Hello, Abi! Welcome to Wikitravel.

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.

Hi Abi! Thank you for your contributions but i had to revert some. We have a policy called Wikitravel:No_advice_from_Captain_Obvious that obvious facts in article are discouraged. Somalia is a dangerous country that is common knowlegde and we have a war zone safety article. Therefore the comment is not really needed. Please don't be discouraged and keep on contributing. jan 08:23, 16 March 2010 (EDT)

Hi Abi! Once again, please don't panic and enter warning boxes for Thailand and Greece. The troubles in Thailand are limited to Bangkok and there is a warning box already in place and Greece is still fine to visit (a colleague was there a week ago and everything was smooth).

North Caucasus[edit]

Hi Abi! Please avoid nonsense and redundancy. Our definition of North Caucasus includes Ingushetia and therefore doesn't need to listed again. Also to list Russia as a War zone is stupid as the country stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea. Please use common sense and not unbased stereotypes. Have a look at our regional structures and read details. Most of your work is already reverted. jan 05:59, 21 September 2010 (EDT)

Iceland[edit]

Could you comment on your most recent edit at Talk:Iceland#Political unrest? Are you basing this edit on personal experience, or some other source? -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:25, 31 March 2011 (EDT)

Risk level infoboxes[edit]

Hi - the last time the idea of "risk level" infoboxes was brought up the consensus was that they were too general and too subjective to be of much value. I can't find that discussion right now, but (for example) people questioned how you would classify crime in a place like Canada where it is non-existent in some rural areas and high in cities. If you'd like to re-open that discussion feel free to start a discussion in the Pub. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:16, 3 May 2011 (EDT)

This isn't the discussion I was thinking of, but there's a similar discussion at Talk:Stay safe#Risk evaluation box. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:21, 3 May 2011 (EDT)

Wikitravel pollution[edit]

Please stop polluting wikitravel with things you have read in the newspaper about how dangerous everything in the world is. It is not. Swissbelg 05:59, 27 July 2011 (EDT)
