Helsingin artikkelin uusi aluejako[edit]

Terve!

Ajattelin että tämä kiinnostaisi sinua, koska olet muokannut Helsingin artikkeleitä jonkin verran. Helsinki/Centralissa oli sen verran paljon listauksia että se oli varmaan yksi Voyagen pisimmistä alueartikkeleita. Näinpä erottelin siitä Helsinki/Southin joka käsittelee kaikkea Bulevardin ja Espan eteläpuolella sekä Helsinki/Kamppi and Southwestin joka olisi Bulevardin ja Baanan välinen alue ja joka sitten jatkuu Ruoholahteen, Lauttasaareen ja valtatie 51:tä Espooseen.

Ettet katso Helsinki/Centralia ja luulet, että joku on ilkimys on poistanut ravintolalistauksesi ateriakuvineen "bittiavaruuteen" :). Siirsin myös pari tapahtumaa (sambakarnevaali, burlesque, pride) Helsingin pääartikkeliin jossa muutkin isot tapahtumat ovat. ϒpsilon (talk) 16:53, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Kiitos hyvästä työstä. Uudet artikkelit näyttävät oikein hyviltä. JIP (talk) 18:21, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Coordinate question[edit]

Swept in from the pub

I just added a listing for Korean Kitchen to the page Espoo. However, when I added the coordinates, the map shows its location all to the west of the Iso Omena shopping centre, when in fact (I have visited it myself) it is located inside the shopping centre, on the eastern side. But to look up the coordinates, I used Google Maps to find the restaurant and copied the displayed coordinates almost exactly. Why is it still showing it in the wrong place?

A Korean restaurant in Espoo? I need to check it out sometime!
Considering the issue at hand, likely there is a difference in the coordinates Google gives and the coordinates our map uses. You can click on the icon in the upper right corner of the article that has a map and a magnifying glass to open the old version of the dynamic map (which still retains the feature of enabling you to extract coordinates). Then right click on the map to get coords for a place (coords as shown on our map). It will open in a speech bubble; copy and paste that into the listing's parameters.

On a sidenote, copying coordinates from Google Maps is discouraged due to licensing issues. Vidimian (talk) 15:53, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Kautokeino[edit]

I hope you saw my answer in the tourist office (archive). I happened to pass by now after a hike in the Muotkatunturit area. I had no time to check anything, but my impression did not change. One thing to note is that the seasons are very late this year: the berries were not ripe yet, the reindeer round-up was three weeks later than usual (in July instead of June for Muotkatunturit) and the räkkä season was very much ongoing (most mosquitoes disappear with the first cold nights, but we had night temperatures of about +10°C). --LPfi (talk) 18:30, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
