Help with an article?
I was wondering if anyone could help with the article Paddywhackery. It's currently up for deletion and I'm finding evidence that this is a fairly widely used term in academic texts and whatnot, enough to where this would likely merit a full article on Wikipedia rather than a mention on Wikiquote. I'm still undecided on that last part, but it does seem to be potentially notable. Tokyogirl79 (｡◕‿◕｡) 04:30, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
I came across Oliver Byrne while working off Category:Articles needing link rot cleanup. I tried to cleanup the whatever links I could find, but some of the older The Irish Times articles require a subscription to access. So, I'm wondering if anyone in WP:IE can access them and either fix the bare URLs themselves or post them on Talk:Oliver Byrne for me. Also, I tried cleaning up the article a bit, but I'm not too familiar with Byrne or Irish soccer. The article sort of reads like a rap sheet by focusing on his legal problems, so I think it could do with a bit of reorganizing, balancing and expanding. Byrne seems to have been notable enough and successful enough so that there should be more to add about his accomplishments in Irish soccer or his personal life. I just can't seem to find sources that I can access. Thanks in advance. - Marchjuly (talk) 05:41, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
- The Irish Times subscription model is a problem, so I try to use other Irish papers instead. Here are a few links I found: RTE, Shelbourne FC, Irish Times and Daily Mirror at Highbeam. Also try a Google news search. For someone who is described as one of the most colorful and controversial characters in Irish football the article certainly does not convey that. I would tend to remove all the year sections and combine them into one. It would read better if edited. I don't know soccer so really can't help you. ww2censor (talk) 10:21, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
