Just a reply to the stuff on my talk page:

1. Fine I relent on the airports but I condensed the information. No need to describe the airports in detail in the country article. Do that in the city articles.
2. Your map uses the old romanisations. Pls stick to the revised romanisations when dealing with South Korea. The old ones should be used when dealing with North Korea. In addition, there might be some copyright issues as it appears to be scanned from a book so some moderator will eventually remove it anyway.

I hope this cleared the air a little and I certainly do not wish to have any animosity with you. Cheers. Superdog 02:34, 28 May 2008 (EDT)

Welcome, external links

Hello Paula! 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.

Thanks for your work on South Korea, but please don't make deep links to (or any other site, for that matter). Eg. Insadong is supposed to be covered in our very own Seoul article, not other travel guides. Jpatokal 01:38, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

In general, you should not make any links to any third-party travel guides, see Wikitravel:External links for the full scoop. Basically, we want the information to be right here on this site, not somewhere else; this is particularly important for offline use of Wikitravel, such as the printed guidebooks of Wikitravel Press.

Yes, you can and should link to the official tourism site of any country or destination once in the very first sentence of the article, but other links are generally inappropriate. Jpatokal 03:38, 9 June 2008 (EDT)
Any important information should be right here in Wikitravel, not behind an external link that may break tomorrow and is not accessible offline. So the correct answer is neither to link to the external travel guide nor to simply omit the link, it's to add that information into the correct place in Wikitravel.
The "no English content" rule has been a bit of a dead letter for a while now, and it's now removed from the official policy. So yes, hotel websites etc in Korean only are fine.
I didn't quite understand what you meant by "the history is not visible"...?
