Further question about events[edit]

Swept in from the pub

There is an event in Padasjoki, Päijänne Tavastia, Finland called Nakukymppi, where people run or walk 10 kilometres nude. It is free of charge, not very formal or serious and has been mentioned in the Finnish media several times. I would add it to Wikivoyage, but Wikivoyage doesn't have an article about Padasjoki in the first place. Should I create one just to mention this event? JIP (talk) 21:28, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Also, there is FinnCon, Finland's biggest and most famous sci-fi convention, and the only major sci-fi convention in the world to be completely free of charge. However, there isn't a single place it's held in. It varies annually, between Helsinki, Turku, Tampere and Jyväskylä. How should it be added? JIP (talk) 21:35, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Regarding the first thing: Do you have or may there ever be put enough in the eat sleep do or see section for it to merit an article? If yes: plunge forward! If no ask yourself the question: can you sleep there? That is (or used to be) the primary rule of determining what is and what is not an article.

There is a hotel in Padasjoki, a couple of kilometres away from the event site. I've never actually slept there but I've visited it several times. Other than that, I don't know of any services in Padasjoki. There is a car service station with a restaurant and a bus connection to Helsinki, also a couple of kilometres away. That's all I know of the whole municipality. But from what I've seen of it, it's full of beautiful Finnish rural scenery. JIP (talk) 21:42, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
I would say: Go ahead than. If others disagree, let them have a vote for deletion. We have after all articles on places like Hahn Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:13, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, absolutely start the article. At worst, a decision might be made later to merge it with some other article, but the information you put up will remain. And it seems to me, the scenery would be enough of a reason for an article - see whether you can find beautiful photos on Commons to post thumbnails of.

How do I create a new article on Wikivoyage anyway? I know how to create a new article on Wikipedia, I must have created thousands, not all of which survive, but on Wikivoyage the articles seem to be strictly structured with a defined sequence of sections. Is there a tool available or do I have to do everything myself? JIP (talk) 22:21, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Everything by yourself :) But I'm sure other's will help you fill in any gaps if you ask. Andrewssi2 (talk) 22:23, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
There is a tool where upon creating a new article you can select e.g. "city" which gives you the template. Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:43, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
In terms of FinnCon, I would add it to the country level article in the 'Do' section : Finland#Do Andrewssi2 (talk) 22:22, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
JIP, you can use {{smallcity_skeleton}} or click the "City" link on the create-new-page page. Powers (talk) 02:05, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
Article created for Padasjoki (Finland) - reformat/structure as desired - Matroc (talk) 03:04, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
I added information about Nakukymppi and Lomakeskus Telaranta. The latter was a bit hard to find on Wikivoyage's map, because according to Google Maps, it's located right at the shore of lake Parlammi, but according to Wikivoyage, lake Parlammi doesn't exist. It shows the much smaller lake Musta Parlammi on the other side of the road though, so I'm pretty sure I was looking at the right place. JIP (talk) 17:00, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
