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

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Suggested Changes:

  • Begin shortening sections that are too long or contain too many details about particularities - moving excess material to subarticles
  • Begin improving sections on history and culture to give a more comprehensive view that doesn't dwell too long on particularities of certain musical genres or historical events
  • No lay person will know what a Köppen–Geiger temperature map is. Please just list the average temps through the seasons or something useful to lay people.
  • Also Mexico's neighbors to the North do not use Kilometers or Celsius. please list both km and miles,and C.and F. temperatures?

  • In the facts column list Spanish as the most spoken Language.
  • Use different sources and be more objective, the section for crime is minuscule in a country where week after week dozens of persons appear decapitated.

Coat of arms of Mexico
Mexico is a country in North America, bordered by the United States, Guatemala and Belize, and lying between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Pre-Columbian Mexico was home to many advanced civilizations before first contact with Europeans. From 1521 it was colonized by Spain, becoming an independent state three centuries later. September 16 is the country's independence day, commemorating the Cry of Dolores, a declaration which began the Mexican War of Independence in 1810.

Pictured is the coat of arms of Mexico, which depicts a Mexican golden eagle devouring a rattlesnake while perched on a prickly pear cactus. The eagle and snake motif is rooted in an Aztec legend.Illustration: Juan Gabino; vectorisation: Alex Covarrubias

Mexico's new President[edit]

Would an administrator update the infobox, to reflect that Mexico has a new president? GoodDay (talk) 12:38, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Hey, how about we make the beginning Mexico (Spanish: México [ˈmexiko] (About this soundlisten), unofficially called Méjico in a way of making it of a transliteration to the country's spelling officially the United Mexican States (Spanish: Estados Unidos Mexicanos, About this soundlisten ) ? That sounds like a good deal, doesn't it? :)
