Shelton Dube[edit]

I believe the Shelton Dube article should be deleted, as I can find no evidence to support that any such player has ever existed. DynamoDegsy (talk) 23:27, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

Bert Holcroft[edit]

Hi all, I've been talking to a user who is a friend of Bert Holcroft and is keen to improve that article. I've linked him to some stuff on COI and talked about references but am hoping someone with some knowledge of Rugby League can chip in. Many thanks, Tacyarg (talk) 21:38, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

Million Pound Game Formatting[edit]

There is currently a discussion at [1] that involves this Wikiproject. RhinosF1 (talk) 15:52, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Page merge?[edit]

West Wales Raiders Rugby League and West Wales Raiders contain information about the same club. I propose a merge, with West Wales Raiders reverting to South Wales Ironmen and containing just information about that (former) club and the merger Cavie78 (talk) 12:20, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

I support this suggestion! 2A02:C7D:89A3:F400:B1A8:B163:717:9365 (talk) 01:33, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

Automatic removal of the '|nickname = ' field from 'rugby league biography' infobox[edit]

@Jevansen:, et al… whilst I have no strong objection to the removal of the '|nickname = ' field from 'rugby league biography' infobox, I believe it would be useful if only empty fields were automatically removed, and that if possible a list of articles with an entry in the '|nickname = ' field was produced, so that the nicknames are not lost, and that an attempt to find references for, e.g. Michael Beattie's nickname of "Pigskin", etc. can be made. Best regards. DynamoDegsy (talk) 11:33, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I'm not yet removing the field if it is currently referenced, because we can move that information into the article. Otherwise I don't see an issue removing the rest, unreferenced nicknames certainly shouldn't be on BLPs like Michael Beattie. Anyway I won't do any further edits tonight pending further comments. Jevansen (talk) 12:13, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
If they have to go, probably best that the empty fields are selected first, then the unreferenced, etc so to allow those to work them into the article or see a return to the infobox template.Fleets (talk) 18:55, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
For reference, there are 1537 pages that use |nickname=. Unfortunately because there are 50+ uses there isn't a list of which pages have no data, but if desired a bot run can be submitted; if it is, we should probably get a list of all parameters that need removing outright just to increase the likelihood of a successful BRFA.
