Since the article also mention attractions which are outside the Larkana city, should we rename the article to "Larkana District"? An example is Bandarban District. --Saqib (talk) 11:25, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

"Larkana District minus Mohenjo-daro"? I don't seriously suggest that as a title, but that's what the article is, right? So if the article is renamed "Larkana District," there has to be a notice that Mohenjo-daro is covered separately. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:16, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
""Larkana District minus Mohenjo-daro"" at no cost, but we can change the IPO template of Mohenjo-daro. --Saqib (talk) 19:24, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for doing so. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:29, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
What do you comment on changing this from city article to region article? --Saqib (talk) 19:37, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for not being clear: I think it's fine to make this a "Larkana District" article, while noting that Mohenjo-daro, though within the District, is covered separately. Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:26, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
And what about the article template? --Saqib (talk) 10:35, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Regional, I guess? Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:36, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Just keep in mind that if you change this to a region, you'll have to adapt the content to match. I'm fine with having listings in region articles for places like this where information is limited, but most of the information in the Larkana article now is specifically for Larkana city, so should be slightly changed.

I had this in mind Julia, but if I use regional template, both "Buy" and "Sleep" sections are missing from the template. Is it fine to alter the standard template in this article? --Saqib (talk) 11:10, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
(edit-conflict, or rather, the page was gone when I saved :P) I think any template can be changed when there's a real need for it. I also know we've been using regional articles as a collecting point for rural areas with small towns and local listings where full articles for those villages make no sense (e.g. Surinamese_Rainforest) and I know we sometimes put listings for nearby villages and such in city/municipality articles (e.g. Wijdemeren). However, I'm not sure you need to change this Larkana article into a region one already. I don't mind either way, and it makes sense if you are planning on expanding the info on that region, and include information about the other cities. Personally I wouldn't bother to change it only to make the POI more specific, but again, go ahead if you want. Btw, for next time, it's probably better to discuss first and only then revert a fix of the breadcrumb again. Traveler100 does a good job keeping our breadcrumbs in tact, and I imagine it might just be unnecessarily frustrating when its deliberately broken because we are still having a discussion about it..

Well noted Julia. Thanks! --Saqib (talk) 11:36, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
