Category:National ParksEdit

Moved from Wikivoyage:Tourist office

Hi. Could someone tell me that Acadia National Park, Denali National Park, Everglades National Park, Yosemite National Park, and Zion National Park are all in the category National Parks? Thank you! Asked by: Tailsultimatefan3891 (talk) 00:54, 29 October 2022 (UTC)

Never mind,   Done Tailsultimatefan3891 (talk) 00:59, 29 October 2022 (UTC)
No, we don't use categories like these per Wikivoyage:Categories. Additionally, this is ridiculously too broad of a category; even if there is consensus to have such a category, there will be well over 6000 articles in this category (assuming all have been created).

I am sorry for all those contributions I made, should we get this user involved in this: Ikan Kekek Tailsultimatefan3891 (t | c | ca) 01:32, 29 October 2022 (UTC)
I hope no-one minds, but I'm going to move this to the Wikivoyage:Arrivals lounge because that's where this discussion is supposed to belong. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta) 09:06, 9 November 2022 (UTC)
How about not having it here, either, as it was trolling by a globally locked user? Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:55, 9 November 2022 (UTC)
I think it's still useful to have a record of the discussion somewhere. Plus, they weren't globally locked when they started this thread. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta) 01:23, 13 November 2022 (UTC)
It's not a live discussion and should be archived somewhere. Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:35, 13 November 2022 (UTC)
It should be done by ArchiverBot. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta) 01:39, 13 November 2022 (UTC)
