Old website links[edit]

Hi Montell. In the case where old competition websites have expired (like here) you can search out an archived version of that website via Archive.org's "Wayback machine". Official websites can be very very useful for historical study. The problem is that it becomes very difficult to locate the old addresses because nobody links to them when they have been removed.

The archive machine can be immensely useful in other cases too. For example this website has all the information about the old International Cross Country Championships, should we decide to create results pages for those competitions (not readily available data!). It is a tool well worth remembering for the future. SFB 21:46, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

List of world records in masters athletics[edit]

The official list of world records is maintained at http://www.world-masters-athletics.org/records/ thus those are the official distances. Those records are maintained by Sandy Pashkin, who also maintains the American records. She approves legitimate records with military precision, meaning if every i is not dotted or every t is not crossed, she will ignore a superior performance. She does this by the hundreds, thus the permanently pending records and multiple other sites that document the failures. You probably picked up information from masterstrack.com, from one of the foremost masters track journalists, Ken Stone. I know him personally. Lots of volunteers feed him information, most of it highly researched and credible, but in this case apparently not 100% credible. There are lots of people watching over each other's shoulders, Martin Gasselsberger, Weia Reinbound, Jeff Davison, Jeff Brower, Eugene Anton and myself. We're trying to get this stuff right by the various lists that are compiled. Wikipedia is an excellent final public destination for those efforts, so I feel this list is far more accurate than the official site.

Feel free to create a list of non-standard events, though I fear this particular page is far too long to fit it on this page. Its already a slow page to load. And I didn't cover the myriad of racewalk records that should also be part of this. Instead, I suggest a separate article for that, as I intend to do for racewalk when I have the time to start something that big. Thanks for watching and all the detailed work you do with records. SFB, Pietaster, you and I seem to be the major people trying to keep out the vandals who regularly try to deface T&F information. Trackinfo (talk) 08:15, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Masters multi-event scoring is done with a conversion table. First row the actual mark is recorded, then it goes through an age-graded conversion which would normally show on a second row. That converted mark is the one that goes through the multi-event table for a score which shows on a third row. At M35, the age grading factor is small, but for an older person the conversion is much larger. So in a more extreme example, an M90 might run a 20 second 100m. That would be a zero on the normal table. But for that age, its equivalent to a 11.47 worth 759 on the decathlon table. An excel calculator is available at www.stefanwaltermann.com/Database/Model2010multiagegradescore.xls
The way I created the multi-event scores (which you might consider using for the Open records layouts) was to create a specific template per record. It forces the layout necessary for proper display of multi-events. So if you edit the template Template:Kip Janvrin M35 Record or other similar templates (the names are) embedded in the results, you can edit in the information. For brevity I left out the converted marks, obviously it takes some explanation--what they mean. Also, of note, after age 50 various hurdle heights and spacings change and implement weights change. To confuse historical results, those changes have changed, so what someone threw or jumped in the 1980's or even 90's is not what is officially done in that same age group now. Most are easier now, lighter weights, lower hurdles, closer together. That has resulted in many superior, old records being invalidated--or left permanently pending as I have posted them.

I'm going to go further than just sending a backatcha. I am constantly going through the nit-picky details of wikipedia postings of athletic records. Without fail, Montell74 has already been on the page, fixed the page and will be watching to correct any edits I make. This is the kind of cooperation that makes wikipedia great. I don't know who he is, but he shares the same passion for correctness that I do--a passion thousands, perhaps millions of other fanatics might share. But they are only the readers, the beneficiaries of the information posted here. Editing takes work, those readers don't appreciate. We don't always agree, but out of the edit note discussions, I think everyone wins. Of course, there are several of us who have to watch these highly visible articles, because they seem to attract the loonies of the world. Several times a day, someone thinks they can insert their name into a claim for a prestigious world record. Who is there correcting and protecting the truth? Most of the time, it is Montell 74. His diligence is certainly respected by me and I would say vicariously by the people who care about the information posted and about wikipedia's reputation for accuracy in general. Thank you for your efforts. Trackinfo (talk) 18:24, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Records tables[edit]

Currently all the record tables are sortable, but sorting is not working on the "date" section. Any ideas? --Pelmeen10 (talk) 20:11, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi Pelmeen10. I don't see any need for sortable record tables. What means, that sorting is not working on the "date" section. If i try i see it works.Montell 74 (talk) 17:16, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
If I try to sort for example List of world records in swimming, I get 1 August 2009 before 10 August 2008, 1 August 2013 before 21 October 2009 etc. --Pelmeen10 (talk) 07:15, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

And I have a question about ratification in athletics records - when or how do you know a record has been ratified? You can revert this edit if you think I'm wrong, but when in national championships a record has been achieved and national federation publishes the results, what needs to be waited? Thanks. --Pelmeen10 (talk) 07:15, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Pelmeen10. Thanx for question. Every federation has its own procedure, some fast (Spain), some at the end of season and year (USA). Longest i know is European Athletics. But just to publish a result says nothing about f.e. a successful doping control. First i have a look at the published record lists by each federation, actual Estonian one is from September 2017. At some lists you can also see that new records still under ratification procedure and Märker with special icons.Montell 74 (talk) 17:35, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • URGENT: Please consider helping get the huge backlog down to a manageable number of pages as soon as possible.
  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. Malinaccier (talk) 18:37, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Abbreviations[edit]

You just edited List of United States high school national records in track and field abbreviating meters and yards into "m" and "y" and I was wondering why? On wikipedia, we are generally explaining things to the uninitiated and uninformed. You and I understand the abbreviation, but do they? In particular, in relation to American High Schools, who insist on using imperial measurements 38 years after they were taken out of their rulebook, I think we need more explanation. Trackinfo (talk) 16:25, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Trackinfo. It was just to find a way to make table format more clear. Sorry, I didn't realize that there is any question about the abbreviation and in case of questions of some disciplines it is possible to read its own article (f.e. 100 yard-article). In Europe using of abbreviations is kind of standard but I remember that instead of result documents in USA often don't use it. So my change is of very low importance.Montell 74 (talk) 17:06, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for my cynical take on life, but people are stupid. Particularly we Americans. And this page gets a lot of traffic from high school students, coaches, parent and otherwise uninformed people, thus the bizarre entries that are sometimes submitted and reverted. I'll revert that one change, so we go back to spelling it out, just so the stupid people understand. Trackinfo (talk) 20:41, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

List of Lesotho records in athletics[edit]

Hi Montell74

I'm pretty inexperienced at Wikipedia, but have noticed that you are regularly updating the records of Lesotho athletic records. You are doing a great job ... keep it up!

If you don't mind, I can point you to a few results that you may have missed. I work for the Lesotho National Olympic Committee, so we follow the athletes' performances closely.

for example: 10k mens road Namakoe Nkhasi 28:28 in Cape Town on 18/09/16 800m women Tsepang Sello 2:06.25 in Nivelles (BEL) on 23/06/18 triple jump (indoor) women Lerato Sechele 13.07m in Reims (FRA) on 27/01/18

These results are from IAAF database

November 2018[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Pedro Lima (actor) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. -- AlexTW 00:38, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Decathlon[edit]

Hello

Regarding winds in decathlon, rules have changed in 2010...

See for exemple the "IAAF Statistics Book – IAAF World Championships London 2017", page 580: "A combined event performance is regarded as wind-assisted if the average assisting wind velocity for the three affected events exceeds two metres per second."

In the case of Lindon Victor in the List of Grenadian records in athletics, the sum of the three winds is 7.5 so the average exceeds 2.0. So, Lindon Victor's 8539 pts are indeed wind-assisted. Alas, this rule os often ignored.

Hello Montell 74,

Source Guide Discussion

The first NPP source guide discussion is now underway. It covers a wide range of sources in Ghana with the goal of providing more guidance to reviewers about sources they might see when reviewing pages. Hopefully, new page reviewers will join others interested in reliable sources and those with expertise in these sources to make the discussion a success.

Redirects

New to NPP? Looking to try something a little different? Consider patrolling some redirects. Redirects are relatively easy to review, can be found easily through the New Pages Feed. You can find more information about how to patrol redirects at WP:RPATROL.

Discussions and Resources
Refresher

Geographic regions, areas and places generally do not need general notability guideline type sourcing. When evaluating whether an article meets this notability guideline please also consider whether it might actually be a form of WP:SPAM for a development project (e.g. PR for a large luxury residential development) and not actually covered by the guideline.

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Long jump shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
You, and other editors, violated WP:3RR. I've fully protected the page. In the mean time, discuss the issue on the article's talk page. A continuation of this edit war without consensus to the changes will result in a block. EvergreenFir (talk) 21:02, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

Boer Goat (8742860752).jpg

I personally disagree with your decision to undo David Dulaimy's Iraqi swimming record in the 100 SCM breaststroke due to it being "scy", as the time was indeed converted to an SCM time.

I spoke with him about this and he says he will swim verified LCM races this summer if the situation improves as he is extremely dedicated to his Iraqi swimming legacy. He respects you as a wikipedian and was not willing to undo this edit, even though he was distraught as a reaction to this news.

Cheers to your wonderful and extensive work on this website.

unexplained deletion[edit]

High jump world records W70, explanation: it was an unoffical meet and it will never be ratified, so better to delete it. WeiaR (talk) 18:41, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

For unratifiable marks pink colour is used.Montell 74 (talk) 18:44, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
LF deleted the 1.31 in Utrecht because it was an unofficial 'corona' meet. For the runs official timing but all field events self-judged. WeiaR (talk) 06:38, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
I don't see a reason for deletion. All marks which are better than current records but not acceptable for any reasons are highlighted with pink colour.Montell 74 (talk) 07:16, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

order[edit]

The progression of masters records pages have different orders... Someone changed part of the pages, but not all. WeiaR (talk) 20:19, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

I know. I like the order to put the current records on top. What order do you prefer?Montell 74 (talk) 20:22, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
I have no preference. They were set up one way, quite some work to change them. WeiaR (talk) 21:24, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

Source record progression[edit]

I think that his source is that those high jump records are approved as European records. After some time they will be approved by WMA. Long ago I gave them a green color in those cases. I do not much on these pages anymore, LF is knowing much more. WeiaR (talk) 17:00, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

New Page Patrol December Newsletter[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Montell 74,

A chart of the 2020 New Page Patrol Queue

Year in review

It has been a productive year for New Page Patrol as we've roughly cut the size of the New Page Patrol queue in half this year. We have been fortunate to have a lot of great work done by Rosguill who was the reviewer of the most pages and redirects this past year. Thanks and credit go to JTtheOG and Onel5969 who join Rosguill in repeating in the top 10 from last year. Thanks to John B123, Hughesdarren, and Mccapra who all got the NPR permission this year and joined the top 10. Also new to the top ten is DannyS712 bot III, programmed by DannyS712 which has helped to dramatically reduce the number of redirects that have needed human patrolling by patrolling certain types of redirects (e.g. for differences in accents) and by also patrolling editors who are on on the redirect whitelist.

Reviewer of the Year

John B123 has been named reviewer of the year for 2020. John has held the permission for just over 6 months and in that time has helped cut into the queue by reviewing more than 18,000 articles. His talk page shows his efforts to communicate with users, upholding NPP's goal of nurturing new users and quality over quantity.

NPP Technical Achievement Award

As a special recognition and thank you DannyS712 has been awarded the first NPP Technical Achievement Award. His work programming the bot has helped us patrol redirects tremendously - more than 60,000 redirects this past year. This has been a large contribution to New Page Patrol and definitely is worthy of recognition.

List of Lebanese swimming records[edit]

A few changes were made on the format for it to become more friendly on the mobile version of most mobile phones these days. The info is still there with less clutter and a shorter table in wide. Why didn't you approve of it? Titles were made more clear, easier to know if we are in a LCM or a SCM. Especially for the women's section where is too hard to scroll up past the boys table every time we forget in what section we are. Same applies for the mixed relay section. The language used aka "LCM or SCM" is the terms widely used in most websites available online so why keep repeating the letter m non sensely. Writing the date that way makes the date show with zero scrolls right and left with the swimmer's name, his time and the event implied on mobile version. Please re consider your last edit as it dismissed all the upgrades. And have a look at both versions on mobile version on your phone. Thank you for your time and efforts.

European record ratification[edit]

Hi, Montell74. Unlike World Athletics, European Athletics not always publish notes when they ratify any records. But, as you probably know, they have an official list of records where they include ratified and unratified registers, the latest with an asterisk. This list is no longer at their site but, as you can see here, they refer to the World Athletics site. If you look through the European Record lists, you can see that only Ingebrigtsen's recent 1500 m indoor record is marked as unratified (when I checked it a few days ago, Kejeta's marathon record was also marked, but this is no longer the case). For reasons I ignore, the men's 20,000 m record is that of Castro's and Abdi's record is not even mentioned, so I just left it as unratified in my edition, till we learned a bit more. So my editions just reflected the current status of the official European top lists.--Gorpik (talk) 11:40, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Thank you Gorpik. It is a good idea to refer to the World Athletics statistics while the EA lists are no longer active on their website.Montell 74 (talk) 15:05, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
