==Joseph Stalin==
Hello there. I noticed that you were one of the other people reverting the edits that a certain [[User:Joseph Stalin|Joseph Stalin]] was making. I just wanted to inform you, since it seems you might be in better communication with the Wikitravel superiors (or maybe you're one of them), that I've seen this character before on another wiki. If you read [[User:Joseph Stalin|Joseph Stalin's]] user page, it says simply "Willy on Wheels." Well, over at [ WikiCars], we had a recurring problem with a user named Willy on Wheels, who kept moving pages to new names and making senseless edits in existing pages. I don't know how the powers that be might want to handle the situation, but I just thought someone should know that he's been a problem elsewhere as well. - [[User:RFujitani|Pastrami on Ry]] 19:56, 5 February 2007 (EST)
:Yeah, I wrote the text identifying him as Willy. See [[Wikitravel:How to handle unwanted edits]]. -- [[User:Cjensen|Colin]] 20:00, 5 February 2007 (EST)
::This Joseph Stalin (Willy on wheels) is making life hell. Can't you please bump him off the site - you are an administrator. [[User:Upamanyuwikitravel|Upamanyuwikitravel]] 09:35, 6 February 2007 (EST)
:Colin: Ah yes, I hadn't read the "How to handle..." page before I posted my message here. I've got a better understanding of the policies now. - [[User:RFujitani|Pastrami on Ry]] 14:18, 6 February 2007 (EST)
==Water temp==
I've resolved the issues you pointed out about the climate template. I've also moved the template to [[:Template:ClimateCelsius]]. I also created a [[:Template:ClimateFahrenheit]] for use in destinations that use the Fahrenheit system. I haven't yet, as of the writing of this comment, add a optional parameter for mean temperatures, but I will.
Also, all fields are now optional, so if the Water temp field is completely empty it will not display unless a value is entered. However, if you do enter data for any one value, but not for the rest of the values the row will appear. -- [[User:Sapphire|Sapphire]] 00:38, 16 February 2007 (EST)
:P.S. See [[Cincinnati#Climate]], though I haven't converted the figures back to Fahrenheit. -- [[User:Sapphire|Sapphire]] 00:39, 16 February 2007 (EST)
== Hotel bot ==
Hey, if you're going to rerun your hotel bot would you please provide the data on de: too? So far, I put the data in my namespace, but it'd be better if it was in your namespace on de:. -- [[User:Sapphire|Sapphire]] &bull; <small>([[User_talk:Sapphire|Talk]])</small> &bull; 00:55, 2 March 2007 (EST)
== Researching copyvios beyond Commons ==
I think I know that guy's story more or less, because myself I have vfd-ed many of his uploads while moving Poland-related stuff to [[shared:]]. But for Commons images, I only placed a vfd when there was a discrepancy between what was stated there and here (i.e. a GFDL image re-uploaded here as CC).
What I'm trying to say is that it's practical that there be a point beyond which the copyvio examination stops and, for me, Commons are such a point. In other words, if an image has existed in Commons over a prolonged period of time and the licence information is consistent, there is no point in googling anymore, because why should we trust any other web page more than Commons, where there are people who actively and constantly search for copyvios.
I understand you have a much broader experience with this, so it's only a side-note from me.

==You reverted on [[Palestinian Territories]]==
Hi, there was a red link that I fixed in the edits you reverted, I'm going to revert back, let me know if you have any objections --[[User:MiddleEastern|MiddleEastern]] 08:00, 11 March 2007 (EDT)
:Seems you beat me to it! --[[User:MiddleEastern|MiddleEastern]] 08:03, 11 March 2007 (EDT)
== Wikitravel ToC ==
Colin: I've made some additional changes to the Wikitravel ToC layout on review. If you get a chance, could you give me your feedback on it?
Thanks, --[[User:Evan|Evan]] 12:27, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
== That indian page spammer ==
I've probably reverted a hundred of his edits in the past day. Is there any way to block an IP range?

I just created a disambig page for [[Hampton]]. Your hotelmaker directs there in [[User:Cjensen/project/hotelmaker/Virginia|Virginia]] and [[User:Cjensen/project/hotelmaker/New Hampshire|New Hampshire]]. Should I change the name of the heading from '''Hampton or Hampton (New Hampshire)''' to just '''Hampton (New Hampshire)'''? Or will that mess something up? -- [[User:Fastestdogever|Fastestdogever]] 12:08, 14 April 2007 (EDT)
== Picture of a Norwegian police officer ==
Hi, thanks for the heads up. Go ahead and remove the image if you want to. [[User:Illustrator|Illustrator]]

== Split pages ==
Colin, you had some strong opinions about the plan to [[shared:tech:optionally split long guides into one page per section|tech:optionally split long guides into one page per section]]. Since I've got a new version of software on review: to do this, I'd love to get your feedback on the shared: tech page. --[[User:Evan|Evan]] 13:26, 10 July 2007 (EDT)
==New Mexico==
I dropped you an e-line. What's up? -- [[User:Bill-on-the-Hill|Bill-on-the-Hill]] 23:48, 18 August 2007 (EDT)
==[[Kissimmee]] edit==
No problemo at all. I really appreciate your style of taking the hard line (or maybe it's just knowing the rules). It's part of my reluctance at being an admin--I'm not at all confrontational, or maybe just don't want to get into it. I miss TVerBeek's patrolling, and I sure love it when you kick some butt. [[User:OldPine|OldPine]] 10:16, 18 September 2007 (EDT)
I know that wikitravel doesn't accept any urls to vacation rentals that don't have addresses but a lot of rental homes, condos etcetera have deals setup with vacation search engines so you have to sign up through them. What if we linked with general crossroads? or to a search query? Would htat be ok? [[User:Danalors|Danalors]] 16:44, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
I did make the text right, unfortunately another user repeatedly removed the fact about the city. How do you prove something is fact without citing a link? [[User:Jamesbrown|Jamesbrown]] 08:20, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
==[[Nazca]] tour op/agent==
You and I have both reverted this guy[], but I'm not sure on what basis. What leg are we standing on? I put his info up in full, so we may need to revert again, but I feel he should get an explanation and I don't find policy on this anywhere. We certainly allow tour operators don't we? Even though he's calling them travel agents, I'm not sure that's exactly what it is. On the other hand it's a slippery slope. -- [[User:OldPine|OldPine]] 08:01, 1 October 2007 (EDT)
:Agree it's no fun. My shiny buttons are all mucked up already. Sheesh. OK, so the Epoquehotels guys are just a booking agency from what I can see. I've found better primary links for a lot of the hotels and left a message on the IP address asking for an explanation, but gone none. At what point can I put these guys on the spam blacklist (or can I?) so I don't have to revert 25 edits every day?
:Hey, don't you think there should be a page just for admins to communicate about unwanted edits, who's doing what, etc? There was talk about a manual for admins. I guess I ought to go see if it got done. [[User:OldPine|OldPine]] 19:06, 1 October 2007 (EDT)
==[[Central Oregon Coast]]==
As far as I can tell, that's a valid region in the [[Oregon]] hierarchy, so our normal policy should be to de-graffiti it and populate, rather than delete the thing. I've done so over your deletion. Feh ... this vandalism problem is getting worse by the day ... -- [[User:Bill-on-the-Hill|Bill-on-the-Hill]] 23:22, 11 November 2007 (EST)
