Add history label[edit]

must be added the label history such as the template:infobox sport club. Thanks (| label13 = Team history | data13 = ) --Odythal (talk) 11:55, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

I don't think so. – PeeJay 18:46, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
It is useful for the clubs that have changed name several times in their history. For example see Toronto Phantoms or West Texas Roughnecks and many others that use the template:Infobox sports team --Odythal (talk) 19:07, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
Oh, well if you'd said that to begin with instead of just saying IT MUST BE ADDED, I might not have said no so quickly. Seems logical to me. – PeeJay 19:14, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Could someone add it--Odythal (talk) 14:19, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

We should probably wait until some more people have had a chance to contribute to this conversation. Someone might be able to see a negative we've missed. – PeeJay 16:55, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Toronto Phantoms
Full name New York CityHawks (1997–1998)
New England Sea Wolves (1999–2000)
Toronto Phantoms (2001–2002)
I'm not sure this is necessary and am concerned it might just add clutter to the infobox. Perhaps it would be better to use an existing parameter for this, perhaps club full name. See an example to the right. The name parameter could also be altered to change from "Full name" to just "Name" if there was a "multiple_names=yes" argument. Number 57 18:52, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

The label: full name is in the top of the infobox and doesn't look nice. In the exising templates are correctly positioned. Other examples for the use of template:Infobox Basketball club: Ikaros Kallitheas B.C., AEL BC --Odythal (talk) 14:41, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

I disagree, I think the top of the infobox is probably the best place for multiple names to be outlined. Number 57 15:59, 21 April 2015 (UTC)


The label history is also useful to mention former clubs that have merged with the current club. See also PAE Kerkyra. The label full name is not the most suitable --Odythal (talk) 18:52, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

League position[edit]

"position — The league and position to which season refers."

If club wasn't promoted or relegated, why repeat the league's name in the box? SLBedit (talk) 19:19, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

I see your point. I usually put "X Superleague" in the league line, and then in the following line the season with a proper wikilink to that season, and just its place, exemple 5th. FkpCascais (talk) 19:28, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
However, it is quite often the case where the league name is repeated, as in FK Čukarički exemple. This is your question, right? FkpCascais (talk) 19:30, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes, and my opinion is that league name should not be repeated. SLBedit (talk) 19:43, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
For clarity, I think it should. The infobox is for an at-a-glance overview of the club. When the reader wants to know what the club did last season, they should be able to find out at a glance, without having to look at the current season row as well. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 19:55, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
The position is near to the league's name. SLBedit (talk) 20:39, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Not the point. It's easier for a reader to read the information all together on a single line than it is for them to read it in two parts on two lines, whether that second line is nearby or not. Why make it harder for them? cheers, Struway2 (talk) 20:49, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't find it harder to read but you made a good point. SLBedit (talk) 21:00, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
It should not be mentioned as it is a row above. Kante4 (talk) 12:23, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't see a point in adding it, when the league didn't change. But it doesn't really matter. Wouldn't revert either way. -Koppapa (talk) 14:04, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

"Current season" parameter[edit]

Based on this discussion about current parameter; should we link to a season which has not started? SLBedit (talk) 15:12, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

I think a convenient switch date would be the point at which the league's fixtures are released, or the point at which the club has confirmed fixtures (e.g. friendlies) lined up. Number 57 15:52, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
