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 Attribution-ShareAlike 1.0 license" so that it is clear that you are licensing it under a valid license. -- Ryan 19:59, 27 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! Ilkirk 22:03, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)
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 recent changes page and in the article history. -- Ryan 15:38, 28 Jul 2005 (EDT)
Felcor is a company that actually owns a bunch of hotels. And they seem to have paid 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! -- Colin 17:09, 14 Sep 2005 (EDT)
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?
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. -- Ryan 13:49, 26 Oct 2005 (EDT)
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? --Evan 20:38, 28 Oct 2005 (EDT)
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.) Jpatokal 20:59, 31 Oct 2005 (EST)
I am pontificating about Wikitravel:Status rating on the 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. -- 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?

Thanks for fixing up the new Prague district template. I had to go to lunch before I could get it sorted out. Thewayoftheduck 01:04, 20 July 2006 (EDT)
