Hi, Peter... I noticed you reverted a change to the D.C. climate data... the same IP user changed NYC, WDW, and NOLA as well; should they be reverted as well? LtPowers 22:28, 10 January 2012 (EST)
RE: Maryland articles
Hey Peter, thank you for the compliments! I've been pretty busy lately but it would be awesome to help out getting an article up to Destination of the Month status, so I'll see what I can do. :) travelguy101 19:52, 6 February 2012 (EST)
SQL dump access for Evopedia 2012 edition
Peter, I am working with the Evopedia project http://evopedia.info/ to process the yearly wikipedia dumps. If you could provide us with a recent SQL database dump for each language you choose to share we could include wikitravel in our available databases useful to travelers relying on their mobile device as an offline Hitchikers Guide to World. This would of course also be good exposure for Internet Brands. thanks David you can reach me at dj hat personaltelco.net
The art you reference is making fun of the Blue Dog art by George Rodrigue. It's a run over Blue Dog meant to poke fun at this artist who made a lot of money selling his Blue Dog folk art. This particular graffiti artist has posted the run over image of the blue dog in many locations. It has nothing to do with being a cat neighborhood. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs)
Help with a districts map
Hi Peter. Nice work on cleaning up Wikitravel:How to draw a map. I thought I'd have a go at districtifying Dhaka, after you'd updated the instructions. I did manage fairly well to transform the OSM map to our standards. But it's still a little messy, mostly because the OSM mapping of Dhaka was quite disorganised. I'm having some issues applying the coloured district shading over the top of the map; I can't get a good level of precision and it always looks wonky or overlapped. Did you want to have a go if you get a chance? I've got another PNG which is a rough outline of where the district borders should be. Let me know if you've got time, and I can post the SVG-in-progress. If not, no problems at all. Thanks, JamesA >talk 08:13, 24 May 2012 (EDT)
Edit window resizing
Has anyone else had their edit window become tiny lately? --Peter Talk 18:41, 21 October 2011 (EDT)
Only new tabs load?
Another bizarre problem: often trying to open a link will result in a never-ending page load (no content accessed). I also have this problem when hitting go on special:recentchanges. But if I open the link in a new window/tab, then it loads promptly. Firefox. And no idea what's going on. Anyone else? --Peter Talk 18:47, 21 October 2011 (EDT)
You know that I was gassed there three times, right?
Vandalism on fr:
It looks like you're an admin on French Wikitravel - would you mind cleaning up after fr:Spécial:Contributions/126.96.36.199? He's hit several language versions with mostly harmless vandalism (and has been blocked on several language versions), but it would be nice to have clean content. Thanks! -- Ryan • (talk) • 23:34, 8 July 2012 (EDT)
Yep -- cacheing change is in effect. I put a note in the Shared Pub. Site speed should slowly build back up to and then exceed last week's performance, and most upgrade bugs should already be resolved.--IBobi 18:49, 9 July 2012 (EDT)
Nice work with the formalising of Russia stuff. My Russian is pretty poor, but I wrote most of the RFE articles originally, plus the Kolyma Highway article. I would be happy to help out with whatever else my expertise can stretch to, though if you're able to tap the domestic traveller info, you're probably already way ahead.

Sanliurfa Page/ Abraham's Path
Hi there You keep undoing my addition of AP to the Sanliurfa page under 'do'. I represent the Path in Turkey. It is a walkway like the Pennine Way or the Lycian Way or the Way of St. James. It is a cultural route and not a trek sold by village home stays. It exists as a separate entity from village home stays, and it will exist long after village home stays has bitten the dust. I happen to be the spokesperson for Village Home Stays (I am its creator, but I don't own it, I just act as an intermediary between foreign visitors and village home owners)and also the representative in Turkey of the cultural trekking route: Abraham's Path. The Path stretches from Sanliurfa to Hebron, and I organize the Turkish bit (way marking, mapping, planning walks for people etc). So, Abraham's Path and Village Home Stays are not a double listing. One is a walk which is open to the public, like the Pennine Way; one is accommodation. I happen to represent both of them. Please see the international site at www.abrahampath.org and also the Turkey Culture Routes site at www.culturetroutesinturkey.com. Many of the routes on that site are represented on Wikitravel, so why not Abraham's Path? Abraham's Path has NOTHING to do with Village home stays except for the fact that I represent both of them, and Village Home Stays is on the Path, but then so are all of the other accommodations listed on the page. i.e. you can walk along AP in Turkey and stay at village home stays or the Hotel Arte or the Aslan Konuk Evi etc.
