International Escort[edit]

How's it hanging? Still travelling the world, I see! Is Kenya on your "to visit" list? If not, do you reckon your work (whatever it is you do [my money's on international escort, btw]) could take you there in the future? Anyway, here's some questions for you. Do you reckon expansion is happening with the FFA looking shaky as shit, thanks to FIFA? If so, where's your money on? Do you reckon with Cairns FC/Far North Queensland FC going under, that North Queensland United/Northern Fury will be reprieved from relegation? Ditto Subiaco AFC, what competition do you reckon they'll be in 2019? Good to see that you're back from your month or two off. Looking forward to our next disagreement soon! Hahaha - J man708 (talk) 13:35, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

or I could be a Geologist. So where I'm hanging is at the Cortez Gold Mine in Nevada for the next month; Kenya is on the 'visit as a tourist' list, and this may happen when I next go to north-eastern DRC (a gold mine in the Haut-Uele province) - i went there in January and have to go back soon, but wont at the moment until the current situation with the Ebola virus in Kivu is resolved.
expansion should still go ahead, I'm only worried the main 'casualty' from the looming impasse will be a short ban by FIFA which will affect the Asian Cup or the Matildas. A Sydney team will get in provided Gallop still has enough power. I do laugh at renewed calls for a second division with Prom/Rel every time an A-League club is beaten in the FFA Cup. Most A-League clubs lose money - SIGNIFICANT MONEY - each and every year. . . . I think Tony Sage has said he's lost $17M since he bought it !!! No way the A-League owners will tolerate the instant death which would come from Relegation. Unfortunately we have so many supporters who pretend we are just like England, Scotland and Italy in terms of geography, population, and competing sports.
Subi arent dead yet, they might face a two-leg match against Forrestfield first, but we wont know that for at least a couple of weeks or more. I'll be happy if they are relegated, as they were initially promoted by a backroom deal and not by performance. Matilda Maniac (talk) 21:49, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
You know, I think I actually did know that you were a Rock Lobster (probably from the last time I enquired). Can you imagine the uproar of us being banned by FIFA? We'd be the laughing stock of the larger Asian footballing community... And that's saying something. I hate to admit it, but the most likely choices for expansion are Team 11 from Melbourne and South-West-North-East Sydney or whatever they're called this week. I just really would love to see your favourite team Woolongong Wolves back in the comp. Tony Sage has lost $17m on it? Shit, that's impressive that he still continues to foot the bill for it. I'm pretty thankful that Adelaide United have new backers, it's nice to see some international names come in the pre-season, rather than free agents signed at the January transfer window for next to nothing.
I've done some research and it seems as though Subiaco AFC were prepared to throw Joondalup United under the bus, when it came to their relegation. To be prepared to fight it in court under the premise that Joondalup United didn't meet promotion criteria (when several of the NPL teams also failed said criteria) is a bit... Hmmm... I mean, I get the concept of their thoughts, but I really don't agree with it. You'd think if they put as much of a fight into their season as they did with legalities, they would've avoided relegation in the first place, huh? The irony isn't entirely lost on me. - J man708 (talk) 05:00, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Bye, bye Subiaco AFC - FINALLY !!! Matilda Maniac (talk) 18:04, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

thank you for your edit[edit]

[1] flag symbol is important as many individuals do not know that the DRC was Zaire before, hence this is a significant change, should you feel differently please take to talk page for consensus, thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 11:49, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

  • thank you for your help on the Ebola articles--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 14:21, 27 August 2018 (UTC)


Hey there! Thanks for your contributions on the 2018 AFC U-16 Championship page. I think that we should keep the links mentioned above Australia,

  • Because while reading the article, if the person sees the link over the particular year then it is more likely that he will get to know about the particular fact. If the link dangles around at other places than people don't notice it that much and thus the use of the link or note is thus not met.
  • In the previous pages(I am talking about the good and well maintained pages), the same format of linking has been used, and I think that it gives more meaning in that way.
  • I think that the reason due to which you have removed the linking has not been mentioned in the Overlinking page. If possible we can have a discussion about the issue and can take the action likewise.--Anbans 585 (talk) 23:03, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your explanation. I also see that you are one of the more common editors of this page, and are frequently editing to preserve your preferred format. Be mindful of the fact that Wikipedia is for all and no-one 'owns' an article or series of articles despite the frequency of their posts. If you cannot see that 10 identical links in the same line in a table is not within the spirit of WP:OVERLINKING, I see no point in trying to further a discussion with you on this matter. Matilda Maniac (talk) 00:30, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, if I said anything bad, I am just here for a discussion. Yes, Wikipedia is for everyone, and thats what we love about it. It's not that I have a preferred format or something, it's just that I think it is better if all the articles have the same style of formatting, in this way those articles look more cleaner and presentable. Please give a read to my "Point no. 1". Sorry if I troubled you, though I think that differences can be met by having a healthy discussion. It's not that I am forcing my way out to start a edit war or something, like many editors do. Very sorry for the trouble.--Anbans 585 (talk) 00:53, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Noted. No apology is necessary. and thanks for your hundreds and hundreds of football edits this year. Matilda Maniac (talk) 02:26, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Do tell me if you need help in any article, old or new. Always happy to help.--Anbans 585 (talk) 07:02, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

A bit of help[edit]

Hey Matilda Maniac! I needed a bit of help in some ongoing discussion, the other person and I have have had a dispute over what the Philippines team on the 2018 Bangabandhu Cup should be called, should it be called Philippines or Philippines 'B'. Can you act as a moderator on this issue. The discussion done so far can be viewed on the page's talkpage, my talkpage and on User talk:FilFootyGuy. Also it will be very helpful if you would be able to involve some other editors as moderators, the discussion is currently been done on FilFootyGuy's talk page. If you agree to help, then do ping me here and I will beforehand add the info on his talk page, about your involvement as a moderator.--Anbans 585 (talk) 01:58, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

2018 Kivu Democratic Republic of the Congo Ebola virus outbreak[edit]

please take any potential edits to talk page for consensus on 2018 Kivu Democratic Republic of the Congo Ebola virus outbreak , thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 21:57, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

You must consider to stop behaving as if you OWN this article. Far better to discuss changes made first here at article talk page, or even here at my talk page, rather than firstly REVERTING and sending these messages that convey Ownership of the article and some sort of moral editorial high ground. Good form and process for dealing with vandals and disruptors; poor form for dealing with good faith edits. Matilda Maniac (talk) 22:02, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
Hello. This is a message to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions, such as the edit you made to 2018 Kivu Democratic Republic of the Congo Ebola virus outbreak, did not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at our welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make test edits, please use the sandbox for that. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. please seek consensus in the future for article indicated Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 22:14, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
No point contributing here where consensus means whether you agree with it or not. I suggest that if you are going to ask me to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines then you also self-examine with respect to WP:OWNERSHIP.Matilda Maniac (talk) 00:17, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Results of current A-League season[edit]

Do you think you'd have time to have a look at the results table on the article and fix up in the second half which games aren't being played and should be greyed out? (I just copied from last season and don't really have time to go through it rn). --SuperJew (talk) 17:12, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I see that you have edited Melbourne City FC (W-League) in the past 12 months. I've started a discussion on the talk page about criteria for notable former players. I would really appreciate your input. Thanks! Mightytotems (talk) 11:04, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Sykes retirement[edit]

Hey :) I saw this edit. As far as I understand, Sykes only returned temporarily to be an injury replacement player. Not sure that cancels her retirement, no? --SuperJew (talk) 16:14, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

I consider it cancels her retirement, which is why I made the edit. An article linked to the club even mentions she is out of retirement - describing her as a Formerly retired star forward. It's not for a single match either, its for at least 1/2 a season. Matilda Maniac (talk) 22:00, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
Okay. I was wondering as in she still retired. Now she's back, but she was retired. Maybe it's just a semantics thing anyway :) --SuperJew (talk) 22:23, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
Who knows if she will keep going - we can find another referecne in a couple of month that lists her re-retirement, and it would go into 2018–19 in Australian soccer, unless she gets a taste for un-retiring and ends up like Nellie Melba. Matilda Maniac (talk) 22:29, 26 December 2018 (UTC)


Thanks for the shaming :) In my defence I did have an exam today in anatomy, so I felt I deserved a little rest haha --SuperJew (talk) 19:25, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

2019 Kirin Cup[edit]

Hey mate, where'd you get the info about the 2019 Kirin Asia Challenge Cup? I can't find anything about it online. --SuperJew (talk) 14:56, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Well, actually I didnt. Look carefully i only added details about the 2019 Kirin Challenge Cup in March, for which I have just added source from; I also looked online for the Asia Challenge Cup - My status is : "I can't find anything about it online in English." So is it speculative ? I think if you have time AND ARE NOT STILL DOING EXAMS you could research. I am going on an extended Wikibreak myself now (perhaps for a year), so i will probably only be looking at Wikipedia from a readers perspective, and only editing vandalism or minor copyedit. Good luck. Matilda Maniac (talk) 04:13, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
I am doing exams and you're totally right that I'm not supposed to be on here rn. 😳 --SuperJew (talk) 09:33, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
