Re Pictures

Hey there, no need to say thanks, you have obviously put in a great deal of work to get the wiki where it is so far; I am pleased if I can help out a little. I had actually been toying with the idea of starting a historical GFC site myself, until I came across the wiki. Have uploaded some club player portraits from 1999, have a few more bits and peices, will upload when I get the chance.



Hi mate.

Thanks for the work you have been doing on the wiki, much appreciated. The photos you have uploaded are excellent.

Let us know if you have any queries, but you seem to be going great guns.

Typos and Spelling

Hi mate.

I am probably the last one that should attempt to correct spelling as my own is pretty atrocious. When I do edit spelling it is because I have spotted something that is a typo and while in edit mode I look at any other things that are underlined in red. To explain that, I use Firefox browser and have a dictionary Add-on with it that checks spelling using Australian English. Anything that the browser thinks is mis-spelt is underlined in red.

I notice you changed back a couple of my edits in the 1983 article. I changed "winless" but can agree that it is sometimes used. "Aweful" however is not correct. Feel free to double check, but there is no "e" in awful.

Hi Ranga,

I swear I didn't even realise that you had made those changes, if I had I would have left them. I am the world's worst speller and if I realised you had made changes I would have left them! I just thought that I was correcting something I had written originally. I appreciate you spell checking what I have written and trust me I would be the last to get into a petty debate about spelling and grammer! What I will start doing is writing what I am going to submit in Word so that I can run a spell check before I submit it.

Cheers. --Bays34738586 09:47, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

PS you going to Elizabeth on Saturday? If so i will come over and say hello (I think I can guess which one is you in those photos from the 1985 reunion dinner!)


Re your question: "Anyone know how to "embed" youtube rather then just have a link (might look better?"

WikiMedia deliberately does not embed external images (although you can link to them). The only way to display videos would be to upload them. I am not sure what video formats are used, but even if we did work it out, the size of video files is usually at least 6Mb per minute, so we would be using up a lot of disk space on the site host. Unless Nai (our benefactor) specifically says its OK, I am reluctant to start using up that much space in a hurry. Ranga 11:17, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Fair call Ranga. --Bays34738586 11:24, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Recent Spam

Thanks for your help with blanking any spam you spot.

Just to clue you in, I have messaged Nai about the spam problem we are having. He often takes a few days to get onto things, but once he does I guess we will be approving new Editors before they can add anything. That should stop our spam pretty much.

Ranga (aka Quentin)

No worries Quentin, approving editors sounds like a good solution. Mick.
