When I edit, I don't see a 'This is a minor edit' checkbox. Is that a browser incompatibility (I'm using IE5) or is that some recent software change or something?

It should be right under the edit textarea. Are you sure it's not there? This is the first I've heard of it, and there's lots of people using IE5. --Evan 16:07, 21 Dec 2003 (PST)
You need to Login for this to work. Since January, anonymous users have not had the option of marking an edit as minor. See Erik Moeller's post on Wikitech-l for the details. Angela 19:08, Dec 21, 2003 (PST)

Edit text appended to name of town[edit]

Archived from the Pub:

Cannes France has a paragraph of text that belongs in the opening "understand" but it seems to be appended to the town name and has no "edit" function with it. Its real messy and does not follow the required style. How can I get rid of it? Very Newbie but trying!

At the very top of the page, just above the "Cannes" title, there are a series of tabs. The one marked "edit" will allow you to edit the entire contents of an article, inclduing the messed up text.
The inline edit will do individual sections if you only need to change a small section. If you are doing wholesale changes to many sections, it is easier to use the edit tab at the top and do all the edits at once rather doing individual sections.

Brilliant! So obvious with hindsight - thanks! (Andrew 13:44, 11 October 2008 (EDT))

Minimum listing?[edit]

Archived from the Pub:

Is there a minimum of information required for a hotel, restaurant, or other listing? If a hotel listing has only the hotel name, or only the name and a web site, should it be removed? I see a lot of these. The listing policy doesn't seem entirely clear on this: it suggests what information should be there, but it doesn't say what minimum is required, that I could see. Personally, I think a listing with only a name or only a name and link should be removed; it's not much use in a print-out. Sailsetter 18:58, 2 December 2008 (EST)

But someone might come along and expand it later. I would say leave it, in anything below a guide article. Once the article is already a guide, any additional entries should then be high quality, I would say. --Inas 19:29, 2 December 2008 (EST)
Even just the name and contact info (web site, phone, e-mail) of a hotel can be useful if you're trying to arrange lodging in advance. Alingelb 04:22, 10 December 2008 (EST)
Yes, but some don't even have that. Sailsetter 09:57, 10 December 2008 (EST)
There are occasions when minimum listings are work in progress for a User, it would be disappointing if the User returned to find their work in progress missing. Brianeric 15:01, 13 February 2009 (EST)
