You're doing really nice work on [[Hilversum]]! I look forward to seeing where you take it.  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 22:32, 24 April 2009 (EDT)
:I'd like to echo Peter's comment. You've made some great improvements to [[Hilversum]]! [[User:ChubbyWimbus|ChubbyWimbus]] 01:16, 27 July 2009 (EDT)
::And in case you didn't notice, Hilversum has now been nominated for [[Dotm#Hilversum|Destination of the Month]]&mdash;contgratulations!  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 17:39, 3 August 2009 (EDT)
== Gooi Vechtstreek==
I'm not too sure what happened [[Gooi Vechtstreek|here]]. Did you mean to wind up with a blank article?  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 17:29, 3 August 2009 (EDT)
I messed it up, the page has to be deleted, but I don't know how that works. The original article is [[Gooi and Vecht Region]]. [[User:Globe-trotter|Globe-trotter]] 01:02, 4 August 2009 (EDT)
==Netherlands regions==
Just double checking whether you meant to replace your earlier comment here [].  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 13:50, 7 August 2009 (EDT)
Yes, I meant that haha. I changed my opinion :) [[User:Globe-trotter|Globe-trotter]] 13:53, 7 August 2009 (EDT)
== Lumphini Park? ==
Why did you move Lumphini Park out of Bangkok/Silom into Sukhumvit?  It's right next to Silom and there's even an MRT exit from Silom station into the park. [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 06:54, 11 August 2009 (EDT)
:In the article of Sukhumvit, it says: ''For the purposes of this article, the Sukhumvit district is defined broadly to include everything south of Phetchaburi Rd (Phayonyothin) and north of Rama IV (Silom).'' Lumpini Park is north of Rama IV, so I figured it would go there. [[User:Globe-trotter|Globe-trotter]] 07:18, 11 August 2009 (EDT)
::You're allowed to use common sense here, and that sentence is supposed to mean that "everything between Silom and Phayonyothin is Sukhumvit".  <s>I'm moving it back.</s> Nevermind, it looks like you already did... [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 23:37, 11 August 2009 (EDT)
== Thanks... ==
...for helping clean up Bangkok, that data dump from TAT (all the random listings on the main page) has been a real bitch to get sorted out. [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 03:20, 15 August 2009 (EDT)
: Yes, it's an absolute mess and should be cleaned up. I suggested Bangkok as a CotM to make it better, as the potential is definitely there. [[User:Globe-trotter|Globe-trotter]] 10:37, 15 August 2009 (EDT)
:: At the rate you're working on it, you'll be finished before it can be selected for CotM!  But why'd you nuke eg. the Bamboo Bar from Rattanakosin? [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 03:00, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
:::With the new Yaowarat region, I figured the Bangrak area could not be with Rattanakosin anymore, as it would make a strange island west of Silom. I think Bangrak would fit better with Silom anyway, as Oriental is like 300 meters from Silom Rd. We could add this part to the Yaowarat district as well, but I think it's not a Chinese area. I made the districts like this: , though I am still working on it. I'd like to have some suggestions on the regions, whether they're OK, what to change, etc. As I am still working on it.

:::: &rarr; [[Talk:Bangkok#Regions.2Fdistricts_of_Bangkok]] [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 07:58, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
: Did my best to root out the Do section, though there are probably room for improvement :) one section (Cultural Performances) needs a re-writeup since I moved out all the listings to districts, not in a small part thanks to your awesome map, but at any rate, I think it's an improvement. Just imagine if we could save another major destination like we did Rome.  --[[User:Sertmann|Stefan (sertmann)]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Sertmann|Talk]]</sup></small> 19:35, 15 September 2009 (EDT)
== Radio Hilversum ==
Great page on Hilversum. For those of my generation (55+) Radio Hilversum was a mark on a dial of the old-fashioned valve radios. That was about all we knew of the place. You indicate it was a media town but might like to specifically mention why Hilversum appeared on all our radios.
While you are at it, I don't understand the phrase >the notorious infrastructure system< and you should correct "amount" of people to number of people.[[User:Roundtheworld|Shep]] 14:30, 15 September 2009 (EDT)
== Status of [[Ubud]] Article ==
I see that you reverted my edit which changed the status of this article from guide to usable. Why is that please?  The article does not closely follow the Wikitravel manual of style which is a requirement for guide status.  Virtually every listing in this article  is a bullet with random prose.  Very few listing templates are used which is surely a requirement? I made this point when changing the status on the article [[Talk:Ubud|talk page]] --[[User:Burmesedays|Burmesedays]] 09:44, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
== Climbing Mount Batukaru ==
It is arguable either way. Personally I prefer it in the Tabanan article which I designed to cover the western part of the central region. You are correct that with the road through Jatiluwih now being passable, Mount Batukaru is accessible from south of Bedugul. Lots of folk approach the climb from Sanda though (I have climbed the mountain 3 times from this direction) and the start of that ascent route is not accessible from Bedugul.  If it does go into the Bedugul article then the preamble to the Bedugul article will need to be changed and Pura Luhur Batukaru would also need to be moved.  From a purely practical viewpont that would also leave the Tabanan article very thinly spread.--[[User:Burmesedays|Burmesedays]] 10:40, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
==Netherlands map==
Just a heads up so you don't miss [[Image talk:Netherlands-regions.png|this comment]].  --[[User:Peterfitzgerald|Peter]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Peterfitzgerald|Talk]]</sup></small> 16:55, 19 October 2009 (EDT)
==Hilversum map==
Has this map been changed yet? ( I dont know what it looked like before so can't check for myself) [[User:Pbsouthwood|Peter (Southwood)]] <small><sup>[[User_Talk:Pbsouthwood|Talk]]</sup></small> 16:18, 29 October 2009 (EDT)
==Hilversum makes it to [[Wikitravel:Star_nominations#Hilversum|Stardom]]==
Hilversum appears to be accepted for star status. See the nominations page. Congratulations on your efforts. -- [[User:Pbsouthwood|Peter (Southwood)]] <small><sup>[[User_Talk:Pbsouthwood|Talk]]</sup></small> 01:39, 8 November 2009 (EST)
:Don't forget to add the star to the top of the article.  =)  [[User:LtPowers|LtPowers]] 10:37, 9 November 2009 (EST)
==New Bangkok map==
Thanks for your work on [[Bangkok]]. Please have a look at comments [[Talk:Bangkok#New larger region map|here]]. Thanks! [[User:Texugo|Texugo]] 22:24, 6 December 2009 (EST)
==London Boroughs==
Why did you delete the audit update of where we stand with London boroughs from [[Talk:London]]? I am finding it ''very'' difficult to navigate that discussion and think it really helpful to have an updated list (which others can correct or add to).  I am thinking it may have been a mistake (?) so am reverting for now. Cheers :) --[[User:Burmesedays|Burmesedays]] 09:05, 8 December 2009 (EST)
:No problems.. I figured as much. That sort of thing happens to me here sometimes when I have multiple screens open. --[[User:Burmesedays|Burmesedays]] 09:29, 8 December 2009 (EST)
==West Bali==
I noticed that you bulleted the See and Do sections of [[West Bali]]. I had understood that the See and Do sections of a region article should be in prose format and not listed bullet points? See [[Talk:Bali#Push_for_star_.28audit.29|here]] for example.  Cheers. --[[User:Burmesedays|Burmesedays]] 10:00, 10 December 2009 (EST)
== Thailand Map ==
[[:Image:Thailand_regions_map.png|That]] is a ''very'' nice map!  Great work. And I must say, the colour scheme goes beautifully with its neigbours [[:Image:Cambodia_Regions_Map.png|Cambodia]] and [[:Image:Laos_Regions_Map.png|Laos]]. Very well done. --[[User:Burmesedays|Burmesedays]] 08:10, 15 December 2009 (EST)
== Oceania regions ==
Why change countries to regions? They are all countries in the list. Regions should go above when Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia are discussed. [[User:Roundtheworld|Shep]] 06:47, 23 December 2009 (EST)
== Patrolling ==
Hey Globe-trotter,
Seeing all the work you've done on the CoTM, I'd like to point you to another task that could really need some help - the [[Wikitravel:Recent changes patrol|Recent changes patrol]]. As I've just pointed out [[Wikitravel:Travellers'_pub#Patrolling|in the pub]], at the moment me and Burmesedays seem to be doing the lions share of the patrolling, but the more users involved in this, the less tedious it gets - the ultimate goal is making sure no edits go unpatrolled - About a quarter sometimes up to half the edits on English wikitravel, are ones that need to be reverted, so it's a pretty essential task to keeping WT clean and useful for everyone.
If you want to help, try go to your preferences (up on the top right), once there select the recent changes tab and check the "Enhanced recent changes (JavaScript)" option. If you go back to the [[Special:Recentchanges|recent changes page]] now, edits will be grouped together, and edits that has not yet been patrolled will be marked with a red exclamation mark on the left side of the time-stamp in the summary. If there are any red exclamation marks try clicking on "(diff/X changes)" and above the summary you'll be able to click <nowiki>[Mark as patrolled]</nowiki> if everything is in order, or (undo) if it's spam, vandalism or [[dt|touting]] - if unsure just leave it and someone else will come along and check it.
Of-course everyone one is welcome to contribute with whatever they feel like doing,  just wanted to make sure you knew about his task. The more users involved in making sure there are no red exclamation marks on the recent changes page, the less tedious it get's. Personally I think a good approach is clicking on the "diff/X changes" on everything unpatrolled while holding down the ctrl button to open them all in new tabs, and then just go through them methodically
Cheers, --[[User:Sertmann|Stefan (sertmann)]] <small><sup>[[User_talk:Sertmann|talk]]</sup></small> 21:17, 28 December 2009 (EST)
