So, talk pages can really benefit from having the table of contents going, especially for long and disparate arguments.

I'd like to suggest using a section header:

==These are two cities==

These are actually two cities. --Somebody

    No they're not. --SomebodyElse

         Yes they are. --Somebody

to separate this stuff out, instead of the four-dash horizontal rules. This is also how the "Post a comment" feature works, so it'd be nice to be synched up. Any objections? --Evan 14:35, 21 Dec 2003 (PST)

RSS

I am a newer to wikitravel. I like the style of WikiTravel. I know that Wiki is a part of so-called web 2.0. Therefore, I am not sure that whether I can read any new item in wikiTravel through RSS viewer. If yes, what is RSS URL for wikiTravel. Thanks!

You can find the RSS for changes to Wikitravel here: http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Special:Recentchanges&feed=rss

A Free Overnight Option From Tokyo to Sapporo for Japan Rail Pass Holders

sorry I am new too. I read wiki about Sapporo and need to know this free overnight option because I plan to visit Sapporo in July. Would somebody explain to me how to get there "free overnight" from Tokyo to Sapporo in detail by using Japan Rail Pass? I got the timetable from Iko's place website, two express trains only run until midnight. Thaks for your help.

avatars/userpics for easier scanning?

I wonder why we haven't implement placing avatars (small pictures) next to user's comment in talk pages--similar to Livejournal's comments page: [1], or http://wow(dot)ya(dot)ru: http://anatolix(dot)ya(dot)ru/replies.xml?item_no=2072&parent_id=2101&with_parent=1#reply-Anatolix-2101. I believe it can make pages read much easier. Personally it takes extra effort to distinguish which phrase belong to which person, and where one comment ends and another starts.

It could look something like this: (assuming there's photos or user-chosen avatars instead of these pics--and of course we should allow only square, equal-sized images)

I think we can implement it with a template call like {{user|DenisYurkin}} which can be invoked as a default signature. --DenisYurkin 04:23, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
