VFD Discussion

A cruise ship and a cruise line respectively.--Burmesedays 05:47, 11 April 2010 (EDT)

  • Obviously valuable information. It needs to be merged somewhere but where would you propose putting it? We never came to a clear consensus last time we discussed cruise lines. LtPowers 08:39, 11 April 2010 (EDT)
The same user has made edits here inserting names of cruise lines, I guess with the intention of starting an article for each. I would err on the of caution as I can see this becoming a slippery slope. Airline articles likewise - I am not quite sure why we have them. With articles about Cruise lines and Airlines, what next? Hotel groups? Bus companies? Tour agencies? It feels very slippery indeed.--Burmesedays 09:24, 11 April 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete. I am definitely in agreement with Burmesedays here, this is a very slippery slope. And I really see no good information in either of these articles, especially an article about a cruise ship. I think we should take a very hard line here; the Cruise ships article does a good job covering the general topic, and we should leave it at that - leave the specific cruise line/ship info to other sources, as that info is going to be 1) too much, 2) too unmaintainable, and 3) too undefined (as in, where exactly do we draw the line?) for Wikitravel.

It's probably best that we revisit Wikitravel_talk:What_is_an_article#Cruise_ships before coming to decisions on these. --Peter Talk 20:16, 11 April 2010 (EDT)

I have re-opened that discussion.--Burmesedays 22:10, 11 April 2010 (EDT)

The issues around cruise ship articles still aren't resolved, leaving these two nominations in a somewhat ambiguous state. The discussion on Wikitravel talk:What is an article#Round 2 seemed to be moving in a direction that would lead to creating broader articles with redirects for smaller topics like these, so would anyone be opposed to treating these two articles as "keep" and then converting them to redirects if/when that discussion reaches some consensus? -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:00, 31 May 2010 (EDT)

Result: Kept. Policy discussions on cruise lines are ongoing. -- Ryan • (talk) • 00:20, 3 June 2010 (EDT)
