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/184.108.40.206 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)
