Kerala Portal[edit]

If you wish to become an active member in the development of Kerala wikiportal please add your name to the following list.

Featured Article[edit]

Hai all. This portal has been inactive almost since the beginning. Let us try to make it active by putting a new featured article in the featured article space at least once every week (the article does not have to be a wiki featured article). Any article that is decently well written about Kerala will be fine. It can also become a pseudo Kerala Colaboration of the Week. Interersted people please leave your comments below.--Raghu 11:15, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Selected Article and Picture[edit]

In accordance with the discussions going on here I have changed the word featured to selected. Ragards --Raghu 11:33, 28 December 2005 (UTC)


Despite the fact that we have so many wikipedians from Kerala , we are unable to generate any featured article till now. I suggest that we make a serious effort to make Kannur a FA sumal 05:22, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

  • I agree. Let us address all the issues that was raised when it failed as a FA candidate last time. Providing references is one of them. We will also go through the India District Project page to see that all the sections are covered. Let us have further discussions in the Kannur talk page.--Raghu 06:08, 7 January 2006 (UTC)
  • One user Saravask is currently working on Kerala page, which also has a chance of becoming a featured article.--Raghu 06:08, 7 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Kerala is now a featured article. Hooray! Why not lets make Kochi, India a featured article too. I've been working on it for some time. thunderboltz 05:55, 11 February 2006 (UTC)
Hai Deepu. Good that you are contributing to Kochi, India. But it is stil far away from the features article level. You can go through the Chennai article and model it like that. Especially the section headings and the structure. Wikipedia:WikiProject Indian cities gives considerable information on how to write a great indian city article. That page will be useful. reagrds--Raghu 10:44, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Featured Picture[edit]

The featured pciture is not aligned correctly in the box. Could someone try to fix that? Also, take a look at Portal:India. why cant we make Portal:Kerala to that standard? thunderboltz 06:49, 26 February 2006 (UTC)


I would like to say that I have left the project as currently I am in the process of redefining my relationship with English Wikipedia, which may take days, weeks, and even months. However, I shall continue to edit pages relating to Hindu mythology. Regards. --Bhadani 09:03, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Automation of selected article process[edit]

I've made changes to the code of the portal a bit, so that a random article appears each time the portal is loaded. I've resorted to this move primarily because it minimises our involvement, without compromising on freshness for the visitor. I'm looking for comments on this. If all approve, we could use the same system for selected pictures too.-- thunderboltz(Deepu) 15:11, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Peer review at WP:INDIA[edit]

The article is up for peer review at Wikipedia:WikiProject India/Peer review/Portal:Kerala. Please comment. Thank you.--thunderboltz(Deepu) 13:32, 17 November 2006 (UTC)


This is the best-designed, most useful, and most aesthetically pleasing portal I've seen on wiki. Many other portals are a clusterfuck of bland trivia, so-so pictures, and garish colors. They fail to convey the character and history of the places they pretend to represent. This one does anything but fail. (Belated) congrats to Deepu for getting this featured also!

No articles about Current events[edit]

Why on the earth there isn't any articles about current events in Kerala on en-wikipedia? Articles about events happened after 1970 are very scare.
