Hello, ExploreFeelGood! 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 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 adding content to the Vientiane and Sa Pa articles.

As a marginal issue, I'm not sure we normally want to tell readers what they should consider a good value. It's probably best to describe what is provided and give prices in the "price" field of listings, and leave it at that.

All the best,

Hi there! When you delete several listings in a row, as you have done on Vientiane, it's normal to leave an edit summary in the narrow box below the main edit window, explaining why you're doing so. A simple "these have all closed" is fine, but not writing anything looks a bit suspicious. Would you please reply to this comment with a short explanation as to why you deleted those listings? Hope to hear from you, ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 11:18, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
I've replied to your questions on my talk page. ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 12:19, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Questions of tone[edit]

Thanks a lot for continuing to add content! I hope you continue to do so, so it's worth considering Wikivoyage's style and tone. Please have a look at this edit and look at Wikivoyage's don't tout page. Regardless of whether you are or are not being paid to promote hotels, every user should keep these guidelines in mind.

Thanks again, and if you have any questions after you've read that link, please feel free to ask them in a reply below.

All the best,

Hi Ikan I can confirm that I'm not paid to promote hotels here (or anywhere else). But if you know of some companies ready to pay for that, let me know :p All jokes aside, I had read a few pages, read more in detail, I certainly get it more now than before, but even like that it's hard to choose the words, when it's mentioned that on the other hand Wikivoyage shouldn't feel like an encyclopedia and travel writers should stay enthusiastic... And actually, I added my first listings, without reading the guidelines I must admit, but copying the style of many I've seen along the years I was just a user. Hopefully the right balance will be found ExploreFeelGood (talk) 15:44, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

No worries. Just do what you can. Other folks can always edit things they feel would benefit from an edit. Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:34, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
