The hitchhiker's guide of the Elftowners pages (or HHGTE) are for people to travel around the world through each others' pictures, with the hope to arouse the interest for wandering and seeing beautiful places in actuality. It has been made with a similar mood to the Go and see the world kid!, and I wish people will find these pages as entertaining.

As you share this like for wandering through nice pictures, you may be interested in submitting your own photos and be somehow a guide to these places you’ve been to. In that case, please go where to submit photos. The moderators will take care about placing it in the relevant section.
We're not specially looking for having a contest of the most extraordinary scenery picture, but rather seeking to discover through photos what gives some specific atmosphere of the different places around the world.

2006-09-02 [banu]: May I add [Blue Highway]'s that is Wandering in the Netherlands if you dont mind [syagre]?(or may [Blue Highway] add it?)

2006-09-04 [syagre]: Thanks a lot for your contributions, [Blue Highway]. To me, the pages you made for Wandering in the Netherlands, Wandering in Nice and Wandering in Marseille really look fine.
Maybe you could arrange Wandering in netherlands so that it lists Netherlands sub-wikis (and mostly 'sub-wikis-to-come'), a bit like what's done in the other 'country-wikis'... if you get my point...
Thanks again !

2006-09-04 [syagre]: And thank you [iippo] for your inquiry

2006-09-04 [Blue Highway]: That was my intention, and I will...but I need some more pics of other regions in the Netherlands. I've already been asking around a little, I'm hoping for some reactions :) Do you want me to add Marseille and Nice to your Wandering in France, like you've done with Paris, the Pyrenées, etc?

2006-09-04 [syagre]: Yep, [Blue Highway], that's about it, I'll appreciate those wikis to be added in the Wandering in France page

2006-09-04 [Blue Highway]: Done...I think... Made another banner for you as well, in case it is decided in the 'forum of patrollers/guides' that we are not allowed to use the present one. Maybe you could add a banner-section to your wiki, where 'artistic' travellers can upload a banner for public use, so that Elftowners can pick one ;)

2006-09-04 [Yoruno]: *gah* What a cute banner! ^___^

2006-09-04 [Blue Highway]: Thanks! It's simple, like all my 'artwork', but it clearly shows what the wiki is about, I think... Well...I just like drawing a little when I should be doing other things really...and this wiki has obviously inspired me, so I forgot about preparing dinner and started drawing ;)

2006-09-04 [banu]: I have loved banner you have done!!!Well done canım!!!!!

2006-09-04 [iippo]: I love that banner!
As for the forum stuff, so far the only response was "but it's too big" to which I explained that people will use img300 or we'll resize it... But no comment yet on whether it's ok as an image or not.

2006-09-04 [Yoruno]: I think [Blue Highway] has somehow solved the problem... now we have to wait for [syagre]'s reply ;) But I love that banner!

2006-09-04 [Blue Highway]: The forum members probably have more important things to discuss than an innocent banner :) Isn't there a proverb that says: Silence gives consent..? So I guess [syagre]'s banner can be used until we are officially told NOT to use it. I mean, you have ASKED, [iippo]...and many people don't even bother asking... But meanwhile, [syagre] is still 'conspicuous by his absence', and it's his wiki and his banner, so maybe he's the one to decide, no? ;)

2006-09-04 [syagre]: Good job here, [Blue Highway] ! Nice of you to have designed this banner ! uhmmm... I may think about doing some 'anti-aliasing' to this picture, but I wouldn't consider this prioritary... So, if you wish, let's apply [Blue Highway] banner to this page right now !

2006-09-04 [Blue Highway]: Thank you :) You may 'anti-alias' this picture as much as you wish, I've just enjoyed drawing it, it has no copy rights attached ;)

2006-09-04 [Yoruno]: I like the banner the way it is now... I'm a fan of Oekaki pics ^___^

2006-09-04 [Blue Highway]: =) I call this kind of 'art' Doodling in Paint, but Oekaki's nice...it sounds far more...professional, hehe! =^-^=

2006-09-05 [iippo]: Yeah, it may be that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but using a foreign name for any action makes it sound definitely cooler :P (oekaki means doodle in japanese, doesn't it?)

2006-09-05 [Blue Highway]: hehe! Yes. But if you won't tell, I won't tell, okay..? ;)

2007-01-11 [Zapinc]: Where are all the towels?

2007-05-20 [syagre]: Whee ! Me back, after some months of sleep and the absence of a home internet connection... so, I'm almost ready for an update... to begin with, I'll be opening a wiki about Canada very soon !
