Dear Sir, It has been established that the International Delphic Council, Germany, and International Delphic Committee, Russia are misrepresenting themselves as the reviver of ancient Delphic Games, when in fact, no Delphic Games were mentioned in ancient Greek history, and only Pythian Games existed and were occasionally referred to as Delphic festivals and Games of Delphi. In 1912, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) reintroduced the Artistic events in Olympics a Pythian Games, until the Pythian Games were officially discontinued in 1954.

It is brought to your notice that the name of ‘Delphic Games’, a synonym to “Pythian Games’ is still questionable as there is no specific mention of events in the name of “Delphic Games” in the history of Delphi or Pythian Games and before the year of 1994. Therefore, Delphic Games can not be a synonym to ‘Pythian Games’ and the International Delphic Council, Germany, and International Delphic Committee, Russia can not be reviver of these games.

This is for Your information and necessary action, please.

Ridiculous or misleading term only?

The whole policy, to remove original research, is ridiculous. Following that rule, we must remove ALL informations, e.g. in the genetics paragraphs, and many, many more and wikipedia will shrunk to estimated 20 per cent. The point is that the original research has to be correctly cited, starting with the name of the lead author, followed by the year, and linking to the full entries in the ref chapter.HJJHolm (talk) 08:41, 26 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@HJJHolm: see WP:NOR. Here, no original research does not mean no citing published scientific research. Rather, it means a Wikipedia contributor adding information based on their personal knowledge or research without citing a reliable source.

Thank You for the clarification which, of course, is quite correct. You must, however, admit that the pure text "original research" simply expresses anything else than what is really meant and is very misleading. Thus, "ridiculous" hits at that what is misunderstood, caused by the chosen words. I very much suggest to find a better and clearer description! Thank You.HJJHolm (talk) 14:35, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
