Clare CountyEdit

per User talk: ~ 13:02, 18 May 2007 (EDT)


A kind of apple wine: not a travel topic. Article apparently created because someone left the name linked, Wikipedia-style. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 19:56, 19 May 2007 (EDT)

Moula Ali DargahEdit

I have no idea what or where this is, but it doesn't sound like an article. "Content" (I use that loosely) might be worth rescuing if somebody can figure out where it could go... (WT-en) Jpatokal 05:21, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Images by User:(WT-en) KpvishnuEdit

This user uploaded a lot of images, most of which appear to be copyvios, and none of which a license was selected for. Ryan left the user a note on his talk page last year, but the user never contributed again under that name. Many of them are tiny and not that useful anyhow.

Mount Donna BuangEdit

This was speedy-deleted on the grounds that it's not a destination, but being that it's a ski resort and we've kept other ski-resort articles, I've restored it and would like to see our rigorous process applied. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 10:09, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

  • It might be a free-standing destination, depending on how remote and how extensive it is. I assume You Can Sleep There™, but if it's within day-trip distance of Melbourne and/or just a single lodging, I'd put it as a "Do" item there and redirect. Unfortunately the article doesn't give any real clues, does it? - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 11:53, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
  • I've done a bit more poking around, and my sources imply that you cannot sleep there; the nearest lodging appears to be in somewhere called Warburton. However, Mount Donna Buang definitely qualifies as an "attraction" along the lines of other ski areas that don't justify articles themselves. The indicated path forward seems to be to create a Warburton stub, and redirect this one there. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 21:43, 30 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Outcome - Redirected to Warburton --(WT-en) NJR_ZA 11:11, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

Royal Tyrrell Museum of PalaeontologyEdit

Attraction, not a destination. (WT-en) Jordanmills 19:49, 17 May 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: Redirected to Dinosaur Provincial Park. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 18:31, 9 June 2007 (EDT)


Outcome: Kept, but flagged for Manual of Style work. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 18:34, 9 June 2007 (EDT)


The following images were uploaded by User:(WT-en) Ajmalahmedkhan, who has previously demonstrated a limited understanding of copyright.

All other pics are also guilty by association and I'd be tempted to delete them to be sure. (WT-en) Jpatokal 07:06, 24 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Delete all. -- (WT-en) Fastestdogever 10:26, 24 May 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: Deleted. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 20:30, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

Cook CountyEdit

It's time to seriously reorganise Chicagoland. It seems to me that these county articles might make sense in a guide for locals who know all about the county boundries, etc. however they are not terribly useful for the traveller. If the counties are mentioned at all it should be in a geographical exposition in Chicagoland.

I'm definitely supportive of not using counties as regions, but given the famousness of this one it might be worth keeping as a redirect. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 11:18, 25 May 2007 (EDT)
Famous or not the page has sat empty for several years, and I think it's a good part of why Chicagoland has been stagnant, since nobody has wanted to undertake a county-by-county exposition of the suburbs. -- (WT-en) Mark 05:57, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
Redirect. I'm from that continent but not that region. I've never been closer to Chicago than its airport. I recognise "Cook county" but had never heard of Chicagoland until I saw the page here. I think that means some people might search for Cook county, so there should be a redirect. (WT-en) Pashley 06:25, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
Good point. I've done it. -- (WT-en) Mark 15:30, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
Redirect (WT-en) WindHorse 21:48, 3 June 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: Redirected to Chicagoland. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 20:31, 10 June 2007 (EDT)

Kankakee CountyEdit

The situation here is similar to that of Cook County above. There is no real information on the page, and all of the cities included are linked out from Chicagoland.

Kankakee County is no Cook County, but a redirect to Kankakee wouldn't hurt. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 09:54, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
Redirect to Kankakee

Outcome: Redirected to Kankakee. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 20:33, 10 June 2007 (EDT)

Image:Century 21 new horizon.gifEdit

Outcome: Deleted. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 23:07, 11 June 2007 (EDT)


  • Delete - An airfield. --(WT-en) NJR_ZA 10:29, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep, although it needs to be formatted properly. It's 100 km away from Frankfurt and features hotels etc, so it's a sleepable destination. (WT-en) Jpatokal 10:56, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep. I suppose technically it's an article for the village of Hahn, which just happens to have a commercial airport which is the main focus of the article. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 18:21, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep as Hahn (the village with an airfield) (WT-en) WindHorse 09:39, 4 June 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep - for reasons above. I've added a city template and moved the airfield info into the Get In section, as a start. (WT-en) WTDuck2 10:46, 7 June 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: Kept. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 09:50, 12 June 2007 (EDT)

Image:Flores from the South East.jpgEdit

  • Delete – covered with a huge logo for one of the accomodation options on Flores, and we've already got a similar aerial shot of the island anyhow. – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 04:22, 26 May 2007 (EDT)
The uploader is the owner of the guesthouse in question, so I've put the image on her userpage and removed it from the Flores article. So, no need to delete  :) – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 01:59, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep, with Cacahuate's modification -- and with significant misgivings. This gets into a murky area that we're going to have to address at some point: how to handle user-page content that's not in line with article content guidelines? But in the absence of clarity there, the copyvio issue seems to have gone away, at least. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 09:46, 12 June 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: kept, only for use on user's userpage – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Image:Ziarat_Residency.jpg and Image:Ziarat Residency In Winter.gifEdit

Apparent copyright violations from [5] and [6] - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 12:07, 28 May 2007 (EDT)

And a bunch more, with copyvio refs contained on each page: Image:Mehrgarh Dentistes.jpg Image:Markhor2.jpg Image:Markhor.jpg Image:Pir Ghaib.jpg Image:Wildgoat.jpg. He uploaded one that turned out out to be legal (except the fraudulent claim to be PD), and another that he uploaded to Wikipedia as well, and appears to be original by him. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 13:03, 28 May 2007 (EDT)

  • I've deleted most of these, but Image:Pir Ghaib.jpg, which is taken from the Flickr site, appears to be released into the public domain on Flickr, if I understand the blurb there correctly. Could one of you folks who know more about Flickr than I look into that? As far as I can tell, that one can be retained, and it's a nice photo. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 09:51, 13 June 2007 (EDT)
It's listed as "All rights reserved" on Flickr, so I'm gonna delete it now too... – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: deleted all – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Other Islands (New Zealand)Edit

A catch-all for the smaller islands of NZ, but all of the islands listed hug the coastline of either South Island or North Island, and the articles linked to from here are already (appropriately) linked to from those regions. Currently an orphan. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 17:40, 28 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Delete no one will search for 'Other Islands'. (WT-en) WindHorse 22:04, 3 June 2007 (EDT)
  • Redirect - we may as well redirect this on the off chance that someone will try and recreate it in the future. -- (WT-en) Tim (writeme!) 07:50, 12 June 2007 (EDT)
  • Delete. Agree with WindHorse. This doesn't seem a sensible thing to search for. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 09:53, 13 June 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: redirected to New Zealand – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Tel Aviv/HaYarqon StreetEdit

A street does not a district make. Only content is a link to a hotel. -- (WT-en) DanielC 08:52, 29 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Delete (WT-en) WindHorse 22:04, 3 June 2007 (EDT)
  • Delete, after merging hotel content into something appropriate. Keep for the moment. I've changed my mind on this. Tel Aviv poses some curious problems fitting into our usual hierarchy, in that it is a not-terribly-large city (under 400,000) that would normally not need districts at all, but it's the centerpiece of a definitely huge metropolitan area (Gush Dan -- 3M, I think) that isn't well developed yet in terms of articles here. On reflection I think it would be best to keep this district until we make sense out of the entire Gush Dan complex of articles and articles-to-be. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 09:56, 12 June 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: Kept so Bill can sort out – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Savica WaterfallEdit

Not famous enough to warrent it's own article. -- (WT-en) DanielC 08:54, 29 May 2007 (EDT)

Outcome: redirected to Triglav National Park – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)


Outcome: kept and added a "merge into Southern Africa" tag... there's a lot of info here, so don't want to delete it to make way for a redirect – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Nathpa jhakriEdit

Hydroelectric dam in the middle of nowhere, do they even accept visitors? Might be worth a bullet point in the nearest city, but I have no idea where that would be. (WT-en) Jpatokal 22:22, 30 May 2007 (EDT) Outcome: deleted... I've been to this plant, and it's definitely not any sort of attraction and doesn't warrant a mention in the Shimla or Kinnaur guides – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:10, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

  • Delete. Nearest reasonably well-known city is Shimla.
  • Delete. If there is a dam, there is a lake and so the possibility for recreational facilities, but I have no personal recollection of there being here any nor can I find anything on the web, so delete with possible bullet on 'Get out' section for Shimla.
