Welcome to the South Melbourne Hellas WikiEdit

This is an unofficial wiki for all things South Melbourne Hellas also known as South Melbourne FC, South Melbourne Lakers, South Melbourne Soccer Club and South Melbourne Gunners. All Hellas fans and non-Hellas fans alike are welcome to contribute to this project. In turn, I hope it eventually inspires supporters of other clubs to begin their own projects.

I started this project several years ago with high hopes, abandoned it after only a short while, and then came back to it in early 2019. We'll see how long my interest lasts from here. My modest aims now are to add 20 new articles a week for the rest of this year, working backwards from the 2019 season which is the easiest area to work with.

The initial priorities within that scheme are making articles for all VPL/NPL players and seasons, and opponents who we have played exclusively during that time. Match articles are by and large going to be left until much later. That won't mean that there won't be things from outside that scope being done up, but the idea is to get a decent structural chunk out of the way first before we stat dealing with articles requiring more narrative detail.

What we hope to achieveEdit

Short term goals Edit

  • Create pages for most of the different types of pages we'd like to have here, with reasonably consistent templates

Medium term goals Edit

  • Make the site good: reliable stats, decent bios on players, coaches and committee members, venues, opponents etc.
  • Get someone who can make the site look better than it does now. I am not a graphic designer, and my emphasis has always been content > style. However, if we can get someone to make it look better, than why not?
  • Tentatively branch out into South Melbourne United, Hellenic, Yarra Park, Women's and every stray bit of history that we can.

Long term goals Edit

  • Build a community around the site
  • Work with other South Melbourne and Australian soccer historians to use their materials.
