Categorization of villages, districtwise

When we create categories of villages districtwise, is there any sort of naming convention which we shld follow? I plan to start categories for the state of Tamil Nadu. I noticed that categories exist for a few districts and of that, a few have names with "District" (capitalization). Shld I use "District"? Or "district" as in Kerala categories? Pl guide. Paalappoo (talk) 14:15, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

I suggest small letter "district" as in Kerala and Andhra Pradesh categories: Category:Villages in Kerala and Category:Villages in Andhra Pradesh-- Tinu Cherian - 03:36, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! Paalappoo (talk) 03:57, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Christianity Newsletter - August 2009

New Articles

Hi! Good day, Tinu Cherian

As I mentioned earlier, I have prepared draft articles in my user sandbox pages on Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb at User:Nvvchar/sandbox/Kedarnath Musk Deer National Park and on Hijron Ka Khanqah here User:Nvvchar/sandbox/Miscel.. The second article may need some more accptable references but the first one is probably suitable for DYK now. Please tweek them as required and add more text if possible for posting jointly on DYK, if you find it OK. I will be in Bangalore from 19th August to 5th Septemeber, if there is a meeting. Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 01:36, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Sir... But I will be very busy and off wiki atleast till 18th Aug ... May be we can collabrate on another article next time.. Sorry for this.. -- Tinu Cherian - 06:42, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

R. K. Narayan

Can you assess the article? I'm trying to get this to GA/FA, and I'm sure one of India's best ever authors should be of top class importance, and hopefully if that's done, more people will work on the article. cheers. -SpacemanSpiffCalvinHobbes 17:20, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Help needed for Hindi Wiki


We at Hindi wiki are short of contributors with technical know how for creating bots. Do you know how to create a bot for some regular work for maintaining the quality of the wiki. I know there are several on English wiki and I can do a bot request. But generally what happens is people from other countries reply to the bot request and are reluctant to create a bot for a language which they can not even read. So if you have any experience in creating/maintaing any bot please help us. Thanks
