Benefits of creating an account[edit]

Creating an account at Wikivoyage gives a bunch of benefits:

  • Easier communication — you will receive others' comments on your personal talk page, even if your future visits are from a computer or device at another IP address.
  • Gain credit for your contributions.
  • Build a reputation — allow other Wikivoyagers to distinguish you from other anonymous users, and provide you with a greater level of trust.
  • Protect your privacy — your IP address will be displayed in the history of articles if you are not editing from a registered account, but registering will allow you to maintain your privacy behind an alias.
  • Have your own watchlist — a list of pages for which you want to keep track of future changes.
  • Become a docent — if you know a destination well and would like to share your knowledge.
  • Customize your Wikivoyage experience with the preferences menu.
  • Make your own books, a collection of Wikivoyage articles you can save in PDF, or buy a copy of from PediaPress.
