Hello, RhinoMind! Welcome to Wikivoyage.

To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. If you are familiar with Wikipedia, take a look over some of the differences here.--ϒpsilon (talk) 04:32, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Also, thanks for your valuable contributions to Aarhus over the last days! :) ϒpsilon (talk) 17:39, 13 September 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Hi and thanks Ypsilon, I am happy someone finds it worth reading! I initially thought you were a bot, but now I can see from your UserPage you are flesh and blood :-) RhinoMind (talk) 18:38, 13 September 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Hi. Yeah I have a newly found interest in Finland and might want to visit some day too. Are you from Finland perhaps? RhinoMind (talk) 20:14, 1 January 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I like finland also and all of europe and asia etc. Just a friendly traveler. --DumfriesNative (talk) 20:15, 1 January 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Copenhagen Airport[edit]

Given that you seem to know a bit about Denmark and that the article mentioned in the title has been nominated for featuring and will go life in July, you might wish to have a look at it and weigh in on the vote on the nomination page... Hobbitschuster (talk) 20:17, 17 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Great. Thanks for noticing me. My knowledge and consideration is mostly of non-logistic nature however, but I will take a look at it. It looks quite good from a first glance. Cheers. RhinoMind (talk) 20:29, 17 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]


Again, thanks a lot for your contributions to Aarhus and other articles!

Did you know you can add coordinates to listings? This will make them visible on the article's dynamic map.

To add coordinates, first either open the older version of the dynamic map by clicking the icon just above the upper right corner of the article's banner or alternatively go to [1]. Whichever site you chose, it’s practical to open it in a new tab or window.

Then right-click (or click, depending on which site you chose) in the map on the building/whatever you want to get coordinates for, and a speech bubble will open with its coordinates. Mark, copy and paste the latitude and longitude into the listing's lat and long parameters. Have a look at the wikicode for listings that already have coordinates, e.g. Aarhus#See, to be sure you use the right format. Cheers! ϒpsilon (talk) 08:38, 4 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi and thanks. I wasn't aware that you could extract coordinates like that, I have used an on-line site I found useful for that purpose instead when I added coordinates to the article some time ago. I think I have added the most essential coordinates for now, but do you have any special wishes in this regard perhaps? RhinoMind (talk) 09:16, 4 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Well, it would be good if everything that is located somewhere (sights, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, accommodation and many activities) would also have coordinates. The Aarhus article is in such a good shape that if it weren't for the coords it would likely be nominated for DotM or OtBP already. :) ϒpsilon (talk) 09:26, 4 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Aarhus eat listings[edit]

Some of the consensus about making this DoTM revolved around whether eat listings should be arranged by price point or by category (since there is currently a hybrid system going on). Do you think the traveler would be better served by pulling the price-arranged listings out and putting them into a category? If so, I can help you shift things around. If not, I think we should add subcategory titles for some of the more explanatory sections and shift them below the general price-range arrange listings to make it easier to skim to sections of interest. I want to make sure we can get the article to a place where there is no excuse to not feature it. Hell, I'd like to see the article reach Star status and I think we can get it there.

Hi there. Let's discuss this at the Aarhus TalkPage. I think we are on the same page in this case. RhinoMind (talk) 23:06, 24 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Winter in the Nordic countries[edit]


We have a little project going on developing the Winter in the Nordic countries article up to guide status during this winter in order to feature it as FTT at the brink of the winter season in late 2018 (maybe October or November). As you may see, the article could need some more stuff related to Denmark. If there's something interesting/fun going on there during the winter months, you're most welcome to add it. --ϒpsilon (talk) 21:52, 25 December 2017 (UTC)[reply]

@Ypsilon: Hi and thanks for the notice. I can't think of anything in particular from Denmark related to winter. Most of the time there isn't even snow here, it is just dark, cold and boring :) Christmas stuff around December in some of the larger cities might be of interest though. There are of course a lot of cultural things going on, as is the case all year round, but nothing related to winter in particular I would say. RhinoMind (talk) 00:45, 26 December 2017 (UTC)[reply]
OK, thanks for the reply anyway. If you notice something else is missing from article, feel free to add it. ϒpsilon (talk) 10:39, 26 December 2017 (UTC)[reply]
