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)

Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Baltic)[edit]

Hi. I see you are listed as a member of a WikiProject of a Baltic state. I was wondering if anybody who actively works on Estonian, Lithuanian or Latvian articles, would be interested in launching your own Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Baltic), based on the Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic) and Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea would be to try to bring about 1000 article improvements and creations on this region as an enjoyable challenge and potentially things like National Contests with prizes. If you'd be interested and think it's something you might regularly contribute to, comment and sign up at Talk:Baltic states. If there is interest we can move this to a project somewhere and set something up, thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:26, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

June 2017[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Lithuania men's national basketball team. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.Sabbatino (talk) 10:14, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

BC Zalgiris[edit]

Please remain civil in your edit summaries and don't add back uncited material (e.g. [1]). You appear to have reverted a large number of my edits and re-added unreferenced, or otherwise questionable material. It does seem that you have subsequently added some references, but it is not acceptable to just add back in uncited information. I will have a further look at your edits when I can. Eldumpo (talk) 18:26, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

  • @Eldumpo: Well you simply deleted almost the whole article without (probably) trying to check the information. If it doesn't (yet) have reference, it doesn't automatically mean that it is incorrect. I am a fan of this team and I read articles about it everyday and I know that the information provided by other Wikipedians here is correct, just without links to Lithuanian articles. I have already added a large number of references to a few sections of the article, however it takes quite a lot of time to find articles which were published 4+ years ago. Still, I will do my best to add as many reference as I can to this article. Sorry for my "hot" reaction, but simply destroying one of the most comprehensive EuroLeague basketball club article doesn't seem very civil to me as well. Your actions here were robotic as you simply deleted unreferenced (BUT CORRECT) information. -- Pofka (talk) 12:57, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
    • Thanks for response. If information is unreferenced it's not possible to know if it's correct or not. A lot of what I saw used questionable grammar and opinionated/weasel words, and any text should be neutral and just convey the basic facts. Also, just because sources may state particular facts it does not mean they should necessarily be added to an article. The article for the club cannot reasonably accommodate huge amounts of reporting on each season, and routine match reports are in any case not the basis of notability. Perhaps there is merit in season articles for the club, where some of the detail (subject to reliable, independent sources etc) can go? Regards. Eldumpo (talk) 13:28, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
      • @Eldumpo: The article mostly was written by other Wikipedians and not by me, and I have also found some ugly mistakes in it, but I think I have already fixed them. As for details of the season... Well, it includes only basic information of the season: short description of playoffs games and facts of signings new members (such information can be found in any National Basketball Association club history section), so I believe it is OK as it does not include too much information about the regular season which is not very notable. -- Pofka (talk) 14:52, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
        • From what I saw there was reams of information about each season for the last 10 or so, which you added back in, though perhaps you've thinned it back a bit? I don't know how it compares with NBA teams but I'd be surprised if they have that much season prose in the main club article. I don't think detailed reports on roster changes has a place in the main club article, and single sources indicating x player has signed for the club is not a basis for that fact going in the overall article, and considering how bloated the article could get in another few seasons. As I said, I haven't looked at the additional changes you've made since reverting my changes, am hoping to get back to the article at some point. Eldumpo (talk) 21:50, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
          • @Eldumpo: NBA clubs previously had such amount of details in their main articles, however they were later split into two articles (f. e. Los Angeles Lakers and History of the Los Angeles Lakers; Miami Heat and History of the Miami Heat) and the second article includes quite a lot of details, so the moment BC Žalgiris gets too bloated - it can be easily split into BC Žalgiris and History of the Žalgiris Kaunas. At the moment I think it can be still kept this way. Keep in mind that NBA clubs articles includes trades which almost doesn't exist in EuroLeague as it is 99% based on signings, and because of it I don't see a problem in mentioning new signings. -- Pofka (talk) 06:38, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

Nomination of Lithuania men's national under-16 and under-17 basketball team for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Lithuania men's national under-16 and under-17 basketball team is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lithuania men's national under-16 and under-17 basketball team until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Schwede66 19:16, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Mockevičius[edit]

Please stop adding Mockevičius to BC Lietuvos rytas, because he has not been signed. Per WikiProject Basketball practice – we add a player to the team when he is officially signed with the team, which means that there must be an official announcement on team's website. All other sources are rumors. You are edit warring and will most likely be reported for such behavior if you continue going against WikiProject's accepted practice. – Sabbatino (talk) 17:06, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

  • @Sabbatino: It is possible that the official website will not publish anything about it because he will not play till the beginning of the new year due to the recovering from the surgery. Mockevičius arrived to Vilnius today and confirmed that he is a part of the team and that his contract (HE DID SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THE TEAM!) will become completely valid after passing the medicine checking this weekend. Source: https://www.delfi.lt/krepsinis/herojai/e-mockevicius-jau-vilniuje-bet-apie-savo-ateiti-lietuvos-ryte-dar-nieko-nezino.d?id=75876855. Text in Lithuanian language: Bet jais užsiimti lietuviui teks dar ilgai. Anot R. Kurtinaičio, Egidijus žaisti galės tik po Naujųjų metų, o likęs reabilitacijos laikotarpis paaiškės savaitgalį – Krepšinis.lt žiniomis, būtent tuomet aukštaūgis atliks medicininę apžiūrą, kurią įveikus įsigalios jo ir LKL bronzos medalininkų sutartis.
First of all, the team will issue an announcement when the deal is finalized. This practice was always used by the WikiProject. Secondly, he did not confirm the signing with the team. That article from Delfi just says that he came to Vilnius and there is no mention about his signing with the team. So stop making up things, because you are not the only person that understands Lithuanian in Wikipedia and by the looks of it, you can not really understand what is written. – Sabbatino (talk) 18:42, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
@Sabbatino: Well... Anot R. Kurtinaičio, Egidijus žaisti galės tik po Naujųjų metų, o likęs reabilitacijos laikotarpis paaiškės savaitgalį – Krepšinis.lt žiniomis, būtent tuomet aukštaūgis atliks medicininę apžiūrą, kurią įveikus įsigalios jo ir LKL bronzos medalininkų sutartis. Translation: Accoring to R. Kurtinaitis, Egidijus will be able to play only after the New Year and the remaining recovery time will become clear this weekend. According to Krepšinis.lt (YES, according to Delfi.lt journalists, however this information is clearly based after speaking with Mockevičius or club representative that met Mockevičius at the airport), exactly then the medical examination will be performed after which the contract between him and LKL bronze medalists will become valid. / Head coach confirmed that Mockevičius is a part of the team in official press conference (https://www.basketnews.lt/news-113472-kurtinaitis-mockevicius-jau-turi-atvykti-bet-greiciausiai-nezais-iki-naujuju-metu.html). Obviously, the contract is already signed. The only problem is his surgery because of which he is not able to play. -- Pofka (talk) 19:09, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
First of all, you do not need to translate what was said, because Lithuanian is my native language, but looks like you ignored this fact (I wrote it in my last reply). Secondly, read again what I wrote – the deal is official when the team issues a press release on their website. A coach, an owner or a janitor can say whatever they want, but it becomes official only after the announcement is made. As for "Obviously, the contract is already signed." part – sources tell that Dwyane Wade has signed with the Cavaliers, but we do not add anything until it is officially announced. Do you understand the common practice in WikiProject or you will keep ignoring it? Because if ignoring is your way then we have nothing more to discuss. – Sabbatino (talk) 19:59, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
