Logbook

7 June 2004: The French Wikitravel has reached 300 articles. The 300th article is Grenoble, a city in south-east of France.

4 June 2004: Most of the commonly used utilities are translated to French; several remain. The district template is partly translated; this should help the creator of arrondissement articles. We successfully resolved a conflict with someone who kept adding a forum link to Hungary.

4 May 2004: Wikitravel was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Digital Communities division of the Prix Ars Electronica. Congratulations to all Wikitravellers!
