I was thinking that logo looked a bit "out-dated".

Yeah, the one you had before is the proper one but I didn't like it so I made a new one :D

The old one looked like it was taken from a disposable camera. :D

To be fair the new one is shabby, I did it on Paint :D

Sorry for the lack of progress (or no progress at all :p), but I've just noticed the United States article looks a clone of my MLS article...thought it would be about the US National Team article...

I probably won't do anything to it though. I'm busy till June with coursework and don't have a lot of time on my hands. :)

What's that meant to do? Is it needed?

It will allow the use of IF statements in templates allowing pages to be up to date. In my opinion it is needed so that templates can be improved. Without it the ability to create templates (such as infoboxes) is impaired.

What do we need templates for though? Can't really think of any time we would need a template tbh:confused:

For information at a glance :)

Look at this: http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=England_-_Premier_League (I did that before I was banned not knowing the extension was not installed)

with the extension installed it would look like the box on the right hand side of this (minus graphics until they are uploaded):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premier_League

Also, please could you unban my ip address ?

I'm not an admin so I can't do it, but I think that would be quite good. Mainly for player profiles, team pages and random ones like SI's.

I was creating templates and one of the admin thought I was a bot spamming the board :)

The IP has been unblocked :thup:

I'll ask JJay to install the template. Don't thin I have the privileges to do so.

FM Wiki rules!

Have to agree. With the exception of their thick admin that goes around banning people for improving the layout of the wiki... :rolleyes:

I think he was being sarcastic :p

I know, I just thought I'd remind everyone that it was him.

Added the UEFA Club competitions to the Miscellaneous section atm.

Maybe we should change the 'League Guides' category to 'Competition Guides'. It'd make more sense to have it that way imo so we can put the UEFA competitions in there as well.

Lou, I don't think I have permissions to install those extensions. I have PM'ed our webmaster JJay, but he hasn't got back to us yet.

Sub-categories are looking good :thup:

I think the competition names are fine as they are. Just put in a reference as to what they're called in FM somewhere in the article, should do fine.

I think they are fine too, but maybe do redirections for (eg) European Cup > UEFA Champions League ?

I made a page last night called 'Real Competition Names'. No way am I doing all that on my own, there's hundreds of competitions. ;)

What do real competition names have to do with editing? ;)

I love talking about stadiums, and have a pretty good knowledge on English stadiums, if you need me :thup:

Just have a look at our current stadium pages, see if there's any missing, and add pages on the one's that aren't there if you like :thup:

Search for the page you want to do (e.g. New Den) then, when nothing returns, click 'create this page' :)

Glad you're enjoying it, hope you keep it up.

Rob - Just for future reference - it's spelt "corporate", not "coporate". I have to run the spell-checker through every stadium page now :p
