Football hooliganism copy edit[edit]

Hi Chrismorey. I'm a coordinator of the Guild of Copy Editors, and I've just had a quick look at Football hooliganism#Europe, where' you've placed a {{copy edit-section}} tag. Copy editing addresses things like spelling, grammar, sentence and paragraph flow and the like, not content issues such as those reflected in the other tags you placed there. It isn't really worth copy editing until the content is reasonably stable, so I'm going to remove that tag for the time being and place a {{GOCEreviewed}} template on the talk page. This doesn't mean we won't do it, just that some time in the future would be better than now. I hope that's OK. Best regards, --Stfg (talk) 18:53, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello again. Thanks for your reply on my talk page, and for accepting this. I've made a proposal at Talk:Football hooliganism#Proposal to split about splitting the article, in the hope that it will be easier to address the POV problems there if the article is of a more manageable size. Your views there would be welcome. Kind regards, --Stfg (talk) 16:05, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

British English[edit]

Hello Chris. Re your edits on Accrington F.C., please be aware that in British English, club can be both plural and singular, and is generally the former when referring to football clubs. Many singular nouns that are suggestive of a group of people (club, team etc) are commonly treated as plurals in British English. Cheers, Number 57 22:42, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry you don't agree about "club" being plural, but it's a fact that it is, and it's certainly not unencyclopedic or informal in any shape or form. I completely agree with you about rooting out cliché-laden fan material from club articles, but this issue is not one of those problems. Number 57 23:42, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
And if you want to comment on the Luxembourg issue, your comments are more than welcome at Talk:Luxembourg general election, 2013. Number 57 23:45, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
The singular is not preferable - a simple search like the one performed by that person does not distinguish between the context of the usage. For instance, it would pick up the sentence "The former Spanish youth international's most recent club was Exeter City" as being "club was". I also noticed you used the word "it" to describe the club - whilst was and were are used alternatively, "it" sounds incredibly awkward and should never be used. Anyway, if you intend to continue with your stance, please discuss the issue on WT:FOOTY - as you can see from the response to your initial post and your edits being reverted by editors other than myself, other editors have also opposed your usage of the singular. Thanks, Number 57 11:06, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Offering adoption[edit]

Hey Chrismorey, I'm MrScorch6200 and I am offering you adoption! If you would like me to adopt you, please say so! --MrScorch6200 (t c) 08:13, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

thanks, I'd almost forgotten about my adoption request. I've been editing away and picking up the basics, but it would be great to have an experienced editor whom I could consult - so yes, please adopt me, whatever the formalities are.
I'm based in New Zealand, am a retired IT consultant, and regard my self as a generalist rather than an expert in a specific domain. One area I've taken some interest in is football (soccer) and I've noted that English football has more than its share of illiterate articles and opinionated editors. I've done a bit of cleanup and disambiguation too, but not very systematically.
One question I have - how does one search for a character string in the text of an article? The Help says that a key combination such as Ctrl-F should do it, but it doesn't on Firefox which I use. As an example, for disambiguation, it's clearly desirable to be able to find the ambiguous word or phrase without reading through the whole article. Chrismorey (talk) 19:58, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
Cool, I'll get the adoption process going.
I am a regular editor, WP:DRN assistant, rollbacker, reviewer, new page patroller, and on the WP:GOCE.
Apparently, FireFox just dropped support for ctrl+F. Maybe a quick Google search will help you out. (Try ctrl+T)--MrScorch6200 (t c) 20:06, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
I downloaded the latest FireFox (25) to try it out, and it works. The bar pops up on the bottom of the browser. --MrScorch6200 (t c) 20:16, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
thanks I've tried it & see the box Chrismorey (talk) 20:47, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
