Big Ten QBs
|The College football Barnstar|
|I award you this barnstar for your recent efforts to start biography articles for active Big Ten quarterbacks. Keep up the good work! Jweiss11 (talk) 18:18, 6 October 2011 (UTC)|
Inclusion of 'Arena Football League Hall of Fame' section on the WVU Football page
Thank you for your contribution to the West Virginia Mountaineers football page. Judging by your user profile, I can see that you're an avid fan of Arena Football. In the past, I have purposely excluded Arena Football active players, all-stars, and hall of fame inductees from the WVU football page because of the irregular style of football played when compared to the NCAA, NFL, and even the CFL. However, I have created a forum to discuss the relevance of such a section on the article's talk page here before considering removal of the section. I invite you to chime in and present your argument in favor of keeping that section, and in extending the Professional Football section to include players from the Arena League ranks. Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks. Swcrowemessage 21:34, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Re: Arena Football League seasons infobox
I'm not opposed to the re-addition, but I wish something was done about the fact that under the ArenaBowl section of the infobox that it says "Finals champions" and "ArenaBowl Finals MVP". It seems out of place to me. And since the same template is used for NBA seasons is what made me believe it was NBA-specific. Tampabay721 (talk) 16:07, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
NFL color templates
I'm noticing that you are making some additions/changes to the NFL color templates. I'm in the midst of a MAJOR re-write of these templates (take a look at the sandbox versions), and I would appeciate if you could hold off on making any more revisions at the moment since I then need to incorporate those into my versions. I'm just finishing up testing my changes and am now starting to move them out of the sandboxes. I expect I'll be done with this effort today. If you could indulge me for at least a few hours, I would really appreciate it. — DeeJayK (talk) 17:53, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
- Okay, I've moved my changes out of the sandboxes. Please feel free to carry on with your efforts. Also, let me know if you have any input on my recent changes. Thanks! — DeeJayK (talk) 18:53, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
NFL color templates syntax
I noticed that you recently added some teams to one of the NFL color templates, which I am in the process of redesigning and cleaning up. I believe that the syntax of one of your changes may not be what you intended. Your additions was:
|Los Angeles Kiss = color:#ACACAC
I believe your intention was to make all of these names take the same color. To achieve this, the line which defines the color needs to come last, like this:
|Los Angeles Kiss = color:#ACACAC
In this way, the first two references are merely nicknames which direct to the last one. These nicknames have been added simply so that alternate spellings will not break the color template. I have corrected this edit, but I just wanted to give you a heads-up about how the syntax works in case you make similar additions in the future. Thanks! — DeeJayK (talk) 04:32, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
A barnstar for you!

AFL jersey numbers
Hi, I was wondering if you could answer a question for me since you seem to know quite a bit about the Arena Football League. Are the labeled jersey numbers on the AFL website from last season or are they their current numbers? I saw you reverted an edit on the Portland Thunder roster that stated the numbers haven't been assigned yet. I'm a little confused and some clarification would help me a lot. Thanks. —Brian Halvorsen (talk) 00:49, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Re: Portland Thunder "Also See"
I would point you to WP:SEEALSO, "The links in the 'See also' section do not have to be directly related to the topic of the article because one purpose of 'See also' links is to enable readers to explore tangentially related topics." I hope this clears it up. —Brian Halvorsen (talk) 00:03, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
- I would also advise against re-linking to the same article in templates (i.e. Template:Portland Thunder). A link to the page appears on the header and under "The Franchise".
Also proper nouns in the template should not be capitalized.Sorry, I meant only proper nouns in the template should be capitalized. Thanks for your hard work and collaborative effort. Have a good day! —Brian Halvorsen (talk) 00:15, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
- Just because something is common doesn't mean it's in line with policy. Per Wikipedia:Navigation templates#Navigation templates provide navigation within Wikipedia, "Avoid repeating links to the same article within a template." —Brian Halvorsen (talk) 00:56, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
- And templates are not apart the article as they are their own entity, so adding the teams to the see also is appropriate in my opinion. —Brian Halvorsen (talk) 01:04, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tyler Fredrickson, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cabrillo High School (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.
