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

and

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.

Nackasändaren[edit]

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[edit]

This is not neutral information, and the homepage is made to attract tourists, not to provide accurate information. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.253.84.18 (talk)

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.

Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

N Archived sources still need to be checked

Confusion about climate classification[edit]

Using the -3 C cutoff for the coldest month of the year and the 22 C cutoff for the warmest month, Stockholm has a Cfb climate according to the table of monthly average temperatures in the article. If the 0 C cutoff is used instead for the coldest month, then the classification would change to Dfb. The article should note that and refer perhaps to Stockholm as being in an area of transition between a Cfb and a Dfb climate. 191.184.77.88 (talk) 10:11, 9 January 2016 (UTC)


Nick-names[edit]

Among nick-names "Capital of Scandinavia" is included. This is NOT a nick-name but a marketing slogan from the Stockholm Tourist Board. That is hardly a neutral source. And it is highly contested by other major Scandinavian cities. Therefore, I remove it Eskil S (talk) 11:09, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

You're absolutely right. Jeppiz (talk) 11:39, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
