This page was moved because the original spelling of "Monterey" was incorrect. -- Evan 13:38, 6 Nov 2003 (PST)

Vote for Deletion discussion[edit]

  • Delete. The Central Coast (California) region is principally subdivided by county. The Monterey Bay article is a hybrid that stretches across Santa Cruz County and the northern part of Monterey County. Anything about Monterey Bay can be covered just as well by the two county articles, and I see no good reason to duplicate it in a Monterey Bay article. The article just clutters the otherwise tidy subdivision of the Central Coast. Nurg 23:17, 7 January 2012 (EST)
    • And what do you propose we show someone who searches for "Monterey Bay"? LtPowers 15:22, 8 January 2012 (EST)
      • Good point. Ryan's idea is better - make it a redirect. Nurg 04:36, 11 January 2012 (EST)
  • Definitely not a delete - this could conceivably become a redirect, but I think a disambiguation page would make more sense. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:13, 8 January 2012 (EST)
It is probably another candidate for Texugo's meta-region article --Inas 19:04, 8 January 2012 (EST)
Yes, yet another. Keep Pashley 07:39, 29 January 2012 (EST)
  • So is the consensus that this is going to be Merged into Monterey County and Santa Cruz County and then and redirected? I would support that. It looks pretty close but I'd guess that the greater part of the bay lies in Monterey County, so the redirect should point there.Travelpleb 23:38, 18 April 2012 (EDT)
    Any further comment? I think a disambiguation page makes the most sense since this is a likely search term and there isn't an obvious redirect target, but further comment would be useful. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:59, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
    It'd be nice to have something a little more detailed than a bare disambiguation page. After all, "Monterey Bay" is not ambiguous; it's just not in our hierarchy. Call it a "meta-region article" or whatever you want, but a brief discussion of the bay and its surroundings and maybe a map would best serve our readers. LtPowers 13:58, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
    Yes. Pashley 21:30, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
    I should have clarified that I meant "meta-disambiguation" (or whatever we're calling it) rather than just a standard disambiguation page - something similar to Knowledge Corridor. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:35, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
    Looks good. Let's do that.Travelpleb 02:07, 24 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Outcome I've made the page resemble Knowledge Corridor and copied this discussion to its talk page. Is that everything?Travelpleb 00:29, 25 April 2012 (EDT)
