I created this page in error


To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting European club rugby, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. --Android Mouse Bot 2 11:16, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

Hi, welcome to Transnistria, the greatest sockpuppetry playground in the whole of Wikipedia! Sorry, but can I ask whose sockpuppet you would be...? ;-)

Fut.Perf. 10:56, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Hmmmm, well,.... sorry for "biting the newcomers"; if you're in fact a genuine newcomer then I hope you'll accept my apologies. But still, I can't help feeling that you are not quite as new to this game as you want to make it appear. We're all a bit paranoid about sockpuppets over at that article, of course. We've just been seeing too many of them, you know. Fut.Perf. 11:25, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Jonny Bellis[edit]

There is already a page for Jonathan Bellis so I have added the information in yours and created a redirect. Racklever (talk) 18:52, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Appreciate the work you've done on the Stanford Super Series articles. As an american, it's hard to keep up on these things, (even if I am a bit of a cricket fan :D). SirFozzie (talk) 23:07, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

1986 FIFA World Cup Final[edit]

I don't understand why you had to make those edits to that article. Couldn't you have done those in your sandbox? – PeeJay 12:23, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

No worries, mate. I understand where you're coming from. I hope you don't mind but I've been through the article and given it a proper shakedown in terms of spelling, links, etc. Should be almost worthy of B-Class now. – PeeJay 13:04, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

"Hand of God" image[edit]

Just a quick note - since File:Hand of God goal.jpg‎ is a non-free image (especially since it's a wire service image, so it's a commercial product in and of itself), and should not be used in the infobox, or anywhere other than the discussion of the photograph (WP:NFCC#8 and all that). Otherwise, thanks for your work on the England v Argentina article. Cheers. --Mosmof (talk) 14:14, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Goal[edit]

Is it all covered in the match article? This seems to have more information. Enigmamsg 06:09, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Euro 2016 bids.PNG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Euro 2016 bids.PNG. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images.

If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Blocked account as compromised[edit]

I have blocked this account following a bout of vandalism from an account that previously made thousands of constructive edits. If I am mistaken in this assumption, please explain why this happened. –Juliancolton | Talk 22:22, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, those edits were drunk messing around at home but in bad taste; I apologise. --Pretty Green (talk) 09:03, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Unblocked[edit]

I have unblocked you per this AN discussion, but I hope that you have learned your lesson from all of this. Please don't vandalize Wikipedia again, on either your account or your IP. Thanks, NW (Talk) 15:49, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

UK election page move[edit]

As you have previously participated in discussions to move "Next United Kingdom general election" to "United Kingdom general election, 2009", I am writing to inform you that the discussion is once again taking place at Talk:Next United Kingdom general election#Page move, revisited. -Rrius (talk) 23:47, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

NewcastleGateshead[edit]

Inclusion of venues of training facilities seems to be placing an Anglocentric emphasis that is not found in the summary of the other bids: the cited article from the BBC makes no mention of Gateshead. Other bids have regional implications: the region, or made-up-compound-brand-name, is not the proposed venue. I would ask you to reconsider. Kevin McE (talk) 10:29, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks / Some more "enlightment"[edit]

Hi there GREEN, VASCO here,

Thanks very much for your input here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Football#POV_or_not_POV), sincerely. My writing style is indeed close to journalese, but not in a POVish way i hope, i am only trying to help. I know this is an encyclopedia, but i thought a little of "free writing" would be encouraged. I'm not a big fan of the "machine-like" writing i often found in articles stating: "In 2006, he signed with x team, scoring y goals. In 2007, he signed for z team, scoring k goals...so on, so on".

With the utmost respect for your work, i do have to say i don't understand why all the "citation needed" bits in the Alan Osório da Costa Silva article, when the POV is all but gone (saying he was a "key element" in V.Guimarães, when he played in 29 out of 30 games and the team finished third out of the second division requires citation? Clicking in both links show he shared team with R.Quaresma, an established Portuguese international - i removed CN tag in that one only - hope it's OK - after rephrasing it duly. Also, the games where he scored this or that goal in this or that game all appear in LINK#1 (zerozerofootball.com), i just don't see the point of "doubling" same source as link and ref). I am really at a loss, honestly. Attentively, have a great weekend, from Portugal - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 13:12, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

  • NEWSFLASH! Added two more refs (Portuguese site, but in English, good good goodie!), cheers - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 13:27, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Thanks for that tip on "doubling" REFS mate, already knew it though. Keep it up - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 14:34, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

sovereign states sorting criteria[edit]

Sorry to bother here, but as you are a contributor to certain discussions at the List of sovereign states I would like to show you the recently compiled list of all proposals for sorting criteria so that you can express your opinion here. Thanks! Alinor (talk) 13:29, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Formula One tables[edit]

Of course, there's no reason why this couldn't be applied for years since the drop-worst rule appeared and not previously. There is reason. If we add it in, then sooner or later someone will apply it to other years affected by dropped scores. Then we have an extended edit war. --Falcadore (talk) 14:58, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your recent edit to the article. While you may think it was innocuous and you were being WP:BOLD, there's a lengthy discussion about it on the article's talk page.
