    Hello everyone, the post-Olympic year is going to finish and a new sports year is going to start, a year with the Winter Olympic Games, the FIFA World Cup and the first Olympic Qualifications for Tokyo 2020, which hopefully you will all follow on Totallympics and more people will join us before, during and after the events. A special thank you to the 6 users who last year subscribed to the Premium Membership, allowing me to have some extra motivations during the last year when my motivations to keep up the project were a bit low. So thank you @Prashanth, @nitinsanker, @OlympicIRL, @hukbrazil, @heywoodu and @Pavlo for your gesture. Now that I have more motivations, I was able to reduce the costs of hosting the website and I am able to pay most of them with the money I receive from the ads (which is very few, but still enough to cover most of the costs), the Premium Membership and the donations are not necessary anymore and Totallympics is free for everyone again. So you are all now allowed to add your own signature in your profile, which will be shown after each of your posts. As always, everyone can help Totallympics to grow trying to get more users from his/her own nation on national forums/social networks/communities and a way to do so is to make your National Thread active (see Serbia and India, more users attract more users as everywhere around the web) and I wish in the future every national community on the forum can get bigger

    Today we celebrate Badnje veče (Christmas Eve). This is badnjak. Tradition is that housefather early in the morning cuts it and bring it into house. (In more riecent times, especially in the cities you can buy at market). You keep it through year and the one from last year burn. In front on the church lightening of badnjak is organized, too. The dinner on this day is prepared accordance with the rules of fasting. And there is one tradition for kids korinđanje (kids put on masks) or pijukanje when kids go through neigborhood and sing and ask for sweets. Tradition also varies from region to region. Srećno Bandje veče! Happy Christmas Eve!

    Froome/Sky keep embarrassing themselves. Their latest attempt for an excuse is that his kidney's were having a problem and then, *poof*, all of a sudden released all that salbutamol right before the doping test. What a coincidence!

    All the 206 Olympic NOC flags + 50 non-Olympic NOC flags have been updated both here and on the results website. Some colours were a bit "discolored", so we can say all the flags made a trip to the washing machine Some examples of before and later: Old New

    Mark said just now that he had bad experiences with wax stores and needs a team to travel with. I asked Manikala‘s manager, he said he could help out... This will be interesting! Else the skier from Costa Rica told me he might try Alpine skiing for 2022. And I was talking to a skier from Venezuela but he tried to hit on me (yes, in that way ). That got awkward really fast. The end.

    New Year but always the same old song for the prediction contests: no old results, no schedule of the new year, decisions overturned in few days (Sindo said on 2nd January that Australian Open won't have a prediction contest and now we have the contest) no planning, why work on Australian open while it would be better to open the Olympic contests (we still don't know how many they will be and what are we waiting for opening the hockey contest?) Moreover I think the choice of Australian Open is quite nonsensical because past tennis contests showed that they don't capture the interest of new people because the two brackets are big and tedious (you need a lot of time to fill them) it's necessary a lot of work for the organizer (check many results in the first week, create many predictions in the second week) the contenders have to work a lot in the second week because there are many matches and you don't know when they finish, so many matches predictions are forgotten or skipped Good luck to the contenders and to the organizer (it's nice to see tuniscof come back on predictions) for the Australian Open but I hope that this contest doesn't steal time and energy from the Olympics.

    Well, now that we are all opening up on our family issues, i feel like i can confess my past crimes too: every time in the old forum when Sindo edited a single insignificant phrasing or a space in my results posts, I always went back to it after a certain time and edited it back purely out of spite for the sheer sillyness of the situation

    I had three stops during my travel in the past two weeks, which was of course mostly focussed on visiting my best friend (who then became my girlfriend at the first stop) and seeing her biathlon competitions in the IBU Cup. I made some very nice new friends (most notably an Australian athlete and two Chilean athletes) and as always in the Alps, the landscape was beautiful. I'm not the best photographer and I just used my phone (and my main focus was on personal things instead of the landscapes and 'touristic' things), but still I'd like to show some pictures Lenzerheide, Switzerland: Livigno, Italy: Obertilliach, Austria:

    No, it's a great thread. As you say, it is a tribute to Olympians who played their part in the history of the Games. I for one think it's nice we can remember them

    The final pre-Olympic World Cup stage, where athletes can test themselves for the last time, a place where some Olympic teams will be finally decided and a place that some athletes decided to skip for the Olympic preparations. Ladies & Gentlemen, I bring you the hottest start list news for the women's sprint: Hauser and Innerhofer are the only two Austrians that remain in the team, as Zdouc and Hoffmanm were replaced by Rieder and Hartweger. Pisareva replaces Yurkevich for Belarus and Popova replaces Kadeva for Bulgaria. Seems that Canada's A Team has already returned to Canmore for the Olympic preparations, leaving Beaudry, Bankes and Moser in the start list. Zhang is replaced by Tang for China and Davidova is brought back in for the Czech Republic, replacing Johanidesova. Beilmann is brought in for Estonia after a brilliant IBU cup race as Grete Gaim says goodbye to the Olympic bid and prepares for the European Championships. Last attempt for Padial-Hernandez from Spain to score enough IBU points for the Olympics. Team Finland is small, but tough, because Mari Laukkanen joins Kaisa Makarainen and Laura Toivanen after a short absence from world cup racing. Dorin-Habert is back in the French team and Justine Braisaz is starting tomorrow after a disappointing mass start race after sickness. Another change is that sadly, Chloe Chevalier is off the team and SImon is brought in. Yet for another world cup, team Germany remains absolutely the same. Meaning that the only person that ever got a chance besides these six ladies was Karolin Horchler, whilst Dahlmeier was sick. Szoecs for Hungary is attempting to do the same thing as Hernandez. Alexia Runggaldier is finally back after a very long sickness, but that sadly means that there'll be no Karin Oberhofer Tanaka is in for Japan, replacing Mitsuhashi and Korea is bringing in their best tomorrow with Frolina, Avvakumova and Mun. As for Lithuania, Diana Rasimovičiūtė is supposedly going on a training camp for the Olympics and which is why Gabrielė Leščinskaitė is getting a start tomorrow. Hilde Fenne is back in the team for Norway, Tandrevold perhaps taking a rest/wanting to skip Antholz. Drastic changes for Team Poland as their A team is probably on a training camp, they're sending Zuk, Mitoraj, Piton and Maka to represent tomorrow. Yurlova is back for Russia, replacing Slivko and Irene Cadurisch is back after some great performances in IBU cup, replacing Aita Gasparin. Sweden is also one of the teams that sent their B team and tomorrow's starters are: Nilsson, Alifiravets, Skottheim, Andersson and Lindqvist. Vita Semerenko is back for Ukraine and joined by Abramova, as Zhurakov steps back and Pidrushina is missing after the DNF in Rupholding. Finally, USA is starting with four women and it's Reid and Dreissigacker joining Dunklee and Egan.

    This one definitely can't count for the general standings. Short notice, not complete templates, contradicting statements from prediction contest mods... It's back to the same old story from 2016 and 2017 (for which we still don't have results btw), as @Pablita very well explained in her post. There must be some rules, although they can seem harsh, they should be for the best. I don't think prediction contests on Totallympics can survive any more flops to be honest...

    Someone took the time to organize a contest, post it, users posted their predictions, and then it's cancelled. And it's not possible to let this be a stand-alone contest? That's just impossible, or what am I missing? I mean, we have an organizer, we have at least 16 participants, you really think cancelling the whole thing is better than letting these 16 people have their contest? The only one who should decide whether or not it continues is the organizer (which is tuniscof). If he wants to continue this contest and has the time to keep track of the points, for crying out loud, let the contest go ahead. This is just....no, not gonna say what I think. It's better not to.

    Thanks Sindo, I just lost interest about prediction contests by your unfair decision... Such decision like this for sure will not help to gain more people competing in the contests. Talking about number of user in the contest tell me how many more people compted in contests about World Champs in rhythmic gymnastics or Tour de France? Why these contests weren't cancelled? You said that we should focus on contests about Olympics, yes, I agree, but having contest about Australian Open will not be big obstacle, as for sure before end of Australian Open we still will not have full and official lists about competing athletes in Olympic Games. Late withdrawals is just part of this sport, people which take part in tennis contests should know that such things can happen and be prepared to updated their predictions, even if they wouldn't be able to do it missing just 2 or 3 matches it wouldn't be big detail in final standing. I recommend you open this contest again and give people some chances.

    Firstly, I want to talk about the 'regime'. I was reading some cross-country skiing threads and noticed that @heywoodu failed to post in the correct one twice. When I reloaded the page, I saw that all three cross-country threads were on the top and I thought it would be funny to poke fun at that, you know, just for shits & giggles. I made a screenshot and precisely picked an off topic thread for general discussions with the sole purpose to make a joke and now it's moved into suggestions & problems thread. You see where this is going? I was making a joke! I was not commenting on an issue of the forum, it was supposed to be simple fun, but now it's in the problem thread Secondly, in my humble opinion, editing posts of users to fit certain standards makes the user feel stupid. No one should feel like they did something wrong, just because they didn't post the right way. I remember even from old Totallympics how many times my font, the size of the letters and colours were changed for stuff like entry lists or even entering a TISC competition. There was only one blue, only one pink, only one green that could be used and if you tried anything different it was changed to be the same like the rest to have a unifying principle. If you misspelled a word in the topic, you could guarantee that it would be edited, because illiteracy would be too difficult to handle here. I know, it's cool to see everything neat and in order, but it only adds a feeling that you're always safeguarded and watched. Anyways, from my experience of all these years in Totallympics I can say that I developed a fear of opening threads. My last thread that I opened was the TISC that I hosted that had a perfect template made for the first few pages, yet I still felt stress whilst opening it Back in old TT, I remember seeing users use different tables and other stuff that I was always unable to re-create and everything would be edited to be perfect no matter how much I tried to come close to those standards. Anyways, throughout the years, I stopped trying to do anything creative here and resigned to just comment on stuff, because that's the only thing that I can do right here. Final thoughts: a forum should not be alienating its own users. I appreciate your work @Sindo and I appreciate you inviting me here all these years ago. It's not like I'm going to leave, primarily because I would miss all of the emotional ladies of this forum, but I gotta say, that I'm not as active as I used to be, because there's not that many things left to discuss for me. When biathlon season ends and TISC hasn't started yet, pretty much the only posts that I'll be able to make will be me writing about a good Lithuanian result in some thread that no one will care about Anyways, that's my two cents in this whole situation.

    The thread has been splitted into two different threads: General Discussion Thread and Politics Thread. All posts about politics have been moved into that thread. Also a National Athletes of the Year thread has been created, those posts are about sports so they are not off topic

    I've shot from a rifle once, but never in my life had I ever been on skis. Heck, if 2022 doesn't work out, we can always try Curling for Africa. There has been more than several occasions in which I held a broom

    First pick is a izzy one, I guess just because it´s the best sport ! Long live to Canada for the best invention in the history of humanity : Ice Hockey !!! For my number 2 Ski Jumping, because I love this sport since my childhood and I´m very sad this fabulous sport is dead in SVK for a long while now for my 3rd place it was a internal battle between Alpine Skiing, Biathlon and Nordic Combined, I chose NC because it's a beautiful and extremely demanding sport that does not deserve to end without a point in any poll but yeah, if I could, I would choose all 15. Winter Sports all the way !

    I recommend we could start put together the team rosters for major Luge nations. What I have for the moment: Italy was already mentioned here USA Singles: West, Mazdzer, Morris (M) // Britcher, Hamlin, Sweeney (W) Doubles: Mortensen/Terdiman, Krewson/Sherk Canada S: Edney, Malik, Watts (M) // Gough, Apshkrum, McRae (W) D: Walker / Snith Austria S: Egger, W. Kindl, X (M, last to be decided after Lillehammer) // Prock, Platzer, Egle (W) D: Penz/Fischler, Steu/Koller Germany S: Loch, Langenhan, Ludwig (M) // Geisenberger, Eitberger, Huefner (W) D: Eggert/Benecken, Wendl/Arlt Could anyone put here some info on Latvia? Did not find anything recent on their federation site, even in Latvian Any info on the composition of the Russia / OAR team? One can know for sure that T. Ivanova will not be included due to her Olympic ban, but nothing else

    Some news about Oberhof (Whose in and whose out) So, for women's sprint we see that Austrian women seem to be healthy now as they are starting with 4 athletes instead of 1 in Annecy. Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic starting with their full teams with no real changes. Estonia swaps out Talihaerm and Lethla for Oja and Gaim (This is going to be the 1st world cup race for Gaim this season) Lehtonen back for Finland and Chloe Chevalier swapped out with Simon for France. Seems that Alexia Runggaldier is still having issues (perhaps @Gianlu33 can elaborate?) as she is not on the start list, but Italy decided to bring in Nicole Gontier. Kazakhstan's A team is back in Oberhof. 1 swap for Korea and 1 swap for Lithuania, whilst Latvia is not starting with Bendika. Norway, probably the country that has started the most athletes this season, keeps Eckhoff from Annecy and then brings back Solemdal, Fenne, Tandrevold from earlier world cups as well as introducing Kalkenberg. Hojnisz is back for Poland, whilst Starykh is swapped out with Virolainen for Russia. Slovenia starting only with Erzen as Switzerland brings back Elisa Gasparin. As @hckosice already mentioned, only Kuzmina starting for Slovakia tomorrow and for Sweden, Oeberg is swapped out with Hoegberg. And fhe final change is that USA is starting only with Dunklee and Egan tomorrow. So, dear biathlon fans, let's hope for a fun and entertaining race tomorrow, Oberhof usually delivers
