Wikivoyage:Park guide status

From Wikivoyage
Jump to: navigation, search

This page describes the criteria for determining the article status of National Park guide articles.

Status Name Description
0 Vfd Not an article, with a page name that has little or no prospect of being turned into an article or being redirected to an article. While it may contain information, that information does not meet Wikivoyage's goals.
1 Stub An article with little or no information in it, or not formatted even close to the manual of style. An article with no template would have this status.
2 Outline Has at least the normal introductory paragraph (this can be as short as a single sentence describing where it is, in which country) 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 a couple of attractions with directions, information on fees and permits and accommodation, as well as a Get in section describing all of the typical ways to get there.
4 Guide Gives you different choices for which parts of the park to visit, and information on multiple attractions and things to do. Listings and layout closely match the manual of style. There are clear explanations of multiple ways to get in, multiple accommodation listings (if applicable), clear information on getting around, and some suggestions for where to go next, with one-liner descriptions.
5 Star Has a tourist-style map, in Wikivoyage style with modifiable vector source, showing all the main attractions, eateries, accommodations, visitor centers and routes between them. 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.
