Hello to those of you who join! I think the first thing we need to figure out is the importance ratings for this task force. What are the criteria we should set to determine high vs. mid vs. low? Or, should we do away with importance for this task force? – Muboshgu (talk) 01:20, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Personally I don't really think we need to worry about importance; they're all in the Hall of Fame so they all have major importance to begin with; further breaking it down isn't really necessary. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 16:19, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but this task force includes other Halls of Fame aside from Cooperstown; for instance, British Baseball Hall of Fame. If we want to consider them all the same, then we could remove the importance rating from the task force. – Muboshgu (talk) 17:40, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Jimmy Collins[edit]

While I'm not officially a member of this subproject, I thought you might want to have a look at the start I made a few days ago on improving the article for Jimmy Collins. -Dewelar (talk) 23:39, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Great! – Muboshgu (talk) 23:47, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Key to BBWAA election results table[edit]

This concerns template {{BBWAA balloting key}} and its Talk.

I suggest we display the Key beside the annual table of BBWAA election results rather than above it. I have revised Baseball Hall of Fame balloting, 2013#BBWAA election (current year only) to show that layout.

Please discuss at Template talk: BBWAA balloting key. --P64 (talk) 17:32, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

The template is marked High-importance but there are no replies in six months.
In January I revised the 2013 balloting article [1] positioning the template beside rather than above the table. Compare
At the same time I revised the template [2] improving our explanations of the four background colors and [3] incorporating explanations of the two symbols. Compare
Numerals refer to the three Template talk sections. In section 2 concerning the color code I observed that in order to fit all elections we probably need to enrich the template, enabling replacement of some default text (or need multiple templates). The point pertains to the entire key, colors and symbols.
Momentarily, a new template talk section concerns [4] template usage, currently 2007 to 2013 only.

Alexander Cartwright[edit]

Can someone rewrite the article for Alexander Cartwright? The article needs be better research and reflect modern scholarly consensus on the subject.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 18:32, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
