These are some agreed-upon policies that we use for developing Wikitravel. If you have a question about the specifics of these policies, or want to see them changed/amended/clarified, use the discussion page of the particular policy or post in the Travellers' Pub. A list of issues currently being discussed can be found here.
- All Wikitravel content is 100% free. No copyrighted work can be included in Wikitravel without the express permission of the copyright holder to license it under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike License 3.0. See shared:Copyleft for details.
- The text should be fair. We try to maintain a professional attitude towards all topics, and give an objective description of it. This doesn't mean watering down our guide -- if some place is smelly, overpriced, ugly, loud, or just plain bad, we tell it like it is. But there are no whetstones here; people with axes to grind should set up their own personal Web sites. See Wikitravel:Be fair for details.
- Content should target our goals. Everything put into Wikitravel should help us meet our goal of making a free, complete, up-to-date, and reliable travel guide. Content that doesn't help us do that doesn't have a place in Wikitravel.
- Text and images should follow style guidelines. With rare exception, text and images should follow our Manual of style. Exceptions should gain wide consensus; in cases of controversy, our style manual should prevail.
- Internet Brands believes there is enough room for multiple travel sites to co-exist, and for community members to contribute to multiple sites in this area.
