We noticed though that when you edited 2012–13 Manchester City F.C. season, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Abdul Razak (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. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

re: Reliable sources of Premier League Statistics[edit]

Hi, I do not decide which sources are reliable or not, I follow general consensus and the info given to me. I will explain the info for you, but the basics are thaqt both are user-edited.

About wikipedia not being a reliable source you can read at WP:WPNOTRS, which states (in bold) Thus Wikipedia articles (or Wikipedia mirrors) are not reliable sources for any purpose..

About transfermarkt the discussion abour this source has taken place many times and it has been decided it is also not reliable, as you can read about at:

  1. Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard/Archive 150#Transfermarkt player profiles
  2. Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard/Archive 121#Transfermarkt
  3. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Archive 84#Mbaye Diagne
  4. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Archive 40#transfermarkt.de (old source)
  5. Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2013 December 10#Template:Transfermarkt

For transfermarkt not being reliable perhaps User:GiantSnowman has better sources for you or you could ask at WT:FOOTY.

For finding reliable sources try reading WP:RS, there are many different reliable sources.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask. QED237 (talk) 16:05, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

re: Edits to MCFC 15/16 Season page[edit]

Hi, First of all I am glad that you asked what was wrong so it can be fixed in the future. I should have explained it when I reverted and I am sorry about that, but I will explain step by step now.

  1. First of all I was planning on reverting only your last edit (diff) where you updated the result from the match, but acccidently reverted all, so sorry about that.
  2. My first reason for reverting was that you used an invalid html linebreak. As WP:LINEBREAK says The <br> or <br /> tag is used for a single forced line break. In your edit you used <br/> which is not prefferred. Any of <br> or <br /> is okay, but for consistency <br /> is used everywhere else in the ManCity article.
  3. Then you also added some extra spaces that is really not needed. I am a man of consistency, so either it is used everywhere or nowhere and never around linebreaks. please use
    ]]<br />[[
    
    instead of
    ]] <br /> [[
    
    and when some parameters is without space, like "report" or "team1", then it looks weird when you add space to "score", "goals2" and so on.
  4. A player name was also incorrect and not linked to the correct article ("Fernandinho" is at "Fernandinho (footballer)").
  5. There is no article at "London, England" it is at "London"
  6. No source or confirmation has been given for matchtime in the final
  7. Liverpool should be listed as "hometeam".

If you compare your edit, to the version after my edit (diff) and ignore the changes in infobox and overall section you had done meanwhile, you can see the difference in the matchdata.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Qed237 (talk) 12:03, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
