Improved sectional structure
After my recent check of how the member list developed during the past 7 month, I this morning realised we had an urgent need to also improve the sectional structure of the member list. The fact that the list started with a section title named "Members", ment that 5 out of 50 new members accidently pushed the "Members" edit buttom, and browsed down to the buttom of the edit window -where they accidently added their name at the buttom of the "Former member list". To avoid such mistakes in the future, I simply just removed the title named "Members", so that we now only have "Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Members" as main title, followed by the two sections named "Active members" and "Former members". Hereby the risk of mixing up the two lists is now greatly reduced.
By the way, it is fully intentional that the former member list also currently lack a number coloumn, with the same reason of working as a visible layout differention to the "Active member list" -in order to avoid confusion what list the reader is currently looking at. Perhaps it could also be considered at a later point of time, simply to create a subpage dedicated only to show the list of "Former members", in order to achieve an optimal differentation between the two lists. On the other hand, many will however appreciate that both the "Active member list" and "Former member list" is covered by the same page (as 2 lists in 1 page makes it possible by a single click to "browser-search" both lists for a certain name). So for now, I opted to keep it structured with both lists at the same page. Danish Expert (talk) 06:28, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Darren Mattocks wiki page photo source
I'm the photographer who took the picture that is currently being used on the Darren Mattocks (Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS) wiki page (as of 8/8/12). I don't mind it being used and I'm thrilled it was chosen for inclusion, as my photos have a Creative Commons license. However, I only ask that the photo be attributed to me and if possible, with a link. I'm brand new to Wikipedia so I don't know how to edit such things and I don't want to try for fear of screwing up the other content. Please show me how to include my attribution or please make the edit for me.
Here is my Flickr page for reference: http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulottaviano/
and the specific photo, which was cropped for inclusion here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulottaviano/7338767190/in/photostream
I can provide other details, files, and witnesses for additional proof if necessary.
Again, I'm new to Wikipedia so if this request should have been transmitted somewhere else or by other means I do apologize for that.
Thank you for choosing the photo I took! I do have more good ones of him if you're interested.
How do you find out whether a members is in-active in football related article or failed to post any football related edits during the past 6 months. Is it a Bot.Certain users are displayed as inactive. KAS(talk) 07:05, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
