VFD Discussion[edit]

  • Delete. A contentious (and constantly changing) administrative division in the Philippines and NOT a useful article or division from the travellers point of view. -- (WV-en) Alice 14:00, 29 September 2012 (CEST)
  • Comment - It does seem to be a mix and match of a region that makes no sense from a traveller's perspective. How would you propose we divide the regions then? Would Palawan and some surrounding islands become a new region, Western Islands or something? JamesA >talk 14:34, 29 September 2012 (CEST)
From a traveller's perspective and because of their relatively pristine eco-systems, Palawan warrants its own region - along with perhaps a new region of "Muslim lands" incorporating the autonomous region of Muslim Mindanao and the Badjao islands. But, simplest and to avoid edit wars and newbie mistakes, would be to leave the tourist regions more or less as the current map shows: http://wts.wikivoyage.org/wiki/File:Map_of_Philippines.png with just 3 tourist regions-- (WV-en) Alice 14:59, 29 September 2012 (CEST)
The map can be easily edited if necessary. JamesA >talk 15:03, 29 September 2012 (CEST)
  • It is a likely search term, so shouldn't be nominated for deletion. If anything, it should be redirected to Philippines. That discussion can take place on the article's Talk page. --Globe-trotter (talk) 03:00, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
Yes, definitely redirect. I do not know the area well enough to be sure where to; Philippines seems a reasonable initial choice. Pashley (talk) 06:29, 16 October 2012 (CEST)

Result: Redirected to Philippines.

Extra region[edit]
