Since I just http://www.fenspace.net/index.php5?title=Yuu_Inagawa]unstubbed a page, It's time for another entry in the Fenwiki Destub Project... This time, Fenspace's professional tour guides. Here's http://www.fenspace.net/index.php5?title=Gondolier]the article as it currently stands:

Quote:{{stub}}
'''Gondolier''': General description for the sort of easy-going, likable Fen who are naturals at playing tour guides around the Solar System. Those with the best reputation and presence are known as '''Undines''' (especially on [[Mars]).

The term "gondolier" comes from the tour guides of Venice, on [[Earth]. The term "undine" as an expert gondolier comes from a single work of Japanese fiction, embraced by Fen who've never heard of [%[link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aria_%28manga%29]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aria_(manga)] the source stories].

No mention of http://www.fenspace.net/index.php5?titl ... h_Corcoran]Joe Corcoran or the http://www.fenspace.net/index.php5?title=Pinafore]Pinafore, no mention of Aria Field on http://www.fenspace.net/index.php5?title=Titan]Titan or Okar Guide Services and Orange Planet in http://www.fenspace.net/index.php5?title=Helium]Helium, the first sentence isn't even a proper sentence... and that's just the problems I know about. This article could use some work. Anybody up to adding to it?

Nobody?

(Y'know, the more of these I have to write myself, the longer it'll be before LoGG is finished. Just saying...)

I will see that I look at it over the weekend, but I am still looking for ideas...
Some little bit added to the Gondolier article.

them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.''

Anyway, just added some stuff on destinations and fixed the first paragraph (which fwiw was pulled straight from the glossary).

I think we can DeStub the article now...
Done, along with some minor editing.

I know - I'm the one who pulled it out of the Glossary.

I've added a few crosslinks and tightened up the formatting - I think it's up to the standard we've set for a "proper" FenWiki article now. (Now to pick another stub... okay, I'll wait until the weekend.)
