Most of my work so far has been about [[Frankfurt]], [[Hamburg]], and [[Germany ]] in general, but I'm also adding what I know of other places. I seem to also do a whole lot of minor editing. Header sizes, msg:stub's, removal of spamlinks, consistency issues. I am a big consistency fan.

Hello. I'm Nils, and I used to contribute to Wikitravel a lot. Differences with the Admin staff over their arbitrary interpretation of rules they set for themselves made me leave this site. If you are still wondering who I am, here are some links:

I am by no means a professional traveller, but I do get around a little. If anybody happens to wish to hook up with me somewhere, let me know and we can arrange something.


I have serious objections to how the Internet Brands takeover was handled. Evan should have involved the community before making such a decision. His handling of the issue proves that he is not interested in the well-being of the community; Wikitravel, for him, is simply a commercial venture. I therefore must encourage you NOT to contribute to this site.
