Wikivoyage policy[edit]

While you've expressed your disregard for Wikivoyage policy in the past, I encourage you to propose changes to it and get consensus for those changes before trying to impose your preferred style on Wikivoyage articles. This process, while it can be cumbersome and time-consuming, avoids the time wasted by revert wars. You make useful contributions to this projects. It is unfortunate that you chose to ignore its policies and engage other contributors in an aggressive and dispectful way. That behaviour makes Wikivoyage less enjoyable for everyone, and from the tone of your comments, I can see that it has agitated you too. Regards, Ground Zero (talk) 20:49, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Stop edit warring both of you. There is certainly some third person who can judge what version is better, or whether there is an even better third way. –LPfi (talk) 21:57, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Thank you, Hobbitschuster, for recognizing my edits to some of the hotel and other proprietor listings out there. I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds when I take corrective action like that. It seems like it won't do a WV traveler much good to go somewhere and then find that a place is closed, so that has been my rationale. It's kind of sad when I can see someone has put a lot of effort into listing something though. Lazarus1255 (talk) 23:22, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

sadly removing things that no longer exist is one of our perpetual tasks. I fear that with the plague it'll even get more common. Thank you for contributing on it and of course it's sad to see some listings go, but if they no longer exist, it's best to remove them Hobbitschuster (talk) 07:37, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Textiles[edit]

I suppose I can partly guess what you meant by this, but I think you should be explicit about what business practices you are referring to:

South Asia was the world's leading textile producers with manufacturers engaging in several business practices that would characterize the later industrial era in the Global North.

Stuff like, err, "distributed manifacturing" maybe? I don't know how you call it when one big "company" buys the raw materials and takes over sales but "sources out" actual production to numerous home manufacturers. Anyway, I got the gist of "India was an economic superpower before colonialism" this excellent episode (and to a lesser extent this one - warning, bleak) of the "History of the Twentieth Century Podcast" Hobbitschuster (talk) 11:52, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. Do you find a way to word it explicitly in the article? As I know little about this, it is more difficult for me. I think I am not the most ignorant among our readers. –LPfi (talk) 08:47, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
