cup game info bars

just so you know i'm not doing cup games in the players info bar.Gobbleswoggler (talk) 17:17, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Bolding players

I just noticed (talk · contribs), who has been bolding the names of internationals in the current squad sections of articles about football clubs. He is the Idon'tknowhowmanyieth to do this. Have you got any idea where they're coming from? I find it hard to believe that so many users are making exactly the same edits independent of each other. Aecis·(away) talk 23:37, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

No idea. Every couple of months this turns up again. *sigh* --Jaellee (talk) 23:41, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
I think I'll raise it at WT:FOOTY, maybe someone there has seen this on a forum or something like that. Aecis·(away) talk 23:45, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Language question

Hi there JAELLEE, VASCO here,

I have one question for you, wiki-fellow? Could you please tell me why do sometimes you translate references titles to German, although it is an English article? I always thought it should be written in English, then add the correspondent language template.

Could you please tell me your views on this, and what usually is the standard procedure so i won't make such mistakes again? Thank you very much in advance.

From Portugal, Tschuss,

VASCO AMARAL - --NothingButAGoodNothing (talk) 15:02, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Could you please give me an example when I did this? At the moment I can't remember such a thing. --Jaellee (talk) 17:16, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I remember. I always thought that as title the "real" title of the online item should be used in whatever language it is an then the corresponding language should be added (I've seen it that way in several articles). But I must admit that I can't point to a guideline page where this is clarified. Maybe you should ask this at WP:FOOTY. --Jaellee (talk) 17:38, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Grüss dich JAELLEE, VASCO here,

As you suggested, i brought this matter to WPFOOTY; here are some conclusions ( Keep up the wiki-faith,

Marfan Syndrome Article Graffiti Attacks

I have reviewed the history of changes on the Marfan Syndrome article over the past few weeks and have noticed an occasional graffito is written into the article. The vandals perpetrating these attacks usually do it without logging in, thus leaving no contributor trace. I recommend that whenever any of the responsibly acting contributors log in to do some more editing, first look at the most recent edit. If it is an anonymous edit, just revert the article to the previous edit before doing more edits. Leeirons 13:29, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Considering how old the previous comment is, I am surprised that Marfan Syndrome is still under attack by vandals. Anyway, thanks for properly cleaning up the vandalism the way I should have in the first place. James McBride (talk) 19:00, 24 April 2009 (UTC)


These information are true. Magath really trained his players such, and I know it as I leave 3 years in Germany. Why I am not allowed to add true information?--BubbleBabis (talk) 11:03, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Magath is a trainer, and can have strict training methods without being strict. Although, Magath isn't the only trainer with this methods. See for example the Co Adriaanse article.--BubbleBabis (talk) 11:54, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Flags in infoboxes

WP:MOSFLAG#Use of flags for sportspeople states "Flags should never indicate the player's nationality in a non-sporting sense; flags should only indicate the sportsperson's national squad/team or sporting nationality.". I am not "indicating nationality in a non-sporting sense", I'm changing __national team__ references to the Fb template. I'm not adding flags to the county of birth, I'm not adding flags to club history (what Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Archive 20#Flags in club infoboxes is about). So I think I'm not doing anything any guide tells me not to do. Geregen2 (talk) 19:04, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

And as that discussion said, it seemed alright in the national team section. I agree that the place of birth / clubs sections look messy with the flags, but in the national team section it doesn't seem excessive. I won't be adding any new ones anyway in the near future. Geregen2 (talk) 20:00, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Edin Dzeko

Who do you keep insisting that it should say SFR Yugoslavia?

In 1986, Dzeko was born in Sarajevo in the Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina which was a socialist republic within the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
SFRJ Yugoslavia consisted of 6 constituent socialist republics one of them being the Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
So you should get more informed before you say things like there was no Bosnia and Bosnia didn't exist back then.
Also note in all offical documents everyone that was born in the Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina it says that they were born in Bosnia and Herzegovina and not SFR Yugoslavia.
You should try to get a compromise with the other guy like it should say for example born in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina at the time SFR Yugoslavia or born in Sarajevo, SFR Yugoslavia today Bosnia and Herzegovina or simply born in Sarajevo without reference to any country.
Zec 22:09, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Edin Dzeko, Vedad Ibisevic, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Your own reference clearly proves my point as you say "should". Well, should is not DOES and clearly no one on that page finds it disturbing that it says California instead of Mexico if you look at the the log of changes. Now, Zec has repeated what I posted on the respective pages as a comment to the change so you and the the other two "editors" need to clearly back off and leave the correct, diplomatic, UN recognized, and/or otherwise proper information in it's place. Bosnia and Herzegovina is the country of birth for both of these players and that's what's indicated on their personal valid/current document's. You can keep the threats at bay as the information I'm providing as the rest of the "editor's" are is correct.

Talk:Edin Džeko

Any further discussion should be held at Talk:Edin_Džeko#Country_of_birth. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 06:05, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

And at Talk:Vedad_Ibišević#Country_of_Birth for him. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 06:08, 20 April 2009 (UTC)


Instead of arguing the same arguments over and over at the user talk pages, simple start a discussion for each individual on the talk page when the warring starts (see Talk:Martin Reim). Most of the ardent arguers will never come there and you can have them blocked for refusal to discuss. For the rest, neutral editors are going to want to follow policy and multiple users telling them they are wrong can be effective. If, for example, Talk:Edin Džeko continues the way it has, conduct a straw poll which should clarify consensus. RFCs, etc., work much better when talk pages are used. You're lucky that it doesn't look like serious fights have been breaking out but better to have prior discussions to point to when the next round of guys come around. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 03:19, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Moved from User page ((User Barent)

Hello. I just found a message apparently for me dating from April. I'm not sure how to reply to it (this is my first experience with a message on Wikipedia), so I'm trying this. If it's a wrong way to reply, my apologies. Your (?) message said:

"Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Franck Ribéry, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you. --Jaellee (talk) 22:08, 19 April 2009"

I'd never even heard of Franck Ribéry, and I certainly didn't edit his page. I'm a university professor and to the best of my knowledge, the few edits I make are constructive. As far as I know, the few other people who occasionally have used my computer don't follow soccer. There's some mistake.

Greetings from Toronto, in any event.

Excuse me!

I think you're missing the plot. I have two reasons why I edited the Róbert Vittek article. One, Róbert Vittek's date and place of birth, nationality and playing position is already on the top and two, he isn't playing for Sivasspor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:13, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

re: Your Message

Hi Jaellee, I've left a response to your message on my talk page -- Marek.69 talk 08:11, 22 July 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for this. I obviously hadn't read the bit in bold. Duh! --John (talk) 04:59, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome. --Jaellee (talk) 20:55, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

IP Editor complaint continues to commit vandalism. [1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:42, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Filippo Inzaghi

Yes but look at Giggs. He's got something similar on his page for his mention on The SImpsons. Not everyone likes The Simpsons do they? So really, it doesn't matter, and as i said before, it is giving a off-field touch to the page. (User:Stt13) (talk) 14:35, 3 September 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stt13 (talkcontribs)

I've asked for other opinions about this on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football. --Jaellee (talk) 21:26, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Ok fair enough I concede. I will stop reverting your edits. Thanks for the information. Will come in handy for me in the future and I hope there are no hard feelings. Stt13 (talk) 09:58, 4 September 2009 (UTC) Stt13 (talk 19:28, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Sofianchahedtunisia.jpg

Hi, in regards to the photo Sofianchahedtunisia.jpg - I would ask of you to extend the removal date of this picture you have put a notice on until i have an answer from the creator of this image, i have sent him an email to provide me proof of the fact that i have permission to use it for wikipedia, im hoping to receive an answer by email within the next 3 days.

Thanks so much for your help (and would you mind responding on my user page?)

Dr Brian May

Why have you removed Brian May's title? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:51, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

OK, no problem - thought it might be more that his doctorate may not have been recognised in a German sense or similar (apologies if this is not your background, but a quick look of your userpage suggest otherwise. (talk)


Hi there JAELLEE, VASCO from Portugal here,

I am leaving you this message because i saw you warned a vandal from Norway which has been removing stuff in football players' infoboxes. See all the details here (

Unfortunately, user/admin Ed Johnston says he has not been warned enough times and that his edits do not look like vandalism. Oh well, can't win everytime, don't worry i'll continue to revert his actions when/if they are bad.

Have a nice weekend, good work,
