Welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a sec to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. 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.
Your comments that Wikitravel is not using the latest version of MediaWiki software are duly noted. Using the latest and greatest software is not the be all and end all for everyone. There are other priorities .... like a stable and well maintained wiki. -- Huttite 06:22, 28 Jul 2005 (EDT)
What is an article
Please see Wikitravel:What is an article? to see what kinda of articles we are looking for. I'd hate to see you spend your time on a Rapid Transit article only to find we don't usually have articles for rapid transit systems. If in doubt, try asking at Wikitravel talk:What is an article? -- Colin 00:04, 29 July 2006 (EDT)
