Hi! Thanks for your contributions and welcome to Hitchwiki! guaka 13:48, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Please stop changing heading to "Southwards", "Northwards", etc. The standard form is "North/South towards". Thanks. CRCulver 16:58, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Christopher, I'm not sure. Google gives me quite a bit of results for Southwards, even dictionary entries! But I know you're a native speaker, so I trust your judgment on this. Still, is there a definite answer (link) to this somewhere? guaka 17:19, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
"Southwards", "northwards" are adverbs. When you are specifying cities, you need a preposition. E.g. "Southwards Paris" are two words that don't parse together. But "South towards Paris" does make sense. That's just how the headings have been for the 3+ years I've been editing here. CRCulver 17:46, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
Incidentally, some pages have "North to" followed by destinations. That's fine too. CRCulver 17:47, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
