Hello, Ottawahitech! 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. New users are also welcome to post any questions or concerns to the arrivals lounge. If you are familiar with Wikipedia, take a look over some of the differences here. If you want to contribute with information about the place where you live, see Wikivoyage:Welcome, locals.

Any questions about this stuff, let us know. All the best, ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 19:59, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Links to Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, Ottawahitech, and thanks for helpfully adding inline Wikipedia links to the Red Bank article; however, we don't use those on this site. See Wikivoyage:Links to Wikipedia. This has been debated a lot for years, but there's never been a consensus to allow such links, beyond highly restricted instances discussed at the link I gave you.

All the best,

Hi. The template you're looking for is {{subst:unsigned|username}}. Always a helpful thing to do when you see mystery comments written by 'no-one'!

I hope you're feeling more confident about when and why we use blocks now, but if you still have concerns let someone know. All the best, ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 00:05, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
