To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub.
Yes, I meant that haha. I changed my opinion :) Globe-trotter 13:53, 7 August 2009 (EDT)
Why did you move Lumphini Park out of Bangkok/Silom into Sukhumvit? It's right next to Silom and there's even an MRT exit from Silom station into the park. Jpatokal 06:54, 11 August 2009 (EDT)
...for helping clean up Bangkok, that data dump from TAT (all the random listings on the main page) has been a real bitch to get sorted out. Jpatokal 03:20, 15 August 2009 (EDT)
Great page on Hilversum. For those of my generation (55+) Radio Hilversum was a mark on a dial of the old-fashioned valve radios. That was about all we knew of the place. You indicate it was a media town but might like to specifically mention why Hilversum appeared on all our radios. While you are at it, I don't understand the phrase >the notorious infrastructure system< and you should correct "amount" of people to number of people.Shep 14:30, 15 September 2009 (EDT)
Status of Ubud Article
I see that you reverted my edit which changed the status of this article from guide to usable. Why is that please? The article does not closely follow the Wikitravel manual of style which is a requirement for guide status. Virtually every listing in this article is a bullet with random prose. Very few listing templates are used which is surely a requirement? I made this point when changing the status on the article talk page --Burmesedays 09:44, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
Climbing Mount Batukaru
It is arguable either way. Personally I prefer it in the Tabanan article which I designed to cover the western part of the central region. You are correct that with the road through Jatiluwih now being passable, Mount Batukaru is accessible from south of Bedugul. Lots of folk approach the climb from Sanda though (I have climbed the mountain 3 times from this direction) and the start of that ascent route is not accessible from Bedugul. If it does go into the Bedugul article then the preamble to the Bedugul article will need to be changed and Pura Luhur Batukaru would also need to be moved. From a purely practical viewpont that would also leave the Tabanan article very thinly spread.--Burmesedays 10:40, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
Hilversum makes it to Stardom
New Bangkok map
Why did you delete the audit update of where we stand with London boroughs from Talk:London? I am finding it very difficult to navigate that discussion and think it really helpful to have an updated list (which others can correct or add to). I am thinking it may have been a mistake (?) so am reverting for now. Cheers :) --Burmesedays 09:05, 8 December 2009 (EST)
I noticed that you bulleted the See and Do sections of West Bali. I had understood that the See and Do sections of a region article should be in prose format and not listed bullet points? See here for example. Cheers. --Burmesedays 10:00, 10 December 2009 (EST)
Why change countries to regions? They are all countries in the list. Regions should go above when Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia are discussed. Shep 06:47, 23 December 2009 (EST)
Seeing all the work you've done on the CoTM, I'd like to point you to another task that could really need some help - the Recent changes patrol. As I've just pointed out in the pub, at the moment me and Burmesedays seem to be doing the lions share of the patrolling, but the more users involved in this, the less tedious it gets - the ultimate goal is making sure no edits go unpatrolled - About a quarter sometimes up to half the edits on English wikitravel, are ones that need to be reverted, so it's a pretty essential task to keeping WT clean and useful for everyone.
Of-course everyone one is welcome to contribute with whatever they feel like doing, just wanted to make sure you knew about his task. The more users involved in making sure there are no red exclamation marks on the recent changes page, the less tedious it get's. Personally I think a good approach is clicking on the "diff/X changes" on everything unpatrolled while holding down the ctrl button to open them all in new tabs, and then just go through them methodically
Since you were so instrumental in making the London cotm our most successful collaboration of all time, I thought you might like to look over the results. Thanks again for your help! --Peter Talk 14:13, 1 January 2010 (EST)
How to draw a map
I have finally re-written this and would be grateful for any input you have (especially as I used your Thailand map as an example :) ). My thinking is on Peter's talk page, so I will not clutter your page and repeat it here. Cheers. --Burmesedays 07:55, 8 January 2010 (EST)
