'Die-Hard' :D

I am having problems linking pages to the category stadiums.

I think it may be due to a redirect page we have from 'stadiums' to 'Stadia'.

I have deleted the re-direct information but I can't delete the article, because I am not a mod.

Also, any news on the SI affiliation?

Not sure.

Has anyone actually tried to contact them?

They contacted me, Alan and JJay but I have heard no further updates. He basically told us what it involves and told us our project was unique.

Okay, I haven't said anything about this here yet, so I might as well mention it now.

A few days ago, CaptainHaddock sent me a PM saying that he'd be interested in making us an official offiliate of SI. We'll be mentioned in the affiliates section on the FM website, & we'll also be on the official facebook page. I think this is great & just the type of advertising we've needed. We should be made an affiliate soon enough.

What stadium is it for? I'll try and get it sorted.

We have been spammed again!

This is getting very annoying!

It is the same message on three of the pages but I cannot post it on here.

The pages are the United States, Hoffenhiem and Russia pages.

I am not a mod(It would help if I was ;):D) So, I cannot change it back.

Preston

QPR

Liverpool

Ipswich

Norwich

Arsenal

And, another team which I can't remember.

It seems to be exactly the same messages from the last banned spammer. Got to be changed to only registered users can edit pages.

If you could delete the empty Stadiums page, as this is what is stopping me doing it I think.

It is causing problems whenever, I try and categorize to the stadiums section.

Great news on the affiliation BTW.

Totally agree.

Every page has to be locked so that only registered users can edit pages and not just the talk page.

Not only has he/she spammed the page, they've deleted all of the information that was on the page.

Turns out that there are more pages that were spammed by the same person.

The other pages were:

Spain - La Liga Clubs

France - Ligue 1 Clubs

Germany - Bundesliga Clubs

Championship Manager

I think that the mods may be able to get that back but if not, this is very bad.

As that is 7 pages of work, that have gone.

And who called Landon Donovan Landy Cakes. C'mon, let's be serious, I call him Landy Cakes too, but I don't put that in Wiki. :p

How do you re-direct a page to another eg. Spurs to Tottenham Hotspur?

#REDIRECT [[Page Name]]

So you would search for a page called Spurs, when it says that isnt a page called that make it and put the above in, replacing Page Name with the name of the page you want to link to.

Almost fixed it myself, but i didnt know wether it was official or not.

Cheers mate. I've asked in the GPTG forum thread if the author of each club guide could do a stadium page or to send the info to my email address.

There is no need for anyone to do any stadium guides.

I will do them all.

I will do about 10 a night and will have them all done soon.

If people do some then, that is great but if they don't, I don't mind because they only take a few minutes each.

Right, he's been banned (again).

I guess our only choice is to block all pages for non-registered users.

When we get to do this, how will we differensiate (sp) between two or more players with the same name? eg. Billy Jones (Crewe) and Billy Jones (Preston)

Block them, as it is getting ridiculous.

This is about the 20th time I've banned him :rolleyes:

Just change the page name I'd imagine.

I was just about to ask the exact same question about Billy Jones after looking at your Crewe article.

Billy Jones at Preston is better.

They were both at Crewe at the same time so they will have had the same problem.

Could we include the place of birth to separate them? Thankfully you took the better one of the books so it wasn't too bad though last season we had Gary Roberts (now Yeovil) and Gary Roberts (now Huddlesfield) in the same midfield.

From the Singapore thread:

The above was all written by [insert name here] in the Sports Interactive Community Forums. It was originally posted in the Football Manager 2009 International Management Thread. All credit for the above goes to him. As footballmanagerwiki is avalible to anyone to edit as they like, I can not guarantee that the below is the exact work of the original writer. To see the original thread and to discuss this team, please visit the Good Player and Team Guide.
Could the person that made this thread sort it out? Thanks :)

Right, unregistered users aren't allowed to edit any page any more. It's not ideal, but I felt as if we had no other choice. That's 30 minutes of my life I'll never get back... :rolleyes:

Good point. I've a funny feeling this won't be the end of the spamming though.

Oh yeah, whenever someone makes a new page, could they please just mention it in this thread so I can lock it asap.

I didn't say it would be the end of the spamming. No problem, i'll probably do some more of the Crewe players tonight. Who else are the mods just in case you're not around?

One question though, are you sure it was BenArsenal that made it. Looking back on the history, it initially said that tcoleman1 made it.

It was BenArsenal, I think because it was me that got permission to use that.

I can't remember though.

Sorry about the disclaimer, I must have forgotten his name and then, not had the time to find it and then, forgotten about it afterwards.

What is the next option after only allowing registered users to edit?

Only allow mods to edit?

I'm quite suprised no one has done them yet. I was looking to link them into my article but couldn't find anything :D

For anyone looking to do articles there is a whole host of international tournaments that could be included. I'll consider doing some myself soon, but not tonight.

Whoops, completely misread that earlier :D

It's to make admins only able to edit.
