Ex links[edit]

Sort of... most of the links in buy eat and sleep are all to pages on the official berneray website, not actual sites of the businesses... is that ok? Cacahuate 10:58, 3 December 2006 (EST)

A site doesn't necessarily have to be "www.myrestaurant.com" to be a primary link - for example, most businesses in the Falkland Islands have a URL that is a sub-page of http://tourism.org.fk/, and the businesses use that URL as their official web site. I don't know Berneray at all, so I'm not sure if that's the case here, but if it is then the links are fine. -- Ryan 11:02, 3 December 2006 (EST)
Doh, looks like tourism.org.fk has recently been changed... another example might be the concessions in Yosemite National Park, which are all controlled by a single agency and mostly have official sites that are pages within the concessionaire's site. -- Ryan 11:07, 3 December 2006 (EST)
Works for me! Cacahuate 11:12, 3 December 2006 (EST)
Yeah, for most of the accommodations in Berneray, the community's web site is either their official online presence, or as "primary" a source as there is online. - Todd VerBeek 17:41, 4 December 2006 (EST)
I live on Berneray, maintain the "official" Berneray website, and wrote the original entry on this wiki, which am currently updating. Can confirm that only 2 of the businesses on Berneray have their own website. That's what the official website for the island was set up, so all the others would have some kind of web "presence" - Jkirriemuir 10 December 2006

Other services[edit]

Would be nice if the Other Services could be included in a Cope Sec. And maybe a few Scottish phrases could be included in Talk, since there is no phrasebook on wikitravel for the Gaelic language. Upamanyuwikitravel 11:21, 19 December 2006 (EST)

Changed "other services" to "cope"... surprised nobody noticed that sooner! But if someone decides to add phrases they should just do it in the Gaelic phrasebook page since it applies to more than Berneray. Cacahuate 11:42, 19 December 2006 (EST)
I think a little more could be included in a Cope Section. After all, Berneray is an off-the-beaten-path destination and facilities like ATMs, cinema halls etc are not so easily available. Upamanyuwikitravel 06:24, 13 January 2007 (EST)

Star -> guide[edit]

I bumped this back down from "star" to "guide". The "See" and "Do" sections don't match our Wikitravel:Manual of style for attraction listings.

I realize that Berneray is so small that it's going to be an exception to some if not all of the rules of the MoS. That means it should take longer to become a star -- we need to figure out if these exceptions meet our style guidelines. --Evan 11:06, 20 December 2006 (EST)

As stated on Wikitravel talk:Star nominations, I object violently to this rollback. A clear consensus was reached on this, and Evan, the fact that you individually do not share in that consensus does not refute its existence. Furthermore, this is exactly the kind of place that fits into the "exception that proves the rule" heading explicitly laid out in Wikitravel:Star nominations. Please explain yourself more fully, as I am about to revert this. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 11:38, 20 December 2006 (EST)

Camping[edit]

Any idea why the "camping" section keeps getting deleted? --Evan 09:21, 5 April 2007 (EDT)

Because somebody got bitten by a mosquito there and is angry? Really though, I've restored it a couple times too, please don't delete it unless you've come here to tell us why... or we'll just keep re-adding it. That info was added by a Berneray resident, so we trust what he says... – cacahuate talk 20:47, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
