Something is wrong[edit]

Dear Texugo, Something is wrong, I'm Bangladeshi, please understand me!! Trying to make me guilty. Dear bro please help me.!! Best wishes to you, in helping for your justice solidarity. Armaan Aziz (talk)03:29, 01 January 2015 (UTC)

Ghana regions[edit]

Thanks Texugo I will do accordingly--Rberchie (talk) 13:30, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Berlin/South Centre[edit]

Any reason for referring to User:PrinceGloria as "her" in this edit? Apparently a "Prince Gloria" is a brand of motorcar, so does not indicate anything about the user or his gender. K7L (talk) 05:05, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, oop. Despite my brain's insistence that any "Gloria" must be female, I was already aware of that, as you can see from this correction. I just missed that reference when I was going back over it. I fixed it now. Thanks. Texugo (talk) 10:06, 10 February 2015 (UTC)


I know it is not policy to have links to wikipedia, but if you are going to do this would it not be a good idea to add a link to the locations web page and convert to a proper listing. Just making the entry less informative seam a little negative move and activity. --Traveler100 (talk) 14:08, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

I'll try to be a little sensitive to that, but most of these are info about people, events, or other things that do not have any official webpage. Texugo (talk) 14:14, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
In some cases, there is no official webpage but the item is a valid thing to "see" as part of an itinerary. I remember this issue arising before with the memorial park statues for the RMS Titanic victims, they don't have an official page but are notable to the Titanic cities itinerary. Removing these links doesn't help the traveller. K7L (talk) 18:30, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Practically every medium-sized or large city in the world, and many small ones, will have at least one item which "doesn't have an official page but is notable", and most of them will have several. I realize that is an argument used by those who wish to open the floodgates to WP links, but it does not mean we will go ahead and allow the policy to be ignored every time someone considers something notable. Texugo (talk) 18:35, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately, what you're doing with this long string of mass updates, content-removal edits to multiple unrelated articles, really shouldn't be done without obtaining some sort of consensus first, much like we don't let robot scripts run amok on the site without prior authorisation. K7L (talk) 03:44, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
I beg to differ. What I am doing has already been backed by consensus for over a decade. It is a long standing policy, to which there have never been consensus-backed exceptions, being enforced in exactly the same way we have always enforced it. Since it's a well-established policy, it doesn't really matter if I do one edit, or a string of 10, or a string of 60, no more than it would if I did a string of 60 edits fixing headers or weeding out montages or changing first person. Lots of us go on such maintenance sprees. We don't need to get a new consensus to enforce an established policy just because someone now doesn't want it do be enforced. If anything needs consensus, it would be allowing an exception for one or more of those links to stay. Texugo (talk) 11:08, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
There is not consensus, there is deadlock... and no, a mass update of some huge number of articles is a very different beast from manually editing one page. K7L (talk) 16:54, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but you really don't have any leg to stand on here. WV:External links#What not to link to explicitly lists other-topic Wikipedia links as something to be avoided. The External link usage further down that same page reiterates that listing and in-article links should point only to primary sources, which WP obviously is not. And if that weren't enough, WV:Links to Wikipedia specifically says "The External links guidelines do not permit links from Wikivoyage articles in the Main namespace (travel articles) to Wikipedia articles (except in the "Related sites" menu), as they are not primary sources.". There is no ambiguity about it; it is more than clear that we do not allow them, and the policy and practice have stood solidly as such for over a decade. My correction of extant issues merits no more controversy than everyday spelling corrections or section heading standardization, and it doesn't matter whether those are done individually or serially because they are fully sanctioned by existing written policy. The only deadlock is the standstill on the proposal to start allowing them. But that won't affect current policy or practice until after any such consensus for change is reached.

Ghana regions[edit]

Thanks Texugo I will do as you say--Rberchie (talk) 13:26, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Northwest Ohio[edit]

See you are trimming listing in Ohio. Would appreciate your input on Talk:Ohio#Counties - still a good idea?, the whole structure of the state is a bit of a mess. --Traveler100 (talk) 14:23, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Traveler100. Yeah, actually I started that thread, about a year ago. Time to take another look. Texugo (talk) 14:34, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Hot dog[edit]

In New York, "hot dog," "weiner" and "frankfurter" are used interchangeably. The word refers only to the sausage, not the bun, but normally, when you say you ate weiners or what have you, people would assume you had them on a bun. Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:44, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ikan Kekek. That must be a regional usage then. If anyone said to me "I ate a wiener" or "I ate a frankfurter", I would totally assume they must mean without a bun; otherwise they'd have said "hot dog". On the other hand, would anybody in New York or anywhere else ever say "I ate a hot dog" to specifically mean they ate only a sausage with no bun? I have a hard time imagining that. Texugo (talk) 11:15, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, it's possible, though it's usually assumed that you probably had it with a bun. Same thing with "I ate a hamburger". But which one is a regional usage? I don't know enough about usage in every other part of the country to know, as I never asked anyone about this question. Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:44, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Not sure either. But in any case, it doesn't seem that mentioning frankfurter and wiener as alternative names for the sausage itself (my edit) should raise any eyebrows, while mentioning them as alternative names for the whole sandwich (the previous wording) is sure to.

Move Nordic Countries to Nordic countries[edit]

At Talk:Nordic Countries there seems to be consensus that the capital C should go, but the move needs admin privileges. Can you go ahead? /Yvwv (talk) 00:16, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yvwv. Thanks for the reminder. I took care of it. Texugo (talk) 23:30, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

On Creating A Wikivoyage Account To Take Credit For Pages I Made[edit]

Dear Texugo, My name is Naoki and I'm an 18 year old Japanese boy who's been browsing Wikivoyage since 2013. Overtime, I created the Manchu and Kalmyk phrasebooks and since last year (when I started to put much more effort into my Kalmyk studies), I've been making frequent additions to the Kalmyk phrasebook page. Today, I received a notification after my latest edit to the Kalmyk phrasebook describing the benefits of creating a Wikivoyage account (the page was titled "Why Register?") and the one that stood out to me was getting credit for pages I create. I apologize for disturbing you but regarding this, I have a couple of questions and as an administer you seemed to be the right person to ask: If I create a Wikivoyage account, can I immediately take credit for the Manchu and Kalmyk phrasebook pages? Also, is there an obligation that I create/edit many pages/can I stick to refining the Kalmyk phrasebook? I await your reply, Sincerely, Naoki

P.S. This is my first time using a Wikivoyage user's talk page so I may not notice a reply immediately (though I'll be sure to check frequently). I apologize in advance if I don't notice your reply immediately.

Getting Started[edit]

Dear Texugo, This is Naoki from the previous post. I apologize for this late reply but I have finally managed to find time to create a Wikivoyage account. I apologize if this is against the rules but I have just created my account and I can't find any guidelines on communicating with other users (apart from leaving comments on Talk Pages) so I would just like to ask, what exactly should I be working on now that I created my account? Is it enough that I simply create a profile and then resume work on the Kalmyk and Manchu Phrasebooks?

I await your reply

Technical doubt - jcarousel[edit]


I'm creating a new Wiki and I'll really want to know how did you install the jcarousel slider on your site. Will be pleased with your response, email or whathever.

Thank you and regards.


dobrý den, co delate

Long Time No See[edit]

Hey brother! We all miss you. Please be alive...please let us know. Ibaman (talk) 19:50, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ibaman! Still alive here. Sorry to disappear. I just had a drastic reduction in the time I had free to devote to this project, so I've been on hiatus, but things are changing again, so I may be more active soon. Take care! Texugo (talk) 21:42, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Glad to hear from you. Hope you can make it...em português especialmente, é dureza sem você lá. Abraços Ibaman (talk) 23:35, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
