December 2011[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Leo Núñez a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. – Muboshgu (talk) 16:58, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

There was a previous discussion to move the page at Talk:Leo Núñez#Requested move, but there was no consensus. If you would like to initiate another request and can demonstrate that WP:COMMONNAME is now met, please follow instructions at Wikipedia:Requested moves.—Bagumba (talk) 17:44, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Tommy Rees (rugby)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Tommy Rees (rugby), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Tommy Rees. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 14:08, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Your contributed article, Tommy Rees (rugby)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, Tommy Rees (rugby). First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as yourself. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Tommy Rees (rugby footballer). Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Tommy Rees - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Filing Flunky (talk) 14:19, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Kyle Cofield[edit]

The article Kyle Cofield has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non notable baseball player

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles 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 article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Are you serious?[edit]

Are you seriously not going to update the whole Dave Sappelt article? Do you not realize by not updating the whole article you are making it confusing for readers with the inconsistency in the article. If a person didn't here about his release and visit the article they are going to see that it says he is a free agent in the infobox, but in the intro it says he still plays with the Cubs. Well which one is it? Readers shouldn't have to guess which one is correct. You are very close to disruptive editing here --Yankees10 16:58, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Glenn Davis Army Award, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page San Clemente High School (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.

2013 College Cup[edit]

Hey, just want to thank you for updating the last three quarterfinal matches on 2013 NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship. I'm pretty gutted that Washington lost to New Mexico, I thought they were gonna make it. Just a small note though, next time you add a match report, add the link to the article discussing the match itself instead of the link to the stat sheet because stat sheet's are linked in the article and also the article provides more detail. Hopefully I made sense. Other than that, you did a good job. – Michael (talk) 02:53, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Your edits are pretty much vandalism. Is Greg Childs (American football) a free agent or a member of the Argonauts. I am not going to be around forever to fix the articles that you give a two sided perspective to. I know you are reading this and aren't going to reply but still. You probably have a lot of transactions to do but someone isn't going to fix them all. I don't understand why you can't chang the lead at least, you can't copy/paste "Toronto Argonauts" a third time over "free agent". WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 15:49, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

It's his/her schtick. He/she will update the infobox and templates and leave the rest of the article un-updated, causing mass confusion. In other words the easy work that takes no effort. I've asked him/her numerous times not to do it, but he/she just doesn't listen.--Yankees10 17:32, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

October 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Notre Dame–USC football rivalry shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
Please talk about it on the talk page. No sense in reverting. Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 12:23, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Copy-paste move of Talk:Cyril Richardson (American football)[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Talk:Cyril Richardson (American football) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Talk:Cyril Richardson. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. —BarrelProof (talk) 20:06, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Tyrus Thompson[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Tyrus Thompson requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content or organised event, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. AusLondonder (talk) 16:02, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

About Cedric Thompson[edit]

Hi Joeykai,
As far as I can see, the Big Ten college footballer Cedric Thompson is the same Cedric Thompson who has not yet played a game for the Dolphins. I can only scant mentions of Thompson in the usual college football reliable websites. I can't find any mentions in reliable sources that Thompson was other than a pick in the draft. Am I missing something here?

T status in the World Cup[edit]

The template documentation does not say they have to be one of the top four third-place teams to get the T status; it says they get the status if they can finish no worse than third in the group. If they lock down a top-four third-place slot, then their status would change to A. —C.Fred (talk) 04:39, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

C.Fred, "Qualified, but not yet to the particular phase indicated." makes no sense because there is only one phase to advance to and Canada hasn't qualified to the knockout phase. "Clinched at least 3rd place, but not assured to advance." is much more clear.Joeykai (talk) 04:42, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
I agree that it's awkward wording, but if you look at the template documentation, that's precisely the status that the T status is intended to cover. —C.Fred (talk) 04:43, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
C.Fred, I know that but its still wrong.Joeykai (talk) 04:44, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

June 2015[edit]

Information icon Please don't change the format of dates, as you did to Fabian Johnson. As a general rule, if an article has evolved using predominantly one format, the dates should be left in the format they were originally written in, unless there are reasons for changing it based on strong national ties to the topic. Please also note that Wikipedia does not use ordinal suffixes (e.g., st, nd, th), articles, or leading zeros on dates.

For more information about how dates should be written on Wikipedia, please see this page.

If you have any questions about this, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Enjoy your time on Wikipedia. Thank you. Walter Görlitz (talk) 05:44, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Fabian Johnson. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

July 2015[edit]

Information icon Before adding a category to an article, as you did to Howie Dorough, please make sure that the subject of the article really belongs in the category that you specified according to Wikipedia's categorization guidelines. Categories must also be supported by the article's verifiable content. Categories may be removed if they are deemed incorrect for the subject matter.

That said, thank you for [4]. This I do appreciate. Resolute 01:00, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to use disruptive, inappropriate or hard-to-read formatting, as you did at Kevin O'Leary, you may be blocked from editing. There is a Wikipedia Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Dl2000 (talk) 02:57, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

It's been a few years and you did it again. The subject has no strong national ties to either US civil dates (MDY) or "international" dates (DMY) so we rely on using the data first established. It's bet not to change arbitrarily, and and to explaining why when doing so. Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:12, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

He's Brazilian and Brazil uses dmy. I had thought that was a strong national tie. Joeykai (talk) 22:20, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Brazil may use dmy, MOS:TIES primarily addresses English-speaking nation and so we need to rely on DATERET. However, if you gain consensus to go against DATERET (and If I'm watching the article, you would have my support for non-North American subjects), such a change is appropriate. Alternately, explain that you believe that TIES should be applied, explain that in the edit summary. Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:36, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi there from Portugal Joey,

it was not exactly an accusation that I made, but I was wrong the same. Please accept my renewed apologies regarding this (see here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Football#2013_FIFA_U-20_World_Cup_players), I also left an explanatory note therein.

  • I know you are not going to reply to me, but that's OK, don't know why but that's fine. But please, before you revert me again in Grégory Arnolin, ask WP:FOOTY to see if I'm lying (I am not, I only want to help out), intros are to be kept simple, Arnolin's intro should read "...is a French footballer..." or "...is a footballer", since he plays for Martinique only from time to time. Never French-Martiniquais, please.

Why is French-Martiniquais too complicated? It is simple enough and is more accurate. Joeykai (talk) 15:23, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, sincerely. About your doubt, I am not saying your logic is not there, I am just stating the WP rules. I did like you in the past to be honest when players had double nationality, but they taught me otherwise. --84.90.219.128 (talk) 15:45, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

DYK nomination of DeQuin Evans[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of DeQuin Evans at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! BlueMoonset (talk) 03:10, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Joeykai, thanks for submitting the nomination, but I'm afraid it had to be rejected. The article is no longer new—you started it on March 20—and nominations need to be made within seven days of creation or expansion. (This was over three and a half months.) Before your July 12 edits the article was at 1116 prose characters (and 1198 afterwards). DYK minimum is 1500 prose characters for new articles, and for articles that aren't new, the article needs to be expanded to at least five times its pre-expansion size—this would mean the article would need to be 5590 prose characters to qualify. I hope you try DYK again in the future with an article newly created within the past week. Please let me know if you have any questions. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:10, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Red links are to be avoided... Please do not create them by linking to non-existent articles unless you intend to create that article ASAP... GWFrog (talk) 13:44, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

See: Wikipedia:Red link... GWFrog (talk) 13:46, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
From the WP:REDYES you cited: "Creating a red link also carries the responsibility to first ascertain that the red link is a valid title of a page, and that its foreseeable new subject matter will meet the notability guidelines for topics covering: people (WP:BIO), web content (WP:WEB), businesses (WP:CORP), and more." Although David Korn will very likely, at some future time, become sufficiently notable to have his own article due to his becoming more than an interim head coach, Brian Jones will likely remain a largely unknown goalkeepers coach due mainly to his lack of a college education which is usually a requirement for attaining higher level coaching positions. He could well rise above the lack, but at this time, both coaches are insufficiently notable to deserve their own articles, otherwise, I probably would have created those articles myself at about the same time I created the navbox. Additionally, what might appear in Category:NCAA Division I FBS coach navigational boxes has no bearing on what might appear in a soccer coach navbox; apples are not oranges...GWFrog (talk) 14:37, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
@GWFrog: The format for college coach navboxes does not change based on sport.Joeykai (talk) 14:40, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
@GWFrog: Basically look at anything in Category:American college athletic coach navigational boxes. The format is consistent.Joeykai (talk) 14:43, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Your claim that "...they all use red links..." is patently bogus. Some do, the majority do not. Your statement that, "The format is consistent" holds true only in that most of those red links are from coaches who worked more than a few years ago, so that citing references to justify their notability proves difficult... Current coaches generally do not have red links because the references of their notability is abundantly available... GWFrog (talk) 15:15, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
They all use either red links or are blue links. There are no unlinked coaches. The format is consistent.Joeykai (talk) 15:53, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Consistent does not equal correct. Thousands and thousands of consistently incorrect incidents is naught but thousands and thousands of wrong entries. Rather than adding additional wrong entries in order to be consistent, the right and proper action would be to remove the improper red links... GWFrog (talk) 15:56, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Coding for American-style MDY dates[edit]

Joey, "mf=y" coding should be used in all non-military articles that use American English; it means "month first dates = yes," i.e., standard format American-style dates such as January 1, 2015: [5]. This is supposed to be part of the standard formatting for Template:Birth date and Template:Death data for every biographical article written in American English (with an exception for certain articles about the U.S. military because the military uses DMY dates), and the same infobox templates in bios written in British and Commonwealth English are supposed to be encoded with "df=y". Please do not remove this coding from the infoboxes of NFL players or any other American biographical subject. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:05, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi, this works and requires less typing :) Frietjes (talk) 20:15, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Florida Agricultural College/University of Florida at Lake City[edit]

Joey, I have reverted your recent additions to Template:Florida Gators football navbox. There were multiple problems with what you represented as the "history" of the University of Florida "Florida Gators" football team:

1. There was no continuity of legal existence between the old Florida Agricultural College/University of Florida at Lake City (1884–1905) and the modern University of Florida (1905-present);

2. The modern University of Florida had not one, but four predecessor institutions: (1) Florida Agricultural College/University of Florida at Lake City, (2) East Florida Seminary in Gainesville, (3) St. Petersburg Normal and Industrial School in St. Petersburg, and (4) Florida Military College Bartow;

3. The predecessor institution in Lake City was founded as the Florida Agricultural College in 1884, and was known as the "University of Florida" for its last two years of existence (1903–1905) -- from the 1880s until 1903, the West Florida Seminary, one of Florida State's predecessor institutions, was officially called the "University of Florida";

4. The Florida State Legislature passed the Buckman Act in 1905, which legally abolished the University of Florida's four predecessor institutions -- that is, they legally ceased to exist as corporate entities -- and the legislature created a new entity, the "University of the State of Florida, and endowed it with the assets of the four predecessors and consolidated their academic programs within the new entity's purview;

5. All existing faculty members, including the university president, were required to re-apply for their jobs in 1905;

6. The new university was a men-only institution, whereas the four predecessors were co-ed;

7. The new university recognized 1905 as its founding date until the 1930s, where president John Tigert and the state attorney general agreed to retroactively adopt EFS's 1853 opening as the new university's "founding" date;

8. The modern University of Florida was officially known as the "University of the State of Florida" from 1905 to 1909, when the name was officially shortened to the University of Florida;

9. The FAC/UFLC football team was never officially known as the "Blue and White", nor was EFS's football team ever officially known as the "Orange and Black";

10. The 1905 squad would have been the first varsity football team of the modern University of Florida, but president Andrew Sledd cancelled the 1905 season when several members of the team were declared academically eligible;

11. Adding to the confusion, the new university operated on the Lake City campus of FAC/UFLC during the 1905–06 school year, while the new Gainesville campus was being built, and moved its faculty and students to Gainesville in August of 1906;

12. The modern University of Florida and the University Athletic Association do not recognize the pre-1905 FAC/UFLC or EFS football teams as part of the Florida Gators football team's history or win-loss record -- the first officially recognized varsity football team of the modern university is/was the 1906 squad;

13. The new university's colors were orange and blue -- a combination of the blue and white of FAC/UFLC and the orange and black of EFS; and

14. The new university's first football coach was James Forsythe, the last football coach of Florida State College in 1904, and only one player from the last FAC/UFLC team in 1904 was a member of the new university's first football team in 1906.

In short, there was a major break from the prior history of the predecessor institutions and teams in 1905, when the new university came into being. The history is complicated, but the break point was the 1905 Buckman Act, which legally did away with the four predecessor institutions and created a new state university to take their places. In order to get a better understanding of the messy political, legal, corporate and academic history surrounding the modern University of Florida, you need to read the Andrew Sledd, Henry Holland Buckman and History of the University of Florida articles, as well as the history sections of the University of Florida and Florida Gators football articles. The key is understanding that modern University of Florida did not exist until the Florida state legislature legally abolished Florida Agricultural College/University of Florida at Lake City, East Florida Seminary in Gainesville, St. Petersburg Normal and Industrial School in St. Petersburg, and South Florida Military College Bartow, and consolidated their assets and academic programs in the new "University of the State of Florida" (the modern University of Florida) in 1905. The new University of the State of Florida was a legally separate and distinct animal from the old Florida Agricultural College in Lake City, which was known as the "University of Florida" for its last two years of existence. Because the modern university did not exist until 1905, the University Athletic Association does not recognize the win-loss records of the pre-1905 FAC/UFLC or EFS football teams; the other two predecessors did not have teams.

I hope this helps. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 16:00, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Dash script[edit]

Hi Joeykai. In this edit, your script made several fixes, but also two mistakes:

  • It changed "2000-cash notes" to "2000–cash notes" (the hyphen was right there).
  • It changed hyphens in an ISBN (in the |isbn= parameter of a citation template) to en-dashes.

In Junior Etou's case he will be sitting out the entire upcoming season and will not play for Tulsa until the 2016–17 season.

Color module for college sports[edit]

Joey, please provide a linked reference on the module talk page for this change: [6]. Because of past vandalism and edit-warring over changes to college sports team colors, all changes and additions to the color module must be documented. As a temporary solution, we are adding linked sources for all such changes to the module talk page, so that the changes and additions may be easily confirmed by other editors. In the near future, those linked sources will be added directly to the module for quick and easy confirmation. Your cooperation and assistance are appreciated. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 15:46, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Joey, please do not add or change team colors without providing a reliable source on the module talk page. I have now reverted your last three edits to the module because you (a) did not acknowledge my message immediately above, nor (b) take the requested corrective action by providing reliable sources for your changes to the color module. Please play by the rules that everyone else is. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 02:26, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
this edit shouldn't have been reverted.Joeykai (talk) 02:28, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Joey, as previously requested above on November 9, 2015, please provide your reliable sources for any changes or additions to the college colors module on the module talk page. Everyone else is complying, and you are not any more or less special than every other sports editor making contributions to the module. We have a history of people making unsourced changes to our college team colors and creating problems as a result -- please do not be a part of that problem. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 02:38, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
@Dirtlawyer1: I have not changed colors, I've just added colors that were not there. For this edit I took the colors already in Template:Southern Jaguars football navbox and added them to the module because there had previously been no Southern U colors in the module. Reverting this edit goes back to having NO colors for Southern rather than having possibly slightly wrong colors that were already in wide use across various Southern Jaguars wikipedia pages and templates.Joeykai (talk) 02:43, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Joey, try searching South Alabama Jaguars brand identity, University of South Alabama brand identity, South Alabama Jaguars hex colors, and University of South Alabama hex colors using Google. The overwhelming majority of major American universities now post their official Hex and/or Pantone colors on their websites in order to present a consistent image and trademarks to the public, and to control third-party sports marketing of their teams. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 02:51, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
@Dirtlawyer1: its was the Southern University Jaguars, not South Alabama, which already has colors in the module.Joeykai (talk) 02:55, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Joey, change the university and team names, and the same point still applies. The Southern University/team colors need to be sourced. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:03, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
@Dirtlawyer1 and Joeykai: Guys, I don't know who's right or wrong here, and frankly, I don't care, but somebody needs to go back and fix this. Charleston Southern's colors are most definitely not black and gray. Ejgreen77 (talk) 23:31, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Colors[edit]

Joey, the colors you're changing to are no longer the actual colors the schools use. If the policy is the official colors don't offer enough contrast, then we should be taking the colors out completely, not changing them to something that the schools don't actually use. Either way, the new scheme on Military Classic of the South looks atrocious. Billcasey905 (talk) 21:23, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Also, moving to compact removes an alternative way to understand what the color expresses. Please reconsider. Billcasey905 (talk) 21:25, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Definition of Youth soccer[edit]

I would say youth football is under-18/schoolboy/schoolgirl while college soccer is 18 to 21 and should be regarded as senior especially in the USA or Ireland. Campbell and Connolly are both senior Republic of Ireland internationals so how can their club teams be listed as youth teams. Campbell had a senior career playing at national league, Champions League and senior international level, before playing college soccer, yet you placed college career in youth years chronologically before her senior career, this makes no sense to me and is misleading. Djln Djln (talk) 21:13, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

@Djln: look at the infoboxes of say, Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach, Clint Dempsey, Mia Hamm, basically literally any other soccer player; college soccer belongs in the youth section. Joeykai (talk) 22:03, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
  • I disagree. It may make sense in these particular articles but not in every article. There is no rule written in stone we have to follow like sheep. As I said above, Campbell played national league, Champions League and senior international level, before playing college soccer. It makes no chronological sense ? Youth football and college soccer are not even the same age groups Djln Djln (talk) 22:14, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of William Eyang[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on William Eyang, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Pittsburgh Pirates colors[edit]

Hello, Joeykai (talk), I am writing this message because of the changes you made at Module:Baseball color/data. Specifically, the second color for the Pittsburgh Pirates should be  white , not  gold . This is because the other related Pirates' templates use  white  as the secondary color, not  gold . I only undid your edit in order to ensure consistency through WP's Pirates' articles/templates. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 20:50, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

then change all the other templates to gold. Gold is the correct color and Black and Gold are compliant. We've been over this before. Joeykai (talk) 20:59, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
@Joeykai: Gold may be the second color used by the Pittsburgh Pirates; however, for formatting purposes, the second color listed for the Pirates at Module:Baseball color/data should be  white . Please discuss at the module's talk page before reverting again. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 21:35, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
@Joeykai: I noticed your edit made at Module:Baseball color/data. Please STOP reverting that edit until consensus is reached. Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 01:36, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
the Pirates' colors are black and gold. Represent the correct colors for the team (black and gold) or incorrect colors for the team (what you want, for some reason)? It's not a hard choice. Joeykai (talk) 03:24, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
@Joeykai: Would you be amenable to having the colors for the Pittsburgh Pirates look like this?: 1.  #FDB827 , 2.  #000000 , 3.  #000000 , 4.  #FFFFFF  Charlesaaronthompson (talk) 20:11, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Deletion discussions[edit]

Any chance you could write a bit more in your deletion discussions. Just saying they fail NHOCKEY is causing a lot of issues.

Abbreviating touchdown in infobox[edit]

Hey, I was just curious for your rationale of abbreviating "touchdown" as "TD" in the infobox, like here. I see it often, and you may not be the only one who does it (I only checked for this one occurrence) but in most cases abbreviating it as opposed to typing it out doesn't save any line space.

Speedy deletion nomination of Mattias Elfström[edit]

Hello Joeykai,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Mattias Elfström for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Dane2007 (talk) 18:51, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Yegor Rykov[edit]

Hello, Joeykai. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Yegor Rykov, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Yegor Rykov to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.

If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.

Thanks, Dane2007 (talk) 18:59, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Careful With That Axe![edit]

I see you sometimes use a script to change various spellings based on which country’s conventions make sense. Unfortunately, it’s casting too wide a net. A lot of the words changed (e.g. ‘color’, ‘center’) are part of HTML markup or Wikicode, and have to be spelled that way. The software won’t work if the word isn’t spelled as in the definition (which is usually the American way). I don’t know if the script you use can ignore things in code or quotations. Maybe it can be run in a no-edit mode, so it can identify words that should be changed, and you can use a manual search and replace to change only the instances that are appropriate.

Why would you change it?[edit]

I have been doing this in the same format for several years, and you are suddenly making changes without giving any reason for the changes. Do you have a valid reason for the changes, or are you just changing it to the way you would have done it, if you had done it in the first place???.. GWFrog (talk) 05:20, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure if you're familiar with Template:Goal, but the changes I made are the way penalty kicks and assists are typically indicated. Joeykai (talk) 05:26, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
In point of fact, Template:Goal gives absolutely zero guidance on how to typically indicate assists, and the only guidance for PKs is to include "|pen." inside the bracket, which adds a "pen." notation... I have been doing it in a manner that I thought was clear and easily understood, and I see no real reason for your making the changes... GWFrog (talk) 06:06, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
The reason is to have consistency with the rest of wikipedia Joeykai (talk) 06:32, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
Take the discussion to Wikipedia:WikiProject Football if you don't believe me Joeykai (talk) 06:36, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
All you had to do was note that in the edit summary when you made the first edit. But, no, you were too busy making edits to explain why the edit was made, then seemed to be trying to start some kind of confrontation over a very minor point, when we should be working toward the same goal... GWFrog (talk) 06:47, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

The same goes for Alphonso Davies. Yes, he was born in Liberia, but WP:FOOTY rules are that if he represents a nation at the international level he should be considered of that nation. The fact that he has never represented Liberia internationally somewhat precludes him being a Liberian footballer. That he has represented Canada without holding Canadian nationality is not germane to the discussion. In short, he's not a Liberian Footballer, but if you take the discussion to WP:FOOTY, I will go along with their consensus on the topic. Walter Görlitz (talk) 07:02, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

He can be listed in both categories (Liberian footballers and Canadian soccer players). For anything that cannot reasonably use two nationalities, then go with Canada, I am in agreement. But for categories, he can be listed under both. Joeykai (talk) 07:05, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Category Renaming[edit]

Be careful with renaming ice hockey player categories. Ice hockey players are categorized based on the name of the team during the time they played on the team. So in atleast two cases that I fixed today many of the articles had to have their categories switched back to the original one. If you are trying to put players in a new name of the team just create a new category for a new name and then only put the players who have played since the name changed in that category. -DJSasso (talk) 14:56, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Canadian date formats[edit]

MOS:DATETIES - "Articles related to Canada may use either format with (as always) consistency within each article."
MOS:DATERET - "If an article has evolved using predominantly one format, the whole article should conform to it [...] The date format chosen by the first major contributor in the early stages of an article should continue to be used."
Please do not change any Canadian articles from DMY to MDY if DMY is the established format. GiantSnowman 08:11, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Template:2006 UC Santa Barbara Gauchos men's soccer navbox[edit]

Joeykai, I noticed your recent edit to 2006 UC Santa Barbara Gauchos men's soccer navbox with the following note added:

"The only criteria for inclusion in this navbox is the existence of a player or coach's page on Wikipedia. If other players or coaches from this team have Wikipedia pages, they should be included in this navbox. It is not the intention of this navbox to include the entire team roster, as college athletes do not automatically meet Wikipedia's notability requirements, unlike professional athletes."

As someone who doesn't deal a ton in the Navbox space like yourself, I was interested to learn from you the reasoning as to such a statement. Can you point me to where this resides on Wikipedia, either as MOS or consensus elsewhere? I can't seem to find it when I've looked. Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction! GauchoDude (talk) 15:36, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

The statement is included in the vast majority of templates in Category:American college sports championship team navigational boxes, especially the football ones, which are the oldest and most used. Joeykai (talk) 17:13, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. After doing more digging, I was able to come across NAVBOX, which doesn't shed a ton of light on this topic. There is also an unofficial essay, EXISTING, which proposes that the articles must be existing in bullet point 2, which is much more relevant. I don't think that's the ultimate golden rule, as it is an essay after all, but I thought I'd share with you if you hadn't come across those previously.

Paul DiPietro[edit]

This is a new one for me, is it really accurate to list Spengler Cup players as Canadian National team members. Seems odd seeing as it is a club competition.18abruce (talk) 20:37, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Player stat tables[edit]

The Canadian spelling of centre does not work in the stat tables. You didn't change the spelling for "style="text-align:center" but if you were to do so it wouldn't work. If you removed that line of code, leaving just the instances of "ALIGN="centre", that wouldn't work either. --Parkfly20 (talk) 11:48, 15 March 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)!

There's a consensus to only list teams from the highest level of a country that the player played at. Reichard has played for 2 AHL teams (Houston, Iowa) and 7 ECHL teams and only the AHL teams should be listed. Joeykai (talk) 06:59, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Josh Bailey[edit]

Hello! I am coming to you because I saw you also edited on Josh Bailey's article and seem to be a well knowing and established editor. I am having an issue with an IP user on the Josh Bailey article. They keep on adding Elite Right Winger to the article despite me telling them on their talk page it doesn't follow a Neutral POV. I pointed out that other players who are considered Elite, like Crosby, do not have "Elite Centre" written on their page in that section but they ignore me. They claim the NHL announced it but I cannot find a source. I have already reverted it 3 times and left them a message. This also seems to be their only contribution to Wikipedia.

I was wondering if you had any further suggestions.

Ximena Ríos[edit]

Hi Joey, just wondered why you removed the prod here. Doe you think the player meets NFOOTY? No problem if you think that it does but do you have a reference to confirm? In it's current state there's nothing to support notability. Thanks, Fenix down (talk) 08:29, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, that must've been a mistake, I hadn't realized I removed the PROD on that article. Joeykai (talk) 08:31, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
No problem. The article creator seems to have created over 100 articles on players in this league, almost all of whom seem non notable to me. Some of them had the national team in the info box but no claim to actual caps nor any reference to support the fact that they had actually played. Feel free to revert any prods I made that you think they are notable, I see you already spotted one. Fenix down (talk) 08:43, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Antoine Laganière requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay.

Eniola Aluko of England (in white) and Jovana Mrkić (in red) of Montenegro, 2014

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}}
