Scott Walker for PresidentEdit

Hey Muboshgu, here are a couple articles proving a guy by the name of Scott Walker from Delaware, a Democrat, has intentions of running for president in 2020. And he is forming an exploratory committee. (Not to be confused with the other Scott Walker, Wisconsin Governor.)

As far as the Delaware Scott Walker, he is a former manager of a couple recovery houses. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rammstein05 (talkcontribs) 20:58, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

@Rammstein05: I am familiar with the Delaware Scott Walker. I thought he most recently indicated he'd run for the House. Is your comment in response to an edit I've made? – Muboshgu (talk) 21:45, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/ShellwoodEdit

I thought semi or ECP creation protection would be better so Shellwood or another experienced user could create it in the future. Sorry, I should have specified that in my request. EclipseDude (talk) 06:14, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

EclipseDude, no problem. I can adjust it down. – Muboshgu (talk) 17:27, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Pretty sure User:Jimboswife was trying thoughtfully to create that RfA. We should all let that great Wikipedian do that. --Samthecannon (talk) 03:07, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

ITN section linkEdit

Hey. I fixed the link to the archived section (with this edit). If this is what you wanted, then you may want to look at Percent-encoding#Percent-encoding reserved characters. If this wasn't what you wanted, please revert me. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 05:12, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Or wikipedia's help page Help:URL#Fixing links with unsupported characters --DannyS712 (talk) 05:16, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
DannyS712, that totally makes sense. I knew it'd be something I wasn't thinking of. Thanks! – Muboshgu (talk) 05:20, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Spare cycles?Edit

Would value an uninvolved opinion or closing at Template_talk:Infobox_college_coach#Use_of_the_“sport”_field. Also see the main template's recent edit history. Regards.—Bagumba (talk) 14:42, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Bagumba, I'll take a look. – Muboshgu (talk) 16:33, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Template:Infobox college coachEdit

Muboshgu, I just reverted your edit at Template:Infobox college coach. My edit summary contained typos so I wanted to clarify. I see you were concerned that the heading "Current position" was subject to becoming dated. But the fields in that section only apply when they are current. When the person retires, those fields are no longer applicable and should be cleared out. In other words, the heading "Current position" will never be dated, unless the data fields directly below it are also out-of-date. Jweiss11 (talk) 21:59, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Ro Khanna editEdit

Why did you undo my citation needed addition(s) to the Ro Khanna page? The fact remains; there are statements made that have no cites, and frankly, are poorly-worded. Asaturn (talk) 04:05, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Asaturn, I didn't undo any of your edits. – Muboshgu (talk) 18:36, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Is your account secure? Asaturn (talk) 08:08, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
Asaturn, yes, it is. There were several edits in between your edit mentioning "no cite for Roe and Rooney and Sarbanes" and my two minor edits on January 12.[1] – Muboshgu (talk) 16:13, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Your attention pleaseEdit

User:AdamBGregory keeps putting entries on the Texas Rangers minor league players page. Up to close to a dozen. Just wanted you to beware of it and see if any of the players he added are notable. (talk) 23:17, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Recent adds to Rangers minors listEdit

All recent adds have been either a recent high round draft pick, recently acquired player, and or player awarded a 2018 organizational award. Most of them are also on a Baseball America/milb team top 30 list, or will soon be on when they update before the start of the 2019 season. AdamBGregory (talk) 00:06, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

AdamBGregory, it should be based on notability, or rather, near notability. None of those things matter much if there isn't some sourcing behind them. I haven't looked through them all, but Demarcus Evans looks weak. Just The Baseball Cube, stats page, and a tweet? Are there no newspapers writing about him? – Muboshgu (talk) 00:22, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Adam OttavinoEdit

Hey Muboshgu,

Just wanted to let you know that Adam Ottavino signing with the New York Yankees is NOT as previously stated as being "anonymous sources" is NOT TRUE.

Furthermore as per previous message, here is the link as you had asked.


When i posted that Ottavino signing with the Yankees, it was reported on by the team and on Newsday (based in Long Island, NY) Newspaper website.

The claim being premature was already refuted by two sources as mentioned above.

Here's the link — Preceding unsigned comment added by S.D. Benedetto (talkcontribs) 15:14, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

S.D. Benedetto, I didn't say it was a "false" post, but it is premature. The team did not comment on it. Newsday says "The team did not announce the deal, which is pending a physical." Physicals can be failed. It's not unprecedented for a deal to be leaked only for it to fall apart. The reporters who do this work are WP:BREAKINGNEWS as part of their job. We are an encyclopedia and need to wait for things to be verified. – Muboshgu (talk) 15:17, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Adam OttavinoEdit

How many sources does one need to have for it to be verified, by the way it's been reported on YES Network last night (YES Network) the New York Yankees Channel. Where's there so called "Premature". It's already confirmed by more than two sources.

I'll trust YES Network over ESPN any day of the week.

So "WP:BREAKINGNEWS" it is beyond that, however out of deference of arguing semantics regarding last minute deals falling apart, I agree so let's see the PRESS CONFERENCE on YES Network start and finish before we put Ottavino as a Yankee on Wikipedia. DEAL?

I think that's beyond fair — Preceding unsigned comment added by S.D. Benedetto (talkcontribs) 15:33, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

S.D. Benedetto, yes, we want to wait for an official team announcement that the deal is done. Before that, there's still a chance an agreement could fall apart. YES Network is partly owned by the team, but it has editorial independence from the team, like and MLB. – Muboshgu (talk) 18:14, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
