Jose de Paula[edit]

With this edit, you put text in front of a source that didn't support the addition. Please make sure to put text after, preferably with its own proper source. – Muboshgu (talk) 18:43, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Technically ...[edit]

Being DFA'd does not mean your tenure with the team has ended. You are off the 40 man roster. But one of the DFA options is that you are -- within 10 days -- returned to the roster. It is after your DFA option shows you not to be in the organization that it is proper to indicate in the time-span (year x to year y) something other than present at the end. Best. --Epeefleche (talk) 23:25, 2 July 2015 (UTC)


When a player on the minor league page is traded, you can move the section (manually) to the new page. There's no reason to keep the person on the page for an organization they're not in anymore. You just delete it from the old page, put it on the new page, and change the redirect. Also, when a fully notable player is traded, you can remove the {{current sports transaction}} tag, and their old uniform number. – Muboshgu (talk) 00:06, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks yeah I didn't know how to move it or I would have done it my mistake I appreciate the help! Muboshgu (talk) Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 04:42, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

DFA'd players[edit]

When updating the DFA'd guys can you try to keep the Major League Baseball (MLB) link somewhere in the intro? An example would be like what I did with Chris Heisey.--Yankees10 23:54, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Yup no problem thanks Yankees10 Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 23:58, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Guys its kinda silly to change the wording when a player is DFAd... you really should wait till they either get outrighted or released. It's kindof a trivial change that doesnt actually mean anything. Spanneraol (talk) 00:03, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

You're still removing it for some reason.--Yankees10 00:50, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

You still insist on removing it for some reason. Why can you not just leave it there and just add "organization of Major League Baseball (MLB)"?--Yankees10 21:33, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

From now on I am going to put the Major League Baseball (MLB) in the top part of the article but not right after it just doesn't look right considering everyone on a minor league deal just has organization and the MLB is somewhere in the top is that fair Yankees10? Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 21:36, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Ok, give an example because i'm kind of confused.--Yankees10 21:39, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 check out Onelki Garcia. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 21:41, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Yeah that works.--Yankees10 21:44, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Or it could be like Vic Black's "He made his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates"--Yankees10 21:46, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 yeah man I saw you do that so I put that in there for people who didn't have anything after like Danny Muno. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 21:47, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

I just changed the wording a little bit and unklinked the Mets to avoid overlinking.--Yankees10 21:53, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Have they come out and said yet?[edit]

Have they come out and said yet? Allstartrick14 (talk) 17:50, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

NFL infoboxes[edit]

You're not using the * in NFL infoboxes right. It only goes next to the team if the player didn't appear in a game. Brian Tyms and Frank Alexander appeared in games with the teams they were just released from.--Yankees10 00:27, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

NFL updates[edit]

Thanks for updating the NFL cuts. There's gonna be a bunch over the next few days and your edits are going to be very helpful. Like I said last year though don't forget to add the "*Offseason and/or practice squad member only" when you add the *. Thanks.--Yankees10 19:31, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Actually it looks like all you need to do now is add |pastteamsnote = yes under the teams.--Yankees10 19:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Also don't forget to remove the "Active" from the roster status in the infobox and the roster navbox at the bottom.--Yankees10 20:03, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Hidden text message re non-free-image photos[edit]

Ryan, please do not remove the following hidden text message from transclusions of Template:Infobox NFL player: <!-- Only free-content images are allowed for depicting living people -- see [[WP:NONFREE]]. --> This hidden text message is supposed to be included in every instance of an infobox for a still-living current or former player where the image field is not already linked to a free-image photograph. This is intended to reduce the uploading and use of non-free-image photos -- i.e., copyright violations -- in our bio articles for NFL players. Thanks.

Final cuts[edit]

Yup thats final cuts for you. So many transactions. Your edits are very appreciated.--Yankees10 06:15, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Make sure you don't put the * if the player has appeared in games with that team.--Yankees10 21:39, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Zurlon Tipton appeared in games.--Yankees10 00:38, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
As did Cyril Richardson. Why do I have to keep asking you not to add the * if the player appeared in games with that team? I'm very appreciative of all the work you do here but it's getting annoying that I have to keep coming here to remind you not to do this.--Yankees10 21:45, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox NFL player[edit]

Hey, KR -- FYI, this infobox does not require anyone to add "px" to the "image_size" parameter in order to alter the default size infobox photos. In fact, most infoboxes no longer require the added "px" coding for photo-sizing, but the thumb template still does. In the case of the NFL player box, most of us have been deleting the "px" coding along with the other deprecated template parameters that are no longer in use. I thought you should know.
