if you watch the 1997 US Nationals it would tell you the event win be on Prelims (day 1). Then it fellows into 1998 and in 1999 half of the USA womens team was mosty injured so they had day one for the all around and day 2 was event finals. than it want back to what it was in 1998 for 2000. After 2001 it want by both days
Hey! First off I wanted to note I'm messaging you on here because the user pages on the college gym wiki are all glitched and such. I was wondering how you were feeling about either adding Mens College Gym to the college gym wiki or making an affiliate wiki solely for men. My concern for adding them to the main college gym wiki is that it would make things complicated when it comes to adding codes of point and such. My concern for making another wiki is the time it will take to get the format to make it a functioning and visually appealing wiki. I was wondering what your thoughts are because when it comes to both options, you are far more experienced. Thanks!
Hey! I know that on the front page it says this wiki is more for elite gymnastics, but we have all seen the emptiness of the JO wiki linked there, and the lack of a NCAA wiki. I was wondering if we can make some pages about some teams with some information such as rosters, program records, etc. I think it will bring a lot to this wiki as all types of gymnastics may eventually be on one site for everyones convenience.
Well, the JO wiki linked here isn't mine. Someone else created it, asked me to link it here, but they abandoned it after a while because it wasn't getting a lot of views and visits. And for me personally, I don't know a lot about the JO program. The Nastia Liukin Cup articles are on here because the competition is televised.
I have considered making an entire wiki for NCAA and linking it to each NCAA Championships articles on here. There are a lot of gym fans who don't know the NCAA CoP as well as the elite CoP, so having a similar skills guide, requirements guide, connections guide, etc. could be helpful. Also, NCAA gymnastics dates back to 1982, so it would be a shorter history than elite gymnastics. I think that would be a better solution.
The problem with creating a wiki for NCAA gymnastics is that finding past rosters for NCAA teams dating back to the 80's or 90's is pretty much impossible, even with an Internet archive site. Believe me, I've tried. Also, creating a wiki from the ground up is extremely time-consuming. It requires a lot of research and constant perusing of the Code of Points. Everything I've done on this wiki happened over the span of seven years.
Trying to organize elite with JO and NCAA on this wiki would be very difficult, since I'd have to accommodate three different divisions of the sport, types of competitions, and Code of Points. That's why I'm keeping this wiki mostly elite gymnastics.
Additionally, including JO and NCAA athletes on here would show a bias towards American gymnasts. Yes, international gymnasts can and have competed in NCAA, but NCAA is based in America and that system doesn't exist anywhere else in the world. From day one, I have done my best not to show any bias towards a particular country on this site. That's why the wiki's color scheme is black and white, because there isn't a country whose flag is just those two colors.
