Poreč[edit]

Hello, just courius why have you deleted my post on Poreč sleeping about two villas near my location? —The preceding comment was added by KMance (talkcontribs)

If you're talking about this it's because I suspect touting from a rental agency. GiulioC (talk) 10:15, 6 January 2015 (EST)
Yes, that one. how can I show you that that is not touting? Because i have put them there and for sure Im not some agency :). I see Valamar listings there that are biggest rental agency in Istria...—The preceding comment was added by KMance (talkcontribs)
I'll have a deeper look on this. In the meantime you can take a look at our rental page to see how we usually deal with such listings (another thing is that the villas you added don't look like they're actually in Poreč). You can always use the article's talkpage and start a discussion and see if we can reach a consensus. Regards, GiulioC (talk) 06:06, 7 January 2015 (EST)

I have seen that nothing have changed, so i would like start discussion how can Valamar have its listings, but others can not on Poreč sleeping. Can you please give me the link where can I start discussion. Thanks —The preceding comment was added by KMance (talkcontribs)

Hello, you can follow this link and you will start the Poreč talkpage. GiulioC (talk) 11:11, 28 January 2015 (EST)

Hello, thank you very much on link, so I have now started discussion thread on Poreč KMance (talk) 06:13, 3 February 2015 (EST)

At Bagan Hostel[edit]

Hi,

I see you have removed the addition I made to Bagan today because you think that there are too many hotel listings on the page, but our hostel is the only one in the Bagan region and so it is not like just another business. Knowing that a hostel is available is likely to increase the number of budget travellers coming to the region and save them a lot of money if they were going to come anyway! We have only just opened and would really appreciate being able to put ourselves on the page to show that there are cheap options in the town.

Thanks, Tom At Bagan Hostel —The preceding comment was added by Tomrc86 (talkcontribs)

Hi Tom, sorry I deleted your edit. I just re-checked it and put it back as it really seems valuable. My mistake, sorry again. Feel free to add information to Bagan page! GiulioC (talk) 05:15, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Gili Trawangan hotel listings help[edit]

Hi,

I was wondering if you'd like to help me do a quick clean up of the hotel listings for Gili Trawangan. Budget has way too many listings IMO, mid range possibly also. Splurge has one or two that should be in mid-range (Dream Villa's). I'd appreciate your input in getting the quality of the article back to the days before most admins migrated to wikivoy! Cheers - Natataek (talk) 09:47, 16 February 2015 (EST)

Hello! I agree with you, Gili Trawangan needs to be cleaned up a little bit. I'd focus on the Budget section and keep only those listings that have not only a phone number but also email and website since these are more likely to be used by a traveller from another country. GiulioC (talk) 03:32, 17 February 2015 (EST)
Thanks for the tips! I have slimmed down each section to 6 listings, based on the fact that budget and mid range each contained only 6 with urls and email addresses (for budget i allowed url only as a condition as only a couple had included email). I removed dream village from splurge as it doesn't qualify in terms of price range and facilities and added a couple that do. Natataek (talk) 08:34, 17 February 2015 (EST)
The page now looks definitely better! Thank you! GiulioC (talk) 08:38, 17 February 2015 (EST)

Beijing[edit]

You previously deleted hours of work on the Beijing article, returning it to an overloaded and inaccurate state. The speedy deletion was against policy, because my work was cancelled without discussion. You've asked for time to think, but now over a week has passed and it's time to provide further details about the issues you want to raise, using your experience of Beijing. Note both the policy and the current consensus is for going ahead and improving the article. Lawe (talk) 16:28, 21 February 2015 (EST)

You're doing a great job and the Beijing article definitely needs to be improved. But I'm waiting for feedback from our Admin in China, he surely has a better knowledge of the city than me and he may suggest something useful. GiulioC (talk) 11:26, 22 February 2015 (EST)

Nicaragua[edit]

You deleted the post on Mombacho Lodge in the "Do" section. If it is because it contained reference to commercial establishment, you need to check on the rest of that section. I was in fact surprised that this section contains so many direct promotions.....some not just listings, but blatantly commercial ad with testimonials, etc. (Surf Lodge and San Christobal Eco tours as just two examples). After reading them I put up Mombacho Lodge. So, what gives? it is a LOT less commercial than the others.....just a short blurb not 200 words.

Before I start editing out all the commercial posts on this site in places where they do not belong, let me know what you are doing and why.

Mombacho Lodge is in the National Reserve area, works with the Reserve, and being the only place to stay there is a real asset to the park.—The preceding comment was added by Atz (talkcontribs)

You already inserted your listing (twice) in the Volcan Mombacho page. Inserting listings on multiple pages is considered touting. GiulioC (talk) 03:42, 23 February 2015 (EST)
