I left a message on your en:user page.編集
Hello IBAlex! Thank you for your message. Some mouths ago, there were terribly many spams. But nowadays filters shut them out strongly. They still seem to creat a new account but cannot make a page. It's quite comfortable. Thank you for your help. About the update, since now I have not noticed any trouble. If I got any information, I'll tell you. Best regards, ResTpeRoc（トーク） 2013年10月31日 (木) 18:57 (JST)
- ResTpeRoc, thank you for your response!I'm happy to hear that there is less spam now and that the spammers are not creating spammy pages anymore. We still did not upgrade the site, we will do it in the next week or so. Now we are testing the upgrade to make sure there will be no problems after we roll it out. I will let you know when exactly we will do the upgrade. Yes, I'm here to help so if there is any problem, just write on my talk page and I will do my best to solve it. Warm regards, IBAlex（トーク） 2013年11月1日 (金) 09:23 (JST)
Hi, Alex. Thank you for your warm and kind message, and I apologize for not to respond you quickly. For me English is one of the foreign languages after all, and it takes much effort to think and make some messages in English, compare to Japanese.
- Hi Shoestring! Thank you for your message! I understand that you want to protect your privacy, I just still wanted to ask to be sure about it. Please know that we are very thankful for your work on Wikitravel! You are a great administrator! Also, your English is very good! All the best to you! IBAlex（トーク） 2013年12月17日 (火) 03:53 (JST)
huge number of articles imported to other wiki travel guide website編集
Hello Alex, thank you for your support to Japanese edition.
Yesterday I noticed there are many copied articles of Japanese WT on the other wiki travel-gude website. (I cannot write the name and URL of that website because WT system rejects the uploading, but you may understand which website is this.)
Someone has imported more than 6000 articles to that website during only 8 days (from Jan 1st to 8th). This user's name is "Tmwets", and another user ("dcljr") has already adviced them not to do such importing from Japanese WT.
I'm worried this is serious infringement of copyright, and I deplore such imitation articles existing still now. （トーク） 2015年1月13日 (火) 11:11 (JST)
