I have now edited several hundred stubs on Indian villages as per copyedit requests. I do not understand the point of creating all these content-free articles. I have merged the worst few of them into the somewhat more substantial article on their districts and left the rest in the best shape I could. I suggest a more systematic approach. Create a dataset that includes demographic, geographic and other data. Then write a little code to generate standard articles from the data, with an appropriate infobox, sections, references, etc. To imagine that manual efforts will produce anything reasonable for the 10s of thousands of villages is a real reach. Little (nothing?) would be lost by dumping the existing set, or at least those that don't already have an infobox. Feedback encouraged. Lfstevens (talk) 17:30, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
- We have stubs on the little towns (or barely even then) in the US, England and first-world nations. At the very least, I think there's old census books that acknowledge the existence of these towns so I don't see the harm of including them. There's going to be a point where India finally gets their data put up in an electronic format the way the US does with its census and when it does, they will be a lot of information that can be added here. What I really hope is that people working on Wikis in the smaller local Indian languages can take that information and present it to the people in those areas so they have something to learn and add to. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 01:50, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
- Some data regarding this is already available here: https://data.gov.in/catalog/all-india-pincode-directory . I am interested in taking up this task, but would need some assistance about doing this automation of creating articles and infoboxes leveraging this information. Are there any guidelines or tutorials available on this? Vishal0soni (talk) 06:11, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.
Thanks, and happy editing!
@Titodutta: Is there any mandatory to add the sections in the order specified at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Indian_cities#Sections? Also, as per above section can we add a new section called Tourism/Landmarks/Cityscape (specified in Hyderabad GA article)? More views needed.--Vin09 (talk) 04:34, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
- User:Vin09, in my opinion that is not a policy or guideline, but suggestions or recommendations, you may see Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/Settlements: Article structure, which is similar. --Tito Dutta (talk) 05:44, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
- Vin09, sorry for the delayed response. There is no specific order as Titodutta said above. If you go through various city FAs you will find that the order varies greatly. Sometimes "Education" is included under "Demographics" and sometimes it is not. This varies from article to article. Sometimes, some topics have special sections or sub-sections which you won't find in other articles. For example, Kerala has a sub-section called "Elephants". So, each article is written in a way that serves the topic best. Cheers, Yash! 16:17, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
