  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 28 September 2023, there are 29,424 articles within the scope of WikiProject Mexico, of which 102 are featured. This makes up 0.44% of the articles on Wikipedia and 0.97% of featured articles and lists. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etcetera, there are 83,118 pages in the project.

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.

Strategy Edit

Mexico articles by quality statistics Edit

General strategy Edit

  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.

Discussion forums Edit

  • /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.
