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

Users who participate in the creation/expansion of at least four accepted articles will receive 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 familiarize themselves with the site:

  • 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 the edit-a-thon.


Help us grow by improving, if only slightly, the articles about the destinations that interest you the most.
  • The edit-a-thon will take place between January 16 until February 15, 2018
  • To participate you'll need to contribute while being signed in with an account (if you already have an account with any of the Wikimedia Foundation sites like Wikipedia, Wikiquote, etc please use that account).
  • listings added should include at the very least a name, address, coordinates and description. Wherever possible, please include practical information to the listings such as hours of operation, prices, website URLs, contact phone. (Examples for articles which have listings with good descriptions: London/City_of_London and Manhattan/Midtown_East)
