It's been 10 years since I was in Salem so I can't very well write about any of it. The wax museum was very tacky and should probably be avoided. -- (WT-en) Nils 06:52, 22 Jul 2004 (EDT)

Salem (Massachusetts) article in serious condition[edit]

Swept in from the pub

I won't call it critical, but for such a highly visible tourist attraction, the Salem guide is in horrible shape, with all kinds of terrible formatting and touting problems. I just slapped a "style" tag with some remarks on the "Eat" section and did major excisions and detouts, but the section still looks dreadful, and "Drink" and other sections are also in big trouble. To hearken back to Salem's olden days as a seaport, this calls for all hands on deck. Anyone's attention and participation in the cleanup of this article would be time well spent.

What A Mess[edit]

If we choose to choose "the worst formatted page in the whole Wikivoyage", maybe this one will win easily? I will plunge forward here in a very near future and try to smooth things up. 200.252.135.73 18:58, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Your help is much appreciated. This article is in terrible shape. I just cleaned up the "Eat" listings a lot, and they are still a mess. The "Drink" listings, at a glance, seem just as bad. Ikan Kekek (talk) 14:46, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Too Many Links[edit]

It's perhaps just me, but this page seems somewhat bewildering - there are loads of links - perhaps the number could be cut down?--Nicholasjf21 (talk) 17:40, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Please be ruthless. I've taken a chainsaw to a lot of it, but it is still a mess of touting, duplicative listings and bad format. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:45, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
