Silly spambot... -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 08:16, 20 April 2006 (EDT)
 
  
==Archive==
 
I've bumped most of the older conversations which were here to
 
[[User:Mark/Archive]].
 
  
  
==[[:shared:Talk:Manual for administrators|Manual for administrators]]==
 
  
For once Wikitravel actually does have somewhat of an interwiki policy discussion, on the topic of administrator "guidelines" for dealing with unwanted edits; while we have pretty clear consensus exists here, it is lacking across language versions. I think you are a bit of an expert on this issue, and would appreciate it if you would have a look at the [[:shared:Talk:Manual for administrators|discussion]]. Thanks!  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 22:40, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
 
:Thanks for the heads-up! -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 16:03, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
 
:Opps, that link doesn't seem to go to a discussion. -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 16:19, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
 
::Whoops, I think I've got it right now.  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 19:10, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
 
  
==[[Chicago/West Side]]==
 
  
I'd like to split the West Side - I'm thinking about moving Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, Logan Square, and Bucktown to their own article. Any recommendations for what such an article might be called? I've seen "West Town" used as a designation before, but I'm not sure what that's supposed to cover. (Thought I'd ask your opinion because of the Innertown/Tuman's reference on the Talk page.) [[User:Gorilla Jones|Gorilla Jones]] 17:20, 12 August 2007 (EDT)
+
  
:West Town works, or at least it used to.  Thing is that West Town would also include everything north of Grand avenue and everything east of Humbolt Park (the park), so it's a slightly bigger chunk.  I think it could be argued that it's a better chunk to cut out though, since you can include the small Wishbone and Betty's. -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 18:59, 12 August 2007 (EDT)
 
  
==Barnstar==
 
  
Thanks! In all my wikidays, that's the first barnstar I've received, a moment of pride. [[User:Gorilla Jones|Gorilla Jones]] 18:19, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
 
  
==Bridgeport==
 
By all means, get that listing. I am a great fan of old-man bars. [[User:Gorilla Jones|Gorilla Jones]] 23:08, 11 September 2007 (EDT)
 
  
== Hotels in Paris ==
 
  
Hello. I was visiting the wikipedia articles on Paris because i will visit the town and i llok for a hotel. Thus i discovered your wonderful looking maps which you created on the parisian arrondissements. Allow me one question: what criterias have you chosen when you mapped the hotels, restaurants etc.? --[[User:85.179.103.77|85.179.103.77]] 17:07, 9 November 2007 (EST)
 
  
:Just whatever was in the guide at the time.  I'm in the process of switching to OpenStreetMap which will allow us to keep it up-to-date easier. -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 14:22, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

==Data dumps==
 
  
Hi Mark, I remember seeing long ago that you grabbed regular copies of Wikitravel content for back up. Are you still doing this? And if so, are you doing it for all language versions? Since IB won't release its data dumps (or even respond to questions of why they won't), I do occasionally have nightmares of massive amounts of work being lost!  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 00:38, 26 August 2008 (EDT)
 
  
== COTM - [[Copenhagen]] ==
 
  
Hey Mark, please take a look over at the Collaboration of Month [[Wikitravel:Collaborations_of_the_month|Nomination page]], and the Copenhagen entry. Also I'd really like some comments whether you'd be willing (and able) to help with lending a hand with your expertise on importing data from openstreetmap.org... Kind regards - [[User:Sertmann|Sertmann]] 17:38, 6 November 2008 (EST)

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...)

So it looks like we're in pretty good shape.  You'll want to add the listings to OSM, but that's just busy-work the rest is good -- [[User:Mark|Mark]] 14:56, 27 September 2009 (EDT)

Destination of the month



Hull is a quintessential northern English city, and one which has undergone a transformation in recent years. Situated on the Humber Estuary in Yorkshire, the town has some very interesting historical sites, a fascinating museum district, and a multitude of places to eat, drink and sleep. (more...)


Off the beaten path



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


Due to its cool mountain weather, Baguio is considered the summer capital of the Philippines.

Parliament Palace (pictured) in Bucharest spans 12 stories, 3100 rooms and covers over 330,000 sq m and is the second largest building in the world after Pentagon.
Quebec City's Old Town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only city in North America outside Mexico with its original city walls.
