Comments[edit]

Hi there.

Is this a good idea, do you think?

I like the idea but probably not worth the effort since these scores are static and will never change. Might be a better idea to bring it to the main talk page as people who know template stuff better than me might be able to chime in if its worth it. -Djsasso (talk) 19:23, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
It may be rather static for most of the time, but it'll save much space in some pages. The "Ice hockey at the 2006 Winter Olympics" page is currently at around 87kB. Every time that page is edited, that much space is stored again. This template saves around 900 bytes for each game, and there were 38 games - in the men's tournament alone. The size of IH@2006WO could be halved - or more. Each team also played a number of games. Those pages will benefit too. In addition, there will be more Olympic Games, and thus a lot more space to save in the future. The lesser maintenance effort could be considered as a minor bonus. Thanks for your encouraging comment. LarRan (talk) 19:53, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Yup like I said I think its a good idea, its just alot of work, so if you want to do it be sure you are willing to put in the effort because I don't think many others will want to lol. Human nature to be lazy. ;) -Djsasso (talk) 20:20, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
