Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. -- PierrB 06:10, 21 March 2013 (EDT)

Thank you for the contributions on the Lithuania page! --OVK 10:51, 21 March 2013 (EDT)
Yes, thank you! Great job! Please keep it up! IBAlex 15:40, 25 March 2013 (EDT)


Useful info that you are adding but please, if you have time, would you read some of our style tips: xl, sh, radix, units, phones?

This page will give you some tips on replying on this page: UUTP --118dot93dot73dot30 16:01, 26 March 2013 (EDT)

Thanks. This is not finished, i accept all remarks, simply those things related to formatting can do anybody, if the information itself is already added. I'm adding info first, then editing it. It's only matter of time. And, btw, would be nice if somebody could edit my language, i mean English. Without distortion of meaning. Would be great.--Local 16:15, 26 March 2013 (EDT)

I'll smooth out your English - but it's pretty boring doing all those formatting corrections, so it's better you learn them yourself since that does not need good English. (Indeed, I see you've already started formatting the phone numbers correctly in Intrnational format- thanks!) If you can't be bothered, I may (or may not) find the time to do it for you...
One other thing. Thanks for signing your comment here, but if you read UUTP you'll see that you should never sign articles - only discussion and talk pages --118dot93dot73dot30 17:36, 26 March 2013 (EDT)

Thanks. I've noticed about signing, just i saw that others have signed and nobody edited this, so was not sure about it. Format of phone numbers is clear now and i edited all of them (added by me), this should be ok since now on. And i edited "street" -> "St". Here is one thing which i'm not sure about (in any case i don't want to violate any rules of wikitravel) - standard abbreviation "st." in lithuanian means "stotis" which means "station". If it is included in the street address it means station. What if someone decide to use it as a street address, to send a letter, parcel and such? Also, I’ve read the rules, but still not sure: should I delete all zip-codes? Another thing – about “Pilgrimages” . Maybe some additional explanation is required, but Kaziukas fair is a craft fair and is celebrated according to pagan traditions and marks the beginning of spring . The month of March in lith is kovas, means rook, March 4 is called Rook Day, these 2 commemorations are merged (same like midsummer day or Xmas Eve). King Casimir was very religious in a positive sense, but this fair is not a pilgrimage in any way. For pilgrimage there may be added St. Casimir’s chapel in Vilnius cathedral (Casimir sarcophagus is there), this would be adequate. And why Song Festival is added there? It may be called even political, but not religious . “Pilgrimages” could be enriched by expanding Šiluva, for example, maybe some other things can be added (The way of the Cross in Vilnius Calvarias, Pivašiūnai, Krekenava, Trakai… it is 23 spots total), but I don’t care about it much as religious people know that better than any tourists, this info is not very essential until other sections are not expanded to adequate proportion --Local (talk) 03:54, 29 March 2013 (EDT)

We have a tight changeover at Changi tonight so some answers will have to wait. Thanks for the great work with phone numbers. Street names are not anglicised - they should be listed the way they will be seen on local street signs. --118dot93dot73dot30 02:54, 15:00 29 March 2013 (UTC)

So the question why Kaziukas and Song festival should be in Pilgrimage section is still relevant, maybe my understanding of concept is wrong. Also, could anybody describe this spruce with 18 trunks, i'd want to add it to "Nature objects", but we have 1 word to describe such kind of trees, i have no clue how it is called in EN. The tree is spruce, it's called "Raganų eglė" - literally translates as "Spruce of Witches" (usually literal translation is not smooth), any minor lesson of EN would be great, or just add a proper description into "Nature objects". --Local (talk) 04:17, 31 March 2013 (EDT)

Since my flight schedules are so demanding for the next few weeks, I would suggest that you discuss these type of topics at Talk:Lithuania --118dot93dot73dot30 02:54, 7 April 2013 (EDT)
