Talk:Santiago de Chile
I removed the external links and put it in the text where it is most useful. It was al link to Mapcity, I used it all the time in Santiago and it is extremely useful to find addresses in Santiago. I understand the external links policy but this deserves some flexibility, I put it for others to use, not for shameless promotion.
If anyone has a picture of La Moneda, it would be great to get it in the article. I can upload it if necessary, just send it my way. -- Peraltita 12:35, 12 November 2006 (EST)
Shall we mention that you have to go downtown to the post office to mail a postcare, as there are no mailboxes anyhere else in town? That was a surprise to me. --Beenthere 02:14, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
I've been taking a look at this article for the past week or so trying to see what I could do to help on the collaboration of the month front. One of the things that struck me was how unhelpful I found the districts - no borders (which helps both contributors and travellers) and very little content. After giving it some thought, I've removed the districts section from the article for three reasons:
I have no doubt that Santiago is big enough to have districts, but I think we should first focus on getting more content into the main article. Once that is done, hopefully someone who is familiar with the city can step in and lend their expertise to shaping some comprehensive districts.
For reference, the old districts are below. I haven't deleted these articles, so when the time comes they can be reused, merged or redirected as required. I tried to copy any info in these pages into the main Santiago article so users can continue to find and use it. Shaund 02:18, 11 January 2009 (EST)
I can't help thinking the drink section would benefit from being split up into sub-sections such as Providencia and Bella Vista. Any objections?--zorn 01:06, 2 February 2010 (EST)
I just added an entry for Bar Liguria after going there twice during my trip. There was an older entry for presumably the same bar (the address was a few digits off, and I have a receipt in front of me as I write this so I'm fairly sure mine is correct) which seemed completely inconsistent with what I saw there. It didn't seem like a matter of opinion, I just didn't recognise the place from the older description, so I decided I'd plunge forward :-) and delete it. This note is here in case I upset anyone, I don't claim to know the city well, I am just assuming the old entry was wrong or out of date and I do have a limited but real amount of experience. --zorn 01:06, 2 February 2010 (EST)
