Climate for Kuwait?![edit]

Why is the climate information based on Kuwait Airport in Kuwait City? The entire climate graphics and chart must be redone. In the meantime, I'm removing the climate chart and editing the data. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.172.215.94 (talk) 19:39, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, I updated the data myself. Everything should now be accurate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.172.215.94 (talk) 19:54, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Coffee[edit]

I'm not sure that Arabic Coffee is a good image for Doha. I'm suggesting it be removed after a week if I don't get any other comments --Matt 04:48, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Expansion request[edit]

This is no longer a stub, but should probably continue to be expanded. -- Beland 17:20, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

I expanded the article a lot, and have added many new sections - I just completed a section on transport in Doha. Are there any other sections we could possibly add to the article? Amjra 20:10, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:RayyanInterchange.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:RayyanInterchange.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

demographics[edit]

some info here belongs under qatar not doha. Population seems either wrong or contradictory (refer to cited article). Is it Qatar's or Doha's population that nears one million?--Aniish72 (talk) 13:27, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Not only is that particular peice of information incorrect, but the satement that suggests that Doha has an excellent road system, seriously, where did you compare it to? Some backwater villiage in the Amazon perhaps? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.211.181.103 (talk) 13:02, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

history[edit]

"some consider"? seriously are we still using weasel words? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.178.37.82 (talk) 20:57, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Article reads like an advert[edit]

If any city in the West effectively banned women, as does Doha, that would certainly be covered in the article. Why no mention of it here? Men and women cannot use the same shops at the same time. Why no mention of that? This article reads like a Qatari Travel Advert. It's certainly totally lacking in any remotely critical content. Goalsonly2 (talk) 19:19, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
