I just did a bunch more work on that one. Still needs work; see article's talk page, esp. about how article says term is derogatory, then constantly uses the word as if it were neutral (imagine the article on the word "nigger" being written that way!) I've removed the WikiProject tag from the top of the Talk page, since the job is definitely not done, and it looks bad to say we've edited it when it is still in this state... — SMcCandlish [talk] [contrib] 11:45, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
Tried to clean it up a bit more. I think I've mitigated the offensiveness; the word has to be used a few times in the article for clarity, but I got rid of the rest. IrisWings 04:13, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
This seems OK now although there is still lots of room for content improvement. "Coolie" is commonly used in scholarly historical articles; it's only offensive when used for people today, and is in common use in India as shown by the links. --Espoo 17:29, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Balikpapan. I have done most of the article, but there are some sections I don't know how to edit: the second paragraph of Airport is confusing, and Kariangau Industrial Zones has content which is either poorly written or shouldn't be there at all. Rintrah 23:37, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
This was a nightmare, still want someone to give this one more check. Trusilver 06:28, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
I've corrected a lot of language problems and done some copyediting and deleting of illogical parts, but it's still a nightmare because most of what it contains is unsourced and much of it is still unclear. I'm tempted to add {{RoughTranslation|Indonesian}} because there is no way of knowing what some parts mean without understanding the original that it was obviously translated from, http://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kota_Balikpapan. I made a request for help at the Indonesian talk page. --Espoo 02:20, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
