Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. 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. Thank you for contributing to the Twin Cities and related articles! -- Jonboy 05:52, 16 May 2006 (EDT)

Minneapolis/Eat Street


Thanks for all your good work on Minneapolis/Eat Street. Unfortunately I have put it up for deletion because we don't usually have articles on individual streets, but usually on larger areas. I could of course be wrong... Please add any comments about this on the Wikitravel:Votes for deletion page. -- DanielC 08:15, 29 August 2006 (EDT)

Windsor (Ontario)

I've reverted some of your edits to the Windsor article and a few other user's edits. I'm confused about your edits, though. Is there a particular reason why you decoded the listings on the article? Those listings, greatly improved the consistency of manual of style and overall look of the guide and decoding several of the listings throw off the look, in my opinion. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:55, 6 September 2006 (EDT)

San Diego

Try again now, please. --Jonboy 12:40, 26 March 2008 (EDT)

San Francisco/Fisherman's Wharf

Hey, thanks for fixing the Alcatraz listing per MoS at Fisherman's Wharf...looks better now! Asterix 15:24, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

San Francisco

I want to thank you for everything you've done to format the listings on the San Francisco district articles. The level of care you've put into it, fixing all those listings, just amazes me, so thank you. :) PerryPlanet 13:21, 30 August 2008 (EDT)

Ditto, impressive work! --Peter Talk 17:21, 30 August 2008 (EDT)

Chicago redirects

Wow! Are you planning to do every neighborhood / community area? Gorilla Jones 20:31, 5 September 2009 (EDT)

Brooklyn districts

A big thanks for the districting work you are doing! I've been meaning to help out too, although I've been distracted lately by the London cotm. I'll be sure to pitch in what I can once I have more time. --Peter Talk 16:47, 11 December 2009 (EST)


Hi, Eco84. Directing your attention to a thread at the Pub: Wikitravel:Travellers' pub#IATA vs. ICAO. Thanks! LtPowers 18:42, 26 January 2010 (EST)


Hey. I just want to thank you for your efforts in implementing routebox navigation. I've done quite a bit of it myself, and I know how tedious it can be sometimes, so your work is well appreciated! Cheers! Texugo 02:27, 1 March 2010 (EST)

Major/Minor destination

On closer examination of what you're doing, I'd like to ask you to please always include 2 destinations in each directions, if there are two. If both of them are actually major destinations, put the closer one in the minor slot and bold it. For guidelines or more info please review Wikitravel:Routebox navigation. Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work! Texugo 09:56, 1 March 2010 (EST)

IsPartOf changes

Hi, Eco84. Changes such as this one should be completely unnecessary; why did you make it? LtPowers 09:43, 17 November 2010 (EST)

No, IsPartOf was created explicitly so that we didn't need the underscores, which IsIn requires. =) To fix the breadcrumbs, you have to start higher up in the hierarchy and purge the cache, working your way back down. Like to fix the breadcrumbs on, say, Buffalo (New York), you'd have to start by purging Mid-Atlantic (or higher or lower in the hierarchy), then New York (state), then Niagara Frontier, and then Buffalo. LtPowers 20:54, 17 November 2010 (EST)


You didn't fill in any destinations for the 495 routebox. Do you happen to know what they are? Texugo 00:22, 21 December 2010 (EST)

Thanks! Texugo 01:07, 21 December 2010 (EST)

Houston Routebox Changes

Hello there. I just noticed around Dec. 7th you changed the routebox info for I-10 between Houston and Beaumont, Texas to include Baytown. I also noticed on I-45 (between Houston and Dallas) you changed Corsicana to Mustang. I was just wondering why? Army of me 21:10, 3 February 2011 (EST)

Actually maybe I figured it out; I'm guessing you added in the next closest city on those highways that had a Wikitravel article created. Am I right? Army of me 21:14, 3 February 2011 (EST)
