The Olympics WikiProject is one of the older WikiProjects, having been founded on 1 March 2002. The project has a large amount of content under its scope, with the modern Olympics having been held since 1896. In honor of the Vancouver Olympics that start 12 February, I asked Miller17CU94, Scorpion0422, Parutakupiu, and Andrwsc, all members of the project, to answer some questions about the project and their involvement in it.

Note: Special thanks to User:Kirill Lokshin, from whom I adapted several questions found in his interview of WikiProject Tropical Cyclones.

1. First, tell us a bit about yourself and your involvement in WikiProject Olympics.

2. When did you first join WikiProject Olympics? What are some of the challenges that the project has met since you joined, and how were they dealt with?

3. What aspects of the project do you consider to be particularly successful? Has the project developed any unusual innovations, or uniquely adopted any common approaches?

4. Have any major initiatives by the project ended unsuccessfully? What lessons have you learned from them?

5. What experiences have you had with the WikiProjects whose scopes overlap with yours? Has your project developed particularly close relationships with any other projects?

6. What plans does WikiProject Olympics have concerning the 2010 Winter Olympics?

7. What is your vision for the project? How do you see the project itself, as well as the articles within its scope, developing over the next years and future Olympics?

Next week, WikiProject Report will focus on a cosmopolitan country that has never competed in the Winter Olympic Games. Until then, check out previous reports in the archive.
