Contents

Green travel[edit]

  • I'm all for a Green travel article but this is just pushing an online travel agency. I'd say "keep" if someone can figure out how to organize it. Otherwise delete. --Wandering 15:56, 14 January 2008 (EST)
  • Delete unless someone contributes an outline and some meaningful content. ~ 203.144.143.6 16:16, 14 January 2008 (EST)
  • Keep as a travel topic; remove mentions of specific travel agency (2nd and 3rd paragraphs), but mention that such agencies exist. Leave the article as stub and let it grow naturally, as more contributions appear. --DenisYurkin 16:19, 14 January 2008 (EST)
  • Keep but needs work As people are becoming more aware of the environmental impacts when they jet off around the world this page has to be written, more for moral ground than anything else, there are plenty of ways to minimize your impact while you travel the globe, everyone must have one or two, clubbing together (which really is what Wikitravel is all about) could produce an outstanding article to help guide people to travel both responsibly and enjoy it! Prof Jack 06:55, 17 January 2008 (EST)
  • Keeps and rework as travel topic --Nick 02:08, 20 January 2008 (EST)
I have added an outline and some starter info. I think this article has some potential. Not sure what section in Travel topics it will best fit into, so I have not yet added it there. --Nick 16:02, 1 February 2008 (EST)
  • Outcome. Kept.

Beirut/Manara[edit]

Completely blank stub, not linked to from Beirut ~ 203.144.143.4 02:24, 10 January 2008 (EST)

  • Delete Wikipedia lists a Manara in Israel by the Lebanese border, but nothing for Beirut. --Wandering 16:53, 16 January 2008 (EST)
  • Keep and template. Seems to be a valid district (see map [1] and google search). According to the map Beirut/Downtown refers to it correctly. --Nick 15:52, 28 January 2008 (EST)

Outcome: Kept and templated --Nick

European turkey[edit]

Incorrectly capitalised blank page that's not part of the Wikitravel article hierarchy ~ 203.144.143.4 15:43, 14 January 2008 (EST)

  • Delete, does not fit anywhere in the hierarchy --Nick 02:04, 20 January 2008 (EST)

Outcome: Deleted --Nick 12:23, 2 February 2008 (EST)

朗伊爾城[edit]

A {{vfd}} tag was added 6 June 2007 [2] but as no pages link to it [3] I presume it was never listed here; see also Talk:朗伊爾城 ~ 203.144.143.4 03:03, 15 January 2008 (EST)

  • Delete Tis a wedge with a very thin edge! --Wandering 16:46, 16 January 2008 (EST)

Outcome: Deleted --Nick 12:28, 2 February 2008 (EST)

Walking around the Jewish Quarter in Warsaw[edit]

Outcome: Deleted --Nick 12:39, 2 February 2008 (EST)

Gps rental[edit]

Per Wikitravel:What is an article (was created as an advertisement for www.gpsrentals.co.nz) ~ 203.144.143.4 08:04, 15 January 2008 (EST)

Outcome: Deleted --Nick 12:43, 2 February 2008 (EST)

Ohio Lodges and State Parks[edit]

A {{vfd}} tag was added 11 June 2007 [4] but as no VFD/archive pages link to it [5] I presume it was never listed here. ~ 203.144.143.4 03:21, 15 January 2008 (EST)

Not sure what happened here. --Peter Talk 04:23, 15 January 2008 (EST)
Aha, it wound up here, and I think this article should have been deleted, but got lost along the way. --Peter Talk 04:27, 15 January 2008 (EST)

Image:Makkah53.JPG[edit]

I'm almost scared to propose another image, but this one is not a licensing issue (at least I don't think so...). I've just uploaded it to shared. WTDuck2 16:27, 6 February 2008 (EST)

Salt Lake City/Sugar House and Salt Lake City/Rose Park[edit]

Clearly, Salt Lake City isn't quite ready for the huge city treatment yet, and seeing as neither of these articles (one an outline, one a stub) have any information, we might as well just dump them. PerryPlanet 14:42, 28 January 2008 (EST)

Outcome: Deleted. PerryPlanet 12:59, 11 February 2008 (EST)

London/Penge[edit]

I'd recommend merge/redirects for these London neighborhoods—even if a neighborhood is split across districts, you can always redirect to [[City#Districts]] --Peter Talk 20:14, 18 January 2008 (EST)
I agree with Peter, might as well redirect since someone might search for it. Pashley 02:15, 20 January 2008 (EST)

I uploaded new version of the picture to wikitravel/shared (The person on the left is no longer visible). See file Unfortunately, link in the article still leads to old version how can I override link to English version so that it goes to shared? --Nbumbic 18:14, 25 February 2008 (EST)

You did exactly the right thing, thanks. The photo here has now been deleted, and the one on Shared is certainly OK. The Baku article should point to the Shared photo after the next edit/clearing of cache. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 13:44, 28 February 2008 (EST)

Image:Giridih.jpg[edit]

The avalanche of license-less images continues, but in this case, a copyvio has been identified (see the Giridih article), so the delete is clear and 50-kilobyte arguments seem unnecessary... -- Bill-on-the-Hill 16:55, 5 February 2008 (EST)

Normandy (Tennesee)[edit]

Orphan/dead-end with deliberately misspelt name and zero content, created by regular page-creation troll. ~ 203.144.143.4 10:52, 26 January 2008 (EST)

i did not misspell it --Lone.guner 10:56, 26 January 2008 (EST)

Ditto, same troll - Special:Contributions/Lone.guner:

Fontvieille[edit]
Madison (Maine)[edit]
Tyson[edit]
Cornish (Maine)[edit]
  • I went ahead and speedy deleted these. Most are not articles destinations (can't sleep there) and Fontvieille is part of Monaco that is treated as one article without subregions. If anyone has valid objections to the speedy delete, drop note here and myself or another admin will undelete. We have enough real vfd's to manage, not need to clutter WT with nonsense articles. --Nick 14:59, 28 January 2008 (EST)

More of the same:

Cameron[edit]
Motels[edit]
  • I went ahead and speedy deleted this one. Not only is it a useless list, it is also a copyvio --Nick 12:13, 29 January 2008 (EST)
Owl City[edit]
Roland (Canada)[edit]
  • Keep this one. It does have a campsite and hosts an annual pumpkin festival
  • DELETE! Don't feed the trolls. WT WP ~ 203.144.143.4 12:18, 29 January 2008 (EST)
Yes, it is troll created (I have already speedy deleted many by the same troll), but that is not a concern here. The only concern is if it is a valid article or not. I think this one is and it does no harm for it to stay. --Nick 15:54, 29 January 2008 (EST)
Disagree - it is a relevant concern here, and it does do harm. Already debated ad nauseam on numerous Talk pages - suggest this really needs to be nailed down one way or the other on the Wikitravel:Deletion policy page. ~ 203.144.143.4 16:13, 29 January 2008 (EST)
  • whats your problem man 203 ip you need to chill and listen man the guy that said keep is doing whats right your the one whose wrong. --Lone.guner 14:31, 29 January 2008 (EST)
Delete. Since it has been defined and confirmed to be troll created, and the definition as per wikiworld is:Trolling is deliberate violation of the implicit rules of Internet social spaces. Delete it and any other pages related to this contributor. A google search did not find any Roland Ca and he is wasting all of our time. 65.24.110.210 16:19, 29 January 2008 (EST)

Jonboy what do you think?

Mandø[edit]

  • Delete - With only 62 inhabitants I doubt one can sleep there --Nick 00:21, 24 January 2008 (EST)
So why not just redirect it? ~ 203.144.143.4 00:33, 24 January 2008 (EST)
Because it was early in the morning and I was still on my first coffee and not thinking straight yet. Of course a redirect is better solution than a redirect here --Nick 02:08, 24 January 2008 (EST)
 :-)
Suggest per Mando, which I've just created. ~ 203.144.143.4 02:10, 24 January 2008 (EST)

Alofi Island[edit]

Uninhabited. I assume that means you can't sleep there. It should be covered as a part of Horne Islands. --Wandering 11:28, 22 January 2008 (EST)

So why not just redirect it? ~ 203.144.143.4 12:25, 22 January 2008 (EST)
Keep - now correctly redirected to Wallis and Futuna ~ 203.144.143.6 14:25, 22 January 2008 (EST)
Fine with me. Wasn't sure if there were campgrounds and such on the island. --Wandering 14:44, 22 January 2008 (EST)
If there was one, probably best detailed at Futuna Island as that's undoubtedly the only way in; if something more, it can be un-redirected. ~ 203.144.143.6 15:16, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Outcome: Kept as redirect --Nick 06:24, 29 February 2008 (EST)

SkiWelt[edit]

  • Delete. Seems to be a resort of some sort. Is there a policy on stand-alone resorts that are not a part of a town?--Wandering 18:17, 4 January 2008 (EST)
  • Hmm, this one's tough. According to this, SkiWelt is enclosed by the Wilder Kaiser valley on one side and the Brixental on the other. One ski pass covers the 250km of pistes, over 90 cable cars and lifts and in excess of 70 mountain huts in which to take a break. ... The area includes the villages of Scheffau, Soll, Ellmau, Going and Itter on the Wilder Kasier side and the villages of Brixen, Hopfgarten, Westendorf and Kelchsau on the Brixental side. So is "SkiWelt" just a marketing name for the region, and thus best redirected to the region article...? Jpatokal 22:46, 4 January 2008 (EST)

Keep (but MOS)It does look like a ski region with numerous resorts and 'pretty Tyrolean villages'. I guess it is a marketing name tied to the region but is it across one region or many? I notice a number of resorts with pages listed in Winter sports in Austria so, I guess, resorts are acceptable. In which case, a marketing name for a ski region should be acceptable too, especially if that name is better known than the region name.--Wandering 13:16, 8 January 2008 (EST)
