Please direct the following questions to the right spots:
Call me ASAP
Can you call me ASAP on my cell: 819-712-2813. I have some important decisions to make this week regarding the multilingual wiki project, and I can't make them without knowing more about your level of interest.
I will leave a message on Michele-Ann's page also.
Evan, can you have a look at this, it looks most strange on my IE7 - only about 1/6 of the words show. Is it the same on your screen? -- DanielC 15:42, 2 February 2007 (EST)
Hi. I asked a question about Flickr at shared:Tech:Add_ImportFreeImages_extension. Not sure if that's the right place, and more importantly not sure if you'd notice it so I'm pinging you here. -- Jonboy 10:36, 3 February 2007 (EST)

followup on Talk:Greece#ferry schedule and routes
I see you removed a list of cities where crime rates are considerably higher than St.Petersburg. I was shocked when I read some of the misleading and offensive rubbish in the article. Then I thought to compare it to other city articles like London where I find a much better balanced view. I respect your opinion regarding the list of countries you removed but I really feel St.Petersburg needs to be put in context so I have made the list less quantitative and more qualitative. I am in a position to comment on these maters since I live in the city for 6 months of the year and own several apartments there.
Hi Evan. Got your note on WikiOutdoors. I am open to your suggestion (pun intended!). I'll put a note in our forums section on technology so Michael sees the request. He'll be in touch probably via talk page to discuss the details. Thanks! Kirasw 14:11, 11 February 2007 (EST)

I’m writing from Lonely Planet, one of the largest travel media companies in the world. I see that you will be attending South x Southwest Interactive in March. Chris Boden, our Director of Global Business Development and Blake Hutchinson, Director of Partnerships and Licensing will also be attending on behalf of Lonely Planet. They would like to meet up with you while at the conference to discuss opportunities for partnerships as Lonely Planet is moving more into the digital space. Are you available on Monday, March 12th, in the afternoon? I can best be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
I contacted a Mr. Jason Richey in regards to help with applying wikiwyg, and he told me it would be best to get your help.
Im currently in a coop position for the Government of Canada, and am trying to give a good enough impression to go full time. One of the tasks they have given me is to implement a wysiwyg editor into a wiki. I tried the whole FCKeditor thing however path issues are causing it not to work or the wiki itself.
I found some files, however have no idea if they are the right ones, or how to even go about installing everything. Any and all help is truly appreciated and I sincerely thank you for just taking the time to read this.

Hi Evan, could we install the extension "ParserFunctions"? Then we would be able to make fancy templates, like the automatic generation of a map showing the location of a city, or converting the climate-tables from plain text to a diagram. I made a "offical" request on shared:. Thanks! --Flip666 13:29, 17 February 2007 (EST)
Hi Evan - the spam filter seems to be disabled after the upgrade. Talk:Main Page got hit with something that should have been blocked, and I was able to add a spam pattern to a sandbox page. -- Ryan 00:03, 22 February 2007 (EST)

proposal to set up wikitravel abbreviations page
hi evan, what about starting a page to list all the abbreviations of wikitravel-specific vocabulary. You know, MoS, DotM, CoW, OTBP and that sort of stuff. Please let me know what you think on this on this talk page, I'll have it on my watchlist. Upamanyuwikitravel 08:35, 22 February 2007 (EST)
2 step watch/unwatch
So a while back someone was asking about this in the pub, and according to Mark it looked unlikely... though when I was just patrolling some edits, I notice on the "this page has been patrolled" page there was an "unwatch" tab up top... and I was able to toggle back and forth with one click, no confirmations. Also when I'm editing a page on my watchlist it shows that option. But if I'm just looking at a page on my watchlist, it still just shows the "watch" tab as it always was, and is followed by a confirm page. Can this be fixed? That's a super new feature, I hope so! - Cacahuate 18:26, 22 February 2007 (EST)
you made a funny
Evan I'm looking for new business ideas, being jobless and all... and one that involves travel would be great... in short, I'm applying for the t-shirt stand job... p.s., I grew up in Midland, and have actually been to Lubbock... bet you don't hear that often... - Cacahuate 14:20, 23 February 2007 (EST)
Template:Related rendering incorrectly?
My real name
I've read your question on your pages but I haven't seen any option to leave you a comment, so I come here to let you know the answer.
I confirm that Carme Pla is my real name. Carme is the catalan version of the more widely spread "Carmen", thanks to the opera by Bizet. Pla is a common name in Catalunya; one famous writer with this name was Josep Pla.
By the way, thanks again for your support with the launch of the Catalan version of Wikitravel!!!
