Knighthawks roster[edit]

Hi...I noticed you changed the names on the Rochester Knighthawks page to be "First Last" rather than "Last, First" like on all the other team pages. Why? --MrBoo (talk, contribs) 21:41, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

I don't have a problem with having the names reversed, it's just that it's inconsistent with the other pages. However, the rosters are pretty much all out-of-date anyway, so once each team releases their rosters, those pages will need to be updated anyway, so it's not a big deal.
The templates we're using for the rosters were originally created for soccer, so there's no transition position there. I'll look and see if it can be added. --MrBoo (talk, contribs) 16:02, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Three-letter country codes[edit]

Just in case you’re not or no longer watching Talk:Comparison of IOC, FIFA, and ISO 3166 country codes, would you be interested in extending its scope (and therefore changing its title)? — Christoph Päper 10:27, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

How so? Paploo (talk) 22:01, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

I saw the short discussion on th Comparison page. The purpose of this list was to compare the IOC and FIFA codes while using the ISO 3166 codes as a standard that carried all independant countries and territories. There are other lists of international sport organizations that overlap these lists (i.e. the Commonwealth Games, in which the Falkland Islands and St. Helena, amongst other small territories, compete against Australia, Canada, and other athletically stronger nations.) If you want to make a more extensive chart of county codes, be my guest. I think a larger chart just would not have the same purpose, so they can be co-existive. --- Paploo (talk) 22:14, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
