Invitation to take part in a pilot study[edit]

I am a Wikipedian, who is studying the phenomenon on Wikipedia. I need your help to conduct my research on about understanding "Motivation of Wikipedia contributors." I would like to invite you to a short survey. Please give me your valuable time, which estimates only 5 minutes. cooldenny (talk) 21:39, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Just saying hello[edit]

Hey, just wanted to say hello - I noticed you've been working a lot on MLS articles since the start of the season. Welcome to the gang! Great to have another pair of US soccer eyes and ears keeping things up to date. Keep up the good work! JonBroxton (talk) 06:25, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Notts County players[edit]

The offical website first team players is not up to date, if you are going to edit using that info then please wait until season starts. The current list includes/excludes players that have been recently recruited or released as announced on the news section of web site. Regards --palmiped |  Talk  13:24, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Babajide Ogunbiyi[edit]

Thanks for your message on my talk page. I have looked back at the matter, carefully considering what you said, and answered at User talk:JamesBWatson #Babajide Ogunbiyi. JamesBWatson (talk) 09:49, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

New roster format[edit]

Thanks for your tireless work on the MLS rosters. I'm surprised that you haven't commented on the new roster format though, either pro, con, or neutral. I'd like to know your feelings on it since you see them the most. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 18:21, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Using a black background seems to hide the fact that the table is sortable. (related to recent D.C. United edit) --Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:49, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Good spot. May be worth changing to black on white instead. UncleTupelo1 (talk) 01:53, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Rob Vincent on Riverhounds Roster[edit]

I am wondering where you heard that Rob Vincent, presumably the College of Charleston player, has signed for the Riverhounds. I could not find any sources anywhere. I trust your work but am curious since the 'hounds are my local club and I haven't heard anything. gri3720 (talk)

April 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm GiantSnowman. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Rohan Reid, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. GiantSnowman 08:07, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

My fault for not including a source! deathgripz 16:03, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the source; in future please do not remove the playing position from the introduction, as you have been told about before. GiantSnowman 16:06, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

UEFA teams are generally in a transfer freeze[edit]

English, German, French, Italian and Spanish teams are not able to transfer players yet. Most of the regular football editors will revert these when they encounter them. I hope that I didn't offend you by reverting the Man U changes you made. Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:10, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, just to let you know that Jamie Mackie's transfer to Nottingham Forest has not been officially completed yet, so I reverted your changes. JMHamo (talk) 21:46, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Kevan George[edit]

I just undid your edit on Kevan George because well.... he hasn't capped for Trinidad and Tobago yet. National teams can only be added when a player has actually appeared in a match for their country. Just being called up. – Michael (talk) 19:37, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

August 2013[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to introduce inappropriate pages to Wikipedia, as you did at Michael Bustamante, you may be blocked from editing. If you need guidance on how to create appropriate pages, try using the Article Wizard. This article was virtually identical to one that had been deleted as a result of consensus at a deletion discussion. Attempting to overturn consensus by simply ignoring it and re-creating the article is unacceptable. I see that you have a long history of creating articles that have then been deleted as lacking notability, and that some of them you have recreated, in some cases more than once. By now you have sufficient experience to be well aware that Wikipedia has inclusion criteria which many of your articles do not meet, and you need to make sure that you follow Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:26, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Why on earth have deleted the Michael Bustamante article when he meets Wiki guidelines and the sources showed this? Creating this article isn't disruptive editing and threatening being blocked from editing is a bit far fetched. deathgripz 12:21, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

I have checked all of the changes between the version of the article deleted following the AfD discussion and the version which you created. Most of them were minor formatting changes and the like, and none of them did anything to add any new evidence of notability. You may well believe that the sources showed that "he meets Wiki guidelines", but the consensus at the discussion was unambiguously against that opinion. Wikipedia works by consensus, not by individual editors ignoring what others think and repeatedly posting their own preferred versions. Persistently ignoring consensus and repeatedly re-creating content which consensus says should be deleted is indeed disruptive editing. JamesBWatson (talk) 14:25, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

I WAS JUST TRYING TO BE HELPFUL. I guess he doesn't get a Wikipedia article then. You're going to have to be the one who breaks it to him though. deathgripz 14:28, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Well, since I wrote the message above, I have received a message from ArsenalFan700, suggesting that notability has changed since the AfD, so I have restored the article. However, the general point concerning being careful about creating articles still applies. JamesBWatson (talk) 15:00, 24 August 2013 (UTC

Mike Magee?[edit]

You edited that Magee won the Golden Boot with 22 goals, when in fact, he only has 21 (counting today's goal). Camilo is the Golden Boot winner with 22. Acmilan10italia (talk) 02:22, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Nottingham Forest[edit]

Hi mate, thanks for having found and corrected my mistakes! I hope that the Forest page and the current season page are OK ;) Ciao! Towerman86 (talk) 10:13, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

MLS player category[edit]

I removed Category:Major League Soccer players from Matt Wiet's page because that category is only for players who have appeared in at least one MLS match, which Wiet has not done. Signing for a club doesn't mean anything when it comes to league categories. This applies for the lower divisions of American soccer as well. – Michael (talk) 23:53, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

MLS roster changes / edit summaries[edit]

I notice that you redid an IP editor's removal of several players from the DC United roster. I had undone the edit because, after checking the usual sources (DC United's website, Washington Post soccer Insider), I found no evidence of these roster changes. I noted my concern in my edit summary. With your having restored the edit, and the IP editor having made similar changes to a dozen or so MLS websites (all without a hint of the reason), I finally figured out that this reflects the re-entry draft. You (and the IP editor) would have saved me a lot of fact-checking if one of you had just said something about why you were making the edit. Particularly after I had drawn attention to the issue. Please make use of edit summaries in the future. They really do make life easier for other editors. Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 00:24, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Edited Sacramento Republic FC page[edit]

Hey I noticed you've been working on the Sac Republic FC page. I decided to update the kit images the other day because the team had announced the design. I got the home and away kit body created and uploaded and the article now refererences those kits. I noticed that you had added socks with a horizontal red band. Did you find a full kit picture the club had released? I could only find the shirt design so I left the shorts and socks just maroon for home and white for away. Since the shorts and socks haven't been unveiled, I deleted that edit but if you've seen the full kick, by all means, ignore me and put that back up! By the way, if you're planning to edit the kit, it seems to me that the color "barn red (#7C0A02)" is a close match to the official home kit main color and "black bean (#3D0C02)" is a close match to the diagonal stripe on both home and away kits. Just so you know if you do future edits. If you think another color matches better, we can alter the kits also. Thanks! Splitfire1000 (talk) 00:03, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Richard Eckersley (footballer)[edit]

Hi mate, thanks for updating Richard Eckersley's article now that he has left Toronto FC. I can't find any sources about that fact myself, so would you mind updating the article's prose with an appropriate source? – PeeJay 01:21, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Verifiability[edit]

Please review Wikipedia's policy of verifiability. Your recent change to the Colorado Rapids page was not consonant with it. In fact, seeing others asking you to do the same, you seem to have a habit of ignoring it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Agassiz830 (talkcontribs) 22:25, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Djamel Abdoun[edit]

Hi. I noticed you added Djamel Abdoun to the list of Nottingham Forest International Footballers. I have removed this as Abdoun has not been capped for Algeria whilst at Nottingham Forest. To qualify for the page, the player must be capped at full international level whilst a full-time employee of NFFC. IW4U (talk) 22:25, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Change to Real Salt Lake Roster[edit]

Hi noticed that you undid a revision of the Real Salt Lake roster, to include birthdate and age, and date acquired. I had seen a similar format on another team page. Is that not an allowed format for MLS football club rosters or was there another reason the change was reverted? If there is a specific format rule I should be following, please let me know. Thanks.

Tips[edit]

Hi there UT, AL from Portugal "here",

please (as i see you have done this several times), per WP guidelines (mind you, not mine no way!): 1 - in the player position field in box, we write (for example) "Defensive midfielder" not "Defensive Midfielder", curtailing the usage of caps; 2 - the updates are (for example) "8 June 2014", not "8 June, 2014".

Attentively, ask if you have any doubts --AL (talk) 04:42, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Dimitry Imbongo[edit]

I saw you just flipped Imbongo's nationality to French. [1] Boston.com article seems to indicate he's Congolese. Then again, his article says "Congolese-born French footballer". Is there a procedure to handle something like this, where the player's nationality is in question but it's quite clear that he will never be capped for either team? Achowat (talk) 22:48, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, he was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, but was raised in France from a year or two old. There's a lot of examples of this, Antoine Hoppenot at Philadelphia Union is one. I think in these instances, you go with the country the player was raised in. I mean, my cousin was born in China. He's definitely not Chinese though. UncleTupelo1 (talk) 00:01, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Not to doubt you, but is there a ref for him growing up on the banks of the Seine? Achowat (talk) 23:42, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Andy Iro and Soccer's "F.C."s[edit]

Sir, I noticed that this is the second time you've changed Andy Iro's infobox teams Stevenage F.C. and Barnet F.C. to not include the "FC" portion. While I recognize that there is no hard-fast, set in stone rule, please review the general usage on Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Players. This template serves a guide to the creation and layout of soccer player articles, which the community should use as best practices. As you can see, the "FC" portion is included not only within the infobox listed there, but is used throughout the article itself. I am unaware of any superseding precedents that would overrule said style/layout, however I'd imagine if there was such a case the template would be edited as such. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks, — GauchoDude (talk) 14:48, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

LA Galaxy[edit]

  • Whilst Gerrard has indeed signed for LA Galaxy, he will not be their player until his Liverpool contract expires in the summer; as such, he shouldn't be included in the player roster for LA Galaxy at this point. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 22:21, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Discussion RE the US Soccer Leagues[edit]

I'm letting you know that there has been a discussion regarding the US Pyramid: Talk:United States soccer league system#ASL's place in the pyramid. I probably stepped in it by adding ASL without researching that league at all; however, the broader discussion of how to order the leagues that are not sanctioned by USSF is also being included. Would love to hear input from frequent editors of the lower division league and club pages. Thx --Trödel 20:02, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
