Review of revision 4379880 [Passed][edit]

from one source “Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez” (Mourinho’s comment) — however, back in 2016, we had discussed to search for player name in archives in case information is not available in sources. In this case: “Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez“ from a Copa America article. (talk) 08:00, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
I recall you've advocated for it, but I don't think it's fair to ask reviewers to go searching for information that should be provided by the article. If a reviewer chooses to do so, on their own initiative, that's above-and-beyond their reasonable responsibility. One of the objectives of a reporter should be to reduce the burden on the reviewer by making it as easy as possible to find everything, and surreptitious searches like that, even if a reviewer chooses to do them, increase not only the reviewer effort but, more importantly I think, the complexlity of the review task. --Pi zero (talk) 12:24, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
I understand that. But sometimes, (and this has happened lot of times), sources would remove the information. This time it was not; but generally, instead of searching outside, one should search inside (where content was checked) if you might have noticed, I try to add small, yet crucial information to the articles — like cannabis legalisation promise of Justin Trudeau. It is helpful, yes. I have written football articles after a long hiatus, otherwise, since you were the only reviewer, I would not have let you forget about those players. :-P (talk) 12:43, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
