Athletics at the 2014 Panamerican Olympic Festival Hi SFB: I could cover the upcoming event held next weekend. However I don't know where to hook it. Some frame/structure like "Panamerican Olympic Festival", "2014 Panamerican Olympic Festival", "Athletics at the Panamerican Olympic Festival", navboxes, categories,... has to be generated and hooked to PASO, but that is normally not my business. I could generate a stub "Athletics at the Panamerican Olympic Festival" and hook it to APA as their announced "senior championship". APA is co-organizer for athletics and the event is also open for non-PASO members (Anguilla, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos, and probably CuraƧao). Any suggestion?

Appreciate your comment also to this problem. CroesJ (talk) 12:33, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

@CroesJ: Hi there! I noticed references to this event, but only now have I read enough material to understand what it is. It just seems like a test/development event rather than a competition proper. On that basis I don't think it warrants the same level of coverage as something like the Pan American Games. I suggest we start with just the 2014 articles and leave out articles like Athletics at the Panamerican Olympic Festival until the continuation of the event is confirmed.
Pan American Sports Festival seems to be the common term for the event, so I have started a basic article there and linked in 2014 Pan American Sports Festival. If you want to start working on the year article you can use Template:Events at the 2014 Pan American Sports Festival as the navigation template. I would place all related the articles into the main Category:Pan American Sports Festival. If this does turn out be just a one-off event then this sole category will more than suffice for navigation. Let me know if you need any more help. Cheers. SFB 18:13, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
The pictogram for canoeing in {{GamesSport|Image=Yes|Canoeing}} should be "Canoeing (flatwater) pictogram.svg" Canoeing (flatwater) pictogram.svg in difference to "File:Canoeing (slalom) pictogram.svg" Canoeing (slalom) pictogram.svg. And "Cycling" should be "Track cycling" with "File:Cycling (track) pictogram.svg" Cycling (track) pictogram.svg (no road cycling competitions). CroesJ (talk) 11:30, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
