The Travellers' pub—your watering hole on Wikitravel

The Travellers' pub is where Wikitravellers of all languages get to together to talk about Wikitravel, and where you can ask for help if you're confused, lost, afraid, tired or annoyed by Wikitravel. Please check the FAQ and Help page before asking a question, though, since that may save your time and others'.

If you have question about travel, not the website, try the Travellers' pubs in your language edition of Wikitravel.

If you are having a problem that you think has to do with the Mediawiki software, please post that on the technical requests page instead.

Please add new questions at the bottom of the page and sign your post by appending four tildes (~~~~) to it, but otherwise plunge forward!


There are archives available for this page. Please do not edit the archives - instead, start a new thread.


line 88 states "During the English occupation, the grain silos were modified into stores for water." The British were invited to the island of Malta to oust the French.

It can be found within Wikipedia 'Malta Protectorate' that: "In June 1802, 104 representatives from the Maltese towns and villages signed a declaration entitled La Dichiarazione dei Diritti degli abitanti delle Isole di Malta e Gozo (The Declaration of Rights of the inhabitants of the Islands of Malta and Gozo) by which they proclaimed George III to be their king, and that he had no right to surrender Malta to another power. By the Declaration they also proclaimed that Malta should be self-governing while under British protection"

Gozo was certainly not therefore ever under "English occupation" and it is my understanding that as recently as 1956 77% of a vote wanted Malta & Gozo to become part of the United Kingdom.

Editing You can freely edit the article on Malta. If something is incorrect, please delete or revise it. Koavf (talk) 13:29, 29 August 2014 (EDT)


In updating Nakhon Ratchasima I was working on the Korat Hotel in the midrange hotels section. Going into the update section everything looks normal, but looking at the page after logout, it has become entangled with the splurge section and the hotel from there.

Also, I was updating Mahasarakham and was inserting how to pronounce the place. It took the edit away from being reedited and made a mess of the section.

Apologies................. Please fix. Avemario.

Page protection and vandalism on RU WT[edit]

Some pages on the RU Wikitravel need to be protected from abusive political vandalism and to prevent revision wars. I think Wiki is not a place for politics, and the information needs to be objective and clear and not need to meet anyone's point of view on the situation in the world. These pages include Украина‎, Россия, Русь, Восточная Европа‎, Киев and some others. Dia (talk) 09:42, 26 September 2014 (EDT)

Admins Have you spoken with any of the admins on that edition? I am one of them but I don't know Russian, so it would be difficult for me to mediate. If you need me, let me know. Koavf (talk) 12:05, 26 September 2014 (EDT)
I was trying to reverse the vandal's changes a couple of times but it just result in an auto-ban. I see by the recent changes that these vandals are operating for some time now. I wrote to some of the admins but don't get any response. The changes to some of the pages are very offensive, so I think they need to be fixed asap. Dia (talk) 13:00, 26 September 2014 (EDT)
Protection It looks like the only Russian-speaking admin is Olga Z. Have you spoken with her? Koavf (talk) 13:29, 26 September 2014 (EDT)
It seems that all of admins abandoned RU edition :( Dia (talk) 15:47, 26 September 2014 (EDT)
I'm here I'll help. I'm just letting you know that I don't have proficiency in your language. It will be difficult but I'm willing to do it. Koavf (talk) 01:56, 27 September 2014 (EDT)
Ok. I think to start with the following pages' last revisions need to be reverted and protected from editing. At least temporarily. You can try to just revert, but you can look at the recent changes there that I tried many times. The vandals are relentless. Русь, Россия, Восточная Европа, Северо-запад России, Киев, Эстония, Украина, also this template needs to be fixed Шаблон:В Dia (talk) 05:47, 27 September 2014 (EDT)

Hi guys, and thank you for your effort! In the meantime, I'll report that to Wikitravel HQ. Hopefully they'll have somebody competent! PierrB (talk) 01:16, 28 September 2014 (EDT)
