Wikidata project Sailing[edit]

Hi. If you're interested in improving the data about sailing stored in Wikidata, consider joining this sister project Wikidata:WikiProject_Sailing. Project is very recent, any help would be really great! For the moment you will find: few data models, some tools and queries and a first draft of todo list. You can also comment on this property creation proposal USCG MIC ID or these entity schema creation proposals (boat_manufacturing_company, sailboat_class, sailboat).

Score standards for sailing events[edit]

Hi WikiProject Sailing Team, I have been helping to update the scores and add citations for the sailing events for various countries at Tokyo 2020 Olympics and have noticed that different countries have different standards with regards to the scores. Can I clarify on the following with regards to standardization?

1) () bracket i.e exclude scores. Should excluded scores be strike-through or not?
2) Do scores with Flags e.g. UFD/BFD/DSQ/DNF/DNE need to be displayed? I see quite a few pages with FLAG only with no scores and these Flag abbreviations are strike-though accordingly depending on whether there are brackets for that score(I saw a DNE score with no brackets). I have re-add the scores and strike-though the scores instead of the FLAG abbreviations for now but thought to clarify here.

3) For countries with sailors who do not qualify for medal races, is it ok to add the current citations results up to today without medal races as it's not applicable to them?(medal race not done at this point)

Thanks for the clarification. Atom105 (talk) 16:24, 3 August 2021 (UTC)

Bill Pinkney[edit]

Hello, I recently created an article for Bill Pinkney (sailor). He was the first African American to sail around the world solo via the capes. I have not worked on an article about a sailor before and do not know the best resources. Any help with the article would be appreciated. Thank you, Thriley (talk) 23:57, 24 August 2021 (UTC)

There certainly is some scope there for expansion! - Ahunt (talk) 23:59, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
