Templates Help[edit]

Can someone please help me with the coding for Template:ParalympicNationRow I am no programmer and I can't work out what I have done wrong. There is an example on the template page. User:Yachty40000 (talk) 01:07, 16 Sept 2016 (UTC)

Sports Year articles too long[edit]

2014 in sports, 2015 in sports, 2016 in sports & 2017 in sports are way too long & can't be navigated. GoodDay (talk) 19:40, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Lets split it up into multiple articles and then keep the original as a navigation page? Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 23:37, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm not good at doing those things. But, I'll support it. GoodDay (talk) 04:13, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
I'll support it too but unfortunately 2017 in motorsports has been merged into List of 2017 motorsport champions. Let's have your opinion on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Motorsport#XXXX in motorsports, thanks. Donnie Park (talk) 19:56, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Today would have been Lella Lombardi's 75th birthday; I've added her to March 26#Births. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:23, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Question about notability[edit]

Are pages like 2014-2015 Iowa Wrestling Team and 2015-2016 Iowa Wrestling Team considered notable and/or worth having? They seem like little more than stats pages. Based on the category tree, they're the only two individual-season articles we have on wrestling (at least within the Big 10) in the entirety of USA Division I collegiate wrestling. Primefac (talk) 15:54, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Personally, I do not think they are. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 21:22, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Sports/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Sports.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Sports, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Sports league seasons[edit]

Hello, we should really have some criteria for league seasons (as opposed to individual team seasons). For some reason baseball is very restrictive about which leagues have season articles, while sports like ice hockey and association football are far more lenient. Right now there is a discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/2016 Can-Am League season, where the baseball people are saying the article should be deleted, while I know for a fact there are non professional sports league season articles or minor professional league season articles for other sports. -- Earl Andrew - talk 19:17, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
