Hello and welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a look at Welcome, business owners and Wikitravel:Don't tout.
Wikitravel is not meant to be a yellow pages, nor an advertising brochure, so please do not add listings for your business that have flowery, promotional language or that lack any useful information, in particular price ranges for rooms. Also do not list your listing more than once, and do not list it in a city other than the one it actually is in. Lastly, please do not include the city, state, and zip code in the address field. While yes, this is good for your search engine optimization, this is straightforwardly inappropriate on Wikitravel, since the article name should indicate what city it is in.
Edits that do not follow these guidelines will be reverted. --Peter Talk 15:51, 11 May 2009 (EDT)
- Tell you what. I'm assuming all you 122.169s are either the same person or the same group of people. Would you mind giving me the contact information for your supervisor? Since I just undo all your edits, whoever is paying for your work is clearly wasting their money. This does not need to be the case. There are good ways for hotel spammers to contribute to Wikitravel, and I have a lot of experience here and know how this could be done. We would both save time this way, your company would benefit, Wikitravel would benefit, all would be good. --Peter Talk 01:33, 12 May 2009 (EDT)
- Not sure all 122.169s, but certainly 22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199 is the from the same IP group, which belongs to an Indian IPS. http://whois.domaintools.com/188.8.131.52 gives more details. Nrms 01:52, 12 May 2009 (EDT)
- I have sent an email to the ISP regarding the spamming, but I certainly would prefer to handle this directly with those involved. --Peter Talk 02:07, 12 May 2009 (EDT)
