Disambiguation link notification for April 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Alan Keely, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Leinster Senior League (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Message from Sdgoddess831[edit]

Hi, I was curious what your connection is with Deltopia and why you insisted on updating to Deltopia as well as removing the names of the originators of Floatopia from the Deltopia page? My friend asked that I help her with the wikipedia update as they have fond memories of the occasion and origination. Do you have history or personal knowledge of this event? If you would like, I can send you the narrative of the history, if that makes you more comfortable with retaining the content. Let me know. Sdgoddess831 (talk) 20:38, 27 June 2016 (UTC)sdgoddess831

@Sdgoddess831: Per Wikipedia policy WP:VERIFY and, to some extent, WP:PSTS, there are specific criteria as to what can be included in articles. Some of the information listed in Deltopia does not qualify and has therefore been removed. My lack of a connection to Deltopia is irrelevant, but having a connection as you stated above may be against the Wikipedia guideline WP:COI. Let me know if this clears things up satisfactorily. Thanks, GauchoDude (talk) 13:11, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Fuji Edit[edit]

The link listed his high school, but do we need to list the school they attended as a youth club? No other league does this and the high school is rarely an established "soccer club". deathgripz 18:22, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

  • @UncleTupelo1: Soccer in the United States is set up very differently than it is elsewhere so I wouldn't expect there to be similarities when compared to other locations with a different set up. We most certainly do not need to list a high school that any given player attended as a "youth club", but I think we most certainly should if said player ultimately played for that high school in his youth, which in Fujii's case he did. I see no difference in high school play vs. youth "club" play as they're both organized, amateur teams being represented. GauchoDude (talk) 18:32, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

IRC?[edit]

Are you on IRC? --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 19:11, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

@Zackmann08: As I am unaware of what IRC is, I would say probably not. If you'd like to contact me outside of my talk page, please feel free to email me, although I'm much less active there. GauchoDude (talk) 19:19, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
Lol!! Gotcha. Just curious. Disregard. :-) --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 19:21, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Rollback granted[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi GauchoDude. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! – Juliancolton | Talk 15:30, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Working on Bob Sipchen's article[edit]

Thanks for the note about Bob Sipchen's article, and sorry for taking a while to get back to you! Yes, I'm working with awareness of WP:COISELF, WP:AUTO, and WP:BLPCOI, and it's important to me to treat this article like any other article. As with other BLP articles where the subject is commenting or contributing, I believe the best approach is to listen to the subject's comments with open ears, make an effort to look for sources, and write the article in a neutral fashion according to available sources. If there are no available sources for something after asking and looking, it's best to remove the unsourced information until sources can be found. Dreamyshade (talk) 00:25, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

@Dreamyshade: Agreed. Seems like you and I run across many of the same Santa Barbara-centric articles. I look forward to our future interactions and improving all of these together. Thanks, GauchoDude (talk) 17:20, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
