VFD discussion[edit]


  • Delete. As mentioned on the Wikitravel talk:Votes for deletion, this appears to be an experiment to see if links here raise a site's Google rank. Entire content is one link which is neither particularly interesting nor at all related to travel. The "user" has made only one "contribution"; this page. Pashley 07:35, 25 September 2006 (EDT)
    • I'm a bit uncomfortable with the idea of deleting user pages unless they contain hate speech or blatant spam. Quoting from Wikitravel:User page help: "It's possible for other users to edit, change, delete, move, overwrite, add to, or otherwise mess around with User pages or subpages. It's generally considered bad form to do so, though, unless invited by the user.". My feeling is that it's probably not a good idea to start policing user pages unless they are obvious violations. That's just me though - others may have different opinions. -- Ryan 21:23, 25 September 2006 (EDT)
    • I too feel this way. Although, I think an exception for vandalism should be made too (I.e. User:OIdPine with a capital "eye" instead of lowecase "elle"). -- Sapphire 21:29, 25 September 2006 (EDT)
    • See second paragraph in Wikitravel:Deletion_policy#Deletion_procedure. Based on the difference between first and second edits of the page in question, it looks to me as if someone (original creator? can't tell from ISP address) already requested a delete. If someone can tell easily whether the ISP is that of the original creator, and it turns out to be, this can be deleted without compunctions. If not, keep it, for the reasons Ryan gives. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 17:09, 6 October 2006 (EDT)
  • I don't see a consensus either way here, so any objection to just keeping this page? If the user in question really does want it deleted they can also request it be deleted in the future. -- Ryan 19:48, 14 October 2006 (EDT)
    • Looks OK to me. I'll do the e-paperwork. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 21:42, 14 October 2006 (EDT)
