Upgrading article[edit]

Hi all, I've done some work on improving this article to get it up to standard. Do you think it's ready to be upgraded to usable status? --LivelyRatification (talk) 23:09, 18 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's not only Usable but almost a Guide. See Wikivoyage:City article status. The only thing standing in the way of Guide status is "Go next" destinations with 1-liner listings. It would also be good to link the Geelong bus system's website (if they have one) in the "Get around" section where it's mentioned. Also, if there's anything useful to mention about mobile phone connectivity, Wi-Fi (such as places with free Wi-Fi or coffee shops where you can get some coffee and use Wi-Fi) or post offices, that could go in "Connect"; otherwise, if there's no really useful information to put in that section, that section header could be removed.

I've added some things to the articles as per your suggestions -- the Geelong bus system doesn't have a website, so I've added a link to the map of that. --LivelyRatification (talk) 03:13, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Great! I think you might put "map" for the map links because, at least from halfway across the world, they take some time to load. I think this article is a Guide now, so I'll update the status accordingly. We could probably nominate this article for Destination of the month soon, except that since Belgrave was recently featured, it might have to wait a while.

How do I do that re: map links? --LivelyRatification (talk) 05:43, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My suggestion is:
"Alternatively, Route 50 (map) and 51 (map) operate[...]" Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:26, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
