Contributing Content to Drive the Americas

In the spirit of collaboration, this site is open for any and all roadtrippers to contribute information. There are several ways we make this the most comprehensive site providing current information on driving North, Central, and South America.  Please read the Terms and Conditions for the User Agreement.  

Option 1: Directly add your information to this site

This site is a wiki, so can be edited freely by anyone with an account (sign up now - it's free!).  To make a new wiki-page, look under your user login (left panel of page) and click on 'Wiki page' below 'Create content'.  If you want to make changes to an existing article, simply click the 'edit' tab above any content and make your changes.   If you do not see an edit tab, you are either reading a page that is not editable by the general public, or you do not have sufficient rights to edit. 

Option 2: Contact us

If you have useful information you would like to add to this site, please contact us and we can add it for you. The more specific, the better. If possible, please include phone numbers, prices, and addresses of any hotels or camping spots you are recommending. If you have specific border crossing experiences you want to share, please include the date and exact border location.

General Rules

Please do not use any copyrighted material on this site without appropriate permissions. You are welcome to contribute any work that is your own, work that is freely licensed or material that is in the public domain.

The number one rule of wiki editing, is to be bold. Dive in and make changes. Other people can correct mistakes later, so have confidence, and give it a try! There can be all kinds of editing conventions, rules, and philosophy governing the editing of wiki pages, but the "be bold" rule overrides these!

In general try to write clearly and concisely and make sure you are always aiming to do something which improves the wiki contents. An edit might be to contribute whole paragraphs or pages full of information, or it could be as simple as fixing a typo or spelling mistake.

Before you save a change, you can enter a short note in the Summary box describing your changes. Don't worry too much about this, or spend too much time thinking about it, but try to give a little description of what you just changed e.g. "fixed typo" or "added more information about sunflowers".  The summary gets stored alongside your edit, and allows people to in the wiki more effectively.

It's a good idea to use the 'Show preview' button to see what your change will look like, before you save it. This is also related to because every time you save, this is displayed to others as a separate change. This isn't something to worry about too much, but it's good to get into the habit of eliminating mistakes in your own work, by using a preview before saving, rather than saving several minor corrections afterwards. 

Remember you should always aim to improve the overall contents of the wiki with your edits.
