Wikitravel:Travellers' pub

From Wikitravel
(Redirected from PUB)
Jump to: navigation, search

The Travellers' pub is the place to ask questions when you're confused, lost, afraid, tired, annoyed, thoughtful, or helpful. Please check the FAQ and Help page before asking a question, though, since that may save your time and others'.

Please add new questions at the bottom of the page and sign your post by appending four tildes (~~~~) to it, but otherwise plunge forward!

  • If you have a question or suggestion about a particular article, try using talk pages to keep the discussion specific to that article.

Please sweep the pub Keeping the Pub clean is a group effort. If we have too many conversations on this page, it will get too noisy and hard to read. If you see an old conversation (i.e. dormant for a month or more) that could or should be moved to another page, please do so, and note there that it has been swept in from the pub.

  • A question regarding a destination article should be swept to that article's discussion page
  • A discussion regarding a policy or the subject of an expedition can be swept to that policy or expedition discussion page
  • A simple question asked by a user can be swept to that user's talk page, but consider if the documentation needs a quick update to make it clearer for the next user with the same question.
  • A pointer to a discussion going on elsewhere, such as a notice of a star nomination or or a request to comment on another talk page, can be removed when it is two months old. Any discussion that occurred in the pub can be swept to where the main discussion took place.

Any discussions that do not fall into any of these categories, and are not of any special importance for posterity, should be archived to Wikitravel:Travellers' pub/Archives and removed from here. If you are not sure where to put a discussion, leave it alone—it's better to spend your efforts on those that you do know where to place.


Need help[edit]

Hi there I am comfusing about to leave some information on wikitravel. I want to put it in Sangkhlaburi travel guide page. (external links removed) —The preceding comment was added by Muddy (talkcontribs)

Hi, thanks for your question. On wikitravel we don´t add links to secondary sources and to general tour booking sites, so your links would not be allowed. If you are knowledgeable about Sangkhlaburi please share your knowledge in the article (original content). If any further questions, please let us know. We are looking forward to your edits. Thanks!

Sea Beach Rampueng[edit]

Hi! I have just added this page to Wikitravel, but there is nowhere in it where I can add hotels. Also the country up top did not appear. Did I screw up something? Please make this possible.

Also, this place, which is quite an increasingly popular destination for Farangs wanting to escape the bargirl scene of Pattaya, is known by several names

1) Sea Beach Rampueng

2) Mae Ram Pueng Beach

3) Mae Rampueng Beach

4) Had Mae Rampueng

5) Sea Beach Rampueng

Can you please make it redirectable from just any enquiry containing "Rampueng" please? —The preceding comment was added by Avemario (talkcontribs)

Hello Avemario, thanks for your message and the creation of the Sea Beach Rampueng article. As you created a region article, there is no sleep section, as accommodation listings would need to be mentioned in the respective location articles. Which city does the beach belong to? Are there actually shops, hotels and other things to see here or is it just a beach? I believe it is close by Rayong and Ban Phe, where the beach is also mentioned already, so I´m not sure if this beach should have its own article. I don´t know the region, so please advise so we can decide what to do. Thanks again for your great work! Adzas (talk) 18:47, 30 August 2014 (EDT)

OK, I see the problem. It is really a "town" in its own right. It is the same as Ban Phe is to Rayong City. There are numerous hotels and shops here. So what is the best option? Delete it and I rewrite it as a town? —The preceding comment was added by Avemario (talkcontribs)

Hi, no need to delete the article, I will change the template to a small city template so you can add your information ok? Thanks again! Adzas (talk) 06:30, 31 August 2014 (EDT)

Wikitravel statistics page? To check page views etc.?[edit]

Hi, I'm new. I was looking for a feature that shows individual page views / counts for single Wikitravel guides, sorted by dates or time spans. Something like this or this for Wikimedia projects. Any idea? All I could find is this static page. Thank you and all the best, Oibalos (talk) 13:07, 2 September 2014 (EDT)

Hello and welcome to Wikitravel! I don't think we have anything like that set up on here. Interesting, are those stats native to those wikimedia projects or are they third -party data? Best, IBcaldera (talk) 13:42, 3 September 2014 (EDT)

Addresses with or without city?[edit]

The address format specified in Wikitravel:Accommodation listings states Don't repeat the city name unless the "city" is different, other listings guidelines have very similar rules. However, this was not enforced for a long time and there are now many articles not following this format, showing city names (and ZIP codes) in their listings just as you would in postal addresses. (Regarding the ZIP codes, very few or possibly none of the city articles mention them.) The big question therefore is: what are we gonna do with that? STENSOFT (talk) 21:53, 2 September 2014 (EDT)

Hello there! Well, my opinion is that we should adhere to the guidelines and avoid useless repetitions (and ZIP codes, I'm not sure they can be useful here on Wikitravel). What do you think? Regards, GiulioC (talk) 04:00, 3 September 2014 (EDT)
Yesterday I undid a change by STENSOFT for this very reason. Apologies! I agree, from now on we should go with the guidelines(just as you both said) and correct all other listings as we come across them. I don't think there's a feature to change all existing listings at once and there are many, many listings with city and zip. Any other ideas?

Korat[edit]

Hi - I updated the Korat hotel here and it somehow entangled itself with the Splurge hotel section.

Also, On updating Mahasarakham, I tried to put in the correct way to pronounce it, and it did something funny.

Please check and advise. Regards Avemario

Hi Avemario, thank you for adding valuable information. The hotel entangled with the following section because its entry was missing “>” after “checkout”. I have fixed that. Regarding Mahasarakham, you have also added link to an example media file, I have removed it. STENSOFT (talk) 07:23, 6 September 2014 (EDT)

Lat Krabang.

I note that the closest district to the Bangkok airport, Suvarnabhumi, is Ramkamhaeng. This is about halfway to central BKK! There are many hotels and cheap eats in the Lat Krabang area close to the airport, and all of the hotels there have transfer service to and from the airport. Personally, I know the area backwards and there are many hotels, and Westerners who come here for an overnight/short time rest before their next flight, as well as people like myself who like the budget hotels and the easy access to the Airport Link station. Perhaps this is a district in BKK City worth adding now that Suvarnabhumi is the main international airport. It wasn't the main airport when I first went to Thailand 8 years ago so maybe we need to update. Please advise and I will oblige as needed.
