Drake Bulldogs[edit]

"The Drake is Great" is not the team catch phrase, show a source. I have listened on KRNT, read all the press releases by Drake University, read the Des Moines Register and they have written articles about there is NOT a name for the team. The only ones to reference it were two ESPNU announcers who do not follow the team at all. --Josh (talk) 22:40, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

My friend just because you cite a script, that isn't a source. That would be like me citing that Thomas Jefferson wrote the declaration of independence and citing the declaration on another article because their slogan was supposedly independence.--Josh (talk) 00:05, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

To reference something you have to have for example the name of the phrase in this case "The Drake is Great" from several sources that are using it in the maner of a catch phrase for the 2007-08 Drake Bulldogs men's basketball team. --Josh (talk) 00:31, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Please stop reverting the 2007-08 Drake Bulldogs men's basketball team page. That was not the team slogan, nor is that even a valid citation. --Josh (talk) 02:30, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Yahoo! Fantasy Sports (2nd nomination)[edit]

Please don't edit closed archived discussions, such as you did at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Yahoo! Fantasy Sports (2nd nomination). Corvus cornixtalk 20:54, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

It gets complicated. Re-edit the Yahoo! Fantasy Sports page and change "2nd nomination" to "3rd nomination", and be sure you put the correct, new AfD page, into the WP:AFD page. Corvus cornixtalk 21:00, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

No, there's no other template past the first time. Once you've applied the first template, and see that there's already an AFD nomination there, edit the article. The template that's already there should tell you that there is a previous discussion, and what you need to do to change it to create a new discussion. Corvus cornixtalk 23:13, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

For example, if you go and look at the page you put the template on, and edit it, you'll see {{AfDM|page=Yahoo! Fantasy Sports (2nd nomination)|date=2008 May 2|substed=yes|origtag=afdx}}. Change the "2nd nomination" to "3rd nomination". Corvus cornixtalk 23:15, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Hey, sorry if I snapped a bit in the AfD discussion. Notability isn't temporary, and if a subject is notable, it definitely deserves a page here. The fact that the page is poorly written is never a reason to delete if the subject is unquestionably notable. Ten Pound Hammer and his otters(Broken clamshellsOtter chirps) 23:51, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
I'm not an admin, but you don't need admin-ly powers to merge; you can always be WP:BOLD and do it yourself. However, there seem to be just enough sources for this to stand on its own, so I would say hold off on the merging until there is more of a consensus as to whether the info should be kept or just merged — right now, the consensus seems in favor of keeping.

Yahoo! Sports[edit]

In response to your latest comment on my userpage. In all honesty, it is not. It is a list of the games. Also why would Yahoo! want people to know about their failed games that they had to stop?--Josh (talk) 20:13, 3 May 2008 (UTC)


What articles have you contributed to. I do not see any at all. All you do is delete and try to agrivate me. Well, I hope you one day realize your actions are detrimental to wikipedia and are self serving your own motives. Why not contribute to wikipedia instead of sticking your opinion in places where it dosn't belong. --SportsMaster (talk) 21:05, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Alleged Wikistalking[edit]

Hello. Please see this report at Wikiquette Alerts which involves you. It is not clear to me whether or not the allegations are true, however, I was very concerned about the stub tagging regarding the NBA All-Star games. Although all of the articles on the All-Star games are formatted in the same way, it seems you only tagged as stubs the ones created by User:SportsMaster. If that was intentional, that kind of behavior is highly discouraged.

Anyway, let me know if you have any comments. And if you are following SportsMaster around, please stop. Thanks! --Jaysweet (talk) 20:51, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

All-Star "stubs"[edit]

Can I ask why you tagged 1997 NBA All-Star Game as a stub but not 1998 NBA All-Star Game, even though the former is more comprehensive? I am sorry if I have you all wrong, but it looks like you are only tagging them as stubs to piss off User:SportsMaster. Did I miss something? --Jaysweet (talk) 21:31, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

I am stubbing them all right now. -GoHuskies9904 (talk) 21:32, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
Okay. So can I ask... have you been following User:SportsMaster's contribs? I have to tell you, it looks a little fishy... but I'm not yet convinced either way. --Jaysweet (talk) 21:34, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

I do not follow anyone's contribs. In fact I like alot of his stuff. I'm trying to help where I can. Those NBA All-Star articles are nothing more but box scores. -GoHuskies9904 (talk) 21:36, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Alright, fair enough. Hopefully you guys can get along ;) --Jaysweet (talk) 21:39, 28 May 2008 (UTC)


I'll leave some comments there if the admin requests a comment from me. Just to warn you though it wouldn't be GoHuskies is great this, great that. Some of your comments to Master have not been constructive. I know he's difficult to deal with and I agree he reports people way too quickly and often, but ganging up on him on that forum wouldn't help. I'll jump in if necessary. --UWMSports (talk) 19:36, 29 May 2008 (UTC)


I don't know if you ever use it, but would you be willing to talk on AIM so I can express to you in a timely fashion why I am upset. Thank you for your consideration.--SportsMaster (talk) 19:38, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't really use it. Maybe I can create one later on when I get home from the office. --GoHuskies9904 (talk) 19:46, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
I really think it would be benifitial to talk in realtime. I should be available tonight. . --SportsMaster (talk) 23:48, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Feel free to join me here now. irc:// You do not need to download anything, and you use your wikipedia username. --SportsMaster (talk) 19:05, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Deletion from one's own talk page[edit]

It is permissible to remove remarks from one's own talk page. It's no kosher to edit/falsify them, but the presumption is that you've read it if you bothered to delete it. Is that what you're asking about? As to the other, it's called canvassing if the people solicited are fellow Wikipedians, and seeking of meatpuppets if you're trying to bring in your posse from outside. Either way, it is a no-no. --Orange Mike | Talk 01:25, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Yup, that's canvassing, and should be reported. --Orange Mike | Talk 02:45, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Concern about AfD nominations[edit]

Hey there GH. I'm still following up about the Wikiquette alert involving you and SportsMaster. I am going to warn SportsMaster about assuming good faith, as a few of the recent accusations he made against you are just nonsensical, and that's not cool.

At the same time, I have been going over your contribs, and I noticed a trend that concerned me. It is not this nonsense about alleged "stalking" of SportsMaster, but rather I am concerned about the high percentage of AfD nominations you have made that have resulted in a "Keep". By my count, in the last six months, at least half of the articles you have nominated have resulted in a "Keep," and although it's a little early to say, it looks like a couple more are headed for either a "Keep" or a "No consensus" (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Homer E. Woodling and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pioneer Conference). I very much appreciate your interest in tidying up the encyclopedia and your boldness, and don't get me wrong, at least four of the articles that you nominated for deletion were a very good call.

But at the same time, I would urge you once again to be a little more judicious about nominating articles for deletion. I would also reiterate my compromise proposal to resolve the Wikiquette alert, that you refrain from directly nominating for deletion articles created by SportsMaster. That doesn't mean his articles get a free pass, as if you see one that you are concerned about, you can always ask a third-party (me, for example ;D ) if they agree that it should be nominated for deletion. And that doesn't mean you have to stop the great work you have been doing tidying up -- I mean, believe me, there are tens of thousands of deletion-worthy articles not created by SportsMaster that are floating around out there ;).

Let me know what you think. I am sorry to see SM making false accusations against you, and I will warn him about that. But I think there is room for improvement on this side too. Cheers, and happy wiki-ing! --Jaysweet (talk) 14:11, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

I'll take this off Afd; but it would be polite to warn the creator of each page you set up for Afd with the appropraite tag. It's provided right on the Afd template ICYDK. §hep¡Talk to me! 22:37, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
Agreed about the ownership ordeal. But you also tagged everything in Category:Ohio high school sports conferences. These articles include creators: Frank12, Ohio614, Pitmanm3330, Ohiorailrocket, Greg the White Falcon, Daktronicsman and many others who may not even know of the discussion. Hope that's more clear. §hep¡Talk to me! 23:02, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
The Afd is noted in full on the WikiProject Ohio page. But it's still a courtesy to let someone know their article is up for deletion (which is what I'm in the process of doing. §hep¡Talk to me! 23:16, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
I hope the editors can be able to look at it froma neutral point of view. If each one were listed separately they would all be notified; so listed together they should still all be notified IMO. §hep¡Talk to me! 23:21, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

I've added a template to the Afd so voters not in the know know the policies. That should help? §hep¡Talk to me! 23:25, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

I requested a bot to send out the rest of the notifications. I'll see if that's allowed; I would say it verges on canvassing. But conacting all involved parties isn't. It's just a lot of people. §hep¡Talk to me! 23:29, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
Also, I'ved searched Afd's high and low and can't find an instance where a high school athletic conference was put through the process. This seems to be a first; though I may be missing something...§hep¡Talk to me! 23:32, 3 June 2008 (UTC)


That was a joke right? You know who User:Jimbo Wales is. Of course you do. Yep you know. At first I thought you were laughing at the name; hehe. :) §hep¡Talk to me! 21:29, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Continuation of discussion over notability of Ohio high school sports conferences[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because you recently participated in an AfD discussion regarding the notability of high school sports conferences in Ohio State. While the AfD has been closed as no consensus, the discussion is continuing here. You are invited to participate. Thank you. --Jaysweet (talk) 20:17, 10 June 2008 (UTC)


Will do, but they are working well at the moment. I'd be careful, well absolutely sure before re-listing. Davidwr has done a very nice job spearheading their effort. If they can get it done, that would be great for Wikipedia to have 40 articles greatly improved. --UWMSports (talk) 17:25, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

2011–12 Celtic F.C. season[edit]

Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to 2011–12 Celtic F.C. season. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. Dl2000 (talk) 23:51, 25 July 2011 (UTC)


We'll submit it for review. –BuickCenturyDriver 21:56, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
