== Wikitravel Press and Extra into Featured articles? ==
Any objections to adding a Wikitravel Press one-liner to "Featured articles"? I was thinking along these lines:
Books from [[Wikitravel:Wikitravel Press|Wikitravel Press]]:<br> [http://wikitravelpress.com/books/en/Chicago/ Chicago], [http://wikitravelpress.com/books/en/Singapore Singapore], <small>[http://stores.lulu.com/wikitravelpress more]</small>

: At the moment, with Wikitravel Press being the only one producing books, I don't have any specific problem with that, but as soon as there are more everyone will want to use the limited space in Featured articles. Maybe we should look at creating a ''Get your wikitravel hardcopy'' link from the main page to somewhere (''travel topic maybe?'') that contains detailed information about all places one can buy wikitravel articles in book form. Wikitravel Press may be the first, but with the quality of articles constantly improving and it being easy to reuse, I'm sure others will follow soon. --[[User:NJR ZA|Nick]] 02:21, 1 February 2008 (EST)
:: Actually, Wikitravel Press has an exclusive license with IB, so no, I don't think we'll see competitors ''on wikitravel.org'' anytime soon. (To be clear: there's nothing at all stopping you from making your guidebook. However, the site, the logo and the name are IB's, so you can't call it "Wikitravel" and neither can you advertise it here without their permission.)

::: Ah, in that case I can't see any problem with using Featured articles then, since it will only be Wikitravel press --[[User:NJR ZA|Nick]] 03:44, 1 February 2008 (EST)
:::How can there be an exclusive license to cc-by-sa content. [[User:188.8.131.52|184.108.40.206]] 12:57, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
Bump. Any other opinions? I'd also like to add Extra and have updated the demo above. [[User:Jpatokal|Jpatokal]] 05:14, 13 February 2008 (EST)
: That seems reasonable to me. [[User:Gorilla Jones|Gorilla Jones]] 08:07, 13 February 2008 (EST)
: OK by me. [[User:OldPine|OldPine]] 13:49, 13 February 2008 (EST)

==Travel Alerts and Current Events==
Just out of curiosity, is there a rule for when to post these? Previously, they were posted on the day on which they occurred (or on the day that a news article was written about it). This month, someone posted all of the "future events" that were written for May, so new news is not featured at the top as it should be. (I had added information about the Okayama Villas and Smithsonian Museum, but they were moved to the bottom to make the dates chronological.) I agree that the chronology makes sense, but I don't like future news being put on the homepage... Is there a rule about when to post the events that are listed as "future events" once their month becomes current? [[User:ChubbyWimbus|ChubbyWimbus]] 03:18, 17 May 2009 (EDT)
