More on Photos
- In most cases, there is no other choice, and that's where we're most indebted to you for taking photos! In the case of the Mysore Palace, there were many photos on Commons, and I chose a good one that was distant and therefore wasn't blocked in any way by people in the crowd, who were part of the photo but don't distract the viewer in any way.

- Dear Ikan Kekek, Mysore is a beautiful city, if you can keep away from the touristy places. The frequently visited places are all crowded and taking a photograph without someone in the middle is virtually impossible. The residential suburbs of Mysore are very sweet with people having a laid back culture. They get up at eight in the morning, work only a few hours and are always found in parks and gardens. With regards,--Prof TPMS (talk) 14:13, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
Dear Ikan Kekek, like in the novel ʽThe City & the Cityʼ of China Miéville, every city has two faces. One is touristy, commercialized or crowded and not a single photograph is possible. Another is beautiful and cultured and you want to take out your camera very often. Mysore become that self by 6.30 am and loses it by 6.45 am when the traffic and the crowds begin to appear.

Too many photos
Hi, Prof. Don't you think Mandya (district) has too many images now? Two are fully below what would otherwise be the end of the article. Do you plan on adding lots of content to the article very soon? Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:19, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
I look forward to that.
- All the best,
- Hi. It looks to me like you're going overboard with the photos again. After your edits to Mysore (district), the last two photos extend beyond the end of the article on my browser. I think it would be more useful to visitors for you to concentrate on adding more content, rather than trying to fit too many photos into articles with little content.

- You mean the last photo. But there were two photos that went beyond the article; now there's one. I don't want to just delete that photo; I'd like you to please decide which image is least important, delete that one, and make sure the last photo isn't as low as it now is.

- Dear Ikan Kekek, in the page Mysore (district), the photograph of the silk saree is aligned against the bottom of the 'eat' section and three other sections like Drink, Stay Safe and Go Next still hangs below that last photograph. I am speaking of my ordinary 15 laptop. So I can't imagine what you are saying. Prof TPMS (talk) 09:49, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your edits to Tumkur. They are a big improvement to the article. It would be really helpful, though, if you could provide at least address information for the hotels you have added. Telephone, email, website information would be really worth adding, too, if it is available. The listings don't help travellers if they can't find the hotels.
