Pratunam star discussion[edit]

Third district I nominate for Star status in Bangkok. Please let me know where it needs changes or additions in order for it to become a Star :) --(WT-en) globe-trotter 12:21, 20 June 2011 (EDT)

Almost. Some comments below. Just suggestions, and none of them are individually important enough to keep this fine article from receiving the star, --(WT-en) ClausHansen 14:39, 20 June 2011 (EDT)
  1. Intro, "It is another ...": appears unclear what it refers to
  2. Understand, "which is where the district got its name from": I would leave this out
  3. Understand: maybe there is a bit too much repetition in this section from other sections
  4. Map: why is eat no 3 in this article, as it from the map appears to be in another district?
  5. Listings: more Thai and transcription would be nice, if possible
  6. Rooftop bar: this listing might be a violation of the principle of only one listing each
  7. If possible, an intro to the see section would be nice
  8. Bangkok Dolls Museum: I would leave out the mentioning of winning a competition in 1978 in Poland
  9. Phaya Thai Palace: no need to mention opening hours twice
  10. Thai Labour Museum: I do not understand "Modern media are used to present the material, such as television, slides and computers"
  11. Buy: from the intro and Understand I would have expected more listings in the buy section
  12. If possible, an intro to the drink section would be nice
I have dedicated some time to fix the issues:
  1. Fixed.
  2. Fixed.
  3. I have taken some parts out that were duplicated. I hope its OK now, give it a re-read :)
  4. The reason for this is that a few streets here (the Ratchawithi sois) are best reached using the BTS to Victory Monument. I have adapted the map accordingly to add this area.
  5. I have added all the Thai names I could find.
  6. Hmm, good point. I have now merged both of them under the See section.
  7. There is almost nothing to See in Pratunam, that's why nothing was written there. I have now added a few sentences.
  8. Fixed. Although Poland is very highly regarded in the dolls world I've heard ;-)
  9. Fixed.
  10. Rephrased it.
  11. I understand what you mean. Before I used "Pratunam Market" to refer to the whole area, but I have now added some separate indoor malls that are located there (Pratunam Market now only refers to the outdoors market). Please re-read the Buy section, as I rewrote it extensively. I had to enlarge the map to fit the new icons on it, so please take another look at the map as well.
  12. Added a few sentences.
Alright, I hope it's better this way! --(WT-en) globe-trotter 22:27, 25 June 2011 (EDT)
Support, no furhter comments, --(WT-en) ClausHansen 01:33, 26 June 2011 (EDT)
  • Support. Excellent city district guide. I did a few little touch ups. --(WT-en) Burmesedays 02:07, 26 June 2011 (EDT)
Amazing. I go away for a week and when I get back there ar 4 new star nominations! Looks good at a glance, and I will try to go through it more carefully during the next week. Cheers, • • • (WT-en) Peter (Southwood) Talk 09:02, 26 June 2011 (EDT)

Result: Star.

Dynamic map or not?[edit]

The current static map is great, but it hasn't been updated since 2012 and a dynamic map would be much easier to update and add entries to. On the other hand, the dynamic map is all in Thai due to how OpenStreetMap works, which can confuse many tourists who don't know it. What would the best thing to do be in this case?
