Good work!Edit

There isn't any hockey barnstar that I know of so I'll just say that I think you have done a great job with the Timrå article. Keep it up! --Krm500 21:09, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Ice Hockey August 2007 NewsletterEdit

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter

Dear Bamsefar75! You are receiving this newsletter because you have signed up as a member of WikiProject Ice Hockey. The purpose of this newsletter is to update on the goings on of the project, as there have been major changes, and a lot of new recognized content in the past few weeks. If you are an inactive user, you probably won't recognize the new and improved state of the WikiProject!

From the project, Maxim.

New recognized content

By Maxim
There have been a lot more Good and Featured articles written in the past few weeks. Here is a list:[1][2][3][4]

Featured articles
Good articles
Featured lists[5]
Notes
  1. ^ All articles are in order of promotion, as written on the main WikiProject page; FA's have official dates of promotions.
  2. ^ A star represents a featured article or list
  3. ^ A green circle represents a good article
  4. ^ Stanley Cup is an A-Class article
  5. ^ The lists system differs from articles, and doesn't give an official date of promotion
Article Improvement

By Maxim

Upon some discussion on the WikiProject talk page, the Article Improvement Drive page was revamped by Krm500 and Maxim. It was renamed Wikipedia:WikiProject Ice Hockey/Article Improvement, and it includes two section. The first section is called articles in dire need of improvement. It list articles, usually important, that are in very poor shape. The second section is called requested help. Users list an article they request help improving a certain article, which will facilitate collaboration, which is the aim of any WikiProject. There is one article currently listed there, Henrik Lundqvist, here. The goal is to at least get it to Good article status.

Diacritics

By Maxim

In the past few weeks, there has been quite heated discussion about the use of diacritics in article name. The current guideline is using diacritics in the pages of articles of all player names which require them, but redirects are exempt.

Task forces

By Maxim
There have been two new task forces started within the WikiProject to coordinate major topics.

Sweden Ice Hockey task force

This task force was initiated by Krm500. Its current goal is to improve Henrik Lundqvist to Good or Featured article status. It covers all Swedish clubs, leagues and competitions and associated articles, players and coaches that are Swedish, or have played/coached for a Swedish club, and arenas in Sweden. They plan to eventually operate as a sort of a sub-project, which will have its own articles for creation, ranking importance and quality of articles, and co-ordinate article improvement. Its current members are Krm500, Bamsefar75, and CLAES.

New Jersey Devils task force

This task force was initiated by Bsroiaadn. Its goal is to improve New Jersey Devils to Featured Topic status. Although it currently meets the required article count, the task force wishes to improve it further. Its area of coverage is very similar to the Sweden Ice Hockey task force. Its members are Bsroiaadn, JHMM13, FutureNJGov, Sportskido8, Michael Greiner, JRWalko, and Soxrock.

Requested Images

By Maxim
After discussion on the WikiProject talk page, Serte created a page for Requested Images. The page encourages users to license images for use on articles. The page also has section to request images for players, arenas, game situations, miscellaneous, and team and league logos. The page has been quite popular; since it was created on July 21, there have been six completed requests. There are four currently outstanding requests:

Article assessement completed

By Maxim
On July 12, Kaiser matias announced that he had completed assessing all the articles with a {{ice hockey}} tag, sorting them into Category:Unassessed Ice Hockey articles. Kaiser matias has ranked about 9000 articles in that category, and most were stubs, and "have no information at all", according to him. Everybody is encouraged to expand the stubs into real articles. This effort took around 5 months. A big thanks goes to Kaiser matias from me and all the project.

Re:Archiving requestEdit

Done! I hadn't realized how big that talk page got. I ended up creating two archives, and dropping the main talk page to about 74kb. Regards, Resolute 01:24, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

No, the mistake was mine. I copy/pasted the the archive12 link on the main talk page, but forgot to change the titles to archive13 and archive 14, I only changed the visual links. I noticed that mistake this morning when I simplified the archive box. Resolute 16:41, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Ice Hockey newsletterEdit

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter

Dear Bamsefar75! You are receiving as you are a member of WikiProject Ice Hockey There's been more new thing going on at WP:HOCKEY, and I think this will help you to stay informed. Since the last newsletter sent out in August, there's been great changes. Read on to find out! Maxim(talk)

This just in:
Maurice 'Rocket' Richard Trophy has just been promoted to featured list status, while the bot was delivering the newsletter. Maxim(talk) 02:02, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

And I've just promoted Art Ross Trophy. And Clarence S. Campbell Bowl is at FLC. This should be the last update. Maxim(talk) 00:40, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
New recognized content

By Maxim

Especially due to the featured topic drive, there have been many new featured lists promoted concerning NHL awards. Here's the full list of all the 13 FL's promoted since the last newsletter.[1][2]

  1.   Hart Memorial Trophy
  2.   James Norris Memorial Trophy
  3.   Vezina Trophy
  4.   Conn Smythe Trophy
  5.   Frank J. Selke Trophy
  6.   Lady Byng Memorial Trophy
  7.   Lester B. Pearson Award
  8.   Calder Memorial Trophy
  9.   Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy
  10.   King Clancy Memorial Trophy
  11.   Jack Adams Award
  12.   Presidents' Trophy
  13.   List of Calgary Flames players

There have been no new good articles or featured articles. Maurice 'Rocket' Richard Trophy has been given A-Class status due to multiple issues raised at FLC.

  1. ^ The last one, List of Calgary Flames players, is the only one not associated with the featured topic drive.
  2. ^ At the time of publishing, there were 5 lists at WP:FLC and 2 lists in the "Holding cell", as there's been an accepted guideline to not put more that 5 trophy lists at the same time to, "compensate for the sanity of the reviewers".
Did You Know?

By Maxim
There have been 4 new articles featured in the Did You Know section? on the Main Page since August.

Featured Topic Drive

By Maxim

Started by User:Scorpion0422, the aim of this drive is to make NHL awards a featured topic. A featured topic is basically a set of very high quality articles (good articles and featured articles/lists). In this case, the topic is NHL awards. Many users have helped, including Scorpion0422, Resolute, Serte, Hasek is the best, Maxim, Croat Canuck, Spike Wilbury, FutureNJGov, and T Rex/Dinosaur puppy. The progress has been very good; there are 12 featured lists promoted, and 2 good articles:

  1.   Hart Memorial Trophy (Scorpion)
  2.   James Norris Memorial Trophy (Scorpion)
  3.   Vezina Trophy (Scorpion)
  4.   Conn Smythe Trophy (Serte)
  5.   Frank J. Selke Trophy (FutureNJGov)
  6.   Lady Byng Memorial Trophy (Scorpion)
  7.   Lester B. Pearson Award (Scorpion)
  8.   Calder Memorial Trophy (Croat Canuck)
  9.   Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy (Maxim)
  10.   King Clancy Memorial Trophy (Maxim)
  11.   Jack Adams Award (Maxim)
  12.   Presidents' Trophy (Scorpion)
  13.   Stanley Cup (Earlier collaboration, very many involved)
  14.   Traditions and anecdotes associated with the Stanley Cup (Maxim)

Check the project page if you are interested in helping out. Although it's closer to being done than not, there's still work to be done. The next topic that might be tackled is Stanley Cup, but this remains purely speculative and in discussion.

Los Angeles, USAEdit

You cite WP:HOCKEY/TPF but judging by the discussions there with comments like

  • articles that are obviously North America-centric
  • It's also the most common format used by NHL teams on their official websites
  • The National Hockey League is a North American hockey league and conducts it's business in North America (Canada, United States). The vast majority of players in the league are Canadian and American, and the teams themselves follow the current format, as do the majority of networks that cover the league - not to mention the NHL media guide.

it's obvious most had North American teams in mind, which means there's no evidence on any consensus on Swedish teams. And indeed the standard in the Swedish and Finnish team pages seems to be [City, Country] for NA players, or at the very least [City, Province, Country].

But whatever, if you want your Swedish pages to be North America-centric then fine. I wonder why so many pages use another format though... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.196.58.78 (talk) 20:01, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi. I guess we are talking about Frölunda HC‎ and not Los Angeles, USA. Yes, I undestand your point, but you should bring this up on the TPF talk page instead. I was just trying to make the Frölunda article consistent, since Krm500 chose to follow the TPF but overlooked one player. I am just the messenger. --Bamsefar75 (talk) 20:27, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

VEU FeldkirchEdit

Do you know what happened to VEU Feldkirch? I looked at their website in German, it appears the team is active, but they are not a member of the Austrian Hockey League. Perhaps they were relegated to a lower level? I don't think the current wording (my fault) is correct. What do you know? Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 22:30, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Swedish Rookie of the YearEdit

I am hoping you would be able to write a stub for Årets Rookie. It is the only red link on Template:Elitserien. I don't have any sources for it. Let me know if you can find any. Flibirigit (talk) 17:42, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

  Done in 2009‎ by Krm500 at Swedish Rookie of the Year, it seems. - Bamsefar75 (talk) 16:23, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

New recognized content

By The Pancake of Heaven!
There has been numerous new recognized content, so much that it's too time-consuming to sift through the "trophy cases" on WP:HOCKEY. Some interesting achievements:

Task forces

By The Pancake of Heaven!

We are working to create a new task force within the WikiProject to deal with topics related to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It hasn't been created yet; but it aims to expand articles based on former and current Pittsburgh Penguins players and articles. Good luck!

Featured Topic Drive

By Maxim

The original featured topic drive, initiated by Scorpion0422, has concluded succesfully. National Hockey League awards is now a featured topic, with 24 articles in total. Of them, 20 are featured lists, one is a featured article, and the other three are trophy articles that were too short to become featured lists. Eight users signed up to help out, shown here. The next Featured Topic hasn't been decided upon, and the ideas and organization for it fell apart. If you have any ideas, don't hesitate to share them at WT:HOCKEY.

Notes
  • More editors are needed to help out with the newsletter. The newsletter creator doesn't have an infinite nor perfect supply of ideas, and thus he might omit some interesting news.
  • Portal:Ice hockey is being considered for featured status.
  • Should Chris Pronger have been suspended for more than eight games for stomping on Ryan Kesler? Vote here!
  • Help Patrik Stefan -- one of the greatest NHL draft busts -- become a GA status article.

Rash of new task forcesEdit

Seems to be a trend to create a task force right now. Since you did so amazing on the other teams. Would you mind making a SJS logo for the sharks? -Djsasso (talk) 16:19, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

The rash continues...any chance you'd be willing to create a VAN logo for the future Vancouver Canucks task force? Thanks. – Nurmsook! (talk) 02:21, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Excellent...thanks a lot! – Nurmsook! (talk) 18:24, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikimania 2010 could be coming to Stockholm!Edit

I'm leaving you a note as you may be interested in this opportunity.

People from all six Nordic Wiki-communities (sv, no, nn, fi, da and is) are coordinating a bid for Wikimania 2010 in Stockholm. I'm sending you a message to let you know that this is occurring, and over the next few months we're looking for community support to make sure this happens! See the bid page on meta and if you like such an idea, please sign the "supporters" list at the bottom. Tack (or takk), and have a wonderful day! Mike H. Fierce! 08:42, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

As punishment...Edit

For pointing out my slip up. Now I am going to bug you if you have the time at some point to make a PHI graphic like you did for the other teams. Realized I never got an image put on the template for the new Philly task force. -Djsasso (talk) 14:32, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

PääjärviEdit

Hope you don't mind if I change your infobox image, I have a couple of old images of MSP when he played for Malmö, which are higher resolution and a little sharper. —Krm500 (Communicate!) 04:36, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Thats good. Go ahead, by all means. My player pics are all low-quality and serve as better-than-nothing images until someone with a better camera (wider lens) has captured something. If your picture is outdated (if player looks very young) you can always use image_caption in the infobox. I have a newer pic of him too, but its from the same camera (and quality) as the old one. And of course there will probably be more room for my old picture in the future as his article grows (could be used to represent his Timrå career, etc). --Bamsefar75 (talk) 04:52, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm planning to get a picture of him during this season, I will occasionally be photographing for Hockeyligan.se this season so I hope I'll work on one of the two Timrå games in Scandinavium. —Krm500 (Communicate!) 05:02, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Of course it was, my mistake. You wouldn't happen to have any good sources about his early life? I got what I need on his playing career, I'll try to expand it as much as possible before the draft, will try to do it with all Swedish potential first rounders (ie Hedman, MSP, Josefsson, Rundblad, Erixon, Lander, Klingberg). —Krm500 (Communicate!) 15:18, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

I'd guess in 1995. :) Huge game by MSP today, wow is he going to be a great NHLer. —Krm500 (Communicate!) 23:56, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Wider inputEdit

Hi, as someone who participated in this, you may be interested in giving your opinion at this featured topic candidacy, which is currently seeking wider input before a decision can be made as to whether to promote the nomination. Thanks, rst20xx (talk) 01:18, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Discussion on diacriticsEdit

You are welcome to join the discussion on diacritics here.

Duplicate Team CategoriesEdit

Thanks for your help regarding the duplicated team categories yesterday, I'm sure there was something I could've done but I didn't want to take the risk and do something disasterous so I'm grateful you took the time to help out. Many thanks. Raphie (talk) 11:20, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Merger proposalEdit

I'd be happy if you could give a comment to this merger proposal here: Talk:2007–08 Elitserien season#Merger proposal. It's not a big deal, however I would like some kind of consensus before I do something about it. Cheers Tooga - BØRK! 23:13, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Service awards proposalEdit

  Hello, Bamsefar75! I noticed you display a service award, and would like to invite you to join the discussion over a proposed revamping of the awards.

If you have any opinions on the proposal, please participate in the discussion. Thanks! — the Man in Question (in question) 20:02, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

You are now a ReviewerEdit

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:53, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:FarjestadsBK.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:FarjestadsBK.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.
