- an empty page with just the title Waterfall WindHorse 11:29, 18 October 2006 (EDT)

  • DeleteRedirect. OldPine 16:43, 18 October 2006 (EDT) Changed vote. OldPine 10:46, 19 October 2006 (EDT)
  • Could I sell you a redirect to Waterfalls? I've redirect it in the meantime, but go ahead and delete if this vote passes. -- Colin 16:46, 18 October 2006 (EDT)
  • Yeah, redirect to Waterfalls is fine. I just never thought of it. WindHorse 20:08, 18 October 2006 (EDT)
  • Redirect. is good. -- Tom Holland (xltel) 09:24, 28 October 2006 (EDT)


  • My mistake. I uploaded the image only to English Wikitravel. I have now uploaded Image:Guangzhou_district_map.png into Wikitravel Shared now, so this can be deleted. Trsqr 00:52, 20 October 2006 (EDT)

Tour operators

Page has no info, not linked from or to anything.--justfred 12:59, 22 October 2006 (EDT)

The contend should be moved to the correct destination page, but I think this is a case where we dont want a redirect. I'd hate to see redirects croppin' up for every hotel and/or website out there... slippery slope imho. Maj 11:54, 23 October 2006 (EDT)

  • Speedy delete. -- Ryan 16:07, 4 November 2006 (EST)
  • Agreed. I'll do it. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 16:10, 4 November 2006 (EST)



  • Delete. There's a Baylor County in Texas, but I think it's more likely that we'd use that name. There's also a Baylor, Montana, according to the Getty Thesaurus, and I can find it on, but I can't really find it with any other tools. Geonames comes up with a post office (historical) and a school (historical) close to the dot for the town, but as far as I can tell there's just a field there now. At best this could be a disambiguation; otherwise I say drop it. --12:26, 25 October 2006 (EDT)
  • Redirect. To Waco, where the University is located. -- Tom Holland (xltel) 09:24, 28 October 2006 (EDT)
  • Redirect to Waco. -- Ryan 16:07, 4 November 2006 (EST)
  • Redirect. I've changed my mind about three times on this one, but what harm can a redirect do? -- Bill-on-the-Hill 16:22, 4 November 2006 (EST)


  • Not an officially recognised district of the city, but rather one drawn by the original contributor, presumably on religious and cultural grounds. Recommend deletion and transfer of content into appropriate official districts. Much of the content belongs within a relevant "Understand" section. Paul James Cowie 16:56, 23 October 2006 (EDT)
  • It doesn't need to be officially recognised to be useful to travellers. I don't know Jerusalem. Is this more useful than official names? Pashley 19:23, 23 October 2006 (EDT)
    • The name "Mea Shearim" [1] is overwhelmingly more common for the area. That said, it's not really a destination in the Wikitravel sense, because the Haredi (the more common spelling of "Chareidi") locals are not keen at all on tourists traipsing around and there are no places to stay. Jpatokal 21:40, 23 October 2006 (EDT)
  • How about redirecting to Jerusalem, and then this conversation can continue on Talk:Jerusalem/Chareidi. -- Ryan 16:07, 4 November 2006 (EST)
    • Sounds good. This appears to be more of a question where to redirect than whether to delete or not... Maj 12:47, 5 November 2006 (EST)

Image:IMG 0111.JPG

  • Delete. It's documented as being copied from a site which does not give permission to copy. Also it's a picture of people without a release per Wikitravel:Image policy#People in photos. -- Colin 02:01, 8 November 2006 (EST)
  • Delete - Blatant copyright violations would be grounds for speedy deletion. -- Ricardo (Rmx) 20:28, 8 November 2006 (EST)
  • This one is such a clear copyvio that I felt obliged to speedy-delete it. We can't allow that kind of thing. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 21:15, 8 November 2006 (EST)

Template:National Park India

  • Delete. A navigational menu for national parks in India, which is not something we normally use templates for per Wikitravel:Using Mediawiki templates. I'm in favor of keeping the template policy as-is, but there have been a few of these sorts of templates created lately, so others may have differing opinions. -- Ryan 03:14, 28 October 2006 (EDT)

Template:Bay Beaches

  • Delete. Same as above. -- Ryan 14:17, 28 October 2006 (EDT)
