An Idea

I was reading some topics on the forum squattheplanet.com and saw that they have some kind of discussion over people that you might meet when traveling around and why is good to avoid them. Some are just because they lie to you or simply because they are annoying but others are there for reasons more serious as stealing all your stuff, violent behavior or even rape. When I saw it the first time, I thought of it as a good idea and something that to my knowledge is not around for other countries (the forum is mainly about US travelers). Im thinking that HW is such a popular website that could host some sort of list of sketchy people and hopefully minimize incidents on fellow travelers that visit this site.

I know its quite a challenge to decide when someone's comments are good enough to be trusted. So that is why I come here and propose this idea, to maybe start talking about a way in which people can start reporting on other people' s behavior (or even places, events, etc) and that this can be transmitted to other travelers.

Sorry, such a list would be totally illegal in Germany (where Hitchwiki is hosted & legally based) as well in other European countries. Dangerous/illegal stuff should anyway be reported to local police. Let's concentrate building better peer review / reference systems on BeWelcome and Trustroots. Feel free also to improve "Awareness" section under Safety. Thanks for suggesting tho! -Mikael (talk) 19:57, 2 March 2015 (CET)

Testers wanted for Android app

I'm working on a script to convert MediaWiki dumps into an app. There's now an Android app for Hitchwiki. It's really alpha and not very usable yet. Your bug request and feature requests are very welcome. guaka (talk) 21:39, 14 March 2013 (CET)

The link to the app is not working. Not found on that server. Glavkos (talk) 16:40, 26 April 2013 (CEST)
