Hello. I'm [http://nils.jeppe.de/about/ 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'm a UNIX geek from [[Germany]]. I am originally from [[Hamburg]] and now live in [[Frankfurt]]. For more information, you can consult my [http://nils.jeppe.de/ homepage].

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.
  
Expect most of my work to reflect Frankfurt, Hamburg, and Germany in General, but I'll of course pipe in for any destination I have visited (see below). Finally, I have been taking photos with a digicam for a year or so and I'll happily contribute some of those. A travelguide needs pictures!!

Explore [[Europe]]. Visit [[Tokyo]] and other parts of [[Japan]] and [[Asia]] - like [[India]], [[Bali]], [[Australia]], [[China]], [[Thailand]].

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.

If you are interested in an alternative by a democratically run non-profit organisation, head over to http://www.wikivoyage.org.
