Template Games Sport[edit]

For the template to work (and link to the example Curling and Ice Hockey articles) don't the main article and sub sport articles need to be of the same name. So at the moment as we have 2011 Canada Winter Games and , for example, Curling at the 2011 Canada Games they don't link up. Is there a proper name (with or without the Winter) that we should uniform the page names to? Ravendrop 03:01, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

And never mind. It was just done thirty second after I posted. Ravendrop 03:02, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Preceding games[edit]

Anyone notice that 2009 Canada Summer Games doesn't redirect to 2009 Canada Games ? 64.229.101.183 (talk) 22:35, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Succession box[edit]

What's up with removing the succession box? The other Canada Games articles all had them, except this one. Intoronto1125 (talk · contribs) removes it. 64.229.101.183 (talk) 20:05, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

I see no good reason why it shouldn't be on there. I've re-added it. Anyone who wishes to contest this can do so on the talk page here. Ravendrop 22:09, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
It's not neccessary for the Canada Games, because this is the only Canada Games article that has been worked on extensively. Therefore it leaves a lot of link that are "red". Also these are the Canada Winter Games so only the Canada Winter Games box should be there, not the summer games as well (see the Olympics). Intoronto1125 (talk) 02:50, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Proposal Red links and other articles not being worked on extensively is not a valid reason to exclude these nav boxes (that being said, article for the next games at least can probably be crated, they just haven't yet). The point of them is to make going from one event to the next easier, without having to continually go back to an overall page. That being said, I understand your concern about the summer games and agree. I think though, that we should keep the 2009-2011-2013 progression as, much more so than the Olympics, the Canada Games are much more of a cohesive event (especially in the sense that many "summer" sports are played at the winter events. Note also that in the media they are referred to (especially the 2009 ones) as the Canada Games and Canada Summer Games interchangeably. I propose that we put the 'Canada Games' and Canada Winter Games' on this article (and all other winters) and the 'Canada Games' and the 'Canada Summer Games' on all summer one. Additionally, we should add the location underneath for each. I haven't figured out how to do that yet, but will look into tomorrow or the day after (or someone else can do so in my place). It would look something like this (without the names for the moment):

Let me know what you think. Otherwise, great job on keeping the article(s) up to date. Ravendrop 21:17, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
