Potential disambiguation?[edit]

Hello R96Skinner. I write in regards to the entry you created for "Franco Costa". I was trying to translate the Franco Costa page on Wikipedia Germany (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco_Costa) and this seems to be linked to Franco Lautaro Costa instead (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco_Costa).

Do you know how we could solve the disambiguation?

Disambiguation link notification for July 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2014–15 FA Cup Qualifying Rounds, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Westfield F.C.. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

That was intentional. I realize this is a bot but it doesn't work correctly, I clearly stated it was intentional on the post. R96Skinner (talk) 09:53, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, Mr RD 19:04, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

BSL 2016[edit]

Hello sir, may I express my sincere gratitude for creating and updating the article 2016 Brunei Super League. It's only a small league in a small country and the FA are in shambles and they just won't update their site with even the current tables, so the wiki page is gonna be only one of the very few sources for the league's info online.

I still can't get my head around the Tabuan Muda teams. The current one playing in the BSL are the U21s as stated explicitly by various sources, and the U15s last year became the U17s and replaced the U18s in the BPL. And from what I heard the U18s last year aren't gonna play in the 2016 AFF U-19 Youth Championship. かぴさん Kapisan (talk) 02:56, 25 April 2016 (UTC)


Hello! No worries, don't mention it! Thank you the kind words.

I enjoy learning about the lesser known leagues and realised the BSL 2016 article hadn't been created yet despite the season starting recently so thought I'd help out and create it. It was difficult to find some of the information, for example I couldn't see why so many matches involving Indera and Kasuka have been postponed since the abandoned match between them two. Hope I did the league justice though.

Indeed, the Tabuan Muda teams are odd. I could find information for the Premier League team, but a little less on the Super League team. Thanks for stopping by!

Juanfran - Reply[edit]

Hi there R96S, from Portugal,

deal must have been upgraded (for lack of a better word) or something. I swear to you the La Voz de Galicia reference said he had signed a permanent contract with Deportivo (i.e. "...llega en propiedad hasta 2020", meaning roughly "...property of the club until 2020"). However, the source you now showed me indeed has developments (from 12 JULY, as opposed to mine from five days earlier), I have made the due amendments in article.

Sorry for any inconvenience, thanks for the help and happy editing --Be Quiet AL (talk) 17:23, 4 August 2016 (UTC)


Oh, I see! No problem at all! I wasn't even certain about it myself; thought I might have missed something in translation. Thanks for sorting it out, happy editing! R96Skinner (talk) 17:54, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

Autopatrolled granted[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi R96Skinner, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! Beeblebrox (talk) 00:35, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Cool. Nice one, Beeblebrox (and Frosty)! I didn't realise this was a thing (still a noob at the technical side of Wikipedia, ha - slowly learning). I had heard over time that there was a backlog, this is definitely a good idea to help patrollers out. R96Skinner (talk) 14:52, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Can we get some input in resolving an edit dispute?[edit]

Hello R96Skinner. I am hoping that you can lend some assistance. Me and user GiantSnowman need assistance in resolving an edit dispute concerning the kit section that was in the Nigerian national football team article. He removed it citing WP:NOTGALLERY. I disagree with his interpretation and I have shared my reasons on the talk page at WikiProject Football. We request the input of members of this project in order to resolve this issue. Your assistance would be appreciated if you have the time. Thanks! unak1978 16:47, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Franco Costa entry disambiguation[edit]

I was trying to translate the Franco Costa page on Wikipedia Germany (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco_Costa) and this seems to be linked to Franco Lautaro Costa instead (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco_Costa).

Women's Football / Soccer Task Force News: August 2017


Should the women's football task force become WikiProject: WOSO?

Sam Kerr playing against USWNT 2012.jpg

According to an op-ed in the recent Signpost, some editors think task forces and subgroups are dying in 2017.

What do you think about forming our own WikiProject separate from WP:FOOTY? There's an on-going discussion of the potential pros and cons on the task force talk page. Input is welcome.

Recent developments

New initiatives have been created for:

  • FA WSL (England's top-division league)
  • NCAA (American university teams, conferences, etc.)
  • W-League (Australia's top-division league)
Ongoing tournaments
Current and upcoming seasons for top-division leagues
Did you know?

While WP:FPL lists only two women's top-division leagues as notable due to its "fully professional" criteria, did you know you can create an article on any player in any league as long as the references meet WP:GNG guidelines? Make sure to tag the new article talk page with: {{WP Women's sport|footy=yes}}.

Have some new articles in mind or see some that need improvement? Add them to the Open Tasks page if you'd like and other editors may be able to help. Need tips, assistance, or resources from other WOSO editors? Leave a message on the task force talk page.

Thank you for your continued contributions to articles related to women's football / soccer (WOSO)!
