Looking for something?[edit]

I have moved old text from here to an archive page. --Jonboy 15:35, 25 January 2008 (EST)

Southern Maryland[edit]

Hi, I noticed you moved my two restaurant reviews from the southern Maryland section to a new Prince Frederick page. Two questions: 1) if restaurant reviews should be listed in specific towns why is there an "Eat" section in the regional article; and 2) One restaurant, Stoney's, isn't actually in or particularly near Prince Frederick, it's a good 15 miles away. The town it *is* in isn't even incorporated. - [email protected], 9 March 2009

Okay, got it. Broome's Island and Saint Leonard are both probably too small for their own listings, so Prince Frederick it is. BTW, when discussing things, is this how it's done? One person posts to the other person's talk page? - [email protected]


Hey, you suggested moving my Silver Spring photo off the site given the policy of people in pictures. I should like to note that it is me and my spouse presented in the picture. Given that information, I should have perhaps protected it under a different type of copyright and if it is appropriate for me to do so please let it be known.

Noticed that you took down my revisions of hostels in Paris. I visited the new St Christopher's Inns there and it's worth mentioning... Talk

Perhaps, but since Paris is a huge city, specific listings belong in the district articles. Jonboy 11:34, 28 February 2008 (EST)

Cool, that's probably worth it. I was speaking to the manager there who said it took 7 years to build! It's an amazing building. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Travelempire (talkcontribs)

DC districts[edit]

I am trying to reshuffle the DC districts a bit and I thought I would solicit your advice regarding a comprehensive districts proposal for DC. Thanks! --Peter Talk 15:12, 10 January 2008 (EST)

Maryland map[edit]

You mean Cecil County? I know next to nothing about that section of the state except for driving through it on I-95, so I'll defer to the office of tourism and move it to the Eastern Shore. I'm flirting with the idea of starting a Wikitravel:Project to make either Maryland or the Mid-Atlantic the site's first star-region, which will be tough work! The main challenge is making all linked destinations at least guide status. --Peter Talk 19:38, 6 March 2008 (EST)

Hey, I created a Wikitravel:Maryland Expedition and though you might be interested in joining. It'll be a long haul operation, but it would be great to get Maryland up to guide status—right now there isn't a single guide-level region article on Wikitravel! --Peter Talk 20:37, 9 March 2008 (EDT)
I was leaning towards declaring retrocession a fait accompli on Wikitravel, simply because I'm sick of having a hard time explaining where I'm from, having grown up 5 minutes across the DC border, but I suppose you're right. I also added our 9 cities to the region map—if you think it hurts the aesthetic, let me know (I haven't made up my mind). In any rate, I will be adding a destination map with all the cities, other destinations, and major roadways between them relatively soon. --Peter Talk 13:21, 14 March 2008 (EDT)

Admin nomination[edit]

Hey, I just nominated User:LtPowers for sysop status. I'd appreciate it if you would comment here. Thanks! --Peter Talk 19:02, 17 August 2008 (EDT)


Thanks for cleaning that up—sometimes when I see an unsorted hotel list on an undistricted large city page like that, I get kind of dejected about getting it in order. I agree strongly that Baltimore would benefit from districts. I've been meaning to try and create an easy to use neighborhoods map of the city—I'll try and get that done and then propose a scheme. --Peter Talk 21:56, 14 March 2009 (EDT)

Talk:Montgomery County (Maryland)[edit]

I tried to put together a Wikitravel style map for the county, which brought up a few questions in my mind. If you get a chance, please take a look at the discussion. Thanks! --Peter Talk 23:39, 18 March 2010 (EDT)

Beijing/Tongzhou is missing[edit]

Hi, I'm new here but I was told to report this to an admin. The page Beijing/Tongzhou is missing, even through you can look at the diffs here and you can find the info. I'm not sure what would cause this but I thought someone should know. -- 15:14, 17 October 2012 (EDT)

Thanks! In the future, you can report problems with the English site at The Pub and with the non-english sites at the Shared Pub. I'll have this one taken care of!--IBobi talk email 15:42, 17 October 2012 (EDT)

Your contributions[edit]

Hi Jonboy! I would love to see you on Wikitravel more often! As I mentioned before, your contributions are highly appreciated and very valuable for Wikitravel community! I would gladly give you back admin rights once I see you are more active over here. I think it makes sense. Warm regards, IBAlex 14:25, 23 January 2013 (EST)
