Writing mdy dates.[edit]

In writing dates in mdy (month-day-year) form, there's always a comma before the day and the year, as in "December 25, 2014". "December 25 2014" is wrong, and at the very least, bad form. –HTD 03:36, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Rodolfo Cota, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. GiantSnowman 09:08, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello, from Portugal,

can you please leave Imanol Agirretxe and Xabi Prieto's statistics exactly as they were? For example Prieto had 344 games and 49 goals until the END of last season, this one he has 22/3, so it's equal to 366/52, why "correct" to 330?

Thank you, happy editing -- (talk) 15:18, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Infobox player stats[edit]

As you know, infobox player stats are league only. Now, for MLS it's regular season stats only. We don't count playoff matches. – Michael (talk) 03:54, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Also, please pay attention to the date formats. Don't change it to Day-Month-Year format if it's in Month-Day-Year format. Walter Görlitz (talk) 05:36, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Use of non-free images[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images. However, it appears that one or more of the images you have recently uploaded or added to a page, specifically Bulgaria national football team, may fail our non-free image policy. Most often, this involves editors uploading or using a copyrighted image of a living person. For other possible reasons, please read up on our Non-free image criteria. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:05, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Please try and check the licensing of an image before adding it to an article to see whether it is freely licensed or non-free content. Many of the national team logos you've been adding (or re-adding after they've been removed) to football related articles are non-free images, which means that each usage of said image must satisfy all 10 of the criteria listed in WP:NFCC and not be any of the usages of listed in WP:NFC#Unacceptable use. WP:NFCC#10c requires that each usage of non-free content have a valid separate, specific non-free use rationale (nfur) for each usage, and WP:NFCCE requires that the person wishing to use non-free content provide the relevant nfur. Often all that needs to be dome is for a valid nfur to be provided for the desired usage; However, non-free images such as File:Bulgaria_football_union.png are generally only considered acceptable use in the stand-alone Wikipedia articles about their respective national federations (in this particular case Bulgarian Football Union per Number 17 of WP:NFC#UUI since the federation article is considered the "parent" article for all of the various national teams; Usage in individual team articles ("child" articles) is generally not considered acceptable on Wikipedia in an attempt to minimalize the use of the non-free image per WP:NFCC#3. If you have any questions about this you can ask them here, or you can ask at WP:FFD or WP:MCQ if you prefer. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:05, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
