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.
my name is Ashley, i found your page on denmark useful, and was looking for some more information.
I will be visiting Denmark in july as part of a team of 4 scouts( from England) we will be travelling throughout the country for 10 days, and aim to research viking history within your country. we will be flying to Copenhagen, and then travelling through the country to Ribe.
we will be living on a strict budget of 100dk per day, which is needed to cover accomodation, food and transport.
I would greatly appreciate any information which you may have on any aspects of visiting denmark. particuarly, i am looking for information on the 'nature camps' available at some locations. If you know anything about these within copenhagen and the surrounding regions then that would be of great use.
Also, i am looking for any useful information you may have on public transport, and attractions of viking heritage.
If you can help me at all, then you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thankyou, Ashley Mellor :)
Thanks for your help fixing the syntax errors listed on User:Nicolas1981/Syntax_checks!
I wanted to fix the probable typo "the journey can more just" on your user page but unfortunately it is protected.
Happy New Year! Nicolas1981 03:06, 5 January 2010 (EST)

Maps and things
Stefan, I have finally gotten around to re-writing How to draw a map and would be grateful for any input you might have. I have explained the thinking on Peter's talk page so will not clog up your page with the same words. And completely unrelated - your input on my London/Hampstead starnom would be appreciated :) Cheers. --Burmesedays 04:55, 8 January 2010 (EST)
why did you erase my contribution to the Tenerife article? The link is to a really good map, that is hard to find. It provides Information where you can camp for free on beautiful public campgrounds with really nice scenery. There is no commercial interest. I stayed on a lot of these Zonas Recretivas during my holiday. --MoN24 14:12, 11 January 2010 (EST)
Hi Stefan. I took the view to leave the Bandas article alone and let the fella keep on adding! I can certainly sort it out when he has finished. We have so little content for this insanely OtbP region. Cheers. --Burmesedays 10:45, 12 January 2010 (EST)
Russian Federal Districts
I don't think the bureaucracy involved in these have any relevance for travelers, and I'm pretty sure that their "capitals" are just the places where the plenipotentiary envoys have their offices. It's not nearly as important as the distinction between any old city and a capital of a federal subject (like Chukotka AO or Primorsky Oblast), since I don't think they are employing many people. The envoys are there basically to just to be a watchdog on the far flung provincial governments, to prevent them acting like they are their own little countries, with mini-dictators. It takes a really large country to have that sort of problem, but Russia has it indeed. --Peter Talk 15:18, 12 January 2010 (EST)
Ok, I will wait with the regions of Kerala, if you have a suggestion I will be happy to do the details, ClausHansen 08:02, 15 January 2010 (EST)
Bali and Google
Thanks for that heads-up Stefan. I think (only think) you get a truer, raw Google ranking if you eliminate regional bias by going to google.com/ncr, and also make sure you are logged out of your Google account. On that basis, Bali is still 6th so I think it is a genuine result. Very pleasing. I did do a bit of back-link work, which will have helped a touch. Understanding the power of Google and its relation to WT does explain a few things. For example, we get loads of Nusa Lembongan business owners making edits here. This clearly explains why. We rank 2nd, higher even than Wikipedia. Cheers. --Burmesedays 20:32, 18 January 2010 (EST)
In the seoul page, the last part says: "Deokso — One of the towns outside of Seoul proper but connected on the subway. Home to the world's first commercially flown 747 which has been converted into a church." Actually I live in Korea and this plane is not a church but a restaurant. I had put a link for it as well..
Why have you locked me out from editing my listing? If you explained your reasons it might help. I edited on numerous occasions and can't see any difference between my listing and the others that are currently there?
Who gives you the right to do this anyway, your are a volunteer!
Hints? If you are an administrator you should be giving more than hints! I added pricing to my listing, hinted by another administrator, removed the "perfect" part form my listing that you hinted and only left basic information about the hotel. If you worked for Dublin County Council or the Irish Government I could see your point on trying to keep the Dublin page as correct as possible but your not even from Ireland!
Hi Stefan - Thanks for your feedback on our Wikitravel listing. A third party agency were dealing with this for us but the hotel are now managing this directly. If you could enable access so that we can put up information on our hotel that would be much appreciated. Following your policy guidelines and feedback I have amended our first posting to the following and would welcome any further feedback you might have. MHH
"Good value boutique hotel between Ballsbridge and Sandymount, next to the AVIVA Stadium. The hotel has 168 bedrooms, a Business Centre, 9 conference rooms, and the bar serves food all day. WiFi access and free secure parking are available. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms start from €59."
Hi again Stefan. Thanks for putting our listing up. It seems to be in two sections at the momement however, splurge and mid range. If you could just include us in mid-range that would be great. While I take your comments on board, if there is any chance you could remove the negative comments that would be much appreciated. MHH
Thanks Stefan - Have edited details that were for your info. Is it possible to delete the above info relating to the listing now that the issue is resolved? MHH
There is no rush, but I was wondering if you had finished the Kyoto map? I was just going to put the one that is currently on the talk page on the main page, but I noticed you said it is still being worked on. (I know you and others are working on the map expedition, so if it's not ready, please don't feel pressured to hurry up and finish it. I was just curious.) ChubbyWimbus 01:56, 25 January 2010 (EST)

Oh my, that over-stylized font with that blurry shadow over that ugly graphic hurts my eyes ;) Anyway, it translates:

Re: two isPartOfs for Russia—that's not breaking the breadcrumb trail for me. Breadcrumbs disappear now and then because of caching issues. Try refreshing your browser window and possibly purge the cache for both Russian and Europe? --Peter Talk 14:42, 5 February 2010 (EST)
Russian Far East maps
Firstly, great work! Secondly, since you are creating city maps throughout the area, I thought it wise to let you know that I have a half-completed map for Vladivostok, so that we don't duplicate work. I'll make a point of finishing that one sometime soon, and integrating content from the Russian version. --Peter Talk 21:12, 8 February 2010 (EST)
Hello there! I've noticed the messages you've left to his talk page. Actually, this user (also known as Ervin. C) has a long history of trolling and sockpuppetting on Romanian wikipedia, where he was banned. He just makes a couple of "contributions" like he has just made, then blatantly asks for adminship. He approached as Mr. Man on Romanian Wikitravel but I preferred not to have him lurk around. Then he came back as Ervin C. but after checking what he does (creating articles on minor cities at the same time on the Romanian and English wikitravel) I've decided to stop him from messing around further. Hope this helps! --Vlad 09:08, 11 February 2010 (EST)
Why did you delete the last entry I put about this restaurant in Guerrero Negro? Isn't this a free and open Wiki? Or is this a site dedicated to advertise only some of its business? I'm just trying to improve the entry for that place!
'ow do! Just doing an old Random Page trawl, and came across Huron-Kinloss, which you renamed from Ripley (Ontario). However, the text still refers to the place as Ripley. Is there a reason for this, or does the article require some work to reflect the new name? Nrms 10:05, 15 February 2010 (EST)
More on Khabarovsk Krai
The see/do/eat sections will probably best be filled with overviews of where to find what, in terms of main destinations and highlighting lesser known OtBP sights or activities, with links (this is pretty similar to what is needed in the main article of a huge city). The various subregions of Bali (e.g., Central Bali) or Capital Region (Maryland) give pretty good ideas of what a basic region article should look like, especially when the region isn't that distinct from surrounding regions, as is the case here.
For specifics, I can't help as much, as I really don't know much about the krai. The Nanai stuff looked interesting, if obscure. I'm guessing that most sections will likely say "go to Khabarovsk for X. But also check out..." Information about which заповедники (nature reserves) are possible to visit would be really cool, but I don't know how easy that information is to come by. In any rate, as the Bali and Maryland articles show, these sections don't need to be long at all to be effective. --Peter Talk 12:30, 19 February 2010 (EST)
In Canada, unlike the United Kingdom, metrification is practically complete in all spheres, if not by the older generations. Quebec has been already metrified for a very long time.
In Canada, unlike the United Kingdom, metrification is practically complete in all spheres, if not by the older generations. Quebec has been already metrified for a very long time. Virtually everything is given in the metric system, 100% of products ,distance, speed limit on the roads and temparatures.
In Canada in metrification is complete, your "information" that it is only half-way through is false. That is only the case in the United Kingdom.
An answer will be appreciated.
Then these Germans must be IDIOTS!!! They couldn't have been Austrians, and most certainly not Viennese, because both me, my entire family (except my grandfather, who can't speak German) and all my friends (and I've got many) would all agree that Scandinavian languages are a piece of cake to understand, especially spoken Swedish and spoken Norwegian (Bokmål is what I've heard), while the written languages are just slightly more diffiult, because there seems to be many words that are spelled differently in German but pronounced the same. And besides it is not true that Danish is easier than Swedish, at least not in spoken form, your pronunciation is very different. While this does not pose a major problem to me, Swedish is significantly easier. Basically, this is the "easiness order", with the easiest language first: Spoken Swedish, Spoken Norwegian Bokmål, Written Swedish, written Norwegian Bokmål, Written Danish, Spoken Danish. But I can still understand about 75 % of spoken Danish —The preceding comment was added by AndreasAndreas (talk • contribs)
Hi Stefan! I just saw that you reverted my changes in Freistadt. There is a coparight issue because the anon user copied the See text from a page that is not cc by sa conformative. I tried to start a rewrite but couldn't finish due to real life work constraints... LtPowers confirmed that we either have to delete the whole text or rewrite it. I don't have so much time today. So eithter delete it completely or rewrite. Regards, jan 03:06, 10 June 2010 (EDT)
