Wadi Bani Khalid[edit]

A body of water, or geographical feature, depending on how you look at it. Either way, it doesn't merit its own article.

  • Delete - texugo 19:01, 21 June 2012 (EDT)
  • Comment — This is a Wikipedia copy-paste job, so a speedy delete/redirect would be fine. I'm not sure whether this would merit its own article, though, in theory. It sounds like there is a village there at which you could stay, and that it is a commonly understood tourist destination, with springs, caves, etc. --Peter Talk 16:23, 18 July 2012 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:55, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

Kaesimsa[edit]

  • Delete, with any useful content merged into the article for the nearest town (which is what?). As stated at the beginning of the article: "Kaesimsa is a temple in North Korea." There shouldn't be Wikitravel articles for individual temples. Ikan Kekek 02:31, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Delete and merge to Chilbosan mountains I guess. Jjtk 03:49, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Is a mountain worthy of its own article? Perhaps the scant content in both Kaesimsa and Chilbosan would be better employed in trying to make Donghae Coast into an article worth reading. It doesn't look like North Korea has sufficient content to make several layers of district articles. Travelpleb 08:27, 19 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Merge & redirect since it is a possible search term. 21:19, 21 June 2012 (EDT)

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

Longqingxia[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)

Moskenesøya[edit]

  • Delete This page has almost no content. Can be added to the region page which itself could use extra content. Cheyenne 00:32, 30 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Redirect to Lofoten. The name could could be a valid search term.Travelpleb 03:03, 30 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Keep. --Inas 20:46, 1 May 2012 (EDT)

Result: Kept. The reasons cited for deletion are not valid according to Wikitravel:Deletion policy. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:03, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

Værøy[edit]

  • Delete This page has almost no content. Can be added to the region page which itself could use extra content. Cheyenne 01:47, 30 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Redirect as above. Travelpleb 03:31, 30 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Keep --Inas 20:46, 1 May 2012 (EDT)

Result: Kept. The reasons cited for deletion are not valid according to Wikitravel:Deletion policy. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:03, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

Rajrappa[edit]

  • A temple that shouldn't have its own article. –sumone10154 20:03, 30 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Redirect as appropriate. --Inas 23:42, 1 May 2012 (EDT)

Result: Redirected to Jharkhand. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:11, 4 August 2012 (EDT)
