Soccerway stats[edit]

Hello, first of all I'd like to congratulate you for the pages related to football clubs that you have created on wikipedia. I've noticed that sometimes you use soccerway.uk as a source of a matchs' stats. I'v also seen that you create huge amounts of data in small periods of time. Is there any way of automatically creating wikipedia match stats using other sites as a source? The traditional way seems a bit too time-consuming. Thanks again for your contribution. --Txuriurdin (talk) 23:41, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Falkirk F.C.[edit]

Hi, Cal Umbra, I'm beginning the copy-edit you requested for the above article at the GOCE request page. Please feel free to contact me, or to correct or revert my edits if I'm doing something I shouldn't. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 03:56, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi again Cal, can you please clarify the following: "When the SPL was created from the old Premier Division, a play-off match that was held between the second bottom team in the top division and the team ranked second of the First Division was abolished during the 1997–98 season." Was this play-off match between the club second from the bottom (9th?) and the club placed second in the same Division, the SPL First Division? Or was it between the clubs at 1st and 2nd positions as happens in England? I'm not into football and I find that sentence most confusing. Thanks, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 05:48, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
Hi Baffle, yes it was the team ranked second from bottom (9th) in the Premier Division and the team ranked 2nd from the division below (First Division), with the winners earning a place in the Premier Division the next season. The team ranked last were (and still are) automatically relegated and the team who won the First Division were automatically promoted. I think what might be confusing you is the creation of the SPL. The SPL is basically exactly the same as it was beforehand when it was the Premier Division except it "broke away" from the leagues below, that's why relegation/promotion rules changed and Falkirk missed out on the play-offs. I hope that makes sense. I'll try and reword it again for you if it is still nonsense. Cal Umbra (talk) 20:43, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
Aha I see, thanks for clarifying that sentence - it was the term 'top division' that threw me. I understand now and I'll clarify on the article. :-) Also, non-article related - could you add a closing </font> tag to your sig so that others' text isn't affected against their wishes? Thanks again. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 00:40, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
Apologies. Thanks for pointing that out! Cal Umbra (talk) 10:40, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── No worries; I'm now declaring the copy-edit done; feel free to contact me about any ongoing issues, or issues arising from it. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 21:56, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Grahamston F.C.[edit]

Hi Cal. I've redone the headlines, bumping the three up one level; style is that after a second level headline comes a third level, not a fourth. I have no idea why i only changed one of them yesterday ~ some kind of a blip! It must have looked a bit odd, and ought to look better now. Cheers, LindsayHello 05:05, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Hey Cal Umbra

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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

Hi, at Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge we're striving to bring about 10,000 article improvements and creations for the UK and Ireland and inspire others to create more content. In order to achieve this we need diversity of content, in all parts of the UK and Ireland on all topics. Eventually a regional contest will be held for all parts of the British Isles, like they were for Wales and the Wedt Country. We currently have just over 1900 articles and need contributors! If you think you'd be interested in collaborating on this and helping reach the target quicker, please sign up and begin listing your entries there as soon as possible! Thanks.♦ --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:40, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! So it would be a good chance to win something for improving stubs on African sportspeople, including footballers, athletes, Olympians and Paralympians etc, particularly female ones, but also male. Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing a few expanded articles on African Paralympians, Olympians and committees etc, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:13, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:44, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
