James GillespieEdit

Hello GiantSnowman, I am seancrowe223. I have recently found on eu-football.info the birth and date dates for James Gillespie, the former Scotland right winger of the mid 1880s. The eu-football site says that Mr Gillespie was born on 22 March 1868 and died on 5 August 1932 aged 64. Seancrowe233 (talk) 13:20, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. What shall I understand with your statement "...indeed there is nothing wrong with it.". Can I just remove any information or data entered any article, regardless its size and supporting sources? Isik (talk) 11:27, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Sorry about MavididiEdit

Sorry about the edit I made on stephy Mavididi, the last time I edited the synopsis and I didn’t put some kind of citation I got a warning. And I’m on mobile so i can’t keep editing through the whole article. So I usually try to find two sources (to use in different parts of the article) if I edit the synopsis which I usually don’t. Also, I don’t know how to use the same citation for two places in the same article so that’s why I did what I did. Sorry! Paul Vaurie (talk) 19:42, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

You stated explain “integral”, so I removed it, and added the goals that contributed to the title. Not mentioning the league title and his contribution to that is not encyclopaedic. Barton Dave (talk) 21:06, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Mentioned validation for “decisive” on my talk page: see the sources. It’s not saying he was “decisive” to the league title, rather those specific games. I’m not arguing with you as ultimately you were correct in removing what I’d first added (the integral claim had previously been added by someone else). His contributions away from home were particularly notable throughout the season, and did contribute to the title. Barton Dave (talk) 21:16, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
