Proposed deletion of Kamratmästerskapen[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

Article claims notability "was still an important tournament in the early years of Swedish football", but it is unreferenced in 3 other languages and a search for published (gBooks) references finds only a single minor mention fails WP:V and WP:N

While all 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.

Fb team templates[edit]

Hi! Just letting you know that i've changed the templates of Helsingborg, Halmstad, Örebro and Djurgården to avoid confusion with the clubs you mentioned. --Reckless182 (talk) 21:47, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi! I've been doing extensive research of my own on the things you and I have discussed for the last days. I've been going through various media and club resources such as websites and other literature. What I've found is the following, almost all clubs (Elfsborg is a notable exception) refer to themselves in all cases with their full name, along with the abbreviations. Almost all clubs also feature their abbreviations in their club logo as well. I believe this proves the point you made in the previous discussion about the abbreviations actually being part of the club names in a larger sense than I previously thought. The media still refers to the clubs mostly without abbreviations, this supports my view about common speech, however the usage heavily depends on the type of media, Fotbollskanalen vs Dagens Nyheter for example.
This tells me that you may be correct in your view to change the templates. I don't think we should overdo it, for example Djurgårdens IF and not Djurgårdens IF FF, Varbergs BoIS and not Varbergs BoIS FC or similar, two abbreviations is fine, three is overdoing it. I am still unsure if this goes against any WP norm and I'm a bit worried that it goes against WP consistency. I still think we should try to shorten the names as much as we can in the prose, first link with abbreviations is fine, but further club references in the text should be shortened for a better text flow.
What do you think? --Reckless182 (talk) 23:41, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
Since there hasn't been much of a response at the main talk page, this might be the sensible thing to do for the moment. I do believe we should wait some time though, maybe someone else is interrested but hasn't seen the discussion yet. I didn't mean to be intrusive, I realise that it might have looked and felt like that (me, as a "newcomer", klampar in som en elefant i porslinsbutiken and wants to change a lot of the things you've created over the years) and I apologise. You've done a fantastic job in converting all the tables to the standard template using variant, plus everything else you've done for the Swedish football articles.
I agree with your proposal, no FF och FK or FC as long as this is only added to distinguish the football section from the other sections, and prose is up to the editor and, as you say, can be shortened (and varied, for example for Malmö FF this means "Malmö", "MFF" and "Malmö FF" can be used interchangeably) to fit the text, only writing out the full name of the club on the first instance it is mentioned in the article.
We can give it a week or two before we do anything. – Elisson • T • C • 00:15, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
I agree, let's give it some time and see if someone can offer a better solution. Don't worry, you didn't come off as intrusive, on the contrary I'm glad you brought up an issue worth discussing and I actually learned something new. I've encountered a lot of editors on WP that prefers action before discussion, something which only leads to unnecessary edit wars. Setting standards is a good thing, we should consider standardizing other things such as article format for the Allsvenskan season articles, such as what sections to include, what maps to use (two different ones right now) and what statistics to include. --Reckless182 (talk) 01:16, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
Oh and BTW, I'm not sure if its a good idea to use abbreviations such as MFF in prose, statistics is fine (such as the results table) but I'm not sure if the casual non Swedish reader would be able to recognize the clubs from the three letter abbreviation. --Reckless182 (talk) 01:18, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
This is an issue that I do not feel "highly charged" about but recognise that it has ramifications in the way that league tables are presented in the future. I have added some additional content to WikiProject Football in the hope that it will stimulate broader and more informed debate. From your discussion above I am optimistic that we can reach concensus in the event that there is little response on the main talk page. Finnish Gas (Finnish Gas 10:45, 12 December 2011 (UTC)).

One week has passed and our discussion over at WP:FOOTBALL has been archived without any further replies. Let us proceed with the process, As I said above, I can agree with the renaming of the templates as long as we don't overdo it. You are free to rename the templates, just ask me if need any help or if you want to discuss a particular team name. --Reckless182 (talk) 12:18, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Welcome back[edit]

Catching up on what I'd missed after returning from a wikibreak, it was a pleasure to see your name on WT:WPF. There's not many left of the real old-timers. Angelo's still here, as are ChrisTheDude and The Rambling Man. I don't edit all that much myself these days. Nevertheless, while the names have changed, the Football project is busier than ever. Now I think about it, I've come to the quite scary realisation that six years have passed since we first crossed paths :s Oldelpaso (talk) 19:41, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi and thanks! It's nice to see that you're still active (I checked two football users for activity when I returned, you and Qwghlm, who seems to be on a very long wikibreak), along with a few of the other long time members. I mainly returned to contribute to other areas than football, but it seems no matter how hard I try to stay away I get sucked back to the WPF. :) Yeah... six years. Back when Man City were a mid-table team at best. ;) – Elisson • T • C • 20:53, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
If you look him up on Twitter, it seems Qwghlm has turned his expertise in places like this into a decent career as a social media consultant. Good on him I say. I never intended to specialise in football, it just sort of happened. Too late for me to turn back now. And yes, I've even seen City win something. Entertainingly enough, I've already been accused of being a gloryhunter, both here and in RL. Now its IFK who are mid-table :/ Oldelpaso (talk) 18:44, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
Oh, nice to hear about him. Haha, you've been called a glory hunter here on Wikipedia? I'd love to see that! :D I'm happy that you've gotten to see City in the Champions League (still got a long way to the CL record of IFK though :P) and win something. Rooting for you in the PL, of course (as long as Sheffield Wednesday is nowhere near that title), that'll be a moment you'll never ever forget. Yeah we've plunged in the table the last two years, even placing after city rivals GAIS, for the first time since 1989, this season... New manager and a bunch of new players for 2012 should fix that, though. I hope... – Elisson • T • C • 07:00, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Svenska Mästerskapet, 2012 season articles[edit]

I've noticed your progress with the season and finals articles, great job! I'm sorry that I haven't been able to create more of the season articles, I've been preoccupied with the improvement of the 2012 Allsvenskan, Superettan and Division 1 season articles. I'm trying to set some kind of standard for the articles. If you look at 2011 Allsvenskan you'll see how the articles will look when the season is finished. A couple of issues which can be noticed is the fact that the primary infobox makes the position of User:Finnish Gas's "Swedish Football 2011" infobox and the team map a bit akward and not very good looking. Finnish Gas first placed his infobox in the "League table" section of the article but since I didn't think that the infobox had any relevance to the league table I suggested a placement under the primary infobox instead, but as you can see this creates a bit of a layout problem when the primary infobox is complete. Do you have any suggestions regarding the placement of the "Swedish Football 2011" infobox infobox or any other ideas about the format and layout of the season articles in general? Cheers. --Reckless182 (talk) 10:57, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

The "Swedish Football" infobox that I have introduced throughout Swedish football has increased visitor traffic as users are now able to easily migrate between tiers/divisions. In the majority of years this small box fits in nicely. However I agree for 2011 Allsvenskan with an enlarged primary box there is a layout problem for the "Swedish Football" infobox. For me the Swedish Football 2011" infobox fits perfectly well in the "League table" section as users can compare movements in divisional league tables. But I accept that Reckless182 (talk) as the main contributor has a different view-point. Kind regards - Finnish Gas (Finnish Gas 12:04, 15 December 2011 (UTC)).

I tend to keep out of articles that need to be updated a lot (such as current season articles), so I don't have a strong opinion, but the 2011 Allsvenskan article has a nice structure so I'd stay with that. Regarding the Swedish season infobox, why not make it a navigational template like the ones English, {{2011–12 in English football}}, and German, {{2011–12 in German football}}, football uses? – Elisson • T • C • 12:18, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

There are definitely advantages with the infoboxes like the ones you suggest. However I remember that Finnish Gas argued that the infobox is much more visible in its current format and therefore attracts more views to the different season articles. I would say that the English and German infoboxes are better for the fact that they don't take up as much space as well as they have the ability to add more relevant topics in the infobox at the same time, club seasons (currently only me writing season articles for Malmö FF, which is a pity) and other articles. --Reckless182 (talk) 12:29, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately navigational templates at the bottom of an article are often missed by the user. This is exacerbated by the templates being closed if there are more than one template. I have increased user traffic in Swedish football with the "Swedish Football" infobox. In my opinion to remove the infobox and replace it with a template would be a step backwards. Finnish Gas (Finnish Gas 12:33, 15 December 2011 (UTC)).

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Johan Elisson,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) 07:29, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Evil is among us[edit]

Dear Johan--hur mar du? Is one of your sock puppets trolling my talk page? ;) (No need for administrative action, haha, I'm amused by it. Perhaps you can tell whether that message is "real" Swedish or if it's made by Google Translate.) Incidentally, I think I once had a beer on Gothenburg (on the day the Rolling Stones were in town) which cost me $20 or so and blew the vacation budget. But what a beautiful city. Ciao, Drmies (talk) 14:06, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Haha, I've got no idea what's going on there, but the message is clearly written by someone that knows Swedish (no spelling or grammatical errors whatsoever). I hope it was a very good beer because if it was some watery taste-less lager you got robbed. :) – Elisson • T • C • 17:34, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Odd Lindberg[edit]

Hi there. I found an old article (here), which says that Odd Lindberg was one of the first expatriate footballers in Sweden. As a Norwegian, I'm curious who he was, as I've never heard of him before. A little more searching got me this, a profile-page on sportsklubben.net, about his time in Örebro. The next thing I find is your page, where you have listed the total caps in his four years in Sweden. You don't happen to have any other information about this, which club he came from or left to, date of birth, place of birth, something that could defend the creation of an article? :) Mentoz86 (talk) 09:49, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

My books contain no more information about Odd (apart from him being a goalkeeper), but after using my Google skills I managed to find an article in this archive (just search for "Odd" and you'll find the article) where some interresting facts can be found. He seems to have become a professor at Örebro University (his page there) and at least some of his career clubs are mentioned (Lyn Oslo, Ope IF, Örebro SK and IFK Göteborg, as well as a one-year stint in what appears to be Dallas Tornado). His date of birth is 20 november 1948 as given by birthday.se (he's the only Odd Lindberg living in Sweden old enough to have played in the 70s) and he seems to have been born in Olso, he grew up there, at least. Hope that helps! – Elisson • T • C • 17:13, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
And here's another piece on him: THE ODD GOALIE AND OTHER STORIES. – Elisson • T • C • 17:14, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Because of another Odd F. Lindberg, my google-searches were kinda worthless, but I guess the google-preferences make you find results in Swedish, while I get Norwegian results. This is very helpful, and also very interesting. However, he is not listed in Lyn's squad in any of the years before 1967 ([1]), go I guess he was just a youngster during Lyn's greatest period (which makes sense if he went to the US at the age of 19). playerhistory.com would be a good site to check if he played for Lyn, too bad that site is down. But again, thank you - this info is atleast enough for a stub, so I'll see if I have the time to make the article some day. Mentoz86 (talk) 22:54, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Allsvenska serien[edit]

Hello ! Sorry to disturb You here. I was pre-voting - at my local library. I asked for the local newspaper from August 1924. It was on microfilm, and the mashine wasn't that friendly to me... However ,Landskrona Posten (at the first monday after the new league had started wrote this (I hope You can read the headline, the printer was build in to the microfilm reader, and apperantly needs a new toner...) LP om Allsvenskan 1924.JPG This leaves us with "Allsvenska serien" , but to me it seems plausible that "Allsvenskan" indeed was in use already by its first day. AIK's webbsite states "Storserien" was its first name though. Boeing720 (talk) 17:46, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Although the date cannot be seen, You can detrmine the specific year by swimmer Arne Borg and "Norrköpingslaget" , which lost 0--1 to Landskrona B.&.I.S. , But I can also assure You that it's from the first monday in August 1924. I put it here , because I was interested in Your points of views. It wasn't ment as an offence. Boeing720 (talk) 22:35, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem, although I don't understand why you posted this here, and not to the talk page of Allsvenskan where the issue is discussed. The image doesn't change anything, as said on the talk page, both names were used interchangeably, but the official name was not Allsvenskan until 1934. – Elisson • T • C • 08:47, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Long answer ?[edit]

Sometimes I follow the Jimmy Wales (?) call to be bold. And like I have stated before, this has occationally led to some long talk-page discussions with very experienced contributors and administrators, without ever reciving any personal criticism like lately has been the case. We (You and I) have elsewise only met in the Allsvenskan article, where my contributions mainly is the table of its historical formates and adding international achievements. But questions like from which year the offside rule was changed or when goal average was abandoned are of encyclopedical value I think. And in order to declare the first chairman of the Swedish Football Association a nazi-sympathizer, I feel we need a source, a quality source. But not even the Aftonbladet-source used supports the idea of Clarence von Rosen to have been a nazi-sympathizer. All the tracks I followed have only led to his wife's sister marriage to Herman Göring in the early 1920's. If we can find a source which proves von Rosen as a nazi-sympathizer, then of cource it must be added though. Further I think our discussions at the talk-page has been enlightening for both of us, aswell as of benefit for the article. Boeing720 (talk) 00:03, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

And by the way again - You seem to be member or former member of this http://forum.skalman.nu/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=4138 organization , which seems to discuss among other stuff, "Massakern vid Klågerup 1811" Boeing720 (talk) 03:38, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Tenants[edit]

If you keep undoing my work you should have a closer look. Many of the stadiums I edited already had events in the tenants section. But not a complete list. If that is really your point you should do it right and not leave a worse version of the articles than I had edited. Anyway, you are wrong.

Help with a project...or two[edit]

Hej Johan! Jag ska nu på allvar börja med några fotbollsrelaterade projekt som du hittar här. Egentligen har jag väl indirekt arbetat med dem ända sedan jag tog min första stapplande steg på Wikipedia, men nu känner jag att det är dags att lägga på ett kol! Jag vet att du, precis som jag i viss mån, har bra koll på i alla fall IFK Göteborg så det hade varit väldigt kul om vi kunde hjälpas åt och samarbeta! Vad det gäller landslaget kan jag lägga upp det i Sweden task force då det berör alla. // Mattias321 (talk) 09:37, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

Hej! Jag har tyvärr ytterst sporadiskt med tid för Wikipedia nuförtiden, och gör mestadels stötinsatser bara någon gång ibland (som du kanske har märkt). Men jag hjälper så klart gärna till när jag har den lilla tiden. – Elisson • T • C • 20:26, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Johan Elisson. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.

Nomination of Average attendances of Nordic countries football clubs for deletion[edit]

Hello. A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Average attendances of Nordic countries football clubs is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Average attendances of Nordic countries football clubs until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, please do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Thank you. Spiderone 14:17, 25 September 2016 (UTC)


Translation of Blåvitt[edit]

By translating "Blåvitt" into "The Blue-White" there's less of a chance seeing things like "In the next round they meet the Blåvitt", instead of the more correct "In the next round they meet Blåvitt". Aikclaes (talk) 06:03, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps, but Wikipedia does not exist to simplify translation of each non-English word for people, but to tell people facts. If the Swedish nickname is used in a specific form (no article), then of course the English translation should use the same form (also no article). See for example the colour nickname for Hertha BSC where the German form has an article, and thus the translation also has it. Or the nicknames for Real Sociedad where the colour nickname does not have an article in original or translation, but the other nick has. – Elisson • T • C • 14:17, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Johan Elisson.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

March Madness 2017[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

Name of IFK Göteborg fans[edit]

Hi, I saw you reverted me edit where I added what a fan of IFK Göteborg is called in Swedish. I think it is highly appropriate in a section about supporters of IFK Göteborg. Also, I cannot think of any other words for them than IFK:are. You claim there are a multitude of words, so can you mention three other words that refer to a fan of the club? Aikclaes (talk) 18:15, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Three other words: Blåvit, Kamrat, Ängel. (IFK) Göteborgare could probably also be added to the list of common names for IFK Supporters, besides terms like IFK-supporter, Blåvittsupporter and so on. My main point though, was that the content isn't really encyclopedic. The very standard Swedish "-are" suffix used to form a term for persons associated with a town or organisation doesn't give any encyclopedic information.
Looking through the other Featured Articles on football clubs (21 in total excluding IFK Göteborg), only three (I do not count Malmö FF were you just added the information, I suggest you self-revert it) give any additional information on what supporters are called. Arsenal F.C. mention "Gooners" and the background to that name. FC Barcelona mention "culé" and the background to that name. Liverpool F.C. mention "Kopites" and the background to that name.
In all three cases, these names are not directly derived from the club name or any club nickname, and thus has some merit on its own. The supporters of the other 19 Featured Article clubs of course also are called something, but that's just not encyclopedic enough to warrant a mention.
While we are at it, could you please source the content you are adding? I appreciate most edits you do, but they would be even better if your sourced them. Take for example this edit and your subsequent edits to that paragraph. I've added a source for it now, but it can be problematic if you add content without backing it up with a source. Especially since the mentioned edit was actually incorrect ("five companies visible") which you later corrected. – Elisson • T • C • 18:59, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
I have searched the internet for all the three examples you provided of the "multitude" of names for IFK supporters you claim exists, and I have struggled to find hits for "en blåvit", "en ängel", "en kamrat" referring to an IFK Göteborg supporter. I found several examples of "IFK Göteborgare" though. Granted, "Blåvitt" and "Änglarna" are often used to refer to mainly the team itself, but we are discussing what an IFK Göteborg supporter is usually called in Swedish. Aikclaes (talk) 22:57, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
I can definitely see people coming to this page to look up what a team's supporter is called in the team's native language, no matter how obvious it might be to a Swede, so I don't see why this info should be left out altogether. And even though the ending -are is very common in Swedish, it can't be added to all club names to form the name of a supporter of the club. Aikclaes (talk) 22:57, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Currently the section about IFK Göteborg's supporters has more of a "history of" feel to it. I'm not saying that info is irrelevant, but I definitely think it's better to first state what a supporter of a club is called, then go on about the history of the club's support, maybe under a sub paragraph. Aikclaes (talk) 22:57, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion to source my edits more often. I can definitely improve in this area. I admit having a lack of knowledge about what sources would be relevant in the case you mentioned. Could the whole paragraph I added about kit logos be sourced to a link with a photo of the current kit, or does each sponsor need a separate source? Aikclaes (talk) 22:57, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
How have you struggled with that? Some example usages for the names (including inflections):
I also find it quite peculiar that you as an AIK supporter is arguing with me, an IFK supporter and author of a book about IFK supporter culture, about what we are called.
Yes, people could probably look for a lot of things on Wikipedia in general. That's not an argument for inclusion. Read WP:NOTEVERYTHING. And no, stating what an IFK supporter is usually called does not help with giving the section less of a "history of" feel.
Again, what supporters are called is generally not encyclopedic content, unless, as said it differs greatly from the club name or nicknames.
With regards to sources, I suggest you read up on WP:RS, WP:CS, and WP:OR. – Elisson • T • C • 12:29, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
