Welcome to TravelAroundOz's talk page

This talk page is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in Australia or ask an enquiry about anything WikiVoyage related (whether it's about an article or anything really, just ask).

Before you ask your question here, consider going to the Tourist Office for travel related questions. Many questions Will be answered there. In addition, if it's anything Australian related, I'll also answer there.

This page is for travel-related questions and enquiries only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents but I will answer them or pass it onto an administrator to answer your question, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub. Also check out the tourist office

Answered questions will be moved to the Archives after six days of inactivity.

How can I get my question answered?

For personal enquiries

  • I generally don't mind if you use explicit language on my talk page but please try not to.
  • NO vandalism.
  • Please mind me if I call ya mate or use too much slang. I'm Aussie and I can't go 1 day without it.
  • For content I added, it is generally what I see with my own eyes or travel guides and not from websites like trip advisor or Airbnb. So bear with me if a stub is there like it is for a month or two.
  • Any errors on my COVID page. Enquire here, not there or fix it up yourself.
  • I don't mind if you call me TAO.
  • Please enter your question in Australian English due to the fact that it's where I'm from.

For travel related questions

  • Explain clearly what you want to know.
  • Provide a short heading that gives the general topic of the question.
  • Tell us what part of the world your question applies to.
  • Don't post questions that common sense or a search engine can answer in a couple of seconds. Ima not answer those questions.

Thanks for the Aussie barn compass. Australia is high on my list of places to visit when the world gets back to normal. If you haven't seen this already, I think it would be useful for you: Wikivoyage:Itinerary status shows the criteria for upgrading itinerary articles from stub to outline to usable to guide. Happy editing. Ground Zero (talk) 14:22, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

Thanks mate. I'll just have to wait till we get the Traveloca thing sorted out. TravelAroundOz (talk) 02:50, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
@Ground Zero: Additionally, are there too much images on Tourist Drive 33 or is it just fine. TravelAroundOz (talk) 04:11, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
Wikivoyage:Image policy says:
"Short articles (less than 3,000 bytes) should usually have no more than 1–2 images, including a map. For longer articles, 1 image per screen (1,000–2,000 bytes) is generally adequate."
You're easily within that guideline. I think it looks fine. Ground Zero (talk) 13:03, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
@Ground Zero: I guess I can have 18ish images since the article is 18k+ bytes. Cheers though, TravelAroundOz (talk) 11:27, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
I'd read that as 9-18, but 18 sounds like a lot of images. I don't think that would get advisable. We don't want our articles to burn through readers' mobile data. Ground Zero (talk) 12:17, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
I don't think I even have 12 images. TravelAroundOz (talk) 20:18, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
