Edited according to [1]

It's a good rule of thumb to not edit war, ever, over what another user does on his/her talkpage. You run a big risk of being seen as petty or frivolous when you do that, and the 3RR might be enforced against you instead. The removal of warnings on one's own page is "discouraged", not outlawed, and the 3RR is usually not enforced against such edits. Anyway, he removes a warning, that means he's seen it. There's no need to keep shoving it in his face. Please leave his page alone. Bishonen | talk 00:49, 12 August 2006 (UTC).

Re: Serbia kits[edit]

I found pictures of the new Nike kit on the Football Association of Serbia website. The English language version has not been updated, but you can see the images in the latest news section of the Serbian language version. There is also another English language-only website that reports on South-Eastern European football, and you see a news article there as well JadranSport. --Lowg 16:55, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

There is no photo recently that confirms the socks, but there is a old image that they did released before the kit was finalized that also represents this ... another article on JadranSport. There was also an article on UEFA.com that confirmed this as well as the white away kit, but there are no images there. --Lowg 18:45, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Elo ratings history on national football team infobox[edit]

Hi, saw your addition of the optional Elo rating history fields to Template:Infobox National football team. Good concept, and personally I support Elo ratings over FIFA ratings generally. But - do you know of an actual source for this data? The Elo ratings site itself seems only to have the maximum rating for each team, with no date, and nothing about the lowest rating. -- Wantok 10:18, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi. I plan to take each team page, with all the matches and the relative rankings, grep each team line, take the highest and lowest ranking, and publish them. I shall add the first values soon.--Kwame Nkrumah 13:00, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

www.soccer-europe.com[edit]

Actually, in the user's discussion page at User talk:Soccer-europe.com, it says:

Soccer-europe.com 20:39, 10 March 2006 (UTC)To all authors : Please make sure my site is credited whenever my images are used as follows :
© http://soccer-europe.com

I realize I neglected to include the copyright symbol, but it's clear that the user wants the site credited every time images from the site are used. Ytny 00:26, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

I agree that it's not that important to have pictures for footballer pages, but personally, I'd prefer to have an image with a copyright notice than to have users keep putting up unfree images they find on websites. To me, that's the lesser of the two evils. But if you want to take the pictures down, I won't have a problem with it. Ytny 00:32, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but I think User talk:Soccer-europe.com is the best place to start, since the page is devoted to discussing images from soccer-europe.com, and maybe add a link to the discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football? Ytny 00:46, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Kit Colours[edit]

I got the kit colours of: http://www.national-football-teams.com/php/land.php?landid=264, but I'm not sure if they are right or not. - Nick C 16:15, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
