The 1000 Destubbing Challenge[edit]

Would anybody be interested in a Wikipedia:WikiProject American football/The 1000 Destubbing Challenge to see 1000 American football-related articles destubbed? Not a contest but it might be something which works to help improve existing content. If there is more than five people interested I'll create it.† Encyclopædius 11:26, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Missing/broken references[edit]

I'm trying to make a dent in Category:Harv and Sfn no-target errors, and a few articles within the hockey sphere have issues that I can't fix on my own. Basically, some refs linked via {{sfn}} and {{harvnb}} and similar have missing full citations or have some other problems. You can check these instructions to have error messages enabled (Svick's script is the simplest to use, but Trappist's script is a bit more refined if you're interested in doing deeper cleanup).

In particular, the following articles could use some of your attention

The cause is often copy-pasting a short reference from another article without copy-pasting the full reference. If you can find where things were copy-pasted from, you can usually find what the full reference is.

Thanks for any help you can give! Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 15:18, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

I've taken care of the NFL season articles (and the first Clemson entry) and struck those out. Eagles 24/7 (C) 13:27, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Those were pretty easy to identify since there were all at the top of the category with similar names. Searching for "American Football" on Category:Harv and Sfn no-target errors yields ~121 results so do feel free to have a go at things. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 16:10, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
