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. --Majnoona 00:58, 18 May 2004 (EDT)

Hey; thanks for the welcome. I've been dabbling with a few Wikis over the years, so I'm familiar with the `Wiki Philosophy', and have a halting acquainted with the rudiments of how a Wiki operates. That being said, though, this will be my first real attempt to make a meaningful contribution to a vibrant and engaging Wiki community, so please forgive my initial gracelessness. =)

IIRC, I stumbled across Wikitravel while doing some research on whether or not we had use for a Wiki-based collab tool at work. I got here from following one of Evan's links on some other Wiki. ("Evan Prodromou is the founder of Wikitravel." ...hey, that sounds interesting, and that name sure sounds familiar...) It's too bad I didn't find it sooner. One of my biggest peeves with conventional travel guides is how little coverage they have of some of the smaller places I've lived (FSVO `small'). Typically, you get a bit of copy lifted directly from the brochures of the major commercial tourist attractions, combined with a halfhearted mention of the places where the reviewer ate and slept while passing through town, clearly on the way to somewhere they considered to be more important. But now, with the help of Wikitravel and fellow Wikitravellers, I can try and change all that =) Cheers, RickScott 00:14, May 21, 2004 (EDT)
