edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Brisbane:

  • The lead is too short and does not summarise some important parts of the article. There is information in geography, governance, economy etc... that would do well to be mentioned here
  • Brisbane has a very dark history with regards to Aborigines and the traditional Indigenous groups in the area...colonial history is important why is none of this mentioned?
  • Major editing is required to incorporate History, Geography, Governance, Economy, Education, Culture, Infrastructure of all of the surrounding LGAs incorporating the entire Brisbane Metropolitan Area.
  • Stubby paras need combining or expanding
  • "The lower population...now frequently replaced by steel or concrete. This section needs inline citations
  • "Brisbane's economy has white-collar and blue-collar industries" Doesn't sound particularly interesting (Don't all cities?) Perhaps a rewrite of this section which seems to be more about urban geography than economy.
  • University para could be expanded to be more interesting than a prose list. This also need sourcing.
  • Venues para - needs sourcing and rewriting for clarity
  • Annual events - needs sourcing
  • Media - inline cites
  • Media - add information on Community Radio stations
  • There is a list of private hospitals but not of the larger public ones?
  • Transport - needs an extensive rewrite to improve the prose and needs inline citations for much of the section.
  • Utilities - choppy paras
  • No information as to what the proposed pipeline is and where it runs
  • The climate data table has significant errors. It sources the BOM but according to the Bureaus Brisbane regional office the city's annual rainfall is much higher than the amount in wiki. It also has less sunshine annual hours. Not 3000 but closer to 2730.
  • Historical Population information

Actually I'm pretty sure I coined the term Brisvegas in 1997[edit]

It's pretty simple actually. I was at a party/dinner/gathering of friends and friends of friends. We were talking about southeast Queensland now having two casinos, one in the Gold Coast - Jupiter's Casino and the new on in Brisbane - The Treasury. I was lamenting the fact that we should now probably rename the city Brisvegas. Everyone laughed but there were a couple there who had the opportunity to spread the term to a wider audience because they were breakfast radio hosts on a very popular radio station. After their success in Brisbane, they went to Perth to host there. I assume the term was spread across Australia within the space of a few years. Their initials are T and Z, but yeah I coined the term Brisvegas, cool huh? Cjreal (talk) 08:30, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Historical Population[edit]

An historical population table needs to be added to the article. Can someone put this on the to do list? Thanks PANewman (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.78.66.126 (talk) 17:32, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Nevermind, I put it on the list myself. Feel free to delete the item if I'm mistaken. Thanks. PANewman (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.78.66.126 (talk) 17:34, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Traditional name[edit]

I've added the traditional name for Brisbane in the Yagerra language, however there is no pronunciation guide. This would probably need an expert! I've just used the two pronunciations given on the State Library website. It may make sense to include this in the info box too. Maxxisti (talk) 04:45, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
