Belize-related articles needing geographical coordinates[edit]

Based on a search of Wikipedia's articles related to Belize, I've found some articles that I believe are about places in Belize, and could usefully have geographical coordinates added.

The articles in question are listed in Category:Belize articles missing geocoordinate data. At the time of writing, some examples included:

  1. Chaa Creek
  2. Corozal Airport
  3. Dangriga Airport
  4. Goff's Caye
  5. Peini
  6. Port Loyola
  7. San José, Orange Walk District

...and there are many more, as well. At the time of posting this notice, there were 34 articles in this category needing geographical coordinates.

Why add coordinates?[edit]

By adding coordinates, a Wikipedia reader can easily view the location on a street map, nautical chart, topographic map, by satellite photo, realtime weather map, and in many other ways. Coordinate data makes an article eventually appear in various services such as Google Maps' Wikipedia overlay, Google Earth, and Wikipedia's own internal map service. Coordinate data also helps readers looking for geographically-based data, such as locations near a reference point, or related information.

How can I do it?[edit]

The articles are all marked with {{coord missing}} tags, which need to be replaced with {{coord}} tags that contain the location's latitude/longitude coordinates; or you might be able to add coordinates to an existing infobox. You can find out how to do this at the Wikipedia:Geocoding how-to for WikiProject members. Please let me know if this is useful, or if you have any questions! -- The Anome (talk) 09:37, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Belize/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Belize/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 01:29, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

List of 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games broadcasters[edit]

Hi I am trying to fill this article out with the Belize broadcaster of the games. Any information and links would be helpful! Intoronto1125TalkContributions 01:13, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Fry Jacks[edit]

In early December Carr76 created articles Fry Jacks and Fry jack about a dish in Belizian cuisine. The two articles are duplicates but not identical. They were both created as a copy/paste from content now at user:Carr76/sandbox 2 but have been edited independently since. I've put merge tags on them but I thought I'd give you a heads up.

Detailed census data finally published[edit]

The full 2010 census results are now (finally) available on the Statistical Institute of Belize website. In particular, the populations of all the municipalities can be found in this document. Kaldari (talk) 22:10, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Cougar[edit]

The naming of "Cougar" (should it be "Puma"?) is under discussion, see talk:Cougar -- 70.51.200.101 (talk) 08:00, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject Belize template[edit]

I've created a dedicated banner template for WikiProject Belize ({{WikiProject Belize}}) and proposed deprecating the use of the Belize task force parameter in the {{WikiProject Central America}} template. This should better align WikiProject Belize with the WikiProject guidelines. It will also give the project more flexibility and autonomy, for example, allowing WikiProject Belize to have its own task forces if desired. If you have any thoughts about this change, please join the discussion at Template talk:WikiProject Central America. Kaldari (talk) 03:13, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Belize/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Belize.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Belize, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.

Background[edit]

On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:27, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
