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.
Thank you for contributing to Barry. Before you go on, please read our external links policy about what should and should not be linked to, and why. The links you provided about Visit Cardiff, though well intentioned, are better placed as a single link to Cardiff in the Get out section, or even better placed in the Cardiff article itself, though it would be best if the information, not the link, was here in Wikitravel. - Huttite 14:21, 7 February 2009 (EST)
Spelling mistakes in article names
If you make a spelling mistake in the title of an article, as you did with Petrston-Super-Ely, which should be spelt Peterston-Super-Ely, then you can either move the page, if there is no existing article, or redirect the page, if another article already exists. In this case, I redirected the page for you. - Huttite 12:28, 14 February 2009 (EST)
Vale of Glamorgan articles
Your enthusiasm for the Vale of Glamorgan seems to know no bounds! This is a good thing. However please consider if every town, village and place in the Vale justifies an article of its own. A good test for having a separate article is - Can I hire accommodation there to sleep a night? - If you can then make the article. If you cannot then please think carefully about creating it. - Huttite 12:28, 14 February 2009 (EST)
Follow article templates
Please use and follow the Wikitravel article templates. When you create a new article, choose one of the possible templates from the list at the top of the editing form. Please do not drop sections from these templates for a destination because it is not relevant. As a minimum an article must have the following sections:
If you cannot justify those 5 sections, as a minimum, then the location is an attraction, rather than a destination, and should be described in another article. Thus if a village has a pub on the corner and a couple of houses on each street, it only becomes a destination if the pub has bar meals and a bedroom (even if it is the stable) that you can hire by the night, or one of the houses lets out its rooms as a bed and breakfast.
Also, please do not add sections without checking for the standard names for sections first. If you must add a sction, make it a sub-section by putting extra = signs in the section heading, so it drops down into one of the template sections rather than being a new section of its own. - Huttite 12:28, 14 February 2009 (EST)
I note that you have created an article for the village of Peterston-Super-Ely but have not used all of the Small city article template. Since it lacks a Sleep section, this suggests that there is a problem with the village being large enough to justify an article of its own. - Huttite 12:28, 14 February 2009 (EST)
The Bristol Channel is a body of water and since you cannot sleep there, unless you want to get wet and drown, we don't normally create destinations for such geographical features. If you want to dispute my opinion please discuss this at Talk:Bristol Channel, as the article could be turned into a region based on a body of water, such as the Bay of Fundy article (that you linked to!) about a New Brunswick, Canada, region. If you then still disagree with the Wikitravel policy, then that should be discussed at Wikitravel talk:Bodies of water. - Huttite 10:56, 14 February 2009 (EST)
