Rota d'imagna[edit]

Yes, this place merits an article. But the info is a direct lift from Wikipedia, probably by the hotel, which also plugs itself in Wikipedia. Shep 14:04, 2 September 2010 (EDT)

I've removed the plug from the Wikipedia article, although I left most of what the contributor wrote. Given the timestamps, it's reasonable to assume the author made the edits on both wikis, so only the lead section of our article is a copyright violation (because of lack of attribution). We could replace that lead with a Wikitravel-style lead and template and be okay copyright-wise. LtPowers 17:01, 2 September 2010 (EDT)
It is a real place that "merits an article", so keep. It needs to be either cleaned up or blanked, though. Pashley 20:03, 11 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Kept. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:56, 3 October 2010 (EDT)

Indie London[edit]

No substantial edits in two years, points to a non-existent district article, would be easy to merge with London, which was suggested on its talk page at the time.

Result: Merge tag added for London. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:09, 3 October 2010 (EDT)

SeaDream Yacht Club[edit]

  • Delete. It seems to be a commercial yacht enterprise. --globe-trotter 12:53, 2 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep. This is linked to the section called Cruise Lines and is a page mirrored after the Carnival Conquest page which has not been taken down. Brickell 13:40, 2 September 2010 (EDT) adrienne
  • Delete immediately. This is just a commercial plug. If based on Carnival Conquest then that page should also be deleted. Shep 14:43, 2 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete Commercial page and i added Carnival Conquest for deletion too. jan 15:25, 2 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Redirect to Cruise ships. In order to address Peter's concerns without allowing spammy adverts I'm proposing that any new articles on cruise ships be redirected until consensus is reached on how to handle cruise ships in general. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:54, 2 September 2010 (EDT)

Keep. All information is factual-not "touting". The information on cruising is relevant to travelers wishing to "travel by sea". There is no flowery language used. The article gives specifics about the the fleet of 2 cruise ships and links to many destinations within Wikitravel. There are other cruise ships/ cruise lines with pages on Wikitravel-as long as they stick to the facts of what traveling aboard their vessel is about - it is clearly relevant to traveling in general. A photo was added to enhance the page alsoBrickell 16:58, 2 September 2010 (EDT) adrienne

  • This page has been redirected to: "SeaDream I & II". The new page title includes an "&", which appears to make the page unsearchable. It can still be reached through the redirect from "SeaDream Yacht Club", but that's about it. --Bill in STL 01:51, 3 September 2010 (EDT)
    • Fixed. -- Ryan • (talk) • 02:16, 3 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected to Cruise ships per Wikitravel talk:What is an article?#Proposed Moratorium. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:06, 7 October 2010 (EDT)

Carnival_Conquest[edit]

  • Delete Commercial article of no value for travelers. jan 15:24, 2 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep (for now). There is still no consensus on how to handle cruise-related articles. The discussion is ongoing at Wikitravel talk:What is an article?#Cruise ships. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:44, 15 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected to Cruise ships per Wikitravel talk:What is an article?#Proposed Moratorium. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:06, 7 October 2010 (EDT)

Image:Maracanã.jpg[edit]

The provenance of the image on Commons is not at all clear, and there seems to be a thumbnailing issue (probably due to the diacritic in the filename). It was in use on our Rio de Janeiro page, but I've replaced it with a much better daytime shot of the same part of the stadium. LtPowers 22:05, 20 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:10, 7 October 2010 (EDT)

List of countries by Safety Level[edit]

Unmanageable, subjective, with no clear basis, standard, or rubric, plus it's a Wikipedia-style list to boot. The discussion page already looks like a vfd discussion.

  • Delete - Texugo 10:18, 16 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep - It is manageable, the basis is clear, and it is not more or less subjective than any other "stay safe" entry. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 94.66.217.42 (talkcontribs)
  • Give it some rope - It may or may not turn out to be something useful. I have my doubts, but the main contributor may have the ability to change it to something the rest of us can see as potentially usable, so I would suggest let it develop for a few more weeks. Peter (Southwood) Talk 16:46, 17 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete I think it definitely IS more subjective than the "Stay Safe" sections, which give room for complexity. The rubric doesn't even make sense. What does "War Zone" status for health mean? A health rating of 8 means you need an escort?? What's a level 3 "stupid thing" in the homosexuality or religion category? What sort of "something bad" is happening in Peru? Is Brazil really so dangerous that it should be avoided at all cost? The numbers/ratings don't make any sense! You can't trust a single thing in the article, because everything needs clarified further, which requires users to click on the country and go to the "stay safe" section. In my opinion, a watered down "What does it mean?" guide to important topics/issues can do nothing but mislead travelers.ChubbyWimbus 01:35, 18 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete. I largely agree with ChubbyWimbus and the discussion on its talk page, with the added problem that assigning a single decimal value to an entire nation is foolish. We can and should mention specific local or regional safety concerns in appropriate detail in the appropriate articles, but assigning a single "crime" value to the entirety of Brazil is as absurd as a continent-wide weather forecast. There's been no evidence that the original contributor can turn it into something useful, only adding more vague and disputable numbers. — D. Guillaime 17:32, 18 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete. I am all for quantifying abstract, subjective notions, and hate to discourage new contributors, but the problem is as CW and Mr Guillaime identify—a single value for an entire and diverse country is neither very meaningful nor helpful for a traveler. --Peter Talk 18:58, 22 September 2010 (EDT)
  • I don't know. It's pretty handy to have a one-stop reference for whether I should be wary of religious strife at the North Pole, and just what exactly is the current state of gay rights in Space. Gorilla Jones 19:48, 22 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete. I agree that in its current form this article is doomed. If the original author is open to some suggestions, an article such as "Worldwide safety concerns" that is sub-divided by specific issues might be of use. For example: military threats (list war zones & areas with active militias or terrorism danger), disease threats (list areas where specific diseases are a concern), crime threats (list of areas with higher-than-average incidence of violent crime), etc. An all-in-one list that simply provides a single number without any description is not meaningful, however. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:58, 22 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:13, 7 October 2010 (EDT)

St. Andrew's[edit]

There are three pages. St. Andrew's, St. Andrews, and St Andrews. The first two are for the same Canadian city. The last is for the home of golf in Scotland.

  • Merge, rename, and redirect. The home of golf is vastly better known, so it should keep the name. The two Canadian pages should be merged and renamed St Andrews (New Bruswick). I created a disambig page pointing to the current names. --Bill in STL 19:10, 21 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:26, 7 October 2010 (EDT)

Jeffreys Bay and St Francis[edit]

Result: Redirected to Jeffreys Bay. There were a number of links to this page from talk pages, so I've redirected to avoid breaking them. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:34, 7 October 2010 (EDT)

Ruaha National Park.[edit]

There are two pages, Ruaha National Park. and Ruaha National Park. The one with the period in the name is the better page but not named well.

  • Merge and delete. There is no need to redirect a pagename ending in period. --Bill in STL 18:54, 21 September 2010 (EDT)
    • Yes, there is; to maintain the attribution history of the content. LtPowers 13:59, 22 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Ruaha National Park deleted and Ruaha National Park. merged into it.. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:44, 7 October 2010 (EDT)

Saint Barthélemy[edit]

Result: Merge tag added for Saint-Barthelemy. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:57, 9 October 2010 (EDT)

Recaș[edit]

  • Merge and redirect. Recaș and Recaş appear to be the same city in Romania. --Bill in STL 17:45, 24 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected to Recaş. There was no content that needed merging. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:57, 9 October 2010 (EDT)

Image:DCP 1498.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned thumbnail image. If it was larger it might make sense to incorporate it into an article, but image quality for a thumbnail is low, and thumbnails are often red-flags as potential copyvios so I think it's best to just delete. If anyone wants to keep this please be sure to incorporate it into an article. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:09, 28 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:28, 13 October 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected. There was no content to merge. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:44, 15 October 2010 (EDT)

Kudowa-Zdròj[edit]

  • Delete and redirect. There are two pages which appear to be for the same town: Kudowa-Zdrój and Kudowa-Zdròj. Wikiperdia indicates that Kudowa-Zdrój is correct. --Bill in STL 04:46, 26 September 2010 (EDT)
  • I presume you meant merge and redirect, since that seems to be exactly the case. – Vidimian 04:50, 26 September 2010 (EDT)
Thanks. --Bill in STL 05:19, 26 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Merge tag added. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:22, 23 October 2010 (EDT)

L'Acquila (province)[edit]

  • Delete and redirect. This appears to be a page for L'Aquila (province). There is no unique information on this page to merge into the correctly-named article. --Bill in STL 05:19, 26 September 2010 (EDT)
Yes. Speedy delete please.Shep 09:44, 26 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Just redirect. Policy is to redirect plausible spelling errors. Pashley 06:11, 27 September 2010 (EDT)
    • L'Acquila is a plausible spelling error; is the same true for L'Acquila (province)? LtPowers 11:21, 27 September 2010 (EDT)
      • Either way, it refers to a real geographic location, and those should always be redirected. --Peter Talk 19:06, 27 September 2010 (EDT)
        • But that's just a rule of thumb. Is it plausible to think someone is going to type the "(province)" disambiguator? LtPowers 10:41, 28 September 2010 (EDT)
          • No, but that's neither the issue nor the reasoning behind the policy. Redirects are cheaper than deletions, as they don't need to go through this process. The default option is redirect. --Peter Talk 16:46, 28 September 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:32, 23 October 2010 (EDT)
