Welcome to Wikivoyage. You can edit your preferences to change how the software works for you. Please take a second to look at our copyleft and policies and guidelines, but feel free to plunge forward and edit some pages. Scanning the Manual of style, especially the article templates, can give you a good idea of how we like articles formatted. If you're new to our wiki software, MediaWiki, look at the Wiki markup to get an idea of how to edit a page. If you need help, check out the help desk, and if you need some info not on there, post a message in the travellers' pub.


Hi Andy, would you please clarify the purpose of the template you added at Template talk:Coord. --Peter Talk 02:09, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Hey again. I reverted your second removal of the experimental tag. It's necessary per Wikivoyage:Using MediaWiki templates to first gain some consensus that a template should be added to multiple articles. Personally, I think an inline geotag template makes a lot of sense, but I don't think the template as it stands looks good. I'll share my thoughts on the talk page. --Peter Talk 18:05, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
Please stop denigrating a well-formed and fully-functional template as an "experiment". Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:37, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
Did you even read the policy page? Again, Wikivoyage:Using MediaWiki templates#New Mediawiki Template proposals. We work by consensus here, so stop edit warring, it's poor form, and may lead to blocks. --Peter Talk 19:56, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
But your edit warring, of course, is perfectly acceptable? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 23:53, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
See Wikivoyage:Consensus#Status quo bias. If there is a disagreement, we go back to the status quo. (That is also the rationale behind our template policy.) So yes, your edit warring to defy policy is unacceptable, while my reverting to make sure our policies are followed is acceptable. --Peter Talk 00:22, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Andy, it might help to understand that the experimental tag applies not to the template's function, but to its usage. LtPowers (talk) 01:53, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
