    This thread is finally completed. Better late than never I guess, but I wish the para sports federations could be faster with their updates - I even emailed some of them like World Boccia, which didn't reply and just announced a provisional entry list hours ago. Anyway, the NPCs with the most athletes are:

    I have decided to keep the quadriennium as if Tokyo 2020 were held in 2020, otherwise all the counts would change. The Latest World Championships Medal Count will not be affected anyway, because there was no world championships in 2020/2021 which will not be held again before Paris 2024.

    As one of the most active National Threads on Totallympics, I would like to inform you that if you are interested I could create a sub-domain only for Greek sport fans, named like greece.totallympics.com (and where instead of greece we can put any word you prefer), with the same structure of Totallympics (sections, threads etc.).

    Hey fellow Totallympians
     
    I have an announcement to make about my role as Prediction Contest manager and the future of prediction contests. From the beginning of the next year, I would like to step down as sole Prediction Contest manager. As my time at the university is coming to and, I would like to focus more of my time on applying for job positions from the beginning of next year. Also one of the reason behind my decisions is that I have been much less active in the threads since I became Prediction Contest manager. Especially during the Olympics with five prediction contests which took most of my time during the day. I felt quite stressed during that period. But I knew the period would be short and end a couple of weeks later. For Beijing 2022 I definitely need some help, as there would probably be more predicton contests than during Tokyo. I know my life will change with more time focused on applying for a job position. Plus I have a personal life that means everything to me and I would like more time for that. 
    I plan to still be part of the prediction contest group, but I would mostly only be able to manage 1 contest per month. I would therefore like to ask if someone or more people  on the forum could be interested in being my co-manager/s from the beginning of 2022. I would guide the person/people in how to run the prediction contests. Make prediction design, etc... And by time, that person/people will take over the role as manager/s.
     
     
    I hope by getting a co-manager/s, and by time stepping more down, I will find a balance to both manage my work and private life. Also additionally, have more time to be active on this forum in other ways. My passion is athletics and I want to be more active in that thread and also have time for especially winter sports who also gives me great pleasure to follow. 
     
    In short, I would like to seek for one or more co-managers at first by the beginning of next year. If anyone is interested to become co-manager or hear more about it, you can send me a PM and we can talk about it.
     
    I hope there will be at least someone who would like to take over my role by time. I really enjoy these prediction contest and I know many really appreciate the work me and all those before me have made to make these contests possible. I hope these contests can continue to bring together the community on Totallympics. 
     
    That's all from me,
    Wumo

    Yes, but I learned to quickly see their names in the quoted posts and just stop reading and moving on.

    In 2013 (I can't believe I've been around for so long) there was a Polish user named Pavlo and he was the first person I consciously learned to ignore. Then he vanished, I think, or he changed his name here and became a better person, who knows? But ever since we got the ability to ignore some users, it's great because I can't even see when they quote me, and this makes all the difference. This has made this forum a much better place to visit, in my opinion.

    It should now work?
     
    We are going through a software update so there might be more bugs/problems in the next days, please report them here.
     
    I can already tell you the latest replies box threads will not be bolded anymore for unread threads. There was already a bug before because threads remained bolded after the first time you opened them, so they decided to remove that feature at all and no threads will be bolded now

    Sindo got a reaction from Oldira in Ireland National Thread   
    Of course I understand it. As right now you are 3 active Irish users, it would not make sense to create a sub-forum just for you. Maybe it would if one day the Irish community would grow so much that writing here in the national thread would not be enough for you anymore and you would like to have different sections and threads to talk about Irish athletes results, medal prospects etc.
     
    Also, being English your language it makes it less useful than for other nations, where they could also gather users who are not active here because they don't speak English or feel shy to write in another language.

    Copy-paste from the other thread:
     
    From the experience of Totallympics I can tell you the difficult part is the very first one, where there are few posts and few active people. When the active people will grow, more people will be interested to join. You would not start exactly from zero because you can count on the French users who are already here. You can inform about the forum in other forums with sport fans (without this become spam ), some Facebook groups and so on. And after some time people will start getting on the forum through search engines, and you can relax and enjoy the forum
     
    If it will be a "bide", it would not be such a drama. We tried, it didn't work, you will stil have the France National Thread here.
     
    Anyway, let's hear the opinion of other French users here to understand if this is something which could potentially work.

    Sindo got a reaction from justony in Totallympics after Tokyo 2020   
    Tokyo 2020 is coming to an end, I hope you enjoyed following them here in Totallympics!  I know not everything was perfect, there were some nightly downs of the forum in the first days and some posts had to be deleted because of abusive behavior by certain users, but I think this is something will always happen on a populated forum.
    As always, since tomorrow the focus will switch to Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024, we want to be the first to start following the 2024 Olympic qualifications so I hope after some days of Olympic detoxification you will all be back on Totallympics and follow sports with us!
     
    In the next weeks, there will be some little forum’s software updates which I postponed to avoid problems just before the Olympics, and we will also move on a stronger server, to avoid forum’s down during traffic’s peaks.
     
    I will also have lots of hosting space, so I have thought I can create national sub-domain forums for the nations with lots of users who think their national thread is not enough. For example, I will try to launch https://italia.totallympics.com/, where Italian fans will have their own forum, in the same format of Totallympics but only for Italian fans who can write in Italian. This will allow the Italian community to grow independently in their own forum, and I’m sure Italians who want to interact with the rest of the world will keep using the “international” Totallympics as they are doing now. The great advantage comparing to the National threads is that everything would be more organized, with sections, threads etc., just like here.
     
    I chose the Italian example because I know how and where to search for Italian fans interested in the forum. But if any of you is interested I can create other nations’ sub-domains. I will setup the forum in the same format of Totallympics, then of course I would need one person (or more) who will take care of that forum and its development. You don’t need to be skilled with information technology because dealing with the forum is really simple and I could help you, the “difficult” part would be to start a community from scratch.
     
    That’s why I am mostly thinking to nations which already have lots of users on Totallympics, but if you are a country’s single member and you know how to bring your country’s people on the national forum once this will be ready, then we can obviously give a try. I think for many countries there are Facebook groups of Olympic fans or some small Olympic forums/websites here and there, and if you can potentially “move” them on Totallympics national forum then it would be easy for your community to grow, and then more people would start joining the forum when they find it on google. It will not be easy, but it might be an exciting experience and not a lot of your time is needed for that.
     
    So if any of you is interested to be the “community manager” (this word might be exaggerated, linkedin style ) of her/his country, feel free to contact me anytime via private message and we will start talking about the plan. I will not be able to pay you for that role, but of course I would give you the hosting for free so you would have no expenses of any sort, and you can always count on my help.
     
     
    Thank you everyone who contributed here during Tokyo 2020 and get ready for the next Olympic cycle!
