Please provide Conservapedia with an amazing entry for NASCAR. Thank you for your attention in this matter. --Huey gunna getcha 16:43, 26 March 2007 (EDT)

100 senators

If 100 senators agreed that would also be a miracle! However, I offer (in jest) that [this page] offers some compelling reasons to consider it. Richard 00:08, 27 March 2007 (EDT)

It would be a miracle.... although I would guess that it has happened before when they all voted for something completely meaningless. --Tash 00:15, 27 March 2007 (EDT)

Football/Sports

Maybe you should write up a few articles on current players for the Indianapolis Colts - that way nobody will think you're a Patriots hack.  :) --Rustyjd07 20:56, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

Sure I'll do Dan Klecko.... Colts fans probably won't want me to write their team page for obvious reasons.--Tash 22:27, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

It's obvious you're a Patriot hack, and who can blame you? The best team in football. It's pretty much the same as liking the Red Sox. BlackholeStorm

The Red Sox don't even approach the Patriots.... --Tash 17:15, 15 April 2007 (EDT)

Besides, they could only be compared to the Yankees. Dynasty to dynasty. Red Sox...pshhh :) --<<-David R->> 21:21, 23 April 2007 (EDT)

Yes, another Yankees fan exists in the world!--Tash 21:32, 23 April 2007 (EDT)

Haha, I had no idea....After the last few games, I do not know how long I will actually be a Yankees fan :( (kidding of course). But their pitching is horrendous. The only reason they're not in last place is A-Rod. --<<-David R->> 23:09, 23 April 2007 (EDT)

Well right now it looks like even A-Rod might not be able to save their season (have they ever been this bad?) --Tash 18:44, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

Is your name a reference to the Calormen god in C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia? --BenjaminS 17:16, 4 April 2007 (EDT)

Yep, you can get an idea for why I use the username here & here....

Seems to be a pointless joke of a blog. --CPAdmin1 18:54, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

Your templates

Hello Tash.

You were the creator of the {{Buffalo Bills Roster}} template, and perhaps others also. Since late May 2007, Conservapedia requires that all templates be properly documented. Please see Creating templates for instructions on this. If the template(s) are not documented, they will be deleted. Thank you for your co-operation in this.

Alternatively, if a particular template is no longer required, please ask a sysop to delete it.
Thanks for that.

(Miami Dolphins Roster also.) — Philip J. Rayment 06:05, 2 June 2007 (EDT)

This is a reminder that these templates have not yet be documented. Philip J. Rayment 09:01, 9 July 2007 (EDT)

Ok, I sort of forgot about that. Thx for reminding me. I'll try to get that done as soon as possible.--Tash 12:38, 16 July 2007 (EDT)

Just as well you said that. I was going to delete one today to force the issue (of course, it could be undeleted). And just to be clear, this refers to any and every template that you've created; not just the two mentioned above. Worst of luck for the contest (I'd wish you the best of luck, but you're on the other team!) :-) Philip J. Rayment 00:31, 17 July 2007 (EDT)

Let me know when the {{New England Patriots Roster}} template is no longer required, and I'll delete that also. Philip J. Rayment 20:53, 18 July 2007 (EDT)

Hi Tash

You have to protect your photos when uploading. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 00:15, 15 July 2007 (EDT)

NBC anchor table

Tash, may I suggest that instead of using an embedded table you use a template for your NBC anchors. If you start with {{Tnavbox basic}} to create a style for the subject (tv anchors) you can then reuse the same style for different sub-topics, say ABC anchors. See what I did with {{Tnb zoid land}} and {{Nb zl felines}}. That way when functionality is added to the box, all existing nav boxes can benefit. Contact me if you need assistance. BrianCo 18:10, 21 July 2007 (EDT)

Tash, I created an intermediate template - {{Tnb tv news anchors}} - and then updated your template to match it. This way all TV news anchors get the same template and if it gets changed for some esthetic reason they all end oup the same without lots of editing. BrianCo 20:09, 21 July 2007 (EDT)

Patriots

Hi Tash,

Well I just went back to look at one of the guys I recently changed and saw you didn't care for it much. Sorry about that. So I guess I better make sure we're on the same page. Based on my understanding, sub-categories are supposed to be filled so that main categories don't get overloaded. So I set up New England Patriot Players as a sub-category of NFL players so they could be removed from the main NFL players spot. Is that ok with you? I'll wait to hear back before I touch anything else in that area. Learn together 00:20, 25 July 2007 (EDT)

If it's not ok with you, then I'll change back the 14 I have done that way. Learn together 01:09, 25 July 2007 (EDT)

Yeah I don't think we're exactly on the same page with this... but that's fine. Since Pats player's are both NEP players and NFL players I was using two category's but since there's a sub-category now they really only to be categorized under New England Patriot Players. Oh, and I wasn't trying to get into a edit war, I didn't notice that you had removed the NFL category, I thought I had just originally forgot to put the category on in the first place when I was checking/updating the pages last night. So go ahead and do what you're doing. Thanks --Tash 09:41, 25 July 2007 (EDT)
No problem ;-) I just want to make sure I'm not stepping on your toes. Obviously you spent a lot of time entering in the players and it's pretty much your baby. If you ever feel I'm going 'out of bounds' just let me know. ;-) BTW it was great having you on the team. It looks like we pulled off the comeback in our last day of the contest, but of course Conservapedia won either way. ;-) Learn together 11:11, 25 July 2007 (EDT)
Nope, it didn't bother me at all:) Thanks for recategorizing them.--Tash 11:54, 25 July 2007 (EDT)

Meet the press navbox

May I suggest that you keep the same color format for navboxes of the same ilk? BrianCo 18:40, 6 August 2007 (EDT)

I notice that you created this navbox from scratch. This is not necessary as there is a deafult template for them. If you need any advice then let me know. BrianCo 18:55, 6 August 2007 (EDT)

Hi BrianCO,

Thanks for the suggestions. If I'm not mistaken the colors on the MtP navbox are the same( you may have already fixed them), but i'll make sure that their the same in the future. Feel free to edit the MtP and NBC navboxes as you like.

Thanks,--Tash 09:40, 7 August 2007 (EDT)

Actually, on re-reading it - the problem was not a "liberal slant" but a kind of Wikipedian NPOV. "It has been said that, some have criticized as, etc."
It's better to call a spade a spade, and give references. --Ed Poor Talk 23:56, 28 August 2007 (EDT)

Got ya, I don't think the article is liberal at all, but "critics claim" sort of is a weasel Wikipedian word so I'll work on editing that. They all have refs so it should be no problem.--Tash 09:27, 29 August 2007 (EDT)

Yes. It's okay to assert an idea as "fact" if the references are easily checked.
If HRW sides with the enemies of Israel, it should be easy to prove this by quoting them and by quoting analyses of their statements. --Ed Poor Talk 09:59, 29 August 2007 (EDT)

From the article Anti-Israel

The Israeli conflict with the Palestinians and Hezbollah has brought about serious questions of HRW objectivity. During the span of four years, from October 2000 to April 2004, HWR has written 103 reports, the vast majority of these reports condemned Israe l[39]. During the same time the organization only wrote thirty highlighting the Palestinian terror attack.

According to Gerald M. Steinberg, a research associate at the BESA Center for Strategic Studies, HRW has ignored the terrorist suicide attacks designed to kill innocent civilians, while criticizing Israel for a, “policy of targeted killing of terrorist leaders, such as Hamas leaders Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and ‘Abd al-‘Aziz ar-Rantisi[40] .” He goes on to state in his article that, “The political bias of non-governmentally organizations on the Middle East, coupled with their lack of public accountability and transparency, is beginning to chip away at their credibility[41] .”

In 2006, HRW released a 50 page report, "Fatal Strikes: Israel's Indiscriminate Attacks Against Civilians in Lebanon," which covered civilians deaths they claimed were caused by Israel in their conflict with the terrorist group Hezbollah. Israel stated that the many of the deaths were caused by Hezbollah’s use of civilian areas and human shields. HRW stated that there was no evidence that Hezbollah used human shields, but this notion was widely known as untrue. While focusing on Israel’s “indiscriminate bombing”, HRW failed to report significantly on Hezbollah’s launching of 2,000 rockets at civilian areas. HRW criticized Israel’s building of a fence in the West Bank, calling it part of an "illegal" land grab[42]. Anthony Weiner, a Democrat Congressman, was shocked at the idiosyncrasy of the charges, he stated, "Given that the security fence has inarguably reduced terrorism and death by would-be Palestinian bombers, it seems any organization truly concerned about human rights should be supporting Israel's right to construct it”[43]. Even a liberal newsmagazine, The New Republic, could not resist the slant of HRW coverage[44] . David Horowitz, professor of law at Harvard Law School, stated that Human Rights Watch was a, "reflexive Israel-basher … who, in his zest to pillory Israel at every turn, is little more than an ally of the barbarians[45]."

Walter Cronkite

I don't believe we have a category on that yet. But if there was one created would it include current media figure, or just past ones? ---Tash 11:23, 19 September 2007 (EDT)

I'm looking for a way to tag anyone who "lied, and then people died". You know, the accusation the left is always making against Bush.

Did Walter Cronkite lie about the good side's ability to win the Vietnam War, and did this lie result in the deaths of one million people? If so, he should be "tagged" for this. --Ed Poor Talk 11:25, 19 September 2007 (EDT)

I know what you mean. I think it would be fine to create a category for that. Last night I was watching a documentary on the Vietnam War and I was amazed at the similarities regarding the media's effect on that war and the current war in Iraq. They sure know how to spin the story. --Tash 11:31, 19 September 2007 (EDT)

Hello!

I'm sorry, I've never edited this or Wikipedia before today, so I hope I'm doing this correctly. I believe that you sent me a message that said this:

This isn't Wikipedia - remember that

Sorry if this sounds stupid, but what do you mean? In the little I've done so far, I've tried to be unbiased in my edits. Have I sounded like an atheist or something? (I'm not)-Imperatoromnium

Congratulations!!!

Congratulations!!!! (if you haven't looked yet, you're a team captain!!) :) DeborahB. 09:12, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

Wow, what does being a team captain entail? --Tash 12:21, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

Contest

Tash, as captain of the first team you can now pick your team. Choose about 5-6 teammates, and then the other captain (Sharon) will choose the same number.

In our prior contest, it took too long to pick teammates with alternating selections. This time, I've simply prepared a list for you to choose from. This list includes many of our top contributors so I think you can pick a very strong team. If, after selection, you feel their is an imbalance in team strength, then we can consider trades.

Please choose your team from this list (many of whom were on the winning Team 1 last time):

  • Joaquin Martinez
  • Jallen
  • HelpJazz
  • Crocoite
  • Additioner
  • Conservateur
  • SPierce
  • Learn together
  • DanH
  • Ed Poor
  • Karajou
  • TK

If you like, you can suggest additional teammates not on this list, but several members and friends of Sharon's prior team (which lost) already want to be on Sharon's team again to try harder this time and redeem the loss. So there is no guarantee that other choices are available. If you see someone strong who began posting in the last few days, then you can probably choose that person also.

One more thought: pick your mascot so we can use colorful names like the "panthers" rather than team 1! Godspeed.--Aschlafly 16:00, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

Ok, I've left comments on the (six) user pages of the guys that I've chosen for my team. I'm still trying to think of a good name (Hillary's Village People, The Vast Right Wing Conspirators, Ferocious Poodles, Reagan's Old Guard... still thinking as you can see) and I'll try to have one by Sunday afternoon. Once I get responses back where do I move from there?--Tash 19:16, 22 September 2007 (EDT)
OK, that's great, we'll go with team sizes of 7: the captain plus six teammates. I'll post a message on Sharon's user page asking her to pick her team. Let's tentatively plan on starting the contest on Tuesday, which will give time for the players to confirm their participation and for you to replace anyone who can make it. The contest runs one week. In the meantime the captains can pick mascots and settle on the point system. Godspeed.--Aschlafly 19:42, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

User:Iduan

Hey Tash - is there any chance I could get in on the contest?--IDuan 22:08, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

I've already "picked" my team but I'll keep you in mind if someone drops out. I'm not sure if Sharon has picked her team yet so she might be a better person to ask--Tash 22:13, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

Tash, we'll start the contest Friday to give the captains more time to form their teams. Thanks and Godspeed.--Aschlafly 12:20, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

Are we using the same rules/scoring as the last contest? HelpJazz 22:23, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
  • Hey, Tash, can you slap up a team list or something? I assume we could use the old team pages? Can you find out? Thanks! --şŷŝôρ-₮KṢρёаќǃ 00:03, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

The team so far

  • HelpJazz
  • Crocoite
  • Learn together
  • DanH
  • TK
  • Tash
  • Ed Poor (pretty sure)

We may need to add another person depending on how many people Sharon picks for her team--Tash 08:06, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

Tash, Have you seen this? Team_Galaxy --Crocoite 18:12, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Yep, I was just about to ask for some suggestions for the team's name. If anyone has any ideas post them here and then I'll get to work (unless someone else on the team really like to do it:) on making our team page. Thanks--Tash 18:43, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
Heh heh let's see.... Our team is made up of 6 conservatives and 1 lonely libertarian. I think we should call ourselves "Team Affirmative Action"! Heh, the other team is almost all girls (sorry Andy) maybe we could just call ourselves "The Good Old Boys". HelpJazz 18:54, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
Other then Aschlafly, Galaxy is a all girl team.... thanks for the suggestions:)--Tash 18:58, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
Need input here so I can start our team page - should it be the "Good Old Boys" or something else?
I'm fine with G.O.B. HelpJazz

I'm fine with it, anyone else?--Tash 22:48, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Whatever you guys like, I am fine with. GOB is kinda bad, lol. --şŷŝôρ-₮KṢρёаќǃ 23:30, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
I don't really like GOB, and the mascot should really have a graphic. --Crocoite 14:19, 27 September 2007 (EDT)
Ok I've settled on at least the temporary name of Team Airborne. This name is subject to change but since the contest starts tomorrow I thought I mine as well pick something...will be working on the page tonight(--Tash 16:55, 27 September 2007 (EDT)
I like the name - Team Airborne. --Crocoite 16:58, 27 September 2007 (EDT)

Our team page is now here--Tash 19:34, 27 September 2007 (EDT)

Scoring System

We need to agree on any changes to the basic point system outlined here. I suggest only 1/3rd credit for sports-related entries, unless the sports figure has a significant impact (like Evander Holyfield).--Aschlafly 22:59, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Timetravel?

Note

Hey Tash - I heard that there might be a team member that has a schedule conflict (or something like that) - so I'd just like to make a quick post just to say that if anything does happen - I'd still be very interested in joining your team - thanks so much! --IDuan 23:22, 27 September 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, I haven't heard back from one person so if they don't get back to me you're in--Tash 08:34, 28 September 2007 (EDT)
Tash, add as many players as you like. Let's handle the imbalance in teammates as follows: only the top 7 scorers will count towards the team total at the end. OK? Godspeed.--Aschlafly 11:44, 28 September 2007 (EDT)
That's actually a really good idea. Great!--Tash 12:47, 28 September 2007 (EDT)

I think you are a sysop

PostoStudanto -- This guy seems like a troublemaker--maybe you could look at his 90/10 violations. Mathers 20:05, 28 September 2007 (EDT)

No I'm not a sysop but I'll take a look at the situation:) Thanks--Tash 20:11, 28 September 2007 (EDT)
After looking at his edits I think it's clear that he's one of our liberals residents.... He doesn't have close to 90 edits yet so I don't believe the 90/10 rule has kicked in yet but hopeful he'll become more productive and supportive of the site soon as he can stick around.--Tash 20:17, 28 September 2007 (EDT)

Team Contest

Hi Tash! Do you have a total number of points for Team Airborne for days one and two? I'm coming up with 564 points, based on the records listed on your team's page. Is that near what you have? Also, the total for Team Galaxy, as of 9:23 EST is 769.5 points. Thanks much, ~ SharonTalk 21:27, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

I haven't added up day two's points yet, but I'm going to do it soon. As far as the points for day one, the number on the main page is wrong because it doesn't take into account Learn together's edits (because they were not recorded until this afternoon). So for day one the amount of points for Airborne was 512 (Tash: 133pt, Crocoite: 69pt, Ed Poor: 28pt, TK:6pt, Iduan: 14pt , Learn together: 256pt, HelpJazz: 6). I'll try to have todays points out soon. Thanks, --Tash 21:49, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Thank you. I see that Learn together has some edits from today that I didn't count, because once again, they weren't recorded. I thought that your score seemed rather too low to be true :) Let me know once you have it worked out, and I will post the scores on the main page. Thanks, ~ SharonTalk 21:53, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Order

Hey Tash - in order to keep track of points more easily I was thinking we would do seomthing like what Team Galaxy did - place the top 7 contributors on their page with their total points. Can you confirm what I have so far?

  • Crocoite = 117 pts (estimated by me)
  • DanH = 28 pts
  • EdPoor = 28 pts
  • HelpJazz = 34 pts
  • LearnTogether = 322 pts
  • TK = 6 pts
  • Tash = 210 pts
  • Iduan = 64 pts

And then the top 7 would be LearnTogether, you, Crocoite, me, EdPoor, DanH and then Help Jazz/TK - which would bring the total (minus 6 pts since we have 8 members) to: 571. Does that look right?

Yes, thats fine. I'll try to do that after I figure out the total. Thanks, --Tash 22:08, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
I have just updated my point total for day two (28 points), bringing up my day two total to 34. I'm probably done for the night so I shouldn't mess up your calculating for the rest of the night ;-) HelpJazz 22:23, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

No problem! Feel free to update it.--Tash 22:24, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

I've moved the points list over to our Team Airborne page, so you can update it there. --Tash 22:33, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Ok - I'll watch everyone's page and I'll try to update it whenever possible - however - can I ask how you got the Crocoite number? When I went to his /contest page I thought he had less showing - but I guess I could be wrong.--IDuan 22:52, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
I looked through his contributions and estimated. The number is not exact, but its close (once he post his points, I can change to the exact number). --Tash 09:27, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

Hmmm

Haha, Tash - make an edit - quick! Based on what you just added to your contest page - the total of Learn together's edits (322) and your's (344) add to 666!!!! lol--IDuan 19:33, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

Flanders role on McCarthy Page

The talk page has been locked on the Joseph McCarthy page. So, it's difficult to address any issues pertaining to the page. To wit, there are unsubstatiated statements in italics referring to Senator Flanders's initiative to censure the Senator from Wisconsin:

While, over the past few years, Senator McCarthy withstood countless biased and unsubstantiated attacks by Liberals, Communists, etc., the organized effort to remove McCarthy from his Chairmanship and officially condemn him began in the Spring of 1954. It was started by fellow Republican Senator Ralph E. Flanders of Vermont at the behest of a coalition of Communists, Liberals, and Eisenhower Administration officials. Flanders told the Senate that McCarthy's "anti-Communism so completely parallels that of Adolf Hitler as to strike fear into the hearts of any defenseless minority"; accused McCarthy of spreading "division and confusion" and saying, "Were the Junior Senator from Wisconsin in the pay of the Communists he could not have done a better job for them."[97] Flanders had obtained his list of charges against McCarthy from a left-wing group named the National Committee for an Effective Congress.

The citable literature suggests that Flanders felt that McCarthy's emphasis on possible Communists within our borders distracted us from a much greater menace of Communist encroachment abroad. The literature shows Flanders to be a conservative marching to his own drummer and not supported (except for one note from Eisenhower after his March speech) by the administration. Given Flanders's professed enmity towards the Roosevelt administration, it is remarkable to suggest that he would be in collaboration with the National Committee for an Effective Congress. Instead, he consulted with Senators Cooper and Fulbright to develop articles of censure that were consistent with previous actions.

I request that the italicized statements be either deleted or substantiated with proper references. User:Norwich 10/21/07

Re

I appreciate your concern. I'm sorry that you consider what I'm doing "playing," I'd appreciate more respect than that. I'm really not liberal at all; I'm sorry you made that assumption. I'm also sorry you thought my edit was an "attack." It's not an attack to state the objective truth. I have nothing against Conservapedia, my only commitment is to the truth. The edits I made are really undisputable facts. I found other instances of photo bias on both liberal and convervative Conservapedia pages; I just didn't think it was necessary to note the instances of photo bias against conservatives since some examples are already given. Photo bias is a tactic, and tactis are neither liberal or conservative. Beliefs, views, policy positions, etc are things that can be liberal or conservative. Photo bias and other tactics can be used to advance any agenda, liberal or conservative (unless you're disputing this point). I know what would need to go on a talk page and what is fine without. I have no problem with Conservapedia, but there is a difference in writing an article from a conservative point of view and lying. I can understand reasonable people in general can disagree whether something should be put on the talk page or can go straight to the article (although I really don't see it in this case), but if you choose to interpret a statement of fact as an attack on Conservapedia and try to bully in order to get your way, that's your prerogative. I hoped to stick around, but it's honestly not worth my time if these kinds of threats continue.

Cheers, MWH

Your edits to photo bias deserved to be reverted for several reasons. First, Conservapedia discloses its point-of-view while the New York Times does not. Second, the photo bias by the New York Times is not simply a matter of making someone look unflattering, but rather to push an ideology.--Aschlafly 21:32, 9 November 2007 (EST)

Revert

Hey Tash - how come you reverted me on the New England Patriots page? I've been making templates like that for quite a few teams now - and this is the first revert I've gotten (and you also changed the spacing to be wrong again)--16:34, 25 November 2007 (EST)

We went through this months (June) ago when I started to do the same thing and ended up having to have all the templates deleted(see [11]). Also, I really didn't think the template was an improvement over the old roster and also contained a copyrighted photo.--Tash 16:39, 25 November 2007 (EST)
Well to start with, the photo wasn't copyrighted - i can show you the commons search engine i found it on, and I guess I could just add the text directly, however as far as an improvement goes - well, to start with, the template had the updated roster - there are a few mistakes in that one there now, and secondly the template used official team colors - as opposed to guessing about colors.--IDuan 16:41, 25 November 2007 (EST)

The photo isn't copyrighted?? Would you mind giving a source for where you got it then to prove that?--Tash 16:45, 25 November 2007 (EST)

Sure - well, I can't can't you the exact page - i'll look for that in a bit if you insist, however I used this website here, and made sure the picture was oen that could be used for commercial purposes and edited. And in response to your "we went over this in June" - the reason your templates were deleted is because they were not documented - I have documented the ones you saw--IDuan 16:50, 25 November 2007 (EST)

I actually did document them and we decided to get rid of them anyways since they were only going to be used on one page. I've been around for a while kid so don't act like you know everything. The only reason why there is an NFL section on this site is because I built it.--Tash 16:53, 25 November 2007 (EST)

And I ask again - where is the source for the photo. The link just went to a site home page.--Tash 16:54, 25 November 2007 (EST)
  • Tash, you have acted properly in this case, and there is no need for you to justify it. Iduan, I suggest you stop picking needless fights that I will end up adjudicating, and not, most likely in a way you will like! Cease now! --şyŝoρ-₮K/Ṣρёаќǃ 17:00, 25 November 2007 (EST)
TK we're discussing how to do the template - not every disagreement is a fight. Tash - if you can look at the other edit I did move it to a subpage so that it's not technically a template - and this is something we've done before - see the HTML Table Formatting page for an example :) --IDuan 17:02, 25 November 2007 (EST)
Oh sorry about that Tash - I didn't give you the link again here it is - now the yahoo says it "may be subject to copyright" - however again I've guaranteed we can use it with that website. Oh and the link to the subpage is New England Patriots/Roster--IDuan 17:04, 25 November 2007 (EST)

Well, I can guaranteed that those photo are 100% copyrighted and it is unethical to use them on this site (something we went over way back...the sports teams userbox's disc.)--Tash 17:08, 25 November 2007 (EST)

Well again, the search engine that doesn't allow me to even see copyright images would disagree with you, but in that case should I just re-add the updated table then (without the picture until we get the pic sorted out) - because again, mine is actually using team colors - and it's updated - there were a few expired players on the other one.--IDuan 17:13, 25 November 2007 (EST)
did you happen to read this (This image may be subject to copyright) right beside the photo? I think the case on the photo is closed. It's most likely copyrighted and you can't prove otherwise. The colors on the current roster box (red, blue and silver) are the official team colors so I'm not sure what you are talking about there and the roster does not contain any errors.--Tash 17:15, 25 November 2007 (EST)
Actually I explained that already - the "This image may be' part - I believe I did so 3 comments up - just before TK's comment. As to the Colors - I used specific colors from the logo, that are more accurate than 'red blue and silver'. And I think you'll find if you look it over - the roster does contain errors, however regardless - baby steps. I'm going to change the color pattern to the more specific one, if you don't mind - and I might change some style elements of it - like centering.--IDuan 17:18, 25 November 2007 (EST)
Oh - and I took out some arbitrary code that didn't affect the template at all (like the extra rows)--IDuan 17:19, 25 November 2007 (EST)
Oh wow - really sorry about this - you were right about the mistakes. The source that I went to used a strange method of sorting out players that I didn't notice- sorry. Oh and by the way I just did the style changes --IDuan 17:23, 25 November 2007 (EST)

Ok great, excellent job.--Tash 17:24, 25 November 2007 (EST)

ahh, thanks so much! Again, really sorry about that misunderstanding - I'm never using that website again. Anyways - just wanted to quickly congratulate you on how well you've done that page (I'm assuming you've done most of it since your the huge Patriots fan). You really stayed balanced in the scandal issue and the history-table was really impressive - that must have taken a lot of research! Great job! (And one more question: how sure are you that the Patriots will go undefeated this year?)--IDuan 17:27, 25 November 2007 (EST)

Yeah, the Patriots should go undefeated this year as long as Brady stays healthy. Well, to wrap up this discussion, great job on your side of not just rolling over to what I said without checking for yourself. We need more people on this site like that. Glad we could come to an agreement:)--Tash 17:32, 25 November 2007 (EST)

  • You will need to document your changes and creation of templates, some of which I cannot find were ever approved, gentlemen. --şyŝoρ-₮K/Ṣρёаќǃ 17:52, 25 November 2007 (EST)
That's to me. TK I'm going to propose the templates I created for deletion and move them to subpages (where they aren't really templates )- sorry I didn't get them approved beforehand, but they'll be gone as soon as I move them--IDuan 17:56, 25 November 2007 (EST)
  • Please, please.....keep the entries labeled templates. Discard the other transcluded pages. Let me know when you are done, and I will delete the second set of pages you created. Please do not apply speedy or delete templates to them, just link me to them on my talk page. A "template" by any other name, is still acting as a template. They still need to be protected against vandals, etc. I know there isn't anyway you should have known all of this, and appreciate you making the extra effort, Issac! --şyŝoρ-₮K/Ṣρёаќǃ 22:31, 25 November 2007 (EST)
