Information.png   Welcome to Wikitravel Shared, Peterfitzgerald/Archives 2007-2010!

If you want to specialize your experience you may want to consider editing your preferences. Before uploading please take a second to read over the copyleft, policies and guidelines, and the image policy but feel free to upload travel images. If you need help, check out the help desk, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the Travellers' pub.

Also, if you want to link to Wikimedia Commons try using [[:commons:Image:Name|Wikimedia Commons]]. There are no real added benefits, but it's still an option. -- Sapphire(Talk) • 18:20, 13 May 2007 (EDT)

Uploading instruction templates in different languages

Hi Peter! Your idea, language-specific text templates, is useful for new comers and helpful for shared too! But I'm not sure that the text is placed. Is it on How-To page of language versions, or user talk page as a message?

By the way, currently, ja: isn't promoting to use shared: positively, so I was thinking that I should modify ja:MediaWiki:uploadtext to say "Use the Wikitravel Shared! But please remind that is not ja:, image information must be in english." But now I've remembered Ricardo's suggestion. Portuguese-language portal to Wikitravel Shared is set up as a Portuguese Wikitravel page, and is linked from the navigation toolbar instead of a link to Shared's main page. How about this way? -- Tatata 04:34, 4 August 2007 (EDT)


Thanks for your answer in the pub. Much appreciated. OldPine 20:37, 27 August 2007 (EDT)

Votes for deletion

Hi Peter,

Sorry for bad news; I had to add Image:Kazan kremlin.jpg to Votes for deletion page because the source file was deleted on Commons... -- Tatata 01:41, 4 September 2007 (EDT)

No need to apologize, I really appreciate that you are putting in the hard work to check this kind of information! --Peter Talk 02:04, 4 September 2007 (EDT)

SAMOKOV Please note!!!! As any right minded person will appreciate the passage [[>"Quite a few Uk people have holiday homes or properties for rental in the area including the author."]] refers to the fact that the author (me, Lobbi, aka David Barker) refers to the fact that A) I am the author of the article, B) I have a property in the area.........which is quite probably why i know so much about the area!! Retrieved from ""

Thanks for clarifying that, and sorry for the misunderstanding. As you probably have noticed, your contributions have now been merged to en:Samokov per Votes for deletion#Samokov. Thanks for contributing! --Peter Talk 17:57, 12 June 2008 (EDT)


Just a pat on the back for your incredibly sharp maps. Way to go. OldPine 20:56, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Thanks! They are tough! --Peter Talk 22:47, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

Licensing tag

Whoops! --Peter Talk 23:32, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

Image:Great sand dunes.JPEG

Peter, what's the story with this photo? I've been to Great Sand Dunes many times, and while the scenery in the distance is entirely compatible with what I've seen there, the foreground is not. Might this have been an incompletely-cropped view of the dunes taken from a visitor center display or such? -- Bill-on-the-Hill 17:58, 4 December 2007 (EST)

Golden Lady

Hi Peter, sorry for bad news...

Can you check the source link of Image:Jackson Park, Statue of the Republic.jpg? It says "All rights reserved". Though I don't know it will be a help, I find other cc-by-sa photos[1]. -- Tatata 22:27, 11 December 2007 (EST)

License Upgrade

Hi Peter,

Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner. I have relayed this to John, and one of us will get in touch shortly. Really sorry about the delay.

Tech:Site slowdown

Hi! Thank you for your reply to IB on the tech page. Since this has caused quite some commotion in the pub, would you like to post your reply there too? Riggwelter 16:23, 21 February 2008 (EST)

Category:Suburbs of Saint Petersburg

Питер, пожалуйста, взгляните на категорию Category:Suburbs of Saint Petersburg. Я указал {{IsIn|Leningrad Oblast}} (по географическому положению) и [[Category:Saint Petersburg]] (по административному подчинению). А сами пригороды включил в Category:Suburbs of Saint Petersburg с помощью {{IsIn}}. Это правильно? -- Sergey kudryavtsev 04:39, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Оказалось, что где-то в Чехии тоже есть Стрельна Category:Strelna. Какое мне в скобках дать уточнение для названия категории: "Strelna (Leningrad Oblast)" или "Strelna (suburb of Saint Petersburg)", что вы мне посоветуете? Мне более импонирует первый вариант. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 04:39, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Да, это мне кажется и правильным и полезным.
Принято разрешать такую неоднозначность, используя название страны. Я думаю, что мы используем название региона, только если существуют больше одного места того же названия в одной стране. --Peter Talk 15:37, 24 March 2008 (EDT)
Стрельна ещё есть в Мурманской области, поэтому пусть будет Category:Strelna (Leningrad Oblast). -- Sergey kudryavtsev 17:03, 24 March 2008 (EDT)

Tech:Redirects gives a side effect on RDF features

Питер, проверте пожалуйста, понятно ли я описал ситуацию. Для меня слишком сложно писать по-английски, возможно, я где-нибудь ошибся в грамматике, и меня могут не понять из-за моего "crippled English"... -- Sergey kudryavtsev 07:13, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Спасибо, так много лучше. А заодно я вам подал идею относительно Tech:D.C. has problems (on Wikitravel too). ;-)
И, пожалуйста, ответте на мой вопрос в разделе выше (про пригороды Петербурга) -- Sergey kudryavtsev 17:27, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Squish them bugs biotch!

The tech backlog barnstar of excellenceness

Thanks for getting a hold on the backlog and making us realize we can and should all be helping keeping it neat and clear, not just waiting on IB... you rock – cacahuate talk 16:04, 21 March 2008 (EDT)


Питер, я тут откатил правку [2]. Больше с этого IP никаких правок не было. На будущее, скажите пожалуйста, где тут находится место для запросов к администраторам? -- Sergey kudryavtsev 17:26, 26 March 2008 (EDT)

Есть одна страница в английском разделе, en:Wikitravel:Vandalism in progress, но я думаю, что всегда будет легче просто контактировать с администратором прямо на его странице обсуждения. --Peter Talk 18:01, 26 March 2008 (EDT)
Согласно статистике, здесь уже 24 администратора, это уже много. Некоторые из них могут не регулярно заходить сюда. А оперативность в этом вопросе требуется. Пока буду сообщать в en:Wikitravel:Vandalism in progress. Но подумать остраничке здесь стоило бы... -- Sergey kudryavtsev 04:03, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

Tech:Disable AdWords for logged-in users‎

Питер, пожалуйста, проверте работает ли эта настройка в русском Wikitravel на вашей учётной записи. Кевин говорит, что должна работать, если сбросить кэш просматриваемой страницы. А у меня галка стоит, кэш сбросил, а реклама всё-равно показывается. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 03:21, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

Best place to stay updated on GFDL-CC compatibility?

Hello Peter. I see you have contributed to Why Wikitravel isn't GFDL where it says a new by-sa will be around in some months (relicensing to be compatible with GFDL licence). I wonder when that was written and if you can recommend a good way to stay updated on this. I'm kind of new to all this and preparing a wiki on leadership for which I consider dual licensing. I have a talk page on Wikitravel. --Kassoe 16:26, 28 April 2008 (EDT)

Thank you!

Great job tracking the international versions! JuCo 15:05, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
