===November 2008===
 
 
* [[Tripoli]] [[User:Tarr3n|Tarr3n]] 09:00, 5 September 2008 (EDT)
 
** Some good stuff in this article - I want to go there just on the basis of the description of the airport!
 
** '''Eat''', '''Drink''' and '''Sleep''' could all do with a lot more info. Drink in particular - fair enough alcohol is forbidden, but what about tea shops or coffee bars?
 
** '''Buy''' - ''There are no big brand shops present in Triopli just yet'' - brilliant! Tell me more about what is there. I want to go before Zara, H&M and Tesco take over.
 
** '''Contact''' and '''Cope''' are blank at the moment.
 
** There must be more to '''See''' and '''Do'''. What about those ''multiple sites of archaeological significance'' mentioned in '''Understand'''?
 
** Some more pictures? A map?
 
 
 
* [[Ko Lanta]]. Reasonably good, popular northern summer destination in Thailand:
 
** Needs a MoS clean up.
 
** Needs the addition of cheaper, backpacker budget accommodation, almost everything there is mid range or luxury.
 
** Needs better coverage of Lanta Old Town
 
** Needs better coverage non-diving activities; there are, I believe, snorkeling tours and kayaking and so on being left out, plus elephant rides
 
** Could use a map showing the various beaches at least on the western side where the resorts are.
 
[[User:Hypatia|Hypatia]] 23:52, 4 October 2007 (EDT)
 
 
 
*[[Buffalo National River]]
 
**Under Get in, change the map from an external link into an embedded image.
 
**Expand the Eat and Drink sections.
 
 
 
===October 2008===
 
 
*[[Antarctica]] —
 
===Why===
 
it's odd to nominate a continent, but this collection of articles really doesn't need that much to go from usable --> guide (and thus becoming both our first guide-level region & continent!) It would also be a really fun destination to collaborate on, I think.
 
**Remove unnecessary sections
 
**Research (research is mostly what's needed)
 
**More information about "get around," i.e., what sorts of transportation are feasible, how much it costs to get equipment, and what sort of level of physical fitness one needs
 
**More information re: specialty tours throughout the continent
 
**Penguin photos (preferably ones where researchers have mischievously dressed them up with top hats, scarves, & Santa beards) (I'm not joking)
 
**Need to create a basic [[South Shetland Islands]] page
 
**Come up with basic descriptions for non-article subregions (like Victoria Land, etc.)

* [[São Paulo]]
 
===Why===
 
lots of information, listings
 
**Some bits of info are in the wrong place
 
**Districts need rethinking and then listings need to be placed in them
 
**Needs a map and some photos

* [[Zaqatala]] city - located in the Sheki region of Azerbaijan, with friendly, open, and liberal people:
 
===Why===
 
** The page need's a MoS clean up
 
** The get out section should have more ideas for possible options for trips after Zaqatala
 
** The page would benefit from the creation of foreign language pages
 
** There is hiking in Zaqatala, but nothing writen about it
 
** Fill out the Sheki area in Azerbaijan!  [[User:Cupcakecommander|Cupcakecommander]] 02:42, 21 May 2008 (EDT)

* '''[[Beijing]]''' ([[Asia]])
 
 
===Why===
 
 
** it's the Olympic City come August 8th.  Wikitravel's page should be up-to-date and helpful!
 
** There's a lot of recent public transportation infrastructure that's been added and should be explained.
 
** The Beijing 2008 Olympic page sucks ([http://wikitravel.org/en/Beijing_2008]) and needs reworking.
 
** MoS clean-up.
 
** Restaurants should be ordered in a more meaningful way.
 
** List of things to Do seems very small for a city with >15m residents.
 
** Get Out list should be longer to suggest daytrips away from the city.
 
** If the sights could be grouped by location that might help planning visits. --[[User:Juliansuddaby|Julian Suddaby]] 06:11, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

===Why===

===6 August - 13 August===
 
*[[Edmonton]]
 
**A ton of great information that's strong in ways a lot of articles are weak (especially a terrific range of restaurants), but the sections aren't MoS and it's a bit disorganized. Listings are almost all incomplete. Could be a strong guide with some help. [[User:Gorilla Jones|Gorilla Jones]] 20:05, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
 
 
 
===26 June - 2 July===
 
*[[Kathmandu]]
 
**A major stop for travelers in South Asia. Currently, the article has lots of info, even a map, but needs some effort to tighten and pull it into shape. [[User:WindHorse|WindHorse]] 23:39, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
 
 
===7 May - 25 June===
 
*[[Harbin]]
 
===Why===
 
**A good article that has been nominated for Destination of the month. To meet the criteria it needs a general work over. [[User:WindHorse|WindHorse]] 12:15, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

===30 April  - 6 May===
 
* [[Khachmaz]]
 
====Why====
 
* A great deal of information, nice history section, and a expansive transportation section but:
 
** The page need. s a MoS clean up.
 
** The get out section should have more ideas for possible options post-Khachmaz(e.g. going to Russia, exploring Guba, sanatoriums in Nabron, etc.)
 
** The page would benefit from the creation of foreign language pages
 
** More information on Lesgi culture should be included
 
** Needs more photos
 
** Fill out the Northeast area in Azerbaijan!

===23 April  - 29 April===
 
 
* [[Boston]]
 
====Why====
 
** Major tourist destination in the USA (18 million in 2007 according to [http://www.wbur.org/news/2007/69414_20070808.asp this article])
 
** Only one photograph of the city, and no street map
 
** District pages are very uneven; some are pretty decent, while others are just stubs
 
** Many entries in See, Do, Buy, and Eat sections that should be moved to their respective district pages
 
** Includes attractions in the neighboring town of [[Cambridge_(Massachusetts)|Cambridge]]; these all need to be moved to the Cambridge page
 
** Get in and Get around sections need cleanup: the information there is good, but needs to be condensed, as these sections are too wordy right now
 
** No mention of discount programs available to tourists like the [http://www.gobostoncard.com/?engine=boscvbmap Go Boston Card] and the [http://www.citypass.com/city/boston/next.html Boston CityPass]
 
** May want to add a Respect section, e.g. mocking the Boston accent is not a good idea, nor is referring to Boston as a racist city based on events from 30 years ago &ndash; [[User:Jimby|Jimby]] 23:39, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

*[[Berne]] -- -- [[User:Tsandell|Tim]] <small>([[User_talk:Tsandell|writeme!]])</small> 14:54, 1 July 2007 (EDT)
 
====Why====
 
**One of 8 host cities for [[Euro 2008]] in June/July 2008 - need to get into tip top shape by then.
 
**Convert to listings, to get a uniform style.
 
**Need addresses, phone numbers and websites (if poss) for drink section.
 
**Need more sleep listings
 
**Need some info in cope and contact
 
**Put details of destinations in get out and rough travel times to them.
 
**Find some more photos

**Convert to listings, in order to get the guide to fit the MoS.
 
**Stay safe section could do with main points being boldened.
 
**A map would be really useful.

*[[Innsbruck]] -- -- [[User:Tsandell|Tim]] <small>([[User_talk:Tsandell|writeme!]])</small> 14:54, 1 July 2007 (EDT)
 
====Why====
 
**One of 8 host cities for [[Euro 2008]] in June/July 2008 - need to get into tip top shape by then.
 
**Get in and get around could do with more info.
 
**Need some listings in the eat and drink, and more in the sleep (currently there is one campsite.)
 
**There seems to be more info in [[de:Innsbruck]] - it might be the same, but if not we can add it to the english guide.
 
**Convert to listings, which will fix MoS problems.
 
**Put more info in get out
 
**A map would be great, as would a few more descriptive photos of the city.
 
**Basic information about the town would be useful for those of us who like to know a tiny bit about the town before we visit it, i.e. what's so special about Innsbruck in the first place? The fact that it's the fifth largest city in Austria doesn't make me want to visit!

===19 March  - 01 April===
 
* [[Euro 2008]]
 
====Why====
 
* The high-level travel topic for Euro 2008 could use help too.  It's currently written from a Swiss point of view and needs Austrian info to provide balance, mainly in the following sections: Get in, Get around, Buy, Do, Stay safe, Get out.

* [[Disneyland Paris]]
 
**This article is currently usable. I think with the addition of maps and pictures it could be pushed up to guide or star.
 
**Make it flow with the layout of the [[Disneyland]] and [[Walt Disney World]] articles.
 
**We need a picture of the Walt Disney Studio Park.
 
**Three maps: the entire Disneyland Paris Resort, Disneyland Park, and Walt Disney Studios.
 
**Make the See and Do lists more diverse, and emphasize that there are two parks.
 
**Most importantly, make it a guide article, if not star.

* [[Walt Disney World]]
 
 
====Why====
 
**This article is currently usable. I think with the addition of maps and pictures it could be pushed up to guide or star.
 
**Four maps, one for each of the theme parks.
 
**A map of the Orlando area showing the location of WDW.
 
**A map of the entire WDW resort.
 
**Pictures of the theme parks.
 
**Under "About The Park": The "Magic Kingdom" subsection has two sub-subsections ("Wheelchairs and strollers" and "Restrooms") that don't tie in right. They should be moved to more appropriate subsections.
 
**Most importantly, push it up at least to guide, if not star.

*[[Disneyland]]
 
 
====Why====
 
**This article is currently usable. I think with the addition of maps and pictures it could be pushed up to guide or star.
 
**We need four maps: One of the entire resort, one of Disneyland, one of California Adventure, and one of Downtown Disney.
 
**Also, at least three pictures. My picks: Sleeping Beauty's Castle and the Main Street train station in Disneyland, the California Screamin' roller coaster and the Golden Gate Bridge in California Adventure, and the monorail.
 
**Under "Sleep": change the map from an external link to an embedded image.
 
**Most importantly, upgrade it to guide, if not star.

====Why====
 
**One of 8 host cities for [[Euro 2008]] in June/July 2008 - need to get into tip top shape by then.
 
**More info needed in Get in/by car & by bus.
 
**Get around needs splitting into more subsections, ie by bus, by tram etc rather than just by public transport.
 
**The whole guide needs converting to listings
 
**The see, do, eat and drink sections need phone numbers, addresses, websites
 
**Need more photos and a map.
