I put the photo gallery back in, as there is no mention of galleries being addressed in the Manual of style, nor policy for their removal. Early conversations on this subject encouraged the use of galleries so they would load the pictures last. There also is not excessive use of photos in this article and the photos add much to the information a visitor may want. 2old 09:59, 6 January 2010 (EST)
Lessons for Mexican national parks
(Moved from Talk:United States National Parks)
The article for Dzibilchaltún is presently up for Wikitravel:Votes for deletion, the basic bone of contention being whether the Mexican Parque Nacional de Dzibilchaltún qualifies as a destination in terms of size, significance, stand-aloneness, and so on. Several other Mexican parks are similarly nominated. In my opinion it's wonderful to see the Mexican national park system get some articles, and it could probably use an overall article comparable to the US one to set context. More immediately, however, some insights are needed to shape the VFD. Unfortunately, the erratic way "minor" US parks and (particularly) monuments are handled, with some getting articles and some not, serves mainly to obfuscate, rather than clarify, the situation with Mexican parks.
Please join the discussion regarding individual articles on the VFD, but I've routed the overall discussion here for the time being, since we don't have a Mexican-parks article yet. We could take advantage of this to propose a Mexican-parks article with clearer guidelines on the "what is an article?" question than we've been able to make for the US parks. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 09:30, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
