Wikitravel talk:Ways to promote Wikitravel
I am wondering if it would be possible and preferred to have downloadable icons or buttons for promoting Wikitravel on websites. Just as Firexox is doing on his Spread Firefox website. I would love to put a nice icon on my blogsite, however prepared icons would be better. bujatt 13:47, 16 May 2005 (EDT)
Lists versus recommendations
I just had a great trip to San Francisco with a "Let's Go California" guidebook. In addition to just listing interesting things to do, they have a little thumbs-up logo by those exceptional things that deserve special mention, and they give the establishment a decal to put on their door. What would it take for wikitravel to have a similar recommendation system? Presumably it would require some kind of a vote, although I suppose we could seed it with suggestions from dead-tree guidebooks.
If such a system became effective, the next step would be to send out decals, which could be effective advertising of wikitravel.
(Over four years of using that guidebook, I've found the thumbs-up recommendations to be a great help, the best being a hostel overlooking Salzburg for €12 a night.) —BenFrantzDale 23:31, 18 Mar 2005 (EST)
