Hello, PierrB! Welcome to Wikitravel.

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. IBAlex 17:38, 18 January 2013 (EST)


As you already know, many admins that were formerly active here at Wikitravel have left for pastures new in the last year.

Although IBadmins fight a heroic battle against spam, I believe we need more admins from the community.

Would you support my application to be an admin?

I believe I know current polices as well as anyone currently active. --118dot93dot73dot30 02:14, 14 April 2013 (EDT)

Abuse filters on FR WT[edit]

Salut Pierre, sur le Wikitravel français un méchant "Anti-abus-filter" m'a coupé tout moyen d'éditer et même de demander de l'aide... :o( - Au secours! --Porteplume (talk) 05:27, 19 June 2013 (EDT)

Hi Viviane! I have just added your edits to the Rustrel article! Sorry for that! Please let me know the next time a filter stops you. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 13:22, 19 June 2013 (EDT)

Re: Regions in Taiwan[edit]

Thanks mate for the reply. And yes indeed it's just that some of the districts are misplaced. --Sleepingstar (talk) 16:47, 23 December 2013 (EST)

Re: Search Engine (in Vietnam)[edit]

Thank you for your message. The site linked is really useful and not commercial. It contains all the information updated regarding to trains in Vietnam: different routes, schedules and fares. It will definitely help many travellers, since most of this information cannot be found in english anywhere else. I understand it'd be a bit redundant to post it in the country page as well as in main cities pages, but I was just following the same example as Hyperdia, mentioned in Japan country page and quoted as well in several Japanese cities pages. Basically, Baolau is for Vietnam the same concept as Hyperdia to Japan, so I understand the same rules could apply.

Hi again! Well, the idea when it comes to Wikitravel is to make it as printable-friendly as possible (among other reasons). I did check the website and indeed, it looks quite useful that's why we allow it on Vietnam main page. Town/cities pages are actually more devoted to specific infos more than trip planning, so the traveller can spot in a blink the restaurant, temple or whatever he/she is looking for. Thanks for your contribution, Amorenot! 11:05, 16 February 2014 (EST)
Thank you for the explanation, I understand the guidelines. Just wanted to clarify that I didn't post it for spam purposes, since the website is informational only, and that I followed Hyperdia's example on Japan. --Amorenot (talk) 11:34, 16 February 2014 (EST)
Absolutely, feel free to add a new contribution any time you want, we are happy to have you among us. PierrB (talk) 11:42, 16 February 2014 (EST)
Thank you, I added more information to the section of Get Around / Train. Hope my contribution is useful. --Amorenot (talk) 15:17, 16 February 2014 (EST)
