Thailand map[edit]

Please fill in the Map template next time you sent in a new map. See my changes in your Thailand maps. By the way, do you speak Dutch? --Rein N. 04:57, 15 December 2009 (EST)

South Holland/Zuid Holland[edit]

There is in the USA a place called South Holland IL, so I used the Dutch name Zuid Holland for this province, it was the shortest name that came in mind, South Holland (province) or South Holland (Netherlands) will be linked as [[South Holland (province)|South Holland]]'' or ''[[South Holland (Netherlands)|South Holland]]. More overhead.--Rein N. 01:12, 21 December 2009 (EST)

Map attribution[edit]

Hi there (and welcome to the en admin club by the way :)). I have taken it upon myself to try to make sure all of our Wikitravel maps are correctly marked up. It would be good if you could go through yours and edit the template mark up as necessary. Eg any city or district maps using OSM should really link to OpenStreetMap and not just state the fact. For country maps, whilst it is legally OK to say "..based on Public Domain blah blah blah", to remove any possible questions, it is best to link to the source image(s). Here are a few examples of what I think are well marked-up templates (selection is kind of random).

PNG markup:

  • {{Imagecredit|credit=[[user:burmesedays]], [ UN Map of Uganda], [ UN Map of Tanzania]|captureDate=March 15th 2010|location=Uganda|source=[[:image:Uganda Regions map.svg]]|caption=Map of Uganda|description=Map of Uganda}}{{Map|Uganda}}
  • {{Imagecredit|credit=Peter Fitzgerald|captureDate=30 April 2009|location=Kazakhstan|source=[[:Image:Kazakhstan regions map.svg]]|caption=Kazakhstan regions map|description=English version}}{{map|Kazakhstan}}
  • {{Imagecredit|credit=Peter Fitzgerald, OpenStreetMap []|captureDate=6 January 2010|location=London|source=[[:Image:London Soho district map.svg]]|caption=London Soho district map|description=SVG}}{{Map|London}}

SVG markup:

  • {{Imagecredit|credit=Peter Fitzgerald|captureDate=3 February 2009|location=Kazakhstan|source=PD CIA maps: [], []|caption=Kazakhstan regions map|description=SVG}}{{map|Kazakhstan}}
  • {{Imagecredit|credit=[[user:burmesedays]], [ UN Map of Uganda], [ UN Map of Tanzania]|captureDate=March 15th 2010|location=Uganda|source=[ UN Map of Uganda], [ UN Map of Tanzania], PD imagery|caption=Map of Uganda|description=SVG}}{{Map|Uganda}}
  • {{Imagecredit|credit=Peter Fitzgerald, OpenStreetMap []|captureDate=6 January 2010|location=London|source=OpenStreetMap|caption=London Soho district map|description=SVG}}{{Map|London}}

Thanks very much!--Burmesedays 22:28, 28 March 2010 (EDT)

Image:DSC08939 copy.JPG[edit]

Hi, GT. I noticed you uploaded Image:DSC08939 copy.jpg as a separate file instead of uploading it over top of Image:DSC08939 copy.JPG (sadly, case matters). If you don't want the "bad" image, I suggest deleting it so it doesn't clutter the category. =) LtPowers 09:23, 20 May 2010 (EDT)

I actually wanted to upload it on top of it, but I made a mistake (because of the capital letters extention). If you have the rights, please delete the older one. --Globe-trotter 07:26, 25 May 2010 (EDT)
I do, but you should too. LtPowers 08:54, 25 May 2010 (EDT)

Image:Central Pinklao.jpg[edit]

Hi, G-t. You marked Image:Central Pinklao.jpg as "Own work" but credited someone on Commons. Is that your username on Commons? LtPowers 09:23, 17 June 2010 (EDT)

Ah, I've changed it. I meant its the own work of user Ahoerstemeier. Now I read it you're right that it sounds very unclear this way, so I just put the URL as source. --Globe-trotter 08:31, 21 June 2010 (EDT)
Yep, that's the way to do it. =) Thanks! LtPowers 16:25, 22 June 2010 (EDT)

Middle-East Map and Turkey[edit]

Turkey also exists at European section, should be removed from Middle Eastern image. Turkey, with too many associations with Europe should be classified as in Europe. Unsigned comment by Nitrium (talkcontribs) .

This has been dealt with in the discussion here. --globe-trotter 11:25, 12 July 2012 (EDT)
