Hello Giulio, I have one question. Yesterday I was working with Salta province on Wikitravel and had made very little changes in Cities section. I wrote only one sentence about the capital and resorted the cities. Finally, after the saving, I got result what not satisfy me. I was reverted 5 steps back instead of getting the progress. I did not put any actions for reverting! So, why happens such things? I would like to know the reason, because I noticed reverting process even earlier. Ryte 24 February 2021
Page needs renaming
Hi, sorry to bother you but I can't find any place to address this question. I don't want to have a page deleted, but there is one page for a national park in Japan that has been sitting as deadwood for many years now, most likely because the name of the park was changed almost 10 years ago. I have made some initial edits on Kirishima-Yaku_National_Park and I am willing to turn the whole thing into something worth reading. But before I commit several hours of my life to it, I don't want the time wasted on something nobody will ever read because they wouldn't look for something using an obsolete name. So how do we go about updating the name for a place? Also, if I may suggest, if you have a question in the FAQ on how to have a page deleted, perhaps it would be good to have a question on how a place is renamed? Thanks.

Hi again, I got the above taken care of without trouble, but please now tell me something for the following. I noticed someone made a page for the town of Misumi, but actually that town was absorbed into another city Uki about 16 (!!) years ago. How do I have the contents moved over, or to have the original page Misumi deleted? (Actually I am noticing some people have made a lot of these bare bones pages with virtually no content). Thanks.

Hi, thanks. OK I moved the info I can verify and added what I could; some of it was so poorly written and vague I can't tell what the first writer was referring to 15+ years ago. I can't make the redirect myself however - it says the page already exists which I know. Could you please delete the pages for Misumi as well as Shiranuhi so a redirect can be put in its place please? Thanks so much. The-observer (talk) 06:55, 9 March 2021 (EST)
What the way is quicker?
Hi Ryte, do you have a specific article in mind? Because you may just need to rename it, or merge two pages. Please check the article and let us know if you need more help. GiulioC (talk) 03:06, 8 March 2021 (EST)
Hello Giulio, I saw Madagascar needs changes, the island of 2000km long. 1.There is no more provinces in all. Look more here at the table. All administrative divisions became smaller by area. I think it would be OK to leave the same Wikitravel regions division. So, Antananarivo and the 2 more Provinces need renaming or redirection. 2. Antsiranana or Fianarantsoa opens as the region or city, everything is mixed. Ryte 8 March 2021
Hi... I noticed a lot of work was done for Kyoto making subpages since there is so much in the city. But on the main page nobody ever bothered to put up a regional list - there are just some links and it looks a lot less likely that anybody would ever find the detailed info, like you see on Tokyo. I think there are 5 areas - N,S,E,W, and Central - and those pages are already there and look pretty good. How about a regional list? It seems to require a map to show the divisions, which I don't really have the technical knowledge to create, but on the discussion page someone already made one years ago. Could that be used? Could you please give your input and set it up? Thanks. The-observer (talk) 16:45, 26 March 2021 (EDT)
That is, rolling back productive edits, creating duplicate articles by canceling the installation of redirects and provoking a war of edits is not vandalism? I recommend that you better understand the subject and roll back the malicious changes. 22.214.171.124 04:41, 11 April 2021 (EDT)
Hi, I have been adding some content to some cities, so now they look like someplace worth seeing. One thing I don't have however are some good pictures for banners for them, and the pages look a little inadequate without them. I don't know what resources you have access to, but if you could find some banners for Tara, Uto, and Uki it would be great. Also, from a previous trip, I tried to put in a banner for Hollywood but it won't go in. I am not sure what the trouble is. The uploaded photo went in fine - it is here. I never had this problem before. Can you please help fix the trouble? Thanks. The-observer (talk) 00:15, 29 April 2021 (EDT)
