Bimmah Sinkhole[edit]

  • Delete - Much of the information was taken from Hawiyat Najm Park. And we don't create articles about specific sights. As the thumb rule goes, you cannot sleep in this sinkhole. JamesA >talk 04:26, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
    • Merge and redirect real places. LtPowers 09:28, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
The information was copied word-for-word from the aforementioned article, so there's not really any info to merge. JamesA >talk 10:15, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
OK, then just redirect. Pashley 22:08, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
  • Delete Article was created with copied content. There is no content at the target of the redirect. Restore the status quo, here. --Inas 18:43, 15 June 2012 (EDT)
  • Delete. Agree with Inas. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:13, 4 August 2012 (EDT)
  • Deleted IBAlex 14:18, 26 October 2012 (EDT)


White-Sand Beach of Oman[edit]

  • Delete - About a specific beach/sight, rather than a destination where you can sleep (town, national park, region, etc) JamesA >talk 04:26, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
    • Merge and redirect real places. LtPowers 09:28, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
  • Merge to Northern Oman. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:13, 4 August 2012 (EDT)
  • Merge to Northern Oman. --W. Franke-mailtalk 07:52, 17 September 2012 (EDT)

User talk:Sudeep25[edit]

  • Speedy Delete - Spam link by user who is now blocked. Due to persistent and very serious bugs, I am not able to delete this page. If anyone is able, please do so right away. Thanks. Ikan Kekek 01:29, 3 August 2012 (EDT)
    Deleted. I had to log out, clear all cookies from my browser, and log back in today to get the site working (and appearing) normally, but at least for now things seem to be working as expected. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:48, 3 August 2012 (EDT)

Need_To_Have_A_Motor_Vehicle_Insurance_Coverage_That_Is_Certainly_Less_Expensive?_Here's_How[edit]

User:Yuyodhpuht[edit]

  • Delete. Inappropriate marketing spam AGAIN? W. Frank 16:08, 19 August 2012 (EDT)
    • I did speedy deletes on several above, but did not have tme to block the users. Pashley 22:54, 19 August 2012 (EDT)

Char Dham Yatra[edit]

A five-line "article" whose main purpose seems to be to give an external link. It is conceivable this could be turned into an itinerary or travel topic, but as it stands it is a delete candidate. Pashley 21:12, 20 August 2012 (EDT)

User:Rex Sueciæ[edit]

  • Speedydelete - spam, abuse. Riggwelter 10:20, 23 August 2012 (EDT)
    • Not a speedy; I'm not even sure it is a deletion candidate. I do not read German, so I cannot be certain, but it looks like all it is is someone whose user page contains (so far) only a link to his or her user pag on WP. Pashley 01:17, 27 August 2012 (EDT)
Seems like a spammer though; the same IP did this [1] -- Eiland 05:21, 6 September 2012 (EDT)

Lilac[edit]

  • Delete. Obviously some orphaned stub without content. Nyx 08:00, 26 August 2012 (EDT)
  • Delete I concur; two and a half years without expansion from 5-6 words! --W. Franke-mailtalk 07:50, 17 September 2012 (EDT)


File:Coleman Instant 14- By 10- Foot 8- Person Two Room Tent 1709.jpg[edit]

  • Fairly obvious copyright violation, and even if it weren't it seems useless. JYolkowski 22:28, 13 September 2012 (EDT)
    • Speedied. Pashley 00:32, 14 September 2012 (EDT)

OldSchoolNewBodyReview262216351[edit]

  • Copyright violation? (even if it isn't, it seems inappropriate for our travel guide)-- W. Frank 11:46, 14 September 2012 (EDT)

User:Ulysses8[edit]

  • Seems obvious from the NIL contribution record of Ulysses8 that this user page has been created only to promote a spam hyperlink from our travel guide. --W. Frank 13:25, 14 September 2012 (EDT)

A1GP[edit]

  • The A1GP is discontinued, and the information is of no value for current travellers. /Blist 07:41, 17 September 2012 (EDT)
  • Delete I concur; and the templated warning has exceeded its deadline. --W. Franke-mailtalk 07:46, 17 September 2012 (EDT)
  • Deleted IBAlex 14:08, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

I have now merged the information into Northern Oman and re-directed the page there so this discussion can now be archived. --singaporeAlice 15:17, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

Thank you! IBAlex 16:57, 26 October 2012 (EDT)


London 2012[edit]

Both the London Olympics and Paralympics are now past and this article is of no further use for travellers.

  • Delete --W. Franke-mailtalk 19:29, 8 October 2012 (EDT)
  • Keep - There was similar vfd a while ago and the consensus was to keep event articles like these. sumone10154(talk) 22:18, 8 October 2012 (EDT)
  • Delete Times change and so does consensus. --118dot93dot73dot30 03:50, 17 March 2013 (EDT)
  • Delete These articles belong to Wikipedia, not to Wikitravel. WindowsNT (talk) 07:14, 30 July 2013 (EDT)
  • Keep (until 2030). Whilst the event is over, the article is a useful guide for somebody creating Rio 2016, Tokyo 2020, Wherever 2024. I think that enough people go to watch the Olympics and Paralympics that it is valid to have a guide to getting there.AlasdairW (talk) 16:01, 2 October 2013 (EDT)
  • Keep- I agree with AlasdairW. Thanks! IBAlex (talk) 19:14, 2 October 2013 (EDT)


Hatma City[edit]

Despite persistent questioning of the original author (and sole contributor), I have found no evidence that there is such a conurbation in Indonesia!

(Although there are Hatma's in Turkey and the Lebanon and a Hamra National Park in Sweden )
