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.

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)

Prehistory vs History[edit]

To connect the stone age with any city is questionable. I suggest history to begin with first mentioning or any formal matters. The article scope should be limited to the city itself. The pre-history belonges elsewhere. Boeing720 (talk) 11:36, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Gallery[edit]

The gallery section needs to be changed or removed, it currently is just a random mix of pictures, some not even of Stockholm (such as Utö church). I would suggest that is removed all together, since the article already has good pictures. What do you others say? Yakikaki (talk) 08:27, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

I agree. Any pictures that are truly worthwhile could be incorporated better into the article. GetSomeUtah (talk) 23:25, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
