Lithuania[edit]

Well, getting featured is a bit too complicated - I'd suggest a Good Article nomination first. Ensuring everything is properly referenced is a start, there are some sentences without notes... igordebraga 16:32, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

@Igordebraga: Well yeah, GA nomination probably is a better way to start with. Which sentences you have in mind? Maybe I could find something in Lithuanian about these sentences? But I think the referencing is already fine? -- Pofka (talk) 17:35, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

For instance, that sentence about the 1993 failure leading to the league creation, most of Cultural depictions, Supporters, and Uniforms and kit suppliers (replacing YouTube would help!), and is there enough data on pre-War games to add the 1930s managers to Coaching staff? igordebraga 00:46, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

@Igordebraga: Just added a reference about the league creation in 1993 and a few more to the "Cultural depictions" section. Why YouTube is an unsuitable source for referencing? I think the video recording of the chant is the best way to prove it is really performed. Moreover, these recordings were done by an official Viasat reporter, not by some random fan. There hardly is any articles about the chants, so it would be difficult to replace these... The uniforms section was written just by looking at the pictures from these years. For example, even the article itself has the pictures of the 1937-1939 uniforms. Do extra references really are required here? -- Pofka (talk) 18:25, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Well, there's something that needs to be done to at least acknowledge the source - I did that myself. The uniforms, it's just that NBA articles seek to source text on this. igordebraga 21:42, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

I've just split a lot of stuff towards a Basketball in Lithuania article, and some of the sources might help the overall improvement. If you're willing to take a look... igordebraga 19:59, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

@Igordebraga: I think that's a great idea! Sadly, I currently have absolutely no time in helping you with it. =/ -- Pofka (talk) 06:18, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Sad to hear it. But just telling you I drew some things from Basketball in Greece, if you ever need inspiration regarding that new article. igordebraga 17:01, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

I feel for you and Lietuva's defeat. Yesterday I had to suffer through a blowout like yours (plus a heartbreaking close game, and another that at least could give a bronze). Hope your basketball recovers fast - my country's has been in shambles for a while. And while on Wikipedia, why don't you erase from this talk page the bot reminders of errors and deleted media? igordebraga 16:50, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

@Igordebraga: Just cleaned it up. =D It's okey, the Olympics were not very successful, but the 4-year period indeed was. Valančiūnas was playing without head this year, but we won two silvers medals in European championships and the 4th place in the World Cup. Coach Kazlauskas is still praised in the media after these three terrible games and everyone hopes that he will remain 4 more years with the national team. Following European championship could remind EuroBasket 2003 if Kazlauskas stays, everyone will be healthy, especially Motiejūnas, Valančiūnas will find his head and maybe Kleiza will return to basketball after recovering from injuries. As Lithuanians often say: "trečias kartas nemeluoja" (third time do not lie). =D -- Pofka (talk) 05:25, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
