Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 23:31, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

More football coaches[edit]

Hello! I see you have an interest in College Football in Pennsylvania. Perhaps you can help me with some articles in my workspace--I have several Geneva College coaches that need some more sources. Please review here and feel free to be bold and make changes!--Paul McDonald (talk) 19:14, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

College football[edit]

Pennsylvania Penguin, hello. I've noticed some of your recent edits related to college football. Thanks for getting the article on John Moorehead (American football coach) started. Just wanted to touch base with you about Template:Infobox college coach. I've made some recent changes to improve the template and eliminate some of the ambiguity and in efficiency therein. First, the Player and Coach trigger fields are no longer needed. Also, please note that a few of the fields (Title, College, Conference, CurrentRecord, Contract) should only be populated for current coaches. On Otto Wagonhurst, for example, his playing career at Penn should be noted in the Years and Team field. College should be left blank. Thanks and let me know if you have any thoughts about the template. Jweiss11 (talk) 12:53, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanksgiving games pre-1920[edit]

Hey, thanks for adding the pre-1920 pro football section to the NFL on Thanksgiving Day article. I've added some of the New York ones to it and I think it makes a nice addition to illustrate the game's pre-NFL traditions. J. Myrle Fuller (talk) 19:53, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Columbus Panhandles[edit]

Hello Pennsylvania Penguin. I have been working on the Columbus Panhandles article for about a week. I noticed you expanded the article quite greatly, but you never added any references to it. I am currently working on bringing the article up to GA standards, and I was wondering if you could help by putting in citations (I already have the [citation needed] tags located where references should go). If so, that would be a great help! Thanks and have a great day.
Michael Jester (talk · contribs) 07:40, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Awesome! Thanks. Ever since I saw an article in my local paper about the Akron Pros, I'll been fascinated by the early era of pro football.

Pro Football Articles[edit]

Penguin,

You're right; I should have never reverted your information, as it's very contributing to Wikipedia. There's not many users dedicated to editing old football articles on here. I had some real-life stuff going on, so that was the reason I did what I did. I should have went to your talk page about the page numbers thing. Thanks for being nice about the situation, and thanks for all the work you have done on the football articles. Hope to be working with you in the future!

Season renames[edit]

Be careful with renaming old seasons like that. A number of the older leagues from that time period only played in one year. I am not sure if that is the case with the ones WPHL ones I noticed you moving but you might want to check on that as the title would be incorrect if they did only play in one year. -DJSasso (talk) 13:30, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

1903-06 Massillon Tigers / Bob Shiring[edit]

My great-grandfather, Bob Shiring, played center for the Massillon Tigers from 1903-06. He was from the Pittsburgh area and was one of four "ringers" paid to play by Massillon. He also played for the J.F. Lalus Athletic Club in Pittsburgh in 1899-1900, Homestead Library & Athletic Club in 1901, and Pittsburgh Stars/Pros in 1902. I have inherited a collection of original photos from these teams and and have collected other photos and articles. Sports Illustrated ran a story in the 2/6/12 issue called The First Super Bowl on the big game in 1906 between Canton and Massillon. I helped the writer with the story and SI gave me a photo credit for the picture postcard of the Canton team that I provided them for the article. I am working on some related projects and would enjoy connecting with anyone interested in sharing information, asking questions, etc. Please feel free to contact me at gkficery@comcast.net.

Template:Infobox NFL player[edit]

Greetings, Pennsylvania Penguin.

Please do not convert instances of Template:Infobox NFL player to Infobox gridiron football person when used in the biographies of current or former NFL players. Infobox NFL player is the correct infobox template for all NFL players, past and present. Infobox gridiron football should only be used for past and present CFL players. Thanks.

Bankers colours[edit]

Hi. I'm interested to know if you've got a source at hand for the team colours of WPHL ice hockey club Pittsburgh Bankers?

Thanks.

Fairhop (talk) 20:11, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

To answer your question, it was pretty much a guess - but one that is highly probable, based on science and history.

A buddy of mine has done work on colorizing black and white films. From his past experience, he believes that the colors of the "$" symbol on their uniforms for the 1908 team was green, while the uniform itself is most likely black. We can still be wrong but the odds are in favor. We are also looking to see if the team colors changed from year to year, which was common for the era.

However to help justify this fact, we will be reviewing a ton of newspaper game accounts of WPHL games from the Pittsburgh Press this coming winter. This ties into a few of our other early sports projects. Most accounts of the games from this era whether it be hockey, football, basketball or baseball usually refer to team by their team colors.

Thanks. --Pennsylvania Penguin (talk) 14:20, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I've done a bit of research on that myself, through the Pittsburgh Press newspapers, that's why I asked the question. So far I've established that the Pittsburgh Lyceum played in Maroon and White, Pittsburgh Pirates in Blue and White, and the Pittsburgh Athletic Club in Crimson and White. It's all in this link below.

"Great hockey to be played in this city" The Pittsburgh Press, November 24, 1907.

This link says Pittsburgh Keystones played in Blue and White.

"Keystones to take a trip" The Pittsburgh Press, January 10, 1904.

Haven't found anything so far on the Bankers, Victorias and Duquesne.

The Duquesne team wore red and black. I know this because the Duquesne Country and Athletic Club was also one of the very first professional football teams, and was supported by the same club that supported the Pittsburgh Duquesne. If you read some of the links that are cited on the page from the Professional Football Researchers Association, the team was referred to as the red and blacks. So its 99.9% probable that the club's hockey team wore the same colors.--Pennsylvania Penguin (talk) 12:49, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
