User page on es:
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... texugo 23:53, 17 January 2012 (EST)

hello ryan can you please explain why my listing was removed a while back. I originally listed it in 2009 and it stayed up there for a while for some reason it was removed. —The preceding comment was added by ManitiExpeditions (talk • contribs)
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? —The preceding comment was added by ManitiExpeditions (talk • contribs)
The images are not copyrighted and are obtained after an agreed release from a third party/ or personal shoot. Its only that I am building a resource for my city but you keep removing stuff. I have clearly seen and understood the upload warning
Hi Ryan, somehow the block of Craiqzkriz doesn't work. Do you have know why? Jc8136 04:16, 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. — D. Guillaime 19:34, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
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? Jc8136 11:27, 27 March 2012 (EDT)
Hello -- please fix what appears to be a typo in an IP block you made "20:27, 26 March 2012, Wrh2 (Talk | contribs) blocked 188.8.131.52/18 (Talk) (expires 20:27, 2 April 2012, anon. only, account creation blocked) (Repeated vandalism)" you have a slash where a period ought to be. Thank you,--IBobi 15:47, 29 March 2012 (EDT)

Stockholm Image Deletion
May I enquire as to why my image of the Stockholm rail map was removed and nominated by deletion?

KK to Brunei in a day Merge
Why did you request that Kota Kinabalu to Brunei in a day be merged with Malaysia? It refers to a specific route in a very specific part of Malaysia and does not make sense as a part of the overall country page. Per Wikitravel's guidelines on what qualifies as a page, this seems a proper itinerary.

Best Western Plus Siding 29 Lodge on the Banff page
Hi Ryan, thanks for the corrections on capitalization. I changed the hotel name back from "Best Western" to our legal name of "Best Western Plus Siding 29 Lodge". This is consistent with wiki policy as it is our actual legal name. Thanks --BanffABHotel 20:32, 17 April 2012 (EDT)
Holiday Inn Houston
Hi, just curious why you keep deleting the Holiday Inn Houston - Reliant Park listing. I am keeping the listing in line with the other hotels listed on that page, and don't mean to be doing anything against the rules. What do I need to do to list the hotel properly?
This website is the most useful for travellers in Indian railways. Why removing it? Yann 15:53, 24 April 2012 (EDT)
The Super Shredder
Over the past year or two, you have put in a tremendous effort towards cleaning up this site, in terms of getting rid of orphaned, /en hosted images of dubious origin and utility, outline itineraries and topics, devising new methods of getting rid of other dead weight, and generally streamlining our operations. Thanks! --Peter Talk 20:54, 25 April 2012 (EDT)
Hi Ryan, I am very unconvinced concerning this content introduced into the Bali article. I have edited the recent reinstatement of the content however I note it was previously removed and has returned, still with a touty emphasis. I have not seen the publication so it is difficult to assess the appropriateness of the content in a travellers context. I have left a note on Ikan's talk page as well as I know he has also been working on some corrective edits associated with Anand Ashram and Anand Ashram's previous contributions. I am also a little curious about Adisucipta and obviously the new contributions in the reading section of the Bali article raises the question of who Adisucipta and Anand Ashram are, and if indeed they are the same contributor. Both IK and I have left a note on Anand Ashram's talk page, doesn't seem to have had much effect though. I have also recently been editing Anand Ashram content in the Jakarta, Ubud and Bogor articles. -- felix 08:17, 9 May 2012 (EDT)
Hello! Could you please change my username from Zhouhana to Zhounana (replacing the h with an n)? Thanks in advance. User:Zhouhana, 02:01, 29 January 2012 (UTC+08:00)
Thanks Ryan. I just noticed the page as well! Not off to a great start. It seems the "Al Qal'a of Beni Hammad" site in Algeria has been incorrectly placed near Bechar in the west of the country, when it is meant to be in the north, according to official information: . Also, do you know how the information about heritage sites are meant to be presented? The Expedition mentions creating articles for each site, although the Wikitravel's policy is destination articles only. JamesA >talk 00:44, 29 May 2012 (EDT)
