Hello, PeterB !
Thank you for your interesting contributions to our Broken Hill article!
To help you contribute, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and our house style as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page.
However, even more important than following every guideline is to PLUNGE FORWARD and write something useful – someone might be along to help with the proper formatting later if we're both lucky...
Add your home town, or a place you know well or write some insider tips - but don't use first person pronouns.
It was a good idea to create your own user account on Wikitravel because it will now provide you various benefits:
- easier communication with other writers about your edits and travel tips via your very own User Talk Page
- choose to turn off advertising or Orbitz (in your Account Settings)
- credit for your travel writing and edits, which will all be attributed to you rather than just an IP address
- your contributions will become more trusted as you become familiar to other Wikitravellers as a frequent editor with a history they can check
First of all, thank you for creating the page for Forbes! Highly appreciated, but there was one thing I needed to message you about. I noticed when going trough the edit that you had used a lot of information that was copied from various sources, and on Wikitravel, you can not use copied content. It has to be your own, original content. Anyhow thank you for contributing this far, let me know if there is anything I can be of assistance with! --OVK (talk) 05:05, 19 May 2013 (EDT)
