RFC on tennis player Andy Murray (Scottish/British)[edit]

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.

Medals table template[edit]

{{Medals table}} has just recently created so the total numbers of medal could be computed automatically. Suggestion for improvement is really appreciated on its talk page. Hddty. (talk) 06:07, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

It has been proposed that the old medal table templates be deprecated in favor of the new one. Please contribute to the discussion if you wish. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:39, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Spyridon Louis[edit]

The IOC now recognises the Eswatini Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association as the NOC for Eswatini (Swaziland) - The NOC code remains SWZ, and three athletes are competing in Buenos Aires under 'Eswatini' - (talk) 14:30, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Should we move every article with "Congo" to "Republic of the Congo"? Example Congo at the Olympics. Hddty. (talk) 09:27, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Template:Events at the xx Olympics, links[edit]

So recently links to Chronological summary, medal table and medal winners [1][2][3][4] were added to post 2014 Olympic templates, also to all similar Youth Olympic templates. These links are not to actual events (=redundant) and I don't really see a point to add these. What do you think? All these templates can be found at cat1/cat2. --Pelmeen10 (talk) 13:47, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Support the addition of the links. The main content of the articles like "Sport at the YYYY Games" is a medal table and list of medalists. So, the navboxes have the links to medal tables in the individual sports and finally should be linked to the "total medal table" and "summary list of all medallists". Nothing bad to have the "summary" links at the bottom of the page. (talk) 13:59, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
    • Obviously you support this if you were the person who added the links in the first place. There are lots of related articles if you look at {{2014 Winter Olympics}}, {{2016 Summer Olympics}} etc. Why did you choose those? --Pelmeen10 (talk) 15:12, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
      • I am for addition because they contain the summary medal tables (or summary list of medal winners) similar to the pages about individual sports at the games. Navigation between medal tables in sports and total medal table in games is useful. (talk) 15:40, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Remove the links they don't link to the pages and are redundant. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 14:34, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

WP:RM discussion at Talk:Diving[edit]

A move discussion at Talk:Diving regarding the re-naming or re-purposing of that page may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. power~enwiki (π, ν) 02:34, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Featured quality source review RFC[edit]

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:52, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
