BBC Sport[edit]

Could you remove BBC Sport (and Sky Sports) from your AWB script please? Your changes counteract those of the Ohconfucius script. This has also been discussed here, so there's no consensus for such wholesale changes. Thanks, Nzd (talk) 16:38, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

When I set these up, the consensus was that these sources should be treated as "website"/"work". However, as it seems the consensus has changed, I'll modify my regexes accordingly. Thanks for letting me know about this. Colonies Chris (talk) 20:49, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Per this please revert. Soccerbase is not a work, it's a publisher (we have templates which clearly do not italicise Soccerbase and are used throughout Wikipedia correctly). Also, why change A.F.C. Bournemouth to AFC Bournemouth please? The Rambling Man (talk) 21:10, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
If you'd bothered to check - as I have just done - you'd have discovered that the article on the Bournemouth team was titled AFC Bournemouth until someone moved it two days ago. Thank you for notifying me. Now stay off my talk page, as I've told you before. Colonies Chris (talk) 21:16, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Actually, Soccerbase is a bit of an oddity in that {{soccerbase}} uses a "playername at Soccerbase" format, while {{soccerbase season}} does use the work/publisher format, displaying "Games played by playername in season. Soccerbase. Centurycomm".
The Bournemouth dots have been the subject of various discussions recently. The move two days ago was a restoration of the original article title, after a move a couple of weeks ago (see log). Nzd (talk) 21:37, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

List of Hamilton Academical F.C. players[edit]

We don't need a 'defaultsort' when every category has a different sorting's pointless. GiantSnowman 07:25, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
