Geolympics 2016?

Hello. Has a location for the Geolympics in 2016 already been chosen? I looked for a wiki page but could not find one. If not, Quentinsburgh, Freedemia would be glad to host. I just recently added an Olympic sized stadium with subway access and if no one else has gone for the bid, I do think Quentinsburgh could be the right place for 2016. If not, that's fine too but I thought I'd ask. Here's where the stadium is and I'm still working on sprucing up the area around it. map --Ernestpcosby (talk) 05:01, 25 April 2015 (CEST)

Here are some brainstorms about the 2016 Geolympics: We set up a "bid" process. If a city wants to participate, they should perpare the various venue infrastructure, and submit map links to all their venues. Then after a fixed time, people could "vote" for the city that is offering the best infrastructure for the geolympics. A simple vote process could be made using the "signature" feature on talk pages - each user gets one, non-secret vote. This is just brainstorming, but I think it could work if people show good will to participate and someone takes the time to set up the "bid" page (which could the Talk:2016 Summer Geolympics page). Keep in mind that a good olympics proposal would include more than 100 venues - stadiums, tracks, olympic village, training areas, etc.--Luciano (talk) 06:42, 25 April 2015 (CEST)
Done, check and change what you want there :) --Zniwek (talk) 14:04, 25 April 2015 (CEST)

Name: Geolympiad --> Pancontinental Games

Before I integrated my country of Kalm to OGF in 2014 and drew a first sketch of Uletha's outline, I had already thought much about how the "Olympic Games" could be called. "Olympia" is a real-world name (of a small city in Greece), so it was clear for me that in a fantasy world we cannot use this name. A friend of mine came up with "Pancontinental Games", which I liked very much. So here's the 2008 Tarott PACO Pancontinental Games territory. Please, if someome ever starts making a list of passed Geolympiades/Pancontinental Games, make sure to include Tarott in 2008.

I would really appreciate to use "Pancontinental Games" instead of "Geolympiad", but I would accept if not everyone agrees to this change of names. --Joschi81 (talk) 13:36, 28 June 2015 (CEST)

I have no particular liking for the name "Geolympiad," either, but it has been used in many, many articles now on our wiki. If everyone agreed to change it, it would be a lot of work to make all those changes. We could use the term "Pancontinental Games" as a kind of alternate expression, on equal footing with Geolympiad, maybe using some redirects along with some mentions in the existing articles. With that option, I think you could unilaterally make changes to include the term anywhere you wanted.--Luciano (talk) 14:09, 29 June 2015 (CEST)
Good point! Thank you, Luciano, I'll do it like this! --Joschi81 (talk) 18:32, 29 June 2015 (CEST)


Only major events it says. Even if we can't define that properly, I would say, those events without their own page (or at least a link to a section of a page with a minimum of explanantion) are NOT major events. And they may be orphaned anyway.

Feel free to re-add the tournaments as you think they are indeed important, but this time with more information. --Toadwart (talk) 17:26, 16 May 2018 (CEST)
