It would seem to me that a great advantage of a WikiTravel over any other travel guide is that WikiTravel can be as up-to-date as possible. But how do I weave time sensitive information into a general article such as this one? For instance, it might be interesting to know that Amsterdam is building a new subway system, and that certain parts of town are less easily accessible than is usual. ---Branko
-:Branko: it'd probably be a great thing to put in the top part of "Get around", since it's really a getting-around-locally question. Sound reasonable? --Evan 20:16, 9 Dec 2003 (PST)
-or a section for "travel advisories" that are valid for a finite time period, for instance Athens during the Olympics, or Amsterdam from now until the estimated subway system completion date. Can the wiki be set up to automatically remove or archive expired travel avisories (for convenience and clarity)?
Biking in Amsterdam
We might want to put all biking information together in one paragraph, since now you can find info about biking at least 3 different paragraphs: - On foot and bike - Do - Stay safe --bartvanslobbe
I don't know if it's okay to put 'welldones' on the talk pages, but I don't know where else to say it! This page is fantastic, very informative, exactly what a good guide should be. Thankyou!
- The best way to say you love a page is to propose it on Wikitravel:Destination of the Month candidates. April in Amsterdam, anyone? Jpatokal 11:36, 5 Mar 2005 (EST)
Maybe some Wikitraveler passing through Amsterdam could check this out. I don't know if it should get its own article here or just a long paragraph in the Get Out section, as usual it depends on having places to sleep.

Is the strippenkaart really allowed to use for the NS trains in Amsterdam??? There are not many trains within Amsterdam... and I also never heard of this before. The NS website doesn't mention this.
- It's only on some routes (complements the metro system), There is a page on the NS site (Dutch) listing the line sections for Amsterdam and other cities.. Go to www.ns.nl, choose 'nederland' at the top, Then 'Kaartjes' in the blue horizontal navbar. Now in the yellow navbar on ther left choose 'Kaartsooten' and then 'Speciale treinkaartjes'. Scroll down through the list in the main page and select 'Strippenkaart en Sterabonnement'. Easy..not!
- The URL I see is: http://www.ns.nl/serhvlet/Satellite?cid=1076057854926&pagename=www.ns.nl%2FArtikel%2FOverig_www.ns.nl&p=1075382368841&lang=nl&c=Artikel but I have no confidence that this will continue to work.
