Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. If you want to specialize your experience you may want to consider editing your preferences. Please take a second to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. Scanning the Manual of style, especially the article templates, can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted. If you're new to the whole wiki community look at the Wiki markup to get an idea of how to use the wiki markup. If you need help, check out the help desk, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.-- Sapphire 15:40, 15 September 2006 (EDT)

Official Extlinks[edit]

Check out Wikitravel:External links for how to place and format external links to a City's Official Website or the Chamber of Commerce. Basically, they both go right after the city name at the top of the page like this:

Kodiak [1] [2] is in south western Alaska.

Also it looks like your doing a lot of online research to find websites for things. It would be even more useful if you were to copy the addresses and phone numbers off the websites and format stuff as Wikitravel:Attraction listings or Wikitravel:Accommodation listings and so forth. We want wikitravel to be useful when printed out and used on the road, and sometimes you have a car&map or phone, but no internet connection. -- Colin 18:17, 15 September 2006 (EDT)

Photo Copyrights[edit]

Please make sure you annotate your uploaded photographs with information regarding who the photographers is or where you got the image, who holds the copyright, and what license is permitted for the photo. This way we have documentation that these aren't just some googled images that we have no legal right to have on this website (and if you made an error, just let us know and we'll clean them up.) Any photos without copyright info will be deleted per policy. Check out Wikitravel:Copyleft. -- Colin 18:20, 15 September 2006 (EDT)

It's easy to fix. First, go to here which will show you a list of all photos you've uploaded. Go to each of them and click "edit" at the top, then you can type in some description text that will show up with your photo on the image page. You can add a quickie license by typing {{cc-by-sa}} into the text which will place a copyright license notice into the web page (Check Wikitravel:Copyleft if you want to better understand the terms you are licensing your stuff under). Be sure to mention that you took it.
Thanks so much for sharing your photos with us! -- Colin 18:35, 15 September 2006 (EDT)
Thanks! That clears everything up! -- Colin 19:25, 15 September 2006 (EDT)
