@Everyone:

The article is heavily written repetitively and obviously advancing CPU and related articles, its like CPU marketing platform — Preceding unsigned comment added by Count of Iloilo (talkcontribs) 00:33, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

I just dug up a good book with details about Iloilo City's economy circa 1850 up to around 1911, if somebody has time to read up and include some of the information written in it, that would be great. Don't quote the article, by the way - I'm not sure of the copyright status. Just use it to improve the Iloilo City article.

Philippine Social History - Global Trade and Local Transformations published by the Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAAA)/Ateneo de Manila University Press, pp 297 - 358, Alfred W. McCoy & Ed C. de Jesus

I'll try rewriting this page in a month or two if no one does -- and only then, I'm kind of busy processing papers at the moment, hence the inability to do it myself.

Has anybody noticed or is it just me that finds the Iloilo City article dull and rambling although in prose, it almost is boringly unreadable. I tired of reading after a few paragraphs, I'm pointing particularly at the city's history area.

Great job with the cleanup so far! On the other hand, you need not post the entire parts removed or edited out, just point to the revision history page [[1]], it's already there. Don't forget to use the actual article page and not the Talk:Iloilo City's revision history page. Finally, just post the reason for the edit, or if including it is really important, summarize or use excerpts. :)

For readability, don't include unecessary cruft in the talk page, we have the revision history for that.

@Ady001 I've heard the term "Metro Iloilo" being used in radio, and on some official publications, I'll try searching for them, if you'd like. As always, don't take my word for it, nor on wikipedia itself - double check though, I'm saying this 'cause I don't have the actual evidence. The use however is not commonplace outside government or media, use your own discretion.

I've seen the article of the city of Venice, and a lot, the pattern I used to edit the article of Ciudad de Iloilo/Iloilo City was same as the City of Venice, but not the info box. A22ount (talk) 09:09am, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Lifestyle sectionEdit

I went ahead and removed the "Lifestyle" section. It was poorly written, read like an advertisment, and was too rambling. If anyone considers adding it, give it a _big_ rewrite. Hotdogger 22:18, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

--Is Metro Iloilo already an approved parlance? According to the Philippine page, there is only Metro Manila and Metro Cebu.Ady001 16:20, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Consider moving?Edit

I think some of the information regarding the province of Iloilo should be moved to that wiki. It really needs more information. --JohnAriola 16:11, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Mayor Jerry Trenas Criminal CaseEdit

It is TIME for groups to expose irregularities of Big Fishes. Without fight Iloilo would suffer. Imagine, there is so much poverty in this City, but the Mayor had high time to galivant to Taiwan and of course, these RISE could just sue him for petty RA 6713 violation. --Florentino floro 11:30, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

why filipino chose this kind of city mayor he have gud character ? any body can tell me about this person my site is lovepreet088@yahoo.com ........  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 112.198.79.3 (talk) 00:44, 12 September 2010 (UTC) 

Coal Plant suit against TrenasEdit

I removed the section about the lawsuit filed against Trenas. It doesn't fit in an generic article about the city. It would be appropriate for an article on the politics of Iloilo or on Mayor Trenas. Here it just strikes me as a political jab.--Bruce Hall 02:42, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Content removalEdit

These are the content I removed from the page:

Real EstateEdit

Iloilo city has numerous subdivisions, including (in no particular order) Ledesco Village and Puerto Real in Lapaz, Metropolis and Alta Tierra in Jaro, La Concha in Molo and Aurora in the city proper. Megaworld Corp. meanwhile has purchased the old airport site and plans to transform the site into a new commercial, residential and entertainment district.

subject for removal (suggestion)Edit

might i ask if the iloilo provincial capitol picture be removed? though it is located in the city, the capitol is not representative of the city since iloilo city is a chartered city. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vinz 014 (talkcontribs) 05:02, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

I don't know much of Ilo-Ilo. If its not detrimental to remove that image, go on. --βritand&βeyonce (talkcontribs) 05:16, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Best Places to Live in the Phillippines?Edit

The introduction reads Iloilo City recently topped a survey by MoneySense Magazine as one of the "Best Place to Live in the Philippines". But the two footnotes on this sentence do not support this statement. They say nothing about the MoneySense ranking. Also, the only other reference I can find to this ranking is this - http://moneysense.com.ph/editors-note/best-places-to-live/ - which references an article from April 2008. Iloilo City is listed fifth on the list, not at the top of the list. Omc (talk) 15:02, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

5th Place is "top" enough for meMagsungai (talk)--Magsungai (talk) 18:17, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Jaro Evangelical Church and the Central Philippine University have some historical signicance in Iloilo City and could be conisdered landmarks of the City. However, Doane Baptist Church lacks these qualities, to justify being included in the Cityscape. The "Cityscapre" title should eb replaced with Historical Landmark. Also a specific Mansion is mentioned, which is not as well-known. Other more importance colonial houses should have been included instead. The best way to mention this mansion is to include it as an example of the mansions in Distrito de Jaro. --TLS MMM (talk) 07:44, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

There is no need of a citation for the title "La Muy Leal y Noble Ciudad" since it is already a historical fact. This fact is attestaed also by the seal of the city, the present and the ancient one, both of which carry the title.--TLS MMM (talk) 08:48, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

There was a request for appropriate citation after the phrase "an agricultural experimental station established at La Paz in 1888" in the second paragraph of the introductory part of this article. However, the phrase forms part of a sentence, which already has a proper citation. There is no need to have another citation for the above-mentioned phrase. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TLS MMM (talkcontribs) 08:54, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Section on Central Philippine UniversityEdit

The Section on Central Philippine University was shortened. It has a separate article. which could be accessed by clicking the name of the University in that section in this article on Iloilo City. It is not necessary to include many details therein.--TLS MMM (talk) 09:07, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

On photos of Iloilo Mission HospitalEdit

The photo of Iloilo Mission Hospital in the section on American and Japanese Period was removed, since there is also another picture of this institution in the section about Medical Facilties. Having two photos of the same institutions gives a tone of over-emphasizing an institution or the interested group connected to it. This does not give a fair presentation of information regarding the city, and regarding other similar institutions institutions in it, which might be equally or even more significant. It might be good to place the deleted photo in another Wikipedia article, which is solely dedicated to Iloilo Mission Hospital.

--TLS MMM (talk) 11:09, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Removal of some information in the articleEdit

  • Major Investors of Iloilo (diff) - As per WP:CRYSTAL, most of the items in the section clearly fall under product announcements and rumors. Even if there are corresponding sources, I'm inclined to believe these are not especially notable that would warrant inclusion in the article (see Wikipedia:Notability#Common circumstances).
  • Initial paragraph in Economy section (diff) - economic might, strategic, excellent, have a major impact, most active - These words inherently introduce bias (see WP:WORDS) and are not neutral (see WP:NPOV). Xeltran (talk) 09:09, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Added an ARTICLE on INDIAN TEMPLE in ILOILOEdit

it is an exotic place, important for the fast-growing needs of Indian community in Iloilo, serves as link of cultural-integration, a tourist place for locals and visitors, this place is important for many reasons. Vdhillon (talk) 18:30, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Include tourism sites outside Iloilo City?Edit

I removed the lengthy list of tourism sites that are not in Iloilo City. I think that the Iloilo City article should only include information about things in Iloilo City. User:Metro Iloilo Guimaras 888 disagrees, clearly, and reverted my changes without comment. Therefore to avoid an WP:Edit War I seek an explanation a WP:Consensus. Should this article be limited strictly to Iloilo City sites? If there are no comments, than WP:Silence in consent I will revert User:Metro Iloilo Guimaras 888 recently reverts. We need to remember too that Wikipedia is neither a guide nor a directory --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 13:22, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

  • I agree with User:Iloilo Wanderer on this. This article is about the city only. Nearby attractions should be added to the respective LGU's. Alternatively, a comprehensive list may be included in the Metro Iloilo-Guimaras article. -- P 1 9 9   17:14, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
I would not suggest simply moving the lists to another article without editing. After all, Wikipedia is not a place for comprehensive lists. See Wikipedia:NOT, specifically WP:NOTDIRECTORY, which says "Wikipedia is not a directory of everything in the universe that exists or has existed", and WP:NOTGUIDE which says "Notable locations may meet the inclusion criteria, but the resulting articles need not include every tourist attraction, restaurant, hotel or venue, etc. While travel guides for a city will often mention distant attractions, a Wikipedia article for a city should only list those that are actually in the city. If you do wish to help write a travel guide, your contributions would be welcome at our sister project, Wikivoyage." There are other places that have comprehensive list of tourism sites, such as tourism and government websites. We can and should link to those. We should not reproduce their content here. We are an encyclopedia which means to be included material must meet the inclusion criteria. --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 09:54, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
With no other comments, it seems that we have reached a WP:Consensus. I will put a second note on User:Metro Iloilo Guimaras 888 page so that he has a change to comment if he wants. I will then remove the non-Iloilo City tourism sites. --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 01:12, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately, User:Metro Iloilo Guimaras 888 has made an edit contrary to the consensus above and has not participated in this conversation, despite repeated invitations. Can anyone entice Metro Iloilo Guimaras 888 to do so? --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 17:54, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Unsourced travel guide information removedEdit

Content should be based on independent reliable sources and focus on a succinct summary of the most significant encyclopedic information. It should not include a comprehensive listing of every local business, unless details about significant aspects have been covered in independent reliable sources. These aspects could be added as sourced prose. Also, Wikipedia is not Wikivoyage and does not contain detailed hotel and restaurant information (again except notable cases with independent coverage).

Rockefeller image in "American colonial era" - removedEdit

The recently added image is simply redundant, as the information is already covered in the CPU image caption to the left, and - very detailed - in the main text. The image is primarily decorative, and this specific section is already crammed with several images ("sandwiching" problems of text between images to the left and right). Another image, especially one without unique encyclopedic purpose, just doesn't fit in - and is undue weight for this aspect. I have removed the redundant image once again. Please discuss here.

Central Philippine UniversityEdit

This part of the section on Education was removed due to the fact that the same information is also found in a separate Wikipedia Article on Central Philippine University:


The university ranks number one in Western Visayas region with 2 Commission on Higher Education (Philippines) Centers of Excellence designated programs in Agriculture and Business Administration and 4 Commission on Higher Education (Philippines) Centers of Development designated programs in Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, & Teacher Education.[1][2][3][4]

 
Central Philippine University College of Nursing which was founded as Union Mission Hospital Training School for Nurses (Iloilo Mission Hospital) in 1906 is the First School of Nursing in the Philippines.

Central Philippine University holds many firsts in the Philippines in some of the units that it established - the CPU Philippine Center for Packaging Engineering and Technology (CPU PC-PET) (first of its kind in South East Asia); Central Philippine University College of Agriculture, Resources and Environmental Sciences (first government recognized agricultural school outside Luzon); Central Philippine University Republic (CPU Republic) (first and oldest organized student government in South East Asia); CPU TV Channel (first university-based TV Channel in Asia); Central Philippine University College of Theology (first Baptist theological seminary in the Philippines); and Iloilo Mission Hospital (the university hospital of the university) (first American and Protestant hospital in the Philippines).

The university enrolls and is widely known to foreign students who wants to study in Panay and Western Visayas with 122 foreign students studying from 15 countries in the world.[5] The university is associated and has produced people who became notable in their respective fields - Perfecto Yasay Jr. (Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines), National Artists Ramon Muzones (for Literature) and Leonor Orosa-Goquingco (for Dance), Leonor Briones (Secretary of Education of the Philippines under President Duterte's administration), Jose Vasquez Aguilar (The first Filipino recipient of the Ramon Magsaysay Award (Asian equivalent of Nobel Prize) and also first awardee of the said award (Ramon Magsaysay Award) for Government Service category for his work as the "Father of the Community School Movement"), among others."


There seems to be an attempt to overemphasize the figure of this particular University in the section on Education in the Article on Iloilo City, which underrates other institutions. Whatever the intention of the contributor, the attempt gives an impression that the contributor is personally connected with the Central Philippine University. this attempts does not give a true picture of the state of the City's education.
