Maple Ridge and Billy Miner Alehouse[edit]

Hi. I reverted your 3 listings of the same establishment. Please choose one place to list it in all 3 capacities, and have a look at Wikivoyage's touting policy. Thanks a lot. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:35, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
OK, I coalesced the three listings of Billy Miner Alehouse & Cafe into one under Maple Ridge#Eat. I respect why WV needs a touting policy, but this is one of the cases where I think it doesn't serve Tcf well. Alehouse and cafe have different hours and phone numbers, traveller look under "Eat" and "Drink" separately, etc. But I don't care enough to argue the point hard.

Fair enough. Thanks for trying to work within the guidelines. Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:31, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Peace Memorial Museum[edit]

Hi! Your changed the day this museum is closed from "Dec 29-Jan 1" to "Dec 30-31". The official site gives the previous information. Are you sure that your source is reliable? I noticed because I update the French page from the English one. Cheers. Fabimaru (talk) 22:23, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Fabimaru, et merci pour votre interesse. I think you might be confusing two different places: the peace memorial museum and the memorial to the atom bomb victims. You gave a URL to the victims memorial. I got my date change information from the museum's Japanese language site. Plus, I was at the museum today. There is a sign in the lobby saying the museum is open on December 29, as an experiment. JimDeLaHunt (talk) 15:44, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
Hello Jim, thank you a lot for your answer. I will change the french page accordingly. Fabimaru (talk) 09:00, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your updates, WV:TDF[edit]

Jim, thanks for your updates to Bologna and other articles. Wikivoyage uses standard time formatting (for either the 24-hour or 12-hour clock) and standard abbreviations for days of the week. This makes it easier for travellers to read our guides, and gives Wikivoyage a more organized look. I've cleaned up the Bologna article once, but I see you are still using the idiosyncratic time and date formatting. (I've never seen "21:00h" anywhere in the world, and I'm just arriving home from 7 weeks in Italy). Do you think you could follow the standard formats so that others, like me, don't have to clean up your edits? Thanks. Regards, Ground Zero (talk) 02:33, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

Ground Zero, I appreciate that you noticed my changes to Bologna. I am grateful you pointed me to WV:TDF. I am glad to have good standards to follow, and I'm happy to follow them. I will also clean up my recent Bologna changes to make them follow the standards. One of my difficulties with Wikivoyage is that I started here a long time ago, before some of today's standards were in place, so my habits are old. Another of my difficulties is that I only really pay attention to Wikivoyage when I'm travelling, and have new things to contribute. That means I have little time to make edits, and less time to notice and study new formatting guidelines. But you are making it easier for me to do it right. Thank you.
