Revision as of 11:42, 4 October 2006

This page contains lists of articles and images which are recommended for deletion. Any Wikitraveller can recommend an article or image for deletion, and any Wikitraveller can comment on the deletion nomination. Articles and images are presumed guilty until proven innocent. After fourteen (14) days of discussion, if a consensus is reached to retain an article, it won't be deleted. Otherwise it will be deleted by an administrator. Please read the Nominating and Commenting sections prior to nominating articles/images or commenting on nominations.

Nominating

The basic format for a deletion nomination is the following:

===[[Chicken]]===
* Delete.  Not a valid travel article topic. ~~~~

Please follow these steps when nominating an article or image for deletion:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion. If you are unsure, bring up the issue on the talk page.
  2. If the article or image meets the deletion criteria, do any preparatory work (like orphaning an image, or combining the article with one it duplicates) prior to listing it here.
  3. For the article or image being proposed for deletion, add a {{vfd}} tag to the top of the article so that people viewing the article will know that it is proposed for deletion.
  4. Add a link to the article or image at the end of the list below, along with the reason why it is being listed for deletion. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~"). List one article or image per entry.

Commenting

All Wikitravellers are asked to state their opinion about articles and images listed for deletion. The format for comments is:

===[[Chicken]]===
* Delete.  Not a valid travel article topic. TravelNut 25:25, 31 Feb 2525 (EDT)
* Keep.  There is a town in [[Alaska]] called Chicken. ~~~~

When leaving comments:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion.
  2. You may vote to delete, keep, or redirect the article. If your opinion is that the article should be kept or redirected, please state why you feel that way. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~").

Deleting, or not

After fourteen (14) days of discussion, there will probably be consensus one way or the other. If the consensus is to keep, redirect or merge, then any Wikitraveller can do it. If you are redirecting, please remember to check for broken redirects or double redirects as a result of your move. Remove any VFD notices from that page and copy the deletion discussion to the talk page of the article being kept or redirected.

If the result is delete, then only an administrator can delete. Check if any article links to the image or article in question. After removing those links, delete the image or article. However, if the image is being deleted because it has been moved to the shared repository with the same name, do not remove links to the images, as the links will be automatically be pointed to the shared repository.

After you keep/redirect/merge/delete the article, copy the deletion discussion to the Archives page for the appropriate month. The root Archives page has a directory. Note that it's the month in which the action was taken, rather than when the nomination was first posted, that should be used for the archived discussion; that way, recourse to the deletion log can lead subsequent readers right to the discussion (at least for the pages that were deleted).

September 2006

Prince George's County

  • Keep: I have changed this by putting in a region template. It is much better to discuss policy changes prior to implementation. Suggest the proposal above by the anon be discussed and a consensus reached before setting policy. refer discussion to Wikitravel talk:Geographical hierarchy -- Tom Holland (xltel) 14:20, 21 September 2006 (EDT)
It has been mentioned on the Talk:Prince George's County page by User:Jonboy that a county breakdown is not needed for Maryland, based upon that, I don't object to deleting or redirecting this. I just don't want to "turn on" a massive effort to redirect all county pages I suspected that was starting. I would hope we would discuss that and come to some sort of agreement on massive redirects before implementation. -- Tom Holland (xltel) 11:16, 23 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Keep/Redirect. This county often gets referred to as a location. I could see someone saying "where can we eat in PG" and searching for this name. But I agree that this shouldn't spark a massive effort to redirect. Clarke County, GA, to pick another place I've lived, is not some place that I think needs to be redirected. -- Jonboy 21:28, 24 September 2006 (EDT)

Image:Kalady.JPG

  • Delete. Marked as a copyvio since August. -- Ryan 05:49, 22 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Delete. -- Jonboy 22:03, 3 October 2006 (EDT)

User:Testwiki

  • 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)

Image:WarsawMetropolitan.jpg

  • Marked VFD back in August, but apparently never listed on this page. Orphaned image. -- Ryan 20:50, 25 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Keep. The image is compatible with our copyleft. Also, we could move it to Shared and I could make use of it on DE and EN. I'm sure the PL people could use the image too. -- Sapphire 21:01, 25 September 2006 (EDT)

Image:Poznan1.jpg

  • Marked VFD back in August, but apparently never listed on this page. A Shalom Alochem image, so likely copyvio. -- Ryan 20:52, 25 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Keep. Has a link to source at Wikimedia Commons. -- Colin 21:10, 25 September 2006 (EDT)

Image:Dziwnow.jpg

  • Marked VFD back in August, but apparently never listed on this page. A Shalom Alochem image, so likely copyvio. -- Ryan 20:52, 25 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Delete. -- Colin 21:10, 25 September 2006 (EDT)

Image:Beinisvord, westcoast of suduroy, faroe islands.JPG

  • Marked VFD back in August, but apparently never listed on this page. License is apparently GFDL, not CC-SA. -- Ryan 20:58, 25 September 2006 (EDT)

Casas particulares

  • Marked as VFD back in August. Should either redirect to Casa particular (my vote) or else both articles should be deleted. -- Ryan 21:02, 25 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Redirect Pashley 06:11, 26 September 2006 (EDT)

Mera Peak Climbing

  • An attempted itinerary, but contained copyvio text from http://www.himalayanglacier.com/. Now, it's simply a blank page with a vfd template. -- Sapphire 03:24, 26 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Delete, or if someone suggests a suitable redirect then redirect. -- Ryan 17:23, 27 September 2006 (EDT)

Island Peak Climbing

  • An attempted itinerary, but contained copyvio text from http://www.himalayanglacier.com/. Now, it's simply a blank page with a vfd template. -- Sapphire 03:24, 26 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Delete, or if someone suggests a suitable redirect then redirect. -- Ryan 17:23, 27 September 2006 (EDT)

Template:ArticleStatusList

  • Delete. An index to the various article status pages, which is not the type of thing we've used templates for in the past. If we're going to start implementing templates for indexes then we should probably discuss first and modify Wikitravel:Using Mediawiki templates to expand the list of acceptable template uses. -- Ryan 14:00, 29 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Delete. -- Sapphire 14:05, 29 September 2006 (EDT)

Guineanne music

I'm not sure what this is, but I'm pretty sure it's not a phrasebook. Jpatokal 03:51, 1 October 2006 (EDT)

Coral island

Uninhabited island, not a destination. Covered in Tioman. Jpatokal 22:55, 3 October 2006 (EDT)

Travel Blog

  • I don't think this contributes anything. Also, an external links magnet. Delete. -- Jonboy 22:06, 3 October 2006 (EDT)

Finland province maps

Keep. Here is permission from the author, dual-licensing them as CC by-sa 1.0 — in Finnish, alas, but "OK" means the same thing in most languages... Jpatokal 06:04, 4 October 2006 (EDT)
