Wikitravel:Votes for deletion

From Wikitravel
(Redirected from Vfd)
Jump to: navigation, search

This page contains lists of articles and images which are recommended for deletion. Any Wikitraveller can recommend an article or image for deletion, and any Wikitraveller can comment on the deletion nomination. Articles and images are presumed guilty until proven innocent. After fourteen (14) days of discussion, if a consensus is reached to retain an article, it won't be deleted. Otherwise it will be deleted by an administrator. Please read the Nominating and Commenting sections prior to nominating articles/images or commenting on nominations.

Nominating[edit]

The basic format for a deletion nomination is the following:

===[[Chicken]]===
* '''Delete'''.  Not a valid travel article topic. ~~~~

Please follow these steps when nominating an article or image for deletion:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion. If you are unsure, bring up the issue on the talk page.
  2. For the article or image being proposed for deletion, add a {{vfd}} tag so that people viewing the article will know that it is proposed for deletion. The {{vfd}} tag must be the very first thing in the article, right at the very top, before everything else.
  3. Add a link to the article or image at the end of the list below, along with the reason why it is being listed for deletion. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~"). List one article or image per entry.
  4. If you're nominating an image for deletion, make sure it's actually located on the English Wikitravel - images that are located on Wikitravel Shared must be nominated for deletion there instead.

Commenting[edit]

All Wikitravellers are asked to state their opinion about articles and images listed for deletion. The format for comments is:

===[[Chicken]]===
* '''Delete'''.  Not a valid travel article topic. TravelNut 25:25, 31 Feb 2525 (EDT)
* '''Keep'''.  There is a town in [[Alaska]] called Chicken. ~~~~

When leaving comments:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion.
  2. You may vote to delete, keep, or redirect the article. If your opinion is that the article should be kept or redirected, please state why. If you are in favor of redirection, you may suggest where it should be redirected to. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~").

Deleting, or not[edit]

After fourteen (14) days of discussion, there will probably be consensus one way or the other. If the consensus is to keep, redirect or merge, then any Wikitraveller can do it. If you are redirecting, please remember to check for broken redirects or double redirects as a result of your move. Remove any VFD notices from that page, and archive the deletion discussion as described in the next section.

If the result is delete, then only an administrator can delete. Check if any article links to the image or article in question. After removing those links, delete the image or article. However, if the image is being deleted because it has been moved to the shared repository with the same name, do not remove links to the images, as the links will be automatically be pointed to the shared repository.

Archiving[edit]

After you keep/redirect/merge/delete the article, move the deletion discussion to the Archives page for the appropriate month. The root Archives page has a directory. Note that it's the month in which the action was taken, rather than when the nomination was first posted, that should be used for the archived discussion; that way, recourse to the deletion log can lead subsequent readers right to the discussion (at least for the pages that were deleted).

If the nominated article was not deleted, then place another (identical duplicate) copy of the deletion discussion on the talk page of the article being kept or redirected.

Arora travels amritsar[edit]

  • Auch, this page has been here for a year :) CheeseCrisps (talk) 14:01, 23 November 2014 (EST)
Page has been deleted. Thanks for spotting that one. Adzas (talk) 15:57, 23 November 2014 (EST)
Thanks to both of you! --Ttcf (talk) 17:48, 23 November 2014 (EST)

Buy Instagram Followers and Likes Reviews and Buy Instagram Followers Reviews[edit]

Please delete these spams, thanks. --Whym (talk) 02:03, 8 February 2015 (EST)

Thanks! Don't worry about spam! Our admins delete it on a regular basis, going through the Recent Changes list. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 04:57, 8 February 2015 (EST)

Cal Poly[edit]

According to our guidance we should not create aricles for universities. Moreover, even such universities like Harvard don't get their own articles on Wikitravel. That's why I nominate Cal Poly to be deleted. I didn't delete it straight away as I want to give it's author the chance to include the information from this page into San Luis Obispo article. Chhers, IBAlex (talk) 17:31, 9 February 2015 (EST)

Agree In principle, there could be a university which is so unique from its surroundings as to be a tourist destination but that seems unlikely. Specific campuses or locations like Disneyworld are definitely the exception to the rule. Koavf (talk) 22:57, 11 February 2015 (EST)
I noticed no further action was taken a year ago, so the article has now been removed. Adzas (talk) 17:55, 1 May 2016 (EDT)

Latin phrasebook[edit]

That article should be deleted. Latin is a dead language and it's not spoken anywhere in the world. GiulioC (talk) 04:37, 3 September 2015 (EDT)

Looks like nobody has a different idea about that page. I'm going to delete it. GiulioC (talk) 05:46, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

The Best Of Europe[edit]

Flight time may change in time, and all other tips are already on Europe's very page, so... (Although it's true that here you get a better picture, but still...) PierrB (talk) 07:21, 31 January 2016 (EST)

I agree. Adzas (talk) 06:54, 1 February 2016 (EST)
I also agree, as information is available in the Europe article. Wetter88 (talk) 12:18, 20 June 2016 (EDT)

New Career - Take Help From Job Consultancies[edit]

Clearly some kind of spam. Kind of wonky English but they're either soliciting job offers or offering employment opportunities. Either way it has nothing to do with travel. --Mukkakukaku (talk) 22:32, 2 April 2016 (EDT)

Hi, thanks for your input. Spam is deleted on a regular basis each day, so no need to add those pages here, unless you see one that has been created a while ago and was maybe missed. Thanks! Adzas (talk) 07:11, 3 April 2016 (EDT)


Bike & Hike[edit]

Clearly some kind of spam! --GF (talk) 03:21, 1 May 2016 (EDT)

Thanks for noticing that one, the article has been removed. Adzas (talk) 17:53, 1 May 2016 (EDT)

CozyNuk in Rajasthan[edit]

This page was created nearly a year ago. Its content looks copied from different websites and it's clearly made by a travel agency. GiulioC (talk) 09:16, 18 May 2016 (EDT)

Should be deleted, as far as I can see it is a business, not a location. Adzas (talk) 09:59, 19 May 2016 (EDT)
Deleted Koavf (talk) 23:26, 9 July 2016 (EDT)


Munduk villages[edit]

Inappropriate title that doesn't follow the WikiTravel guidelines. Munduk is the main village of note in this area; the other two villages are not big enough to warrant pages of their own. grace-g (talk) 23:28, 26 July 2016 (EDT)
