From BR Bullpen

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! Mischa (talk) 10:22, 4 February 2016 (EST)

Thanks for all the work on the summer collegiate leagues; the guy who had been updating those pages vanished and no one else follows those leagues from our current contributors. One note - not every summer collegiate coach is notable. The problem is that many of them will become head college coaches so we don't know who is future-notable and who isn't. They are also notable if they played in the minors, for instance.

One other pointer - make sure pages link to the right guy. Ex. the Matt Duffy linked to on some of these pages is not either of the Matt Duffys for whom we have pages or the Jason Wood is a different Jason Wood. - --Mischa (talk) 12:41, 8 February 2016 (EST)

Why remove the list of teams from the summer collegiate league pages? - --Mischa (talk) 09:43, 4 April 2016 (EDT)

Thanks for the explanation. I'm glad you've taken on the job of updating the summer collegiate information - --Mischa (talk) 09:15, 7 April 2016 (EDT)

World Series pages to link them all together? Like Template:College World Series or Template:Baseball World Cup? - --Mischa (talk) 08:04, 15 April 2016 (EDT)

Good work creating all of those NBC World Series pages. I've made a few changes to the 2002 National Baseball Congress World Series page that should be reproduced on all the other pages of the series that you are working on: (1) move the page to its full, written-out title; (2) just add the template {{NBC World Series}} at the bottom of the page to replace the table linking to all editions of the tournament; (3) add the year category; and (4) start off the page like I did, to conform to the preferred bullpen style. Small things, but they will make your pages easier to find and to navigate. Keep it up ! --Philippe (talk) 10:21, 15 April 2016 (EDT)

Thanks for tackling the European Cups! Do you want to do a template for those too? - --Mischa (talk) 12:54, 28 June 2016 (EDT)

Nice work on all the college year-by-year records. This is a welcome addition. - --Mischa (talk) 15:43, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

The [[Category:College Coaches]] is reserved for head coaches. It is not given to assistant coaches. --Jeff (talk) 20:51, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

To update a logo, just go to special pages, then upload file, then upload a jpeg or gif with that logo on it - --Mischa (talk) 23:28, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

The old Harwich logo could have been kept and moved to a different part of the page with a caption that it was the old logo. --Jeff (talk) 17:32, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

If you want to add pages for some of the teams from Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, etc., you could put them under the category Misc Leagues & Teams - if we ever add a category for Russian League Teams or such, they could be reclassified - --Mischa (talk) 16:22, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Instead of adding the regular season results to each Italian Series page, you could make a new page (ex. 2017 Italian Baseball League season, 2016 Italian Baseball League season, etc.) like we have for Japan, Cuba, Taiwan and the Netherlands - --Mischa (talk) 14:06, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Great work on all the historic Mexican Winter League, Collegiate Summer League and Italian League year-by-year records and managers! - Mischa (talk) 13:05, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

Even if they're not complete, they add a lot more detail. Plus other details may show up. When I've done some roster pages for international tournaments, I turn up stuff years later to add to it. Like when I did 1938 Central American and Caribbean Games (Rosters), I found nothing for Mexico. Then recently I saw a reference to four of the Mexican players in The Pride of Havana and using that information helped bring up the rest on a google search. Or I was missing the Spanish national team members for much of the 1970s until a recent publication by the Spanish Baseball Federation filled in oodles of blanks. - Mischa (talk) 00:52, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

I apologize for not catching this sooner, but all images need to be tagged or they show up under special pages-uncategorized images. In the case of the many logos you've added, the tag is {{Logo}}. Again, sorry for not noting this previously. - Mischa (talk) 23:54, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Our convention has been to keep a team's history on the page name that they used at the time, instead of moving the whole history and using a redirect. i.e. Syracuse Chiefs and Syracuse Mets. Jeff (talk) 07:30, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Not sure why that problem is occurring. I'll email Sean Forman as it's more up his alley. - Mischa (talk) 13:57, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

There was a site maintenance about a month ago, that caused some strange things to happen, that are still happening [1]. Those links work fine for me, but maybe its related? Jeff (talk) 17:25, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the year-by-year records for the Cuban teams. - Mischa (talk) 14:15, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

If you want to get some of the defunct Cuban teams, they are at this site - ex. - Mischa (talk) 16:15, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

I didn't know if you wanted to tackle 2021 Serie A1 or not, now that the season is over. With the very different format, lots more teams to include. - Mischa (talk) 10:27, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for putting in the records for Mexican League teams. I've created a page for the Mariachis de Guadalajara if you want to update that as well. Philippe (talk) 15:39, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
