FC Schalke 04[edit]

Several reasons why I reverted your edit:

1) What does ""indicate EU player quota eligibility" even mean?
2) No other football club article has this.
3) Do you not see "Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality." above every single football squad list?
4) The years that the players were born in are unsourced.

I would suggest you bring up your proposed notes on WP:FOOTY before re-adding them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.45.85.82 (talk) 22:18, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Please engage in discussion before making controversial edits. Not to mention your link to the Barcelona article relates to Spanish clubs. Schalke 04 is not a Spanish club. So, finally, please discuss here and/or bring up your SUGGESTED notes on WP:FOOTY, thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.45.85.82 (talk) 22:57, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

September 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not introduce incorrect information into articles, as you did to Kevin-Prince Boateng. Your edits appear to be vandalism and have been reverted. If you believe the information you added was correct, please cite references or sources or discuss the changes on the article's talk page before making them again. If you would like to experiment, use the sandbox.

The "Indictment" section you added to Kevin-Prince Boateng was not supported by the source you provided and seems to be for the most parts coming from your imagination, e.g. the claim that he sabotaged brakes and engines of 13 vehicles, that he had to pay a "bribe" to the judiciary panel or that he faced prison time. With your edits at Jefferson Farfán you also introduced ridiculous claims ("Farfán is known for his expeditious acceleration and dribbling speed as his supersonic speed") which were not supported by a source (not even in humorous exaggeration). Please stop introducing errors to articles. --Jaellee (talk) 17:38, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize pages by deliberately introducing incorrect information, as you did at Kevin-Prince Boateng, you may be blocked from editing. The references you provided for the gestational surrogacy and egg donation of Boateng's children do not support your claim. Stop introducing errors to articles. --Jaellee (talk) 16:36, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Christian Wetklo may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • '''Christian Wetklo''' (({{IPA-de|ˈkʁis.ti̯an ˈvɛt.klɔ}}; born 11 January 1980 in [[Marl, North Rhine-Westphalia]]) is a [[

September 2014[edit]

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Please understand we may not include personal information such as names and dates of birth of children or personal wealth where that information is not verified with reference to reliable published sources. Struway2 (talk) 09:13, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Sourced information mentioning Mr Boateng's 2 children and estimated net worth is not vandalism but removing well-sourced information regarding the 2 children of Mr Boateng and Mr Boateng's estimated wealth by Struway2 could be considered vandalism. If anyone is to be blocked from editing for vandalism it could be Struway2. Mesling 09:36, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
I've tried to explain this before at Talk:Kevin-Prince Boateng. The Wikipedia policy WP:Biographies of living persons is strict on reliable sourcing for material about living people. I'll copy the wording of the WP:Biographies of living persons#Challenged or likely to be challenged section here:
Wikipedia's sourcing policy, Verifiability, says that all quotations and any material challenged or likely to be challenged must be attributed to a reliable, published source using an inline citation; material not meeting this standard may be removed. This policy extends that principle, adding that contentious material about living persons that is unsourced or poorly sourced should be removed immediately and without discussion. This applies whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable, and whether it is in a biography or in some other article. Material should not be added to an article when the only sourcing is tabloid journalism. When material is both verifiable and noteworthy, it will have appeared in more reliable sources.
For Mr Boateng's older son, you supplied two sources. The first, an Italian gossip website called socialchannel.it, gave his name as Jermaine. The second, a photo-hosting site aimed at Borussia Dortmund fans called heja-bvb.de, was a picture-caption which gave his name as Jerome Prince. Neither is a reliable source, and neither verifies the boy's name as Jermaine-Prince Boateng II, which is what you added to the article.
For Mr Boateng's younger son, you supplied one source, a celebrity-gossip piece on the website of a Cameroon radio station which said that although the singer Rihanna had tweeted that she fancied Mr Boateng, he was in fact taken and had a young baby with his current partner. It's not a particularly reliable source, and it gave the child's name as plain Maddox Prince, not the Maddox-Prince Boateng III that you added to the article.
For Mr Boateng's estimated wealth, you supplied one source, a site called celebritynetworth.com where the page cited, dated 18 June of this year (scroll down this index page to check), consists of a label at the top saying "Net worth: $20 million" followed by a copy of sections of the then-current revision of the Wikipedia article...
Following the BLP policy isn't an option. It's something we have to do if we edit articles that refer to living people. Thank you for your understanding. Struway2 (talk) 10:10, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Overlinking[edit]

For your information:

We do not put square brackets round plain words that most reader of English would understand in the context they are being used, nor do we normally put square brackets round such things as countries and nationalities. For items that it is sensible to link, we only link ONCE in the main body of the article. Please read the section of the Manual of Style called WP:LINK to see this set out in detail.

We do not link words like arm, neck, health, love, shoulder, singer, dancer or ball. We certainly don't link words like "arm" twice in three lines or "ball" twice in eight words.

Please stop it. It's disruptive.

Again, thank you for your understanding. Struway2 (talk) 13:37, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
