Table[edit]

Err, do we really need a HTML table for the list of cities? It's somewhat daunting for new users to edit and I'm not sure what value it adds... (WT-en) Maj 15:21, 2 January 2007 (EST)

Is there a better way? Wiki markup table? I just used HTML because I know it. There's a something similar in Yangshuo article too. (WT-en) Pashley 23:13, 2 January 2007 (EST)
Changed it to a Wiki list. You're right, it is better this way. (WT-en) Pashley 04:14, 4 January 2007 (EST)

Moved festivals[edit]

I deleted the "festivals" section here and put the information in the China article. These are not unique to Fujian. (WT-en) Pashley 22:33, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Style[edit]

Looks great! Nice work. (WT-en) Maj 00:45, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Photos[edit]

I just deleted an entire section added by an anon user, links to photos:

This seemed useless to me (some nice shots, but much crud too) and, more important, it seemed to fall outside our "primary sources only" policy. Other opinions? (WT-en) Pashley 22:54, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

Other destinations[edit]

I've deleted a bunch of stuff there that described "attractions" rather than "destinations" in Wikivoyage terms — temples, parks, etc. Most were already covered in city articles and I moved others to the relevant city. Here's what's left over:

  • Zuo Hai Sea World, have the Museum of Tropical Rain Forests, Marine Museum, the performing Seals Museum, Museum of Underwater World, and a shopping center. The Sea World displayed a variety of more than 100 kinds of marine life, including ferocious great white shark, the gentle leopard sharks, the shark Fuji. There are colorful tropical fish, "Prince of Africa", "American Hua Mao", alligator, elephant fish, butterfly fish, and other rare species. It is one the unique large-scale underwater world in the southeast coast.
  • Yunlong Bridge is a spectacular covered bridge near Luofang (羅坊) in Liancheng County. It is over 300 years old and is in excellent condition. Just nearby there is a large statue of Mazu.
  • Forest Park, one of the nine forest parks in the country which is located in northern of the city. Its surrounded on three sides by mountains while the other faces the river. The entire park is divided into five parts: Mid-Asian tropical evergreen broadleaf tree region, South-Asian tropical jungle region, Banyan tree region, region of wild fruit trees in hilly country and off-shore r wood region. It also includes a rare botanical garden and a rose camellia garden.

These clearly don't belong here. Do they belong anywhere? (WT-en) Pashley 04:12, 24 October 2008 (EDT)

Map?[edit]

The current map is clearly wrong, or at least misplaced. It depicts the position of Fujian within China but is titled "Regions of Fujian". Ideally, I suppose we'd have both. At any rate, we need a map that actually shows the regions.

However, a quick check on Commons does not show a regions map and I do not know how to import the one from WT. Any volunteers to fix this? Pashley (talk) 04:01, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Please don't do anything in cases like this. The map is on Wts and either has been moved to Commons or will be moved to Commons later. All of these problems will be handled by the "move to Commons" process eventually. --Stefan2 (talk) 13:27, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
Does this still apply? Pashley (talk) 22:43, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
It has now been fixed. Thanks, Peter. Pashley (talk) 03:55, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Pagebanner[edit]

Joe young yu substituted this banner:

New banner

This was the banner:

Old banner

My feeling is, the new banner is sharper but the old banner is more unusual and distinctive, so I mildly prefer to restore it. What do you think, and why? Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:59, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

I prefer the old one. Pashley (talk) 10:33, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Any other opinions? I think we should revert the substitution within 24 hours or less if there is no objection. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:22, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
The new banner looks stretched to me. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 20:30, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
I'm going to go ahead and restore the old banner. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:49, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Renaming regions[edit]

Based on what the common names in Chinese are, I think we should rename the Southern Coast area as South Fujian, the Northern Coast area as East Fujian, and Inland Fujian as West Fujian. Of course, the complication in this is that Putian is not considered to be a part of South Fujian, so perhaps a workaround will be to split Putian off into a separate region.
