This article is in need of an infobox!

Contradiction in population figures
- First one was probably for Vientiane Capital, and the other for the province of Vientiane, which is to the north. The Lao National Tourism Administration pegs the population at around 600,000 , whereas the US department of state puts it at around 850,000. DigitalC (talk) 21:17, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
Duplicate content in this article and Vientiane Prefecture
There is content in Vientiane Prefecture which I believe rightly belongs under Vientiane city. Particularly the History and Landmarks sections of Vientiane Prefecture. Users are likely to visit the Vientiane city article first and may not necessarily visit the Vientiane Prefecture article.
For History, all but the last paragraph of History in Vientiane Prefecture would rightly belong in the Vientiane city article. Or better still, a History of Vientiane subarticle might need to be created. This could then be linked from both main articles to avoid version differences which have now arisen in the texts.
And for Landmarks, this info in Vientiane Prefecture is something a user would expect to find under Vientiane city. But some landmarks do pertain to the prefecture e.g. Buddha park. Again a subarticle is likely the best course.
Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page
Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.
