WHY IS MY MAP OF MEDAN "DUBIOUS" - PROVIDE SOME JUSTIFICATION!! DON'T JUST DELETE USEFUL INFO WITHOUT REASON.
I thought sections called “Attractions near Metro Station” and “Connections to NCR region via Metro” would be very useful for travelers and tourists. Don't you think so? Please suggest - Dhempe
Edit count stats
Do you know of a page that displays the weekly edit counts stats for the various language versions? -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 01:05, 6 January 2007 (EST)
Age of Consent
While reducing the amount of commentary about sex crimes by a contributor (which I thought was needed too) you added the age of consent for a few countries. What you wrote for some of them like Philippines and Cambodia doesn't match what Interpol says. I'm not sure what source you're working from, so I thought I'd ask before I make further edits in case you have a more useful source. -- Colin 00:51, 8 January 2007 (EST)
The new table is a great tool for analysing and understanding the versions' growth. Thanks for creating it! -- Ricardo (Rmx) 08:01, 12 January 2007 (EST)
The southeastern border of Bhutan has been allowing travelers to exit for some time. The problems were that there was no provision for offering exit stamps there, and so travelers still had to return to Phuentsholing to get the paper work done. Do you know if that has changed? I've not read anything in the local press to that effect. Also, the Indian authorities on the Assam border were only offering entry stamps to foreigners on a case by case basis. Do you know if that has changed? Without this stamp, travelers will have problems departing from India. WindHorse 12:14, 14 January 2007 (EST)
Would you please upload...
Could I ask you to upload this? Your site doesn't give copyright info and I don't want to assume what you told me about your images already uploaded to WT is the same for images not yet uploaded. Thanks. -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 23:57, 17 January 2007 (EST)
I called the Norwegian Embassy in Azerbaijan and it seems that they are fine with the usage of the Sheki tourism map. How, according to Wikitravel rules do I post the image on the Sheki site? Thanks for your assistance!
Jpatokal, I'm sorry
Listen, I'm sorry for lying about the image. And you're perfectly right about me not being a wikitraveller, but please consider. you are welcome to block me off (i promise never never to do it ever again). if you think that you can forgive me, please post your comments on my talk page. with due apology (once again), Upamanyuwikitravel 08:05, 22 January 2007 (EST)
Hey there, just a quick question since you're online... what's with all of the hotel websites that his person is adding that all end in ?r=947 like http://www.themerchanthotel.com/?r=947 - is this something fishy... like maybe getting a referral credit or something? ::: Cacahuate 10:54, 22 January 2007 (EST)
Thanks, not too difficult on my part... I've been a significant editor of the article that that image is used in on Wikipedia, so that image in a travel guide on India stuck out like a sore thumb. Cheers, JYolkowski 20:10, 23 January 2007 (EST)
Will it really be the new millennium in Ethiopia on September 11, 2007? One thing that always drove me nuts was when people would be preparing for the "millennium" in 1999, when in fact the new millennium didn't start until January 1, 2001 00:01. (At least according to the Gregorian calendar.) -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 01:45, 27 January 2007 (EST)
Dearest Commander of the Bots,
Hey Jani - I'm not sure if your experiment with the VFD template was a work in progress or not, but I was getting a link to Wikipedia from one of the new additions so I rolled it back for now. Feel free to revert my revert if I've misunderstood something. -- Ryan 13:52, 28 January 2007 (EST)
MMMMMMMWWWWWAHHHH! Thanks for saving me the time of looking up where Huazhou is. --Evan 21:51, 30 January 2007 (EST)
Starting another language version of wikitravel
How does one start wikitravel in a new language?? I'd like to start a Hindi or/and Bengali wikitravel. Upamanyuwikitravel 05:28, 2 February 2007 (EST)
You still around Delhi?
I'll be there on Tuesday, flying home Wednesday night... wanna grab a bite? ::: Cacahuate 05:38, 4 February 2007 (EST)
My bad - some of the other edits from that IP looked questionable, and so I just assumed Faroese was as well. That'll teach me not to mess about with Scandinavian articles when the Jani-bot is patrolling. -- Virginia 22:19, 5 February 2007 (EST)
Can I ask why "we don't do Google maps"? Surely it's a valuable service to provide an exact location? Bobo12345 23:06, 5 February 2007 (EST)
Hi, I see you have reverted an edit I made on Zimbabwe. I can't see what is wrong with my change; the article does not match the country template and my change just fixes that. -- NJR_ZA 23:41, 5 February 2007 (EST)
Could I ask you to ask the creator of the Taipei districts map (Image:Taipei Districts.PNG) to provide me with the svg format? Unfotunately, for me, the user's user page is in Chinese so I'm a little loss and since your Chinese is better than mine I'd appreciate the help. -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 15:03, 7 February 2007 (EST)
Confirming my photography
Yes, I can confirm that the pictures I have added on the Guiyang, Guizhou and Anshun pages are mine. I took the Anshun and Guizhou pictures in 2004 while I was living in Zunyi. I took the picture of the Jiaxiu Pavilion in Guiyang earlier this week since I currently reside there.
So you live in Singapore? Cool, I lived there from 1997-2000. It's a great place. Cheers, guiyang_laoshi
href spam pattern
Hi Jani - I've restored the href spam pattern in Wikitravel:Local spam blacklist as we seem to have a sharp increase in spam with it removed - see Special:Contributions/126.96.36.199 for one example. What exactly was it blocking, and is there perhaps some other way to resolve the issue? -- Ryan 16:22, 11 February 2007 (EST)
Thanks for your encouraging words.... Webkami 04:05, 13 February 2007 (EST)
Have you ever seen the movie Lost in Translation? If so, there's a part of the movie where Bill Murray is on a set and a Japanese director is going on and on about something, then the translator simply says "Turn toward the camera". By any chance would you know if that's really what they were saying in Japanese or were they talking about something else completely? Thanks. -- Sapphire 23:14, 17 February 2007 (EST)
Bots and Brisbane
Would it be possible to set up a bot to detect the Myer Center vandalism on the Brisbane article? It's the same thing every time, no variance. Have to give the guy credit for persistence. Gorilla Jones 07:34, 18 February 2007 (EST)
Do you think it's worth porting in the ryokans in the Japanese Innkeepers Association listings for Kyoto? Informative, or clutter? I haven't stayed at any of them - all I can do is comment on their location (and, in a few cases, their exterior). Gorilla Jones 22:40, 19 February 2007 (EST)
Hey, I want to import Guinsa to de: and we're going to translate it to make it our next "OtPB", which we call "AdTp", the only problem is that while I import it your name shows up on the "history" somewhere along the line the site won't attribute you in the footer. Would you be upset if I instead attributed you as the author on the talk page of the article? -- Sapphire 20:23, 20 February 2007 (EST)
Hey,Mr. Jani, I didn't mean to sound rude or anything. If I did, I just want to point out that no offence was meant okay. BTW, Shimla has a lot of mid-range accomodation(Rs 2500-3000) and most of it is concentrated on Cart Road and The Mall(especially the Eastern bit). P.S. Hey, please don't refer to me as my little spoiled boy - I repeat, I'm sorry, I agree I crossed the limits of decency. I'm copying this onto your talk page. — Upamanyuwikitravel 08:39, 23 February 2007 (EST)
May I use some of your photos for a geography project on SE Asia on a powerpoint presentation? Only 2 of them, the Singapore one and the Thailand one? Please let me know on my talk-page. Upamanyuwikitravel 08:51, 23 February 2007 (EST)
Jpatokal, you undid a lot of good edits/additions that I had to made to Rai Leh. I'm guessing that you undid them in error but if there is something that you didn't like, such as formatting or style, let me know and I'll fix it. Otherwise, I'm left scratching my head. Johnycanal 16:27, 23 February 2007 (EST)
What is your justification of labeling BAPS as controversial in the Delhi article? Moksha88 16:35, 23 February 2007 (EST)
Hi, I made edits to the Ubud article yesterday, and I see you cleaned them up some; thanks. I've just made some more and thought I should explain that the phone number format here is to use +62361... when calling from outside Indonesia, and to use 0361... for calls placed from inside the contry (handphones work with either format). Your site probably has guidelines on this sort of thing somewhere, but I've not seen them.
FYI, this is an internet cafe machine, so other may edit using it. This IP is used by many different places.
North Korea - Embassies
Hi, I see you reverted my changes to the sentance US and Canadian citizens can visit the Swedish Embassy for advice, thats changed now, the British Embassy now incorporates the Canadian Diplomatic Consular Mission, offering basic services for Canadians.:) --MiddleEastern 08:55, 25 February 2007 (EST)
Great Wall of China
Thanks for keeping me on the straight and narrow. It took so long to write up the changes for the page that I was at the point of seeing the trees and not the forest. Great idea about the provincial sections inthe SEE section. It never even crossed my mind about doing it that way. Celticevergreen 00:27, 26 February 2007 (EST)
Would you please school me in what "synthetic school" means? From Guinsa: A synthetic school that holds the Lotus Sutra as the peak of the Buddha's teachings, Cheontae posits the following mindbending truths... -- Sapphire • (Talk) • 21:25, 26 February 2007 (EST)
"If Tokyo ..."の記述、大阪・東京比較、関東・関西比較は間違っていますよ。俗説のネタです。事実誤認、捏造もあります。訂正されたし。
Is this image legit?
Hey Jani, check out this image -- http://wikitravel.org/shared/Image:Great_sand_dunes.JPEG -- and see whether you think it's on the level. Several things about it don't look right to me. (I've been to the park it illustrates.) -- Bill-on-the-Hill 23:50, 1 March 2007 (EST)
Crime doesn't pay
Sorry to hear (via Talk:Osaka) that you're facing a three-year prison term for your role as first violinist in the mokarimakka scandal. But dangerous people do need to be locked up, so... Gorilla Jones 10:54, 3 March 2007 (EST)
Hi, I found this and saw the problem of Japanese categories. Sorry. If need, I'll put them back. By the way, I changed categories of Hong Kong and France. Is it problem? ja:User:Tatata 10:48, 4 March 2007 (EST)
Looks like DiscoverBot is on the fritz again, in a new and creative way. It's taking things off the top of the queue, but apparently not updating Template:Discover with the extracted item, just sending them off to write-only memory. There has been no change in the displayed trivia for several days now. Suppose you might investigate? -- Bill-on-the-Hill 17:31, 6 March 2007 (EST)
Airlines and FF programs
Jani: What would you think of having articles about airlines and frequent flyer programs on Wikitravel? The idea nibbles at me every time I try to figure something out through Flyertalk and can't find it. (They don't even know how to use their own wiki!) - Sekicho 22:30, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
