Note that numbers in the tables are not dynamically calculated and must be manually updated. Last updated on 20 Jun. 2019.
Click on number to get an updated list of pages by status. (Note sometime the link just sits there, usually due to the database updating, come back in 10 minutes.)
Remember a reasonable Get In section, as well as listings, is needed to make usable.
I would like to propose the aim of getting all articles to usable status. Yes this is a lot of work but it is doable. In the table above low hanging fruit are in the "needs only" row, these are cities that either just need a listing in one section or need an improved Get in section. Once a good number of these have been enhance the sub-regions can them be improved and promoted to usable. Would be good to get an "Sleep" listing and content in the "Get in" of every article.
Key destinations that should be guides but still needs some more content and work done on them.
- Cleveland - Major Ohio city.
- Columbus - Capital of Ohio
- Toledo - A old industrial city. A lot of cultural attractions here.
- Some parts of understand could use rewording to be more appealing to travelers.
- Get around should be expanded.
- A few listings still need geotags.
- Stay Safe should be expanded. (Toledo has above average crime rates.)
- Youngstown - A old industrial city.
- Needs better descriptions for listings
- Needs geolocations for listings.
- Needs more hotel listings
- Cedar Point - Major amusement park
- Mason - Home to Kings Island amusement park.
- Put-in-Bay - Popular vacation island on lake Erie
- Cuyahoga Valley National Park - The only national park in Ohio.
- Ohio prehistoric sites - Major north american native mounds are located in Ohio.
- Hocking Hills State Park - Major state park.
Minor Destinations that have guide potential.
- Hudson - Wealthy suburb of Cleveland with lots of niche shops
- Xenia - The crossroads of a lot of major bike paths. A cyclist's haven.
- Kelley's Island - Popular with Nature lovers and bird watchers
- Wayne National Forest - The only national forest in Ohio.
Other candidates that could with just a little effort be guide status:
- Athens - College Town
- Kent - College Town
- Findlay - Industrial/College Town
- Tiffin - Industrial/College Town
- Yellow Springs - College/Nature town.
Too many Listings
Articles with way too many listings and not enough content. Ideally these articles should either break their listings up into subcategories or have uninteresting/defunct entries removed, and then have remaining content expanded to be useful
Nothing to do
These articles lack basically anything. They should ideally be expanded so they are of use to travelers, but it might just not be possible.
Current articles under discussion and work in progress
Articles that are currently being worked on or under discussion such as merge or delete. Or articles you wish to bring to other attention.
Discussions should take place on the talk page of the article, this is just to highlight activity.
- Cleanup sub-region text after reorganization.
- Some sub-region maps need updating after reorganization.
- Major towns: -
- To complete regions: -
- Troy is a nice town near Piqua. They have a strawberry festival, a historic tavern, and weird steel houses.
