Relationship with Winter Olympics

I was looking at the list of orphaned pages and noticed a link to the 2010 Winter Olympics. Is it worth starting a separate page on the Winter Olympics, or putting it all on this page? This Olympics page seems to emphasise the summer Olympics more. My first thought would be for a separate page, given they're held in different years and different locations, with different countries participating. Michael4 23:45, 26 January 2011 (EST)

Do what you feel is best Michael. My opinion is that the Olympics page has room for Winter Olympics.--Jpatt 23:57, 26 January 2011 (EST)
OK, I have added basic information for all Summer Olympics, and I plan to do the same for the Winter Olympics in the near future. Looking at the updated version though, it is getting rather long (and I get a 30kb page size warning). Is it worth me moving any Winter Olympics information to a separate page (and adding to it)?Michael4 23:05, 28 January 2011 (EST)
Now that I think about it, separate pages for winter/summer Olympics is a good idea especially if we start to describe the various events in detail. --Jpatt 23:29, 28 January 2011 (EST)
Any suggestions as far as content and structure? For example, should we create a separate article page for Summer Olympics, a separate one for Winter Olympics, and keep this Olympics page, but only with information that applies to both types? Michael4 20:43, 29 January 2011 (EST)

Olympiad vs. Olympics

I have made changes to this article so that the use of the phrase "Olympiad" reflects the IOC use of the term, to refer to the four year period in which the games are held. Therefore, the 2008 Olympics are the 29th Olympiad, not the 27th, and so on. (Three Olympics were canceled due to World Wars, and one unofficial Olympics was held in 1906, during the 3rd Olympiad). If we want to change it back to straight order, that's fine, but then we shouldn't call it "Olympiads". Gregkochuconn 21:25, 8 December 2011 (EST)
