Listings in regional articlesEdit

Hi, Thomson200, and thanks for adding all that content about articles on Georgia!

There's something I'm not sure about, though. Normally, templated listings are not used in region articles, only in bottom-level (city or park) articles. See Wikivoyage:Region article template:

Almost always, individual listings (including detailed contact info for restaurants and hotels) do *not* belong in a region or sub-region page. The region-level description is a brief overview only; it will mention that Walt Disney World is near Orlando but not list full contact info.[...]

Individual listings should be placed at the lowest available level of local page (a district of a huge city or the city page for a small town). If something is in a tiny rural village too small to justify its own local article, alternatives include:

  • creating a single local-level page for a broad, sparsely populated rural area (such as Rural Montgomery County) with multiple villages on one page,
  • adding the listing in the appropriate main section (see/do, eat/drink, buy, sleep) in the nearest city page if the town is just a suburb of that city, or
  • adding a section "Nearby" in an adjacent city article (before the "Go next" section). Divide this into a subsection named for each village in the surrounding area. Note that "Go next" normally lists the next destination which actually has an article in Wikivoyage.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, please reply below or post to Wikivoyage talk:Region article template, but I think the solution is to describe these attractions in prose in regional articles in a briefer way than you would in a templated listing, and leave the templated listings for bottom-level articles.

All the best,

Ok, I'll start moving the listings on the Georgia page to lower level pages. Thomson200 (talk) 20:12, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Excellent. And when you do, please remove address info that becomes default info. I wouldn't include GA or the zip code in anything, but I definitely would keep the name of the town if it's different from the topic of the article you're moving it to (such as if it's in the next town, which doesn't itself merit a full article).
