PK draws[edit]

Where does it say that a "match that went to PK counts as a draw officially"? I can't find any reference to this online. --Oneforfortytwo (talk) 00:26, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

See https://twitter.com/ussoccer_wnt/status/798021032791535616 for example. For official statistics purposes, penalty shootouts count as a draw. Mightytotems (talk) 08:06, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Women's Football / Soccer Task Force News: August 2017


Should the women's football task force become WikiProject: WOSO?

Sam Kerr playing against USWNT 2012.jpg

According to an op-ed in the recent Signpost, some editors think task forces and subgroups are dying in 2017.

What do you think about forming our own WikiProject separate from WP:FOOTY? There's an on-going discussion of the potential pros and cons on the task force talk page. Input is welcome.

Recent developments

New initiatives have been created for:

  • FA WSL (England's top-division league)
  • NCAA (American university teams, conferences, etc.)
  • W-League (Australia's top-division league)
Ongoing tournaments
Current and upcoming seasons for top-division leagues
Did you know?

While WP:FPL lists only two women's top-division leagues as notable due to its "fully professional" criteria, did you know you can create an article on any player in any league as long as the references meet WP:GNG guidelines? Make sure to tag the new article talk page with: {{WP Women's sport|footy=yes}}.

Have some new articles in mind or see some that need improvement? Add them to the Open Tasks page if you'd like and other editors may be able to help. Need tips, assistance, or resources from other WOSO editors? Leave a message on the task force talk page.

Thank you for your continued contributions to articles related to women's football / soccer (WOSO)!

Chicago Red Stars[edit]

Hi, may i ask you why did you kept Rosie White and removed Miller and Boyles. According to this all three players were acquired by Red Stars. I am just trying to understand i hope you Forgive me, my English isn't strong, thank you --Mojackjutaily (talk) 22:38, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Of course! Rosie White was a contracted player with Boston Breakers, so if selected she would be immediately added to the roster. Whereas Miller and Boyles are 2018 draft picks who are not signed to a contract yet; Chicago only selected their NWSL rights. If/when they are signed to an NWSL contract by Chicago, then they will be added to the roster. Mightytotems (talk) 08:49, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
now i understand, so we have to remove all 2018 draft picks from the teams, thank you.--Mojackjutaily (talk) 12:19, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited NWSL Player Allocation, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Jane Campbell, Taylor Smith and Rebecca Quinn (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:24, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello WOSO editors! A few initiatives have been started with an emphasis on making more WOSO links blue (similar to the work that WikiProject Women in Red does) and filling in the gaps within various league, team, and player, etc. articles.

If you're interested in collaborating with others to make more links blue, take a look at the initiatives listed in the box below. Sign up at the bottom of an initiative page and help grow the lists, add potential references, resources, and create the articles ... or create your own initiative.

Did you know ...

WP:GNG takes precedence over WP:NFOOTY (which only includes the players in 1 active women's league)? Often times there is enough media coverage that meets WP:GNG or other notability guidelines. For more information, see WP:WOSO#Notability and be sure to tag the new article talk page with: {{WP Women's sport|footy=yes}}
