26 December - 1 January[edit]

  • Suzhou
    • One of China's top tourist destinations.
    • We have plenty of text but it could be better organised.
    • Much missing, phone numbers for hotels, etc.
    • Needs MoS work and some de-touting. Pashley 10:07, 17 December 2007 (EST)

19 December - 25 December[edit]

  • Bergen. The article has a lot of information, and is on its way to become a star. It represents an area (Northern Europe) of which only one destination has been the destination of the month (Helsinki, back in 2005). Bergen is regarded as "the gateway to the fjords", and thus very important for most tourists visiting Norway. It is also the south terminus for Hurtigruten, a popular voyage following the Norwegian coastline. Furthermore, Bergen is the center of music in Norway, the home or residence of artists and composers like Sondre Lerche, Röyksopp, Magnet, Kurt Nilsen, Datarock, Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren Band, Kings of Convenience, Edvard Grieg and Harald Sæverud. A Spanish translation is in progress. There is a list of things to do on the article discussion page. To sum up, the article needs:
    • A map (the city is well covered on Open Street Map, so those with the necessary technical knowledge should be able to help out without knowing the city)
    • A thorough spell check and language cleanup (native English speakers, help out!)
    • More listings under most sections (check out the discussion page for ideas - much information can be found through Google)
    • A bit reorganizing
    • More/different pictures (there is a lot to be found on Flickr)

  • Delhi - a lot of info and a lot of good photos, and... a map! I'd love to see this as a DotM sometime soon
    • Needs a bit of an MoS tidy up
    • Having said that about the map, we need to put the main attractions etc on it now

27 November - 4 December[edit]

    • Needs more detail in get in and get around.
    • Listings need contact details (phone numbers, addresses, websites)
    • Sleep listings need more info, in some cases there is none.
    • Get out doesn't link to Wikitravel guides... :S
    • More photos and a map required.

31 October - 6 November[edit]

  • Lankaran city - a great deal of information, nice history section, and a expansive transportation section but:
    • The page need. s a MoS clean up.
    • Hiking and more national park information need to be included from the surrounding area e.g. Isti Su, Hirkan National Park, etc
    • The get out section should have more ideas for possible options post-Lankaran (e.g. going to Iran, enjoying the hot springs in the south, sanatoriums, etc.)
    • The page would benefit from the expansion, revision, and creation of foreign language pages
    • More information on Lankaran and Talish culture should be included
    • Needs more photos
    • Lots of links but no good information
    • Fill out the Talish area in Azerbaijan!

  • Saint Petersburg (Russia) - huge tourist destination and the largest city in northeastern Europe by far, which is way too light on information, but easy to research --Peterfitzgerald Talk 23:14, 4 June 2007 (EDT)
    • Lots of MoS clean up
    • Lots of famous and less famous sights missing
    • Copy-edit as much of its content was written by non-native speakers
    • Do section is empty, but easy to research—the city has a world-class performing arts scene
    • As a city of 5 million, it might be a good idea to come up with a way to split the city into districts
    • Eat section needs a lot of work—there is a lot of good eating in this city
    • Understand section is very underdeveloped
    • It may be hard to acquire source material compatible with the copyleft, but a city map would be great; a hermitage map would be a big plus as well. If anyone could find suitable source material, I would be glad to do the map myself
    • Here is the official web city guide, with lots of info to mine

  • Vienna -- -- Tim (writeme!) 14:54, 1 July 2007 (EDT)
    • One of 8 host cities for Euro 2008 in June/July 2008 - need to get into tip top shape by then.
    • I've mooted the possibility of breaking this up into districts here, and that's going to take a lot of ground work so a CotW would help with the copying and pasting into any district articles.
    • The whole thing could do with being converted to listings.
    • Contact details are needed for a lot of attractions.
    • Some of the information on listings might need to be trimmed, there could be too much description on some. Conversely, some do listings need more info.
    • Could do with info for the Contact and Cope sections.
    • Vienna Metro map is in French, needs to be converted to English.
    • A map would be great, and maybe a few more photos?


38 edits by 4 authors, Guide to Usable. (Note:Original guide rating was debatable)

4 August - 10 August 2007[edit]

Why[edit]

- lots of info but:

    • The page needs a MoS clean up.
    • More hiking and historical sites need to be included from the surrounding area e.g. Marxal, Orta Zayzit, the Labyrinth etc.
    • The get out section should have more ideas for possible options post-Sheki
    • The page would benefit from the expansion, revision, and creation of the Japanese, and German pages.
    • The transportation guide needs to have updated prices
    • All of the marshrut routes are not listed
    • Needs more photos
    • Lots of links with no information -- Cupcakecommander 01:42, 10 May 2007 (EDT)
    • Combine with the Sheki page or expand the Kish page

8 July - 3 August 2007[edit]

Why[edit]

    • needs a little work to conform to the Manual of style
    • Research phone #'s, websites, etc for a lot of the listings
    • organize or rewrite "Understand" section into a more digestible amount of info
    • reduce the bloated Stay safe section - doesn't need to be so sub-divided
    • "See" section is blank - surely there are some attractions to see here? – cacahuate talk 13:38, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

18 July - 24 July 2007[edit]

Why[edit]

    • One of 8 host cities for Euro 2008 in June/July 2008 - need to get into tip top shape by then.
    • Need to convert to listings, which will fix the MoS problems on the guide.
    • There are 5 destinations in get out with no info about them. Need a sentence or two to explain why they would make good days out or places to move on to.
    • There are only two photos on the page, and the main one is pretty grainy... We need to get more and find a suitable replacement for the main one that is of higher quality.
    • There are a couple of listings without contact details/addresses, which need to be found and put into the guide.
    • A map would be useful.

11 July - 17 July 2007[edit]

Why[edit]

good but:

    • many sections need rewriting for more fluid prose.
    • some info needs to be moved into the main Morocco article
    • more photos would be nice - shouldn't be hard to find some that show the main square and the souqs – cacahuate talk 03:06, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
    • contact details needed for some of the listings in see. -- Tim (writeme!) 05:51, 8 July 2007 (EDT)

  • UNESCO World Heritage List - lots of red links - we should link to the nearest place where possible and be a bit more consistent on how we link. -- DanielC 16:52, 18 April 2007 (EDT)
In other words, determine for each listing if it qualifies for its own article as per Wikitravel:What is an article, and if not, then list it as '''Name of attraction''' in [[Name of nearest city]] – cacahuate talk 03:30, 21 May 2007 (EDT)

12 June - 25 June 2007[edit]

Why[edit]

good article with lots of info, but could use some tlc:

    • Districts need to be further hashed out - is this the best way to divide them? If the map is a good base to go on, then make the list and the district articles match it exactly.
    • MoS / template the listings, and then move to appropriate district articles.
    • Write brief overviews of what's to be found in the city for the sleep, eat and drink sections once listings are moved.
    • Needs a street map.
    • MoS / template the listings in the district articles – cacahuate talk 02:18, 2 April 2007 (EDT)

4 June 2007 - 10 June 2007[edit]

Why[edit]

An extremely popular tourist destination, but the article is lacking a lot. Five things I suggest:

    • Grammar and Manual of Style cleanup,
    • See listings should really be expanded,
    • District articles need a lot of work,
    • Eat/Sleep sections could use a lot of work,
    • More descriptions of vital things, like more on how to Get Around. There is also nothing in the Cope section. PerryPlanet 22:18, 13 February 2007 (EST)

-- Would be the first place in the Caucasus to be a CotW

    • Eat/drink/buy sections need more work.
    • The page needs a MoS clean up.
    • A great deal of the attractions are missing.
    • A new city map (like the ones in fountain square).
    • The page would benefit from the expansion and creation of the Japanese, English, and German pages.
    • Transportation guide
    • Needs more photos

2 April - 9 April 2007[edit]

Paris/4th arrondissement

Why[edit]

This article was declared a star before the current star nomination process was implemented, and when our standards for a star article were more relaxed... it's needs several things to get it up to par, including the following:

  • Get In is simply a list of subway stations
  • Get Around is sparse
  • Listings need to be templatized (drink and sleep sections are only ones left to do)
  • The last two sleep listings have no prices mentioned
  • The eat/drink sections need opening hours and meal prices, and all listings should have descriptions
  • The closest Metro station should be mentioned for every listing, in a city like Paris you can never be more than 400m away from a station.
  • Punctuation is a bit lousy at places.
  • Buy - should be expanded and descriptions, hours, etc for all listings
  • The "Do" section needs informative descriptions for the things listed

Let's get this article in shape so that we can renominate it for Star status, it's not that far off! – cacahuate talk 00:13, 31 March 2007 (EDT)

Sleep section needs to be organized into budget/mid-range/splurge... looks like the yellow pages at the moment.
All listings could be templatized
A lot of the attractions and listings in eat and drink need more contact info, descriptions
Do we need such a huge list of radio stations?

Why[edit]

In reasonable shape in most regards, but needs MoS work, entries for "Buy," and many more "Sleep" options. As with most articles, maps and illustrations (which shouldn't be too hard to find) are also needed.

Why[edit]

A lot of content, needs to be broken into districts. Someone who knows the town might need to oversee and organise this. Tim 08:31, 25 October 2006 (EDT)

    • Various listings need to be MoS'd. Certain listings need addresses/phone numbers/websites. Drink section needs list of good bars/pubs/clubs. Needs more pictures and a map. Eat section needs a description of "In Rome you can ask for" - what are you asking for?!! Needs more shop/market listings in Buy. See/Do needs sorting out and contact details. -- Tim 11:33, 17 January 2007 (EST)
    • Seems to have been broken into a number of districts, perhaps even too many? Can any of these be combined into groups that make sense to the traveler, or is each actually worthy of it's own article?
    • Listings could be templatized to better conform to the Manual of style.
    • A district map (if not a full city map!) would be useful in understanding how the city is broken down. Cacahuate 02:22, 19 January 2007 (EST)

Lots of info, but in desperate need of reorganizing and editing. WindHorse 06:57, 4 December 2006 (EST) Support for CoW. The info is excellent, and the article is v. informative. With a little editing, this can easily become a star.

    • The Do section can be edited. Not enough info.
    • The Get Around section needs more info on Hiring cars, motorbikes and cycles.
    • In desperate need of good pics. Map also req.
    • Cope sec required
    • Listings req tel nos, price, opening hours etc.

Besides, Pune is a great city, with a laid-back yet vibrant atmosphere. The ideal place to relax after touring the big metros. History, atmosphere, art, culture, it's all there . Virtual Pune and Pune Diary are both good sources of info. Pune City is the official website. Upamanyuwikitravel 09:17, 11 December 2006 (EST)
