I agree completely agree and reverted the Wikitravel template back to the
non-box version. The template now creates a standardized external link again.
IIRC, that change is what saved this template from deletion before. I just

My proposal would be to list *free content* websites
differently from normal ones, but to not give them a full-blown "sister
project" type box. For example:
== External links ==
| [[Free content]] links: |
| * Wikitravel |
| * Wikicities |
Supporting free content is fine, but whatever is used should be standardized
and not nearly as flashy as our sister project boxes.
