Siem Reap Tours with English speaking driver

  • Delete. This is either an advertisement or a first-person account, neither of which meet the Wikitravel:What is an article criteria. I didn't speedy-delete it only because if it's a first person account then hopefully the contributor will see this and contribute to Siem Reap instead (but please read our Tour policy first). -- Ryan • (talk) • 02:47, 1 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete! My guess is it is an ad. IP address it was posted from is in Cambodia, which is odd for a traveller reporting now on a 2007 trip. Pashley 04:45, 1 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Also, it appears to be a copyvio. Identical text at [1]. Pashley 04:51, 1 August 2010 (EDT)
    • Based on Pashley's info and the fact that this user hasn't returned I'd be fine with a speedy delete, unless anyone objects. -- Ryan • (talk) • 09:17, 2 August 2010 (EDT)
      • Looks like a speedy to me. Pashley 09:44, 2 August 2010 (EDT)

Result: Speedy Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 09:55, 2 August 2010 (EDT)

  • Delete. Unused, poor quality image of the back-end of a Quantas jet. If anyone feels that this should be kept please indicate what article to incorporate it into, although I'd argue strongly that it's not of high enough quality to use in any of our guides. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:38, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:56, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Image:076.jpg

  • Delete. Unused image of benches in the Sydney airport terminal. This is unused, and it's non-descript enough that adding it to the Sydney article wouldn't improve the article in any possible way. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:38, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:56, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Image:08072007282.jpg

  • Delete. Unused and very blurry image of a rock on Tioman island. The image is of too poor quality to make it worthwhile to add it to that article. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:38, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:56, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Image:086.jpg

  • Delete. Blurry, unused thumbnail of a cafe(?). No indication of what article this could be added to, but the small size and poor quality make this a candidate for deletion rather than anything to add to an article. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:38, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:56, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:56, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Image:15042007088.jpg

  • Delete. Unused image of a guy holding a soda. No model release, and unless someone wants to start a "How to hold a soda while traveling" article then this also has no value for travel. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:57, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:56, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Voyageurs national park

  • Delete. This broken redirect page points to a non-existant page. The only difference in name is capitalization. There are no links to this redirect page. Bill in STL 18:38, 2 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep. While we (surprisingly) don't yet seem to have an article for Voyageurs National Park, that is a valid destination so a redirect would be the preferred solution. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:46, 2 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Withdrawn. Page added for the park so this redirect now points to a real page. Bill in STL 23:51, 2 August 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:32, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Travel Guide Agra

  • Delete - The useful information has been merged to the Agra article. This article title doesn't meet the guidelines so a redirect is not useful. --Sebindi 10:47, 6 August 2010 (EDT)

Speedy deleted. --Peter Talk 16:26, 8 August 2010 (EDT)

Result: Speedy Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:32, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Template:Coordinates

  • Delete. Unused template that duplicates the functionality of Template:Geo. -- Ryan • (talk) • 23:23, 3 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Not sure. The functionality is not duplicate at all; Template:Geo displays nothing on the screen and only creates RDF code. Template:Coordinates displays a box within the article that shows the coords and a link to Google Earth. Now, granted, we have no provision in our guidelines for such a feature, but someone at some point thought it might be a good idea. I think I might prefer we discuss whether or not we should make coordinate display more prominent; if we do, this template might be useful. (If we don't, then I would suggest redirecting this to Template:Geo as a useful alias, rather than deleting it.) LtPowers 08:04, 4 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Redirect - I don't think anybody (maybe except a few experts) have any use directly viewing the coordinates in an article. It will only clutter the guide. The information is great to use for other (yet to be developed?) features but the display of the numbers seems useless. Therefore redirect to the RDF-Template Template:Geo and lose this info box. --Sebindi 11:14, 6 August 2010 (EDT)

Result: Redirected. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:37, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Has this article been lockes somehow? I am unable to edit it. -- Peter (Southwood) Talk 09:07, 13 June 2010 (EDT)
No, there's nothing in the protection log. Do you get an error message of some sort? LtPowers 11:10, 13 June 2010 (EDT)
  • Weak keep. If the user who created this guide was not plastering his/her company URL all across our site I think this would be a clear keep - much of the information is pretty good - but the article should not be used as a promotional tool for any particular company. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:39, 13 June 2010 (EDT)
  • Merge into Ko Lanta, Ko Phi Phi, Ko Ngai, etc. --globe-trotter 05:01, 14 June 2010 (EDT)
