Wikitravel talk:Ways to promote Wikitravel
I am wondering if it would be possible and preferred to have downloadable icons or buttons for promoting Wikitravel on websites. Just as Firexox is doing on his Spread Firefox website. I would love to put a nice icon on my blogsite, however prepared icons would be better. bujatt 13:47, 16 May 2005 (EDT)
Lists versus recommendations
I just had a great trip to San Francisco with a "Let's Go California" guidebook. In addition to just listing interesting things to do, they have a little thumbs-up logo by those exceptional things that deserve special mention, and they give the establishment a decal to put on their door. What would it take for wikitravel to have a similar recommendation system? Presumably it would require some kind of a vote, although I suppose we could seed it with suggestions from dead-tree guidebooks.
If such a system became effective, the next step would be to send out decals, which could be effective advertising of wikitravel.
(Over four years of using that guidebook, I've found the thumbs-up recommendations to be a great help, the best being a hostel overlooking Salzburg for €12 a night.) —BenFrantzDale 23:31, 18 Mar 2005 (EST)

Swept in from the Pub:
I am interested in buying a wikitravel branded piece of clothing for when I next go backpacking. However there appears to be no link on Wikitravel to anything like this. Therefore,
1) Could we create an easily found page directing people to the Cafepress.com merchandise (they have 25 products with the Wikitavel logo on it) at:http://www.cafepress.com/buy/wikitravel/-/pv_design_details/pg_/c_1/id_8949393/fpt_/opt_
2) Is there anywhere else that sells merchandise related to Wikitravel, if so, could that be listed too.
