List of Unofficial Presidents of the Philippines

Could you explain to me the viability of this article? I hope that you agree that it shouldn't exist. Therequiembellishere (talk) 05:29, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Don't really care if that continues to exist anyway... –HTD 07:51, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Can you help with the Nate James page I just created?

Hello HTD- You are the foremost authority on Philippine basketball, so I thought I'd ask if you might be able to help with a page I just created for Nate James. His Eurobasket.com profile lists him as having played for Santa Lucia Realty (Philippines-PBA) in 2003, but no other info. Do you know if he played regular season games for them and if so could you add it to his infobox? Thanks for any help you can give! Rikster2 (talk) 00:45, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Heh. I'm not the foremost authority, I just get info from more reliable authorities and dump them here (LOL). A quick Google News search didn't find anything, so I'd look for individual news articles later if he indeed played some games here. –HTD 03:43, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

FIBA

Hello. There is a collission inside the same source. FIBA gives this list [1] and in older files FIBA gave this list [2]. The latter one is older attribution. New FIBA's pages attribute medals separately, per historical country. I prefer this newer [3] because it is more precise and it makes no controversy. Do you agree with me? Pantagana (talk) 20:56, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

I'd accept this since it's newer. –HTD 03:51, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

International basketball research

I have started articles for Martell Bailey and David Bailey (basketball). I intend to nominate them at WP:DYK meaning that some time in the next few weeks they should appear on the main page. Before that happens I am hoping to fill in a lot more information. Can you help me fill in their professional careers. I have seen both names mentioned at eurobasket.com and David's name is in the following articles: Halifax Rainmen, Tartu Ülikool/Rock and Buffalo Sharks.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 18:48, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

The articles are pretty extensive already. If you're gunning for DYK this will surely pass as long as it doesn't fail the copyvio test. As for careers outside the U.S. I'd ask the people at WP:BASKETBALL they can help. –HTD 18:51, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
I am aware that they will pass DYK. I just thought that there was a better chance to get errors corrected if I add things before they go to the main page. Will ask at BB.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 18:56, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
I'll see if I can find something before it goes up. DYK is slow these days so articles can be improved further while waiting. –HTD 18:57, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I also created Kit Mueller recently and don't know how to find his professional career.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 19:04, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

The name

Hello, Howard. Here you wrote " I don't think the team was called "FR Yugoslavia" at that time". That was in 1996. See article Serbia and Montenegro. "Following the breakup of Yugoslavia, it was established in 1992 as a federation called the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. In 2003, it was reconstituted as a political union called the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro. FRY aspired to to be a sole legal successor of SFR Yugoslavia, but those claims were opposed by other former republics. he UN also denied its request to automatically continue the membership of the former state. After the overthrow of Slobodan Milošević, the country rescinded those aspirations and accepted the opinion of Badinter Arbitration Committee about shared succession. From 1992 to 2000, some countries, including the USA, referred to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia as "Serbia and Montenegro". So in 1996 in Olympics they were FR Yugoslavia, not "Yugoslavia". Pantagana (talk) 14:18, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

In those days, they're called simply as "Yugoslavia" but with the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia flag and not the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. –HTD 14:20, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
See these FIBA, and interestingly, Sports-Reference, uses "Serbia and Montenegro". The official Olympics website uses simply "Yugoslavia".–HTD 14:46, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of San Sebastian College–Recoletos de Cavite

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on San Sebastian College–Recoletos de Cavite requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. GabrielF (talk) 03:51, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Ooohhh... mr. tough guy now... prepared to go the cops... lol Then go if you must! Fan made art shouldn't be in the article! Banana Fingers (talk) 15:21, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Fan-made art featured on TV broadcasts and apparel. Sounds legit to me. –HTD 15:22, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Fan made art nonetheless! It's therefore not a surprise its being used on apparel... unbranded may I add! Not a surprise its also being used on TV. So what are you gonna do now? Upload this? which is also featured on apparel such as this.... or this logo, which is pretty much the same as logo on a t-shirt here. Upload this? this? I could go on! The same could be said for other countries as well. Banana Fingers (talk) 15:43, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Notable nonetheless, I'd say. Your first example is rather useless as the logo is already depicted; the rest aren't notable; only the cited fan art made it to TV broadcasts. There's another logo, the first Azkals logo that might be notable, but it's been superseded by the logo you're censoring. Remember, "azkals" is also "fan made" and we all know what happened when you insisted on leaving it out. –HTD 15:47, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
"I'd say". Hah! You're implying you yourself aren't even sure! No s**t "azkals" is fan made. A lot of nicknames for various national teams, club teams, pub teams, or whatever else came from the fans/supporters! So what? What does that have to do with anything?! Fan made art is fan made art. Simple as. End of! Like I said, go to WP:ARBCOM if you must! I'll even layout a red carpet for you! I'm removing it! Banana Fingers (talk) 15:55, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
I'd suggest bringing the image to WP:IFD, let it remain in the article, then let the discussion run through. Tons of fan arts are made, but really, really few make it to TV broadcasts. Heck, that fan art is even more pervasive than the PFF logo! –HTD 16:00, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Ya, you're right, all these random fan made art are more pervasive than the PFF logo. But that's because people profusely call the Philippines national team "azkals", "Philippine azkals", "PHL azkals" and so on. I've even seen news articles where they refer to the team as "Philippine national azkals"! WTF is that really?!? Therefore instead of using the PFF logo they use a logo which goes with there obsession for the name "azkals". However, it doesn't give any weight to the argument that this fan made art should remain in the article. Banana Fingers (talk) 16:10, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Believe me, I'm one of those people who'd want to get rid of the "Philippine Azkals" name. Either "Philippines" or "Azkals" would've been enough. As for pervasiveness, yes, it does give weight, heck a ton. If you're really into its removal, nominate it at WP:IFD, let it stay on the article (with the silly tag on it) while the discussion is going, then let it run it course. If it's deleted from the Wikipedia, then it's a lot easier in removing it since there's nothing to add. –HTD 16:13, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
BTW, you're on your third reversion already. Revert one more and you might be blocked. (Disclosure: I'm still on my second reversion.) –HTD 16:15, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
