Just out of curiosity, why did you create [[es:Benutzer:Wrh2]]? I figure it must have been a mistake? "Benutzer" is not a valid namespace on es:, and you already made [[es:Usuario:Wrh2]]... [[User:Texugo|texugo]] 23:53, 17 January 2012 (EST)

: [[:shared:Image policy#Other media]] and [[Wikitravel:External links#What not to link to]] provide some guidance on the subject, but the short answer is that links to audio guides and use of audio files is something that the Wikitravel community decided not to encourage. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 20:13, 20 January 2012 (EST)

Ryan I believe that one of my competitors had deleted my listing and then replaced my listing with their own (Amazon Expeditions). When I had made my original listing I was on top and I had not noticed that my listing had been deleted to quite a while after and while. Can you give me the authorization to put my listing back on top? or can you do this for me please? <small>—The [[Wikitravel:Using_talk_pages#Talk_page_formatting|preceding]] comment was added by [[User:ManitiExpeditions|ManitiExpeditions]] ([[User_talk:ManitiExpeditions|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/ManitiExpeditions|contribs]]) {{{2|}}}</small>

==Craiqzkriz==
 
  
Hi Ryan, somehow the block of Craiqzkriz doesn't work. Do you have know why? [[User:Jc8136|Jc8136]] 04:16, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
 
  
: What do you mean by "doesn't work"?  A blocked user won't be able to edit or move any pages, with the one exception of their own talk page.  If a blocked spambot spams its talk page multiple times I usually protect the talk page from further edits with a note indicating it was protected due to ongoing spam. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 10:57, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
 
  
== Infinite duration blocks ==
 
  
My concern with the policy for infinite blocks is that most administrators are not unchecking the "Automatically block the last IP address used by this user" option – and since most of the spambots are not on long-term fixed connections, that's effectively putting in an infinite block on whatever unfortunate innocent user might get that address in the future.  I've certainly set anonymous IP address blocks where a review of the edit history shows a spammer/vandal in 2012, but then a few legitimate contributions to something utterly unrelated in 2008, and I would prefer to avoid blocking legitimate would-be contributors when that order is reversed.
 
  
Since temporarily blocking a spammer's address ''is'' genuinely useful, and since I've seen very few spambot accounts come back for more later (only the ones that try recreating their User_talk: pages, I think), a generic three-month block with the IP address blocking turned on seems like a good compromise.  Infinite blocks, to me, are only ever a valid option with "block last IP" turned off. — [[User:Dguillaime|D.

==[[User_talk:212.121.219.1]]==
 
Hi Ryan, i have seen your comments above and was thinking about to start the empty skeletons. It's an UK IP address with someone trying to reshape our Pakistan structure. Shall we block him for one day to get his attention and start the cleaning process? [[User:Jc8136|Jc8136]] 11:27, 27 March 2012 (EDT)
 
  
: I've tried 10 minutes blocks during times that he/she was editing with a pointer to [[User talk:212.121.219.1]] without any result.  It seems like either the user is ignoring the talk page messages or isn't comfortable with English, and if that's the case then I'm not sure if a longer block would help. I'm stumped on what to do here - the user has obviously put in some effort, but that effort is just creating additional work for everyone else who contributes to this site.  If you've got additional ideas they would be appreciated! -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 11:39, 27 March 2012 (EDT)

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...)
:: I worked over Pakistan articles and edits for the last couple years (see the talk page of the main article and the Stay safe issues...) Usually its guys in the UK or Pakistan trying to improve and don't understand our policy. Usually a longer block with a clear message/link helped to engage. Nevertheless we need to start the clean-up, otherwise inexperienced user start to use the newly created articles and then it gets messy! [[User:Jc8136|Jc8136]] 11:48, 27 March 2012 (EDT)

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...)

Why did you request that [[Kota Kinabalu to Brunei in a day]] be merged with [[Malaysia]]?
