Needs a tidy upEdit

Currently Norfolk Island is a Region article (with a fair number of listings) and then two town articles underneath.

My instinct is to merge the town articles back up to the top, since the size of this island is not large anyway. The distinction between the two towns doesn't seem that important.

I'll see if any comments come through next few days. --Andrewssi2 (talk) 23:08, 21 May 2016 (UTC)[]

Melanasia or New South WalesEdit

Norfolk Island has had its autonomy reduced by the Australian government, and is now officially part of the state of New South Wales. Therefore, should we still list it as part of Melanasia, or should we now list it as part of New South Wales? The dog2 (talk) 23:56, 3 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Based on the information you provide above, I'd say that we should do the latter. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 00:26, 4 January 2019 (UTC)[]
Definitely New South Wales. Geologically it actually related more to New Zealand, but now politically a formal part of NSW. Andrewssi2 (talk) 00:45, 4 January 2019 (UTC)[]
It was mistakenly removed from NSW in this Diff earlier this year Andrewssi2 (talk) 00:48, 4 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Climate chartEdit

I'm glad to have one in the article, but it's confusing that it says "Precipitation+Snow". Of course, no snow amounts are shown, but the word is quite extraneous. Is there any way to delete it? Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:36, 13 December 2019 (UTC)[]

Not that I can see. Add it as a conversation in Template talk:Climate? --Joshlama1 (talk) 03:37, 13 December 2019 (UTC)[]

To do listEdit

I'm running out of things to do on this page. The only things I can really see to do are -

* Buy **Add 1-2 Specialty/Retail Shops (I don't really want to, as they seem fairly department-y rather than local nick-nacks. Wildwood or Niow are the only two that seem fairly interesting) **Add one more supply store (as some are open until 9pm) *Burnt Pine clubs - expand *Norfolk Island Data Services does have an internet cafe, so fleshing out their listing would be helpful. Done

  • Check to see if there are Connect or Cope listings?
  • There are newspapers, but they don't seem to be Touristy friendly. Most online ones are behind a paywall anyway.

What else? Joshlama1 (talk) 11:33, 13 December 2019 (UTC) Updated: Joshlama1 (talk) 04:32, 15 December 2019 (UTC)[]

Phone numbersEdit

At List of country calling codes I see "672 1" for Antarctica (Australian bases) and "672 3" for Norfolk Island. But there is no mention of "672 2", which is also used in the article. Should there be a correction in the List of country calling codes? There are always 5 digits after "672 3", but only 4 after "672 2". Also some clarification in the Connect section could be usefull. Should all phone numbers in the article be formatted te same way (for getting the Star status)? Maybe:

  • +672 3 xxxxx
  • +672 2 xxxx
  • +672 ? ????? for mobile numbers
