American Empire and Overseas Expansion of the United States[edit]

I think I understand exactly what you are getting at. Hopefully other people will understand as well. XinJeisan 00:50, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Please offer some explanation why you think it is a good idea to retitling the overseas american expansion article. It seems the new title is even more an example of editorializing then the previous title, and as you already noted was voted down http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:American_Overseas_Empire#Merger_Proposal.Thanks, Mrdthree 03:28, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Was a mistake, you can go ahead and revert it. I maintain my change to the American Empire article and template were justified though. - MichiganCharms 03:50, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

FAI League of Ireland[edit]

Please stop unecessarily adding the British flag to Irish articles.--Vintagekits 21:38, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

When Derry City FC stop being part of the League of Ireland, I'll be glad to. -MichiganCharms 21:41, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
I find it highly offensive that you refer to me as a political POV pusher of the FIFA 08 talk page and a troll on setanta'747's talk page. Please strike through those comments and apologies or I will refer them to relevent admin. In case you have noticed I have actually add the Ulster Banner to a number of articles over the past few days.--Vintagekits 07:46, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

If you look at the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup, and really any other international competition football articles you'll clearly see that while the Ulster Banner is not legally speaking the flag of Norther Ireland, it is consistently used both on wikipedia and in real life to refer to the Northern Ireland national and club football teams. I am Catholic and have a very republican view of Northern Ireland, but you clearly don't understand football. The St. George's Cross, which is now routinely used as the symbol of England's national and club football teams, was not always used. Fans of these teams used to use the British Flag in order to chear on their teams, but recently the flag of England specifically has become more widely used and thus has been adopted on wikipedia. I would assume that the same process happened in Northern Ireland. 65.101.45.228 13:44, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Cardiff history[edit]

Hi MichiganCharms,

I have been trying to put together a History of Cardiff for a while now, having created the Timeline of Cardiff history, but the lack of time is the problem. Have a look at my sandbox, if you want to copy the info that I have got so far please be my guest, I do not own any information on Wikipedia. Generally I find the Cardiff page a bit of a pain in the XXXX to be honest with the amount of edit wars going on. So I use my time on other local pages instead, which I enjoy. Seth Whales (talk) 20:17, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for that barnstar. Didn't notice it for a while because it went straight to my user page. Thanks, and I hope it does lead to a compromise rather than just another false dawn. It's almost tragic how many wasted hours have come about on the topic. All the best, Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 08:12, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Your question[edit]

This is a matter of opinion. Ultimately it comes down to what you like to see. The two games are quite different.

The key difference between union and league is that in league (like American football) the team in possession of the ball is guaranteed a number of attempts to move the ball before a turnover. In union, the two teams will spend a lot of time contesting possession and not moving the ball at all.

Some people think that this adds extra variety to the game others find it boring. League takes away the contest for possession and as a result the ball is in open play a lot more of the time which means more tries and more action. Critics of league would say that it is predictable and that teams follow a set pattern of play. IMO it just seems this way and there is a fair amount going on that isn't obvious to the newbie.

The other difference is that union is much more of a "football" game with much more tactical kicking and points scoring via kicked goals. If you are unfamiliar with the game, it can seem very bizarre that the crowd would applaud somebody kicking the ball out of play for what seems like no reason. This is why detractors call it "kick and clap". In league, the ball is usually only kicked on the last tackle like an American football team would punt on the 4th down and progress down the field is largely only by running with the ball.

Rugby union in my view is a bit hit-and-miss, the rules are quite complex and the ball spends a lot of time in various set pieces. It can be a great game when played with the right intention. Unfortunately England is reknown for playing conservative rugby whereby the ball spends a lot of time with the forwards in scrums and when possession is won it is often kicked away for a territorial gain. The way that it is played in Wales, France, New Zealand or Australia is more entertaining.

For overviews of the difference between the two rugbys and a comparison with American football see:-

I prefer league, when I talk to rugby union fans about their favourite game or try then they always describe something that involves few forward battles and the backs running with the ball i.e. much like rugby league. I would suggest looking at the highlights of some games on youtube and seeing which you prefer, just search on "rugby league" or "rugby union".

Rugby league is not played much in London and most Londoners would not really be aware of it. Talk about "rugby" and everybody will assume that you mean union. London has one team in the top flight Harlequins Rugby League and one semi-professional side London Skolars and a lot of amateur sides below that. (see http://www.londonrl.com/index.php ). For historical reasons, the sport is very new and is only starting to take off in London. You might find Rugby league in England to be useful for the background of the sport.

Rugby union is very much the sport of the suburbs and wasn't much of a spectator sport until fairly recently. The result of this is that clubs didn't have big stadia like soccer clubs and when the number of people wanting to watch increased dramatically they moved to soccer stadiums outside London.

The four "London" sides in the top division are London Irish, London Wasps, Saracens and Harlequins but only Quins play in London any more and quite a long way from the centre at that. Harlequins are the hosts of the rugby league side of similar name Harlequins Rugby League. There are quite a few other sides in the London area but AFAIK only London Welsh actually play in London.

Internationals are also played at Twickenham which the same area (but different stadium) where both Harlequins sides play.

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

WP:MUSIC[edit]

Failing to meet WP:MUSIC is sufficient for an article to be deleted through AfD or speedy. Many, many articles are turned into redirects for failing this guideline. Sourced information can be added to the band’s article, but a separate article is simply not necessary. Yes, it’s a guideline, but a guideline which he fails to satisfy. Nouse4aname (talk) 18:54, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

1. I do not have to prove he fails, you have to prove he passes. Does he individually satisfy any of the 12 criteria here? No. Does the band? yes. But notability is not inherited. Being a member of a notable band does not automatically mean that every member is also notable.

Note that members of notable bands are redirected to the band's article, not given individual articles, unless they have demonstrated individual notability for activity independent of the band, such as solo releases. Members of two notable bands are generally notable enough for their own article.

2. Failing WP:MUSIC is not a criteria to speedy delete (but is enough for deletion through AfD). Failing to assert notability as per WP:MUSIC is enough to speedy delete.

As he has not personally achieved any of the requirements at WP:MUSIC, he fails the notability requirements. Information can be included in the main article, but a separate article is not necessary, unless he has achieved notability for work outside of the band.

I added two seperate source that show his "birthplace" as Grant Town, WV. Including Scout.com one of the most reliable sources for any college football information. I hope we have this settled. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Garkeith (talkcontribs) 08:19, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I would drive to Grant Town (about 15 min from where I live) and take a picture of the giant sign on both ends of town that say the "BIRTHPLACE of Rich "Coach Rod" Rodriguez" but after he left the town removed them so they didnt have to deal with vandalisim. lol. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Garkeith (talkcontribs) 08:34, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi! A task force in WikiProject Michigan has been started about Detroit and its suburbs. Please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Michigan/Detroit WhisperToMe (talk) 08:06, 11 November 2009 (UTC)


University of Michigan[edit]

I left this entry on the discussion page in reply to your query...

My understandings, which may be wrong and should thus be researched, are as follows: 1) The university is not legally constituted as a system (as I understand it, this can be found in the establishing documents or constitution, but where, I do not know); 2) there is one President (Coleman); 3) the application process runs off of a common pool; 3)given that 98% of each is attributed to Ann Arbor anyway, the university reports research volumes and endowment as Ann Arbor only; 4) the university itself uses the phrase "satellite campuses" (also uses branch in some cases); 5) the budgeting is done through Ann Arbor and controlled by Ann Arbor. 74.64.126.54 (talk) 01:46, 18 December 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.64.126.54 (talk)

WP:British Empire[edit]

I added myself as a participant although sadly i saw that it was tagged as inactive and many of the particpants including the owner have since retired/quit. Shame.

Orphaned non-free image File:Birendra.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Birendra.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions. If you have a question, place a {{helpme}} template, along with your question, beneath this message.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.

Rose Report[edit]

I'm trying to get some feedback at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Northern Ireland#Rose Report on the "Rose Report" which has been listed for several years on WikiProject Northern Ireland as an article in need of creation. I've had the request for information up since 20 August without response. At least we should be able to identify what it is so we can see if it really belongs on that list. Even if you don't know what it is, saying so would be a help. If we get enough of those, that will at least answer the question about its importance. Thanks in advance. --Bejnar (talk) 02:59, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
