AimsEdit

Outline to UsableEdit

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 a "Eat" listing and content in the "Get in" of every article. It would also appear that many listings are just names of places with no address, contact information or web links; quite some work to do here.

Usable to GuideEdit

Key destinations that should be guides but still needs some more content and work done on them.

Current articles under discussion and work in progressEdit

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.

  • Move listings to districts of Leeds, better district map
  • East Sussex too much listing information in region article
  • Can Isle of Wight listings be moved to city articles
  • Warminster too many listing, particularly in Buy section
  • See listings in Hampshire link to city article
  • City-ify few listings in Surrey
