Welcome Note[edit]

Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. Thanks for for your contributions to Morocco. If you're going to continue working on Wikitravel, you may find the tips for new contributors helpful.

You should also make sure you understand our copyleft and policies and guidelines. 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 or on the talk page for the most appropriate article.

One style note: as this is a travel guide, not a travelogue, please try to avoid referring to yourself in first person. So write "the tajine is good", not "I ate a good tajine". Jpatokal 10:24, 4 Mar 2005 (EST)

Yeah, that's true. I'll go through it and fix it sometime.
I'm just putting up a photo of Tacheddirt...

Speedy Deletions[edit]

If you think pages need to be deleted, simply list them on Wikitravel:Votes for deletion. Wikitravel does not have a speedy deletion policy. Often it is quicker to make the page a redirect or orphan the page, list on Wikitravel:Votes for deletion and then replace the contents with {{vfd}}. There is no need to discuss it on the talk page if it is simply graffiti; a simple explanation on Wikitravel:Votes for deletion is enough. Thanks for the effort keeping Wikitravel tidy. -- Huttite 16:47, 5 Mar 2005 (EST)

Berlin map[edit]

Please save your Berlin map in PNG and not in JPG. The filesize will be smaller and it will look better. 12:18, 27 Mar 2005 (EST)

Done! (finally ;P) Lionfish 21:41, 5 Apr 2005 (BST)

Maps and Shanghai[edit]

There's a sort of a HOW-TO for my mapmaking technique on Image_talk:Paris.svg. I've been meaning to move it over to User:Mark/Maps and generalise it a bit more. Hopefully it will help. The main thing is that you really need to use an illustration program like Inkscape, rather than the GIMP.

Meanwhile, I'll try to do some stuff with the Shanghai page, although I think I've mostly added all the stuff I know about. I guess I can provide a bit of advice about arriving by air though, so I'll do that. -- Mark 16:08, 8 Apr 2005 (EDT)


Glad you liked the Taipei article. Actually, many of the cities in the Far East don't have rough, dangerous areas - blue colar, yes - but not dangerous. Besides Taipei, Tokyo and most Japanese cities, Singapore and even H.K. and Bangkok don't have any no-go areas. Maybe you should include East Asia in future travel plans.

Well, I'll be going to HK as part of my journey around China, I also wanted to visit a friend in Burma (Myanmar) but I just don't have the time (or money!).

deleting GuyGuide info!!![edit]

I dont understand why gayguide should not be part of the template for all cities instead of being just a part of smaller set of information? Gaypopulation has particular interest in certain bars, clubs, gay-friendly accomodation/restaurants places and is usually suffering from homophobia in many even western countries (unless thay are instructed where to be open about their identity and where to be more private).

Hope to hear back from you!

I've put up a message on the Traveller's Pub, let the community decide. IMO I don't think a whole section is needed for every type of person: Most people need the same things: A place to sleep eat etc. What people do in public is restricted in various ways whatever their gender or sexuality etc... These restrictions can be explained under 'understand'.Lionfish 11:01, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)(17:03 BST)
My response to this is also at the Traveller's Pub. Please do not feel guilty about following policy. If the article templates do not have a section then that section can be removed, or added to the template after discussion. Any relevant information (not text) that might be removed should appear elsewhere in the article, probably in a more relevant place anyway. Besides, separating out the information for a particular interest group may mean it is not available for use, or may be ignored, by others who could also benefit from that same information. -- Huttite 18:29, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)
