Votes for deletion

Default Banner.jpg

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.

Please archive according to the date deleted, not the date nominated:


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.

  • Delete - This image appears to be a copyvio [1] and is uploaded without specifying source or proper description. --Rein N. 07:04, 2 March 2009 (EST)

Image:Picture 033.jpg and Image:Grand.JPG

These were deleted once already from the English Wikitravel, on the grounds that they violated privacy policy (many recognizable people). Re-created here, without fixing the problem, and should be deleted here as well. Somebody isn't getting the message. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 23:55, 14 March 2009 (EDT)

Image:Silver Lake.jpg

Uploader thoughtfully included the copyright notice so that we could see nice and clearly that it's a copyvio. Already deleted once from en:wt. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 00:18, 15 March 2009 (EDT)


Same author as the two above, and this time, a commercial advertising blurb. Still a clear copyvio. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 20:48, 15 March 2009 (EDT)
