comment Are there countries other than the USA where you are required to collect your luggage even in transit?
Brazil, too, I think.

@blackbird57 Besides promotion and marketing, I suspect a boost could also be had from making adjustments to the visuals and functionalities of the site. I'm personally a strong supporter of the no-frills look and feel of travel.se, but it's not the kind of format that is easily associated with the fun of travel. Compare travel.se with trippy.com and you will understand the more general appeal of that site. (Also, they have what I think is a cool feature, where locations mentioned in posts are automatically put on a map.)

comment Is reimbursement possible for a headset cable that was broken by the service cart during a flight?
This is the kind of thing a half-decent travel insurance could be used for.

comment How does one go about planning a lengthy stay on a carribean island?
You're addressing multiple points. You're probably better off splitting them up in individual questions. And, your questions might be better served at expatriates.stackexchange.com. That said, internet connectivity will be decent, but whether it's good enough depends on your needs. You can start renting through something like airbnb and then look for an actual place while you're there. You will probably have an easier time in one of the ABC islands as opposed to, say St. Martin. (But, on the ABC islands, you probably also will need a car.)

As @GayotFow says, the only real solution is to get more and more diverse questions onto the site. The visa questions will remain, there's obviously a 'market' for them, but when offset with enough questions about destinations, they won't effectively take over the site. And, the longer visa questions feature prominently, the less likely it will be for us to make a change that I think is important, even necessary. tbh, to achieve this, the emphasis probably needs to be more on marketing than moderation, and perhaps on lowering the threshold for inclusion (of users, not content).

comment Early-morning food at Népliget bus station in Budapest?
It has been many years since I was in that situation, but, yes, I could. As a general rule of thumb, if there's a bus departing, there's someone selling something to eat and drink.

comment Maximum hand luggage volume?
Thanks for the tip. 150 USD at Amazon is quite steep, though. I'm currently doing Amsterdam - Brussels - Brighton - London - Thessaloniki - Skopje - Pristina - Budapest - Berlin - Amsterdam and all my journeys together cost only a bit more than that one backpack on Amazon :)

You're asking a lot of questions and should break up your post into multiple individual questions.

Your description of your backpack sounds interesting. Have you got a link?

Wizzair has bases in three European countries, if my memory serves me well. Not just Hungary. If you mean intra-continental trips, Wizzair is one of the main European providers.

My concern is primarily for when stringing a series of flights together, when you won't be able to swap bags mid-journey.
