VFD discussion[edit]

Sleeper suburb of Helsinki, no attractions and no places to sleep. Not sure where, if anywhere, it can be redirected though... Jpatokal 07:50, 7 November 2006 (EST)

  • Unsure about this one but I'd feel inclined to keep it. Even by just letting travellers know that Kerava is just a sleeper suburb with no places to sleep, the article could be useful to someone - say, people who travel for family reasons or something and have to move around there or whatever. -- Ricardo (Rmx) 20:28, 8 November 2006 (EST)
  • Keep. Seems to me that if there's room for Congress, there's room for this one. Check out Talk:Congress for an airing of the issues, including ways to handle the absence of places to sleep -- remember that the "can-you-sleep-there" criterion is more about the kind of place than about whether it has actual hotels. In this particular case, the difficulty that Jani mentions, about finding a redirect, argues for keeping it. (Just how big is this place?) -- Bill-on-the-Hill 21:12, 8 November 2006 (EST)
    • I took a second look and would now myself vote to keep -- I'd always figured it was a district of something else, but no, it's actually incorporated as a city and has a population of 30,000. There are still almost no sights, but hey, at least they have the Garlic Festival(tm) every August, a festival so well known that I lived ~25 km away for ten years and never heard about it.

Outcome: kept. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 09:43, 21 November 2006 (EST)
