Hello, Avi8tor !
Thank you for your interesting contributions to our Marrakech article!
To help you contribute, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and our house 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 useful – someone might be along to help with the proper formatting later if we're both lucky...
Add your home town, or a place you know well or write some insider tips - but don't use first person pronouns.
It was a good idea to create your own user account on Wikitravel because it will now provide you various benefits:
Hello! I just came across your user page. Wow, you traveled a lot! We would love to see your contributions on Wikitravel! Please share your knowledge with other travelers in this community. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me. Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 15:23, 7 March 2014 (EST)
I assume that you are used to US-centric manuals of styles and editing at Wikipedia. Ours is slightly different.
For example, we prefer not use spaces (even if they are non-breaking spaces) between the amount and its unit and US English should not be used in South African articles if you know enough to use South African English spelling and idioms - if not, don't worry, just add good content and hopefully someone will be along later to do the copyediting. --Ttcf (talk) 05:29, 20 April 2014 (EDT)
The world needs standards because everyone has their own ideas, ISO is a consensus ironed out by many people which is why I support it. South Africa is one of the few English Speaking countries (I realise there are other languages in SA) that uses a space to separate digits instead of a comma, this is also an ISO standard, even adopted in the USA, it's just not well known elsewhere except Europe. If ISO does not address an issue it means they allow local standards, like where to place the currency symbol, before or after the amount. The same with spelling, it follows local standards. I don't use US centric styles, so i don't know where you got that from. Avi8tor (talk) 08:52, 20 April 2014 (EDT)
One other point when re reading your comments. Some of the most innumerate people on the planet are journalists, their style guides are terrible. Look at the AP style guide which list kph as acceptable instead of the correct km/h. Avi8tor (talk) 08:55, 20 April 2014 (EDT)
