Some bugs in the encyclopaedia

John...........How do you upload a picture?

John, there are some bugs/issues here. Maybe you want to/can sort them out:

The All pages special lists some pages which do not exist (any more), with all page titles containing foreign characters except for two: Boxer:Umberto Magliocchetti (Maggi):123978 (Look here.) and Steve Conway vs. Mihaly Kotai (1st. meeting) (Look here.).

This user page behaves oddly (especially on my watchlist). Maybe because of the renaming of the page.

Incumbent succession boxes do not display dashes properly on pages on which a boxer code is inserted above an incumbent succession box. On Miguel Angel Cotto's page, for instance, the following box looks different than on this page as Cotto's boxer code has been inserted above the box on that page.

Sorry but I don't know where to begin with this, the software was not written by me, I shall have a go at fixing it but don't hold your breath JohnShep 01:32, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Of course, I just want to point out this stuff.--Emaster 01:55, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

O'Neil Bell's boxer page can't be accessed and this page seems to be discarded.

BTW: Should I actually contact somebody else in terms of this kind of stuff? Who would it be?--Emaster 16:44, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Primi Carnera Edits

John, your recent edit of the Primo Carnera page created some of those odd square characters that seem to pop up here and there. --Ric 16:21, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Greatest Ever

John, I don't see what the big deal is. it's listed under awards and recognition. it's not really different from some of the other awards i've listed before.

Chicago Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions

what happened to category, tried to change Chicago Golden Gloves Champions to Chicago Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions. Regards, Bert

Yes, where should I look. Bert

Angel Espada

Thanks for catching that. I get these countless e-mailed image scans from Ted on an almost daily basis. I often cannot keep up with all the ones he sends. And he sometimes mis-identifies the boxer and I don't always catch it. This one should have been obvious to me. Thanks.--Ric 16:28, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Richard Savala Edits


Thank you for your edits of the Richard Savala bio. I will talk to Austin about your comments regarding his style of writing and I also will make sure Dan Cuoco knows how to make similar edits, in particular adding pictures, to fighters bios. BTW, Richard Savala is very happy about the way his record looks now. He gave me additional pictures to insert, but I think that given their nature (his family now) I will refrain from adding them. I understand that you are trying to maintain an objective record. I will also send a quick reply to Ric on the same topic.

Image of Tex Jordan

Hi John. Before he died, "Uncle Tex" like to keep us kids entertained at family gatherings with stories of his past as a boxer and "Hollywood star". We never believed anything he said, but it looks like at least the boxing part had some truth. Can I ask where you got the picture of Tex? Ronnotel 16:17, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Image of Joe Rosella

Hi John, How are you doing?

I stumbled upon an old picture of my grandfather ( and would like to see if I can get a better quality version of it :)

I see that the User that added it (Nonoman) was blocked by you. Is there a way for me to contact him?

Thanks in advance for your time. Wes
