Hi Fede! Welcome to Hitchwiki and thanks for giving back good information! guaka (talk) 12:10, 14 October 2012 (CEST)

Page moved

Hi,

I moved your user page to the correct, "User:" prefixed, section of the wiki. Prino (talk) 12:19, 14 October 2012 (CEST)

Morocco

I've kept your report on the Morocco article but moved it to the "Personal experiences" section. I don’t understand how you go caught 3 times in one trip, since the number one rule of sleeping rough (in any country) is not to be caught. Now, I and a few of my friends have been caught sleeping outside in Morocco but were usually treated quite nicely by people. I can only imagine that your demeanor and personal appearance was at fault here. instead of complaining about the police not liking "vagabonds" (I don’t like "vagabonds" much either, and I’m a hitchhiker), maybe it would be better to try to look as presentable as any ordinary tourist.

Please use correct spelling and punctuation on Hitchwiki (that is, write "you" and "don't" instead of "u" and "dont"). Based on my extensive experience, I cannot agree with your claim about Moroccan police, so I ask that you not write about this outside of the "Personal experiences" section.

never used hitchwiki for talks so dont how actually it works, try to answer here what u wrote me about police. i was not "complaining" cause first i dont like doing it in general and secondly i dont think here is the place for that..sharing experiences and helping others is how i conceive this wiki, thats why i thought it was useful share mine. u r somehow right about my look/appearance, i didnt and dont like tourists in general, and morocco is overcrowded of them, that means (i guess u saw it) every 2 second, wherever, u r asked for rooms, hotel, any other tourist cheating stuff, they can clearly see u r european, especially with green eyes and white face, i was too bothered by that sort of racism (all around the world, everyone but ok..) and thought my djellaba, long beard and good enough arabic were a good choice to keep bothering people away, probably would have been enough answering them politely (as i did in iran, though persian people are so much calmer and insist less than arabs). these were the elements made police classifying me as sure terrorist, take my digitprints, etc when it was enough checking database on computer, asking few questions and let me go. iwas caught 3 times cause was not afraid nor suspicious by people and instead of looking for a spot by myself i always felt safer asking locals. once, the worse, in chaouen, they straightly called police and brought me at station, but others were the security man of the mosque (i asked for a spot for my tent and they offered me the inside school, but responsible for security didnt feel comf without authorization of cops) to call them, or them directly to come by me while hitchin, next to algerian border, with such ridiculous excuses. im sure as one hotel employee said me, main problem was that i was speaking arabic, and almost no foreigner do, that was surprised and made suspicious cops as locals though i thought and still think they are not friendly towards "vagabonds" (dont know what u refer to with that word, saying u dont like them, i used it cause cops called me in that way when i said them i didnt have any stable job but if u refer to freeloaders begging in the streets me neither i like them) that meant, unconventional tourists, hitchhikers especially (bikers normally are more understood). hope to have explained enough (though im never able to do it, especially at pc and in a foreign language). ill update again police section without any reference to personal exp that ill keep as u put it (giving more details).

Busking

I don’t think such long, detailed descriptions of busking opportunities are relevant to Hitchwiki, but you might want to ask Guaka to set up a dedicated Busking wiki, which I've been thinking for a long time would be a good idea. CRCulver (talk) 03:33, 5 September 2013 (CEST)

Stonehenge

Could you please move the advice about illegally sneaking into Stonehenge to the cheap travel website that Guaka recently set up? Sneaking into a tourist attraction has nothing to do with hitchhiking, and there's already enough controversy about giving advice for blackriding, so recommending more illegal things just brings disrepute to our project.

Sneaking and busking

Hi Cristopher, sorry for late reply, never check it often the talks here plus it stopped to notify me via mail the changes don't know why so took even longer before i saw it and of course longer before i answered it. Anyways, i saw you removed it already so i guess no problem.:) . I apologize for writing useless and disreputing things to your (may i dare to say our? it's not mine but i feel like this as well) project. I misunderstood and misinterpretated the section any useful info, and watching your talks i can see im not the only one..im sorry but must agree with stewgreen that "It seems to me that Hitchwiki should take on that role rather just be a specialist STRICTLY hitch info site .. already most of the info on the wiki is not to do with hitching and can be found elsewhere" but this is a personal opinion, and i don't care being right etc. As for moroccan caughts or any other disagreeing i think the best way is to find a shared solution, and in this case writing all this stuff on nomadwiki seems to me the best one (even though hitchwiki as such a bigger audience and at least for sleeping and blackriding i think it should keep its info) I guess you also erased my part on Pamukkale more than 1 year ago and i guess the same should be done for Efes (http://hitchwiki.org/en/Selcuk) (just did it) being even more exhaustive than stonehenge. Im moving all this stuff on nomadwiki, if i hadnt misunderstood this too, there should be ok with illegal things (still curious about writing about shoplifting what do they think..) So nothing, just again sorry and ill write on hitchwiki only things related on hitchhiking, sleeping maybe also, though once also a spot i had written in copenhagen had been erased and couldnt see the reason..don't want to rewrite again, just save on mail what i write and copy it on other wikis.. cheers.
