Articles on Juninho, Copa Sudamericana 2005...[edit]

Hi, I liked your work. And English is not my native language too (I am from Brazil). I am glad to help. Feel free to ask for my help, if you need. Regards, Carioca 15:57, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your encouragements, I did a lot of biographies for the French wiki, mainly on Brazilian players, I my town of Lyon we have a good team (Olympique Lyonnais) with 3 excellent brazilian players, I start to write articles on them and then will do some more. Your help is appreciated, I saw what you did on the articles yesterday. A+ (as we say in France) Dingy 16:41, 10 November 2005 (UTC)


Hi, about the Cerezo article, I think that you should merge its content to the Toninho Cerezo article, and create a redirect (redirecting Cerezo to Toninho Cerezo). Your article is much better than the other one, however, this former football player is better known as Toninho Cerezo, and this is the reason why is better to redirect Cerezo to Toninho Cerezo. Anyway, keep up the good work. Regards, Carioca 05:00, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Right, I did not saw it, in Europe we called him generally "Cerezo". I made the changes as you indicated Thanks. My next one is Julio César da Silva, is it done already ? Dingy 05:09, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi, there is already an article about this player, here. Feel free to expand it, if you want. You can always check the Brazilian footballers category. Regards, Carioca 05:14, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Recopa Sudamericana[edit]

Thanks! But I couldn't have done it without your help putting all scores first. :)

Sebastian Kessel Talk 21:04, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Toninho Cerezo[edit]

Thanks! This encyclopedia is really very useful. Keep up the good work on the football articles.

Regards, Carioca 03:09, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

The rigth form of "Pepe"[edit]

I'm Renan, from Brazil, and i'm here to tell you that the right form to write José Macia's nickname is "Pepe", not "Pépé".


OK I will make the change, in fact the word is the same in French, but saw it differently in english. thanksDingy 06:20, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi, Renan is correct. The correct spelling of José Macia's nickname is Pepe. However, as there is aleready an article called Pepe, the better option is to use the move button and move the Pépé article to something like Pepe (footballer) or Pepe (football player). If you need any help, please, contact me. Keep up the good work, Dingy. Regards, Carioca 16:43, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

OK , done, moved to Pepe (footballer) G'day Dingy 17:16, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

I am glad to help. If possible, can you translate the following French articles: César Sampaio, Djalminha, Alex Mineiro, Júnior Baiano and Edilson? Regards, Carioca 02:39, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
Yes I will do it, it was also my plan to remove the red links, I work in parallel on the french and english versions of the same matter (Bola de Ouro), there are two other players on which I don't have information yet: Augustín Cejas (Santos FC) and Atílio Ancheta (Grêmio Football Porto-Alegrense). do you have something ? regardsDingy 03:06, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Hi. The Bola de Ouro 2005 winner has not been announced yet. Fred is ineligible to win, because he does not play for any Campeonato Brasileiro first division club. Regards, Carioca 18:31, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Hi: it seems to be Carlos Tévez in 2005, is it confirmed ? ThanksDingy 12:50, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
Probably Tevez will win, but the winner was not announced yet. However, another award, called Craque do Brasileirão, was won by Tevez.

Comercial (MT)[edit]

Comercial (MT) is Esporte Clube Comercial of Mato Grosso do Sul. On January 1, 1979, Mato Grosso do Sul was split off from the state of Mato Grosso. Until that year, Comercial disputed the Mato Grosso Championship. After the split, the club started to dispute the new Mato Grosso do Sul Championship. Regards, Carioca 19:02, 7 December 2005 (UTC)


Updated DYK query Did you know? has been updated. A fact from the article César Sampaio, which you recently created, has been featured in that section on the Main Page. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Copa Sudamericana 2005[edit]

Yes, it should be 2-2. I was way to happy celebrating to be accurate. Thanks! :)

Sebastian Kessel Talk 06:55, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

I know that you must be happy, on the web I cannot find how it was decided, penalties after extra time ? Dingy 13:01, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Article improvement drive[edit]

Hi Dingy,

The Football AID is restarting. The next project article is to be selected on January 1, 2006. Please look at the nominations and take part actively. Thanks. -Aabha (talk) 10:40, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Football AID[edit]

Thank you for participating in the Football AID vote this week.

Football World Cup has been selected as this week's collaboration. Please do help in working to improve it.

Frederico Chaves Guedes[edit]

Hi and happy new year. He scored that goal, playing for América Mineiro Futebol Clube, against Vila Nova Futebol Clube during a Copa São Paulo de Juniores match. The goal was scored 3.17 seconds after the match started. See this link. Please, add this info to the English article. Regards, Carioca 02:42, 4 January 2006 (UTC)


Hi. No, Valdo Cândido de Oliveira Filho has never played for Fluminense. It was another Valdo, who played for Fluminense some years before the better known Valdo was born. Regards, Carioca 21:03, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Christophe Lamaison[edit]

Hey thanks. Yeah, I've struggled to find really good resources, and clearly some aren't in English. Any more refs would be great. I'm going to get the article done as soon as I can. Are there any refs out there saying what clubs he played for and when? I don't think I have any of those yet. - Shudda talk 10:23, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

here it says that he played with (in this order)  : Peyrehorade, Bayonne, Brive, S.U. Agen, Bayonne. It is the information we have in the French text, no date yet but I will try to find something. He played with Brive when they won the European cup in 1997 and in 2000 when they won the French cup. In 2002 he won the French championship with Agen. He finished his career with Bayonne. Dingy 11:51, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
This reference [1], in english, gives the information on one part of his career :
CA Brive from 1996 to 2000
SU Agen from 2000 to 2002, it fits with the other information
Bayonne from 2002 to 2004
Saint Médard 2004 (Federale 2)
Dingy 11:57, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! Really appreciate it. Only other thing, did he retire after playing for Saint Medard in 2004? I was looking into that but couldn't find out. - Shudda talk 21:44, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
in [2] (discussion in French) it shows that he played durng the 2005-2006 season, until the final round in May 2006. he was then 35.. probably his last season Dingy 02:49, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, he may have retired now, but that ref is prob not acceptable, it's a message-board. Would need something more verifiable. Thanks for looking though. - Shudda talk 02:55, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

French rugby team[edit]

Hi Dingy, I noticed that you have worked on the French rugby team on the FR wikipedia, and I thought maybe if you get any spare time you could translate some of that stuff over to France national rugby union team. For example, the section on the colours/uniform and home grounds would be fantastic. But yeah, if you can do anything like that, it would be really great. Cheers. Cvene64 01:57, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi Cvene64, I have just finished the work on this article in french, in a few days I plan to propose it as Feature article, concerning the translation I will do something in a few days, of course afterwards you will have to check the wording ... Dingy 02:31, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Hi, thanks very much for the info on the crest and uniform, it really adds so much to the page. Great job. And congratulations on all the work that has been done on the FR wiki rugby articles (World Cup, 6N etc are all really really great). (also, sorry, I didnt see the above message from you until after your second one on my user page). Thanks again and good luck with your feature nomination. Cheers. Cvene64 09:03, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Waisale Serevi[edit]

Hey. Sorry to bug you like I do, but was wondering if could you help with the Waisale Serevi article? The specific section of the article i'm talking about is the bit about his French clubs, Stade Montois, then Stade Bordelais. I've added as much as I can discover in English, but there isn't much out there. Was also wondering if you could find out whether he learn't french? Thanks. - Shudda talk 10:07, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi, he was interviewed in March 2001, in the report it is said that he and his family speak english and that the interview had to be in english (with a good dictionary) [3]. Dingy 02:09, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! - Shudda talk 08:15, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Collaboration of the Fortnight[edit]

Hey, I nominated France national rugby union team for WP:RU's collaboration of the fortnight. If you would like you can support my nomination here. - Shudda talk 04:28, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Coaches of France national rugby union team[edit]

Hey, while France national rugby union team is still the collaboration I want to get as much of it done as possible. I was wondering if you knew of a reference that gives a list of coaches of the team? The list does not need to go back to 1903, but should probably include the last 40 years (the whole idea of a coach not popular many years ago, so a comprehensive list will be impossible). Anyway, please let me know where I can get a list of coaches, even if it's only the last twenty years. - Shudda talk 11:39, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi, when I wrote the French version I could not find the kind of list that you are looking for, I had to define one by looking into the history of the national team and detect the places where the replacement of the coach was mentionned (E.Escot, J.Rivière, Un siècle de rugby, Ed. Calmann-Lévy, 1997 (ISBN 2-7021-2784-3) ( Henri Garcia, La légende du tournoi, Minerva, 2005, 254 p (ISBN 2-8307-0793-1) Dingy 12:31, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Hey, me again! Another request, would it be possible to put the image here up on wiki-commons? I'd do it myself but my French is poor. - Shudda talk 11:17, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi, it is done

James Milner Career section Not really asking for full feedback on this article (although I wouldn’t mind it). I’d just like to know what you feel the best way the divide up the Career section is, by Club, by season, not at all or some other way. Please leave your reply under the section in my talk page named “Milner Career section”. Buc 16:26, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Translation request[edit]

Hey. I recently wrote All Blacks versus France at rugby union and was wondering if you could translate the French article Match de rugby à XV Nouvelle-Zélande - France (1999) into English? I think it'd be a good article to have here. - Shudde talk 04:55, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I may do that later this year, at the moment I am too interested to contribute on rugby (english version) as some impose their views and there is apparently no way to modify the content of articles such as the one on WC 2007 teams. Dingy 02:43, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes it is frustrating. I've certainly seen a few examples lately of people ignoring WP:CONSENSUS. - Shudde talk 02:52, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Poll for the French people pics[edit]

Hi there. Following discussion and for practical reasons, we have decided not to take votes "against" into account at Talk:French people/Vote. I see you did vote against Eric Cantona and it would be appreciated if you could remove that vote. Also when you add names to the list, make sure there is a free non-copyrighted picture available for that person. Many thanks - Wikigi | talk to me | 16:00, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello Dingy! I see you voted for Isabelle Adjani in the poll for the French poeple pics. Unfortunatelly there are no free pics of her available. Would you like to vote for someone else? Thanks! The Ogre (talk) 00:25, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
