Why did you remove what I wrote and replace it with someone else's writing from one of the articles???

REMOVING CATEGORIES

Could you please stop deleting the Bouts Categories from the fight pages. Why do you keep removing them? They are there to link that bout with other bouts that occurred during that particular year. Just because you edited that particular page doesn't mean somebody else can't add information to that page without it being deleted by you. Thanks.--Rowdytimothy 17:36, 7 December 2007 (CST)

The Bout Categories are for bouts that occured during that year. It's for ALL bouts, not just significant bouts. How do you determine what a significant bout is? Is it a championship bout? Who determines which bouts are significant and which bouts aren't? A significant bout to me might not be a significant bout to someone else and vice versa. If you look at the pages, the headline on each page is Fight summaries and factoids of boxing matches held in 1993 or 2000 or 2007, whichever year it is. That's why ALL bouts are included.--Rowdytimothy 22:24, 7 December 2007 (CST)

Please don't remove the categories, as Rowdytimothy states, as the category states it is for all bouts for which factoids are given. The purpose of a category is to link similar articles so that a user can research further on a given subject.--Matt Tegen 23:09, 7 December 2007 (CST)

In the Lee- Vera #1276361, The total blows make it look like Lee was winning easily, which he was not. The total Events Per Round, which you deleted, shows that Vera was dominating and hence the reason for the TKO. If you don't like the EPR, as explained in Wikipedia, at least leave it for others to use, as an attempt to continually expand our understanding of the sport.--Drdatabox 16:45, 22 March 2008 (EDT)

Miranda vs. Banks

Nice work on the Edison Miranda vs. David Banks page, photo and all. --Ric 18:57, 12 January 2008 (CST)

Jr./Sr.

In page titles including the abbreviation "jr" or "sr" we conventionally use the form "Jr." or "Sr." without a preceding comma.--Emaster 14:28, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

When moving pages to titles including "Jr." you still put a preceding comma before "Jr.", which does not agree with the convention.--Emaster 14:29, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Events Per Round

Why don't you read in Wikipedia about Events Per Round before you so cavalierly strike it. I started counting blows in 1967, but they have only become popular in recent years. I have entered blows in boxrec only to have them cut. After correspondence and my urging, with Bob Canobbio of Compubox, they usually enter blows into boxrec. If they don't, I do it for them. In a similar manner, Events should be a part of the permanent record of boxing. Boxrec.com is that common record. Don't keep information from people. The contribution of Data Boxing to boxing research is discussed in IBRO Journal, March 12, 2008, Issue 97, pp. 62-65.(This is the Journal of the International Boxing Research Organization.)

Opinionated Commentary

Please refrain from writing commentary that contains your personal opinion. For example, in the Hopkins vs Calzaghe page, you state "Calzaghe wasn't hurt badly." That is your opinion and it may or may not be accurate. Others, including myself, believe he was shaken up pretty good. Calzaghe himself stated he was hurt. I'm not going to edit your posts, but I hope you will do the right thing and edit-out any commentary that isn't fact. Thanks. - Miagi66

They are a legitimate piece of data. Why do you arbitrarily delete them? You are now in a unique position of authority. Why don't you take your position more seriously?
