Hello Poppleton1! 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.

Hey Aaron, I just wanted to let you know that I had to delete the google maps image of Chemnitz that you had uploaded, as it is copyrighted by Google. --Peter Talk 12:43, 31 August 2007 (EDT)

Hi! On the license front, because of the license which Wikitravel uses, all text/images/maps etc have to be either owned by the contributer or a compatible copyright... Unfortunately, the Google map license isn't compatible. However, have a look at the Wikimedia Commons because they sometimes have maps and photos we can use. Ones we can use are licensed under Creative Commons Share Alike, usually shortened to CCbySA or something similar.
Also on the subject of images, in future please can you upload them to Wikitravel Shared? Shared is the shared image repository for all the language versions, meaning that people from the various different language versions can use them as well! -- Tim (writeme!) 12:49, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
