From Hitchwiki

I am removing several photos you put on the entry for Kazakhstan as they are only tenuously related to hitchhiking advice. If you want to present your visual impressions from a hitchhiking trip through the country, I think it would be better if you posted them on some other site (and perhaps linked to that site in the "External links" section of the Kazakhstan entry).

Great freedom of speech on this "open source" website! All those pictures people uploaded from themselves during hitchhiking are of course much more helpful. From my point of view it is nice to have some pictures in the article because it makes it more comfortable to read and I can not exactly see any disadvantage. Dorfdisco

Dorfdisco, "open source" doesn't imply anything about how the show is ran. E.g. Linux is almost a dictatorship. It just means that you can go ahead and copy stuff from here and change it wherever you want, and even publish it and sell it. But well, nevertheless, hitchwiki is more of an adhocracy. See also how we want to keep Hitchwiki ;)
I think the text to image ratio was a bit low. I can see why Chris did what he did. On the other hand, I can also see that it's annoying to have stuff removed. I tried to find a middle ground by adding a <gallery> at the bottom. Hope you're both okay with this! Maybe add some more pics to the bottom. This can also be a good solution for many other pages. I mean, we definitely want more pictures, not less, also/even if they are just somewhat related to hitchhiking. :) guaka (talk) 17:57, 13 January 2013 (CET)
