Nomination for deletion of Template:Location map Kingdom of HungaryEdit

From my talk page back in september.

Bugger bugger bugger, I saw a map in the transport museum in budapest we went the other week and it had the lat and long but in pretty much a mercator projection. My missus was more interested with the toy trains so I didn't get a chance to take the measures off it. If it's wrong (as it is) it should be deleted but I am still trying to get the measures right. The thing is it's specifically Kingdom of Hungary, but the more atlases (atli? :) I look at the more different lats and longs I get. And anything one does on Hungarian articles is rather contentious, so it is probably really better deleted. Because people whose great grandfathers were part of the Kingdom of Hungary will say no that's Croatia or Slovakia or Slovenia or Yugoslavia or Jugoslavia or The People's Republic of East Kebab. Since Hungarian politics is very contentious and goes on racist grounds in far more than would be allowed in where I come from, this is better off deleted. (Hint: say Treaty of Trianon to a Hungarian and await results.) Si Trew (talk) 09:36, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Hungary ethic groups.jpg
I never did get round to this. I took the coords off of file at right, which is very high quality but seems to have an odd idea of where 0 longitude is (it suggests it is east of Paris, but that didn't seem to work). As you suggested, I tried to take well-known points at the edges of the map: Fiume, for example, at south-west. I took very good readings after printing out this map at A0 size and using ruler and compass, my trig is quite good, but I could never get it to fit. Si Trew (talk) 06:02, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
.Oh, Template:Location_map_Kingdom_of_Hungary/test might help you. You see, Fiume's in the right place but Budapest is a bit too far left and the rest are well out. Si Trew (talk) 06:09, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
That map uses the Paris meridian. It's not a Mercator projection, the lines of latitude aren't quite parallel. Maproom (talk) 20:09, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Maproom, thanks for the tip. I have written code for generating coefficients for nonlinear projections if I know the functional form. but, the code requires at least as many reference points as there are coefficients. basically a nonlinear least-squares algorithm. the problem here is that other than the reference markings on the side of the map, it's tough to get reference points in the middle. Frietjes (talk) 21:18, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Si Trew, should we just give up on Template:Location map Kingdom of Hungary and have it deleted? Frietjes (talk) 21:20, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
How many do you need in the middle? You get get a reference point near each corner by specifying where the nearest line of (Paris) longitude would cross the nearest line of latitude, and use towns like Szolnok (which Google Earth says is 47°10'N 20°11'E Greenwich) in the middle. Maproom (talk) 21:37, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Maproom, now that I look at it again, I think we have enough with the two interior intersection points and the points along the edges. the original question was about the image in Template:Location map Kingdom of Hungary which is less clear. for File:Hungary-ethnic_groups.jpg, I think we can make a working location map. thank you again. Frietjes (talk) 21:42, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Just a thought, maybe not very coherent at this time of night. Using an ethnographic map as a location map may, as Si Trew pointed out, be contentious. Will it help if instead I upload to Commons this map? It uses a Ferro meridian, which is no worse than Paris, and shows enough towns such as Szolnok for central reference points. Maproom (talk) 22:02, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Maproom, that may help. let's see what Si Trew says. my main focus is turning map images into working location maps. I don't really have a strong feeling about the particular map image, so long as it is created with a well-defined projection. Frietjes (talk) 22:06, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Just asking out of curiosity – how do you "turn a map image into a location map"? Do you warp it into the Mercator projection that the template requires? Or do you supply the template with a transform function? Maproom (talk) 07:24, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Maproom, supply the transformation function. see, for example, module:Location map/data/Canada. if I know the functional form and a sufficient number of reference points, I can numerically solve for the coefficients. Frietjes (talk) 12:40, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. It's reassuring to see that things are done in such a sensible and comprehensible way. Incidentally – if you ever find a map image at that you could use in Wikipedia, please let me know and I'll put it on Commons. Maproom (talk) 09:46, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
───────────────────────── Thanks for pinging me in on this. I know it was a long time ago. User:Maproom, yes I did guess it was the Paris Meridian all that time ago, but that didn't seem quite to fit either. Since then I took something and with Inkscape made a four-colour map (five if you include Lake Balaton as a fifth colour, blue, but could have been made a fourth colour as those that surround it are all in three other colours, it is just more pleasant to have it in blue but not mathematically necessary) and split out all the layers and borders and so on into separate layers on the SVG. I seem to recall I called it Template:Location Map Hungary2 or something – and I emphasise this is not the Kingdom of Hungary but the modern-day Hungary. All I had left to do was get the text labelling right. Searching for "a new look for an old map" was something roughly want some commenter said, may well have been User:Frietjes here but may not have been (a long time ago, just going from memory: and those exact words are what was printed on the front of the first H C Beck fold-up London Underground Diagram (often called "Map"; Beck himself never called it a map: I have good references for this from publications of the London Transport Museum in woodware) of 1933, so I am probably confusing those words with the same sentiment expressed. This is all such a long time ago, I give as hints for those who can search better than I.
On the plus side, by pure coincidence (these are not common around here in Budapest) my local pub has a nice 1898ish German (I think) map of Austria-Hungary; certainly pre-Treaty of Trianon. This is a five or six colour map and I am pretty sure it is in German but I am going from memory, I don't think it's in Hungarian. It would be about 40 by 25 inches (1,020 mm × 640 mm) and I daresay somehow I could get it scanned in, in one of the largescale printers in the town (who I happen to be also on good terms with, for various other reasons) or just take four A3 scans and stitch them with photoshop, assuming that my scanner doesn't distort too much. I am on good terms with the landlord as I have given him my British registration plates and various other British pub memorablia, it is that kind of pub, very much a "local", so I can ask to borrow the map (it's framed) or just go in on a quiet afternoon with a straightedge etc and try to get some measures off that. I think it is not the same as the image is here, though quite similar. As a start shall I get the maker etc, would that help at all, before I do the trig etc off it? I have a very good straightedge and fifty quids worth of setsquare adjustable protractor that I use for technical drawing on my A0 drawing board, it's about 25 inches (640 mm) long on its hypotenuese, which should be enough to measure angles and distances with some kinda veracity, I am not sure of the projection without looking again. Is it worth me taking a look and reporting back, probably will be about UTC+2 Friday tomorrow, else Monday? If you give me some nice trig points "in the middle" I will do my best to give you the readings off of them. These won't be 100% accuracy but will be within a second of arc or two through the distortion of the glass in the frame, I would imagine. Si Trew (talk) 16:05, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
I understand if it is WP:COPYVIO etc but if I check the maker first, it may very well turn out not to be because of the date and also various other "things that have happened since", could well be PD or fair use. I think I check the maker first, that is clear enough in top right corner but don't remember offhand. Would that be of any use, at least to confirm or deny if it's the same as this one? It reminded me of this one, when I first saw it, but I think it is different but of about the same time. Si Trew (talk) 16:40, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
File:Hungary_location_map.svg is the one I made the four-colour svg version of. It just needs tidying on the text labels layer if I remember right, I can't remember its name. The computer it was on is long gone. File:Hungary location map2.svg? Something like that. We have File:Hungary location map-2.jpg on Commons, but that's not it, cos it's not four-colour and has labels in Cyrillic, is a jpg not an svg. Perhaps unfortunately it got deleted as unused. I'd need to ask an admin to dredge from about 2009 onwards. Users working on it would have been mostly me and perhaps occasionally the missus, no longer editing at Wikipedia for many a year due to very harsh and undeserved comments after excellent translations of English articles about the Tudors into HU:WP (something she is an expert in, more than I know and I'm bloody English): Her username was/is User:Monkap. Si Trew (talk) 16:51, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
OK, the map you included wrongfooted me, this is exactly the map that is nominated (duh!) I was looking at the map you included on the right. No, don't give up on it, I'll try to fix it. It is nearly OK, all the coords and borders and counties etc are done on separate labels and I think it is much better than the boring brown map transcluded via {{Infobox Hungarian settlement}}. We just need to fix the edges and fix the text-label layer for some reason the font doesn't scale properly, I never did work out why, I shall try again. One reason to separate into different layers in a good GIS fashion is so that with a flick of the wrist one can turn off all the labels, turn off e.g. the county borders, make all the counties brown and just fill one particular county in a different colour (for Hungarian county articles) etc etc etc. I hand-edited the XML for the SVG to make it all nice, it's much much nicer than its predecessor for putting into a GIS etc because each county edge and county border and county name etc is labeleed in a very consistent fashion. The underlying SVG is File:Kingdom_of_Hungary_counties-2.svg. The polygons for the borders go actually in a kinda "cogwheel" order so that some going anticlockwise have their boundaries against the others going clockwise, rather in a toothed gearwheel manner, but that was just my pedantry; each county actually has its own borders as it did on the original, but on the original the borders for e.g Budapest to Pest County were a bit different from the borders of Pest County to Budapest, i.e. there was a gap or overlap, which now there is not in "my" version, they have all the coordinates bang on, as I did them all in hand in the XML not with some "snap it roughly to where it looks right" tool. All the bordering points have the same coords but the opposite directions (clockwise or widdershins) which helps the SVG polygon fill get it right without overlap or gap.
I think we should keep it and try to fix the labels and the "fix" coordinates for it. I suppose this was a labour of love but I think it does make it better than what is used in the infobox, it scales except for the text labels and the old one has errors in the border coords that leave gaps or overlaps, it just doesn't seem so at the scale used in infoboxes, as the rendering of the borders and the pushpins for the places are far larger than the errors, at even a large-screen resolution scale. If you blow it up and print it onto A0 (paper size) is is noticeable. Si Trew (talk) 17:05, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
The text labels are fine on my I think 1972 across screen in full view. When I made this I think I had a 1024x768 screen. It's when the labels are all squished they don't scale down properly, and get all scrunched up, I have never quite worked out why. There is a style that governs it, and I tried all sorts of things but none worked. Si Trew (talk) 21:04, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Coderzombie, should work now. (1) all tables that could be transcluded must be tightly enclosed with <onlyinclude>...</onlyinclude> and (2) all tables inside of <onlyinclude>...</onlyinclude> must have |section=Group .... Frietjes (talk) 17:24, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I understand your logic, but I think there should have been more consensus. This may have some more consequences we are trying to avoid. If someone make changes in the page 2019 Durand Cup it can mess up pages that transclude it. I understand that same would happen in templates too, but templates are not edited as often as the pages itself. Coderzombie (talk) 17:37, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

What you uncollapsed is not actual article content; it's not even the bibliography for the article, whose referencing system is under development. I'm going to have to find a different solution to avoid these pedantic edits. Drmies (talk) 15:05, 10 August 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for you hint to that script! I copied it to User:TerraCyprus/infoboxgap.js. What else do I have to do to be able to use it when editing Template:Infobox_settlement/sandbox? TerraCyprus (talk) 12:26, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

TerraCyprus, Add importScript( 'User:Frietjes/infoboxgap.js' ); to User:TerraCyprus/common.js --Trialpears (talk) 12:35, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
@Trialpears: Now in User:TerraCyprus/common.js, pages reloaded. I see nothing new when in edit mode on Template:Infobox_settlement/sandbox. What next? TerraCyprus (talk) 12:52, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
TerraCyprus, It's in the tools section on the left. --Trialpears (talk) 12:57, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
yes, that's correct, it should be in the tools section on the left. it will ask you where to insert the gap, and shift the numbers down for you where necessary, stopping when it reaches another gap or the end of the infobox. if there is more than one infobox (or nested infoboxes) it will gap both at the same time. there is also the 'infobox renumber' button that removes gaps (so the opposite function).

Minor updatesEdit

Good morning,

1. I think the changes at Template:Infobox company relating to |caption=, |image_caption=, and |logo_caption= are complete. That took many months for all the cases using caption to be found (at least I think it's done - there was a period where there were just a few more in the category daily and then suddenly there were 200 more one day. But I haven't seen any for a while, so I think you can fully remove |caption=. In addition to clearing up the ones where the caption was applied to the wrong image, there were many where caption was being used to display a slogan (which you know has been deprecated). Those are gone now, but of course we can't stop people from using logo_caption or image_caption for a slogan.

2. On the thumbfix script, can you add "static_image/static_image_caption" as another varient? That is the one I see most frequently that isn't handled.

Thanks for all the help. MB 14:51, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

MB, I removed |caption= from {{infobox company}} and added something to the thumb fix script, but I don't have any test cases, so I am not sure if what I added worked. Frietjes (talk) 15:09, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Season league tableEdit

Hi, I want to ask about 2017 Liga 1 table. Why did you put the table on the season league page instead of putting in separate template Template:2017 Liga 1 table like most of top 5 big world league? I'm sorry because I missed the WP:FOOTBALL talk and discussion about this. I mean it's fine for like seasons of Liga 2. Regards Wira rhea (talk) 22:33, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Wira rhea, most (if not all) of them are going to be merged with the parent articles per a discussion at WT:FOOTY. Frietjes (talk) 22:35, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Frietjes well then, thanks for the explanation. Can you provide the discussion of that consensus? I just want to read it and I can't find it anywhere. I'll help you merging the table for Indonesian football league starting from 2018 season. Wira rhea (talk) 02:02, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
Wira rhea, as far as I can tell, the discussion started in this thread and then continued at WP:TFD (e.g, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, ... interestingly, this is continually being rehashed, including this thread from today. Frietjes (talk) 13:19, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
Frietjes thanks for providing the discussion. Regards Wira rhea (talk) 14:02, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

Fb cl botEdit

I have been thinking about attempting automatic conversion of the fb cl template family to Module:Sports table and would like to hear what you think about it as you've been doing some conversions manually. What do you think the biggest issues will be? My first impression is that it's more difficult than the aircraft specs mergers but will be able to convert a larger portion of templates. --Trialpears (talk) 22:17, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Trialpears, I have been doing about 300 per week using a script to do most of the work. the script is thousands of lines long, and still requires human eyes/input. there are several things that make this a difficult task to completely automate: (1) meaningful team abbreviations (attempts in the past have ignored this and just used ONE TWO THR or AAA BBB CCC which is suboptimal) (2) point notes (the last AWB attempt completely mangled most of these or missed them when they were outside of the table) (3) result notes (the last AWD attempt either mangled or ignored these, especially hard when they appear outside of the table) (4) use of <sup>...</sup> or <ref>...</ref> or * for point notes, but not using the point note parameters (5) for team season articles, the tables should be transcluded from the parent league season or competition article. my fb.js script shows just a fraction of the complexity. I would rather just finish the conversions semi-manually, using my script. I should be done with the fb cl2 team templates in a few months. Frietjes (talk) 13:38, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
Frietjes That sounds a lot more complicated than I thought and you're making really good progress. I guess there isn't much need for making a ridiculusly complicated bot. Thank you for doing this! --Trialpears (talk) 16:16, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Template:Infobox buildingEdit

Halo! Also pinging @Plastikspork: I see we're now using OSM map locators for a lot of articles which often don't really show where the building is located in a city or region without having to click it and zoom out. I was wondering if it could be coded so that you can zoom out with the mouse without having to click it? I think you should be able to glance at the infobox and get a rough idea of where it is without having to navigate, we already have the wiki globe for the same purpose.♦ Dr. Blofeld 21:41, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

User:Dr. Blofeld, the default zoom for {{infobox building}} is set to 13, but can be changed on an article-by-article basis using |mapframe-zoom=. if you would like to change the default, you should ask at template talk:infobox building, otherwise, you can use |mapframe-zoom= to set it for a particular article. Frietjes (talk) 21:48, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. I think it should be default and allow more flexibility. I'll mention it tomorrow. Tot ziens! You are Dutch??♦ Dr. Blofeld 21:52, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

User:Dr. Blofeld, note that it may be possible to dynamically adjust the zoom without leaving the article (similar to the radio buttons for the location maps) but that would require some additional coding and would probably increase the page source size (since you would be loading more than one map with different zoom levels). to make a more serious feature addition like that, you should probably ask at template talk:Infobox mapframe, which is what makes the maps. not dutch, but did study in Belgium, and love the fries. Frietjes (talk) 21:55, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
I have a question on this. I have never really liked these OSM maps by themselves and was wondering if they could be combined with location maps - i.e. display the OSM map (probably as default) as one the radio buttons along with other location maps. That would be a quick way to see bigger areas without zooming out the OSM map (which would still work as well). Before I propose this anywhere, do you think it is feasible to implement? MB 00:53, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
Here is an example (from Infobox university) with both types of maps hacked-in rather than professionally being combined together. MB 01:19, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
User:MB, there was already a suggestion to allow for static map images in the list (see here). there is no reason why this couldn't include general objects (see Template:switcher). Frietjes (talk) 12:52, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
I'll get around to this. :-) Can you merge the name box I moved to the bottom of the page of Wuxi into the infobox in a collapisble section named "Transliterations". The length of the infobox and that combined was horrific, I'm trying to introduce a new, cleaner format.♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:24, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Infobox cabinetEdit

At Governorship of Phil Murphy , I've tried to adjust infobox cabinet w/o success.

Your help would be appreciated. Djflem (talk) 16:11, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Djflem, (1) I added |cino= and related parameters (2) yes it is customary to leave predecessors which is why there is |health 2= etc. Frietjes (talk) 16:25, 23 September 2019 (UTC)


Started getting articles like Bob Maitland in Category:Pages using infobox cyclist with atypical values for height or weight due to having fractions in height. The article hasn't changed, so some template/module must have changed? Is it correct to just remove the fraction and round to the closed inch? Do you know if there was any discussion about this? Thanks. MB 17:44, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

User:MB thank you for finding the bug in Module:Person height which has replaced the code in Template:Infobox person/height! this should be fixed now. Frietjes (talk) 18:13, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
OK, there was another error where it was something like |height=2.00 m or |height=2.000 meters. I just changed it to |height=200cm. Don't remember the article and can't find it in my contributions; the edit summary is probably just "Fixed infobox maint error". MB 18:59, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
User:MB, probably here? will see if there is a problem with that syntax. Frietjes (talk) 19:08, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

2014–15 Barnet F.C. seasonEdit

Hi Frietjes. Not sure if you're aware, but there is consensus (from many AfDs over the years) that club season articles in the Conference fail WP:NSEASONS. See the most recent AfD on one here (with several others linked). Cheers, Number 57 14:26, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

User:Number 57, there are dozens of such articles, so it would seem like a good idea to delete all of them rather than prodding them one-by-one. Frietjes (talk) 14:28, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
I hope there aren't that many, but I'll look at doing so in the next week or two. Number 57 14:36, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
User:Number 57, let me know if you want help creating a list, but you could start with look at the season directly before this one :) if that one had been deleted, I probably won't have created the one right after it. after all, finishing 8th in Conference Premier has to be less notable than finishing 1st in Conference Premier, but yet the 2013–14 article has been there since the 2013 season began. Frietjes (talk) 14:41, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
this search and then looking at matches with "season" in the title returns some interesting results, like the GAs 2008–09 York City F.C. season, 2009–10 York City F.C. season, 2010–11 York City F.C. season and 2011–12 York City F.C. season :) Frietjes (talk) 15:16, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Template:Gallery itemsEdit

Hello, I found the gallery tag produces the following structure on a page with nolines mode used, for example:

<ul class="gallery mw-gallery-nolines">
	<li class="gallerybox" style="width: 125px">
		<div style="width: 125px">
			<div class="thumb" style="width: 120px;">
			<div style="margin:0px auto;">(contains image)</div>
			<div class="gallerytext">
			<p>(contains text)</p>

That means there is additional div element covering image and caption in a li element, but I don't know how to insert this div element while I try to edit the module, can you help me? Thanks. -- Great Brightstar (talk) 16:20, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Biblioteca marcianaEdit

Hello, I noticed your notification that the Marciana template was being considered for deletion and then, after a few hours, a substantial change to the info box. I was hoping to have the time to discuss the issue and find a solution. I had actually considered using the Library template and the building template but neither would have been adequate. You've combined them which may be a step in the right direction, but some of the categories don't quite fit. "Other designers" is not appropriate for the artists involved. Also, it seems that the collection consists just of classics and Venetian history whereas these are specializations. The Marciana has a full range of books. Most importantly, the whole box is now so long that it pushes all of the images further down the page, and they no longer correspond to the relevant text. It would help if you could remove the map. As a better solution (from my perspective) would it be possible to simply have the information on the Marciana page without involving a template?Venicescapes (talk) 20:37, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

The Infobox has been redone as a part of the article page. The categories are now appropriate to the Marciana. The template can be deleted.Venicescapes (talk) 06:18, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

okay, fixed those three issues. Frietjes (talk) 14:01, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

It can work. Thank you. Should the same be done for Zecca of Venice and Loggetta del Sansovino? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Venicescapes (talkcontribs) 14:52, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Venicescapes, yes, converted. Frietjes (talk) 14:59, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Hello again. Thank you. Would it be possible to make the three infoboxes look alike? Main heading (Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana) inside the box instead of on top? Gray background only behind main heading on all three and not other headings?Venicescapes (talk) 15:27, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Venicescapes, if you want to change the styling of the headings you should request a change at Template talk:Infobox building and/or Template talk:Infobox library. changes that don't impact all the other articles are non-controversial and can be usually implemented without discussion, but changes to the box-location of the building name and colouring of the background requires discussion before changes. however, I will see if swapping the order of the infoboxes is better for you. Frietjes (talk) 16:02, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
No, the institution infobox needs to precede the building infobox. Please do not change thatVenicescapes (talk) 16:24, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Can you suppress the gray on the Loggetta and Zecca pages?Venicescapes (talk) 16:27, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Venicescapes, not without changes to {{infobox building}} which would require discussion at Template talk:Infobox building. Frietjes (talk) 16:30, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Okay. Thank you for your help.Venicescapes (talk) 16:32, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Can you please put the infobox as it was. The Library box needs to be first.Venicescapes (talk) 16:33, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
To have it as it was, can I just "undo" the last two changes?Venicescapes (talk) 16:41, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Venicescapes, you can if you want, but the library information is currently appearing first and it has the gray headers as you requested. Frietjes (talk) 16:42, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Please let me know if you're spending too much time on this. The upper part looks great. Please don't alter it. If I understand correctly, the background shading is controlled by the template. So it is not possible to "pick and choose" which lines to highlight with background color. But in an earlier version you did, there was no gray anywhere, including in the lower (building) section. Is it still possible to remove all background color? Given the impossibility to use the shading in specific areas only, it would be best if there were none.Venicescapes (talk) 17:14, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Thank you again. It's the best solution. As I now understand it, even if you insert another infobox, the basic scheme (layout and colors) is still determined by the initial infobox.

I'm currently working on a page that will require three nested building infoboxes. Are you the person I should contact in the event that I need assistance?Venicescapes (talk) 11:22, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

1990–91 Iraqi National LeagueEdit

Hi Frietjes, on the page 1990–91 Iraqi National League, the bottom three teams in the league table (Erbil, Al-Jaish, Al-Bahri) have their records listed as 0 matches, 0 wins, 0 draws, 0 losses etc. But in reality these teams each played 15 games (before withdrawing) and their matches were not annulled, they remained as part of the league table (although their W/D/L records are not known). So on the table it should be listed as 15 games played (not 0) and the other fields should just be blank because they are unknown. But I don't know how to implement this with the current template, can you assist? Hashim-afc (talk) 20:57, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Hashim-afc, okay, I added an option to override the number of matches in these cases like this. Frietjes (talk) 13:39, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
