Hello Keeseckb! Welcome to Wikitravel. Thanks for plunging forward so far. If you're going to continue working on Wikitravel, you may find the tips for new contributors helpful. 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 Wikitravel:Jargon, 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.
Hi Keeseckb - I noticed you deleted a couple of notes from your talk page, which is not-uncommon for new users to do. While you're free to do what you like with your user and talk pages, it is generally considered proper etiquette to either leave conversations on your talk page or, if your page gets very long, to move them to an archive page such as User talk:Keeseckb/Archive. In that way people won't repeat the same questions and there is an archive of discussions so that people can see how decisions were made. If you were upset about what you perceieved as criticisms of the Bend article, please understand that we are simply trying to work with you and your classmates to integrate your (most appreciated) content into Wikitravel using accepted policies and guidelines.
If you would like to (and you don't have to, but it would be appreciated) you can retrieve the deleted conversations by viewing the "History" tab on this page, and then copying and pasting them back onto this talk page. If you have any questions you can leave a note here, on my talk page or in the Wikitravel:Travelers' pub. -- Ryan 00:12, 17 March 2006 (EST)
