Hello there!! I would like to ask you a question. A couple of hours ago I added a listing in the section of Athens, Greece, Do (http://wikitravel.org/en/Athens#Do). Although in the beginning I could view it, it seems as if it has been deleted somehow. Is that possible? Did I do something wrong or does it take some time until a listing is appeared due to approval by you? What shall I do, shall I try posting it again? Thank you Regards

Hi! Thanks for your questions. I am here to help! Your edit was deleted because it was considered as touting. You used first person pronouns. Please feel free to rewrite it and put it back. Do you know how? Please go to the Athens page and click on View History to get access to your edit. I hope that this helps. Business owners are welcomed to share information that helps others in their travels however they should adhere strictly to our policies and guidance. If you have more questions, please feel free to contact me. Cheers! IBAlex 15:15, 7 March 2013 (EST)

Hello there again! I tried contacting uses Wikipedaras as you suggested, but he hasnt replied. Do you have any idea why ??


Hello again! Thank you so much for your reply! I was really confused of what happened! I will look into it again and posting it with no touts. Is it possible to first send it to you so as for you to revise it and let me know if it is fine? Athens Insiders 15:22, 7 March 2013 (EST)

Sure! Would be great! Thank you for your cooperation and understanding:) IBAlex 15:25, 7 March 2013 (EST)

Your help is much appreciated!! :) :) Will do that as soon as possible! Athens Insiders 15:27, 7 March 2013 (EST)

I am back!!! I have reviewed your guidelines and have changed our text... could you have a look at it and tell me if it fits your guidelines and if not what need to be altered??? Thank you SO very much... Here it is: A different way to discover the multiple faces and the little known treasures of Athens through the eyes of a local. Gain a real sense of the city and get first hand insights on a private and tailor-made walking experience off the beaten track. You can choose from unique themed tours or just design your unique itinerary! Athens Insiders 16:59, 7 March 2013 (EST)

Hi! I have checked your website and I would suggest something like that:

Athens Insiders, +30 6975545854, [1]. Private and tailor-made walking tours off the beaten track. You can choose from unique themed tours ( Flavours of Athens, Photo Safari, Nature and Landscape, Athens Nightlife) or just design your unique itinerary. Tours are given by independent group of locals who speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German. Duration:about 4h 90-180 euros/ group.  edit

This listing is more informative and benefits the Traveler better. The previous ones you suggested sounded a little bit promotional.
You can use Add listing box or put the listing manually using the following wiki markup:

* <do name="Athens Insiders" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="+30 6975545854" email="" fax="" url="http://www.athensinsiders.com/" hours="duration about 4h" price="90-180 euros/ group">Private and tailor-made walking tours off the beaten track. You can choose from unique themed tours ( Flavours of Athens, Photo Safari, Nature and Landscape, Athens Nightlife) or just design your unique itinerary. Tours are given by independent group of locals who speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German. </do>

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need some help. I wish you good luck with Athens Insiders:) Would be great to see your contributions on the Athens page! I'm sure you have lots of valuable local insights! Cheers! IBAlex 20:25, 8 March 2013 (EST)

Hello!!!! hope you are doing good. Thank you so much for your suggestion. So I decided to keep it as it you proposed: Private and tailor-made walking tours off the beaten track. You can choose from unique themed tours (Flavours of Athens, Photo Safari, Athens Nightlife) or just design your unique itinerary. Tours are given by independent group of locals who speak English, Spanish and French.

Since at the end of March our final site will be released and we will be featuring more products, is it possible to edit my text and include some more product descriptions? 94.68.228.16 05:28, 11 March 2013 (EDT)

Hello there my dear Alex! hope all is well I just logged on to wikitravel and the section of Athens, and although we had made a post about us in the section do for some reason which I cannot understand it doesnt appear anymore? What happened? Did you delete all the listings? Thank you

Hello! Thank you for your message! I have revised the history of changes to Athens article and I noticed that you listing was reverted by User: Wikipedaras who said that the listing doesn't point to primary sources of information. If you still wish your listing to be on Athens page, please get in touch with user Wikipedaras and together we will have to reach a community decision if we should put it there or now. I suggest using Athens Talk Page for that. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 19:10, 20 June 2013 (EDT)

Hello there Aex, I contacted user Wikipedaras as you suggested but I havent got a reply, do you know why, or what else I could do?!?
