Not an article, with a page name that has little or no prospect of being turned into an article or being redirected to an article. While it may contain information, that information does not meet Wikitravel's goals. A page of graffiti with a nonsense title would have this status.
Has at least the normal introductory paragraph (for a place this can be as short as a single sentence describing where it is located) and a template outline laid out for the article. Some of the sections of the template may have content, but not all of them. You should know where the destination is but the article does not have enough information to get you to the destination and keep you alive.
Has at least a Get In section and one Eat and Sleep listing each with contact information. An adventurous person could use the article without recourse to other information sources to get to the destination, eat, and sleep. They would probably be able to find at least the most prominent attraction at the destination.
The article will be helpful for the average traveler; in addition, it gives you different choices for accommodation and eating out, and information on attractions and things to do for at least a few days at the destination (if possible). Listings and layout closely match the manual of style. There will be multiple ways to get in, some suggestions for moving out, and information on getting around. At least a few things are missing to make this a star article.
The article is a real guide; in addition, it has a tourist-style map showing how to get around the destination, with major attractions, restaurants, etc. that match the listings in the guide. Layout and listing formats either match the manual of style exactly or are the exception that proves the rule. Prose is not only near-perfect grammatically but also tight, effective, and enjoyable. At least one good-quality photo accompanies the article; preferably 2-3 showing famous or important attractions. Enough variety of content is presented that residents and experienced visitors would have little to point out as absent. Changes to this kind of article more reflect changes in the destination (a museum closes or a hotel price changes) than improvements in the coverage.
