VFD Discussion[edit]

  • Delete. From the article: "Longqingxia[...]now is the [Beijing] city reservoir." We don't do articles on bodies of water. Ikan Kekek 05:22, 18 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Weak Keep.  : I don't think the body of water rule applies. The main decision here is whether it is an attraction or a destination. It seems to be too far from Beijing to be part of that article, and you can camp there. I'll defer to the opinion of someone more familiar with the area, however. --Inas 05:53, 18 April 2012 (EDT)
Why wouldn't the body of water rule apply? Ikan Kekek 10:14, 18 April 2012 (EDT)
As with most of these discussions, the article isn't just about the body of water, but it is about the region about it, where you can walk, shop, camp, etc.
My observation, after having many discussions on deletion based on the 'body of water' rule, it rarely informs us whether to keep or delete. A article on a mountain is just as likely to be on the hit list as a lake. The question is whether it constitutes a region to be visited, and if so whether that region fits, or if the information should be included elsewhere. --Inas 00:35, 19 April 2012 (EDT)
I think it is a merge & redirect candidate. Merge because it seems to have some info worth keeping. Redirect because it is a possible seach term and because policy is to redirect rather than deleting where possible.
It would be be worth keeping only if it fit well into the Beijing district hierarchy, which I do not think it does. Pashley 03:42, 19 April 2012 (EDT)
Seems to be in Yanqing County, therefore it would make sense to include in information in Beijing/Rural Beijing? --Inas 00:24, 20 April 2012 (EDT)

Result: Merge tag added for Beijing/Rural Beijing. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:03, 4 August 2012 (EDT)
