Plunge forward!

Being a traveller requires courage, self-confidence and perseverance. Being a Wikitraveller requires the same qualities.

We expect you to plunge forward into the task of authoring, editing, and illustrating articles on Wikitravel. You can edit any article on Wikitravel (even this one!), and we hope that you do. We need your knowledge, your experience, your talent, and your attention.

Plunging forward means:

  • Being assertive. Your knowledge and experience really does count! There are few (if any) "travel experts" working on Wikitravel (if they exist anywhere...), so don't worry about not being good enough! We want and need your help.
  • Experimenting. There's really not much permanent damage you can do to Wikitravel. If things get messed up or broken, other Wikitravellers will come in and fix them.
  • Doing what's OK right now. You don't have to create a perfect, fully-formed article the first time around. Just make a quick contribution or add a basic outline if an article about your favourite town doesn't yet exist. Get your thoughts down and let others expand on them. That's how Wiki works!
  • Ignoring authority. You have as much right to edit anything on Wikitravel as anyone else does. Don't bother asking whether it's alright to edit something. It is!

So plunge forward! Who knows, you might enjoy it!
