This Sydney rail map was almost certainly ripped off the Cityrail [1] web page. Has a copyright message on it, and on the webpage. No indication that permission was sought. I will remove the image from the page if consensus to delete --Inas 21:22, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

March 2008[edit]

Mountain Ranges of Poland[edit]

All are articles for mountain ranges which are currently cross-regional in terms of our geographical hierarchy, therefore should not have their own articles. Sapphire has pledged to salvage the useful information from these articles before their demise.

  • Delete - Texugo 01:55, 13 March 2008 (EDT)
  • They may be searched for or linked to elsewhere, so redirect to the appropriate regions/destinations. Jpatokal 16:38, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
  • Keep mountain ranges are IMHO valid and frequent targets, eg. someone often goes to explore Beskids etc. -- 16:35, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
  • Simple redirection isn't really possible because the ranges cross predefined country and region borders. I could perhaps understand a disambiguation-style page that tells which geographical-hierarchally kosher region articles are involved, but not a full blown article with a giant list of all the towns in that range and all the template-defined article sections. And I think definitely the river one must be deleted, per policy. Texugo 02:19, 24 March 2008 (EDT)
  • Redirect, insofar as it is possible. Ranges crossing borders can usually be redirected to the next level up in the hierarchy, or just to whichever region article is most relevant. And I actually think Warta Mouth is an especially good candidate for a redirection, since it is the name of a national park—it could be redirected to either the park article (which doesn't exist) or the containing region (Wielkopolskie Voivodship). And, that linked policy is our policy for what is an article, not what is a redirect. --Peter Talk 06:56, 24 March 2008 (EDT)
  • Redirect these for now, with the option of keeping them if (as sometimes happens) the ranges make sensible regions. Our hierarchy doesn't handle rural regions well, as has come up on quite a few similar VFDs, redirects, and so on. Let's try to solve that fundamental problem and figure out what to do with these once it's solved. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 14:55, 4 May 2008 (EDT)
  • Keep or Redirect. All these are parts of the larger Carpathian range. I propose merging all of them, along with the Slovak Vysoke Tatry, into a single, international Carpathian entry (similar to the Alps entry) 00:45, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

May 2008[edit]

TAD xay[edit]

Already covered in Tad Xay and Pha Xay and due to the all uppercase a redirect does not seem required --Nick 03:42, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

redirect or delete --Romeoenchanted 03:44, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Outcome: Redirected. – cacahuate talk 17:18, 22 June 2008 (EDT)

ISimangaliso Birding Route[edit]

Not an article, ss quoted from their website: The isimangaliso Birding Route project is currently in the development stage and as such needs seed capital and start up finances. --Nick 13:16, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Any chance this could be turned into a useful Itinerary? I don't know. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 13:05, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

Duplicate of Image:Wynnstay-front.jpg --Nick 17:30, 19 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Strictly speaking, it's not really a "duplicate," being larger and higher resolution. However, it's clearly unnecessary to have both of these, so one can/should be deleted. In principle it would be nice to keep the higher resolution photo (this one) unless it's too big. Have we relaxed our limitations on image size? Discuss before deleting. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 13:28, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

Outcome: Deleted the lower quality one, kept higher quality. – cacahuate talk 17:18, 22 June 2008 (EDT)

Inter Island Airways[edit]

  • Delete. don't need articles for every airline in existence. also the info now on it was copied from Wikipedia – cacahuate talk 14:42, 22 May 2008 (EDT)
How do we decide whether an airline is worth its own article--when we have enough content on it? And can the content growth to the minimum allowed size when we don't allow it to live in stub state? (I don't mean this specific copyvio case--but we can just delete all copyvio content from the article and leave it empty stub, instead of deleting it completely). --DenisYurkin 17:25, 22 May 2008 (EDT)
I'm not really a fan of airline articles at all... I know it's been discussed, but I don't know where... I'd surely prefer that we just link to the airlines website though rather than try to keep an updated mirror of it on WT that talks about its routes and such. I know we've got American Airlines and a few others, there's somewhat more potential for those since you can talk about frequent flier info, airport lounges, etc... but what will there ever be to say about Inter Island Airways based in American Samoa, other than listing their route schedule? – cacahuate talk 13:13, 23 May 2008 (EDT)
You mean Wikitravel talk:What is an article?#Airlines?
I don't advocate this specific article. But isn't it time to define our policy on airlines more clearly? --DenisYurkin 17:42, 23 May 2008 (EDT)

Agra Fort[edit]

Unnecessary article on an attraction. Info belongs in Agra article. Text was just a copy of Wikipedia article. Pashley 04:20, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

I redirected it to Agra, which is how we've been handling attractions (though not businesses, those we're deleting still) – cacahuate talk 19:59, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Outcome: Redirected. – cacahuate talk 17:18, 22 June 2008 (EDT)


Image is of uncertain provenance. It is a drawing rather than a photograph of the statue and not very useful to a traveler. — Ravikiran 04:42, 3 June 2008 (EDT)
