NBA infobox[edit]

Hi, there. Thanks for fixing the NBA infobox. I just want to let you know that draft pick parameter is now made for the overall pick number instead of the pick number of a particular draft round. Previously, the infobox doesn't make that distinction and that causes some problems. So, it would be great if you can help go through all the player articles and make sure that the draft pick number is correct. Thanks and keep up the good work.—Chris!c/t 22:33, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Is there a reason why you remove the statistics and basketball reference link from the infobox like you did here? The statistics is actually good info to have in the infobox.—Chris!c/t 03:31, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry about that, I tought the career stats would be covered in the future on the table that's supposed to be in every article. Should I put the stats even for players who appeared in only one game? Let me know and I'll do it right away.Xaviersc (talk) 13:51, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes, the career stats is supposed to be covered on the stat table in the future. But unless the table is already included, I think it is good to have the statistics in the infobox. This is actually a good question because I didn't think of this before.—Chris!c/t 21:52, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Infobox discussion[edit]

We are having another discussion on the formatting info on the infobox at Template talk:Infobox NBA biography#Establishing consensus. Since you help update our infobox, I just want to let you know.—Chris!c/t 19:02, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Templates to display NBA years[edit]

Hi, just to let you know that we now have several year-displaying templates that make editing easier. For NBA seasons, {{nbay|2008}} generates 2008–09. For specific team seasons, {{nbats|2008|LAL}} generates 2008–09. For NBA Finals, {{nbafy|2008}} generates 2008. For All-Star Games, {{nasg|2008}} generates 2008.—Chris!c/t 01:15, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! I've been using them, they're really helpful! Xaviersc (talk) 21:30, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Working Man's Barnstar.png The Working Man's Barnstar
I've noticed your efforts in converting and updating the NBA/ABA players' infoboxes (a number of the articles I've created have been updated by you). Doing this is time-consuming and repetitive, but the improvements it creates is well worth the effort. A barnstar is in order here. Jrcla2 (talk) 17:49, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

New infobox thing[edit]

Hey, I see you've been adding a lot of infoboxes to the basketball articles. Just FYI, there's been a little change to the infobox. The "Career [foo] statistics" line is no longer tied to the "League" parameter. There is now a stats_league parameter that lets you edit the statistics line directly. (See this edit.) This change to the infobox allows more flexibility in cases where a player appeared in leagues beyond the NBA and ABA.

Anyway, just thought I'd let you know. Zagalejo^^^ 06:33, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Georgi Glouchkov[edit]

Just curious, what source were you using for Glouchkov's career history? Zagalejo^^^ 17:35, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

His profile in the ACB website. The rest (previous to 1984–1985) was already there. Xaviersc (talk) 03:08, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Ah, OK. Thanks! Zagalejo^^^ 22:14, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Tagging NBA articles/templates with Basketball[edit]

Hey just a heads up that tagging articles and templates (such as Template:2011–12 Atlanta Hawks season game log) is not within the scope of WP:Basketball. That WikiProject is specific to international basketball, high school basketball, and basketball not found within the auspices of WikiProject College Basketball or WP:NBA. It's double-dipping when NBA templates are also clogging up Basketball categories. Thank you. Jrcla2 (talk) 23:13, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Olympic events[edit]

Please note that articles are not allowed to be left sitting in redlinked (i.e. non-existent) categories. If you want to use a category such as Category:Equestrian at the 1952 Summer Olympics on articles about equestrian events at the Olympics, you need to either create the category immediately, or temporarily apply a higher-level category (e.g. Category:1952 Summer Olympics) instead of the missing equestrian one — but if the category is a redlink you cannot just walk away from the article and leave it that way, because then it gets picked up as an uncategorized article and creates unnecessary additional work for other people. Thanks. Bearcat (talk) 22:31, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Athletics at the 1968 Summer Olympics – Men's 110 metres hurdles[edit]

This is an automated message from VWBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Athletics at the 1968 Summer Olympics – Men's 110 metres hurdles, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Athletics at the 1968 Summer Olympics – Men's 110 metres hurdles. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. VWBot (talk) 11:11, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Please reference your new articles.[edit]

Hi there, thank you for making the articles on the individual events are past Olympics, but you must be getting your information from a source, so PLEASE put that source in the article as a reference. It doesn't matter if it's another website, the official IOC reports or a book, just write it down so that we don't have to search ourselves. Thanks, The-Pope (talk) 13:08, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

What years are you doing? so i can do the others and the work will be spread out and repetitive. Dencod16 (talk) 02:05, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

First names for the 1980 French Open mixed doubles[edit]

Via IRC someone disputed a certain first name in the 1980 French Open – Mixed Doubles article. The source doesn't give any first names; how did you come by that information? See also Talk:1980 French Open – Mixed Doubles#First names? Huon (talk) 19:40, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

A page you started (1985 US Open – Men's Doubles) has been reviewed![edit]
