Removed two useless tourism links (dolomiten.suedtirol.com & selvadicadore.biz) not even providing usefull information like maps or pictures).
Would also be nice if someone could find a map locating the Dolomites on the Italian/European map.

dolomite not a type of limestone
I made a minor edit changing "...dolomite, a type of limestone..." to "...dolomite, a type of carbonate rock..." as dolomite definately is not a type of limestone, that is why it is called dolomite and not limestone (although there are "dolomitic limestones." Jay Gregg 18:11, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
Dolomite is a type of carbonate rock, but more to the point, it is an ancient coral reef. This interesting fact should be included. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:20, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Needs more work
This is a very weak article at the moment. It is little more than two large tables. It would be nice if we could expand it to include more information on the history, culture etc of the region. The Dolomites is a fascinating region. It deserves a better article.
- I agree. To improve this article, please see the Italian one and, if you can, translate it. --Gazal Cotre (talk) 11:19, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Needs new photo
I have added a link to an external map. Take a look at it and let me know if you think it should be deleted. Mrslippery 23:04, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
The panoramic photo with a view from Plan de Corones is not showing almost any dolomite peak. Most of the mountains in that photo are part of the Zillertal alps, on the border between Austria and Italy. Plan de Corones is on the norther part of dolomites region, facing nortern boarder of Pustertal.
I would recommend to show a photo made from a more central position in the dolomites region. For example from Marmolada peak or, even better, from Lagazuoi peak (where it's possible to see all major dolomite peaks).
Marmolada and Dolomites
Marmolada is not made of dolomite stone, so it is not representative of the 'true' Dolomites (Dolomia-made mountians) although it is often called 'the queen of the Dolomites':, we need another picture. --Gazal Cotre (talk) 23:07, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
The article contained (and will contain) two external links under the journal title "Eclectica." It does not call itself a journal, but a blog. It is written in the first person. It isn't really a blog, either. There is no discussion. I'm reminded of some links to Italy which call themselves "Tourist Sites" but are not that in the English sense. Instead they contain very scholarly, encyclopedic articles. This non-blog is similar. The articles referenced are excellent and contain some very enlightening photographs. I took the first one out but after reading the second I'm changing my mind. This was not published in a book but could have been. It contains first-person narrative but then so do many WP sources. Its own references are minimal. This is the author's direct observations. As long as HE does not put that on WP I think that is allowed. I don't know what to do with these informative and it seems to me encyclopedic articles. My inclination right now is to keep them. I will put the other one back, but they must be in proper format. If anyone has an objection or an opinion, please do weigh in, except for the author of the articles. Author, whoever you are, your assertions are not allowed. You can't put your own material in. Sometimes there are marginal cases and I think this is one of them. But this is my opinion.Dave (talk) 06:51, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
