Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities

Welcome to WikiProject Cities

This WikiProject aims primarily to provide information and a consistent format for cities of the world. "Cities" include municipalities and other civil divisions, including cities, towns, villages, hamlets, townships, unincorporated communities, sections of municipalities, and neighborhoods. For specific details on U.S. municipalities, see U.S. municipality notes.

  1. Define departments.
  2. Visit the Capital City article of every Nation to rate it for priority and class with {{WPCities}}. (Note: This has largely been done for capital cities in North/South America, Europe, Africa, and part of the Mid-East. Still needs to be done for Asia & Oceania, and possibly the Caribbean.

  3. Then proceed toward most popular cities and regional centers, as well as capitals and important cities of sub-national administrative area.
