September 2017 #Chennai
August 2017 Category:Listing with phone missing country code


  • Add additional information to See listing
  • Verify, expand or delete Buy, Eat and Sleep listings

Largest usable city article that needs a clean-up. --Traveler100 (talk) 07:09, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Support. Large article with lots to do, including plenty of listing improvements that can be made by people unfamiliar with the destination. Let's do it! —Granger (talk · contribs) 18:53, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Progress
    • All See listing have been verified but some still need content and a few need coordinated (missing in Wikidata too)
    • Sleep listings validated and coordinates and web links added. Additional hotels added.
    • Introduction text has been improved
    • Shopping malls done but other Buy listings need validating and coordinates
I have noticed an improvement in SEO too. On Startpage it was around the 12th to 14th search result at the start of the month and now it is 9th (and therefore should be on the front page on Google for most people). Gizza (roam) 12:39, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Good amount of work done. Wording has improved, most listings have been verified. Is now a usable article but is still plenty of room for improvement. --Traveler100 (talk) 05:40, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Category:Listing with phone missing country code[edit]

Fixing country codes would be good for the CotM: Removing ambiguity and making phone numbers auto-dial from smart phones makes this site more attractive to readers to use. After 4 years of having the smart phone format in listings the number of incomplete or unclear phone numbers are down from over 3000 to just over 200. Lets complete the task and make it zero. --Traveler100 (talk) 08:10, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Check if number is correct (go to listing web page or look on search engine or Google Maps).
  • If standard phone number add country code to these numbers
  • If special number add the appropriate comment in brackets after the number (if can change premium and extra change number for standard region code even better).
  • Additional information and instructions on Category page.

First time number of articles with error code down to zero ! --Traveler100 (talk) 18:48, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
