Gold Coast[edit]

Swept in from the pub

Gold Coast was just linked to by the official Wikipedia Facebook page. Keep an eye on it as traffic may increase for a bit. LtPowers (talk) 23:03, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

They've tweeted as well and they often tweet about our article. --Saqib (talk) 06:49, 13 September 2013 (UTC)


I noticed Surfers_Paradise and other districts of Gold Coast are listed as separate towns. Should they not be districts of this article? Andrewssi2 (talk) 05:53, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Only if there's overlap. If this article covers the city proper while the other articles cover suburbs, then it's fine the way it is (though perhaps the links should be moved to "Get out". Powers (talk) 19:58, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
I saw this a bit late. To be clear the suburbs are inside the city of Gold Coast proper. --Andrewssi2 (talk) 21:47, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Replacement banner[edit]

Existing banner
Proposed banner

The existing banner is of rather low quality and appears to have been taken through a window. I have created a replacement of almost the same view with a higher quality source.

Any objections to replace? --Andrewssi2 (talk) 21:50, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

I think replacing should be non-controversial... --Andrewssi2 (talk) 08:39, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. The second image is clearer. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:56, 5 November 2015 (UTC)


I'm trying to import this into the article from Wikipedia, but it won't work. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? File:2018 Commonwealth Games.svg Ground Zero (talk) 04:05, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Pictures need to be on Commons, links to any other project don't work. However, the logo may not be uploaded to Commons as it's copyrighted, therefore you must upload it locally to Wikivoyage if you want to use it in an article here. So save it from WP to your computer, then come back to WV, click on upload file in the left sidebar and follow the instructions. And when uploading it here, you need to add a disclaimer similar to the one in the file's summary section on Wikipedia. ϒpsilon (talk) 05:39, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Ypsilon, thank you for this. I only have a phone for the next few weeks, but I'll try this when I'm home. Regards, Ground Zero (talk) 13:01, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
It might be technically possible to do it with a phone (or tablet) too, but at least I don't have the nerves to try to edit with anything that has only a touchscreen :). ϒpsilon (talk) 16:22, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
It probably is possible, but I think it can wait for a few weeks to preserve my mental health. Cheers. Ground Zero (talk) 13:30, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Done. Thank you for your very helpful instructions. I'm not a techy person, so they were invaluable. Ground Zero (talk) 12:46, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
