Outline districts[edit]

Swept in from the pub

As you might have noticed, I have taken a look at this page on WV and promoted some of the districts to usable level, that were clearly worth promoting. This enables us to see those districts that are really problematic and approach the issue accordingly (redraw district lines or add listings). Now I am far from done and probably won't ever work my way through three hundred-ish pages on my own, but I don't say you should stop what you are doing now to come help me. Just a general reminder, that you can and should check whether the status of a place (especially for bottom level places like districts) is still up to date and to change it accordingly. It is really not all that much work, if you are working on the page anyway and greatly helps identify pages with real problems. Best wishes. Oh and ps: Should I have promoted a district erroneously please revert. I tried to err on the side of caution, but one or two errors might have occurred.

Thanks for doing this - it's good to keep them up-to date; especially considering the criteria for some of our features. --Nick talk 22:34, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
No problem. I think sometimes a district that is too empty for too long might point at a need to redraw district lines.... Not always, maybe even not in most cases but sometimes.... Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:40, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

I have now had a look at all or at least most of the outline districts. There are some 200 still left at outline status. Maybe in a year or so reevaluating them (and the ones newly created in the time since than) may be in order. Furthermore some of the districts sitting at "outline" could well have been promoted to guide right away, but I wanted to avoid such a potentially controversial move.

Thanks for your work Hobbitschuster. I have a feeling that many of the currently 13,702 outline cities (about half of all Wikivoyage articles) are also at least usable status. I was clicking on some random articles and found that Adrogué for example should probably have its status upgraded. Gizza (t)(c) 09:01, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
I have the same feeling, but looking through all of them would probably be a task for more than one person... Maybe there should be an "Expedition:Outlinecities"? Hobbitschuster (talk) 11:51, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
