Default address info[edit]

Hi, Rio65trio, and thanks for your great, diligent work in adding lots of interesting listings to articles!

Fairly small thing, but on Wikivoyage, we omit default address information that doesn't help a person find an establishment. For example, 81667 München would be omitted. You might want to poke around in Wikivoyage:Manual of style and linked pages at your leisure some time. Meanwhile, please continue adding information!

All the best,

Hi Ikan Kekek, thanks for your advice. I just thought that when giving the full address, people can easily select the text and google it by right mouse click (e.g. for maps). Without the postcode it is not clear which street is meant, as there are often multiple streets with the same name in one country, or even in one city. For example, Berlin has 8 different streets named "Berliner Straße". But I can omit this, no problem!
Kind regards, --Rio65trio (talk) 02:38, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
If there's more than one street of the same name in a city, I think the postcode is indeed needed, and the "content" tab should also emphasize that this is the Berliner Straße in such-and-such a neighborhood, not any of the others. I also understand your argument, and maybe it's right. I thought I remembered a discussion in Wikivoyage talk:Listings. I can't find it, but by all means start a new one. I think it's better to have too much information than not enough. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:38, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing to that discussion, I will look it up and possibly start a new one. --Rio65trio (talk) 17:40, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
