To do: check if the bus image is GFDL-compatible, and host it ourselves.


Why do none of the busses have another bus going the opposite direction? :-p

Handled that. :) æle 00:08, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Do tours in North America and UK really have names that are completely hyphenated? Currently "INTERNATIONAL-WIKI-TOUR". Is that just a carry-over from that German Wiki (non-WP) site? --Menchi 01:59 18 Jun 2003 (UTC)

No, that's just what those crazy tour bus guys over at MeatballWiki called them. They're spelled like that here for consistency. -- Stephen Gilbert 13:32 18 Jun 2003 (UTC)


Please read the message at Bus Management -- Best, MarkDilley -- basically, I think that the Multilingual Wikipedia Tour, and other wikis, would benifit from connecting in, en route, to the MeatBallWiki TourBusStop.


I'm setting up a MEDIAWIKI-TOUR at MeatballWiki. Any objection to having Wikipedia be the first stop on it? —User:ACupOfCoffee@ @ 00:15, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

I guess I'll take the silence as a general "No." —ACupOfCoffee @ 05:40, 9 January 2006 (UTC)


I'm tempted to MFD this as nn buscruft. --SPUI (talk - don't use sorted stub templates!) 06:02, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

It's Wikicruft, with most of the old-school wikis having a (CamelCased) BusStop webpage. This page should be kept for historical reasons, if for no other reason. BlankVerse 07:53, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
But omg buscruft. Listing the stops on a bus route. nn d. --SPUI (talk - don't use sorted stub templates!) 10:16, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

What is the purpose of this?[edit]

Suggest marking as historical or inactive. OlEnglish (talk) 00:57, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

It's publicity, no point in smacking a tag over the page.--Ipatrol (talk)

I only found out what this about after reading Wiki#Wiki communities. -- OlEnglish (Talk) 13:01, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Its purpose is to continue to support the broader Wiki community from which Wikipedia arose. The tourbus brought many visitors to Wikipedia early in its history, and it is only appropriate that we retain it in order that those who stumble upon the bus stop at Wikipedia have an opportunity to visit other wikis that might benefit from their contributions. Although the tourbus coordination page at MeatBall has been down for some time, the adjacent sites linked on each of the tours remain active. The Uninvited Co., Inc. 18:35, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

"The guiding principle"?!?!?[edit]

NPOV is one guiding principle, but if you're going to pick one guiding principle, it'd have to be WP:V. --Dweller (talk) 15:38, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Um, the guiding principle on Wikipedia is WP:BB, guys. --STUART (talk) 12:00, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Seedwiki is down[edit]

Great, now where does this end?--STUART (talk) 12:00,

New bus line[edit]

I want to connect more wikis (like Hungarian,Slovakian,Frisian,Ethiopian wiki).Please help building!Are you ok with this project?This will be the 0 loop line.The line I want,is English-Hungarian-Frisian-Arabic-Ethiopian-Roman-Slovakian wiki.

Sounds like a great idea. -- œ 18:40, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
