Maybe I'll go with The Netherlands or Brazil and work on all of the warships I can find from whichever I pick...

All team sporting is about teamwork, but in terms of single person competition under a flag, it's about morale. I can probably agree with that; I can't imagine for a second that many of the users who will sign up will be able to score the kind of points that some this year have scored - I imagine several will be on 0 after round 1...

Hurricane Angel Saki (talk) , 14 June 2009 (UTC) I propose that we expand the Wiki Cup to 128 users. Leave Message , Yellow Evan home , Sandbox It probably wouldn't be feasible to include more rounds, but there doesn't seem to be any inherent bar to making the first round as large as needed: if more people want to sign up, then great. I'm sure i Matthew thought about this at some point during the organisation of this year's contest, but I'm brining it up to the community: what would be the reaction to a league-type contest?

--Sorry about that, I was still working under some old information from a few weeks ago when DYK was still in a huge hook shortage which we seem to have come out of ;), although as has been pointed out on the DYK talk page, DYK does tend to go through trends and periods of very few incoming hooks and then periods of large numbers of hooks so I still think that this could be good even if it gave very few points because when DYK is going through hook shortages any hook noms would be useful. And if I have to, the flag of my country is not here yet, can I still use it? I compete as Mexico and don't live there (although close enough that if I threw a baseball hard enough and broke a window, I might have to pay for the damage in pesos). if they nom it after they still have to go through the pain of FAC so it probably should count... It seems a bit counterproductive to the purpose of this event to disqualify existing articles from being improved.

Best, Mifter (talk) , 20 June 2009 (UTC) I heard that in some sports, an athlete can represent two nations depending where they're from, so can I use two flags for mine (because I really want to use this one and also this one, and possibly My Official Flag)? I thought the idea was to improve content on Wikipedia through this contest.

— The flag I was originally using has been deleted so I need to choose a new one.

I would like to know if I have to choose a flag from a country, state etc.

If that is the stated goal then why in the world disqualify existing articles?

Just have a caveat that if it's clear you "stockpiled" articles to push through at the beginning of the season then those articles will be disqualified.

About your handicap - it was only voluntary so if you want it removed next time around then you are free to do so in my opinion. However, we're still hammering out all of the details. This in my opinion could really help to ease the lack of new hooks being submitted at T: TDYK and it could also add a new layer of competition to the Cup for users who like to search for promising new content and showcase it, almost like the users who get points for successful FP noms in this years cup for searching for promising images locally and on Commons and nomming them for FP status ;).

I feel like you're taking this way too seriously, and making a big deal out of nothing, really. I'm sorry if you're upset that it kept changing, but the rule is standing as it is. All the Best, Mifter (talk) , 18 June 2009 (UTC) Is this a joke?
