Wikipedia:WikiProject Lagos

Project Lagos

Welcome to WikiProject Lagos! This project aims to expand, cleanup and wikify, better organize, and neutralize the point of view on articles related to Lagos. It is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page

ScopeEdit

This WikiProject aims primarily to provide information in consistent format for articles on places in Lagos, Nigeria. It is also a first test of the format established for Wikipedia:WikiProject London, to allow for some feedback before the template is copied for use for other cities.

ParentageEdit

The parents of this WikiProject are the WikiProject Cities and the WikiProject Nigerian communities. The Lagos project will probably generate a simpler template than the London project
