This is a redirect to Mount Hiei, but Sakamoto is a district name in various cities, and if the redirect is made, it should redirect to Otsu instead. I have not done any great amount of research on how many cities have districts named "Sakamoto", but I think it may be better off deleted. ChubbyWimbus 20:52, 17 August 2009 (EDT)

Keep. Again, I think you're focusing too much on the random lines drawn by bureaucrats and ignoring the actual geography on the ground. It's 12 train stops and 30 min from Otsu to Sakamoto, they are in no rational sense the same town. Hiei and Sakamoto, on the other hand, are intimately intertwined geographically and historically, and best covered in the same article.
If there really are other notable places called "Sakamoto", the current redirect can be changed into a disambig, but [1] only lists an obscure village in Kumamoto. Jpatokal 23:00, 18 August 2009 (EDT)

Outcome: kept as is ChubbyWimbus 23:53, 7 September 2009 (EDT)

Albany Highway

This itinerary was created over two years ago, has not been substantially modified, and only contains the useful advice not to exceed the speed limit.

  • Delete. In the unlikely event that content should ever be developed for this route, the article can be recreated. This route is not generally considered a touring route, rather it is an access road. The equivalent information can be better placed by using the routebox project. --inas 19:47, 18 August 2009 (EDT)

Image:Sewage.jpg, Image:BikeJumping.jpg, and Stanwell Tops (history only)

  • These images (and article history) do not help Wikitravel. Stanwell Tops is a small town with a large conference centre and a good lookout which can both easily be incorporated into the Illawarra page. This page has been reverted three times to the page which was made into a joke and is completely inappropriate for Wikitravel. It's best that we delete the images and its history to stop it being reverted. Delete JRG 22:44, 21 August 2009 (EDT)
Delete the images. Agree they are not relevant in any way. Stanwell Tops may be better redirected to Wollongong rather than Illawarra, but this can be discussed elsewhere. I don't think there is any precedent or policy for deleting history just because of vandalism. We would have a lot of history to delete if we did that. So I would say that we Keep the history, but it isn't a strong keep, so if the body of opinion is to delete it, don't let me stand in the way. --inas 01:41, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
It's just that one particular edit. It's far too easy for the user in question to keep reverting to it, otherwise. JRG 09:02, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
Yeah, I just reviewed all the edits. Delete it. There is nothing there of value. --inas 22:43, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Outcome: deleted, with only Inas's most recent revision of Stanwell Tops (the redirect) restored. -- Dguillaime 23:15, 7 September 2009 (EDT)

Image:Secbad station.jpg

This image has been tagged as copyvio since ages. — Ravikiran 07:18, 24 August 2009 (EDT)

  • delete Pashley 22:10, 24 August 2009 (EDT)

India in Motion

  • Delete. Although previously proposed for merge and redirect, it is an unlikely search, I would have thought. --inas 01:58, 25 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Delete. It is unlikely that anyone will land up at a travel guide and search for a film. — Ravikiran 03:57, 25 August 2009 (EDT)
