How About Making The Neighborhoods Section Better?
I am working to edit a number of neighborhood pages for Dallas. What is show on this box is really not the best descriptor of neighborhoods. To me, there are "macro neighborhoods," (East Dallas, North Dallas, Southeast Dallas, West Dallas, South Dallas, Oak Cliff, Lakewood, etc.) and within each of those are "micro neighborhoods," or actual neighborhoods like Junius Heights, Perry Heights, Winnetka Heights, etc. May I propose that, as part of a revamp I am going to do to the list of Dallas neighborhoods, that we simply catagorize neighborhoods by "North, South, East, and West," and then link those to pages listing the neighborhoods? May I also propose that we add the city's eight residential historic districts to this box, in lieu of some of the other neighborhoods?
I would like to create and maintain a Dallas Neighborhoods Portal that will eventually work on this. I have been research assistant to a good friend who is working on a book on subdivision development in Dallas. He is dealing with a Wikipedia block right now because of some issues on the Swiss Avenue article, but he is VinceLeibowitz and will probably be back on here when they get the issue with his block resolved. We have teamed up to tackle some of the neighborhood articles (or in most cases, lack of an article altogether). AnnexTX (talk) 17:55, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
What Constitutes What
This template is certainly open to variation / additions .. just please make proposals before messing. I would very much like input on exactly what constitutes a neighborhood, community, district, whatever.
Really, I would much rather just be told what goes where. I think I have most of them correctly positioned, but I certainly am no expert on all the areas listed.. I probably have some missing and what not, anyway. Help me out if you please. Drumguy8800 07:32, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
I would probably demote Munger Place to a neighborhood and add a community called Old East Dallas. That would include Munger Place, Junius Heights, Swiss Avenue, and Peak's Suburban Addition. Basically everything between Lakewood and Downtown. Lakewood's trickier because it refers to both a specific neighborhood (roughly between Mockingbird and Gaston and between Abrams and White Rock Lake) and generally to the area west of the lake and south of Mockingbird. Sometimes it can even refer to the original part of the Lakewood neighborhood, the very southern end near Lakewood Country Club. As you can probably tell, I live in east Dallas. --Radial 17:04, 12 January 2006 (UTC)
I went ahead and made the change I was talking about in the previous entry Radial 18:36, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
Tabbed Browsing Issues
Is anyone else having problems on the article pages switching between tabs? Is that not supposed to be possible? Whenever I click on another tab, it goes straight to that article instead of bringing up another subgroup.Thisischris 14:03, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
- Something to think about would be to have just hide/show sections with all but the current defaulted to hide. I'll wait and see what you have up your sleeve though Thisischris 20:33, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
