Mid-season transfers edit

Are there any objections to adding a new section to the Player Transfers section of season articles to list mid-season transfers separately, similar to players who are loaned out to other clubs? It would avoid some of the confusion with the existing format, like having to list a player as departing in 2024 even if they left in the first few rounds of 2023. Would also help with players like Fa'amanu Brown who started 2023 at one club, switched mid-season, and is now set to head to a 3rd next year.

Personally I think the squad tables in articles needs looking at. I do t think they’re great to look at. I don’t think there’s really any need for a transfer section when this should be included in clubs season articles Northern Wonder (talk) 12:20, 12 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think the transfer list definitely has a place since its much simpler than having to check 17 different pages per season. Some team-specific seasons don't even have articles, the 2022 NRL season for instance is missing four. PhinsUp23 (talk) 12:39, 12 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah there are lots of club season articles that need creating. The transfer section in club articles is only for the current season though Northern Wonder (talk) 14:30, 12 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If the club articles have been regularly updated and referenced, then the history/old revisions can be used to retrieve the squad and transfer information from previous years if/when articles on the club seasons are created. EdwardUK (talk) 18:34, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, not at all, the more information the better (providing it doesn't become too much to not easily read). Agree with @Northern Wonder's point re transfers are much better suited to club season's articles, but this would result in a lot of lost information as what @PhinsUp23 said re the vast majority of club season's articles don't exist.

Are transfers notable information in relation to a whole season of a league? Transfers are relevant to a club's season (and the article on the player), not the league season. The absence of club's season articles is not a reason to throw the information into another article just because that article exists and another doesn't.

Watchlist edit

I tried the watchlist link on the main page for this project and found that it is broken because the tool it used stopped working several years ago. However, Wikipedia:WikiProject Yorkshire has an alternative method for creating a watchlist and as a participant in that project I find this helpful for monitoring for errors and disruptive edits as well as for noting changes that could be useful for improving other similar articles. Their watchlist works by using Special:RecentChangesLinked with a set of wikiproject sub-pages that list all the articles that have been tagged by the project and I think it should be possible to set up something similar for Rugby league.

Done – the link to the watchlist has been updated EdwardUK (talk) 01:41, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Super League season articles edit

Is it time we ditched the roman numerals format and just used 2024 Super League season as the main article title, per WP:UCRN? Compare "Super League XXIX" with "2024 Super League", and the latter generates far more search results, and I am not sure they are even used for the official name anymore, as I can't find any mention of "XXIX" on the Super League's own website.

Seems sensible to me. Nthep (talk) 10:32, 9 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have created a RM proposal here. J Mo 101 (talk) 09:38, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
