Hello, fellow Wikivoyagers! My name is LivelyRatification (but really it's Alison), and I'm a user of Wikivoyage, I suppose. I use she/her pronouns, and I'm based in Melbourne, Australia. I'm currently working on upgrading Gippsland articles to usable status. The funniest statement I have seen so far while researching for this wiki is a hotel in Sale that advertised itself as "at the edge of the Gippsland Riviera".

I suppose I've been on a bit of a Wikivoyage break lately (though that might not be the case when you read this). I do intend to make/improve a fair few articles soon enough, but regardless, I tend to be perpetually lurking, so if you have a message you'd like to leave for me for any reason related to my wiki work, go to User talk:LivelyRatification, and I'll probably be able to respond to it!


I'm currently a docent for Stratford (Victoria). If you have any questions for me related to that destination, do ask at User talk:LivelyRatification, and I'll try to respond to it when I can.

For your great work on editing Victorian articles. Wikivoyage would be so much different without you. And I hope Stratford becomes the first city/town article to become star on the south/east coast. --SHB2000 (talk) 10:14, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

For making Yarragon and plenty of other Victorian articles in the Gippsland area better. Hope I can use these when I next go there --SHB2000 (talk) 09:55, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
