Alpine pearls[edit]

I'm nominating this one for deletion just to see what happens. I don't think we generally have articles for tourism associations, do we? Texugo 07:23, 26 October 2008 (EDT)

  • Yah, thats not right, Delete.  :) Keep smilin' Edmontonenthusiast 19:45, 26 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Merge into Alps? It would seem a shame to lose this information about sustainable tourism in such a heavily visited region. Tarr3n 10:19, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
  • I was going to say "keep", since I think it could become a viable article. Travel topic, perhaps? However, I Checked for copyvio and found the entire article is word-for-word from Wikipedia [1].
  • So now I say trash existing text, redirect this to the [Alps] article, and add a sentence or two and a link to there. That lets us put links to Alpine pearls in the articles for towns that are involved in the program. If someone later undoes the redirect and writes a real article on these pearls, that's OK too.

    • I speedied it, but immediately restored it. The text was written by a user with the same name on both sites; assuming it's the same person, it's not a copyright violation. I say just redirect it. LtPowers 10:39, 19 November 2008 (EST)
  • Delete. Texugo asked the right question, and there's no compelling affirmative answer. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 20:58, 16 December 2008 (EST)
    • I'm starting to reconsider my position here. There is precedent for articles listing destinations bound by some notable, "official" distinction, e.g. UNESCO World Heritage List and UNESCO Creative Cities. Is UNESCO less a "tourism association" than the people behind this, just because it's associated with the United Nations? I now incline to keep, but let's discuss once more, then put it to bed. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 13:52, 30 December 2008 (EST)
  • That's the right question, but it contains the word "generally" and this may be an exception. It is travel-related & Tarr3n makes a good point as well. It is not a destination or region in our usual senses, but the info seems worth having. I'm not sure if it should be a travel topic, a redirect to a short section in Alps, or what, but I do not think it's an outright delete. Pashley 23:13, 25 December 2008 (EST)

Result: Consensus is to keep the information found here. A merge can be discussed on the talk page. LtPowers 08:17, 26 January 2009 (EST)
