Sumo Reference Updates

382 posts in this topic

Sorry for not replying faster but I was on a nice internet-less vacation. Just send the whole list, I can manage easily myself to find the missing dates. If you don't have the rikishi-ID I would like to have something to make an easy ID of the rikishi though (like last shikona plus birth date).

I hope you've enjoyed your vacations. I have sent to the e-mail adress given on the DB website a very short list with the date of the death of rikishi I've not seen on the DB. I can send you the rest but I think you have got most of what I have.

Isamizuki's (9101) real name is listed in English as MIAYAZAKI, but in Japanese it says 宮崎.

Just wanted to tell you all that the Sumo Reference is used by a lot of rikishi and definitely by all mongolian rikishi (cause the english site is a lot easier for them to read). (First prize...) They were a bit surprised to hear that it's the creation of a foreign fan.

Also Wakamisho said that he misses his picture in the database. This reminds me that I owe Doitsuyama a lot of pics for the younger ones. Ganbarimasu!

I think Myogiryu deserves a more recent picture :)

Shironoryu has a japanese name in the NSK site

Oh, thanks for seeing that - I actually had it updated in my files since September 2009, but somehow I must have forgotten to update the database.

There were another names changes?

Not for him, no - but this name change was on ... oh, not September, sorry, but November 9th, 2009.

Certainly. There are quite a few name changes in the database, but most likely this is far from a complete work I fear.

I have a feeling that I ask for the impossible, but still...

When I saw Yubinhaad's kimarite statistics, I was wondering whether it would be possible to link Sumoreference query outputs to video links. What a treat it would be to see, say, all eight kakenage from Haru Basho in a row...

Any way this could be done?

Done, with the additional option "Videos only" (a bit hidden at the end of rikishi 1)

Agreed! This is amazing! And have you ever made a single euro/yen/dollar/pound nadonado out of it?

What do we have to pay you to make use of this treasure?

Orion, looking at years of her own private *pre-Internet* files, where were also freely available (if you asked nicely) and never for sale

Is there a summary of which basho have how many videos? Perhaps add to the summary page?

Done.

Edit: Actually, this list was available before with this query, or similar. You can modify the query in many ways (group by division etc), so this is a more complicated way, but also more flexible.

Great work, as always. (Applauding...)

But there is one little thing. It's two years ago that the height and weight of the rikishi were updated. Are there any new updates in the near future ?

P.S.: Oh, another thing. Is it possible to sort the rikishi of one basho by age, weight, heya etc., maybe in the Text-only Banzuke ?

How about this? And for some things there's also this.

Edit: While I'm at it, could career-high rank be added to the Rikishi Details on Query.aspx?

Career high rank for the whole career or until the basho?

Also, editing posts with links doesn't seem to be a good idea here. Corrected links from your post are here and here. Could you still correct the links as the queries are getting a bit big?

Preferably both, of course. ;-) Whole-career is the one I find myself needing more often though. And I wasn't sure if career-to-date is easily handled since it's potentially a moving target in the bashos covered by a query.

Also, editing posts with links doesn't seem to be a good idea here.

Sorry about that, I forgot about that issue. Fixed now.

Yes, thanks a lot. That's what I'm looking for.

I have some old poor quality videos of lower division bouts from various basho (2004~2006). Should I just post them here?

Not necessary. But if they were public I could read your feed and grab them automatically...

Do you have this one?

I found a tiny tiny issue in SumoReference: A number of bouts indicated as yasumi by Kimarite have the symbol for Hikiwake although there is even a symbol hoshi_yasumi.gif for this purpose.

here for instance
