Does Dallam County need an article?[edit]

This article was initially redirected to High Plains with the justification that policy was at Wikitravel_talk:Geographical_hierarchy#Do_we_really_want_counties_as_destinations.3F. While that is a discussion about the situation, the Policy does not appear to be settled or articulated on Wikitravel:Geographical_hierarchy#Dividing geographical units. I have also copied the following discussion from Wikitravel:Votes for deletion, because I do not believe there was any intention to delete the article, only a need to justify its redirection. - Huttite 19:57, 12 December 2009 (EST)

Dallam County[edit]

Texas has well over 300 counties, many of them with only a couple of tiny towns, and so counties are not an organizational structure that we use for the state. This county article, in particular, is unlikely to ever contain anything more than Dalhart, and there really isn't anything else to mention there.

  • Keep as the destination can be a regional article for Dalhart. If it is only going to contain Dalhart, the redirect it there, not to High Plains. Also, the discussion on whether we should have US counties as articles, is only a discussion, it does not appear to have been turned into policy. - Huttite 18:41, 12 December 2009 (EST)

In my opinion, individual county articles should redirect to the county seat article unless there is content about the county attractions that does not comfortably fit within just one article about a single destinations in the county. Thus a separate county article could be justified if several county destination articles each contain references to a common set of county attractions.

In the case of Dallam County, there is not enough content (yet) to justify a separate article, so redirect to the county seat of Dalhart. - Huttite 19:57, 12 December 2009 (EST)
