Margate F.C.[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm not a Margate supporter, although I was born there and occasionally used to go along to Hartsdown Park if Gillingham weren't playing -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 07:24, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

List of Brentford F.C. seasons[edit]

The figures of 2.12, 2.10 and 2.07 points per game in the lead section of List of Brentford F.C. seasons are not possible as there were only 2 points for a win in those days. Did you get those from a particular source or are they calculations that you made? Cheers. --Jameboy (talk) 15:40, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tony Harper, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Southern League Cup (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Infobox editing[edit]

Please stop editing the infobox against the standard formatting (i.e. removing/adding whitespace etc.) GiantSnowman 09:54, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

I don't intentionally, it is something the visual editor has started to do. Beatpoet (talk) 12:54, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, please stop editing with visual editor then! GiantSnowman 15:28, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Beatpoet, I notice that you have been adding articles to wartime guest categories. I haven't looked at any of the others, but Albert Aiken popped up on my watchlist. Per WP:CATV, all categorisation should be verifiable, which means that those categories should be supported by cited content within the article. There is no mention of Aiken being a wartime guest at Watford in the article currently. Could you possibly add a line and your reference please? Thanks, Nzd (talk) 19:22, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Career stats tables[edit]

I'm nit sure where you're getting the formatting/template from, but please can you ensure you use the MOS in future... GiantSnowman 13:48, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Again, please use the MOS - Dave Metchick formatting is bogus... GiantSnowman 13:00, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
And you've done it again on Mel Scott (also the infobox) - why? If you don't start responding soon then this becomes a competence issue, and might result in you being blocked. GiantSnowman 14:08, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Ron Greenwood, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page LMA (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
