From Hattrick

User pages[edit]

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)


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[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

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...[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

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)
