Welcome to Wikitravel[edit]

Hello Tomwebbnz! 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.

Thanks for all the cleanups to the Calendar of events and festivals! -- Wrh2 12:06, 31 Aug 2005 (EDT)


Hi Tom,

I'm not sure that Waitakere/Piha meets the criteria set forth in Wikitravel:What is an article?. Attractions, such as a beach, are almost always listed in the town or region that contains them, with exceptions made for attractions that aren't located anywhere near a town such as Stonehenge, or huge attractions such as Disneyland. The reasoning behind that is it is more convenient for travelers if each Wikitravel article is a comprehensive guide, thus putting all information in one place where it can be easily printed. If Piha doesn't meet the article criteria then it should be marked for deletion and added to Wikitravel:Votes for deletion. If you feel that it is worth keeping it might be useful to provide a note about why this beach is different on its talk page. -- Wrh2 02:04, 1 Sep 2005 (EDT)

  • Thanks for the heads up. I felt that Piha warranted its own article as alot of people coming to Piha (which is an isolated community from the rest of Auckland) are surfers, whose only purpose is to go to Piha. Therefore wanted to build it into a more comprehensive article for them. Will make mention of this fact in talk page. --Tomwebbnz 15:32, 2 Sep 2005 (EDT)
