Gangsta Olympics[edit]

I've heard Nagano was the southern-most Olympic venue. Can anybody confirm? Include it? Tony "Shot Put" Soprano 07:49, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

I figure you obviously mean southern-most Winter Olympic venue. ;P And whaddya know -- just looked at the latitudes for each Winter Olympics (slow day here at work), and at 36°38 N it seems to be. Next closest (south) would be Squaw Valley at 39°11 N. Drcwright 23:36, 15 December 2006 (UTC)


I suggest this article be renamed to "Nagano City," with "Nagano, Nagano" redirecting to it. You can observe a similar usage for Gaza City and especially New York City. YechielMan 21:08, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

This has been discussed many times, most recently here. The basic consensus seems to be that the move (reverse of redirects) to Nagano would be supported, but you will not find much support for Nagano City (or XYZ City for any city in Japan). Neier 08:55, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

12 March 2011 quake[edit]

Should the 2011 March 12 6.6 earthquake be mentioned in the article? (talk) 08:14, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

with all respect to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in tohoku, i don't see why it needs to be mentioned here. Especially not in the opening paragraph. --Popoi (talk) 23:51, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

I just removed that blurb. Even if there had been damage from the earthquake, it shouldn't have been in the lead paragraph to begin with. purplepumpkins (talk) 22:18, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
