There is an ongoing RfC to determine whether Andy Murray is a Scottish or British tennis player. Please lend a hand at the Andy Murray British tennis player or Scottish tennis player RfC. Thanks.

Infobox - Country at Games[edit]

The new infobox for (Country) at the (year) (summer/winter) Olympics is pretty. However, it still only lists either all summer games, or all winter games. I think that's a major, unnecessary, downside. Is there anything we can do to address this? -- Lejman (talk) 06:01, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

I had an RFC up for two whole months and got all of one response. And now you're interested? Primefac (talk) 20:06, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
Probably be more interest 1,200 days from now. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 17:10, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that St. Kitts and Nevis Olympic Committee be merged into Saint Kitts and Nevis at the Olympics. The latter article is not very long, and the former article is already in it. Kees08 (Talk) 15:11, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Kees08, it looks like you've already pretty much finished up the merger, so I say just be BOLD and redirect the Committee article. Primefac (talk) 15:13, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Sounds good to me, this is only my second merger. If it is simple like that, so I need to propose it at all? I was going to propose a merger of the flag bearers as well, but I would rather just do it. Kees08 (Talk) 17:50, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
If it's a relatively uncontroversial merge (like this one) then you don't need to formally propose one. If you're not sure if it should be merged or not, then it might be a decent idea to start a discussion and ping projects. Primefac (talk) 17:53, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

RFC on sports notability[edit]

An RFC has recently been started regarding a potential change to the notability guidelines for sportspeople. Please join in the conversation. Thank you. Primefac (talk) 23:08, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Olympics/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Olympics.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Olympics, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Javelin throw at the Olympics[edit]

This article: "Javelin throw at the Olympics" has a picture of Matti Järvinen of Finland off to the right hand side of the page. When clicked a larger version of the picture appears, along with a caption that claims Mr. Järvinen is throwing at the 1932 Olympic Games. In 1932 the Track and Field competitions were held in the Los Angeles Coliseum, but the photograph shown was not taken in that stadium. There are two Swedish athletes visible in the background, so it might be a Finland vs Sweden dual meet, or some other European meet from around that time. But that particular picture was not taken in the Coliseum. Thank you. Finarphin (talk) 02:23, 28 May 2017 (UTC) John Reed Finarphin (talk) 02:23, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
