Russell Wilson Article[edit]

Because I have spoke with you in the past, and you are a more experienced editor than I, can you please take a look at the recent edit string on Russell Wilson between me and another editor. First the editor undid my revision and then came to my talk page and threatened reporting me for vandalism when I only undid him once which is in violation of assuming good faith. I just want to make sure I am not in the wrong. I always value a third party's opinion. Thanks! Chambr (talk) 03:44, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree that the other editor's format was poor, and their message borders on WP:OWN, in my opinion. They're relatively inexperienced (if not exactly new, as the account was registered in 2006) so I don't think its a big deal yet. I've incorporated their source into the article properly so hopefully that won't set them off. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 04:53, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Or it will. Because it did. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 04:53, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I saw. I like your wording, though. Chambr (talk) 04:57, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

You edit makes no sense. I have undone and provided a better edit. (Lorrainx (talk) 05:06, 22 June 2015 (UTC))

Yes, it did make sense, and no, you didn't undo it (you made a minor wording change after the fact). Your edit referred to the subject by his given name (Russell) which is improper, and you put your bare link source between two brackets, which is not how you source an edit. I changed the content to conform to Wiki's standards and incorporated your source (properly). In the future, please assume good faith. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 05:13, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Cut it with the changes[edit]

Stop removing all of the images, re-adding rankings, and making other unnecessary changes that only decrease the lists's quality. The changes you made were against consensus and discussion, please don't revert again. Thank you. Sportsguy17 (TC) 19:13, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

You don't WP:OWN the page - Wikipedia is a collaborative effort, and your hostile attitude is completely inappropriate. The list as it exists right now (your revert version) is of poor quality in my opinion (one column stretching the page vertically without making use of the width, no ranks, not correct or updated, etc.), and your revert, along with your comments, are making it very difficult for me to assume you are acting in good faith. I am opening a new discussion on the page and will encourage the participation of WP:BASEBALL to come to a new consensus. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 19:57, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Photo changes.[edit]

Hey I was wondering if you could possibly update some nfl players pictures. Such as, tony romo. matthew stafford. tom brady. ndamukong suh. julian edelman. reggie bush. antonio gates. Phillip rivers. just a few I don't know how to do it without it being copy write. Thanks bud. Reggie21bush (talk) 04:39, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

If you're looking for new photos, go to flickr and search for photos with creative commons licences (instructions for uploading them to Wikimedia Commons can be found here). However, the photos in place already are pretty good. I really don't see the need to replace them. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 17:14, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Dalton Pompey[edit]

In the personal life colum of Dalton Pompey you should add his sister her name is Kayla Hawthorne. I found out she lives in London Ontario after Dalton posted a picture of her on instagram. Bimlarock (talk) 03:52, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

The only notable part of that is that he has a sister named Kayla. Her last name and where she lives is irrelevant. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 20:22, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Pages in need of expansion[edit]

What's up Truth? Just wondering if you know of any baseball list articles that are in need of expansion or just a page redo. If so, feel free to send them my way. Much appreciated.Taffe316 (talk) 07:44, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Not really in need of a redo, but a couple that could use some help are List of Major League Baseball players with 4,000 total bases and List of Major League Baseball players with a .900 on-base plus slugging. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 20:00, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Troy Tulowitzki[edit]

I apologize for messing up the Troy Tulowitzki article. All I was trying to do was upload an updated photo of him in a Toronto Blue Jays uniform but for some reason it wasn't working. Anyways, sorry again for the innconvinience I may have caused. Parkwaydrive2196 (talk) 19:05, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

If you're looking to upload an image, use Wikimedia Commons, but the image needs to be either your own work or licensed under Creative Commons. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 20:00, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

I'd love your input[edit]

I have recently brought up an item for discussion at WPNFL and I would love to get your input as I know you have always had some good ideas in the past. Thanks. Also, you pumped for Colts season?? Chambr (talk) 03:26, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Usually by August I have given up hope for my Blue Jays, so I'm eagerly awaiting some Colts football. This year I get to look forward to September for football AND baseball, so I'm just pumped for sports in general. I'll have a look at the discussion. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 17:42, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

win/loss season vs team record.[edit]

I invite you to the discussion on the matter over at WT:BASEBALL. Thanks. RobDe68 (talk) 19:00, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm already there, but thanks for the notice. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 19:02, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Encarnacion sets Jays Franchise Month RBI Record. - Dates[edit]

Hi Trut-h-urts man Understanding you have 'owned' Encarnacion's page for a while, I am wondering why you changed my addition listing "August 30, 2015" as when Encarnacion broke the record to "the next day." Are exact dates not more encyclopedic than making a section read like a news article? What if someone changes the line above where the date was listed? SamDumcum (talk) 19:50, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

No one owns pages. Being that August 29 is mentioned 1 sentence before the addition, "the next day" is perfectly fine. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 19:59, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

'Owns' was used in single quotations to identify it as an urban expression meaning one who is 'on the ball,' or 'very active in the space.' Many pages continuously state dates for continuity, I was just asking why you didn't choose to leave it that way. SamDumcum (talk) 17:18, 31 August 2015 (UTC)


I placed the correct number in the correct section there was 0% wrong with my edit I looked at stats on his MLB page before placing it in the Info box as well unless I've placed false information I don't see a need for your attempts to correct an edit I've done, thanks JMichael22 (talk) 03:21, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Maybe you need to look a little closer - You placed the correct number of hits. No one is disputing that. You did not, however, update the batting average (.256 to .257) or OPS (.863 to .862). Here is your edit, and Here is Bautista's stats page. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 03:25, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia should make a coin toss so you may decide who has the privilege of updating JB's stats this evening at approximately 2145 EST once the stats have been officially updated by the MLB after the box score has been published. As there is no such coin, best of luck to you both. SamDumcum (talk) 17:29, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

What? This isn't a race or a competition, and if you got that idea from reading the conversation, maybe you need to read it again. JMichael incorrectly updated the infobox statistics. Regardless, you aren't even involved in this, so I don't see why you felt the need to insert yourself here. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 17:38, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Bryan Bullington[edit]

Please stop vandalizing my work. I've spent a lot of time writing that page. He lives in Kobe now because he pitches for ORIX. The other stuff you edited is petty. Please leave my page alone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DMagee33 (talkcontribs) 02:56, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

You do not own the page, nor did I vandalize it. The edits you have made do not conform to Wikipedia style policies. Do not use ordinals after dates (MOS:BADDATEFORMAT) and do not refer to the subject by his first name. Provide a reliable source for living in Kobe. This is not difficult. If you revert again I will report you for edit warring. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 03:00, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

You're really putting a damper on petty stuff. Go somewhere else and leave me alone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DMagee33 (talkcontribs) 03:18, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Bautista Picture[edit]

I have no intention of getting in an edit war with you over the photo, BUT....with that out of the way, you *were* rather dismissive of a photograph I was very fortunate to get. That's basically a close-up of Bautista's face, whicn you cannot see in the other photo, although I will offer you this, the other photo is quite good. All of Keith Allison's photos are good. I'm going to ask you to reconsider this, and not so much imply ownership of the page with such a rapid dismissal, or even failing to put my photo in the body of the article, as you yourself suggested. Terry Foote (talk) 21:51, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

  • My bad, you did put it in the article. I can live with this. I disagree with you; I was about 5 feet away from Bautista with a reasonably good camera. Furthermore, all of Allison's pictures come from Flickr, right? I'm giving this one to Wikipedia. Terry Foote (talk) 21:53, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
You're reading way too much into my edit summary. I said it wasn't the best, not that it was garbage, and it certainly wasn't my intention to offend you. The photo used before your edit is older, but it comes from a time when Bautista was arguably the best power hitter in the game, and taken while he was in his well-known swing motion. I feel it is the best representation of Bautista we have, including your photo and the others available on Flickr. I don't like for the accusation of ownership - I am a fan of the Blue Jays, and I regularly update and maintain the player/team/season pages. I do not own the pages, nor do I feel I have exhibited the qualities of a "page owner". As you noted, I did put your photo in the body of the article, under the 2015 subsection (here). Because we are still discussing this I am going to revert the page to its original form, per (WP:BRD). I hope you will refrain from reverting until we have come to a consensus. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 23:42, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
The more I think about it, the more I think you're correct here. I'll undo myself, minus the image size (it shouldn't stretch the infobox. 250 should be fine). Trut-h-urts man (TC) 00:18, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Trut-h-urts man, and I'm not just saying this because it's my photo, but because too it's a good thing to have a free image of JB wearing the current Blue Jays uniform. Plus, if you look at American League OPS stats, rather than the standard batting average, the last I checked, Bautista is back to his prime of hitting for power AND average. I think 2015 will be a great year both for Bautista and the Jays. I don't like in Canada as you do (I presume) but the Jays spring train about a 10 mile bicycle ride from my house, so I consider myself a fan. Here's to World Series 2015! Thanks again, Terry Foote (talk) 20:40, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Yep, check out this link - Bill James and all the stats Gods will tell you that the OPS stat is far more indicative of a player's offensive value than batting average, as it takes into account total bases, and number of walks. Bautista walks a lot as he's still a feared hitter, hence his far better OPS than BA. All best, Terry Foote (talk) 20:48, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for reverting vandalism originating from this IP address.[edit]

This IP is shared. It wasn't me! (talk) 17:37, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

A good way to avoid being confused with someone else on a shared IP is to register an account. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 18:15, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
This is a school computer, and I don't feel comfortable logging into my account of several thousand edits. Imagine if I accidentally left my account logged in! (talk) 18:30, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
