Why is this special talk page message needed? Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:14, 11 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am testing if the attribution at the bottom makes a difference. The two previous pages I tested had names that were too long to give pagerank. Travel Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 08:15, 11 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikimedia site blatantly violating Wikitravel contributors' copyright?[edit]

Pardon me, but I could not help notice this article bears a striking resemblance to one I edited at Wikitravel in 2009 and 2010 when I resided in this area. But I can find no attribution on it to show my work. Can you explain this? If not, you are in violation of whatever sharing license Wikitravel uses and this article must be removed. Presuming this is not the only place you've done this, much of your content must be in violation of copyright. —The preceding comment was added by HK britt (talkcontribs)

Hi, and welcome to Wikivoyage. First of all, you may want to read up on copyleft. Secondly, in case you don't know anything about the migration from Wikitravel to Wikivoyage, have a look here and check out some of the linked articles in the "Can I read more?" section. Thirdly, the article history credits your contributions in this article just as it did in Wikitravel. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:57, 20 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ikan, it certainly does not credit me. It credits only 2 users, neither of whom contributed to the original article. Thus the exact reason for my post. What kind of content piracy website are you all running here?
The article history clearly states that the credits are at the history page for Longsheng, China (now a redirect page), where there is a long list of edits going all the way back to the article's creation in March 2007. If you contributed to the article, you did so under a different user name or IP address, and have been credited as such. I'm guessing maybe you were IP address, which seems to be a China address that edited during the time period you specified. Texugo (talk) 21:55, 20 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
HK britt, for your convenience, here's the link to the complete history of Longsheng, China. Have a look. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:04, 20 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Are you all thick? I see what the blasted history STATES and it isn't there! The link texugo just posted above does indeed lead to the actual history. But the history link on the article leads to only 4 recent edits. You seem to be playing games with attributing my work. Put a link to the Wikitravel article at the footer & be done with it, the way it's always been done at WP and elsewhere, or you shall be certain the foundation authorities will hear of it. I can't think they take lightly the idea that a few dolts on a third-rate wiki are compromising their license agreement for Wikipedia. I'm not asking for my bloody CONvENIENCE. I'm stating what the licensing requires you to do, and what it takes for someone visiting the dad-blasted page to see what I've written! People's livelihoods and reputations are at stake, you boobs!
Your rude personal attacks are unwelcome and must not continue. As stated, the history page clearly tells where the attribution can be found, and it is there. The license does not require any mention of credit at the bottom of the article, nor does it confine the credit to a specific history page, so I believe the license agreement is taken care of.

Do us a favor, children. Navigate to the Longsheng page from anywhere. Click the HISTORY tab. See? Now click the half-arsed link that Jmh649 tried to use as "attribution." See? Same 4 bloody edits. THIS IS NOT SUFFICIENT.

And it tells you at the top of that page that you've been redirected. If you click back to the page that actually has the title Jmh649 gave, you will see the full history. The history note here also tells you how to find the original history page at Wikitravel. Texugo (talk) 22:52, 20 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. You do NOT get to play games with the contributions of millions of editors just because a handful of inept admins are keen to score a few google points for their copy-catted website. FIX IT OR REMOVE MY CONTENT FROM YOUR SITE.

Nobody is playing games. I merged the history here just so you'll stop complaining, not because I think it was necessary. Texugo (talk) 23:08, 20 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No country code[edit]

Close to no phone number mentioned in the listings includes a country code. I would fix it, but I don't know the country code for China. Hobbitschuster (talk) 18:23, 17 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
