VFD discussion[edit]


  • Delete. Too fine grained. Hahnenklee is a very small town in the Harz Mountains in Germany. It is not a major tourist destination at all. Currently the article promotes only a small family pension. It is practically spam. 14:48, 11 November 2007 (EST)
  • Keep, at least for now. "Too fine grained ... not a major tourist destination at all" is not a reason to delete an article, if the place meets the you-can-sleep-there test, and it appears that this one does. Instead, clean it up and make it useful, or redirect it to something more inclusive. Might this place be part of an Alpine skiing complex? If so, is there a sensible "umbrella" article to include it under? -- Bill-on-the-Hill 18:25, 14 November 2007 (EST)
  • I looked it up again, it is not even a town. It is a small hamlet with 1200 inhabitants that is part of Goslar, a bigger town in the Harz region. The correct name is Goslar-Hahnenklee-Bockswiese. As in most of the small hamlets in the Harz mountains it is a tourist destination in the sense that it offers places to sleep for tourists visiting the Harz. If you want to keep the info it should be moved to the Goslar page. I fact, the German version of the wikitravel Goslar page lists the church in Hahnenklee as a Goslar tourist attraction. 16:01, 26 November 2007 (EST)
    • OK, then redirect to Goslar. One of the challenges in Wikitravel is that the terms "town," "village," "hamlet," etc., vary in meaning from place to place, making a consistent treatment of very small towns difficult. But I feel strongly that as long as someone may come here looking for info on Hahnenklee, the article name should be kept as a redirect, at the minimum. We do the same for far smaller towns than this one. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 09:40, 3 December 2007 (EST)
