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).

Please note that massive changes by a new editor will be considered spam and the editor will be blocked. Try at the beginning making changes to pages describing places that you have actually visited.

Again, welcome and have fun! Bring out that hidden "Cruising Guide writer" in you. Istioploos 14:38, 11 September 2013 (BST)



Thank you for your contributions. A few notes:

  • It is not necessary to change ampersands (&) to &. The WikiMedia handles them.
  • It would be nice if you added your user name and date under "Last Visited & Details Checked (and updated here)". This shows other user that the information has been checked by someone who "has been there."

If I can be of any help please do not hesitate to contact me. If I am cruising it may take a few days for me to respond but I will do so.--Istioploos 07:31, 12 September 2013 (BST)

Last Visited & Details Checked (and updated here)

Please under this heading just enter the date of your last visit to the port or island and then s/v Seatern.

Do not enter there that you have updates any other information.

If you have provided substantial new material then also add your name under "Contributors to this page" --Istioploos 15:15, 15 September 2013 (BST)

Your requests

As per your request I added Tindari in Sicily. This creates an empty page. To populate it you click on it and then select "Create" on the top menu. After that, you find the appropriate template (in this case Template:Port, edit, and then copy it. Then you paste in the new page, make your changes and save it. To make it easy for you I have done so and fixed the lower navigation bar. Now it is up to you.

I also added under Marinas in the Laguna di Marano page Cervignano del Friuli. I did not create it but leave this to you. Here some hints for this:

Use the Template:Marina template.
Edit/Add the new material.
Replace the template's nav bar with the one from Laguna di Marano but add at the end of it "| [[Cervignano del Friuli]] |".
Add date of last visit and your user name under "Last Visited & Details Checked" header.
Add your user name after "Names: " under the "Contributors to this page" banner.
Finally save it.

The policy in the use of Google Earth/Map saved pictures is to first check if they are in public domain and then add an attribution in the download page.

Feel free to ask more questions or clarifications. This is how we all learn.--Istioploos 15:33, 19 September 2013 (BST)

My 'To Do' list

Finish Cervignano Trani Finish Senigallia

You say 'meter' we say 'metre'

For consistency with the rest of the Wiki (at least as far as the Mediterranean is concerned), could you please use the form 'metre' when making edits? Everywhere but in the USA, a 'meter' is something you use to measure electrical current, gas or fluids and not distance.

Meanwhile, thanks for all the useful edits you have done on the Italy pages.

Cervignano del Friuli

You'll see I've completed the new page you started for the above marina and boatyard. Could you please check it and add any information you can (e.g. the capacity of the lifting crane etc.? Thanks.

I note that you requested a new page on Tindari. Are you intending to complete an entry for this? As far as I'm aware, there is no harbour or marina at Tindari to merit a separate page, but maybe you know different.

If it's just an anchorage, then you should include details on the nearest port page, which is Portorosa, and delete the uncompleted page for Tindari.
