I saw an article in the Guardian that I thought you might find interesting, especially since it kind of mixes two subjects that you and I share an interest in No religion and an end to war: how thinkers see the future. A quote: "Biologist Richard Dawkins said that physicists would give religion another problem: a theory of everything that would complete Albert Einstein's dream of unifying the fundamental laws of physics. "This final scientific enlightenment will deal an overdue death blow to religion and other juvenile superstitions."
This has perked my interest, mainly because I find it funny that this guy thinks his work will kill God. -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 09:38, 10 January 2007 (EST)
We've got a feature newly enabled on Wikitravel called Wikitravel:Recent changes patrol, which puts a little red exclamation mark next to lines on Recent Changes that haven't been reviewed by an admin yet. Admins can set their changes to be "auto-patrolled", so that other admins don't have to check them. To do this, go to Special:Preferences, on the "Edit" tab, and select "mark my changes as patrolled". Thanks, --evanp 10:06, 17 January 2007 (EST)

Hi Tim, First of all thanx a lot for your comments. You've made me feel a lot better, User:Jpatokal wrote some pretty harsh comments on my discussion page. I'd definitely like to write about Delhi (the article is in a bad state) and hopefully see it through to a guide, or even a star. But I think that Delhi should be split into a few divisions, it is currently the largest city in India (in area). I'd like your suggestions sice this is not going to be an easy task, Delhi is not officially divided into boroughs and terms like West and East Delhi sound pretty vague, even to a Delhiite. I was thinking along the following lines - 1. South Delhi 2. East Delhi (trans-Yamuna) 3. North Delhi 4. West Delhi 5. Central Delhi
That link to Shared is the result of Evan's OpenID/single sign-on work. I meant to make to my English account the "main" account that I use to sign-on to my accounts, but the instructions confused me.
Anyhow, if you have an account on the Swedish version of Wikitravel and use that as your main single sign-on account the link will direct you to your Swedish user page. Does that make sense? -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 14:27, 24 January 2007 (EST)
I can answer some of your questions. The merger/purchase of Wikitravel took place on April 20, 2006, so IB already owns the domain, servers, and Wikitravel name. The only thing were really waiting on is advertisements. -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 16:06, 25 January 2007 (EST)
The aggreement was mas over the phone, but my friend says that this airliners are used for baghdad, amman, tel-aviv and some other cities, he indicated that I can use it on travel guides or my brochures for those destinations. All I have is what I noted down from the phone conversation, is this sufficient? MiddleEastern 06:52, 3 February 2007 (EST)
The non-linking on the Ziarat page was deliberate (it's unlikely that those names are per the disambiguation and naming guidelines, and some may be duplicates) - if you've no objections, I think they should stay unlinked for now. ~ 184.108.40.206 19:33, 31 March 2007 (EDT)
Ops, Daklak is not a city, but a province. My bad. User:Guoyifan
Hey Tim, I spent about 4 days in Baku a couple years ago and barely scratched the surface of that long list of restaurants. But I was wondering, can we sort each price category by cuisine (e.g., Russian, Azeri, Georgian, International)? For me at least, that would make the list a lot more manageable. I'm sure this must have been discussed somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it. --Peterfitzgerald Talk 14:16, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
Tim, thanks for all of your work on the Baku page. I really hope that more people will come and start exploring Azerbaijan. As I am new to Azerbaijan, I do not know all of the sites in Baku, but I've added a couple more. Concerning the resturants, don't most of them already have prices on it? I will ask some Azeri friends for more information on things to do in Baku and then I'll post them up. I hope that you are doing well! Cupcakecommander 05:43, 30 May 2007 (EDT)
New search engine
Could you test the new search engine on review (http://wikitravel.org/review/Special:Search) and give your feedback on shared:Tech:Lucene search? It's the search tool that Wikipedia uses, and I think it's going to be a good upgrade for us. --Evan 12:45, 12 June 2007 (EDT)
You might want to relicense Image:Baku metro.png as GFDL, so it can be used on Wikipedia as well — big ol' meanie that I am, I've just VFD'd their copy of the old map as well. Great map though, is there an SVG version? Jpatokal 07:54, 14 June 2007 (EDT)
Sure I would guess something like: Westside/Speedway, Northside and Carmel, Southside and Greewood, Eastside, and Downtown. Those make the most sense to me. -Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 13:32, 14 August 2007 (EDT)
St. Johann in Tirol
Hi there, thanks for the comment on my edit of St.Johann. I'm fairly new to wikitravel and still learning the ropes. Have also put up lots of info on my home town of Cobh. Regards to all. Carrignafoy 05:37, 18 August 2007 (EDT)
Vienna Metro map SVG?
Hello Tim, thanx for your message on my discussion page of the french Wikipedia. I just looked for the SVC source of the map on my current computer, but didn't find it. I still have some hope on another machine, which I'll be able to check till next week. Could you please remind me again from Monday September 3rd? I'd be delighted if you could make an English version for WikiTravel from it; the very original source was not from me, but very old (initially on the German Wikipedia). So I updated it, but my version is now pretty outdated too ;-) too bad I didn't upload the svg file at the time. Hope to talk to you very soon; Witoki 28.8.07
splitting complex edits into several simple changes
Hi Tim. I'm watching through your recent edits in Barcelona. I must admit that it's bit difficult to see what exactly was changed when you combine many changes into a single version (like this and this). May I ask you to split your future changes into more versions, so it's easier to follow your idea? I really believe it can help us to work more effectively. --DenisYurkin 17:23, 11 September 2007 (EDT)
