    Yeah, I guess, there is not so much you can do with it sportswize.
     
     
    Yes, but that's the same problem with the other general threads here, someone which is only interested in the legacy issue might not click on a general thread about Rio Games.
     
    Besides, we could have a nice recap of every venues and what they become (yeah, that's a bit of  work)

    I don't see many racist posts here (although sometimes they do happen), but I'm positive @thiago_simoes know how to differentiate such things, especially since was him that also pointed out the problem with sexist and LGBT-phobic posts - which are just as bad. The fact that some people only took the "racist" part of his comment it's telling.

    Indeed. Comments like this have become quite common on Totallympics. In the past month we had a huge amount of misogynist and transphobic comments here.
     
    It's still better than some other sports forums/groups around the web, but I fully agree we shouldn't ignore things like these.

    We will try to work on that on the future and I agree with you something has to be improved under this point of view. But just as a reminder to every user, you can (and should) report posts if you find them racist. Even when we will have a better organized moderation team, moderators are not reading the threads 24 hours, and when you make a report a notifications will arrive to moderators and the post can be checked more quickly. I have received 3-4 reports during the World Championships and all of them have been dealt pretty quickly.
     
    Also (I am not talking to you but in general) we should differentiate between racist comments and comments made by users we can not stand. For the latest ones, you should all use the "Ignore" feature this forum allows everyone to use (apart from me, even though I would love to be able to use that function too )

    I don't really follow athletics, but as a reminder to myself in case I decide to follow it someday, I should never come close to some people discussing the results here.
     
    I've seen some sexist, LGBT-phobic, and apparently racist comments, and I'm surprised some of you just let that slip as if it's nothing. It's one thing when you are not a huge fan of such and such athlete. It's a different thing altogether when you purposely misgender people or when your remarks about someone might come off as racist.

    It's not looking for good for Brazil also, but we're pretty used with bad performances in Athletics World Championships.
     
    In the last 4 editions, only 2 medals, both by Murer. She's now a commentator for TV, and (surprisingly) good at this.

    vinipereira reacted to OlympicIRL in Winter Olympic Games 2018 Official Countdown Thread   
    As we approach the 25 weeks to go milestone until 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, it's time to open our official countdown thread here on Totallympics. Members can post here on the thread day-by-day to help build the excitement in the coming weeks as we countdown to the big event. This thread can be used to mark any milestones on the way, such as the opening of the Olympic village, tracking the arrival of delegations, the raising of our national flags in the Olympic village, news and details about the Opening Ceremony and so on.
     
    To help us countdown the days ahead, I have created an Olympic Countdown Clock depicting the 2018 Winter Olympic logo alongside the Olympic rings. The clock consists of various elements to help us mark off milestones along the way as we edge closer and closer to the Opening Ceremony on the 9th February.
     
    Firstly, the logo itself is divided into 2 elements.... the first part consisting numbers 1-24 representing the number of weeks until the official start of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. As each week passes, another coloured "block" will be added to the logo until it begins to take on it's familiar appearance.
     
    The second element consisting of the an alpha-numeric system will represent various other milestones to watch out for along the way that signify the the Games are getting closer. I will draw up a list of ideas for these milestones and I am calling on you to help with suggesting ideas for this (I am not very knowledgeable in Winter Sports). Ideas currently include:
     
     
    Key: a1 6 months to go a2 3 months to go a3 1 month to go b1 150 days to go b2 100 days to go b3 75 days to go c1 Four Hills Tournament begins c2 Hahnenkamm Race begins c3 Winter X Games begin d1 tickets go on sale d2 2018 Olympic year arrives (Jan 1st) d3 2018 Olympic Prediction Contests Open on Totallympics e1 lighting of Olympic flame in Olympia, Greece e2 Olympic flame arrives in Incheon e3 Olympic flame arrives in Gangwon province x Olympic cauldron is lit  
     
     
     
    Finally, below the official logo is a depiction that becomes active on the "50 days to go" milestone, consisting of the numbers 1-50, representing the 5 Olympic rings. As each day passes, another piece of the Olympic ring is shaded in colour until the 1 day to go milestone, after which the 5 coloured rings will be depicted in their complete form. The Countdown Clock will not be complete until the Olympic cauldron is officially lit inside the Olympic stadium on the night of the Opening Ceremony.
     
    Upon completion, the Countdown Clock should look like this......
     
     
     
     
                                       30                            30     30     30                   30 30   30   30                     30   30 30 30 30                       30 30                       30     30                   30         30

    vinipereira reacted to Dolby in Summer Olympic Games 2024 & 2028 Bid Process   
    Here is a thought: If some country feels that it wanted to bid for 2028 games and is being cheated, say it out loud. 
     
    Fact is there is not a big line of eligible cities who are interested in hosting Olympics. In Asia, big 3 (China/Japan/South Korea) already are hosting Olympics in near future. Rest (India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Middle East) have question marks on ability to host and/or are not interested. Same with Africa, South America and Eastern Europe. Australia has already said not interested. In Western Europe, German and Italian cities have potential to host but there is little public support for potential bids. So, that leaves the loser (US/France) of 2024, Spain, Canada and Mexico as only potential bids. And I am not seeing any opposition to this proposal from them. So, lets chill and enjoy 2 Olympics in cities which can host a grand event.
