Welcome to Wikitravel. Thanks for plunging forward so far. If you're going to continue working on Wikitravel, you may find the tips for new contributors helpful. You should also make sure you understand our copyleft and policies and guidelines. 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 Wikitravel:Jargon, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub or on the talk page for the most appropriate article.
Thank you for your enthusiasm in contributing; however, you may want to read Wikitravel:What is an article and Wikitravel:Article templates - Maple Canyon may not be a valid article topic unless it is either a park with camping or other lodging like Yellowstone National Park, or if it is a region like Lake Tahoe. If it does not meet either of those two criteria then the information from the article should either be merged into the containing region article (for example Central Utah), or if there is a town near the canyon then article should be merged into that town's article. In addition, Image:Brian Schenck.JPG may not be used without a model release (see Wikitravel:Image policy) and if Snowkiting is to be kept then it should probably be made into a travel topic such as Scuba diving. Your contributions are much appreciated, we'd just like to find some way to use them while still following our guidelines. If you have any questions, feel free to discuss on Talk:Maple Canyon or on my talk page. -- Ryan 20:03, 16 March 2006 (EST)
Hello again - you've uploaded a lot of great images, but a few (notably Image:Yuba Map.PNG and Image:Maple Canyon Map.JPG) look like they came from other sources. Can you note the source of each image on its page (view the image and click "Edit") so that we can verify that they all conform with the Wikitravel:Image policy? All images must either be in the public domain or else released under a CC-SA license, so if you are the photographer simply add a line such as "Taken by SanpeteCounty" or else state where the image came from and why it is OK to user it here. For reference, here is a list of images that you've uploaded:
It's okay for you to add copyright info to the images, but deleting the VFD notice does not cancel the vote. Please go to Wikitravel:Votes for deletion, find one of the votes for deletion for your images, and then explain there why the image doesn't need to be deleted.
Also, you appear to have labeled a bunch of the images/maps. I don't know what "Taken by Palidase State Park" is supposed to mean since State Parks are not people and cannot possibly take pictures. Additionally, making maps is very hard -- most companies license them from map makers and do not own them, so labeling a map with "Map property of Sanpete County" is a rather surprising claim which could use a bit of explaination about who drew the map. -- Colin 17:31, 17 March 2006 (EST)

Wow. A lot of work done today. Nice going. Some great pictures. A couple of things to consider:
I hope that stuff helps you. I'll try to take a look at some of the naming things tomorrow and see if I can help you clean it up. Keep up the good work and thanks for the great contributions. Let me know if I can help at all. -- OldPine 23:09, 1 October 2007 (EDT)
