Hi, I'm not entirely sure about the recent edit to this page in order to make it comply with the Manual of Style, and to label it a stub. Algeciras is not a tiny town, but from a travellers perspective it has very little to hold your interest. 99 percent of people to the city are using it as a gateway to Morocco, and nothing else. The vast majority of tourists come in by bus or train, and then leave on the next (hourly) ferry out to Africa. For this reason the areas of importance are the bus station, the train station and the main coastal road where you can buy ferry tickets and walk to the ferry terminal.
Even the most detailed guidebooks on Anadlucia don't give Algeciras more than 3/4 of a page.
So when I copied and pasted the 'small town' article template to start the page, I combined the Eat, Drink and Sleep sections into one heading (funnily enough called: Eat, Drink and Sleep). This is because all the accommodation, food and drinking options used by travellers are on the one road, Avenidos de la Marina, and they are all much the muchness in terms of quality and price. Most travellers would not even use this info because they rarely stop long enough to eat, sleep or go out in Algeciras.
So I think that as it stands now (well, perhaps with addition of a map, but I'll wait for the templates to be drawn up for those...) the page has enough information to help 99 percent of people who arrive there and need to get to Africa. So for that reason I don't think it should really be called a 'stub'. It'd be nice to have one or two accommodation recommendations, but very few users will actually want them, and even then there is plenty to choose from within a small area.
Assuming that the page isn't really a stub, then this raises the question: does Wikitravel want to have seperate headings for Eat, Drink and Sleep even when each section only has one sentence or two? I combined them into the one heading because I thought that Wikitravel's goal was to have a print-friendly format, and combining those three headings into one for small towns made sense. This is the same approach taken by the major guidebook publishers in similar circumstances.
Perhaps in these situations, sections could be combined, and if a lot of information is added down the road, then they could be split up again.
