Talk:Himalayan North

Article title[edit]

...just a suggestion. The title Himalayan North implies that the article discusses the northern part of the Himalayas, which it does not. The northern part of the Himalayas is in Tibet/China. All parts of the Himalaya that are in India, Nepal and Bhutan are actually the south or south facing part of the mountain range. If you want to distinguish the states included in this article from those of the plains, I think just 'Himalayan' would be a more accurate title. Anyway, this is just a suggestion. As king of the India page, I'll leave the decision in yor capable hands. Anon. 1 Jan 06

Sorry forgot to answer this.. Problem is, the Himalayas stretch all the way till the east of India, so I wanted to make it clear that it was the Himalayan part of North India that was being covered. I hope it won't cause much confusion. And I am not the "king" of the India page. I do what I can, but I do hope others participate too :) (WT-en) Ravikiran 12:41, 6 Jan 2006 (EST)


The banner image is not from a place covered by this article. It is from near Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, North-Eastern India. Nurg (talk) 02:04, 5 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Tawang needs a custom pagebanner. Would this one be appropriate to move there? Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:04, 7 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I moved the pagebanner to Tawang. A new pagebanner is needed for this article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:42, 5 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
OK, how do we get the pagebanner I moved to Tawang to stop showing here? I guess something has to be done on Wikidata, but I don't know what or how. Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:49, 5 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I've temporarily deleted the default pagebanner, which I know isn't desirable, but neither is showing a picture from across the country. Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:52, 5 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
The banner was added at Wikidata, in which case it overrules the default banner here. I have removed it from there, so the default banner should display correctly now. Vidimian (talk) 22:01, 5 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I couldn't figure out how to find it at Wikidata. How do you find banners there? Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:01, 5 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
(Almost?) every guide in Wikivoyage has a link to the corresponding Wikidata item on the left side of the screen, inside the "Tools" section. For example, your hometown links to this data item. When you open it, you can see a main header which says "Statements". Under that header you will see a box saying "Wikivoyage banner", if there is a banner associated with the guide in question and if that banner is already added to Wikidata. You can change or altogether remove the banner by editing that statement. (The Big Apple's data item is a little too crowded, so you can also check out the one for the Plains of India region for easier reference.) Vidimian (talk) 23:20, 5 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:57, 6 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I put in banner of a view of the Northern Himalayas, it is a nice picture but the drawback its a view from the Tibetan side - looking around to see if I can find another. - Matroc (talk) 04:00, 6 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
