From BR Bullpen

Welcome to the Bullpen. Nice work on the roster template. There is a similar one that has been used for some pages - see 2006 White Sox. Both have their positive features. - --Mischa 08:49, 30 June 2008 (EDT)

Also see the ones used on the Kinston Indians season pages. 09:14, 30 June 2008 (EDT)

Hey, thanks for the welcome. I looked at the templates, and I thought about adding player numbers, but I think that may be too many parameters for a template. I did, however, add a coaches section, and I'm thinking about an owners section - though obviously none of it's up to me - if either of you can work in more that'd be awesome.--Danielfolsom 13:21, 30 June 2008 (EDT)

The Bonds baseball story isn't really noteworthy enough for the Today's News, which is more focused on records, pennants and other major news. You can add it to July 1 as a regular news item, though. - --Mischa 16:42, 1 July 2008 (EDT)

The only HoF news we've generally had in the Recent News section is the voting and induction of new members. - --Mischa 16:47, 1 July 2008 (EDT)

Glad to see that you got your deletion problem worked out. I do have deletion powers for future reference. Here is a list of all the sysops who can delete pages and block users in case you have a problem later: [1]. Kinston eagle 20:43, 1 July 2008 (EDT)

I don't think the template works very well for minor league players. There seems to be no way to turn off the debut and final game lines or the BR pages section where there are none. Kinston eagle 00:23, 6 July 2008 (EDT)

Thanks. Kinston eagle 00:33, 6 July 2008 (EDT)
The other main idea I had was for the possibility of showing more than one draft if the player was drafted multiple times like Beau Mills. Kinston eagle 00:35, 6 July 2008 (EDT)

Baseball Reference[edit]

Yes, but only back to 1992 and I do run across the occasional errors. They have mentioned that they will go back further sometime in the near future. Kinston eagle 00:37, 6 July 2008 (EDT)

Thank you. And, thanks for all the work you've been doing on the template. Kinston eagle 01:09, 6 July 2008 (EDT)
