Participating countries[edit]

Could we please have a map showing all the countries and territories that are taking part in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in line with previous Maps that been placed on pages for previous Commonwealth Games to show which parts of the world are taking part, all that needs to be done is take out The Gambia from the 2010 map and that should be about right, thanks (90.207.53.225 (talk) 21:05, 20 July 2014 (UTC))

I have added a map onto the sectio but it's from the 2010 Delhi Games through the only modifications is needed to the map is to just to remove The Gambia and change the location from Delhi to Glasgow otherwise that is correct map showing all the countries and territories taking part in the 2014 Games!

Isn't anyone going to update the map I would have thought it would have been done by now? (90.207.161.97 (talk) 17:13, 2 August 2014 (UTC))

Thank you for creating the map but the location is not centred on Glasgow so please can it be changed so it is correct! (90.207.161.97 (talk) 14:09, 3 August 2014 (UTC))

I placed it as close as I could given my knowledge of the area and the resolution of the map. If someone else can place it closer I'd love that. @90.207.161.97, Please remember that we are all volunteers here. There is no deadline. Zell Faze (talk) 23:40, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Complaints[edit]

I notice that we now have two complaints added to the article, neither appears to be particularly notable in the big scheme of things. Perhaps we should have a list of "Compliments" to balance it out or just delete them as undue weight. MilborneOne (talk) 11:10, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

I have deleted it. These sections are unacceptable. They purely attract negative POV, which is obviously not what we want. I believe WP:CRITS addresses this perfectly. HiLo48 (talk) 11:13, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Medal table[edit]

This section is poorly edited and repeats the ranking structure regarding the medal's value. Panhead2014 (talk) 23:26, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Sorry cant make sense of your point, you need to explain better what you are on about, thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 18:23, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

It's okay, I removed the repetition. Panhead2014 (talk) 23:47, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
