vfd discussion[edit]

  • Delete. Spelling error; "Tlatelolco" is correct, and the obvious Mexico City/Tlatelolco page exists with the same (minimal) content as this one. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 12:59, 4 March 2006 (EST)
  • We could rename to Tlalelolco and redirect to Mexico City/Tlalelolco for all of us who have problems with spelling. -- Tom Holland (xltel) 10:32, 6 March 2006 (EST)
  • Redirect. -- Ryan 18:28, 7 March 2006 (EST)
    • Is it really desirable to redirect spelling errors like this rather than just getting rid of them? This one looks like a pure typo that could be dispensed with without inconveniencing anyone. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 22:59, 17 March 2006 (EST)
      • The current policy says "If the name of the article is wrong (for example, if there's a spelling error, or if it doesn't conform to our article naming conventions), try to rename the page instead of copying all its contents to a new page and then deleting it." Huttite has made a pretty strong case that redirects don't hurt, and I've come to agree as long as people aren't proactively trying to create redirects for things like spelling errors. -- Ryan 04:19, 19 March 2006 (EST)
        • Understood, but in this case (and the one below), the "new page" already exists. I presume that the deletion policy is there to spare editors unnecessary work (i.e., transferring content manually from page to page) and thereby encourage the tidying-up of things like this. That is sound policy, but I don't think the policy is intended to address cases where somebody has already done the work to populate a corrected page. But whatever. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 18:17, 19 March 2006 (EST)
