Hello! 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.


Hi! It looks like you're adding a bunch of felcor hotels. Just wanted to let you know we appreciate it! Are you an employee or just enthusiastic about them? (Either way we're happy to have your help!) If you're looking for our official formatting rules for Sleep, check out Wikitravel:Accommodation listings. --Colin 15:04, 2 Dec 2004 (EST)

Guidelines[edit]

Hi, thanks for all your hard work so far. Just a couple of things. First, check out the naming conventions about disambiguation: Naples, FL should be Naples (Florida) (I will move it in a second). Next, Other destinations is for things like national parks, you should list cities and towns under Cities. Finally, when you create a new article, can you put something like "Cocoa Beach is in Florida" as the very first line? When the rest of us go to edit the page, or when users read the page, they won't necessarily know where it is.

Thanks again, especially for the Sleep listings. We have so few of them. Every bit helps. -- Hypatia 18:31, 6 Dec 2004 (EST)

Hi there[edit]

I noticed you recently changed "Deseret Morning News" in the Salt Lake City article to "Desert Morning News". This is wrong. "Deseret" is a Mormon word meaning "honey bee" pronounced "Dez-er-ett". Wikipedia article on Deseret SLC Punk! 21:02, 25 Dec 2004 (EST)

Online Hotel Guides[edit]

Hi. Since one of our goals here at Wikitravel is to make it possible to print out useful guides, we don't want our content to contain pointers to useful websites which are only useful if you are looking at the online copy of wikitravel. As a result, our external link policy forbids external links to hotel guides as a matter of general policy. Since your guides will likely be removed from the pages, I'm afraid that adding them is a bit of a waste of time.

And once again, thank you so much for adding links to specific hotels to the Sleep sections of our guide. You have really improved a number of city guides because of it. -- Colin 14:11, 5 Jan 2005 (EST)

Please see Wikitravel:Contributor research links#Travel guides to explain why sites like hotel-masters.com are being removed from articles. Please also read and try to understand Wikitravel:External links#What to link to. We love you being here but adding these particular links is wasted effort that could be turned to more productive uses. -- Huttite 15:31, 5 Jan 2005 (EST)
