All the best,
Continuing thanks for all your edits to articles about places in Paraguay!
I'm wondering about using the word "esquina" in addresses. If it's used in street signs, that's great and helps visitors find places. Otherwise, shouldn't we use the English words "corner of", instead? What do you think? Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:27, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
- I've just used local terminology, or what a traveller will find useful when asking for directions. "Corner of" or "and" would be right as an international address terminology. What should be used in Wikivoyage?
- I definitely get your point. The issue is that some readers may not understand what "esquina" means (they'd better learn! but that's another story, and might be better addressed in Spanish phrasebook). I guess I'm not sure about this question. I hope some other people express an opinion. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:51, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Percentage of Mennonites in Filadelfia
Hello, Cmasi, and thanks for correcting my misunderstanding on the number of hospitals and supermarkets there. The second paragraph of the "Understand" section of that article states that "The Mennonites comprise 30% of the population". If that's true, it could either make them a plurality or simply a minority, but it couldn't make them the majority. Does that make sense? Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:50, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
- Hi Ikan Kekek, thank you for helping me in adjusting my writing. Yes, I understand what you mean, and I've corrected the paragraph to make more sense. Cmasi (talk) 06:29, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
Creation of regions
Do not want to stop you creating useful information but please be aware that Wikivoyage is not a classification encyclopedia and there is no need to create regions for every government district. Regions should reflect useful areas for visitors and should be created when there are a good number of city articles for that region. First create city articles with content, then add extra regions. --Traveler100 (talk) 21:02, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
