Football box scores[edit]

So the unspaced endashes in the scores are being enforced in this article. OK, it's MoS, but the users who are enforcing it haven't done so in previous football articles they've contributed to and are not doing so by changing other articles that need changing. I don't want to make too much fuss about this especially since this is considered a dead issue. But that's part of the point, a dead issue which the discussion took place over a year ago and nothing has changed. Therefore, can we not keep the spaced endashes in the football box templates to continue to be inline with other football articles? And yes, I do prefer the spaced version.

WP:ENDASH is clear. There are no exceptions, since reapplying mistakes in other articles is not within WP:IAR. –HTD (ITN: Where no updates but is stickied happens.) 11:12, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
See the related discussion at Template talk:Football box#WP:ENDASH where every claim to use spaced endashes had been decisively debunked. –HTD (ITN: Where no updates but is stickied happens.) 11:13, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Why all of a sudden now though? You were there at the Suzuki Cup article yet no enforcement. Yes I've already read through that entire discussion before. But like I said, nothing has changed since that discussion from over a year. Most notably the 2010 World Cup page... it's spaced. Banana Fingers (talk) 11:20, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
I decided to try first here. There should be at least a million pages where footballbox is used, changing them will take a century. If you want, you can do that there (Suzuki Cup page), or I can bring this up at WT:MOS and I probably know how it'll turn out: spaced endashes are contrary to MOS.
There's nothing wrong in following MOS, and there are a plenty of wrongs committed in not following MOS w/ no good reason. –HTD (ITN: Where no updates but is stickied happens.) 11:27, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
I've already left a message at MoS regarding this a few days ago but no response. Maybe it's because of where I've put the message. lol Banana Fingers (talk) 11:29, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Try putting it on a separate section and place it at the bottom. –HTD (ITN: Where no updates but is stickied happens.) 11:32, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
See, told ya I knew how this would turn out. A million wrongs doesn't make a right. –HTD (ITN: Where no updates but is stickied happens.) 03:45, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
