2014


  • October 30th, 2014 - We reorganized the main page and added content links to the sidebar. Also new is we adjusted the view settings for mobile devices to hopefully render better for tablet and mobile users.

2013

  • September 3rd, 2013 We've found an efficient way of blocking spam user bots which will require you to give a short 50 word biography upon creation of a user account. This will give users viewing your edits and contributions a chance to know your basketball background. If anyone encounters any errors or bugs, please contact admin@basketballwiki.net. Thank you!
  • August 28th, 2013 - As more steps are taken to combat spam, write access is currently restricted for new user accounts. If you are interested in activating write access to the wiki and contributing to our effort to catalog basketball information, send an email to admin@basketballwiki.net and we will activate you! Thank you.
  • May 16th, 2013 - Took about 8 weeks off from updating the site (personally) after the end of the season. The playoffs and the long grind of the season can be grueling and I think it's healthy for both coaches and players to get a little R&R in the Spring. With that said, I've cleaned out the spam that seeped through and will resume adding content as we get into the summer. For most programs things will be starting up in a month or even less! Remember, if you would like to be a BasketballWiki contributor all you have to do is sign up! Have a great Spring!
  • February 18th, 2013 - Most of the bugs from the server upgrade should be fixed! Please leave us a note in the forums if you see anything strange. We've also added comment sections to the bottom of every Wiki page that will allow you to join the conversation from Facebook, Twitter, and a variety of other social options!
  • February 15th, 2013 - Over the next couple of days we will be upgrading our server software, we appreciate your patience with any bugs that may arise!
  • February 5th, 2013 - I can't believe how fast this basketball season has gone! This time next year I'm hoping to have a much more comprehensive amount of data to share with you all as these past few months have gone heavily into design and structure. We hope the season has gone well for you and enjoy the conference tournaments/playoffs!

2012

  • December 22nd, 2012 - Site updates will slow down a little around the holidays with family and basketball mid-season craziness! From the BasketballWiki.Net staff we wish everyone a happy holiday!
  • November 21st, 2012 - The placement of a image prompt on our User Creation page has seemed to curb unwanted creation of spam accounts.
