Listings[edit]

Hi, before adding your listing to more articles, please have a look at our guidelines first. As you are adding the same text to multiple pages it starts to look like advertising, which is against our policies. Also, if a service is readily available we don’t want long lists in the articles, so if a few options are given already, then don’t add more. Also have a look at these guidelines. Happy editing!

Also, as for example the mentioned shuttle seems to operate between Cesky Krumlov and many other places, it makes more sense to just add it to that article only. Travellers who are there could find it useful, but don’t just keep adding it (also when it has been reverted several times) for the sake of advertising. Help us write valuable information about the various locations, that adds much more value. Adzas (talk) 10:03, 5 April 2019 (EDT)
I am very sorry for having edited the articles wrongly, but as you can see, there are many other shuttle companies mentioned in all of those articles (that I was trying to edit). I just wanted the travellers to have more various options. I wonder, why the other companies are not considered advertising as well. I apologize again. User: KrisK 16:25, 5 April 2019
Thanks for answering! I have started to remove some of the other companies as well, that takes time to review all of them. Yours stood out as it appeared in so many articles with the same text. When adding a listing our main objective is to add companies that are located in the location of the article. Online booking sites we try to avoid. If there is a location with no transportation options at all we take that into consideration, but otherwise a listing is removed. I hope this helps!Adzas (talk) 10:32, 5 April 2019 (EDT)
