Basketball image[edit]

Hi! I just wanted to drop a note about the image Firstbasketball.jpg that you uploaded about a month ago — it's a nice addition to the basketball article, because it's clearly notable and important (rather than random) (assuming it's accurate etc. etc.) — thanks!

WikiProject Golf[edit]

Hi Kinston eagle, and thanks for your contributions to Edgmont Country Club. I was wondering if you would like to join WikiProject Golf? It would be a great opportunity to collaborate with other wikipedians on golf articles. Thanks again. Grover 05:16, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

No Thank you. Thanks for the offer though.Kinston eagle 10:44, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Teams vs. Former teams in MLB player infoboxes[edit]

Hi ... after a good deal of discussion over the past week or so on the WP:WPBBP talk page we reached a consensus that we would change the headers in the MLB player infoboxes from "former teams" to "teams". As such, please don't revert our work in making these changes. If you disagree with the decision we made, post your concerns on the project talk page. Thanks. --Sanfranman59 03:12, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi, echoing Sanfranman59's statement -- I think that we're moving from "former teams" to "teams" in general, though I don't think that there's going to be a mass move to change all "formerteams" to "teams" at once, and any help in fixing mistakes ("formerteams" that include current or vice versa) would be appreciated; but with all the great new writing that needs to be done on the encyclopedia, I don't think that reversions are helpful. -- Myke Cuthbert (talk) 04:53, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
Minor League and college teams do not belong under "teams" in player infoboxs, please see [[1]] for more information, it seems like you have a history of just making edits because you feel like they should be there but they are not approved, like changing teams back to formerteams after its been decided that formerteams is going to go away. There is a reason why no player has minor league teams on their list of teams, they are not useful, players can play for alot of minor league teams before making the big leagues, whats next are you going to start adding high schools, middle schools, little league teams to their list of old teams. MetsFan153 11:40, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I think that minor league teams should only be listed for a player with little or no MLB experience -- they are not an important part of a major league player's biography 95% of the time. Experience at the top foreign leagues (esp. Japan) generally is. (And here's where I hate infoboxes in general -- I don't think anyone would object to the adding of minor league teams to the prose of the articles). -- Myke Cuthbert (talk) 15:20, 27 May 2007 (UTC)


Ramirez/Lofton Trade[edit]

Wow. A single A player being traded for a veteran major leaguer? That seems to make him pretty notable.Kinston eagle 00:50, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

True. I see you working.  :) Nick22aku 00:55, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
...And not once but twice as I'm sure you remember the Bob Wickman trade last year. Nick22aku 00:58, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Wilson Tobs[edit]

Thanks for the kind words--I really enjoyed creating some of the entries for many teams I read about in the sports section here in North Carolina. Please go ahead and add some history for the Wilson Tobs. You are probably far more qualified than me to write about that. Thanks again Jeick 23:39, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Kingston Indians[edit]

Hey, I read your post at the WikiProject NC talk page. Although I'm no expert, I would recommend getting a Wikipedia:Peer review. Also, let me now what I can do to help, I'd love to see a North Carolina related article make featured status. --Mr.crabby (Talk) 16:38, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Reggie Jackson[edit]

Can you please go to Reggie jacksons talk page and vote for either A's or Yankees colors in the infobox--Yankees10 20:55, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Ongoing AfD of I Don't Dance[edit]

I submitted my comment to the Billboard 100 news, and I think that the article will definitely be kept if some of the ideas I placed there are used. Please check it outRavenmasterq 15:59, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Portal:Sports and games[edit]

Hi. I just noticed at Portal:Sports and games/Selected content nominations where you had nominated Kinston Indians. I have set it up for next month at Portal:Sports and games/Selected article/October 2007. I just used the first few paragraphs from the article - please feel free to change anything you would like. --B 22:39, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Alphabet books[edit]

I have just started to propose this article for Did you know. However I see you have spent a lot of time wikifying it (and I see it has a way to go). Was this your intention? Are you willing to help? Do you know where the "stuff" came from. Is it original? Lots of questions ... sorry Victuallers 19:22, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Are you that Kinston Eagle?[edit]

I'm a Cleveland Indians fan who lives in NC and sometimes watches the Kinston Indians and visits their web forum and there is a Kinston Eagle there as well. Is that you? LightningMan 15:45, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Notability Sports[edit]

Please rescind your nomination for deletion of the notability sports page. We can just tag it as rejected and be done with it immediately. An MfD will muddy the clarity of the present consensus and is likely to work at cross purposes to your apparent intent. I tried this last year with terrible result. --Kevin Murray 15:58, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

North Carolina Wikipedians[edit]

I was wondering if there are plenty of more Wikipedians from North Carolina, especially Newport where I'm from. I recommend there should be a page list for it. Bwjs 16:32, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Reggie Jackson[edit]

well that is stupid, why does every other infobox have color but not his--75.82.16.153 13:55, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Reggie Jacksons color[edit]

Please dont change the colors on Reggie Jacksons infobox anymore, there was one main person who kept changing it to A's colors and that was Pascack, and he hasnt edited since August. What I think is that we keep the Yankees colors in the infobox, but if someone keeps changing it back and forth, then we go back to neutral colors--Yankees10 16:08, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Just wait until people keep changing the colors back and forth to change it back to neutral colors, you dont control the article, so please stop, and by the way I didnt appreciate the response you said about me saying: "You're ridiculous", I could report that because you are offending me--Yankees10 18:08, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Its pretty dumb that you would use your IP address 69.68.238.142 to change the colors, like I wouldnt know it was you--Yankees10 21:45, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

BTW[edit]

You signed my autograph book twice. SashaCall (Sign!)/(Talk!) 20:19, 24 October 2007 (UTC)


Tex Taylor[edit]

I do not know if this Tex Taylor alive or not. However, there is a policy (see Category:Living people under Expansion) to put anyone not known to be dead and who would be under 90 years old in the Living people category. Afasmit (talk) 05:37, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Players on one team[edit]

I've undone some of the color changes you've done. I see nothing wrong with having colors for retired players that have only played for one team. Even players who have played all but one year on one team. Seems silly. —Wknight94 (talk) 03:37, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't like it. Let's discuss. Was there some agreement to this approach somewhere? I've seen discussion in various places but I assume you can recall where since you're doing the mass changes. —Wknight94 (talk) 03:41, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I started a section at WT:MLB#Infobox colors ---- again. Can you at least hold off on the single-team players until a discussion can take place? There's no rush after all. There is at least one other who agrees with me. —Wknight94 (talk) 03:52, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
There are thousands of retired players with articles here. Surely you can skip the few where I disagree with your approach, can't you? —Wknight94 (talk) 04:23, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Not "one or two", just one. If you'd like to even leave the ones gray, I'd consider that. I'd be interested to know if there have been any disputes in such cases. My guess is no. —Wknight94 (talk) 04:32, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
By the way, you're wasting your time anyway. To remove the color from all retired player infoboxes, all you would need to do is edit Template:Infobox MLB retired. —Wknight94 (talk) 04:35, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
You can use {{Editprotected}} on the template's talk page. Or WP:RFPP#Current requests for significant edits to a protected page. As for a controversy, what you're trying to do is resolving the few color disputes that have come up (Reggie Jackson, Tug McGraw ---- where else?) at the expense of changing thousands of articles (yes, literally thousands), possibly causing a huge uproar that would be difficult to undo. —Wknight94 (talk) 04:53, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Kinston[edit]

First of all, my "true intention" is to make it a great article. (see WP:FAITH) Please don't accuse me of having an agenda when you don't even know me. Someone being a gospel singer (even though i'm agnostic, i am related to christians in La Grange and don't hate christians) or a conservative politician (i'm a conservative libertarian btw) is not the reason I removed them. They don't seem noteworthy, especially the activist. I'll put them back since you're having a conniption, but once again, don't accuse people.--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 02:42, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Also, look at lists in other cities and towns. Many of them include notable people that at some point lived in the town. Please don't try to be "cute" and use the Kinston Indians example because that is an exception for Kinston.--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 02:48, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Spa(u)lding[edit]

Thanks for catching my typo -- every darned time I type his name, I put a "u" in it. I thought I caught them all, but apparently not. :) --Fabrictramp (talk) 21:26, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

TC&FCNSCFIBBA[edit]

Hey! Who said you could stop by our completely non-secret cabal clubhouse?!?

But seriously, thanks for answering my question about the PR. I had a feeling it'd take a while, and you only confirmed it for me. Feel free to let us know if there's anything we can do to improve Cap Anson that we missed. Cheers, Caknuck (talk) 22:22, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Baseball parks of Toledo, Ohio[edit]

Thanks for your input on this article. I made some more changes. If you're interested, please review. Regarding the Kinston Indians, I saw a game or two there in the early 1990s. I gather that they have remodeled Grainger Stadium since then. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 18:32, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Brandon Durden[edit]

Many thanks for catching single-A all-star bit on Brandon Durden. I read through that article twice before proposing deletion, and still missed it. (Which is a sign that article could use some work. *grin*)--Fabrictramp (talk) 13:42, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I would just like to stop by and say thanks for improving the article Justin Masterson and voting keep at the AFD. After your comment, the rest of the votes were keep. It was also keeped becuase you cleaned up the article.--Ryan (talk) 23:41, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Ummm...[edit]

What is going on in this article. I'm not sure I understand the rationale behind your edits. It's pretty clearly a speedy page (either A7 or attack). Any reason you're wikilinking it? --Bfigura (talk) 00:30, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I'm working on getting the deletion on the Fort Myers Miracle entries I did overturned WP:DRV. I'd like your support, please.--Johnny Spasm (talk) 09:49, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Project banners[edit]

Please stop taking the Wikipedia Baseball project banners off of legitimate articles such as Kinston Indians. These articles are definitely within the scope of the project and you have offered no explanation as to why they should not be included in it. Thank you, Metros (talk) 01:06, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Is baseball no longer played at Grainger? It once was; I'm fairly certain I saw a game there some years ago. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 01:08, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

It seems as though Kingston eagle has problems with WP:OWNERSHIP, and now that he is having a bit of a dispute with WP:BASEBALL that he is removing articles he has edited from the project. The banner helps the project keep track of progress, we have worklists and clean up lists that are generated from pages that show the banner. Please stop removing it. —Borgardetalk 06:31, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

If it continues, report it to WP:ANI as disruptive behavior. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 06:34, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Somewhat related to the above. Please stop changing WPTC featured list assessments to FL-class. WPTC uses FA-class for all featured content. Thank you. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 00:39, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Jim Tatum[edit]

Sorry about that. I forgot about this. I was just going through disambiguations and saw it again. Maybe there should be some sort of notation that this is the football Jim Tatum (or, even better, move Jim Tatum to Jim Tatum (football) and make the main page a dab page). I can't be the only one who would be confused by this. -Dewelar (talk) 01:25, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Joe Gordon[edit]

Can you please stop removing the HOF info, as Baseball Bugs said they're not going to revoke the election so it doesnt break the crystal ball rule--Yankees10 21:02, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

The thing is if you continue to do these edits, youll be blocked, so be my guest, keep reverting.--Yankees10 02:26, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Please stop reverting the edits Joe Gordon, Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice made the class of 2009. This is not a crystal ball, this is the truth. Thanks --Phbasketball6 (talk) 21:04, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

They do consider him a Hall of Famer, the announcement does. Every year when Professional football players are announce to be induction that means that they ARE Hall of Famers. Thanks --Phbasketball6 (talk) 21:06, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

This is one site, and I use to visit this site myself back in '03 until I relized that the people that update this site are lazy and fall behide. By the way this is only one source. If I am wrong please help me to understand that, can you show me more sources. Thanks --Phbasketball6 (talk) 21:18, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes it is their poor website and that poor website on the front page clearly states that they are voted in which means they are members. The "induction" ceremony is nothing... just them talking about their careers thanking people and getting a plaque. --Phbasketball6 (talk) 21:34, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

I don't see anything on the new link to support your agruement but I do see on the right side: 2009: Jay Bell, David Cone, Ron Gant, Mark Grace, Rickey Henderson, Jesse Orosco, Dan Plesac, Greg Vaughn, Mo Vaughn, Matt Williams.

This supports what I said when I made the claim that this site is poorly updated. Thanks --Phbasketball6 (talk) 22:03, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

By the way they are also BIG differences between sport players making into their Hall of Fame and politicans.

Rickey Henderson[edit]

Your edits to remove the HOF information from the Rickey Henderson article are disruptive. Please refrain from these types of edits. Timneu22 (talk) 22:03, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Honestly, I liked the picture better with the 2 kids in it. I don't really care about the fact that you edited the kids out, in fact if you look at Deolis Guerra's, Wilson Ramos' and half the other pictures of Miracle players, they just about all had at least one kid cut out of the picture. However, I find this particular picture the way it looks now a little too big and unflattering. Again, just my opinion.--Johnny Spasm (talk) 13:01, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

RE:Spencer Steedley[edit]

Yes I recently put some information on his page and I was there at both of those highlights of his career and I am his cousin and that stuff is right and I can't figure out why you would delete all of that when it is all true. OK, he wanted me to put that on there so I did for him, and he is wondering why people don't believe any of the stuff I recently put on there.--Lkeever2 (talk) 01:42, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Bullpen[edit]

First, thank you for the invite. I'm not really sure what would go into articles for the bullpen. I expanded Tommy Watkins' bullpen article a while back only to see it reverted a day later. Apparently, they wanted it to remain a stub. In any case, the main reason I contribute to wikipedia baseball articles and not the bullpen is that I was under the impression that bullpen articles were only intended to be brief overviews for anyone wanting to read about a player whose stats you were looking at on baseball-reference.--Johnny Spasm (talk) 09:26, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Minor league task force[edit]

Hey, I have noticed that you are interested in minor league articles. I thought that we might be able to combine out work in a task force at WP:WPBB. I think that with a task force we can strengthen articles on minor league players to dispel the myth that they are not notable no matter what. I recently made an article on Ollie Carnegie, a career minor league player from the 1930s, so if that's not proof there is notability in minor leaguers I don't know what is. Let me know if you're interested. Thanks! --Brian Halvorsen (talk) 02:49, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I completely understand why you have issues with the project. I have been fighting the few members who consider their narrow view a "consensus". But the only way to change that is to keep fighting it. Thanks anyway. --Brian Halvorsen (talk) 02:52, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Homar Rojas[edit]

There's an ongoing discussion related to the notability of players from the Mexican League going on at Wikipedia talk:Notability (sports), as an outgrowth of the discussion at the linked AFD. As such, your input would be welcome. -Hit bull, win steak(Moo!) 20:55, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Michael Jordan[edit]

That's the second time you removed the Baseball project banner from Talk:Michael Jordan without providing a reason. He played professional baseball; therefore, he's within the scope of the Baseball project. Why are you removing it? – Muboshgu (talk) 19:47, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

He doses not meet that wikiproject's notability guidelines. Kinston eagle (talk) 00:41, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
I do not recall that being a requirement for being part of the WikiProject, considering that he meets GNG and has a relationship with professional baseball. – Muboshgu (talk) 01:01, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Better source request for File:Firstbasketball.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Firstbasketball.jpg. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Gh87 (talk) 17:47, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

PROD's[edit]

Would have been nice if you gave some sort of explanation as to why you removed the PROD's.--Yankees10 00:00, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Would have been nice if you hadn't re-prodded in direct violation of WP:PROD rules. Kinston eagle (talk) 00:28, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Your gonna make me afd all those guys really? Did you deprod them just to make some point? Spanneraol (talk) 03:31, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
You seem to be unfamiliar with the rules of WP:PROD. You are not required to do anything at this point, but "If you still believe that the article needs to be deleted, or that the article should be deleted but with discussion, list it on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion." In addition, I am "not required, to ... (e)xplain why (I) disagree with the proposed deletion" Kinston eagle (talk) 15:27, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
You may not be required to but it is encouraged that you do, otherwise we may assume you are just trying to make a WP:POINT. Spanneraol (talk) 18:40, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Since you fail to give a reason i'm just gonna assume you removed them just to be a pain in the ass.--Yankees10 16:57, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

After you become more familiar with the rules on WP:PROD, you may wish to review the guidelines in WP:AGF. Kinston eagle (talk) 17:38, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
It's recommended that if you object to a PROD that you say why. What possible reason could you have to remove the PROD from Ryan Scoma? – Muboshgu (talk) 17:31, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
I would prefer not to give a reason as is my right under the WP:PROD rules. There are several reasons why this policy is in place which are discussed on the WP:PROD talk page. Kinston eagle (talk) 18:08, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Are you at least going to comment on any of the now ongoing AfD discussions? I presume that if you are declining PROD then you have a reason to keep or at least something to contribute to a deletion discussion. – Muboshgu (talk) 22:33, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
With regards to your remark here, when you de-prod a bazilion articles without bothering to explain why, you're probably going to get one or two right. But that doesn't really make up for the rest of our time that you have wasted. AutomaticStrikeout 03:41, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
As I should have guessed from your name, you missed the ball completely. When you prod "a bazilion articles" without seeking discussion or consensus you're probably going to get one or two wrong. Kinston eagle (talk) 13:19, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
I haven't prodded any of the articles and the majority of them have been deleted following an necessary AfD. Rather than making snide attacks, perhaps you should spend your time looking into whether or not the PRODed articles have been PRODed for a reason. AutomaticStrikeout 18:43, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
I had a feeling that you still wouldn't get it. Never mind. Just go on with your life. Kinston eagle (talk) 20:02, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Automatic Strikeout isn't quite right, but then again I still don't understand why you're de-PRODing every article. Discussions are good, as it saved Will Inman's article, and I also think Zech Zinicola is notable. However, what possible claim to notability could someone like Rodney Clabo have? You seem to be objecting to every single one whether there's reason to or not, and that's the cause of frustration from our end. – Muboshgu (talk) 01:00, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Copyright details[edit]

A few years back, you uploaded File:68sked.jpg as "public domain" because it's from a document that you physically own. That's not how copyright actually works.

We need to know if there is a copyright notice anywhere in the document, and -- if so -- exactly what it says. From that, we can tell if the document is actually public domain, or if it has to be fair use. DS (talk) 23:55, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Frank Washington[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

Non-notable minor league player. While admirable, simply being the first color-barrier-breaking player for an individual team/city does not confer notability.

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. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

List of Major League Baseball attendance figures[edit]

Consensus decisions at AfD are decisions made therein by the community, and are not open to unilateral reversal [2]. That includes outcomes such as "redirect", which, though technically not requiring administrative tools, can still be the consensus outcome of an AfD discussion. If you believe I made an error in interpreting the discussion's consensus, I'll be happy to discuss that with you, and if you still disagree you may request a deletion review. However, you may not unilaterally restore the article against the outcome. Seraphimblade Talk to me 20:09, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
