Welcome

Hello, Justme! Welcome to Wikitravel.

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.

Great work on Eindhoven!

To respond to your questions, the first problem you had was that you placed the description within the alt="" tag, which is for alternate names, and which displays in italics. The description goes between the > and < in "></eat>". I have fixed this [1].

To add an image to the article that has been uploaded, see Wikitravel:How to add an image for a detailed explanation. The short explanation is: copy [[Image:Image name.extension|thumb|260px|Description]], but substitute the proper name for the image file and an actual description.

Lastly, don't worry—Wikitravel does have a somewhat steep learning curve! --Peter Talk 18:58, 22 July 2011 (EDT)

Really good work at Eindhoven! Well done. --Burmesedays 05:11, 28 July 2011 (EDT)
Thank you :-) It's a lot more work than I intended really, but well, I guess I now decided to make it useful enough for the average traveler. Justme 05:33, 28 July 2011 (EDT)

Would like to hear your opinion in this discussion: Talk:Den Bosch. :) --globe-trotter 18:23, 24 July 2011 (EDT)

Get out section

Just a heads up that this section is intended for a few quick wikilnked suggestions of where to go next, and not transport info. All transport info should go into the Get in section. You should change that Eindhoven please. Cheers. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by [[User:--Burmesedays 20:57, 2 August 2011 (EDT)|--Burmesedays 20:57, 2 August 2011 (EDT)]] ([[User_talk:--Burmesedays 20:57, 2 August 2011 (EDT)|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/--Burmesedays 20:57, 2 August 2011 (EDT)|contribs]])

Well, hello, mystery guest. Unfortunately, I didnt know that before and information is so ample that it's quite hard to read up. I don't really feel I "should" do anything, frankly I don't see why transport info can /not/ be there, especially to the extend that it isn't in "get in". Travel info to minor destinations around (like Helmond, for Eindhoven) doesn't really belong in get in either, I guess, so I don't see how it hurts. If I were a traveler, I would like to have an idea of how far Amsterdam is (since the Netherlands is small, it's actually doable even as a daytrip). And I feel that /if/ you link to minor destinations, like Helmond, it doesn't hurt to say which bus line runs. However, feel free to move the information to get in if you find it important.
