Has Nai done anything to combat this? Coming up to Footy season Quinton. That means my input will all of a sudden increase !!


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!)

Don't worry about it - I'm trying not to be the spelling police - I only change things when I have already spotted something that needs changing. Heh, I've already had a few people point out my own mis-spellings to me on the wiki, so I'm the last one to pick fault.
At this stage its pretty unlikely I'll make it to Elizabeth - I rarely get there even when it is good weather! Dirko will probably be there - I know he's keen to catch up and put a face to the name.

Gordon Armstrong

just sprayed my computer screen with coffee.....

I invited Laurie Armstrong to footy the other week (who also came to that BBQ) and his brother Gordon Armstrong also came - now I keep getting the two Gordans mixed up!

On Fire Fella !

Ranga is on FIRE !!!!!

Good stuff. Hopefully Grant has scanned the stuff I gave him last week, and we can add that in.

  • Yeah had a crack last night. I enjoy watching the three of us putting it together ;)

I especially made sure the Craig McRae page was done. You may want to add the family photos....

Welcome message

Um it's the "The boys of the GFC" not "The Boys from the Bay" unless they've changed the club song :) Dirko 02:14, 10 June 2010 (UTC)


I have added comments to photo's where I think a description is needed. As for the reference stuff, yep will add this in as well Dirko 01:15, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Layout of player pages

Had a bit of a play around with Chris Duthy page. I think it looks a lot better with the pic on the left, Bio in the centre, stats/etc box on left and text underneath. I'm gonna do the pics like this from now on and change the ones done so hopefully you like it too ;) Dirko 11:52, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

LOL looks a bit like another site, but yeh happy with that layout. Not so sure abut the multicolour headings for other teams. One I did I just reversed the gold and black (Kerley?) and it looked OK. Especially if they have more than two teams it would look a bit technicolour otherwise. 12:08, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
I'm undecided now LOL, miy missus reckons they both look OK so she's confused me. And yep I agree wit the technicolour. Will slowly change those back to something a bit different ie the Black n Gold version Dirko 12:12, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
OK, Plan B ... leave both formats up and tomorrow or Thursday I throw the doors open (gulp) and we can get feedback from the great unwashed? Or is that just asking for trouble and we make a decision and stick to it.
I DO like the format you made as there are times we will have nice action photos like the one for Gibbsy on Blueseum and they wont look much good squashed into a little box. Ranga 12:22, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

OK, umm, check out Cornesy's player page LOL....

It was Mickan's page that I did the reverse colour heading on for Other (he has plenty of "Other" club things). Ranga 01:19, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Main Page & Photo's

Hi Quentin,

You've done a massive job with the photo's so far. The main page is looking good too. What I thought would be good is if we give the site a name like Blueseum, or Demonwiki (Melbourne.

I thought "Tigers of Old" Historical wiki of the Glenelg Football Club. see here User:Dirko

See what you think !

Ciao Dirko 22:32, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Great minds think alike, and apparently so do we. I know that the SL Wiki is not the most attractive name. In fact I would love to drop the name "wiki" altogether as it does not mean anything to a lot of people. Only problem I see with Tigers of Old is that we are also about Tigers of Now. Thinking hats required ... I smell a competition here! Ranga 22:36, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
I've changed it LOL. The boys of the GFC from the opening of the traditional club song. Looks and sound OK IMO. Dirko 02:02, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
I was going to discuss further today at the game, but just in brief - the original idea was to be the new "Entrance" to Snouts Louts rather than just seeing Thumby when you go to hence it said SNOUTS LOUTS as the main thing. We need to work out if we are using it for that, or just as a stand-alone wiki (so why have the Match Report and upcoming game then?). So much to think about ... my head hurts.

Locker Room

Hi Pudgey,

I have left a message on the main page in the Locker Room. Check it out and have a look on what I did and you'll get the drift.




Hi Mr Ranga

Great stuff with the articles on 1921. Just a thought, as that theme will be continued on for all seasons, would it be more beneficial to have another area for them.

I can just see when in ten years time, we reach the 70's etc, and we have access to heaps and heaps of stuff, those reports etc will dominate the game scores etc.

Perhaps a section call "Seasons: In word"

and then have 1921, with all the articles, 1922 etc and so forth.

And then when we get pictures enabled start another one "Seasons: In Pictures" etc.


Dirko 06:34, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes I also thought along those lines when I was typing that info in. I have started looking at some old papers at the State Library and I can assure you that there is no way we will get a game-by-game record on here short of a work-for-the-dole project (joke).
So I am thinking that each season will probably get a summary of what happened and if we know of any significant events/games then we can summarise those. 1921 obviously would get a bit extra summary compared to some, it being the first League year. For individual matches we can use the system you have started with those 2006 match reports. One thing that bothers me with using a name like 06.05.2006 is that dates dont list very well in any summary page like the [[Category: Match Reports]]. If we want to change the format of the page names it would be best to do it now before we go too far.
Oh and I have a couple of match reports from 1921 to type up once I decipher the shocking quality print you get from microfische.
Ranga 07:53, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

OK, I think I am willing to do the work for the dole thing LOL. What would be good would to have a season homepage similar to this [1] .Which is basically what we have now. Then when you click on a year you get [2]. From that you can then enter the match results and reports similar to how they have done it. You could then categorise it all back to the year in this case 1995. If you look at the page also there is a "backlink" function. Now that is good !

You can then have a separate "Articles" section with sub pages by the Year. Same for images (with probably more catogories)

We're a long way off, so it's nice to dream !!

Cheers Dirko 09:37, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

You mean the menu at the bottom? Where it says -
1995 Pre-Season
Round: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22
Qualifying Final | Preliminary Final | The Grand Final
Playing List | Debuts | Stats Leaders | Brownlow Votes | B&F Votes | | Season Image Gallery | Records
Big Stories: Winning streaks | The "Hyundai" Years | Minor Premiers | Premiership Droughts | Premierships | Grand Final Gallery | 1995 Team Photos
1994 | 1996
I think we could slowly implement that. Debuts should be possible with the help of Ecky. Big Stories is pretty much what I said - any special stories/matches. I think any Finals match we should attempt to get a Match report for (State Library here comes the work-for-the-dole crew). Votes will far harder as I have not yet begun to look into what (if any) records we have of votes for Magarey and/or GFC B&F.

Ranga 11:26, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Nope, go to the Blueseum page and look at the top right of the screen, you'll see the "Backlink" drop down menu, next to the print function. Very Cool. I use it a bit. But it's something that is a ways off.

As for the menu at the bottom, that too is a must. I have done such in the Locker Room, so you can just go from Number 5 to say Number 42, without having to go back to the originating page.

Need a few more blokes in here contributing though !!

70s newspaper articles/ photos

Hey Ranga, Ive got a lot of newspaper articles from dad and i know he has a big colour poster of all the players from 1976, if you want any of them i can scan them just let me know. Plenty of newspaper articles from the 73 grand final too :-) Shane 23:53, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
