Hello, Mahindrahomestays! 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.

Please see our Wikitravel:Don't tout policy. We highly discourage booking agency listings, and if such listings are added en masse they must be properly formatted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:16, 17 May 2010 (EDT)

I've blacklisted your site in order to avoid wasting more of your (and our) time. When listings are mass-updated they must be properly formatted, otherwise we revert them as outlined in the SEO portion of the Wikitravel:Don't tout policy. In addition, there is some question whether homestay listings should be included in articles. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:38, 17 May 2010 (EDT)

Hi Ryan. Didn't mean to cause any issues and thought that the listings were properly formatted (I had copied other accommodation listings). We noticed on some of the Indian locations that there are homestay listings and some of the homestay owners we work with already have a listing on this site which they have submitted themselves which is great. We were including in listings links to other homestays who don't have their own websites. We have received awards for our homestay initiative which promotes responsible and fair tourism and it is certainly not the intention to tout as such. Would it be possible to have the blacklisting revoked and then to work with you on adding listings which are formatted in the appropriate manner?
