So, inspired by events in south-east and south Asia, I just kicked off the [[Travel news]] page(s), linking directly from the Main Page. I realise that this is quite an audacious move, given the lack of discussion, but I hope everyone will bear with me and get behind this.... I have created only one article so far, with the beginning of a headline and date(s) structure, but the formatting and organisation of the News page(s) are, of course, completely open to discussion and experiment..... Let's make it happen![[User:Pjamescowie|Pjamescowie]] 15:13, 28 Dec 2004 (EST)

:At first glance I thought this would be a pretty good idea, but as I thought more about it, I liked it less aspend'' the travel news section of the [[Main Page]] for a while, until somebody really really wants it back.  It was a great idea, but sadly we just don't seem to have the resources to keep it current.  As it is most of the stuff we're publishing as travel news is widely available from other sources.  What do you all think? -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 04:02, 14 Aug 2005 (EDT)

: Mm. I'd like to see more emphasis on travel news that ''don't'' make the headlines: new airports and airlines, major festivals and events starting or ending, that sort of thing.  This is still useful and not all that time-critical (eg. if there's a new airport open, it'll probably stay open).

:: Yes!  That would be terrific!  I'm afraid though that it looks like we don't have enough up-to-the-minute info gatherers to keep the news up-to-date at least for now.  Again, I still think it's a '''great''' idea but it just doesn't seem to be working out for now. -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 01:22, 15 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Travel news

How about adding a logbook-style "Travel news" section to the Main Page? The tsunamis that just flattened large parts of Sri Lanka, Phuket and the Maldives would be one example of possible content... Jpatokal 05:04, 27 Dec 2004 (EST)

I think that this is a great idea.... Probably just a summary on the Main Page, leading to a more detailed page or pages.... Pjamescowie 09:30, 27 Dec 2004 (EST)

So, inspired by events in south-east and south Asia, I just kicked off the [[Travel nto keep the news up-to-date at least for now. Again, I still think it's a great idea but it just doesn't seem to be working out for now. -- Mark 01:22, 15 Aug 2005 (EDT)
