Another RfC on capitalization of all our articles[edit]

I thought this was a done deal back in this 2022 RFC but obviously not. A handful of editors did another rfc with no sports projects input at all. And it's being challenged because we just noticed it. This could affect almost every single tennis and Olympic article we have, and goodness know how many other sports. Some may have already been moved it you weren't watching the article. And not just the article titles will be affected but all the player bios that link to the articles. Sure the links would be piped to the right place if thousands of articles moved, but if the wording in a bio still said 2023 Wimbledon Championships – Men's singles or Swimming at the 2020 Summer Olympics – Men's 200 metre backstroke that would likely need to be changed by hand. There is also talk of removing the ndash completely.

Perhaps this is what sports projects want and perhaps not. Either way I certainly don't want projects ill-informed as the last RfC was handled. Express your thoughts at the following rfc. Fyunck(click) (talk) 20:56, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Photo needed for Heaving to[edit]

Heaving to could really do with a photo of a modern yacht hove to, if only to balance the historic painting I have added of a square rigged vessel. If there isn't one on commons, does anyone have a snap they have taken that may be suitable?

The article already has an informative diagram. ThoughtIdRetired (talk) 11:54, 10 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
