26 December 2006 - 1 January 2007[edit]

Why[edit]

Needs the following:

  • Understand section.
  • Get around section
  • Sights
  • "Do" activities
  • Research phone numbers and addresses for listings.
  • Overall the article needs more information and improve what information we do have. -- Sapphire 13:36, 15 November 2006 (EST)

12 December 2006 - 18 December 2006[edit]

Why[edit]

The main article has some good info in it but could be expanded, and most of the subarticles need serious help or even to be created in the first place. More info for U.S. travelers would be good too, such as how to handle your finances being that you can't use credit cards or atm's. Maybe even a separate article US travelers in Cuba detailing everything from arriving in Cancun and buying a ticket to Havana to avoiding places like Guantanamo and if in trouble, how long to hold out before breaking down and contacting the U.S. interests office, etc. I think there's a ton of possibilities for Cuba and all its subarticles. Trinidad, Santiago, all of these have little to no info.

    • http://www.seat61.com/Cuba.htm is a good website that could provide info for getting around by train.
    • the main Cuba map could be updated with a few more popular destinations like Trinidad and Baracoa, and maybe even show the train line? Cacahuate 04:13, 7 November 2006 (EST)

Why[edit]

Good amount of information in the article. Could do with a bit of MoS editing, more pics, map. Big problems with districts though - 16 are listed on main page, but most dont warrant articles and need to be integrated together into a smaller number of good quality district articles. In my opinion not too far off being a very good guide article, maybe even a star if all above issues are addressed. Tsandell 07:11, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

Why[edit]

We're long overdue to have an Indian city as a DotM, and this one isn't too far from being ready. MoS work and grammar/spelling checks are needed throughout. Many attractions need hours/fees/contact info, etc. And as usual, it needs a map. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 14:22, 18 June 2006 (EDT)

  • Can somebody do a map while we're at it? Some good editing on this one could promote it to DOTM-worthy very quickly, if a map can be added. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 21:26, 14 September 2006 (EDT)

5 September 2006 - 11 September 2006[edit]

Why[edit]

A city this important, and fascinating, should have a far better article. Needs to be broken into districts, which then should be populated; lots of expansion in "See" and "Do" is possible; "Stay safe" and "Cope" sections need addition/completion; and a good map would be useful. The current article is barely Usable; we can do better. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 16:39, 11 June 2006 (EDT)

Why[edit]

It'd be nice to establish the idea of doing Regions, like this one, as viable CotW candidates. This one needs photos (shouldn't be hard to find) and maps, as well as contact info for many of the things mentioned. "Respect" could use some elaboration. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 11:22, 4 June 2006 (EDT) - just a note to add to above comments - there are currently no phone lines in the Everest region, so there are no contact numbers/info.

I agree with the comments regarding contact info. There are no phone numbers or mailing addresses in the Everest region. Furthermore, I'm not sure what kind of elaboration is required for 'respect'. If Bill can leave me message on my discussion page to explain, I could probably add the info immediately. However, I do agree that the quality of the article would be greatly enhanced with the addition of photographs and maps - though don't know if that requirement alone would qualify it as 'collaboration of the week' canditate.

Usable guide for Danish city, birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson. Odense is also the site of Wikisym 2006, the ACM's annual wiki conference, from 21-23 Aug. A guide or star article would definitely be useful for Wiki people at that conference. Some work needed: expanded Understand section, reformat the listings in See, more hotels in Sleep and better listings, more restaurants in Eat and better listings, some day trips in Get out. --Evan 14:33, 9 July 2006 (EDT)

Why[edit]

Cambridge is the site of the upcoming Wikimania 2006 Wiki conference. The Cambridge article is uneven and needs a good combing through. A guide or star article would help highlight Wikitravel for Wikimania participants. Five points of improvement: a few paragraphs of overview and history in Understand; edit down the public transportation section of Get Around; long-form attraction listings for Harvard and MIT; a map (!); Expand Sleep listings. --Evan 14:47, 9 July 2006 (EDT)

Cuzco is an exciting place that could easily become DotM and is from a region that has had few highlighted articles. There is already a lot of info in it but it needs serious editing to comply with the Manual of Style: listings are missing addresses and contact info, there are things placed in the wrong sections and there are some 1st person pronouns. It would benefit from a decent history section, needs a good map and maybe one or two pictures taken from less than 1 mile afar. Ricardo (Rmx) 19:07, 26 April 2006 (EDT)

Munich

Why[edit]

  • A few good maps for the various districts
  • Spelling and grammar
  • The following districts need more information and need to be formatted correctly.
  • Expand all "Sleep sections"
  • Expand "Eat," "Do," "Buy" sections.
  • Photos of these attractions and events are needed or would at the very least be appreciated:

Hofbaeuhaus, Olympic Park, Residenz palace, Frauenkirche, Hirschgarten, Viktualienmarkt,Englischer Garten, Oktoberfest, Christkindlmarkt (Christmas markets on Marienplatz), the Glockenspiel, National theather, Deutsches Museum, Loewenbraeu (brewery), Augustiner brewery (This would be cool, because despite Hofbraeu being the known beer Augustiner is the prefered beer of the locals), Schloss Nymphenburg gardens.

The article is currently rated as a "guide." This article needs a lot of work before June, July, and August to allow travellers the opportunity to plan for Oktoberfest. I've been trying to do as much as possible, but I'm usually distracted by Rail travel in North America, Rail travel in Europe, or and I tend to forget about this article. Please help.
