Deleted content that used to be

 #REDIRECT Eastern Europe

It didn't make any sense... Maybe delete page. (if not create a list of surrounding countries or sth) -- JanSlupski 16:25, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)

I redirected it back to Northern Europe, where it pointed in the first place, before it was changed. Should be a redirect page as we do not write articles about bodies of water (yet). -- Huttite 16:28, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
But redirecting it to any of Northern, Eastern, or Central Europe seems to be misleading. Maybe redirect to Europe? -- JanSlupski 16:52, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
Redirecting to one of these places is better than nothing. Perhaps we make it a disambiguation page and redirect it to all 3 as well as the Baltics too. -- Huttite 16:53, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
Northern, Eastern and Central Europe all have countries with Baltic coast. Either make an article of its own, or if we strictly do not like bodies of water, remove it together with all the links. Personally, I don't see why we are trying to limit the guide to land travellers only (waterways are a great way to travel). Anyway, I agree that this redirect does not make sense.

In fact there's only a single link from Stockholm, so this page is almost orphaned anyway. Just remove the link and delete the page. Wojsyl 16:58, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
NO! Avoid deleting pages in Wikis if at all possible. This page is a legitimate word combination that someone will link to in the future. It should remain as either a redirect or disambiguation page waiting for someone new to link to it and explain the problems we have already encountered. This way learning and knowledge is not lost. -- Huttite 17:04, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
OK. Although I'm not convinced if we have learnt anything here really. Just created some more confusion ;-) Wojsyl 17:07, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
OK. Agree page shouldn't be deleted, as: a) Probably somebody will recreate it, b) somebody else may search 'baltic sea' term. -- JanSlupski 17:17, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
I don't think it causes confusion. Instead it encourages people to think about what they are looking for and gives options to look at. Ideally a disambiguation page does not get linked to, because people try to make the links go elsewhere. The page then exists to provide guidance to the better links than the one used. That way our learning is captured for others to use. --Huttite 17:24, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
