R96, I'd like to get your opinion on this revised infobox template for college football players: [1]. After determining what data points to include, we'll recruit a template editor to handle the coding for us. Once we determine what fields we're adding and what we're deleting, then we'll work on the modified graphics. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 02:30, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Jason McCourty page error[edit]

Devin McCourty does NOT play for your shitty giants lmao 67.239.229.99 (talk) 02:59, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I did not make that edit nor am I a Giants fan. ~ Richmond96 TC 03:11, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

north florida rankings...[edit]

I get it that you must be a North Florida fan. You've kept their page this season up to date really well but the rankings table is completely not needed. Receiving 1 vote in the AP poll is not worth that entire table. Maybe mention in the header that they received their first AP vote (which I'm guessing is true) but if never in the top 25 in either poll then the ranking table is just a waste of space. Bsuorangecrush (talk) 20:59, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

@User:Bsuorangecrush, Fair point. Thanks. ~ Richmond96 TC 02:18, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Conference basketball season pages[edit]

Hey, I saw you have been actively editing a college basketball conference season page, so please see this discussion here so we can get a consensus of editors. While this discussion is specifically on the SEC page, it concerns all conferences' pages. Jhn31 (talk) 22:42, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Round of 64 vs second round[edit]

I noticed you started changing all of the second rounds to round of 64. I do not agree with this but how about this as a compromise: change it to round of 64/32 in the info box but in the gamename field leave it as Second/Third round? I don't think it will be that confusing and, like I said before, if anyone has questions they can go to the tournaments page. Bsuorangecrush (talk) 01:25, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Look at Robert Morris's page. I think that looks good. Says round of 64 yet still has official round name in the schedule table. Bsuorangecrush (talk) 01:27, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Sure, that sounds like a good compromise. Can you make a note of this on the WP:CBB page? ~ Richmond96 TC 01:30, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Done. I assume round of xx only for 64 and 32, still do sweet sixteen, elite eight and final four? And other tournament just to round # and quarters/semis?Bsuorangecrush (talk) 01:38, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I would go with that for now, yes. Thanks. ~ Richmond96 TC 01:41, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I'll make the changes right now for the teams that lost in the round of 64 this year, shouldn't take to long. Bsuorangecrush (talk) 01:45, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Alright, I'll be making the rounds as well to make clean up the game stat leader colums per the other discussion. Are you okay with the formatting I have been using for teams that won their conference regular season and conference tournament? See 2014–15 Albany Great Danes men's basketball team and 2014–15 North Florida Ospreys men's basketball team. I added the line break so that the text is more symmetrical. Just an aesthetic issue. ~ Richmond96 TC 01:56, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I'd say no need to link to the conference because that's already in the infobox. Maybe if the conference season has an article, I know a few do. I would say teams that won co-conference regular season titles and won their tournament should still be listed separately and not with an &. Like on Northeastern it would look weird to say "CAA regular season co–champions and tournament champions". At least it looks weird to me.Bsuorangecrush (talk) 02:06, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Agreed on your first point. For the co-champions, I really think it looks fine. Take a look below. What do you think? ~ Richmond96 TC 02:19, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

When separated like that its not to bad. The times I had seen it before looked clunky.Bsuorangecrush (talk) 03:17, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Color graphics for Infobox college football player[edit]

3-pixel accent with white text
Florida Gators

R96, here's a sneak peel at how the revamped infobox is going: Template:Infobox college football player/testcases#Joe Cool (typical example). What do you think of the colors, graphics, and layout and design? In particular, how do you like the "college varsity stripe graphics?" Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:04, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

It looks really good. I was iffy about the stripes at first but I think they look great. ~ Richmond96 TC 18:08, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
The proverbial picture is worth a thousand words, eh? The idea is that the college sports infobox graphics will match those of the existing team and coach navboxes. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 18:12, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Are you going to change the team and coach infoboxes to match those of the players? ~ Richmond96 TC 18:43, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
My next goal is consolidate the various NCAA team infobox templates, and upgrade their colors and graphics to something very similar if not identical to this. The colors and graphics for the coach and team navboxes are already very similar, but there may be some tweaks based on the last five years of experience and greater sensitivity to text/background contrast issues per WP:ACCESS. That's down the road, though. Infobox college coach is probably the last thing to touch, and I'm not going anywhere near it without Jweiss11's blessing -- he has spent years getting its 1,000s of examples uniformly formatted.

Jaguars[edit]

Thank you for changing it — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.45.95.83 (talk) 03:33, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

gamename field[edit]

Just curious if you know whats going on here. On 2014–15 Fresno State Bulldogs men's basketball team the gamename field appears under the opponent yet on 2014–15 Boise State Broncos men's basketball team, and all other pages from what I can tell, it appears after under the stadium. I have no clue why it's different on Fresno State's but frankly I think that looks better. Any reason why this is happening? Bsuorangecrush (talk) 16:02, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Try purging the page. ~ Richmond96 TC 17:44, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
That looks so much better under the opponent. Not sure if you're the one who did that but it looked out of place under the stadium so good upgrade. Bsuorangecrush (talk) 15:00, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. That was User:Fbdave who made the change. ~ Richmond96 TC 21:06, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Hmmm[edit]

A little young to remember the Beatles, aren't you: [2]? Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:55, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Ha. Far too young, but they were about the only band I listened to for most of my high school years. I was convinced that good music had died in the 70's, although I've grown to like lots of new alt rock/indie stuff. My latest passion is vinyl records, which I'm excited to see are making a comeback. Good to know at least somebody reads my user page! ~ Richmond96 TC 04:23, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Please comment pertaining to new school articles and categories[edit]

I began an important issue that will affect the college football, basketball, and baseball projects. You are a regular editor within any or all of these WikiProjects and your input is requested. Please weigh in at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College Basketball#University of Texas Rio Grande Valley athletics. Thank you! Jrcla2 (talk) 01:41, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

College basketball schedule templates, etc.[edit]

So, are we now going to have game stats leaders in all season articles (see, e.g., 2015–16 Florida Gators men's basketball team), or just those articles where the crufters demand the option? If we don't want it in the Gators season articles, now is the time to nip it in the bud. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 05:56, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

To be honest with you I'm sort of indifferent in the issue now. I still do not prefer them, but now that we have gotten the template width under control, they are not such a terrible eyesore. I'm not going to change the status quo and add them to Gator articles, and I'm sure you're not either, but if someone else does and updates them regularly, I'm not going to revert. I used to revert them from Gators pages with the "excuse" that we instead use a team statistics table (which is better IMO), but last season I didn't get around to adding one. ~ Richmond96 TC 16:25, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
YesY "team statistics table is better." Roger that. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:59, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Yep. But it is also more work, which is maybe why it hasn't caught on. ~ Richmond96 TC 23:15, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Correcting the error in regards to listing Derrico Peck as a transfer(the error) when in fact he graduated from Northeastern[edit]

Apologize for getting straight to the point, Derrico Peck graduated from Northeastern making The Dean's List last quarter 3+GPA, Did not transfer, officially a student athlete alumnus 2012-2015, suggest to reach out to him, he has an interesting story, graduated in 3yrs — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.160.211.114 (talk) 05:31, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Less busy-looking table templates[edit]

Dsimic and I have a discussion going regarding the appearance of the table-cell templates {{Dunno}} and {{Unknown}}. I see you've commented there before; could I pester you to weigh in? Thank you! – voidxor (talk | contrib) 01:48, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello, thank you for the consideration. I am not knowledgeable enough in this subject to have either a strong or well-informed opinion. I commented there before only because the issue at hand related to college sports formatting. ~ Richmond96 TC 03:13, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Tommie Campbell[edit]

When the frick did they resign him? From everything I could find, he had only one year on his contract and he became a free agent. And there were no sources for him resigning, even from the sites that said he was a free agent. If they are reporting on him form practice, I believe it, but why was there such a discrepancy? RevanFan (talk) 01:13, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm wondering the same thing my friend. Very strange. Maybe the details of his contract were incorrectly reported, or his re-signing was somehow overlooked? Those are the only things I can think of. ~ Richmond96 TC 01:26, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
Also, unrelated, I just saw your edit removing a player from a roster after he was waived/injured. If a player is waived/injured, put him in the reserve section with the "W/I" designation. If he clears waivers, he reverts to IR. RevanFan (talk) 01:20, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I was planning to add him to IR if he cleared but this definitely makes more sense. ~ Richmond96 TC 01:26, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Oops[edit]

I did that, and didn't realize it, when I was doing a mass search-and-replace in Gators articles: [3]. Thanks for fixing it. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 01:32, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

No problem. I was just getting ready to message you about it. ~ Richmond96 TC 01:45, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

Jacksonville University colors[edit]

Instead of removing the {{CollegePrimaryStyle|Jacksonville Dolphins|color=white}} from the Jacksonville University templates, just change the colors at Module:College color/data? The Module is there for a reason, and it save a person less time in changing all of the colors in the articles/templates. If Academic colors are different, than the Template:Jacksonville University should stay different than what the Module says. Also, I couldn't find a source for these colors, so maybe you can? Sources are the main issue right now, especially for the Module. Thanks. Corkythehornetfan 01:17, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

I couldn't really find a source at all, so I pulled the green from their athletics logo on sportslogos.net. And I didn't know about the module, thanks. I do know that if you look at their athletics website and their various team uniforms, the shade of green is clearly darker than what was being used. That's why I made the change. ~ Richmond96 TC 01:28, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
No problem. I've been looking for a source for JU for a while now, so I didn't have a problem with the change of the colors (it was obvious they needed updated), I just thought I'd save you less work! Corkythehornetfan 01:41, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll change the templates back and edit the module instead. ~ Richmond96 TC 01:53, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

College schedule template[edit]

Hello. I think the schedule/result box has too many wrap around instead of the info being in a single line. How can we make it better? Let me know if I didn't make sense. La Fuzion (K lo K) 16:18, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. There has been much debate over the template and a few months ago, we made some changes that improved the line wrapping. To do this, we decided that each row would take up two lines of text. Believe it or not, the line wrapping used to be much worse. If you have any specific ideas for changes to be made, please discuss them here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Basketball. Thanks. ~ Richmond96 TC 16:36, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Okay cool. I thought I was the only one for a second. LOL... Take a look at this and tell me what you think. La Fuzion (K lo K) 19:18, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

It looks very nice. My only concern is that it is wider than what we have currently and may cause line wrapping on smaller screens. It also doesn't include individual game leaders in points, rebounds, and assists, which some users (myself excluded) feel very strongly about keeping. Those would definitely make the table too wide. ~ Richmond96 TC 04:45, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

I can see that; however, this fits the average PC screen. I don't see where the individual stats are added on the original template. La Fuzion (K lo K) 18:18, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

They are added to some teams' pages, such as 2015–16 North Florida Ospreys men's basketball team and 2015–16 Florida Gators men's basketball team. ~ Richmond96 TC 02:25, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Gators women's basketball team[edit]

@Richmond96, MisterCake, and Zeng8r: Are you guys following the Lady Gators hoopsters this year? These gals look like the may be the first team that deserves to be ranked since Carol Ross left in 2002. If I'm not mistaken, the Gators women's basketball team is the only Gators team that has never won a conference championship. It would be a huge step for Amanda Butler, the team and the athletic program generally, if the team could move into the top-tier of the SEC and finally win one. Fingers crossed, Gators fans. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 14:27, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Yep, they are having a good year. I have also been impressed with the men and I think they're ahead of schedule. My Ospreys are poised for another March Madness run! ~ Richmond96 TC 23:38, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I have not and don't often watch women's basketball. Our men's basketball this year already depressed me. I will have to try and catch some of their games. Cake (talk) 02:01, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
