The Travellers' pub—your watering hole on Wikitravel

The Travellers' pub is where Wikitravellers of all languages get to together to talk about Wikitravel, and where you can ask for help if you're confused, lost, afraid, tired or annoyed by Wikitravel. Please check the FAQ and Help page before asking a question, though, since that may save your time and others'.

If you have question about travel, not the website, try the Travellers' pubs in your language edition of Wikitravel.

If you are having a problem that you think has to do with the Mediawiki software, please post that on the technical requests page instead.

Please add new questions at the bottom of the page and sign your post by appending four tildes (~~~~) to it, but otherwise plunge forward!


There are archives available for this page. Please do not edit the archives - instead, start a new thread.

Editing pages nor creating account work from from China because of missing Google Recaptcha[edit]

Since end of May 2014 are Google services blocked in China, editing page or creating account on Wikitravel.org requires entering code from Google Recaptcha, so all users from Chinese IP address which would like to correct data or sign up for account can't finish the process because Google Recaptcha won't appear to them on page. I had to use VPN on my mobile to create account to be able to notify you about this, but not all users have VPN to spoof their IP address.

Thank you for your comments. Our admin in China has contacted our main office about this, so they are aware. Hopefully you are able to add some nice content on Wikitravel now you do have an account. Any questions, please let us know. Kind regards, Adzas (talk) 05:37, 25 July 2014 (EDT)

Problems creating article.[edit]

Hi, I am trying to create an article for Old Barag (Inner Mongolia) but I keep getting an error when I submit it

Warning: This action has been identified as harmful. Unconstructive edits will be quickly reverted and egregious or repeated unconstructive editing will result in your account and/or IP address being blocked.

I am not sure what I am doing wrong, I am a newbie, thanks! —The preceding comment was added by Varofaro (talkcontribs)

Hi, I just sent you a message on your talk page. Any questions, please let us know. Adzas (talk) 07:30, 6 August 2014 (EDT)

Hi, i double checked my article, there are no links. I am writing from China, I read that some people are having troubles posting from China, maybe that has something to do. Now I get a different error:

"This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Air America"

I do not understand.

Sorry if I am missing something obvious. The preceding comment was added by Varofaro (talkcontribs)

Hello, have you tried editing again? Anyway, I suggest you to use our main Wikitravel's Pub and articles' talkpages, this is Wikitravel Shared. GiulioC (talk) 08:58, 9 August 2014 (EDT)
Hi, I noticed you managed to create the article on August 7 on our main Wikitravel site, so I am assuming all is ok now. Adzas (talk) 13:39, 9 August 2014 (EDT)
