Upgrading pages[edit]

Hi all,

As I'm currently working on upgrading Gippsland-related pages to usable, if anyone is curious on a summary table of the status of pages, I'm keeping track on User:LivelyRatification#Status table of Gippsland articles. Here's the current table, though as it doesn't automatically update, it's only accurate at the time I'm writing this message.

Type/Status
Matrix
Outline Usable Guide Star Total
   Outline    Usable    Guide    Star

Hope this can help if you have any articles you'd like to upgrade! --LivelyRatification (talk) 04:03, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Let's make Yarragon guide. SHB2000 (talk) 05:31, 27 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Good idea. Not planning to go there any time soon but I could add some more listings, information, etc. --LivelyRatification (talk) 09:30, 27 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Note my main focus at the moment is upgrading other Gippsland articles to usable so this might not be my main priority. --LivelyRatification (talk) 10:45, 27 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I just said that as a joke. I'll need to complete Innamincka as well. SHB2000 (talk) 21:23, 27 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
At least we don't have any stubs. SHB2000 (talk) 21:23, 27 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Splitting this region up[edit]

Map of Gippsland

@LivelyRatification, Ground Zero: There's a good 28 articles breadcrumbed underneath this region, and I think it's time to split them up. Proposing it similar to how I did it on New England (New South Wales) by LGA.

Here's just what I thought:

  • East Gippsland

all towns and parks in the East Gippsland LGA

  • Wellington and Latrobe Central Gippsland

all towns and parks in the Wellington and Latrobe LGAs

  • South and West Gippsland

all towns and parks in the South Gippsland, Bass Coast and Baw Baw LGAs + both the Phillip and French Islands

Does this work out? I'm only making these based on a map of Victoria's LGAs, only so it's easier to make a coloured dynamic map. But if some other boundary works better, that may as well be the one that we should use. --SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 04:06, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

(please excuse the incomplete map...) --SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 04:22, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@SHB2000: That works fine enough. Might suggest that the Wellington and Latrobe region be renamed Central Gippsland. --LivelyRatification (talk) 05:06, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah that's fine. Will fix that in a sec. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 06:36, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@LivelyRatification: Now that the boundaries have been made, which nine cities should stay on the cities list? SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 06:54, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
At a guess - Bairnsdale, Leongatha, Traralgon, Sale, Warragul, Orbost, Wonthaggi, Lakes Entrance, and uh, maybe Paynesville? Those last 4 seem like a stretch, but if you want 9 that's my 9. LivelyRatification (talk) 19:05, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Will start now. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 22:27, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes Done Moved everything, but replaced Paynesville with Stratford because that's a star article and now there's three in every region. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 23:57, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
