Thank you for your attemps to get the Kolkata articles in better shape, it is surely needed! --ClausHansen 15:13, 4 April 2010 (EDT)
- I second that! Thanks for the efforts with other articles as well. --Burmesedays 22:30, 4 April 2010 (EDT)
- Thanks guys, your feedback is really great. I feel like I accidentally stumbled into a nice community ;-) --Sebindi 12:27, 5 April 2010 (EDT)
Sebindi, thank you for your work on templating stub articles and other, much appreciated!, --ClausHansen 11:54, 17 April 2010 (EDT)
- Yep, really good work Sebindi on many Indian articles. I am afraid that India in general has suffered from a lack of attention here for some time, and it is great to see somebody starting to put that right. Please keep it up!--Burmesedays 00:38, 18 April 2010 (EDT)
- Yeah, very true - sadly there are so many Indian stubs with hardly any information. Is there some guidelines when to put the complete information into the (mostly only list-like) region articles? --Sebindi 00:49, 18 April 2010 (EDT)
- You need to make a call as to whether you think the stub is really worthy of an article. If it is, then just install a template and leave it. If it isn't, then just merge the info into the appropriate region article or the nearest city/town article. --Burmesedays 01:31, 18 April 2010 (EDT)
- I guess you know already: region articles should usally not have any detailed listings of attractions. If an attraction is in a place where you can sleep, that place should have its own article. If it is in a place where you cannot sleep, but it is close to a city, then it should be listed in that city's article (close to here meaning that the other city is the natural point from which to visit the attraction); only in the situation that an attraction is in the middle of nowhere, it should be listed in a region article. Also, please notice that articles should not be merged and redirected from just because they are stubs but only if they are not worthy of an article (that is, for cities if there is nowhere to sleep, and for regions if the region is not needed to keep the number of cities in the higher level region below ten), --ClausHansen 03:56, 18 April 2010 (EDT)
hi, saw you comment in the pub about the ongoing spam discussion. As you stated there we had a lot of work but developed a thriving wiki at WV.
- Hi there, you're pretty well informed ;-) To be honest I do like the independence but as I don't seem to be able to get too much feedback from the handfull of active contributors ... let's see. I only joined here some months ago so I don't feel like I can force or even lead any decision. Thanks for the "Hallo" :) --Sebindi 03:17, 11 May 2010 (EDT)
