Latest revision as of 16:16, 23 May 2018

Welcome to the Project Home page! This is the central place for information about Wikitravel. We’ve curated helpful links for new and experienced Wikitravelers alike. Newcomers can learn the basics of the wiki, find out how the project works, and learn helpful tips on editing the guide. Experienced members can find out or update the community on tasks that need to be done and share news about recent events or current activities. Feel free to visit the Travellers' Pub to see the latest on community discussions. You can also use the Pub to ask any questions that you may have! If you haven't already, don't forget to create an account!




Contents:


Welcome!

Newcomers:

Welcome to Wikitravel, we're happy you're here! We hope that you enjoy what you see and that you join us in making a free, up-to-date, complete and reliable world-wide travel guide.

Wikipedians:

This article is specifically for people familiar with Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Wikitravel's format was inspired by Wikipedia, and we also use the MediaWiki software to run our site. If you're used to Wikipedia, you should feel right at home—although you should still probably check out the Welcome, newcomers page.

Business owners:

The owners (and loyal employees) of hotels, restaurants, bars, attractions, and other businesses catering to travellers can share information that helps others in their travels. Everyone is invited to participate in this guide's development and decision-making as long as his contributions are constructive and benefit the traveller. Everyone is also invited to share the information in Wikitravel with whomever they want.

Tourism professionals:

To help further the goals laid out in the Tourist Bureau Expedition this page will help direct tourism professionals to related Wikitravel policies and explain any questions.

Plunge forward!:

As soon as you're ready, plunge forward! Feel free to start authoring, editing, and illustrating articles on Wikitravel. You can edit any article on Wikitravel (even this one!), and we hope that you do. We need your knowledge, your experience, your talent, and your attention.

Helpful Resources

Help:

We have information about understanding what Wikitravel is, how to use Wikitravel to find travel information, contributing to Wikitravel, and how to reuse the guides.If you have questions that aren't answered here, try checking the FAQ, or ask a question in the travellers' pub.

FAQ:

Here are some Fearfully Anticipated Questions that Wikitravellers have heard, or think they may hear, or wonder about themselves. If you don't see your question answered here, ask it at the travellers' pub.

Search help:

The Mediawiki software we use for making Wikitravel provides a nice full-text search engine system. To search for any name or term used in articles on Wikitravel, type the word or words into the Find box on any Wikitravel page and hit the OK button.

User accounts:

You may want to create a user account to give yourself an identity on Wikitravel. Wikitravellers with user accounts get a User page, and their user name is used for page histories. They also have the ability to mark their changes as minor, can add pages to a watchlist, and have the ability to turn off advertising. They can also communicate with other Wikitravellers through their personal talk page.

Graffiti wall

The Graffiti wall is a place for newcomers to practice How to edit a page. Please try to keep your edits below the following line, but otherwise plunge forward!

Travellers' pub:

The Travellers' pub is the place to ask questions when you're confused, lost, afraid, tired, annoyed, thoughtful, or helpful. Please check the FAQ and Help page before asking a question, though, since that may save your time and others'.

Jargon:

Wikitravellers sometimes use their own brand of jargon which can be confusing for new users. This glossary attempts to explain some of the words and phrases used in discussions, edit summaries, or on IRC.

Docents:

Wikitravellers have knowledge about our destinations that sometimes goes beyond what can be included in a guide. Often, visitors to Wikitravel have a very specific question that is not answered by our usual guide format. To connect these folks, it would be great to make an explicit connection between some articles and contributors.

more...:

This page intends to act as an index to meta pages in Wikitravel. The Wikitravel: namespace contains mostly meta pages, while the main namespace contain mostly non-meta travel guide pages.


About Wikitravel

About:

Wikitravel is a project to create a free, complete, up-to-date and reliable world-wide travel guide. It is built in collaboration by Wikitravellers from around the globe.

Goals and non-goals:

The mission of Wikitravel is this:
Wikitravel is a project to create a free, complete, up-to-date and reliable world-wide travel guide.

Community policies:

These are some agreed-upon policies that we use for developing Wikitravel. If you have a question about the specifics of these policies, or want to see them changed/amended/clarified, use the discussion page of the particular policy or the Travellers' Pub. A list of issues currently being discussed can be found here.

Be fair:

Wikitravel makes every attempt to be fair in articles. Being "fair" does not necessarily mean being "nice". We have a mission to make (among other things) a reliable and complete travel guide, and a travel guide that doesn't give qualitative information about the things it describes isn't reliable or complete.

Wikitravellers:

Wikitravellers are members of a world-wide community of contributors to Wikitravel. Wikitravel hasn't been around long enough to get any distinct idea for what kind of people Wikitravellers are, but it's probably safe to say that people who are involved with Wikitravel care about travel in general, and about sharing knowledge with others in particular.

Admins:

Administrators are Wikitravellers who are nominated by the Wikitravel community and have been granted some additional privileges over and above normal. Administrators have shown a good appreciation of the Wikitravel policies and guidelines and made significant contributions on Wikitravel articles.

Bureaucrats:

A bureaucrat has, just like an administrator, no formal power or leading status, but has been trusted with tools which could be dangerous in the wrong hands. The number of bureaucrats shall be kept to an absolute minimum and new bureaucrats should only be appointed if the current bureaucrats do not have time to perform their tasks or have asked to have their bureaucrat rights revoked.


Tools

Index:

This page intends to act as an index to meta pages in Wikitravel. The Wikitravel: namespace contains mostly meta pages, while the main namespace contain mostly non-meta travel guide pages.

Manual of style:

Our Manual of Style is a collection of rules-of-thumb and guidelines for giving Wikitravel a consistent look and feel. Many of these rules have exceptions, but to put together a good reference work collaboratively, it's best to follow the rules unless they're quite inappropriate for a particular situation.

Geographical hierarchy:

Geography is one way of looking at travel. (see other ways of seeing travel for some other ways). The geographical hierarchy is the way we arrange wikitravel articles according to their geography - what areas they contain, and what area they are contained within. Each level of the geographical hierarchy has an article of its own.

What is an article?:

In order to keep Wikitravel organized and consistent there are guidelines about when a subject gets its own article. In this area there are two competing principles:

Where you can stick it:

If you know some information, it can be hard to find exactly where that information is supposed to go. This page is here to provide a kind of reverse directory for showing the best place to put the info you know.

Naming conventions:

There are lots of places in the world, with lots of names in lots of languages. The following conventions are intended to make it easier to decide how to write place names, and how to read and find things in Wikitravel. Most of the following apply to destinations as well as other kinds of articles.

Article templates:

To provide for a more consistent layout for readers of Wikitravel, we use article templates for most destination-style articles. You can use the following templates either to start a new article, or as guidelines for reformatting or adding to existing articles.

Article status:

Wikitravel articles evolve and mature, as they are edited by various contributors, over time. When assessing an article's status, many factors must be taken into account. The following subjective guidelines are to assist editors in making this assessment, considering the amount of information in an article, and its quality and usefulness. The article's compliance with Wikitravel's goals and Manual of Style should also be considered.


Expeditions

Expeditions:

A Wikitravel Expedition is a special sub-project for Wikitravel articles or images. (Sure, we could just call it a "project", but what fun is that?) Expeditions help Wikitravellers collaborate and organize around certain subjects, be they based on shared interests, geography, or shared skills.

Language Expeditions:

A Wikitravel Expedition is a special sub-project for Wikitravel articles or images. (Sure, we could just call it a "project", but what fun is that?) Expeditions help Wikitravellers collaborate and organize around certain subjects, be they based on shared interests, geography, or shared skills.

Phrasebooks,:

The Phrasebook Expedition is a Wikitravel Expedition to work out travel-related language guides for Wikitravel (see the list of phrasebooks for what we've got so far).

Mapmaking:

The Mapmaking Expedition is a Wikitravel Expedition to organize and standardize the maps used in Wikitravel.

Offline Readers:

The Offline Reader Expedition is a Wikitravel Expedition to make it possible to download and use Wikitravel articles off-line (while not connected to the Internet.)

Fellow Travellers

The Fellow Traveller Expedition is a Wikitravel Expedition to explore how Wikitravel can cooperate with other relevant, open-content, user-generated projects to which we have some relation.
