Google Doodle/Wikipedia On this day mention, semi-protection/pending changes protection necessary?[edit]

The topic gets featured as today's Google Doodle and Wikipedia's On This day. Semiprotection/pending changes protection is a must hence its timing, nature, importance and is a featured article on Wikipedia. Ryan (talk) 04:23, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

FOLLOW-UP: I guess the administrators agree as the article is semi-protected just now Ryan (talk) 04:28, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

"at the Kallithea"[edit]

In the "Venues" section we're told that the fencing events were held "at the Zappeion" (which makes sense, since it is a building), but that the sport shooting events were held "at the Kallithea" (which doesn't, since Kallithea is simply a district of Athens). This should presumably be changed to "at Kallithea" (as later on in the article), so I've done so ("in Kallithea" would in fact be even better English). This error may be due to the fact that the Greek words for "in Kallithea" (στην Καλλιθέα) literally mean "in the Kallithea", which suggests that the article was written, unedited, by a native Greek-speaker.188.230.240.75 (talk) 12:49, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
