Hello!, and welcome to my talk page. Just leave me a message if you want. If I did something wrong, then just leave, I'll find out later. God Bless!--WillC 03:34, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Well thank you for stopping by, and I appreciate your encouragement. Regarding the PPV articles Extreme Rules (2012) and Money in the Bank (2011), I'd dare say all of the writing is done, there's not much left to add to the articles, and I hope that they can both reach FA. Review them if you wish to, thanks again! Starship.paint (talk) 08:14, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Oh well, that's just something I'd have to deal with then, thanks for the heads up. Starship.paint (talk) 08:48, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Hi again, I just realised in your WT:PW post regarding my nominated articles you said "Hit me up when you can and I'll help you out. I can see a couple of issues off the bat". Care explaining to me what those issues are if you have the time? Thanks very much. Starship.paint (talk) 05:13, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I kinda anticipated the in-depth thingy. I don't think there's any legit content to add left. But when you say "the placement of things are wrong", is that referring to the "too detailed" issue, or is it something else? Starship.paint (talk) 06:52, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
Firstly that's a huge chunk of text! I'm sorry I won't exactly refute / reply to the whole thing, I'll do that when you go into the actual review. I'll just address some parts of the post: 1) placement of results table - yeah shifting it will not be a problem. 2) Divas Title match as I recall is not notable and pretty much anything connected to it should be removed. - eh I object to this... but it depends on what you mean. Do you mean only info in the Event section should be removed, or even the Storylines / Aftermath sections as well? 3) Wrestleview - shouldn't pose too much of an issue even if it is removed. 4) Production / Background / Storylines - leaving for the review. 5) Play-by-play - leaving for the review. 6) fiction - if you only mean the Big Show injury, no problem, easy to add in the word "scripted", but question is, what if none of the sources actually say that it's scripted? Starship.paint (talk) 08:37, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
OK, I'll wait for your review. Thanks again! Starship.paint (talk) 08:56, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
WillC, massive thanks for going through the whole article. Unfortunately time is running out for me tonight and next week is huge (totally new stuff IRL) for me, so I might only get back to editing / discussing come next weekend. As you should be able to tell I'll be leaving the elephant (event section) in the room for now and doing the rest first. Starship.paint (talk) 11:25, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi WillC, I have made more edits to MITB '11, cutting down content from every match. Feel free to take a look when you have the time. Starship.paint (talk) 06:56, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
I thought I had already cut down to the high spots / ending of the matches. Fine, I will do yet another round of cutting... but I'd just like to say after this second round of cutting, I will be extremely reluctant to cut more. Starship.paint (talk) 03:37, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Cut again. The entire finish to the match starts with the GTS to the ribs, anything after that can't be removed. The single mentioned spot before the finish that is Punk surviving two AAs. Starship.paint (talk) 06:59, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi WillC, I've addressed almost all the points of the restart, either with corrections or a minority of arguments. You can take a look at the article again. Only things left is to expand Caldwell / Keller, and to possibly find a canoe.ca poll which you mentioned. Is there a particular section on the canoe.ca website which archives all their old polls? starship.paint (talk | cntrb) 09:18, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Also I'm in contact with someone who took live pictures... two or three might be added once he changes the licence. starship.paint (talk | cntrb) 09:20, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Made all the changes... and one reply (Kelly-Brie build) starship.paint (talk | contribs) 12:53, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks very much for your guidance and work on the article, WillC! Good luck on your articles as well. starship.paint (talk | contribs) 09:13, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi WillC, I thought that you would be better placed (than me) to update the new text on what the background subsection in the style guide would encompass. starship.paint (talk | ctrb) 02:22, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Eh... reminding you again on the previous post. =P starship.paint (talk | ctrb) 04:48, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
mm... reminding you yet again of the above. Anyway I want to ask you, have you watched / read the results of the latest Impact? It's absolutely hilarious. Half a spoiler: it's WrestleMania 30 all over again. starship.paint "YES!" 08:49, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi WillC, I hope you're doing well. Just to inform you, I've got another peer review of MITB 2011 open with more success this time. starship.paint ~ regal 11:51, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Thought you would want to know: Spike TV has not renewed a new deal with TNA. starship.paint ~ regal 10:38, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited No Surrender (2005), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Vincent Clark (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.

Welcome to the 2014 WikiCup![edit]

Hello Wrestlinglover, and welcome to the 2014 WikiCup! Your submission page can be found here. The competition will begin at midnight tonight (UTC). There have been a few small changes from last year; the rules can be read in full at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring, and the page also includes a summary of changes. One important rule to remember is that only content on which you have completed significant work, and nominated, in 2014 is eligible for points in the competition- the judges will be checking! As ever, this year's competition includes some younger editors. If you are a younger editor, you are certainly welcome, but we have written an advice page at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Advice for younger editors for you. Please do take a look. Any questions should be directed to one of the judges, or left on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup. Signups will close at the end of January, and the first round will end on 26 February; the 64 highest scorers at that time will make it to round 2. Good luck!

Wikicup addition of Bound for Glory (2005)[edit]

Hi there,

I've just taken a look at your addition of Bound for Glory (2005) for the 2014 Wikicup. I've determined that the significant proportion of the work was conducted during 2013 in userspace at User:Wrestlinglover/Bound for Glory (2005). Therefore the article is ineligible for claiming points during the 2014 cup. In order for points to be claimed, a significant volume of work must be conducted during the year of the cup itself. I'm sorry that your article is ineligible in this case, but I hope this doesn't put you off submitting more articles in the future.

On a unrelated note, I am also removing your nomination of the Good Article Review for Money in the Bank (2011). This is only because the review hasn't been completed with a pass/fail result yet. Once a result is known, please add this back to your submissions page as it will qualify for points. Miyagawa (talk) 13:09, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

As per the requirements on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring, a significant volume of work is required on an article in order for it to score points within the year of the cup. The GAR scoring scheme there also states that "You may claim points upon the completion of a review, that is, when the article is passed or failed." Miyagawa (talk) 13:25, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Turning Point 05 should be fine as the vast majority of the prose has been written since New Years. However Genesis 05 only appears to have been copyedited for the most part in 2014, which would mean that it doesn't qualify for GA/DYK points. Miyagawa (talk) 13:40, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
If you're adding further prose then it should be fine. Miyagawa (talk) 15:11, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

In Universe[edit]

Hi. I saw your edits about titles and IN UN. Can you explain me? I have a huge mess in my head. For example, I saw a lot of dusty finish, championship matches with a reverted decision, champions recognized only in a few promotions... I think that, if a title belongs to a promotion, the promotion has the entire control of the title history, because wrestling is fake. A champion won a title match, but the promotions must recognize him as champion. Doesn't?

Also, can you help me about TNA WHC Title? Magnus and AJ match was taped a long ago and we have sources about the unification, why you delete it? Also, it means Styles reign is 9 or 45 days? Also, Kurt Angle's first reign wasn't recognized in TNA Titles history (the website said Angle first reign was after he won the KOTM match). Thanks --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 15:54, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Oh, God. My head hurts. I don't understand it completely. For example, th NWA Title. It says Harly Race won the title 8 times. However, he was 7 times champion. So... is race 7 or 8 times champion? --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 21:51, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for the info. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 22:30, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Re:Review[edit]

Hi there- I've not removed any of your submissions, and the review remains on your submission page. If you're asking why I removed it from the log, don't worry about that- the judges just use that page to keep track of what's being submitted, and removing something just means it has been checked. J Milburn (talk) 20:47, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Don't worry about the log page- if we're going to remove any articles you have claimed, we'll edit your submission page and contact you on your talk page. The key thing to remember is that you need to have completed significant work on the article, and nominated it, this year. Other than that, as long as you're not trying to game the system, you should be fine. If you're worried about a particular submission, you're welcome to contact me in advance to ask about it. J Milburn (talk) 22:26, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
When did you write Genesis? Presumably, it's something you've been working on over the last few days? I only ask because you created Bound for Glory (2005) and Chris Candido Memorial Tag Team Tournament at around the same time, both clearly from drafts; while all the articles look good (I really can't judge them that well, because I've no idea what is expected for wrestling articles), I'm just wondering how many of these drafts you have squirreled away? J Milburn (talk) 23:03, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
That all sounds reasonable. There's actually been a "completed this year" rule since 2010's competition, though it's possible some articles slipped through the gaps- what we do see is people working their socks off for the first few days of the new year to ensure some early points. J Milburn (talk) 17:13, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Turning Point (2005 wrestling)[edit]

Hey Wrestlinglover. I just finished a copyedit of the above article.

  • There's a missing word at one point. "A barbed wire wrapped steal was introduced in the match..." Obviously there's some implement to be inserted after steal (which I fixed to "steel" throughout).
  • Though I tweaked it slightly, the following sentence is a bit confusing and awkward: "Bobby Heenan characterizing Pierzynski's actions to the referee as ignorance, while Johnny Damon..." (Maybe "ignorant" or "owing to ignorance")?
  • "Jarrett was busted open during the contest." I get a great image of a man exploding. Not sure what is actually intended though. (Lost badly? Seriously injured?)
  • "Sting appearing on the screens in the arena, thus being the major announcement advertised for the show." Why this is impactful need to be explained. It's certainly not clear to a non-fan like me.
  • In the paragraph quoting James Caldwell, there are a number of quotations. Each requires a separate inline citation per policy. In adding them, I assumed that they were all taken from the sole source listed at the end of the paragraph, but wanted to check that assumption with you.

Nice work on the article!--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 01:03, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 January newsletter[edit]

The 2014 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with, at time of writing, 138 participants. The is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2010. If you are yet to join the competition, don't worry- the judges have agreed to keep the signups open for a few more days. By a wide margin, our current leader is newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose set of 14 featured pictures, the first FPs of the competition, was worth 490 points. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:

Featured articles, featured lists, featured topics and featured portals are yet to play a part in the competition. The judges have removed a number of submissions which were deemed ineligible. Typically, we aim to see work on a project, followed by a nomination, followed by promotion, this year. We apologise for any disappointment caused by our strict enforcement this year; we're aiming to keep the competition as fair as possible.

Wikipedians interested in friendly competition may be interested to take part in The Core Contest; unlike the WikiCup, The Core Contest is not about audited content, but, like the WikiCup, it is about article improvement; specifically, The Core Contest is about contribution to some of Wikipedia's most important article. Of course, any work done for The Core Contest, if it leads to a DYK, GA or FA, can earn WikiCup points.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Wikipedia:WikiCup/History/2014/Submissions/Wrestlinglover[edit]

Hi Will- I'm afraid I've had to remove your two latest GA reviews, as they are yet to close. You can only claim points for a good article review once the review is completed. If you make it through to the next round, you can claim the points once the reviews have been completed. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my talk page. Thanks, J Milburn (talk) 19:23, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

The reviews aren't completed- they're still open. Concerning "I feel the closing part is a bit semantic since it is obvious that my part of the process is pretty much complete", this is similar to the way that a DYK can't be claimed until it hits the MP, even though it might be practically certain that it will hit the MP in the next few hours or days, or a GA isn't eligible for points until it's actually promoted. You're currently in 64th place; unless someone just below you has been away from WP for some reason and unable to claim their last article, you'll make it through. This GACs will give you some valuable early points. Thanks, J Milburn (talk) 22:38, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
I appreciate that it's out of your control- the same's true of anyone waiting for a review! That's the nature of the competition. We have a a list of content waiting for reviews, which may be what you're thinking of. Anything passed today or tomorrow (UTC) can count for the next round, but please don't update your submission page until the start of March (UTC). J Milburn (talk) 22:51, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 February newsletter[edit]

And so ends the most competitive first round we have ever seen, with 38 points required to qualify for round 2. Last year, 19 points secured a place; before that, 11 (2012) or 8 (2011) were enough. This is both a blessing and a curse. While it shows the vigourous good health of the competition, it also means that we have already lost many worthy competitors. Our top three scorers were:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer whose high-quality scans of rare banknotes represent an unusual, interesting and valuable contribution to Wikipedia. Most of Godot's points this round have come from a large set of pictures used in Treasury Note (1890–91).
  2. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions), a WikiCup veteran and a finalist last year, Adam is also a featured picture specialist, focusing on the restoration of historical images. This month's promotions have included a carefully restored set of artist William Russell Flint's work.
  3. United States WikiRedactor (submissions), another WikiCup newcomer. WikiRedactor has claimed points for good article reviews and good articles relating to pop music, many of which were awarded bonus points. Articles include Sky Ferreira, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus and "Wrecking Ball" (Miley Cyrus song).

Other competitors of note include:

After such a competitive first round, expect the second round to also be fiercely fought. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2, but please do not update your submission page until March (UTC). Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs!

I'm new to editing wrestling related articles, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! Hopefully if you and others that know the correct format (including myself now) tell those removing the disclaimer that is incorrect, it'll stop it or at least slow it down.Pawac (talk) 01:51, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Sorry Will, I'm crazy short on time for the forseeable future. I can't keep up to date with my watchlist let alone start a new project. NiciVampireHeart 12:45, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 March newsletter[edit]

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.

With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

WikiCup mistake[edit]

Hi there- this is just a quick note to apologise for a small but important mistake in the last WikiCup newsletter; it is not 64 users who will progress to the next round, but 32. J Milburn (talk) 18:37, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Victory Road 2004[edit]

I have no idea what your problem is but your continued removal of correct information for no acceptable reason is growing tiresome. I shall explain a few things to you to help you see this:

1. Your claim that me placing the correct times (the previous times where a complete mess and not in order with what wiki articles on elimantion matches should be) and the correct names is not acceptable due to original research. As stated in my edit summary No OR is not relevent here and that would've been obvious if you had actually read the No OR article istead of being fixated with removing any edits no matter how much they improve the page or how many mistakes they correct for some unkown reason.

2. Carrying on from the no OR thing. It is also clear you used the without the correct reasoning due to the fact that the existing references for the results are written by somebody who has done EXACTLY what I have done & watched the DVD years after the event took place. Therefore, acccording to your logic, all of the information with those references should be removed post haste.

3. Changing the names to the wrong names. I have no idea why you did this. Check contempory reviews of the event (of which there are many!) and they will prove to you that I am providing the correct information and replacing mistakes. Hell this would be obvious if you did 1 second of research/checking facts before removing my edits for incorrect reasoning and false grounds. You will see on Mihael Shane/Matt Bentley's wiki article that his name was not changed from Michael Shane to Matt Bentley until some time in 2005!

4. The last man standing eliminations. Firstly, it need not be stated that the wrestler didn't get up as it's already stated, TWICE, as being a last man standing match. Again, check the countless other examples all over wiki. Then, one man could not win this match alone as it was a tag-team match, see match listings and contempory results, Chris Harris could NOT have won this match, America's Most Wanted won the match. Your insistance on removing the fact that A: The chair shot was to an already injured knee, B: The leg drop was from the top rope and C: The Catatonic was onto a steel chair, just shows that you're not interested in what is best and correct being in the article, for some reason you just don't want anybody to edit the article which is pathetic. There is NO REASON what-so-ever for your continued removal of this correct information!

5. The fact you'd rather have an empty time slot than a correctly filled one that can be proven 100% correct by simply watching the match is also proof of the above. You're refusing to allow this article to be corrected, improved and accurate in favour of it being incomplete, unaccurate and lacking for no reason other than you don't want anybody else to touch this article, again pathetic.

Should you continue I shall be left with no choice but to take this further as you're refusing to let correct information be added that is proven true in favour of no information, information that is clearly inaccurate and not the full picture which all seriously detract from the article. There is no justification for your actions and your quoting of the No OR article is a desperate attempt at stopping anybody from improving on a wiki article, especially as the No OR article has no relevance here at all.

Pawac (talk) 09:37, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

  • You are wrong and if that was the case we wouldn't be able to reference books, not only can we reference them but it is one of the preset reference forms. All over wikipedia there are references to DVDs and their extra content. Also you have ignored ALL the other points mentioned and reverted back to false information regarding wrestler names and the moves used to score pinfalls in the last man standing. Please do contact an admin as it is clear you're in the wrong here for all the reasons mentioned above which you conveniently ignored, refused to discuss and just reverted again despite this making the article & the information within it INCORRECT!Pawac (talk) 06:46, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

GA review[edit]

Hey! I heard that you are one of the experienced editors in pro wrestling. Can I request if you could review Cody and Goldie to good article status? I worked very hard in this since it involves Goldust. I can also do something in return if you like. Cheers! FairyTailRocks 11:08, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

I see, well if you're interested just message me. It is very important to do your real life duties than Wikipedia. And I have already fixed some tweaks in the article like replacing primary sources into reliable ones. Good luck! FairyTailRocks 10:02, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 April newsletter[edit]

Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Round 2's highest scorer, with a large number of featured picture credits. In March/April, he restored star charts from Urania's Mirror, lithographs of various warships (such as SMS Gefion) and assorted other historical media. Second overall was Pool E's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose featured list Silver certificate (United States) contains dozens of scans of banknotes recently promoted to featured picture status. Third was Pool G's United States ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Washington, D.C. Caponer (submissions), who saw three lists (including the beautifully-illustrated list of plantations in West Virginia) through featured list candidacies. High-importance good articles promoted this round include narwhal from Canada Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Minas Gerais Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Nepal Czar (submissions) and Indiana Red Phoenix (submissions) for their work on the Sega Genesis topic. No points have been claimed so far for good topics or featured portals.

192 was our lowest qualifying score, again showing that this WikiCup is the most competitive ever. In previous years, 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) or 100 (2010) secured a place in Round 3. Pool H was the strongest performer, with all but one of its members advancing, while only the two highest scorers in Pools G and F advanced. At the end of June, 16 users will advance into the semi-finals. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

TNA[edit]

Hi. Are you sure about the TNA Tag Team titles? Some users discussed it months ago. TNA doesn't recognized Kaz and Eric reign. the title history doesn't recognized the reigns, it said "Styles and Tomko were stripped", not "Kaz and Young were stripped". Also, Kaz current profile says he is two time Tag team champion, not 3 times. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 00:13, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, you told me something time ago, but it's hard to know. So... Kaz and Eric won the match, right? Fact. Cornette vacated the titles. Fact. However, TNA doesn't recognized the title change in the title history and Kaz is recognized as Two times tag team champion. Can you explain to me like a baby? (really, maybe I understand it). Also, I have a problem. The NWA World Title (the title you want to ignore XD). You talk about re-write history, but the PJ said companies can change history (for example, I can't find a source about Syxx as WCW World tag Team champion, only a substitute. However, WWE included a list of wcw tag team champions with Syxx) An IP added a Hulk Hogan reign, asking for include it or delete all the no-official reigns. Notes say it was a dusty finish, but I don't know how to handle with it. Also, another IP included a reign by Ray Gonzalez. Can you help me with both issues? Thanks --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 00:48, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
About Gonzalez reign, source says: "Ray logró derrotar a Jeff aplicándole un guitarrazo en la cabeza para después entrar otro árbitro a reemplazar el árbitro original de dicha lucha y así Ray ganar ese título. Cuando el árbitro original de la lucha se reincorpora le arrebata el título a Ray y se lo entrega de nuevo a JJ, para así el reinado de Ray y la emoción de los fanáticos solo durar par de minutos..." (Ray deefated Jeff via guitar shot after a referee substituted the original referee, so Ray won the title. When the original TNA referee wake up, he stripped Ray from the title and give it to JJ and fans boo blahblahblah) Looks like a dusty finish and not unofficial/not recognized reigns, should be listed? --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 00:53, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
IP 74.142.43.122 stills including the Hogan reigns to the NWA World Heavyweight article. Can you talk to him and explain to him the diferences between a unofficial regin and a dusty finish? --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 23:57, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

wwe[edit]

Hi, will. User Dragon60black strikes again. He stills the wwe name its world wrestling entertainment. Consensus was the name changed in 2011, right?--HHH Pedrigree (talk) 19:49, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Ok, Thanks. I asked you because you look like the big brain of the project. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 13:59, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then.

Extreme Rising[edit]

Hi, God of Title reigns. I have an issue. Do you know Extreme Rising? It's a small promotion. The champion, Stevie Richards lostthe title at ECWA event against Luke Hawx. The match was promoted as Extreme Rising title match, but Extreme Rising didn't recognized the title change. However, Hawx has the belt and he says he is the champion. At MCW event, Hawx defended the title againt Matt Hardy (and Hawx lost). The promoter said the match was for the MCW title, but if Hardy and Hawx wanted to include more titles, t's OK. Now... are Hawx and Hardy Extreme Rising champions? Several sources, like PWInsider, included the title change in their reports, but Extreme Rising (the promotion looks defunct) says Richards is the champion (also, richards says he love cats) --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 16:41, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
