Welcome to CruisersWiki!

We all look forward to your valued contributions to the Cruising Wiki. Help it grow as a useful, free resource for all cruisers around the world.

Spend a little time reading the help pages (link in L/H menu) and the Style Guide to gain a better understanding of the Wiki formatting and how to edit articles. Please add what you can - even correcting grammar and spelling errors in articles is a great help. The more you use the Wiki the easier (and more addictive) it becomes.

Use any page's "Discussion" tab (top of page's menu) to ask any questions or make any suggestions about that particular page.

Please set your personal preferences in "My Preferences" (link at top R/H of page when logged in).

Also, please read the Cruiserswiki Copyrights notice, as well as the General Disclaimers (links at bottom of pages).

Again, welcome and have fun! Bring out that hidden "Cruising Guide writer" in you. Athene of Lymington 07:39, 17 June 2013 (BST)


Thank you for adding adding some new material to Ermioni. Here are some notes to help you on your future edits:

  1. There is no reason to add extra space in headers i.e. ==Berthing Options== should not be changed to == Berthing Options ==. Doing so is waste of your effort.
  2. The last entry in image (text after the last |) is the image caption. You should not had
    • edited out the existing caption "The Harbor of Ermioni",
    • nor should you hav added the file name in your addition, you should instead had added a descriptive caption.
  3. You should not encode ampersands i.e. ===Marinas & Yacht Clubs=== should not be changed to === Marinas & amp; Yacht Clubs ===.
  4. There is no reason to add extra blank lines under a header.
  5. Again there is no reason to add extraneous breaks such as <br> as you did after the text in ===Anchorages ===. By the way the recommended way of adding breaks, when really needed, is <br />.
  6. Your signature should be --[[User:Maelms|Maelms]] [[Image:Norway Icon.png]] and not -- [[Maelms|Maelms]]&bnsp;[[Image:Norway Icon.png]]
  7. You completely messed up the two banners "Contributors to this page" and "Cruising Wiki Navigation". At any rate the separators "|" in "Navigation" should not be encode but left as they are.

Please do not get discouraged. We all made many blunders when we first stated editing this wiki. And do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or to discuss anything concerning the wiki.

Happy Holidays

Your recent additions to Greek islands are very good.

For purely aesthetic reasons I adjust the "perrow" parameter in <gallery> so that it shows the same number of pictures per row, So, for 3, 6, etc pictures I use the "perrow=3" and for 2,4, etc "perrow=2". I never use 4 because most screen displays are not large enough.
