Abuse from registered users of unregistered editors
As far as I know it is violation of WP policy or guideline to use your position as a registered user to unjustifiably prevent unregistered editors from making edits. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:36, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
I am not attempting to delete the template, I am merely attempting to make it a more useful version. Since that more useful version already exists under another name, this name can simply be redirected to that name.
The TfD says keep, I recognize that. I am not attempting to delete the template. I am keeping it, and also editing it to improve it (which is the whole point of WP anyway).
I agree that a redirect clearly goes against that TFD. I propose a third solution to split this template to Template:Summer Olympic sports and Template:Winter Olympic sports. This builds on my rationale of that deletion discussion, i.e. those on the main sport article are much more likely to want to look through sports which occur in the same Olympics. I can think of many situations where a user would want to go from Luge to ski jumping, and from athletics to swimming (sport), but I can't imagine it's a common desire to want to go from luge to swimming. I think this change addresses the link relevance issue which was the driver of the original deletion request. If no one objects, I'll make the move shortly. SFB 07:58, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
