Rico, When creating a new, or updating an old, boxer page, please insert the "boxer code" if the page does not already have it. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the Help page. The boxer code will automatically generate the boxer's details (alias, date and place of birth, etc.). You will need to add the manager's and trainer's name manually, however. Format-wise, please place the boxer code directly beneath the image code. (Earlier I had accidentally put this message in your "User" page, rather than the preferred "Talk" section. Ooops!) --Ric 17:44, 4 Jan 2006 (CST)

Who are you?

Are you a fan of Undernet Boxing? Judging from your recent additions, you seem to be. Just curious. --GreyJ 19:07, 5 Jan 2006 (CST)

Applause, Applause

Rico: You have caught on to the formatting just wonderfully. You are doing marvelous work. --Ric 00:53, 7 Jan 2006 (CST)


I notice that the regular wikipedia, has a policy of providing the source or copyright owner of there photos. I'm not a legal expert, so I don't know what we are exposing our self to, as far as risk goes. However, I think there policy is something we should start to adhere to.--Matt Tegen 12:35, 5 Apr 2006 (CDT)

Spider Rico, can you put the source of the photo on the photos, page and not on the actual boxers page. This is consistent with how I see Wikipedia handling this. Thanks.--Matt Tegen 18:41, 1 May 2006 (CDT)

Bad Titles

"Bad titles" are caused by using "foreign" (non-English) characters in the person's name over in the BoxRec database. It messes with the search engine. If you are a BoxRec Editor too, try changing the boxer's name, editing the foreign character. Or try "moving" the "Bad Title" Wiki page to a new name. --Ric 10:58, 6 May 2006 (CDT)

Look for the "move" command above the "Bad Title" page, and move the page to the name of the boxer. See if you can do that. --Ric 09:18, 9 May 2006 (CDT)
