Hi,
I would like to offer travel help regarding the Caribbean region. Of course, haven't travelled all islands, but there are at least like 4 or 5 which I would like to help in some way.
The only thing is, that the Caribbean region is not a possibility. Could this be added please?
Thanks!
Michael.

It should be easy or not?

Actually, this needs to be done with some caution, just to ensure it doesn't break things in other areas. I do think it is a good idea though and we can coincide the list with the countries listed in the Caribbean travel guide.

I'll try to look into it soon for you.

Hi Peter,

Just bringing this higher up the list again.
Hope you don't mind. Did you have a check about the possibilities?
If not, just let me know, and I will ad some specific island instead as a travel helper.

Cheers!
Michael

Hey Michael,

Nothing's actively happening with this at the moment, but we did discuss it briefly while Sam was here a couple of weeks ago. Our plan is to ditch the current travel help system and replace it with one that is integrated into the guide. So basically, *any* guide article could have a helper associated with it. I think this kind of integration will both help the guide as well as help the travel helper system. It means that you can be a helper for extremely specific things like the town that you live in, instead of being a helper for the whole country.

Not an immediate priority, but what do you think of that approach?

I think that is a very good idea, as I guess that travel helpers for a country or region don't know everything of course of that specific area. it is much more easy to know more of smaller places, like your own provincie, city or even neighbourhood. Does it mean you have to add you as a travel helper to every single article by the way?

Yes, I think that is indeed how it would work. But hopefully we can streamline that process as well, so it's an easier thing to do.
