Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. Thanks for plunging forward so far. 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.

It's nice that your first day participating has you so involved in policy issues already! --Evan 15:50, 17 Nov 2004 (EST)

I don't know what the future holds, but I have recently become active in copyright policy on the English Wikipedia, and the rambot articles could conceivably be interesting enough to use on WikiTravel in some form or another, so I have been working to dual-license those articles into the CC-by-sa v.1.0 license. People travel to cities, so if the city articles can be copied/used from the English Wikipedia, that may be helpful. -- Ram-Man 16:12, 17 Nov 2004 (EST)


So, one thing to get clear: you can't re-license someone else's copylefted work under a new license. So, your dual license can only apply to work you start yourself. Please see Wikitravel:dual licensing for advice on how to do this. --Evan 15:59, 17 Nov 2004 (EST)

No, I do understand this. What I am suggesting is that all NEW edits and contributions be dual-licensed under version 1.0 and version 2.0 of the license. All OLD edits cannot be migrated to 2.0 unless explicit permission is given. -- Ram-Man 16:09, 17 Nov 2004 (EST)
See my discussion on the copyleft page. After reading your explanation, mandatory dual-licensing may not work out. And I'd rather discuss it there than here. -- Ram-Man 16:51, 17 Nov 2004 (EST)
