Newcomer tasks: change "geography" to "regions"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Our ambassadors have pointed out that in the ORES topics, the header "Geography" is confusing because it causes people to ask articles about geographical features (e.g. mountains, cities, rivers). The results that users get when they choose a Geography topic are articles about anything related to that geography (e.g. people, arts, politics).

We want to change the header from "Geography" to "Regions", which we think will be more clear.

Event Timeline

Should we just change the text, or consider this as removing a topic and adding a new one (e.g. for people who have selected Geography, should that be preserved?)

@Tgr -- I think we should just change the text of the header in the filter.

Right, sorry, this is a header, not a topic. I asked before thinking.
