Your user page was spammed[edit]

I was so bold to delete the spam from your user page. I blocked also the IP it was coming from for six months.It was the same IP from earlier today. --Rein N. 09:17, 30 December 2009 (EST)

Thanks! - D. Guillaime 12:20, 30 December 2009 (EST)


Hi, and thanks for taking care of that backlog on VfD! However, I just wanted to point out that anything you took action on in January should be archived to the January archives; that way, if someone views in the deletion log that a file was deleted, they can find the correct archive to look for the discussion.

Try to think! If you haven't been to a place, it is all base on simple wording that somebody like you guys telling about it, is it a proof? A good article should be supported by good photos taken on the spot to show that you have been there! If you have not even been there, what rights do you have to change some other peoples view towards it? Traveling a place is not only by visiting historical or sightseeing places, everybody have their own ways of traveling! We have the right to write and introduce people new stuffs and places, plus with a good photos. As long as the photo is non-commercialize like taking pictures of the boss with promotions or stuffs! Think carefully the whole point that we have Wikipedia or Wikitravel! You guys can carry on with what you guys thinks is right. If you keep this up, wiki travel will never be expand to a higher stage anymore! If you can't even describe the beauty of certain places or even listing!

Read Carefully:

  • Exceptions include images that are meant to be illustrative of the type of business establishment in a certain region, or those of exceptionally famous establishments.
  • Some exceptions might be for particular sports or activities or crowd scenes or illustrating some costume or uniform.

As per image policy, photos that are primarily of individual businesses, photos intended to be promotional, and photos that contain recognizable people will generally be deleted. All apply fully. -- D. Guillaime 17:02, 24 January 2011 (EST)

break tag blacklist[edit]

I'm seeing at least several dozen pages on Wikitravel shared that use the break tag (examples: Image:Norden flags.jpg, Category:Copenhagen, Template:De, Multilingual statistics). While the current spambot attack is annoying, are you sure about blacklisting a term that is in common use on valid articles? It seems like the potential for blocking valid edits would outweigh any advantage from a few spambot blocks. -- Ryan 14:56, 5 July 2011 (EDT)
