Default address info[edit]

Thanks so much for adding content to the Dover article, which had been neglected. I made some followup edits. Note that on this site, we don't include default parameters in addresses, since we know that unless otherwise stated, everything listed in the Dover guide is in Dover, DE, and the addresses are conceived of as helping readers find places, rather than for snail-mailing. I also removed a bit of touting that I noticed at a glance; I figure that had probably been there a long time before you started editing the article.

Thanks again,

Thanks for telling me that. I noticed other articles didn't have the city in the address and I guess Dover wasn't following the standard. Dough4872 04:41, 17 February 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You bet. I sometimes wonder if this is something worth spending any time on, but it does seem unnecessary to remind people that everything is in the city they're reading about. On a somewhat similar basis, when I see "x is a Dover hotel/restaurant/store/what have you", I delete that phrase, but in that case, I suspect touting by keyword.
