Adding players to the SoccerWiki

Recommended Posts

Adding new Players into voting stage is one of the things on SoccerWiki that annoy me most. But why is it as it is?

Why can I only add one player to the SoccerWiki at the same time? I always have to wait until it is accepted or rejected until I can add more. And usually it even takes some time afterwards until I can add the next. I find this absurd. Also I noticed that some people apparently can add huge loads of players at the same time...and they don't necessarily have more reputation than I do...so why not me too? Or rather, why not everyone?

And when I request a change on a players club or so I sometimes have to wait months until this request has been dealt with. For this whole time I cannot add new players. That makes it even more silly and it makes me note down on Excel sheets when players Clubs have changed etc. so that maybe I can request those at a later time in or wait until I have found a bigger bunch so that this whole waiting time would be more worth it...why do they impede contributors so much? Most people just want SoccerWiki to grow, because it's a great idea, and they want to make it even more great...but it seems like the SoccerWiki Admins don't want it so much to grow...:-(

Hi Philodoof.

Im jmh_daggers on SW, one of the top scouts, i see plenty of your submissions

You can only add one player purely because there is too much being submitted. I can add up to 20 but i had admin privileges.

I still have to wait anywhere from 7 to 21 days for them to be approved into the game

I know who you are referring to, but they may have admin privileges too for specific leagues, ie user EX-YU is doing lots of Bosnian league players.

SW cannot cope with the sheer volume of submissions, there is so much data caught up and we have to wait for SW to sort it out unfortunately

I would like to complete the 3rd League in Germany, since I'm from Germany. There is still quite a bunch of players missing that have been relevent this season even though this season is getting close the end, but the way it works, makes it really tedious for me...especially since I have to restrain myself from editing other player information that is out of date and it can be hard to resist.

So they have to think about ways, how it can work out better. 

Can't they invest some time into programming stuff that would make their life easier? For example program something that inserts players automatically into the database? I.e. insert player once 10 votes have been made while at least 8 of those were pro adding this player. They also should change the form for loan players, so that you have to enter a date, when the loan will run out and a program that will return those players to their clubs automatically when that date has come. I'm sure there is more ideas we could come up with. Eventually changes like that should save a lot of time and make everything more smooth. Ideally I think the admins should only have to do less conventional changes by hand (maybe when Leagues are restructured in size or something like that) but mostly monitor and only intervene if things obviously go wrong. Then they could focus more on rating changes and other things instead if they don't have to insert all the submissions themselves.

Unfortunately it is the same for everyone, i spoke to a Dev in February and they are fully aware there are problems, but they choose to develop SM 2018, SM Crypto etc etc

Maybe make a list on the forum with all data and see if others can help you add them

The vote system was the original problem with SW, too many people abused it and created problems for years.

The loan one is a good idea, that was mooted on the old forum days when there was alot of interaction with SM about Soccerwiki
