Wikitravel talk:Disambiguation page index

I'm not sure I understand why we have this page when there is Wikitravel:Links to disambiguating pages? DhDh 06:31, 14 Feb 2004 (EST)

This is for those pages that
  1. Have disambiguation page notices on them.
  2. Have disambiguators (...) in their titles but do not have a disambiguation page. i.e. Unnnecessary disambiguation.
  3. Have a famous place name that is ambiguous and pages with the same name plus a disambiguator - thus there is no disambiguation page.
  • It can be useful to see where the holes are in the disambiguation system. - Huttite 06:09, 19 Mar 2004 (EST)
Can we reopen the debate as to whether or not this page is necessary anymore? You can now find disambiguation pages by looking at what links to Template:disamb. You can find places meeting the "most famous" rule by looking at what links to Template:otheruses. I'll try to clean up the list of articles that have disambiguators but no disambiguation page, after which I think this can be safely redirected to Wikitravel:Links to disambiguating pages. Thoughts or objections? -- Ryan 12:28, 25 March 2006 (EST)
I agree. — Ravikiran 13:48, 25 March 2006 (EST)
I've copied the above to Wikitravel:Votes for deletion#Wikitravel:Disambiguation page index with a recommendation that the page be redirected (not deleted). -- Ryan 21:23, 25 March 2006 (EST)

Pages with Disambiguation Notices[edit]

The section headed "The following articles are disambiguation pages that have the disambiguation notice on them. They are listed here for convenience" appears to be exactly the same list as the Wikitravel:Links_to_disambiguating_pages list (there are differences, but only because both are updated on an ad hoc basis).

As both lists have to be maintained manually (?) any reason why the list not be removed from this page and replaced with a link to Wikitravel:Links_to_disambiguating_pages - ? Done (6 Feb 2006)

Redirect discussion from Wikitravel:Votes for deletion[edit]

  • Redirect to Wikitravel:Links to disambiguating pages. The purpose of the old page was (according to its talk page) to keep a list of "most famous" exceptions to the disambiguation rules, disambiguation pages that needed to be created, and pages that have disambiguation notices in them. "Most famous" pages can now be found by looking at what links to Template:otheruses, I've created all disambiguation pages that were listed as "need to be created", and the page didn't have a list of disambiguation pages (Wikitravel:Links to disambiguating pages does). -- Ryan 21:20, 25 March 2006 (EST)
    • I agree. — Ravikiran 13:48, 25 March 2006 (EST)
