Sorry for the mess[edit]

Thanks for cleaning up those articles I added the images to. I'm going to try and get more pictures throughout the season. The ones I can get with their helmets off are the ones I'll be striving for. DMC511 (talk) 02:44, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Nice work on the pictures. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 02:51, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I took about 200. I can upload more if you want.DMC511 (talk) 03:19, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
If you have any good ones, feel free to upload them. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 19:48, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I fixed that Kay picture you were right about. I've put in a request to fix the title of it. I've since uploaded a new picture of James and a few others.DMC511 (talk) 04:06, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

You're invited...[edit]

Note: You are invited to join the discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College football#Navigation boxes in coaching articles (again) regarding the issue of whether or not the navboxes in coaching articles should be collapsed or stay as is. Please comment there and not here. Thanks, Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 22:46, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Email PFR[edit]

For some reason I keep getting an error message when I try to email Pro-Football-Reference, so could I ask you to give it a try? I'll copy and paste the contents below. Their contact page is here. Put the subject something like "AP Comeback Player of the Year winners appears to list PFW winners".

The page which lists AP Comeback Players of the Year (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/awards/ap-comeback-player-award.htm) appears to list Pro Football Weekly's winners, not the AP's. From what I've found through newspaper research, the AP gave a comeback POY award from 1963 to 1966 and then not again until 1998. The NFL Record and Fact Book begins listing AP winners in 1998 (http://www.nfl.com/static/content/public/photo/2015/07/21/0ap3000000502939.pdf pg. 527). The Football Almanac's list of PFW's winners (https://web.archive.org/web/20100113081439/http://www.football-almanac.com/awards/NFL_Comeback_Player_of_the_Year_Award.shtml) is identical to PFR's list of AP winners, even listing multiple winners for the same years and omitting a winner in 1985.

I tried to send it and got a "504 Gateway Time-out" error, so I guess we'll just have to wait. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 01:03, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
That's the same error I get. Maybe we should email them and let them know their email doesn't work. Lizard (talk) 01:06, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
Just emailed sf@sports-reference.com. I think that's their email lol. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 01:29, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Find me an article talk page with a ton of "External links modified" messages[edit]

You know the ones. They're obnoxious and borderline spam. Legitimate talk page discussions get swallowed up in a sea of these things. I plan on discussing it with the bot owner, so I need some good examples of talk pages that are bogged down by these messages. I saw one a few days ago with like 6 in a row but I don't remember which page. Lizard (talk) 21:18, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Talk:James Jones (basketball player), even though that's partially my fault since I always archive every link, even if its live. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 20:26, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
