Nomination of Tourism in Andhra Pradesh for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Tourism in Andhra Pradesh is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tourism in Andhra Pradesh until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

The page is under the scope of this project so you may well want to contribute to the discussion. Lineslarge (talk) 19:28, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Tourism Wikipedia page for "Pure Michigan" - new updates for consideration[edit]

Hi Wikipedia Travel and Tourism Contributors - my name is Chad Wiebesick and I work for the State of Michigan's tourism office, Pure Michigan.

If it is of interest to you, there are some updated data, facts and figures that could be included in the Pure Michigan Wikipedia entry, for your consideration:

The $45 million budget is a bit outdated. That money was to be spread out over a number of years, and was not permanent. The 2014 budget is $29 million and was increased $4 million from last year for international marketing. The 2013 budget was $25 million.

I can provide other data, if you're interested, such as: Pure Michigan named Forbes one of the all-time best tourism campaigns, and is the most visited state tourism website for the past seven years.

We could also consider including information about the current Governor and his support of the campaign.

Also, in the section where the article talks about the website relaunch in 2008, perhaps we update it to say that relaunched its newest website in 2012.

Thank you for your consideration. How is it best to proceed? I have news stories and third party, independent research for this information, should it be helpful in updating the Wikipedia article.

It might be best to drop a {{requested edit}} template onto the talk page of the Wikipedia article, Talk:Pure Michigan, with the proposed changes and cite reliable sources so that someone who doesn't have a stake in the matter may update the article.
For Wikivoyage, the project scope is a little different - voy:Michigan (and the individual cities under it) would have articles, but there are no articles about specific organisations like local or state CVB's. Their articles are cities or destinations. That project is a travel guide (unlike Wikipedia, which is an encyclopaedia) and uses different guidelines, voy:WV:Welcome, tourism professionals and "be fair" instead of WP:NEUTRAL.

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
