Untitled[edit]

Me and friends went there recently, from Negros. The boat from Cadiz apparently stopped years ago; there's a daily pumpboat from Sagay though. I'll fix the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 118.90.95.84 (talk) 09:17, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Mixed entries[edit]

There seems to be a lot of confusion here between what is Bantayan the island and what is Bantayan the municipality. A lot of the content on the municipality page should be here, such as language derivation, island history and geography etc. Either the two pages should be merged or properly separated. I propose working on the latter, which means moving a lot of that info off the municpality page and onto this one. In addition I want to incorporate a lot more detail onto the municipality page (mainly).

The islands around[edit]

Anyone know what the surrounding islands are? I commented some of the list out, because I have a 1:250000 sea chart and I can't see them all. I think the best classification would be inhabited (if there are any) V uninhabited. Some of the places with names are probably little more than a muddy pebble.

  1. I don't know how to make a proper citation for reference 4, in Language section. This is both a printed book and an identical website.
  2. Would now be a good time to remove the no-references tag?
  3. Also, I don't consider this still a stub.
Johnmperry (talk) 11:35, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
I corrected the cite format for #4. It is a book primarily, the fact that it has a website version only helps in linking to the book as a convenience link. I changed the no ref tag to refimprove. It still needs many more references. I believe you are correct in that this isn't a stub anymore. However, I will only upgrade it to a start class. It will need many more references to go further than that, I think. Thank you for your work. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 18:47, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Expanding book cites with page numbers[edit]

There are several footnotes which have referred to book titles (or volumes) but have not specified the page numbers to read. Some of those books can be found online and, perhaps, searched for the related text, to get more page numbers to insert into the cites. -Wikid77 (talk) 16:52, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Bantayan IslandBantayan – The island is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC for the term Bantayan based on google books results and actual wikiarticle page views, where the municipality Bantayan, Cebu just covers one third of the island. No disambiguation page needed either as the two articles are related. RioHondo (talk) 14:23, 11 November 2015 (UTC) Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 12:16, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment There are more than two topics, two other articles covers topics called "Bantayan", so if this is the primary topic, the disambiguation page will need to still exist. -- 70.51.44.60 (talk) 07:01, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The island may be primary topic, but not overwhelmingly so as to warrant a move. Moreover, this move will likely blur the distinction between the island and the muncipality. -- P 1 9 9   17:21, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I just want 'Island' like other islands, 'municipality' like other municipalities.
    (The islands of Bantayan are basically on the east to Santa Fe and the west are to Bantayan municipality, except Patao in Madridejos. And the largest "other" island, Guintacan (Kinatarkan) is geographically not in an island of Islands of Bantayan.) – Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Mon 06:43, wikitime= 22:43, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
