Hi GiulioC! You removed the rating of a restaurant on Koh Phi Phi, that I changed. While I agree that taste is subjective, a lot of the other restaurants have a rating of their food as well. Why not remove it, too? And I think the volume of the music is objective and deviating from the norm enough to be mentionable. Can you please link the guidelines of Wikitravel regarding this? Thanks! 18.104.22.168 10:24, 20 June 2017 (EDT)
Hi Giulio, I am from Switzerland. Reading Russia pages I find that most of what is written reflects situation that is outdated, e.g." good hotels are difficult to find, lively Hitchhiking culture and popular coutch surfing, tipping encouraged". All of this does not correspond the reality! I also find that most of political commentary and tips on behaviour are motivated by antirussian propaganda. I used to live in Russia in 1990s. I also travelled across Russia multiple times in recent years, last time April this year. I find references to corrupt policemen and youth criminality, outdated by at least 10years. To my mind wikitravel should offer an unbiased view, provide objective information. Instead I see pictures titled with tonque in cheek mockery about Stalinist regime, only severe weather conditions, counterfeat products, lengthy outated visa procedures. Please reinstate my changes. I am a serious contributor with no intention to politisise or deface content of wikitravel pages Thank you very much. Kind regards, Alex —The preceding comment was added by Abraveheart (talk • contribs)
Hi Giulio! My name's Arkhat, I'm from Kazakhstan, and I'm working in a travel related area. We've conducted couple of customer researches recently and had various findings, on of them in particular being - lack of info on country in English. WikiTravel, Lonely planet and such do provide some basic info, but what we've found is that this basic info is enough when you travel to places like Iceland or New Zealand, in other words, more developed and common to Westerners :) But when you come to Kazakhstan, there's a bit more you need to know. So, we've decided to come up with content which only we - locals, can produce, various details and hints. We've created a newsletter of 7 letters, structured and constantly updated with information, which is too niche for for wikitravel. For example, I kid you not, last week we've received an e-mail from a customer from California, asking is it safe to come to Kazakhstan if she's openly gay, should she conceal her orientation or better not come at all. We want to place a link to our newsletter on Kazakhstani page, but we couldn't find specific rules about it. It is said in rules that we can't place links to information sources with same info, but when there are details, that are too much for a Wikitravel article, but still - essential, are we allowed to do it? See the website for yourself and let us know, or publish it yourself. http://travel.powerwifi.com Drop me a line if you with at [email protected] —The preceding comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs)
inquiry about my edit in paris page
Good day to You!
I've used this service and found that they provide a very professional service and my intention was to let the other travellers know about this. I agree this is not yellow pages but their prices are comparatively lower than some companies listed mentioned therein. So don't you find we should list the most useful services rather than listing some random ones? I can vouch for this company reliability. Let me know
