Another interested ex VTer here. I am enjoying the blogging aspect here as I used the travelogues on vt alot for blogging. Lately I have been reading blogs found by clicking on pictures here. That would also be good for tips if there was a link to a blog and visa versa. It would be fantastic for off the beaten path tips which are my favourite :)

And using the planner to save tips would be a great idea!

By the way, I know from discussions elsewhere that there are other VTers planning to join here once they've got their material downloaded (some are still working on that) and at least one has asked me to mention that she too will be keen on anything that helps transfer material and especially on anything that approximates the review set-up

Same as other, I´m here coming from VT.
My content in VT was with so about 200 remarks and a little more than 400 Photos not so much - so I saved it and will go now step by step.
Real, I agree it same other travellers here, the VT with the system of "Intros" and the following related Infos to this and this was a good way for "easy writing" - and easy seaching as well.

By the way just running first blogs in TP, my question here: After publishing the blog, it is able to edit this blog again? Or needs it than to publish the blog as "renewed one" & to delete the old?

I've had the same problem ullfri.

Hi ullfri, once you have written a blog entry you can definitely go back and edit it as needed.

Hi folks, Alla ex-Muscovite here
Not that I had moved, just going to write about Nice to start with here :))
Did I see the category 'location helpers' somewhere here, or did I mixed up something?

Did I see the category 'location helpers' somewhere here, or did I mixed up something?

Welcome!
We have something on this site called "Travel Helpers". From the "Control Panel" link at the top of the page, select "My travel help". On the resulting page you can select destinations from the travel guide, and specify in which way you can help out with queries about that destination. Once you've done that, you'll show up in the right hand column on the specified travel guide page (sorted by last activity) so that people can easily contact you directly (example: The Netherlands), and - if you'd like - you'll receive notifications whenever there's a new forum thread created where the poster has specified that the thread is about that specific destination, or when someone edits the guide page about that destination. Your profile will also show a complete list of destinations for which you can offer help (example: my profile)

Most existing travel helpers are helpers for entire countries (since this was how it was organized on the original site that was migrated to travellerspoint), but you can be a helper for a province, a city, a national park, or whatever you want. (And if there's no guide page yet for the destination you're an expert on, you can just create that guide page first.)

The amount of questions you get due to being a travel helper is not particularly high, but I'd still call the system a success: Particularly with forum threads about less visited countries, I often notice how it brings long dormant experts back out of the woodwork to just offer some great advice.

edit: Heh, and then I look at your profile, and see that you've already registered yourself as a travel helper for three destinations. Oh well, I guess the above can still be of use for others. :)

Another refugee from VT here.

I would be very interested in transferring my >1300 reviews from VT to your website.

Yes, I found it :)))
By the way, how does one start a page for a location not yet registered here?
I could well become a travel guide for Ventimiglia in Italy, at the French border, if the local tourist bureau picks me up :))))
