Main Page
  
== Santa Fe article ==
 
  
I don't see any problem with the Santa Fe article. By "break(ing) somewhere in the 'Museums' section", do you mean the browser loads to the museums section and then stops? My best guess there is that your browser is failing to load the page fully. I don't know how you could fix this. [[User:PerryPlanet|PerryPlanet]] 21:50, 19 February 2008 (EST)
 
  
== MoS issue with New Mexico "Eat" listings... ==
 
  
Hey Bill. Listen, [[User:Texugo]] and I have been having a discussion about the Eat listings on the [[Albuquerque]] page. He's arguing that by our MoS standards, we shouldn't split ''local cuisine'' up from ''non-local cuisine'' ("New Mexican" vs "Other"), otherwise we'd have to do that to just about every article we have on Wikitravel (Japanese articles with ''Japanese food'' versus ''Other'', etc.).
 
  
Then I noticed that [[Santa Fe (New Mexico)|Santa Fe]] and [[Los Alamos]] also have this layout. So I wanted to get your opinion on the issue, seeing as you've been the main contributor to these articles. [[User:PerryPlanet|PerryPlanet]] 20:29, 30 March 2008 (EDT)
 
  
== Why are you doing this? ==
 
  
Why are you helping [[User:Kitty Forman|Kitty]] revert my edits? --[[User:Red Forman|Red Forman]] 23:35, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
+
:I'm trying to help out, Mr. Forman! ''[to Bill]'' Can you please block Red before he vandalizes more pages? --[[User:Kitty Forman|Kitty Forman]] 00:01, 31 May 2008 (EDT)

Someone tell her to shut-up! --[[User:Red Forman|Red Forman]] 00:09, 31 May 2008 (EDT)

==protecting Discover template==
 
Thanks for the warning. I don't want to block Jani's bot, but we're very concerned about vandalism on the templates on the home page. Judging by the quickness of your response, though, perhaps we can leave it to the admins to be vigilant. [[User:JuCo|JuCo]] 13:49, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
 
: I removed protection. Bill, is there a way to get notified when templates are changed? [[User:JuCo|JuCo]] 14:17, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
 
:: Great news. I'm glad that loop hole is closed and, like you say, if it doesn't work, we'll keep thinking. Thanks for keeping me updated! [[User:JuCo|JuCo]] 15:36, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
 
  
==Admin nomination==
 
  
Hey, I just nominated [[User:LtPowers]] for sysop status. I'd appreciate it if you would [[Wikitravel:Administrator nominations|comment here]]. Thanks!  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 19:03, 17 August 2008 (EDT)
 
  
==Colorado regions==
 
[[Image:Colorado regions map.png|thumb|350px|very rough & copyrighted draft]]
 
  
Hey Bill, I noticed you led the charge on the Colorado regions organization, and I had a question. As the boundaries are currently defined, there is a "gap" (in black) between [[Southwestern Colorado]] and [[Northwestern Colorado]], since I-70 (the northwest's southern border) slices 5 counties in half that are not included in the southwestern list of counties. Is it fair to include the southern half of those counties in the southwest of the state? If this isn't clear, I'll be uploading a map soon in which I do include those "half counties" in the southwestern region.  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 16:17, 27 August 2008 (EDT)
 
  
:By the way, that would put [[Aspen]] in the southwest, which may not be so great. Another option would be to take out the I-70 as southern border (except vis-a-vis [[South Central Colorado]]), and just let the region go down to the Southwestern Counties. What do you think?  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 16:20, 27 August 2008 (EDT)
 
  
::One last question (and feel free to move this discussion to [[Talk:Colorado]] if you like): don't the [[Front Range]] and [[Denver area]] overlap? Certainly [[Jefferson County]] would. Should we treat the Denver Area as a sub-region of the Front Range?  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 16:23, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

Excellent abbreviation! What if we make it more widely used in VFD page? :-) --[[User:DenisYurkin|DenisYurkin]] 17:15, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
 
  
== vfd's ==
 
  
Thanks for clearing those out, I wanted to myself, but was too wrapped up in the arguments. I'm not sure what we can do about it, but all of these ones that keep coming up as "merge and redirect" never actually get merged before the vfd ends. Not sure what we can do about that though &ndash; [[User:Cacahuate|<font color="green">cacahuate</font>]]  <sup><small>[[User talk:Cacahuate|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]</small></sup> 18:46, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
 
  
:Insert a <nowiki>{{merge|into}}</nowiki> notice (or something similar, stating there's consensus on merge) into the vfd'ed page, and leave it to be merged some day by a volunteer? --[[User:DenisYurkin|DenisYurkin]] 16:53, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
 
::Seems reasonable, and I'd like to have done that if there was a consensus to merge the Thailand articles.  However, I didn't see any such consensus in those cases. -- [[User:Bill-on-the-Hill|Bill-on-the-Hill]] 17:48, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
 
  
:::The only thing with a merge template is that the article will likely sit there for ages, and essentially have been ''kept'' instead of deleted. Maybe some sort of time frame can be set to merge it before it's deleted. Like 14 days from end of vfd or something &ndash; [[User:Cacahuate|<font color="green">cacahuate</font>]]  <sup><small>[[User talk:Cacahuate|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]</small></sup> 18:17, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
 
  
:::I like the timeframe idea: if anyone care of preserving useful content, this is a good motivator to do so. As for "no consensus": has this approach seriously discussed before, somewhere? --[[User:DenisYurkin|DenisYurkin]] 07:24, 26 October 2008 (EDT)

Hi Bill, You are the resident expert on all things in the Four Corners states, so I would appreciate your feedback on reorganzing Colorado's Other Destinations section.

Hey Bill - many thanks for your diligence in keeping the VFD page in order. Between that page and the "Discover" blurbs I think you've single-handedly kept two major sections of the site running over the past few months, and lest your good deeds go unnoticed I figured I'd drop a thank you here.  Much appreciated! -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 17:33, 4 March 2009 (EST)

== South Pole ==
 
I had moved the  [[South Pole]] into the slush pile, because it doesn't have support, it's not at the required status level, and there haven't been any real significant changes made to the page to warrant keeping it. The nominations are a bit cluttered, and this one seemed like a dead-end nomination, but if you think it has potential, that's fine. It would definitely be an interesting feature.

Eindhoven is dominated by industrial development as the city's history is inextricably linked to electronics giant Philips, and to a lesser degree, DAF. Although those industries have mostly disappeared, they have left the city a rich industrial heritage and a lot of museums. In addition, over the past decade the city has become the so-called capital of Dutch design. (more...)
I had added entries to the top and middle in an attempt to eliminate the Japanese promince, which was mentioned on the [[Wikitravel talk:Discover|talk page]]. Also, because [[Okayama]] is about to become a DotM, I was trying to prevent the Japanese entries from appearing so much in August. A few more entries could probably be used to diversify the Japanese entries towards the bottom, but I will certainly add to the bottom once they are more dispersed. By no means was I trying to promote my own additions to the page over those of other contributors. I appologize if it seemed that way. [[User:ChubbyWimbus|ChubbyWimbus]] 00:12, 30 July 2009 (EDT)
