Offline appEdit

Is there an offline app to read wikivoyage? —The preceding comment was added by 37.167.232.12 (talkcontribs)

Hi. There is no official offline version of Wikivoyage, however there is provision here to download PDF versions of individual articles, or to create a book from a series of articles of your choice; these are free services, and can be found in the left-hand sidebar on the desktop version, under 'Print/ export'.
There is also at least one app available from the Play store, which you can download for free and which works completely offline. However, it's published by someone external to Wikivoyage, and so we can't guarantee that it is up-to-date or complete compared to the web version of Wikivoyage. Hope this helps, ThunderingTyphoons!

Can't create user Article for myselfEdit

Hello!

I'm trying to create a user article to describe myself but I'm simply getting denied by Global "ntsamr"-pattern spambot filter for some reason.

Does anybody know what I can do to fix this?

For future people: I managed to fix the issue. At the end of the day what I needed to do was simply add more content and work on my formatting. Following the style guides got me through the spam filter without problem!
