Images[edit]

  1. upload the image locally to Wikivoyage if you want to use it in an article here.
    1. save it from WP to your computer,
    2. then come back to WV, click on upload file in the left sidebar and follow the instructions.
  2. you need to add a disclaimer similar to the one in the file's summary section on Wikipedia.

Description: This is a logo owned by XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

Source: The logo is from Wikipedia.

Article: Main Page

Portion used: Full

Low resolution?: This is an SVG vector image of a registered trademark or a copyright-protected logo, seal or computer icon. This image should not be rendered any larger than is required for the purposes of identification and/or critical commentary. The default rendering of this image is of a size and resolution sufficient to maintain the quality intended by the company or organization, without being unnecessarily high resolution.

Purpose of use: The image is placed on the Main Page discussing XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.

Replaceable?: Because it is a non-free logo, there is almost certainly no free representation. Any substitute that is not a derivative work would fail to convey the meaning intended, would tarnish or misrepresent its image, or would fail its purpose of identification or commentary.

Other information: Use of the logo in the article complies with Wikivoyage non-free content policy, logo guidelines, and fair use under United States copyright law as described above.

Time formatting[edit]

Thanks, as always, for your very useful updates on articles. It is easiest for readers if we use one time format per article, rather than changing from one format to another to another through an article. There are two used in Wikivoyage -- a 12-hour format (e.g. 9AM-noon, 2PM-6PM), and a 24-hour format (e.g. 09:00-13:00 and 14:00-18:00), and we try to use the format that is used in the country the article is about. This is set out in our style guide, WV:tdf. I hope that helps. Keep up the great work.

Thank you for your very useful updates on articles, including the ones in Alberta articles. We try to make things easier for readers by using one time format per article, rather than changing from one format to another to another through an article. In countries that use a 12-hour format, like Canada and the U.S., the format we use is 9AM-noon, 6PM-midnight. For days of the week, we use these standard abbreviations: M Tu W Th F Sa Su. This is set out in our style guide, WV:tdf. I hope that helps. Keep up the great work.

Time and date formatting[edit]

Thank you for your excellent work on Lion's Head article. The Wikivoyage community has chosen time and date formats to make it easier for travellers to find information. Here are some key points from that policy (WV:TDF):

  • Use one of these formats: 09:30–17:00 or 9:30AM–5PM. Do not use both 24- and 12-hour formats within one article. Choose between formats by following predominant local usage. Ask yourself which format visitors will see in timetables, on shop doors and in newspapers.

24-hour format:

  • Use 00:00 for midnight and 12:00 for noon.

12-hour format:

  • Use upper case "AM" and "PM".
  • Use noon and midnight, not 12PM and 12AM.

Days of the week:

  • Abbreviate to the minimum number of letters – M Tu W Th F Sa Su – in lists and where space is short.
  • When combining days with time, put the days first: M–F 10AM–2PM, not 10AM–2PM M–F.

Thanks for your cooperation and for your contributions.

Time stamping[edit]

Here's an example of where putting a date in text makes a lot of sense.
