Tubing[edit]

Hello and welcome! You can sign messages in the travellers' pub or on talk pages by appending four tildes, ~~~~.

Should the "tubing" you speak of get an article among the Travel topics? I'd never heard of it. Pashley 10:46, 14 September 2006 (EDT)

Noticed that one of the things you can do in Yangshuo, China which I visited recently was to rent an inner tube and float down the Li River with it. Maybe "tubing" is becoming international? Pashley 09:25, 8 March 2007 (EST)

I just noticed it is also mentioned in Vang Vieng. Pashley 08:03, 13 December 2008 (EST)

Texas cities[edit]

Hey there... since you know Texas well, do you wanna reduce the cities list down to 9, per policy? Austin, as the capital, should be listed first, then 8 more of the most notable (for travelers). :) – cacahuate talk 03:16, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

Sure thing, let me ponder on this a minute. Jordanmills 12:55, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

Spam[edit]

Check out Wikitravel:How to handle unwanted edits, and thanks for working so hard on this problem! -- Colin 09:29, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

Haha, read it while you were posting this. I added a ban nomination. Thanks, Jordanmills 09:34, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

Austin Map[edit]

Austin was COTW and I try to do a map for every COTW if I have time. I'll see if I can do a larger area one for Austin later. --NJR_ZA 03:38, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

Houston[edit]

Howdy fellow Texan. Two or three weeks ago, I did some work on the Houston area articles, districtifying the city and consolidating a few of the communities under district umbrella articles. Somehow I didn't notice you were the docent until just now, but anyhow you haven't posted since Feb. 5. I hope you'll give me some feedback when you get time. Thanks.. Texugo 04:41, 24 March 2008 (EDT)

Yep, I've been busy. Looks like good stuff. I'll be sure to take a look through it. Thanks, Jordanmills 18:49, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
I realize the Houston districtification is still a mess, but I just wanted to make this comment: When I started looking at this area, it seemed like several different communities' article claim to be the location of NASA, and I think we need to choose just one, don't you? Texugo 00:15, 5 April 2008 (EDT)
No. The JSC exists in several jurisdictions: Webster, Nassau Bay, Seabrook, Clear Lake City, and Pasadena. All have a claim. Jordanmills 11:01, 7 April 2008 (EDT)

Reverts[edit]

Um, OK, look. This is NOT the way to deal with this. I have spent a GREAT deal of time trying to come up with a way to subdivide this region, and I offered up a very lengthy explanation of the process on the Talk:Texas page. Why do you feel the need to revert all my hard work without suggesting something better or at least discussing?? I am offended honestly, and when I have time tomorrow it's all going back the way I had it. Texugo 12:05, 7 April 2008 (EDT)

Okay, you seriously need to stop reverting my region edits, especially if you're not going to discuss it. Jordanmills 12:09, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
Excuse me?? I gave everyone a lengthy explanation of my breakdown of sub-regions here. I spent 3 or 4 weeks working on this, and the 5 macro-regions of Texas really need to be broken down because each is like the size of Pennsylvania and there are far too many towns to be covered in one region article. Before you go eliminating my subdivisions and going back to what we had before, it is you that need to discuss and suggest something better. Texugo 12:17, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
I explained my scheme thoroughly yesterday on the Talk:Texas page. And I'm sorry but you know, I grew up on the High Plains. Everyone there knows what it is. Businesses are named after it, 806 area code phone book says it, news agencies use the phrase regularly. Llano Estacado area, same thing. Edwards Plateau, Permian Basin too. Fact one is that the five main areas need to be divided up somehow. If you don't like how I've done it so far, fine, suggest something better. But don't send the whole mess back to the drawing board without suggesting a better way.Texugo 12:34, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
