BEFORE YOU EDIT THE MAIN PAGE: Please refer to the Main Page guidelines before editing the Main Page.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please take general discussions about Wikitravel to the travellers' pub. This talk page should be about the Main Page itself, not about Wikitravel in general. -- Evan 11:18, 3 Oct 2003 (PDT)

Wikitravel Press and Extra into Featured articles?

Any objections to adding a Wikitravel Press one-liner to "Featured articles"? I was thinking along these lines:

Books from Wikitravel Press:
Chicago, Singapore, more

More on Wikitravel Extra:
blogs, forum, photos

Opinions? Jpatokal 00:01, 1 February 2008 (EST)

At the moment, with Wikitravel Press being the only one producing books, I don't have any specific problem with that, but as soon as there are more everyone will want to use the limited space in Featured articles. Maybe we should look at creating a Get your wikitravel hardcopy link from the main page to somewhere (travel topic maybe?) that contains detailed information about all places one can buy wikitravel articles in book form. Wikitravel Press may be the first, but with the quality of articles constantly improving and it being easy to reuse, I'm sure others will follow soon. --Nick 02:21, 1 February 2008 (EST)
Actually, Wikitravel Press has an exclusive license with IB, so no, I don't think we'll see competitors on anytime soon. (To be clear: there's nothing at all stopping you from making your guidebook. However, the site, the logo and the name are IB's, so you can't call it "Wikitravel" and neither can you advertise it here without their permission.) Jpatokal 03:26, 1 February 2008 (EST)
Ah, in that case I can't see any problem with using Featured articles then, since it will only be Wikitravel press --Nick 03:44, 1 February 2008 (EST)

Bump. Any other opinions? I'd also like to add Extra and have updated the demo above. Jpatokal 05:14, 13 February 2008 (EST)

That seems reasonable to me. Gorilla Jones 08:07, 13 February 2008 (EST)
OK by me. OldPine 13:49, 13 February 2008 (EST)
Done. Jpatokal 12:28, 23 February 2008 (EST)

Page protection.

I have placed a one-month protection against anonymous users editing this talk page due to continuous vandalism (see Wikitravel:Protected page policy) and also because the vandalism appears to be from Spambots (a violation of the Wikitravel:Script policy). Since the script appears to use anonymous proxies, we cannot screen them without also harming individuals who legitimately use anonymous proxies. -- Colin 21:26, 6 February 2008 (EST)
