There is a migration ongoing for content unrelated to hitchhiking. I agree, that information on wifi is useful, but we end up with a lot of scattered info, if it is not sorted. Feel free to comment at the community portal! --Traumschule (talk) 17:31, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

Yup, I understand the approach.

From my point of view, getting to and from places in big cities to where the hitchhiking is meaningful, for example, some specific places on the route is usually unfeasible without the use of public transport. Not only me but also the hitchhiker community I attend is usually interested in this fact and for example the overall price needed to drive from place A to place B with/withouth public transportation.

I can not argue with the general rules... after migration, especially since I'm not sure if all elements work as they should (for example, I had a problem with the editing interface). I just thought it was automatically deleted for some IT reason. :)

There is probably no rule on that, it's a decision that has to be made by the community. If you say, you want the info there, it will stay, until someone has a better idea. Merging info is quite time consuming, so I prefer to have one designated spot, everyone agrees one, instead of half-updated content on both sides.
There are several travel wikis (wikivoyage, wikitravel, ...), but nomadwiki is one of the most free ones, so I like to improve it a bit. At some day everything shall be shown in a nice interface on trustroots as I understood, until then it would be great to have the info sorted. I try to improve the interface (forms and navigation), but they are easy to break (for example with unclosed brackets ...).
For public transport I am not decided myself, as some good spots are hard to reach without (for example Wroclaw has a lot of bus info intertwined with hitching tips).
Would it be ok to have a prominent link to nomadwiki at the end of the article to reach non-hitchhiking related info, or is that too uncomfortable? Ok, i see that public transport is useful for hitchhiking, but ... need to think about it :) --Traumschule (talk) 06:06, 3 October 2017 (UTC)
