ITF Women's Circuit stats[edit]

Hey, is the statistics page gonna be left empty this whole year? :( Unfortunately I don't have the time to do them anymore (you saw how 2013 ended) so its either we have to do something about it, like get someone to do it or we have to get rid of it. Because right now its not looking so good being empty there..

Question about notability of a tennis player[edit]

Hello. A few months ago I made an article about the Bulgarian tennis player Borislava Botusharova, but it got deleted, because the player didn't pass the notability guidelines for tennis players. This week she is in the national team for the 2014 Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone matches, so I want to ask you a few questions. Will she be considered notable in case she plays in one of the matches this week, so if I made the article it won't get deleted again? And I also want to ask you if there's a way to bring back that deleted article, so I don't have to write it again? Kr1s71an (talk) 21:24, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes, when Botusharova makes her debut for the Bulgaria Fed Cup team, then she is deemed notable by Wikipedia:WikiProject Tennis standards. If you don't want to write it again, there are a number of avenues you can go down. You can ask a sysop directly, you can ask on your talk page by using the {{admin help}} template, or you can follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Deletion review.

Can you help me complete these articles:

Thanks so much! Banhtrung1 13:15, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

You contributed very much at the 2014 ITF Women's Circuit. Can you also contribute at the 2014 ITF Men's Circuit? Banhtrung1 03:58, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Jeff Schlupp[edit]

Hi, the reference you added for Jeff Schlupp not being capped by Germany under-19s doesn't work; do you have access to one that is live? Cheers, Mattythewhite (talk) 21:37, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

From another source, try this. Jared Preston (talk) 22:19, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Unpleasant message[edit]

Your message here seems to be in violation of Assuming good faith policy. Do not call me, or my actions a pile of shit!--Mishae (talk) 19:50, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

It referred to WP:DTTR, the "regulars" trying to make this project more accessible. So much for assuming good faith... Jared Preston (talk) 22:30, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Regulars like him, no, but me who archives and marks dead urls yes.--Mishae (talk) 14:16, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Stanislava Komarova[edit]

Thanks for this: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Stanislava_Komarova&diff=602541938&oldid=602511416 . This happened by a failure in the sources. I found it odd that in 2 different sources had 2 different names. I would not have noticed it if not for your reversal. Janperson (talk) 17:55, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Source?[edit]

Hi Jared Preston, what is your source for this spelling of the name of Marie-Gaianeh Mikaelian? This source and this one write "Gaianeh". Regards, Vinkje83 (talk) 16:59, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Apart from the two which I added in that very edit (news.ch and Neue Zürcher Zeitung), look here (Blick), here (Bieler Tagblatt), here (swissinfo) and here (Radio Télévision Suisse). Seeing as she is Swiss, I'd assume Swiss sources are more likely to spell her name correctly (with diacritics etc.) than the BBC or WTA who usually don't bother.

Thank you for your comprehensive and convincing answer. Greetings, Vinkje83 (talk) 22:06, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
