Marathon Medal Table for 2008 Paralympics[edit]

The total number of medals for Great Britain does not tally with the gold/silver/bronze medals listed. Unable to establish where the mistake is to edit it myself.

Spanish 1980 flag[edit]

Spain Olympic Flag 1980.svg

Regarding this edit and the given image – these were added in 2012 and the image was self-made by that editor (@Orange Tuesday:). I can't find any indication that this was used at the 1980 Olympics. It seems strange that Spain would use a different flag from the other Olympic boycott nations and it not be documented. FYI - this is the official Spain NOC flag, so can be used on that article, but should it be removed from the template pending sourced confirmation? SFB 18:33, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Please help to find reliable sources to confirm if these individuals are alive or dead, or correct any mis-categorization on the relevant foreign-language article(s). Please see WP:LIVINGDEAD for more info and raise any issues on the talkpage. Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 08:51, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

I've checked through for all of the names and killed off three. Some more may be lying in this Journal of Olympic History link (up to June 2003). Foreign sources may well be required for the rest. SFB 10:26, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
I did much the same and some googling. Epaminondas Samartzidis was already dead but not noted. Nebojša Popović is also the name of an Olympic basketball player. The basketball player died in 2001, perhaps attributed to the wrong person on the other wiki. Tatyana Veinberga does not show up in sports-reference (at all) as a member of the team. There was a governor of Tula who also bears the name of Vladimir Sevryugin who died, again possibly the wrong name attribution though what little I can get out of Cyrillic the Russian wikipedia does not show a date of death, just a question mark.

Looking back though the Slovenian edit history, it was an error on the Popović article with confusion with the basketball player. I've scratched this one. SFB 19:21, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for everyone's help with this. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 10:32, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Olympics At Wikimania 2014 (updated version)[edit]

Please note: This is an updated version of a previous post.

Project Leaflet WikiProject Medicine back and front v1.png

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

The deadline for submissions is 1st July 2014

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:
