Nordkapp, North Cape and Magerøya[edit]

Delete or Merge. Nordkapp is the name of the municipality in witch North Cape is. Nordkapp is also the norwegian name for North Cape. North Cape is an atraction and as so should not have it's own article in Wikitravel. I think this articles could be merged with Honningsvåg, witch is a small town just south of North Cape. The Magerøya-article might just be deleted, not sure if this is a likely search. ViMy 13:52, 2 March 2009 (EST)

  • Nordkapp is a destination in it's own right, and a pretty popular one too, so i don't think we should merge with Honingsvåg. Never heard the term Magerøya before, but someone obviously has so it can't really hurt just to Merge all of them. --Stefan (sertmann) Talk 13:52, 19 March 2009 (EDT)
  • I know... It's known all over Europe as the northenmost point of the continent. Shuld we merge all into North Cape? Another thing you can't sleep at North Cape... But in Honningsvåg or some of the vilages south of the cape. But of course North Cape is the name everyone know. ViMy 14:18, 2 March 2009 (EST)
  • Merge and redirect all to Nordkapp, which is (I think) the most common name. "North Cape" is ambiguous, but there's only one Nordkapp. Jpatokal 23:30, 2 March 2009 (EST)
  • Keep Separate - To me it sounds like Nordkapp is a destination on the island of Magerøya and you could merge those two if there was on other places on the island. However, North Cape is a different case entirely as it is the name of a tourist destination/attraction in Northland, on the North Island of New Zealand - which means that North Cape should be a disambiguation page. - Huttite 02:39, 3 March 2009 (EST)
    • AFAIK there's nothing at all on Magerøya aside from Nordkapp. Jpatokal 02:55, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
  • Nordkapp is a destination on Magerøya. But you can't sleep there but in Honningsvåg. The Island is not so big. So I think everything could be keept in one article. Should North Cape be a disambig-page? ViMy 07:11, 7 March 2009 (EST)
hmmmm, this one is tricky, my take on this would be to redirect Magerøya as a region to Nordkapp, as that is the more likely search term, and then make Honningvåg and Nordkapp destinations in Finnmark rather than on Magerøya. --Stefan (sertmann) Talk 13:52, 19 March 2009 (EDT)
Sounds OK to me. But I'm not sure if we should have two seperate articles for Nordkapp and Honningsvåg. ViMy 10:36, 22 March 2009 (EDT)
Hmm you might be right, so... which one to choose? since you're the Norwegian, I'm willing to take your advice :) --Stefan (sertmann) Talk 10:27, 3 May 2009 (EDT)
Technicaly Honningsvåg is the town, and Nordkapp an atraction outside of the town. But Nordkapp is a internationaly recognized destination, so I think we should choose this. The reason why I'm sceptical to two articles, is that I think we could got one describing the atraction and another one describing where to sleep.
I'd say keep Magerøya, include the Nordkapp and Honningsvåg information in that article and make both of those redirects to it. It seems to me the island, rather than the town, is the destination.
North Cape is a separate problem, probably needs to be a disambig page. Pashley 05:43, 7 May 2009 (EDT)
Or keep Nordkapp if that's the best-known name, make Magerøya and Honningsvåg redirect there. But let's do something. This vfd has been around for months; it needs to be closed. Pashley 05:30, 8 August 2009 (EDT)
Looks to me like that's a consensus. However, I don't know the area & am not gong to do the work. Volunteers? Pashley 22:10, 7 September 2009 (EDT)
  • Outcome: Magerøya and Honningsvåg Redirected to Nordkapp. North Cape made to disambiguation page. ViMy 17:57, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
