My site is back online, with all the bells and whistles one would expect from a site that was designed in 2004 Laughing

Come visit here:

http://pilight.xyz/


Yes, pilight.com was available, but a bit pricey for something expected to generate no income...

Thanks for letting us know. I like seeing the pictures of the newcomers so I know what they look like in games. Much nice stuff! And I'm not saying that just because I am an impossible Dream homer.

Someone wants $3,500 for pilight.com but I don't get much in a search. There is something used with Arduino hobbyist computer boards that has that name. But I guess they only pay around $10 to $20 a year to park these domain names so they can afford to wait, and afford to have parked names that don't pan out.

Yeah, that seemed excessive for what I'm doing. If I get significant traffic then maybe I'll put on some ads and monetize, but I seriously doubt it will ever be enough to warrant paying for .com

Pilight, Just love the site. My first time I have looked at it.
Looking at the numbers you really get a sense how good the players are and where they rank in the WNBA. I am putting the site on my favorite list.

What surprised me was how good Breanna Steward is playing. She has just unbelievable rebound numbers for being a non-center. She just has outstanding jumping ability.

Wow, what a great collection of data in one place! All the prospect year-by-year career stats, all-time draft, all-time 1st Round by slot, team by team 1st Round history, all-time picks by college/country, and even a name pronunciation guide! Thanks!

One of the many things I like about this site is the Player Register feature.

Currently 895 women have played an official game in the WNBA according to Pilight's registry. This year it will break 900 and in what, 2-3 more seasons 1,000 different women will have played in the WNBA? Very cool to think about those kind of milestones.

Thanks, pilight!

Barring expansion, I would expect the league to reach 1000 players in 2021.

I'm hoping there's expansion before 2021.

All the rookies who made rosters have now appeared in games. You can check out pictures on my site, if you want to recognize them.

Date for the trade deadline in there looked wrong so I went looking for a different date, and the one here is different, but possibly still not right. Everything's in chronological order on the Key Dates list on Page 12, except for the start of camp (where 'April 2' is clearly missing a digit) and the trade deadline (where 'July 2' presumably is as well). But July 23rd would still be out of order. Oh well, I'm sure the league will openly communicate and clarify the details nearer the date, just like always...

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is the difference between the blue and the black text, for example in the player profiles? New/updated content from past editions, maybe?

I'm new to this mammoth but incredible thing and was just wondering. Very Happy

I'd guess you're right. This is the first year of the blue text.

Just looking at your newcomer's pix, Ji Su Park looks like she's about 14.

She didn't make it for Media Day, so I grabbed a pic from a Korean league. Dunno how old it is.

Working on some cosmetic changes. At least trying to get a consistent font within each page.

Not to worry, though, the site will still be plenty ugly.

Probably difficult to do without significant changes, but I'd love to be able to re-order your player register by clicking the top of the columns (so that it would then list all the birthdates in order, or group all the different nationalities together, or whatever). Just an idea for the future.

That would require an HTML editor more modern than the original Microsoft Expression, which is what I'm using. It's barely more recent than RebKell's board software.

Also, for someone to show me how to do it, My HTML skills are rudimentary at best.

Somehow I have managed to make the Player Register sortable. Also, it is updated for this year's newcomers.

Very cool, thanks.

Of course, the first thing I did was look for the Brits and sort-of-Brits. Wasn't Elizabeth Williams born in the UK as well? I feel like that's why I occasionally suggest she should play for Team GB, only to be reminded that she's probably ineligible due to her Team USA age-group participation.

There is often limited info on places of birth for rookies. Most colleges don't list them (some don't even list DOBs). It's not common for me to go back and change them even when there's new info. Wikipedia says she was born in Colchester, so I'll change it tomorrow (if I remember).

Elizabeth Williams' biography on the Duke Athletics' website states that she was "born on June 23, 1993 in Colchester, Essex, England."

Got Williams birthplace corrected

It may be worth noting that I don't dig that deep for birthplace info. Dates of birth, yes. Places of birth, not so much.

Apparently Microsoft Expression 4 doesn't like the shared border construction used when I built my site in Frontpage back in 2004.

I guess I will ask the expert on WNBA trivia. Plight, Natasha Howard is first player to win back to back championships since?

Pretty sure the answer is LeCoe Willingham, who won in 2009 with Phoenix and 2010 with Seattle
