Hello, Kwik517! Welcome to Wikitravel.

To help get you started contributing, we've created 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.

I encourage you to take a look at Welcome, business owners, and to especially look at Wikitravel:Don't tout. Adding a listing for your company across numerous articles is considered spamming. Also, consider using our Wikitravel:Listings (click "add listing") to auto-format your additions in the way Wikitravel likes them. Thanks! --Peter Talk 22:07, 28 April 2009 (EDT)

Please stop adding your site to multiple articles. It is welcome in the article for the city in which your business is located, but absolutely not across multiple pages, per Wikitravel:Don't tout (in case you missed this policy link in the earlier comment...). If you continue edit warring, we may add it to our spam blacklist, which will hurt your search engine ranking. --Peter Talk 02:44, 29 April 2009 (EDT)
If you have staging locations in multiple towns (offices are not necessarily travel-relevant), then it should be ok to add your listing to each town. That is, only for the towns from which travelers would begin their trip with you. For additional camps, if they are part of the itinerary, rather than separate from it, I don't think they need to be included. If they absolutely do, then simply reference them in the town article that includes your staging location. Region articles should, as a rule, be reserved for general descriptions of what is available, not for individual listings. --Peter Talk 03:37, 29 April 2009 (EDT)
I do think it would be appropriate to add your listing to the articles that have the three offices, although the locations of overnight/drop-off facilities do not strike me as necessary (and therefore not desirable), as travelers can clearly get that information from either your offices or the linked url. Not the region article though; I tried to make the information more easy to find at South_Central_Colorado#Do, in general prose. --Peter Talk 19:33, 29 April 2009 (EDT)
By the way, you can auto-sign your comments by adding four tildes (~~~~). --Peter Talk 19:34, 29 April 2009 (EDT)


Hi. I notice you've removed the text on white water rafting on the Colorado a couple of times. Is there any reason you're removing this text? It's been put back in twice now; firstly by a site admin, and now by myself. If there is a reason, please state in the change summary box, or let us know here, otherwise the text will keep being re-instated on the page. Nrms 02:28, 29 April 2009 (EDT)

My apologies... Think I need more coffee! Mis-read the direction of the edits. I've put most of the text back in, but I've removed the external link and toned down some of the text. I suspect it was removed partly because of the external link which possibly didn't meet policy, and some may interpret it as being a little tout-ish. Hopefully what I've added will work as a compromise between what you originally said and for keeping in line withe the site style and policy. Nrms 02:44, 29 April 2009 (EDT)

Please be more careful...[edit] just deleted half the Whitewater sports article. (I've repaired the damage.) Jpatokal 04:41, 6 May 2009 (EDT)
