Canada's coach and captain[edit]

Hi! I was just looking at the article Canada men's national junior ice hockey team. In the infobox it states that the team's coach is Dave Lowry and that the captain is Brayden Point. However, our coach for the 2017 WJC is Dominique Ducharme and our captain is Dylan Strome. Some of the assistant coaches are outdated as well. Is the infobox supposed to say the old information or should it be updated? WJC starts tonight so we should probably get this straightened out. Regards, Jith12 (talk) 16:37, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

re: Bibliography[edit]

Yeah, I've got a rather large collection at home, so I could probably add quite a few to your list. I've been mostly retired and therefore generally forgetful, so feel free to ping me again in a while if I forget! Resolute 14:19, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Central America[edit]

Hi Kaiser! Just wanted to let you know that all of the country task forces under {{WikiProject Central America}} have been migrated to full-fledged WikiProjects of their own. So instead of using {{WikiProject Central America|Honduras=yes}}, for example, you should use {{WikiProject Honduras}}. Thanks! Kaldari (talk) 19:50, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Hockey[edit]

Hi , please create this article in asian hockey.

Leblanc[edit]

This was just archived (failed) at FAC. (You'd have to ask Ian why it was archived, but the FAC coords are under some pressure to either archive or pass FACs before too much time has elapsed, and I'm guessing he thought this one was going to be a while.) I was looking at it, and just wanted to report what I found. My best guess from reading this source is that it did support the text; it says "leading the league in scoring for two straight seasons" and "turned to hockey by age 15 ... he joined the Midget Triple-A Lac St. Louis Lions". Assuming the word "youngster" meant "before 15", I think you got that bit right (although maybe it was just bad writing by the journalist). As I mentioned in my comments, different Wikipedians have different concepts of how to use (or avoid) "as of". User:Moisejp may have more suggestions for you. One thing to keep in mind: some reviewers want all articles to read like nice, sensible history articles, where the sources tell you everything you need to know. Journalism isn't always like that ... if the sources don't provide the information a reviewer is asking for, just tell them that. I'll be happy to support on prose if you want to work on this and renominate it in two weeks. - Dank (push to talk) 01:48, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

One change, to the last sentence. I've been reviewing most of what's at FAC lately. I might keep doing that, but the only way it's going to be possible is if I only cover each article once. I'll let the FAC coords know, and hopefully it won't be more difficult the second time around. - Dank (push to talk) 13:34, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

olympic hockey edits[edit]

saw your changes and wondered how I missed some of those odd additions. Thanks.18abruce (talk) 15:28, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

On a totally different note, I was wondering if you know anything about the history of Eugene Grazia. His eliteprospects page claims he played for Italy in the 1953 'B' pool, which would seemingly have made him ineligible to play for the U.S. in the 1960 olympics. I have come across a couple of others who represented more than one nation prior to it being allowed, but none in such a high profile tournament.18abruce (talk) 15:57, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Harry Beadles[edit]

You just passed the GA review for Harry Beadles. However, I see two problems with the lead sentence:

George Harold "Harry" Beadles (28 September 1897 – 29 August 1958) was a Welsh professional footballer and Wales international.

First, footballer is redirecting to Association football and Wales international redirecting to Wales national football team are easter egg links. Second, isn't the sentence George Harold "Harry" Beadles was a Wales international" ungrammatical? I'm just not seeing the logic here. LK (talk) 01:19, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

BTW, if you like, you can join the discussion I'm starting here on the Wikiproject Football. LK (talk) 01:49, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]

Hello,

Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

WikiProject Women in Red/The World Contest[edit]

Hi. Thankyou for your participation in the challenge series or/and contests. In November The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There will be over $4000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. If this would appeal to you and you think you'd be interested in contributing new articles on women during this month for your region or wherever please sign up in the participants section. The articles done may also count towards the ongoing challenge. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate and raise money to buy books about women for others to use, this is also fine. Help would also be appreciated in drawing up the lists of missing articles. If you think of any missing articles please add them to the sub lists by continent at Missing articles. Thankyou, and if taking part, good luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:40, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Pavel Bure[edit]

Hello:

I have been working on your GOCE request for a copy edit of the article Pavel Bure. In the "International Career Senior" section this sentence fragment appears at the beginning of the second paragraph: "In the 1996 World Cup of Hockey, Team Russia had played five preliminary games in order to set the" and makes no sense in the context of what follows. Can you have a look and see if you can "fix" this? I'll continue with the copy edit on 15/10. Thanks. 21:35, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
