Glad to see great progress been made since the last time I was on. :thup: I have not as much time as I used to and probably will not until I am finished my work experience at the end of August. Weekends are mainly the only time I can contribute at the moment (I know this is not the weekend before anyone says anything :D).

I think it would be great if you could try to enforce some sort of standard layout for certain types of pages like the Club Guides for example. Hoffenheims page for example has info like Stadium Facilities and Transfer Budgets whilst other pages do not. This is handy info for someone who is looking to start a new game and it would be nice to see all teams pages like that and following the same structure for neatness and continuity. If all pages were like that perhaps people would use it as a guide for picking a club or nation to go manage when they are unsure.

If you decide that this is a good idea it would be better to put it in place sooner rather than later, so that there are less pages to edit.

I like Landon Donovans page btw, it's certainly not professional but it made me chuckle.

To follow up on this. Anyone can undo edits by going to history and then choosing undo. Admins can both undo and rollback edits but they are pretty similar.

Upload an image from your computer (you may need to download it first if you're getting the image off google) - http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Special:Upload
Copy & paste the name of the image, including the 'image:' bit.
Edit page screen.
[[Image:Image Name|Right/Left/Centred/leave blank if no justification is needed|image size (eg. 120px)]]. An example would be [[Image:Arsenal.jpg|right|100px]]

I can put it on the wiki if you like jammy. Also, I think we all need to discuss the format of club guides. I got rid of some of the headers to make it look like wikipedia style intros a few days back, but I'm now thinking maybe we should come up with a new structure. What are your opinions on this?

arsenal_2111
03-04-2009, 17:17
It'd be great if you could, if not then i'm sure others would be able to do them.

What sort of format are you suggesting? When I made them I made them as similar as I could, depending on what was in each guide.

ahmufcwafc
03-04-2009, 17:23
Anything that stops the index from being the first think you see on the page, with the intro above it. That's what I've done, but then the index looks a bit messy. What do you think yourself?

arsenal_2111
03-04-2009, 17:31
Yeah, I kind of see what you mean.

The real life information bit now isn't very easy to see, and the index looks a bit lost. I'm not really sure how it could be changed, but it could be better.

ahmufcwafc
03-04-2009, 18:17
Might as well explain it clearer in case some of you don't get me (not aimed at you jammy fwiw, I think you know what I'm on about.

Man Utd Page (http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Manchester_United)
Chelsea page (http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Chelsea)

Now, out of those two examples, which do you prefer? My problem with the Chelsea article is that it looks very bare without an introduction. I feel that the nickname, location etc should be put above the index - re-worded & with a bit more information included. What do you all think?

Man Utd Page (http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Manchester_United)
Chelsea page (http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Chelsea)

Now, out of those two examples, which do you prefer? My problem with the Chelsea article is that it looks very bare without an introduction. I feel that the nickname, location etc should be put above the index - re-worded & with a bit more information included. What do you all think?

Yes, I agree that the Utd article looks better. But about 1/10 of articles have a reasonable amount of intro, so on the majority it would just be a sentence or two on the top of the page. It would be pointless having that, as it would be missed half the time. Look at the Liverpool Page (http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Liverpool) for example. The real life information is a couple of lines, not including the peice about former managers (which I don't think is really needed, may delete it if no one minds). Yes, it will be a bit of an introduction. But in my opinion it would look a little ridiculous having one or two lines. A paragraph is needed minimum, and that is a lot of work.

Looking at setting up a dedicated Football Manager wiki site, to cover all incarnations of the game and provide a basis of information for people to refer too, with everything from tactics to patches.

Anybody else interesting in helping support this project?

Yeah, so this is how we stand at the moment. Most of these that I've listed (in particular the club guides) have quite a lot of information. It's just that they're missing that extra bit of information that would make them feel complete imo. Just to let anyone that has any knowledge on these subjects know :thup:

This has been posted in a seperate topic in the wiki forum as well.

I think we need to do something to make the club guide template stand out more - maybe put it on the front page? Maybe it's time to replace the 'why we set this up' part. Also, I'm going to write up a general guide to making wiki pages.

One last reminder - don't be afraid to add/remove stub tags from pages.

You know what, I think we should leave it on for now. Since there's so much you can do with the editor, I think we should leave it as a stub until it becomes a difinitive guide on using the editor.

Not a problem. :)

I presume his dates back a couple of years ago, because there have been some changes since then.

Liaoning Guangyuan is no more, of course.

There is no relegation from the S-League, unlike what he said.

And the Singapore Cup lasts all season long, instead of from April to June. The last one (2008) started in May and the final was in November.

Teams are now allowed to register 6 foreign players, but name only 4 in the match squad.

I should also add in a couple of things not in my original thread, but will be useful in the Wiki. These are fairly recent additions by the way.

Charity Shield
As you'd have guess, a pre-season curtain raiser between the League and Cup winners (or League runners-up if the double was achieved).

Singapore League Cup
A mid-season tournament played between all 12 League Clubs, usually lasting a month (May-June). The top 4 in the league the previous season gets a bye into the second round, while the rest play a one-off knockout first round. After that the format is similar to the Singapore Cup (two-legged knockout rounds) until the one-off final match. There is also a third place playoff (also present in the Singapore Cup).

Hope that has been helpful. :)

Instead of having empty pages cramp up the current category pages, how about we open a category for blank pages? Obviously we would re-categorise them again as soon as they have some content.

BenArsenal

That is pretty excellent :thup:, although (sorry, being picky here) the opening seems to contradict a little with the first paragraph of the S-League.

I would probably put the opening as such:

The S-League was formed in 1996, as Singapore's very own football league. Prior to this, football in Singapore consisted of the national team competing in the Malaysian Cup. After winning the trophy in 1994, a decision was made to withdraw from the tournament, which came as a shock to Singaporeans, ending a 75-year association with the tournament.

However, the S-League has moved leaps and bounds since then, and has become one of the top 10 leagues in Asia, according to the AFC (Asian Football Confederation). From 8 teams in 1996, it has since expanded to 12 teams, and has also attracted some foreign clubs to establish feeder teams in the league to increase its competitiveness.

The FA of Singapore have taken the unusual step of including a team of their own in the competition, Young Lions being made up of the vast majority of the nation's under-23 international side, although foreigners who are eligible to become Singaporean nationals are also allowed

The 12 teams all offer varying challenges, but it is a very promising league, and to be fair, with the right moves, anyone is capable of anything.


Then the start of the topic S-League would be "The S-League is made up of twelve clubs....etc"

Other than that, it's mostly good.

I think that it is a good idea but where would we put a link to this category, as I don't think that it should go on the top row.

Because people using the wiki are not going to click on a category of blank pages.

I sugeest placing it at the bottom of the first page and as long, as we know where it is then it will be alright as we can then, use it.

Every article IMO should be placed in one of these kind on holding places till one of us sees it and approves it (sees it as an appropriate good standard) and, then we could move it to the correct area. It would probably improve the standard of the articles.

I thought it was exactly the same. Go on then, put it back up. I don't like the idea of putting up a 'coming soon' notice, just leave that out. I think it looks tidier that way :)

Alan (or anyone else), can you help me with something?

I can't change the layout of the Stadiums page :(

It only has one line with the title and the link to the General stadiums page when I click on 'edit'.

I want to try something different with it as we are getting quite a lot of stadium articles and it is starting to look messy.

Plus, when creating a new article, I realized that we have two categorys for Stadiums - named 'Stadia(linked from the front page) and one called 'Stadiums' (have to do something different to get to)

Any help would be appreciated.

pnefc22
06-04-2009, 20:29
I guess we could have it without it being a category if JJay can't do anything.

As then, we could just link them off the Stadiums page.

06-04-2009, 20:37
Make a new page called 'Stadia', add the links and I'll sort the rest out :)

Ok cheers.

I think that it will be a lot neater like that, than a long list of stadiums.

I have added about 5 more stadiums.

EDIT: I can't make a new page called 'Stadia' because there is already the stadia page which talks about stadiums. Should I call it 'Stadiums' instead?

pnefc22
06-04-2009, 20:48

Did any of you know how the World Cup Group Stages are ordered?


If two or more teams end up with the same number of points, tiebreakers are used: first is goal difference, then total goals scored, then head-to-head results, and finally drawing of lots (i.e. determining team positions at random).

France just finished higher than Tunisia because of this, seems really unfair.

No, my FM game.

Both won 1, drew 1, lost 1, scored 4, conceded 4, have 0 GD and they drew their game 1-1.

Yet France finished higher. Seems unfair...

I'm going to try and do some stuff today :thup:

There's one thing I've noticed when browsing the site though. Under 'Nation Guides', some of them are articles about the nation, as you'd expect, e.g. their good players, honours etc. However, others are about the league system in the country. I think these should go under 'League Guides' instead. Would make more sense I think, as some articles in this section currently are like this anyway, but others just include the teams in the league.

For what it's worth, in my opinion the nation guides should contain information about the national team, then maybe a list of the leagues in the nation, linking them to the league guides pages.

Opinions? If you understand what I've just written :p

I think that they could merit their own category in the future but for the moment, they should be put in either the player or non-player category's.

I also think that instead of doing non-players(retired ones) we should focus on doing players in the game first.

But, if you would like, go ahead and do non-players.
