Wikitravel Shared talk:Travellers' pub
I wanted to float and idea on Shared here since there is more traffic. I created a welcome message on Shared, which I use everytime I see a new user on Shared. The idea is to prevent copyvios and abuse on the Shared site. In the welcome message I direct users back to EN site's travellers' pub in case they have a question or issue it can be answered immediately. I believe it is a good idea especially for new wiki users.
I would like to create a separate Shared help page on EN, so that questions specific to Shared can be asked there and these questions can be answered in a timely fashion instead of being answered two or three days later on the Shared site. Anyone else think this would useful? I'd imagine the page could be Wikitravel:Shared help? - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 21:21, 5 June 2006 (EDT)
P.S. What happened to Willy? Did someone kill him or did he wander off? - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 21:22, 5 June 2006 (EDT)
I opened this topic for discussion a while back and didn’t hear anything…. As you know, Internet Brands would like to grow the site. And expanding the templates would be an organic and positive way of doing that. Talking about the kinds of templates that might work here could help shape the site going forward. There’s been some talk about new ideas that received some positive feedback, namely [http://wikitravel.org/en/Talk:Heathrow_Airport#Article_content ] and roadways. I’d love to hear your thoughts about other new templates/ new ideas that you think would fit here. Thanks!
Hey, I'm kind of new here(I mean editing and stuff) and need to find general information and some sort of legal policy or sth. For example, I want to contact somebody here, but don't know how to message people/users. I want to learn about this web site's policy because the reason why I want to contact a person is because I think nationalism is an ideology and I suppose wikitravel is not supposed to be called along with an ideology. If my presupposition is true, I want to tell this person about it. But (1)I don't know how to do it, and (2)I don't even know about wikitravel's policy enough to do it. I tried the "help" page and some others like that, but couldn't find an answer. Maybe it's too basic of a question, but didn't know about it. Please somebody give me some information or direct me to a page where I can find that information.Banu 09:05, 3 June 2009 (EDT)Banu
New around here, so not sure if this is the right venue to report this...
Found someone apparently using a script to mass post/vandalize pages. I fixed a couple before I realized just how many there are!
Hopefully someone knows how to quickly undo all of them, I surely do not. (unsigned by 188.8.131.52)
I need help removing an entry that someone else put up and isn't accurate
Last year someone put an entry up about me teaching horseback riding at the Islamabad Club but it's wrong. I teach at Shahwana Riding Club and that's where I have my horses. I have tried to remove the posting about 5 times but it keeps coming back. Also the entry above that one is wrong. Mr Mushtaq is no longer in operation so it should be removed as an option to ride in Islamabad. Can you please help to remove these inaccurate postings? I'd also like to be able to put up a new one, but those never seem to stay posted either. One day, and then it reverts back to the old version...please help!
I have just started a page for my home town. Can i add a hyperlink from a particular word/phrase to its' relevant article in Wiki-PEDIA..?? or is this a no-no..! :) thanks ..SkyPikey
