Remember to Insert Fight Code

When creating a fight page, remember to add the "fight code" at the very top. The fight code is the fight number (which you can see at the top of any fight page) contained within "fight" code tags, like this: <fight>12345</fight>

The fight code will automatically insert the names of the boxers, result, location, and date. You can then add other text and images. You can get other instructions and help here. --Ric 10:47, 6 April 2007 (CDT)

Opinions vs. Facts

You asked me: "Ric, I have come across articles on the Boxing Encyclopedia (i.e. for Eubank vs. Watson II) that express subjective opinions as facts. What is the policy of the editors toward expressing opinions as indesputed facts in an article? And what is the policy toward the editing of someone else's entry that contains such errors?"

Answer: I guess we deal with those issues on a case-by-case basis. For the one example you gave, perhaps you should note your concerns and suggested edits in the "Talk" section of that page, and get a dialogue going. Perhaps then you and other Editors who are most knowledgeable about that fight and era can reach a concensus. (Later edit: I see now that is exactly what you had done before I replied to your message to me, so you "beat me to the punch.") --Ric 19:04, 17 April 2007 (CDT)
