Thanks for the official welcome at my start, Luke! I will leave this message as a guide. Even though I still feel quite a newb after nearly 3 months of activity, I gained some experience and surely found the enthousiasm to make edits in Wikipedia. Kareldorado (talk) 09:02, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Belgium national football team[edit]

Great job on the article so far! :)

But just to inform you, I have some more ideas and there are still a lot of stuff to do regarding the team:

Also, an important remark: I initially used to look at the info available on the rsssf website which seems complete, but recently the kbvb has presented a list of all red devils (http://www.belgianfootball.be/nl/alle-rode-duivels), where it seems they are NOT counting the matches at the 1920, 1924 and 1928 olympics. I've sent them a question why, as fifa counts these as full internationals. I did count these matches when creating List of Belgium national football team hat-tricks and Progression of Belgium association football goalscoring record. How will we proceed with this as long as the kbvb does not count these matches? :s

Finally, an easier one, we also need a template such as Template:England national football team to link al these pages together and maybe sort out all the categories too.

Anyway, if you're interested, pick some loose end to work from and enjoy! :) --Pelotastalk|contribs 10:11, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Belgium national football team results – 1910s, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Saint-Ouen, County Ground and William Moore (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.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hanowa[edit]

Please do not remove other people's comments, as you did here and here. If you believe those users to be socks, leave a note under their !votes or report them to an administrator or to WP:SPI but don't just remove them. Since you have argued in favour of keeping the article, I'm sure you can see how it could be perceived as a conflict of interest for you to be removing !votes favouring deletion. Salvio Let's talk about it! 10:42, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Ok, I will never do this again! I only left out the sock-like comments, but will leave a note next time then. Kareldorado (talk) 10:47, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. It's appreciated. Salvio Let's talk about it! 10:59, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Buscemi (DJ)[edit]

No problem Kareldorado. All constructive contributions are welcome. What's important is that we have a more comprehensive coverage of all articles including Dutch and Belgian artists which you did by creating pages for the artists. Fixing of appearance or other presentation matters can always be fixed as long as the article is there. In any case, Wikipedia is a collaborative effort after all and everybody pitches in as much as they can. I realise the table was a copy paste from Dutch with basic translation done. But its perfectly alright to do so. things get fixed later. werldwayd (talk) 19:44, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I agree, thanks for the comment! Kareldorado (talk) 06:15, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Vincent Kompany as Captain[edit]

I'm a little confused how many times Vincent Kompany has been captain now. I just incremented it by 1 (from 22 to 23) after the match against Tunisia, but was he not also captain in the match against Sweden? I'm asking because I notice Template:List_of_captains_of_the_Belgium_national_football_team had not been edited since 26 May. Or did that edit on 26 May already include the match against Sweden on 1 June? Or perhaps the 22nd was first for the match against Luxemburg, and then changed to count for the one against Sweden after the one against Luxemburg was ruled unofficial? If none of the above, I assume the number needs another increment, for the match against Sweden. I made the edits under the assumption that it was correct, though. Sygmoral (talk) 01:42, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Haha, well, the unofficial match against Luxembourg sure made counting confusing here and there, thanks for checking it so carefully! To make it clear: it was 21 before Luxembourg and two official matches were played afterwards. Today it is 23, indeed, I left the "22" at "22" in the table after the match against Sweden since I had heard by then that the encounter against Luxembourg was unofficial. So, your correction at the Records page is also good, but I will put Kompany and Wilmots in the same cage. Thanks, Kareldorado (talk) 06:05, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
P.S.: Nice music clip on YouTube! Kareldorado (talk) 06:40, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Template:Nft[edit]

Hello, when using this template we are supposed to substitute it, meaning we should write it out as {{subst:Nft}}, as is explained at Template:Nft. Thanks, Mattythewhite (talk) 13:32, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Fellaini afro[edit]

I'm just pointing out that Marouane Fellaini did shave off his famous afro and why did you revert my edit? Because it is a notable fact that Fellaini is not only known for his playing, but his huge afro 64.231.203.156 (talk) 07:38, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

He was well-known for his afro, I agree, but he didn't lose a limb - besides, he can let it grow back (so I doubt about the current notability). If you want to keep that part, at least I would add a reference and a phrase like "after x years, he got rid of his famous afro" Kareldorado (talk) 08:58, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

WP:PERM Request[edit]

Your request for rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Kareldorado. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! — xaosflux Talk 12:44, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for enabling it, xaosflux! Kareldorado (talk) 13:33, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Emery Bayisenge, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. GiantSnowman 17:07, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Ok, good that you made me aware of it. I added a reliable source now. Kareldorado (talk) 17:15, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Hmm a tricky one. Some leagues have rules on minimum appearances in order to earn a winner's medal. Do you have appearance stats that showed he played in a majority of games? The honours aren't mentioned on his Soccerway profile; that is usually a good site for honours. GiantSnowman 17:26, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't know about the winner's medal minimum appearances, good you tell me. Often I tend to take Soccerway and/or National Football Teams as background (usually the second one) to check whether a player won the national league or cup. However, in several leagues there is more than just one league and one cup to be challenged, so I tend to look to the Achievements-section of the club he played with for certainty. Anyway, I will try to be more careful. Thanks, Kareldorado (talk) 17:34, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Great, if you need any more help or advice just post on my talk page and I'll be happy to help! GiantSnowman 17:38, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Belgium nft source[edit]

Dear Kareldorado,
I am finally settled back home. I am now looking through my library to find the source for Belgium's national team article. I should soon send you an e-mail with an attached file (probably pdf) with the material.
Thank you for the wait. Regards.--MarshalN20 Talk 20:11, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for posting this! I was about to write something on your talk wall, I thought you would have returned weeks ago. Till soon and already gracias for the efforts, Kareldorado (talk) 20:15, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I have the document in the pdf file, but cannot attach it with the Wikipedia e-mail. I'll send you an e-mail, so please answer back to it so that I can attach the file. Henshaw wrote a wonderful 3-page history of Belgium, which is not much (when compared with others) but is still of great quality.--MarshalN20 Talk 19:36, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Done, I sent you a mail and even another one for certainty. Kareldorado (talk) 20:23, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Belgium national football team[edit]

Hi, I know you actively edit and update the Belgium national football team page, and great work on it by the way! So I wanted to bring this question/comment to you as you are the main editor on the page. The last sentence of the lead section is about the joint top-scorers for the national team: "While Bernard Voorhoof and Paul Van Himst share the goalscoring record, with a tally of 30 conversions each."

I'm all for using synonyms for words so we don't overuse words like score or goal, etc. But I think there is a better way to say "with a tally of 30 conversions each." To me, conversions are more for scoring penalty kicks or for getting a first down in American football rather than a goal-scoring record. Let me know what you think and keep up the great work! Rupert1904 (talk) 17:45, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks in two ways for this message! (Namely for the first sentence and for all the rest.) I totally agree about the "conversions" thing, and I was a little surprised that nobody else made this comment earlier. :) I thought that it might sound natural enough that goalscoring opportunities are "converted". However, I agree that it is a lot more logical to use it only in the context of American football or in case of a penalty kick in association football. You are totally right, the reason I try to find alternatives is that reading 1000 times the words "match", "player" and "goal" gets quite boring. I'll make an exception for this one. You too, keep up the good work! Kareldorado (talk) 17:57, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Completely agree. I hate to see goal and match overused in football pages. Thanks for the consideration and changing the wording! Cheers! Rupert1904 (talk) 05:37, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Radja Nainggolan[edit]

Hi there KEl, from Portugal,

I only tried to insert a source that was not a mere link (like NFT.com) and was at the same time an official source (in this case from an official web of one of the participants in the final). You reverted me, OK, I only tried to arrange the display now (i.e. you don't need the numbers, especially when it's (1) or (2)).

Happy editing, cheers --84.90.219.128 (talk) 00:29, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Ok, and I also appreciate that you wanted to added a better reference. The reason I put "Germinal Beerschot" instead of "Beerschot" is because the club's name changed from the first in the other after Nainggolan left, but with the date of the cup win and the club as mentioned in the infobox there will be few confusion. Keep up the good work, Kareldorado (talk) 05:39, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
By the way, I agree the Cup is a lot more than the final. Unhappily there was not yet an article about the Cup season so I linked to the final as you did. Kareldorado (talk) 05:47, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Standard Liege[edit]

Hey pal. I'm trying to make the English version of Standard Liege a decent page. It had no references, a lot of the links to honours were incorrect and it had no history section whatsoever. It's really difficult though because the official Standard website has a terrible history section, I've also been trying to add some info from the French page. Do you know any resources I could use to expand the page? Such a shame that the club doesn't have a good English page because they have so much tradition. Thanks for any help! Rupert1904 (talk) 02:23, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, good idea, after all Standard is one of the "big three" in Belgium, together with Anderlecht and Club Brugge. In case you have limited knowledge of French and Dutch, there are still a couple of things I could recommend to expand the body and/or referencing:
  • Standard website in French and French Wikipedia + Google Translate = a rough impression on what's important for the English page. Caution needed of course, but most important events and people should pop out.
  • The user MarshalN20 disposes of a book in English about World Soccer written by Richard Henshaw. Very well written, it contains interesting info about worldwide national teams and club teams between the earliest days and +/- 1980s. Ask him about it and send him my greetings (helpful fellow).
  • Perhaps the UEFA website can help you further - after all, Standard played a certain amount of European matches.
  • Be creative! If something seems worthwhile to mention, use Google to find if some source can give supporting evidence for that fact.

Good luck and happy editing, Kareldorado (talk) 07:29, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

P.S.: Do you want to go through Belgium national football team and post some advice to move towards GA or FA on my Peer Review section? Any criticism is welcome and it might attract other reviewers to take a look as well. Kareldorado (talk) 07:42, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
P.P.S.: For a reliable palmares page of Standard, check this Soccerway page: http://int.soccerway.com/teams/belgium/standard-de-liege/230/trophies/ Kareldorado (talk) 11:15, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Brown County State Park[edit]

Kareldorado - thank you for reviewing Brown County State Park. You appear to have a significant amount of interest in Belgium-related topics. As someone interested in history and glass making, I know that at one time Belgium was the world's leading maker of window glass. You may find Hartford City Glass Company interesting. It does not need any reviewing, although any comments are always welcome. TwoScars (talk) 12:57, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Nice to know! Up to now the only things I knew about Belgians that contributed to the US (not so many left our little country) is that some Walloons even settled earlier than the Dutch in New York, and that some sought a better life in the car industry in the surroundings of Detroit at the time it was booming. However, what you pointed is not totally surprising as Belgium has many churches and the quarries of fine white sand to make the glass. One region had so many little ponds because of the quarries that it has been described as the Belgian Lake District - LOL! I'll have an eye at the Glass Company article. Cheers, Kareldorado (talk) 17:48, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
