Talk:gold coast – wikitravel


Not long ago, I removed all of the descriptive text in the listing of vehicle rental companies. The written text was all touting through the various companies, mostly that they are the least expensive, most dependable, best service, or rented cars for really unattainable rates. There wasn’t any help to the traveler or any one of it, and that i thought best just to achieve the rental vehicle company names, and so the traveler compares themselves. For the time being, I am going always keep these listings clean. Anyone who has much better ideas, don’t hesitate to discuss. –Inas 20:23, 6 The month of january 2009 (EST)


Districts, Metropolitan areas & Towns

Right now, the Gold Coast is not an area – its a town. You will find separate articles for Surfers Paradise as well as for Tweed Heads, due to the density of accommodation and attractions there. However there is not another article for each suburb, like Robina, Sourhport, etc. Many of these areas go within the primary article. If you feel this will change, please discuss here. Thanks. –Inas 00:56, 21 The month of january 2009 (EST)

See Also

We do not have “See Also” links in articles, begin to see the Wikitravel:Manual of fashion. That kind of stuff usually gets into the “EscapeInch section, and that’s why I moved it there. –Inas 01:00, 21 The month of january 2009 (EST)

Edit Problem (bug)

There’s an issue editing this site, simply adding just one character.

When saving, an edit conflict page seems, mentioning The page you desired in order to save was blocked through the junk e-mail filter. This really is most likely the result of a connect to an exterior Site. Something related to “X mas” (with no space inside)

Doesnt occur on other pages I edited (Whew!, nothing related to me).

–Advanstra 03:00, 21 Feb 2009 (EST)

Fixed the issue, removed all references towards the four letter word beginning with X and also the page saves properly. Don’t make use of the word “X mas” (with no space inside) in the following paragraphs, the junk e-mail filter doesn enjoy it for reasons uknown.–Advanstra 03:09, 21 Feb 2009 (EST)

hondus brahms: I think I’ll put Tasmania on my top three list of places to move once I’m independently wealthy 🙂 (or if my skills as a physician are needed).  How would a normal guy and his family find it in Tasmania?  Would they be welcome?  Or is Tasmania like many uniquely beautiful places where the residents don’t want any more people?  I’ve read of some social problems in Tasmania – poverty etc.  – is it a big problem?  Doesn’t seem so from the video.

fidomusic: I’ve been to Tasmania three times, and love the place. This is an excellent documentary.

dvchel: A very beautiful documentary! When are you going to upload the rest of your travel in Tasmania?
