Matroc added a comment to T141335: Add maps support for marks with 3 digits.

Andyrom75 - I totally agree with you. We should have markers with at least 3 digits. Some of the article maps currently in Wikivoyage look terrible with so many 99 markers to say the least.
Not only would articles using my odd test approach be difficult to find when all is finally resolved later; it
would be difficult and counter intuitive for an average editor to figure out how to do this since he/she would need a deeper understanding of the templates, maps and the Kartographer extension in action.

A custom solution would be best and more than 99 allowed; however, a possible work around is available, but it is rather specialized and not very intuitive for the average editor. I actually broke up the markers and used the type, group and counter parameters. My temporary test is found at https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/User:Matroc/Animals_of_India which is a rehash of multiple vicinity markers numbering in the hundreds as found in https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/United_States_National_Parks. All the POIs can be found on the geo map and mapframe
There are nuances and tricky situations that arose while I looked at this - anyhow just a thought I would add this to the conversation.

Matroc added a comment to T137940: Migrate {{geo}} to use Wikidata coordinates.

When I check for WikiVoyage articles missing the geo template coordinates - I use a function in one of my Modules to add formatted coordinates from Wikidata using the Qnnnn (wikidata id) - I think Ryan also has such a function in the Listings Editor. The basic Lua Code is already available. I am thinking a javascript widget would also be in order as well but that is not in my box of tricks. - Cheers!

Matroc added a comment to T143734: Notify selected communities about <mapframe> view changes.

Hello:
I was wondering if would look better if the border was darker ie. border-style solid:border-width:2px
Just a thought...

Matroc added a comment to T140213: <maplink> and/or <mapframe>: Image size is not fitted to the width of the marker tool tip window.

note: I use <maplink> and <mapframe> with images set to 280px... Yes there is an issue in that the image goes beyond the div... I usually add the image name in the description field. I recently discovered that if I add text after the image in the description field - everything fits nicely (margins etc.). One caveat is that the text should be more than 10-15 characters. See India map with several cities on enwikivoyage Traveller's Pub which I recently edited. Perhaps this may provide a clue to resolving issue.

@LtPowers -- Thanks for answering question - Spanish and French Wikivoyage use the elephant image... I noted the change to the English Wikivoyage India banner as occurring in October of 2013 as well.
@Jdlrobson -- Wikidata does have one property for banner.

I made a Lua module to retrieve the banner name from Wikidata which I used as an argument for the existing wikivoyage pagebanner template as a test to investigate some things, I found with India (Q668) that:

This is an interesting idea and worth pursuing IMHO... It appears that the banner (P948) is the main point of discussion; however, there are other properties available that may be useful as well... Definitely there will be some banners that editors will not want that may be found in Wikidata, so some options may be necessary as well as any default banners to display... I am not sure but it comes to mind that an issue with disambiguation pages and some page mismatches may occur as well...
