And, so would you have to add me, ssestig, smallmac and the other contributors of this thread as admins so that we could edit?

Hopefully, we don't get to that situation and the spammers get bored with spamming :D

I might make some international tournament articles.

I will do 10 stadium articles tomorrow and maybe a tounament article. Plus, some bits and bobs of articles which I have not finished.

Sorry, maybe I didn't make it clear.

I meant if the spammers kept registering and spamming then, would you have to do the above.

It seems that way, though that would destroy the object of the project.

Just a thought regarding the stadia articles - How about we just leave the stadium profiles in the page of the club/nation that plays there? Let's face it, there's more or less the same information about the stadia in the stadium pages as there in the club pages

Also, regarding player profiles - Is the aim of having a profile for every player realistic? Personally, I feel we should only have a page on players infamous to the FM/CM series, like Tó Madeira. Otherwise it'd esentially just be a waste of time because wikipedia has all that information & more anyway.


I'd like to hear what you all think about it :)

Well, we probably won't have every single player in FMWiki anyways. :p

I'm new to the series (FM08), the only parts I can contribute to the wiki is MLS stuff...

I probably won't have much time to contribute to the wiki anyways...too busy these days.

[/quote]Well, what I saw on the introduction section of the player profiles page was that the aim is to have every single player's profile on the site. Needless to say, I took it out since we only have about 10 at the moment :D

[quote name='ahmufcwafc']Cheers for that Jammy :)

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

tcoleman1 may have been the person who made the page? It was definately BenArsenal who made it, I did a search in the International Management thread and found it.

Fair enough, could've easily just been a typo by Rob.

I'm back working on the wiki now. I've made a few pages & have made a good lot of edits since yesterday.

Bosman Transfers has been made, as a stub

Affiliated Clubs is also made, again as a stub.

And, lastly, WeeGiE has been made as a stub.

These will all need developing at some point, but for now they are a good start imo.

I've added them to all game release articles, as well as a few graphics & editing pages. They're not needed for much else really.

It's like SIASII, but private.

Who changed the 'Stadiums/Stadia category so that it was listed in Alpabetical order?

I think that this is a bad idea.

As, before you could read what leagues and which club it belonged to and was much easier to find a specific club with.

I think that once we get lots of stadium articles it would look bad.

So, my idea is that we have them categorised into League Stadium pages, which have all the clubs in that league's stadiums in.

I might do some more Crewe profiles tonight. To keep the players who have the same name I will enter date of birth eg. Billy Jones 790102 if he was born 2nd Jan 1979. Is that OK?
If it is easier you can call me Stig if you want.

Why not have one list using wiki's function to order by certain columns? surely that would accomodate everyone :P

I don't understand what you mean, Jez.

If we had it in League pages, we could have the 'Stadium' page for links to the league stadiums pages.

Someone made a mistake creating the stadia page, meaning that it isn't actually a category. I'll fix it now.

Seeing that category, shouldn't 'Stadia' be put at the top of the page instead of under S? Should only be stadiums in there imo.

Don't worry, I've sorted it. De-categorized it so it didn't appear on the list and added it to the top of the page. Might want to embed it into some text though.:thup:
