Hello!

Welcome to Wikitravel. You can edit your preferences to change how the software works for you. Please take a second to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. Scanning the Manual of style, especially the article templates, can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted. If you're new to our wiki software, MediaWiki, look at the Wiki markup to get an idea of how to edit a page. If you need help, check out the help desk, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.

Thanks for your work on Birmingham (England) and Wikitravel:Microformats. --Evan 18:08, 25 November 2006 (EST)

Docent?

Hi Andy

Thanks for your help on Birmingham (England)! Have you considered becoming a docent for the article? If you're up for this, your username goes on the side bar and if someone has a question about the place they ask you. If you can answer them then just integrate the info into the article. -- Tim 15:48, 27 November 2006 (EST)

Thanks, but I'm not sure how often, or for how long, I'll be visiting. When and while I do, I'll have the article's talk page on my watch-list, so will deal with any issues raised there. Andy Mabbett 07:34, 28 November 2006 (EST)

Maps

OK, I tweaked the maps, adding labels and route summaries to the bus map and changing the pattern of the mainline routes on the rail map (the rest I left alone as the colours don't signify anything particularly important, they're just there to match up with the local rail guides). Hopefully that should be sufficient, but if you think anything further is needed let me know. --Paul. 17:25, 28 November 2006 (EST)

Mapping service

Andy: you may be interested in Wikitravel:13 December 2006. Your opinion on the geo uF would be valuable. --Evan 20:22, 12 December 2006 (EST)

Thank you. I've replied there. Andy Mabbett 06:56, 13 December 2006 (EST)

December 2006 discussions

I tried to add this section to Wikitravel_talk:Phone_numbers, but kept getting "spam blocked".
