Our continent articles are major gateways to the rest of our content, but they are often ill-formatted and have glaringly blank sections. We need to fill out these articles with the basic content they need, and then make sure they sparkle. Writing a "see section" or "do section" for a continent is actually pretty easy, especially if we get a team of people together playing to their own strengths. Tasks:
Empty sections — fill 'em in! C'mon, everyone has some idea of what to put in a Europe "eat" section!
Bullet points to prose — for basic main headers like see, do, eat, buy, etc., information should be in overview prose form, not random cherry picked bullets.
Rationalize — sometimes weird suggestions crop up in the various sections. Stuff mentioned at the continental region should be mentioned for a reason. Imagine some wealthy, shallow (but probably interesting-to-talk-to and rather active) person who wants to "go see South America," and assess whether the items discussed are noteworthy enough to plausibly fit in such an itinerary.
Prioritize — see & do first, then get in, get around, and stay safe.
This guide provides suggestions for making your first contribution to this wiki. In general it is best to start out by contributing a listing for your favorite attraction, restaurant, or bar rather than trying to create a new article or make formatting changes to an existing article.
In this age of satellites and GPS, you no longer need to be a professional cartographer to draw an accurate map. This tutorial gives instructions for creating standard Wikivoyage maps using Inkscape. Complete amateurs have created some of our best maps following this guide.
