Vanilla Ninja[edit]

Thanks for your minor edits. I can see you have a minor interest in the article (your connection presumably Eurovision), so you might want to know that I plan to get it up to featured article and even front page standards. If you have any additions or can improve it, feel free to do so. Also, i'd appreciate it if you could visit Wikipedia:Peer review/Vanilla Ninja/archive1 and post some comments on what can be done to improve the article. Hedley 23:48, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Heh. Club Kung Fu was their best song so far, I think. As for Triinu, I think its about being comprehensive, and the top is a long way from there, and on long articles acts like a summary. I think mentioned her exact birthdate is needed for the reader's sake, as they won't think to look to the top if they want to know it. I don't think its doing any harm - on a longer article repeating things from the top is common. Hedley 00:07, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Discordian Calendar[edit]

As we are, of course, both Discordian Popes, shall we set the calendar schism in place by both making papal pronouncements, I that the calendar is Julian, you that it is Gregorian? Best wishes. Jess Cully 02:52, 5 August 2005 (UTC)

Consider it done. Doing some Google research, you seem to have less support out there - good luck in your quest. We've got 94.5 years to fight it out. DenisMoskowitz 14:36, 2005 August 5 (UTC)
I've added my pronouncement on my own site: [1] Let me know if you make a similar one outside of Wikipedia, and I'll link to it from the "Some may believe" sentence. DenisMoskowitz 17:53, 2005 August 5 (UTC)
Flax Flux? Bwa ha ha ha ha!!! I'm changing my link to you to that, instead of the alt.discordia one. (Oh, and my pronouncement is the 1st link on Google for St. Tib's Day at the moment. Not to be competitive, just happy that this discussion is so easy to find.) DenisMoskowitz 14:20, 2005 August 12 (UTC)

Leyton F.C.[edit]

Thanks for your good work on Leyton (I was the anon who started the article). I'll be at a few of their games this season (including the opener against Staines tomorrow) so I'll see if I can rustle up enough for sensible articles on Costas Sophocleous and Tony Choules. --OpenToppedBus - Talk to the driver 09:50, August 19, 2005 (UTC)

Here comes that man again[edit]

Hello Jess! Thanks for the greeting. I wish I could come to the Kirsty gathering this year, but it's not to be. I'm hoping perhaps in 2006; it would be great! Thanks for all of the work you've done as well on the article. I know we've both been chipping away and polishing - I hope we've done it justice! NickBurns 16:05, 23 August 2005 (UTC)

Hi again Jess, I see you did some cleanup work on the Kirsty article again. I had tried to summarize directly from the Guardian article on the Justice for Kirsty website. I've seen a few different amounts for the fine....I did know that the basic criminal fine ended up being under $30 American, which made me sick to my stomach....that's why I've been trying to encourage news outlets here to run the story and direct attention to what happened. Anyway, this is a long roundabout way to say thanks for following up on my edit. NickBurns 16:41, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

The 1992 Yugoslav Eurovision entry[edit]

I understand everything that you have said and I agree. However, all this does not matter because the offcial entry of Serbia and Montenegro was first in 2004. I think that the first entry of S&M must be in 2004 unless the official entry of S&M has been changed to 1992. Everything else and the opinions of the Eurovison fans and your and mine opinion and this and that does not matter because the official entry must be the one that counts and not our personal views. Awaiting feedback. Zec 23:04, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Norwich City and MK Dons[edit]

At the time I wrote that, NC had just been relegated and the season had just begun! Who expected a decline and fall nearly as comprehensive as MKD's? I blame all those Delia Smith pork pies :) --Concrete Cowboy 19:41, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Eurovision[edit]

Hello, mate, I see that you are interested in Eurovision. Would you like to be involved in connecting with more eurovision wikipedians to do up the eurovision pages in a more coherent manner? I have come across the Eurovision wikiproject page, which seems to have been dormant for over two years. It may be an idea to have a look there and see how we could improve the eurovision coverage. I have done up the Congratulations (Eurovision) page so far and put notes about it on the pages of those who performed there. Best regards from Australia, Blnguyen 23:49, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

Hi. I have submitted the main Eurovision article for Peer Review, hoping to get it up to Featured standard. If you have any comments and contributions, please let me know. Thanks. EuroSong talk 15:24, 16 July 2006 (UTC)


Jimmy Saville[edit]

You know perfectly well that JS was not a contestant - he made a brief guest appearance. You are also wrong in your edit about the 100th HM. Gaetano was a HM, regardless of whether he could win or not and if you read the discussion you will see it was fully discussed when Michael entered the house leaky_caldron 09:43, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Re. Big Brother UK 7 housemates[edit]

Yes I understand your point, but as Michael is first alphabetically he should be further down the list - and that's the order they were announced. It's just tough he is first. --Alex talk here 15:13, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Actually it's not- I was the one who re-ordered them for clarity of who was still in the house. --Alex talk here 15:17, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Here's the link if you're interested - note the edit summary on the history. [2] --Alex talk here 15:21, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

If you want to do make a poll, it's up to you. Thanks. --Alex talk here 15:31, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

UFWC[edit]

As you have been a major contributor, I was wondering what you think of what I've been doing at List of winners of Unofficial Football World Championships. Kevin McE 13:02, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Yugoslavia in Eurovision[edit]

Hi Jess,

Yes you're quite right: the entries from Yugoslavia were chosen in nation-wide selections, and no-one said "Right - this year we'll have someone from Slovenia". However, that is not what I ever meant to imply in the first place :)

The reason I mentioned the "constituent states" is to make clear that the "Yugolsavia" in question is the one which comprised those states - as opposed to the "Yugoslavia" which has been synonymous with Serbia in more recent times.

I do see your point, though: perhaps what I wrote is not clear, since you obviously interpreted it differently than as intended. I shall think about the wording. Thanks. EuroSong talk 15:49, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

In case you didn't already know, I'm just informing you that the main article will be featured on the front page on Saturday 12th May. Therefore any assistance keeping a watchful eye on it would be appreciated: it's sure to attract many contributions from people who think they're being helpful by adding non-encyclopædic snippets. Of course, having said that, some edits might actually improve it ;) EuroSong talk 00:39, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

SV Austria Salzburg[edit]

Why did you disimprove the date of foundation of the club in the article? In Germany there is a hard but right saw: "Shut up, if you don't know the first thing." Your edit summary (they formed the new club early in '06 after the failure of their attempt to merge with the Police club) isn't right, so I asked my, why did you disimprove things? PälzerBu 21:11, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Which registration date? PälzerBu 13:58, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
No, they became member of the Salzburg FA in february PälzerBu 20:09, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Blackadder[edit]

I know it's a deliberate absurdity included for comic effect, quite a funny one too. That's why I submit that it's perhaps not good fodder for a list of historical anomalies. Orpheus 01:04, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Lady Anne Stanley[edit]

It really does not matter to me. My goal was the clean up the article because it was a mess. What you put in is fine, it just needed some sort of citation because people have been arguing as to who is the rightful heir to the British throne for years. Virgosky 16:51, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Guilford Dudley[edit]

Somehow I misread what you'd done with the article and reverted the wrong thing. Sorry! Deb 19:29, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Kate/Bob[edit]

Hi there. Could you include the episode guide as a reference for Bob in Blackadder 4 being "really a girl called Kate"? It's the kind of statement that's likely to be removed as speculation again otherwise. Cheers, Miremare 22:59, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

No offence taken - I'm sure she was called Kate as well! I wondered if you were referring to the Virgin Books Blackadder programme guide, but obviously not unless it was an online version? Thanks anyway. Miremare 23:14, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Rachel McAdams' birthday[edit]

Your source appears reliable. More than one other reliable source gives her birthday as October 7. When this happens on Wikipedia, proper procedure is to discuss on the talk page to reach consensus before reverting. Thank you. Ward3001 (talk) 20:17, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Michael Abney-Hastings, 14th Earl of Loudoun[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Michael Abney-Hastings, 14th Earl of Loudoun, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Sami Muduroglu[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Sami Muduroglu 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 blatant 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.

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 this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

FAR notice for Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

I have nominated Eurovision Song Contest for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria.

Hello,

Please note that there have been some changes to operations surrounding Eurovision articles, these being that:

  • Template names have now been modernised and/or megred into super-templates, for example Countries in the Eurovision Song Contest has now been merged into Template:Eurovision Song Contest making it even easier to find everything under one template. If you are planning to create a new template, please keep the standardised titles in mind. Other templates have been modernised and a full list of them can be found here.
  • The Eurovision Song Contest and Junior Eurovision Song Contest articles have now been standardised to keep a consitancy throughout the project and to the genral reader too. Skeleton article drafts can be found for Eurovision Song Contest by Year and Junior Eurovision Song Contest by Year.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 12:54, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject Eurovision: Important Announcement[edit]

WikiProject Eurovision
Important Announcement
Wiki Eurovision Heart (Infobox).svg


Dear Project Member

Following a project community discussion, which was raised over the use of English translation columns on annual contest articles, and advice from the lead coordinator of The Guild of Copy Editors, who are extremely knowledgeable in regards to all editing practises and manual of style policies. A consensus decision has been reached to fully remove ALL English translations, as such content falls under the prohibition on original research, even if it seems helpful to the reader. This is because we have now to assume that every reader has access to automated translation tools that can always give them a sense of the meaning of the title in their native language; it is not Wikipedia's job to provide those tools for the reader. Which therefore means we are no longer to include an English translation column, nor are we to provide translation by any other means on contest articles.

Such information is currently in the process of being removed, and a new table formatting and layout style is being rolled out across all articles. Please view the new guidance on table layout at Wikipedia:WikiProject Eurovision/Format and Guides#Article layout. An example of the new table layout style can also be access via the collapsed section within this message. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of Rola Cola[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Rola Cola has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No sourcing, nor any indication of its notability

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Tavix (talk) 22:51, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Women's Football / Soccer Task Force News: August 2017


Should the women's football task force become WikiProject: WOSO?

Sam Kerr playing against USWNT 2012.jpg

According to an op-ed in the recent Signpost, some editors think task forces and subgroups are dying in 2017.

What do you think about forming our own WikiProject separate from WP:FOOTY? There's an on-going discussion of the potential pros and cons on the task force talk page. Input is welcome.

Recent developments

New initiatives have been created for:

  • FA WSL (England's top-division league)
  • NCAA (American university teams, conferences, etc.)
  • W-League (Australia's top-division league)
Ongoing tournaments
Current and upcoming seasons for top-division leagues
Did you know?

While WP:FPL lists only two women's top-division leagues as notable due to its "fully professional" criteria, did you know you can create an article on any player in any league as long as the references meet WP:GNG guidelines? Make sure to tag the new article talk page with: {{WP Women's sport|footy=yes}}.

Have some new articles in mind or see some that need improvement? Add them to the Open Tasks page if you'd like and other editors may be able to help. Need tips, assistance, or resources from other WOSO editors? Leave a message on the task force talk page.

Thank you for your continued contributions to articles related to women's football / soccer (WOSO)!
