Invitation

An important part of having an active and effective WikiProject is bringing in new participating editors. To this end, a template has been created to be added to a user's talk page in order to make them aware of our WikiProject and invite them to participate. Please, do not use this indiscriminately but only for users that are not currently participants, have not been previously invited, and that you genuinely think will be interested because of their edits or user page.

To use, enter {{subst:WikiProject Curling Invitation|~~~~}} to their user talk page. This will create a message that looks like the following(except with their username at the beginning and your username at the end):

  Hello, WikiProject Curling, from your recent edits it appears you may have an interest in curling. If you would like, you are invited to join WikiProject Curling! We are dedicated to improving and expanding curling-related articles on Wikipedia. If you are interested in helping, you can add your name to the list of participants, browse the to-do list, or weigh in on current discussions. We hope you will join us!

Article GuidelinesEdit

AssessmentEdit

MiscellaneousEdit

Hello please comment in on the current discussion about the Curling notability guidelines here Wikipedia talk:Notability (sports)#Curling guidelines way too lenient. The discussion is about how to treat non canadian curlers. While the above guidelines work for countries where curling is popular (i.e. Canada) they are likely too lenient for other countries. Please add your input. Thanks --MATThematical (talk) 19:42, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Nominated January 21 2012;

Support:

  1. Peacock28 (talk) 00:17, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
  2. -- Earl Andrew - talk 02:59, 21 January 2012 (UTC) I'll support this to get the ball going.
  3. Prayerfortheworld (talk) 02:44, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
  4. Jake Rowsell (talk) 17:54, March 22, 2013 (AST)

Comments:

  • In spite of the article's obvious importance, it is poorly written and very short. It also has few citations. Additionally, the majority of the article is simply a list of famous skips; very little is about what a skip does. Peacock28 (talk) 00:17, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Also, if we can find the time to add pages for the lead, second, and third (mate), that would be awesome! I also agree with Peacock28, it can/could be improved.......and I will try and see if I have time to work on that article. Jake Rowsell (talk) 17:56, 22 March 2013 (AST)
    • I agree. If anyone has the Russ Howard book, it has really good analysises of the various positions. I don't have it, unfortunately. -- Earl Andrew - talk 19:01, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
      • I have a Russ Howard book called Curl to Win at my house. Is that the one? Thatcurler (talk) 13:17, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
