Style guide[change | change source]

Wikilinking[change | change source]

As per the manual of style entry on linking, years should not be linked as they do not provide much benefit to the user. Linking of other entries is discouraged as most of these links will present themselves in the article's introduction; linking them in the infobox adds clutter and inhibits the speedy retrieval of facts.

Nationality icons[change | change source]

The use of full country templates (for example {{ESP}} making  Spain) adds a lot of clutter to the box. Instead, use a simple flagicon before names to indicate nationality. So, instead of

  • Eddy Merckx  Belgium, (Eddy Merckx {{BEL}}), use
  • Belgium Eddy Merckx ({{flagicon|BEL}} Eddy Merckx)
