Re: UAD[edit]

Long time no speak, Kevin. Hope all is well with you. In regards to the suffixes; as far as I am aware, the issue with the {{cyclingteamlist}} template created by Sander.v.Ginkel in March 2015 appears to be the inability for suffixes to be used. I know BaldBoris and Severo (shall ping for further words) had voiced their concerns on teamlist talkpage, but I don't think anything had resulted further from this. The suffixes in the ct templates predate my involvement in such templating, but I do see from the Cannondale ct page history when it was created in 2009 by Theilert, there was no blank line. Only "a" and "b". I think it may have been deemed duplication especially with the active current name at the top of the ct; that's how I have always interpreted since I've started updating such templates.

@Cs-wolves: Fine thanks, but probably better for spending less time on Wiki.
I was halfway through putting a message on the Cycling Project talkpage about the problem of cyclingteamlist when I realised you had solved it. Maybe we should move the discussion there to widen it.
I would consider duplication to be a very minor drawback, compared to the expectation that every editor using the UAD template for the rest of the year remember the short lived Abu Dhabi name. Kevin McE (talk) 22:23, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
Good to hear. I must admit, I have been trying to wean my way off here, but the Wikidata debate fuelled a lot of fire to me, so I have been picking it up again ever so slightly. Who knows what may occur in the coming months though - but as you say, it may be for the best for spending less time on here.
It had only came to my light, with the ongoing review in Sander's articles - mainly stub creations, that are undergoing a community review, that several members of the Cycling project have been looking into. While looking through the archives for the above discussion, I have noted previous discussions about the cyclingteamlist template, and also the suffixes here between September 2015 and January 2016 and also here in July 2016.
