Liverpool Population[edit]

Hi you removed my contribs on the population of Liverpool City Region...I compared the Liverpool page with the nearby cities of Manchester and Leeds. Manchester has 3 sets of population figures in its intro paragraph, Leeds has 5!! Now you've removed the Liverpool City region population figures that leaves Liverpool with only 2. Firstly how is that fair? And secondly, don't you think this downplays the actual importance of Liverpool's urban area in comparison to these other similiar sized cities? How do you intend on amending the Leeds and Manchester pages? Richie wright1980 (talk) 16:14, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

County Palatine of Lancashire[edit]

I was just wondering whether or not places such as sale and saddleworth from The historic county boundaries of cheshire and yorkshire are in the county palatine or not,or are these in the county palatines of yorkshire and cheshire.or does the county palatine of lancashire cover all of greater manchester. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:31, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Explain please[edit]

Could you please lists The Districts that fall under the County Palatine of Lancashire if youd be so kind.If even you agree about Greater Manchester being in the palatine of Lancashire,this should be mentioned on greater manchester district pages,instead of just saying Historically a part of Lancashire all the time,as this makes it sound as if the places have got nothing to do with Lancashire at all,which if they are part of the county palatine of Lancashire clearly they do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:18, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Have a Grudge Against My Editing?[edit]

Send me an email: my personal email address is I attempt to post other people's personal information on Wikipedia, so why not send me an email at my personal email account?.Shannon bohle (talk) 14:50, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Pity it's not my email account. I posted no information about you so I'm not entirely sure where you got that from. If you will register items on the internet under your name and then attempt to skew wikipedia to reflect and source your own website then that's your own problem. I was happily not paying any heed until archivopedia was drawn to my attention. If you go around posting so much of yourself, regardless of your good intentions, someone will take advantage of that information to glean more. You even invited KathrynLybarger in an attempt to defend your actions - so if you must 'blame' someone for the fact you left your garden gate wide open then let it be yourself.

Mel Gibson[edit]

You didnt remove the Bounty reference from the Anglophobia section, i did, please remove this from the history. 07:37, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

The history cannot be changed (to my knowledge). You must have removed it with your last edit whilst I was also editing hence me not noticing.--Koncorde 15:59, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

West Ham external links[edit]

No problem, I'll trust your superior knowledge of the subject, though if its used as a general reference it should probably go in the References section rather than being a plain ol' external link. Oldelpaso 09:17, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

History of West Ham United F.C.[edit]

Hi mate,

The book sources I have used are the following:

  • Blows, Kirk & Hogg, Tony (2000). The Essential History of West Ham United. Headline. ISBN 0-7472-7036-8. 
  • Belton, Brian (2006). West Ham United Miscellany. Pennant Books. ISBN 0-9550394-4-4. 
  • Hogg, Tony (2005). Who's Who of West Ham United. Profile Sports Media. ISBN 1 903135 50 8. 

There a couple of useful websites too:

Happy history hunting!

--Spyrides 22:58, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello mate

Sounds cool. I've got a lot on at work so I've been unable to do much wiki-ing lately. However, I've just been bought a new book about Thames Ironworks which is absolutely awesome. If you get a chance to get hold of a copy, do so.

  • Powles, John (2005). Iron In The Blood: Thames Ironworks FC, the club that became West Ham United. Tony Brown. ISBN 1 899468 22 6. 

It has all of the London League and friendly appearance data that is still in existence, and offers some well researched history.

Take care

--Spyrides 20:43, 21 May 2007 (UTC)


Uh, excuse me, but how about getting your facts straight before you edit-summary attack? The citation that I was talking about was the Carter-Steinberg New York Times article that had been anchored in the lead as CartSteinTimes and was deleted without the deleter noticing that it was tagged later on - leaving a missing citation. The editor who did it apologized - it was not a big deal - so what exactly is your problem? As for my accidental caps - congratulations on your biting sarcasm. Must do your mother proud. Tvoz |talk 21:49, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Apology provided with alacrity, and accepted equally so. (And if you spend any time on that page - which I don't recommend to anyone sane - you'll understand why I didn't go back and unlock my accidentally locked caps when I noticed it and just went for it. I've spent the last few days between Imus and Kurt Vonnegut - and the two of them make the Beatles' "t" vs "T" seem like a walk along the Serpentine.) Nice to meet you, Koncorde. I'm usually nicer than the above might suggest - I can get you some testimonials.Tvoz |talk 22:03, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Leave it!!!![edit]

The 'leave it' comment has to do with areas of this article that I have added/edited.

A considerable amount of the statistics in this article were added by me, and the Trivia section in which the image appears was added by me.

200px is too small, 300px appears just right. If you want to size your pictures at 200px that's OK by me. But leave the ones I have added alone.

The statements were removed in the Adrian L. Peterson article because they are uncited. If you would like to add content, please add a source, otherwise it will be deleted per WP:BLP. Thanks. RyguyMN 22:45, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I may have been quick to add the information back in five minutes, but factual information should be sourced when possible. I don't believe it's overkill, it's a matter of having accurate information. Heck, some editor added to this very article that he returned a kick 109 yards! Should that be kept? Of course not. That's why I believe in citing information, especially for biographies. That's what it takes to make a good article, so that's the criteria I use. I stand by my practices. RyguyMN 00:19, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

James D. Watson[edit]

Hey, Koncorde. You partially reverted my edit to the James D. Watson article. I understand your reasoning, but you can't leave it in the state it's in. It uses unencyclopedic phrasing ("you should not..."), improperly begins a quote mid-sentence, and the whole thing is non-sequitur (one idea does not follow from another). Please see what you can do. Thanks. Robert K S (talk) 04:31, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Parts of the article are posted here for editing.[2] --Jagz (talk) 21:57, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Koncorde[edit]

Thankyou for backing me up on the West Ham Infobox header disagreement! Why it should take someone else to intervene before the constant reverting stops is beyond me. One thing though - in your edit summary you put "Sarumio is kind of right, but not in the place where he makes the edit. Have changed this based on other Premier League formats"

- How is your edit anything different to mine - also I was just trying to change it to the same format as all the other premiership clubs' infoboxes too! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sarumio (talkcontribs) 13:48, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Great Comment on the Criticism of Holocaust Deniers[edit]

Your comment about the German uniform hit the nail on the head. I was about to add my own comment (and still might) when I read your entry. You pretty much shut down that argument. I just want to add one more point, though: the color bars on the collars of some of the soldiers in the background. Although the picture is fuzzy, you can clearly make out that they do not extend to the ends of the collar, unlike the uniform's Russian counterpart. I also am fairly certain—although my knowledge on military uniforms is not exhaustive—that these color bars were unique to the uniforms of the Wehrmacht. -Gravinos ("Politics" is the stench that rises from human conflict.) 06:23, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback re Talk:St Helens, Merseyside#Confusion. The webpage I cited just happened to be the first authoritative one on Google.

Hi, thanks for your message.

Re the 'factors', I think the sources bring the two arguments toegether, but I'll have to check and get back to you.

Re 'killing them as they ran', I think this is as clear as description of what happened as possible. Would it be better in your view to say, 'pursued and killed'? The retreating Royalists were pursued into the town and killed without quarter. There's no delicate way to say it!

Brynduke2006 (talk) 14:42, 19 April 2011 (UTC)


I thought I was saying dormitory town as opposed to suburb. A dormitory town is of necessity a commuter town. I'm also puzzled by 'Northwood' ward. The only Northwood I know is one of the original three divisions of Kirkby. As to the percentages travelling, these should be related to the percentage of the population that is of working age, and/or actually working. If that 10% is 10% of each ward, and one considers the high percentage of retired people in the Southport and Formby area, that is high. It's unclear how that figure has been obtained, and exactly what it refers to. I'll read it again tomorrow (or later if I have to take off to Leeds or Sheffield (or even Liverpool...)).

West Ham Dream Team[edit]

Ok I fully accept your explaination regarding Trevor Brooking and the Number 10 shirt. I suppose my bias took over, and just because I and maybe some others belive he "owns" the number 10 shirt it is not always so. I also admit the first time round I didnt really see the bulid up statement of, in the 2003 book....! or that 500 fans were quizzed!. I orginally thought it was a single persons view and opinion.

Re:Arsenal Template[edit]

First of all, Bellerin did not play in the Premier League. He never did in his life. Akpom had a few minutes as a sub when Giroud got injured, that still does not qualify him for the list. The way the template works is like how the squad list on the Arsenal page works... the players must be listed by Arsenal themselves in the first-team section of (Here is that list by the way). On the page it can be clearly seen that Akpom and Bellerin are not on the list and thus should not be on wikipedias as well. End of story. As for Myron Fernandes, he is listed as a first-team player for Dempo S.C. which can be clearly seen here. Again, end of story. If you have any more questions then please don't be afraid to ask. If you disagree with me still then feel free to take it up with the folks at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 03:49, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Lead for article "Rapid Transport"[edit]

I note you have reverted my changes to the lead paragraph of this article.

The problem I have with this article is that, in the opening paragraph, it only mentions the term "Rapid Transit". Rapid Transit is a North American term. It is not necessarily understood outside North America. The more common terms are Metro and Underground. These terms need mentioning in the opening sentence. They were in an earlier version of this article, but have somehow disappeared.

In the "terminology" paragraph it currently says "Metro is the most common term for underground rapid transit systems used by non-native English speakers" I contend that "metro" is the most common term for English language speakers, at least outside Noth America. Also many systems (prime case London) are known as "Underground".

As proof, read the article. There are more systems described as "xxx metro" than as "xxx Rapid Transit", and there is the linked article List of metro systems. You may claim "Original version" rights to call this article "Rapid Transit", which is a foreign term to many English speakers, but at least acknowledge the other common terms in the lead.

Reverting vandalism and honours[edit]

Getting into a group stage or even a knock-out stage of a tournament isnt an honour. And neither is restore it reverting vandalism. Murry1975 (talk) 21:47, 27 September 2015 (UTC)


Your "source" for the trophies is one of the most unreliable I've seen. It isn't a club, a media or governing body's document. Unless you can provide one, the information can't stand. And what do you mean the club's site is "incomplete"? What a ridiculous notion. Every club lists their full honours on their website, your refusal to accept that any club, media or governing body's list is "complete" is ridiculous and is solely done to get your point of view across. When there is no credible mainstream source to define something, you use the closest thing to that, which here is the club website. Otherwise you don't say it at all.

On top of everything, the competitions were unofficial. This is reflected by them not being listed on any club websites and even CSKA Sofia's wiki page where this is noted. With no physical trophy count to prove your claims, they must be deleted and restored to the most reliable piece of evidence that lists the trophy haul. Which is the club website. Davefelmer (talk) 21:45, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Bulgarian Cup[edit]

"Non-official winners" need a separate page and add to the Defunct competitions of Football in Bulgaria. What do you think ?--Alexiulian25 (talk) 19:52, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Cup of the Soviet Army (1946–1982) - Official tournament.

In 1981 they also created "Bulgarian Cup" - to be the country name in the name of the cup, for 2 unofficial editions. Practically 2 editions of Cup were played, Cup of the Soviet Army 1981 and 1982 - Official and "Bulgarian Cup" with not all division teams.

In 1983 they swap the names Cup of the Soviet Army became unofficial and Bulgarian Cup Official, this time Cup of the Soviet Army (1983–1990) with lots of low division teams and the big 2 : Levski and CSKA Sofia.

In 1983 Cup of the Soviet Army changed the name in "Bulgarian Cup" - Official tournament, and Cup of the Soviet Army (1983–1990) become unofficial till the end of the communist era, in 1990.

The RSSSF has the neutral information, and we should follow it, instead of Levski Sofia official page. Did you understand now ? Can you write there this in correct English ? Thanks.--Alexiulian25 (talk) 09:06, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Of course on their website (PFC Sofia - Levski Sofia) they will admite that they won 26, because they can write anything in their advantage, but it is obvious that those competition was unofficial. Check the Cup Winners Cup qualification teams from 1981-82 for the next season, and you will see is not Levski Sofia involved. Bulgarian Cup (1981–1982) with the 1981 winner CSKA Sofia and 1982 winner Levski Sofia are not official. The real winner are 1981- Botev Plovdiv and 1982- Lokomotiv Sofia --- teams who qualified for Cup Winners Cup.--Alexiulian25 (talk) 00:57, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

You've done a great job making the lead more relevant. Perhaps the second paragraph could be merged with the one after, as it's only two sentences. Lemonade51 (talk) 17:57, 18 January 2016 (UTC)


I have looked at the source you mentioned more closely and it does list the sofia championship wins. However, it still doesnt list two of the soviet army cup wins, which the RSSF and club website sources dont show either. so those two must go and they must be recognised as 4 time winners of that cup and not 6, unless sourcing to prove it can be found. also, in any case the sofia championship is a regional trophy so to mention they've won 70 trophies is pretty misleading as that is not what anyone has said. The club do not confirm that total so what should be done is if a number is absolutely a must in the intro, it should be the number of total national titles (60 after removing the 2 unsourced cups).

If you continue your edits to the Liverpool intro I will have no choice but to report you for vandalism. Your edits are not making any justifiable contribution to the article and you are not only reverting my edits but reverting the edits of others on a regular and persistent basis which is now vandalism. The current version is logical in that it builds up from the city to the county to the city region and ends with the Liverpool/Birkenhead metro area. This is a logical transition from the smallest area to the largest area and it is quite clear that Liverpool and its surrounding areas are included in that. I have no idea what your agenda is here but I believe you are politically driven to undermine the city, its status and its population at any given opportunity. Please desist or you will be reported.

Recent Edits[edit]

It seems as though you have an issue with my style of editing. While I am not an experienced editor, I have made a strong effort to follow and abide by the conventions and rules of wikipedia. Perhaps I am missing something, it is certainly possible. As far as SRS is concerned, I might suggest that you visit the subreddit when you have some time, and you will see for yourself the toxicity I was talking about. I understand that the subreddit itself can't be used as a reliable source, however it might give you a different perspective if you actually saw the level of hate and venom occurring there. Regarding the Rolling Stone article, I don't take something like sexual assault lightly, and I don't feel it is something that should be joked about, minimized or misquoted. That is why I have always tried to support my edits with direct quotes from reliable sources. There are enough vandals and troublemakers on wikipedia, I am not one of them, and I don't believe you are either. I am a little confused as to why you are specifically reverting my edits, when I have made so few. It's entirely your perogative of course, but we are actually on the same team in that we are both working to improve this project. (talk) 03:41, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Sourcing re: Pizzagate[edit]

You need to read the sources. The claims are false and have been widely debunked as meritless. Policy and common sense requires that we describe false, defamatory claims about living people as what they are: false. As the cited article from The New York Times states, None of it was true. While Mr. Alefantis has some prominent Democratic friends in Washington and was a supporter of Mrs. Clinton, he has never met her, does not sell or abuse children, and is not being investigated by law enforcement for any of these claims. ([3]) Reliable sources are unanimous in describing the claims this way. If you revert again, I will request administrative intervention. You're a longtime editor and should know better. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 10:49, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Info box help please?[edit]

Hello Konkorde,

I tried to add to the infobox of Prescot: Historic County - Lancashire, the same as can be seen on the Liverpool page, but despite copying the same format it doesn't seem to work! Please may I ask you to tell me how to add to the infobox part of the page?

Also, I am a great supporter of the historic counties of the UK so I am interested to know why in your info box it states you were born in St Helens Lancashire (in 1980, after the 1974 botch up) yet on the main page it states St Helens Merseyside? Would you not consider stating Lancashire throughout the page?

Kind regards, Andrew Donaldson. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DonaldsonAC (talkcontribs) 21:12, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Jorge Paixão[edit]

Hello there, from Portugal,

thanks for your input in this article, I have made some more adjustments in the storyline (i.e. trying to avoid repetition of words in same line ("appointed", etc); one of your corrections left the storyline in the following display: "but reached the semi final of the 2013–14 Taça de Portugal of the Taça de Portugal", surely I can correct that; please let's try to avoid paragraphs of only one line), surely we can reach a compromise. A doubt: regarding your note "Also please watch your 'tone' on edit summaries" in your penultimate summary, do you mean my previous summaries BEFORE your cleanup or my last one? Because the latter was as unassuming as can be, the others were not I admit it, but you can surely agree with me the user's actions were very similar to those of a downright vandal. If not, that's OK too.

Edit warring at Rapid transit[edit]

You and the other party are both warned per the result of a complaint at the edit warring noticeboard. If either of you reverts the article again before you get a consensus in your favor on the talk page you may be blocked. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 19:32, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Ed, bit of a pointless exercise that. The IP contributes nothing, evidently has a bee in its bonnet about something or other to do with monorail, I revert pointless additions that contribute nothing (misused citation needed tags), then we 'both' get warned. That's like me tidying up after a puppy and both getting our noses rubbed in it. Koncorde (talk) 20:00, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
Nobody is forcing you to remove the 'citation needed' tags. The easiest case for an admin to handle is when only one party is edit warring. By keeping up with the IP blow for blow, you prevent that pattern from occurring and you eliminate the chance for a closure that would favor your position. EdJohnston (talk) 00:41, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
So, to just random CN across an article with no explanation as to what is required is okay, and so long as if they start the edit-a-thon, the person clearing up their crap will always be in the wrong - so how is it likely to be found in anyone other than the IP's favour? This isn't / wasn't an edit war of content. It was a basic failure to follow WP:CITENEED when just tagging stuff they personally didn't like, then resorted to Admin noticeboard rather than do the right thing.
In the end I have about 3/5ths of fuck all regard for Admin processes as it stands, and this is yet another example of why it's pointless (even by the standards of 3RR policy). You think a likely dynamic IP cares about a 'warning'? They didn't care about any other protocols other than to stir the 3RR shitpot for an established user. Another case of tail wagging the dog.

Thanks for your help. I will try WebCite. On another note, could you move the article Türkiye Futbol Şampiyonası to "Turkish Football Championship" for me?

Old Castle Swifts F.C.[edit]

Hi Koncorde, I'm having a trouble finding a source for the bit on the West Ham United F.C. page that mentions the OCS colours ("The predecessors of Thames Ironworks, Old Castle Swifts FC, played in pale blue shirts, white shorts and claret socks as early as 1892"). Looking through the revision history, it was originally added by an IP in 2011. I can't find anything in my books or in contemporary sources to support this. The colours were added with the infobox on the main OCS page in 2007 by @Spyrides but he's not sure now where this came from (and I can't see any mention in the references added at the same time). The History of West Ham United F.C. page states that "The Castle Swifts colours were re-used on several occasions by the Thames Ironworks team as an alternative to their traditional Oxford Blue kit.", apparently referencing Iron in the Blood. However, I can't see this mentioned in the book at all (as an aside, I notice the page numbers are wrong for many of the IITB refs on the History page. They appear to be using the page numbers for the sample chapter, rather than the book itself). I did mention this to John and he thought it was OK but hasn't found a source for it. The only reliable source I've found actually contradicts this and suggests the OCS kit was similar to the early 'Oxford blue' TIW kit.[4] Everything else I've found seems to be basing their info on WP.

You might have noticed that I recently corrected a long-standing error in the 'Aston Villa kit story'. Whether it's true or not is highly debatable anyway, but the story came from Brian Belton's Miscellany book. Unfortunately, the wording is a bt ambiguous, so where it says "My grandfather, Jim Belton, told me that Charlie Dove, a local man who played for Old Castle Swifts, Thames Ironworks and West Ham, got the kits 'cheap' from his father William", this was taken to mean Dove's father, rather than Jim Belton's. This can be confirmed as Brian also mentions William in his War Hammers book (I'm also quite sure I've read in one book that Dove's father's name was George).

As a result of this issue, we can easily confirm that anything that mentions "William Dove" has based their info on (previously incorrect) information from WP so would need to be disregarded as a source. I'm not sure about that WH ref, but if we can't find anything else, I guess we'd have to run with that.. Nzd (talk) 17:21, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

@Nzd, Old Castle Swifts definitely played in the sky blue shirts, white shorts and claret socks combo, this was drawn from contemporary images at the time and there used to be a website that had information about Donald Currie that said something like "the colours of the house flag were used for the works football team" or something similar. Spartacus is probably the source of the William Dove error (I have certainly repeated it based on whatever faulty source it originated with) unless a William Dove did actually also exist (grammatically it is less than ideal, summarised as "Jim Belton told me that Charlie Dove got the kits 'cheap' from his father William" is no clearer and it's obvious why the error was made).
I would have to say that the West Ham website looks like a mismatch of Wikipedia information, I would be wary of using any 'official' website as a reliable source. The blue kit definitely came with Arnold Hills, as it was also cited and used for his cycling and rowing teams etc (there was another internet page about him from the Vegetarian society and another from some page with newpaper clippings about the Memorial Ground saying as much).
Page numbering would surprise me, I own the book so wouldn't make a great deal of sense. Possibly someone assumed the preview copy matched the real thing and (for brevity and ease of access) used it. Or possibly at some point I actually tided up the references to the actual book in error but not the page numbers (which is possible if I haven't actually looked but known it was true when doing a find and replace marathon).
I will do a search, but I think unless it is a controversial claim, the presence is relatively inoffensive but would be nice to find a good source (but a local newspaper is probably the only thing that may be on record). Koncorde (talk) 19:28, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Koncorde. The Belton/Dove error definitely originated on WP as I've had conversations with Spyrides about this, but I agree it was a very understandable error. John Simkin (of Spartacus Educational) concurs with the OCS kit colours on his blog, except that he's got red socks, which I would say was more likely (the 1897-98 TIW kit colours, which are said to have originated with OCS, used scarlet socks).[5] There has been some debate at WP:RSN as to whether Spartacus Educational is considered reliable. Personally, I think it's fine, although I'd prefer to see his sources. I think the history articles on the West Ham site are usually written by John Helliar so should be reliable and I wouldn't have thought he'd be using WP as a source. I agree, though, that that bit doesn't sound right. I've sent Steve Marsh an e-mail to see if he has anything. I haven't seen any photos at all of OCS so if you come across any I'd love to know. Thanks again, Nzd (talk) 13:23, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Was the article you were referring to this Kumb article? BTW, I didn't mean to imply that the Dove/Belton error was down to you (it wasn't Face-wink.svg). Nzd (talk) 01:05, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
@Nzd I don't think so, but it's possible that Grants sources were the same ones that I could see online at the same time (2006 is approximately when I was working on chunks of West Ham articles). I notice another KUMB article has the old kit image, but it's credited as being a Thames Ironworks team, so I may be mis-remembering the images I can recall. Koncorde (talk) 02:45, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. That does state that the OCS kit was blue shirt, white shorts and "scarlet stockings", mentioning a newspaper report but I'm buggered if I can find it. It's most probably right, but I've failed to find a single reliable source to back it up. The linked forum post has some interesting titbits on the TIW/WH kits but is mostly 22 pages of frustration (I trawled through it last night). One thing I did glean though was the history of wrongness and the astonishingly low threshold of proof on Historical Kits! Steve Marsh has sent me a few other bits so I definitely have all the info I need to update the TIW/WH articles. I think what we have is mostly right, if a little incomplete. The Belton story is still bugging me though. Even discounting the Dove misinterpretation, it's still probably made up, and I'd love to find a decent rebuttal in an RS.
