Your request for Autopatrolled[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi DaHuzyBru, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the autopatrolled right to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! kelapstick(bainuu) 14:17, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

@Kelapstick: Much appreciated! DaHuzyBru (talk) 15:19, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Durant height[edit]

Hey again. You know what you should do? You should put one of those message that you can only see while editing on the KD page saying don't change his height. That way nobody will change it. I don't know how but I am sure you do. While I'm here, I would myself like to thank you for what you do here. I know this isn't really worth saying but I go to that page every day, so thanks for that. DangerousJXD (talk) 00:07, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

@DangerousJXD: No worries, I appreciate it. In terms of Durant's height, there haven't been too many edits to his height recently (other than yourself!) so it's not imperative to add a hidden note, but because you have requested it, I shall. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 03:23, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Hey, DaHuzy, saw your edit. Are you aware that you can link things on Wikipedia (and maybe even off Wikipedia, I don't recall about the latter) in your edit summaries? - Bossanoven (talk) 07:20, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Bossanoven – I am aware of this, yes. I link WP:OVERLINK for example regularly. Why do you ask? DaHuzyBru (talk) 08:28, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
It's nothing too important, it's just that it seems that you make myriad edits with edit summaries containing urls and such without properly linking. It would be more helpful is all I'm saying. - Bossanoven (talk) 08:52, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Hm, ok thanks but, there's nothing wrong with that and I find it to be much simpler when I want to quickly link something. Linking a url makes it clear to see what you are referring to and it's simple to drag over it, right click and "Go to [url]". Thanks for the concern, but I've done that for while now and I'm not planning on changing that. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 08:58, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

You can't right click on a Mac. :) - Bossanoven (talk) 09:02, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

They way I do it: Press and hold the Control (Ctrl) key while you click the mouse button. DaHuzyBru (talk) 09:04, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Jimmy Butler[edit]

Hello!!! OK so, some body put one of them request image template at the Whiteside page so I thought I'd do the same for J. Butler. But now there is a picture? Who put it there? Maybe I'm blind because there was no image just a few days ago when I was at that page and I can't see anyone adding a pic in the edit history. I thought it might have been you so I was going to thank you but I don't know whether it was. Also what a crummy picture. Well at least there is a picture. -DangerousJXD (talk) 05:51, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

@DangerousJXD: Jimmy Butler has had this average looking picture for a while now. However, nearly every week, people attempt to add a new image that nearly always gets deleted off Wiki commons because they are either copyrighted or the user hasn't uploaded it correctly i.e. hasn't provided the correct information on legality. If you see here, this user has just now added this image claiming it to be his own work. This will likely be removed from commons in the coming days as that if definitely not their work. I always end up reverting back to the old average image once the failed attempts are deleted. Unless someone can upload a new image correctly, the "crummy" picture is going to Butler's only image that can be used. DaHuzyBru (talk) 06:59, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
That Butler pic can be seen here. It's not a free image. DaHuzyBru (talk) 07:04, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Why can't that image be used? Copyright? -DangerousJXD (talk) 07:06, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
The point of this is that the user claimed it to be his own work when it is clearly not. I'm not an expert on uploading images, I too have tried in the past and failed. All I know is that Flickr is the best place to find free images, but even here it's difficult as lots of them are copyright protected i.e. this image is not free because the owner/uploader has marked it as "All rights reserved". Whereas, if you can find an image like this one that is marked with "Some rights reserved", it can be distributed and used by others like Wikipedia. Wikipedia:Upload/Flickr is useful to determine what can and can't be uploaded. DaHuzyBru (talk) 07:16, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
How about this?: [1]

Someone can crop it and done right? -DangerousJXD (talk) 07:43, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes, per this. Nando de Colo already has that image. DaHuzyBru (talk) 07:49, 13 February 2015 (UTC)


Cool that you put that Tony Parker international picture in the article in the international section. I should have thought of doing that! -DangerousJXD (talk) 23:56, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

@DangerousJXD: Guess I don't like images going to waste :P DaHuzyBru (talk) 05:27, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

(I think this is the appropriate Barnstar) You seem to do a lot of things that I think need thanking! So I've decided to save some time and just give you a Barnstar! DangerousJXD (talk) 22:07, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Bulleen Boomers[edit]

Kyrie Irving's article mentions that his did played for Bulleen Boomers in Australia, except that article redirects to the women's team, Melbourne Boomers. Is the men's team part of the same organization as the women's? I'm wondering if one of those articles need to be expanded, a separate men's article is needed, or should it just not be linked at all. Since these types of sports organizations don't exist in the U.S, I'm probably missing something at (talk) 05:36, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

@Bagumba: Yeah, nah, the Melbourne Boomers (formerly Bulleen Boomers) are a separate Women's NBL team that has nothing to do with the second division Bulleen Boomers that play in the Big V (both men's and women's). Drederick Irving played for the Boomers when they were part of the South East Australian Basketball League in the 90s. So I think what's easiest is to just remove the link because yes, that is misleading linking to a separate women's team. If a new Bulleen Boomers article was to be created, it would need to be something like Bulleen Boomers (Big V) as to distinguish it, but I'm not going to start that – not many Aussie second division teams have articles.

Giants stadium[edit]

It's been wrong for many years but never changed. The official Giants website has now been changed, and so has the Giants Wiki page and the SBL Wiki page. Niels Hansen was the original designer and architect of the stadium, and it's a common German and Danish name. [User:Lukosius|Lukosius]] (talk) 20:16, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
