==Welcome==
 
  
Hello Ilkirk! [[Wikitravel:Welcome, Wikipedians|Welcome]] to Wikitravel. Thanks for [[Wikitravel:plunge forward|plunging forward]] so far. If you're going to continue working on Wikitravel, you may find the [[Wikitravel:tips for new contributors|tips for new contributors]] helpful.
 
  
You should also make sure you understand our [[Wikitravel:copyleft|copyleft]] and [[Wikitravel:policies and guidelines|policies and guidelines]]. Scanning the [[Wikitravel:Manual of style|Manual of style]], especially the [[Wikitravel:article templates|article templates]], can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted.
 
  
If you need help, check out [[Wikitravel:Help]], and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the [[Wikitravel:travellers' pub|travellers' pub]] or on the [[Wikitravel:using talk pages|talk page]] for the most appropriate article.
 
  
Thanks for your contributions on [[Chattanooga]] - it's coming along very quickly!  While your contributions have been good, it would be helpful if you could add a license statement to [[:Image:TNAquariumChattanooga.jpg]], [[:Image:LookoutMountainTN.jpg]], [[:Image:HunterMuseumChattanoogaTN.jpg]] and [[:Image:WalnutStreetBridgeChattanoogaTN.jpg]] saying something like "Licensed under the [[Wikitravel:full text of the Attribution-ShareAlike 1.0 license|Attribution-ShareAlike 1.0]] license" so that it is clear that you are licensing it under a valid license. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] 19:59, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)
 
  
: Licensing completed! [[User:Ilkirk|Ilkirk]] 23:08, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)
 
  
::Thanks! And sorry for putting the welcome message on your user page instead of your talk page -- lack of sleep apparently caught up with me. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] 00:20, 28 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Ryan - Thanks for the encouragement!  I've somehow spent an extraordianary amount of time on the page for some reason.  As becuase of all that time, A) I've got what I think is a great page about my hometown, and B) its over the 32kb mark!  Could you give me some pointers on what to do about this?  I read that some people have broken the article into districts, but Chattanooga doesn't seem to lend too well to that... I don't think.  Thanks!  [[User:Ilkirk|Ilkirk]] 22:03, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)
 
  
: Going over 32k is fine, there's been some talk about upping the limit — it's just a semirandom default value better suited to Wikipedia than Wikitravel. [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 22:12, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)
 
  
:: Oh - beautiful!  I'm so glad to hear that because I just couldn't come up with any ideas of spliting the dang thing!  Have you looked at the article?  See anything I've done horribly wrong?  I've started switching the addresses and phone numbers to the top of the entries, but I've got to do so sleeping first... Oh yeah, and I stole your infobox bit from your user page - I dig it. [[User:Ilkirk|Ilkirk]] 23:07, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)
 
  
==Recent Changes==
 
  
Hi Ilkirk,
 
  
Regarding your note about "''Somewhat unrelated, but could you tell me how it is that you put the little notes in the Recent Change log?''", you simply add a note in the summary box that appears at the bottom of the edit screen (above the "Save Page" and "Show Preview" buttons).  That message will then appear on the [[Special:Recentchanges|recent changes page]] and in the article history. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] 15:38, 28 Jul 2005 (EDT)
 
  
: Too easy. Thanks! :) [[User:Ilkirk|Ilkirk]] 16:17, 28 Jul 2005 (EDT)

* [[Glenorchy]] - Needs sleep (amongst other things)... the camp grounds, the hotel.  Must remember drinking at the pub/hotel/restaurant.  "The Crib" may be open.  Check on other tracks leaving from there and collect info for the bus.
 
  
* [[Tunica]] - Come on... there is plenty of information to be added here.  Should be an easy bit of work.

== Felcor ==
 
  
Felcor is a [http://www.felcor.com company] that actually owns a bunch of hotels.  And they seem to have paid [[User talk:Redbug|someone]] to add the hotels into wikitravel, which is Officially Okay and Encouraged behavior.  Since those are all felcor websites, they really are the primary and correct sites for those hotels.  Thanks! -- [[User:Cjensen|Colin]] 17:09, 14 Sep 2005 (EDT)
 
  
:Oh yeah.  He also makes a lot of mistakes -- like putting hotels into Atlanta instead of the specific suburb article, non-MoS formatting, and failing to add phone numbers. Sometimes I go through his contributions and fix them up, but lately he hasn't been logging in (probably due to the login bug we used to have) so it's harder to identify his contributions. -- [[User:Cjensen|Colin]] 17:16, 14 Sep 2005 (EDT)

::Oh... I gotcha.  It just seemed so strange to see the same link (more or less) over and over again.  Thanks for clueing me in on that one... as you can see, I get a little crazy sometimes. :) -- [[User:Ilkirk|Ilkirk]] 22:49, 19 Sep 2005 (EDT)
 
  
:::It's a good kind of crazy, from what I've seen. -- [[User:Cjensen|Colin]] 23:01, 19 Sep 2005 (EDT)
 
  
==nps.gov==
+
Hull is a quintessential northern English city, and one which has undergone a transformation in recent years. Situated on the Humber Estuary in Yorkshire, the town has some very interesting historical sites, a fascinating museum district, and a multitude of places to eat, drink and sleep. (more...)
 +
  
Hey - I reverted one of your changes to [[Cuyahoga Valley National Park]] since nps.gov is public domain.  I'm short of sleep and doing ten things at once at work today, so if I missed something and there really is a copyvio feel free to revert my revert, which I may then mistakenly revert again, thus creating a need for a revert of the reverted revert which was mistakenly reverted. Did I mention I'm sleep deprived?

Off the beaten path

Great work on all of the edits and such lately, by the way.  People around here often tend to be silently impressed, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates the massive number of format updates and other edits you've been making. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] 13:49, 26 Oct 2005 (EDT)
 
  
:I feel like a little bit of a nutjob when I glance at the recent changes and see my name appear so many times.  I just troll the special pages, looking for the mistakes that I had made when I first got started.  Thanks for the "vocal" acknowledge, though - makes me feel better about bombing the recent change list!
 
  
:All of the info I removed from the [[Cuyahoga Valley National Park]] was from the NPS site... I didn't consider the idea that it was public domain. Thanks!  
+
Eindhoven is dominated by industrial development as the city's history is inextricably linked to electronics giant Philips, and to a lesser degree, DAF. Although those industries have mostly disappeared, they have left the city a rich industrial heritage and a lot of museums. In addition, over the past decade the city has become the so-called capital of Dutch design. (more...)

I'd like to nominate you for administrator status. You show a lot of understanding of what we're trying to do here, and I think you'd be a big help. Would you mind if I nominate you? --[[User:Evan|Evan]] 20:38, 28 Oct 2005 (EDT)

== Special characters ==
 
  
Please note that Latin characters ''are'' OK to use in Wikitravel article names: see [[Wikitravel:Article_naming_conventions#Non-alphabetic_characters]].  (The wording is poor and I'll try to fix it up, but see the Talk page for a long discussion.) [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 20:59, 31 Oct 2005 (EST)

I am pontificating about [[Wikitravel:Status rating ]] on the [[Wikitravel talk:Status rating|talk page]]. You might want to join the discussion and stop me before I do anything stupid, as I feel like I am talking through a hole in my head at present. But then I realise it is still Friday night for half the world and people may be otherwise distracted. I am proposing some changes, but holding off implementing them ... for a little while. -- [[User:Huttite|Huttite]] 20:24, 18 Nov 2005 (EST)

Why is this article voted for deletion?
 
  
It is very possible you have more information to share and the article will not be deleted. -- Ilkirk 11:22, 18 July 2006 (EDT)
 
  
No, just curious. I'm new here and was wondering, because I did not find anything wrong with the article (except, that it was a stub). Btw. I find this way of communicating with each other by editing other peoples discussion page a bit strange. Is it really the way you talk to other users here? Or am I getting something completely wrong?
