Welcome to BR Bullpen! We hope you will contribute much and well. You will probably want to read the help pages. Again, welcome and have fun! Jeff (talk) 22:07, 4 August 2013 (EDT)

Now that the minor league no-hitter list is done, I wonder if you'd want to tackle a minor league Triple Crown list for our Triple Crown page. I found this website but I think it's a bit dated and don't know how complete it is. - --Mischa (talk) 11:09, 1 October 2013 (EDT)

Sure, I'll work on it. I'll start with what's on that page, and see if I can find any others.

No idea on the email updates; never tried using the feature. I'll check with Sean. - --Mischa (talk) 08:10, 7 October 2013 (EDT)

Thanks for uploading all of those pictures. A couple of small things: When you add a picture to the initial section of a player page, you should insert the template {{clear}} below the link for the BR page, as it ensures that the first section (Biographical Information) starts below the picture and not in the middle of it. Also, when you upload the image of a baseball card, add to the file description the set and number of the card (e.g. 1980 Topps Nr. 123) and the template {{BaseballCard}}. --Philippe (talk) 08:23, 10 October 2013 (EDT)

If a page has --Mischa (talk) 09:32, 14 October 2013 (EDT)

, you don't need to add |Doe,John after Category:Minor League Managers. Hope that makes sense; let me know if not - --Mischa (talk) 09:32, 14 October 2013 (EDT)

I added the variable you asked for. Let me know if it works.Admin (talk) 10:00, 18 October 2013 (EDT)

yeah!! Admin (talk) 16:39, 4 November 2013 (EST)

A player's page either needs the DEFAULTSORT or the |last name, first name listed after each category. If removing the latter, please add the former, ex. {{DEFAULTSORT:Henderson,Rickey}} - --Mischa (talk) 08:08, 9 December 2013 (EST)

Sorry about that. I guess I misunderstood your earlier note. I'll be more careful from now on. --Cmcgill (talk) 08:59, 9 December 2013 (EST)

I should have explained better; my apologies. - --Mischa (talk) 11:20, 9 December 2013 (EST)

Not your fault, but with your username in the middle of the post, it prevented the {{DEFAULTSORT}} from showing up. Thus, I never noticed it. --Cmcgill (talk) 14:43, 9 December 2013 (EST)

Actually, it appears that the <nowiki></nowiki> coding is needed, otherwise the {{DEFAULTSORT}} doesn't show up on the Talk page. --Cmcgill (talk) 14:46, 9 December 2013 (EST)

Here's another project for the minors - four+ HR in a game lists; SABR has one at http://sabr.org/research/four-homers-one-game - --Mischa (talk) 12:22, 17 December 2013 (EST)

That's a good idea. There are lots of lists created by SABR members that would be good to add, with permission of course. Title ideas? Minor League Four HR Games? --Cmcgill (talk) 12:24, 17 December 2013 (EST)

Minor League Games with Four or more Home Runs, maybe? - --Mischa (talk) 12:32, 17 December 2013 (EST)

It's a bit tricky isn't it, because you want to convey the idea that it's by one person. Minor Leaguers with Four or more Home Runs in a Game? That's a bit wordy though. --Cmcgill (talk) 13:07, 17 December 2013 (EST)

We have lists with more complicated names (ex. List of first players to sign with a MLB team from different countries) - --Mischa (talk) 13:34, 17 December 2013 (EST)

You should use Image tags when uploading images. I think all of the ones you're doing meet the PD-USA category, but am not 100% certain. - --Mischa (talk) 13:09, 3 January 2014 (EST)

What is the source(s) for the recent changes to birth/death places and dates? The Bullpen pages no longer match the main BR pages. --Jeff (talk) 19:17, 28 February 2014 (EST)

It's been my job for the past 7 or 8 years to update the Bullpen based on reports of SABR's Biographical Research Committee. This involves not just changing the player pages, but all the linked pages, such as cities, calendar, etc. and inserting references when available. Kindly let me continue with this project; there are many others to take on if you wish. --Philippe (talk) 03:56, 1 March 2014 (EST)

Our practice has been to have the births and deaths categories at the end of the categories list - FYI. - --Mischa (talk) 12:12, 12 May 2014 (EDT)

I've spun off the Minor League Perfect Games into its own page, as it was getting quite lengthy on the main perfect game page. Hope you don't mind. --Philippe (talk) 04:17, 25 August 2014 (EDT)
