Welcome to WikiProject Cue sports. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of cue sports (pool, snooker and billiards) and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Guidelines[edit]

Authoring & editing[edit]

Style and naming conventions[edit]

All articles and categories within the scope of this WikiProject should adhere to WP:Manual of Style (cue sports) style and naming convention guideline. The super-short version:

  • The game is "nine-ball" (likewise eight-ball, one-pocket, etc.) — not "9-ball". (Exception: "blackball" is fully compounded, almost universally)
  • Non-compound-noun game names are not hyphenated (bank pool, carom billiards, English billiards, straight rail)
  • The ball is "the 9 ball" (likewise the 15 ball, the cue ball, the solid balls, etc.) — not "the 9-ball" or "the nine ball".
  • Scores and rankings are given as numbers, per long-standing sports statistics tradition — "1st place", "3–2 victory", "ranked number 45".
  • Other numbers should be spelled out: "a six ball game-ending run on the 9 ball in the fourth round of the match, to finish for a 5th place finish", or "the number twelve shakebottle pill was right next to the 9 ball, and I don't know why it was there because we were playing nine-ball; maybe it's because we'd already had seven beers each and had been playing for four hours".
  • Don't use (gramatically optional) compound adjective hyphenation with numbers, as it is too easily confused with a game name — not "a nine-ball run", even if you would write "a highly-skilled player".

Please see the actual guideline for more details and the rationale for this level of consistency control; it genuinely is important for article intelligibility, especially for non-native English speakers.

Notability[edit]

Please read and follow the WikiProject Cue sports notability recommendations and advice on compliance with Wikipedia Policies and Guidelines (This is not an Official Wikipedia Notability Guideline, but following it may well save your article from deletion.) The super-short version:

  • If he/she/it isn't important, don't make an article (or section) on that topic.
  • Don't pollute articles with games you and your friends made up, rules variants peculiar to your home town, novelty games, gimmick equipment, spam or non-neutral statements.
  • There's no need to split out into an article everything that possibly could be an article; no one needs a four sentence "article" about cue tip chalk.

Use the Glossary to make links[edit]

Articles within the scope of this Wikiproject will inevitably be using terms of art specific to the cue sports. A good resource for making links to words that are not self-explanatory for the uninitiated is the Glossary of cue sports terms. In order to make such links, a special template is used, as follows:

{{Cuegloss|Word or phrase you are linking, exactly as its heading appears in glossary|word or phrase you want to display}}

Thus, if one wanted to wikify "apex ball", the following markup would be employed: {{Cuegloss|Apex|apex ball}} (because the entry for "apex ball" in the Glossary is "Apex"), which when saved would look like this: apex ball.

Using the glossary to define terms will greatly reduce redundant "definitionitis" in article after article, enable newcomers to the topic to find consensus-edited definitions in a central location, and keep old hands from becoming bored to tears reading things they already know. However, try to avoid overloading articles with specialized terms; people should not have to use the glossary several times per paragraph to understand an article.

Naming and disambiguation conventions[edit]

Shortcuts:

When it is necessary to disambiguate player names, use "John Q. Public (pool player)" or "John Q. Public (snooker player)" for either of those particular disciplines, or "John Q. Public (billiards player)" for all others. If the player is notable for more than one discipline, use "John Q. Public (billiards player)", unless the player was mostly notable for either pool or snooker. If the person was notable both as a player and for some other role in the field, use the "player" disambiguation unless the subject was most notable for a non-player role, e.g. "John Q. Public (pool referee)" or "John Q. Public (billiards promoter)". If the subject was more notable for something else than a cue sport but was also at least marginally notable as a cue sports personage, use the field he or she was more notable for, e.g. John Hennigan (poker player). Regardless, do not use truncated forms such as "John Q. Public (billiards)", "John Q. Public (pool)" or "John Q. Public (snooker)"; per Wikipedia:Naming conventions (people), a player is a person (a player) not a billiard, a pool or a snooker.

For non-biographical articles, use "(billiards)" (e.g. Pocket (billiards)), as a disambiguator unless something more specific is warranted, in which case use "(snooker)" or "(pool)". There will be no need to disambiguate further, as in "(carom billiards)", except under the most unusual of circumstances, which should probably be revisited for some other solution anyway, such as an article merge.

Article "templates"[edit]

To the extent possible, all cue sports articles should be based on the WikiProject Cue sports basic article template or a more specific one [forthcoming] (That said, these templates are only suggestions, not an official Wikipedia Guidlines. The templates are [will be] here to help you focus and to get you going, especially if you aren't yet certain what to write or in what order, or where to begin. But mainly, we just want you to write articles!)

Cue sports conceptual hierarchy[edit]

Cue sports articles and categories are arranged in relation to each other by way of the following hierarchy. This hierarchy is not perfect in every way for every conceptual purpose, but is entirely adequate for our purposes here. Note that some items appear more than once; see in-section footnotes for explanations. See "Major articles" and "Major categories" for extant actual major articles and categories.

Key:
[Bracketed] items show relationships to other sports probably not within the scope of this WikiProject.
Italics indicate a relationship that may be relevant to articles (e.g., History sections), but are not be represented in categoryspace.
Bold indicates the five main divisions of cue sports for Wikipedia article & category purposes (plus a bolded entry for the overarching topic itself).
  • [Ancient non-team lawn games]
  • [Modern non-team lawn games (lawn bowling, horseshoes, golf, bocce, croquet, etc.)]
  • [Non-cued indoor adaptations of non-team lawn games (bowling, shuffleboard, curling, etc.)]*1
  • Cue sports (i.e. cued indoor adaptations of non-team lawn games)
  • Ancestral early variants using a mace instead of a modern cue*2
  • Obstacle billiards
  • Bar billiards
  • Bumper pool
  • Bagatelle
  • (other variants)
  • Carom (carambole, pocketless) billiards*3
  • Pocket billiards*4
  • [Non-cue tabletop ball(s)-and-obstacles games (pachinko, pinball, etc.)]
  • Carom (carambole, pocketless) billiards*3
  • Straight rail
  • Balkline games
  • Three-cushion
  • English billiards*5
  • (other variants)
  • Pocket billiards*4
  • Pool*6
  • Nine-ball
  • Seven-ball
  • Ten-ball
  • Eight-ball
  • Blackball
  • One-pocket
  • Bank pool
  • Finger pool*1 (?? or is this actually a carom game ??)
  • (other variants)
  • English billiards*5
  • Snooker*7
  • (other variants)
  • Snooker*7
  • [Ancient board games]
  • [Non-cued disk-flicking games]
  • Table-top cue games
  • Carrom (cued variants)
  • Novuss
  • Crokinole (cued variants)

*1 Finger pool, though technically a non-cue game is a direct descendant of billiards, and uses otherwise identical equipment.
*2 To be covered in Cue sports#History; not enough can be said (and cited) about this to warrant a separate article. On the slim chance that this does spawn enough articles for a category, that category should be at the same level as carom, obstacle, pocket and snooker under cue sports.
*3 Carambole games evolved from pre-bagatelle, croquet-like tabletop obstacle games. Within categoryspace and for most purposes in articlespace it is treated as one of the four main divisions of cuesports.
*4 Pocket billiards began as a variant of obstacle billiards.
*5 English billiards is a hybrid carom/pocket game, and we treat it as a variant of both equally. Same goes for Cowboy (billiards) and Bottle pool.
*6 Though not one of the four main subcategorizations of cue sports for our purposes, pool is obviously one of the top subjects and will likely represent the bulk of the articles in the cue sports articlespace. It is not ranked with snooker at the top level under cue sports, because it does not have the consistency and monolithic subculture that snooker does, it is a blanket term for a class of games played with pool equipment (eight-ball, nine-ball, etc.), and the terms "pocket billiards" and "pool" are used as synonyms in the industry.
*7 Historically and technically, snooker is a variant of pocket billiards. However, as an organized sport and subculture it has a life of its own and does not significantly overlap with any other form of cuesports, even the closely-related pool and English billiards.

Avoid creating unnecessary articles[edit]

For instance, unless someone has a wealth of reliably sourced information about the composition, history, importance, differences between different kinds, alternatives to, etc., etc., of cue chalk, then we almost certainly do not need to create a Chalk (cue sports) article.

Do split articles that are getting unwieldy[edit]

The entire topic of cue sports aside from snooker was once represented mostly by a single long article at Billiards (now Cue sport). It was sensibly broken up into sub-articles and that work is still ongoing. So, for example if the eight-ball article becomes unwieldy and there is enough sourced material available about blackball, consider splitting the article into two. Note: This was actually done in March 2007, making the example particularly salient.

Don't unnecessarily duplicate lots of informaton[edit]

Articles about games or specific classes of games, for example, do not need to reiterate the entire history of cue sports, just the history of that particular variant. Likewise, we do not need wholesale reiterations of basic concepts, such as racking, lagging, etc. Use the {{Cuegloss}} template as much as possible (without creating redundant wikilinks in the same article; only the original introduction of a term needs such a wikilink in most cases.)

Any articles created (or existing and expanded at least five-fold) within the previous five days that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, have a minimum of 1,500 characters of prose (ignoring infoboxes, categories, references, lists, tables etc.), don't have any dispute templates on them, and cite their sources, should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Wikipedia Main Page. Note that articles developed in a subpage and later moved to the mainspace are considered new as of the date of the move.

Newly discovered (formerly miscategorized) stubs Pictogram voting comment.svg[edit]

Unsourced bios of living people, subject to deletion Stop hand nuvola.svg[edit]

It is the highest priority to add at least two reliable, independent non-trivial sources to any articles that appear here (updated daily by a bot):

There are no unreferenced BLPs tagged by Template:WikiProject Cue sports.

There are no unreferenced BLPs tagged by Template:WikiProject Snooker.

Other unsourced stubs and articles in danger of deletion Stop hand nuvola.svg[edit]

Consider it a high priority to add at least one reliable source to each of these articles (properly – use <ref name="something-unique">{{Cite web| DETAILS HERE}}</ref> to provide source details and provide references for specific facts, inline in the article) and then remove it from the list. See "Newly discovered articles" list above for more.

Project Resources[edit]

Templates[edit]

Fill-in-the-blanks default articles[edit]

Talk page banners[edit]

The project banner, {{WikiProject Cue sports}}, should be placed above any less specific ones (e.g. for WikiProject Biography, WikiProject Japan, etc.). The best way to use it is to just copy-paste the appropriate code block below, and modify the parts in italics.


Code {{WikiProject Cue sports|class=Stub|importance=Low|needs-image=yes}}

Usage On talk pages of non-bio cue sports articles (other than snooker articles — for those, use {{WikiProject Snooker}} instead). The values shown are defaults for typical new articles. In some cases, another project's banner should be above ours. E.g., if it's a film, the {{WikiProject Films}} banner should be first. The DEFAULTSORT must come after all project banners and such (but before any cleanup categories) or it won't work. Please do include it, as it helps sort articles in our internal categories, instead of having them all under "T" for "Talk:..."
Code {{WikiProjectBannerShell|blp=yes|1=
 
{{WikiProject Cue sports|class=Stub|importance=Low}}
 {{WPBiography|listas=FamilyName, GivenName
  |sports-work-group=yes |living=yes

{{Reqphoto|cue sports people}}
{{DEFAULTSORT:Familyname, GivenName}}

Appearance As above, but with additional features. A demo of it is on the project sandbox talk page; (It cannot be displayed here because some of the templates involved will not display properly on a non-talk page.)
Usage On talk pages of biographical cue sports articles (other than snooker articles — use {{WikiProject Snooker}} for those instead). The values shown are defaults for typical new articles. Remove |blp=yes and change |living=yes to read no if deceased. The DEFAULTSORT must come after all project banners and such (but before any cleanup categories) or it won't work. Please do include it, as it helps sort articles in our internal categories, instead of having them all under "T" for "Talk:..." Please also use the DEFAULTSORT in the article too, immediately above the first category, and then you won't need to do any "|Familyname, Givenname" stuff after the category names. Note that |needs-photo-yes= is not added to our banner; the special {{Reqphoto}} call will take care of this for us (but it is still used with {{WPBiography}}). The {{Find sources}} template works best with a singular keyword, such as "billiard" or "pool", and there can be more than one:
{{Find sources|FirstName(s) LastName|billiard}}<br />{{Find sources|FirstName LastName|pool}}
Additional instances of {{find sources}} can be used for alternative names.

Stubs[edit]

Put stub tags at very end of page, after categories and language transwikis, with two blank lines before them; this will prevent them running up against the nav box when the page renders.

Code What it looks like Where to use
{{Cue-sports-stub}} On stub articles related to cue sports (except if snooker-related — use {{Snooker-stub}} instead.)
{{Cue-sports-bio-stub}} On stub articles related to cue sports players and non-player personalities (except if snooker-related — use {{Snooker-bio-stub}} instead or pool-related — use {{Pool-bio-stub}} )
{{Pool-bio-stub}} On stub articles related to pool (pocket billiards) players and non-player personalities

Inline in article text[edit]

Convenient time-savers[edit]

  • {{Cuegloss|Entry to link to|text to link from}} — Used for convenient wikilinking of a term in an article to the appropriate #-linkable entry in the Glossary of cue sports terms without having to type such a long wikilink name. Please do not "subst:" this template. Example usage: {{Cuegloss|Break|break shot}} is the equivalent of [[Glossary of cue sports terms#Break|break shot]].
  • =={{subst:Cue sports heading}}== — Used to quickly create section headings for cue sports in the "year in sports" articles (e.g. 1965 in sports). This template should be subst'd.
  • Flag templates (with and without country names/abbreviations) for tournament results tables, champions lists, etc., are available from WikiProject Flag Template, and are much easier to use than [[image:Filename.svg|size|etc.]] [[Country Name]] manual coding. Please review WP:FLAGCRUFT about avoiding overuse and abuse of these templates (it is not an official guideline yet, but it probably will be).

Reference citation shortcuts[edit]

  • {{Shamos 1999}} - used inside <ref name="Shamos 1999"></ref> to cite Mike Shamos's The New Illustrated Billiards Encyclopedia without having to manually fill in {{Cite book}}; takes page numbers (with "p." or "pp.") as semi-optional parameter. Example: Blah blah blah.<ref name="Shamos1999">{{Shamos1999|accessdate=2014-04-17|pp. 123-125}}</ref>
  • There are a bunch more, for Stein & Rubino's encyclopedia, and for various pool/billiards periodicals, at Category:Cue sports source templates.

Tournament charts[edit]

Brackets[edit]

Results charts[edit]

Current events[edit]

These warn readers that article may be updated frequently as results come in:

  • {{Current sport|sport=cue sports|event=three-cushion tournament}} - a hatnote for the article on an ongoing tournaments or the like, using "three-cushion tournament" as an example:
  • {{Current sport-related|sport=cue sports|2014 WPA World Nine-ball Championship}} – a message box for other articles (e.g. competitor bios) that may be affected by what happens at the ongoing event; second parameter is the name of the event article, using 2014 WPA World Nine-ball Championship as an example:

As the links in these templates suggest, any such event should be added to Portal:Current events/Sports.

Admin[edit]

  • {{Category redirect}} - put at top of categories slated for rename, deletion or merging (subst and edit as needed, if target category does not exist yet).

To sign on as a project member, simply add your name to the list below, and feel free to tell us about your relevant interests, focus, editing so far, etc.

Getting started[edit]

As a member of WikiProject Cue sports, it is requested that you watchlist at least the following pages:

  • Wikipedia:WikiProject Cue sports - if the project members do not pay attention to changes at the project page, especially its talk page, effective collaboration will be nearly impossible and the project would eventually fail.
  • Wikipedia:WikiProject Cue sports/to do - the project's to-do list, one of our most vital pages
  • Cue sport - our main article, frequently subject to vandalism and nonsense edits that (historically) have sometimes taken hours or even an entire day to be fixed
  • One or more of the core sub-articles, such as Pocket billiards, Carom billiards, Billiard balls, Billiards table, Glossary of cue sports terms, etc. - these are sometimes subject to vandalism and vanity edits
  • One or more specific game articles, such as Nine-ball, Eight-ball, Three-cushion billiards, etc. (see list toward end of Cue sport) - unsourced junk edits are often made to these articles
  • One or more player articles of your choice that you'd like to "adopt" as a guardian against vandalism, PoV-pushing, etc.

Keeping in touch with the rest of the team via the project pages, and keeping an occasional eye on core articles will go a long way to strengthening the project and protecting the articles. Thank you for your collaboration!

Please also either put one of the project's userboxes or "[[Category:WikiProject Cue sports participants]]" on your user page or one of its subpages.

If you feel like creating a new, sourced article, please see our lists of needed articles: WP:CUEGAMES, WP:CUEBIOS, WP:CUEEVENTS, WP:CUEORGS and WP:CUEMISC.

PS: You can save typing time and get to this project page via a shortcut, WP:CUE, and to the talk page here via another one, WT:CUE.
