Hi Cybjorg! Glad to see you here, and welcome. Here's the sort of standard welcome message which has a bunch of useful links for folks coming over from Wikipedia. There are a number of things we do differently (for instance our articles mostly have a pretty definite structure). Anyhow here are the links:

As an American, I attempted to enter Syria from Jordan during a time when Syria wasn't too keen on United States. After visiting the Syrian embassy in Amman in order to acquire the proper visa, I was told by the Syrian consulate that I could purchase a visa at the border. Upon arrival at the border, however, the very unfriendly border control informed me that I should have purchased a visa at the embassy. After being made to wait for several hours, I finally went back to Amman. I plan to attempt entry again soon. - Cybjorg 01:23, 27 April 2006 (EDT)
Amazing map for the Old City! Please tell me you're making more for the other three quarters? Also, it would be nice if you could upload the original SVG file and list names of the numbered attractions in the map itself. Jpatokal 04:27, 27 April 2006 (EDT)
Incredibly amazing work on the Old City quarter maps and the whole district page! Any chance of you whipping the rest of the Jerusalem articles into similar shape? Jpatokal 10:52, 30 April 2006 (EDT)
Babel for Turkish and Arabic
I just added the Turkish templates, but Arabic is a little more complex -- Wikitravel's Babel code doesn't seem to do the right-to-left thing properly and the bolding is messed up too. You don't need to wait for intervention from a Power That Is though, just edit this and see what you can do... Jpatokal 06:31, 14 August 2006 (EDT)
Just been looking at the photos you've uploaded! They look pretty cool! Any chance you could upload photos to shared next time? That way people from other language versions can get at them as well. Thanks. -- Tim 06:37, 14 August 2006 (EDT)
