New category?Edit

I've seen a category titled Articles needing attention, and in the subcategories, saw baseball, football, NBA, and NFL have them, but not College basketball. I've come across some team articles that were not finished and the only thing I could have thought of was to list them as NA so I could find them to work on them at a later time. Would it be any more productive if we added one, so it would be a little easier to find said articles? Brian (talk) 01:30, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Also with adding this category, it's also possible to edit Template:WikiProject College Basketball/doc to include a section attention=, when yes is selected, it will populate the new category for articles needing attention. Does anyone object to doing this? Brian (talk) 22:53, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
In theory, you could look at the class rating and determine it's state of being "finished". How do other projects determine what gets marked as needing "attention" (and do project editors know how to monitor it)?—Bagumba (talk) 01:27, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
They do not specify why an article would be placed as needing attention, some are not referenced, some need rewrites, but surely something could be entered into the assessment department page so it could be clearly understood. Mostly, one's I am thinking should be added are pages that are not "complete" and lack ANY sources at all. Ex: Eastern Michigan and San Diego State. In looking at the class rating, some of the one's I have seen were marked Start, Stub, or nothing at all. So it's daunting to look for them (20,000 of CBB articles, almost 50%, are listed as Start or Stub), find them, and then actually remembering where they all were once someone decided to take up the task of cleaning them up. Not saying I wouldn't clean them up and finish them, but I'm on a self mission to get the project down to nearly zero unassessed articles. This tool is also useful as well; https://bambots.brucemyers.com/cwb/bycat/College_Basketball.html which is a cleanup listing for project pages. Brian (talk) 19:52, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Template updateEdit

Is anyone able to update the College athlete recruit entry template coding to when the Scout.com parameter for star ranking is left blank, nothing shows up in the final product? Currently it shows “NA”. Scout doesn’t do recruiting anymore but if we code it to show nothing if it’s left blank (similar to the 40 yard dash parameter) it will allow there not to be any issues on pages that do list something in that parameter.--Rockchalk717 23:59, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Two month virtual editathon on Women in SportsEdit

WikiProject Women in Red is devoting the next two months (July and August) to a virtual editathon on Women in Sports. Please take this opportunity to write more articles about women in basketball who lag far behind men on Wikipedia.--Ipigott (talk) 07:13, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

This would be a good opportunity to start next seasons articles for WBB. It's already falling behind the men in yearly team article creations. I'll try my best to get started helping with this soon. Mjs32193 (talk) 20:59, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
