Hello! Welcome to Wikitravel. If you want to specialize your experience you may want to consider editing your preferences. Please take a second 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're new to the whole wiki community look at the Wiki markup to get an idea of how to use the wiki markup. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.--Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 22:35, 26 July 2006 (EDT)
I just wanted to point out our image policy to you and I'd really appreciate it if you would upload your images to Wikitravel Shared so that your images can be used by all language versions of Wikitravel. Please keep in mind that you must provide information about the license of the image you are uploading and that you must be the owner and author of the image. Here is a copy of the default license.

Brazil - Thanks
Thank you for your contributions to Brazilian destinations! Ricardo (Rmx) 22:17, 8 August 2006 (EDT)
Do you know Nicole and Andrea too? -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:08, 17 August 2006 (EDT)
The isin for the Romanian version is ready to go, but is there a localized name for IsIn in Romanian too? -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:25, 31 August 2006 (EDT)
Des Moines (I assume)
Did you erase listings for the High Life Lounge and El Bait Shop? If so, why?
Why no italics for a newspaper? Also, any tips (aka instructions) for getting photos from Websites for the site? Unizeppelin 00:10, 4 September 2006 (EDT)
I don't want to see a Yellow Book listings either but I think anyone who's visiting Iowa from another country would enjoy seeing an ethnic storie available to them if they want to do some cooking. I live overseas and would love it if I saw a listing where I could pick up some American-style groceries. Also, why did you delete Dahls, Hy-Vee, Fareway, Wal-Mart and Target? Two of them (Dahls and Fareway) are unique to Iowa (one in fact just to Des Moines). These are where even most of the locals shop...these places also offer a variety of services (eg, film processing, Ticketmaster) that would be great for an out-of-towner to know about. I would seriously think about re-inserting these places...after all, all I pretty much did was list how many locations were in the area and the Website...Unizeppelin 01:46, 12 September 2006 (EDT)
Greetings from USA/Italy
Welcome and WOW !! Can see you are a real master of languages. I am an Italian-American citizen and have been working with a kind gentleman, Lucio DeMarcellis, to familiarize people with our hometown of Teramo in the Abruzzo Region. We could use some assistance translating our pages from English or Italian into Japanese and Portuguese. Any assistance you could provide would be most helpful. You might even win a private guided tour of our beautiful (but relatively unknown) city! Ulissi
Thanks for your help there -- I wasn't quite keeping up alone. And my DSL keeps dying. Thanks! -- Colin 00:48, 11 September 2006 (EDT)
I went ahead and beat Evan to the punch by nominating you for admin status on ES. The email I sent you a couple days ago was about that. I hadn't realized you already became an admin on PT. By the way, the email I sent to you was the email address noted on your blog. -- Sapphire 00:19, 21 September 2006 (EDT)
You completely reverted the experience I had in this Nara restaurant, just based on an "assumption" that this is not possible, although I explicitly state that this is my experience. I do not know about Hamamatsu, but here in Tokyo love restaurants are a new gadget for couples who seek the thrill of having "sanctioned" sex in public. It is this kind of unreflected editing that made me drop out of Wikipedia long ago.
Admin nomination Part II
I've nominated you to become an admin on en:. Would you stop by Wikitravel:Administrator nominations and tell us if you're willing to accept the mission? Thanks. -- Sapphire • (Talk) • 11:29, 12 June 2007 (EDT)
New search engine
When you get a chance, could you check out the new search engine on review (http://wikitravel.org/review/Special:Search) and give your feedback on shared:Tech:Lucene search? It's the search tool that Wikipedia uses, and I think it's going to be a good upgrade for us. I'd especially like to make sure that it will support our other language versions well. --Evan 12:37, 12 June 2007 (EDT)

Are you knowledgeable enough to reduce that list of cities down to 9 or so? Texugo 04:22, 18 June 2007 (EDT)
Autor: setenil (Juan Gutierrez) Mensaje para Texugo.
Hola Texugo, soy juan Gutiérrez (setenil), yo fui quién añadió el texto y las fotos para Setenil de las Bodegas que borraste porque dices que los copié de revistaibérica, de opcionrural creo y de setenil.com. Decirte que si puse esos textos es porque son mios. En primer lugar yo soy el propietario de Turismo de Setenil, empresa que gestiona la Oficina de Turismo de Setenil y también soy webmaster de setenil.com. Si aparecen en las otras webs es porque yo colaboré con ellos. Esto lo puedes corroborar contactando con ellos si quieres. Las fotos también se las envié yo. Tengo los originales de todo. Te garantizo que son mias hechas con una cybershot. Estuve un buen rato editando todo para ponerlo en esta web para que la gente conozca este encantador pueblo, al menos me podrías haber preguntado antes de borrarlo todo, despreciando mi trabajo, para que te hubiera dado las explicaciones oportunas. De todas formas gracias
Hamamatsu airport bus
...is still there, and precisely in the place it should be: "By plane", not in its own bizarro section. Jpatokal 04:45, 27 June 2007 (EDT)
MANY THANKS TEXUGO!
Many thanks for editing my new input about Pinswang, Austria. It is my first contribution to Wikitravel and I very much appreciate your making it very attractive for our readers. Best regards and thankyou for this great service! - Naz Ausgraben
I've restored the content on the infamous San Francisco parking meter article for now - the page is up for VFD, and in the past people have asked that VFD content not be removed so that it's clear what is being nominated for deletion. As always, discussion on Wikitravel talk:Votes for deletion is welcome if you feel strongly that the page should be blanked, although hopefully we can allow this famous meter to live out its final days without too much controversy :) -- Ryan • (talk) • 00:17, 11 September 2007 (EDT)
Thanks you for the welcome message. Best regards. Oda Mari 01:49, 19 October 2007 (EDT)
Ton of HTML
Hello. What were your issues with the official city and prefectural links you deleted? I thought official links were OK.
I am curious why you marked cedar point for VFD. It was up for VFD before and voted to keep. I saw no mention on the VFD page, so I removed tag. Please comment. 2old 09:00, 29 November 2007 (EST)
I'm new and tried to contribute - the additions were deleted very quickly. Please let me know why
Hi Texugo I'm new and I believe that I did something wrong with my additions. It said something about copy violation... not 100% sure. Whatever I posted wouldn't violate any copyrights. Is there a reason why my honest posts got deleted and if so where can I find the reason why. I don't want to make the same mistake twice. Thanks. leomax
removal of Cafes from Barcelona
Apologies & thanks
your edits in Alquezar
I was looking at my change and I wonder why you removed the reference on page http://wikitravel.org/en/Tijuana?
Texugo, could you help me to find a simplest possible wording for the last piece in this discussion ("You'll either love the pork and bean soup or you'll hate it.")? Thanks. --DenisYurkin 16:14, 24 January 2008 (EST)
You removed a section from the Bosnia page on "Eat" - saying it was copied from another page. This is incorrect. I was the author of the majority of the Eat section on that page and the forum you pointed out - http://www.alloexpat.com/bosnia_herzegovina_expat_forum/rss.php?f=8 - copied that section from WikiTravel, not the other way around. If you review history, you will see I made the first significant addition to the Eat section on May 12, 2005. The Forum page you provide the link for was created May 14, 2007. It appears to me that you frequently remove things from other pages, judging by the comments other users have left you. The point of Wiki is to CONTRIBUTE and GROW, not to unnecessarily remove! If you have nothing to add, then don't go around cutting pages. Thanks.
Excuse me mr. Texugo
I just have been welcome to wikitravel by Jpatokal seems like a nice gentleman and i would also like to give a warm hello and ask you if you can recomend any web links with free information for sleeping locations eat buy etc? Thank you and hello Texugo. --Thehighlands 00:36, 12 February 2008 (EST)

Thank you for correcting my stupid Engish.(T_T)--18.104.22.168 18:58, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Alas, I spent much time being sure that all cities and towns were included in regions for Massachusetts at the behest of Evan (remember him?) :) I understand why you are trimming, but maybe we could leave them under "other towns" or something? -OldPine 22:42, 24 February 2008 (EST)
Dear Internet Brands...
See Wikitravel_talk:Internet_Brands#Dear_Internet_Brands... -- Colin 18:40, 25 February 2008 (EST)
Yeah, these look really good to me—although I only visited the High Plains, so I'm no expert. Using counties wouldn't have made any sense, and your boundary descriptions look nice and precise. On a different note, I just checked out some internet photos of Caprock Canyons, and that looks like a really cool park I overlooked. A good reason to return! --Peter Talk 02:17, 6 March 2008 (EST)
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania
Just curious why all the edits on my Montgomery County PA entry .. . you shortened it a lot!
What are your thoughts onPomeranian Voivodship and Pomorskie Voivodship? They're the same. There's not an exact science to naming the voivodships, because it's easy to confuse the English translation of voivodships, so I, use a mixture of the Polish and English names when talking with friends in Warsaw. Thus, I'm not sure which name to use and which one to redirect. -- Sapphire • (Talk) • 11:12, 12 March 2008 (EDT)
This isn't wikipedia, so I don't want to vandalise. Unlike wikipedia, this could actually help someone or mean something. Therefore, I really want to hear by what reasoning Mongolia could be considered part of East Asia, and why we shouldn't just set about fixing the references. Shit, I'll do it, I have a cold. What else do I have to do?
Hey mate, seriously, can you name one similarity between Mongolia and East Asia? dsmccohen
