2007[edit]

Football Task Forces[edit]

Hi there! Basically if you find a page related to USA/Canada soccer, you need to put the following code onto the corresponding Talk page... {{Football|USA=yes}} or {{Football|Canada=yes}} . Sometimes they already have the Football tag in curly brackets so you just need to add |USA=yes (or Canada!).

(They actually do the same thing at the moment, just give different flags on the template)

If you want to work on current USA/Canada soccer pages, you can find a list in the links on the Task force page. They are ordered by quality (how much/how well written they are) and importance (how important they are to the coverage of soccer/football in Wikipedia). Let me know if you need any further help. Paulbrock 17:30, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Esperanto Task Force[edit]

Hi, hope I can point you in the right direction - the main thing it looks like you're missing is to change the assessment template (in this case Template:WP conlangs) - check the football one at Template:Football. You need to put in extra code, which will add the Talk page to extra categories if Esperanto is specified. (You'll also need to create the categories).

I never got round to doing a nice tidy "How to Add a Taskforce", but you could take a look at my notes at User:Paulbrock/WP_Football_work/WP_Football_task_force - sorry it's not very clear! I'm not on WP much at the moment, but leave me a message if you need further help. Paulbrock 18:26, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

{{WP conlangs}} tags[edit]

Howdy.

I noticed that you recently made some changes to {{WP conlangs}} tags. You added Esperanto=yes but you removed the importance= or importance=Low (/Med/High/Top). Please don't do this.

Instead, add the Esperanto tag to the end, like so: {{WP conlangs|class=Start|importance=Low|needs-infobox=yes|Esperanto=yes}} - note the | - without removing other tags.

If you specifically INTEND to recategorize something that is already tagged for class or importance - e.g. change something from Low to Med or Start to B - please start a discussion about it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Constructed languages/Assessment#Assessment discussion. But don't just delete tags.

I would appreciate it if you go back and fix the tags you've changed, as it's a bit of a pain to find and change all of someone else's edits.

Thanks! Sai Emrys ¿? 21:02, 16 December 2007 (UTC)


Hello again. As you can see below, I've gone through and reworked the ETF assessment stuff you started. It should all work now automagically, huzzah and such. Also {{WP conlangs}} now actually uses importance correctly, tags correctly, tags ETF things properly, etc.
Enjoy. Sai Emrys ¿? 03:49, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

2008[edit]

WP Football US/Canada[edit]

Hi, TFCforever! Has there been any discussion about SatyrBot's tagging the project's articles? I took a quick look around the project's talk page, but didn't see anything. Could you point me in the direction? – SatyrBot (talk) 01:32, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Anthem[edit]

Hi, TFCforever, I just made some changes to the anthems infobox (see its talkpage for details). Any comments are welcome. – Kpalion(talk) 12:04, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm glad you like it and I can see you already started to update articles with the new infobox. I made two more changes to the template though: I made the English title optional (no need to list it twice if the native language is English) and I made it possible to include a sound file in the box. You can see how it works in God Save the Queen. – Kpalion(talk) 13:37, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Move request for Dąbrowski's Mazurka[edit]

Hi, since you work a lot on articles about national anthems, you may be interested in that Dąbrowski's Mazurka has been nominated again for a move to either Mazurek Dąbrowskiego or Poland Is Not Yet Lost. You are welcome to state your opinion at Talk:Dąbrowski's Mazurka#Requested move (second time). – Kpalion(talk) 23:45, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

USSR tagging[edit]

There appears to be something wrong with the way you are tagging USSR related article talk pages--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 21:54, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

I just use the templates, so can't offer advice. I thought you were using a bot due to the rapidity with which they were applied, so didn't pay much attention until I had to go to the talk of one. You may wan to talk to someone in bot requests to undo your tags, and get some assist on bot tag applications based on any articles in specific categories--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 22:07, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

template might be fixed[edit]

The template is a little long and a little ugly (codewise) so I'm not positive everything is kosher, but I've fixed the obvious broken parts. Basically there are <noinclude> and </noinclude> tags that specify that the stuff in between them is not included when you use the {{template}} with the braces. The importance and class code was pasted strangely, splitting those tags in a broken way. I've fixed the noincludes on your sandbox, and used its talk page as a sample of the template usage (obviously it has too many categories on it right now, and user pages shouldn't have any categories at all, but I assume you'll blank everything once you are good). There are probably some categories that need creating, etc. but hopefully this will get you going again. JackSchmidt (talk) 01:39, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

No problem. You can see my changes amounted to almost nothing; I just moved a few noinclude tags. JackSchmidt (talk) 02:29, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject tag removal[edit]

Please do not remove the WikiProject tags from other projects. While WP:USSR may not care to track dab pages, but others do. Thanks, Kralizec! (talk) 15:58, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

No worries, and thanks for the speedy reply! I already fixed the pages in question. Just so you know the next time you see it, if a WikiProject assessment has something in the class criteria other than the usual types of stub, start, A, etc. then you know that project is tracking this specific type of page. For example, on the Talk:Soviet aircraft carrier Kiev (disambiguation) page, WP:SHIPS tracks disambiguation pages as class = Disambig while WP:MILHIST tracks it as class = DAB. As a member of WikiProject Ships, I can tell you that we track thirteen different types of pages! --Kralizec! (talk) 16:27, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

USSR tagging[edit]

Latvia is a sovereign state, and not part of Russia or USSR. You have been tagging suburbs of Riga - I'd say these don't fall into the USSr project. On the other hand, these clearly do: Embute‎, Vainode‎, Skrunda‎. Artlondon (talk) 16:15, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

I have been systematically tagging all articles under Category:Soviet Union for the WP:USSR. That said, there is a category in Category:Soviet architecture (which itself is in Category:Soviet art, which is in Category:Soviet culture, which is in the main category) entitled Category:City districts and microdistricts of the Soviet Union. This is the category with the articles concerning neighborhoods of Riga. I know that Latvia is now a sovereign state, but it was a constituent republic of the Soviet Union until 1991, which explains why these articles are in this category. You do raise a good point, however, about the necessity of such a category. Unless all these districts were established during the Soviet period, I see no reason why to keep the category. Please let me know if you would like me to delete this category.

TFCforever (talk) 16:35, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

I just tried to also remove that category - you beat me too it ;). It has no use. The former military sites I mentioned earlier would fit the soviet project. Artlondon (talk) 17:01, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Artlondon, I have another related question for you. There exists another similar category, Category:Cities and towns built in the Soviet Union, that I have already processed and tagged in its entirety. Although the USSR no longer exists, this category is only about those cities and towns that were built during the Soviet period, and I don't think that it is misleading because its title is more appropriate for a former entity than a current one. Would it be okay with you if I left all the articles within that category tagged with WP:USSR templates because there is some logical connection to the Soviet Union in this case? Thanks for your time. Also, I am currently adding your suggested articles to the project. TFCforever (talk) 17:14, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Category:Cities and towns built in the Soviet Union makes more sense. If you have already done it, prob best to leave it. I imagine it might vary per city to the extent the USSR founded/developed the settlement. I imagine if the project isn't suitable for certain cites, other people will spot it. It's quite a sensitive issue; especially in countries were certain generations considered the Soviets as occupiers, such as Latvia. In the case of cites, where people currently live, they might not want to be considered soviet. Artlondon (talk) 17:25, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Good point. I have one last suggestion to make; if somebody removes the WP:USSR tag from the talk page of any article, it would be extremely helpful if they could also remove the category tag from the article itself. Typically, the category that is drawing our attention has either "Soviet Union" or "Soviet" in it, but it may be a little harder to spot, such as Category:Red Western or Category:Stalinist architecture. If they can remove the USSR-related category tag, it will save us a lot of trouble, but it will also help you and any other Wikipedians who are are working on articles of post-Soviet states because it will keep us from bothering you again. If you could keep this in mind and maybe pass it along to anyone you might be working with, that would be great. Thanks! TFCforever (talk) 17:35, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

They are all good points. Objectivity, articles relating to architecture etc should cause problems and, generally, would appear suitable tot part of the USSR project. I hadn't realised the USSr categories, and will use these for articles like military bases, buildings etc.. Artlondon (talk) 17:59, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: Virgilijus Noreika[edit]

At first I'd like to hear the reason why the tag was put there. The same user that put the tag, put the same tag on other places and did remove them rather quick. I did remove the tag following those edits, who were apologizing for trouble caused. Best regards.--Lokyz (talk) 23:32, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

The tag was placed there, very simply, because I have been conducting a systematic tagging of all articles within Category:Soviet Union, and Category:Soviet singers is within it, as its name implies. I checked the article before tagging it and noticed that it mentioned that Noreika was active in the late 1950s and 1960s in Lithuania, at which time was the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic (which existed from 1940-1990). Knowing that the Lithuanian SSR was a constituent republic of the Soviet Union, I made the assumption that Noreika, due to his fame in Lithuania during the Soviet period, was within the scope of WP:USSR. I realize that anything to do with the USSR is a sensitive issue to Lithuania and its people due to the nature of its annexation by the Soviet Union during World War II, but by my judgment, I thought that it was an article that was reasonably related to the USSR and merited being included within the WikiProject. I apologize for any difficulties I have caused as a consequence of poor judgment, and please do straighten me out if you believe I am wrong in what I say. I don't want any ill will, and I want to make sure situations like this can be resolved in the future without lengthy dialog. Thanks for your time and best wishes. TFCforever (talk) 00:26, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
I also did not intend to cause problems. Just, well some legal issues apply, and I'm thankfull thet those were resolved without any further conflict. Thank you.--Lokyz (talk) 00:36, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
That's a fascinating point I did not realize before. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. But, should I then completely disassociate everything pertaining to the Lithuanian SSR from WP:USSR? To me, that would seem a little extreme. What about Estonia and Latvia, whose histories are somewhat similar and feelings about the USSR equally distrusting? Is it okay with you if I continue to add Lithuanian SSR-related articles to WP:USSR, as long as their subjects were notable in the entire Soviet Union? What would you recommend I change about my tagging procedure, if anything? I don't mean to be a pest, but I would just like to establish some guidelines to help resolve this issue.
I would like to make one final point, and then I'll just listen to what you would like to tell me: I only add the WP:USSR tag to articles within Category:Soviet Union or any of its many subcategories. If you find an article with an unwanted tag on it (i.e., out of the scope of the USSR), it would be wonderful if you could remove the category link on the article page as well as the tag on the talk page. Not only will this prevent confusion at WP:USSR, but it will also keep us from bothering you again. Thanks so much for your time and best of luck with all your work concerning Lithuania. Please feel free to contact me and I'm more than willing to help you however I can, even if that means just staying out of your way and not making your work any harder than it need be. Best wishes! TFCforever (talk) 00:54, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
[1] ;) Artlondon (talk) 10:26, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
As I've told you earlier I did not intend to make it a big issue - I was rather surprised by the intensity you put and then removed USSR tag on some articles like in here [2] or here [3]. If you insist it is important, you may add them back again.--Lokyz (talk) 10:35, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello! I don't think we have any particular convention for the Baltics during (what they consider) Soviet occupation as the SSRs. Generally speaking, articles specifically related to the SSRs should be tagged (so, re: SSRs themselves, officials of the SSRs, monuments of the SSRs, and whatever else was produced under the official aegis of the SSR regimes). Articles regarding people, places, things which "passed through" the Soviet era should not be tagged unless specifically associated at a "country" level with the USSR, for example, Yuri Gagarin, who lived in Riga, Latvia, but is known as a Soviet cosmonaut. Hope this helps! —PētersV (talk) 14:49, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

I think this is reasonable solution, that could help avoid some flames.--Lokyz (talk) 16:28, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
I was about to propose something similar. Since Soviet Union no longer exists it's not really realistic to include local objects (like factories, reservoirs, neighborhoods, people, etc.) withing the scope of Soviet Union project. However, some of these objects do belong in Soviet categories. For example, Elektrenai Reservoir belongs in category:Reservoirs built in the Soviet Union, but I seriously doubt any members of the WikiProject would have any interest in this lake. Renata (talk) 17:48, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Au contraire, proof positive you can learn something new every day. —PētersV (talk) 02:16, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for all your help. I think we can lay this one to rest and continue with our respective projects. It's great to come to a satisfactory solution like this. TFCforever (talk) 02:18, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

About Mireille Mathieu singing La Marseillaise[edit]

On July 1, 2008 I allured a certain kind of Wikipedia fanatic (with the remark "Jewish paranoia") and, as expected, the next day he (TFCforever) went into action. He changed

bloodied banner to bloody banner (blimey!)

roar to howling (dehumanization of enemy, facilitating killing of other human being)

march to walk (?)

tainted blood to impure blood (connotes the interdict against intermarriage in Israel and other theocracies)

slaughter to cut the throat (during the kosher slaughter the animal is exsanguinated by cutting its throat)

French army officers to Napoleonic officers

German to Nazi

and we could go on.

He also deleted link to Mireille Mathieu singing La Marseillaise. TFCforever knows nothing about Mireille Mathieu, he does not know French, he does not know about France and, nevertheless, he feels entitled to defile the Marseillaiese with his racist, uninformed, and closed-minded "edits." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.172.183.140 (talk) 23:26, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Good sir, I apologize for this mess I seem to have created. I am utterly confused by the edit, as all I thought I did was to add the sound file (Francia.ogg) from Wikimedia Commons. I was prepping a project for Esperanto Wikipedia (please see eo:Vikipediisto:TFCforever and my contributions) in which I created a number of infoboxes for anthems on which eo wiki has articles. When I found the collection of national anthem audio files on Commons, I noticed that there was a sound file for the French national anthem. I added it to the article and, as can be noticed by the minor edit tag and edit summary, saved it thinking that this was all I had changed, the one addition to the infobox. However, I was careless and did not check the edit summary, so these other changes, which I am unfamiliar with and have no idea what they mean or what they imply, are a complete shock to me. I don't have any idea how they got there and I am shocked and startled by them and what, as you tell me, they imply. You're right, I know nothing about France, can't speak French, etc., etc., so I am reverting my edits and trying to add what I originally intended in the first place without all that strange garbage. I'm sorry for the mess, and I'll have it cleaned up right away. TFCforever (talk) 01:04, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
    • P.S.: The edits at Special:Contributions/80.236.89.165 look incredibly similar to the ones that were accidentally made when I tried to add the sound file. This user may have made the changes; it looks like he, at least, has some familiarity with the subject, unlike myself. TFCforever (talk) 01:18, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
      • I am the 80.236.89.165 user and as you can see very easily in the history of the Marseillaise page, I only removed a sentence about a wrong compositor. – Cilpale 8 July 2008 23:49 (Paris time) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.236.89.165 (talk) 21:50, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
        • Sorry about that: I made a terribly elementary mistake, as it was the user who edited the page after you who changed much of it, and you only made a minor edit. Please forgive me for my ignorant remark, but please understand I was trying to find a user who knew what the edits meant and who might be able to answer 75.172.183.140's grievances. I don't have any ill will towards you, 75.172.183.140, or the Marseillaise. As you can tell, I don't know any French. All I was trying to do when this whole fiasco started was add the sound file from Commons to the infobox. I'm just going to let go of this whole matter now; I'm not helping anyone with my lack of knowledge on the subject. Thanks for straightening me out and best wishes to you.

Flags[edit]

Hi TFCforever (soccer fan as well are you? :-) ). I appreciate all the work you've been doing on CFL articles (see below for a belated barnstar).

I don't think the addition of the flag icons on the CFL team pages is appropriate per MOS:FLAG, though. Cheers! DOUBLEBLUE (talk) 04:18, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Hooray![edit]

A Barnstar!
The Red Maple Leaf Award

In recognition of work on Canadian football-related articles, TFCforever is hereby awarded the Red Maple Leaf Award.

Football league infoboxes[edit]

Hi... thanks for dropping me a line about the infoboxes. I hope I didn't seem snippy or argumentative! I just prefer the current infobox on a purely aesthetic level, as it seems to have a more natural visual flow than the box-style one... plus, in terms of "greater simplicity and clarity" of the coding - well, there are only three or four of us who regularly update USL1/USL2/PDL pages anyway, and we're all pretty savvy at being able to update the tables without screwing up the coding, so really I don't think a whole lot needs to be done - I'm sure someone of your programming talents could be put to better use on pages who REALLY need your help and expertise :) Thanks for getting involved and helping though - the more of us who take an interest, and who do good work on these things, a better resource it will be! --JonBroxton (talk) 17:48, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Germany[edit]

Hi TFCforever; thanks for your note. I'm pleased the narration has been put to good use, especially in such a thoughtful way. Spoken articles take quite a lot of work, especially in terms of editing, but are enjoyable to do (well, I find them enjoyable!), so I hope to continue to do them in the future. Regards, The Voice of Hassocks/Hassocks5489 (tickets please!) 23:40, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

just thank you[edit]

for categorizing the pictures from the bundesarchiv at commons. greetings from germany --Z thomas (talk) 20:45, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the kind words on the Big Ten women's basketball seasons. Have a great weekend Maple Leaf (talk) 16:17, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

re: Taylor Field Picture[edit]

I didn't realize that it was the only photo we had. I haven't really been consistent on where I've uploaded pictures to, so thanks for moving it. There's a reason I put it under a fairly liberal license. -Royalguard11(T) 01:22, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Removed category[edit]

Hey,

Just wondered why you removed the "Sports" category from these two photographs:

I'm pretty new here so I guess I must have messed something up...

Thanks, Dlivnat (talk) 00:33, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

That makes perfect sense. Thanks! Dlivnat (talk) 09:36, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Mohammed Fellah[edit]

Hey m8, while your looking at it, could you help me figure this out? 1.67 m (5 ft 5+1⁄2 in). He is 1.67 m, but idk what that is in ft etc.. x)

  • Just use the "convert" template...let me see if I can get it to work...TFCforever (talk) 14:10, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Actually, the "Height" template that is in there right now automatically translates into feet and inches. Check out the documentation at Template:Height. It looks like you're all set! TFCforever (talk) 14:14, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

2010 Canadian Championship[edit]

Thanks for the addition of the kit, etc., but looking at past results and those of other national league championships, those aren't usually included on those pages. Is there a better place to store that information? --Walter Görlitz (talk) 18:27, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Difficult, not at all. Interesting, certainly. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:45, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi, would you be so kind as to give us support![edit]

Hello, I hope you're doing fine and I sincerely apologize for this intrusion. I've just read your profile and you seem an open minded person and moreover you appreciate football (and maybe the Barça team) and also speak Esperanto so maybe I am not bothering you and you will help us... I'm a member of an association "Amical de la Viquipèdia" which is trying to get some recognition as a Catalan Chapter but this hasn't been approved up to that moment. We would appreciate your support, visible if you stick this on your first page: Wikimedia CAT. Thanks again, wishing you a great summer, take care! Capsot (talk) 14:54, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

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, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes 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. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

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) 18:15, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Unassessed hockey articles[edit]

I noticed the same thing, and was just about to do the same thing. Been meaning to clear this up, as well as tackle some of the 107,000 articles at Category:Unassessed biography articles. So you stay at the end, I'll be at the start. With the two of us here it shouldn't take long to clear it up. Kaiser matias (talk) 00:40, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Donaghmore-ashbourne-gaa.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Donaghmore-ashbourne-gaa.gif. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 20:15, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
