I hope that nobody minds a little humor in memory of Douglas Adams.
Hello Ben! Welcome to Wikitravel.
I should probably let you know that we've seen the Earth page before, and have discussed it before. Most people feel it's a joke, and so last time it got deleted. It's up for discussion again on the Wikitravel:Votes for deletion page.
You should also make sure you understand our copyleft and policies and guidelines. Scanning the Manual of style, especially the article templates, can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted.
If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub or on the talk page for the most appropriate article. -- Mark 05:15, 21 Nov 2004 (EST)
