Editors for Pacific Games[edit]

Hi, if there are volunteers who would like to help include the Pacific Games in the encyclopedia – in particular the events of the 2015 Pacific Games which start next month, July 2015 – please post a reply in this section.

I have created the pages below for the missing early Games to fill in the blanks and, although they are all referenced, most are Start class or C class at best. If anyone has access to source material for these (or indeed the more recent editions) feel free to improve the articles.

Pacific Games:  
Mini Games:  

A start has been made on the disciplines for 2015 but most pages still don't exist –


Any help would be appreciated for these (should you be able to convert some of the red links) or the other pages needed for the 2015 Pacific Games. Thank you -- Ham105 (talk) 22:07, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Many thanks to User:JoshMartini007 for creating so many sports pages. I have also made a start on the country pages below, although I have not found a comprehensive official source for the athletes selected for each country yet. This means searching for sources is needed.

All of the above pages are now created. A few (in particular PNG and Fiji) still need to be expanded with athletes names for most sports. All pages will also need to be updated with details of medals won by athletes. Any help would be appreciated for these (should you be able do so). Thank you -- Ham105 (talk) 18:51, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

2015 Pan American Games[edit]

The 2015 Pan American Games are here. Hope Sportsfan 1234 and TheGreenGiant23 allow us to get involved... Osplace 13:53, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

You don't need to have my permission for any kind, I never stop someone to contribute to the 2015 Pan An Games, in fact I let a ton of messages on the talk page of users who contribute in the past for p.a. pages soliciting their help and no one respond me. If you want to see wrong behaviour (or lack of communication), you should check more with Sportsfan 1234, who does only what he want and never ask for cooperation or help or any kind. Really, this kind of remark by Osplace is insulting, to say the least. TheGreenGiant23 (talk) 22:56, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Pan Am Games 1951 Buenos Aires[edit]

I'd like to help but I'm not user and my English not is good enough. However I can say about 1951 games, that although the article puts under dispute the number of medals, PASO has its official medal count with no discrepancy. Anyway some sports don't have his details, when the info is disponible in the web. In this way, with all the details us can see the total of medals, for example: , This are the medals of Wrestling: , This are the medals of Rowing: , This are the medals of Tennis: , This are the medals of shooting:

All are official references (no one of Argentina, 2 Internacional federations -Shooting/Wrestling-, and 2 USA sport association).

Only left Sailing, still searching. If you can help development that articles, can be great.

Competitors list[edit]

Greetings. Recently, someone (probably Sportsfan 1234) has created a new table: delegation per sport and gender competitors list. This is located in must nation at games at the 2015 Pan Am Games. Is this ok? Sinces is not included in the Wikipedia:WikiProject Olympics/Manual of Style, probably not... Just asking to the Fathers and Creators. --Osplace 04:39, 23 July 2015 (UTC)


Is the use of pictograms ok? Using pictograms in every nations at games article will really overlink those pictograms, like this use from Chantella28. Osplace 18:09, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

  • The purpose is to provide a visual cue for the respective sports disciplines and, for mine, I don't think they'll be overlinked. I suspect it would be a fraction of the overall linkage of flagicons, for example. -- Ham105 (talk) 21:16, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
No, pictograms should not be used in my opinion. The same with linking in headers. Kante4 (talk) 14:13, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Agree on no pictograms. Osplace 12:37, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
And I would disagree. I find them extremely helpful for people who have English as a second language. And if you look at the number of times each pictogram has been used, it is indeed a fraction, as Ham105 said Chantella28 (talk) 15:15, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree with Chantella28, but this goes against MOS so I will have to say no. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 15:48, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • True, although the MOS heading question might be resolved by moving the icon down one line e.g.:
