Checking sources[edit]

Thank you for your message. Regarding the two edits referred to, the official websites of the two clubs affected make no mention of the information you have added. I've only been able to confirm those two, but two of two is a high positive. If you were to provide references to the edits you make, as per Wikipedia policy, it would be easier to confirm. --Technopat (talk) 13:32, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

If your references can confirm your edits, I shall be happy to apologise for my "overzealousness" and, of course, withdraw my warnings. --Technopat (talk) 13:34, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for providing the sources. One of them confirms the Heini transfer, for which I have apologised on my talk page and here (see above). The other confirms the Kastratin transfer, for which I shall also apologise on my talk page and above.--Technopat (talk) 23:01, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Doug Bergqvist stats[edit]

Hi there, do you have a source which confirms Doug Bergqvist's stats at Farnborough? Cheers, GiantSnowman 22:34, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

They can be found on the Farnborough FC website: http://www.farnboroughfc.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=53&Itemid=143&ffc_pid=205. Incodentally, the website is incorrect when it states he's a midfielder, User:BeardedAvenger Bearded Avenger (talk) 12:38, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Finnish League and Cup articles[edit]

Hi Bearded Avenger. I am making contact with those Editors that take an active interest in Finnish football on English Wikipedia.

For a long time I have been happy to work on Finnish football on Wikipedia without making contact with other Finnish football enthusiasts - basically I like preparing articles / undertaking tasks that interest me and contact with others has not been important. However recently some of my work was changed by a Wikipedia Reviewer and this has led me to question what approach I should be following and indeed what approach would other Finnish football enthusiasts wish to adopt?

The current issue I face is the naming of Finnish Football League and Cup pages. I have adopted the approach that we should always be using the Finnish name in the title, for example 2007 Ykkönen and 2001 Veikkausliiga. However, I am aware that words like Mestaruussarja mean very little to most English speaking Wikipedia users. I therefore have included the English name in the title as well in recent pages, for example, 1936 Mestaruussarja – Finnish League Championship, 1938 Suomensarja – Finnish League Division 2 and 2000 Kakkonen – Finnish League Division 2. I thought that this approach might be a suitable naming convention until the Reviewer changed "2012 Suomen Cup - Finnish Cup" back to 2012 Finnish Cup.

The basic question I am asking is whether Finnish League and Cup articles should have a Finnish or English title or some form of hybrid?

I provide examples below:

Finnish Title English Title Hybrid Title
2012 Veikkausliiga 2012 Finnish Championship 2012 Finnish Veikkausliiga
2012 Kolmonen 2012 Finnish Division 3 2012 Finnish Kolmonen
2012 Suomen Cup 2012 Finnish Cup 2012 Finnish Suomen Cup
2012 Suomen Liigacup 2012 Finnish League Cup 2012 Finnish Liigacup
1938 Maakuntasarja 1938 Finnish Division 3 1938 Finnish Maakuntasarja
1954 Suomensarja 1954 Finnish Division 2 1954 Finnish Suomensarja
1970 II divisioona 1970 Finnish Division 2 1970 Finnish II divisioona
1986 III divisioona 1986 Finnish Division 3 1986 Finnish III divisioona
1997 Ykkönen 1997 Finnish Division 1 1997 Finnish Ykkönen

I have read Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English) and Wikipedia:Article titles but have not reached a firm conclusion yet on the best way forward in establishing a consistent approach. The issue does matter with respect to the corrections I must make to existing pages and the tens of pages yet to be prepared. It could also carry implications for some of the articles that you currently contribute to.

I think that the matter would best be addressed on a proper basis and encourage that the issue is considered on the Talk Page of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Finland task force. If the matter is of concern to you as well, please add your name to the list of participants on the main page.

You may also wish to comment on the project structure that I have prepared.

Kind regards - (Finnish Gas (Finnish Gas 13:57, 23 February 2012 (UTC)).

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Kotkan Työväen Palloilijat may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s and 2 "{}"s likely mistaking one for another. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • During December 2013 a merger took place with breakaway club [[FC KooTeePee]], as part of which [[FC KooTeePee}} changed their name to FC Kotkan Työväen Palloilijat. Therefore as of the 2014 season KTP will play
