Image[edit]

Is there any type of main image anyone can get for this to make this look similar to the other pages of the Olympic Games?

A program cover, official logo, etc.?

I'm shaky about the legality of uploading images.

Why no Germans?[edit]

Why didn't any Germans turn up? Amirada (talk) 17:43, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

They weren't invited by the organizing committee. Andrwsc (talk) 17:48, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:1924w.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:1924w.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Athletes participating[edit]

were they all men?--24.13.169.19 (talk) 02:52, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

No. Figures skating had both Women's and Mixed Couples events. Among other female participants was Sonja Henie. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 04:06, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Events in how many sports[edit]

I just reverted an edit which had stated 16 events in 9 sports, and was changed to 6 sports. For whatever reason, that doesn't appear to be affecting the actual output in the infobox, but I also note that further in the article it describes the games as 7 sports. I gather there is a distinction between sport and discipline which which wasn't obvious to me, but there appears to be remaining confusion. Can someone clear it up? Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 19:12, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Ah. Some confusion cleared up - the "events" field in the infobox is entirely ignored, because the template Template:Infobox_Olympic_games/events has its own table of values for each year. So the edit I backed out had no effect. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 21:37, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
6 sports: Bobsleigh, Curling, Ice hockey, Military patrol, Skating (divided into 2 disciplenes: Figure skating, Speed skating), Skiing (divided into 3 disciplenes: Cross-country skiing, Nordic combined, Ski jumping). So 9 disciplines in all.--Nitobus (talk) 21:50, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
