== Rogue Bureaucrat ==
I would like to address some ongoing issues with a particular bureaucrat and one of his admins. The general idea is he follows me around and basically harasses me whenever I make an edit to one of his pages. He seems to need the last word on all the edits. I'm finding this a little perplexing since I thought it was understood that edits can be made and that factual information matter. Frankly, I think it's getting a little personal and the boundaries of fairness and good sense are being breached. I've written the details in a letter I have sent to your Wiki email since I thought it would be too much for this talk page. I am a travel writer and enjoyed working on this site very much initially. However it's become a demoralizing and draining experience lately. It's unfortunate and would hope to return to my original opinion on the task. Thanx[[User:Paula|Paula]] 20:02, 22 January 2009 (EST)

== Wikitravel Content on ==
Hi Evan and Michele,
Wikitravel is fantastic - not only for the travel information it offers, but for the community that has been built up around it. We are also building a community for travelers ( and so perhaps there are some ways that we could work together.
I'll get in touch directly, but just wanted to send a quick note via your talk page. I'm looking forward to speaking with you and thanks again for all of the time, energy and dedication you have put into Wikitravel!

== I've screwed up my Open ID and Regular user account merge ==
Ok...I can't read and follow instructions, I logged in with my OpenID and created a new account, this is not what I wanted to do. I currently have an account that I want to link to my OpenID. Can you please help me merge both accounts?

== email ==
Hello Evan,
We have had no previous contact and I know this is not the way things are normally done, but I would like the request I made off the record. Apologies for my unorthodox behavior. I am hoping you will exectute my request. If not, will you please explain why to me at the email address specified? Thanks in advance, --[[User:Faust 1976|Faust]] 07:08, 6 September 2011 (EDT)
==Evopedia Offline Reader==
We are doing our 2012 wikipedia dump conversion, this year I would also like to have wikitravel available, I would like access to a SQL database dump so we could make a nice cleanly formatted and up to date searchable database for Evopedia a free open source wikimedia reader and browser app for Linux computers, tablets, and smart phones. I have found a 2010 unofficial dump we can try to use but it is obviously two years out of date and lacks formatting for proper display of pictures which Evopedia supports when Internet is available.[[User:Biketool|Biketool]] 06:24, 24 January 2012 (EST)
== Evan: Administrator privileges removed ==
Although you founded Wikitravel, Evan, your Administrator privileges have now been removed by [[User:IBobi]] today at 22:31hrs --[[User:W. Frank|W. Frank]] 19:15, 14 September 2012 (EDT)
:I think you can be reasonably sure that Evan was unaware of this, and that it does not impact him at all. Respectfully, Evan founded Wikitravel in 2003, and sold the site 3 years later. The current host, Internet Brands, has run Wikitravel twice as long as the founders did, and Evan has not made a contribution to Wikitravel in four years, which is why his admin privileges have been deactivated. He is welcome back at any time, with full admin privileges, as are any other inactive administrators who begin contributing again.--[[User:IBobi|IBobi]] [[User talk:IBobi|talk]] [[Special:EmailUser/IBobi|email]] 19:34, 14 September 2012 (EDT)
::Thank you for the explanation, IBobi. I notice that you have been very active in the last few hours removing active contributor's admin privileges every minute or so; was there a common reason or were each user's privileges revoked for different reasons?
::Will there be any admins left to action my suggestions for deletions
:: or am I wasting my time on this site now in that regard?
::Thank you for clarifying Internet Brands policy with regard to returning administrators -that was helpful. --[[User:W. Frank|W. Frank]] 20:02, 14 September 2012 (EDT)
