Suggest merge from List of Olympic ice hockey venues to match other Olympic sport venue lists add. Chris (talk) 14:19, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Right now I find the original article (List of Olympic ice hockey venues) better. There are several reasons for this:
  • The "new" list is not sortable because rowspan is used in the first column. There are many good reasons why the list should be sorted.
  • An emdash (—) is the standard way of saying no value or not listed.
  • The old list uses correctly formated references using {{cite web}} while the new list uses an arbitrary manual referencing system which is not compatible with other references.
  • For what it is worth, the lead in the old article says somewhat more. Of course, a substantially longer lead would be much better, either way.
  • The location column (in the old article) is highly encyclopedic, as many of the venues are not located within the host city.
It is obvious that we only need a single article on the issue, and the most correct way to do this (to preserve the article history) is to add a column to the old article with the "other sports" information, and then move it to the correct naming (given that the new list has the "standard" naming; I have no preference for the order of words, as they both are logical to me).

I am following the venues format similar to that for the Olympic medalists such as List of Olympic medalists in shooting or List of Olympic medalists in luge as examples for the venues. For venue examples, see List of Olympic venues in boxing or List of Olympic venues in figure skating. I think we do need one article though. Chris (talk) 22:28, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
