You're doing a bang-up job on the Oakland article. We like to see that kind of thing. Keep up the good work, Wikivoyager.

Thanks! I play on getting the Oakland page nice and shipshape, since I've lived here for six years and in the area for nearly 40. :-)

I wanted to drop you another note thanking you for the excellent work on Oakland. While some of your requests for feedback may go unanswered, I think it's because of a lack of other editors who know the city, and because your edits are already spot on and thus don't need more general style/policy-related feedback. Your work is very much appreciated and doesn't go unnoticed ;) I have a certain penchant for touring underappreciated/feared parts of the U.S., and hope I get to take advantage of the guide some day. Although my planned Africa trip this summer will likely clean me out of disposable income for some time! --Peter Talk 17:25, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
It's been a while since someone sent kudos your way, but you've done a great job with the Berkeley (California) and Oakland articles, and it definitely hasn't gone unnoticed. Thanks! -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:03, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

Destination of the Month Nomination[edit]

Hi, L. Challenger. I hope you're still around, and I want to let you know that I just nominated Oakland for Destination of the Month. Please have a look at the nomination here: Wikivoyage:Destination of the month candidates.

All the best,

Holy doughnuts - RL had me under proverbial lock and key for a good while there! That's... amazing news! L. Challenger (talk) 22:14, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Glad to have you back. There's been a consensus to feature Oakland, and it's very well-deserved. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:34, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
And! I found a public domain image that is a BIG improvement for the main page, had an explicit CC0 on it and everything. L. Challenger (talk) 22:29, 21 June 2013 (UTC)


Hi, L. Challenger. There's a current discussion in the last section of Wikivoyage:Destination of the month candidates/Banners about possible banners for the DotM feature of Oakland. I don't like any of the 3 banners that have been proposed so far. Would you like to try your hand at a better one? Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:59, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Oakland edits[edit]

Hi, Challenger l! I'm on the road and not spending as much time on Wikivoyage, but if you don't agree with a lot of the edits the IP editor made, it might be best to say why on Talk:Oakland, because the edits are substantive and not obviously tendentious, spam, vandalism or touting. You could ask whether there is any objection to changing or reverting them in x or y way that you think best. If none are raised, you could then edit at will, and if the IP editor wants to engage in discussion, have a conversation with him/her on the talk page. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:54, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
