The Wikivoyage edit-a-thon 2018 was an online edit-a-thon that took place from February 1 until February 28, in 2018, to coincide with the 5th anniversary of the launch of Wikivoyage on the Wikimedia Foundation servers. The goal of this edit-a-thon was to encourage new editors to share their knowledge at Wikivoyage.

Users who participated in the creation/expansion of at least four accepted articles received a Wikivoyage Edit-a-thon barnstar.

The edit-a-thon's rules are included below. We also encourage new editors to read the following instruction pages and familiarize themselves with the site:

  • What is Wikivoyage?
  • Short guide for new editors — a short guide for new editors who want to participate in the 2018 edit-a-thon. The guide provides general information about Wikivoyage, how it differs from other travel guides, how readers can use the articles during trips, and provides explanations about adding and editing listings.
  • What is an article? — in what instances should a new independent article be created.
  • Goals and non-goals — what type of content is considered to be relevant for Wikivoyage and what type of content should not be included in Wikivoyage articles.
  • Ask a Question about the edit-a-thon.
