Tbh I think 3 is too many, if someone is trying to ruin work made by people trying to help the community they don't deserve rights to edit it even after one warning.

My opinion, of course.

Can I ask again who has 'reserved' doing various country pages?

It is simple to undo the edit once we cop it but maybe you are right. I put in 3 as that is the max I would have. There is 5 on Wikipedia which I think is far too much. Obviously 3 is my opinion as well so if more people want less then that is fine.

Oh yeah, we have lost links to them from the home page now as I changed the home page. I think rancer was written beside Canada but that was all. The rest were red links but without a name beside them.

One warning and then the second time ban them. We can't afford to have idiots deleting all of our hard work.

I'm on jod's side with this one. I think what this guy did wasn't so bad, plus it's easily reversible. One warning & then a ban would be too strict imo.

Also I was just reading on Wikipedia and we should not permanently block an ip address as they can sometimes be dynamic (which means they change) which means anyone (even one of us if we have a dynamic ip) could be blocked if they got assigned that ip address in the future and their ip could change which means they could still access it.

That's true. Also if we banned someone, I bet he/she would be even more driven to spam our pages.

If they are on a mission to abuse it for a night or something though eventually we should block them but then unblock the ip address at a later time.

Fair enough Alan, but for repeated offences and bad first time deletions/useless edits, give them a level 2 warning at least. That way everyone will be happy

Fantastic work lads. I think we should give two warnings and a ban, myself. If they have two warnings it clearly shows that the user is in it for the laughs so we might as well ban his IP, then unban it after 3 days.

K, would it be alright with people if I did England's one? Think it could be quite good.

The old URL is only down temporarily, it should be back once JJay fixes it.

Why is it down?
JJay is doing something or another with it iirc.

Both urls seem fine to me...

I wrote up a bit of the Canadian team (I will write a lot more once later on, when I get bored of coursework :p), and thinking of writing about the USMNT team too, if no one rejects... :D

Not much has happened today. It's been one of the slowest development days since the start, mainly due to the all-guns firing start though.

Can we have a vote on the layout option?

Because I do dislike the new option.

I understand that we don't wan't a major list but at least could we have the links like 'Gameplay' and 'Technical' etc. in a list going down the page.

Go for it, the more we get done the better

Well there's not much to write about now, I can't think of anything.Take it easy, we do have 130 articles since Tuesday ;)

I prefer the new layout. How about we make a seperate page with links to all articles on it?

Yeah, I think that is a good idea.

You want the links from the banner moved out of it to be like a list on the page?

Is that the only change you want?

I prefer them in the banner to be honest but I'll follow the majority. :thup:

There is already a special page called All Pages with them all on it. :thup:

It's very true in a way. I cannot seem to understand how on earth can we lose to Honduras and Jamaica... :(

I didn't mean we could beat up on the States and Mexico. :p

Oh, and our strikers are useless... (well Radzinski was good, but the key word is was...)

EDIT: on the youth team now :cool:

EDIT2: very strong on paper in the CONCACAF region, for more verification lol

I'll go ahead & write the FM06 page now. Who reserved the FM07 page & do they plan on actually doing it? It's been left blank for ages :D

It could have been me who reserved it but if iut was, then it was an accident and feel free to edit it and do it if you want.

Nothing there as that is a template. On short articles you just type {{stub}} to add in that template which adds in the text in the template.

It is like the unconstructive edits warning templates earlier for warning people after abusive/unconstructive edits like someone did earlier.

Oh, I see.

Then, why does it redirect from Dynamo Kyiv and not Dinamo Kiev.

It hardly makes any difference, does it? Dynamo Kyiv is the correct name for them fwiw.

Can we do individual player profiles?
Go ahead :thup:

Can someone make a redirect to the Major League Soccer page when you type in "MLS"? (if possible, I'm too lazy to type the whole name every time. On wiki, i just type "mls")

Oh, and rob, I'm already starting to think about making some individual wiki player pages, from the uncreated red link pages of de Guzman and DeRosario on the Canadian page. :)
