Hello EmceeInPRC! Welcome to Wikitravel. To help you start 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. The owners of hotels, restaurants, bars, attractions, and other businesses useful to travellers can share information that helps others in their travels. However, they should adhere strictly to our policies and guidance. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. GiulioC (talk) 04:08, 30 June 2014 (EDT)

Don't tout[edit]

Please do not insert the same listing on multiple pages as this is considered touting. Take your time and read our policies linked above. Thanks, GiulioC (talk) 04:08, 30 June 2014 (EDT)

Hi GiulioC, thanks for pointing out the various policies governing WikiTravel. I'm a big fan of the website, and wanted to clarify appropriate use of multiple listings. I acknowledge that the same service listed on multiple pages is touting. But I run a business which has distinctly separate teams operating in multiple cities in China. Each team has city-specific expertise (for example, our Shanghai team is aware of Shanghai's local industries which our Beijing team does not have expertise in). What would you then recommend as the best way to ensure visitors to each of these cities are aware of this interpretation service? Thanks! -Matt

Hello Matt! Our rule is that we do not allow the same listings on multiple pages, and I can't find a specific address for your business on the other cities (maybe you don't have a "real" office). But I understand your point, and the service your company offers can be really useful. So, my suggestion is to re-insert the listing on the main China page and point out in which cities the company operates. I hope this is clear, if you're not happy with this you can always open a discussion on the travellers' pub. Kind regards, GiulioC (talk) 03:25, 1 July 2014 (EDT)
Thanks! I have followed your suggestion. Much appreciated, and let me know if you ever come to China! Kind regards, EmceeInPRC 16:48, 1 July 2014 (EDT)
