Pages needing work[edit]

  • Transmission Gully page needs updating in light of the decision to build this route as of 15/Dec/2009 Stuff article
  • New Zealand Indoor Bowls Base of article is there, needs some grammatical issues fixed and any other helful edits please
  • Women's suffrage in New Zealand - this has a very negative spin on it towards NZ, maybe less about the fact NZ was not the first 'independent' nation to give woman the vote (according to the article) and more on the actual movement?
  • Wellington - needs expansion, especially lead section, would advise it to be modelled after Canberra or Washington, D.C. articles. Images and illustration are fine, its the content and references that need significant reworking and cleaning.
  • Crown Fibre Holdings
  • Auckland - Need quick improvement on Lead Section of article, need more info, blunt facts of the area etc.
  • British Empire - very little mention of New Zealand in here
  • New Zealand Exchange - needs much expansion
  • Rakino Island - Needs cleaning up and referencing
  • ANZAC Day - Needs to have more NZ related information - biased towards AUS.
  • Socialist Unity Party (New Zealand) - add few edits in last 2 years and needs references.
  • Refugee migration into New Zealand - needs expanding
  • New Zealand European - needs urgent expanding.
  • New Zealand Music Awards - 'Tui_award_winners_YEAR' page slowly being deleted, information needs moving to 'YEAR in New Zealand' pages and formatting.
  • Trams in New Zealand - History of Trams in New Zealand may need more work (has been split from Trams in Australasia).
  • Professor and Reader (academic rank) need work.
    • Some of the stuff doesn't describe the situation in NZ very well IMHO. For example, Professor used to suggest that NZ universities use Reader not Associate Professor. I don't know which universities use Reader instead of Associate Professor but I know UoA doesn't and from a quick Google; Massey, Waikato, Victoria, Otago and Canterbury all use Associate Professor so I fixed the article to say most NZ universities use AP. The reader article doesn't really describe this well and I haven't fixed it. 203.109.240.93 00:49, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
    • I believe the University of NZ used to use the British system but as time goes on more academics are using the American system. In the 1990s Lincoln University allowed its lecturers to choose.
  • Clint Brown - needs expanding - career details added
  • New Zealand local elections, 2004 - only 4 regions done in detail
  • New Zealand local elections, 2007 - I'm trying little bits out here. Kripto 02:37, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Current general and Māori electorates linked from New Zealand electorates require details of population centres and history as most are section stubs
  • Kiwi - (see Bald eagle) Need lengthier documentation and discovery notes and much more information needed.
  • Takahē - An iconic species, needs cleaning up at least
  • Lance Adams-Schneider - Needs expansion, focusing on his stint as NZ ambassador to the US.
  • Parliaments of New Zealand - i.e. 3rd Parliament of New Zealand, 4th etc. - needs detail of Members, maybe going through other articles most of the information could be scraped together. Also early General elections (i.e. New Zealand general election, 1884.
  • HMNZS Kiama - the section on her 24 years in the RNZN is almost entirely unreferenced, and is a bit sparse given the length of service (1952-1976).
  • Alcohol in New Zealand - needs expanding. I've taken a fair bit of material from other more complete pages, but needs more work.
