Welcome to Wikitravel, and thanks for contributing. I assume you're the same person who's been creating and editing articles about Peru; logging in with your account will make it much easier to communicate. :) Please take a second to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit more 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.

One policy I want to point out is that we link only to official web sites for the hotels, restaurants, and other places we list. We don't links to blogs (like on Xanga) or other guides. That's because we want to have all the information a traveler needs here, in Wikitravel itself. See Wikitravel:External links for a more complete explanation. - Todd VerBeek 14:25, 16 July 2006 (EDT)

The format for external links does not include putting a "*" in front of the name. - Todd VerBeek 14:52, 16 July 2006 (EDT)

And would you at least acknowledge that you've seen this page, and that you understand what I'm saying? I'm begining to think you're deliberately ignoring my messages. - Todd VerBeek 20:32, 16 July 2006 (EDT)

Thanks Todd We only just saw the message.

Hello and Welcome TrujilloPeru! I just wanted to say nice start on adding information to Peru guides. Now that you have a user account, you may want to read-up on the policies and guidelines mentioned above and then consider becoming a Wikitravel:Docent for some of the destinations you may know well. I hope you don't mind if I go over some of your edits and bring things in line with our Manual of style. We like to keep things consistant to be useful to travellers. Let me know if you have any questions! Majnoona 21:11, 16 July 2006 (EDT)

Do we write at the top or bottom here? We are recommended in the best international guidebooks, have run several weblogs for several years & won a prize for ElBrujoPeru, which contains far more correct & current information (& less typos & grammatical errors) than sites like that of Inkanatura.

(At the bottom. That whole reply-at-the-top thing in e-mail drives me crazy.)
We're certainly glad to have you contributing your expertise to Wikitravel. Our policy against linking to blogs or other guides has nothing to do with the quality of the information on them, but a need to draw a line somewhere, to prevent Wikitravel articles from being filled with link after link to online guides, rather than being filled with actual information. (The Wikitravel:External links page explains it better than I can.) - Todd VerBeek 22:21, 16 July 2006 (EDT)
