Hello Jonboy!

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 Silver Spring, Istanbul, San Diego, a project page and generally keeping the wiki tidy. --Huttite 19:23, 30 Dec 2005 (EST)

And a hearty welcome from me too — housekeeping after silly vandals is a chore and I for one very much appreciate you chipping in. Jpatokal 12:34, 15 Feb 2006 (EST)

Thanks for telling me about WikiTravel, I've already added an item to Maui. --Wwc 13:11, 8 March 2006 (EST)

External Links

I was told by other WikIpedia editors that the proper place to post Travel Guide links was the external Links section of WikiTRAVEL.

Hello anonymous user. Could you cite these discussions? According to Wikitravel:External_links, "In particular, avoid links to other travel guides." By the way, I encourage you to create an account; it makes it easier to communicate and to contribute in general. 12:03, 14 Feb 2006 (EST) (Really Jonboy...why do I always get logged out without being notified? sigh.)

Way to go

Man, you're doing a lot of work! Thanks a lot for your effort. --Evan 17:16, 15 Feb 2006 (EST)

Math is hard

Actually, that's 7000 articles larger than a certain size. I'm not sure how to tell how many too-small pages exist.

Keep up the great work! -- Colin 02:31, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)

Math is easy; reading is hard. Had not read the description of how the stats were calculated. It was a secondary point to my battle against External Links sections, so has been removed. Thanks for pointing it out! Jonboy 12:31, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)
"Math is hard, let's go shopping" -- Colin 18:44, 22 Feb 2006 (EST)
I'm familiar, but as a mathematician, I have to disagree.  :-) -- Jonboy 20:04, 22 Feb 2006 (EST)

Nice work

Keep up the super-great work! And I appreciate that you keep your eye out for the "tourist != traveller" -- I think that's an important aspect of what makes Wikitravel different from other guides. There's room for everywhere here! Majnoona 10:35, 20 Feb 2006 (EST)

Thanks! I end up plenty of places visiting family or on business that I wouldn't consider dream vacation spots, but I appreciate any travel info there. Jonboy 10:38, 20 Feb 2006 (EST)
Same here... And thanks for doing some welcomes too! It's always nice to get those up quick... Majnoona 13:05, 21 Feb 2006 (EST)
Tip o' the day: check out Wikitravel:Using_Mediawiki_templates#Available_Templates for a quick way to add outlines... Majnoona 16:21, 21 Feb 2006 (EST)
Thanks; I used it in Cairo/Heliopolis! Jonboy 17:51, 21 Feb 2006 (EST)

External links Alkmaar

Please don't delete this collection of links, which is not spam, but relevant background information. If you want the external link section out, then move the links into appropriate sections of the article, instead of just deleting them. Wesopa 06:09, 26 February 2006 (EST)

I moved them all myself, but the above request stands, for other articles. Wesopa 07:21, 26 February 2006 (EST)

Please take a look at What not to link to. In particular, the sentence "We should have travel information in Wikitravel, not linked to from Wikitravel." While I recognize in some cases I have been overly zealous in getting rid of external links, in 90% of the cases these links fall into the category of linked-to information. In about 10% of the cases, they belong somewhere else in the article (eg attraction listing). In those cases, i) I will try to move things within the article instead of deleting them but ii) feel free to put them back. Jonboy 09:26, 26 February 2006 (EST)

Ischia in Main Page

I have check and I think that Ischia page is a good article for stay in main page, ther is info about all.


Check out Wikitravel:Administrator nominations -- Tom Holland (xltel) 15:04, 9 March 2006 (EST)

Thanks for the welcome

Thanks for welcoming me! I've already taken care of the reading so I know how things work around here. And by the way, congrats on being nominated for adminship! Jeff02 00:06, 14 March 2006 (EST)
