Marathon Medal Table for 2008 Paralympics
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.

Leaflet For Wikiproject Olympics At Wikimania 2014 (updated version)
Please note: This is an updated version of a previous post.
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
Requested move for Estádio do Maracanã
Medal record uniformity
Recently I have worked on many olympic athletes' articles and I have noticed that their medal record are not displayed uniformly. If you look at, for example, Michael Phelps' page, his medals are listed beginning with the earliest Olympics/World Championships, whilst at, for example, Ole Einar Bjørndalens page, they are listed beginning with the latest Olympics/WCs.
If there aren't any guidelines already put in place, we should work out some sort of consensus. Should we start with the earliest competition, or the latest? Newtonseple (talk) 03:41, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
