Le Tallec[edit]

Just out of interest what makes you think that Le Tallec is a midfielder? When he played for Sunderland or France U21s he played upfront as far as I'm aware. The only reason he's not really played as a striker for Liverpool is more because of competition than his natural position. He's a Bergkamp-type player in my eyes. Bergkamp isn't a midfielder. aLii 00:07, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

I think he's more withdrawn than Bergkamp, a bit like Jari Litmanen who is also often considered a midfielder. I think it's debatable whether he's a midfielder or a forward - and I guess I am going on his appearances for Liverpool - but I think the term 'striker' is a misnomer, he's far from an out-and-out striker. I think in CM terms he'd be a AM/F C. 10:54, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

LFC Squad[edit]

Heh, sorry about the edit conflict just now that resulted in my overwriting some of your edit; I noticed that you had to restore Medjani to the squad list, so just wanted to let you know that it wasn't an attempt to revert your edit, but rather a simple oversight! Seb Patrick 15:00, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Sure, I thought as much. He hasn't been the most memorable player... ArtVandelay13 15:01, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Taller banner[edit]

I noticed that you changed the banner to the bordered one with the edit summary (taller banner as standard). I never realised that the banner was actually taller - this is a fault with Internet Explorer that can be fixed by removing the text cellpadding="0" from the second line. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I think the smaller banner (as intended) looks much better, and if there's no objection, it should be the standard version.  SLUMGUM  yap  stalk   14:03, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't realise it was a mistake. To be honest, I prefer the taller banner, it stands out more. I guess we'll see what people think. ArtVandelay13 15:25, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

NFFC squad[edit]

I saw your tag on Gary Holt.

I'd like to create the same feature for Norwich City players. How do I do it?!?!?! --Dweller 11:11, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi, follow Template_talk:Football squad2 start for instructions. ArtVandelay13 17:50, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Liverpool F.C. Reserves[edit]

The article on Liverpool F.C. Reserves has recently been nominated for deletion. I note that you have in the past contributed to the article, and was wondering whether you might participate in the debate over whether to keep it. I personally think that it is a useful place to keep information about the Reserve team which is notable in its own right, but may not be notable enough to include in the main Liverpool F.C. article without bloating it too much. I hope you'll find your way to supporting its continued existance. Cheers. Robotforaday 12:12, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Seasons[edit]

Fair enough, I see your point about table width. If I were you and I wanted to reduce width I would abbreviate the entries in the "Division" column (like Arsenal F.C. seasons) and drop the Charity Shield column entirely, as it is not as important a competition as the rest. Qwghlm 23:04, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Also, you could also put a forced break between the words "Average" and "attendance" in the column header, to make that column narrower. Qwghlm 23:06, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Torsten Gütschow[edit]

Thank you for contributing this article! If you write more new articles about German footballers, please announce them at Portal:Germany/New article announcements. Happy editing, Kusma (討論) 13:38, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

You might also be interested in WikiProject Germany. Best wishes, Kusma (討論) 07:00, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Tube Line Template[edit]

I think it is a great idea but it will be quite big for some lines (eg: central) so a reduce in font size might be helpful but otherwise - go for it. Unisouth 08:41, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

AfD Nomination: Dino Maamria[edit]

An editor has nominated the article Dino Maamria for deletion, under the Articles for deletion process. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the nomination (also see What Wikipedia is not and Deletion policy). Your opinions on why the topic of the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome: participate in the discussion by editing Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Noureddine Maamria. Add four tildes like this ~~~~ to sign your comments. You can also edit the article Dino Maamria during the discussion, but do not remove the "Articles for Deletion" template (the box at the top of the article), this will not end the deletion debate. Jayden54Bot 13:03, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Stephan Fürstner[edit]

  • If you don't need a full name, why is it there to begin with?
  • Why add his career details for FC Bayern II? I don't think stats from the reserve side meets the notable criteria.
  • If fussballdaten.de does the job a lot better why not use it as a source then for the stats?
  • We both know that the youth system for Bayern contains more then just a reserve side. Kingjeff 17:29, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Bayern Munich has children as young as 8 or 9 in their youth system. You might want to look at Bayern Munich Junior Team. Why remove fussballdaten.de? It was under external links. Not under references.They play in the Regional Third Division, which is a high level of senior football. Well, this is still not a career for Bayern Reserves. We both know that every member of the reserves wants to play for the 1st team. For players with a middle name. Are you saying he doesn't have a middle name? Kingjeff 18:04, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Notability (people)#Regarding notability of Football (soccer) players[edit]

Hi, seeing you are interested in football I invite you to contribute to this discussion to clarify certain issues about football player notability. I think clearer guidelines are needed to avoid repeated inappropriate nominations for deletion and time consuming discussions. Cheers! StephP 17:22, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Márcio dos Santos Gaia[edit]

An editor has nominated Márcio dos Santos Gaia, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not"). Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Márcio dos Santos Gaia and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. --Ng.j 20:37, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Duplicates[edit]

Can you substitute on your subpages all svg-images for railwaydiagrams, which are duplicates, with the other one ? That will be nice. You can find them here. The filenames start with "BSicon" and contain the substring "STB" somewhere behind. Thank you. 84.150.215.245 11:46, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Sortname[edit]

I noticed you mentioning {{Sortname}} in discussion of List of Premier League players. I'd never heard of it before, and have now implemented it in List of England national football team captains. Thanks.  Sʟυмgυм • т  c  20:35, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

LFC[edit]

Hey, I suddenly realised that you took care of some comments in the Liverpool F.C. peer review. In general I think this is ready for WP:FA nomination. If you like, I'll do it, or you could, in either case I believe this article is very close to getting there. Let me know what you'd like to do (or not do!) and I'll respond accordingly! Best regards, The Rambling Man 22:14, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Admin[edit]

Art, I have been impressed with your policing of LFC and overall contributions to Wikipedia and would like to nominate you for admin. Barfbagger 20:34, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair enough if you don't want to. Could you click on the link to your name in the above box and then decline where it says Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here:. Barfbagger 04:40, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Paul Jones (footballer born 1986)[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Paul Jones (footballer born 1986), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Paul Jones (footballer born 1986) fits the criteria for speedy deletion for the following reason:

Non-notable footballer


To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Paul Jones (footballer born 1986), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. --Android Mouse Bot 2 16:42, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Liverpool v. Arsenal "rivalry"[edit]

I agree with your reversion on {{Liverpool F.C.}} and have done the same myself on {{Arsenal F.C.}} - though the two clubs have often fought for the same trophies there is little rivalry in the sense of Arsenal's against Tottenham or Chelsea, or Liverpool's against Everton or Man United. The whole Liverpool and Arsenal Football Rivalry is a pile of uncited POV and the comment on Talk:Liverpool and Arsenal Football Rivalry suggests the article creator is oblivious to WP:OWN, so I would suggest nominating for deletion. Your thoughts on the matter would be welcome. Qwghlm 20:07, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Hans Juergen Doerner[edit]

Thanks for suggesting this redirect be deleted. However, if you could make this mistake, it's likely others could too, and a redirect hardly costs anything in terms of server resources, so I've decided against deleting it. Thanks again! Johnleemk | Talk 14:57, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Created as a typo


To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting 2006 European Super Cup Finall, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD.

Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 18:51, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

If you could make this typo, so could someone else; redirects are normally quite harmless, so it's best to leave them be. :) Johnleemk | Talk 19:36, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Re: Player categorisation[edit]

The issue isn't whether he's a professional or not, though. The issue is whether he should be included in a category that explicitly states that it is for "footballers who have played for Manchester United", when he has not yet played for them. As Hargreaves has never played a game for United, but undoubtedly will in the near future, I have commented out the category until such time. - PeeJay 22:04, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I am paying attention, but if you would just look at the category and read the writing at the top, you will see that, as I said, it is for "footballers who have played for Manchester United". To use your example, if Ben Collett never played a game for United, which I don't think he did, then he should be removed from the category. - PeeJay 22:13, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
Ok, let's hark back to the discussion they had at WP:FOOTY. Take Dietmar Hamann for example. He was at Bolton for less than a day before changing his mind and deciding that he wanted to join Manchester City. Should he be categorised as a Bolton player? (Yes, I know he's in the Bolton Wanderers F.C. players category, but let's be hypothetical here) Personally, I don't think Hamann should be categorised as a Bolton player, a) because he never played a game for them; and b) because he was only there for a day and, effectively, never wanted to be there in the first place.
Another example is the Premier League players category. There, they are much more specific about their qualification criteria. They say that, for a player to be included, they must have "appeared in at least one first-team league game in the English Premier League, which commenced play in 1992". So while the category may say "Premier League players", not every player who was contracted to a Premier League club is included. - PeeJay 22:30, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
Well look, I see your point. I do disagree with you, but since I don't doubt that Hargreaves will make his United debut on Wednesday, I won't argue if you uncomment the category now. - PeeJay 22:40, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Criticism of pokémon[edit]

A tag has been placed on Criticism of pokémon, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to a nonexistent page. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Schutz 20:20, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:University of Exeter new logo.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:University of Exeter new logo.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

The Steve Staunton article received heavy editing today by unregistered users, which I noticed at WikiRage.com. The article may benefit from a good review.

He's only on loan until January so it's hardly worth the debate, but are you sure he wears Guylain on his shirt? I can't say I've been looking but did think it was Ndumbu-Nsungu. Although it does bring up a possible question. Would you put down their surname or their shirt name? E.g. Stelios at Bolton. Peanut4

Hi, I see you have moved this article from Ludovic Quiston (footballer) to Ludovic Quiston, but I do worry, because although it is clear that he is an international football and the information is there, I have often made the Ludovic Quiston page and some clever dickhead has just deleted it off, so this time I deceded to try making the article as Ludovic Quiston (footballer), do you think they will delete it off again?

Should all be ok now. By the way I really like User:ArtVandelay13/LFCEurope, why don't we move it to the main namespace? Clearly it needs more work as it is only some of the years, but it looks like a nice article. John Hayestalk 12:07, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

York players FLC[edit]

Thanks for your comments on the York City players FLC, which I have now dealt with. But, I was just wondering about your thinking behind loans and permament spells. If Jones' loan was, for example, made from 1996-1997, instead of 1997-1998, merging loan and permament years wouldn't work. This would be counted as two spells, wouldn't it?

Featured List of the Day Experiment[edit]

There have been a series of proposals to initiate a Featured List of the Day on the main page. Numerous proposals have been put forth. After the third one failed, I audited all WP:FL's in order to begin an experiment in my own user space that will hopefully get it going. Today, it commences at WP:LOTD. Afterwards I created my experimental page, a new proposal was set forth to do a featured list that is strikingly similar to my own which is to do a user page experimental featured list, but no format has been confirmed and mechanism set in place. I continue to be willing to do the experiment myself and with this posting it commences. Please submit any list that you would like to have considered for list of the day in the month of January 2008 by the end of this month to WP:LOTD and its subpages. You may submit multiple lists for consideration. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TonyTheTiger (talkcontribs) 18:57, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Unattached footballers[edit]

Hello. I'm sorry I didn't notify you about nominating the category for deletion, and for that I apologise.

AfD nomination of Stephen Darby[edit]

I have nominated Stephen Darby, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stephen Darby. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. John Hayestalk 02:14, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Just to add to the automated message, I don't really want to do this, but these are the rules currently, hopefully we can resurrect these articles soon. John Hayestalk 02:26, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
I hope you didn't leave the taskforce because of these deletions? John Hayestalk 23:04, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
Well I'm sorry if that tipped that balance, you will be a loss to the taskforce and the project as a whole. I have to agree that the new rules are pretty stupid, but unfortunately that is what I have to work with, and I didn't want to appear biased towards LFC articles, especially as I had been accused of marking non notable Liverpool articles as supported by the project. I intend to resurrect them as soon as they meet whatever the rules will be. :( John Hayestalk 23:13, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
Well thanks for all your work, if there is still anything in your userspace which might be useful to the taskforce let me know. John Hayestalk 23:31, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Thomas Kraft[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Thomas Kraft requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Teslim Fatusi[edit]

In the Teslim Fatusi article, his stats include a 2001 stint at 1. FC Magdeburg. May I ask where you got that from? I can't for the life of me remember this player as having played for my club... Madcynic (talk) 14:59, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Thing is, at the end of 2000/01 season 1. FC Magdeburg almost went bust, was relegated and so on, I have my doubts as to whether they would even have tried to sign a guy like him, you know? Madcynic (talk) 16:26, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Crud, you're right, of course it was the following season. I'll take him out nevertheless. Don't have a subscription there either...African players are very hard to keep track of, unfortunately. Madcynic (talk) 18:31, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Mura[edit]

Hi! He is Éric Mura, a defender. I've created an article about him and add a link at 1991 European Cup Final. I'm pleased you can find the squad lists for this final. Keep up the good work!--Latouffedisco (talk) 09:56, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

You're welcome, but it was easier than finding these squad lists. Thanks.--Latouffedisco (talk) 10:36, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
He is midfielder Régis Castant. He had an amazing career, beginning as a professional with Bordeaux, and then joined amateur team from nearby FC Libourne-Saint-Seurin a team that reached Ligue 2 in 2006 after years and years in lower leagues. He is still playing for the team, by the way. I will create an article about him soon, but some datas are hard to find on the web: I need to use some old magazines I have! By the way, if you can find the 1976 European Cup Final squads, it would be very interesting, as this match has a special significance for French football fans, like me! Best regards.--Latouffedisco (talk) 13:03, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
I hope so, would be great! What you have found so far is already excellent. Keep up the good work!--Latouffedisco (talk) 13:23, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Arsenal FC squad[edit]

Hi there - you recently contributed to this thread at WT:WPF. Could you possibly spare the time to contribute the same thoughts to Talk:Arsenal F.C.? I'm having to deal with one particularly zealous user there who is calling me a vandal (while themselves deleting the discussion) and more reasoned and measured contributions to the discussion would be very much welcome. Thanks. Qwghlm (talk) 22:26, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Cheers. Consensus on WT:WPF is very much in support of UEFA and there are only a couple of dissenters on the page but they're driving me mad, particularly as it means some younger players aren't getting recognition they deserve. Alas WP:3RR means I can't revert them again today. Qwghlm (talk) 08:45, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
*sigh* Not going to intervene on that one. Not totally happy with the resulting compromise on Talk:Arsenal F.C. (only players who have been in first-team squads) but to argue any further would have been ridiculous, so it was worth it just to let the topic rest. Qwghlm (talk) 12:49, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Not to worry - when the Carling Cup gets going in a couple of weeks I imagine a lot of this will be moot - especially as some of the more established reserve players like Barazite, Nordtveit and Lansbury are or will be out on loan, there'll be quite a few new faces I imagine. The list will end up being pretty similar to the UEFA list, I'll bet. Qwghlm (talk) 13:27, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

PFA Premier and Football League Players Records (1946-2005)[edit]

Hey man, I noticed that you are listed as having a copy of "PFA Premier and Football League Players Records (1946-2005)". I'm trying to get hold of a copy for myself, but the only ones I can find are over £30! Would you say it's worth the money? – PeeJay 16:39, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Any chance you have the 1888-1939 version by Michael Joyce too? I'm considering getting both, just to fill out the football reference section of my bookshelf, but £60 is a lot to spend on two books. – PeeJay 21:38, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough. Cheers for the tip on the 1946-2005 edition anyway. Now to save up some cash! – PeeJay 22:25, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Matt Busby[edit]

Hi there. As you seem to be a Liverpool fan, I wonder if you might be able to help me find some biographical data about your former right-half, Matt Busby. His article is WP:MUFC's collaboration of the month, so I'll be trying to expand it to FA status over the next few weeks. However, since most of my sources are about Man Utd, most of the info about the man himself focuses on his time as United manager. Any info you can provide would be most helpful. – PeeJay 22:32, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Like I say, there's not much in my Man Utd books about Busby's time at Man City or Liverpool, other than numbers of appearances and goals. Whatever you can give me will be great. – PeeJay 08:43, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

German Football Champions[edit]

Hi I noticed you have changed a number of edits I made on the list, especially the lead. Personally I feel my version was better as it was probably reference and explained the topic better for people who do not understans the german league, please feel free to discuss this. I think you should nkow I intend to nominate this at FLC later, so I hope we can come to an agreement. NapHit (talk) 20:00, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Hmm I disagree, information about the structure of the league ad how it works is necessary, It doesn't really matter what place the war is mentioned it s fine where it is. The split with East Germany doesn't need to be in great detail either. I felt your lead was not particularly great and would require a lot of copy editing at FL, also my lead is properly referenced as opposed to yours, anyway I'm going to nominate the list now, your help with the nomination would be appreciated. I also changed some back that you changed Hamburger SV are known as Hamburg here and 1. FC Nuremberg are known as Nurnberg but I'll settle for FC Nuremberg. NapHit (talk) 20:17, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Image problem[edit]

I posted this note in reply to your comments at PR, but I wanted to make sure you saw it. Don't give up on the photo, Image:Joachim Löw.JPG. I think it's probably OK and that only the licensing page needs fixing. I poked around this morning and found a User:FlorianK, who is probably the Florian K mentioned on the image description page as the author. I'd suggest posting a note to FlorianK to ask about this. If my hunch is correct, the problem can be fixed by replacing the dead link to Florian K with a live one to User:FlorianK. Finetooth (talk) 19:47, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Francisco Manuel Durán[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Francisco Manuel Durán, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Fails WP:ATHLETE. Never played a professional game

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Intercontinental Cup[edit]

Hi. Thanks. Yes, it's quite difficult to find information about unused substitutes and I don't know if there's a complete database online. I made researches in internet, trying to compare as many sources as possible. Fans' website can give some detailed data (e.g. http://www.myjuve.it/stagione-1985-juventus/coppa_intercontinentale-juventus-argentinos_juniors-2-2-2617.aspx , http://www.juventus.altervista.org/1996int.htm). For the 1996 Final I had also a newspaper of the day after, but still I could not find the jersey number of the River Plate subs. Moreover, I found out the number of the substitutes in the 1985 Final by watching videos from youtube. WTer (talk) 11:24, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Johann Gajda[edit]

Hi ArtVandelay13! I requested speedy deletion of the Johann Gajda article because User:Jaellee and I both came to the conclusion that Gajda wouldn't pass WP:N, seeing as he never played football for a professional club and that the teams he managed were in the lower German leagues. I created the stub over two years ago, unaware of the criteria, but in spite of this, I can't see how the article can stay. Even at Olympiacos F.C. he wasn't head coach. Would you mind if I request speedy deletion again, or can you find some references for inclusion? I'd appreciate your views. Jared Preston (talk) 11:30, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply on my page. I do agree with the benefit of the doubt and it seems petty to delete the article for the sake of exclusionists, however, the infobox is wrong – at Olympiacos he was an assistant manager and at Hertha BSC he apparently only played for the 2nd or 3rd string team. Unfortunately, I don't think we can get around this. Jared Preston (talk) 14:31, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

David Alaba[edit]

What's your reasoning for undoing my additions of categories for Alaba? He is Filipino AND Nigerian. He just represents Austria at international level and should retain categories of being a Filipino and Nigerian footballer. Banana Fingers (talk) 06:55, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

I replied on my talk page... just in case you didn't put it on your watch list...
Fair enough about the "Filipino expatriate" category, but he is Filipino therefore the "Filipino footballer" category should stand. It's not as if one of his grandparents or some far distant grandparent was Filipino, it's his mother that's a Filipina which makes him Filipino regardless of him being Austrian born and representing Austria.

Club names[edit]

Hi there ART, VASCO here,

Regarding Simon Jentzsch: OK there, you gave absolutely no chance at all, reverting immediately, and offering an explanation i did not understand (adjective?). Don't worry, i will not edit there anymore...

My tactics were made clear i think in my summary, but i'll make another attempt in this message: i think club names should be compressed in box, written in full in storyline. I don't see the point of having "Vfl Wolfsburg" in box (only club in THE WORLD with that name, at least professionally) but OK, as i said, don't worry, i won't make any more edits in his page.

Keep up the good work (was only trying to help!), VASCO, Portugal - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 20:06, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

I think it should be the other way around. The infobox should have the full club name, with maybe only the city name in the text. What I think Vasco doesn't understand is that Karlsruher SC is a team from Karlsruhe, and that Karlsruher is the adjective of the city. Jared Preston (talk) 21:08, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Thomas Muller/Gerd Muller[edit]

I reverted your revision to exclude the assertion that Thomas Muller is Gerd Muller's namesake. The wikipedia page, and any dictionary definition of "namesake" clearly states that it's when a person, place, thing, etc is named out of regard for another. That would be the case with Muller if his first name was Gerd in honor of Gerd Muller. Cristiano Ronaldo for instance, is named out of regard for Ronald Reagan, so it would be factual to say that Ronald Reagan is Cristiano Ronaldo's namesake. It is not factual to say that Gerd Muller is Thomas Muller's namesake. Simply sharing the same family name is a coincidence, not a situation where Thomas was given the last name Muller out of regard for Gerd. 208.40.242.41 (talk) 01:10, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

?!?!!?[edit]

Hi there ART, VASCO from Portugal here,

What on earth was that reply on Festus Agu, to my anon address?!!?!? Maybe i was a bit hysterical, but "fuck off"? I am waiting for a sincere apology, rest assured, why those manners?

Now, for the technical approach: i told you "this is not German wiki" because you once told me that is the way German clubs are addressed to, but this in English wiki, first thing. Second, about WP:COMMONNAME: i feel infoboxes should be compressed to the maximum, giving the idea to the reader on where did the player play, the fullnames appear in storyline. Really, why should the box read "1. FC St. Pauli" when "St. Pauli" is more than enough to inform people, then the fullname in storyline should comply with the common name rule.

Your answer was one of the most rude i have ever received, if not the MOST without doing NOTHING before that merited it. I sure would like some explanation, if you think an apology is too much. Attentively - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 13:22, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

West Germany[edit]

Hey there. You undid a correction of my own mistake upon creation of the Michael Woythe article. After World War II, Germany wasn't officially reunited until 1990. You are quite right, the Berlin Wall wasn't erected until 1961, but anyone born post-1949 in the western Bezirke of Berlin, or western Germany, was technically born in West Germany. Have a look at the West Germany article, I'm not a great historian myself, but Germany as it is today has only been a unified state since 3 October 1990. Please let me know if you have a different point of view. Jared Preston (talk) 17:54, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Mehmet Ekici[edit]

WP:MOSBIO

Opening paragraph

The opening paragraph should have:

  1. Name(s) and title(s), if any (see, for instance, also Wikipedia:Naming conventions (royalty and nobility));
  2. Dates of birth and death, if known (see Wikipedia:Manual of Style (dates and numbers)#Dates of birth and death);
  3. Context (location, nationality, or ethnicity);
    1. In most modern-day cases this will mean the country of which the person is a citizen or national (according to each nationality law of the countries), or was a citizen when the person became notable.
    2. Ethnicity or sexuality should not generally be emphasized in the opening unless it is relevant to the subject's notability. Similarly, previous nationalities or the country of birth should not be mentioned in the opening sentence unless they are relevant to the subject's notability.

I have added the emphasis on 3.2, which is what I meant to reference in the article, not 3.1. We went through the same thing at Mesut Özil‎. There were several strong Turkish nationals who imposed their will to have his third-generation Turkish heritage emphasized in the opening paragraph and several footy people voiced strong objection to it on the talk page. I can't see this happening at Mehmet Ekici until FIFA recognizes him as playing for Turkey. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:29, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Ekici is a German national until he makes his appearance for Turkey senoir team or at least named to the game roster. Raul17 (talk) 23:01, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Please change your recent change. I am at WP:3RR and don't want to be blocked for breaking that. Your changed the lede to read "Mehmet Ekici (born 25 March 1990 in Turkish-Munich) is a German" when I think you meant to have it read "Mehmet Ekici (born 25 March 1990 in Munich) is a Turkish-German". I think it would be better as "Mehmet Ekici (born 25 March 1990 in Munich) is a German-born footballer of Turkish heritage" and the section on Turkish media claiming that he has elected to play at the national level for Turkey would tie-in with that. I also think it would be better left-out altogether since the reference (http://www.fcn.de/team/spieler/profil/ekici/) doesn't mention his Turkish heritage. I will mention it at the footy project if it is left in since it should be discussed.

I see that while I was writing this you made the change, but please consider my suggestion. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 23:22, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Ekici 2[edit]

I misunderstood your position! I thought this was about being German footballer or Turkish (as in representing a national team); the part about him wanting/going to play for Turkey threw me! I would have look at Zidane's page to see how his heritage is handled. Sorry, my mistake!! Raul17 (talk) 04:03, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

According to FIFA Ekici is a German [3]. I have restored this fact back to the FC Bayern wiki. At some point FIFA will probably update their website and/or his status, but officially he is still classified as a German. Erikeltic (Talk) 20:33, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
That article is not a bible of players' nationalities, it's just statistics for FIFA-competitions. Plenty of players have played for their countries without playing in FIFA competitions (only UEFA, or friendlies, or other confederation), so won't be listed on that page. That page isn't useful for these purposes: Ekici won't be listed there as Turkish until he plays in the finals of a World Cup for them. The nationality flag is to show the nation the player represents, it's very clear. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 21:28, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
To put it another way: FIFA set the rules of players' nationality - who do we think more reliably abides by these rules, a particular part of the website, or a member federation playing international football? ArtVandelay13 (talk) 21:44, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
I hope you don't misunderstand my position; I believe he will be recognized as Turkish at some point by FIFA. I believe you feel this way too and just want to "cut cut to the chase". Am I right? Currently, however, FIFA says he is German. He is both Turkish and German, but what is at issue is that our article should reflect what FIFA is reporting. Can you provide any other examples of national players that FIFA has said is of one nationality, while we claim they are of another? Erikeltic (Talk) 23:12, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
The FIFA site to which you refer only lists plays who have played in the tournament finals of FIFA competitions: Ekici will not be recorded as Turkish until/unless he plays in the World Cup Finals. He could score the winning goal in UEFA Euro 2012 and that site will not reflect him being Turkish, because it's not that site's job to do that: it's just a page of historical statistics. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 23:22, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Can you find one reliable source from FIFA that says he is a Turk? Erikeltic (Talk) 23:23, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Not direct from FIFA, because he hasn't played for Turkey in a competition directly run by FIFA, but the TFF abide by FIFA's rules, International Friendlies abide by their rules, so that's pretty clear and unambiguous evidence. This is something that's actually happened under the auspices of FIFA, and the fact that their website hasn't covered it shouldn't stop us reflecting that. I don't see why the reference has to come from the absolute top, FIFA's website is just one of many, and it isn't fully comprehensive. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 23:35, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Here's an example for you: René Schneider won the European championship with Germany in 1996, but only won one cap. It wasn't in a World Cup game, so he isn't listed by FIFA at all. So what then? It shows at the very least that Ekici's change will not necessarily be represented if it goes far enough. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 23:40, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Or Nikola Nikezic: Played for Serbia and Montenegro in the 2004 Olympics before Montenegro broke away, now a Montenegrin international, but listed as Serbian by FIFA because he didn't play in the World Cup. [4]. I can't see that by any definition he is Serbian, except historically - and all that site is is a historical site. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 23:48, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Neither of these examples is comparable to the subject at hand. RE; Rene Schneider (the footballer, not the Chilean) was apparently German and nobody is aruging over a dissolved country. If he was listed as an "East German" then I would tend to agree with you, but that is not the case here. Erikeltic (Talk) 23:51, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
The Nikezic thing is directly comparable - the circumstances of his change in nationality may be different, but it proves my point: that that particular part of the FIFA website is not a reliable source, because it is not fully comprehensive and up-to-date and nor does it seek to be - you cannot use it as a reference, and certainly you can't hold it up as the only useful reference. A change in national borders is one way in which players can change nationality - it's a more egregious example, but that proves my point: if we follow these rules for Ekici completely and trust only this irrelevant section of the FIFA website, then you can only conclude that Nikezic is clearly Serbian - but clearly he is not. Agsin, the question is this: what is more reliable, a national football federation that comes under FIFA and obeys by its rules and the matches that it plays under those rules, or a section of the FIFA website that makes no intention of being fully comprehensive or up-to-date? ArtVandelay13 (talk) 00:00, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Take a look at this [5]. Specifically, take a look at Mario Gomez. There is a dual Spanish and German flag. What if we do the same for Ekici here? Would that be an acceptable compromise to you? Erikeltic (Talk) 23:56, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't mind that, but the template doesn't allow for it. In any case there'd only be the same dispute over which is the primary flag, but the whole point of showing a player's nationality is to show who the player represents (or would represent). In Ekici's case, that's Turkish. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 00:03, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
We have not reached a consensus, the examples you provided are not relevant or comparable, and regardless of what you believe FIFA is the governing body and they classify him as German. (period) I suggest we A) refrain from modifying this article until consensus is reached and B) involve other editors in this disucssion--which should be taking place on the talk page of the article. Erikeltic (Talk) 12:28, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

FA Youth Cup Finals[edit]

I'm afraid I don't understand your rationale for retaining those redlinks. Sure, some of those players might become notable IN THE FUTURE, but they're not notable yet. Removing the links not only removes the suggestion that they might be notable, but also helps to dissuade users from creating articles for said non-notable players. – PeeJay 10:01, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

You forget that it is possible to search through Wikipedia for articles that contain certain text strings. Hence, if a biographical article is created, its creator can search for instances where that person's name is mentioned in other articles and introduce a link there. Furthermore, many of the players mentioned in the FA Youth Cup Finals articles have long since given up on football as a career and would likely never be sufficiently notable to deserve an article. According to WP:RED, such links should be removed. – PeeJay 02:56, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Ekici[edit]

Your link didn't show me anything. Also, the table states that it's FIFA-recognized, not the country that recognizes him. Eventually he will show correctly on the FIFA site, so don't worry about the reference, at least not for my sake. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:43, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Walter. FIFA is the regulating body, not Turkish football. Erikeltic (Talk) 23:08, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
But I re-iterate what I wrote above: the TFF have to follow FIFA rules, so what they do is a much more reliable guide than a non-comprehensive website. The fact that they have picked him, means he is eligible for them under the rules laid down by FIFA. What happens in the actual game should be followed far more closely than an arbritarily chosen website. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 23:20, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
And I will reiterate what I wrote above: FIFA says he is a German. Erikeltic (Talk) 23:20, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
The FIFA source is a non-comprehensive page of historical statistics. FIFA says he was German. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 23:23, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Rainer Baumann[edit]

Hi! It seems you recently created an unreferenced biography of a living person: Rainer Baumann.

Medaltemplates[edit]

Hi, I have a question about your edit in Thomas Müller. Template:Infobox football biography 2 says about medaltemplates:

Olympic medal templates can be added here. See {{MedalOlympics}} for a list of templates. MedalTop and MedalBottom are not needed.

I don't think that this parameter is intended for non-olympic honors or has this been changed without updating the documentation? --Jaellee (talk) 21:12, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

I have (in rare cases) reverted similar edits referring to these two sentences. If you want to use this parameter for non-olympic honors, I don't disagree in principle. But I think that this is quite a change from standard practice for infoboxes and you should have consensus from the football community for this. I would really like know the general opinion on this before starting to change infoboxes. --Jaellee (talk) 22:18, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Route Map Templates into Route Infoboxes[edit]

THe Route Infoboxes were primarily developed for US lines that have simple route map templates. The UK (Scottish) Route Map templates have been developed way beyond the capabilty of the infobox to handle:

  • Many are too wide (for example North Clyde Line)
  • Use of the right justified small italic text avaiable in the BS templates becomes unreadable
  • You will not that the word Legend appears above and below the title box. This is because the BS-header template is not entirely compatible with the line infobox. probably a minor incompatibility issue with {{infobox rdt}}.

Single line templates, such as Whifflet Line and Maryhill Line will work (I think anything that does not go above {{BS4}} will probably work) except for the double incidence of the Legend as mentioned above. Can I suggest that for these reasons you consider the appropriateness of route map templates into the infobox, before adding. --Stewart (talk | edits) 20:27, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Henryk Lihsa[edit]

A tag has been placed on Henryk Lihsa, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

error

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Wilbysuffolk talk 08:23, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Main page appearance: Liverpool F.C.[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Liverpool F.C. know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on March 15, 2012. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/March 15, 2012. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or his delegate Dabomb87 (talk · contribs), or start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

The Shankly Gates at Anfield

Liverpool Football Club is an English Premier League football club based in Liverpool. It has played at its home ground, Anfield, since its founding in 1892. The club has won eighteen League titles, the second most in English football, as well as seven FA Cups and a record eight League Cups. It has also won more European titles than any other English club, with five European Cups, three UEFA Cups and three Super Cups. The most successful period in Liverpool's history was the 1970s and 1980s, when the club won numerous honours both domestically and in Europe. The club's supporters have been involved in two major tragedies: the first was the Heysel Stadium disaster in 1985, in which charging Liverpool fans caused a wall to collapse, killing 39 Juventus supporters. In the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, 96 Liverpool supporters died in a crush against perimeter fencing. Liverpool have long-standing rivalries with city neighbours Everton and with Manchester United. The team has played in an all-red home strip since 1964, and its anthem is "You'll Never Walk Alone". (more...)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Kit left arm three white left shoulder stripes.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Kit left arm three white left shoulder stripes.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Nikthestoned 15:54, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Image in the Ambivalence article[edit]

Hello, I'm a little surprised that you reverted my edit here when the next step should be taking it to the talk page. But that's OK, I've started a discussion on the talk page in order to hash it out there. I'm notifying the original editor who uploaded and inserted the image as well. Thanks. SQGibbon (talk) 23:15, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Hello again. Thanks for resizing the image at the Ambivalence article -- regardless of its value it was far too large for the article. However, I still do not see how it unambiguously represents ambivalence. It still looks like a joke. I've actually reported this to ANI here. It's not about you but about the original editor who added the image and the ongoing conflict with him and his friends. Just thought I'd let you know. SQGibbon (talk) 22:03, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Ambivalence shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. 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.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 13:52, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

EuroCity[edit]

Hello ArtVandelay

The list of EuroCity trains has been moved to a separate article. This means that a reader doesn't has an overview any more without leaving the article. Moreover the new list seems to serve trainspotters at border crossings. The list that was included in this article mentioned every name once, what makes sense for readers not knowing which EuroCitys exist(ed) and are looking for their routes and period of operation. The new listing wrongly assumes that the reader already knows the route of a specific train. In case you already know the specific route you can find the train at one or more routes, this is not very helpful for someone who is looking for info about EuroCity services. Many times the links in the new table don't provide info regarding the specific train but are linked to the subject the train's name was derived from. I would like to propose restoring the list of names and keep the new table as EuroCities per route. It is a good list for those wanting to study specific routes, but despite the effort to make it, it isn't an overview of EuroCity services.--JB63 (talk) 17:14, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! BlueMoonset (talk) 02:03, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Note: DYK-nominated articles need to have at least one inline source citation per paragraph in the body of the article, but two of the four paragraphs are uncited. I don't imagine it should be difficult to add these sources, at which point the article should be ready for approval. BlueMoonset (talk) 02:03, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Kroos[edit]

Dude, no need to be so sarcastic about Kroos. You know we can only go on what is reported in the media, and all the sources I'd seen made no mention of Kroos' injury. After all, would he have played even if he was fit? I think it's safe to say that Götze and Badstuber would have played had they been fit, but would Kroos have got in the team ahead of Martínez, Schweinsteiger or Müller? – PeeJay 22:48, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Hey ArtVandelay13

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Don't go![edit]

As you may have read on WT:FOOTY, I fully agree with your sentiments. However, I urge you not to stop editing - I also once stopped, but then realised that if I did that, the people who are damaging the project win. It means being stubborn, but in the end, sticking around will benefit. I also hope that others will come to their senses and stop deleting information. I look forward to seeing @GiantSnowman:'s response, as he does seem to be a reasonable chap most of the time. Number 57 11:07, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
