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.


The basic format for a deletion nomination is the following:

* 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.


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

* '''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.

After you keep/redirect/merge/delete the article, copy the deletion discussion to the appropriate archive.

Image:Kilkenny Map.gif

  • Delete. Allowing users to post the map on facebook does not amount to a release into the public domain. It appears that this map remains copyrighted and unavailable under licenses compatible with our copyleft. --Peter 22:27, 6 September 2008 (EDT)

  • Delete. Accidental double upload, the "PNG" is the undesired one next to the "png" version, which should stay. PerryPlanet 18:50, 13 September 2008 (EDT)


User:It's So Easy Travel Insurance

  • Keep. We haven't really built a consensus one way or the other on this issue, I don't think... A user who owns a resort should be able to write about their resort and link to it on their userpage, I don't see that as a huge problem. But we have deleted pages that were huge spam link farms, which is a different issue. What do others think on this? – cacahuate talk 14:51, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Delete. It opens the door to numerous free standing ads that will be impossible to control. We will have a page for every airline, Ins. co., travel agency and so on. I see a User Page as a personal page rather than a commercial page within WT. 15:24, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Map by the Korean Tourism Organization, claimed as CC with no proof. The KTO website states "All rights reserved." Jpatokal 03:49, 10 October 2008 (EDT)

Delete. The KTO must explicitly say CC-bySA is okay with them in order for us to keep this. -- Cjensen 23:35, 13 October 2008 (EDT)

Here is the same image from KTO; Image:Map of Korea.jpg. -- Tatata 23:56, 13 October 2008 (EDT)

OK. Please state "released into the public domain" or "licensed under CC-BY-SA" on the site for each image. I think it's easy and better way if you are the editor of the site. Thanks. -- Tatata 11:03, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Thanks. have reuploaded all pictures and put "I release into the public domain" ,please let me know if I did it correctly. Thanks. -- Db12345 16:39, 14 October 2008
Have also added to the discalimer on Swazilive that it is fine to use these images. -- Db12345 16:53, 14 October 2008
I read "(2a)Permissions" on the disclaimer page of the site. Thank you very much! By the way, CC-BY-SA has some versions. So I put Template:cc-by-sa-all on each image page above. If you prefer a specific version of CC-BY-SA, please select from Tags#Licensing and replace the template in "Licensing" section on each image page. Thank you again. -- Tatata 21:33, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
