Peter Myers (basketball)Edit

While creating Ray Hall (basketball), I stumbled across the 1988 CBA All-star team. I assume this is the Pete Myers who was a CBA all-star. Please confirm.-TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 13:02, 4 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, it was the Pete Myers who later played for the Bulls. Rikster2 (talk) 13:09, 4 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project-independent quality assessmentsEdit

Quality assessments are used by Wikipedia editors to rate the quality of articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project decides to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

Serbia women's national basketball teamEdit

I'm not interested in editwarring with anons, but there's one logged out user (probably User:Adelbeighou, who probably was another user blocked years ago, User:Gagibgd?) who's adding Yugoslavian achievements with the opinion that Serbia is the inheritor of Yugoslavia. It is not right in any possible way. It seems to some Serbian editors it's: Step1 - add or combine SCG (Serbia and Montenegro) results and achievents to reflect their Serbian; Step2 - do the same with Yugoslavia. Do this to as many articles as possible and repeat tirelessly no matter if they are always reverted. Pelmeen10 (talk) 22:44, 19 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help with college stats tableEdit

Ray Hall (basketball) will hit the main page (DYK section) in about 10 hours without a college stats table and Matt Hicks (basketball) will follow a day later. At Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College Basketball#College stat tables needed for upcoming DYKs, I asked for help with college stats tables. Feel free to help out.-TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 13:45, 21 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A couple of requested movesEdit

Just so y'all know, I requested Karaliaus Mindaugo taurė to be moved to King Mindaugas Cup and Karaliaus Mindaugo taurė MVP to be moved to King Mindaugas Cup MVP per WP:ENGLISHNAME. Thought y'all might be interested in it as both of these articles are covered under Wikiproject Basketball. -- Shadow of the Starlit Sky 23:25, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The 'Basketball in China' page 90% about the NBA in China.Edit

Either it should be renamed, or information about basketball in China (besides the NBA) integrated. 2A00:23C7:BB01:5601:512E:3F9:D183:2F35 (talk) 21:21, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Overtime Elite in infoboxEdit

What do others think about Overtime Elite teams going in the infobox? JTtheOG did so at Alexandre Sarr [1]. The league is called "professional", but is it really on the level of regular leagues around the world? Are their teams really that notable? It is that the league is notable but the teams are just in-house and it's more like an institute or academy? DaHuzyBru (talk) 12:20, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As it is only for 16-20 years old, isn't this basically an Under-20 league? Alvaldi (talk) 13:11, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The majority of Overtime Elite page was written by one of its employees and it reads like an advertisement. So no, they can write whatever they want but it does not look like a professional league. – sbaio 15:21, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hey, everyone. I was simply following what has already been live for months on infoboxes at pages such as Dominick Barlow, Ausar Thompson, Amen Thompson, Robert Dillingham and Jean Montero. To me, it seems natural to put the team names they actually play for, in spite of how silly they might look in the infobox. As for Overtime Elite, the league seems to be paying a minimum salary of $100,000 plus signing bonus and benefits. Throw in the genuinely world-class staff and facilities, and it's hard to argue that it's not a pro league. Let me know what you guys think here.
