Hello Travelgeek! Welcome to Wikitravel. Unfortunatelly I had to delete the Oz page you created. We appreciate the article but it is better to wait until 4/1/2013 to create it. Please feel free to propose an article on discussion page for jokes article beforehand. Since no joke article was created past year, we are sure that there will be a lot of support to do so this year but first the consensus must be reached within the community. 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. -- IBAlex 14:56, 21 November 2012 (EST)

Hi Travelgeek! Thank you for all your contributions to WT, highly appreciated! Great job on Eurasia By Train page! Keep it up! Warm regards, IBAlex 20:49, 10 January 2013 (EST)

The Best Of Europe

Hi! I saw that you created this interesting page. Are you planning on working on it further? Maybe adding some pictures? I know that you tried to include all the most known cities but there are still many many more places worth visiting in Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Eastern Europe, Balkans, ... Warm regards, IBAlex 18:20, 22 January 2013 (EST)



This barnstar is to show you appreciation for your great work on Wikitravel! Outstanding job with pages like Eurasia By Train, Alexandria to Cape Town by train and bus, The Mediterranean By Ferry. Great pictures and valuable information. I am truly looking forward to seeing more contributions from you! Thank you --IBAlex 18:10, 6 February 2013 (EST)

Thank you. I appreciate the barnstar.

Okay,, whoever you are, I need to talk to you. I am truly, honestly sorry if I offended you by only putting visa information for US citizens on my "Alexandria to Cape Town by train and bus" itinerary. I am not defending why I didn't include it, but I do want to explain why.

  • 1. It would take a long time for me to research and type out visa information for citizens of every country. If it really bothers you, you are perfectly welcome to go and add it under "Prepare".
  • 2. I don't think that anyone wants to scroll through visa info for 190+ countries. Do you?
  • 3. Itineraries are not meant to solely provide visa conditions. You may, however, create a "Visa Information" page under "Travel topics". In fact, I think that this would be a great addition to Wikitravel!

Again, I am very sorry for offending you. I hope that we can put all of this behind us. Thank you. —The preceding comment was added by Travelgeek (talkcontribs) 21:10, 23 March 2013 UTC

That ip address has been blocked for 3 months, and I doubt they'er watching your talk page, so you might like to copy your very conciliatory message here: User_talk: ? --118dot93dot73dot30 22:41, 23 March 2013 (EDT)

Hi Travelgeek, your harmed page should be restored by now. ~Should you need anything else, please let us know PierrB (talk) 13:45, 7 April 2013 (EDT) thank you!!! Travelgeek (talk) 15:45, 9 April 2013 (EDT)

I couldn't possibly care less about what you think would be "useful" to wikitravel.
