    I got sent one 7 months early. Time zones no excuse - I'm just loved that much.

    Looking back on it, it could've been 5 months late - but hey, I'm a glass half full kind of guy

    Good to hear from you Hamilton

    I've made a new template called {{Player Profile Stubs}}, will anyone putting a stub tag on a player profile please use this template instead from now on. It makes it easier to differentiate between player profile stubs and the other stubs.

    Just another idea regarding the player profiles: How about leaving profiles un-categorised (keeping the stub tag though) until they have some FM-related content? Mightn't be the best of ideas, but I'd like to know what you think anyway.

    I'm making a page on how to use some of the basic wiki commands now (eg how to categorise pages of make headers), for anyone who is unsure of how.

    Nah, it's not that hard, just takes a bit of getting used to. Look at the edit section of pages that use commands you'd like to use and see what the code is. That's probably the easiest way to find out.

    Yes, it is correct. Probably best if you look at this page, it tells you how to handle EDTs. Remember that you have to start a new game for it to take effect. If you've any other questions just ask.

    Think I have most of the links from those sites in, let me know if there are some missing.

    Most of the profile pictures will be taken down tomorrow and I'll re-upload them to me photobucket account. If anyone has the time to help me sort out the pictures please let me know, because it's going to take AGES otherwise.

    You could try linking pages that have similar subjects, info etc in them. Linking to related topics is what I was doing last time I was editing.

    In fairness, we never had that many people working on the wiki at the same time. When a few users take a break it's bound to happen.

    Any ideas on what we should be focussing on now?

    Player profiles imo. Do you think I could try and get permission to ask around in the GPTG to ask people to add a little bit of player info from FM onto pages? I think HoPeY and Purefun would be cool with a post in some club threads if I ask them first.

    I also suggest the player profiles.

    Jammy - That would be a great idea and I think that HoPeY and Purefun would agree to that like we have for our club guides.


    Edit: Is there a system that we can use where only admin can accept new accounts? I, for one, am unhappy with the number of multiple accounts (most probably from the same user) and the names in particular that the accounts are called.

    Yeah it would be nice to get some FM related info into profiles. Go for it.

    Vandalism - What we could do is restrict access to accounts until an admin has approved them. The downside to this is that I've noticed a few guys register to the site and make edits just a few minutes after signing up. Restricting accounts like this would make it even more inconvenient for new users.

    To be honest I don't really give a crap about what this guy/spambot does. I can block him, delete his page and re-name his account in a matter of seconds. I just find it a bit sad that someone would spend their spare time doing this.

    I'll send a PM to one of them and ask about it then

    ALSO: As there is no more room left on the site (I don't think) shall we make a Photobucket account for fmwiki - so we can have everything in one place? Would be a lot easier to control than having lots of pictures everywhere.

    Great stuff, we only have pages on Toulalan and Pjanic atm


    I'll actually be able to do some pages on Wigan players. Don't expect much more from me on player profiles though.

    I'm going to do some for Arsenal players, I've done quite a bit of time on Arsenal saves so should be able to do them quite well.

    And generally some other players when I get bored of Arsenal players.

    I've been talking to the infamous ahmufcwafc (Alan) about the Walsall page. I noticed there are quite a few players on the player list that aren't at the club any more and our new signing's aren't on the list either. Would it be okay for my to edit this so that either the players no longer appear on the list or that there is a (*) next to the player to say they will be at a certain club in FM10. Or should it be left until FM10 is out, so the squads are the same for the start of the game.

    Just a thought.

    I'd be happy to edit the Walsall page for you, if no one else already does

    You could just put brackets next to those that have left the club e.g.

    Peter Pyr (At Charlton in real life)

    Or for those who have just joined put

    Alan Nobby (At Peterborough on FM 9.3.0)

    or similar?

    Well, that's what I was thinking, just with a (*) then at the bottom explain that the player has either left the club or joined. But I would have to say what club they will be at/come from, so maybe the brackets would be a better idea. Shall I do it? Or not.

    Yeah, it's best to have an updated squad list. How you show it is up to you

    What i've been doing is using the squad lists from Wiki for teams then add any players that have moved on since the release of the 9.0.3 patch after looking on the game.

    That's the best idea imo. Not much point in updating all the squad lists until FM10 is released tbf.

    Just updating any players that have been released/sold by clubs from the January transfer window eg. Adding Antonio Valencia to the Wigan page despite his recent transfer to Man Utd as he was a Wigan player during the 08/09 season.

    Sounds like a good idea to me

    I'd like to know what you guys prefer - should we stick to the current disclaimer or use a disclaimer like the one at the bottom of this page? The second one takes up less space, but that isn't necessarily a good thing.

    At footballmanagerwiki.co.uk we pride ourselves on having some of the highest quality articles throughout the world of Football Manager. With guides on teams, graphics, editing and other essential Football Manager information, you can be sure that you will never need to look anywhere else. This site was set up by various members on the SI Forums to give fans of the game a chance to develop their knowledge on the game. For any questions regarding this website, feel free to ask in this thread.

    We welcome all edits providing users are knowledgeable on the topic they are editing and all edits are completed with utmost maturity.

    Signing up
    It is necessary to sign up before making any edits at this time due to anonymous users abusing the system in the early days of this site.

    Starting a new page
    Type whatever you want to name the page in the search bar and hit 'go'. Then click 'create new page'.

    Categorising Pages
    After making your page, it's very important that you put the page in the correct category so that it will show up on the index page of the appropriate category. What you need to do to categorise your page is stick one (or more if necessary!) of these at the end of your page:
    Code:
    [[Category:Club Guides]]
    [[Category:Player Profiles]]
    [[Category:Nation Guides]]
    [[Category:Player Profiles]]
    [[Category:Non-Player Profiles]]
    [[Category:Gameplay]]
    [[Category:Graphics and Skinning]]
    [[Category:Technical]]
    [[Category:Stadia]]
    [[Category:Game Releases]]
    [[Category:Miscellaneous]]
    [[Category:Challenges]]
    [[Category:English Leagues]]
    [[Category:UEFA Competitions]]
    [[Category:Coca-Cola Championship - League 2 Clubs]]
    [[Category:English Lower League Clubs]]
    [[Category:English Premier League Clubs]]
    [[Category:French Clubs]]
    [[Category:Italian Clubs]]
    [[Category:Other European Clubs]]

    Stub Tags

    These are to be used on pages you feel lack content in one way or another. To use them put {{stub}} on the page you feel should be tagged. Stub index.

    Guides on making wiki pages
    Player Profiles
    Club Guides

    Help with wiki commands
    =Main Header=
    This header is the same size as the page title header. I wouldn't use it unless the page requires quite a lot of sub-categories, like this page for example.

    ==Secondary Header==
    Most commonly used header.

    ===Another smaller header===
    Use this when making a point linked to the one made in the secondary header.

    Inserting Tables
    Code:
    {| border="1"
    |'''Team'''
    |'''Date'''
    |-
    |Argentina  
    |1 August
    |-
    |Barbados 
    |19 September
    |-
    |}
    If you were to type this into a wiki page, the result would be like so:


    Embedding Images
    Not possible at this time due to lack of space. We will update this page when the issue has been resolved.


    -----------------------------------------------
    Will ask CP to put this into the OP later. Is there anything I've missed out on? (Pretty sure I've forgotten to mention a thing or two)

    Cheers Tom, still think I left something out though! I'll leave it 'till tomorrow to think about it.

    Anyone think it'd be a good idea to have pages on some more FM fansites as well as just FM WeeGiE? I could go around to the 'FM Scene' section of most fansites and ask if they want a bit of free advertising on the wiki, would do no harm imo. If someone else would like to go around and do it feel free, pretty sure it won't be our representative either way though...

    I guess it doesn't really matter but the first few pages have little relevance to the new OP. Also the original purpose of the thread was to set up a wiki, and now we have that in place the focus of a new thread would feel more relevant to the expansion and growth of an established wiki. And finally it would be more relevant to have the wiki thread started by you alan than CP, no offence to him but you have been pretty much running the show.

    Well anyway it's no big deal, just my opinions for giving the wiki a bit of a fresh start.

    Yeah I suppose that is a fair point, the first lot of responses wouldn't make a whole lot of sense with the new OP in place. It's up to you guys, if the general feeling is that we need to start a new thread then I guess we could ask a mod for his opinion on the situation.

    One thing I fear is that a mod might move the thread to the fansites forum, and that's a graveyard.

    Personally I wouldn't like a new thread - after all if Ross hadn't have made the thread the site may not even exist.

    You could easily make a note at the bottom of your post saying that the first few pages were focused around creating the actual site, and that the proper discussion starts later on.

    Just my opinion though.

    Seems like a good time to start up an FM10 page now after the twittergate fiasco
    I'll get something up later today.

    Just an idea - how about we track all new features given out by SI if they are drip-fed like last year? I think it would be a good idea to have a definitive list instead of details scattered all over the internet.

    Yeah, I reckon that's a good idea.

    Got to have a page on Twittergate too tbh Could ask Miles to write up something about how he made the error

    Maybe we could ask SI if they would be interested in including us in the announcements, saying that a list of all new features will be on fmwiki? Might be pushing it, but we haven't had any prizes as an affiliate so we deserve something

    Pretty sure that we'd have to pay to get the right to reveal some new features instead of, lets say HMV. Also, we have asked for prizes so they should be coming shortly

    How we're going to organise the competition is undecided as of yet.

    I meant when they announce them, we could put them up straight after or something

    Personally I think it would be better to use the featured article section on the right to do a small bit about the competition, then make a competition page on the site. Then do email admins@footballmanagerwiki.co.uk for answers.

    We'd hardly have to ask permission to post up something that's already been made public?

    We could put a competitions thingy in the sidebar instead of having it spam the featured articles page.

    Doesn't show up very much though to be honest - at least for the first one it needs to attract attention.

    Also, how do you make those templates (e.g. this was made by HoPeY etc) EDIT: Never mind, done it

    I don't think the site's in association with SI for releasing new features would be too happy if SI said "Oh and by the way, you can catch the full list of features on footballmanagerwiki.co.uk!". Would probably cause a drop in hits on that particular site. You also have to remember that most of the other fansites will be keeping track of features as well, so I wouldn't expect any special treatment.

    We could always modify the site logo to mention the competition and ask a mod to change the title of this thread. The sidebar is used a lot more than you might expect.

    Interesting fact to back up my point - our current events page has had 7,000 hits while our featured articles page has only had just over 100.

    Oh, and do you think we should keep FM10 on the main page? Was re-organising the front page today and accidentally put FM10 in instead of 09. So what do you think - 09 or 10?

    I've spent the last couple of hours just sorting out the site, removing unused files, categorizing pages that didn't have a category (all that need one have one now), fixing broken redirects, cutting down a couple of long pages (David Beckham in particular) and generally tidying it up a bit. Look in the recent edits, you'll see

    -----------

    But now I think we have to sort out the player profile side of the site.

    Whilst it is fantastic to have so many pages on the site, I feel the fact that roughly 80% of them do not contain our own work dampens the feeling of success we can get from this.

    I feel it would be much more pleasing for us and much more useful to readers if players profiles focus around the Football Manager Information. Of course, having some background information is very nice as it allows the reader to get to know the player.

    However, I feel that as much of this background information as possible should be written by ourselves, or at least reworded from Wikipedia.

    In my opinion it is better to have a short history of the player (much like the introduction on a normal Wikipedia page) and a normal FM info section and to generally have a shorter article that is related to the game than to have longer history with normal FM info.

    Of course, this is not just me who is doing this site. So I'd appriciate as many comments as possible on this issue, especially from Stig who has put in a lot of work to these.

    Cheers (By the way, if this doesnt make sense it's because its 3 in the morning and i'm knackered)

    ---------------------

    It's almost half 3 so I'm off for the night - you lot can talk about the player profile stuff whilst I'm at work tomorrow

    The Feeder Clubs page was similar to the Affiliated Clubs page, so I deleted the Feeder Clubs one and put everything from that onto Affiliated Clubs. Affiliated Clubs. I've left it there for now, if you think it is best to have both.

    Also, what are the categories Italy, Africa, League Guides, North America, Oceana, South America and Spain for? None of them are used for anything, so I assumed these weren't needed. What sort of page would be in the above categories?

    Also, what are the categories Italy, Africa, League Guides, North America, Oceana, South America and Spain for? None of them are used for anything, so I assumed these weren't needed. What sort of page would be in the above categories?
    Ah, fair enough - you can delete them then

    Those categories haven't been sorted yet but they could be used in future. They're invisible atm anyway.

    Ah good. Wasn't myself that pointed it out (jammy) but cheers anyway. Suppose you're all used to my long posts of rubbish here that you just assume it's me whenever there's a big wall of text

    Oh right - I was just looking through the unused categories page and there didn't seem to be a use for them. if they're invisible then no worries. I'll delete the Feeder Clubs page now, and do a redirect so Feeder club > Affiliated clubs.

    Haha no worries mate

    Just wondering if the site goes down all the time for any of you guys? Using firefox and it says "cannot find server" half the time I try to visit the wiki. I just tried it out on opera and I don't seem to be getting these problems anymore.

    Must ask someone to edit the OP later on. Think I'll add a bit more to it before I ask - is there anything at all that you guys have seen my doing that you'd like to know how to do?
