Hey board members!

I just thought it would be a very good idea if everyone could spice up the Louisville metro area's wikipedia pages. I've tried and contributed some new information to the Pleasure Ridge Park wikipedia page. I think it would be a great idea if everyone could contribute and update their respective city/suburban/annexed suburban areas on wikipedia (PRP, Fern Creek, Jeffersontown, Valley Station, Newburg, Prospect, Crestwood, LaGrange, Brooks, etc YOU GET THE IDEA!).

I think the "population percentage chart" that is found on the Pleasure Ridge Park and many many other city profiles on wikipedia is a great tool to copy and use so viewers can easily see population trends and increases/decreases. It would seem very progressive and advantageous if the Louisville region was well represented on wikipedia with accurate updates about what is happening in the surrounding communities. I always find it very pleasant when I visit nice, updated pages on wikipedia about areas.

Check out this page on the Oklahoma City Metro Area! I really envision something like this to happen. I like the layout and area descriptions a lot!
Oklahoma City metropolitan area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I hope everyone will help out.

I also think the Louisville page is unattractive in some areas and could use some work. I know it's been mentioned to somehow get a new picture of the city on wikipedia. I think that when you first click the Louisville wikipedia page, there is a lot of writing and random history of the city in that first introductory section. I don't really like this, maybe everyone else does. I envision something concise and to the point that states the current population and maybe a few other interesting facts. I don't really like having to scroll down so far to find population statistics. I know I'm probably being very picky, but I always think that at the start of a new year, it's good to always give anything a new, fresh start!

Any suggestions or comments?

Thanks!

Do you all have Wikipedia accounts? I've been the primary editor for a lot of local Wiki pages and contributed photos to many others.

I think these article are pretty good:
Old Louisville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Downtown Louisville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Butchertown, Louisville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Highlands_(Louisville)

Overall I really like U of L's page, although I've been trying to remove some POV comments and condense it, as it is a pretty large page
University of Louisville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bellarmine's could use several addition pictures

Do you really the OKC metro page that much? Did you mean the main OKC page - it's pretty cool?

Oklahoma City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

BTW, I really love the "compass" at the bottom of every Lou neighborhood page

No, I don't have one, but I would be happy to help you as I have lots of knowledge about the city. I have been asked to collaborate on the wiki for some chicago hoods as well.

Yes, I meant the metro page. I don't like how there isn't much population statistics as there is on the Louisville metro page, but I guess I meant that I like the descriptions of the regions/cities/suburbs that are located in the different directions from oklahoma city.

Great idea, and it would be even better if more areas organized in this way... any Columbus, Georgia-Phenix City, Alabama folks out there reading this? Let's do it!
