    vinipereira got a reaction from Sindo in Totallympics Suggestions and Problems Thread   
    Agreed, but it seemed like there was a big problem with the word "Thread" and, honestly, I don't think it was Totallympics moderators who invented that Personally, I think the threads work in the exact same way with or without the word, so I'm gonna suggest @Sindo that it's not really necessary.
     
     
    I agree with some things (again, the diss about the results forum is unnecessary), but in most cases I think the original information posted by the users isn't deleted, but maybe modified to include some things. In the sections about the Olympic Games, for instance, you can see multiples threads in which Sindo just included a logo, but kept the info wrote by the poster in the opening post. Maybe we can all have a discussion about what's best. Personally, I like to see at least the logo of the competition in the first post (there have been some cases in which even the users have asked us to include a logo), because it gives a general feel about the competition. I agree that every single thing doesn't need to have the same format, but some direction might be necessary to avoid turn things messy.

    - Agreed, but I feel the word "Thread" is mostly used in general threads, like "Music Thread", "Movies Thread" or whatever, which is quite common in some other places (like skycrapercity, for instance). I don't see what's the big problem with the word, it's fine with it, and it's fine without it. Maybe it should be deleted if you guys are so pissed by it.
     
    - You suggest a link to an official site, but then goes on about how users don't want to click on links - which seems, to me, a diss on the results forum. Honestly, when the "format" for Opening posts was discussed, it was decided that it was just better a simple image and maybe the link for the results site (and, sometimes, just the image), because we didn't want a format for shedules or anything else - it would be just more work that frankly most users don't want to do. But people are free to post whatever they want, including a schedule like you did in some threads.
     
    - If the news are, ideed, "big", no problem whatsoever.
     
    - Maybe there are a few changes, but I almost never see threads getting deleted. For instance, I never deleted one thread on this site (except for spam threads). So people are welcome to open more threads. Someone said that wanted to open something about history of sports and that's great, as it is to open threads about "personal projects" etc. You talk about a "strict format", but we don't have a format for Non-Olympic section and some others - as far as I'm concerned, the "format" can be seen only in some general and competition threads.

    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

    Maybe they can also win one of the long distance events in Athletics, but probably they will end with the least amount of gold medals won by a host nation in quite some time.

    And Mexico added Basque Pelota (4 events), while Canada added Women's Baseball.
     
    I don't know if they are good, but the sport is popular in that country, so maybe they're expecting a medal. Remember Peru is far from being competitive even at this level.
     
    I think they're expecting gold in Men's Singles squash, plus some outside chances in Karate and Surf.

    So Peru chose this? Didn't know they were good in Bodybuilding.
     
    I remember Brazil went with Futsal in 2007 which was a good choice (gold), but it was only ONE event.

    Peru chose Basque pelota and bodybuilding. However, surfing was their primary choice, but that was auto added because of its addition to Tokyo 2020.
    Canada didn't choose a sport in 2015, but rather a event (women's baseball), which has been dropped from Lima 2019.

    Water skiing is actually a cool sport, I got to experience it live in 2015 at the Pan American Games. Canada usually does well as well, so that doesn't hurt
     
    For 2019, women will compete in wakeboarding for the first time.
     
    As for bodybuilding it is only 2 events (one men and one women, 16 athletes each). Nothing like in the Asian Games where they had 10 weight categories.

    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

    In steps
     
    First I had a Brazilian girlfriend, who later became my ex-girlfriend. Then it was time for the Winter Olympics of 2010 and on the biggest Dutch forum, every year there is the 'support an exotic nation' thread (which I introduced here on Totallympics last year), so naturally I chose Brazil. I did so again for 2014, this time asking athlete Leandro Ribela a couple of questions. A year later I did that again, since he had quite an interesting project ot help children from the favelas (Ski na Rua - ski on the street), I published that on a Dutch website, he posted it on his Facebook and this new Brazilian biathlete (Bruna Moura) suddenly DM'ed me asking if I was an athlete or a fan. That led to her being without a doubt my best friend in the world now, almost 3 years later
     
    And since the other young Brazilian biathlete is her best friend (together with me now  ) and they absolutely always hang out together wherever they can, I'm now friends with both of them and whenever I visit them for a competition (this is the 3rd time) we mostly hang out together with the three of us
