Copa Libertadores[edit]

Hi, I saw your article Qualifying method of Copa Libertadores in Argentina, I think you should mention that the holders qualify automatically, and unlike Europe, this means that the nation receives an extra place in the tournament to acommodate the holder. Regards, EP 02:20, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

League Champions of Argentina[edit]

Hi Salt: Thanks for the comment. I agree with your suggestion; my motivation in the discussion was to clarify the difference between "league titles" and "official championships" in Argentina. The original article didn't say "league" champions, that's why I added Gimnasia. Now it says "league champions" (which is what I suggested to do in my original comments), so I'm ok with that. However, there are three other 'official champions' in the AFA site (Atlanta, Boca, and Gimnasia), who won official though non-regular cups. I think that if you add a new section for these cups everything would be covered then. Thanks again.Nordisk varg (talk) 04:06, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Salt for your work! I'll have a look later and add material if it's needed. This link (http://www.sentimientobohemio.com.ar/copasuecia43.htm) has quite a bit of material on the Suecia Cup won by Atlanta. It's in Spanish; let me know if you need translation for it. Thanks again.Nordisk varg (talk) 18:50, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Hi again! Regarding your question and the quote: Yes, in Argentina all teams are defined as "small/little" (equipos chicos="little teams") except for Boca, River, and San Lorenzo (from Buenos Aires) and Independiente & Racing (from Avellaneda, a suburban city just across La Boca). These are called "Los cinco grandes"=The Big Five. Many "equipos chicos" won championships in the amateur era, but starting 1931 the "Big Five" have monopolized them. So, it is true, Atlanta (one of the many "small teams" from Buenos Aires) was the first one to win an official cup aside from those five. Prior to Atlanta, the "equipo chico" that came closer to become a champion was Banfield in 1951 (a team known as El Taladro="The tree-boring beetle"), who actually tied with Racing. After 1968, it has been a little more common for other "small teams" to win a title. Some argue that the "Sixth Big" should be Velez or Rosario Central, but this is partly for the rather unsuccessful last 30 years of a "big one": Racing. I'll have a look at your section later today. Take care.Nordisk varg (talk) 16:13, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: Time Zone[edit]

I might be wrong, but the reason I changed it, is because I thought in the edit history it was created on June 24, even though when you created it, it was June 25. Like you say, it's not an important thing, but there was some method behind my madness. Peanut4 (talk) 09:08, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

No worries. I always thought the article history was the same whatever time zone you were in. You learn something new every day. Peanut4 (talk) 19:34, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Re[edit]

Thanks for the notice. My principal reason was that it is common here that articles about history use "History of" format. Still I don't know if the definite article (the) should be used in this case. As for the double redirects, you are right. Thank God we have some bots here which operate quite frequently to repair double redirects. - Darwinek (talk) 16:32, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box.

Thanks[edit]

It is not so much that we have different views...the thing is that I usually talk to people trying to sort us in the same box when it simply can't happen for many reasons, nvm the fact that a lot of American editors try to "Europeanize" our pages...it is not that I am xenophobic. It is the fact that the confederations are way too different for one set of standards to be implemented on another. If we are going to do that, we might as well mix baseball with golf. But I will try to be a little courteous from now on. Jamen Somasu (talk) 20:45, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Liverpool F.C. wiki[edit]

Hello, I am the lead sysop on the Liverpool F.C. wiki. It is a wiki dedicated solely to Liverpool F.C.. We aim to make the ultimate database for the club we all love. Since adopting the incredibly inactive wiki about a month ago we have greatly increased the article count and modernized it from it's previous state. The problem is there are not many active members on the site and we need more for the site to properly grow. It is well organized and on it's way to be a great site we just need more editors to expand. It is based on Wikia's network of wikis. Like Wikipedia it is free to use and the editing process is exactly the same. If you know how to edit Wikipedia you will know how to edit the Liverpool F.C. wiki. Now for the question you may be asking yourself. Why edit there? Wikipedia has articles on Liverpool. This is true. At the Liverpool wiki it is all about Liverpool. We allow editors to edit anything about Liverpool no matter how trivial. We allow edits on reserve and academy players, and even things as trivial as the fitness coaches for the year 2011. We also do not lock pages to registered users. That means if you have something to say about Steven Gerrard you can click edit and not view source and actually write something. I would love for you to come by and check the wiki out. Feel free to edit any page. Every time you click edit your ARE helping this wiki grow. Thanks for taking the time to read this! http://liverpoolfc.wikia.com/wiki/Liverpool_FC_Wiki --Coffeeclub213 (talk) 01:07, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

WikiProject India Tag & Assess 2012 Contest[edit]

Hello friends, we are a number of editors from WikiProject India have got together to assess the many thousands of articles under the stewardship of the project, and we'd love to have you, a fellow member, join us. These articles require assessment, that is, the addition of a WikiProject template to the talk page of an article, assessing it for quality and importance and adding a few extra parameters to it.

As of March 11, 2012, 07:00 UTC, WikiProject India has 95,998 articles under its stewardship. Of these 13,980 articles are completely unassessed (both for class and importance) and another 42,415 articles are unassessed for importance only. Accordingly, a Tag & Assess 2012 drive-cum-contest has begun from March 01, 2012 to last till May 31, 2012.

If you are new to assessment, you can learn the minimum about how to evaluate from Part One of the Assessment Guide. Part Two of the Guide will help you learn to employ the full functionality of the talk page template, should you choose to do so.

You can sign up on the Tag & Assess page. There are a number of awards to be given in recognition of your efforts. Come & join us to take part in this exciting new venture. You'll learn more about India in this way.

Chinese BWA article[edit]

Hi Salt, I saw that u were correcting/fixing my latest articles. Thanx 4 that. Wonder if you would like to help fixing a chinese article: BWA世界三顆星錦標賽. I'm taking care of carom billiards articles on WP:de, and if I have time on other WPs too. I was fixing the BWA and corresponding article Three-Cushion World Cup article on en/nl, because the statement, that this tournament series is a world championship is wrong. In the chinese article i saw the same table as on WP:en/nl. But I can't read chinese to tell right. If you like, you can check and fix it. Don't hesitate to ask me about unclear things. Greetings from Berlin. --LezFraniak (talk) 20:52, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

No need to thanks, I just tried to clean up the articles, you are the one who created them. Concerning the Chinese article, of course I can help. But I don't really get your point. What did you mean by "this tournament series is a world championship is wrong"? So what should I check in the Chinese article in order to tell whether it says it correctly or not? Greetings from Berlin too, as I am currently living here. Salt (talk) 00:22, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
That's funny! If u want, we can meet and I can tell/explane! --LezFraniak (talk) 03:58, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, of course we can! And so I could also practice my broken German ;) But I am a bit confused about the Chinese article as it links to the German, English and Dutch article that are about Billiards World Cup Association, the organiser of the tournament. Maybe I can translate the Chinese article to you words by words and let you see whether it is acceptable.
The translation:
'The "BWA World Three-cushion Championship" instead use: Three-Cushion World Cup was a Three-cushion tournament organized by Billiards World Cup Association (BWA) since 1986. Starting from 2004 1999, since the BWA had financial difficulties unclear!?, it could not continue competing with the UMB UMB took over organizing it with the tournament No 87 (1999/4, after the founder Werner Bayer got sick. His last tournament was in Berlin 1999/3. so it ceased organizing the tournament.'
The above are what is written in the Chinese article. Is it correct? Or do your want me to correct anything? Salt (talk) 14:09, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Salt, that's exactly what I thought. There never was a "BWA World Three-cushion Championship"! It was and still is called "World Cup". I thought I made it clear in my english translation. I'm not sure why and how this mistake came up. But it made it through all articles. That's why I fixed it. During lack of organization or whatever the UMB (World association) didn't organize World championships from 1988-1991. Instead they give the title to the World cup champion. So in fact Torbjörn Blomdahl, Ludo Dielis and Raymond Ceulemans had both titles. compare tables here and here. But it's probably easier when we meet. I suggest that we meet at the german WP-Center. But I gonna write u an e-mail. Regards. --LezFraniak (talk) 16:24, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, but I have to say that I am totally confused. you're welcome :-) I knew that there was only a single tournament held by BWA during 1988-91. And the winner was regarded by UMB as the world champion. So, my question is, you mean this tournament held by BWA was and is called the "World Cup" instead of "BWA World Three-cushion Championship"? Yes, exactly! And my second question, then is it different to Three-Cushion World Cup? NO! If they are different, then which one is the world cup you keep talking about? And I don't understand what is wrong with the Chinese article. Can you tell me what would you amend in my above-translated version of the Chinese article? Can you simply copy it, edit it and paste it here again, so that I can understand your ideas more? Salt (talk) 17:12, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

I give you comments in green. I thought that the article makes it clear, but it doesn't seem so. Ok, let me try it again.

  • The "Billiards World Cup Association" organizes the World Cup.
  • The "World Association of Billiards" (Union Mondiale de Billard (UMB)) organizes the World Championships.

But it might be easier to talk about it when we see us tomorrow.

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! So it would be a good chance to win something for improving stubs on African sportspeople, including footballers, athletes, Olympians and Paralympians etc, particularly female ones, but also male. Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing a few expanded articles on African Paralympians, Olympians and committees etc, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:14, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:31, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
