    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.

    Well, I meant the other two besides Miyabiyama as he was mentioned in the post just above mine..

    YDC Post Hatsu 2023

    You can't really count Miyagiyama as he became Yokozuna in 1922 with Osaka sumo which merged 1927 with the NSK.

    The other two are Wajima and Musoyama. Jokoryu came very close to do it from mae-zumo as he went 27-0 before losing the yusho decider from Ms15e.

    Hmm, a bintsuke perfume would be interesting, no?

    Hatsu 2023 discussion (results)

    Last time was Shimoda in Natsu 2006. The banzuke was crowded and so he didn't get promoted to Juryo. Sadly it turned out that he'll never got to the paid ranks.

    Sure, that's enough, so I added it now. It's pretty similar to Miyabiyama after all.

    Being a graduate is no requirement, just officially being in the sumo club of the university.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Ok, but do they have a sumo team and was he part of it? Being a graduate is no reason to include it in the DB, there were other graduates before where the university had no sumo team or the rikishi wasn't part of it. They do have a sumo team, so the question is if he was a member?

    New recruits Kyushu 2022

    0-2 Kosei against 2-0 Kazenoumi and 0-3 Shokeima against 2-1 Kotosato? Switching Kosei and Kotosato would make standard mae-zumo pairings. Also you stated that only Kazenoumi is done at 3-0, but with your results Kotosato also would be done at 3-1. I guess we'll see today. Ok, I have to agree that the video is proof enough. Very weird match-making indeed.

    New recruits Kyushu 2022

    Did you perhaps mix up Kosei and Kotosato here? 0-2 Kosei against 2-0 Kazenoumi is unusual for mae-zumo and Kotosato would also be finished at 3-1.

    This is only the second time that all makuuchi rikishi have a loss after day 4. The only other time was Kyushu 1969 and there were only 34 makuuchi rikishi back then.

    I didn't synch the four recruits from Aki properly with the Sumo Reference DB. Usually this gets fixed itself after a basho or two when this happens, but Kawazoe was already high up so it's tangentially related to his Ms15Td start.

    I fixed the Kawazoe bug, and added the 6 records to the DB.

    If you are not happy with my site, feel free to grab from the official NSK site. But be warned, you have absolutely no idea how often I had to change my code to adapt to changes on the NSK site.

    What's so special about Hokuseiho?

    Yeah, the Japanese surely don't have such a national sport with long heritage to draw inspiration from. /s

    This seems like a dangerous bet with Tsukahara threatening to get to Juryo pretty soon.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yūshō Discussion Aki 2022

    If the number of sanyaku gets slimmed down by two (which seems pretty likely at this point), there even will be a full maegashira 17 rank added to the bottom and I wonder what effect this will have on possible demotions...

    New recruits Nagoya 2022

    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.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    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)
  23. Doitsuyama

    Sumo Reference Updates

    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?
