Hello Shoestring!

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.

Thank you for contributing to Taiwan. -- Huttite 02:20, 26 Jun 2005 (EDT)

Nothing wrong[edit]

I looked at Wikishared and saw you were editing my contributions under 2old or Mike Sharp. My concern was that I did something wrong. If I have, please advise and I will correct it in the future. But, again, you did nothing wrong, I thought I did. Have a good day there in Japan. Here in Ohio it is 85 degrees (hot) and I am going to go out and enjoy it. 2old 11:02, 4 August 2007 (EDT)


Hello Shoestring! I have recently checked the Japanese Wikitravel and I noticed that you are a very active contributor over there. I highly appreciate your support on the site! As a result, Japanese Wikitravel has recently become one of the most developed and best maintained foreign version of Wikitravel. Congratulations and thank you! ( ありがとう ). I would appreciate if you can let me know if the other administrators on the Japanese Wikitravel speak also English.

I would love to keep in touch with you and talk a little bit about the Japanese site.

Cheers! IBAlex 20:16, 18 October 2012 (EDT)

Sitenotice on JA WT[edit]

The Sitenotice was changed. Please have a look. Is it fine right now? Cheers! IBAlex 12:23, 29 November 2012 (EST)

spam filter[edit]

Hi, I noticed your message on IBAlex talk page about the spam filter. Our technical department is currently working on a bug that is affecting the adding of external links, hopefully after tomorrow it will be fixed so please try again then. I am sure IBAlex will respond to you as well but just so you are aware. Thanks for all your work!! Adzas (talk) 06:43, 4 October 2015 (EDT)

Last message[edit]

Hello Shoestring! Please see my message here. All the best! IBAlex (talk) 17:52, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

Hello Shoestring! How are you? I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Please let me know if you are still encountering any issues with JA: Wikitravel? I'm happy to help. Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 11:17, 31 October 2015 (EDT)


Hello Shoestring, I noticed your message about spam and who to contact. Our main contacts now are Tyen (talk) and Tonikar (talk) I know the spam issue is being looked at, on some of the other language versions we have seen increased spam too. Thanks for bringing it up! Adzas (talk) 10:18, 10 April 2017 (EDT)

Hi Adzas, thank you for your suggestion. I'm trying to get in touch with them (since your talk page have protected, I leave my response here).--Shoestring (talk) 10:11, 11 April 2017 (EDT)
Hey Shoestring, I just wanted to introduce myself! I'm Tonikar! Like Adzas has said, we have seen an influx of spam on some of the other language versions. We are diligently working towards a solution. Thanks for letting us know! Tonikar (talk) 12:18, 11 April 2017 (PST)

Konnichiwa Shoestring![edit]

Hello Shoestring! Wanted to introduce myself as the newest addition to the Community Team at Internet Brands. I will be helping out with taking on some of the lead for Wikitravel. Looking forward to learning more about you and getting to know the rest of the community in Japan. Feel free to say hi on my user page as well! IB hill (talk) 19:38, 29 March 2018 (EDT)IB_Hill

Updates about bugs[edit]

Hey Shoestring!

Just sending an update that we're expecting a software update next week and hope it will fix some issues. When the update is happening, please let me know if there are any other issues that you and the rest of JA community encounters. In terms of the "Do not add ads" column and Breadcrumbs issue that you addressed as urgent, I'm tracing back to our past reports and will make sure for any problems regarding these two will be a major priority for our team. Please reach out to me at anytime! IB hill (talk) 20:13, 6 April 2018 (EDT)IB_Hill

こんにちは、Aiko99annです。日本語版ではなくこちらで書いたほうが良さそうと思って失礼します。今般のウィキヴォヤージュの件、先走ったような対応をしていることを自覚しています、ご容赦ください。IBのアンナさんは退職したようなのですが、彼女のトークページで本件について議論をしています。よろしければ加わっていただけませんでしょうか。 --Aiko99ann (talk) 21:35, 14 August 2020 (EDT)

メッセージを続けて失礼します。User talk:IBanna‎でJoelさんが、私とshoestringさんからメールを送ってほしいとお書きになっています。私は、IB社の方にならメールアドレスが知れても良いかと思っています(ユーザー登録のときに使っていますし)が、このやり方だと私とshoestringさんもお互いのアドレスが判る状態になります。私はWT用に使っているメールアドレスなので別に構わないのですが、もしshoestringさんにご迷惑をおかけするようなら、ひとまず私だけで彼らとメールのやりとりをしようかと思います。 --Aiko99ann (talk) 21:26, 17 August 2020 (EDT)
Hello Shoestring! I am sure you have seen the discussion going on both here and in the Travellers’ pub on the JA version. I am also one of the admins here and on some other language versions, and usually when we have discussions like the one going on now, started by user Tmv, we remove it and/or block the person starting it, as we don’t see that kind of approach as appropriate. As both you and Aiko99ann (talk) are our valued administrators on the Japanese version, feel free to take action as you see appropriate, maybe you prefer first to leave a message to user Tmv but if you want to block someone, you (or Aiko99ann) can do that too. If you need further assistance from any of us please let us know, we are all part of the same team so here to help each other. Looking forward to your input! Adzas (talk) 04:24, 19 August 2020 (EDT)
