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 Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. If you are familiar with Wikipedia, take a look over some of the differences here.
Thanks a lot for your edits to Tacoma! One small matter of format, though: Wikivoyage external links style is to always front-link, never to use footnote-style external links. I changed several links in Tacoma#Get in to front-links and you changed them back to footnote-style links. Please make them front-links.
Thanks again, and all the best,
Also, please use only listing templates, never the deprecated listing tags. If you are copying content from Wikitravel without crediting it, please stop, as that is a violation of its copyleft. I am reverting your edits to Beaumont because of this. In case you aren't aware of the history between Wikivoyage and Wikitravel, please read the link. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:42, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
- However, please use the shortest working URL for each hotel. Thanks a lot. Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:46, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
Commuter rail info
Hey there, I noticed you were adding a lot of detailed info on commuter rail systems to the Rail travel in the United States. I hate to cut out a lot of that stuff, given how useful it is, but that particular page was never really meant to serve as a comprehensive list of every commuter rail system in the country; rather it was meant more as a general overview (see Talk:Rail travel in the United States#Commuter rail info). I changed it to explain more the general state of commuter rail in the country and which cities travelers are more likely to come across useful (i.e., expansive or frequent) systems.
That being said, I don't want to discourage you from adding that info to Wikivoyage; that kind of useful, specific info on these systems would be really helpful on city/region guides. And if you have any suggestions on summarizing commuter rail on the Rail travel in the United States guide, I certainly welcome those! :)
- On a side note, I realize there were already a bunch of specific commuter rail systems listed before you started editing the page; that was something I had actually been meaning to address for ages, but never quite getting around to (oops!). So I can see how it may have looked like an incomplete list of commuter rail systems when you started editing. PerryPlanet (talk) 05:09, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Encyclopedia vs. travel guide
Happy New Year to you and thank you for all your helpful edits!
You might reconsider a few of them, though. I sometimes feel that some of the content you add may be unnecessarily encyclopedic in subject and comprehensive in scope for a travel guide. For example, what travel-related purpose is served by telling prospective travelers what range of zip codes they would need to use for snail mails to Tacoma and neighboring towns? Consider revisiting the Welcome, Wikipedians page to review the common differences in tone and goals of Wikipedia and Wikivoyage.
If you have any thoughts or questions, don't hesitate to post below, and we can discuss them.
All my best to you,
Hi, and thank you for your work in the Tijuana article, but would you like to help move listings to the district articles for the city? No specific templated listings should be in the article for the whole city. Also, I noticed that one or two of the hotel listings are touty. "Hotel X is very close to attractions A, B, C, D and E" is not an appropriate description for Wikivoyage; instead, the hotel's address and lat/long coordinates should be given, and then visitors should look at a map and make up their own minds.

Hi. Judging from your edits to Intercity buses in the US you know quite a bit about the subject. Do you happen to know anything about the topic in Europe? Currently our coverage in the get around section of the Europe article is lacking and partly outdated. We do have an article on Intercity buses in Germany but none on any other European country or Europe as a whole. Do you think you could help change that?

Hi Anyone150, great work you're doing on Eugene. It's a small thing, but it's helpful to travellers to let them know whether a number is dialled with (+1 541-999-9999) or without (+1 541 999-9999) the area code by adding or omitting the hyphen after 541. Please see WV:phone for more information. Thanks. Ground Zero (talk) 23:59, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
