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. Pashley (talk) 16:43, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi. Is User:188.8.131.52 also you? I ask because we would normally revert edits to a user page by anyone but the user him-/herself.
All the best,
Hi Ikan Kekek, yes it was me, I just forgot to log in before doing the modification. Thanks, Albanbruchig
Welcome to Wikivoyage, and thank you for your contributions.
We follow some standard formatting conventions in Wikivoyage to make it easier for readers to get the information they are looking for.
Ikan Kekek and I made changes to the Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to bring it in line with Wikivoyage:Manual of Style, which you undid in your last edit. I don't want to revert you edits, because then we would lose some of your changes, so I'll ask you to fix them as you go:
- The Wikivoyage community has chosen time and date formats to make it easier for travellers to find information. That policy (WV:TDF) says to use the 24-hour clock (e.g., 09:30–17:00) in countries, like France, where that clock is used predominantly, because that is what visitors will see in timetables, on shop doors and in newspapers.
- For days of the week, we use these standard abbreviations: M Tu W Th F Sa Su.
- "Daily" is a simpler way of saying something is open every day, so we use that instead of "M-Sa".
- Wikivoyage:Section headers says that section headers should follow the same rules of capitalization as article titles: capitalize the first word in the title, and any proper names. Everything else should be lower case. Sub-headings are not italicized.
- Wikivoyage:Capitalization tells us not to type all in capital letters. Just because a company types its name all in caps to draw attention to itself (BuY PARIS DUTY FREE), it doesn't mean that we should.
- "VAT" stands for "value-added tax", so "VAT Tax Refund" is redundant.
I know this seems like a lot, but I draw your attention to these things because Ikan Kekek and I have already cleaned up your edits once. Thanks again for your contributions. Ground Zero (talk) 19:24, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Hello Ground Zero, I am sorry about that, I didn't pay attention to Ikan Kekek's message. I will change what I did for my modifications to be conform with the conventions. Thanks for the info :D Albanbruchig
