There are some other sites listed in other post. These are the main ones, but the list just got out of hand when combining all the sites.

Please enjoy these sites if you have not already. This can act as a "library" of sorts for information.
















This ought to get us started. Feel free to add some resources we may all enjoy!



Who's this William Williams fellow?

Seriously, BR86, a fine list.

Well done.

The online magazine Salon has started a new series on cities called "Dream City: How Should We Design the Cities of our Dreams?"

The first article basically sets the stage, outlining the shift in attitudes and reinvestment in cities, making a case that many of the big changes and big projects have been spearheaded by local citizens, rather than by governments and planners. The big problem, as outlined in the article, will be how to ensure that cities are affordable and not exclusive enclaves for the wealthy.

Anyway, it should be interesting to check in from time to time and see where this goes. I guess this could go in the resources page as well.

So I've been working on developing the Wikipedia pages for Nashville buildings and landmarks for some time, with the end goal of getting detailed articles for every building listed on this page: http://en.wikipedia....gs_in_Nashville

You'll note that a lot of the buildings do have pages, but most of them are just stub articles that don't have a lot of information about the building itself, and almost all are lacking images. Since I'm not actually in Nashville at the moment, that makes it kind of hard to go around taking good photos of the existing buildings, so I really need help in that area.

Anyway, just wanted to get the discussion started. If you're already registered as a Wikipedia editor, perhaps we can get enough interest to start a sub-project of Wikiproject Tennessee http://en.wikipedia.....26_task_forces

Also, if you want to hit me up on my Talk page, that's right here: http://en.wikipedia....er_talk:Nfutvol

Awesome, thanks guys. I'll definitely be making use of that info, Timmay.

With the licensing structure of Wikipedia, it's simplest if the person that takes the picture uploads it. If anyone wants to do an upload, but is unsure of how or the best way to integrate it into the article, just let me know and I'll be glad to lend a hand.

Okay, so here's a rough wish list...

Needs improved photos (Existing photos inadequate):

Fifth Third Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Third_Center_(Nashville)

L&C Tower - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_%26_Casualty_Tower

Nashville City Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nashville_City_Center
