I think you should check this out... (Westius 04:04, 8 December 2005 (UTC))


G'day mate, noticed you've started work on articles like the Bob Skilton Medal. I'm getting basically no help on the many footy articles I've started, was wondering if you'd check out WikiProject AFL? Cheers, Rogerthat 10:27, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Just letting you know for stub categorising, with player-related articles, use {{afl-bio-stub}}. And you should categorise Schwatta under Category:North Melbourne Kangaroos players. See Category:VFL/AFL players for more details. Rogerthat 04:31, 5 January 2006 (UTC)


Hi mate, I've done some work on Category:Sydney Swans players and need to find a logo of the old South Melbourne Swans. Do you know where I can find one? Rogerthat 09:48, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Use of "they" and "it" wrt collective nouns like "Team"[edit]


You have a good reputation about understanding the correct use of English. I have a question for you. When referring to a sporting team, such as the Australian cricket team, should one say "they won the match" or "it won the match"? I think the correct use of English would be to say "it won the match" or perhaps "the team won the match". However, the use of "they" in this context is widespread on wikipedia. It might confuse the issue when someone talks of a team with a mascot or emblem, like the Waratahs. In this case, saying "they" seems to say each individual member of the team is a Waratah, whilst in actual fact the team is called "The Waratahs" - strictly speaking, each player is not a Waratah.

Anyway, thats my opinion, what is your's? See Talk:Australian cricket team

There is a backstage pass coming up to be followed by an editathon in the State Library of New South Wales on 23 November. This is the first time that an Australian cultural institution has opened its doors to us in this way and will be a special opportunity because the Library is providing: one of its best rooms; its expert curators (along with their expertise and their white gloves); a newly launched website (containing new resources); and of course, items from its collection (including rare and usually unavailable material) which we can look at, learn from, and use, to improve WP articles. For example, on the chosen topic (Australia and WWI), the Library holds many diaries and manuscripts from the period.

As you can see from the Library's project page, they have connected this editathon with their own work. They have already set out a wide range of resources to make things easier for us. Please sign up on the editathon project page if you can participate either online or in person with other Wikipedians. Hope to see you there! Lankiveil (speak to me) 12:24, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
