Collegiate Rugby Championships
Hey, thanks for your reply and advice about the 2012 CRC page on my user page. I went ahead and moved it to my talk page. Let's post any further discussion there. I checked around your contributions and noticed that you've done a lot of work about the CRCs. You did a really nice job in creating the Collegiate Rugby Championship page. I've recently given myself a mini-project where I'm trying create/improve the pages on the various CRCs, and make them uniform and inclusive. Would you be interested in collaborating with me on this?

Barry, nice work on creating the pools for the 2012 CRC. I've been a little busy, and don't have any experience creating tables on Wikipedia, so good job taking the initiative.
One thing I've noticed that I think we should work on is that the hyperlinks to various team pages are inconsistent across the various CRC pages. For example, on this section of the 2012 CRC page and on its listing on the main CRC page, "Notre Dame" links to Notre Dame Fighting Irish. However, on this section of the 2012 CRC page, "Notre Dame" links to Notre Dame Rugby Football Club. I propose that for the sake of accuracy and consistency, we create a definitive list of links to all CRC teams, linking as close to info on the rugby page as possible. i.e. link to a page on the school rugby team (if it exists), then the rugby section on the school's athletics page (if it exists), the athletics page itself (if it exists), and finally the university page. How about the list on the main CRC page can serve as the reference list, and once we go through and fix it we can modify all the links on the other pages accordingly. Or is there maybe some template that we can create for this? Tell me what you think.
Also, I noticed on the 2010 CRC, you used the same citation multiple times. When doing this, you want to make a ref name for that citation. See Wikipedia:Citation_templates#Using_the_same_footnote_multiple_times for a guide. And don't worry about making the mistake- I just figured it out myself two weeks ago :D.

- Wall Screamer - thanks for the feedback on 2012 CRC page, next I'll probably add an Infobox to the page. I have no idea how to create tables either, so I just copied the tables from the 2011 page, pasted the tables into the 2012 page, and then edited the tables to make them current. I agree completely with your suggestions re improving hyperlinks, so let's work on those. I will also try to work on my citations, which I know is a weak point of mine.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Culture of the United States, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page United States national soccer team (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
Barryjjoyce, in this edit do you know which article(s) you took the refnames "b02001", "PEPT3race08", and "PEPT4HL" from? I'm assuming you took the content from the Americans article. Next time you add ref names, please check to see if the article has refs cited with the refnames. If it doesn't, then you need to copy the actual citation info for the first instance of that ref, not just the refname tags. Thanks - M0rphzone (talk) 05:20, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
