Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a sec 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 need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub. Thank you for contributing to the Twin Cities and related articles! -- Jonboy 05:52, 16 May 2006 (EDT)

Minneapolis/Eat Street[edit]


Thanks for all your good work on Minneapolis/Eat Street. Unfortunately I have put it up for deletion because we don't usually have articles on individual streets, but usually on larger areas. I could of course be wrong... Please add any comments about this on the Wikitravel:Votes for deletion page. -- DanielC 08:15, 29 August 2006 (EDT)

Windsor (Ontario)[edit]

I've reverted some of your edits to the Windsor article and a few other user's edits. I'm confused about your edits, though. Is there a particular reason why you decoded the listings on the article? Those listings, greatly improved the consistency of manual of style and overall look of the guide and decoding several of the listings throw off the look, in my opinion. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:55, 6 September 2006 (EDT)

San Diego[edit]

Try again now, please. --Jonboy 12:40, 26 March 2008 (EDT)

San Francisco/Fisherman's Wharf[edit]

Hey, thanks for fixing the Alcatraz listing per MoS at Fisherman's Wharf...looks better now! Asterix 15:24, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

San Francisco[edit]

I want to thank you for everything you've done to format the listings on the San Francisco district articles. The level of care you've put into it, fixing all those listings, just amazes me, so thank you. :) PerryPlanet 13:21, 30 August 2008 (EDT)

Ditto, impressive work! --Peter Talk 17:21, 30 August 2008 (EDT)

Chicago redirects[edit]

Wow! Are you planning to do every neighborhood / community area? Gorilla Jones 20:31, 5 September 2009 (EDT)

Brooklyn districts[edit]

A big thanks for the districting work you are doing! I've been meaning to help out too, although I've been distracted lately by the London cotm. I'll be sure to pitch in what I can once I have more time. --Peter Talk 16:47, 11 December 2009 (EST)

IATA vs. ICAO[edit]

Hi, Eco84. Directing your attention to a thread at the Pub: Wikitravel:Travellers' pub#IATA vs. ICAO. Thanks! LtPowers 18:42, 26 January 2010 (EST)


Hey. I just want to thank you for your efforts in implementing routebox navigation. I've done quite a bit of it myself, and I know how tedious it can be sometimes, so your work is well appreciated! Cheers! Texugo 02:27, 1 March 2010 (EST)

Major/Minor destination[edit]

On closer examination of what you're doing, I'd like to ask you to please always include 2 destinations in each directions, if there are two. If both of them are actually major destinations, put the closer one in the minor slot and bold it. For guidelines or more info please review Wikitravel:Routebox navigation. Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work! Texugo 09:56, 1 March 2010 (EST)

IsPartOf changes[edit]

Hi, Eco84. Changes such as this one should be completely unnecessary; why did you make it? LtPowers 09:43, 17 November 2010 (EST)

No, IsPartOf was created explicitly so that we didn't need the underscores, which IsIn requires. =) To fix the breadcrumbs, you have to start higher up in the hierarchy and purge the cache, working your way back down. Like to fix the breadcrumbs on, say, Buffalo (New York), you'd have to start by purging Mid-Atlantic (or higher or lower in the hierarchy), then New York (state), then Niagara Frontier, and then Buffalo. LtPowers 20:54, 17 November 2010 (EST)


You didn't fill in any destinations for the 495 routebox. Do you happen to know what they are? Texugo 00:22, 21 December 2010 (EST)

Thanks! Texugo 01:07, 21 December 2010 (EST)

Houston Routebox Changes[edit]

Hello there. I just noticed around Dec. 7th you changed the routebox info for I-10 between Houston and Beaumont, Texas to include Baytown. I also noticed on I-45 (between Houston and Dallas) you changed Corsicana to Mustang. I was just wondering why? Army of me 21:10, 3 February 2011 (EST)

Actually maybe I figured it out; I'm guessing you added in the next closest city on those highways that had a Wikitravel article created. Am I right? Army of me 21:14, 3 February 2011 (EST)

Glacier border towns[edit]

Thanks for the route cleanups on some of the Glacier National Park border towns. While creating those articles and moving some listings over the weekend I was acutely aware that "town" is a very relative term in this case, but given the precedent of moving listings that aren't within the actual park borders for Yosemite National Park and other parks I'm hoping this cleanup will reduce some of the spammy listings we've gotten in the main national park article, and keep the focus of that article on the park and not on the myriad hotels and restaurants that do business around it. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:21, 26 April 2011 (EDT)


Great work on the districts in Montréal, that was long overdue. Maybe the districts discussion could be revived completely? --globe-trotter 15:20, 22 October 2011 (EDT)

Chicago updates[edit]

A huge thank you from me for your recent and diligent Chicago updates! One very small thing I wanted to point out, though, is that price ranges should be $5-10, not $5-$10, and times should be noon-8PM, not 12-8PM. --Peter Talk 21:55, 17 April 2012 (EDT)

Routebox barnstar[edit]


Since their introduction the routeboxes have become a hugely useful navigational aid, and filled a hole in Wikitravel that sorely needed addressing. Your ongoing work with them has been extremely impressive, so in following a long and bizarre wiki tradition, here's a picture of a barnstar to show appreciation. Great job in tackling a tedious but hugely valuable task! -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:05, 7 May 2012 (EDT)

As the one who came up with the original idea for routeboxes, I'd like to second the barnstar. I hope routebox coverage will one day be fairly comprehensive, and you're doing a lot to get us there. Thanks a lot! texugo 17:45, 13 June 2012 (EDT)
