Categories for clubs and for teams[edit]

What's the point in having categories for sports teams and categories for sports clubs? They mainly overlap eachother. The only teams which are not club teams I can think of, are national teams. Bandy boy (talk) 08:47, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Sport Photo[edit]

Hi everybody,

Half a dozen of french-speaking wikimedians have decided to improve illustrations of sports articles and more generally produce free content of sport events.

Wikimedia France and Wikimedia CH lend us costly photo equipment and help us to obtain accreditations.

Since the beginning of the year, 30 events have been photographed and many different sports.

We maintain a list on Wikipedia (Projet:Sport/Photo). Feel free to make suggestions ! Pyb (talk) 13:09, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride 2014, a campaign to create and improve LGBT-related content at Wikipedia and its sister projects. The campaign will take place throughout the month of June, culminating with a multinational edit-a-thon on June 21. Meetups are being held in some cities, or you can participate remotely. All constructive edits are welcome in order to contribute to Wikipedia's mission of providing quality, accurate information. Articles related to LGBT athletes may be of particular interest. You can also upload LGBT-related images by participating in Wikimedia Commons' LGBT-related photo challenge. You are encouraged to share the results of your work here. Happy editing! --Another Believer (Talk) 19:10, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Jaman Lal Sharma[edit]

Is there a sports-minded person who would be willing to add appropriate material from the above draft about an Olympic athlete to the existing stub Jaman Lal Sharma? I can help with the attribution if necessary. —Anne Delong (talk) 17:44, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/The International Sport Security Conference (ISSC)[edit]

Dear sports experts: This old AfC submission appears to be about a notable conference. I'm not sure that it's appropriate to have the names of all the speakers included. Should this be accepted into the encyclopedia, or does it still need work? —Anne Delong (talk) 01:32, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Sports At Wikimania 2014 (Updated version)[edit]

Please note: This is an updated version of a previous post that I made

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:

Hi, I just tidied up Category:Argentine sportspeople by creating Category:Argentine sports competitors and filling it with categories of Argentine players, coherently with the upper categories Category:Sportspeople (which includes coaches, players, referees etc.) and Category:Sports competitors (which only includes the players). It should be done with all the subcategories of Category:Sportspeople by nationality, like the ones in it:Categoria:Personalità dello sport per nazionalità. Could someone please provide to help with bots or just by manual edits?

Categories "NATIONALITY sportspeople" should also be moved on Wikidata, from this situation to this situation. Practically, "NATIONALITY sportspeople" (en, simple and Commons) should be replaced in the data pages with "NATIONALITY sports competitors" and connected instead with the corresponding category of it:Categoria:Personalità dello sport per nazionalità.

Thanks in advance for the help :-) --Superchilum(talk to me!) 13:46, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Category:Sports clubs / Category:Sports teams[edit]

Hi everyone. I am linking French pages with other Wikis through Wiki Data (mostly Wiki EN). But as I see that these two categories exist and there is only one article : Sport club I wonder if we could all merge ? Sincerely. Nezdek (talk) 19:01, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

They mean different things in different parts of the world. In some parts of Europe for example a sports club might have multiple sports teams in different sports. Whereas in North America the terms are used interchangeably often. Looking at our category for sports clubs it mostly encompasses groups which are not teams. -DJSasso (talk) 19:12, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Bruno Banani (luger)[edit]

Dear sports enthusiasts: This old AfC submission will soon be deleted as a stale draft. Is there anything in it that should be saved and moved to Fuahea Semi ? —Anne Delong (talk) 14:53, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
