for this tournament (even if it is wrong)? As it is know we say it is based on a source and if the reader goes to check the source, the article no longer match the source. In my opinion it is best to use the source even if it is wrong and add a note for it claiming it does not say the same as the matchreport. Or maybe use the correct table, but then use a note refering to the matchreport, with the correct stats, saying that the source is incorrect on PSG players. Hopefully the table will correct itself on UEFA.com, because initially the matchreport you provided in the edis summary was incorrect as well (I looked at it when making my edit yesterday) and that is know fixed. What should we do? QED237 (talk) 13:51, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

UEFA Europa League[edit]

Hello. What does Nth mean on 2014–15 UEFA Europa League#Teams? --85.165.42.67 (talk) 12:06, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

As it says in explanation it is "League position". QED237 (talk) 12:31, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Could yo please answer. What is the relationship between Nth and League position? --85.165.42.67 (talk) 14:00, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Nth, as in for example, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc., means the team finish 2nd or 3rd or 4th or 5th in the league. If it is confusing, I will change it to something more clear. Chanheigeorge (talk) 14:15, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
To me that is perfectly clear and very easy to understand. QED237 (talk) 14:20, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Yes I was trying to be helpful and I did not like his aggresive response on my talkpage or the fact the he removed my comment here WP:TPO clearly states "The basic rule—with some specific exceptions outlined below—is that you should not edit or delete the comments of other editors without their permission." You cant remove my comment (unless it is vandalism and such). QED237 (talk) 14:19, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Borderline in standings[edit]

Hi

I just opened a discussion at WT:FOOTY, at the section WT:FOOTY#Remove borderline in standings that i thought might be of your interest. One editor keeps inserting borderline in already completed standingstables and i think they should be removed as they always has been? There are no need for borders when group is finished and teams has background colors. I would appreciate your input on the issue. Thank you. QED237 (talk) 14:22, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

names on shirt vs name in wiki-textbox[edit]

Hi,

I wanted to follow up on this discussion, but not start an edit war.

You wrote name on shirt irrelevant, there are players who put nicknames on their shirt like "Kun" for Sergio Aguero, general name conventions should be followed

1. Isn't the naming convention for South Koreans outside of the K-League to use their family name? (such as Park Ji-Sung who is written as Park). So in this case it would be Nam.

2. About the nicknames. All the Brazilian players who have shirts with one name and are written in wiki-boxes with one name - those are nicknames, such as Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, and Fred.

Redirect Seko Fofana[edit]

Hello. I've removed the PROD and restored the redirect. A redirect doesn't need substantial content, and the targeted article does mention the subject, so a person looking for the subject could be redirected there. If you really believe that the article should be deleted, you can bring it up at WP:RFD, but I doubt that it'll get too much support. Also, for future reference, please do not blank the article when you nominate it for WP:PROD. KJ «Click Here» 03:00, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Previous FIFA World Cup meetings[edit]

Hi mate. Which editors have you spoken to about the "Previous meetings" sections in the 2014 World Cup group articles? As far as I can tell, it was only User:Jas39 and myself who expressed any opinion on the subject when it was raised on the talk page, and on the whole, our opinions were both negative. After all, previous meetings between the teams in a group really have no bearing on their clashes this time around; the only relevant one I can see is that Spain and the Netherlands met in the 2010 final, but that is such a freak occurrence that it would get mentioned in the prose match report anyway (I assume all 64 matches will have at least some prose describing the events?). – PeeJay 10:24, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Pre-2004/05 UEFA Cup season style[edit]

Hi Chanheigeorge. I'm trying to bring one of the old UEFA Cup season articles (the 2002–03 UEFA Cup, to be precise) up to the standard of the most recent UEFA Europa League. However, this season was before the competition format changed to include an extended qualifying phase, the group stage and a distinct knockout phase. In 2002–03, there were only seven knockout rounds (including a qualifying round) up to the final. Point is, when I need to create subsidiary pages with the detailed results and draw seeding of the different rounds of the competition, how should I do?

  1. Create a page for each individual round? (I think it's going overboard)
  2. Create a page encompassing all rounds? (Too heavy!)
  3. Create a page for the qualifying round and another for the remaining rounds?
  4. Use UEFA's (weird) clustering: qualifying phase (from qualifying up to the last 16) and knockout phase (quarterfinals up to the final)?

One coincidence I noticed in the clustering approach mentioned in 4. is that team seeding is used in every draw up until the last 16 round. But I don't know if this is a reason to follow this approach in the way we divide the competition results in subsidiary pages. I would really appreciate your input on this subject, because any decision taken would also be applied to other season articles. Regards. Parutakupiu (talk) 00:52, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

I think your three-page division plan might work, as it seems to divide evenly the total number of participating teams and fixtures. For now, I'm assembling everything in my userspace, so I can juggle with the several options and see which one might be the better one. One other thing: in terms of article naming, 1. and 2. are obvious (2002–03 UEFA Cup qualifying round and 2002–03 UEFA Cup first and second round), but what about 3.? 2002–03 UEFA Cup knockout phase?

Wikilinking[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.

I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

This applies to infoboxes, too.

Thanks, and my best wishes.

UNCAF[edit]

All member nations get to enter without having to go through qualification. Therefore saying that all member nations entered in the intro is sufficient as you'll get to see all the teams listed in the group stage section. So yes, having a section just to list the teams is redundant!! "UNCAF" is also wikilinked, therefore if a reader still feels the need to know more, they can click on that and know more about UNCAF including it's member nations!
