Wiki-favour[edit]

Hi there SS, AL "here",

a small favour if you can: can you, after removing the unreliable TRANSFERMARKT.com from articles, replace it with the reliable SOCCERWAY.com (especially if it's a ref located in the statistics chart some players have in their articles below)? I will also pitch in that action, before i leave for good on 13 July (eight years now as an editor, feeling tired).

Thank you very much in advance, ask if you need anything before that date --AL (talk) 00:07, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Transfermarkt[edit]

I see you have been mass removing references to Transfermarkt, presumably on a semi-automated basis judging by the rate of edits. I'm aware of the reliability concerns over Transfermarkt, but surely a poor reference is better than no reference? If the references are problematic, wouldn't it be better to replace them with something else instead, per WP:PROVEIT? Or if all else fails, to remove the material instead of leaving it there unreferenced. Oldelpaso (talk) 17:30, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

@Oldelpasso: I have every intention of replacing the sources eventually. I just find it easier to work systematically and remove all the transfermarkt references first, and then replace them. It's just going to take some time. That being said, I have to disagree with your assessment. I think it is preferable to have a few unsourced articles in the short to medium term, than to encourage the proliferation of an already very prevalent, unreliable source. Sir Sputnik (talk) 19:55, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Sir, why transfermarkt is an unreliable source?--SirEdimon (talk) 23:34, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

@SirEdimon:. It's the same reason Wikipedia itself is not reliable. Any registered user can submit changes to the database. Sir Sputnik (talk) 00:02, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I got it. It's a pity, because this site is a good source of information.--SirEdimon (talk) 23:25, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Regarding transfermarkt[edit]

Not a problem, thanks for the heads-up. Juve10 (talk) 17:25, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Nikita Koger[edit]

Feel free to delete Nikita Koger instantly, my own fault not checking if the Estonian league was notable. Sorry for wasting your time! William Tölöberg (talk) 23:09, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Fábio Prates[edit]

Hello,

Regarding the article about Fábio Prates, during the time I wrote it, the Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional de Honduras in which the player has played, was listed as a professional league under the Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Fully professional leagues and thus the player should not fail WP:GNG. I'm not sure why it has been removed from the list since.

Transfermarkt[edit]

I have noticed that in Giannis Loukinas' article you have removed two references from tranfermarkt. Is there any discussion that has concluded that transfermarkt is not a reliable source? I couldn't track one and I'd be really interested on reading it. Secondly, are you aware of any websites that keep data on international youth matches? I create many articles on football players and such info would be really helpful. Thanks in advance for your answer.Hansi667 (talk) 12:26, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

@Hansi667: It was discussed here, among other places. The bottom line is that too much of the data is user-generated for the site not to be considered a self-published source. As for youth caps, I know soccerway.com usually includes them, at the most recent ones. I hope that clears things up. Sir Sputnik (talk) 14:00, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Kylian Hazard[edit]

Hi there. Just a cursory note that I removed your deletion tag on the above page as it is not a valid deletion criterion - the page is not an identical repost as required under G4 - and the player is now notable as he's appeared in a professional game (in the Europa League) for a pro club in an all-pro league. — foxj 20:58, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Žan Benedičič[edit]

After your Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion tag on this article, I would like you to participate in the discussion at Talk:Žan Benedičič. I would like to see your explanation for such a proposal please. By the way, I reverted your edit (aka deletion tag) as there wasn't anything on the talk page about it as there should be. Kind regards IJA (talk) 22:20, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Sorry I was a little bit rude the other day, I was in a bad mood when I came online. I didn't mean to take it out on you. Please accept my apology. Regards. IJA (talk) 18:13, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Isnik Alimi[edit]

Hello Sir, the player has played a fully professional match in Coppa Italia.

Transferm*rkt[edit]

Hey Sir Sputnik. I know you don't like transfermarkt.de, but when I use the site under the title "external links" i don't use it as a source. I'll take Samuel Castillejo for example. I used Soccerway as source but added the link to transfermarkt just as an external link. I'm doing that in multiple articles now. Please don't remove the link to transfermarkt, as you did in Benno Schmitz for example. I don't use it as a source. Cheers Eden10Hazard (talk) 23:43, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
