No probs, I'll take a proper look later today when I have time. GiantSnowman 09:53, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Right, so you believe 96.249.10.132 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) and 174.48.102.195 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) are the same? They could be, but as one is from New York and the other from Florida I doubt it, unless they have travelled. However, they could be two editors working together. As for your "BS" edit summary - yes, not ideal, but I'm sure you won't repeat it. GiantSnowman 16:24, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, 96.236.54.105 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) is no doubt the same as 96.249.10.132 - any vandalism simply revert, warn, and report. GiantSnowman 18:42, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Fabian Castillo - Deisgnated Player[edit]

I understand the ESPN article saying Castillo would be only a DP for one year, but at the time that article was written, the young designated player rule did not exist. MLS still lists Fabian Castillo as a DP because he is considered a young "DP" (who's cap hit is under the 350k for a normal DP, but his salary + transfer fee is above the cap hit of a young DP for his age category.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Prizby (talkcontribs) 16:14, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

I never intentially/knowingly touched/changed Sharlie. MLS press box is a media sourced used by media covering MLS updated by MLS themselves. I am pretty sure the league would know who their DP's are and are not...at least I'd hope they would Prizby (talk) 02:52, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Juninho Pernambucano-Message for Mikemor92.[edit]

Hi ;)

I don,t wanna start directly with "why did you change" or "why did you do this",I think it would be nicer if I start with: "How are you"? I know you were changing my information about Juninho,s career and I know those information are correct,but in the other hand we can,t denied that my information our incorrect,I,m following Juninho since he start playing Lyon and trust me. I was watching almost all Juninho games in Lyon shirt,Al Gharafa,Vasco da Gama return and now in New York Red Bulls,now Juninho plays for New York Red Bulls,his debut for New York Red Bulls happend in 7th February against Malmo FF,Juninho played 36minutes,he scored first goal for New York Red Bulls against New England Revolution in the end they lost 3:1. So far Juninho played 5games for New York Red Bulls scoring 1goal and made 1assistance,today we can expect his debut in MLS against Portland Timbers.

PS:I decided to write a little/basic information for every Juninho games in New York Red Bulls t-shirt.


Thank you and have a nice day.Juninhoslo (talk) 22:04, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Problem[edit]

Hello, as you have noticed by now I have been creating some MLS articles for new players and for some reason when you see the article all you find is the infobox and intro. I also just noticed that you asked why I keep doing that instead of adding the ref and templates and the rest of the information. Well here is the reason: I actually do add the rest. For some reason when I click save it does not appear. Now I will admit I have been going to fast when it comes to creating these articles. I do miss some details out but I do make sure to add the reference (mainly to the match-center on MLSsoccer.com), the squad template, the categories, statistics box, and a section for a little biography. I base it off my little template which I created for myself here (of course it is modified when creating the player page to fit the league and nation of the player). So basically, I don't know what has been happening as this is a problem that only occurred now. I am hoping that I can fix it today as I bet there are more pages to be created soon.

And also good job with your work, going through literally every player and updating that player. It is something that I never see when it comes to Japanese, Korean, and Aussie soccer. Good to see someone taking the initiative. Anyway if you have anything else to tell me then don't be afraid to go to my talk page. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 00:28, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Player statistics[edit]

You put all of your player statistics for the Sounders under 2012 for their match yesterday (which is part of 2013). Just add a new row to the career statistics table next time. SounderBruce 04:36, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Oh. I only saw the huge wall of edits and clicked on Caskey (by random chance)...unlucky. Thanks for updating the players, though. SounderBruce 05:32, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Deletions[edit]

Hi. You deleted some parameters at the Nate Freiman article. Including parameters for death date, death place, final team, final year, stats, HOF, etc. I don't see any edit summary. Was wondering why. Thanks.--Epeefleche (talk) 02:54, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

You can keep your responses here, so the conversation is in one place, and easier for all to follow. Those parameters are appropriate. We keep them in the infobox because: a) they do no harm; and b) they will be there for if/when they are to be filled out, such as when the person dies; and c) there is not a good reason to delete them once another editor has put them in. I would appreciate it if you would put them back in. thanks. PS -- thanks as well for being so quick to update the ibox with the additions.--Epeefleche (talk) 04:19, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
For as long as I've done work on baseball pages, we don't keep those stuff on there. – Michael 04:22, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
It's not baseball-specific. There is nothing particular about baseball in this regard. It is a project-wide issue. And for as long as I've done work on baseball pages, which is even a couple of years longer (and I've been editing the project for 80,000 more edits or so), my experience has been the opposite of yours. And it makes no sense. It uses up zero space in the article. And is there for when he dies. Etc. Saving the work of adding it back then. So, I'll reiterate my request, unless you can point me to something that says you should be deleting other editors' additions in this regard. Thanks.--Epeefleche (talk) 04:36, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
I'll ping a sysop whom I recall has had views on the subject of deleting as-yet-unused parameters -- such as date of death for a living person -- from parameters. Also, Jweiss, who has over 100k edits and edits many sports articles. Perhaps he will share his views. And I think Baseball Bugs has also spoken to the issue in the past. We could always ping him.--Epeefleche (talk) 04:50, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Epeefleche, thanks for dropping me a line. A good chunk of my editing concerns college sports coaches. I've done a lot of work to develop Template:Infobox college coach and make use of it often. My practice is to always include all fields. My feeling is that this promotes consistent usage and formatting of the infobox, and makes updating and expansion of the article more efficient. Jweiss11 (talk) 06:32, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Well you do have a point Jweiss, but when I started editing on Wikipedia, including all fields didn't seem to be in everybody's interests so I pretty much just followed their path. – Michael 06:37, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hey, guys, I also work extensively with player and coach infoboxes, overlapping many of the same areas as Jweiss. I have a somewhat difference perspective on the inclusion of unused template fields than Jweiss does, staking out what I believe to be the sensible middle ground. I'll provide two examples:

1. Infobox college coach -- Transcluded on over 17,000 articles, this infobox is used for coaches of football, basketball, baseball, and most other college sports. Most of its fields are generally applicable to all sports; some are sport specific, including links to external websites such College Football Data Warehouse, the College Football Hall of Fame, the Basketball Hall of Fame, as well as "bowl record" and "tournament record" which have uses for some sports and not others. My preferred manner of completing this infobox template is to include all unused parameters that are currently used or likely to be used in the future (e.g., date of death, place of death), but to omit those that are certain never to be used (e.g., the basketball hall of fame parameter for a retired football coach).

2. Infobox NFL player -- Transcluded on over 11,000 articles, this infobox is used for players of American professional football, and it is in the process of being modified to be used as the sole infobox for NFL coaches, too. It is one of the largest infobox templates on Wikipedia, with over 90 fields and numerous options to cover players who have played in the NFL, AFL, CFL, USFL and various arena leagues, as well as coaching options, and statistical options. The likelihood that all optional parameters will every be used for any single article is virtually nil. In a similar manner to my take on the college coach infobox above, I include those unused parameters that are certain to be used in the future (e.g., place of death, date of death), but do not include those unused parameters that are unlikely to apply (e.g., coaching options for retired players) or will never apply (e.g., CFL and arena options for retired players who played exclusively for NFL teams). I also always include those fields for the infobox photo, image size, caption and alt text description because there is a strong likelihood these fields will be used at some point. The NFL player infobox also includes several options that are no longer used after the player's retirement (e.g., current team, roster status), and I delete these upon the player's retirement. Including all 90+ fields of the template in individual uses, when fewer than 20 are typically used in any given instance is both impractical and confusing to most users. When 60+ of the fields are unused, and likely never to be used, it's also an invitation to inappropriate experimentation by inexperienced editors and vandalism by others.

I view my approach as the "common sense" perspective in deciding which unused parameters to include. On this point, Jweiss and I disagree. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 07:47, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Dirt -- let's focus on the issue at hand. The specific parameters deleted from the Nate Freiman article. (I'm not sure its worth a quibble here as to whether there are any common sense exceptions, if that point does not apply to these deletions.)
All of the deletions in the Nate Freiman article were, as now more clearly indicated, to parameters such as death date, death place, final team, final year, stats, HOF, etc. Deleting those parameters, already entered into an article, is unhelpful. Such deletions will only lead to additional unnecessary work by editors -- once a person dies, etc. -- and will lower the chance that once the person dies any editor will think to add the info to the infobox. The same goes for deleting such parameters from Persondata.--Epeefleche (talk) 15:21, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Epeefleche, in direct answer to your more limited question, no, the death date, death place, final year, final team parameters should not be deleted from Infobox NFL player (or Infobox MLB player in your example), even when they are presently unused. All such parameters are certain to be used in the future, as I alluded to above. The stats parameters are somewhat more interesting. The skill positions will often use four to six of the maximum of six stat parameters; lineman rarely use more than three. When it is obvious that the particular player will use fewer than the maximum number of six stats parameters, I will typically trim the two or three unused ones as a space-saving measure. Hope that clarifies what I consider best practice. Other opinions may vary. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 18:43, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks on the first part of your response. As to the second part -- you are again perhaps leading the discussion away on a tangent that does not apply to the case at hand. This is a baseball player -- not a football player -- and it's not obvious as to how many stat parameters he will use.--Epeefleche (talk) 19:12, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
I would think the bottom-line question is, what is the benefit to such deletions, and what is the detriment? If a given template parameter has never been used in any article, it would seem to be unneeded. But unless it clutters up the appearance of the article to have empty parameters, why mess with it? ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 22:08, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Epee, it's my understanding that many baseball editors limit their use of the stats parameters of Infobox MLB player to the so-called "triple crown" stats, although I have seen repeated threads on the WikiProject Baseball talk page regarding this particular issue. You may want to raise the issue there to gauge current consensus on point. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 23:12, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
It varies. Some baseball editors also limit their editing to not filling in persondata. Practice follows interest, in some regard. Nobody is required to edit any parameter -- persondata included. There are a number of stat parameters. It is rare if not unheard of for an article to go beyond the template number. But certainly where an editor is known for stolen bases, slugging percentage, etc., it would be appropriate to reflect that, and you will see it. Good editors apply good common sense. What Mike has done is delete all manner of parameter that is not yet used -- that is the issue we are discussing in this string -- including empty death date, death place, final team, final year, stats, HOF. I've asked him to restore them, various editors have weighed in (three with more than 80,000 edits, who edit many sports articles, and have done so for many years). I'm just waiting for Mike to revert himself as I've requested, since his argument for deleting those parameters was that we delete blank parameters on sports articles.
Once again -- so I make clear what the point is, and the conversation is not misdirected on a tangent -- the point of this string relates to Mike's deletion of empty parameters for death date, death place, final team, final year, stats, HOF, etc at the Nate Freiman page. As I see it, there is pretty much unanimous response to his assertion that this is normal, that it is not. If editors start doing this to infoboxes and persondata, that will be a problem for thousands of boxes.--Epeefleche (talk) 04:22, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Kupono Low[edit]

According to the rules we use on Wikipedia:WikiProject Football Kupono Low, having been capped three times for Puerto Rico, is a Puerto Rican player, even if he is no longer eligible to play for them.

Re: I have a question for you....[edit]

Well first of all I don't think this would be a soccer problem on wikipedia considering that we are the only soccer league in the world that actually has a draft. Secondly, overall I like the idea. Both the NBA and MLS have drafts and if it works for the NBA (which is what it looked like) then why not MLS. My only concern/question is this: With the NBA it is easy. Yes, they draft both college players and foreign based guys but it is all under 1 draft. Here in MLS we have 4 different drafts. How would we go about this? --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 02:33, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Recent edits on football/soccer articles - re[edit]

Actually, they are to be removed per the categorization guidelines. You see, the state specific cats are sub/child cats of Category:American soccer players by state, which is in turn a sub/child cat of Category:American soccer players. Thus, when they are moved to the state cat, they are in the parent cat. "A page or category should rarely be placed in both a category and a subcategory or parent category (supercategory) of that category", and that cat is not a non-diffusing category, thus the players should only go into one. This is the reason why Category:American players of American football has so few articles, because they have been properly moved into the sub/child category.

Youth years[edit]

You wrote: high school teams are not to be included in the infobox. Template indicates that it is "a list of clubs that the player was a member of as a youth, one per attribute, earliest to latest." High school teams appear to qualify. I didn't revert, but would be interested in this precedent, particularly when European youth development teams are displayed when the players are the same age as North American high schoolers. Walter Görlitz (talk) 06:50, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Per your recent edit at James Kiffe, I'm also interested in learning more about this. Is this some sort of set precedent you are following and can you point me towards it? Thanks,
GauchoDude (talk) 22:44, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
"The youth section is for youth/college teams only." - A high school team is seemingly by definition a youth team as (essentially) every member is U18. To play devil's advocate, I'd make the point that a collegiate team shouldn't be recognized as (essentially) every member is over 18. If you're legally an adult (in the United States), I don't see how it can be classified as part of a "youth career". I recognize that very, very recently at the extreme upper eshcelons, the elite-level players are steering clear of playing with their high schools to play with youth academies due to recent restrictions upon having to pick and choose one or the other coupled with the increasing presence of youth academies. However, that doesn't change the status of high school soccer being youth.
"Unless there was consensus reached about high school teams that I didn't know about, they don't count as youth." - Actually based on the above, I'd like to see the consensus that shows that high school doesn't count as youth. Surely you must be referring to some sort of Wikipedia Manual of Style so please point me in that direction so I can educate myself.
Thanks in advance for your assistance and I look forward to reading more about this.

We noticed though that when you edited United States men's national under-17 soccer team, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Niigata (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.

It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements.

Grant Kerr[edit]

Hey, it seems that Kerr's page has been modified again to include fraudulent info like playing in Fredrikstad or scoring goals for Digenis (statistics on the Cypriot FA site show 0 goals for him that season). I'm rather new to this, so is there any way to prevent those edits from happening and revert the page, because there seems to be a conflict of interest with the player himself possibly trying to make himself look better. Fmurto (talk) 17:53, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

All right, thanks for the tip. Fmurto (talk) 21:46, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

NYCWikiKid[edit]

...has done it again, created more categories. I've sent him a final warning. Please let me know if you see any more. GiantSnowman 09:01, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Category:Washington Darts (1967-69) players and Category:Washington Darts (1970–71) players and Category:Washington Darts (1967-69) and Category:Washington Darts (1970-71) and Category:Washington Darts (1967-69) seasons and Category:Washington Darts (1970-71) seasons are the only ones I don't think you've already picked up on, but you might want to review his contribs just in case. GiantSnowman 18:26, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
I don't really want to take to CFD seeing as I have threatened to block him - any chance you could please? GiantSnowman 18:36, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, appreciated. GiantSnowman 18:43, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I suggest you start a discussion about template format at WT:FOOTY, inviting NYCWikiKid, as this requires further input. For what it's worth it seems he is ignoring past consensus and relying entirely on his own research to make his edits. GiantSnowman 10:19, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Timbers history[edit]

Thanks for that edit. I had used the same structure from the Vancouver and Seattle articles, and in copying & pasting I'd left in the honors from the Whitecaps list. Thanks for catching the error! -- Fifty7 (talk) 02:38, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Forgotten NASL and USL Pro players[edit]

Hey, I was bored so I decided to make a quick list of current NASL and USL Pro players who are notable but who have not been given a page yet. I barely have time so if you want to create a few the list is here. Cheers (PS: I reserve the right to create Gagandeeps because... ya... reasons). --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 04:10, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Ha, I know. Like I said, I was bored and made this list quickly. I probably would have seen, via sources, that he had a "Z" instead of an "S" when creating. Eitherway, it is fixed so no point talking on about it. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 05:26, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I just had a quick look at half of them and other than the fact that some of them might be in need of an update or revamp to remain consistent with the rest of the league I did not really notice what was wrong... then I looked at the Arsenal F.C. squad template and others and I now realize what you meant. Anyway, I don't mind taking on the job, will update you later. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 02:13, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Hey, just popped by to say sorry for not being active in the NASL/USL Pro template discussions. I have been busy in "the real world" so I don't have as much time to review and forumate an opinion or view. I will try to get back to it today but if not then certainly tomorrow. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 23:04, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Following the .... what?[edit]

You edited here but left half a thought. Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:49, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

I was referencing this sentence, "Following the 2010, he was selected by ". I think you meant "2010 season" or possibly "Following 2010", but the sentence makes sense without the phrase, so I simply removed it. Feel free to restore something if you feel it's needed. Walter Görlitz (talk) 00:05, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Fredy Montero[edit]

If you look the info box lists Montero as having played 14 games for Sporting CP, which is accurate. I merely changed the goals from 13 to 16 to reflect the fact that he has scored 16 goals in the 14 games used in the info box, not 13. This edit was based on the very information displayed in the statistics further down the page. I believe my edit was constructive and you should revert it back to what I wrote. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.94.156.207 (talk) 18:39, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

As to your assertion that the info box is only to contain stats from league games, very well. But the info box currently states that Montero has played in 14 games. Further down the page the statistics note that he has only played in 12 league games. If that statistic is accurate, than the number of games played in the info box should be changed from the 14 currently represented to the actual number of league games played, with that number being 12. This is where my confusion arose, if the number of games being represented in the info box was representing the total number of games, rather than simply the number of league games played, than I felt the number of goals should be amended to reflect total goals as opposed to strictly league goals. But since you've made it clear that the info box is for league stats only, the number of games played should clearly be amended. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.94.156.207 (talk) 00:10, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Re: Quick Question[edit]

Depends on what template you want me to do and what you want me to put in it. Just tell me and I will try and edit/fix :) Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 18:18, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

I see what you mean. I was planning on perhaps doing that in the future if I ever got to finish the Indian football ones but considering we are in the off-season I may start now. I will get back to you with then with what I get. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 19:38, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
Please tell me this is not acceptable! Template:Atlanta Silverbacks is just way to much for a template. Why is there even an honors section! I can tell I am going to have fun with this. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 19:45, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
Sorry if I am now becoming a bother on your talk page but is whoever did this serious... 4 links in the history section... all leading to the same bloody page. Comedy gold! --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 19:57, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Okay, the Atlanta Silverbacks one was just finished: Template:Atlanta Silverbacks. Just tell me what you think of it and after we finish that I can move on to the others. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 22:15, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Oops, probably should have mentioned that I flew to London just two days ago. Since this is my first break since like forever I was going to take this time to get back into Indian football (pages that were not updated or badly vandalized). If you look at my contributions you would see that is what I have done the last couple of days. Sorry, I should have told you this before hand but I forgot. I will see what I can do with the rest as I do want to do this, esspecially before the season begins. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 13:57, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
Okay, so, ya, it has been a very unproductive few weeks for me mainly because of personal reasons. Anyway, that stuff is over so I will get back to the templates now where I will try to get one team done per day (two on the weekends). I will also try doing USL Pro and perhaps some USP PDL is needed. Cheers and cant wait for MLS 2014!!!! --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 01:00, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Template:Carolina RailHawks has now been completed. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 17:58, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Hm, I thought I added that they won the NASL conference of that league... well then, I guess we can get rid of that. As for the color, I made it darker and it looked better IMO. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 19:53, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

MLS Player Categories[edit]

Hey, I notice that whenever I create an MLS player who add these other categories and what not... I am not saying it is bad, in fact, I am wondering which ones I should add when I am actually creating the article instead of just you having to do it all the time. I really do feel sorry that you have to basically go to every page I create and fix this so what can I do in the future to make sure you dont have to do the work for me. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 04:14, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Makes sense. I usually work with my own template and I try to get these pages done as quick as I can (without messing up) so I will try to incorporate these categories. Cheers mate. And tell me about it with the MLS players categories. I am dealing with that with my Indian football pages where there are players who have never played in the I-League who have the cat... of course these are new editors who add them, they shall learn with time haha. Thanks again mate. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 06:01, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Hassoun Camara[edit]

So if I disagree with you, I vandalize Wikipedia ?? Seriously ?

Montreal Impact is the same club, as a NASL and MLS club, we just "get promoted" in a way when Joey Saputo bought the MLS License.

When Del Piero played for Juventus when they went down in Serie B, he didn't play in the same club ?

That's soccer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Manultrafcn43 (talkcontribs) 13:39, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Gamemaster eleven[edit]

If I were to make an article about a rookie footballer, would I have to wait till the player makes his league debut to publish the article or can I publish the article say one week before the start of the season even if the player does not debut till 4 weeks into the season would it be OK or would the article be deleted?

Speedy deletion of Josh Ford (soccer)[edit]

Good evening Mikemor,

I wanted to respond to you edit summary when you nominated this article for deletion. Once speedy deletion has been declined, the article should not be renominated (at least not under the same guideline). This is called Admin shopping and is generally frowned upon. What I've found useful in cases like this is to appeal to the admin directly. Simply leave a message on their talk page explain why you think their decline was incorrect. In my experience, this works more often than not.

Indecently, I was in the process of doing this for this particular article while you were nominating it for deletion, so with any luck it will wind up being speedy deleted without the need for the afd. I hope that's helpful. Cheers. Sir Sputnik (talk) 04:14, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
