Wikipedia:WikiProject Figure Skating


WikiProject Figure Skating is a collaborative project formed to foster better articles on the sport of figure skating, including its disciplines, competitors, competitions, ice shows, and any related articles with a spirit of co-operation. We were created on May 23, 2006. For more significant dates, see our Project timeline.

If you feel that you can have a positive contribution to the project, become a member by joining the list of members. If you don’t know what to write or where to begin, or if you have doubts or ideas on how to improve an article, please address the project’s discussion forum. Have you recently created a figure skating-related article? Tell us in the Announcements section!

The project primarily aims to
  • create and improve articles related to the sport of figure skating.
  • set up consistent structural and graphical layouts for displaying data on figure skating-related articles.
Getting started on an article
  • Take a look at recently featured or good figure skating articles on the right, which meet the latest quality standards of Wikipedia, and use them as orientation for your own article regarding structure, language, and style. This also includes the formatting of images, tables, and references.
  • Read our style sheet WP:FS STYLE and use its tipps and suggestions while creating, writing, and improving the article.
  • Use the {{Infobox figure skater}} for biographical and skating-related information. For competition articles, use the {{Infobox Figure Skating Competition}}.
  • If the skater has Olympic medals, use {{MedalTableTop}} and other related templates to create a medal box.
  • If the article is not very long, tag it with a stub template.
  • Use an external link template if any apply.
  • Tag the talk page of the article with {{WikiProject Figure Skating}}.
If you are wondering where to start, consider helping with these tasks:
  • Check something off our to-do list:
Clipboard.svg Open tasks for WikiProject Figure Skating.

Edit or discuss these tasks.

  • The skater with age and season
  • The exact event (like 2013 NHK Trophy) and competition segment (SP/FS) or gala, podium etc.
  • The program with the name of the music piece and choreographer
  • The name of the costume designer (if known)
  • The name of the technical element or move shown (or starting/ending pose). Of course, we recognize that it's not always possible to identify, for example, the jump type and revolutions from just one shot, but we would ask that the user downloading the images do the best they can.
