Roster template edits[edit]

Please put all names of players involved in your edits in the edit summaries, so we can look back at the history and find when a guy was cut if we need to.►Chris NelsonHolla! 15:32, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Nkang/PUP[edit]

When teams make their active/ list distinctions at the start of camp, most of them report their players as going on Active/PUP. This is only for PR. In fact, if you go to the official transaction wire (the only one available online is at Pro Football Weekly; NFL.com isn't official), you'll see that a lot of these players actually went on Active/Non-Football Injury or Active/Non-Football Ilness. Nkang was one of these players, and now he has gone to Reserve/Non-Football Injury. Their PR just doesn't bother to report this technicality. Pats1 T/C 20:16, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

The thing is, Nkang was probably reported to have gone on Active/PUP in the first place -- most guys who go on Active/NF-Inj. or Active/NF-Ill. are reported by news outlets and even PR (or in this year's case, Belichick even said guys were on PUP who went on NF-Inj., and that proves how much of a technicality it is). But once you go on Active/PUP, your choices are the active roster, cut, IR, or Reserve/PUP. You don't switch from Active/PUP or Reserve/NF-Inj. I guarantee you ProFW will confirm this in a few days.

1995 NFL Draft[edit]

Sorry, I meant the 1995 NFL Draft. as far as I can tell, the Jags got the first pick in the expansion draft, and got to pick ahead of the Panthers in the regular draft as well. Any idea why? --2008Olympian chitchatseemywork 04:30, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Jags template[edit]

Why did you put the count to 54, when there were clearly 75 players on the roster? Reply on my talk page. RevanFan (talk) 16:10, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Reverting table[edit]

Reverting table back to include Games Back. Here is my reasoning:

NFC: http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/standings?season=2010&groupId=7

AFC: http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/standings?season=2010&groupId=8

Added it because the season is winding down, and the games back stat will give users an opportunity to see how far back there team is from first place and where they will seed in the Playoffs. Hope no one messes it up and accepts it as a useful, sourced information for their favorite team! Fresh Prince Carlton (talk) 22:03, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Now please leave it alone

See the non-mobile version of that page: http://espn.go.com/nfl/standings?season=2010&groupId=7 No "games back" here, and it may be because the mobile version uses an MLB template. Eagles 24/7 (C) 22:08, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Then why do I see that stat in Madden games and on TV? Specifically when they are showing a teams chances during the last few games of the season? It's a relevant stat, and it's not hurting anything. And if you follow by the simple subtracting logic, then what is the point of showing that the Lions are out, when someone can do simple math to figure it out? And it's not on a stat sheet anyways. Fresh Prince Carlton (talk) 22:20, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

For one thing, the entire column will be useless when the playoffs start. Teams that are eliminated from the playoffs are not obvious enough that an average fan can automatically know they are eliminated by looking at their record in the division, because of wild card teams. It takes simple math to figure out the "games back" stat, so by your standards, why include it? Eagles 24/7 (C) 23:04, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Template:2010 AFC South standings[edit]

Next time check to make sure you haven't removed syntax from the template that altered what it looks like on the main article. Removing the noinclude tag make a list of division templates appear on the main article. — Moe ε 21:09, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

"Heinrich Severloh‎"[edit]

The Ammo weight is highly relevant as this mans story is in dispute. The calculation aims to prove the impressibility of the claim he killed 3000 GI's on D-Day & as such I have reverted your edit

NFL tiebreakers[edit]

I'm sorry. You're right about percentage, but still wrong on the tiebreaker, it's not strength of schedule. They are both 3-1 on strength of schedule.

TU Delft[edit]

Recently you made some changes in this article. You don't explain what. It is totallly invisble what you did. Mayby you only removed only an empty line. Please explain. Salix2 (talk) 21:08, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

I removed some empty lines and changed a single word in a poorly worded sentence. All this is clearly visible in the edit history. DragonFury (talk) 21:15, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Invitation to look at edits on IQ reference chart[edit]

I see the article IQ reference chart has been tagged for expert review since October 2012. As part of a process of drafting a revision of that article in my user sandbox, I am contacting all Wikipedians who have edited that article since early 2009 for whom I can find a user talk page.

I have read all the diffs of all the edits committed to the article since the beginning of 2009 (since before I started editing Wikipedia). I see the great majority of edits over that span have been vandalism (often by I.P. editors, presumably teenagers, inserting the names of their classmates in charts of IQ classifications) and reversions of vandalism (sometimes automatically by ClueBot). Just a few editors have referred to and cited published reliable sources on the topic of IQ classification. It is dismaying to see that the number of reliable sources cited in the article has actually declined over the last few years. To help the process of finding reliable sources for articles on psychology and related topics, I have been compiling a source list on intelligence since I became a Wikipedian in 2010, and I invite you to make use of those sources as you revise articles on Wikipedia and to suggest further sources for the source on the talk pages of the source list and its subpages. Because the IQ reference chart article has been tagged as needing expert attention for more than half a year, I have opened discussion on the article's talk page about how to fix the article, and I welcome you to join the discussion. The draft I have in my user sandbox shows my current thinking about a reader-friendly, well sourced way to update and improve the article. I invite your comments and especially your suggestions of reliable sources as the updating process proceeds. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 20:36, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

2013 Jacksonville Jaguars season[edit]

Why did you revert to a revision that spoke of starting the 2013 season in the future tense? Clearly the Jags have already started their season. If you want a source for their 0-6 record, try NFL.com. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 16:08, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

I missed the the change to "are" which is valid. But the sentence about the 6 losses is entirely superfluous. DragonFury (talk) 21:11, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I guess so given that their record is shown in the box on the right. Thanks for the explanation. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 23:28, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Feedback on Contradiction in first touchdown scored[edit]

Hello DragonFuryI saw your comment on the 49ers very first play to ever happen. When I was reading this I was very excited about it because I never knew about this and I am huge 49ers fan. I have to say I like how you went step by step on the play that happened like an announcer it was really great. I would recommend linking the players and the stadium so we know who they are.--BrantDaMerc (talk) 09:51, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Just ignore the notification that said I reverted your edit! I meant t hit the "Thank" button. Instead, I hit the rollback button. CorkythehornetfanTalk 18:27, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
