To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page.
That is definitely a mistake by me. So sorry about that and I have restored the edit. I cannot think why I did that to be frank. Thanks for spotting it and letting me know. Cheers. --Burmesedays 20:50, 4 March 2010 (EST)
Some really nice work, well done. I have made a few little changes to bring the formating into line with WT standards. Cheers and again, good work.--Burmesedays 04:52, 12 March 2010 (EST)

Perth map SVG
I have now uploaded. See Image:Perth_map.svg. It is a bit rough and ready and you might even want to start again :). I am happy to help out with any of the Perth mapping if you get stuck. Cheers. --Burmesedays 11:04, 9 June 2010 (EDT)
Hi Cardboardbird, thanks a lot for your patrolling work! But I request you to be a little more suspicious and careful with edits to West Bengali articles such as Mandarmani, Shankarpur, Digha, and Bakkhali. Those edits are more often than not made by persistent touts trying to sell their business (with phone numbers ending with 4473 and 686, if I'm not mistaken), and should be reverted rather than cleaned up—please see Talk:Mandarmani#Phone .23 spamming .26 article protection for more background info on this. And if you are not sure what to do with these edits while you are patrolling, just leave them unmarked, someone else will most likely take care of them. And as for this edit summary, it wasn't intentional, I was going to continue to it as "...it should be reverted, I wish I did this before you cleaned it up...", or something like that, but I accidentally hit "enter" on my keyboard (and thus, "save" button). – Vidimian 09:51, 27 October 2010 (EDT)
Hi, Get out literally means getting out of the place. It can also mean going out to visit another place of interest or destination from the original location. Here, I expanded a previous version of get out which is too brief and states a few generic location. By doing so, travellers planning their trip will have a good idea of how to get out by public transport to other places nearby. This format is similar to Lonely Planet '"Getting in and away". Hope my answer enlightens you.
I have nominated you as a
Deletion of busan inn motel
Yesterday you deleted an entry on the Busan budget sleep section. Your reason was that it was a touty ad in an already overcrowded section. I appreciate your efforts to clean up pages on wikitravel, especially those that are clearly advertisments, but in this case please hear me out.
I have lived in Korea for several years and travel to Busan frequently. I have stayed at many of the places listed in the budget section and quite a few of them are horrible and dirty. I by chance stayed at the Busan Inn motel and it was very clean, the owner was friendly, and the price was very good for a private room. I put it up on Wikitravel because its far nicer than most of the competition and I felt fellow travelers should know about it.
I went back and deleted some of the more touty parts of the post so it doesnt seem so much like an ad. I would appreciate it if you left it up or if you have problems with it to let me know before deleting it again. Thanks,
Kiev: "negative grumbling"
I'm not sure whether we share the same view on a travel guide: You seem to think it should only contain positive features of a particular location if you remove my criticism of a certain restaurant as "negative grumbling". Making readers able to avoid a scam (and, despite all lack of attention from my side in that situation, it is still a scam) is just what I think should be contained in a travel guide. Yours sincerely. --188.8.131.52 00:02, 24 December 2010 (EST)
