Uploading[edit]

Hey, since you've been doing a lot of uploading I wanted to ask you a favor. Before you add any information about an image in the "Summary" boxes would you please click in the Summary box, then scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click on the "Image Credit" template. This will automagically import the template into the Summary box. To use the template simply fill out all of the values. When you use the "Location=" value simply type in the the name of the place the image was taken, don't link to the page. Jani edited the template which reads the input and automagically turns what you type into a link and categorizes the image. Thanks. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 06:40, 11 January 2007 (EST)

OK, will do NJR ZA 06:01, 13 January 2007 (EST)

Maps[edit]

Hello!

Thank you for your great maps! I started to include them in the German branch of Wikitravel. A user said that there is an error in Image:Map-South Africa-Parks01.png, the "De Hoop" is in the wrong place, it should be somewhere between 15 and 16. Could this be true? --Flip666 11:12, 5 February 2007 (EST)

Your user is quite correct. De Hoop is definitely not where it belongs. I'll fix and upload a new version. -- NJR ZA 16:14, 5 February 2007 (EST)
Great! Thanks, I just saw your correction... --Flip666 16:47, 5 February 2007 (EST)
OK, it's fixed. I have re-uploaded to wikitravel shared and it seem like it is updated on en correctly. Just check it on de and let me know if all is fine. Sometimes it gives me problems when I re-upload an image. -- NJR ZA 16:54, 5 February 2007 (EST)
Another quick note. If you want to give me German translations for Indian Ocean, South Atlantic, Other and any other English names and words used on the map then I can create a German version for you. -- NJR ZA 17:07, 5 February 2007 (EST)

Here are some translations:

South Atlantic 
Südatlantik
Indian Ocean 
Indischer Ozean
South Africa 
Südafrika
Capetown 
Kapstadt
Free State 
Freistaat
Northern Cape 
Nordkap
Eastern Cape 
Ostkap
Western Cape 
Westkap
North West 
Nordwest

-- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 17:19, 5 February 2007 (EST)


Thanks Sapphire, that's a good start. I also took the other country names from de:Südafrika (Region). Let me know if these are good. If there are errors, let me know, it's quick and easy to make changes.

I've added a couple and will add some more over time. They will all be available here: Category:South Africa

-- NJR ZA 17:57, 5 February 2007 (EST)

The country names are good! Only one corretion: In the Kruger Map could you replace "Eingängen" and use "Eingänge"? In the Map of the SA National Parks "andere" (written with lower case "a" and without the "s") would sound a bit better. Thanks! --Flip666 05:16, 6 February 2007 (EST)
Done. I see you are also using Image:Map-South_Africa-Western_Cape-Cape_Peninsula.png. If you have some time to give me translations for it, I'll create a (de) versions for it as well. I did on year of German at school many years ago, but can't even imagine how you would translate See&Do -- NJR ZA 12:41, 6 February 2007 (EST)
See&Do
Sehenswürdigkeiten
Table Mountain
Tafelberg
Whale Watching
Walbeobachtung
Swim au natural
what does this mean? Swimming naked? Then it's "FKK-Strand"
Where two oceans meet
Wo sich zwei Ozeane treffen
Penguin colony
Pinguinkolonie
Silvermine
If it's not a name use "Silbermine"

Thanks! --Flip666 16:25, 6 February 2007 (EST)

Picture Kruger National Park[edit]

Hi, by the way, do you have a photo we could use as a replacement for the title picture of the en:Kruger National Park? Currently it is en:Image:Kruger monument at the Kruger Gate Kruger National Park.JPG. The authors asked to delete all their pictures from Wikitravel (yes, I know that they should have read the licence before uploading anything), but it is not very nice anyway. --Flip666 18:53, 6 February 2007 (EST)

Unfortunately I don't currently have one, last time I was in the park was before digital cameras existed. One of my co-workers is going there next month, I will ask that they take some photos specific for wikitravel. -- NJR ZA 00:10, 7 February 2007 (EST)

Hi[edit]

Since you're docent for South Africa, could you let me know the best way to fly over from India. Also, what what be the best time to visit SA? Thanks -- Upamanyu -- Write2me 08:41, 27 April 2007 (EDT)
