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.
I don't think we have communicated before, so this may come as a bit of a surprise. I am writing to you to make sure that you are aware of the planned mass migration by most, if not all, of the Wikitravel Admins and many of the users to a proposed new site hosted by Wikimedia. A description of the developments can be seen at http://wikivoyage.org/general/Migration_FAQ Feel free to contact me for more information, either by e-mail through Wikitravel, or on my talk page. If you are interested it might be worth looking at the options soon, as Internet Brands is apparently blocking the site to external backups, and it may be that any work you do will not be available for transfer.
