Talk:Transylvania triangle train tour

So, I really like this itinerary, and I think it was a good idea to link it from the Main Page. I have one question, though: I don't think TTTT agrees with our article naming conventions on capitalization. I think it should either be "Transylvania Triangle train tour" (if we're talking about the Transylania Triangle) or "Transylvania train tour". You can just mention that it's triangular, although it's a catchy name, too. Another option is "Transylvania triangle train tour". We just tend not to capitalize things if we don't have to. -- (WT-en) Evan 15:57, 7 Nov 2003 (PST)

Concerning the capitalization, I don't really mind how it's capitalized or not. The reason why I made it "Transylvania Triangle Train Tour" was due to the TTTT and also the fact that it looks better with all caps - consequently, I'd prefer it like that. There is no defined "Transylvania Triangle", it is simply a term that came up due to the fact that the tour is triangular. Consequently, I think "Transylvania triangle train tour" is best if you really don't want it to be capitalized, although I still think that Transylvania Triangle Train Tour gives it a better edge and corresponds with the other Romanian tours i'm in the process of doing. By the way, see my talk on Romanian Wikivoyage - I've posted a query there about the PHP file for the interface localization. And, again by the way, I think the phrasebooks and itineraries list linked from the front page is getting a bit too long. Should we have a specialised list of itineraries that is linked under "more..." from the Main Page, or should each itinerary just be linked from their country page... (WT-en) Ronline, 8 Nov 2003

Why is this page protected after it's been moved to the new name??? (WT-en) Ronline, 9 Nov 2003

Sorry, slip of the mouse. Not on purpose, I assure you. -- (WT-en) Evan 15:45, 8 Nov 2003 (PST)
That's alright! -- (WT-en) Ronline, 16:13, 9 Nov 2003

The first two paragraphs of the "understand" section are much nicer than the "Understand" of the main Transylvania article. Maybe they should be moved there. The Tour page - in my opinion - shouldn't replicate region/country/etc general information anyway. Anybody who takes the tour will also check out Transylvania anyway, unless they live on location in which case they don't need it. Any objections? -- (WT-en) Nils 05:37, 6 Apr 2004 (EDT)

Removing merge notice[edit]

is what I'm going to do very shortly if nobody objects - 18 months without any discussion whatever is more than long enough! --210.246.47.134 06:19, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

I tend to agree, but maybe it wouldn't hurt to wait another day and see if anyone objects. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:26, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
Sure, no worries - that's actually what I meant by "very shortly"... --118.93nzp (talk) 07:31, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Guide, personal itinerary?[edit]

The article is a Guide and as such a possible FTT candidate, at least theoretically. Likely just a dynamic map, markers, some photos and an update of the train schedules would be necessary.

But before doing any of that, do you think this is a "personal itinerary"? I suspect it is, but I'd like to hear other peoples' opinion as well. If you think this is the case, we can't feature it, otherwise let's plunge forward, fix the issues and feature the article sometime next summer. --ϒpsilon (talk) 20:44, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
