Thanks for your work so far on Indian destinations; looking forward to more information from your travels! --Evan 13:04, 26 November 2006 (EST)

Content and Style[edit]

While we want to be honest, the consensus is not to create negative sections like "Don't" telling people where not to go. It's better to include a fair description of the place in the "Do" listing, and let people decide for themselves whether it sounds like it's worth their time. Some people actually like tourist traps. Also, avoid using first-person comments in the articles (e.g. "I didn't get sick!") Since no one person writes a Wikitravel article, saying "I" (or even "we") doesn't make sense, because it doesn't apply to everyone who worked on the article. - Todd VerBeek 08:31, 31 May 2007 (EDT)
