Hello Tlogmer!

Welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a sec to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. Scanning the Manual of style, especially the article templates, can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.

Please be aware that WikiTravel is different from WikiPedia. Some things are acceptable here that are not tolerated on Wikipedia and vice versa.

Please have a look at Wikitravel:Copyright details, it would appear the images you uploaded may be copyright violations. Wikitravel prefers to use images that are the submitter's own work. Simply claiming fair use of images is not acceptable for Wikitravel because of the downstream potential use of those images. In questionable situations images will be deleted.

Please also have a look at our Wikitravel:Goals and non-goals. WikiTravel will contain commercial links and adverts (it must because of its goals). While these links may appear commercial, that is entirely the point. We also have a set layout for articles. Consequently, some of your changes to Ann Arbor are inappropriate, although your comment

The following information appears to to have been written by companies and organizations advertising their services. Take it with several bushels of salt.

is entirely justified and implicit in every WikiTravel page. One of the missions of contributors it to give travelers some idea of how good the places mentioned in WikiTravel really are.

I hope this rather heavy greeting does not put you off, that is not the intention, rather it is to give you some direction about a different culture and attitude to the way a wiki can be used. I hope you like it here and continue to contribute. -- Huttite 18:37, 9 Oct 2004 (EDT)

I have to agree with Huttite. If you don't like what's said in an article, please, plunge forward and delete it. Really! Just rip it right out. If you can, replace it with something better, but if you don't have time, and you think the information is worthless, please just get rid of it. --Evan 14:23, 10 Oct 2004 (EDT)

Images and copyright[edit]

Alright, thanks for the advice. has licenced its images under a creative commons licence that grants permission for use with attribution, without requiring permission. This is entirely separate from normal fair use rights. Tlogmer

I am not objecting to the licencing of the images, just the fact that the licence to copy was not stated or indicated anywhere. Because some people can be upset by their copyrighted images being stolen the right to copy needs to be explicitly stated for WikiTravel images. It was the lack of a statement I had a problem with. - Huttite 22:31, 15 Oct 2004 (EDT)


My response to your comment about advertising is on the Ann Arbor talk page. Huttite 23:07, 15 Oct 2004 (EDT)
