US Marshals

You're gonna have to sit tight and give others a chance to add to it. Or you can go to non-HT-USA and study up for yourself. I don't have the time atm to do more myself. This weekend if others haven't done so by then.

I'm doing a little now. Btw, you could probably delete some of the comments on your user talk page. --septimusjm 16:08, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Youth Academy

Do you mind if I make a seperate page for the Youth Academy. At the minute it is part of the page Youth. --kelenehan 3 August 2007

Yes. Polish.


I joined you, the adminstrators as the responsible of the Hebrew Wiki. There is a chance to change my user name in Hattrick Wiki to MELAFEFON-zigdon (like in hattrick)? zigdon 13:30, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Answer Template

Yay, this template indicate to people that the Spanish Wiki or a article is in process to being translated. However, also indicate that anyone can colaborate in the translate.

Answer Template II

Yes, thanks. Was Austria. I was searching the page with template/flags.


Club templatte

I thought we might consider change the club template to this:

{{{teamname}}} ({{{teamid}}})
managed by [[User:{{{htuser}}}|{{{htuser}}}]]
Location [[{{{region}}}]], [[{{{country}}}]]
Arena {{{arena}}}
Fan Club {{{fanclub}}}

User pages

As you might have notices I'm trying to move all actricles about users to user pages. What do you think I should do with Hattrick workers? Should they have their own article (like Mod-Beachboy by example) or should those pages be moved to a user page (User:Mod-Beachboy? Please let me know what you think. --Rob184 22:49, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

IMHO workers should be in the main namespace. --Jhattara 09:57, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Thnx for your quick awnser. I agree with you --Rob184 11:05, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Well, "User:XYZ" looks rly sux, so IMO we all should have this stinky prefix or nobody. --Gjankowski 22:35, 28 January 2008 (UTC)


Damn, you were quick... I was just researching the correct ISO-Code for Georgian, when I suddenly saw you moving things around. :) I've though taken the occasion to leave this message in Sakartvelo's conference: 10387807.16 --Mod-Karlthegreat 19:11, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm always quick when it comes to Wiki-editing :) --Jhattara 19:15, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Hehe, true that is. Oh, as I'm already lurking around here, could you (and Rob184 too, if you see this @ Rob) [[1]] on this, so that I could forward it to a GM? --Mod-Karlthegreat 19:23, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes I saw it :-) I just posted a comment on it. --Rob184 14:12, 26 December 2007 (UTC)


Can't see why my addition was removed, imo an addition that is good to know. At least the part "No matter how good your team experience is you are still very likely to lose some midfield due to confusion." could've been left there. No? (unsigned comment by Hoo-cee)

-Cheers! I like it now.


Hi! Searching results page has а link to Hattrick:Поиск article, not a Hattrick:Ru/Поиск. If there's no possibility to change a link, I think you have to rename this article back.

Best regards and Happy New Year!

--Artem Kholopov 19:21, 30 December 2007 (UTC)


Hi, Jhattara. What do you think about adding interwiki? For example: Hattrick. --MOMOOO 18:32, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

That's exactly why I created the Interwiki templates. --Jhattara 08:06, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey guys, why can't you setup [[lang:article_name]] to work correct, just like on I'm very disappointed with these new templates. --Artem Kholopov 16:20, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

It's not up to us. It's up to the HTs. I could ask them if it could be done without too much work or taking up lots of more resources. As it is I think the templates I created work, but don't look pretty. And it's better than the previous state of no interwiki links. --Jhattara 17:13, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Would it (User:MOMOOO/Interwiki test) be better? --MOMOOO 17:50, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
I like the Interwiki templates I did more. The navigation template style usually works very well, but I think that in this case it would just clutter the pages. Maybe if the header (Interwiki) was left out, and the width would be adjusted to the contents. --Jhattara 18:54, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
(to Jhattara) I would be thankful if you do this --Artem Kholopov 18:23, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Seen this edit right now. As soon as jhattara has commented on that menu thingy, I'll ask a GM for help (to tell the HTs about). I think it's the best thing I also ask for a newer version of wikimedia and for a possible switch to multiple language versions. Also I'm going to ask to make jhattara Bureaucrat, that way round he can kick out the lazy administrators and has more rights on other things also (afaik...). I can't promise we get anything of this though (it's better to expect nothing and to get something than expecting everything and getting nothing). The HT wiki has grown a lot during the last months (especially since I made a request via the GMs to get lock out the IPs from editing). Let's pray and hope it won't take too long. --Mod-Karlthegreat 19:13, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
I checked the navigation menu suggestions shortly and thought that it's too long as it is. It should have 0 double entries and be as short as possible. See this for more details. --Jhattara 20:24, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Template in a template

Question about templates. I tried to use the {{Flag/}} template for Sean Granner. Is there any possibility to use a template in a template? That would allow me to replace the two flags in the Infobox. --Mod-Karlthegreat 03:27, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Vootele Rammo

I'm contesting your Quick Deletion of Vootele Rammo's page and notifying you in accordance with policy. I explained my reasoning on that page's talk page and I'd appreciate it if you talked a little more about what makes a player worthy of a page in the Players category (as opposed to Famous Players or Celebrity Players). --Tickenest 23:22, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

New spambot

If you're around, there's a new spambot that needs to be blocked. I'm playing whack-a-mole with it right now. --Mr Wednesday 21:44, 19 March 2008 (UTC)


We'll miss you. Hope you return soon, but all the best in the mean time!! --Rob184 14:12, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

It's good to take some vacation...

Thank you for you great work! zigdon 13:18, 9 August 2008 (UTC)


I don't know if this is the write way to use the "My talk" function but here goes nothing, and all what I wanted to say is thanks for the advice, I will use it from now on. :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Assim 13:30, 18 September 2008 (UTC)


Hi, can you please migrate Template:Club to aspx? --Mod-Karlthegreat 13:43, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Done. --Jhattara 07:10, 22 September 2008 (UTC)


Hi, can you please unlock these two pages: Bugs and Abbreviations (since both lemmata should point to the singular form and since the lists might need some updates)? I think we can try to unlock them now (and lock them again if vandalism goes forth).--Mod-Karlthegreat 20:35, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Done. --Jhattara 08:13, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Is it possible to unlock language version Catalan Ca/? I'm interested in start translating

Done. --Jhattara 08:05, 13 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I've just been working a bit on the policies and guidelines as I felt this was left on its for a too long time. My goal is to get this settled as very soon as possible. To make a start I've rewritten Hattrick:Notability and adapted it to what is anyway done here since a couple of years. I think it's finished so far (except the sub-articles), but since you've got much more experience here than I do, I think you should have look at it. I've also worked on Hattrick:Consensus. Since I think the latter has to have a higher priority and is the foundation of any decision made here, I think we should first get the second one established as a policy/guideline (in the current or another form). Could you also have a look at that one? Next step would be to get the finished Hattrick:Consensus voted. --Mod-Karlthegreat 21:33, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

We'll vote for the Consensus for the next two weeks. I added a notification to the main page about this. If the vote passes then we look at establishing Notability as a defined policy. --Jhattara 10:34, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Shouldn't the voting be closed by now? :) --EchoMan 16:50, December 3, 2008 (UTC)

Adding Catalan language in main page

I've talked to Mod-Karlthegreat and he told me you can put Català (Catalan in Wiki languages. Is it possible? --Lleida 21:45, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

That same guy had too much free time on his hands and played around with the Main Page and built this: Hattrick:Sandbox/Main Page. Can you have a look at it? Is it possible to take it and thus giving normal contributors the possibility to edit the subpages without your need to interfere for each tiny change? (I think it's also a better way to lock certain parts only in case we suffer from attacks or vandalism)--Mod-Karlthegreat 22:19, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
I changed the main page to use templates. I will protect some of the templates and leave others, e.g. the language versions, open to all editors. --Jhattara 08:57, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Spam filter problem

Hi, I've just got this message when I wanted to save an article:

Spam protection filter

The page you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter. This is probably caused by a link to an external site.

The following text is what triggered our spam filter: cialize

Return to Main Page.

("cialize" with an "s" instead of the "z")

It seems this spam filter (that I've never encountered...) doesn't like "specialized" in its very British form, with an "s". Do you have any button to solve that problem or do I have to rant in Sweden? --Mod-Karlthegreat 19:25, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Player Project

Any comments or feedback would be appreciated. :) Hattrick:HattrickWikiProject_Players --EchoMan 14:38, January 28, 2009 (UTC)


Hi! Can you change MediaWiki:Sidebar and MainPageTheMatch to reflect change of Match_Report into Match_report, and also delete Match_Report and Interwiki/Match_Report when it is done? Also, Mod-KarlTheGreat wanted me to remind you of this : Hattrick_talk:HattrickWikiProject_Policies_and_guidelines#New_rules. Cheers! --EchoMan 18:09, February 2, 2009 (UTC)

Hi! Can you change MediaWiki:Sidebar again, this time so it links to Formation rather than Formations? Cheers! --EchoMan 14:46, March 2, 2009 (UTC)
Done. I left the text at Formations though. --Jhattara 06:56, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Trophy cat

Uhm.. I created Category:Trophy actually to take them all there, since I think using singular is possible, no?--Mod-Karlthegreat 12:46, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

I think that Category:Trophies is better named, when looking at all the other categories in HT-wiki and e.g. Wikipedia. --Jhattara 09:13, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Wiki Fed

I'm trying to see if there is an interest in reviving the old Hattrick Wiki Federation (81554) on HT. Do you think it would be possible to add something about it somewhere on the front page for a few days and see if we can attract some potential members? --EchoMan 16:46, March 5, 2009 (UTC)

Of course it would be possible, but unfortunately the five federation limit plays against this. I for example have all my federation slots full. But if you want to write a notice do so in the Template:MainPageCurrentNews. --Jhattara 07:30, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I realize this. I just want to reach out to as many as possible before the time limit is exeeded, to see if there is interest in such a federation. Thanks for the link. --EchoMan 09:30, March 6, 2009 (UTC)
We actually managed to get 10 members. Hopefully it will last too. :) --EchoMan 07:41, March 31, 2009 (UTC)

Obsolete Information

Hi! Can you have a look at Talk:Achievement_Seeker_Federation and give your valuable feedback? :) --EchoMan 07:41, March 31, 2009 (UTC)

Wiki status

Hey! For a few days now there have been problems with a lot of administrative pages on the wiki, e.g. Special Pages, Recent Changes, Move Page and so on are not accessible from time to time. Do you know how to resolve this? I've sent a message to Tjecken, but I guess HT-Gods doesn't have to read HT-Mail. ;) --EchoMan 07:34, May 7, 2009 (UTC)

No idea. I can try to contact Tjecken myself. --Jhattara 07:11, 8 May 2009 (UTC)


Could you block some of the recent spammers? They've been adding numberous websites on top of many pages this week... And since the recent changes don't work at the moment, it's pretty hard to do something against it. So if you can, just check the history of the pages with "reverted vandalism" as message here: Special:Contributions/Jossie ;) --Jossie 16:34, May 30, 2009 (UTC)


Even though the link does not show, if you log in through that link, the thread will be showed. Is it good enough to restore that link? --Mod-Geek 15:42, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

change of pagina title


I changed my pagina Title again, because my team name is commonly known as Red Star Brussels. In Belgium, team prefixes are often based on the origins of the team, but are not always referred to in common talk or writing. I prefer to keep the standard name thus. Also, i wouldn't want to go change all my other articles that are connected to it again...

I moved the page again (this time correctly) because that is the team's full name. Pages that link to Red Star Brussels still lead to the correct article, so no need to change them. --Jhattara 21:48, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Big red button?

Your bot page mentions a "big red button", but such a button is not in evidence. --Mr_Wednesday 17:59, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Good catch. I removed that sentence from the template. --Jhattara 07:38, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Country data templates

Just curious what you're up to with all of these new templates? I assume it's part of a bigger plan. --Mr_Wednesday 19:11, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
