Style guide

Density of information

Try to always consider that an infobox exists to support an article and provide a quick synopsis of important facts. This becomes vital when considering that the amount of space available within an infobox is significantly less than that available outside of it.

Wikilinking

As per the manual of style entry on linking, years should not be linked as they do not provide much benefit to the user. However, date of birth should be linked to enable date preferences to work (better still, use {{birth date and age}} for living people and {{birth date}} for the deceased). Linking of other entries is to be discouraged as most of these links will present themselves in the article's introduction; linking them in the infobox adds clutter and inhibits the speedy retrieval of facts.

You must link the {{{website}}} parameter

Season year format

In order to keep the infobox from ballooning laterally, it is wise to keep date formats as compact as possible. Highly accurate dates are more useful in the article itself. Typically editors will use the 2005-2006 incarnation but when very pressed for space, 05–06 may be useful.

If the start or end date of a players time at a club is unknown they should be aligned with the other years.

Club name

Where applicable, use only the location name of the team under the headings of "professional clubs" and "representative teams". That is, avoid using Sydney Roosters', but rather use Sydney. Also, in the event of a change of club name during the time in which the player served that club, use the name under which they joined. For example, Brad Fittler's infobox will show that he played for Sydney City rather than Sydney or Eastern Suburbs.

However, under "club name", use the full name of the club. For example, Craig Fitzgibbon currently plays for the Sydney Roosters rather than Sydney as will show below it. This naming system is in place for a number of reasons, the most important being consistency of information across all player entries on Wikipedia.

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583). Be cautious about using these if the person is still living, per WP:DOB.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate
  • deathplace
  • extended-address
  • family-name
  • fn (required)
  • given-name
  • honorific-prefix
  • honorific-suffix
  • label
  • locality
  • n
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • role
  • url
  • vcard

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.
