Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. Your edits on the Somalia page have been reverted. We have s separate article about Mogadishu so I´m not sure why info about Somalia was replaced with info about this locations. To help you further contributing, we've created a quick contribution guide and 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. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. -- Adzas (talk) 07:49, 7 May 2016 (EDT)

About your contributions to Mogadishu[edit]

Hi BillBancroft, thank you for your contributions to Mogadishu, but unfortunately I have to revert them as Adzas did here. I do believe that your intention is good, but I also do believe that you lack proper knowledge of our policies and guidelines and style. Specifically policies about the following:

About I think you also need to have a look at what Wikitravel is about, its goals and non-goals, which you should keep in mind when you contribute. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me or you can ask on Travellers' pub so people will help you out. Hope you find above info helpful and that we will see your contributions soon. Cheers! --Binbin (talk) 02:16, 8 May 2016 (EDT)

Hi, reading your messages to various admins here, if an article is outdated I totally agree with you that information should be updated, but when doing so, don´t remove large blocks of info at a time, just update some information, following our policies and guidelines as mentioned above. Always describe in the summary why something was removed (hotel closed, bar out of business etc etc) so we all know why updates were made. Questions about the content of an article are best asked on the discussion page of an article, so other contributors can also participate in the discussion. Thanks!
