IP changing height/weight[edit]

Special:Contributions/ seems to adjust values in infoboxes. Someone familiar with the topic may like to think about whether the changes are helpful. Johnuniq (talk) 10:22, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Eastern Counties[edit]

I think I've found a hole in Wiki - see e.g. David Emms, who played for that select team. Eastern Counties in that article points to a DAB page full of irrelevancies. IIRC (it was a bit before my time) there were several regional rugby teams, including Eastern Counties, who played regular (annual?) representative matches. Eastern Counties 1 and so on may be successors to the name, but are not the same thing at all. I doubt Eastern Counties (rugby) deserves an article, but British regional rugby union teams (or amateur competitions, or competitive drinking, or something) might. Narky Blert (talk) 00:58, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

If they meet WP:GNG they will warrant an article. I know many regional selections were considered first-class and would be considered very notable. The fact that they no longer hold that status is irrelevant as notability is not temporary (see WP:NTEMP). I would happily help but I have no sources. From memory there are probably a number of French regional/national selections that would also be notable, as during the amateur era touring teams generally played them and not club sides. Could be wrong about that though. -- Shudde talk 14:22, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
Definitely merit an article. Eastern Counties is one of the county rugby unions which are "constituent bodies" of the RFU. They aren't the same as the "Western Counties" etc which used to play representative games against touring sides and were formed of players from various county sides. Eastern Counties adminster the game in Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridgeshire and used to include Essex until they split off. They are still very much active and are the same sort of body & team as Lancashire Rugby Football Union, North Midlands Rugby Football Union and so on. I've created a few articles on the RFU county bodies and I'll have a look at starting one out for Eastern Counties. They have their own website and should be enough stuff around online and in books to pass the GNG. --Bcp67 (talk) 19:26, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
There's a basic stub in place now for ECRU and I've fixed the link to David Emms, added the article to the dab page and got some other articles linked. Thanks to Narky Blert for spotting this. --Bcp67 (talk) 06:58, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Seb Adeniran-Olule[edit]

Just thought I'd notify members of the project that the above rugby player has been put up for AfD at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2016 May 20#Seb Adeniran-Olule. It's true that there's virtually nothing to the article at present, but as he appears to have played for Harlequins a couple of times, he might pass notability requirements if some more information can be found about him... the article isn't tagged for WikiProject Rugby Union so the AfD won't appear on the project's alerts listing.

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 01:22, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Broken infobox[edit]

Just a note, our current infobox (which has been shit since day one) no longer shows nicknames, maybe someone can fix that..--Stemoc 01:02, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Move discussion at Talk:Greater_Sydney_Rams[edit]

Hello all

There is a move discussion at Talk:Greater_Sydney_Rams, proposing to move it to the Western Sydney Rams, that hasn't had any input yet. If anyone has an opinion on that, please contribute. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 23:02, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
