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.
I might be able to update the DisneyWorld map at some point, but it'll probably take a while. I'm afraid my life is too busy now to make maps for the individual theme parks. Making a good map takes time, and you should know that it is asking a lot to ask someone to make 5 separate maps. However, you're more than welcome to give it a shot yourself.

I just wanted to commend you on your work on the DisneyWorld guide, i can see you're getting frustrated about the progress of the star nomination, and I just wanted to reach out and give you a pat on the back for your work - it is excellent.
Please be aware that the star articles are sort of the showcase of the community, and people are really nit picky, because it means something to them, as they spend a lot of time here. Just - don't despair alright :-)
Personally, I'm missing some map(s) showing the location of the ride - and then i'd throw in my support

Re: Walt Disney World redirect problem
Something odd with the way redirects and caches work. The page at "http://wikitravel.org/en/Walt_Disney_World" was cached as an older version, even though the actual (redirected) text at "http://wikitravel.org/en/Walt_Disney_World_Resort" had since changed. I had no idea that was even possible. Anyway, a quick purge of the redirect page (via "http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Walt_Disney_World&action=purge") fixed it.

Thanks for your work on the Pensacola Beach article! You're pretty good at fixing some of those weird little sentences I make sometimes. I can't believe I typed 1780 instead of 1880 when talking about Lt. Langdon. And while I'm posting here, I'll also say you've done some incredible stuff with the Walt Disney World article! --Tally talk 12:25, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Re: New infobox
Cute, but I think we should stick to images of Walt Disney World. LtPowers 16:13, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Re: New Walt Disney World edit
I'll pare it down. LtPowers 09:09, 28 January 2009 (EST)
Disney Tokyo map
Re: Minor WDW map error
Nice catch; I screwed up when I was renumbering. Feel free to fix it yourself if you get to it before I do. =) LtPowers 12:41, 11 June 2009 (EDT)
Osprey Ridge Golf Course
Hi, Jonathan. Re: this edit, I put Osprey Ridge in the Downtown Disney area for two reasons: 1) That's where WDW puts it, and 2) I think it's more readily accessible from the Port Orleans/Downtown Disney area than from the Magic Kingdom area, despite its proximity to Fort Wilderness.

Re: Good job
One thing at a time. =) Studios is almost up to snuff. I still need to expand the See/Do descriptions and add something about the Wide World of Sports complex. LtPowers 09:24, 5 July 2009 (EDT)
Re: How do I create or edit a map?
Well, for Tokyo Disney, you could always ask User:Tatata, who created the map, to modify it to include the missing items. =) However, modifying it yourself would be a good first step rather than trying to create one from scratch. We have instructions at Wikitravel:How to draw a map, but in short: you'll need a program called Inkscape (a free vector image editor), and you'll need to play around with it a bit to learn how things are done. You could start by taking the Tokyo Disney map (start with the SVG, the vector version: Image:JP Map of Tokyo Disney Resort.svg) and loading it in Inkscape and seeing how different parts of it are put together.

Hi, Jonathan. I noticed you've uploaded several images without specifying where they came from or even, in some cases, what license they're under. I urge you to go through your contributions and make sure they include all of the necessary information: description, source, author, and license. You can see an example on shared:Image:Japanese pagoda at Epcot.jpg, which you uploaded, where I pulled in the necessary information from Wikimedia Commons. Thanks a ton for your help!

Hi, Jonathan. Regarding this reversion, I apologize. I hit the rollback button by mistake, so I wasn't able to explain why I removed it in the edit summary. Here's my explanation: the scene in Spaceship Earth shows only one person, not two, and that one person is definitely not a young Steve Jobs. The figure does resemble Steve Wozniak, but Disney claims that it's not supposed to represent any real person. So that's why I removed your addition. I hope you understand.
