Thanks for creating Judean Desert, but this overlaps with the existing regions of Israel, which is a no-no. Our existing Dead Sea, West Bank and Negev articles already cover the area. Jpatokal 22:22, 15 December 2008 (EST)
Sorry, but you are wrong about this subject. please see my response is the proper page. Govrin 09:53, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Hi Govrin, and welcome to Wikitravel. Can I just ask that you refrain from removing the vfd tag from Judean Desert. There is a process that has now started under Wikitravel Policy. The nomination should be discussed on the votes for deletion page and only once a consensus is reached after at least 14 days will a final decision be taken. This may be the page being deleted, or being kept. Only then should the vfd tag be removed. Thanks. Nrms 10:00, 16 December 2008 (EST)
thank you, but i'm not new here at all. as for the votes, as i said, this is not a disagreement, his reason is a mistake made by lack of knowledge in the subject we are talking about, the regions in Israel. long story short, the proposal was made because he thought this region overlaps other regions... I explained to him he is wrong, no consensus needed, you can simply look into the geography of israel in any other site, including wikipedia. after all, if there will be a consensus that Israel is in north america, it won't make it right. Its simply a geographical fact. If it was a disagreemet that demands a consensus, i would have agreed with you.
You see what I mean?
