Hey - the main contributors of this article appear to have been single-purpose accounts and they are no longer around. NBC News just published an article about SOWTs and I think there is some good information for someone with a background in deployment to digest.--v/r - TP 22:57, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Fantastic find TP, I will find some time in my busy civilian schedule to update the SOWT article. I can probably/hopefully get around to it tomorrow night. Thanks again! —  dainomite   23:02, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Dainomite. I'm about as useless as a civilian when it comes to anything down range.--v/r - TP 23:04, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
No worries, I've got your back. —  dainomite   23:07, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Color graphics for Infobox college football player[edit]

Dainomite, here's a sneak peel at how the revamped infobox is going: Template:Infobox college football player/testcases#Joe Cool (typical example). What do you think of the colors, graphics, and layout and design? In particular, how do you like the "college varsity stripe graphics?" Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 16:51, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Statistical leaders[edit]

Hey, saw you make a lot of college football-related edits. Wanted to let you know that I've put up a Public Google Doc that lets you easily create statistical leaders pages with consistent formatting in you're interested in making any. Jhn31 (talk) 03:43, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

I actually saw your thread on r/cfb talking about this Face-tongue.svg. Nice! —  dainomite   22:13, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Source for Special Tactics[edit]

If you're looking for data on these groups and squadrons, Carney & Schemmer's 'No Room for Error' is busting with it. Lots of stuff, because Col John T. Carney USAF (Ret) (according to the book) practically was there from the beginning. ISBN 0-345-45335-2. Should be able to get a paperback copy off the Net easily - my copy is paperback...

Ah yes, I've been meaning to dust off the cover, buckle down, and read it. I do have that copy on my bookshelf, along with a few other books on Air Force SOF history that discuss it's roles in Vietnam, Cold War, etc. But, unfortunately I've been incredibly busy ever since I separated from the Air Force I haven't had enough time to read them. Ironically I got most of them right after I separated because I thought I would have more free time on my hands. Hah! How naive of me... —  dainomite   01:57, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Question about Wisconsin colors[edit]

Hey Dainomite. I'm the one that changed the colors for Wisconsin because their Athletics manual shows a different color (#BB1F41), and is definitely not the academic color (#B70101). However, the athletics website shows it the same as the academics color. Also, the University Brand Guidelines shows the athletics has a different color (the one I changed it to). I didn't make very many edits because I saw the athletics website showed the darker red; I reverted my edits. I don't know if I'm confused as to whether those guidelines are outdated or what, but the guidelines don't match this. Sorry for causing this problem. Corkythehornetfan 06:09, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Heyo Corky! Not a problem, no harm no foul. Especially since you were assuming good faith. Face-smile.svg The main rationale I have for #B70101 as the best choice is because it's the only thing that states specifically "Primary color palette for the web". Where as most everything else is referring to "print" colors. Even on the UW Athletics guidelines under "Wisc Red" it refers to print when it states "in lieu of which use *Pantone® 200 for spot color. Pantone® 200 PC for process color Process Equivalent -3C-100M-66Y-12K" It's easy to just use colorzilla or something to pluck a color from a page and paste it in somewhere but that is the main difference as I see it.

Alright, thanks! Corkythehornetfan 15:08, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
Not a problem, anytime! Face-smile.svg Cheers, —  dainomite   17:19, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

US national team crest[edit]

Hey, I noticed you undid the edit by that guy on the US national team page for their crest and also on other teams. If you are interested, there is a discussion on that going on at WT:Football which was started by me cause that guy did the same on the India national football team page. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 02:09, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

USC vs Southern California[edit]

Dainomite, per your edit on Clay Matthews III, the standard short name for the USC Trojans is "USC", while for the South Carolina Gamecocks, it is "South Carolina". The prose of the stubby lead found at List of USC Trojans in the NFL Draft is not representative. What is representative is the naming convention found generally at Category:USC Trojans, its daughter categories, and elsewhere. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College football would be a good place to discuss this if you think there is an issue. Thanks, Jweiss11 (talk) 20:21, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

@Jweiss11: Are you going to change the all the players listed on List of USC Trojans in the NFL Draft from Southern California to USC then? Here's the names on that list from 2015 to 2011, just 5 years. Marqise Lee, Marcus Martin, Devon Kennard, Robert Woods (wide receiver), T. J. McDonald, Matt Barkley, Khaled Holmes, Matt Kalil, Nick Perry (American football), Tyron Smith, Jurrell Casey, Jordan Cameron, Ronald Johnson (American football), Allen Bradford (American football), Stanley Havili, David Ausberry, Malcolm Smith (American football). Going back to 2011 only 2 had USC, all of these list Southern California. —  dainomite   03:37, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
They should all be changed. Jweiss11 (talk) 03:38, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
@Jweiss11: Well there's a whole list there, shouldn't take too long. —  dainomite   03:40, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
