Maha Kumbh Mela on 10 February 2013Edit

This January 2017 version says An estimated 30 million people bathed at the Triveni Sangam in Allahabad, India for the Maha Kumbh Mela on 10 February 2013 and it has three sources, but it is removed in the current version. What was the reason for removal? Pahlevun (talk) 18:25, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Two sources were tagged as being possibly unreliable. The other one just says 30 million bathed in one day, not that they were all gathered at one time. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 19:44, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks ror reply. I found this Reuters piece that calls it "the world’s largest temporary gathering of people". Pahlevun (talk) 20:03, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Add it but only with that source not the ones from the January 2017 version. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 20:53, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

50 million in 2017?Edit

The figure includes "14 million Iranians", which contradicts with the 2.3 million reported by the Iranian government. Pahlevun (talk) 19:34, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Criteria: Multi-day events?Edit

Is this list meant to cover multi-day events? There are several inconsistencies here. E.g. the 60-80 million attendance for the Haridwar Kumbh Mela is definitely not for a single day (the next entry -- Allahabad Kumbh Mela) is for a single day -- the multi-day figure for this event would be ~120 million. Aalmi Ijtema Aurangabad is also a 3-day event. Also, the lead image -- File:Annual human migration world map.svg -- shows Chunyun, which is neither a single-day, nor a single-place event. utcursch | talk 00:28, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

This list could technically cover multi-day events however is not about the number of event attendees whether at a day or multiple but in a location at a single point in time. Please help fix inconsistencies. --Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 19:59, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
This seems like a great thing to add to the intro paragraph of the article. I think this would help people add in the correct information and standardize the type of event and number of participants.TheStranger616 (talk) 19:09, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Toronto Raptors victory paradeEdit

Over 2 million estimated to be in attendance. We should probably wait until there's an official estimate to add this to the article. AdA&D 13:44, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
