Real problem with Conte di Cavour user and his misinformation[edit]

Is it possible to delete this user ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Julio188red (talkcontribs) 09:47, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

  • No, you cannot arbitrarily delete other people. His edits are fine, as he is cleaning up the clutter and pointless excess of images. This is a encyclopaedia, not a touristic ad. Newer sections go on the BOTTOM of the talk page. Fbergo (talk) 10:25, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

You are serious ?? You participate in disinformation.. This is your opinion and it is you who remove photos to postpone idiocy without interest. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Julio188red (talkcontribs) 11:00, 11 January 2017 (UTC) IT IS NOT YOU TO DECIDE or your boyfriend Conte di Cavour. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Julio188red (talkcontribs) 11:05, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

  • I am serious. This article is too long and already violates the size guidelines of WP:TOOBIG. The photo albums at the start of each section are a nuisance for readers on mobile devices. Editing should move in the direction of simplifiying it, not the contrary. This is the second time you make a personal attack on other editors, please read WP:PA.

Semi-protected edit request on 14 December 2016[edit]

In the Tourism Section of Italy before "With 50.7 million tourists a year (2015), Italy is the fifth most visited country in international tourism arrivals, and the sixth highest tourism earner in the world.[145] " I would like to add the following:

After the Italian unification there was a growing disparity of political development throughout Italy as well as a surge of mass tourism. To combat these political disparities, mass tourism was used as a way to implant “morality into politics” (Hom). In 1864 Thomas Cook, a British tour guide, led the first organized tour around Northern Italy, allowing many middle class citizens to, for the first time, tour the aesthetically pleasing Italy- once held as a privilege only the aristocrats could afford. Unlike the Grand Tour, a multiple year tour aimed at an aesthetic education of Italy taken by the aristocratic elite in the eighteenth century, Cook’s tour covered several thousand miles within days. This highlighted the fast-growing mass tourism of Italy. Not only did mass tourism allow the middle class to learn more about Italy and help with the division between classes, but it also aided in the fight for national unity. It was Cook’s hope that tourism would promote newfound understanding of other regions within Italy and thereby also promote national unity.

Too Long (Jan 2017)[edit]

This article is already too long, and I would recommend editors to refrain from ornamenting the article with unnecessary detail, notably about ancient history. We have already had a slow revert fight regarding the issue during the last few weeks. Please mind that when editing the article, or discuss here if you disagree. Fbergo (talk) 23:20, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

You're right sir, but instead of cutting short the article, there is currently an invasion of users that are spamming pictures and even more text. I tried to restore the situation and today I also summerized a bit the introduction. I would nevertheless recommend to delete at least the "Flora and Fauna" section that is way too much redundant. --Conte di Cavour (talk) 20:17, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
