:Over a year later, I still see this city as consisting of neighborhoods and not of huge districts that are of interest for the traveler.  I feel like some of the districts could be deleted, if not all of them.  [[User:THE evil fluffyface|THE evil fluffyface]] 10:12, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

::Well, keep in mind the problem of making the article useful, and one of the components of that is making sure it's of manageable size.  Yes, progress on giving Miami the treatment it deserves has been frustratingly slow, but I'm pretty sure that if all the attractions of this huge city were well treated, the resulting single article would be impractically large, and that's why districts are used.  The entire [http://wikitravel.org/en/Wikitravel:Huge_city_article_template#Districts point] of districts as sub-pages under a huge-city article is to allow a sensible and comprehensive treatment of neighborhoods without the root article getting too large.  The root article then includes language that points the reader at the right district to find the neighborhood.  Not all district articles need to be treated at great length; if there aren't any museums, night clubs, etc., in a district, just say so. -- [[User:Bill-on-the-Hill|Bill-on-the-Hill]] 11:19, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

:::I agree wholeheartedly with Bill on this. It can initially be difficult to move things out to the proper districts (and then to patrol out everyone wanting to put listings to the city), but it ends up being much better for the reader by making it more readable, better organized, and a better overview of the area as a whole.[[User:OldPine|OldPine]] 12:57, 22 September 2007 (EDT)
 
 
Don't know if it helps your problem much, but I edited the introduction to make a distinction between Miami and the Miami Metropolitan Area(Gold Coast or South FLorida). Could someone expand the article "Florida Gold Coast"????? [[User:AHeneen|AHeneen]] 18:07, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
 
 
::I re-edited your contributions. The problem we have, common to all large cities, is that everyone wants their business listed in the city rather than in whatever suburb or city district they are really located. Some contributors also have the philosophy that suburban attractions should be covered in the big city article. It's not so much a misunderstanding of the metro area as it is these forces working, IMHO. [[User:OldPine|OldPine]] 19:25, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

: Congratulations, you succeeded.  What would you like to talk about? [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 11:07, 9 May 2008 (EDT)
 
 
==Talk==
 
 
The writing in the talk section seems to be a bit condescending to the locals that don't speak English. What is the vibe towards non English speakers in Miami? Is this true, or can it be rewritten in a better tone?
 
 
Thanks. --[[User:MarinaK|MarinaK]] 14:33, 13 June 2008 (EDT)MarinaK.
 
:I think the talk section is great in that addresses the issue of non-English speakers. It is true that most (at least 80% or so) speak English even if it isn't their native tongue. Because of the large numbers of people who do not speak English, there is not a negative vibe towards them. Could you explain why you think it should be rewritten in a better tone?

== Images aren't working ==
 
Hi. Several of the images in the Miami article aren't appearing. I've tried to fix them- i.e put _ where there are spaces, but it doesn't work. Can someone please fix them?  --[[User:MarinaK|MarinaK]] 14:43, 1 October 2008 (EDT)MarinaK.
 
: This is a technical problem. See "Thumbnail shows up as gray box" at [[:shared:Wikitravel Shared:Travellers' pub]] -- [[User:Sergey kudryavtsev|Sergey kudryavtsev]] 15:22, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
 
::Thanks Sergey. I've posted my problem over at Wikitravel/Shared. --[[User:MarinaK|MarinaK]] 15:27, 6 October 2008 (EDT)MarinaK.
 
 
== Deletion ==
 
 
Hi. I deleted the following review as the restaurant has now closed- *'''Wolfie Cohen’s Rascal House''', 190 Collins Ave, ''+1 305'' 947-4581 [http://www.rascalhouse.com/rascal_home.html] – Sun-Thu 6:30AM-1AM, Fri-Sat 6:30AM-2AM. Rascal House is now a thing of the past. Closed March 2008. Jewish deli food. A Miami institution since 1954, Wolfie’s used to serve the Rat Pack after performances. It’s still beloved today because of its retroactive vibe. $8-$30 per person, per meal.  Thanks. --[[User:MarinaK|MarinaK]] 14:49, 6 October 2008 (EDT)MarinaK.
 
 
 
== Districts and classification ==
 
 
I want to see if I can get some consensus on how to classify Miami Beach: should we consider it a part of Miami, since most travelers won't care about the legal distinction, or not? I submit to you the South Beach article, which is currently classified as Miami/South Beach. Yet Miami Beach and North Miami Beach are its own separate articles. So, I would propose that Miami Beach be classified as Miami/Miami Beach, or we change South Beach to Miami Beach/South.
 
 
In addition, Downtown Miami is also its own article, when it should probably be renamed to Miami/Downtown. (EDIT: OK I just did it, seeing as how someone else on the Downtown talk page asked the same question.) [[User:Psychofish|psychofish]] 09:59, 18 June 2010 (EDT)
 
 
:I think they should obviously just be seen as Miami. To avoid confusion, I created [[Miami/North Beach]] and [[Miami/Mid Beach]] articles, but they can be changed if necessary. Now it's important we get a full and detailed district scheme worked out and get it in place. --[[User:Globe-trotter|globe-trotter]] 13:34, 19 June 2010 (EDT)
 
 
::Hmm, many articles were already created elsewhere and this led to confusion. Pending this discussion, for now I have moved all the Miami Beach areas to [[Miami Beach]], including the districts. --[[User:Globe-trotter|globe-trotter]] 03:45, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
