User talk:Jhattara/Archive 2006
Man we have a serieus saboteur at work. I see you have reverted quite some pages. He seems to change ip all the time. What is it that he inserts in those pages anyway? I can't see a thing untill I click edit, then a whole list of links and stuff appears. The poor bastard can't feed his children he claims. Do you know what it is?
Hi; I've changed the names of the Hattrick:Flag templates and also i've moved the content of "Hattrick:National team templates" to that page. I'm changing the links to get the "National team templates" deletable, but there is one under your user space (Special:Whatlinkshere?target=Hattrick:National_team_templates). --carlesmu 16:22, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
- Yes, I know that I have to change the pages using them. I expect to change them in the next days. --carlesmu 06:06, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
I didn't make the reverts because I think soccer should be used. To me, the terms are used interchangably on a global scale. I respect those in Sweden (what we call their country in America) by calling it by the local name of Sverige when I'm talking on a global forum, and I think that others should do the same. If an American writes soccer, especially when talking about an American who plays soccer (the Mod-Lytic page), then he should be able to without someone going through and replacing every instance of soccer with football. That is why I went through and made the reverts, because the original author chose to use soccer. -- Jake 19:04, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
He's got a point Jhattara. Europeans prefer to use the term football because in Europe football means one thing & one thing only, however we have to accept that to users in the US (& in other areas of the world where there are competing codes of football) then soccer may be a more culturally pertinent term of reference.It serves to differentiate it from other forms of football such as gridiron (or aussie rules).

I'd like to clarify that I don't intend to set a standard where every reference to the sport is changed to soccer or anything; I'm making the point that the original editor's terms should be kept. If the editor makes up a word or says the wrong thing (can instead of can't, should instead of will, etc) then it can be changed. But I think that if the original editor writes soccer, it should be left as soccer; and if the original editor writes football, it should be left as football. Or futbol. Or footie. -- Jake 16:32, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
