Funny Letters[edit]

To create the accents, you hold down the <Alt> key (there's one on either side of the space bar) and type in the three-digit code for the accent on the keyboard (please note that the number keys at the top of the keyboard will not work for this). Try this, and if you can't get it to work, at least you have all the accents in one place to copy from. :-)

I've explained it on Phillipe's talk page. - Approximately (talk) 23:34, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

I think it just depends if someone checks their email quickly after the question comes in when it's an easier trivia question. Sometimes by the time I see the question, they already have the next question up. I usually don't get the harder ones. - --Mischa (talk) 17:52, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Good question. And you got the Dan Wilson before anyone else. I had a couple ideas for themes but haven't suggested them; with my batting average on these questions, I doubt they'd take my suggestions. - Mischa (talk) 21:18, 13 May 2019 (UTC)


Jeff, Thanks for all your clean-up of uncategorized pages. Unglamorous but important work. --Philippe (talk) 15:03, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Should the college tournaments pages have another category, either Category:Big East Conference, or Category:Postseason college tournaments or something like that? - Mischa (talk) 16:24, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

You are our local college baseball expert. Do you know when Bill Creighton took over as head coach at Schenectady County Community College? Thanks! Alexsautographs (talk) 16:49, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Thanks again. Alexsautographs (talk) 12:23, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

Jewish players[edit]

I was thinking about that as well. I have no problem with not doing anything. I was just curious. I guess the reason why there's no list here already is to avoid that potential can of worms. Cmcgill (talk) 22:46, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

RE: School links ... my pleasure. I haven't done a super thorough job of it, but as I come across them, I fix them. I've been doing it for a few years so most of the major schools, at least, are fixed. Alexsautographs (talk) 23:58, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

With your comment about checking US newspapers on Talk:Luis Fierro, I wondered - do any US papers list rosters for the 1959 Pan American Games? We're missing several countries. The US has hosted so few international tournaments. - Mischa (talk) 13:25, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

The others are complete as far as I know, but Brazil is missing most first names. - Mischa (talk) 12:08, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

The 1959 Pan Am Games box scores would be great if you want to email them. - Mischa (talk) 13:12, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

There's an "email this user" option when you're on someone's user page (on the left-hand menu). I tried sending you a message using that. Let me know if you didn't get it - Mischa (talk) 12:08, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

Please comment on BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/1990 Montreal Expos and BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/2010 European Cup. We're not ready for a new featured article yet, I think, but it's good to have some in reserve. - Mischa (talk) 16:14, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi Jeff, yes the same thing is happening to me. Some edits need 3-4 attempts to save. I solved the links problem by clearing the cookies off my browser. SwatCat71(talk) 30th August 2020

Thanks for finding Estrada's coaching stint. It seemed odd that he only played a few games two years in a row for the same team. - Mischa (talk) 14:45, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Would the Estrada baseball card be public domain? We have no images for the current batch of Template Talk: Did You Know prospects. - Mischa (talk) 00:49, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

Negro League pages[edit]

See my comment here [1]. Your input would be welcome. Philippe (talk) 12:45, 26 June 2021 (UTC)

The city pages also should be added with the new minor league teams, if you have the time. Ex. add ACL White Sox to Phoenix, AZ - Mischa (talk) 13:19, 8 July 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for all the updates on the minor league templates! - Mischa (talk) 16:18, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

I think I'm up to date for the list of minor league teams on which Hall of famers played. I've been adding these systematically for the past decade or so, whenever anyone is elected to Cooperstown, but I may have missed someone at some point. Philippe (talk) 13:18, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
