Hi there. Thanks for your contributions to Wikitravel. Please have a look at our Copyleft license. You have been contributing hotel descriptions that are violations of copyright law. You'll save us a lot of deletion work if you'd write your own descriptions of these places, as we cannot allow those copied descriptions to stay. Thanks! Texugo 05:15, 2 October 2007 (EDT)

Please please please stop doing this. It only a waste of your time and ours because the copied text is just going to get deleted by us over and over and over. Texugo 03:06, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

Useless waffle[edit]

Hello again

As well as reviewing your past edits and looking at what happened to them (see Wikitravel:How to handle unwanted edits for a better understanding), may I suggest that you familiarise yourself with the following guidelines. The first three are especially relevant:

  • Wikitravel:Copyleft - EXTREMELY important! - NEVER copy and paste work from other websites - this INCLUDES hotel descriptions from the website of the hotel, hotel review websites, travel forums, etc - Wikitravel cannot accept any of this content.
  • Wikitravel:Tone - NEVER use promotional waffle such as At the Holiday Inn Express Anderson (I-85, Exit 27), South Carolina, you’ll discover an outstanding hotel experience, enhanced by our Clemson University and Anderson University surrounds and exciting getaway packages. ([1] and [2]) - this is completely useless and is exactly what Wikitravel DOES NOT WANT. Leave the description completely blank unless you've actually stayed there and have some useful information to contribute.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask them here: Wikitravel:Travellers' pub

Hope this helps. ~ 08:10, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

City/State/Zip in listings[edit]

Please do not add them. See this for proper format (or look at some other listings). Thanks -OldPine 07:47, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

You persist in ignoring this and several other Wikitravel conventions. I'm inclined to start reverting your listings in their entirety if you don't comply. OldPine 07:28, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
