List of NHL franchise post-season droughtsEdit

I see you've kept the page sane against the waves of fans trying to do updates on individual teams :P We've now reached the point where all 16 qualified teams are known, so if it's okay with you I'd like that round to be updated now, and green backgrounds added to those teams in later rounds (like here: -- Petrograd (talk) 02:39, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

@Petrograd:Go for it, once all the teams are known I don't care who updates the information. Deadman137 (talk) 02:45, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
Haha, fair enough :D I'll do it if no one has done it yet :P -- Petrograd (talk) 03:03, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Series RecapsEdit

I've noticed you've been taking the series recaps I work on in my sandbox. Either that or you and I have very similar writing styles. If you have been taking them from my sandbox, I do appreciate it; being on the West Coast, I often don't have the computer availability until much later. You are welcome to take the recaps I work on, especially for those earlier games.Conyo14 (talk) 04:38, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Yeah I did just that, I've known for a while that you always keep a record of each series there and I also know that you properly cite them too. I only did that because the quality of what was popping up in it's place was a bit lower than what we're used to. I'm fairly certain that our writing styles are not the exact same, but we've both been doing this long enough that we know how to quickly encapsulate a game. Most of the time I'm more than happy to let you have the glory, though if we start getting crap in the summary I'll look to what you have stored because I know that I can trust that it be of high enough quality for the article.

I'll be busy tonight, so if Vegas wins in overtime, would you mind placing it for me? Conyo14 (talk) 02:02, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Done if necessary. Deadman137 (talk) 02:10, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Re: Stanley CupEdit

Really? COME ON! Can we not frame it like we're laughing at the division winners? That sounds boring and I don't like that! I know we have to be objective, but in this case, can't we just say "all four wild-card teams upset the division winners and punched their ticket to the second round"? What's wrong with that? We still say objective, but we frame it in a good light. Mk8mlyb (talk) 04:13, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

@Mk8mlyb: We're not making fun of the division winners, just stating what happened to them. Unfortunately what you're suggesting does not take into consideration the rarity of what has occurred during the opening round of this year's playoffs. Deadman137 (talk) 04:53, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
@Deadman137:'re right. But it sounds boring. Mk8mlyb (talk) 05:12, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
@Mk8mlyb: You're right it is boring, but our job is to document and accurately report what happened, without any concern to its entertainment value. Honestly don't let it get you down, it's just the guidelines that we have to follow. Deadman137 (talk) 05:29, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
@Deadman137: Sure, but I'd like to catch the readers' attention and keep them hooked. It'll keep the wiki fresh and exciting. I mean, just look around on so many of the sports pages and you'll see so many examples of that excitement. Mk8mlyb (talk) 05:44, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

List of St. Louis Blues seasonsEdit

Hi. I'd just like to give you credit for removing the PIM category. Like you say, it's almost hopeless to keep an accurate track of this. Annoying, considering that all the other columns are correct. Thanks, good move! Stavol2 (talk) 20:19, 1 May 2019 (UTC)


I know full well I didn’t put the complete box score in (Sharks-Avs), but I don’t see why there was any reason to delete the edit and say “not helping.” I consider myself a WikiGnome. Helping in small ways is what I like to do. Explain what I did wrong and I promise it won’t happen again. –RedSoxFan274 (talk~contribs) 05:09, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

@RedSoxFan274: I can appreciate the gnoming, it's that we need to take irrelevant information at that point off of the template and small well meaning edits create edit conflicts. Honestly you did nothing wrong, it was just faster to revert and add the box score from the one window than it was to copy and paste it into a new window. Sorry for any confusion it may have caused. Deadman137 (talk) 05:26, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
Oh no, let me apologize. I didn’t think I may have created an edit conflict on your end. I can see how that would be frustrating. Forgive me if I sounded harsh; it was just the “not helping” edit summary made me a little hot under the collar. I need to learn not to take things so personally! Thanks for explaining. Water under the bridge. :) –RedSoxFan274 (talk~contribs) 05:34, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Stanley Cup Finals infoboxEdit

Hi. How do we determine which team is listed in the "team1" and "team2" parameters of the infobox? I had a few ideas about the order but after looking at the previous years I am confused. – Sabbatino (talk) 17:07, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

@Sabbatino: Easy, team2 is supposed to be the team with home ice under this set up, so for this year's article it's Boston and team1 will be the Blues or Sharks. What probably screwed you up after briefly looking at it was the set up of the 2015 article, which should be fixed. I'll deal with it sometime this weekend unless you beat me to fixing it. Deadman137 (talk) 19:22, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
Yes. The 2015 page confused me. Thanks for explanation. And I also fixed it. – Sabbatino (talk) 20:33, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Discussion with IP

I have not edited anything on Wikipedia so... I do not know why you are threatening to block me?

  • They're not threatening you, they're warning you. And whoever you are, you are editing from an IP address from which edits were made. Drmies (talk) 03:49, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Okay but that wasn't my edit though lol and that's not my IP address. So therefore its a threat.

  • That's a non sequitur, and you can hardly maintain that your IP address is not your IP address. Drmies (talk) 04:26, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

It is a reply actually... You make no sense at all sir.

You do realize that you're not scaring anyone with your nonsense, right? At this point you get to make a choice, start being a constructive editor and be left to your own devices or continue on with what you have been doing and see where that gets you. Either way, the ball is in your court. Deadman137 (talk) 12:51, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

I have a question, Why do you keep putting that June Jones is on the XFL Houston team, when there is nothing confirmed from the XFL or XFL Houston?
