Have a butter tart (or several). Ground Zero (talk) 03:27, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, although I wish I had been on the website when the vandalism itself took place. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 12:27, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

An award for you!

Impressive work on the New Smyrna Beach article! —Granger (talk · contribs) 20:18, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
@Mx. Granger: Thanks! By the way, if you see me undo your recent edit, I'm just adjusting the language to address the specifications you mentioned, not reverting your changes. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 20:21, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Actually, I like the flow of the current draft. I do think, however, that the summer temperatures are similar to those of a tropical rainforest climate, so that comparison will likely help tourists, but the others can go for sure. I'll add some more temperatures as you mentioned. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 20:23, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Okay, sounds good. —Granger (talk · contribs) 20:25, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Award well-deserved. The most noticeable thing about the climate in a tropical rainforest is the extreme humidity - the air feels very thick and heavy. Is this the case in NSB? Coastal towns usually have a breeze running through them which freshens things up.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 20:49, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Yes. On the immediate coast, there is a breeze, but once you leave the coast and go inland even a short distance, such as a mile or two, the humidity increases. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 20:51, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Ah. I've just noticed there's quite a lot of 'Do' listings inland.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 20:57, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Yes, while the beach is a popular destination (and deservedly so), I've also tried to emphasize that there are destinations west of the Intracoastal Waterway that are worth visiting for more adventurous explorers. Also, the Mainland region east of I-95 itself extends quite a way inland, even though it may look like a short distance on the map. Distances are large in NSB. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 20:58, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
@ThunderingTyphoons!, Mx. Granger: While I'd still consider it tropical rainforest, I've changed it to "wet tropical" because I think that is probably an even better suited term with which I think we'd all agree (the climate graph is helpful). --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 19:09, 26 April 2020 (UTC)
Okilly dokilly :P--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 19:20, 26 April 2020 (UTC)
Unless there is a preferred alternative wording.
I think the city receives more rain than almost anywhere in England... --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 19:21, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yes, it does. Who'da thunk it?--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 19:26, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Exactly. It doesn't feel like it rains as much, though, because it's sunnier...though not at the moment, ironically as England has been sunny lately apparently. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 19:28, 26 April 2020 (UTC)
Yes, and it happens more than you'd think :) --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 20:10, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Boating banner

Thanks for the banner for Boating in Finland! I don't know how you found that image, but I think it, in the banner version, is very typical for Finland. You even managed to get three different types of such small boats: a traditional wooden one, an inland plastic rowing boat and a typical somewhat more modern small outboard motor boat. --LPfi (talk) 17:24, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Lady Franklin's husband's Expedition

Hi there. I'm not a native Anglophone and have no grasp about these minutiae on articles and such. I thought the article should refer to "THE expedition of her husband" and thus wrote it. Thanks for the corrections, the splitting of paragraphs, and for not editing anything out. Ibaman (talk) 17:31, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

I think the current text should be clear enough, but I'll take a look and make any adjustments necessary for clarity. Thanks for mentioning this. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 17:43, 14 May 2020 (UTC)


You're a pleasant partner, dude, I admire your high-energy style; if we ever had quarrels, they were always most civil, and always for the ultimate benefit of Wikivoyage. This is most appreciated. In this spirit, I ask you to devise a banner for Yuquot, and make the final tweaks if needed, so we can have another Guide article. Ibaman (talk) 17:55, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

I’ll add a page banner shortly. Thanks for writing this article. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 18:12, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes Done Thanks for the kind words. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 18:16, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Innisfail (Queensland)

I see that you created a banner for Innisfail (Queensland), which was uploaded 12 minutes before mine. I added mine to the article, and only discovered yours when I went to Wikidata to add mine. I don't think that there is a clear winner between the two banners, so I will let you choose, and I am happy if you revert my edit. AlasdairW (talk) 21:18, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Ironically, I noticed the same image when I was considering which one to use. I'm not concerned either way, so let's use the new page banner you uploaded. We could use the original picture, for the previous banner, in the article if you also like it, as it seems to be a high-quality image showing the city. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 21:20, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

File:Small text.tiff

Hi! If you so firmly believe that this file is not in Commons’ project scope and thus should be kept here, please nominate it for deletion on Commons. If the result of the RfD there is deletion, you were right keeping it here; if the result is keep, it can safely be deleted here, as it’s quite unlikely to be deleted in a second RfD. The current situation, in which the file exists in both places, is definitely the worst possible. Regards, —Tacsipacsi (talk) 13:54, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

@Tacsipacsi: AndreCarrotflower had already taken the same action earlier, and I was simply (as far as I know) reverting to the revision he made. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 14:53, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
But I suppose you reverted because you agree with him. Anyways, I left a message on his talk page as well; please either of you take steps in some direction. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:38, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
As he's a bureaucrat, I — perhaps wrongly — reinstated his reversion. He'll probably respond with a day or two at most, probably less. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 22:41, 3 June 2020 (UTC)


Hi dude. I'm following the edits on Russian cities as of today; the insistent copyedit to enforce British spelling sounds oddly familiar here. Let's keep an eye open on this one. Just a heads-up. Ibaman (talk) 15:46, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

OK, thanks for letting me know. Sorry I forgot about that individual. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 16:21, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
