Hi Dxc! Cool that you are cleaning up a lot of wiki pages. On some pages I think you could leave the quotes though, at least when they are written in third person. e.g. "User:XYZ believes that this spot is bad for hitchhiking." In my opinion that adds a personal touch to the wiki. In many cases people do use the first person and then I would agree to delete it. What do you think? --N0id (talk) 00:23, 8 October 2020 (CEST)

Removing content

Hey, I noticed you removed a lot of content from pages. What is the rationale of this? Where is it decided that the information is useless? -- Platschi (talk) 17:21, 9 February 2021 (CET)

--- Hello im trying to remove not to Hitchiking related stuff, things you can find in Google/Wikitravel and also a Number Plates (thats not a useful way to search a rides). Also users opinion - Cant get ride in 3 hours isnt very helpful (lot of people struggles time to time, there was times when i had to hichike few days in one place, also few days in one place without sucess). When IN HURRY ON THE ROAD you need to find a CORRECT information on getting to your destination place and you dont want to read / trust MAYBE inaccurate user feedbacks? If you think that i removed SOMETHING important you can bring it back / let me know. - dxc

Hey dxc, I'm really happy with the work you're doing on Hitchwiki. Although, I strongly disagree with the blanking of pages you started doing (like here). It's important to leave these so if a user sees a town with no information, he or she can quickly add some! Can you please bring them back.

Thanks for the categorization you're doing though. Also, I hope that when you're removing content like here, you actually take the time to add it on NomadWiki or Trashwiki. It's essential to not lose information that can be useful (we had a discussion on the mailing list.

Same goes with users opinions. They should be moved to talk pages but not removed imo! You're losing a lot of content here. Once again: removing is not something that should be done lightly. Information that might not be worth for you might be important to someone else. Don't hesitate to add though. --Swaden (talk) 12:44, 18 February 2021 (CET)

--- Sorry about some wrong blankings. I just want to clarify that finding a wifi spot is something same hard as finding a supermarket. And im not removing user opinion - what im doing is integration them by updating hitchiking places based on user opinions. Do you agree that user opinions from year 2O13 ar 2O14 may be long time outdated - where is logic to keep them??? Also a Good Maps gives option to find a better hitchiking places - where is point to not update existing things - for example we have a bus stop as hitchiking place but if you reserach a place in Google Maps than you find that next bus stop has better option for driver to stop after the bus stop.... - dxc
