Revision as of 21:02, 13 December 2010


This page contains lists of articles and images which are recommended for deletion. Any Wikitraveller can recommend an article or image for deletion, and any Wikitraveller can comment on the deletion nomination. Articles and images are presumed guilty until proven innocent. After fourteen (14) days of discussion, if a consensus is reached to retain an article, it won't be deleted. Otherwise it will be deleted by an administrator. Please read the Nominating and Commenting sections prior to nominating articles/images or commenting on nominations.

Nominating

The basic format for a deletion nomination is the following:

===[[Chicken]]===
* Delete.  Not a valid travel article topic. ~~~~

Please follow these steps when nominating an article or image for deletion:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion. If you are unsure, bring up the issue on the talk page.
  2. For the article or image being proposed for deletion, add a {{vfd}} tag so that people viewing the article will know that it is proposed for deletion. The {{vfd}} tag must be the very first thing in the article, right at the very top, before everything else.
  3. Add a link to the article or image at the end of the list below, along with the reason why it is being listed for deletion. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~"). List one article or image per entry.
  4. If you're nominating an image for deletion, make sure it's actually located on the English Wikitravel... many images are located on Wikitravel Shared, in which case they should be nominated for deletion over there instead.

Commenting

All Wikitravellers are asked to state their opinion about articles and images listed for deletion. The format for comments is:

===[[Chicken]]===
* '''Delete'''.  Not a valid travel article topic. TravelNut 25:25, 31 Feb 2525 (EDT)
* '''Keep'''.  There is a town in [[Alaska]] called Chicken. ~~~~

When leaving comments:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion.
  2. You may vote to delete, keep, or redirect the article. If your opinion is that the article should be kept or redirected, please state why. If you are in favor of redirection, you may suggest where it should be redirected to. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~").

Deleting, or not

After fourteen (14) days of discussion, there will probably be consensus one way or the other. If the consensus is to keep, redirect or merge, then any Wikitraveller can do it. If you are redirecting, please remember to check for broken redirects or double redirects as a result of your move. Remove any VFD notices from that page, and archive the deletion discussion as described in the next section.

If the result is delete, then only an administrator can delete. Check if any article links to the image or article in question. After removing those links, delete the image or article. However, if the image is being deleted because it has been moved to the shared repository with the same name, do not remove links to the images, as the links will be automatically be pointed to the shared repository.

Archiving

After you keep/redirect/merge/delete the article, move the deletion discussion to the Archives page for the appropriate month. The root Archives page has a directory. Note that it's the month in which the action was taken, rather than when the nomination was first posted, that should be used for the archived discussion; that way, recourse to the deletion log can lead subsequent readers right to the discussion (at least for the pages that were deleted).

If the nominated article was not deleted, then place another (identical duplicate) copy of the deletion discussion on the talk page of the article being kept or redirected.

Looks like a nice map, but I'm afraid it's copyrighted material. --globe-trotter 21:52, 24 November 2010 (EST)

  • It's on shared, not here. LtPowers 09:30, 25 November 2010 (EST)


Picture Violations

These are not on Shared:

Having a border is no reason to delete. But TinEye found a match on the (defunct) horse safari web site, so it likely isn't freely licensed. LtPowers 16:52, 1 December 2010 (EST)
Borders have been used before as reasons to delete and I've never seen anyone defend a bordered image. At their best, they look too commercial, and at their worst, they ruin the picture. They always look inappropriate for Wikitravel, in my opinion. ChubbyWimbus 01:01, 2 December 2010 (EST)
  • Delete. All three appear to be promotional in nature, which is typically reason for deletion - the first image was uploaded by a user apparently trying to promote a specific resort, and the other two are obvious. With respect to the border, in the past borders have been used as a rationale to delete otherwise questionable images since it's not standard Wikitravel style, particularly when the original uploader is not around to provide a non-bordered image. One further point - please list articles & images separately on this page in the future. As this discussion shows, because one nomination was made for three separate images we are now forced to have three separate discussions in the same thread. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:13, 2 December 2010 (EST)
Borders and text on the images can be removed quite easily by cropping the edges. I can do this if the images are worth keeping. They dont seem to have a copyleft listed on the file description page, or have explicitly been uploaded without one. • • • Peter (Southwood) Talk 05:11, 2 December 2010 (EST)
Just to clarify, past VFDs have cited borders as a contributing reason to delete questionable images. We often have images from users where the source isn't entirely clear, the purpose of the image isn't clear, etc, and in those cases a border has been cited as a contributing factor towards deletion of the image. In this case, the fact that the image in question appears to have been uploaded for promotional purposes AND has a border (and is thus not standard Wikitravel style) are both reasons to consider deletion. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:19, 2 December 2010 (EST)

Yes, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear; the border can be removed with ease, which is why there's no reason to delete it just because it has a border. LtPowers 08:02, 2 December 2010 (EST)

Sorry for uploading all of them together! I did it because they are all from the same user, so I thought discussion would revolve around them as a group, as well. If they are violations from a website, then perhaps the rest of this users images should also be deleted. I think there were only a few more. ChubbyWimbus 18:59, 2 December 2010 (EST)

Template:Citation needed

  • Speedy delete. I don't see any need for such a template as we don't cite sources or provide footnotes. I'm listing it here just to give the user a day or two's notice. -- Sapphire(Talk) • 19:36, 2 December 2010 (EST)
  • Delete. I'll look into updating the help files to explain this. --inas 21:40, 2 December 2010 (EST)
Wikitravel:External links mentions not to use footnotes, but maybe we should expand upon it. -- Sapphire(Talk) • 07:39, 3 December 2010 (EST)
  • Delete Questionable information should either be removed outright or taken to the Talk page for discussion. If we absolutely need to know a source then the Talk page is where the hard evidence can be given. ChubbyWimbus 15:02, 3 December 2010 (EST)
  • Delete vfd not the place to argue policy on sources. Current policy is that they are not required, therefore this template is redundant. --inas 00:18, 10 December 2010 (EST)
I wasn't meaning to argue policy. Users have requested such proof on the talk page before. It's current practice and sometimes the only fair way to settle fact disputes. ChubbyWimbus 04:08, 10 December 2010 (EST)
Agreed. --inas 04:32, 11 December 2010 (EST)


Azerbaijan in 5 Days

  • Delete Can someone else just confirm that these articles are just to make you do a tour of specific cafes/restaurants, and aren't really itineraries at all? --inas 19:13, 9 December 2010 (EST)
  • Keep. Created by a reasonably well-established Wikitraveller, who has done plenty of good work in good faith on articles around the globe, and it's beyond the outline threshold. --Peter Talk 09:42, 12 December 2010 (EST)
Okay. --inas 17:19, 12 December 2010 (EST)
  • Keep - I do find it odd that your first meal in Azerbaijan is actually Lebanese and that the first two nights' dinners are at the same place (Also wonder why you automatically get sent to Georgia at the end of your trip), but there seems enough to sketch out each day and be potentially useful. Texugo 22:18, 12 December 2010 (EST)
  • Keep also. Texugo, Georgia might actually be a good place to send a traveler to end a stay in Azerbaijan. If I read this correctly, there are over 70 countries, whose citizens do not need a visa to enter or stay in Georgia for up to a year. According to our Caucasus#Border_Crossing article, the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia are closed for obvious reasons and I imagine it would be difficult and dangerous for travelers to head into Iran (Tehran has, after all, arrested Americans hikers in Iraq for "entering" Iran illegally and being spies). But, I refer this to others with more experience than I in the Caucasus. Peter, do you have any insight? -- Sapphire(Talk) • 15:58, 13 December 2010 (EST)
