Hello, Local hero! 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 for hitting the ground running and making all those edits! You might want to look at Talk:Macedonia (country)#Cities for one of them, though. "Cities" lists except in bottom-level articles shouldn't be longer than 9, per this site's 7+2 policy.

Please keep contributing!

All the best,

Hi! First, thanks for your contribs to Macedonian articles. In the case you're wondering when a city can be rated "usable", it's very straightforward. The article needs four things: how to get in, at least one attraction, at least one place to eat and at least one place to sleep. "Guide" status, on the other hand, is rather loosely defined but a good rule of thumb is that everything the average traveler would need to know should be in the article.

Got it, thanks! Local hero (talk) 20:09, 22 August 2016 (UTC)


What a great start on Prespa (Macedonia)! You've very quickly made yourself a valuable member of Wikivoyage! Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:52, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Thanks a lot! I'm definitely enjoying expanding Wikivoyage's coverage on some places in Macedonia. Local hero (talk) 03:47, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Wikidata IDs[edit]

Allow me to be the next person to thank you for your excelleng contributions to (North) Macedonian destinations! One tip/request: when adding listings with Wikipedia links, please click the "WP" button in the listing editor to import the Wikidata ID, or put the ID in directly, if you know how to find it. Having the ID enables syncing listing information with other wikis. This makes it easier to get some kinds of information, and allows us to send our own information back to other language editions and sister projects. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello and thanks for this info. I was unaware of this but I'll try to make sure this gets imported in my future additions. Best. Local hero (talk) 21:27, 11 May 2019 (UTC)


Hello, LH! Per this edit of yours, do you plan to add Kokino to another article? While I am not sure how popular the site is, it seems to be very important archaeologically, and is listed at Prehistoric Europe, so it has to have a listing somewhere, with the relevant links adjusted.

Hi Vidimian, thanks for reaching out. I plan on adding Kokino to Staro Nagoričane (once I create it). However, I'm going thru each Macedonian municipality alphabetically (currently at Kumanovo) and it will take a while before I get there. So, I'll re-add Kokino to the Kumanovo article for now and then transfer it later. Thanks. Local hero (talk) 21:33, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Got it, thank you. Vidimian (talk) 21:49, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
