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. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub.
Thanks for your contributions. Since there seems to be some confusion about what content is appropriate for a region article you might want to look at Bali, which is a good example of how a region article can be filled out. If you have questions please ask here or in the Pub. -- Ryan • (talk) • 17:46, 10 May 2011 (EDT)
- Hi, Eddi. I want to compliment you for all the work you've been doing to increase information about Ireland on Wikitravel. I visited the North last summer and plan to visit the Republic at some point, and I look forward to using some of the content you've put up.

Ireland article status
Regarding your question on my user page:
- what needs to be done with the Ireland page? you added the "needs attention" thing at the bottom.
Every Wikitravel article should have an article status, so I simply restored the status (with an upgrade to "usable"). See Wikitravel:Article status. For the guidelines on how the status of country articles is determined see Wikitravel:Country guide status. Achieving "guide" status for country articles is fairly difficult due to the requirement that all major city/region articles must be at least "usable", and to my knowledge Singapore is the only "star" level country article on Wikitravel. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:35, 11 May 2011 (EDT)

Please note that the maps you have been uploading have not been properly attributed, meaning that their use on Wikitravel is technically illegal. See shared:User talk:TuuuNuuu and shared:User talk:Fffffuuuuutttt for details on how to correct the situation. -- Ryan • (talk) • 17:20, 11 May 2011 (EDT)
Hi Eddi1. When I was taking a look at the Ballaghmore article you created, I've noticed that word by word copies of at least some of the text there exists on some other websites, too. Please take a look at this Google search result for example: . Was this text written by you, or have you just copied it from somewhere? This is important, as that might be a violation of our copyleft license. – Vidimian 05:23, 13 May 2011 (EDT)
- Yeah, but we still need to attribute the creators of the original text over there. That involves using some (IMHO) rather ugly-looking tags on Wikitravel pages, so I'd rather the text be re-written for Wikitravel. However, that's just my preference, and if you prefer to keep the descriptions as how they stand now, ~just putting Template:Wikipedia at the end of the page to keep it legal is okay, too. – Vidimian 12:16, 16 May 2011 (EDT)
