Page move Soccer in the Republic of Ireland[edit]

Please don't move pages with out first discussion , remember football is an ambiguous term, see Football (word) Gnevin (talk) 23:54, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

I asked you not to change soccer to football until the discussion was concluded , feel free to readd the image didn't mean to remove that , your additions where uncitable and so i removed them Gnevin (talk) 17:52, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
This is nothing to do with not liking the sport, I just asked you no to change every reference of soccer to football in case it needs to be changed back in a few days time Gnevin (talk) 17:59, 26 January 200 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gnevin (talkcontribs)
See Ice hockey, Gaelic football and Rugby union bolding alternate names is correct , As for the picture can you 100% confirm everyone in the picture is Irish ? Irish people love and play football, deal with it. i dont care if they want to play chess each to their own Gnevin (talk) 18:46, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Ok seems to be the general policy , the MOS isn't very clear however .Gnevin (talk) 18:51, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Why did you move all the soccer league pages to Ambiguous titled pages when the discussion is still on going ?Gnevin (talk) 22:17, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

March 2012[edit]

Please assume good faith in your dealings with other editors. Assume that they are here to improve rather than harm Wikipedia. ♪♫19maxx♪♫ 02:26, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Please do not attack other editors. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. ♪♫19maxx♪♫ 02:42, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:NUFC - Old Crest - Magpie.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:NUFC - Old Crest - Magpie.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:06, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

File source problem with File:AndyAitken-NUFC.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:AndyAitken-NUFC.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:03, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

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) 21:13, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
