Hello Burmesedays! Welcome to Wikitravel Shared. Please take a second to look at our copyleft and image policy, but feel free to plunge forward and add some images. If you need help, check out the help desk or post a message in the travellers' pub.

I just saw that you hadn't yet been welcomed ;)

A lot of the imagecredit templates you have filled out, particularly for flickr images, appear to be broken (example). I fixed one up, so it might be helpful to look at that edit [1] to get a better idea of how the flickr imagecredit should be filled out.

Also, you can access higher resolution images on flickr by clicking the "all sizes" magnifying glass icon directly above the image. That way, we can have the image here in all its proper glory. --Peter Talk 15:00, 26 October 2009 (EDT)

A very belated welcome but appreciated nonetheless:) Yeah sorry about the laziness with the flickr images especially... I just c&p'd the flickr html attribtion tag for each. I will work through them and put all that right.
Also, due to the many formatting changes to my map files after taking advice, there are a lot of old versions uploaded which are pretty much superfluous. You or another admin might want to delete some of these for the sake of tidiness and server space. This is relevant to any file Bali-Map*.svg and .png Cheers. --Burmesedays 05:29, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
I have started re-marking up all images as requested.... tedious job, but my own fault for being lazy in the first instance. --Burmesedays 01:20, 1 November 2009 (EDT)
done! PHEW. --Burmesedays 03:12, 1 November 2009 (EST)

Map tags[edit]

The standard practice is to use {{map|region X}} on the image page, and {{map|region Y|region X}} on the map category page. So a map of Edinburgh gets markup like this [2], while category:Maps of Edinburgh gets this [3]. It looks like you are forcing the maps to appear both at category:maps_of_city and at category:Maps of Bali, and while I haven't seen that done elsewhere, it might be useful nonetheless—I'll leave it to your capable hands. --Peter Talk 23:02, 31 October 2009 (EDT)

Nusa Lembongan-Map[edit]

this sir, is an awesome map! love how you've done the mangroves. One suggestion to make it awsome'er would be to label those divers if they represent dive sites - if you can get away with that without making it too busy. sertmann 17:16, 18 November 2009 (EST)

Beijing maps[edit]

Thanks for your comments on my maps, very helpful and already on their way to be implemented, --ClausHansen 00:30, 19 March 2010 (EDT)

Oman map SVG[edit]

I haven't been able find this—have you uploaded it? --Peter Talk 21:43, 22 March 2010 (EDT)

It seems not :). I have now though. --Burmesedays 00:23, 23 March 2010 (EDT)

Map categories[edit]

I just wanted to make sure you are familiar with the proper syntax for the map template (which is confusing). On file pages, use {{map|destination}}. On map category pages, use {{map|parent region|destination}}. To hopefully make that clearer, see changes [4] and [5] for examples ;) --Peter Talk 21:36, 5 May 2010 (EDT)

I absolutely wasn't, but I am now :) Thanks Peter.--Burmesedays 21:55, 5 May 2010 (EDT)
