Some knowledgeable person should check the Stay Safe section. I don't mean for the bad spelling and poor English so much as the accuracy - are the trains really that unsafe at night or even to be avoided between 9am and 5pm! [[User:Nurg|Nurg]] 21:34, 17 April 2006 (EDT)

Talk:Melbourne/Archive 1

Article Division and Downsize

As per Hypatia's observations of a year ago, it is - IMHO - time to start revising the main article, dividing and devolving the Melbourne article into its various relevant districts... For a big city, it is amazing that it has survived so long in this form (mind you, Chicago seems to exhibit the same phenomenon).... The See section of the main article, for example, has grown quite large and unwieldy - definitely time to identify the highlights of Melbourne's attractions, summarise them, and send the detail to the district pages. Being a native Sydneysider, I don't want to presume too much regarding the city's regions, so maybe several Melburnians can get the ball rolling? Paul James Cowie 03:10, 13 Nov 2005 (EST)

So, I just ignored my better judgement and - Sydney-Melbourne rivalry notwithstanding (!) - I've just included a proposed division of Melbourne into districts, as based on the official tourism web site's take on the matter..... Let's see if we can now start devolving some of the content from the main article out into the districts.... Paul James Cowie 04:05, 13 Nov 2005 (EST)
