hope this is correctEdit

Not sure if this is the correct place to get in touch with you. Thanks for adding the cricket scorecard template for IRL vs SRI. I created the blank page but did not know how to add the tables. I could have copied another finished table and blanked out all the text, but I guessed there is an empty template somewhere. Is that how you did it? Mr Splosh 15:03, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Cricket portalEdit

One problem with the changes you've made is that any match between countries not listed will no longer appear on the portal. I note in the table matches involving Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:39, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

If you have category= on three or four separate lines it will do an AND between all. Look at Portal:Africa, you have cat published, cat Africa, and cat Politics and conflicts. You could create a DPL for Africa-Europe political interactions just by adding category Europe. Sorry, I can never remember where the DPL documentation is. --Brian McNeil / talk 19:42, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
Oh, and if I remember correctly you can do notcatgory=, so you could build a DPL for Rest of the World that used category published, category Cricket, and notcategory= for each of the other countries. --Brian McNeil / talk 19:44, 22 July 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for correcting my spelling and moving the page. If you like football it'd be nice to get some help revamping the Portal. Check my page for the replies, etc. Celticfan383 23:39, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the tables! There's just a few contributors currently but I hope to get that number up. Celticfan383 16:19, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Football Result TemplateEdit

Can you use Template:Footballbox when you add results to pages please. Celticfan383 16:49, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

West Indies vs BangladeshEdit

Oops. Anyway do whatever you like to do. Thanks for welcoming me. Bye. --Tarif Ezaz 14:26, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

United vs. RomaEdit

The starting lineup and subs bench for AS Roma is not correct. It's still a merely a copy and paste of Barcelona's starting lineup. Kingjeff 00:26, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

2007/08 European football season: Spots finalized for European stageEdit

Can you help on working on the table? This is a massive table and a lot of people need to work on it. Kingjeff (talk) 01:28, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Your account will be renamedEdit
