Folks often do not say things they should, so I will: it is great to have you back and firing at Wikitravel. Onto business.... how are you fixed for finishing up the B&H map? I seem to remember you saying you had computer issues which were preventing the use of Inkscape? I bumped the discussion about your region scheme and Vidimian is in agreement with it. That's a good sign as he seems to have a good grasp of that tricky region.--Burmesedays 10:36, 24 April 2010 (EDT)
Hi, Why did you delete the new listings for MP3 tours of Australia? They weren't spam, were extremely relevant, and were no different to the other non-government external links right next to them (e.g. The Rocks Ghost Tours). Please at least have the courtesy to leave a comment in your edits or you simply entice people to undo your reversion.
If external links are such a no-no then Wikitravel should remove the Add Listing button or at least the URL field therein. You're sending mixed messages.
Hi, I'm wondering why you deleted a listing from the Marrakech tours section May 26th, after having deleted a bunch of the listings last October? I tried to start a discussion on the issue last October (Talk:Marrakech), but I didn't really get a response as to why some were deleted but not others. I'm the one who originally added the Berber Travel Adventures listing and it very easily meets the criteria in Wikitravel:Activity_listings#Tour_listings. I've been on the tours personally, and there is no doubt it constitutes a value added activity. No traveler could do this on his/her own. Thanks. -- Spmenic 23:54, 22 June 2010 (EDT)
Spam user accounts
Category between Outline and Usable?
Hi Stefan, I've been contributing to Wikitravel for a while (and finally decided to get an account to track my changes). One thing that's been a little frustrating for me is I often go to areas that were just outline articles, and fill them in so that they're at least usable, for example Liwa Oasis and Puerto Suarez. I don't want to upgrade them to "Usable Articles" because in comparison to, say, Amsterdam or Aspen there's hardly any information, but for a traveller like me, there's absolutely enough to get there and get started.
I was wondering if you and some other senior editors might consider adding a new category between Outline and Usable, so that I can feel less guilty about upgrading my articles into the ranks of Amsterdam and such, but still feel good about having fleshed out the article. Something like "Basic Articles" would be nice...
This is an ego thing, I guess. Let me know what you think. Amornoguerra 00:06, 16 September 2010 (EDT)
Hi Sermann. I wonder if you could check this file for me. I've been translating maps into Portuguese, and this one appears to be broken-- won't open in Inkscape after I download it. Also, I wonder why it has those thin white lines across it. Anyway, please let me know when you have time... Thanks! - Texugo 11:02, 20 September 2010 (EDT)
Why did you remove Pirates Cove from the sleep section. Check out their web page before you assume they're a tour operator. It is a hotel first. Please put back. Thanks Captjack 10:02, 22 September 2010 (EDT)
Hi Stefan, last year you nomiated Khartoum as Dotm which is interesting because Africa is quite often neglected. Do you intend to finalise the article or shall we slush pile it for Dotm? Best regards, jan 03:06, 11 October 2010 (EDT)
Star nomination for Diving the Cape Peninsula and False Bay
Hi Stefan. I dont see your signature around as much these days as before, so assume you are taking a break. Maybe travelling? Anyway, I have finally got Diving the Cape Peninsula and False Bay to a stage where there are enough good sub-articles (dive sites) that I think it can be nominated for star, and since you suggested the nomination way back when I started, I take the liberty to personally advise you that it is now in the pipeline, waiting for reviews and comments. :-) Cheers, Peter (Southwood) Talk 03:05, 15 October 2010 (EDT)
Regarding this edit, you can also purge the topic to rebuild breadcrumbs - just click on the history tab and then change the "action" parameter in the URL to "purge". Example: http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Zealand&action=purge. Note that after purging you might need to click on the "Article" tab to see the article with the newly-generated breadcrumbs. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:50, 17 February 2011 (EST)
Pitcairn talk page
Please do not revert my Pitcairn Talk page edits (deletions) - I have a non-molestation court order for this - (# 11-1) and after investigating the Wikitravel website for two hours I can not find anywhere to deliver it - so I did the edits myself. Please give me an email address to serve this court order.
time formats revisited
Given your interest in the time formats discussion and/or the star nomination that was almost sidelined over this matter, I thought I should let you know I've reopened the discussion. Hopefully (unlikely perhaps, but hopefully) we can reach a more definitive conclusion on this matter. PerryPlanet Talk 00:45, 23 June 2011 (EDT)
Breadcrumb fixup list refreshed!
Hi Sertmann! Thanks for your hard work fixing breadcrumb. I have re-run the algorithm on a fresh wikitravel dump so your help would be greatly appreciated :-) http://wikitravel.org/en/User:Nicolas1981/Syntax_checks/no-breadcrumb Thanks a lot! Nicolas1981 21:55, 6 November 2011 (EST)
It should go without saying that attempting to discourage WTers from contributing constructively to this site will not be tolerated. That's the reason for your block, which I have made temporary in case you decide to make constructive contributions yourself. We have a great group of people who continue to contribute here. If you'd like to continue, or return at any time, you are more than welcome. But, to be a bit more blunt (and I apologize) if you are just leaving, just leave. We'd be sorry to see you go, but there's no reason to hang around a site you no longer wish to contribute to.--IBobi talk email 15:17, 2 September 2012 (EDT)
You added Leonardo dot com in the blacklist [] "at least until we got some dialogue with user". May I ask about conversation now?
Thank you in advance.
