vfd discussion[edit]

Housesteads is a Roman fort and associated settlement a few kilometres out of Hexham. I believe it is adequately mentioned on the Hexham page, and as an attraction, I feel it is not deserving of an article of its own. Water 14:20, 30 June 2006 (EDT)

  • It's not whether it "deserves" an article, it's whether it meets the criteria for one. Can you sleep there? If so, it's separate enough to have its own article. If not, treating it as a section of Hexham seems right, but would probably best be accomplished via a redirect rather than a deletion, since Housesteads is a place name that crops up in various places. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 15:37, 30 June 2006 (EDT)
    • No; you can't sleep there: it consists of a museum, a shop, a café, some ruins and that's about it. When I said 'deserves', I had in fact read the criteria and concluded that it did not fulfil them: I probably should have made my meaning clearer. I shall create a redirect from both the s-less and correct versions of the name to Hexham, then. 15:50, 30 June 2006 (EDT)
    • The above comment was me: the software logged me out for some reason. Water 15:52, 30 June 2006 (EDT)
  • Redirect to Hexham. -- Ryan 12:33, 2 July 2006 (EDT)
  • Redirect. --Evan 15:09, 9 July 2006 (EDT)
  • Looks like there's a consensus on this one. Any reason not to go ahead and pronounce it redirected and resolved? -- Bill-on-the-Hill 19:11, 9 July 2006 (EDT)
