Next Olympics...?[edit]

Does the wiki show where the next olympics will be held, I cannot find it...? (Thetechwizard21 (talk) 02:43, 1 March 2014 (UTC))

Politicized media coverage?[edit]

What is Politicized in awareness campaign over LGBT rights\Human rights\Censorship etc? much of the section seem to be over reaching and loosely tied SYN.--PLNR (talk) 17:10, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

I wrote this section. "Politicized" is not my language; this is how IOC officials Mario Pescante, Thomas Bach, and others (as well as many journalists) described the atmosphere during and leading up to the Games. "Awareness campaigns" and other forms of protest/demonstrations are banned on Olympic grounds, as per Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter. This entire section is well-referenced, including the criticism of the media coverage. --Life is like a box of chocolates (talk) 21:18, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Concerns and controversies[edit]

The Concerns and controversies section in this article is far too long. Take a look at 2008 Summer Olympics#Concerns and controversies. -- Tobby72 (talk) 12:56, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Concern regarding[edit]

Salzburg campaign leader threatened by Russian mafia

I've got a concern with this particular paragraph, as only one source is cited, which, no offense to the source, is an isolated one from a regional newspaper in Germany. As I'm not a regular Wikipedia editor I thought I'd just add a section on the Talk page about this, so that if someone else who's more experienced comes along this page, they could take action or ignore it entirely. Either way, it doesn't feel or look right. It's a rather big claim in such a small paragraph and it's not really sourced well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.96.116.166 (talk) 17:42, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Well fine. I have removed it for now. Anyone else who would like to add it back, they shall require multiple sources. OccultZone (Talk) 23:38, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi User:OccultZone, I agree that in principle strong claims require strong sources. So how many sources would you like? More than one I presume so perhaps two or three? AadaamS (talk) 15:04, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
At least 2 will work. I hope you will suggest much better headline for the section. Thanks OccultZone (Talk) 15:06, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I will try to come up with something better and I am also open to suggestions. I will reuse the Frankfurter Allgemeine source as it is the third-largest newspaper in Germany according to List of newspapers in Germany, there are not many newspapers in Germany with a better reputation as far as I know. Only Die Zeit and Süddeutsche Zeitung have a larger circulation. AadaamS (talk) 15:14, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Sure and thanks for defining credibility of the newspaper. OccultZone (Talk) 15:16, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I found this source as well: http://www.focus.de/sport/olympia-2014/andere-olympia-bewerber-unter-druck-gesetzt-russen-mafia-soll-bei-sotschi-bewerbung-geholfen-haben_id_3870510.html, by Focus (German magazine) which has a circulation of around half a million copies per month. Its English Wikipedia page doesn't say much, but there's one in german Wikipedia too: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focus. Can I re-add the paragraph if I add this source? The originator of the story was Bild am Sonntag but I didn't find an article on the bild.de website. There are other lesser german magazines which reprinted the story too, but Focus and FAZ (abbreviation for "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung") I think are among the strongest sources AadaamS (talk) 07:59, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Plus another source from austrian Wirtschaftsblatt: http://wirtschaftsblatt.at/home/life/sport/3812017/Sotschi-statt-Salzburg_War-die-Mafia-im-Spiel AadaamS (talk) 08:01, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Can be added now. Thanks a lot. OccultZone (Talk) 09:27, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

@AadaamS, OccultZone: This page only lists the major concerns/controversies - and I don't think this was major enough (especially considering there wasn't English reporting). It should be moved to Concerns and controversies at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Kirin13 (talk) 15:14, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
You should make your edit, then only I will know that what type of body you want for this article. OccultZone (Talk) 15:18, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Good. The subsection, "Politicized media coverage", looks very large as well. OccultZone (Talk) 15:25, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Since the two of you just made the decision for inclusion, I was giving the courtesy to discuss before removing the material. But since you prefer me to just go ahead, I have done so. Kirin13 (talk) 15:27, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
