Guidelines[edit]

Here are some suggested guidelines for improving this article:

Path to FA[edit]

Since I've been asked to share my inputs here is what I feel:

  1. Use the heading format as mentioned in Kalimpong, Goa and Sikkim.
  2. Add references. If you are referering to content on websites, newspapers or books, it is imperative that it be listed under references.
  3. Tag images regarding the licencing. See the images on the above three pages for what I mean.
  4. Once this basic criteria is fulfilled, please inform me, I'll add some additional points.

I have been requested to do some edits of this article. I find already a number of persons have done nice work. I will surely do whatever I am able to do. --Bhadani 15:58, 23 May 2005 (UTC)
One more point. Instead of a html table it would be better to have an infobox or at least a wiki table. See {{Mumbai infobox}} for a good example. I can help with copyediting once more content is added and other basic requirements listed above by Nichalp, the Featured Article Generator ;) -- Sundar (talk · contribs) 04:37, Jun 21, 2005 (UTC)

Paragraph size[edit]

Avoid too small paragraphs; say which are only having two sentences. It is fair to have at least 15 lines for a paragraph

Content[edit]

I see a lot of work being done on this article but the problem is that none seem to be adding any new content. If we can do that , I think we can be a FA easily sumal 05:43, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Trichambaram temple[edit]

The annual temple festival, held in March 6 to march 20, is a colourful event.March 6 is kodiyettu (Starting of this festival), there will be events in Pookoth Nada (1 km from Trichambaram temple) for 14 days till the Koodipiriyal(Ending of this festival) on March 20

Is the date mentioned the festival dates for this year (2006)?

Is there a need to mention it? Jisha C J 07:28, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Trichambaram temple[edit]

Regarding festival date this yea - no idea!


The date is not relevant for the Festival. It's basically from Malayalm Month "Kumbham - 22 to Meenam - 6" which normally falls on March 6th and March 20 respectively. --Valsaraj 11:40, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

On St. Angelo's Fort[edit]

It's nice to inform everybody that today's Young World section of The_Hindu newspaper has reproduced a photograph (a view of Arabian sea from St. Angelo's Fort) appearing in Wikipedia page on Kannur Distritct. Here is the link: *St.Angelo's FortMANOJTV 13:54, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Malik Ibn Dinar Mosque[edit]

There is an article Malik Dinar Mosque which talks about a mosque in Kasaragod. Is this different from the Madayi Malik Dinar mosque mentioned in Kannur District article, or is there a confusion?

The "white marble from Mecca" story is repeated in the Cheraman Jama Masjid at Kodungallur (see section: Sights in the Kodungallur page). Is the white marble actually present in both the mosques?

Shijaz 20:16, 11 April 2006 (UTC) Dear Shijaz, The Kasaragod mosque is different from the Madayi mosque. --Prof TPMS (talk) 02:27, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Good Article Nomination[edit]

I have nominated Kannur District Article for good article nomination . I hope you will all vote to make it one. sumal 14:25, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

There are no references at all, add refs and footnotes. With only a quick glance, the rest of it looks fairly good. Rlevse 19:21, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
Avoid image overkill. The Transport section, which is pretty small, is squished by two photos. --cholmes75 (chit chat) 04:12, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Failed GA[edit]

This article requires references, the biggest problem with out references how fact be checked. Take this example, in the demographics section population in 2001 was 2.4 million in the infobox the 2004 population was 2.2 million. Additionally it needs a copy edit to remove POV/weasel wording and a reformat of image positioning. Suggest that the gallery at the end of the article be linked to a wikicommons cat. Gnangarra 04:38, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Roads[edit]

This article says - Thalassery –Kodagu road and the Thalassery – Mysore road are the other important roads. - there is only one road from Tellicherry to the Kerala border Koottupuzha via Iritty, Mattannur. see Thalassery Coorg Highway in List_of_State_Highways_in_Kerala - ShajiA (talk) 15:29, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Capitalization[edit]

The article is titled Kannur district, but it's written as Kannur District throughout the article. Does anyone know for sure which is correct? Tripnoted (talk) 05:27, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Dear Tripnoted, according to Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Capital letters, capitals are to be used only minimally. But Indians are more comfortable with capitals title cases. --Prof TPMS (talk) 02:26, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Kannur district/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

The first Indian mosque was built in 629 A.D, at the behest of Cheraman Perumal, during the life time of Muhammad (c. 571–632) in Kodungallur by Malik Bin Deenar.[11][12][13]

From [1]

But in this articel you are saying that Malik Bin Deenar built this mosque in 1124.

I think first one is correct.
