Talk:Santa Fe (New Mexico)
I've started populating the "Eat" section, but it needs a lot of work. Santa Fe is an absolutely extraordinary place for dining and my own experiences here, despite living in the area for close to 30 years, barely scratch the surface. Please add stuff if you can. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 17:33, 23 Sep 2005 (EDT)
Per our earlier discussion, I like the way this article is coming along and think it might eventually be a candidate for Destination of the Month. One of the DOTM requirements is that the article have a couple of good photos -- commons.wikimedia.org doesn't have any non-GFDL images for Santa Fe that I could find, so does anyone else know a source for CC-SA Santa Fe images? -- Ryan 00:12, 29 Sep 2005 (EDT)

Uh, Ryan, why that last revert to the Santa Fe page? I actually made the reverted change myself. I just wasn't on a computer that I could easily login from (was traveling this weekend to check a few things out and used somebody else's comp while on the road). The "teenager, not much to do" verbiage long pre-dated my work on that page and is much at odds with other things on it, but I wanted to leave the earlier poster's remarks about movie houses, etc.
Meanwhile, I got a connection to some photos that I think will top the thing off. Will apply them as soon as the guy who promised them gets home and sends me mail. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 20:00, 2 Oct 2005 (EDT)
Sunrise Springs revert
Note to whoever put in the Sunrise Springs mention: thanks, it's a place that truly deserves mention, but it was already in there (under Sleep/Splurge). I've done the revert. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 19:43, 20 Oct 2005 (EDT)
For completeness, this article should have a "Drink" section, but I am unqualified to write it. Anybody want to have a go? -- Bill-on-the-Hill 20:16, 3 Dec 2005 (EST)
I rolled back links for an interior designer and what looked like a software company. I'm not sure what use they would be to the traveler. --Evan 19:57, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)
Usable, not Guide
So, I realize this article is up for Wikitravel:Destination of the month, but we need a lot of work on it. In particular, most of the listings aren't in the format required for Wikitravel:attraction listings, Wikitravel:restaurant listings, Wikitravel:accommodation listings, etc. I think we need to have at least addresses and phone numbers, and preferably some price range for maybe 50-60% of the listings. Opening hours would be good, too. I think a lot of these listings have links, so non-New-Mexicans can chip in and add info. I'll take a poke at a few of the listings.
I'm sorry to be a downer, and I'm probably being too strict, but I think this article needs some polish before calling it a real guide. --Evan 12:25, 16 Dec 2005 (EST)
There are several subtleties to the museums that I have tried to capture in the current (23:32 16 Dec 05) version of the text. If you're planning on any surgery to these, please give me a heads-up beforehand and I'll try to help; seemingly reasonable prose can turn out to be misleading if you're not careful. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 00:37, 17 Dec 2005 (EST)
OK, so I've added a .PNG version of the overview map. This is to be considered a preliminary version with a few bugs to be worked out while awaiting a good .SVG of the same area. Feel free! Map of the downtown area will follow. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 09:43, 10 Jan 2006 (EST)
