Swimming at the Olympics
Thank you for updating the swimming pages at the 2020 Summer Olympics. I deleted some unnecessary parts, but you reverted them for a reason. Do you want to add qualification and competition format in all swimming events from the previous editions, including London 2012 and Rio 2016? Raymarcbadz (talk) 11:17, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
- Yes. -- Jonel (Speak to me) 11:18, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

- The LA84 foundation has them for all years. Here is the 1936 results volume. P. 707 (68 of this PDF) shows the weightlifting. -- Jonel (Speak to me) 12:55, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Mulit-sport and Olympic related articles are moving away from templates. If I remember correctly, during the 2018 Asian Games, I created multiple templates which were all later deleted and replaced with a new process. Instead of creating templates, each section is labelled for ex. see here . Each game section is labelled then used on the respective tournament and country pages. This process is faster and also prevents the need to create 100's of templates. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 14:11, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
- I had not seen that before. It doesn't seem to have been done with the 2016 Olympics, which is what I generally use as a base for creating older Games content and meta-content, and I'm not the only person who has started creating 2020 Olympics templates in these veins. But looking at the 2018 Asian Games field hockey example, my initial reaction is that I agree that the section approach would be better. It would especially be easier to convert old pages to the section format than the template format. Has there been a general discussion of the section vs. template format somewhere? If not, I would suggest having one to get other people's views as well. I will hold off creating templates for now. -- Jonel (Speak to me) 14:54, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
