2012 Summer Olympics[edit]

Great job with the effort, however the formatting is off a bit and I took the time to fix it. Keep trying though! Intoronto1125 (talk) 04:53, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Intoront1125.

I see the need for editing, but I do think the article is a little less accurate now though, because the rules about what happens if an NOC exceeds its allocation in qualification events have been removed. In effect, the article now says top 8 individuals win qualification places, but that's not actualy true, it's the top eight, excluding those from NOCS finishing 1-8 in the team event. That's not the same thing. Rather than have a detailed discussion on it or anything, is this maybe a place for a more detailed and separate 2010 Olympic Games - Archery - Qualification article? Mpjmcevoy (talk) 11:41, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes I think that is needed let's work on it togther. By the way the information is not lost, rather not there, because the article has not been created, I am going ahead and going to start on it. Intoronto1125 (talk) 16:20, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh and remember to indent before you post another comment keep up the great work!!. Intoronto1125 (talk) 16:21, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
no problem, be delighted to; and thanks - can i suggest that we remove words like "top 8" from the main article, and simply indicate the number of places (in that case, simply '8') that will be awarded per Noc or per event, and then in the secondary, qualification article, we set out how those places are allotted, with all the little rules? Mpjmcevoy (talk) 16:48, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
We could, but it would not correctly (at least in the tables) say what ranking you have to achieve, in this case its needed. Intoronto1125 (talk) 18:03, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
True, but the problem is that what it currently says is just wrong. It's not the top 8 who get in, it's the top 8 after a certain number of NOCs are excepted. It's better left out altogether than inaccurate. I know it's nice to have neat tables, but that's not a good enough reason to put up things that are demonstrably not right.
I'm taking out the references to 'top' because they are just not true, but i'm happy to discuss how we get infomration up that is accurate, either here, or in the companion article. Mpjmcevoy (talk) 22:08, 1 March 2011 (UTC)


Welcome![edit]

Weolcome to WP:MUSE, the Wikiproject with the coolest abbreviation ever! It's somewhat dead at the moment, but we're working on a complete revival of it, so it's good to have some fresh blood to get it active again! I'm always happy to collaborate with anyone on practically any article, so if you want help, just leave a note on my talk, or (probably a better alternative) on the WP:MUSE talk.

New coordinator[edit]

I have opened up a new discussion on WikiProject Multi-sport, about appointing a new coordinator. Please leave your thoughts there. Thank you. [1] Intoronto1125TalkContributions 03:41, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for adding field hockey game reference templates. Where did you find the information? I haven't been able to locate any information on the draw.

Getting Wikimedians to the Olympic Games[edit]

Hi. I am part of an effort to get Wikimedians access to the 2016 Summer Olympics as accredited reporters and photographers. Part of this effort includes covering the 2012 Summer Paralympics. Two Wikimedians have credentials to attend these games as reporters through Wikimedia Australia. As English Wikipedia does not allow original reporting, this is largely through Wikinews with a project page found at Wikinews:Paralympic Games. If you are interested in helping to get Wikimedians to the next Summer Olympics,I'd encourage you to assist with Wikinews efforts, and also to work on all language 2012 Summer Paralympic Wikipedia articles before, during and after the Games to demonstrate a track record of success. Thank you. --LauraHale (talk) 04:32, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
