Hello, Hockeyman001! Welcome to Wikivoyage.

To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Project:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub.

I noticed your edits to the Upper East Side page - while the info you added is very useful, that kind of detailed "how to ride" info really belongs on the main NYC article, where you get an overview of how the transit system works. You're welcome to improve that section as you see fit. (WT-en) PerryPlanet Talk 21:37, 2 April 2011 (EDT)

NYC Getting Around Important Subway Lines[edit]

Hi. I appreciate all the work you've been doing on the New York City guide, but I'm wondering why you decided to delete the information under the subtitle "Important [subway] lines in Manhattan." Perhaps it's misnamed, since it actually wasn't singlemindedly Manhattan-centric, but was it still too Manhattan-centric for the New York City guide, in your opinion? Or were you perhaps intending to move it to the Manhattan guide? Or was it something else? If you prefer, we can discuss this on the "Talk" page for the New York City guide, but I thought you might have a better chance of seeing the initial questions here.
All the best,

-Hi Ikan. You are right. My initial thoughts are that after reading the New York City guide, a lot of the information is overwhelming and is downright confusing in a lot of areas. Living in New York, I am aware that our subway lines can be very confusing. However, I think the main purpose of a travel guide should not be detailing the individual subway routes. That is something a visitor should be redirected to see on an NYC Subway Map or Google Maps, and that what should be featured on the main guide is general information about how to safely and properly ride on the subway. In NYC, every subway line is important in some way because there is so much to see and do. The section in question was highly Manhattan-centric, and therefore is best included on the Manhattan page (and the outer borough components best included there) as it addresses many of the neighborhoods and tourist attractions discussed on those boroughs' respective pages.

I respect your thoughts, Hockeyman. Perhaps you'd like to continue the discussion on the Talk ("discussion") page for the New York City article. Feel free to copy the exchange we've already had from this page or point to it. (WT-en) Ikan Kekek 02:57, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
