Copy edit[edit]

I completed a copy edit of this page. I restored links to the Census data, as they seem to work, and added more data to the infobox from the Census records. It looks like there will be a new census in 2011, so that data should be updated next year. I deleted a fair amount of non-WP:NPOV text, especially from the Tourism section, but it still reads like a travel brochure. It needs cleanup, preferably with attention paid to English translations of non-English terms. I also deleted some commented text that looked promotional.// Macwhiz (talk) 21:43, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Businesses[edit]

Are all these businesses really notable enough to warrant inclusion in an international encyclopedia? I noticed not a one of them has their own article. That seems to imply that the answer is "no." This list seems like it may be more about promoting than informing. // Macwhiz (talk) 21:43, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Pursuant to the ideals of WP:SPAM, I have deleted the list of businesses. None of them were notable; it appears that it was mostly a vanity list, and that has no place in an encyclopedia. // ⌘macwhiz (talk) 04:39, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

People[edit]

The People section seems to be about Surendranagar city, not the district. Can someone verify this and delete it if needed? // Macwhiz (talk) 21:43, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Delicacies[edit]

This section looks like a laundry list. It makes little sense, especially if you don't already know what these things are. Does it really belong in an encyclopedia article? If it does, it should be turned into a definition list that includes details on each dish: what it's comprised of, why it's notable, etc. // Macwhiz (talk) 21:43, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Since I made the previous comment, various editors have tacked more "delicacies" onto the laundry list, without any context or attribution. The inclusion of items in the list without sources violates, among other policies, WP:LISTV. The list itself had become a laundry list, so I removed it. Before the content is restored, it should be sourced and placed into context, preferably in prose. // ⌘macwhiz (talk) 03:12, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Legends[edit]

I think legends are notable, but the legend included here is not only unsourced, it's vague. Is it really that notable? If it's notable, perhaps it should have its own article instead? // Macwhiz (talk) 21:43, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
