Hi. Please see Talk:César Santín#Name. Thank you. kalaha 17:44, 24 July 2008 (UTC)


Okay, thanks.

The Emirates Stadium capacity is 60,355[edit]

Please stop changing the article to an incorrect figure - any further reversions of my edits and I'll be forced to block you. As for IPA, not only is it unnecessary for the English language Wikipedia, it is also incorrect - you have not provided the IPA for the word "Stadium". Qwghlm (talk) 13:54, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Just for the record: I have never changed the figure for the stadium's capacity, so your threats are absurd. Aikclaes (talk) 10:40, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Norwich City F.C.[edit]

I'm puzzled by this. Either you intended to put it in the Norwich article, or you've missed off more than half of the pronunciation. --Dweller (talk) 15:04, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Wrong info[edit]

Hi there CLAES, VASCO from Portugal here,

In Sebastián Eguren, you have made a mistake (we all do), saying that he moved to AIK permanently. Then, you wrote in storyline that he must return to VILLARREAL because he still has 12 months in his contract?! That is precisely why it is a LOAN, player must report to old club to decide his future.

I also improved article with a new reference, please do not remove the correct info, maybe we can all work together as a team. You told some user to look at the reference where the transfer to AIK is referred. Well, i know ZERO Swedish, so i don't know what the article says, but if it says it is a permanent transfer, it is WRONG, it's a loan.

Continue the good work, nice weekend,

VASCO - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 04:13, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Very strange indeed, but then, what can surprise you in the world of modern football? If he has to return to Villarreal, how on earth it's not a loan? Oh well...I have total faith in your explanations, so you can update the player's page (in the AIK transfer paragraph) as you wish, i won't revert it.

Sorry for any incovenience, cheers,

VASCO - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 18:57, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Nice work man. I only made some corrections to your last inputs.

1 - In an encyclopedia, we must write always in past tense, so i made some tense adjustments, without altering contents one bit.

2 - Eguren could be, i'll give you that, a CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - but i think he is a DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER with a good scoring rate. What he is not, 100% sure, is a DEEP-FORWARD, ATTACKING MIDFIELDER or SECOND STRIKER, no way, i corrected that.

3 - I think the club's name should be compressed in box only, not storyline. Therefore, please leave AIK FOTBOLL in story, AIK in box.

Feel free to give me your views on that, cheers,

VASCO - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 21:10, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Response to response :)

1 - 100 % clear. UPDATE: Ah, i see what you mean, it's just that i see WP as an encyclopedia, even though it is a "special one". At least i ALWAYS write in past tense, but i don't own the truth.

2 - No, i disagree. I think the player's main position should be the one appearing in INTRO. In storyline, perhaps we could write "In his spell at AIK, he was used mainly as a X or a Y". What i can tell you is that at Villarreal he was a defensive unit, even playing as central defender.

3 - Just for a matter of display, really. I think the club's fullname - the fullname at WP, not the full name of the organization - should appear in story, just once (intro and once in body of article that is), just for matter of display and informative purposes.

Cheers, take care,

VASCO, Portugal - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 22:40, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

  • I did not remove anything man, i merely composed it. That piece in intro has got to go in three months 1/2 - when he returns to Villarreal - that is why i though it should only be in storyline, not in intro. Sorry for any incovenience.

Have a fine week, VASCO - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 17:10, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

December 2010[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. I have noticed that some of your recent genre changes, such as the one you made to ...Baby One More Time (song), have conflicted with our neutral point of view and verifiability policies. While we invite all users to contribute constructively to Wikipedia, we urge all editors to provide reliable sources for edits made. When others disagree, we recommend you to seek consensus for certain edits. Thank you.  -- WikHead (talk) 19:42, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Please refrain from changing genres, as you did to ...Baby One More Time (song), without providing a source and without establishing a consensus on the article's talk page first. Genre changes to suit your own point of view are considered vandalism. Thank you.  -- WikHead (talk) 18:20, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to change genres without discussion or sources, as you did at ...Baby One More Time (song), you may be blocked from editing.  -- WikHead (talk) 18:50, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Genres[edit]

First off, I do not write the templates, so if you have a problem with their wording, you'll have to take that up with the users who do. Secondly, no derogatory terms are being used... both genres listed have sourced articles. You may also wish to read WP:GWARRIOR, for a clearer description of what you're doing.  -- WikHead (talk) 18:48, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

AIK Fotboll[edit]

Hi

Please do not add a wikilink for Alhassan Kamara. He is not notable since he fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTBALL, he has not yet made any appearances in a professional league or played for a senior national team, therefore a wikilink for him shouldn't be added. If you have any questions, just write to me at my talk page. Thanks. --Reckless182 (talk) 20:45, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi, he is quite notable due to being the focal point of a documentary film. Maybe if I include info about that on the page? Aikclaes (talk) 21:22, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
He is only notable if he meets either WP:GNG or WP:NFOOTBALL. I'm sure he will play for AIK when Allsvenskan starts, why not just wait until then? --Reckless182 (talk) 21:34, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Alhassan "Crespo" Kamara[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Alhassan "Crespo" Kamara has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:NFOOTBALL and WP:GNG, footballer with no professional apps

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Your filing at WP:3O[edit]

Hello Aikclaes. Unfortunately I have had to undo your filing at WP:3O as it failed to comply with the instructions, and it removed the instructions that other editors might need when they make their requests there. If you want to make a new request there, please read the instructions first, and please follow them. In particular: please include a link to the talk page section where the issue is being discussed; please don't argue the case on the WP:3O page; please only edit between the HTML comments, where it says, and don't overwrite the example in the instructions. Regards, --Stfg (talk) 12:46, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for pointing that out. I have made a new filing now and I hope it's correct. Otherwise please tell me what's wrong about it. Aikclaes (talk) 13:04, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi. No, it isn't. You've once again overwritten the instructions; once again you discussed the matter on the 3O page; and again you did not link to the talk page. However, now that it's being discussed by several more editors at WT:MOS, this issue is no longer a candidate for a third opinion. Sorry. --Stfg (talk) 13:16, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Henok Goitom - Compromise[edit]

Hi there CLAES, from Portugal (this is the same guy from the message titled "Wrong info", now without an account, I had a serious run-in with a troll and asked an admin to vanish my account because I had the intention of leaving forever, guess I cannot, I'm wiki-hooked),

Can we please reach some compromise here? Tons of articles have the CLUB CAREER starting with the place where the player was born, but OK, out of respect for your work we'll leave it like that. However, if possible, please "work with me" in two things: 1 - full name of club in intro, compression is for box; 2 - we could title the section "Early life" since it's in the beginning of article, rather that "Personal life", don't you agree?

Granted, "AIK Fotboll" is the club's official name, but this moniker is very rarely used in Swedish media. It's not like Liverpool, where the media sometimes writes "Liverpool FC". In Sweden, it's just "AIK". Aikclaes (talk) 12:23, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry for any inconvenience, continue the good work --84.90.219.128 (talk) 20:19, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Also, a small favour if you can: I have just improved Kennedy Bakircioglu's article significantly, with several references. But can you add a translation to the source #20? I can't make anything of it. Happy 2016, thank you in advance! --84.90.219.128 (talk) 15:53, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
I have added a reference, as you requested. Feel free to tidy it up, becuase am bad at this. Happy new year! Aikclaes (talk) 12:23, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your assistance, but there is still something missing in Bakircioglu's article. Could you please translate the title of the reference #20 ("Kennedy sköt upp Bajen till allsvenskan")? Have a pleasant 2016 as well! --84.90.219.128 (talk) 16:53, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Well, is it possible to translate Kennedy's reference #20 or not (I imagine that, being Swedish, it will only take you 30 seconds or so)? If I am bothering, at least direct me to another Swedish user so I can ask them please. --84.90.219.128 (talk) 03:48, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Done. Sorry about the delay. Aikclaes (talk) 06:13, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

No problems, sometimes I forget (most) users have a real life away from all of this... Thanks, all the best! --84.90.219.128 (talk) 00:15, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Small favour[edit]

Not for me, my fellow user, for our WP... Can you please arrange a reference (one will be enough, don't want do give you too much trouble) in Swedish for Andreas Ravelli's storyline (with reference to his main clubs and his 41 caps for Sweden)? An overzealous admin has removed the entire storyline twice, and I don't think there will be anything available for this guy in English, other than the fact he is Thomas' brother (already sourced).

If you can't or won't do it, don't worry I understand. Thank you for listening and happy weekend --Be Quiet AL (talk) 20:50, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

  • I tried to start it myself, but my level of Swedish is close to ZERO, and most of the refs (even though I type "Andreas (not Thomas, ANDREAS!) Ravelli" in the search engine (Swedish Yahoo)) speak more of his brother than himself... --Be Quiet AL (talk) 18:19, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Well? Nothing can be done man? The storyline will soon be removed, I know that administrator... --Be Quiet AL (talk) 22:56, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, not interested. Aikclaes (talk) 11:54, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

It varies, sometimes they call him Adrien, sometimes Silva. What he has on his shirt is irrelevant I think, I remember when Guti (footballer) played and he had GUTI HAZ on his shirt to honour his children; Portuguese sport broadcasters have this horrible custom of addressing 99,9999999999999999% of the footballers by two names (and sometimes THREE, Nuno André Coelho) 99,9999999999999999% of the time, you can trust me on this.

Also, I apologize for my summary that seemed to irritate you, but it was never my intention to do so even though I admit it was a bit exaggerated. What I meant by "I am Portuguese OK?" was that because of my nationality I have/had knowledge of this, not meaning I am a better editor than you or anyone because of that. --Be Quiet AL (talk) 20:37, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Your argument didn't irritate me. I just quoted you verbatim. It's up to other readers to decide if your argument about being Portuguese is valid. Aikclaes (talk) 05:54, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

OK, I am glad you are not upset. Regarding this whole issue, I have now started a discussion at WP:FOOTY, please leave your opinion there if you want, it would be appreciated. --Be Quiet AL (talk) 20:14, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

  • You declined to participate in the discussion (maybe you were not aware of it even though I mentioned in the line above I was starting one, not accusing you of anything, just pointing it out, mistakes happen), as pretty much everyone. No worries fellow user, article stays how you want. I will keep my opinion on how the player should be addressed to myself.

Happy editing --Be Quiet AL (talk) 19:17, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

Couldn't find the discussion.

It has already been moved to the archives (please read here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Football/Archive_104#Naming_customs_with_a_Portuguese_approach). --Be Quiet AL (talk) 01:45, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Tottenham Hotspur F.C. shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Your recent edits[edit]

Hello,

I see you've made multiple adjustments on the maps of 2017–18 Bundesliga and 2017–18 Serie A. May I encourage you to use the preview function to visualize your changes before saving them? This way you can make several changes in one edit, which is more efficient and helps us other users have a clear understanding of what changes were made, instead of having to go through 11 successive edits. Thank you. Bob von Schlumpfenberg (talk) 18:40, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

@Bob von Schlumpfenberg: There is a reason for this. Because I want the maps to look good in both mobile and desktop view, I edit and save in desktop view and then review the saved edit in mobile view. Aikclaes (talk) 06:39, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

IPA for Brighton and Hove[edit]

Hello. Personally, I think the IPA should cover Hove as well. Presumably the IPA is there primarily to help the reader unfamiliar with BritEng pronunciation, and Hove could just as likely rhyme with Love or Prove as with Stove. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 10:24, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

Struway2 Thanks for your comment. I totally agree, especially since "Hove" can be tricky to pronounce, as you mentioned. My issue was just that it would be more elegant to have IPA for the full club name. Now the IPA just covers part of the name. Or break out "Brighton & Hove" and have IPA for just that, but since the club rarely is referred to that way, as you pointed out, that's wouldn't be good either. So better leave it till someone smarter than me comes up with a solution. :) Aikclaes (talk) 10:35, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Your recent editing history at Star Wars shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Speedy deletion nomination of Bolon (eyewear brand)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Bolon (eyewear brand), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, group, product, service, person, or point of view and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Hitro talk 12:08, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hi, thanks for message. You said I created a page about a brand of sunglasses, Bolon, because it's a large brand and it has no Wikipedia page. That is not a criterion for having a Wikipedia page, a company must meet our sourcing and notability requirements.

Please read the following regarding writing an article

  • you must provide independent verifiable sources to enable us to verify the facts and show that it meets the notability guidelines. Sources that are not acceptable include those linked to the comapany, press releases, YouTube, IMDB, social media and other sites that can be self-edited, blogs, websites of unknown or non-reliable provenance, and sites that are just reporting what the organisation claims or interviewing its management. Note that references should be in-line so we can tell what fact each is supporting, and should not be bare urls which are subject to link rot. Most of your references were not independent third-party sources, but were posted by the company, quoted company spokespeople or were reviewing their products.
  • The notability guidelines for organisations and companies have been updated. The primary criteria has five components that must be evaluated separately and independently to determine if it is met:
  1. significant coverage in
  2. independent,
  3. multiple,
  4. reliable,
  5. secondary sources.
Note that an individual source must meet all four criteria to be counted towards notability. Without proper sources, however big this company is, your article can't show notability.
  • you must write in a non-promotional tone. Articles must be neutral and encyclopaedic. You said are positioned in the mid-range, or "affordable luxury", segment, sourced to a company that's going to sell them and clearly promotional. You then went on to even more blatantly give us the suggested price, unusual to say the least in supposedly neutral encyclopaedia articles
  • there shouldn't be any url links in the article, only in the "References" or "External links" sections.
  • positioned in the mid-range, or "affordable luxury", segment (with a retail price of around US$ 120) is taken verbatim from here You must not copy text from elsewhere. Copyrighted text is not allowed in Wikipedia, as outlined in this policy. That applies even to pages created by you or your organisation, unless they state clearly and explicitly that the text is public domain. We require that text posted here can be used, modified and distributed for any purpose, including commercial; text is considered to be copyright unless explicitly stated otherwise. There are ways to donate copyrighted text to Wikipedia, as described here; please note that simply asserting on the talk page that you are the owner of the copyright, or you have permission to use the text, isn't sufficient.
  • Looking at your recent editing pattern, I need to say that if you have a conflict of interest, you must declare it. If you work directly or indirectly for an organisation, or otherwise are acting on its behalf, you are very strongly discouraged from attempting to write an article at all. If you are paid directly or indirectly by the organisation you are writing about, you are required by the Wikimedia Terms of Use to disclose your employer, client and affiliation. You can post such a mandatory disclosure to your user page at User:Aikclaes. The template {{Paid}} can be used for this purpose – e.g. in the form: {{paid|user=Aikclaes|employer=InsertName|client=InsertName}}. If you are being compensated, please provide the required disclosure. Note that editing with a COI is discouraged, but permitted as long as it is declared. Concealing a COI can lead to a block. Please do not edit further until you respond to this message.

Before attempting to write an article again, please make sure that the topic meets the notability criteria linked above, and check that you can find independent third party sources. Also read Your first article. You must also reply to the COI request above

Jimfbleak - talk to me? 14:54, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Jimfbleak, thanks for your reply. I have nothing to do with the company (or AIK). I thought I could write a decent start for the article, and then other users could improve it to meet all the standards. I didn't know everything had to be perfect straight away. Aikclaes (talk) 11:37, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for that clarification. It's not a matter of "perfect", it's a matter of meeting our requirements. If you post an article in article space, you are indicating that you think it is ready for publication, and it will be assessed on that basis. If you don't want that to happen, then write it as a draft initially. Drafts have a degree of protection because they can't be deleted on notability or referencing issues alone, but they can still be deleted for other problems such as copyright violations and advertising. For obvious reasons, article about companies or products are particularly likely to attract scrutiny Jimfbleak - talk to me? 13:12, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for your help Jimfbleak.

Ambox warning pn.svg Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did on Dimitar Berbatov. This violates Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Mattythewhite (talk) 19:14, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

FC Seoul article[edit]

Thanks for polishing article. Where are you from? In current English trend, Hyphen is not used a lot. Mobile phone more used than Mobile-phone.Footwiks (talk) 14:20, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Footwiks. True, "mobile phone" is correct and "mobile-phone" is incorrect. But in this case we're talking about a compound modifier, so it should be written "mobile-phone company". You can read about this on the wiki page for compound modifier. (I grew up in England and have a degree in English linguistics.) Aikclaes (talk) 02:04, 16 March 2019 (UTC)
I saw now you have changed back my corrections. After you have read up on compound modifiers, maybe you can correct the article? I was planning on continuing to polish the article, but if I have discuss basic stuff like this I can't be bothered. Aikclaes (talk) 02:14, 16 March 2019 (UTC)
