Potsdamer Kickers[edit]

I'm currently updating football club articles in Brandenburg and came to the Potsdamer Kickers article in the process. I can't find any indication that this club is notable in any form, never having played above tier seven Landeliga level it seems. As the creator could you let me know what its notability is before I nominate it for deletion? I looked in the links but its pretty much orphaned as well. Thanks, Calistemon (talk) 08:13, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Calistemon, I created this article a long time ago and thought it was pretty cool that they had never been relegated. Whether or not that was grounds for notability, I do not know. Times have changed a lot! Anyway, the women's team competed in the 2013–14 DFB-Pokal der Frauen, which should qualify for notability. I have added a wikilink to the club in said article. Have a nice weekend! Jared Preston (talk) 10:17, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
No worries, the DFB-Pokal participation of the women's team settles the notability question. I know what you mean, sometimes I look back at an article and wonder why I bothered creating it! Have a good time, Calistemon (talk) 12:46, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Maybe you would be so kind as to add a short section to the article (something like "Women's football team") along those lines. I'm really not up to standards on footie articles of late, spending way too much time on tennis biographies and statistics. Having said that, what with the zillions of footballers qualifying for notability, there's a lot to be done in this field too. I'm very thankful that you've taken time to clean-up and update some of my older articles, especially here about the clubs. That's very kind. German football is so cool, a great atmosphere for any fan, and the action of lower league football in and around Berlin and Brandenburg is some of the best I've ever seen. If it wasn't for the fact that I don't live there any more, or my strange hours at work, then I'd love to be back on the pitch or visiting the stadium or Sportplatz every Saturday. Jumpers for goalposts! :) What actually got you interested in German football, if I may be so curious? Jared Preston (talk) 13:08, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Like you I don't live there anymore and only support my local team, FC Augsburg from a (very long) distance. The only time I ever get back to Germany seems to be during the summer break and I have not seen my favourite club play since 1995! The task of cleaning up all the club articles in Germany is daunting, there is so many. I have previously focused only on Southern Germanh, because of time constraints but doing a boring night shift on a remote mine in Western Australia has given me a bit of spare time.

Re: Hungarian spelling[edit]

Here it is listed as Csöregi on the Twitter page of the Hungarian Tennis Association. I think we should stick to this. here Keroks (talk) 06:12, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

A colleague over at Wikidata also found this news article with the "Csöregi" spelling. Jared Preston (talk) 11:28, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Lina Gjorcheska[edit]

Hi, I'm not sure about this, but should her surname be written as Lina Ǵorčeska? If you put her name in Cyrillic into google translate Лина Ѓорческа, it comes up with that form of spelling when it is romanised. Not too sure about this though as there isn't much information about the letters. Keroks (talk) 13:11, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Not only because all sources spell her name "Gjorcheska", if you see the Wikipedia article "Romanization of Macedonian", it seems that the letter Ѓ can be transliterated as GJ. So it seems the usual spelling as per WTA/ITF et al. is fine. Jared Preston (talk) 13:21, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Tournament flagicons[edit]

Hi Jared, just a gentle reminder that flagicons should only be used for players and not for tournament locations (per WP:Tennis and MOS guidelines). Keep up the good work. --Wolbo (talk) 16:53, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your support in updating ITF player articles to comply with WP:MOSICON. There have been several discussions in the past on the proper use of flagicons in articles, and debates on that topic pop up with some regularity. This shows points of contention still exist regarding their usage but there is a broad consensus that they should not be used for (tournament) locations, even if some sources, such as the ITF website, use them for that purpose. Almost all player articles on the WTA/ATP level have already been cleaned-up so I was surprised to see that so many ITF player articles still use them. If we comply with this part of the guidelines we have a stronger position in any future discussions on using flagicons for the representative nationality of players; it will at least show we are not flagicon-fetishists. --Wolbo (talk) 14:50, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
