VFD Discussion[edit]

  • DELETE. Event was finished two years ago. The official tournament website is no longer active. Bill in STL 21:32, 3 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Hmm. There's a few more of these around (eg. Expo 2005). Instead of deleting them outright, I'd prefer to maybe tag them with "archive" and protect them...? If nothing else, they're useful templates for future events. Jpatokal 23:14, 3 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep, for posterity if nothing else. I'm okay with tagging them as historical. LtPowers 08:00, 4 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Delete I admit there is some nostalgia with those but the most of the article deals with ticket prices, etc. The information on general sights and transportation is still available in the regular regional articles. I don't see any use for a traveler nowadays?! --Sebindi 10:47, 6 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep. I like Jani's idea of keeping these around with an "archive" tag, similar to what we do with the Wikitravel:Joke articles. They may be useful as templates, and it seems a shame to throw away articles that people put a lot of work into. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:35, 6 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep per Jani. --Peter Talk 15:47, 6 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Keep but label them. I started this one. My reason to delete was that old event articles which appear to be current makes the site look outdated. The list of article with old dates in name include: Expo 2005, Euro 2008, Rugby World Cup 2007, Vancouver 2010, World Cup 2006, World Cup 2010. We should do the same thing with all of them, whatever the decision. The 2008 Olympics has already been merged to Beijing. The Expo 2005 has a nice disclaimer box showing we really know it is not a future event, even if the text says "event will open ..." Adding a similar box to all these would mark them as historic articles if people run into them. Or a generic template would make them easy to maintain. Future articles for same treatment include Expo 2010 (after Oct 31), London 2012 in a couple of years.Bill in STL 21:39, 6 August 2010 (EDT)
Please see Wikitravel_talk:Template_index#Proposed "Completed events" template proposal for template to handle this. --Bill in STL 04:58, 24 August 2010 (EDT)

Result: Kept. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:46, 18 September 2010 (EDT)
