Moving the capital?Edit

BBC: Indonesia's planning minister announces capital city move. Not moving yet, but probably worth keeping an eye out for developments. Pashley (talk) 14:16, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

Yes, this has been on the cards for a long while now. Anyone who has visited Jakarta will know it could definitely use a lot less pressure (traffic, water usage, pollution, etc). It would also likely make it easier for visitors to check out the very interesting old city areas. Andrewssi2 (talk) 21:38, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

Edits by User:GsarwaEdit

Can someone fix User:Gsarwa's edits here and in other Indonesia articles, which tend to be in broken English when I read them? Thanks. TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 19:23, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

User talk:Gsarwa shows that the user's English ability has been an issue for several years now. There are only so many times you can ask someone to take some grammar lessons or to seek the help of a more proficient English speaker before posting. If I can understand the gist of what (s)he is writing, I am happy to copy-edit, but I will certainly not spend any time trying to decode what (s)he is trying to say in edits like this where it is not at all clear what is trying to be conveyed.--ThunderingTyphoons!

What Thundering said. I routinely revert edits by Gsarwa that are in terrible English. Gsarwa's English never gets one iota better, ever, no matter what. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:01, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Rupiah pricesEdit

I think we should agree on the correct way of noting rupiah values, as I see mixed usage of the comma and the period as separators between places. TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 19:56, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Actually, this has been discussed earlier at Wikivoyage talk:Currency/Archive 2014-2016#Indonesian Rupiah. --TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 23:38, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Tone of visa sectionEdit

Does anyone else feel that the tone of the immigration section is a bit harsh and sounds like it was written by someone with an agenda? Could someone who's familiar with the matter take a look and see how balanced it is and if it's in the interest of the traveler?
