Hi Riyadhman! Welcome to Wikitravel.

To help you start contributing, we've created a quick contribution guide and 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.

The owners of hotels, restaurants, bars, attractions, and other businesses useful to travellers can share information that helps others in their travels. However, they should adhere strictly to our policies and guidance.

If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. --Binbin (talk) 06:19, 26 February 2016 (EST) ThanksRiyadhman (talk) 15:13, 26 February 2016 (EST)

Hi[edit]

Hey there, I got your message on my talk page thanks for reaching out! Alrighty so what's the issue? I looked through your edit history and it seems like your warning boxes for LGBT visitors are sensible. There's a small part that reads "all businesses don't serve gays so you will not get service," and unfortunately that's a very general statement that we can't host. Apart from that, the warning boxes seem fine. Are you seeing other changes to your posts?

Also I'm not Diablo, I'm IBcaldera (an admin for Wikitravel and the point of contact to Internet Brands). IBcaldera (talk) 16:56, 26 February 2016 (EST)

I was making sure the edit was allowed and also defending myself fending off personal attacks from diablo and you were attached to the conversation But since I have your attention see ny question on the Riyadh article http://wikitravel.org/en/Talk:Saudi_Arabia#Western_compounds
I just replied, check it out! IBcaldera (talk) 20:04, 26 February 2016 (EST)

Warning Boxes[edit]

The LGBT warning boxes you have posted on multiple pages contain harsh speech and generalized data. Although some of your warnings might have truth, Wikitravel content should NOT discourage anybody from visiting a destination. Consider rewording your contributions to use language similar to the following...

"Certain areas of the United States, including the southern regions and rural areas of the Midwest, typically carry more socially conservative views. While the LGBT community is gaining more widespread acceptance, travelers are advised to avoid public displays of affection."

IBrobin (talk) 18:33, 16 June 2016 (EDT) It is allowed when safety is involved and in places where even private displays of same-sex relations can lead to harassment, jail or death. I toned it slightly down but that's the most I can do while still staying truthful to the situation. Truth and cautions of safety are not homophobic, I will not put up with people using words to try to guilt trip me into sugarcoating warnings. Putting in the true possible results of actions is not something that can be considered offensive. Riyadhman (talk) 21:38, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
