Speedy deletion nomination of 2013 MLS SuperDraft[edit]

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as 2013 MLS SuperDraft, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

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.

2013 MLS Superdraft[edit]

Hi,

how about keeping any traded draft picks, complete with references, on a temporary page within your userspace until the article will eventually be created? I did the same for NHL Entry Draft picks. Saves a lot of work. ;-) --Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 10:56, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on 2015 MLS SuperDraft 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, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

2004 MLS SuperDraft[edit]

I understand that using that date format avoids any nationalism issues, but there is no country on earth that uses YYYY-MM-DD as their standard date format. Since the article pertains directly to a North American subject, surely it should use the North American date format of Month Day, Year? – PeeJay 20:00, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

I prefer to use the international format because it is easy to use and easy to understand. While MLS is North American-based, the long-standing goal has been to increase the international stature of American (and Canadian) players and grow the league internationally. An international format seems appropriate.Bubbagump24 (talk) 14:27, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
So this is just your own personal preference, is it? Or is there a consensus among the members of the United States and Canada soccer task force? If it's just your opinion, then I think I should tell you that Wikipedia does have umbrella guidelines for this sort of thing. According to WP:STRONGNAT, "articles on topics with strong ties to a particular English-speaking country should generally use the more common date format for that nation". Further up that same page, it also says "Year-initial numerical (YYYY-MM-DD) dates (e.g. 1976-05-31) are uncommon in English prose, and should not be used within sentences. However, they may be useful in long lists and tables for conciseness." Since there are no major conciseness issues here, I think we should default to the North American date format. – PeeJay 14:55, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
You mean like the date that is listed after your signature? Oh wait, that's not the North American date format either. Maybe that should be changed, too. The international format is easy; it works. I doubt the dozens of people that visit this wikipage each month will be confused.Bubbagump24 (talk) 15:49, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't understand the reference to my signature. Why would my signature be in a mainspace page? Userspace pages don't have to follow mainspace guidelines since they're not for the majority of Wikipedia's readership to see. That article, on the other hand, is part of the encyclopaedia, and so we should make it so that everyone can understand it, not just those who are familiar with that style of date format. Wikipedia has these guidelines for a reason, you know. – PeeJay 18:55, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
Well...? – PeeJay 17:19, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
I could use your help researching and referencing the 2003 MLS SuperDraft. It appears nearly every pick was traded, some more than once. There are probably 30 trades we need to document. I'll take rounds 1-3 if you don't mind taking rounds 4-6. Before that if you could change the columns and place clubs before players since clubs pick players, not the other way around, then separate the players from their listed positions and create a column for positions. Then we can start researching the trades though it's time-consuming since MLS switched their domain name and basically deleted all press releases and league articles from prior years. It'll help to look at the 2002 standings and playoff results. That way you can set up a spreadsheet showing what the natural 2003 selection order was, then go from there. Thanks for your help!

Excellent work[edit]

I just wanted to commend you for a spectacular job on 2011 MLS SuperDraft. It's very well organized and well referenced. I'd like to encourage you to consider submitting it for featured list consideration. I think it's pretty close to meeting all of the criteria already (perhaps a slightly more expanded lead would be good). --SkotyWATC 00:18, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. It's very nice to receive a positive comment. If you read of trades for 2012 (or later) picks please help me maintain the 2012 MLS SuperDraft page. Thanks again. Bubbagump24 (talk) 21:17, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Seattle Sounders roster[edit]

I know there are reports, but if the official team website shows that the player is still on the roster, it's just me but I think it would be best not to remove the player until there actually full confirmation. Usually when they're no longer in camp, they're pretty much cut from the team, but I would wait to make sure. – Michael (talk) 20:51, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

None of the Supplamental picks are on there but Ford and Attaway are still in camp. – Michael (talk) 21:21, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Timbers Transfers[edit]

Hi. I do like the full job you did on the transfers. Excellent work. There is something that has been bugging me for awhile, though. I don't think players that never signed should go in the IN table, it's confusing despite your full explanations. This would include Bornstein, Findley and the draft picks who were never offered a contract. They need to be somewhere in the article, though. What do you think? DemonJuice (talk) 16:31, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm the guilty party that put them in the In table... mostly because I was being lazy. I am all for removing unsigned players from it, though. I just think there needs to be a draft section so that the picks are documented. DemonJuice (talk) 21:03, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

April 2011[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others and avoid editing disruptively.

In particular, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Intoronto1125 (talk) 22:00, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

For the edit on the Cory Elenio page. I changed his current team a little early it seems. Now i realize that many of these MISL players are just on break from the outdoor season. Funtimewithdave (talk) 19:27, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Your recent edit

  1. broke WP:MOSDATE on the article. It uses DMY.

Recreation of deleted articles[edit]

If an article has been deleted as part of a deletion discussion, do not recreate it as a substantially the same article. If you believe the concerns raised in the deletion discussion are no longer relevant, take the following steps:

  1. Talk to the deleting administrator (i.e. the admin who closed the deletion discussion).
  2. If you and the deleting admin cannot agree, or the deleting admin does not respond in a reasonable amount of time, then bring the discussion for review at WP:DRV.

If you do not follow the above steps, the article will be speedy deleted as per WP:G4. If you constantly inappropriately recreate deleted articles, despite all the cautions otherwise, you could be temporarily blocked. Singularity42 (talk) 19:50, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
