Welcome[edit]

Hello Crouch, Swale! 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 are a Wikipedian then you may notice some differences in policies and the style of our articles. These include:

It may also be very useful for you to check out Wikivoyage:Welcome, Wikipedians. If you need help, take a look at Wikivoyage:Help, or else post a message in the travellers' pub or on my talk page. Thanks for contributing!

Thanks for creating Hadleigh. You've made a good start, and I hope you continue to expand it. Best wishes, ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 14:59, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Did you mean to move the railway walk back under 'See'? Walks are normally 'Do', because they're considered an activity, per Wikivoyage:Where you can stick it.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 15:18, 21 April 2020 (UTC)
@ThunderingTyphoons!: no I didn't, sorry, I had an edit conflict and I used "Show changes" several times to merge you're changes but missed the "See>Do" move. Crouch, Swale (talk) 09:11, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Ah, no worries. Edit conflicts are always a pain.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 09:17, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Burton on Trent[edit]

Thanks for starting this article. I noticed what looked like a typo in the “Understand” section which perhaps you recognize and know how to correct. I don’t have local knowledge so I can’t correct it myself.

Thanks again for contributing! --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 13:00, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

That’s what I thought it was trying to say. Thanks! --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 13:04, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks SelfieCity that was indeed what I was trying to say! Indeed "grew up" not "brew up" that I got from the Wikipedia article. I haven't finished the article and will improve it over the next week or so. I don't have a street map of Burton upon Trent so I'm relying more on Google Maps and Google etc. Crouch, Swale (talk) 13:07, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
It's already going really well! If the typo is on Wikipedia then I apologize for correcting it as the issue is actually there. If you incorporate text or other material from WP, make sure to give credit using the template (along with a link to the WP page in your edit summary) for copyright reasons. There's also a website called that is recommended for coordinates, etc. when business information is available there, but if you can't find anything there Google Maps works as well. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 13:12, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
The typo was mine but I did get the information from Wikipedia, although it indeed appears to be general knowledge I indeed probably should have noted in my edit summary that I got it from WP, I'll add the template to the talk, thanks. Crouch, Swale (talk) 13:17, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Disambiguating non-ambiguous pages[edit]

Hi. I'm wondering why you are disambiguating non-ambiguous pages. There is an article for only one Wickford - the other link you created is for a non-existent article. There is an article for only one Leigh - you created one link to a non-existent article and another to a different name (Leigh-on-Sea). Thanks. Nurg (talk) 09:20, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Perhaps planning to create new articles for other places with these names? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 10:27, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
@Nurg: the Wickford in Essex is much larger and should probably have an article, though it might be only be discussed in Basildon (I might at some point write an article on it). The Leigh in Greater Manchester is much larger but it seems the consensus is that most GM towns are merged with their district. It does seem likely that someone looking for Leigh is more likely to be looking for the GM one. If its not usual to disambiguate when only 1 article currently exists (even if others should) then feel free to revert both moves, though if you revert the Leigh one a hatnote to Leigh-on-Sea should be added, thanks.
