( documentswhy we work on Hitchwiki )

BeWelcome is a hospitality exchange network based on free software and non-autocratic principles. It could be cool to integrate information back and forth.

Used templates


Integrate information from Hitchwiki in BeWelcome

  • where?
  • how?
  • who wants to code it?

Integrate information from BeWelcome in Hitchwiki

  • location pages could show a box with BeWelcome members
    • members need to have logged in recently, and have public profiles

See Brussels for a little first thingy - just a link to a BW city page right now, through Template:BW. And check Hamburg for an addition of this to the Infobox.

Couple user information

  • make it easy to link BeWelcome profile to Hitchwiki user page and vice versa
  • OpenID? Single sign on?
    • Hitchwiki already has OpenID, make it clearer to people they can use this

Next visitors to your city

  • make it very easy to add yourself to "Next visitors to your city" on city pages.

Random notes

  • if it goes anywhere the same could happen with Trashwiki and/or Couchwiki


  • I just came up with this today and I think it's way cool :) Plus I'll be capable and happy to work on the tech stuff from Hitchwiki's side. guaka 20:34, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Sounds like a good idea to me. I guess I won't be able to implement much of it, but let me know if you need any help anyway. --MrTweek 18:18, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
