To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub.
Thanks for your contributions, but please have a look at shared:Copyleft - it is a violation of copyright law to take images from other web sites and put them on Wikitravel. The Copyleft page explains the few cases where an image may be re-used on Wikitravel, otherwise only original images that you created should be uploaded here. -- Ryan • (talk) • 23:42, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
