    Thanks

    Do peopleagree that we should try to change the articles we have before adding new player ones in for now?

    Even if we only get a few changed it is best to have some original ones imo.

    In my opinion anyone who is going to write up a full article about a player should be able to write about who they want, standard of player regardless.
    I agree with you to an extent. Good lower league players should be allowed pages, but including pages on players who aren't going to get in a playable team is backwards working at this stage. We don't yet have a profile page for Frank Lampard, for example. Once we have an established base, we can work our way down the ladder.

    Another point to consider- do we fully update every page after a new release? At the moment the little genuine player info we have is based almost entirely on FM09. What about when the nnext game comes out, or even a new patch?

    Done, cheers EDIT: Undone, he's retired

    Btw, I've updated the Priskin page
    He's retired, but not in the latest game. Smertin was in 07 and possibly 08. Either we move him to a new cat, "retired persons" (Vivean-Foe could go there too), or we keep them in "players" (as it's "FM Wiki", not "FM09 Wiki). Either way, Smertin (and MVF) aren't in any version of FM as a non-player...

    Could put them in both Players and a new Retired category - or just a Retired category would suffice

    I would say in both sections.

    Does everyone think that we should include PA numbers on the wiki? I know that some people that use the forums (eg. the LLaMa forum) do not like to read/know the PAs of players.

    I'm back, guys

    Had a lot of work with exams and coursework recently but now, that I only have one exam left, I thought that I would make my return here.

    I have been following the thread whilst working though so, I understand about the wii being down and on the player profiles section, I think that they should be original and therefore, not allowed to be copied by other sites (other fm wiki sites)

    I will get back working on the wiki soon, but I do have a lot of coursework and one exam left so, I may not be doing loads until around the 23rd.

    That's great JJay. Exactly what I was thinking of. Applied to the Simon Church page and just about to do the Pato page.

    Yeah I'll get around to fixing those - it is on my things to do - bit hectic this week as its the mrs' birthday today!

    With regards to the spoiler tags I've edited the colours on the box instead of the bright red to this - http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk...tle=Wikiupdate

    Edit: Could somebody make a list of the broken profiles and PM them to me so I can look at the cause for it - I've got a feeling its due to the ParserFunctions (which added all the accents etc.) which has messed links up

    60 images to go

    I've done the Fabregas page like Priskin, have a look if you want. I'lm going to do a couple more like it whenever I can, so make sure you write down the names of pages that are original content please

    JJay, those spoilers are much better, the fmwiki colours

    Kevin Doyle is completely original.

    It's certainly something that would need thinking about. Player stats are certainly an important part of information about a player, one would assume, but creating new screenshots every year would be laborious, to say the least. Creating one for each new patch would probably be overkill, even though stats often do change with the data updates.

    I'm of the opinion that any screenshots should be taken at the start of the game too, rather than after having had the players developed. Perhaps for players which start off rubbish but advance to become great, then a "developed" screenshot could be added within the spoiler field too, I suppose.

    But if you do choose to include screens in the long-term, it's definitely something that needs discussing. Hell, it's probably possible to create a bot to automate the task each time a new game comes out for each player there's an article about, but it would require a lot of programming know-how, and processing power obviously for the task itself.

    Well it's all about how you program it. For example, on WP there is a bot which checks the text of any new article to see if it is likely to be a copyright violation of an existing page somewhere else on the net, and tags it for speedy deletion if so with a link to the page it is likely to be a copy of. Then an admin can check if it's copied (and if the text it's copied from is copyrighted or released as free content) and either delete it or remove the tag.

    It wouldn't be impossible to write a bot that runs on a powerful computer that, once a new game is released, looks for all player articles on FMwiki, then does a search for each of those players within the game (this is why it would need to be a powerful computer, to be able to load enough players to avoid having to do the task multiple times with different leagues loaded), take a screenshot of their profile, upload it to the wiki, and then add the new image to the article.

    It's just whether there's any programmers amongst us and anyone with the computer to run it (and the willingness to pretty much give up their computer for a couple of days around the launch of each new game).

    So it's not impossible, just rather impractical. You could technically write a bot to do ANY repetitive task.

    I'll make one Serie B instead, but which one?

    No, the first one I made has been completely redone by Jod.

    EDIT: But still, I'll mix them around.

    I found the underlying cause which was the CharSet as first believed - but found the actual setting - should stop this happening in future

    Check for errors now

    Edit: You may need to move current pages with odd characters to the correct page as I did not want to run a script on the database to do this automatically incase it messed up

    Just started a page for Leicester City. Is that better content wise? Obviously missing budgets, stadium info and suggested formation/signings which can be added at a later date.

    Also for the screenshots for players, can they all be from the first season only please guys so that we know what they start the game like first then add some more at a later date.

    Yes mate - is it of any use?

    As for the featured article - yes it is changeable and I only picked the Confed Cup out of the fact that it had an image and could easily be tested. At the moment, the choosing of articles is a manual process

    Like Alan said, that was me. It was worded quite badly, reading it again.

    Confederations Cup is fine, although it may be best to try and keep it to pages that contain some FM information for next times?

    Was just checking for the future though

    That's alright now imo, obviously it will need adding to to make it more in touch with other team guides but yeah, that's fine :-)

    By the way, player pages with accents are screwed up again. Priskin's page is called Tam�s Priskin and has no content - not sure what's happened here.

    Yep, getting the same here. Maybe in future we should leave accents out of page titles?

    I'd assume it's something to do with the site not recognising them.

    I agree with Alan, leave accents out from now. Hopefully we can recover the ones that dont work anymore.

    Hm, when was that page created? It's not one that I've manually had to fix. The accent issue should now be fixed - but what has happened here is that as it has been fixed it doesn't understand the old link

    The only affected articles therefore will be the ones created prior to the fix yesterday

    Jammy made it a day or two ago I think. Have a look at the list of profiles, all of the pages with accents on their title are broken again.

    I've done the ones that names were missed up, I think something else needs doing to the ones with the question mark symbols? As at the moment it says the page is empty.

    I've applied the automatic fix (which will now only cause the profiles we moved manually to be out of sync) to sort out EVERY character problem there was - this has fixed all the profiles with accents. The empty profiles should now be back

    I could have done this yesterday - would have saved the problems today which I didn't forsee!

    I've set up the featured content page here. I just picked a few random pages that were in the top 10 most viewed list.

    Is there any way of getting rid of that ugly contents box at the top of the page?

    Personally I think you should just show the best from each category.

    Clubs -
    Competitions -
    Nations -
    Players -
    Non-Players -
    Gameplay -
    Skinning -
    Technical -
    Stadia -
    Editing -
    Game Releases -
    Miscellaneous -

    I'll leave that one empty in case anyone else want to suggest some.

    Clubs - Arsenal
    Competitions - I like Serie A, but I'm biased
    Nations - Wales
    Players - Maybe one of the ones that were redone? Fabregas, Priskin, I'm not sure what other ones were done
    Non-Players - Not sure if there is one that has FM info?
    Gameplay - So many to choose from, either Tactics, Training or Assembling a good team maybe?
    Skinning - Skins is the obvious choice
    Technical - Tips on making PC faster
    Stadia - All the same layout no? So just pickany team
    Editing - Either EDT, DDT and LNC Files or WeeGiE
    Game Releases - FM09, FMH and FML
    Miscellaneous - Steam maybe? Not too many to choose from.

    Just saw the ones there - all of them seem fine too, but I think we need a couple more.

    Maybe 10 altogether? Not sure which ones are the best from them, I reckon

    1. Regens
    2. Takeovers
    3. Skins
    4. Steam
    5. Tactics
    6. Training
    7. Assembling a good team...
    8. (what people think the best team guide is)
    9. (what people think the best competition guide is)
    10. (what people think the best player guide is)

    As for the contentsbox, I don'tthink you can.

    For the miscellaneous page, I'd go for the page on SI over Steam.
    I think the page on EDT files etc should be included as well.

    Yes, but with two underscores either side.

    __NOTOC__
    rather than
    _NOTOC_

    One underscore either side won't work.

    I *think* the whole of the Arsenal page is original, and think Kevin Doyle, Fabregas and Priskin are the only player ones with completely original work. Then most competition guides that aren't big walls of text are original. So I'm not sure on this one.

    Fabregas is well known so he may be a good one? Or if you think theres a better player that could go on there I'll write up a guideto him.

    Yeah the Arsenal page looks good, I think that should go in. I think we should go with Priskin for the player profile, just to not have too much featured pages related to Arsenal.

    I'll have them up shortly.

    Any chance one of you guys could create a page on player compensation?

    Like where you approach to sign and it says 'Team X must be compensated with Y amount of money possibly rising to Z'

    Not sure if its always the same, but my last one was Y upfront followed by 100k per appearance for the next 40 games, with 15% sell-on clause

    Does the compensation in the game work like that? I always thought you just paid out one big fee and that was it. And I thought it was random. I could be wrong though, anyone feel free to correct me.

    Thanks, it should be fixed now. We've had some trouble with page titles with accents on them lately, for some reason they keep getting screwed up like that.

    The following player images will be missing - if you need them then it would be an idea to upload them (preferably on to imageshack and link or similar to save a bit of space):

    Dean Ashton
    Correa
    Breno
    Juan Forlin
    Papa Gueye
    Vakhit Orazsakhedov
    Giovanni Dos Santos
    Anton Kozlov
    Marquinhos
    Clayton Ince
    Edin Dzeko
    Manuel Pellegrini


    I also note that the following images are missing too

    Steam-editor-done.jpg
    The_FA.jpg
    ChampionshipManager03-04Box.jpg
    Fm2006cover.jpg
    USOpenCupLogo.jpg
    Rummenigge.gif

    That should be them all

    On an unrelated note, maybe we should stick a stub tag on all player profiles that have no FM related content yet?

    Don't think it's been mentioned in this thread yet so I might as well say it now.

    We're petty close to reaching our storage limit, and if we exceed it, JJay's going to have to pay. As far as I know he's restricted uploads to admins only just as a sort-term measure. Linking to imageshack or photobucket is probably the best thing to do for now.

    Could you give me a hand sticking stub tags on all profile pages that have no content if at all possible?


    Also, are we ready to make a decision on the wikipedia situation yet or should that be held up for another while? All up to you guys, I don't do anything on the profles so I'll leave it up to you.

    We can't.

    He means providing a link to Photobucket where they can view the screenshot.

    At least, that is what I think he means.

    Just done that with Xabi Prieto, a player known to me via Crazy's Torquay dominance on FM07. Let me know what you think.

    Maybe, to make it stand out on pages that have text, you could give the screenshot a separate header. Something like this:
    Code:
    ==Screenshot of Profile==
    [link to screenshot]
    We've hit 100% disk usage now. I think the best idea is to upload all player profile screenshots to photobucket from now on. JJay will be taking all the screenies uploaded to the site and they'll be re-uploaded on photobucket. Afterwards we'll have plenty of disk space left so we'll be able to allow uploads again.
