From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

This article was the Collaboration of the week between 1 August 2006 and 7 August 2006.


Sweden is spelled incorrectly at the map.

Removed danish link[edit]

from the albani listing in the drink section: [1] (page in Danish) -- Tim 16:31, 31 July 2006 (EDT)


I am an Irish student who is travelling to Odense to study in SDU from the 30th of August. During my stay I will fully update this article & improve the quality of English in use here. Regards, -Chris

Updated[edit]

I updated the listing tags and improved some information using the city's municipal website, and the tourism website, provided at the beginning of the guide. See User:Sapphire/Sandbox/Odense. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 03:47, 17 August 2006 (EDT)

Complete Overhaul of the Page.[edit]

I'm the Irish student, who left a comment above. I've been living & studying here for almost 8 months now, so I have finally decided to put everything that I've learned together & fix up this page.

Today I've edited the following...

Get in Eat (Budget Section)

Over the next few days I'll keep on working to improve the page..! Later :)

Photos Removed.[edit]

I have removed the two photos on the page. They were too large & need to be resized. Once I finish editing the text I will replace them with many more newer pictures. --Disonyxiated 21:20, 2 June 2007 (EDT)

See Wikitravel:How to add an image for details of how to resize images within the article. - Todd VerBeek 23:55, 2 June 2007 (EDT)
I put them back. Replace them when you have something better. --elgaard 16:50, 4 June 2007 (EDT)

Okay, thanks ;) --Disonyxiated 17:17, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

Finished[edit]

Okay well I've finished my edits, let me know what you think. ;) Disonyxiated 18:58, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

Looks pretty good. Thanks for all the work. But of course no article is every "finished". :) - Todd VerBeek 13:27, 7 June 2007 (EDT)
Looks Good. A few pieces are not specific to Odense and should be in the Denmark artickle. Emergency numbers, Currency should not be in all city articles. --elgaard 18:38, 11 June 2007 (EDT)

I agree to an extent. The currency part I feel should be left. For example yesterday I met 2 US tourists on the train from Hamburg to Odense for a day-trip & they didn't realise that Denmark wasn't in the Eurozone. As for the emergency numbers, I've replaced that with the Odense police number instead. --Disonyxiated 19:24, 12 June 2007 (EDT)

Excactly. They did not think that there was a specieal Odense currency. They should look in the Denmark article for currency info. Otherwise we will repeat the same currency info 500 times for all danish locations. --elgaard 10:07, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

Fixing the Page.[edit]

There's been a number of edits to the page which has lowered its quality considerably. For starters someone has copied a few thousand words directly from the 'visitodense' website & posted them directly into the wrong section of the page. This has been removed. Other than that I'm just going to read through & sort out any grammatical errors. --Disonyxiated 06:56, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Glad you caught that - and thanks for tackling this! Gorilla Jones 11:05, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Capital??[edit]

I see that in the top line of the article it says that Odense is the capital of Fyn. Fyn does not have a capital, it's no country. So why does it say that?

The Funen article calls it the "regional capital". Jpatokal 12:02, 26 May 2009 (EDT)
