Dear Stefan, I see you have quite a big personal carbon footprint! As for wikimania, I am interested to hear comments on commerical interests in Wikivoyage and how to handle them so that Wikivoyage grows in a way that it does not become full of self-advertisers. --FocalPoint (συζήτηση) 12:34, 9 Αυγούστου 2013 (EEST)

I've heard this questions several times in interviews. It's an important question. In my point of view, only a big local WV community can avoid this and check the edits and articles. We don't want self-advertisers, but we can not avoid it 100 percent. There are many signs to recognise self advertising. Some users are stupid enough to use their hotel name as user name. Some do only one edit and disappear, or add only hotels of the same brand. Many use a very touristic speech, like a commercial, some change the order of the entries. I am aware that it's not easy and needs man power, man power that some language versions may not have. Ask some stewards or ask us to become an admin on el: we can at least remove the official spam, but not the spam behind the words. At least my Greek deos not exist. If you have concerns, ideas, questions about this topic in general, just ask - I think it affects all language versions. So the Lounge at meta is a good place. -- DerFussi 13:27, 9 Αυγούστου 2013 (EEST)
