Use of maps for students project
as a student from the International Tourism Management program in Leeuwarden, Holland, I would like to use one of your maps (of the Provence) to include in a guidebook we have to write for one of our assignments. Can I use this freely for educational purposes?
- The maps can be re-used according to the license requirements. Globe-trotter (talk) 19:32, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Bangkok BTS Skytrain map
Hi GT, I've been updating the info on the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BTS_Skytrain page. However, I neglected to note that your map requires a little update since the BTS Bang Wah ext opened on 5 Dec 2013. Could you pls add that in once you have some time. Thank you
Removal of world map from Main Page
- Because I changed the collaboration to the Wikivoyage:India Expedition. The map links to the Continents cotm, so I believed it was only there just to showcase the previous cotm. What else is the purpose of the map? I'm confused. Maybe we can place an image about India there? Globe-trotter (talk) 15:45, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I don't know what you mean about previous version is better. I think Wikivoyage should disclose the fact. China invasion in tourism is amazing, they come along the time and increase in about two weeks of Chinese New Year. Singaporean and Malaysian with economic better than Indonesia also utilize ASEAN free visa. Asian Russian 'live' in Bali for 2 or 3 months to avoid severe winter, certainly they are rich, not so many people, but continously increase. It's the fact. Japan decline year by year, while European countries in long recession, except Australia increase but not much anymore. Indonesian people are various, you can see Lamborghini, Ferrari, etc in Jakarta, but the poor are also still exist. The rich frequent come to Bali when there are 3 or 4 days consecutive holidays. In school holidays, many students with their parent or not get holiday in Bali and their favourite is Hard Rock Hotel and 4 stars hotels, but not in Nusa Dua. In fact there are no peak season anymore, sporadically there are spike for several days up to 2 weeks in several months and it is changing year by year. Wikivoyage without any references is very subjective, so I hope who contribute and edit Wikivoyage should know exactly the fact and the background.Gsarwa (talk) 05:07, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
- I don't deny these facts, but it's a rather dry statistical piece of text for a travel guide. Wikivoyage is subjective on purpose and as a travel guide, it should cater directly to travellers and be fun to read. This is a star article showcasing some of the site's best work. The long dry paragraphs on statistics of the tourism industry are more relevant for Wikipedia, you may want to contribute at w:Tourism in Indonesia. Globe-trotter (talk) 10:16, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I know what you mean. Based on statistic even China has toppled Australia. When the first time to Bali in 1980s, I'm surprised with one of the tourists from Australia who has visited Bali for the seventh time and visited Bali for a month each. Now, I'm not surprise anymore, because I visited Bali more than him, but not for the length of stay. I visited Bali not more than 2 weeks each and sometimes only 2 nights. It is typical of Indonesian visitors and also Singaporean, Malaysian and Chinese who usually not visited Bali more than one week each. Fortunately, Singaporean, Malaysia and Chinese came to Bali along the year. 5 years ago they have no much money, so vendors say they spent money only a fifth of the West European countries tourists (Australian are always spent not much money), but today Singaporean, Malaysia and Chinese tourists are richer and spent more money than five years ago. So the constellations are much different with five years ago in general business and in hotel occupations. Some Indonesian tourists are also spent more money for hotel, food, souvenirs (but not alcohol drinks) are compared to Australian tourists. So, the previous version is relevant to five or ten years ago. Star article certainly should be updated. Thank you so much for your attention.Gsarwa (talk) 16:36, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Hello GT. While I know you're away these days from Wikivoyage but I will appreciate if you please elaborate what else was going to be done with Tokyo region-list when you added this template. --Saqib (talk) 14:45, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for creating the article Ağstafa. If you are familiar with the destination please add some information on things to see and places to eat and sleep. --Traveler100 (talk) 10:31, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
Hi seems like your design was copied by the YT-Channel "Logistik-Kanal" for their Logo. This is just to inform you of the possible infringement of your copyright. Best -- Rillke (talk) 18:01, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
- Hi, Rillke. I hope User:Globe-trotter sees this message, but since they haven't edited this site since 11 August 2019, I wouldn't expect that. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:17, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
How we will see unregistered users
You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.
When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.
Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.
We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.
Thank you. /Johan (WMF)
