I have not retired

I had very little time in the last weeks, because my girl-friend moves to Brasil on Sept, 16th. But I'll return ;-). Anyone in Munich for Octoberfest?

Welcome back! -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 11:42, 4 September 2006 (EDT)


Welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a sec to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. Scanning the Manual of style, especially the article templates, can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub. -- Sapphire 07:45, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

I would also like to suggest if you have any images of Englischer Garten it would be appreciated if you could place that image in Munich/Schwabing. Also could you help place this list of discos on the Munich Main Page into the appopriate districts? Thanks! Sapphire 07:45, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

Hello Sapphire! I have lots of pictures of Englischer Garten and other places in Munich and I will place them here as soon as I will find them ;-). And I will sort the discos and maybe add some comments... If You have "Munich" and the related articles on Your watchlist I would be very glad if You could have a look every time I change something and correct my mistakes. (Maybe a good way to improve my English :-))) ). --Flip666 08:03, 7 April 2006 (EDT)
I'll keep an eye out, but it seems like you're doing a great job! Sapphire 08:39, 7 April 2006 (EDT)


Munich/Haidhausen is now an article. Please plunge forward. Sapphire 10:00, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

Bavarian this and that

Hi Flipp666! Greatt start with your contributions! I just wanted to maybe talk about the Bavarian food and Bavarian beer articles you've started or are starting. I really think they would be better of as part of the Bavaria guide rather than off on their own. If someone prints out the Bavaria guide to take on a trip, they'll miss out on all that great information! What do you think? Majnoona 15:43, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

Hello Majnoona! Thanks for the compliments! I did not start Bavarian food (I personally do not think it is a useful article yet), I just added what was spontaneously on my mind. I started the Bavarian beer (for now, it should be "Munich Beer"), but only because I did not want to integrate it into the main article immediately (to have some sandbox). We should discuss this in the articles discussion page! --Flip666 16:42, 7 April 2006 (EDT)
Just wanted to mention again that as an occasional visitor to Bavaria and an always big fan of food and beer, I appreciate your contributions and hope that the discussion doesn't put you off! Articles here are always a work-in-progress, so don't worry about getting started within guides, if that's your main reason for starting seperate articles. Majnoona 12:28, 8 April 2006 (EDT)
Thank You, I just thought about it and maybe I am a bit too much in drinking beer because it is weekend and I am going to have some bottles of Augustiner in maybe an hour ;-). I'll continue the article on beer but maybe I should concentrate on more important things I can contribute to the Munich and Bavaria articles... --Flip666 12:34, 8 April 2006 (EDT)

external links

Hi Sapphire!

You are reformatting all the external links!? Is there a policy how they should look like? Can't find it... --Flip666 20:43, 9 April 2006 (EDT)

Yeah the policy can be found here Wikitravel:External_links. I forgot the name of section to look under, but the reason we try not to use links like this [[|CNN]] is because when it is written like this the link shows up first and it is harder for some to understand what they are looking at (I believe this is for the users of PDA and printed versions). Instead, we use '''CNN''' [], because it allows users to know the link is for CNN and then it shows the link if they decide to use it. That latter link is generally easier for people to use and more in style with Wikitravel style. Sapphire 20:52, 9 April 2006 (EDT)


Hi! I notice something about 10 minutes ago and I wanted to ask you to address this before anyone else notices it and deletes your images. Can you release all of the images you uploaded under CC-by-SA? That way with no one has to worry about the legal mumbo jumbo and we can use your images. Thanks! copyleft. Sapphire 23:16, 12 April 2006 (EDT)

Hello! I was a bit confused because I thought I had to do this, but I looked at some other photos (e.g. the top photo on the Munich article) and did not see anything like that. Could you have a look at photos of the Bangkok article if that's ok? Thanks! --Flip666 15:05, 13 April 2006 (EDT)
Looks great, however, you still need to release the following images under CC-BY-SA or both CC-BY-SA and GFDL, or another option is public domain. I'd recommend the second option. The first image is Image:OlympiabergFlip666.jpg and the second is Image:Poipet2SiamReap_Flip666.jpg
Ok, thanks! --Flip666 08:22, 16 April 2006 (EDT)

Bavarian beer

Grüezi Philipp! Andrew aka Sapphire put the Bavarian beer section up for deletion because you didn't started to add much more new stuff. I think it's a great topic to expand but are you still interested to do it? They other option would be to bring in the Bavarian cuisine section. Please let us now what you would like to do?

Madam Cabaret

Just to let you know, but we've decided to allow strip clubs into our guides. Please see Wikitravel:Sex tourism policy.

On a side note, could you translate Wikitravel:Recent changes patrol to German for me? I need to explain the feature on DE on this page: de:Wikitravel:Überwachung der letzten Änderungen, but I can't recall how to construct some words, especially, verbs in the past tense. Thanks. -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 15:12, 18 December 2006 (EST)
