Tutorial Data Entry for people (players / coaches / refs)

 

You can see a profile (person: player, coach or referee; or club) is empty when certain regions appear blank. The incomplete % also gives you an idea.

In order to edit content, you must click on the "Edit" or "Editar" button.

 

 

Once in the editing page, you can observe certain fields are rquired, marked with a *. All the rest are optional, but it is important you supply as much certain information as possible. If some information is not 100%, we don't need it in our database. However, there are some exceptions that will be discusses later on.

Nombre: Name, including middle names if necessary

Apellidos: last names, as many as the persona may have

Sexo: select mascunino or femenino

Nombre Camiseta: it's the marketing name, usually the one that players put on their jerseys or the ones used by reporters to mention them. It may be totally different from the legal name, although it is not to be confused with the nickname, which there'll be another field for.

 

 

Marca: it is the sports brand the player uses. For shoes mainly. You can write the name and the system will propose brands matching with the text. If the brand does not exist, you can always create a new one. Once the brand is inputed, you may also add the seasons in which the player has been sponsored by it. "Desde" means from and "hasta" means "until". If you do not know exactly, you may not select any season.

 

 

Profile picture upload: first you must find a picture. In this section, we need pictures of head and neck only with the white background if possible. Then, as any other site, you must click to browse into your files and the select upload.

Note: in case an error pop up appear on the screen, you may proceed with the rest of the profile if you are allowed.

 

 

Two new fields will appear in which you can write down the full name + last name. This info will be displayed when you hover over the picture in the profile.

 

 

Place of birth: you may select the town in which the person was born. This field keeps no relationship with the nationality of the player, discussed later.

 

 

Apodos: the nicknames by which the person is known. These nicknames cannot be disrespectful towards the person.

 

 

Fecha de nacimiento: birthday. Día is the day of the month, Mes is the Month and Año is the Year, in four digits.

 

 

Familiares: here you can insert relatives who are also dedicated to football, that is, that have a profile. In the example of Manuel Neur, it would be OK to insert the profile of his brother Marcel, who is a referee, but it would not be accepted to input a cousin who has no profile in Drfutbol. If the cousin plays amateur and has a profile it is OK, but it is very important to preserve the privacy of each player/coach/ref personal life. We are only concerned about football.

 

 

Preferencia de tiro: is the main foot the player uses to shoot. Most are righthanded, but we must fill it only if we are 100% sure. There's always one foot better than the other. "Diestro" menas righthanded while "zurdo" means lefthanded.

 

 

Altura y peso: the height (Altura) and weight (peso) of the person. The height must be in cms and the weight in Kgs.

 

 

Página oficial del jugador: the official site of the person, if any. Fan sites do not go here.

 

 

Wikipedia link: the link to the wikipedia page, in english if available.

 

 

Facebook: the official Facebook page, not fans.

 

 

Twitter account: also the official account, as in the example: @Carles5puyol

 

 

Then there are three parts in which to add information for any person as a player (jugador), coach (entrenador) or referee (árbitro). Clicking on each title will open specific data. Once any data is inputed, the player/coach/ ref profile will be assigned to the person.

 

 

Datos como jugador

 

Información general:

Tags: cretain predefined tags will be available to assign to a player profile.

Posiciones en el campo: the positions a player has performed in so far. The main position will be selected first, followed by those in which the played has performed.

Selección: the national team the player currently plays for. Note that it may differ from the country of birth, and that once a player has a cap for a national team, he/she cannot represent any other country, even if he/she has multiply passports.

 

 

Historial de equipos: the club teams he/she has played for. By default, a player starts in a team the first of july of one year and exits the 30th of june, when the contracts expire. In case the exact dat is available it may be inserted. When an approximate date is inserted and does not represent the start or end of a season, you must click on the box "fecha orientativa". A player can only be at two teams at a time when on loan in one of them. In such periods, the checkbox "cedido" must be checked. The "dorsal" is the shirt number. If a player is the first captain of a team, you must select the option "si" in captain, otherwise, you may leave it al "no".

Note that you have to creatre a line for every combination of the elements mentioned above. For example, ia a player has been on a team 4 years, two as a captain and two not being the captain, you must create two lines. Exactly the same when a player has been on loan at a club and later joins by transfer. If a player has been on loan two consecutive years at the same club, you may leave one line only.

You may add as many lines as necessary.

Dates:

  1. Año de entrada: you must dselect the date in which the player officially joins the team. This field must always be selected, even if it is not fully accurate.

  2. Año de salida: is the date a player exits a team. If a player is on loan to another team, but still belongs to the first one, you may leave this field blank. It may also be blank when the player is currently on that team.

 

 

Special checkboxes:Jugador sin equipo: you must click it when a player is not currently with a contract with any squad, but still has not retired.

Jugador retirado: when a player has officially announced their retirement.

Datos como entrenador:

 

Historial de equipos: it works exactly as for players. You must be very carefull because coaching is a very volatile job and it is very common that coaches do not finish a season they started. Therefore, dates much be much more precise. You must select if the coach is the first or second coach. If a coach has started of as a second coach, but then promoted to first, two different lines must be created for the same team.
