SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from ForteTuba, SuggestBot's caretaker.

P.S. You received these suggestions because your name was listed on the SuggestBot request page. If this was in error, sorry about the confusion. -- SuggestBot 11:35, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Basketball[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Basketball: Hello M.C., you may not be aware but activity and discussion are down at our WikiProject. While a to do list, and a few neat tables have been created, more discussion and action needs to take place. Please stop by the WikiProject Basketball talk page and leave your input, and ideas. Thanks KOS | talk 20:12, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

2006 US Open[edit]

Hey, I currently don't have an internet connection at home, so it's going to be a little tough for me to do this. Do you know any scripting languages? If so, I'd scrape tenniscorner.net. If you don't, I can try to whip something up this afternoon. --Dantheox 17:29, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

OK, I'm on it. --Dantheox 18:02, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
Check out 2006 US Open - Men's Singles. It's not totally fleshed out, but there's enough there that people should just have to fill in the blanks once results start coming in tomorrow. --Dantheox 18:39, 27 August 2006 (UTC) Also, 2006 US Open - Women's Singles. --Dantheox 19:27, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Template previews[edit]

If you want to play around with templates, it's probably best to do that in your user space. If you make a User:MC Snowy/Bracket page, then you can include it in any other page with {{User:MC Snowy/Bracket | ... }}. Sorry if you knew this already, but I didn't until someone told me! --Dantheox 05:19, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikiproject Album spectrum vote update.[edit]

Hello,

This is to inform you that the recent vote to update the spectrum used for album infoboxes passed. However, there are some follow-on discussions to fine tune one or two of the categories. Any constructive feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated. --Cheers, Folajimi (leave a note) 13:35, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Need help with keeping the Wikipedia article that compiles all the Grand Slam performance timelines[edit]

Hello MC Snowy: If you're interested in keeping the performance timeline comparison tables as a Wikipedia article, then please make your opinion known at the articles for deletion discussion here. Thanks! Tennis expert 22:48, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Toronto Raptors[edit]

Hi there, the Toronto Raptors article is undergoing a FA nomination here, so all comments and feedback are welcome. I dropped this message because you indicate that you're a Raps fan! Thanks, Chensiyuan 15:30, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Please explain your changes[edit]

Hello, you have been making some changes to high-use templates, but have provided no explanation for your changes. At a minimum, please provide an edit summary so that other editors can understand why you made your changes. Thanks, Andrwsc 16:17, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

On a similar note, can you please use a sandbox or ask someone to help when you experiment directly in the main template space? Your changes are frequently quite disruptive! If you don't know what the effects of your changes will be, please don't modify templates just to see what happens. Thanks, Andrwsc 03:55, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Sorry about that! —MC 14:50, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for the barnstar for my template work! I guess the ex-software engineer in me just had to do something about thousands of redundant flag templates on Wikipedia... ;) I'm almost finished with football, and as you've probably noticed, I've got a few other sports lined up next. Andrwsc 19:41, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

No problem! :-) —MC 23:43, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

French Championships, pre-1925[edit]

A search of the historical record finds that Fyunclick is wrong. In fact, the first winner of the French championships in 1891 was...an Englishman! And Englishmen also made the final in 1892 and 1897. Clearly, the idea that foreigners were 'excluded' from pre-1925 tournaments is fallacious:

http://www.answers.com/topic/list-of-french-men-s-singles-champions-and-finalists

Repeating false 'history' doesn't make it true. Since the premise of Fyunclick's argument is lost, he should give up trying to 'exclude' others and end his discriminatory campaign.

After all, do we really believe that Wimbledon in 1877 (13 players entered) is in any way comparable to today's tournaments, where there are 128 male and 128 female singles players, not to mention doubles? These lists are more for historical purposes than for 'slam-counting' purposes. Let's not forget that the early players were at a decided disadvantage...after all, how can you play in the Australian Open in 1903 when it doesn't exist yet?Ryoung122 08:50, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

If you have much more than 500+ please don't be offended; I am thinking about

  • The Chain Barnstar of Merit: 1500+
  • The Chain Barnstar of Diligence: 2500+
  • The Wikipedian's Chain Barnstar of Honour: 5000+

But I have to make them first Pseudoanonymous 19:26, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Michał Przysiężny[edit]

A tag has been placed on Michał Przysiężny, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the article and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. --דניאל - Danielrocks123 19:00, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

AWB[edit]

Hi, [1]

You are now renamed! Reedy Boy 18:50, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! —MC 22:04, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Your Rename[edit]

I noticed here that you changed your signature to match your new name. I urge you to exercise extreme caution with this. Going back and changing links because of a rename has been very controversial. The old link should just redirect to your new page anyway. i said 01:04, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

I dont recall it being controversial changing your signature neccesarily, but I can recall one time recently where users edit warred over a users changing of links. It ended up at AN/I several times, and an RfC. I'll try to find links for you. But again, there is no need to do this, and it is just a waste of time. This probably wont be a problem, but I still urge you to think about the need for this. i said 01:13, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
You're welcome. It was just a huge, sticky mess and I wouldn't like to see it happen again. i said 01:19, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

MC, please stop changing your old signature links (example), this is totally unnecessary, it's a waste of server resources and it disturbs thousands of user through their watchlists ∴ Alex Smotrov 18:42, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

But I don't want people to link me to that name for privacy reasons... What do I do, then? I only have ~20 pages left, anyway. —MC 18:47, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
If you wanted nobody to know "your old account name", you should have created a new account. Not only the rename can be easily found in logs, with mass links renaming you are also attracting a lot of attention to yourself. Since you're almost done — fine, just do it your way ∴ Alex Smotrov 18:58, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
I guess I should have used a new name... Thanks. —MC 18:59, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Canadian QF[edit]

Sorry about not replying sooner. Took me forever to figure out how to send messages. In reply to your question of who the last Canadian to be in the quarterfinals of an ATP event was before Frank Dancevic, I believe the person was Greg Rusedski. Not many people may know this, but Rusedski originally played for Canada before changing his citizenship to that of Great Britain in 1995.
