References in NBA-related articles[edit]

Your edits like this are starting to get annoying. Firstly, there's no need to use NBA or ESPN sources everywhere. You should know by now that primary sources (NBA) shouldn't be blindly used in every edit you make. And substituting other sources, for example, The Washington Post, with you preferred source (mostly ESPN) is not helping either. In addition, changing the format of the reference to your preference is also not good and that doesn't really assume good faith as it makes an impression that you're trying to "own" (no pun intended) every source that you edit. I'm not trying to degrade your edits, but there are limits. It's like someone painting their room in green and you coming changing it to different shade of that color. Please keep that in mind and remember that other users have different view than you, but that doesn't mean that your view is correct. Feel free to reply or ignore this message as I'm not trying to get into an argument over this, but remember it. – Sabbatino (talk) 15:37, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

@Sabbatino: I don't want to be on bad terms with you, Sabbatino, and I'll apologize now for, I guess, belittling you. Regarding the citation style: I just don't understand why some format references in random order. I style them how they are actually presented after saving i.e. author, link/title, website/publisher (work), date, accessdate, language. The way you added the reference, to me, makes no sense. Yes it comes out the same, but why have the accessdate before the date? Regarding the Reuters ref, yes I didn't *need* to change it, but I see "reuters" and go: "what kind of website is that? What makes this website so special/reliable?" A much more reliable avenue would be the 76ers themselves, which is what I did. What made you pick of all websites? and ESPN are such staple resources – you can't go wrong with them. My point previously is that, many websites simply use Associated Press articles, meaning the content of the article isn't an original piece from that website/outlet. To me, it seems you use a lot of random websites i.e. why did you specifically decide to use this usatoday ref for Julius Randle but then this abc ref for Isaiah Thomas? The exact same reports from AP are used by ESPN and The beauty of ESPN is that more can be provided for readers because there are box score links, play-by-play etc. Out of good faith, I'll reinsert your Reuters ref at Embiid. I'll also concede that ESPN's recap didn't state the "career-high 14 rebounds", hence why I didn't add it to Embiid's article myself earlier. 16:28, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Try the Cite web template (or any other) in the editing window and you'll see why references are being formatted in one way or another. At least for me it's easier and faster as it fills all needed fields (most of the time). Regarding the Reuters source – Reuters is a well known news agency in the world so I don't really see the problem with it. As for Randle's of Thomas' sources is that when I hear something like "career-high 50 points" or smilar, I just search it on Google using those terms. Of course, we see different search results based on geographic location (you being in your country and me being in mine) and that's why I sometimes use "strange" sources. While NBA (official) and ESPN might work for NBA-related articles, it's different for other U.S.-based leagues (NHL, NFL, MLB, and others). Some of them rarely write about players' achievements or other record-related things. You're not supposed to reinsert my source to Embiid's article as I just wanted to make a point and I see that you understood what I meant. Take care. – Sabbatino (talk) 18:35, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Rachael Sporn[edit]

Hello - I just converted the infobox for Rachael Sporn. One piece of information I was unable to find was her start year with the Adelaide Lightning. Do you have access to this information? If you have it, would you mind updating? Thanks Rikster2 (talk) 15:00, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

@Rikster2: There's not much out there but her LinkedIn page gave me 1993. A subsequent google search of "Rachael Sporn lightning 1993" does bring up some other sources such as this, so 1993 seems accurate. It seems she joined the team for their debut season.

What are you talking about[edit]

my edits are constructive (talk) 19:44, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Deliberately adding false information into Okaro White's article such as "often considered the best basketball player of all time" is not what I would consider constructive or sincere. DaHuzyBru (talk) 00:05, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Isiah Victor article[edit]

DaHuzyBru, I know you have an affinity for Australian NBL player articles. I was wondering if you'd consider adding Isiah Victor to your to-do list? In addition to playing for a couple of NBL teams, he was also a two-timer on the All-NBA Development League Team, and he has a corresponding article on the Italian Wikipedia already. I think he's retired from basketball, which makes writing about him easier. My queue for articles I want to write is so long that Victor won't make the cut anytime soon, but he's clearly notable and would eliminate some red links on a couple articles. Thoughts? Jrcla2 (talk)

@Jrcla2: I'll hopefully get around to it. It looks doable, having had a look at his career history. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 12:01, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

2017 WSBL season[edit]

May I ask why you felt the need to amend a perfectly well structured article? It was not lacking in sources, structure or accuracy. Your layout is far less well rounded and I do not understand why you amended it. Also, your newly added Teams section is completely unnecessary and also lacking execution in the layout, I will be removing it, it is very poor choice of means to deliver such information. I will amend a few of the layouts but will take your reference points on board. Regards. Njr65984 (talk)

@Njr65984: I thought I'd try something new with that teams section, with this season preview being at my disposal. I am trying to expand the SBL on Wikipedia; make it better and bolded. I thought adding in-depth info such as Ins and Outs could be useful, different and cool. But obviously, you disagree. "May I ask why you felt the need to amend a perfectly well structured article? It was not lacking in sources, structure or accuracy." Well it was lacking in sources actually. Referencing merely the SBL website is not what I would consider a well sourced article. The WSBL season article does not need to be the same as your WNBL articles, which I know you are quite fond of. I have broadened my SBL-based editing on Wikipedia - perhaps you can see my point of view. DaHuzyBru (talk) 03:21, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
