You are new here and obviously do not know the ropes. You attempted to add new items to both the "Punches" and "Glossary" categories, but you did so incorrectly, so your contributions were deleted. What you should have done was first create the new Wiki page--such as one entitled "robbed"--then inserted the category code to the bottom of that page. Read the instructions and guiidelines on the "Help" page to the side of every page here at least once or twice. If you still need help after reading that page over, just ask. Try again and good luck. --Ric 12:20, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

POV

Radam, when writing text about any boxer, please use a completely neutral point of view (POV), which includes using his last name, not first name. Please edit your nice Danny Adams page by replacing "Danny" with "Adams." Thanks. --Ric 20:38, 9 September 2007 (CDT)

Boxer Code

Great contributions! Remember, however, when creating a boxer page, to insert the "boxer code" at the very top. The boxer code is the number (which you can see at the top of any boxer's page, assuming you created the page coming from the BoxRec database), such as Human:255431. Put that number between tags, like this: <boxer>255431</boxer>

The boxer code will automatically insert the name, and all the other stats, from the BoxRec database. However, you have to manually enter the names of managers and trainers. Try it on the Greg Adams page you just edited.

You can get other instructions and help here. --Ric 18:22, 10 September 2007 (CDT) --Matt Tegen 23:52, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Preview Changes

I see that you often make what seems like dozens of edits on the same page daily. In one edit, you changed the word "boxer" in the boxer code to something else, saved your edit, saw that it was the wrong thing to do, then switched it back to "boxer." Thus, it appears to me that you do not know about the "Show preview" button at the bottom of each edit window. It appears that you may just click the "save page" button instead after every little edit you make--thereby making a saved edit almost every other minute. But the preview button allows you to see what a proposed edit looks like before it actually gets saved into the database. Perhaps you should consider using that button more often than you are doing. --Ric 22:17, 12 September 2007 (CDT)

Insert Boxer Code

When creating a boxer page, remember to insert the "boxer code" at the very top of the page. The boxer code is the number that you can see at the top of any boxer's page, assuming you created the page coming from the BoxRec database. Put that number between tags, like this: <boxer>12345</boxer>

The boxer code will automatically insert the name, and all the other stats, from the BoxRec database. However, you have to manually enter the names of managers and trainers, other text, and images. Try it on the this page you just edited. --Ric 20:47, 1 October 2007 (CDT)

Remember to enter the backslash "/" at the end of the boxer code. Otherwise, it doesn't show the text you write after.--Matt Tegen 15:50, 4 October 2007 (CDT)

Category

When you add a category to a fight or a boxer could you please not use the backslash (/). It is not the proper way. Instead of the backslash (/) use this |. If you looked at how the other categories are entered and you preview your work before saving, you would have realized that it was incorrect. Thanks.--Rowdytimothy 17:43, 8 February 2008 (CST)

Greg Adams

Try to keep the Greg Adams page to an encyclopedic format. If you want to write an article on him with your opinion, or with the long medical tragedy, a poem, etc., please write it elsewhere.--Matt Tegen 23:52, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Birthplaces of Brian Viloria and Bob Foster

Radam, you state that Brian Viloria was born in Cebu, Philippines on his talk page whereas BoxRec and the main wikipedia article about him say it was Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

You also state that Bob Foster was born in Lubbock, Texas on his talk page whereas the main wikipedia article about him says it was Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.

Can you provide any sources to support your claims so that possibly false statements can be corrected?--Emaster 21:02, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
