Aware default is centre of Egypt but it should be on the coast, half way down the West coast of Red Sea.

Hmm, we didn't actually have it set at all, so you most likely were just mapping something to Egypt, which then indeed will put it in the middle. I've added it now though :)

Cheers, I have a wiki for it (as mentioned) and all the marsa alam search results are the ones from me.

Not sure if its still a building site. In 5 years its meant to be a massive attraction with amphitheatres etc!

Hmm, now you've lost me? I thought you were talking about it as a destination on the travel map? There's not much actually on the Marsa Alam page and certainly not anything about it being a "building site"?

Strange I added a fair bit of information. Will look into it.

I was talkign about the map though.

I am sorry I went off at a tangent.

It is there http://www.travellerspoint.com/guide/Marsa_Alam/

Maybe Peter was editing it as I was in there.

He changed the name of the hotel to bold and named 43% credit

That's because he was editing things etc. Spelling, grammar, sentences.
Basically, if you edit a lot and it's good you will have a higher percentage.

You can see the fixes I made here: http://www.travellerspoint.com/wiki_compare.cfm?title=Marsa_Alam&new_version=2&old_version=1

In particular these things:

  • horus = hours
  • THe Elephinstone itself its a long them wall = The Elephinstone itself its a steep wall
  • full fo turles = full of turtles
  • airples = airplanes
  • Liveabroad = Liveaboard
  • caterign = catering

Fixing one word in a sentence will credit that whole sentence to the person who fixed it. This is why it's worth proof reading what you have written and fixing any typing errors. It may seem harsh, but I think it's actually kind of fair as it encourages better writing.

Firefox's spell checker is good for identifying some of the more obvious ones.

Oh, and the article is still quite short of course, so it would still be rather easy to bump up that percentage considerably by adding more information. ;)
