Proposed merger with WikiProject Amboseli Biosphere Reserve Project[edit]

Given the scope of the above project falls entirely within the scope of this project, and that this project has assessment and a few other advantages over that project as a project, I propose and support merging that project into this one. John Carter (talk) 17:16, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

  • I would support such a merger. As you say it makes sense since the Amboseli Biosphere Reserve Project falls totally within the scope of the WikiProject Kenya. --BelovedFreak 22:08, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Respectfully disagree with merger[edit]


As the lead author of the Amboseli Biosphere Reserve WikiProject, I'd vote to NOT merge it into the new WikiProject Kenya for several of reasons, namely:

>> The Amboseli ecosystem represents about 0.1% of the land area of Kenya. To have the project as what would appear to be the first substantive entry would seem to be a bit of tail-wagging-dog.

>> The Amboseli Biosphere Reserve WikiProject is intended inter alia to be a workspace for information exchange and updates by stakeholders in the ecosystem, as well as a source of information for the 'rest of the world'. I fear it would lose the first focus if it were embedded in another project.

>> At the moment, the WikiProject Kenya is more of a stub than a project, a good idea than a source of information. The project, in my view, should start with some substantive information on geography, ecology, history and sociology of the whole country, rather than a quite specialised coverage of one of its corners.

>> Given the current political situation, it would seem, quite frankly, frivolous to show-case an albeit important wildlife-based ecosystem, rather than reporting on the situation: time lines, causes, current status, prognosis. See, for example, Ushahidi.

I do think the WikiProject Kenya is a good idea, as it would be for all countries. I wonder if the overall WikiEditors would consider providing a general country template on which information could be hung?

Hope that helps.

Best regards, Harvey Croze

While I can understand the reservations, I believe the following considerations are extremely relevant.
As it stands, the Amboseli project is clearly and obviously eligible for deletion. One minimum requirement is that a project have at least one listed member. At present, that project has none whatsoever, not even the above editor. This despite the fact that the above project has existed for almost a year. At present, I respectfully regret to say that that project is more than eligible for outright deletion right now. Personally, I do not believe that the rather long tether that project has been given to date will necessarily be extended much further, before deletion is considered. It's utter inability to gain even a single member over that period is, I believe, more than enough evidence to verify that that project itself is little more than an attempt at a project, and apparently a failed attempt. The fact that the above editor is also one of the few if any editors invovled, and that he is the author of a book which that project apparently deems as one of its primary source materials, also could be seen as calling into question the motivation behind the project, and whether it might, unfortunately, be a self-publicization effort. That could be another motivation for deletion. I respectfully submit that that project, as it currently exists, completely fails at even the most basic level, that being a key to collaboration. Despite having existed for only days short of a full year, it is still to all appearances a one-man effort. John Carter (talk) 13:58, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Changes to the WP:1.0 assessment scheme[edit]

As you may have heard, we at the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial Team recently made some changes to the assessment scale, including the addition of a new level. The new description is available at WP:ASSESS.

  • The new C-Class represents articles that are beyond the basic Start-Class, but which need additional references or cleanup to meet the standards for B-Class.
  • The criteria for B-Class have been tightened up with the addition of a rubric, and are now more in line with the stricter standards already used at some projects.
  • A-Class article reviews will now need more than one person, as described here.

Each WikiProject should already have a new C-Class category at Category:C-Class_articles. If your project elects not to use the new level, you can simply delete your WikiProject's C-Class category and clarify any amendments on your project's assessment/discussion pages. The bot is already finding and listing C-Class articles.

Please leave a message with us if you have any queries regarding the introduction of the revised scheme. This scheme should allow the team to start producing offline selections for your project and the wider community within the next year. Thanks for using the Wikipedia 1.0 scheme!

Wikipedia 0.7 articles have been selected for Kenya[edit]

Wikipedia 0.7 is a collection of English Wikipedia articles due to be released on DVD, and available for free download, later this year. The Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team has made an automated selection of articles for Version 0.7.

We would like to ask you to review the articles selected from this project. These were chosen from the articles with this project's talk page tag, based on the rated importance and quality. If there are any specific articles that should be removed, please let us know at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.7. You can also nominate additional articles for release, following the procedure at Wikipedia:Release Version Nominations.

A list of selected articles with cleanup tags, sorted by project, is available. The list is automatically updated each hour when it is loaded. Please try to fix any urgent problems in the selected articles. A team of copyeditors has agreed to help with copyediting requests, although you should try to fix simple issues on your own if possible.

We would also appreciate your help in identifying the version of each article that you think we should use, to help avoid vandalism or POV issues. These versions can be recorded at this project's subpage of User:SelectionBot/0.7. We are planning to release the selection for the holiday season, so we ask you to select the revisions before October 20. At that time, we will use an automatic process to identify which version of each article to release, if no version has been manually selected. Thanks!

African cinema task force[edit]

An African cinema task force has been proposed at WikiProject Films, which would include the cinema of Kenya. Interested editors are encouraged to sign up - if there is enough interest, then the task force will be created! Many thanks, Girolamo Savonarola (talk) 03:43, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Help request: 145 Kenya-related articles needing geographical coordinates[edit]

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

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

  1. Meru Central District
  2. Meru North District
  3. Nairobi City Stadium
  4. Naro Moru river
  5. Nzoia River
  6. Rahimtulla Tower
  7. Solar Ice Rink

...and there are many more, as well. At the time of posting this notice, there were 145 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 I can help in any way. -- The Anome (talk) 22:43, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Which photos are needed?[edit]

Since I'm staying in Kenya until August next year I can help out with photos. So if there are any requests for photos or anything else, just let me know. At best per email. --ElRaki (talk) 14:18, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

New article[edit]

I added the new article Juma and the Magic Jinn to this WikiProject. -- Suntag 18:09, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Coordinators' working group[edit]

Hi! I'd like to draw your attention to the new WikiProject coordinators' working group, an effort to bring both official and unofficial WikiProject coordinators together so that the projects can more easily develop consensus and collaborate. This group has been created after discussion regarding possible changes to the A-Class review system, and that may be one of the first things discussed by interested coordinators.

All designated project coordinators are invited to join this working group. If your project hasn't formally designated any editors as coordinators, but you are someone who regularly deals with coordination tasks in the project, please feel free to join as well. — Delievered by §hepBot (Disable) on behalf of the WikiProject coordinators' working group at 05:47, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Redone Deleted Article[edit]

I had an article on The Village Market Nairobi speedily deleted under G11( Blatant Advertisement). After some discussion i have redone the page and tried to make it factual and removed the opinionated language. I would like you to look at the draft for any criticism. This is the redone article and I don't want to save and upload it lest it is deleted again. Check it out here: I have just discovered that i can edit articles and add more to put out more information on Kenyan stuff and things. There's so much that is needed done.Wamaina (talk) 19:49, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

The Kenya Portal[edit]

Hello everyone, I've done a little work to the Portal (not much) and I hope it meets with the Projects approval. I don't know who manages it, but they've done a great job. It looks good. I've co-ordinated the colours with the national flag and added a Panorama box (Kenya has great ones of these) and I hope all like it. Oh, I've also increased the copy in the intro box as well to fill out the empty space produced by the picture. Again, hope meets with approval. If I've trodden on anybody's toes please let me know straight away. If you wish, I can have a look at upgrading the Portal boxes contents as well. I'll await your instructions - just in case! :-) Take care everyone and hopefully speak soon Wiki User 68 (talk) 00:31, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your efforts, looks really nice! I hope you don't mind my revert. Keep on improving the Portal. Best regards, --R.Schuster (talk) 10:41, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects.

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 Kenya/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

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

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Kenya/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 00:42, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Kenya articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Kenya articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

Hello everyone. I was wondering whether we could work together to update the Kisumu page which currently reads like a travel brochure, which is very undeserving for a leading town in East Africa. If possible could you constructively help me make it better, I am hoping to get together a work group of contributers to help out so that it is something close to the Nairobi page. I will be working on this for the next week or two, if you have some spare time I will be glad if you could help me open up Kisumu to the world. Thanks!--Krator1 (talk) 22:41, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Counties v. Districts: The way Forward.[edit]

The background for this runs as such. Under Kenya's Provincial Administration System there were 46 legally recognized Districts, plus Nairobi Province. As far as I know all have Wikipedia articles. These districts pretty much coincide with the 47 counties introduced by the new constitution of Kenya for the purposes of Devolution. A few of these counties have separate wikipedia articles despite covering the same geographical territory. Further to that all, or nearly all the above Districts have been sub-divided multiple times to the point I reckon at last count Kenya could have well over 300 districts. Some of these sub divided districts have wikipedia articles some don't. Furthermore, with 2 bills on Devolved government and the future of the Provincial Administration as a whole held up by Presidential vetoes, its likely the number and the names, of the districts will change together with the command structure of the Provincial Administration which to a format radically different to what's being used on Wikipedia. If you fancy having a look at the possible new structure, I suggest looking up the bills on the bill tracker page of Aside from merging and renaming District pages and County pages that cover territory that will become counties, what do we do when the new Provincial administration takes hold? What do we do with articles of districts that get merged, or done away with altogether? Finally what do we do with the Provinces articles as they certainly won't exist in 2013?

Lake Victoria ships[edit]

In 2011 I created or greatly expanded articles about various Lake Victoria ferries built and launched at Kisumu; from SS William Mackinnon in 1890 to MV Umoja and MV Uhuru in 1965. Two of the more historic ships, SS Nyanza built in 1907 and SS Usoga built in 1911, were photographed still at their moorings in Kisumu in 2007 and are published online here: Death of a Fleet at Kisumu. Please can any Wikipedian WP:VERIFY whether Nyanza and Usoga still survive?

Various historic and recent photographs of past and present Lake Victoria ships are published online, but Wikimedia Commons has none. If there is any Wikipedian who has photographs of Lake Victoria shipping that they will donate, or if there is a Wikipedian able to visit Lake Victoria and photograph its ships, that would improve the quality of Wikipedia's articles about the lake's shipping history over the last 123 years. Good recent photographs Nyanza and Usoga would be particularly helpful.

2013 General Elections Pages[edit]

Hi There. Just now there is a huge plethora of pages (many of which are largely blank) covering the general elections that Kenya had in Kenya at the national and county level for each county. What I mean is there is one page for say Nairobi County, there is page for the Senatorial Elections, a separate page for Gubernatorial elections, and County elections as so on. As a matter of making it easier to retrieve, and update, may I Suggest that all these pages be collapsed (merged) into the relevant page? I feel it would be easier to then make it easier for folks with relevant local knowledge on the counties to fill in the necessary information and also make learning about this new system of governance easier (navigation wise)Kimemia Maina (talk) 10:20, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Proposing New Page: Gender Disparities in Kenyan Education[edit]

I propose to create a new Wiki entry called “Gender Disparities in Kenyan Education”, which currently doesn’t exist in any form. Currently the only articles related to this are Education in Kenya (parent article), Sex Differences in Education (parent article) and Women in Kenya. The combination of studying education in Kenya with a concentration in gender disparities, particularly the disparities that females face, does not hold a presence in Wikipedia. My article will first try and define what gender disparities in education are and what kind of problems they face, broadly including female presence in different levels of education, difference in sex success rates in school, and discrimination different sexes face while in school. It will then elaborate on general statistics in transition and overall academic performance in both males and females and delve into the overall difference in the quality of education that Kenyans face in terms of sex. Next it will examine the differences in these outcomes through different levels of education, address the challenges of gender disparities in education and their subsequent consequences. Finally, I will suggest some possible solutions to help Kenya in pursuing gender equality in education.

I plan on drawing from “Girls’ and women’s education in Kenya. Gender perspectives and trends. Nairobi: UNESCO”, by Chege, F. N., & Sifuna, D. N. (2006); “Impact of Free Primary Education in Kenya A Case Study of Private Schools in Kibera” by James Tooley, Pauline Dixon, and James Stanfield; “Women, men, and the division of power: A study of gender stratification in Kenya. Social Forces” by L.A. Cubbins; “Combating Poverty and Inequality: Structural Change, Social Policy and Politics. Manuscript.

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Expert attention[edit]

This is a notice about Category:Kenya articles needing expert attention, which might be of interest to your WikiProject. It will take a while before the category is populated. Iceblock (talk) 19:00, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Githima / Village[edit]

There's a new stub for Githima Village which seems from the coordinates of Gatundu to be a different place from Githima. Perhaps someone familiar with Kenyan geography could sort out a better article title and hatnotes to distinguish and link the two? Over to you. PamD 16:20, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Jonathan Mwangangi Mueke[edit]

Could any editors assist in cleaning up the WP:BLP of the Deputy Governor of Nairobi County Jonathan Mwangangi Mueke which appears to be written as an autobiography? AusLondonder (talk) 03:32, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 01:12, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Reassess Kenya[edit]

Please reassess Kenya because I think it should be a B now. MediaKill13 (talk) 07:52, 24 June 2016 (UTC)


User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. Would anybody here be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 20:02, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Decorations and Orders Kenya[edit]

Considering starting an article that goes further into orders and medals awarded by the President of Kenya and it's history. Would also like to maintain a list on who gets conferred the above. Not sure whether this would be in conflict with Orders,_decorations,_and_medals_of_Kenya. What do you think of this? Thelost byte (talk) 11:33, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
