Edit to Austin McCann[edit]

Morning Jellyman! I noticed you made an edit to the page Austin McCann at the start of December. I'm unclear as to exactly why the inclusion of the succession box is not appropriate. Is it because the player/club are perhaps not as noteworthy as others, or because this type of template is to be used primarily for, say, governmental positions and not sporting positions?

Thanks, Exxy (talk) 10:06, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the response and for providing the link to the discussion. Whilst I personally don't think it does any harm using succession boxes in this way, I appreciate that the consensus of users is that using them for sporting positions is problematic. I had added them to a few other pages but I'll remove them when I get a moment. Thanks again! Exxy (talk) 13:33, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Scottish Women's Premier League, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Airdrie. 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.

Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

Hi. I've noticed the good work you do on here. I was wondering if you'd be interested in contributing to this ambitious British Isles challenge to bringing about 10,000 improvements to the UK and Ireland. The drive is fuelled by regional contests every few months. We will get to Scotland in the new year sometime. If you'd be interested in chipping in with the articles you improve please add your name to the participants and start adding your entries to the big list. Diversity of input will make it much more interesting to peruse! Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:29, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! So it would be a good chance to win something for improving stubs on African sportspeople, including footballers, athletes, Olympians and Paralympians etc, particularly female ones, but also male. Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing a few expanded articles on African Paralympians, Olympians and committees etc, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:13, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 09:11, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve.

The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Quick thanks[edit]

Just a quick acknowledgement of your rollback of the 'spit the dummy' edits by our weegie IP user. Trying to get my stuff deleted because I disagreed with theirs (but tried to encourage a discussion as you did), not great. Crowsus (talk) 14:32, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Edit: Just noticed another 'speedy deletion' tag on a page I created William James Chrystal. It's from a different IP but those are the only edits ever from that IP so it doesn't take Poirot to work out what's going on. Could you have a look at it please? (I suppose you may also feel the subject is not notable although it seems OK to me).Crowsus (talk) 14:45, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks again jellyman, not sure if you're watching my talk so I'll put it here. I will send a quick message to the other editors involved in this wee spat, maybe they are being targeted for pettiness as well. Looks like a VPN is involved, any way round that? You can't really block a user that way...?Crowsus (talk) 16:37, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Tony Collins (footballer)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 4 March 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Tony Collins (footballer), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Tony Collins became the first black manager in the English Football League when he was appointed by Rochdale in 1960? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Tony Collins (footballer). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Tony Collins (footballer)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Can we get some input in resolving an edit dispute?[edit]

Hello Jellyman. I am hoping that you can lend some assistance. Me and user GiantSnowman need assistance in resolving an edit dispute concerning the kit section that was in the Nigerian national football team article. He removed it citing WP:NOTGALLERY. I disagree with his interpretation and I have shared my reasons on the talk page at WikiProject Football. We request the input of members of this project in order to resolve this issue. Your assistance would be appreciated if you have the time. Thanks! unak1978 16:31, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Half back[edit]

Hello. Don't think I agree with your change of redirect target at half back (association football). Midfielder#Wing half is half a line in the Wide midfielder section that doesn't really says what the wing half did and doesn't mention the central half-back position at all. You're obviously correct that it's a position, not a formation: the redirect used to target the centre-back section of defender, which at the time had enough historical content to give the reader an idea of the half-back positions. A couple of years ago, when the historical content was edited out, I changed it to point to the Pyramid formation, which does at least mention what half backs did.

It does bother me a little that an encyclopedia has more content on something called a "False 10" or "central winger", which I've never actually heard of, than it does on a position that was basic to football teams for decades: daresay the answer is I should stop moaning and write a decent half-back article... cheers, Struway2 (talk) 09:02, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Would linking to the last paragraph of Association football positions#Centre-back be an improvement? it mentions where the half-back line was, and contains a link to the pyramid formation. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 11:00, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Women in Red/The World Contest[edit]

Hi. This month The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There is over £3000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. Wikimedia UK is putting up £250 specifically for editors who produce the most quality new women bios for British women, with special consideration given to missing notable biographies from the Oxford Dictionary of Biography and Welsh Dictionary of Biography. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate independently this is also fine, but please add any articles created to the bottom of the main contest page even if not competing. Your participation in the contest and contributing articles on British women from your area or wherever would we much appreciated. Thanks.

Central Girls Football Academy[edit]

Hello Jellyman

the above page has been nominated for deletion

Central Girls Football Academy have recently gained promotion to the 2nd tier of women's football in Scotland. Many people follow them and they are doing great work getting young girls involved in the sport. Many people are interested in them here in scotland but there is not a lot of information available online. I think this article is of genuine help to Wikipedia.

the deletion conversation is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Central_Girls_Football_Academy

Is there any chance you could offer your support?

Thanks

You could do with clarifying that it was Derby County that became founder members of the League. I looked for ages in the reference before realising 'they' referred to the Rams and not to St Luke's.

Hello WOSO editors! A few initiatives have been started with an emphasis on making more WOSO links blue (similar to the work that WikiProject Women in Red does) and filling in the gaps within various league, team, and player, etc. articles.

If you're interested in collaborating with others to make more links blue, take a look at the initiatives listed in the box below. Sign up at the bottom of an initiative page and help grow the lists, add potential references, resources, and create the articles ... or create your own initiative.

Did you know ...

WP:GNG takes precedence over WP:NFOOTY (which only includes the players in 1 active women's league)? Often times there is enough media coverage that meets WP:GNG or other notability guidelines. For more information, see WP:WOSO#Notability and be sure to tag the new article talk page with: {{WP Women's sport|footy=yes}}

Current and upcoming seasons for top-division leagues

Have some new articles in mind or see some that need improvement? Add them to the Open Tasks.
