Question Yankees10[edit]

What's your prediction for the Packers this year? --Crawlin King Snake Discuss 03:54, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Yankees10, ignore this user. Was just blocked as a repeated sock. Feel free to erase this section. Cheers. Amccann421 (talk) 03:00, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

New PFHOF navbox[edit]

Hey, Y10. I just saw your newest handiwork: Template:Pro Football Hall of Fame members. In order to facilitate to easy use by your readers, I suggest that you combine both classes of player and then divide them into 4 or 5 clusters alphabetically (e.g., A-E, F-J, K-0, P-T, U-Z). Just a friendly suggestion, sir. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 02:19, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Yeah I considered that and a few other ideas. I'll toy around with it over the next few days and weeks. After spending the whole day putting it on articles though I gotta take a break from it, I'm so tired of looking at it, haha.--Yankees10 02:53, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Mass revert[edit]

Hi Yankees10, I'm an admin on the English Wikipedia. I've noticed your reverts of a number of my reverts. Just so you know, my edits were part of a mass rollback of a disruptive IP editor and were discussed by Bbb23 and myself. I'm only mentioning this in case your anti-vandal hackles go up. I've no plan to revert your revert if you think the changes he submitted were legit. Sorry for the extra work. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:43, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Yes, he seems to continually cause drama and often reverts things needlessly. Bleucheeses (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 01:55, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Cincinnati Reds/Redlegs[edit]

Hi Yankees10. I noticed that you changed the category of Cincinnati Redlegs for Luis Arroyo. Let me explain something. In April 1953, Cincinnati officially changed the name of the team to the Cincinnati Redlegs, and the Reds reappeared in 1960. As for Arroyo, he played in the 1959 team [1]. Thanks for your attention. MusiCitizen (talk) 21:13, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

  • ??? Check again @MusiCitizen:, I didn't change the category. I changed the infobox which had incorrectly said just "Reds".--Yankees10 21:18, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
You're right, sorry for that. MusiCitizen (talk) 21:28, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
No big deal.--Yankees10 21:31, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Wade Boggs[edit]

Hi Yankees10, I saw that you reverted back the picture of Wade Boggs to the one with the Yankees cap. I though that since his number is getting retired by the Red Sox in May and that he is much more a part of the Red Sox organization than the New York Stankees that he ought to be wearing a Red Sox uniform on his page. He's wearing a Sox cap on his Cooperstown plaque after all. Was the problem with my picture that it was dated or that he was wearing a Sox cap? Thanks.

I finally updated your free agent wording from 8+ years ago. Just thought it was funny. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 15:42, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Free Agent!!! Oh wow, haha, we had a guy that hasn't played in 10 years still listed as a free agent. I can't believe nobody has noticed this and changed it. Thanks for the update.--Yankees10 17:26, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Hank Aaron[edit]

Unless you have a certainly good reason to why the content I added was not worthy of being on Aaron's page, don't remove it. The Baseball Guy (talk) 19:50, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Tony George (American football)[edit]

Hello, I noticed your two revertions on Tony George (American football). Please note, you were reverting the edits of a new user, and I would like to recommend that you use warning templates to further explain to the user why their additions, or contributions are inappropriate or not meeting the standards of Wikipedia. While in this case the user continued to readd the content after I left a paragraph explaining, they could have responded for the better after learning our rules and guidelines through a warning. -- Cheers, Riley 07:42, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

why are you reverting my page?..the info on there is grossly incorrect and incomplete...please stopMsSDelaney (talk) 08:22, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

the last change you made i had already removed all the copy and pasted info..i am rewriting that part..but what was up was non bias non copied and factual. you do not know this person, you are vandalizing his biography for fun. please stop. i understand you started this page. but you did it incorrectly and omitted a lotMsSDelaney (talk) 08:25, 7 February 2016 (UTC).

I don't see why putting a little more information in the article for people who could be strictly MLB fans and they don't know who the teams are it links them to the league I don't see why you have a problem with it. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 19:54, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Since we both are making a lot of edits to NFL infoboxes and the discussions about them seem to have died out on WP:NFL and elsewhere, might as well start a discussion here. Are there any specific things you think shouldn't be included in infoboxes? I noticed you removing Pittsburgh Pro Football Hall of Fame. It seems the Steelers do have a ton of team awards, and notable former players would likely receive most of them. I'd be in favor of nuking them along with other teams' awards. Also the reason I removed the season links from some articles such as on Steve Van Buren was that I noticed Dirtlawyer had started removing some before his disappearance, citing WP:OLINK. I'm on the fence about that one so I hadn't started mass-removing them. I do agree with the grouping of Pro Bowls, All-Pro, etc. since every other pro sport uses that format. Lizard (talk) 23:24, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

@Lizard the Wizard: The Pittsburgh Pro Football Hall of Fame from what I can tell is extremely minor. In fact if somebody AFD'd the article i'm not certain it would even make it. I didn't check the article histories, but i'm gonna guess that one user/IP decided to add those at one time. Another thing I think needs to go and what I've been removing is the redundant "AFC/NFC champion" if the team won the Super Bowl that year (see my edit on Mark Tauscher for example). I'd also be in favor of removing minor team awards (Steelers MVP, Rams ROY, etc). As far as removing season links, thats something that's been done for the 10 years that I've been here. MLB and NBA also continue to do it. If we're gonna remove them, that's something i'd like to get a larger consensus on before the removal is continued.--Yankees10 23:56, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
Yeh, we should keep obviously notable ones though like retired numbers and maybe some others I may not be thinking of. I'm at odds with the "no longer issued" jersey claims since those are usually poorly sourced, if sourced at all, and there could be multiple reasons a player's jersey hasn't been issued since he retired. But that's one thing I hate about infoboxes as a whole, how easily accessible they are to edit and people just accept anything that's in them. Lizard (talk) 05:43, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
I also think it's redundant to have HOF inductions in the highlights section, since they're already displayed with a neon yellow banner. Lizard (talk) 23:28, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
Agreed. I've removed it in the past but i've forgotten to remove it with my latest edits. I'll try to remember to do so.--Yankees10 23:36, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
The more I look at other North American sports' infoboxes such as MLB and NBA, the more I realize how neglected NFL infoboxes have been. I've never seen a formatting or styling issue in an MLB or NBA infobox, but for NFL infoboxes it's almost expected. I wonder why that is. Also is there any reason why George Halas uses infobox gridiron football person? Lizard (talk) 00:54, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia:WikiProject Baseball/Player style advice and Wikipedia:WikiProject National Basketball Association/Style advice I think I have a big reason to do with this. The NFL needs to adopt this. I don't know what the deal is with Halas. I've had to convert a few also over the last few weeks. I can't believe there are still articles using that infobox.--Yankees10 01:48, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
My theory for Halas is that Template:infobox military person can't be embedded into the NFL bio/player infobox for some reason. Earlier in the week I asked Frietjes about it for Template:infobox college football player and she had to add a module parameter to it so it would work. Lizard (talk) 02:01, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
That could be why. Still doesn't explain some of the other ones (like Joel Steed for example). --Yankees10 02:05, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
It's not a big deal either way, but do you think the "First" in "2× First-team..." should be capitalized? Is the "2×" considered the beginning of the sentence? Doesn't look like I can use the NBA for reference since it uses a completely different format, and the NFL infobox template page conveniently neglects that scenario. Also, Pittsburgh Steelers All-Time Team (50th Season), Pittsburgh Steelers All-Time Team, Pittsburgh Steelers Legends team, Pittsburgh Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Steelers have more "best ofs" than a washed-up country singer. Lizard (talk) 02:29, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
I kind of like it being capitalized, but I don't have a strong opinion. To be honest I kind of just wished we merged all the All-Pro's to save room. Haha washed up country singer. I like that one.--Yankees10 07:20, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
How should we handle NFL champions from '66 to '69? Should we include them in infoboxes along with Super Bowls of the same year? They were still technically "NFL" champions at the time since the leagues hadn't yet merged. I think a lot of people get confused when getting into those years. Admittedly I only just recently began to understand that mess. Lizard (talk) 18:23, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
Yeah I think we keep them based on your reasoning.--Yankees10 18:59, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
I've started a rough draft of sorts here to try to lay out guidelines. Some of them are based on the norm and some are common sense. Feel free to make any adjustments. Lizard (talk) 19:41, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
Nice. I'll try to think of other things to add.--Yankees10 20:51, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hold the phone... Wikipedia:WikiProject National Football League#Article Formats. Is there a reason "Player Pages" is empty? Has no one gotten to it? Why do some sections on the project page use capital case? Why so many things. But most importantly, if that Player Pages article is fair game I think we should get to that ASAP. Lizard (talk) 16:00, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Interesting. I never even realized any of those existed.--Yankees10 16:31, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Yeh... Maybe because they're hidden beneath a massive wall of "Achievements" which really should be moved toward the bottom, like on WikiProject College football. I went ahead and moved it and started on Wikipedia:WikiProject National Football League/Player pages format. Let's see how well this goes. Lizard (talk) 17:08, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
"... career leader in passing yards, passing touchdowns, passing attempts, pass completions, interceptions, wins..." Do we want these? From what I've seen it's one editor adding all of these. They usually take up a lot of space, especially with players who are obviously first in all of those categories, e.g. Brett Favre, Tom Brady. Lizard (talk) 17:15, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm good with removing them or maybe just keeping it to touchdowns and yards. I have no idea why this user considers interceptions to be a highlight.--Yankees10 17:24, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
I think we should do away with miscellaneous in the infobox. Have only named awards/achievements, and a separate section for NFL records. See Barry Bonds and Wilt Chamberlain. Something like this would probably require consensus from WP:NFL but I'm realizing they hardly pay any mind to anything posted there. Lizard (talk) 22:50, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, i'm good with that.--Yankees10 00:34, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

I'm about to just assume WP:SILENCE on my infobox proposal. The fact that no one has tried to standardize it before now just shows how little people care about it anyway. In my opinion we should care about infoboxes since they serve as a summary of a player's career, and are frequently copy-pasted outside of Wikipedia. But I'm preaching to the choir here. Lizard (talk) 03:09, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Yeah it's sad that there were such few responses. Any idea what happened to DirtLawyer? His input is always great with these type of things.--Yankees10 03:29, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
A few others and I have been trying to figure out what happened to him for about a month now. We emailed him a few times but never got a response, even from his personal email. Things really came to a screeching halt when he disappeared. Feels like progress has gone flat. Lizard (talk) 03:33, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Is there a consensus/understanding/anything that suggests the AP NFL MVP award is the "official" award? Is the NEA, SN, PFW, Bert Bell, etc all just chopped liver? I feel like there was a point at some time where the AP one became the primary award. But it wasn't always that way, so we get infoboxes like Y. A. Tittle. Should we continue to do it that way? Should we come up with a cutoff point? Could the Warriors beat the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls? Lizard (talk) 23:03, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

I'm not 100% sure, but I think you're right. Those were all big deals at a time but not so much now. I'm not a big fan of how it's presented now like it is on Tittle's but i'm not sure how else to do it. And hell no the Warriors ain't beating those Bulls. 4-2 Bulls in a seven game series.--Yankees10 23:39, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Looks like he's back. Maybe? At least we know he isn't dead now, lol. Lizard (talk) 20:08, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

I think we should spell out "touchdowns" and "interceptions" in the statistics section. I don't see any reason why they should be abbreviated. There's almost no situation where abbreviating them would save a line in the infobox. What's worse is when I see it in prose. Really grinds my jimmies. Lizard (talk) 00:02, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Absolutely. That's something I always try to change whenever I see it.--Yankees10 00:07, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

(Disclaimer: The following is half rhetorical) Read the lead of 2015 All-Pro Team and then explain to me why many editors recognize only the AP team when listing All-Pro selections. "none of the All-Pro teams have the official imprimatur of the NFL (whose official recognition is nomination to the 2016 Pro Bowl)" and "Any player selected to the first-team of any of the teams can be described as an "All-Pro"." I'm not sure about the accuracy of this; maybe it's original research. But if this is an accepted policy, there's no reason why a PFF selection should be removed 3 times in 24 hours, all by IPs, no less. Which tells me these people are most likely clicking on the wikilink to 2013 All-Pro Team and not finding his name, coming back and removing it. Why are only those 3 selectors listed if any player selected to any of the teams can be called an "All-Pro?" Again, I don't really expect anyone can answer these questions but if there are answers I'd like to know them. Lizard (talk) 02:18, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Your guess is as good as mine, honestly.--Yankees10 03:05, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

I expanded Rashard Robinson that you created but then realized he most likely doesn't meet WP:NGRIDIRON... oh well. Lizard (talk) 03:13, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Most drafted players meet WP:GNG. Looks like Robinson passes.--Yankees10 03:20, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Eh I'm not too familiar with GNG so I'll trust your judgement. Lizard (talk) 03:25, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

I'm also getting rid of the "NFL" and "College" subsections in the highlights. Basketball lists them all as one (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan... baseball couldn't care less about college for some reason) and it gets confusing for lifetime honors that aren't pro or college specific. Lizard (talk) 06:19, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

I kind of like it separated but if you think that's how we should do it i'll go with it.--Yankees10 06:32, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
It only became an issue with me when I got to things like Virginia Sports Hall of Fame. Of course, if we were strictly following the basebal and basketball model the highlights would exclude non–sport specific honors. But screw that part of the model lol. Lizard (talk) 07:30, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Just wondering, why does User:Footballfan1 redirect to your userpage? I'm planning on moving inactive editors to their own section under WP:NFL#Participants and I was wondering, because if it's an old alias I'll just remove it entirely. Lizard (talk) 03:43, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Yeah it was a side account I used to create former NFL players. I have no idea why I wanted a separate account to do this. I didn't want people to know it was me at the time because I thought second accounts were not allowed under any circumstances.--Yankees10 03:50, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Ah yes, wouldn't want to go through what someone we know went through. Lizard (talk) 04:00, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that was bullshit.--Yankees10 06:43, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
lol. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 11:51, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Jesus H. Christ. This guy must spend his waking hours watching this page. Makes no edits for nearly a week, then within 30 minutes reverts (manually) back the track and field stuff. Lizard (talk) 14:35, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

I hate when players also ran track. Some editors go way overboard with the track info.--Yankees10 16:52, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
They're back again. I think we should start a discussion at WP:NFL about if non-football achievements belong in infoboxes, for the sake of having something to reference in the future. Lizard (talk) 17:59, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
Agreed.--Yankees10 18:01, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

I think the problem is that there's a large amount of people who don't recognize what a defensive back is. They recognize safety and cornerback, but don't realize those are both defensive back positions. Lizard (talk) 17:47, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, exactly. I don't know why people don't seem to understand this.--Yankees10 17:54, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Completely unrelated, but how about Kershaw this season. 88 strikeouts and 4 walks. Has hit only 1 batter. 1.67 ERA, and he had a game where he allowed 5 runs. A 0.7 WHIP. The man isn't real. Lizard (talk) 16:55, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

He's absolutely unreal. Best pitcher i've seen since the days of prime Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson.--Yankees10 17:05, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

The more I think about it, the more I find the reaction (or lack thereof) to the infobox proposal odd. And the continuing disregard of it. There was even a discussion that took place about two months earlier that included topics I addressed in the guideline. I don't get it. But very few of my "clean-ups" have been reverted since I started, so there mustn't be any major opposition. Lizard (talk) 03:04, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Lo and behold. Just today there's three separate reversions of my clean ups. Your input at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject National Football League#Seasonal passer rating leaders in infobox would be appreciated. Lizard (talk) 01:03, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
Not sure if you remember this, but last week I noticed Harrison Smith's college career was also heavily closely paraphrased from his college bio. Was the same IP. We had to rollback Smith's page nearly a year and a half. Not sure how many of those other edits are copyvio but I'm willing to bet most of them are. Lizard (talk) 20:54, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
That IP is editing under User:Gcveintee now. He/she has added copy/paste stuff in the past. I hadn't been paying attention closely to see if this user still does that, but i'm guessing they do.--Yankees10 21:08, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Confronted an editor about abbreviating touchdowns to TDs. I probably should have scrolled through his talk page first before assuming he was reasonable. User:Joeykai. Looks like you and WO-9 have a history with him. Lizard (talk) 16:40, 11 June 2016 (UTC) Lizard (talk) 14:57, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Joeykai is alright now. Most of the issues I've had with this user are from the past and are generally no longer an issue. I think the problem might have been that he didn't know how to use the talk page and the messages weren't seen so they were ignored. His first response to a message was mine from January 2015 (he could have responded on the messengers talk page I guess, but I don't recall getting responses on mine from him). Anyways hopefully your message isn't just ignored.--Yankees10 17:39, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

What do you think of NFL Alumni awards? They give out a player of the year award at every position, so they're littered in infoboxes everywhere (see Todd Heap), but the article gives no references to support its notability and it hasn't been updated for the past four seasons' winners. I do think it's worth an article, but I'm not sure if their awards hold enough weight to include in the infobox. Lizard (talk) 02:08, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

I say remove.--Yankees10 02:14, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Could I get you to comment at Template talk:Infobox NFL biography#Championships listed first. Lizard (talk) 03:52, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Free agents[edit]

How do I know when to make the restricted and exclusive right free agents actually listed as a free agent (like on that link it has Case Keenum as a restricted free agent should I list him as it?) Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 02:17, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

@Kingryan227: Just leave them how they are for now. Restricted free agents are technically not even free agents and almost never sign with another team.--Yankees10 03:06, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Kiko Alonso, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rose Bowl (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Very belatedly contested deletion proposal[edit]

I'm not sure if this is a record, but I have just restored an article as a result of a contested PROD, which was contested just short of seven years after the PROD. The article was Alley Broussard, which you proposed for deletion in April 2009, and restoration has been requested at Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion. I have restored the article, as required by the policy on WP:PROD, but I have no opinion on whether the subject is notable enough for a Wikipedia article. I am informing you so that you have the option of taking it to Articles for Deletion if you still think it should be deleted. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:36, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

@JamesBWatson: If it's a record let me know. I'll wear it with pride. Lizard (talk) 21:14, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

The article violates[edit]

WP:VERIFY, and it has since it was populated. The easy thing is reversion. The hard work is returning paragraph by paragraph, with sources, so it complies with Wikipedia policy. This is a clear case of plagiarism. Do the hard work. Make the article encyclopedic, day by day, until it is suitable here. The violation has gone on long enough. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 02:57, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Mike Strong listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Mike Strong. Since you had some involvement with the Mike Strong redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Spanneraol (talk) 15:00, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Dean Davidson[edit]

He is not primarily known as Dizzy, if he was his article would be called Dizzy Davidson. I don't see why you would need to have that there if he isn't primarily known as Dizzy. Leggomygreggo8 (talk) 17:10, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

There is "Dizzy Dean" in his name. It's common sense for this to be a hatnote. --Yankees10 17:13, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
Then why is Dizzy not in his article name? Leggomygreggo8 (talk) 17:19, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
That's irrelivant. The article title is not required to be someone's nickname. He may also be known as Dizzy, just not primarily. See Gus Tinsley. Lizard (talk) 18:04, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Quick request[edit]

I noticed you are adding navboxes to the drafted players, so could you also add the roster navbox as well? It would save time for everybody else. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 00:55, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

I haven't really added any of the navboxes to the articles. I've just added players to Template:2016 NFL Draft. Others are adding them.--Yankees10 01:01, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Arrrgh I was doing homework and completely forgot the draft was tonight. Is there anything that needs doing or do you guys have a lock on it? Lizard (talk) 02:25, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Devin Fuller[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 6 May 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Devin Fuller, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that American football player Devin Fuller toured as a youngster with singer Luther Vandross? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Devin Fuller. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Devin Fuller), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

NFL Undrafted free agent infobox[edit]

We should absolutely change infoboxes to NFL infoboxes for those players that entered the draft, became undrafted free agents, but were not signed by a team. It should be noted in the infoxbox the year in which they entered the draft and went undrafted. I can understand not changing it for guys like Texas quarterback David Ash who retired in the middle of his college career due to concussions. He retired as a college football player and never entered the NFL draft. Outside of those players, those that finished their college careers and entered the NFL draft should be noted that way with NFL infoboxes, whether they signed with a team or not.Edday1051 (talk) 02:54, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Well I find it illogical to change the infobox for a guy that didn't even sign. I'll start a discussion at WP:NFL when I get a chance to see what others think because this isn't going anywhere.--Yankees10 02:56, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) That might be something to bring up on the talk page of template:Infobox college football player, since that's the page that states: "If a former college football player played in one or more regular season games in the NFL, APFA, AAFC, AFL or Arena Football League, the article about such player should usually employ Template:Infobox NFL player. If a former college football player was a member of an NFL preseason or practice squad, but never played in a regular season NFL game, then the article about him should generally use this template." Lizard (talk) 03:09, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
Yeah I'll let the college football people know of the discussion too.--Yankees10 03:13, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

He was literally just called up [3]. Do not ignore the under construction tag please.--Yankees10 17:12, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
That's why I just removed the challenged material and didn't delete the article outright. —C.Fred (talk) 17:14, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
And you would have been in the wrong. Using the under construction tag obviously meant more was coming.--Yankees10 17:22, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but a source of some kind is critical in the first edit. Especially when it's a page that's on my watchlist because somebody else had created it (for another, unrelated person) before. —C.Fred (talk) 17:33, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

a message from liam kasbar[edit]

Look, I don't think you were trying to vandalize, so I'm not mad, nor will I accuse you of any malicious actions. But, when it comes to birth and death dates (for example: May 14, 1902 – June 18, 1985), you use an n dash ( – ), not a hyphen ( - ), which you placed when you reverted my edit. Also, the use of the m dash ( — ) is just as improper as using the hyphen. I hope we have an understanding here, and I hope you have a great rest of your day.

It's called an accident. I accidentally pressed the rollback while scrolling through my watchlist. I reverted by edit with the summary "not intentional".--Yankees10 17:16, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

He never was a part of the Steelers, during the season, being on the team only during the offseason doesn't make you a Steelers player. But if you feel that strongly I will leave the category, but the rest of my changes were valid and will put them back in. Tecmo (talk) 03:24, 29 May 2016 (UTC)


In my opinion, baseball wiki should get on the same page as the other sports, kinda like how baseball itself should get on the same page as the other sports.

Proposed deletion of Jeremy McBryde[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jeremy McBryde has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable minor league baseball player

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. Wizardman 15:29, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

I don't feel that strongly one way or the other, but to me, the NPB stats look unfinished without home runs, even if the total is 0. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 16:03, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

I don't know it just seems kind of odd to list a stat as zero. To be really honest though I don't even think it's necessary to list the NPB stats considering he played only 15 games there and had only 54 at bats. I'd also remove the NPB debut and final game. It makes the infobox larger than it has to be.--Yankees10 16:59, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

I agree he's notable, that's not why I'm writing you. I looked at the article history though and it says making the page was the first edit. That can't be right, there must've been a redirect there for the past few years, no? What happened to it? – Muboshgu (talk) 17:44, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Oh. Honestly it may not matter that much, but I think it's better to keep the full article history. – Muboshgu (talk) 20:06, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
I don't think it makes much of a difference as long as I didn't delete others work/edits. It's not something I do with all the re-directs I make anyway.--Yankees10 20:21, 21 June 2016 (UTC)


Thinking you are going to be ridiculous but let me appeal to some sensibilities you may possess. Vulgarity is not necessary in this instance. You even use similar words on your own wiki pages so thinking you'll be rational - nope. Obviously you are a heavy user of Wikipedia. I don't relish controversy but when I feel you are wrong I will let you know. Think of the tens of millions of users on here that can figure out for themselves what word is being inferred. Also many are under 18. Bleucheeses (talk) 08:30, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

I saw that the Edgar Martinez Award wasn't on the list of info box highlights after I added it to his accolades. Just wondering, but why isn't considered an info box highlight?

Like are they seriously not understanding after all of these month's why it keeps getting reverted? There's even a hidden message explaining it and they still change it.--Yankees10 17:14, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Asking for trouble[edit]

I sometimes wonder about statements like the one in Josh Norman's lead that keeps getting removed. He's obviously one of the most high-profile and polarizing players out there today, so something like that just screams NPOV issue. Revis' lead has the exact same sentence, which brings up another issue: those sources are from 4 years ago. Revis is obviously not as good as he used to be. How long do we wait before either removing it or rewording it? P.S. thanks for Derrius Guice. I actually had the page watched before you even created it because I knew you would eventually lol. He's gonna be something special. Lizard (talk) 20:17, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Hmm good point, not really sure. Because yeah Revis clearly isn't an elite CB anymore, especially after being taken to school by AJ Green the other day. So maybe it is best to avoid including these type of things in the intros and just let their All-Pros/Pro Bowl selections do the talking. And no problem on Guice. Last Saturday was just a little taste of what Tigers' fans should expect next year until he bolts for the Draft right after that haha.--Yankees10 20:35, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
I just realized Norman's page isn't even protected. We're way too lax compared to the MLB and NBA projects when it comes to protection. Lizard (talk) 05:23, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Edits to NFL lists (e.g. List of National Football League receiving yards leaders)[edit]

I just undid changes you made to a bunch of NFL lists for players with the most yards/touchdowns/etc., such as List of National Football League receiving yards leaders. Each of those lists includes a section with active players who are close to entering the list. The players listed in those sections are those who could enter the list with a single very good season. While that information isn't strictly necessary in those articles, I think it is useful to include. I don't agree with your statement of "not what the article is for" on one of those edits, since listing who is close to entering the list seems relevant to the topics of those lists. If you disagree, please feel free to start a discussion at WT:NFL (if there already is a discussion somewhere that I'm unaware of, please let me know). Calathan (talk) 17:26, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

@Calathan: If there gonna be included the list needs to be shorter then. Including DeAngelo Williams, Arian Foster and Chris Johnson on the Rushing TD's one for example is ridiculous considering they are so far from appearing on the list.--Yankees10 17:33, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
The thresholds for each of those sections is that the players would need to gain close to the record single-season amount of touchdowns/yards/etc. to enter the list. For example, 25 rushing touchdowns when the season record is 28, or 5000 passing yards when the season record is 5,477. I think those are reasonable cutoffs, even though most of the players listed aren't likely to put up a record season. I could see it being changed to a closer cutoff, but I'm not sure that would be useful, as it might exclude players who will legitimately get onto the list in a single season. For the three you listed, I think DeAngelo Williams actually could enter the list in a single season (though only if Le'Veon Bell gets injured or suspended again). Williams would need to match his career high for a season in touchdowns to enter the list, but he already got 2 in his first game and seems to be playing well, so if for some reason Bell doesn't play much this season, I think Williams has a legitimate shot at getting there. Anyway, though, if you feel a closer cutoff is better, that is alright with me. Calathan (talk) 17:50, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
@Calathan: This is purely original research though. Nothing on Wikipedia should be arbitrary. If there's gonna be a cutoff, there should be a valid reason for that specific amount supported by reliable sources. Otherwise I don't think the sections should be included. Lizard (talk) 01:00, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
This isn't original research at all. We aren't drawing conclusions that are unsupported by sources, but instead listing numbers that are easily supported by sources. Some editorial decisions must be made in determining which numbers we should list, but making editorial decisions is essential to writing articles and not at all the same thing as original research. It is fine for us to decide which portion of the information in the source is most useful to include, and then to only include that portion. Also, note that a similar decision was made in the main portion of each list, with us generally listed only those people over a certain number when the source instead usually gives the top 250 at that statistic. I do think many of those articles have issues with sourcing (many have notes listed as references and the actual reference listed as an external link), so if you are concerned about the sourcing in those articles they could certainly use some work.

Cody Parkey[edit]

Saw you reverting a lot of vandalism on Cody Parkey. Gotta admit, some of that stuff is funny lol. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 01:55, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Yeah there was some creative ones in there haha.--Yankees10 01:59, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Here is my all-time favorite vandalism. Lizard (talk) 02:00, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

I requested semi-protection for Wentz instead of pending changes at RFPP about 2 hours ago. I honestly hate pending changes, because it gives vandals the satisfaction of being able to edit and press "save." And most of them probably don't even realize their edits won't be seen. That kinda irks me. Lizard (talk) 03:47, 26 September 2016 (UTC)


Dee Gordon bats from the opposite side for literally a single pitch and he's a switch hitter now. Whew boy. Lizard (talk) 04:26, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

I smell a sock, and it needs Odor Eaters[edit]

I have a strong suspicion that guy that just joined the Packers project and pinged us is a sock of User:ThunderFan109. And ThunderFan was probably this IP. Do you know if that IP was ever proven to be Starship9000? If so, then this guy is almost definitely Starship. Lizard (talk) 22:02, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Oh yeah that's definitely the same person. They don't seem to understand this isn't a Packers blog. I don't remember Starship9000 so i'm not sure about that part.--Yankees10 22:21, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Hmm, it could just be two different idiots but there's definitely some parallels. Starship9000 was a very prolific sock-puppeteer. I'm gonna peruse your talk archives like a total stalker and see if I can find anything definitive. For some reason, I feel like I specifically remember a user commenting on your talk claiming to be Starship9000 and asking you to please respond, but for some reason I can't find it. Lizard (talk) 22:42, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
OK, at least one sock of Starship has definitely commented on your talk page before.
  • Exhibit A: Do you recall this? That user later posted "confessions" that he was Starship on the talk pages of multiple admins. Then there was this guy, who posted a very weird message mentioning Starship9000 on another user's page. Strangely enough, M.D Jennings (the one who admitted being a sock) is indef blocked for WP:NOTHERE, and "I miss you Jordy Nelson" is blocked for sock-puppetry. It's not specified who the sockmaster is though. I find it a little odd that the when the IP who used to hound you about the Packers (who is almost definitely ThunderFan) went away, socks (likely Starship) popped up out of the blue asking you Packers-related questions.
  • Exhibit B: ThunderFan was an admitted fan of the Thunder. Starship9000 had a sock named User:Kevin Durant is AWESOME!. Additionally, a user with an eerily similar name posted some questions on your talk page very much like the ones the IP used to ask. This could easily be a coincidence but how many people out there have the Packers and Thunder as favorite teams?
I'm not really sure why I'm telling you all this lol I know there isn't anything you can do about it. But anyway, there's my case. Lizard (talk) 23:21, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah I remember all of this. I don't know why this person was so intent on me answering these questions. I answered them at first not wanting to be an ass but it got kind of annoying after awhile. These are all definitely the same person as far as i'm concerned.--Yankees10 23:31, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
What was going on here and here? Did you piss in this guy's cereal? Lizard (talk) 23:40, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Just a sock that I've caught and reported numerous times. Funny thing is this person is still editing under the IP I just haven't felt the need to report them so far.--Yankees10 23:50, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

I wasn't sure if he'd take the bait I set for him on WT:PACKERS. I have almost no doubts though that he's ThunderFan. If he's at least a little smart, if anything he probably knows I'm on to him now. Lizard (talk) 02:09, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

@Lizard the Wizard:, ThunderFan109 might be Incorrigible Troll because on Incorrigible Troll's Facebook page he said ThunderFan109 is one of his imposters and Incorrigible Troll also said "may you continue to abstain" [4] ThunderFan109 in my opinion isn't related to former sockmaster Starship9000. And Who was that guy who pinged he was a sock of ThunderFan109? --Mark Ellwitz (talk) 02:46, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
