I am based in the Pacific Rim of the Asia-Pacific region and interested in Aviation topics - especially Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and the destinations they fly to.

I prefer to be called just Alice

  • To contact me about an urgent matter, e-mail: Singapore.Alice [AT]

I make a lot of edits to try and ensure our articles are accurate, helpful and understandable.

Articles I still need to work on include:

and South Island Circuit

[[Wikivoyage:Welcome, newcomers|Welcome]] to [[Wikivoyage:About|Wikivoyage]]!

Thank you for your great contributions to our '''[[]]''' article.

To help you contribute, we've created a [[Wikivoyage:Tips for new contributors|tips for new contributors]] page, full of helpful links about our [[Wikivoyage:Directory of policies and guidelines|policies and guidelines]] and [[Wikivoyage:Manual of style|our house style]] as well as some important information on [[Wikivoyage:copyleft|the way your contributions will be licensed]] and basic stuff like [[Wikivoyage:How to edit a page|how to edit a page]].

However, even more important than following every guideline is to [[Wikivoyage:Plunge forward|PLUNGE FORWARD]] and write something useful – someone might be along to help with the proper formatting later - but please don't [[tout]]! 

Add your home town, or a '''place you know well''' or write some '''insider tips''' - but don't use [[Wikivoyage:First person pronouns|first person pronouns]].

It's also a good idea to [[Wikivoyage:How to create a user account| '''create your own account''']] on Wikivoyage because it will provide various benefits: 
# easier communication with other writers about your edits and travel tips via your [[UUTP|very own ''User Talk Page'']]
# credit for your travel writing and edits, which will all be attributed to '''you''' rather than just an IP address
# your contributions will become more trusted as you become familiar to other Wikivoyagers as a frequent editor with a history they can check

If you need help, check out [[Wikivoyage:Help]], or post a message in the [[Wikivoyage:travellers' pub|travellers' pub]]. We're looking forward to seeing you again here on Wikivoyage! --~~~~

A block is a technical tool in the power of administrators for disabling a user's ability to edit. In its normal settings, it allows the user to still discuss on their talk page (such as asking for clarifications, saying it might be a mistake, or saying they would not do so again) and applies an auto-block on the user's underlying IP.

A ban is a community decision to disallow the user from editing on the project with any account or IP whatsoever. It is implemented by administrators via a block, and it is generally reserved for established contributors, where community input is required.

A lock is a technical tool available to Stewards thru' meta that disables a user's login access. It is used only in the direst and less collateral damage-prone of cases as it does not allow the user to appeal their sanction easily, nor are they notified of the reasons of the lock. It also does not apply an autoblock.
