I blocked this IP address incorrectly due to confusion over some recent vandalism to several Detroit articles. Apologies for the confusion. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:17, 6 September 2011 (EDT)

Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. However, even more important than following every guideline is to PLUNGE FORWARD and write something – someone will be along to help with the formatting later! Add your hometown, or a place you’ve visited often!

It is also a good idea to create your own account on Wikitravel because it will give you various benefits:

  1. Ability to communicate with other writers about your edits and travel tips
  2. Ability to turn off advertising in your Account Settings
  3. Credit for your travel writing/edits, which will be attributed to you rather than just an IP address
  4. Your contributions will be more trusted as you become familiar to other Wikitravelers

If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. We are looking forward to seeing you on Wikitravel! -- IBAlex

America "culture of fear" entry[edit]

According to what source is the "culture of fear" valid? Can't the same be said for ANY other country, just for different reasons (religious laws, political ideologies, etc.)? Even if it is true, the entry as it stands is highly subjective and opinionated, and a bit offensive as well. If you can give me a substantial reason why it should stay, by all means do so. If not, then I'm going to revise it so it presents the idea in a way that doesn't indicate any undue "social commentary".--The Exiled Fighter 15:25, 30 December 2012 (EST)


Hey there! You've made some awesome contributions to the travel guide. Contributions that are extremely helpful to travelers everywhere! Unfortunately, you've also made some contributions that do the exact opposite. At our very foundation we are a community of people creating a travel guide. We're not here to attack or vilify any group on their beliefs. This harms the knowledgeable environment we, you included, have managed to create. We're blocking you for a week. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out. IBcaldera (talk) 20:36, 4 September 2014 (EDT)

This is the discussion page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet, or who does not use it. We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify him/her. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
