I don't get it: why write scuba in capitals? Rmx 07:16, 6 Dec 2005 (EST)

Well, it is technically short for Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. It's long since been absorbed into English though (compare "radar" and "laser") and I'm tempted to mass-revert all of these edits... Jpatokal 07:22, 6 Dec 2005 (EST)
Yah, but it's an accepted acronyms not an abbreviation so it should be lower case (See any dictionary or the Chicago Manual of Style for more info...). Majnoona 11:49, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)

Will you please discuss major changes like changing the names of Thailand's regions or capitalizing "SCUBA" in every single article on Wikitravel?? And go sign up for an account so we can actually hold a rational discussion. Jpatokal 11:53, 6 Dec 2005 (EST)

Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. I want to thank you so much for all your edits! As a bad speller myself I really appreciate (sp?) your contributions. As you are making so many contributions it might help if you set up a user account that will provide you with a user page where you can tell us a little about yourself (if you want!) and a talk page.

Please take a sec to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. 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. --Majnoona 11:49, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)
