[edit] Veterans

See Veterans dates to determine which category to use. - --Mischa 08:26, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

The dates they use for the US wars:

  • Spanish American War 4/21/1898 to 7/4/02
  • WW1 4/6/17 to 11/11/18
  • WW2 12/7/41 to 12/31/46
  • Korean Conflict 6/27/50 to 1/31/55

  • Republic of Viet Nam from 2/28/61 to 8/5/64 is also included.

[edit] Funny Letters

To create the accents, you hold down the <Alt> key (there's one on either side of the space bar) and type in the three-digit code for the accent on the keyboard (please note that the number keys at the top of the keyboard will not work for this). Try this, and if you can't get it to work, at least you have all the accents in one place to copy from.  :-)

Hi Jeff, the changes come from the latest SABR Biographical Committee newsletter. --Cmcgill (talk) 19:18, 28 February 2014 (EST)

A note - when people used to add new player/manager/etc. pages, I would add them to the birthdate, birthplace and school listings. Since I'm not as active nowadays, those updates aren't getting done as much. Please remember to add this info in for any pages you make. - --Mischa (talk) 11:42, 15 July 2014 (EDT)

Great pictures from the Cactus League, Jeff ! --Philippe (talk) 07:38, 15 March 2015 (EDT)

For the minor league coaches I have actually been using Trading Card Database. They don't/won't have info on any in season changes, just who was coach at the start of the season when the sets were made and of course if I see something that doesn't make sense or contradicts what is already here I leave it out. --Biggtone23 (talk) 20:44, 17 March 2015 (EDT)

The Penn State satellite schools are now four-year colleges (you can still transfer to main campus after two years). There are juniors and seniors on the roster. -- Jackmo77 09:45, 19 March 2015 (EDT)

I know the user who's making those edits. He's been researching minor league managers for a long time, so I don't doubt most of his info, but he's not good at the wiki markup. I've tried to give him some tips, and he's gotten a bit better, but I think he's also using some outdated sources for team names and such. --Cmcgill (talk) 17:19, 16 April 2015 (EDT)

Not to distract you from your current work, but these schools are redlinked and I was wondering if you could start pages for them: Ozarks Technical Community College, Pasco-Hernando State College and Southwest Illinois University at Carbondale. I added information to Goucher College as well, would you please see if it is okay? Thanks. Alex (talk) 02:35, 29 April 2015 (EDT)

I work on guys who die young (Jorge Sequea), first round draft picks (Tad Venger), guys who died recently who had somewhat meaty minor league careers (usually 5+ years, a whole bunch of guys) or did something somewhat notable (scouted, played college sports [Randy Cooper], politician) and active minor leaguers who led their leagues or were among the league leaders in major categories in recent years.

[edit] Kearney Buffaloes

Hi Jeff, just wondering why you changed the 1911 team to the Kapitalists? The EoMiLB 3rd edition has them as the Buffaloes, while Filichia doesn't list a team for 1911. --Cmcgill (talk) 17:50, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

Thanks for the clarification. It's odd when a team name changes during a string of consecutive years with the same name, but it happens occasionally. --Cmcgill (talk) 18:30, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

Please comment on Wheaton_College_(IL) - shouldn't it sort under Illinois, since the school is in Illinois? - -- Mdaubrey (talk) 15:52, 4 May 2016 (EDT)

Jeff, thank you for the explanation on categories. Also thanks for correcting my other blunders in that vein. - --Mdaubrey (talk) 15:35, 5 May 2016 (EDT)

[edit] Michael Jordan nicknames

Hi, why did you revert my changes to the nicknames? - Approximately (talk) 02:05, 16 October 2016 (EDT)

[edit] Pictures

Thanks for all the work on upgrading pictures. Could you find better ones for Felix Millan and Bobby Mitchell ? The ones we have now are both from shared cards, even though the have each have had individual cards issued. --Philippe (talk) 10:36, 10 November 2016 (EST)

Great stuff. Thanks. --Philippe (talk) 08:34, 12 November 2016 (EST)
