Great work on Milan! As you no doubt noticed, the article is pretty lacking in info, so it's great to see you adding high quality content. Please keep it up! --Peter Talk 20:48, 1 June 2010 (EDT)

Hi! Thank you for working on Italy. Please refrain from long list (like name all the italian brands) as Wikitravel is not the yellow pages. We have a policy called Wikitravel:No_advice_from_Captain_Obvious so e.g. it is clear for everyone that Gucci and Prada are Italian. Keep up the work and please have a brief look on what i changed. jan 07:35, 3 June 2010 (EDT)
P.S.: I reduced the shop lists in Milan to be compliant with our Listings policy. H&M is so widespread (an others too) that we don't list them. Only italian brands you don't get outside Italy should be listed.jan 07:45, 3 June 2010 (EDT)


Since you have been doing such great work on Milan, I thought I might give you a couple ideas of how to really shape the article up into an exceptional travel guide.

Probably the most important task is going to be to create districts for the article. For good examples of districted cities, take a look at Kyoto#Districts, Copenhagen#Districts, Rome#Districts, etc. I don't know much about Milan, but it looks like the zonas might provide a good base for district boundaries? Maybe use Zona 1 for an article, then combine some of the outer zonas into Milan/North, Milan/West, etc. If you have any ideas on this matter, please propose them at Talk:Milan! My hunch is that, given the amount of content we currently have and the size of the city, that 5–8 districts might be a good starting point. Once the discussion gets going, it's fairly safe to assume that one of our mapmakers (perhaps me) will volunteer to draw up a districts map.

The next step after districting, would be to get the article up to guide status, which shouldn't be too hard for a knowledgeable writer such as yourself ;)

Anyways, I'll pitch in on the districts discussion if you get it started, and let me know if you have any questions! --Peter Talk 13:41, 11 June 2010 (EDT)
