Star article[edit]

I think that this article is very close to or meets the criteria for a star article status, so here's a place to comment about that. A couple of very minor suggestions for improvement:

  1. Re-format the lodge under the "Sleep" section according to Wikitravel:Accommodation listings. Since it's the only accommodation on the island and having only one bullet point might look weird it could be considered as an exception to the rule, but if so note the reason on the talk page. Ditto for the food options under "Eat" and the ferry options under "Get in".
  2. Move the map closer to the top of the article - it's a very valuable piece of info that might be best if highlighted sooner.
  3. Until we actually have an article on "leave-no-trace-camping" it might be better to leave that as a non-link.

Amazing work! -- Ryan 18:09, 21 March 2006 (EST)

Thanks! Far be it from me to argue with a classification upgrade... glad you like it.

  1. I see the entries under Sleep and Eat as dog-walking-on-two-legs items: It's remarkable to see them there at all, let alone formatted according to MoS. {grin} I'll see what I can do with them.
  2. The map would work OK in the Landscape section, I suppose. Which draws my attention to the fact that I need to add a distance scale to it....
  3. I'm about to start work on leave-no-trace camping, actually. It's my own personal "Get out" from this page, and that's why I linked it.

Thanks for the changes. I'd not be opposed to upgrading this to "star" now, although you may want to wait a couple of days to see if anyone else has any feedback. Great job. -- Ryan 22:46, 21 March 2006 (EST)

We're putting together a process for evaluating "star" articles, so I've listed this at Wikitravel:Star nominations. - Todd VerBeek

Previous unilaterally-applied Star, going for confirmation. Anything that's missing from the article is probably also missing from the destination. :) - Todd VerBeek 10:45, 15 May 2006 (EDT)

  • Support. Great article. -- Ryan 13:11, 21 June 2006 (EDT)
  • Comment: I was wrong about my "anything missing from the article" remark above; I just got back from 10 days hiking from one end of IR to other, and I have stuff to add. :) - Todd VerBeek 18:03, 27 June 2006 (EDT)
