Images with writing on them
Hi, Renek78. I know there's a policy against having photos with people's names or other stuff like that written on the photo. I can't find a reference right now, but I know that's Wikivoyage policy. Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:55, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
- Sorry, Ikan Kekek. I did not mean to undo your removal of the pictures. I guess I accidentially modified an older version of the page. Should be fine again now. --Renek78 (talk) 19:22, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
Mapshape for Buenos Aires does not work
- Swept in from the pub
Hi all, me again with an issue with Mapshape. Just now I am fooling around with an overview map of Buenos Aires. Coloring the districts via Mapshape works great, but unfortunately I am not able to grey out everything behind the city boundaries. The code is supposed to look like this:
- If you were to add type=geoline to the Mapshape template, the output would show that the line created is not closed - top right on map (coordinates needed to create a polygon have to be complete or closed). -- Matroc (talk) 17:25, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
- Matroc With Geoline I can see, that something is open at relation Comuna 13. In OSM though it is closed and fine. Recently somebody messed around with this relation in OSM and someone else reverted this edit. Maybe we just need to wait a few days until it is fine again. Thanks for your help. —The preceding comment was added by Renek78 (talk • contribs)
Dynamic maps without Wikidata items
Hi there, thanks for the message on User talk:Shaundd/Dynamic Region Map. I saw your comment in the Pub first, so I left a response there. If you want more detail on the process, let me know. Cheers -Shaundd (talk) 06:48, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
Moving hotels in Singapore
I saw you have been doing a lot of work recently on some of the Singapore articles. Thanks for that, those are really huge improvements.
I saw that you have been moving some listings around which where in the wrong district. Generally I think that is a good idea, but there is one case where I would like to revert your move. You moved two hotels from Singapore/Riverside to Singapore/North and West. Now while the two hotels are technically in the area which we designate North and West, I would argue that they belong to the other article. They are still pretty close to the river and in my opinion fall into that same group of hotels as all the other ones along the river. North and West is a sort of collection of everything outside the city centre, and as such in my opinion should contain hotels outside the city centre.
Let me know what you think.
BTW, if your motivation for the move was that there is not enough hotels in the North and West article, then I can think of a couple other ones to add to that article.

- Entered code on your talk page for a maplink to make a geoshape for Fort George if you can use it...
Recent changes to Manhattan districts
Hi Renek78, I noticed you recently shuffled a number of listings between Manhattan districts. Looking at the changes, it seems like you were aligning listings with the mapmasks you added -- but those mapmasks don't match the current district boundaries shown on the static maps. Was there a discussion to change Manhattan's district boundaries to align with the boundaries in OSM? I don't see one but wanted to check with you. Cheers -Shaundd (talk) 02:00, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
- Hi Shaundd, this is our usual dilemma. Stick with 6 years old maps, which are outdated and never get updated or change to a dynamic map with a slightly different district setup and always up-to-date maps. I have not discussed it, simply plunged forward. The main issues arose in Gramercy Flatiron. This district goes up north a lot more than on the static map - even includes the Empire State Building now. The rest of the districts are actually very close to the dynamic maps, I would say. --Renek78 (talk) 08:59, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
