Halong Bay is NOT CATBA ISLAND[edit]

Please try to keep this article free of Catba-isms. I have begun the process of transition by adding a list of islands in the understand section. Pratyeka 14:23, 29 February 2012 (EST)

Junk links[edit]

I removed the two junk links - the ones that keep luring our helpless spammer friend back into his ruinous ways. Anyone who's been to Hanoi knows that there are more Ha Long Bay travel agencies than people, cats, and pho joints combined, so it's not like they're an obscure thing and those are a traveler's only two options of getting the trip done. Moreover, the person who added those links didn't provide any kind of testimony or description about them, so there's no way to know why we're recommending those two over any others. Substantively, the only real difference between them and the spammer's link was that they didn't keep overwriting him. Gorilla Jones 10:22, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

There seems to be quite a few links to tour boats seeping into the main text and outside the listings --Hpka 00:00, 2 April 2009 (EDT)

The links to tours of Halong bay are all to the same website. Can we restore them to the original and include other companies? Once that is done, is it possible to lock it and only have the option of adding another?

I have restored all the listings that were replaced. No, we can not "lock" the listings as that's the nature of a wiki- users can actively edit, rewrite and change the content here. It's possible to protect the whole page but this means that users would be stopped from making any edit on the page. This happens very rarely for example when we have "edit war". I'll keep an eye on this page and make sure to delete junk URLs/ block the user who constantly inserts them. Thank you for your help! Cheers! IBAlex 13:14, 6 March 2013 (EST)
