== Discover section ==

Hi!
 +
I don't like to sound picky but it would be nice if you would also add the facts that you add to the Discover section to the articles themselves if they aren't already there. I added the flag fact to [[Brasilia]] after verifying it from the Portuguese Wikipedia, because I was quite sure that the largest regularly hoisted flag was the one on [[Mexico_City/Centro#Landmarks|Mexico City's]] Plaza de la Constitución. And for the Thai sandwich - it is not in the article and I cannot find any specific Thai name for it (which would be good to have) by googling. You seem to be quite familiar with Thailand, so perhaps you  know what is is called.  [[User:Ypsilon|Ypsilon]] 10:57, 20 January 2012 (EST)

:Sometimes I think the facts don't necessarily add much to the article (e.g. the Schiphol fact). However, I see it is required to add it, so I'll do so from now on. About the ice cream on a sandwich, it's exactly what it sounds like and doesn't really have a name. This link [http://sweets.seriouseats.com/2010/01/ice-cream-sundaes-on-a-hot-dog-bun-bangkok-thailand-weekend-market.html] shows some more about it. --[[User:Globe-trotter|Globe-trotter]] 00:13, 21 January 2012 (EST)

::Ideally, Discover facts should ''already be'' in the linked articles.  Adding them if they're added just to meet the requirement can result in awkward wording.  [[User:LtPowers|LtPowers]] 13:08, 21 January 2012 (EST)

== Krakow map ==

Hi, I just added a map on [[Krakow]] Talk page. I read that you give feedback on maps, what you think? I wonder if names of districts are necessary and if I should include positions of some attractions located away from the centre (like Zoo or Tyniec monastery which is close to freeway ringroad).  [[User:Jjtk|Jjtk]] 11:52, 5 February 2012 (EST)

Hello,
  
 +
I thought I would have a go at combining the two maps you made of Bangkok's water transport: those of the Chao Phraya river ferries and the Khlong Saen Saep ferries (they're the ones pictured here for your reference). I made a first draft to see what other users think, it still needs some work. The SVG is Image:Bangkok waterways.svg and the PNG is Image:Bangkok waterways.png.
  
 +
First, what do you think? I think this would save space in the article and aid understanding of the canal's locations as it's easy to miss.
  
 +
If you like this idea, I may also try to overlay the BTS, airport train and metro to create one map of Bangkok's transport. Please let me know what your opinion.

[[Image:Israel map.png|thumb|right]]Hi. I wanted to ask of you a very small change in the Israel map you created, if you feel like it (I'm Israeli, BTW). The line between the [[Israeli Coastal Plain]] and the [[Shephelah]] isn't accurate: the Shephelah needs to include that small "dent" just next to where the "n" in Coastal Plain is currently. That's where the city of [[Modiin]] is, and it's definitely better grouped in the Shephelah (where the article currently correctly puts it). Thanks. --[[User:ElectAbuzzzz|ElectAbuzzzz]] 06:52, 9 April 2012 (EDT)

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...)

Discover section

Hi! I don't like to sound picky but it would be nice if you would also add the facts that you add to the Discover section to the articles themselves if they aren't already there. I added the flag fact to Brasilia after verifying it from the Portuguese Wikipedia, because I was quite sure that the largest regularly hoisted flag was the one on Mexico City's Plaza de la Constitución. And for the Thai sandwich - it is not in the article and I cannot find any specific Thai name for it (which would be good to have) by googling. You seem to be quite familiar with Thailand, so perhaps you know what is is called. Ypsilon 10:57, 20 January 2012 (EST)

Sometimes I think the facts don't necessarily add much to the article (e.g. the Schiphol fact). However, I see it is required to add it, so I'll do so from now on. About the ice cream on a sandwich, it's exactly what it sounds like and doesn't really have a name. This link [1] shows some more about it. --Globe-trotter 00:13, 21 January 2012 (EST)

Ideally, Discover facts should already be in the linked articles. Adding them if they're added just to meet the requirement can result in awkward wording. LtPowers 13:08, 21 January 2012 (EST)

Hi, I just added a map on Krakow Talk page. I read that you give feedback on maps, what you think? I wonder if names of districts are necessary and if I should include positions of some attractions located away from the centre (like Zoo or Tyniec monastery which is close to freeway ringroad).

Hello,

I made a first draft to see what other users think, it still needs some work. The SVG is Image:Bangkok waterways.svg and the PNG is Image:Bangkok waterways.png.

If you like this idea, I may also try to overlay the BTS, airport train and metro to create one map of Bangkok's transport. Please let me know what your opinion.

Second, the PNG file that I made doensn't seem to create a preview but does appear to be viewable at full size. Is this a known problem? Is it just my computer? I'd value your help.
