US Open Cup[edit]

To User talk:Fifty7,
Thank you for having interest in editing US Open Cup pages. However you did make changes without response from a discussion. A short while ago User:Quidster4040 made some needed additions to the US Open Cup however he made some errors so I directed him to this discussion which is quite old and had no other contributors. I waited for Quidster4040 to either respond or take action. He did neither so I went ahead and made the corrections. I am aware of what the ussocer and the archives site say, however this information is not updated and based on limited sources. Some articles that were written in recent times about historical events will refer to say the "1948 Open Cup" for example but this is a retroactive use of the term for the modern reader to relate to. Libro0 (talk) 00:44, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

I am going to make changes and correct three of the tournaments, those being 1948, 49, and 50. I will include references to validate those changes. If you have any input, questions, comments, or suggestions please come by forums.thecup.us. They will be glad to hear anything and you can get up to speed on what has been covered. Libro0 (talk) 00:23, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

I noticed that you changed some of the tournament titles from concluding year(ex 1925) to season(ex 1924-25). My issue with this is standardization. There should be consistency with all the other articles. You cited your reason as the tournament began in the previous year. This is true, however you have to understand that it is true of all the tournaments. I believe you based your changes on the games that are presented on the brackets. Those just happen to be what is available here on WP. Most districts typically started play in Oct/Nov. So if you wanted to change them all to season format it would be okay. Personally, I would prefer concluding year but either way it is best if they are all the same. Libro0 (talk) 05:06, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Exactly. I will begin that soon. Quidster4040 (talk) 20:22, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Fox Soccer Channel Gold Cup[edit]

Hey. I'm just wondering what your source is that Fox Soccer Channel is only covering USA matches, and not USA group stage matches plus all QF, SF, and F matches. Because you made an edit to the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup page but did not bother to cite it. Smartyllama (talk) 18:36, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

US soccer champions[edit]

Greetings. I've noticed your work around the US soccer articles, and I wanted to commend you, particularly on the history aspects of the subject. I also wanted to tell you that I'm presently working on a large-scale renovation of the List of United States soccer champions article, in case you were interested in that particular piece and had any suggestions or input. It should be completed and posted soon. -- Fifty7 (talk) 20:55, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

MLS Cup article GA review[edit]

Re: [1] Sorry for the delayed response. GA reviews are not votes. You need to read the instructions at the top of WP:GAC carefully (the "how to nominate an article" section). You can nominate an article for GA review (by adding the nomination template to the talk page), and then it will automatically be added to the list of nominations on WP:GAC. After that, a reviewer will read the article and comment on any changes that need to be made for it to be GA level (that may take up to 2 months based on the current backlog). When the reviewer comments, you'll be given about 3-5 days to address them, at which time it will be promoted to good article status. Again, sorry I didn't respond to this sooner. I have a lot less time for Wikipedia than I used to. --SkotyWATC 04:24, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

P.S. the 09 and 10 USOC final articles are actually featured articles now which is an even higher level of quality than good article. In order to achieve FA quality, an article must first pass a GA review, so that's step one. You can see how this process occured in the article history template on each article's respective talk page. --SkotyWATC 04:27, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

VCU Rams[edit]

Hi! I've been helping out with the logos of various organisations, and I noticed that the VCU Rams soccer logo at File:VCU soccer.gif. Currently it doesn't have a fair use rationale for the two articles it is being used in - VCU Rams men's soccer and VCU Rams women's soccer. That's not a big problem - we need them in order to use the non-free content, but that is easily remedied. However, while I was going to add a rationale, I'm not sure if the logo is used for both teams, and looking online I couldn't tell. Can you confirm that it is used for both? I've removed the logos for now, but once we get the rationales fixed we should be able to add them straight back. Thanks. :) - Bilby (talk) 15:25, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Something's amiss[edit]

A couple times while editing DC United, you've somehow managed to insert Gordon Wallace (!) as the team's top goal scorer in the 2009 Champions League tournament. See here and here. Perhaps you're using a template or a saved file to make these edits? If so you need to fix it. The error isn't always detected in a hurry. Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 14:32, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

College soccer navboxes and standings templates[edit]

Quidster4040, hello. I've been meaning to drop you a message for a few days now, but I think you've already come upon some of my edits. I working on a project to standardize templates across all college sports. I'm primarily a college football guy, but coordinate a lot with the college basketball WikiProject and have worked on college baseball as well. See here for a summary of what I'm aiming for. It would be great to get some input from a soccer guy like you. I see you've been doing a lot of work setting up the 2011 college soccer standings templates. The college football and college basketball standings templates are constructed using functional templates like Template:CFB Standings Start. Would be great to get the soccer standings templates set up in a similar fashion. Let me know if you have any thoughts on this stuff. Thanks and the best. Jweiss11 (talk) 22:18, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your quick response and your enthusiasm. There are a few things in Template:CFB Standings End that are football specific. There are also some little style differences between the football and basketball templates that should be ironed out; I plan on working on that. I don't know too much about college soccer. Are there polls for college soccer? Looking at the Big Ten and ACC websites, they have a column for points in conference play. Looks like 3 points for a win and 1 point for a tie in the Big Ten. Is that something that should be included in the standings templates? Also, I see you've named the 2011 standings templates "condensed". Are there expanded versions out there? You can reply back right here to keep this conversation in one place. I've got your talk page on my watchlist, so I will see when you reply. Thanks again. Jweiss11 (talk) 06:24, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Anytime! Well, from what I've seen, rather than ranking teams based on their percentage record in conferences, they are ranked by the number of points, which is, yes, 3 points for a win and 1 point for a tie. The only poll I am aware of is the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll [1] in which coaches vote for who are the top collegiate soccer teams in the country. It does not display any votes nor first place votes, but just their previous ranking and their present record, which is display in wins-losses-ties. I have created expanded templates for the ACC and the CAA, which display the teams overall record, as well as their goals for, goals against, percentage and points. The latter only for the conference play. Let me know if there are any additional questions. Would you like any assistance with the templates? Quidster4040 (talk) 19:06, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
My apalogies. I accidentally linked you to the Division II rankings. Here's the Division I rankings. These rankings do include points, which I'm not sure how they are calculated, along with first place votes. Quidster4040 (talk) 19:12, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the poll link. I'd like to make a suggestion about the naming of the soccer standings templates. To make things sync with the way we've set things up for other college sports, the "condensed" standings should take the basic name, e.g. "Template:2011 ACC men's soccer standings". The standings templates with the goals for and against should be labeled with "expanded", e.g. "Template:2011 ACC men's soccer standings expanded". Does that sounds reasonable? Setting up expanded standings tables with points for/against may be something we want to do for other sports one day. Thanks. Jweiss11 (talk) 19:34, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

One more thought. It may be very helpful to you to set something up like Template:Cbb link for soccer. Jweiss11 (talk) 20:15, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

I have created a template now called {{csr link}} which is based heavily off of {{cbb link}}. A few of the condensed templates have the csr link instituted. I also redirected the expanded templates to have that tag on the end. Quidster4040 (talk) 13:53, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Nice work! Jweiss11 (talk) 16:12, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Hey just wanted to let you know, I changed {{csr}} to {{csoc}}. This is mainly because when one looks at the URL for college sports websites, and their soccer webpage, the link abbreviates soccer as "soc", so I felt it would be apt to do the same with the template, since football uses "cfb" and basketball uses "cbb". Quidster4040 (talk) 13:17, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

I've been working with Jweis11 on the standings templates for football, and I've created a new set of meta-templates that serve as the formatting baseline for our standings. With these new meta-templates in place, it should now be easy to create a condensed soccer standings template that has the same look and feel as the football and basketball templates. Have a look at {{CFB Standings Start}}, {{CFB Standings Entry}}, {{CFB Standings End}}, and their basketball counterparts. I think we could just go with setting ties=yes in the soccer template so it displays for all cases. Maybe if I get time I'll even take an initial crack at creating the soccer standing templates. DeFaultRyan 17:19, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Actually, it ended up being so easy, I went ahead and created the start/entry/end templates. Here's a little demo of how they might look in this season's Big East for a sample. It should even be pretty easy to incorporate a link to the conference tournament the way many of the football standings templates link to their championship game. DeFaultRyan 17:31, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
{{CSOC Standings Start|2011 Big East Conference men's soccer standings|Big East Conference}}

2011 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final[edit]

Hey, I saw your recent additions to this article covering the Chicago Fire's path to the final. I've added a bunch of references to them and touched them up. Let me know what you think. I've also filled in the Sounders FC section. Now that the article has been expanded so much, I nomintated it for to appear in the Did You Know? section on Wikipedia's main page. Here's a link to the nomination template so you can watch it's status if you like (and help me respond to any concerns raised by reviewers). Note that I listed you as one of the article expanders in the nomination. Thanks again. --SkotyWATC 17:41, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! I glanced at the route to the final sections for both clubs, and apart from one tiny spelling error, it looked fine to me! I'll take a look at what reviewers have to say and how I can fix any tiny errors that irk them. Quidster4040 (talk) 13:58, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

College soccer articles: see also sections and categories[edit]

Quidster4040, I noticed some of your recent creations, e.g. 2011 Atlantic Sun Conference Men's Soccer Tournament. A couple of small items to watch:

  • The "A" in "See also" section headings should not be capitalized. Moreover, I'd recommend doing everything you can to keep those sections to a minimum or eliminate them entirely. They tend to develop into clutter heaps at the bottom of articles. A better strategy is to weave links to related topics into the lead and body of an article where appropriate.

I see you you've taken many of my recommendations to heart, e.g. the name change for Template:2011 ACC men's soccer standings expanded. Awesome. I've enlisted User:DeFaultRyan's help on the standings templates and he's working on some new nitty gritty coding to standardize these templates and allow them to support more sports. Thanks and keep up the good work. Jweiss11 (talk) 18:11, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Categories for college soccer standings templates[edit]

Quidster4040, I added some more categories to most of the 2011 college soccer standings templates you've created so that they roll up into the standings by conference scheme here: Category:American college sports standings templates by conference. As you create more standings templates for multi-sport conferences, please make sure to have them roll up in like fashion. Standings templates for soccer-only conferences like the Atlantic Soccer Conference don't need to roll up this high. They should roll up to Category:American college soccer standings templates to parallel the soccer subcategories of the multi-sport conferences. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

I have granted your account an exemption from IP blocking. This will allow you to edit through full blocks affecting your IP address when you are logged in.

Please read the page Wikipedia:IP block exemption carefully, especially the section on IP block exemption conditions.

Note in particular that you are not permitted to use this newly-granted right to edit Wikipedia via anonymous proxies, or disruptively. If you do, or there is a serious concern of abuse, then the right may be removed by any administrator.

Appropriate usage and compliance with the policy may be checked periodically, due to the nature of block exemption, and block exemption will be removed when no longer needed (for example, when the block it is related to expires).

I hope this will enhance your editing, and allow you to edit successfully and without disruption. -- DQ (t) (e) 06:32, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

  • Just to for posterity, DeltaQuad consulted me as a Checkuser, and yup, the IPBE is fair and square here. WilliamH (talk) 06:36, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hey, Quidster you really have to start using them. Regularly. When you delete an entire large section of an article without any accompanying explanation (like this), it really is indistinguishable from vandalism. The only reason I didn't revert it on sight is that I know your name. And not just the big edits, but the small ones too so that other editors don't have spend time reviewing your work to figure out what your latest project is. Thanks.

Proposed deletion of UEFA 2011[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article UEFA 2011 has been proposed for deletion. The proposed-deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Koppapa (talk) 20:21, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

I have added additional information and added citations and a reason why it should be a standalone article. Quidster4040 (talk) 20:21, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

2012 Carolina Challenge Cup[edit]

Hello Quidster4040, I just thought I'd let you know that I saw your article 2012 Carolina Challenge Cup in the New Articles list-- The layout of the article makes it very clear.However, I noticed there are some holes that may need filling: the article does not contain in-line citations, and so doesn't follow Wikipedia style guidelines. It would be great if you could also add references to the related article Carolina Challenge Cup.

It's always nice to see users contributing to make Wikipedia better!Jipinghe (talk) 18:49, 30 November 2011 (UTC)


Your GA nomination of 2011 D.C. United season[edit]

The article 2011 D.C. United season you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol unsupport vote.svg; see Talk:2011 D.C. United season for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article. Jezhotwells (talk) 02:16, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. In Coastal Carolina Chanticleers men's soccer, you recently added links to the disambiguation pages John Farrelly and NCAA Independents (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. For more information, see the FAQ or drop a line at the DPL WikiProject.

My mistake, sorry[edit]

Hi there, I just wanted to let you know and to appologize for an edit I made on one of your articles, the 2011 Charlotte 49ers men's soccer team. I had removed two red-linked categories, but it was after I saved the page that I noticed they had only been added in the last couple of days. I assume you added them with the intention of creating them, and reverted my edit. I did however correctly format the section titles, but if you prefer I leave those articles alone, you can revert those edits. Sorry, for any added work I've caused you in having to go back and revert the changes I made to the headers. Cmr08 (talk) 01:31, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
