|To-do list for Stockholm:|
From the old /Todo page:
History: A LOT of work to be done. 750 years worth, on or about.
- Nice places to visit is "us video" one of scandinavias best video stores
- There`s a very nice gay community in stockholm. Most of the guys meet in a boat called "Patricia" in the sundays just to have a good meal or o good time.
seem to me not useful additions. I took them (or something similar) out earlier today, but they've found their way back in in slightly different forms. The first statement is at best completely un-NPOV and the second also looks very dodgy. Something like "Stockholm has a vibrant gay community" or whatever would be OK if true, but I don't know if it is true, so can't really edit the above. So I'm taking it out again. --Camembert
I selected the Random Page link, which brought up the article on Stockholm. I am a new user and hope you do not mind my comments. I have not been to Stockholm, but the gay aspect interested me, given the comment that was inserted and deleted. I reviewed the attached Stockholm Visitors Board (http://www.stockholmtown.com/) - The official visitors' guide, which is a link on the page. It has a section on gays, which is informative on the subject. Under cafes it does list the Patricia. Sorry, didn't know it would not enter my member name automatically - rickeyjay.
Somebody anon. added Nackasändaren among sites of interest. It is really just a couple of steel radio masts in the middle of the forest. If you're into that kind of thing, I suppose it might be of some interest, but it hardly justifies a place in this list. Kaknästornet is a TV tower of little interest in itself, but it has a good view of Stockholm from the top. / up◦land 13:53, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Please stop using www.stockholmtown.com as source
- You are probably right, but please don't just remove sourced information without providing good sources (or add unsourced information like you did in Copenhagen). I reverted you edits in Stockholm.

Some data in the table is evident wrong (i.e. -67 on January as a record low and 79 on July as a high), but I can find the original source to correct them. Can anyone do that? Tanonero (talk) 12:23, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
Vandalism to the climate section
IP number 220.127.116.11 and recently 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 has been messing up the climate section by changing the numbers concerning the temperature. FYI 126.96.36.199 user has messed up this article many times and nobody has reacted. I have no tools to change it back since the vandal has made the changes in many edits.
Could someone (admin) please block these vandals and change it back to the correct version, which is from between 22 july and 7 august.
Done It took me a while to find the new link to the NOAA source but finally, I have restored the sourced data (I removed the WMO source because it rounds temperatures to the nearest degree instead of the nearest tenth of the degree in the HKO source. Ssbbplayer (talk) 04:24, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
The "Venice of the North" again
The old "Venice of the North" advertising phrase keeps creeping into the lead section, this time sourced to CNN.com/travel. If you read the text of the source, not just the headline, you'll see where the CNN reporter gets the phrase: from his/her guidebook. A guidebook isn't a reliable source, not even if a CNN reporter is quoting it. It's true that the Stockholm tourist industry and the Chamber of Commerce and perhaps — not sure about that — also Stadshuset would like Stockholm to be "sometimes referred to" as the Venice of the North, but that doesn't make it so. "Sometimes"? It's only referred to as the Venice of the North in travel brochures, guidebooks, and other texts that promote commercial interests. It's far from being a genuine nickname. All Swedes have heard the phrase? (Several people state that they've heard the phrase plenty of times in a 2006 thread above. But the point is, who have they heard it from? A tourist guide, right?) It's all over the internet? Yes, of course. There's a whole universe of commercial promotion all over the internet, as well as lodged inside our heads. An encyclopedia article shouldn't be decorated with that kind of bling. I've removed it. Bishonen | talk 15:32, 2 February 2014 (UTC).
- Well, I first encountered it in an adventure book from the 1950s :-) It is used now and then (not in English, but in Swedish - Nordens Venedig), but I would not say that it's a frequent enough nickname that it belongs in the Wikipedia article. Good removal. --bonadea contributions talk 16:17, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
