Discussion on categories concerning sportspeople by performanceEdit

There is a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Overcategorization#Sportspeople by event to increase the wording of WP:PERFCAT to include sportspeople by event (examples include Category:FIFA World Cup-winning players and Category:Summer Olympics medalists by year). If anyone has an interest in the discussion it can be found at the link above. Rikster2 (talk) 20:42, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Proposed change in sports notability policyEdit

A proposal is pending that would prohibit the creation of sports biographies unless supported by "substantial coverage in at least one non-routine source". In other words, articles supported solely by statistical databases would not be permitted, and at least one example of WP:SIGCOV would be required to be included before an article could be created. Also, article creation based on Wikiproject Guidelines would be curtailed. If you have views on this proposal, one way or the other, you can express those views at Wikipedia talk:Notability (sports)#Fram's revised proposal. Fyunck(click) (talk) 09:09, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Multiple issues on Romania...Edit

I'm writing this because I noticed worrying irregularities, at least in Romania's case, and I'd rather not tackle them myself because the subject matter is way off my area of work, so I hope someone more in the know than me will tackle these issues. So the first issue I noticed was in relation to the Romania at the 1980 Summer Olympics article. There are 5 gold medals, but 6 medalists. A team of two canoeists got a gold. This seems to create confusion, as on the Romania at the Olympics, at the medal table, on the row of the 1980 Olympics, 6 gold medals are given. And indeed, so is the case on the Romanian article on the 1980 Olympics. Further more, the Romania at the 1984 Summer Olympics article gives 20 gold medals...But in the related section there are only 19 bullet points. This...isn't right. I don't like it, it's all over the place. And this is just the gold cases, haven't yet checked bronze and silver. Ultimately, which one is it? How do we count them? Do we count by the team, or by the actual medalists? If we're strictly counting medals, I personally think that the latter would be right, meaning that Romania - and indeed many other countries - should have much more medals listed. seems that a team medal is only taken as one. So be it, but again, please, consistency. Transylvania1916 (talk) 19:40, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Without digging into the Romania issue specifically, only one team wins gold. To me, that means whether the "team" is 1 person or 10, it's only one victory and thus only gives +1 to the total. Primefac (talk) 22:53, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
It appears the 1980 list was incomplete; Sanda Toma was missing from the gold medalists. We count by the team. I'll check the 1984 list against other sources, but would imagine a similar issue exists there. -- Jonel (Speak to me) 23:31, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
(Turns out it was a different issue entirely for 1984: one of the bullet points actually covered two separate gold medals. There was a tie for first in the women's balance beam, thus two gold medals and zero silver medals were awarded in that event. Both golds went to Romania. Those are two separate medals, not team medals.) -- Jonel (Speak to me) 23:35, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
