    What do we need templates for though? Can't really think of any time we would need a template tbh

    For information at a glance

    Look at this: http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk...Premier_League (I did that before I was banned not knowing the extension was not installed)

    with the extension installed it would look like the box on the right hand side of this (minus graphics until they are uploaded):

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premier_League

    Also, please could you unban my ip address ?

    I'm not an admin so I can't do it, but I think that would be quite good. Mainly for player profiles, team pages and random ones like SI's.

    Maybe we should change the 'League Guides' category to 'Competition Guides'. It'd make more sense to have it that way imo so we can put the UEFA competitions in there as well.

    I've added a few pages:

    nleague.lnc
    fake.lnc
    Japan - J-League
    South Africa - PSL

    and a few others.

    Hopefully, the admin will install the extensions requested here:

    No worries.. I've had a fiddle about..

    http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk...etition_Guides

    Although having said that, shouldn't the UEFA pages be under their FM names? i.e. UEFA Champions League is the European Cup?

    Sub-categories are looking good

    I think the competition names are fine as they are. Just put in a reference as to what they're called in FM somewhere in the article, should do fine.

    I think they are fine too, but maybe do redirections for (eg) European Cup > UEFA Champions League ?

    I made a page last night called 'Real Competition Names'. No way am I doing all that on my own, there's hundreds of competitions. ;)

    Just have a look at our current stadium pages, see if there's any missing, and add pages on the one's that aren't there if you like

    Search for the page you want to do (e.g. New Den) then, when nothing returns, click 'create this page'

    It is quite good actually, I think it's good to have extended text as well as a factfile

    Glad you're enjoying it, hope you keep it up.

    Rob - Just for future reference - it's spelt "corporate", not "coporate". I have to run the spell-checker through every stadium page now

    If you're watching the game and don't want to be disturbed, then why are you posting here?

    Has anyone else here downloaded the Fansites pack? It's got some quite good stuff in it, might be worth a look. It's on the FM site.

    Out of interest, do any of you wiki editors using a Mac? Just need a little help writing up a page. If anyone who doesn't work on the wiki is reading this (which I doubt), I'd still really appreciate it if you gave me a hand here

    And someone who uses Steam too please.

    Great stuff. Here's the Affiliate Clubs page. As for the tips on finances, you can either stick to the page that arsenal_2111 posted up earlier or start a new page for different subjects. Either way, I don't really mind.

    Right, my monthly(ish) check on things has revealed a lot less issues than last time, well done lads

    I have one suggestion. Player profiles are currently documentation of a player's career IRL. Don't you think we'd be better off writing about them in FM, as suggested Here?

    Yeah, I'd prefer it that way. Having said that, I'm not one to be giving advice on players so I'm useless here.

    Also, what areas do you feel we should expand on in the wiki? Anything you'd like us to expand on. I'd like to have an impartial view on what needs to be looked at.


    Edit again: I'm doing a massive overhaul of the Useful Links page today. Basically what I'm going to do is have a look around the majority of FM sites and post links to any page I find that might be of use.

    Great, cheers Hamilton

    I've done a good bit of work on the wiki today. Made a few sub-categories for club guides, might do the same with player profiles but I'll wait for stig's opinion on it before I do anything. A few miscellaneous articles were added. Haven't done that "massive overhaul" of the links page, but I did add a few more links.

    I'd suggest removing a lot of the player profiles too. No offence to whoever put them up (presumably ssestig), but unless a player release by Crewe is outstanding in a certain version of FM, there shouldn't be a page on him. Gylfi Sigurdsson has a high PA, but does he really warrent a page? I'm tempted to say so. We'll need to draw up guidelines on whether players are allowed or not (much like they have in Wikipedia). I'd say those should be based on PA. If a player has ever had a PA of -8 or 150+, then he is allowed a page. If he is an outstanding lower league player (like Super Kyle) then likewise. The same should go for staff. Mark Vivean-Foe should be moved to the players section assuming he meets criteria. He isn't in the game as a non-player.

    I think the page for the dafuge challenge should possibly be re-named "small club challenges", and incorportate dafuge's challenge, Gundo's challenge, JoseRR's challenge, rancer890's challenge, and the other one. Is that practical?

    Club profiles- I like the PSG one, and maybe they should be edited to go down that route? However, ideally there'd be more expansion on players in the squad.

    Europa League page could use a clean up.

    I'll try to help when I can, particuarly with the player profiles.

    What is wrong with players having a page each? It is not exclusive to teams that are top-flight or potentially top flight. Marc-Vivien Foé is in the non-player section as he is favoured personnel (iirc) for Man City but isn't a player as he has been dead a few years now.

    I don't think he particularly means that we should not have pages for special players only, but pages shouldn't be created just for the point of it.

    I agree with SCIAG on this, if a page is going to be written it should mainly focus around the player in FM and shouldn't be created just so the whole squad is full. Just my opinion.

    Maybe a poll in the other forum for this?

    If someone has the time or wants to add pages for specific players; then why not? Restricting anything like this defeats the objective of a wiki imo.

    This is what I meant. I would add some FM info into the pages except my laptop with my FM09 is broke atm and this PC won't work 09 not unless you want screenies from older versions.

    I was thinking that you hadn't been around in a while. Glad to have you back

    Are there no Old Firm club guides in GPTG. The only Scottish club we have a profile on is Aberdeen.

    No, there aren't. There are club threads for

    Aberdeen
    Celtic
    Dundee United
    Hearts
    Hibernian
    Rangers

    But permission has only been gained from Aberdeen's writer.
