    Sumo Reference Updates

    I will announce the updates on the Sumo Reference site on this forum - I feel that's better than somewhere hidden on the site. Firstly I could correct a few errors found by Asashosakari and Randomitsuki. Next I want to thank Gans-san for sharing a lot of material which will be worked into the database, but it's so much it will last some months. Gochisozan also is providing me with a lot of missing lower division results in the Heisei era from his Sumo magazine archive. Of course Nishinoshima also is active and I received a fat letter with lots of material from him. It's so much, I actually could need help in entering all that new data. So, if there is another person or two insane dedicated enough to enter data into Excel sheets, I happily can throw loads of work at them. Ability to read kanji or at least hiragana is widening the range of possible tasks, but there actually also are enough tasks where only kanji for "east" and "west" must be distinguished or even less than this. Actually I can understand if no one wants to do that time-consuming job, but I'm accepting volunteers - just send a PM or email. Now what's new in the database since last week? I have added the missing juryo kimarite from 1974 to 1988 with some rare kimarite (like ipponzeoi, sabaori, gasshohineri etc) among them. There still are a lot more available from Haru 1956 to 1973 waiting to be entered. Then I was able to get the correct W-L records for Aki 1988 and Kyushu 1988. Until now these two full banzuke were entered from the banzuke itself (it was nice training to read the jonidan and jonokuchi shikona on the real banzuke), with the wins implicitly deduced from banzuke movement - naturally no distinction was possible between losses and absences, and final scores from intai rikishi were guessed with 0-0-7. Now everything is correct here. Some minor errors between Hatsu 1989 and Aki 1989 also were corrected and hoshitori added. And lastly I completed the records of Kitamayama's favorite oldest rikishi in Ozumo, Ichinoya.

    I think it's weird that there was only one bout on day 4, why would Okuyama and Otani sit the day out? They didn't meet on day 5 as well, and it doesn't make sense to not have them meet at all as both are 2-0 against the other two. They also aren't from the same heya. I'm going to assume that they met on day 4 and that Otani won...

    The database for most games is different from the Sumo Reference DB and has its own torikumi. Oh, and Golynohana's games have another database with their own torikumi. They all draw the torikumi from the main DB, but the process sometimes needs to be kicked.

    Yes, day 15 torikumi was not grabbed yet, I kicked it now.

    What second column? (It indeed used to be an order column over all bouts of the day, but it is bugged with the automated grabbing and I'm never using it anyway, so I removed it now)

    These ID numbers are not at all times present. For example if you just list the torikumi of a day, you don't see this ID (and sometimes there even isn't an hyperlink where you could see the ID in the url). For this reason it does make sense for a mainstream outlet like the NSK website to change the shikona from the standard romanization. The Sumo Reference is a niche website though, and so I don't see urge for me to make shikona "changes" to cater for the audience. I thought about using unicode characters for long vowels but decided against it, as unicode wasn't too widespread. By now it seems to be more usual, so I might make a change to unicode characters (ō and ū) with another checkbox option on the left not to use unicode. But I'm not sure if this would even be conceived as a positive change from the users of Sumo Reference.

    They do have an id number, it's in the url.

    That's right, but I'm happily correcting birthdays if needed. I didn't quite see what has to be fixed though?

    I'm pretty sure I got that reading from such a yearbook or another source and from that took it for his real name. But sure, if the Kyokai lists his name as Yoshiaki I will change this now, and also the old shikona names on the assumption that a mistake is more likely than a different reading (which would also not be impossible).

    No, I just did that today. I think since about mid basho you hit the DB so frequently that ressources like images never left your cache and didn't need to be loaded.

    Performance at least was much better now, pages are loading very fast for me. But I see that one page (especially the first after a while) may load several elements like images. So I changed it from 6 requests in 10 seconds to 20 requests in 20 seconds. I can change that of course again if needed, and if performance doesn't suffer.

    If anyone is willing and able to list the mae-zumo bouts I can add them to the DB.

    The server is actually pretty good. I indeed suppose there are too many bots overloading the site, so I added IP rate limiting now with no more than 6 page visits in 10 seconds. If you get a 403 error now (access denied) it's because of this minor inconvenience.

    Fixed.

    Hanakaze retires

    And the new guy with the longest tenure is Sawaisamu. Hatsu dohyo in Nagoya 1992.

    New recruits Hatsu 2022

    Some news out of the useless trivia department: - Chiyotsurugi set a new record with 8 losses in the current mae-zumo system (at least within my collected data), beating Shunpo who went 0-7. - Chiyotsurugi is the first rikishi to lose 3 times against the same opponent in mae-zumo (again, within my collected data). Before this only Sakashita and Yamakawa met 3 times in Haru 2020 and they went 2-1. - In fact, only once before one rikishi had 3 wins against the same rikishi in the same basho with Nanzan against Fujitora in Nagoya 1990 (of course again, among my collected data). I have 4 more cases of rikishi meeting in hon-basho and then twice in playoff bouts (but all 2-1): Roho against Wakanoyama in Hatsu 2004, Shimamusashi against Haguronada in Kyushu 1994, Konishiki against Hokutoumi in Haru 1990 and Tochifuji against Yoshinohana in Aki 1972. Edit: I just realize that Shimamusashi and Haguronada had all 3 bouts in the playoff, making it the only case of the same match three times on the same day.

    I fixed the email address on the juryo games website and will write you in PM about your problem.

    Hatsu 2022 - Day 11: Wardrobe malfunction?

    Nice charts, but the highest BMI on the far right seems to be a serious mistake...

    Hmm, since there are 3 height-weight entries I should have those details somewhere, but I will need some time to investigate.

    New Juryo for Kyushu 2021

    I rather thought it's not about disciplinary-related incidents here, but about not listing a person twice on the banzuke and he will be listed as Magaki. Obviously Sokokurai got listed twice but as was said already, Makushita is different from Makuuchi and especially Yokozuna.

    Hakuho retires

    Why "Hardenne"? At the time of retirement she wasn't married anymore and was back to Henin.

    Another topic recently was Yokozuna performance against first time opponents, and the loss doesn't bode well for Terunofuji seeing that he will have his premier first time meeting tomorrow (against Ura).

    And we have the result already with a final score of 7 for Terunofuji.

    Asahifuji kanreki dohyo-iri

    Hard to believe that he died just one year after this...
  25. Doitsuyama

    Trivia bits

    I'd argue that Hakuho tops this, going 33-0 before his first such loss in his tenth year as Yokozuna. It is arguably not Asashoryu's fault that he had only 7 Yokozuna years but he never could go beyond 25-0.
