Commonwealth (or British) English spelling[edit]

Per our varieties of English policy this article should use consistent Commonwealth (or British) English spelling throughout. This is not for neo-colonial reasons, but to avoid unproductive edit wars.

Don't worry if you don't know the difference or your spelling is poor - that's just one of the advantages of Wiki editing - someone should soon come along to assist! --W. Franke-mailtalk 15:27, 3 October 2012 (EDT)

Amman Bus stations[edit]

Made an effort to distinguised the stations and the services they provide using info from tourist guide(link provided). However i am not changing anything from previous contributions have been made. Helped needed, mostly on the fairs of serviced taxi in routes outside the capital. Official JEET website has some routes and prices also with timetables in the bus routes to other cities.--Dimitrish81 18:25, 16 September 2012 (EDT)

Thanks for your sterling efforts, Dimitrish81 - what a pity that you were not logged on (or had not created your user account yet) when you made all those edits.
Plunge forward! --W. Franke-mailtalk 18:57, 16 September 2012 (EDT)

Correct, i didnt have an account yet Frank. So changes are valid only if you have an account? New in these stuff :)--Dimitrish81 04:10, 17 September 2012 (EDT)

I did a logged in attempt, providing and the source of the info, hope its ok now.--Dimitrish81 04:42, 17 September 2012 (EDT)

The thing is: you cannot just copy the contents from another webpage. In your case Rough Guides owns this content, so it is illegal to simply copy it to Wikitravel whose contents may be freely used. The way to go here is to collect the information yourself (i.e. from experience or official bus websites etc.) and write an independent text. rumpeltux 06:49, 23 September 2012 (EDT)

I will be there in end of November so i will certainly bring my experience and anything notable. Yes the source is there, i didnt try to rephrase something, it is a very comprehensive guide, i think that clears the complexity of Amman bus stations. I must say that the written are accurate because i research the travel way due to the use of extensive public transport i will make in my upcoming trip--Dimitrish81 07:42, 23 September 2012 (EDT).

That would be terrific, Dimitrish81. Please make sure you use your own words (or obtain the permission of the copyright owner) though! --W. Franke-mailtalk 08:30, 23 September 2012 (EDT)

The part of information i pasted is free of read and i am providing a direct link of this in the head of my notes.--Dimitrish81 07:45, 23 September 2012 (EDT)

Came back from ny trip to Jordan and already made some updates in price changes and info--Dimitrish81 04:31, 12 December 2012 (EST)
