Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a sec 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 need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.
Also, thanks for improving the Gunbarrel Highway article. I have one question, though. I see that you converted some numbers to words (e.g. "16" -> "sixteen"). Is there an accepted rule for this in English? (Like, say, from 0 to 20 and then 30, 40, etc... are written as words, and everything else as numbers.) DhDh 15:13, 28 Nov 2003 (PST)
I will try to answer your question on my talk page soon. Right now I really don't have the time for it. Sorry!
Hi, I've noticed you've been editing Leeds a lot. I have placed a listing in the sleep section - we have a number of locations in the city though so couldn't 'fit' the site into budget, mid-range or splurge - so created a different listing under Self Catering. I noticed there is another serviced apartment in splurge and was thinking should I move this into self catering to or leave it where it was?
Our customised listings engine
You've been around even longer than me; where can I find and edit our customised listings engine, please?
You know, the one that, if one wants to add a new listing, one clicks on the blue [add listing] part next to the appropriate section header of See, Do, Buy, Eat, Drink or Sleep and a box pops up where one can easily enter the listing details. --118dot93dot73dot30 22:49, 13 April 2013 (EDT)

I'd appreciate your input here at User_talk:IBAlex#Blocking_users_from_editing_their_own_talk_page, Nurg. --118dot93dot73dot30 22:08, 19 April 2013 (EDT)
Nurg, your admin rights were just granted! Congratulations! We are happy to welcome you in the administrator's team. One big request to you- when you delete spam pages, please always remember to block the user who created them (block user accounts indefinitely and IP addresses for 3 months).

Temporary protection request for Bouvet Island
Odd as it may seem, Bouvet Island is the current target for IP (and new account) vandalism. Would you protect this version for 10 days from edits by folks who are not Autoconfirmed users please? --W. Franke-mailtalk 09:47, 17 May 2013 (EDT)
Thank you, Nurg
Your assistance required on the Texas page
Diablo234 is deleting various items from the page claiming "inaccurate info" although I told him you have to be able to prove it's wrong and he refuses but continues to remove info at random be a troll. Just because someone has an opinion doesn't make it fact. If you can't prove it's wrong it stays up until you have a source backing up your words, that only makes sense right? We've been in an edit war and I've been struggling to preserve the page from his vandalism. Please help. Thanks126.96.36.199 22:51, 8 September 2015 (EDT)
This was my response to the above user. 188.8.131.52 22:51, 8 September 2015 (EDT)
The entire section you added/edited was horribly inaccurate and to claim that the entire state is somehow homophobic is idiotic at best when there are several gay elected officials currently serving in various capacities within the local government. Anyways here is my proof since you asked.
People come to Wikitravel to gain access to accurate information, what changes you made were just borderline trolling to say the least and defeats the whole purpose of this site (and I suspect you probably have not lived in or even visited Texas enough to give an accurate portrayal on that topic). Anyways I gave my reasons already so if you make any changes to that article again with out discussing it with me or other people further I will report you to the admins.Diablo234 (talk) 02:43, 9 September 2015 (EDT)
We're happy to see you back on Wikitravel and wanted to drop by to say hello :) Also, I noticed that you recently archived some 2016 Traveller's pub content and wanted to find out why. I trust your judgement since you're a seasoned user, but we also wanted to keep that content until 2016 was over. But again, we're glad to see you back! IBkataoka (talk) 18:59, 9 September 2016 (EDT)
Hi Nurg! Me again :-) Just wanted to say thank you for your generous and continuous contributions to Wikitravel. We're glad to have people like you in our Wikitravel community. To express our appreciation, we'd like to send you a small holiday gift. If you are interested, please reach me at mayu.kataoka (at) internetbrands.com and provide me with an address I can send your gift to! Hope you are having a good holiday season. --IBkataoka (talk) 20:17, 28 November 2016 (EST)

If you have any questions, suggestions or just want to chat, feel free to reach out to me on my [[User Talk:IB_Hill|talk page). Would love to hear from you! :) -- IB hill (talk) 14:15, 4 April 2018 (EDT)IB_Hill
