Wikivoyage:Itinerary status

This page describes the criteria for determining the article status of an itinerary.

Status Name Description
1 Stub An article with little or no information, or not formatted even close to the manual of style. An otherwise-valid article without an article skeleton template may hold this status briefly; adding an appropriate skeleton promotes the article to "outline". A page which has little or no prospect of becoming an article (or being redirected to an article) would be tagged for speedy {{delete}} or nominated for {{vfd}} if what little information it conveys does not meet Wikivoyage's goals.
2 Outline Has at least the normal introductory paragraph (this can be as short as a single sentence describing the region or endpoints of the itinerary) and a template outline laid out for the article. Some of the sections of the template may have content, but not all of them.
3 Usable Has at least complete Understand and Get In sections, and a complete point-to-point listing of the itinerary's stops.
4 Guide It describes each stop and how to get there. In addition, it suggests sights or side-trips along the way. Listings and layout closely match the manual of style. Should have a custom page-banner.
5 Star Has a map showing the route of the itinerary, identifying landmarks (such as cities) along the way. The format either matches the manual of style exactly or is the exception that proves the rule. Prose is not only near-perfect grammatically but also tight, effective, and enjoyable. At least one good-quality photo accompanies the article; preferably 2-3 showing famous or important attractions.
