Invitation to take part in a pilot study[edit]

I am a Wikipedian, who is studying the phenomenon on Wikipedia. I need your help to conduct my research on about understanding "Motivation of Wikipedia contributors." I would like to invite you to a short survey. Please give me your valuable time, which estimates only 5 minutes. cooldenny (talk) 21:39, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Just saying hello[edit]

Hey, just wanted to say hello - I noticed you've been working a lot on MLS articles since the start of the season. Welcome to the gang! Great to have another pair of US soccer eyes and ears keeping things up to date. Keep up the good work! JonBroxton (talk) 06:25, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Notts County players[edit]

The offical website first team players is not up to date, if you are going to edit using that info then please wait until season starts. The current list includes/excludes players that have been recently recruited or released as announced on the news section of web site. Regards --palmiped |  Talk  13:24, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Babajide Ogunbiyi[edit]

Thanks for your message on my talk page. I have looked back at the matter, carefully considering what you said, and answered at User talk:JamesBWatson #Babajide Ogunbiyi. JamesBWatson (talk) 09:49, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

New roster format[edit]

Thanks for your tireless work on the MLS rosters. I'm surprised that you haven't commented on the new roster format though, either pro, con, or neutral. I'd like to know your feelings on it since you see them the most. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 18:21, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Using a black background seems to hide the fact that the table is sortable. (related to recent D.C. United edit) --Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:49, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Good spot. May be worth changing to black on white instead. UncleTupelo1 (talk) 01:53, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Well, that didn't work. UncleTupelo1 (talk) 01:59, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Ways to improve Moises_Hernandez[edit]

Thanks for creating Moises_Hernandez, UncleTupelo1!

Wikipedia editor Accedie has tagged the page as having some issues to fix. In addition, they wrote this note for you:

Nice work! It would be helpful to add some more information about your references – you can use the "cite" tool at the top of the editing window to do that. Let me know on my talk page if you need help :)

The tags on the page can be removed by you or another editor when the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on Accedie's talk page.

Rob Vincent on Riverhounds Roster[edit]

I am wondering where you heard that Rob Vincent, presumably the College of Charleston player, has signed for the Riverhounds. I could not find any sources anywhere. I trust your work but am curious since the 'hounds are my local club and I haven't heard anything. gri3720 (talk)

April 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm GiantSnowman. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Rohan Reid, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. GiantSnowman 08:07, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

My fault for not including a source! deathgripz 16:03, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the source; in future please do not remove the playing position from the introduction, as you have been told about before. GiantSnowman 16:06, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

UEFA teams are generally in a transfer freeze[edit]

English, German, French, Italian and Spanish teams are not able to transfer players yet. Most of the regular football editors will revert these when they encounter them. I hope that I didn't offend you by reverting the Man U changes you made. Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:10, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, just to let you know that Jamie Mackie's transfer to Nottingham Forest has not been officially completed yet, so I reverted your changes. JMHamo (talk) 21:46, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Kevan George[edit]

I just undid your edit on Kevan George because well.... he hasn't capped for Trinidad and Tobago yet. National teams can only be added when a player has actually appeared in a match for their country. Just being called up. – Michael (talk) 19:37, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

August 2013[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to introduce inappropriate pages to Wikipedia, as you did at Michael Bustamante, you may be blocked from editing. If you need guidance on how to create appropriate pages, try using the Article Wizard. This article was virtually identical to one that had been deleted as a result of consensus at a deletion discussion. Attempting to overturn consensus by simply ignoring it and re-creating the article is unacceptable. I see that you have a long history of creating articles that have then been deleted as lacking notability, and that some of them you have recreated, in some cases more than once. By now you have sufficient experience to be well aware that Wikipedia has inclusion criteria which many of your articles do not meet, and you need to make sure that you follow Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:26, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Why on earth have deleted the Michael Bustamante article when he meets Wiki guidelines and the sources showed this? Creating this article isn't disruptive editing and threatening being blocked from editing is a bit far fetched. deathgripz 12:21, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

I have checked all of the changes between the version of the article deleted following the AfD discussion and the version which you created. Most of them were minor formatting changes and the like, and none of them did anything to add any new evidence of notability. You may well believe that the sources showed that "he meets Wiki guidelines", but the consensus at the discussion was unambiguously against that opinion. Wikipedia works by consensus, not by individual editors ignoring what others think and repeatedly posting their own preferred versions. Persistently ignoring consensus and repeatedly re-creating content which consensus says should be deleted is indeed disruptive editing. JamesBWatson (talk) 14:25, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

I WAS JUST TRYING TO BE HELPFUL. I guess he doesn't get a Wikipedia article then. You're going to have to be the one who breaks it to him though. deathgripz 14:28, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Well, since I wrote the message above, I have received a message from ArsenalFan700, suggesting that notability has changed since the AfD, so I have restored the article. However, the general point concerning being careful about creating articles still applies. JamesBWatson (talk) 15:00, 24 August 2013 (UTC

Mike Magee?[edit]

You edited that Magee won the Golden Boot with 22 goals, when in fact, he only has 21 (counting today's goal). Camilo is the Golden Boot winner with 22. Acmilan10italia (talk) 02:22, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Nottingham Forest[edit]

Hi mate, thanks for having found and corrected my mistakes! I hope that the Forest page and the current season page are OK ;) Ciao! Towerman86 (talk) 10:13, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

MLS player category[edit]

I removed Category:Major League Soccer players from Matt Wiet's page because that category is only for players who have appeared in at least one MLS match, which Wiet has not done. Signing for a club doesn't mean anything when it comes to league categories. This applies for the lower divisions of American soccer as well. – Michael (talk) 23:53, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

MLS roster changes / edit summaries[edit]

I notice that you redid an IP editor's removal of several players from the DC United roster. I had undone the edit because, after checking the usual sources (DC United's website, Washington Post soccer Insider), I found no evidence of these roster changes. I noted my concern in my edit summary. With your having restored the edit, and the IP editor having made similar changes to a dozen or so MLS websites (all without a hint of the reason), I finally figured out that this reflects the re-entry draft. You (and the IP editor) would have saved me a lot of fact-checking if one of you had just said something about why you were making the edit. Particularly after I had drawn attention to the issue. Please make use of edit summaries in the future. They really do make life easier for other editors. Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 00:24, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Edited Sacramento Republic FC page[edit]

Hey I noticed you've been working on the Sac Republic FC page. I decided to update the kit images the other day because the team had announced the design. I got the home and away kit body created and uploaded and the article now refererences those kits. I noticed that you had added socks with a horizontal red band. Did you find a full kit picture the club had released? I could only find the shirt design so I left the shorts and socks just maroon for home and white for away. Since the shorts and socks haven't been unveiled, I deleted that edit but if you've seen the full kick, by all means, ignore me and put that back up! By the way, if you're planning to edit the kit, it seems to me that the color "barn red (#7C0A02)" is a close match to the official home kit main color and "black bean (#3D0C02)" is a close match to the diagonal stripe on both home and away kits. Just so you know if you do future edits. If you think another color matches better, we can alter the kits also. Thanks! Splitfire1000 (talk) 00:03, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Richard Eckersley (footballer)[edit]

Hi mate, thanks for updating Richard Eckersley's article now that he has left Toronto FC. I can't find any sources about that fact myself, so would you mind updating the article's prose with an appropriate source? – PeeJay 01:21, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Djamel Abdoun[edit]

Hi. I noticed you added Djamel Abdoun to the list of Nottingham Forest International Footballers. I have removed this as Abdoun has not been capped for Algeria whilst at Nottingham Forest. To qualify for the page, the player must be capped at full international level whilst a full-time employee of NFFC. IW4U (talk) 22:25, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Change to Real Salt Lake Roster[edit]

Hi noticed that you undid a revision of the Real Salt Lake roster, to include birthdate and age, and date acquired. I had seen a similar format on another team page. Is that not an allowed format for MLS football club rosters or was there another reason the change was reverted? If there is a specific format rule I should be following, please let me know. Thanks.

Hi! It seems you recently created an unreferenced biography of a living person: Luan Silva.

Tips[edit]

Hi there UT, AL from Portugal "here",

please (as i see you have done this several times), per WP guidelines (mind you, not mine no way!): 1 - in the player position field in box, we write (for example) "Defensive midfielder" not "Defensive Midfielder", curtailing the usage of caps; 2 - the updates are (for example) "8 June 2014", not "8 June, 2014".

Attentively, ask if you have any doubts --AL (talk) 04:42, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Dimitry Imbongo[edit]

I saw you just flipped Imbongo's nationality to French. [1] Boston.com article seems to indicate he's Congolese. Then again, his article says "Congolese-born French footballer". Is there a procedure to handle something like this, where the player's nationality is in question but it's quite clear that he will never be capped for either team? Achowat (talk) 22:48, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, he was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, but was raised in France from a year or two old. There's a lot of examples of this, Antoine Hoppenot at Philadelphia Union is one. I think in these instances, you go with the country the player was raised in. I mean, my cousin was born in China. He's definitely not Chinese though. UncleTupelo1 (talk) 00:01, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Not to doubt you, but is there a ref for him growing up on the banks of the Seine? Achowat (talk) 23:42, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Andy Iro and Soccer's "F.C."s[edit]

Sir, I noticed that this is the second time you've changed Andy Iro's infobox teams Stevenage F.C. and Barnet F.C. to not include the "FC" portion. While I recognize that there is no hard-fast, set in stone rule, please review the general usage on Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Players. This template serves a guide to the creation and layout of soccer player articles, which the community should use as best practices. As you can see, the "FC" portion is included not only within the infobox listed there, but is used throughout the article itself. I am unaware of any superseding precedents that would overrule said style/layout, however I'd imagine if there was such a case the template would be edited as such. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks, — GauchoDude (talk) 14:48, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

LA Galaxy[edit]

  • Whilst Gerrard has indeed signed for LA Galaxy, he will not be their player until his Liverpool contract expires in the summer; as such, he shouldn't be included in the player roster for LA Galaxy at this point. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 22:21, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Discussion RE the US Soccer Leagues[edit]

I'm letting you know that there has been a discussion regarding the US Pyramid: Talk:United States soccer league system#ASL's place in the pyramid. I probably stepped in it by adding ASL without researching that league at all; however, the broader discussion of how to order the leagues that are not sanctioned by USSF is also being included. Would love to hear input from frequent editors of the lower division league and club pages. Thx --Trödel 20:02, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Orange County Blues FC logo.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Orange County Blues FC logo.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:29, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Your contributed article, Danni Köning[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Danni Köning. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Danni König. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Danni König – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. 220 of Borg 14:46, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Tesche[edit]

Hello. I have no problem with either form, so long as it comes from whatever source is cited in the article. As neither club website gave a date and both said end of season, that's what I put. The difference between that and Kiernan is that the Kiernan source stated 2 May explicitly. If you prefer 2 May, please change the cited source to one that gives that date, otherwise I'll have to change the wording back to end of season – what we can't have, is content that isn't backed up by the source cited.

More to the point, is he any good? cheers, Struway2 (talk) 16:20, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Transfermarkt[edit]

Since most of its content is user-generated, transfermarkt is not a reliable source. Please do not cite it in articles, like you did on Tyler Walker (footballer). Thank you. Sir Sputnik (talk) 17:21, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

NYC FC – Andoni Iraola[edit]

Hey,

You say Iraola's number is on the team's homepage, but he is not even in the list of players on the team's homepage – http://www.nycfc.com/players. Team's title page of homepage is not a source. Provide an article or other detailed page where it is specifically stated that his number is #51. – Sabbatino (talk) 19:33, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Probably not going to get a link as it's listed on the homepage in a massive half page "buy tickets" ad. Guess he'll have to wait for his Wikipedia update. deathgripz 19:47, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Reinaldo Brenes[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Reinaldo Brenes has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The Costa Rican Primera Division isn't listed under WP:FPL, so this article fails WP:NFOOTBALL. It also fails WP:GNG because he hasn't received significant coverage.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Mikemor92 (talk) 18:05, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

You have now four times deleted the same section from the Designated Player Rule. You have been reverted each time, but yet you keep doing it. This is not productive. Do you want to have a conversation on the article's talk page about the best way to proceed? If you keep deleting this material without even attempting to reach consensus, I may consider reporting you. Barryjjoyce (talk) 21:49, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Pretty sure a discussion has been had and I think it's fairly clear why the section isn't needed and isn't maintainable. Apologies if you feel left out of the conversation. Also, would appreciate a massive toning down of the school teacher tone and condescension. Seeing as I create about 90% of MLS, NASL and USL articles, it'd be counter-productive to do so. Entirely up to you, mind. Thanks. deathgripz 22:51, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply here and for the note on the DP Rule talk page. I'll reply separately there, but did want to follow up with you here on one point you've raised above: can you point me to the discussion(s) on this issue that you think I might have been left out of? I want to make sure I'm up to speed on this issue. I'll respond separately on the DP Rule talk page to the substance. I appreciate all your contributions to soccer/football pages, and am sure we can work something out that is an improvement. Barryjjoyce (talk) 01:18, 18 September 2015 (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.

Hoppenot[edit]

I think your personal situation is a little different from Hoppenot's since you have one more step in your identity. I do not think that further discussion is necessary because, as I said, it was discussed multiple times when he was with the Union. Also, Wiki's policy on flag's being based on country of birth was developed to avoid exactly these kinds of discussions. Because there are no many players with multiple nationalities, it is simplest that we go by country of birth unless they represent another country. Thanks for the discussion. --Gri3720 (talk) 22:57, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

By Wiki standards, you would be Chinese. I'm sure that there are many players themselves who would not agree with the flag they are assigned. There are some examples in which another flag would be used....most commonly when a person is born overseas while their family is there only for work or vacation. There is a tendency on articles about European teams to have a separate section that lists players with dual nationalities but there is no set standards for these sections. Unfortunately, it's an imperfect science. --Gri3720 (talk) 14:26, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Why change the standard US player list layout?[edit]

Because it is awful, it is unquestionably worse in every single way than the standard squad template, and it has never been explained by US teams require a different layout, much less why we should go out of our way to use one that is worse. It's embarrassing and it's emblematic of everything truly awful and pointless about this website. Let's cut through the layers of forced bureaucracy and instead just make articles as best we can. Wicka wicka (talk) 19:32, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Can you take it to a larger platform such as a talk page? This template choice was discussed for a long period a couple of years ago and was decided it was better due to sortability. What does the old platform offer that this one doesn't, other than you don't like it? You really feel strongly about it, which is a bit odd. Let's have a standard, not just a different one for the Riverhounds, because they're your team? deathgripz 20:23, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Riverhounds[edit]

Firstly, I cannot prove that the gold kits are not their home kits because one cannot prove a negative. Secondly, I do not attend SOME matches, I go to MOST matches. They wear the blue kits at home at least 80% of the time. I believe they wore the gold last home match because it was against Bethlehem Steel and they are another PA team so they wanted to wear the traditional Pittsburgh colors...although that is admittedly only speculation. Teams often wear their secondary kits at home depending on the opponent and their kits, as I'm sure you know. The picture of Chevaughn Walsh does not show him holding the gold shirt...that is a scarf. The team store does not label the blue or gold shirts as either home or away so that cannot be used as justification in this case. We've discussed before that, yes, the profile pictures show them wearing the gold kits but that does not prove that they are the kits they wear at home. I also told you that the team did a weird 1/2 rebrand this year and although they may switch to gold as the primary colors as early as next season, it hasn't happened yet. I attended the fan fest that the team had before the season started this year and the blue kits were introduced as the primaries. If you ever go to a match at Highmark Stadium, you will see that EVERYTHING is blue. Including the stadium itself. I have written about this topic and included reliable source in the "Kit" section of the page with clearly states that the Gold kits are only a few years old and have ever only been worn as secondary kits. I'm not sure why it's such a point of contention for you.--Gri3720 (talk) 19:02, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Just want it to be accurate - you get really defensive about it. You basically want ownership of the Riverhounds article as far as I can tell. There's a Chevaughn Walsh picture of him holding the gold shirt also, not just the gold scarf. deathgripz 21:53, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

The only edits I have ever reverted are yours when you insist on changing the colors. Check the history of reverts and edits if you'd like. There are at least four of us from Pittsburgh that maintain the article regularly in addition to other random contributors. I'd hardly call wanting one of the main identifying factors of the club to be accurate wanting "ownership" or being defensive. You just force the issue based on a felling rather than experience or secondary resources. In 6 months from now, the club may do a full rebrand and this might be a none issue. --Gri3720 (talk) 00:51, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Ways to improve Christopher Díaz[edit]

Hi, I'm Teblick. UncleTupelo1, thanks for creating Christopher Díaz!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Please try to find more references. Not only will they enhance the credibility of this article, but they will provide more information to flesh it out a bit.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Information icon Hello, I'm Qed237. I noticed that you made an edit concerning content related to a living (or recently deceased) person on Nicklas Bendtner, but you didn't support your changes with a citation to a reliable source, so I removed it. Wikipedia has a very strict policy concerning how we write about living people, so please help us keep such articles accurate and clear. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you! Qed237 (talk) 12:46, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did at Jonathan Lewis (soccer), without citing a reliable source using an inline citation that clearly supports the material. The burden is on the person wishing to keep in the material to meet these requirements, as a necessary (but not always sufficient) condition. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. GiantSnowman 17:30, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Timestamp[edit]

Hi.

When you update statistics please remember that you should also update the timestamps as of when the stats are correct. This is done by manually updating the date above or below the statistics table. By doing this we show when the stats were last updated and it prevents other editors from accidentally updating the stats again.

Please keep this in mind. Thank you. Qed237 (talk) 12:48, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Orlando City SC[edit]

It look like one of your edits on Orlando City SC was caught-up in a copyvio revert. All revisions deleted. Do you recall what you added? Can you add it back? Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:29, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Admin was careful. Nothing lost. See comment here. Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:35, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

When you create articles it's usually best to co-create a talk page for associated Wikiprojects, which in the case of footballers would probably be {{WikiProject Biography}}, {{Football}} and whatever wikiproject corresponds most closely to the person's geographic area, like {{WikiProject California}} in the case of Jackson Yueill.

Also, since you've created several hundred articles, and they seem to be of pretty good quality, you may want to consider applying at Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled, which will prevent your new articles from contributing to the backlog for the New Pages Patrol.

Sockpuppet investigation[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/UncleTupelo1, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.
