The article has nothing on it, firstly it was not founded in 1888, it was founded in 1944. Unless there is any real evidence, or an article is constructed. It should be deleted. Govvy (talk) 07:25, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

I certainly agree the article has issues, and needs fixing to focus on the 1940s team - however no reason in that not to mention that there was briefly an 1880s team of the same name - which is well documented in the references, even if not itself notable. Nfitz (talk) 11:41, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Daniel Levy

Hi. I followed Spurs a little when Klinsmann played for them and they're fun to watch nowadays but I wouldn't consider myself a fan. I prefer Arsenal with Özil and Mertesacker. ;-) Anyhow, I'll help out with fighting vandalism on Mr Levy's page. Regards, (talk) 17:02, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 4

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Potters Bar, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Barnet. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

September 2016

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be repeatedly reverting or undoing other editors' contributions at Barnet F.C.. Although this may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is known as "edit warring" and is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, as it often creates animosity between editors. Instead of reverting, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to lose editing privileges. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, and violating the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a loss of editing privileges. Thank you.
