Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a sec to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages.

Thanks for starting editing -- looking forward to more contributions! --Evan 01:19, 13 Apr 2004 (EDT)

You rock!

Thanks for the spelling corrections! For what it's worth I spell even worse in French. ;) -- Mark 17:36, 2 May 2004 (EDT)

I just wanted to say the same thing. I really appreciate the hard work you put in to fixing bad spelling like mine! -- Colin 01:17, 5 May 2004 (EDT)

I disagree with you regarding American spelling for Commonwealth countries. Please see Wikitravel talk:Spelling. Jpatokal 05:29, 7 May 2004 (EDT)

Unpacking links

I hate to spoil all the great work you have been doing but please check out why Wikitravel unpacks external links. Hidden links are fine on a webpage but useless on a printed page (as the URL is printed after the link). Showing the full URL (or being aware it will show when printed) is more helpful to the traveller . I edited your recent contributions to New Zealand about YHA and Backpackers to show the full URLs (and had my misinterpretations explained to me too - so I will have to rethink my edits). -- Huttite 09:08, 21 May 2004 (EDT) (Additional comments added after discussion on my talk page: Huttite 19:40, 21 May 2004 (EDT))

I am sorry if I confused you, that was not my intent. I was confused myself but did not know it! I have moved the conversation that was on my talk page to Wikitravel talk:External links#Unpacking URLs, so that others can share my enlightenment! Thank-you for making a contribution that has challenged my misconceptions and forced me to rethink what I was doing. -- Huttite 00:36, 22 May 2004 (EDT)
