Ok, thanks for the info.

Your user page should state very very clearly that you are connected to Internet Brands?  It should be made clear to all that you don't edit in an impartial way because of your ties to the company.  Also, what's with all the adverts?  Have they recently become bigger on WT?  They're too big - think I'll head elsewhere to a site with either no ads or far fewer.

Here are archived discussions on my Talk Page.

Message from BritishZen

Hi IBAlex, thanks for the encouragement! I haven't actually edited a Wiki before, but I looked into setting one up for a small company before, so I know a tiny bit about how they work - the reason I'm here is actually to put that theory into practice and learning a lot about markup! If there's anything I should be doing differently, let me know! BritishZen (talk)

Thanks for getting back to me! Awesome, we're always on a lookout for good contributors! Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 19:24, 2 May 2014 (EDT)

Fortaleza and me

Hi there. I shaved my User page because I haven't been active for a long time, and hence do not feel all that comfortable with leaving too much info. Nothing dramatic, though. However I am still living here, so I will help out as best as I can upon specific requests. —The preceding comment was added by Mariusm98 (talkcontribs)

Mariusm98, thank you for your prompt response. I would definitely love to see your contributions here, especially about Brazil. It looks like you have a huge knowledge about travel destinations in that country. As we both know, World Cup is coming up so I would truly appreciate your updates to some of the articles. I'm also putting together a page World Cup 2014. Please feel free to plunge forward and add anything you think would benefit the traveler. Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 14:48, 28 April 2014 (EDT)

Thank you

Dear IBAlex

Thank you very much for all your positive comments regarding my articles on the Polish voivodeships. It's an honor to have your barnstar, since I never really thought I would get one before. I look forward to adding more provinces in the near future, and hope all my information can continue to be accurate! Miles531 (talk) 18:15, 15 April 2014 (EDT)

You sure deserved the barnstar! I'm looking forward to seeing more contributions from you! Dziekuje! Thank you! Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 18:14, 15 April 2014 (EDT)

Your email 260314.

Hi Alex! I am just back home after six weeks in Thailand, and can now respond to your email. Thank you for the offer, I will happily accept it. What information do you require to deliver it?

Also, I will be contributing quite a lot more info in the next couple of weeks, having been to a few out of the way places, as well as some regular ones.

One thing that will need fixing - this is an oversight on my part. The town Ban Ao Leuk. The hopeless Thai transliteration system has it as Ban Ao Luek. Will you please amend this on the site and also the two other cross reference sites, Krabi Province and Krabi Town. —The preceding comment was added by Avemario (talkcontribs)

Hello Avemario! Thank you for getting back to me. Please send me an email to awocial (at) internetbrands.com with the address you would like us to send you the package to.
We will be looking forward to seeing your contributions on Wikitravel!
I have already corrected the town name. Please let me know if there is anything else I should do. Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 15:01, 21 April 2014 (EDT)

Maps

Hi Alex, I just had one question: do you know where I can download vector files of pictograms for on city maps, preferably which I can open with Adobe Illustrator? Thanks and kind regardsRuben Alexander (talk) 13:54, 29 April 2014 (EDT)

Hi Ruben Alexander! For the vector pictograms you would have to do a Google search. Unfortunately, I don't know which site is best to download them from. Please keep in mind to download pictograms that are compatible with our CC license, meaning that they cannot be copyrighted. From what I know the majority of the vector pictograms will open in Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape. This page might be helpful for you, however it mainly focuses on Inkscape. I hope that this will help a little bit. It would be great if you could let me know where you end up downloading the vector pictograms so I know better for the future. Thank you!

Why no disclosure?

Your user page should state very very clearly that you are connected to Internet Brands? It should be made clear to all that you don't edit in an impartial way because of your ties to the company. Also, what's with all the adverts? Have they recently become bigger on WT? They're too big - think I'll head elsewhere to a site with either no ads or far fewer.
