VFD Discussion[edit]

A ghost town, population 544. The only thing to see is a handful of abandoned buildings. No place to stay. It hasn't appeared on official Texas highway maps since 1992, and even Google Maps can't find it properly.

  • Any further guidance on which of the two towns to redirect to? Barring further clarification, and based on a five minute search for this place using the Google, I'd lean towards a delete since I'm not sure that a redirect that may or may not be correct would actually be a good thing. -- Ryan • (talk) • 23:21, 16 June 2010 (EDT)
Is that correct though? The first suggested redirect target, The Colony, is currently listed as being in Prairies and Lakes, not Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. My concern is that normally we create a redirect as an aid to the traveler, but in this case I'm not sure if 1) we're redirecting to the right place and 2) this redirect would be of any value at all. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:14, 1 July 2010 (EDT)
Well, look for yourself. It is not true that Google Maps cannot find it properly, it is here [1] with Frisco to the East and The Colony to the South. And seems to be in the Megaplex when looking there. --globe-trotter 09:07, 2 July 2010 (EDT)
Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but when I search via Google maps I get a location that's midway between Houston and San Antonio: [2]. In either case, if a redirect to Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex makes the most sense then I don't object. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:53, 2 July 2010 (EDT)
Redirect The Hackberry that Google Earth directed me to is adjacent to Frisco. Hackberry the ghost town is located in Lavaca County, which is between Houston & San Antonio. Since the former seems to just be a few housing developments in a suburb, I'd say the ghost town is more interesting and this should be a redirect to the sub-region Post Oak Savannah.

Result: Redirected to Post Oak Savannah. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:38, 21 August 2010 (EDT)
