Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. If you want to specialize your experience you may want to consider editing your preferences. Please take a second 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're new to the whole wiki community look at the Wiki markup to get an idea of how to use the wiki markup. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.-- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 11:37, 6 August 2006 (EDT)

I second the welcome, but one thing: Please make sure the (excellent) photos you're uploading are accompanied by appropriate release language. We follow a copyleft policy that requires certain things to be done to release the photos into the public domain -- as they must be, since we're a free-access outfit. You can review that copyleft link and then either re-submit the photos checking the appropriate box to release them, or go in after they're on line and add release language, but please do something, as otherwise the photos are at risk of deletion. Thanks for the good work! -- Bill-on-the-Hill 11:46, 6 August 2006 (EDT)

Philippines & Copyleft[edit]

Hi and welcome! Thanks for starting several new articles for the Philippines, it's an area that needs more coverage! Unfortunately it looks like a lot of the content you've added comes from other travel websites. If you are the copyright holder, please make a note on the talk page that you're releasing the content under our Wikitravel:Copyright, otherwise it will need to be deleted and rewritten as an orginal work. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks again! Maj 07:08, 22 August 2006 (EDT)

Hi Allan! To reiterate the above comments, I've listed some of the images you've uploaded on the Wikitravel:Votes for deletion page because they seem to have come from various web sites. A lot of people are unfamiliar with copyright and upload images to Wikitravel without realizing our license means we cannot use them here, so if that is the case with these images we'll need to delete them. If you have rights to license these images under the CC-SA license let us know and we can then keep them. -- Ryan 13:56, 22 August 2006 (EDT)
