Votes for deletion

Default Banner.jpg

This page contains lists of articles and images which are recommended for deletion. Any Wikitraveller can recommend an article or image for deletion, and any Wikitraveller can comment on the deletion nomination. Articles and images are presumed guilty until proven innocent. After fourteen (14) days of discussion, if a consensus is reached to retain an article, it won't be deleted. Otherwise it will be deleted by an administrator. Please read the Nominating and Commenting sections prior to nominating articles/images or commenting on nominations.


There are archives available for this page. Please do not edit the archives - instead, start a new thread.


The basic format for a deletion nomination is the following:

* Delete.  Not a valid travel article topic. ~~~~

Please follow these steps when nominating an article or image for deletion:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion.
  2. For the article or image being proposed for deletion, add a {{vfd}} tag to the top of the article so that people viewing the article will know that it is proposed for deletion.
  3. Add a link to the article or image at the end of the list below, along with the reason why it is being listed for deletion. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~"). List one article or image per entry.


All Wikitravellers are asked to state their opinion about articles and images listed for deletion. The format for comments is:

* '''Delete'''.  Not a valid travel article topic. TravelNut 25:25, 31 Feb 2525 (EDT)
* '''Keep'''.  There is a town in [[Alaska]] called Chicken. ~~~~

When leaving comments:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion.
  2. You may vote to delete, keep, or redirect the article. If your opinion is that the article should be kept or redirected, please state why you feel that way. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~").

Deleting, or not[edit]

After fourteen (14) days of discussion, there will probably be consensus one way or the other. If the consensus is to keep, redirect or merge, then any Wikitraveller can do it. If you are redirecting, please remember to check for broken redirects or double redirects as a result of your move. Remove any VFD notices from that page and copy the deletion discussion to the talk page of the article being kept or redirected.

If the result is delete, then only an administrator can delete. Check if any article links to the image or article in question. After removing those links, delete the image or article.

After you keep/redirect/merge/delete the article, copy the deletion discussion to the appropriate archive.

File:OsadaSredniowieczna Sławutowo-Poland.jpg[edit]

Author's request. I failed to upload the picture. I suppose, cause of the error is that its file name contains special character "ł". Anyway the picture is not shown. Plesae delete this file. After deletion, I will upload it again. --Sroka (talk) 16:34, 15 August 2020 (EDT)

Hi, the picture has been deleted, let us know if you need any further assistance. Happy editing! Adzas (talk) 07:44, 17 August 2020 (EDT)

File:Lindi banner 1.JPG[edit]

Didn't realise banner file must end in 'banner.jpg'. Please delete, sorry! --Trusip (talk) 09:14, 19 July 2015 (EDT) I cannot upload the new (correctly named) banner until the old banner, Lindi banner 1.jpg, is deleted as it is flagged as a duplicate file. Please delete, apologies for the hassle. --Trusip (talk) 06:21, 23 July 2015 (EDT)

I just deleted this one as well, please try again. Thanks! Adzas (talk) 09:36, 23 July 2015 (EDT)

File:Lindi banner.jpg[edit]

File was accidentally uploaded twice in the incorrect size. Both files should be deleted. Apologies, new user here --Trusip (talk) 03:10, 17 July 2015 (EDT)

Done, thanks for letting us know. Adzas (talk) 11:46, 18 July 2015 (EDT)

Files uploaded by RIZU[edit]

RIZU have uploaded three similar files in 2009: File:Snow My town.jpg, File:Japan Snow.jpg and File:003.JPG. They do not have a license and I do not think they are in use. Uploader is not active. I therefore suggest to delete the files. --MGA73 08:09, 19 January 2013 (EST)

Thanks for your notice! I see that RIZU has an inactive account over here. Just in case, I decided to send him a message on EN WT before deleting the pictures, asking if he is planning to use them in any article. [1]. Best, IBAlex 18:56, 21 January 2013 (EST)

File:AHeneen Paris.JPG, File:AHeneen TourEiffel.png[edit]

This was a personal user page image that I know longer wish to have on WTS. It should be deleted since it does not add to the Wikitravel project. AHeneen 19:21, 26 January 2013 (EST)

Done, IBAlex 13:04, 28 January 2013 (EST)

File:Passport InfoPage.png[edit]

Despite the fact that the sensitive information is blurred-out, this is not an image which is necessary on WTS. The image is not in use on any page and has an identifiable person (no name, but image/birthdate). I was a little naive/stupid in uploading this pic without blurring everything. AHeneen 19:21, 26 January 2013 (EST)

Done, IBAlex 13:05, 28 January 2013 (EST)

File:Flag of Syria.svg[edit]

Shows a stupid image instead of the flag. 04:56, 8 August 2013 (EDT)

Good observation. Deleted. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 13:23, 8 August 2013 (EDT)

File:Flag of Malta.svg[edit]

Duplicate of this file 13:30, 14 August 2013 (EDT)

We do upload pictures from Wikimedia Commons to Wikitravel Shared so that they can be used on other language versions of Wikitravel. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 19:36, 14 August 2013 (EDT)
This has a black border 14:21, 15 August 2013 (EDT)
