Actually, I think it is fair to mention Wikivoyage specifically here because the failure to provide database dumps, and the lack of even an explanation for this failure, is a good faith issue which drains off contributors to that site in particular, thereby weakening our contributor base and generally diluting the strength of the "free-content travel guide community" (if I can call it that?). --Peter Talk 00:54, 4 September 2007 (EDT)
- For reference see Wikitravel talk:How to re-use Wikitravel guides#Keeping an up to date mirror and Wikitravel talk:How to re-use Wikitravel guides#Data Dumps? for older discussions on the subject. Also see Wikitravel:How to re-use Wikitravel guides#XML data feeds, which claims it is possible to get a full XML dump of Wikitravel, although to my knowledge no one has ever received one. I suspect shared: has additional discussions on the subject, but didn't search for them. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:13, 4 September 2007 (EDT)
- I agree that there should be dumps. I removed the WV link as part of an ongoing effort to keep their spam off of our site. – cacahuate talk 01:19, 4 September 2007 (EDT)
- I think it's antagonizing to consider mentioning a related project as spam. Especially if the project is very relevant in this context, since it is offering database dumps.
- Also note that I haven't given up on contributing to WT just yet. So I also consider it a bit weird to consider "me" part of "them". Guaka 10:27, 4 September 2007 (EDT)
