Thanks for your edits to Berlin, but please don't write in first person on Hitchwiki. ("We waited 10 minutes") On a community-edited site like a wiki, it is not clear who "I" or "we" are. So, we must keep everything in a neutral, third-person tone independent of any one person's experience. Also, don't report waiting times in articles. Waiting times can be reported on the Hitchwiki Maps overlay where everyone's waiting times can be averaged together. Could you please go back to the Berlin article and fix what you wrote? Thanks!

"That's the style I observed in many articles I read. And I have to say I find it useful. " If you see articles where someone has written "I" or "me", that is a mistake and you can help everyone out by fixing it and rewriting the passage in third person. If you want to express uncertainty about a hitchhiking spot, you can do that without mentioning your own experience and definitely without writing in first person. Please respect this. Thanks!
