From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
Scope of article
- My intent was to have only a brief history sketch within this article, but to cover some of the issues (mentioned in the lede) in some depth, as well as the current state and status of the Games. I had also thought that there might be separate articles on each of the games (1984 Summer Olympic Games, for example) and that would serve as a history. Given that, I don't see the function for separate Summer Games and Winter Games articles.
- Then there is also the question of how to organize the medal tables (i.e., tables of medal winners. See, for example, http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/User:James_F._Perry/Draft, which is a sample medal table (Olympic Games medalists in the cycling time trial (women)). Also, as long as you're here, that table could perhaps be usefully templated as there might eventually be over a thousand such tables (not just for the Olympics). I don't know how to do that given that there are standard column headings but a variable number of rows. And, Peirce is right, the years should be bolded.
