April 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), such as at Talk:Air Canada Centre, please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 14:21, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Ager Aketxe[edit]

Hi there,

can you please help me keep this in check? Getting beyond ridiculous, no need to mention his jersey number over and over AND OVER again...

Thanks in advance, happy editing --81.193.141.118 (talk) 19:27, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Meh, I don't care that much to get involved in an edit war re: jersey numbers. Or with the Stadium name/Cadiz name - both those ways sound good to me, so I'm fine with either. RedPatchBoys (talk) 02:42, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Auro stats[edit]

I added the table at the beginning of last year. I Can't really remember this specific edit. I likely looked at the wrong column and put the minutes as the total matches played. Kingjeff (talk) 02:06, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Ok thanks, I thought that might have been the case, I just wanted to check before I edited it. RedPatchBoy (talk) 02:13, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

2020 CSL season[edit]

Hey RedPatchBoy, thanks for your help I really appreciate your edits because it finally gives me a chance to focus on other articles instead of the CSL related ones. Every since that dispute with the CSA around 2013-2015 the Canadian soccer community has really neglected and treated this league as some kind of roadkill so your help is really appreciated and don't worry as long as your doing constructive and objective edits on the topic (as I see your are) your edits are welcomed and even encouraged. Now to your question that's a tough one. The only reason I included those stats was to continue the tradition from previous seasons. I guess we can look at the CPL and MLS 2020 season pages and see if they included those stats as an example. Shotgun pete (talk) 21:14, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hi there again, same here. Yes, great work overall from you in Ager Aketxe, i "pitch" here and there too...

Take care from Portugal, thanks for the kind message and happy editing as well (PS i do have an account, this here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Quite_A_Character). I have no problem whatsoever editing from the IP occasionally, as mine is static and therefore people can easily contact me - or "scold" me if they think i'm disrupting/vandalising)! --81.193.141.118 (talk) 22:31, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

@81.193.141.118 Good to know. So if I see that username I'll know who you are. If you want a good laugh, since I saw the edit summary for Victor Vazquez about the lottery ticket, I was laughing until I realized it was from my edit. But it turns out I have Google to blame for that LOL https://i.imgur.com/bzA8mXJ.png RedPatchBoy (talk) 01:45, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Daily Mail reference at FC Santa Claus[edit]

DYK for FC Santa Claus[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 24 December 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article FC Santa Claus, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that a football club in Finland called FC Santa Claus has competed as high as the third tier? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/FC Santa Claus. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, FC Santa Claus), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (ie, 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Merry Christmas to you as well User:The C of E. Thanks for the help in improving the article. RedPatchBoy (talk) 20:53, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

FC Kalamazoo crest[edit]

Good morning! I wanted to touch base, after you made an edit to the Kalamazoo page the crest got deleted for "not having permission". I think what happened was your edit attracted the attention of a bot or fair use patroller to an old image file. Did you change the file itself? Or just the scale in the info box? If you did change the file (e.g. uploaded a hi-res version) please keep in mind for future edits that for most low-tier soccer clubs in the US, we must prove fair use, so that means low-res and filling out the permissions form. Thanks and happy holidays! Pirmas697 (talk) 16:59, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Pirmas697:, I didn't change the file, just resized it on the page (not the image itself). However, I looked into it and the file was uploaded on Wikimedia Commons. Those fair use files for articles should be uploaded on Wikipedia itself, which is probably why it got deleted from Wikimedia, since those fair type of images are not allowed there. The file was actually recommended for deletion on the 16th, several days before my edit on the 22nd, and then automatically deleted 7 days later (the 23rd). I'll reupload a copy of it under fair use on Wikipedia itself. Happy holidays RedPatchBoy (talk) 17:13, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Links to draft articles[edit]

Information icon Please do not introduce links in actual articles to draft articles, as you did to League1 Ontario. Since a draft is not yet ready for the main article space, it is not in shape for ordinary readers, and links from articles should not go to a draft. Such links are contrary to the Manual of Style. These links have been removed. Thank you. - Arjayay (talk) 10:37, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Alliance United[edit]

Wexford SC is detailed on the AU page as being part of it. GiantSnowman 17:39, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Tomato, tomato... GiantSnowman 17:46, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
AU "was formed as a partnership between two youth clubs - Markham FC and Wexford SC". That is not the same as a feeder club set up as you suggest. GiantSnowman 17:54, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
No, it's standard to have a category for every club that has at least 2/3 players - and with scope for expansion. GiantSnowman 18:04, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Exactly, every cloud ;) GiantSnowman 19:36, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Dylan Carreiro[edit]

Please can you re-organise the career stats table? Per MOS there is not a 'Playoffs' column, there is an 'Other' column which is at the end of the row and not next to league... GiantSnowman 15:28, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

@GiantSnowman: I feel that a Playoffs column should be added to the MOS given it is a key part of North American leagues (for Carreiro, given he had limited playoff games, I can see the rationale for it being in Other, I'll just add a note). Similar to how State League was allowed for Brazilian players. I'll pose this question to establish consensus on that. On another note, why did you revert the date format to DMY citing MOS:DATEFORMAT? MOS:DATEFORMAT states "Articles on topics with strong ties to a particular English-speaking country should generally use the date format most commonly used in that nation", while it does say "Articles related to Canada or Israel may use either format with (as always) consistency within each article" that is because the province of Quebec uses DMY, the rest of Canada uses MDY. Carreiro being a non-Quebec native of Canada should thus use MDY. RedPatchBoy (talk) 15:51, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
Disagree on the playoffs column but that's a discussion for elsewhere. Ad for the date, please see WP:DATETIES - "Articles related to Canada or Israel may use either format with (as always) consistency within each article" - and WP:DATEVAR - "The date format chosen in the first major contribution in the early stages of an article (i.e., the first non-stub version) should continue to be used". DMY is the longstanding format. GiantSnowman 15:54, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
I get that rule but it doesn't make sense given that 99% of non-Quebec Canadian players use use MDY. I feel it should be consistent. Every article I create I tend to use MDY out of habit, but then I end up changing it based on the nation/area of the player. I get that you created the article and probably chose DMY out of habit since you're in England, but for a Canadian player it should've been created in MDY. I get the rule exists for disagreements, but as someone who lives in Canada, I can say for certainty that MDY in the dominant form used. RedPatchBoy (talk) 16:02, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Collaboration[edit]

I absolutely feel the same way, and thanks for reaching out. I can disagree with people (even repeatedly!) and still get on with them...after all we're both here for the same reasons. GiantSnowman 17:24, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Talk:Evergreen FC[edit]

Err any reason why you posted using my signature? GiantSnowman 18:00, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

@GiantSnowman:Whoops sorry. I copied the template from one of the other Rename Requests when posting it one of the WP FOOTY page and guess I forgot to change the name. I really should just put one in my sandbox instead of always coping from an active one. I changed it to mine now. RedPatchBoy (talk) 18:04, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
The 'original' template is at WP:FOOTYDEL. GiantSnowman 18:05, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Good to know. Sorry again. Egg on my face. I really should've noticed that it's on top of that table I always edit. I've been copying and pasting old ones and just changing the signature all this time. RedPatchBoy (talk) 18:07, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
