  WikiProject Mexico is the WikiProject dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to Mexico. It encompasses all articles, categories and images related to Mexico, including the Mexico Portal. The goals of this group are to provide guidelines and recommendations for Mexico related articles; to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Mexico by creating, expanding, and maintaining articles; and to serve as a central point of discussion for Mexico related issues in Wikipedia. To become a member simply add your name to the list below.

As of 31 May 2020, there are 24,714 articles within the scope of WikiProject Mexico, of which 92 are featured. This makes up 0.41% of the articles on Wikipedia and 0.99% of featured articles and lists. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etcetera, there are 67,660 pages in the project.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.

Subject structure and navigation
Refine and maintain the Outline of Mexico, a key guide on Wikipedia to Mexico as a subject. It serves as a table of contents, summary, and topic outline of coverage on the political entity Mexico and is the most useful tool on Wikipedia for exploring and understanding fundamental material about Mexico (and how it fits together) on Wikipedia. Its purpose is an important one: it simply enables readers to see at a glance how the subject of Mexico is broken down, what the component topics are, and how they relate to each other - that is, how information on Mexico is organized (here, and in the world-at-large). It is a site map and outline of knowledge that demystifies the subject known as "Mexico". Because of its central role in the presentation of Wikipedia's coverage of this subject, it is very important to develop and maintain it to the highest level of quality: to help readers improve their conceptual awareness and understanding of Mexico as well as find their way around this subject on Wikipedia. For examples of other pages in this set, see Outline of France, Outline of Thailand, Outline of Japan, Outline of Taiwan, and Outline of Iceland, all of which are currently completed to a higher level of quality than this page. In other words, it's getting its ass kicked: the Outline of Mexico is incomplete, needs your editing contributions, and is especially in need of maps and pictures.

Mexico articles by quality statisticsEdit


  1. Bring our identified core topic articles (about 160) up to an agreed standard of quality. This work is coordinated through the COTF.
  2. Add a further list of "key topics" which includes many more specific subjects (important historical figures, etc.), as discussed here.
  3. Integrate suitable featured articles and the key quality articles identified by our contacts with WikiProjects into the core or key lists.
  4. Organize the articles in a coherent way, and identify any significant missing topics or articles needing urgent review. Integrate articles with suitable support material (lists, etc.).
  5. Identify any possible publication problems, agree on suitable publishers, pricing, media.
  6. Issue a final list of articles for publication. Ideally these would be reviewed by subject experts, and validated versions identified before publication and publish, on DVD, CD, paper or some combination.

Strategy consensusEdit

State names

  • Mexican states are mostly located at (e.g.) [[Statename]]. See earlier discussion at Talk:States of Mexico.
  • If the state name is not the primary topic, then the article name is [[Statename (state)]]

Municipality names

  • For some states it is always [[Municipalityname Municipality]]
  • For some states it is [[Municipalityname Municipality]] only if disambiguation is needed
  • If further disambiguation is needed it is [[Municipalityname Municipality, Statename]]

City names

When disambiguation is not required, city articles are at their base name: e.g, Hermosillo, Coatzacoalcos. If disambiguation with another city (Mexican or foreign) is needed, use the "comma, state" format: Nogales, Sonora, Nogales, Veracruz, Nogales, Arizona. If a state and a city share a name, use the "comma, state" location for the city and the undisambiguated location for the state. e.g., Veracruz, Veracruz (the city) and Veracruz (the state). For ease of linking, most of the conceivable redirects are already in place: Aguascalientes (state), San Luis Potosí (city), etc.

General strategy and discussion forumsEdit

  • /Terminology: Discussion forum for terminology and translation issues. For example: ministers or secretaries? Federal deputies or congressmen? ¿El jefe delegacional en Álvaro Obregón?
  • /Strategy: Strategy and structure. For policy discussions on how to title articles, how to categorise, etc.
  • /Community: Noticeboard for editors interested in Mexican articles. Basically, a community forum: use it to list articles you'd like other participants to take a look at or get a second opinion on, call attention to content disputes, post alerts, or advertise your willingness to meet up in (e.g.) Acapulco next month.
