This edit is probably a spambot
Silly spambot... -- Mark 08:16, 20 April 2006 (EDT)
I've bumped most of the older conversations which were here to User:Mark/Archive.
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 discussion. Thanks! --Peter Talk 22:40, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
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.) Gorilla Jones 17:20, 12 August 2007 (EDT)
Thanks! In all my wikidays, that's the first barnstar I've received, a moment of pride. Gorilla Jones 18:19, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
By all means, get that listing. I am a great fan of old-man bars. 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.? --220.127.116.11 17:07, 9 November 2007 (EST)
Thanks for the info. I read the phone numbers help page and I guess I had a hard time disiphering it. From now on I'll make sure to use the tips you gave me. CarsonR
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! --Peter Talk 00:38, 26 August 2008 (EDT)
COTM - Copenhagen
Hey Mark, please take a look over at the Collaboration of 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 - Sertmann 17:38, 6 November 2008 (EST)
