    Just tried to edit the Current Events page, to check if it is locked to admins and it doesn't seem to be. No message appears across the top, like it usually does.

    Anyone can edit it. I'm not a big fan of locking pages for mods only tbh.

    We're going to leave it for now, although I don't think theres really a reason for it to be edited apart from when we are updating it every couple of weeks or so.

    I've also unlocked the Main Page, as we have to confirm all users I don't think theres a risk of it being spammed.

    The only page that is locked is the Rulebook page, for understandable reasons.

    Oh, ok, I was confused as Jammy said it was in the first post on this page.

    I'm not a big fan either only because I'm not a mod and so, wouldn't be able to edit them

    There has only been 6 users who have edited anything on the wiki in the last 7 days. Us 3, sstig, and who else?

    Yes - I thought they were locked but apparently not

    I think Saulty2805 has done a couple of edits, and Hamilton maybe? EDIT: I stand corrected - I can't stop being wrong today

    Just checked on the recent edits, and I think it is Frog125685482, who made a +3, and Saulty1805 who made a few edits on the walsall page.

    EDIT: I don't think add-ons count for the users who have made edits in the last seven days.

    New Idea

    For the Stadia pages, would it be a good idea for me to add how this ground (capacity etc.) is for the league that you are in and for the clubs size and to recommend if they should try and get it expanded and how much would be required in cash to expand it?

    What do you think?

    Yeah, that would be excellent. The part about how good the ground is especially. The Expansion part would be good, but difficult to find out surely?

    Agree with this. Looks much better than having sub-titles the same size as the main titles imo.

    Football Manager 2010
    With the FM10 announcement being made in the next few weeks, I'll be setting aside a few things to get us ready for release hype. I've asked JJay to install a few new features so hopefully we'll have them online in the next few days.

    What we'll be doing is tracking FM10 features as SI feed them to us. Last year they were scattered everywhere so I thought it'd be a nice idea to keep a definitive list on the site.

    Another thing I'll be doing is uploading the FM10 podcasts to the wiki so you can listen to them without the need to download it from iTunes. This is one of the new features we'll hopefully have in the next few days. No download at all is needed. Have to get permission from SI bods first though.

    Video channel that shows vids SI upload to youtube is another thing I might be doing, but not sure if there's much point doing that.

    Let me know what you think and any other ideas because these are only rough ideas atm.


    Also, competitions. As an SI affiliate we have been given some SI merchandise to offer to users. We'll probably have a competitions link added to the sidebar shortly and I'll write something up on the competition then. There's another thing I have to say about the competitions but it'll be another week before I can tell you because I haven't sorted out the deal just yet :\

    People entering more than once might be a problem... but we could always overcome that by only allowing members to enter. Or maybe ask them for their SI username in the email they send?

    We have the competition email set up already as far as I'm aware. Will check later to be sure.

    You could have their SI username in the subject bar Alan.

    eg. mine would be:
    Subject: Competition 1 - ssestig
    Main text box: Answer here


    Edit: I reckon a mixture of the two.

    Yeah, that'd probably be the best way to do it! Wonder what we could do to stop users just giving us any random username from the forums though?

    Oh, and do you think they should have to register on the site to enter or just an SI username? Si username probably best imo.

    Is there any way that you could make the competitons page only viewable to members of the wiki almost encouraging them to sign up or a page only viewable by edits or something like that.

It isn't huge though, couldn't think of a hell of a lot of stuff to write.

    Personally I think it should be something you can find on footballmanagerwiki - try and encourage people to use us as a source of information.

    Obviously it isn't ideal, but it would be so easy to look anything up we may as well do something that benefits the site.

    Yeah, I am. However as far as I know we can't find out passwords.

    EDIT: Don't think we can, unless its in User Credentials. What's your username on the site? It says it isnt Hamilton162?

    I'll check for you now, and I'll make the disclaimer template for you too.

    Varying it would be best.

    For some, make the answer available on the Wiki, but for others, make them have to be common knowledge, but hard common knowledge and something you can't google, as Peter said.

    We have the competition email set up already as far as I'm aware. Will check later to be sure.
    We could just PM the winner on the forums, and make them give details on that which would show if the winner entered or not. You must be a member of the wiki to enter I think would be a good rule and could get some new members.

    Of course, early copies of FM10 might just be a bit too much to ask for ;)

    We will be getting things like Top Trumps (already got some of these), mugs, t-shirts and possibly a couple of copies of FM (although I'm not sure on this).

    Through looking in the Affiliates forum I can see that people have had cans of FM body spray (I seriously dread to think...) and I'm sure there are a couple more things that are avalible.

    Rob - I'm liking the suggestion of PMing them, I think that's probably the best way to do this.

    As the amount of changes being done to the player profiles seems limited now, I think we may as well delete them all. The content on them will need rewriting anyway, deleting them just gives people a wider choice of who they want to write about without feeling pressured to do a page that needs editing already.

    I haven't spoken to Alan about this yet, just my opinion about the situation. If no-one has any objections then I reckon we should start deleting them tomorrow night.

    From what I've heard radestock isn't too keen on having his stuff shown on other sites.

    There's already a config file page on top of of the create a config page, should we leave it as it is for now?

    We need to look carefully through the profiles before deleting them because some guys have added FM info over the last few days and not categorised the pages properly.


    My opinion on the competitions - I think in our first giveaway we should just give a simple question to be answered. Then as we go along we make them slightly harder. Goal of the month sounds good though.

    Just seen the Feyenoord page you did - are Excelsior a feeder to Feyenoord now?

    With the Eredivise page, the majority of that is copied from Wikipedia isn't it? If so, we're trying to cut down onthe amount of Wikipedia content on the site so it would be fantastic if you could reword it a bit to make it original.

    Good to have you on board

    Excelsior is indeed a feeder club.

    Yes its a copy from the Wikipedia. My english isen't that good to write stuff like that on my own to be honest. Well the Team pages doesnt have much info anyways. But i could try.

    We are definitely going to be deleting the player profile pages tomorrow night!

    If there are any pages that people want to keep, I've made a sub category called 'Player Profile Keep'. Just change the category on any pages you want us to keep to [[Category:Player Profile Keep]] and we won't delete them. Feel free to add as many as you'd like in there, although you will be expected to change them after the deletion.

    It's best to do it at this time because if we wait much longer we're going to be busy with FM10 stuff, so won't have much time for the player profile section.

    Cheers

    Yeah I know a new one went up. What I meant to say is that we have two pages: the brief explanation of a confit file and the michael's guide on making them. Should we merge the two pages together? Personally I think we should because they are both very similar

    I've merged the two pages and removed some lines that weren't needed. I've also added some code lines to make the code stand out but for shorter lines of code it looks a bit crap. Might change that a bit.

    Oh, and for you guys who couldn't figure out how to draw out recommended formations without the code messing up, I've figured out how to do it. Just put <code><pre> before the formation and </pre></code> after it.

    I'll try to get a page up soon. I don't have the 9.1 or 9.2 databases on my computer so I won't be able to do those.

    Could anyone with the 9.1 and 9.2 databases installed have a look for me?

    If you tell me what profiles you plan on doing I'll make sure they won't be deleted. I'll restore all the Crewe players' pages shortly.

    I still have the 9.1 database I think.

    I'm guessing I just load all the leagues and type up all the unemployed teams?

    So the only ones you want kept are the Crewe ones? Will that be all of the Crewe player profiles, or just the ones currently playing for Crewe?

    Ok then, cheers for letting me know. I'll categorize the whole of the Crewe players category as Keep, and if there are any others that you want restored after they've been deleted, just say and one of us will restore them for you.
    All of the Crewe players have been Keep tagged

    If there are any that others want kept then I'd be very grateful if you could tag them asap please

    I had thought about it but then wouldn't we just be competing with your wiki? (...or has it collapsed? Can't connect to it atm)

    I'm an ex-FML'er now fwiw but I still know a thing or two about the game.

    Edit: http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=101347

    Judging by the link to FML wiki in that thread I'd guess that the site has indeed gone under, unless you changed domain?

    Peter and Rob play FML as well I think. Would be a good idea expanding it to FML eventually in my opinion.
