Welcome[edit]

To the new, happier site! I've restored your admin rights too. I'd double check your userspace pages, since I tend to screw things up when moving the old pages. --Peter Talk 16:03, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Gorilla Jones (talk) 04:52, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello Gorilla, can I ask why you reverted the following edit? https://en.wikivoyage.org/w/index.php?title=Trans-Siberian_Railway&oldid=2478238&diff=prev 01:38, 3 December 2013‎ Gorilla Jones (talk | contribs)‎ . . (25,640 bytes) (-370)‎ I checked the Wikivoyage:Policies and it says 'A business should only be listed once per destination'.

Thanks for confirming the reason for the reversion. ̴̴̴̴̴Yabbox (talk) 09:37, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

See Wikivoyage:Tour, specifically 3 & 4. Thank you for your other excellent and informative edits, though. Gorilla Jones (talk) 13:15, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

ː Thanks, I understand now. I will try to update this page more over time. I understand that direct advertising would become a nightmare on this site in general, but also believe it would be a good resource to list available agencies in a market such as the Trans Siberian Railway, where you face many barriers when trying to plan the trip directly. Yabbox (talk) 08:19, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, planning that trip directly would be very difficult. Since we can't list all of the agencies, what would be helpful is to describe the qualities/services that a traveler should expect from their agency. It's easy enough for a traveler to find an agency via web search, but this article could say something like "If you're planning your trip through an agency, they should be able to handle your visas, make hotel or homestay reservations at stops along the way," etc. Gorilla Jones (talk) 18:41, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your service as a Wikivoyage administrator.
