Jack Green etal[edit]

Yes I see what you mean, sorry. I refer to Jack Green (1905-1960), footballer who played for Carlton and Hawthorn. Ancestry.com actually show him as John Joseph Patrick "Jack" Green. See also www.melbunifootball.com/Personalities.pdf on page 8 Cheers PS I have more on his school life to add once you work out what title you want to use. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Henry Sowerberry (talkcontribs) 01:01, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I'd suggest keeping the article title as Jack Green (footballer born 1905) if that's what you mean, "Jack Green" seems to be the most commonly used name in references.(WP:COMMONNAME). I've tidied the article up a bit with some citations, it would be great if you could expand it. Cheers Jevansen (talk) 08:30, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Ken Seymour has been nominated for Did You Know[edit]

Jack Condon (footballer)[edit]

I noticed you put him under living people-do we have any sources of him being still alive? (Well some people put living people when the person was born in 1910 because there is no DOD and other times I've seen them put year of death missing when it is possible they are alive like being born in 1940!) Wgolf (talk) 23:42, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi. No source, just can't be sure he is deceased. I've changed it to "possibly living people", just did the maths and that would seem more appropriate. Thanks. Jevansen (talk) 23:47, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Please take a look at the article Let's Dance 2015. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 16:41, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bill Maxwell, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Passchendaele (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Bots[edit]


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

AWB Script[edit]

Hi,
I see that you have imported the AWB Script. I have a question about it and the script author seems to be inactive here since January, so I try with you Face-wink.svg
In the « Skip » tab, when I use the option « When page contains: » simultaneously with « When page doesn't contain: », the script skip every pages when I start it. Do you have an idea of the problem ? Do there is a way to use simultaneously these options ? If you don't have a clue of what I'm talking about, do you know someone who can help me ?
Thank you very much ! Simon Villeneuve (talk) 23:51, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Simon. I had the same problem, which seems to be resolved if you tick Regular Expression. That got it working for me. Jevansen (talk) 09:44, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Thank you ! I tried it before, but I think that I missed to write it correctly (with all these "\" before "special" caracters).
Nice day to you ! Simon Villeneuve (talk) 12:24, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Hi !
Sorry to bother you again, but I have another problem and maybe you can help me.
In « Save automatically » mode, every time I click on the red « Stop » tab, the last page charged by the script is completely erased (whitened, blanchie). Did you know this problem ? Do you know who to avoid that ?
Thank you ! Simon Villeneuve (talk) 11:31, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Hi Simon. I'm not aware of any way of stopping that from happening I'm afraid. Jevansen (talk) 09:35, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
I know 2 ways : When my computer go on sleep mode and when someone write a message on my bot talkpage.
Do you know someone who know more about this ? Simon Villeneuve (talk) 00:14, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Request for merge[edit]

Hello Jevansen, I see that you have merged the page List of Twenty20 International cricket matches played by Nepal into List of Twenty20 International matches played by Nepal. Would you please consider doing the same to the List of Twenty20 cricket matches played by Nepal into List of Twenty20 matches played by Nepal. It also contains the merge tag. Cricshady (talk) 02:40, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Hello again, The content of the page List of Twenty20 cricket matches played by Nepal has been restored by a user. It's not about which page was created first but about what is the general accepted and used trend in naming the Wikipedia articles. But the user seem to ignore it. Please check out the talk page of this article. It might give you better perspective about what needs to be done. Thank you, Cricshady (talk) 07:08, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Hi Cricshady. I performed the previous merges per WP:BOLD to try and rectify what is a ridiculous situation where we have two editors making identical edits to identical lists, I just picked the earliest created list for the one to be merged into and later chose the one you requested here for naming consistency. What needs to be done, seeing as this has been contested, is you need to make another merge proposal like that previously attempted. If you look through the lists and those in the subcategories at Category:Twenty20 cricket lists we have a mixture of "Twenty20" and "Twenty20 cricket" being used. So there is no accepted trend, yes the article is called Twenty20 but most existing lists do use "Twenty20 cricket". As the last merge proposal didn't attract any attention I'd suggest posting a neutral notice at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cricket notifying people that a discussion is taking place.

Demonwiki links[edit]

Thanks for that. I'd been meaning to do something about it but I've never got the hang of AWB. Jenks24 (talk) 07:58, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Only 1800 odd more to go! The-Pope (talk) 03:26, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Fun times ahead. Any external link can be replaced with that AustralianFootball template you created but what's the preference when it comes to citations? Is it best to preserve an archive link? Jevansen (talk) 06:53, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
If it's to one of the articles, last time I checked they didn't seem to have been all transferred over, so I'd think that an archive link will be needed. If it's to a player's page, then most of the text seems to have been migrated. You could also contact Gigz to ask about any missing articles. The-Pope (talk) 03:45, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

You seem to be familiar judging by your edit history with the AFL siren controversy. User Jenks24 seems to have something against the STJFL addition to other incidents and is using "block evasion" as an excuse. It seems that we need an experienced editor to look into this and hopefully you can see how important and notable the incident is and try to retain it.

brownlow wada information[edit]

Hi can you clarify what is wrong with my post?

159.21.131.7 (talk) 02:18, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Sure. Watson is not listed with an asterisk (or any other symbol you want to come up with) to signify doubt over his Brownlow win in any reliable sources. The AFL does not do so and have made no such announcement over the eligibility of his Brownlow win.[1]. Your first source is speculation over what could happen and the second does not even mention the Brownlow. Using an asterisk against his name is original research and defamatory (see also our policy on biographies of living persons). It is also defamatory to make a statement in the article that his win is pending investigation unless you have significant sourcing to back that up.

Thanks[edit]

@Jevansen, Jenks24, and The-Pope: Just wanted to say a quick thanks to you blokes for the work you've done making updates/error fixes/moves/disambiguations/adding categories on the pages I've made recently, as well as fixing links I've missed on the club player lists. Thanks also for the assistance with the inevitable notability/reference etc issues that people seem to enjoy throwing at me! Cheers! Terlob (talk) 13:05, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

and the thanks are strongly reciprocated back to you. I'm not sure if you guys are all aware of what's been happening at the cricket project, where a few single game first class cricketers have been deleted, and the whole WP:CRIN vs WP:GNG discussion is ongoing, but I hope it never spreads to any old single game VFL players. Happy new year to Jevansen, Terlob, Jenks and any other talk page stalkers who read this. Cheers, The-Pope (talk) 18:06, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Likewise, the creation is the bulk of the work. Hope you all had a great holidays, Jenks24 (talk) 03:03, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Alan Thomson[edit]

Hi Jevansen. I see you create and edit articles on both cricket and Australian rules football. I was wondering if you could help identify if the following biographies are one and the same person:

A note was placed on the former's talkpage that brought it to my attention. Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 13:25, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Same guy, looks like a merge is in order. And perhaps a rename to something like "(sportsman)". Jenks24 (talk) 16:14, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
On second though, "(sportsman)" would clash with Alan Thomson (cricketer), which even rules out "(Australian sportsman)". Hmmm. Jenks24 (talk) 16:24, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Could we do Alan Thomson (sportsman, born 1899)? (has been used before, see Frank Mitchell). Jevansen (talk) 21:49, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks - makes sense to me. I'll do that now. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 08:01, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for doing the merge. I like the new title, too. Jenks24 (talk) 10:41, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

On a similar topic, Charles McGrath and Dave McGrath (footballer, born 1872) are almost certainly the same person but I can't find a source to explicitly make the connection. Any chance you can, Jevansen? I notice you added Category:South Ballarat Football Club players to Charles' article. Jenks24 (talk) 10:41, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

All I can find are references which indicate that Fitzroy's other Dave McGrath, David G. McGrath, is the son of the politician (and also from the South Ballarat Football Club). That at least points to some affinity between the family and both clubs, but I can't get anything concrete to connect the politician to the 1900 Fitzroy player.
