No copyright problem[edit]

I noticed that a very large part of this article's content is copied verbatim from TripAdvisor, specifically from the "Nevis Traveler Articles -- Written for Travelers by Travelers". A linked list of all those articles is here:

The reason I recognized so much of the text is that I myself wrote it on TripAdvisor with a Nevis friend, several years ago! TripAdvisor owns the copyright to this material! Some parts of the St. Kitts article have the same exact problem. Invertzoo (talk) 00:11, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for bringing this up! Are there any particular sections that you can see are direct copyvios? --Nick talk 00:43, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please remove anything from the article that is a copyright violation, using the edit summary to note that the reason for the deletion is that it is a copyvio from Tripadvisor. Ideally, please also include a link to the source on TripAdvisor in the edit summary. Thanks for pointing this out. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:34, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry everyone, I was very tired when I posted the original complaint and as a result I simply did not realize that the article was virtually all content that I had written a year ago. I did not realize that I was just recognizing my own style and type of content. I do apologize for this daft error. I removed the copyvio tag.

Invertzoo, does this apply equally to the copyright tag at Saint Kitts? Texugo (talk) 16:24, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes it does in terms of the content not being copied from TripAdvisor. I will remove that tag also. Thanks. Invertzoo (talk) 17:11, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I think this article could use a sleep section. Since the island as a whole is rather undeveloped we might not need individual "town" articles, but ideally we should have listings for hotels and restaurants at some point. I'd say this is one of those places where it would probably be fine to include individual listings in the region article, or not? JuliasTravels (talk) 19:00, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh I definitely agree with you. This should be treated as a city article. It would be pointless to have it really be a region which includes a single city article that contains the majority of what there is to say about the island. I have redirected the pointless Charleston article here for that reason. Texugo (talk) 19:07, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I completely agree with both of you.

Would it be useful to have a "small islands template" that we could use instead of "small city" or "region" for articles like Ukulhas, etc? --118.93nzp (talk) 22:57, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think if any additional template is created, it should rather be a more general one. I've been trying to find good ways to deal with this repeatedly, for vast, undeveloped regions, for islands and for smaller developed rural areas with only 1 or 2 listings per settlement. The problem is quite similar really. There's not a huge amount of consistency between this kind of destinations now: some are put in a city article, some in a region one, some just collects listings in the usual sections, others have sections per "settlement". Which is more useful depends on the case, so maybe we shouldn't really be looking for a template but rather for a more general understanding of how to work with such places, and that we can be a bit creative with listings in region articles and such.

I started a Sleep section; I have had not had any experience with how this section is usually set up, so feel free to move stuff around or make suggestions. Thanks. Invertzoo (talk)
