Hi LRD NO, I've blocked both IP's for 24 hours. Both are addresses from a highly dynamic IP range, . I'm currently not willing to block the entire range due to the possibility of collatoral, but feel free to request page protection if needed, and if it spreads, please report on AN/I, where a possible range block can be discussed. Thanks for reporting! Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 14:28, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

@Martijn Hoekstra: Will do. The page has been protected by another admin for now. Cheers. LRD 14:51, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Players#Career statistics for the MOS, which the table doesn't/didn't abide by fully. GiantSnowman 15:06, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

The column width was to improve clarity and the footnote adds relevant details. I see nothing against the principles of the MOS in question. LRD 15:08, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
The MOS does not have width specified for columns, and it does not have in-line notes about certain appearances, the column is sufficient. Why are you being so difficult? GiantSnowman 16:45, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Adjusting column width is not a violation of any MOS. There is nothing against a footnote further elaborating details either. There is no need to be pedantic about improvements to articles. LRD 16:50, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Where in the MOS I have pointed you to does it allow/show either column width or footnotes? How are they improving the article? If anything the footnote is detracting as it messes with the alignment of the numbers. Stop being disruptive - I would invite you to either self-revert, or to suggest amendments to the MOS (which I would not oppose btw!). GiantSnowman 17:18, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
There is nothing in the MOS to suggest that adjusting column width or adding footnotes is strictly prohibited. Anyway, this has been brought to the attention of WP:FOOTBALL, which you should be aware of by now. We'll take it from there. LRD 17:26, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Notes in new module[edit]


I changed your head-to-head info in the league table to note. Head to ead is for info when teams are tied on points and there has been head to haed matches. I was just wondering if there was a special reson for the use of hth? QED237 (talk) 22:16, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

I have only just replied at WT:FOOTBALL. Not all parameters can be named appropriately to reflect the situation it is used for. For example, Forest Green were deducted three points after the season had started and the parameter used was 'startpoints'. Since this is a points deduction, it would be more appropriate to list it in the relevant cell, under the total points tally. cheers. LRD 22:21, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I am willing to agree but it is a matter of we need to change module as I brought it up again at this discussion but also on several other places. I am not a hundred percent liking the current note setup but that was what has been decided. In my opinion the hth note should be in position column as it affects position and not points. QED237 (talk) 22:24, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
@Qed237: I know @CRwikiCA: and you have been putting a lot of time into the sports table module and I congratulate both of you for the immense work. We must understand the limitations of parameters naming though. Where 'startpoints' may be used to reflect any points deduction, the term does not accurately reflect any points deduction during the season. In the Forest Green case, a note next to the total points tally, using the hth paramter, would surely be more relevant. cheers. LRD 22:36, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I see nothing in the discussion that states notes for points deduction should be specifically listed under parameter 'note'. Would CR be able to add in a new parameter 'note_startpoints_RRR' so that it can be reflected under the more relevant total points (along with the startpoints (deductpoints) in the same cell)? The other consideration would be to rename the startpoints parameter itself to deductpoints since it is not the first time an editor had trouble finding the correct parameter to use. cheere. LRD 22:36, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I realize now that my main issues with the notes has been complaining on talkpage of CRwikiCA. I gave a response at WT:FOOTY which I believe is best place for this discussion, where I want hth-note to be in position column, and a pointnote_FGR in points-column and regular note in team column (even if I dont know when that would be used?). About parametername that is an idea, but we must also know teams can get bonuspints like in last season FA WSL (women). QED237 (talk) 22:44, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
It's too early for me to have a drink here so I must politely decline. :)
I have also brought my points (along with some pints for Xmas) over to WP:FOOTY. I believe it's a simple case of renaming the parameter along with a note parameter. Anyway, let's take it from there. cheers. LRD 22:51, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
