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?

Re: Regions in Taiwan
Re: Search Engine (in Vietnam)
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.
RE: Antigua Guatemala
Hi PierrB ! Thank you for your message.
I think you made a little mistake there. I have not remove or replaced the Hostal you are referring to, or any other. Perhaps you have clicked on the wrong user. My contributions so far are related to grammar and small details only. I would appreciate your confirmation on this, for I would not like to be consider as a bad contributor on this great community. Many thanks ! Mike Toulsen (talk) 10:41, 5 May 2014 (EST)
Updating Where to Eat and Stay at
Hi PierrB ! I understand that you are one of the moderators for the Guatemala section. I wanted to ask you if I could (or perhaps your self) update some of the biz lists for Guatemala and Antigua Guatemala. I noticed that a couple of links should be updated, two restaurants in Antigua and one Hotel are no longer in business. How can this data be updated? Many thanks !

Hi Pierre - i had trouble converting some Get Out entries in the Batu page into listings [initially those entries were from the "See" section]. Would you help me please? merci beaucoup :) ... i hope my spelling was right :D
Hi Pierre - what do you think needs to be added to make Batu a guide article, apart from dividing the hotels and restaurants into categories such as "budget, mid-range, splurge"? merci beaucoup :) --Siung99 (talk) 00:04, 4 September 2014 (EDT)
I noticed you removed an edit I made for Angeles City, which was replacing a link to a defunct site, with one that has up to date information. Why no linking to external sites? The list of bars, restaurants and hotels on here is pretty limited (12 bars, 3 of which are in Diamond Subdivision, which is not in the main tourist area; while there are over 100 bars of interest to tourists). The newer site has many more places and would make a good companion to Wikitravel page. Perhaps it should be listed in a different place on the page? Thanks for your consideration.
Indeed, so far, the sections you mention are limited, but the all thing is about contributing; either I am a tourist, in AC for business or a local, anyway I tried a nice place, so I'll add a Listing to AC page trying to give some inputs about it. Of course it takes more time, especially for places that don't receive billions of visitors every year, but it's part of the game! And at least, it personalized and definitely not sponsored. Hope this makes more sense... And if one day you feel up to add a new listing, either Diamond Subdivision or not, please go for it!
