Thanks to contributor Mark this month.
The CFLdb Statistics design refresh has started. Things are going to break and change rapidly. Constructive feedback is appreciated.
Mark Estep’s contribution of over 16,000 jersey numbers for players CFL 1946-2012 was completed in July. There are still a few missing each season for some teams (total 390), see if you can fill in any of the missing numbers. If you find any corrections or additions to what the site displays, be sure to pass those on also. If you want a different challenge, jersey numbers for pre-1946 seasons are in need of filling in. Mark promises next to contribute ORFU players and jersey numbers. ORFU players are not currently in the database, so this would be another major contribution to the benefit of interested parties.
I am also considering adding game rosters to the database, starting with most recent seasons. This would open up the opportunity for contributions to fill out the other seasons. I will keep all posted in these notes, but please, if you consider helping in this effort, contact me to discuss data format so we can reduce the effort on my part for data entry. Thanks in advance.
Send all contributions, corrections and suggestions to me via methods found on the Contact page. All contributions are credited, with more prominent credit for the largest statistics contributors on the CFLdb Statistics forthcoming contributor page. The contributor list will, therefore, reflect the true owners of the site, those that research, compile and contribute data and corrections.
