Pour assurer une bonne cohérence entre les différents articles, nous employons plusieurs modèles. Vous pouvez utiliser les modèles suivants pour créer un nouvel article, ou comme guide pour reformatter ou compléter un article existant.

Comment utiliser ces modèles

Il y a principalement deux façons de les utiliser.

  • Pour créer de nouveaux articles. Quand vous créez un nouvel article, cherchez le modèle qui correspond le mieux au sujet de votre article. Par exemple, si vous faites un nouvel article à propos d'une région, faites un copier-coller du modèle pour les articles sur les régions, puis compléter l'article avec les informations que vous connaissez. Prenez soin d'enlever les instructions en italique ; sinon ce sera une source de confusion pour le prochain contributeur.
  • Pour modifier des articles existants. Si vous souhaitez ajouter un nouveau restaurant à Paris, vous pouvez vous référez au modèle pour les mégapoles pour voir comment cela est fait. De la même façon, si quelqu'un d'autre a ajouté des informations dans un article et que vous souhaitez le réorganiser, vous pouvez vous référer au modèle correspondant pour voir comment nous souhaitons que les articles soient présentés.


Voic les rpéponses aux questions les plus courantes concernant ces modèles.

Why does every city article have to look (about) the same? 
We think it's great to have simple, logical sections to each destination guide on Wikitravel. This makes it easier for readers to find the info they need on any particular destination. Sure, it cuts down somewhat on contributors' creative license, but the traveller comes first around here. We want travelers to get the info they need as easily as possible.
There's really no hotels or campgrounds in name of small city. Do I still have to have a "Sleep" section? 
No. If there are sections of the template that don't really fit your destination, well, just leave them out. The sections aren't mandatory. If you're going to have restaurant listings, we'd prefer if you made them in the format of the "Eat" section, but if not, then don't bother with "Eat".
Why do all the sections have such weird names? What about "Lodging" and "Restaurants" instead? 
The main reason we do this is because we don't want Wikitravel guides to look just like any existing commercial guides. Why not? Well, first, so Wikitravel stuff looks distinctive. People should see a guide and say, "Hey! See, Do, Eat -- this came from Wikitravel! Those guys rock!" The other is to discourage wholesale copyright violation by well-meaning but ill-informed contributors. We don't want folks copying stuff in directly from their tattered 1974 Europe on a Shoestring guidebook. We figured that if the formatting and stuff was different enough, that would be too much of a hassle to deal with.
I have a section I want to add, but it's not about Eat, Do, See, Sleep, Get In, or any of those. What do I do? 
First, make sure it really doesn't fit in with the templates. Usually you can fit it in as a sub-section of one of the main sections -- such as "Understand". If your information really doesn't fit anywhere, sure, go ahead and add the section. If you think it's something that is really general, that we'll need for all countries/regions/cities/whatevers, then add it to the template, too. Give an explanation of why it's needed, and how to use it.
I have an article I want to add, but it's not a city, region, country, or anything else with a template. What do I do? 
First of all, make sure that your contribution is really something we want to have on Wikitravel. Check our goals and non-goals as well as What is an article?. But if you're really superabsolutelypositively sure, just start the article without a template.
What's the difference between a small, medium, and large city? 
Well, it's more a matter of the size of the article than the size of the city. But you could break it down like this: small cities are cities that aren't going to have a ton of information on them. We just take some of the most important sections about a city -- where to eat, where to sleep, what to see -- and put them in the small city's article. Big cities are cities big enough that we need all the sections about a city in there. A huge city is a city that's so big that we can't fit all the information into one page. So we just get some overarching information and highlights about the city onto the main city page, and then put other info into the pages for the districts in the city. So, there's nothing really rigid about the differences -- just different ways of writing about the cities.
