Point?[edit]

What is the point of this article? Does this list serve any purpose? Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:41, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

It's a list of Wikivoyage links. This kind of topic article that's really a repository of lists of articles centering around a particular broader topic is not unusual. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:39, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
So it should forever stay this way? I don't quite see the point in bare lists even though they have propagated. A disambiguation is of course fine, but this... Hobbitschuster (talk) 21:43, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
As I said, there are several articles of this nature. If you object to them, offer an alternative. I'm struggling to think of the best place to have the broader discussion. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:25, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
I'm going to improve this. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 17:27, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

TTY, TDD - w:Telecommunications device for the deaf[edit]

Swept in from the pub

How common still is the use of these devices for contacting organizations? There are a good few references to a number to call with TTY or TDD in listings, but currently less than a hundred on Wikivoyage. Is this something we should encourage and if so should be have a listing field for this, in addition to phone and tollfree parameter? Seems to me more useful than fax. Or are these numbers now outdated and obsolete because of web pages, emails and SMS? --Traveler100 (talk) 07:35, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

User:Netjeff has done some work on the related article at the English Wikipedia. I wonder if he could answer your question about how commonly used TTYs are these days. WhatamIdoing (talk) 01:19, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
