Template:Milton Wildcats football coach navbox[edit]

Bagumba, your continued vote to delete on the discussion regarding Template:Milton Wildcats football coach navbox is working directly against long-standing cooperation and consensus at Wikipedia:WikiProject College football and related projects. Do you need List of Milton Wildcats head football coaches to be created to strike your delete? Jweiss11 (talk) 01:08, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

@Jweiss11: I'd be satisfied if WP:LISTN is demonstrated.—Bagumba (talk) 02:19, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
You are aware that we have hundreds of parallel navboxes for similar college football programs, correct? See: Category:American college football coach navigational boxes. And that we have many coach lists for sub-major football programs at Category:Lists of college football head coaches? Jweiss11 (talk) 02:27, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
I doubt I'll ever go on a campaign to nominate them. But someone bothered to open a TfD, so I !voted. I think they are fine for "major" programs where the respective lists can meet LISTN (whether or not an actual article exists). I don't agree that all programs merit one, but such is life in cookie-cutter WP.—Bagumba (talk) 04:01, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
As for the coaching lists, I agree that for minor programs they could probably be rolled back up into a main article for the program. But the navboxes should stay. They are a product of a decade of consensus and collaboration between multiple WikiProjects. An uninformed editor opened that TfD with an invalid rationale ("The school no longer exists"), and you have taken that opportunity to undermine broader consensus and collaboration with an inaptly rigid reading of the WP:NAVBOX. Wikipedia is cookie-cutter only the extent that we make it so. Jweiss11 (talk) 16:42, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Let's just agree to disagree on this one. Cheers.—Bagumba (talk) 22:59, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
That's one of my least favorite sayings. It's carries no meaning. It would be nice if you would take some responsibility for you own actions instead of shirking them and chalking them up to wiki-ether ("such is life"). My hope is that you can do better in the future. Happy editing. Jweiss11 (talk) 03:27, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

IP roster vandal[edit]

He’s back. Rikster2 (talk) 20:50, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 01:17, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Again Rikster2 (talk) 11:23, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
OK, blocked and protected.—Bagumba (talk) 16:52, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Protect Tyson Chandler?[edit]

It will take a few days before what is being reported actually happens Rikster2 (talk) 22:17, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Done.—Bagumba (talk) 23:04, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

User timeout[edit]

Take a look at the user/IP on the Jahii Carson article. Can you please take care of this - changing height from current team, adding unsourced POB, changing DOB from sources, etc. Rikster2 (talk) 13:14, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

I erred on the side of WP:BLPKIND and WP:BLPSELF, and protected the page and directed the user to either WP:BLPN or have Carson contact oversight. Let me know if there are further issues.—Bagumba (talk) 14:52, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Omri Casspi semi[edit]

Could Omri Casspi please be semi'd. After Casspi received a championship ring, the page is getting the Anderson Varejão champion treatment. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 03:45, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Procedurally, can you put a note about past consensus on article talk page first? Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 13:00, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
Done. DaHuzyBru (talk) 16:15, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I'll watchlist it for a bit, but feel free to let me know if it happens again.—Bagumba (talk) 17:29, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Jimmy Butler[edit]

Can you protect Jimmy Butler, Dario Saric and Robert Covington? Maybe the roster templates too? Rikster2 (talk) 18:41, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Justin Patton and Jerryd Bayless too Rikster2 (talk) 20:20, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
OK. Butler was actually already protected, so bumped it up to extended.—Bagumba (talk) 01:11, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Reporting a cut-and-paste move[edit]

Hello. I see you posted on my IP’s talk page, so I’ll come to you first: I seem to notice a cut-and-paste page move was made at Garda Regional Support Unit. I’d revert the move, but I am using a mobile device running Desktop Wikipedia (personal preference of the user on this IP at the moment), and the small screen makes my experience a bit limiting. Thanks in advance. (talk) 01:31, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Seems like someone already undid it and warned the user.—Bagumba (talk) 13:26, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
