- I took the liberty of fixing your user page. You needed two squiggles on either side :) --DNL 20:30, 14 March 2006 (EST)
For your next article, please use wiki formatting. For players and team names, use brackets like [[Pedro Martinez]]. You can even use nicknames with wiki-formatting, like this: [[Philadelphia Phillies|Phillies]] or [[Alex Rodriguez|A-Rod]].

I think it would be a good idea to explain how you pitch a curveball on your dictionary definition. It is something that I want to know having read your description, and I think it would fill out the definition more. Alex Holowczak
- Ok fair enough, I assumed that a curveball was thrown in one certain way to get the effect. Alex Holowczak
Updates on Triple Crown and Standings
Thanks for you help with this. It's a great way to make the whole site better. --DNL 07:27, 26 July 2006 (EST)
Thanks for the Edit
Thank you for editing the title of the post for me. http://www.armchairgm.com/mwiki/index.php?title=Positive_Influence_or_Positively_Influenced I realized that it was mis-spelled after I posted it.Erooster 00:13, 29 July 2006 (EST)
You can do it if you want. I was waiting to see if anybody else was going to vote, but I think you're right, nobody else is going to vote. Consider the voting closed. - Davis21wylie 09:49, 29 July 2006 (EST)
hey thanks for the referral, i checked out the site and it looks pretty good. i will look into signing up. ----Ufgators
- hey, no problem. if you need me to edit anything just drop me a note. what did you mean "sidebar"? is it the thing that says team info, stadium type, etc? because if thats the case, its easy to explain. they just have to either write in bold with the three apostrophes, or use the [[ ]] bars to link something. i know how to edit it, but i dont know how to put the sidebar up. is there a code? Ufgators
- okay, thanks. if you don't know how to edit it, i'll tell ya. its the same way you'd go about editing an article or something of that nature. after each category, type in the info. like, if it says "founder"or something like that, just write the founders name in bold, which can be done by putting three of these in front and back: '''founders name''' . to make a link, like to a players name, you'd do it like this: [[Brett Favre]]. By the way, i saw you had trouble putting in the code, so when you want to put in a wiki code or something, but don't want the actual thing to come up, type: insert code here . it wont show up, so click "edit"to see the code i used. it should say "no wiki". i believe xinoph wrote you something about that, too.
- hey i gotta go out now, but i fixed it. the code you used worked, but it didnt allow for editing. try it now: Invesco Field click edit. it should work. if not, send me another message. ill talk to you later. take care, Ufgators
Football on the Quiz
Sorry, I saw your reply before my computer failed terminally. Now, armed with a new machine, I can answer your question. There is not football in this season that finishes, so I can't do a football quiz until February next year. So the NFL this year, will be February 2007's quiz. I.e. After the Super Bowl. 18.104.22.168 10:56, 18 August 2006 (EST)

re: MLB HoF
No... only retired players... however, retirement is not an issue... the player could of retired last year - he'll still be eligible for the the ArmchairGM HoF...
I agree that both players you mentioned should be in the Hall of Fame. However, I really wanted to get things going and thought that though no one would argue about allowed retired players in, some people would argue about allowing non-retired players in and I really wanted to get things going. Note that this is only the first stage of voting and we will need to discuss these players' eligibilities later as a whole community. --Drpatriot
An idea involving AGMVC
In Britain, at the end of the year, we have a programme called "Sports Personality of the Year". It is basically a review of the sporting year, plus awards for various things (see below). Using AGMVC, Armchair could have their own, based on US Sports. I have no idea how AGMVC Templates work, so I was hoping we could work together on it.
In December, people would vote using AGMVC in the normal way to vote for their top 10 in each award. After Christmas, but before New Year, we would publish the winners. (It would be a good idea to close the voting at Christmas).
The awards used that I thought could be replicated are:-
- US Sports Personality of the Year (US Player, Sports MVP of the year, plus good guy off the field, so no Bonds, Bengal etc.)
- Overseas Sports Personality of the Year (Non-US Player, same as US things to bare in mind)
- Team of the Year (same as Sports Personality of the Year)
- Career Award (Retired Sportsman with same criteria as the first award)
- Friday Fryer of the Year (A spin-off of Christof's Friday idea)
All of the awards would have to be voted for at the same time. The period of December would be good to use for voting.
What do you think of the idea? (I know that this is a November-December idea, but I thought there was no harm in mentioning it.)

- The idea is that they are in season. Britain has that problem with "soccer", rugby and other sports. The awards are usually based on a team that achieved great success in one thing or another during the year. E.g. Pittsburgh Steelers because they won the Super Bowl with a useless team, or something like that. There is plenty of time to refine it though. I think it would work because last time NBA/NHL/MLB were all in-season there were loads of people here. Alex Holowczak 23:57, 21 August 2006 (EST)
