It makes no difference whatsoever. If you are the sole author of an article, you hold full copyright on it, and you can re-license it under the GFDL (Wikipedia's license). However, if anyone has made changes to the article, you can't copy it over. You can, however, look through the [[Wikitravel:page history help|page history]] and find the last version that only you had worked on, and use that. --[[User:Evan|Evan]] 11:14, 3 Feb 2004 (EST)
