:The major breaks here look alright and maybe some of the sub-districts deserve separate mention due to the see, do, eat, etc. available. My example would be [[Oklahoma City/Bricktown|Bricktown]]. Also the "Quail Springs/Memorial Corridor" might qualify due to the abundance of shopping venues and restaurants. [[Nichols Hills]] and [[The Village]] are separate towns and already have their own articles. Does anyone have suggestions? -- [[User:Xltel|Tom Holland (xltel)]] 07:51, 11 February 2007 (EST)

I checked the "do" section, and realized that NOTHING was mentioned about the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder. While I have never stepped foot in this city, I do know that this basketball team is the entity that makes this city most visible. Not to mention, they were in the NBA Finals last year. Just thought that should be added.

Hmmm, not that Wikitravel articles shouldnt let people know what is good or bad in a place, but this doesn't sound too usefull as a travel article so far. Maybe we should add something to Wikitravel:Slippery slopes about just railing on (or raving about) a place? Majnoona


Yes, this is definitely not useful. When I get more time I'll consider doing an edit to fix up this page. OKC is not THAT bad; it at least deserves more relevant information than this... Jrew

extlinks

An enthusiastic user added a bunch of extlinks. They seem to be mostly actual attractions, but the user only added the hyperlink, not an actual description (which we need so we can be useful as a printed guide). If anyone feels like following the links and adding entries for the ones that are appropriate, that'd be very helpful. -- Colin 22:50, 7 Mar 2005 (EST)

Pictures

It looks like I will be in Oklahoma City till the end of March 2006, I plan to take some pictures in Bricktown for Oklahoma City/Bricktown district, but that is it. If anyone has any requests for pictures in Oklahoma City, now would be the time to ask. ---- Tom Holland (xltel) 06:44, 13 Feb 2006 (EST)

Districts

I have redirected all the added districts that had mostly copyvio from Wikipedia. I have to admit I do not like the districts the way they are and we do need to come up with a better list. At the same time I would like to see that they stay under the count of nine. Some of the names that were redirected might be able to be used, but at this point I believe we need to discuss the breakdown. Any suggestions? -- Tom Holland (xltel) 21:53, 10 February 2007 (EST)

The following is the list of neighborhoods in Wikipedia;
    • Downtown
      • Central Business District
      • Bricktown
      • Automobile Alley
      • Deep Deuce
      • The Arts District
    • Innercity North
      • Asian District
      • Eastside (area east of the Capitol)
      • 39th Street Enclave
      • The Paseo
      • Uptown and Midtown
    • Innercity South
      • Stockyards City
      • Capitol Hill and Riverside
    • Northside
      • Adventure District
      • Mayfair and Belle Isle
      • Nichols Hills and The Village
      • Quail Springs/Memorial Corridor
    • Westside

    • Southside
      • I-240 Corridor
      • "Westmoore"/South Oklahoma City
    • Eastside
      • Southeast Oklahoma City
The major breaks here look alright and maybe some of the sub-districts deserve separate mention due to the see, do, eat, etc. available. My example would be Bricktown. Also the "Quail Springs/Memorial Corridor" might qualify due to the abundance of shopping venues and restaurants. Nichols Hills and The Village are separate towns and already have their own articles.

Chesapeake Energy Arena/Oklahoma City Thunder

I checked the "do" section, and realized that NOTHING was mentioned about the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder. While I have never stepped foot in this city, I do know that this basketball team is the entity that makes this city most visible. Not to mention, they were in the NBA Finals last year. Just thought that should be added.
