*'''Don't limit yourself to things you already know.''' You don't have to have firsthand knowledge of a destination or topic to contribute to the article!

*'''Make outlines.''' Don't be daunted by the task of writing all of the article about [[Russia]] -- just get it started with an [[Wikitravel:Outline articles|outline]]. People are much more likely to change or add to articles than to start them from scratch. We have a bunch of handy [[Wikitravel:Article templates | templates]] for destination guides, which you can use. If you only know a teensy bit about a subject, go ahead and add it in. We currently have a huge backlog of [[Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:Stub | stub articles]] that shouldn't really be there. It is easy to create an outline for most articles and move them to the next level. You can help there.
