Is this article redundant?[edit]

It seems not to fit in with the rest of the geographical hierarchy for the region. ~ 203.144.143.4 08:19, 24 January 2008 (EST)

I dug deeper and became 100% convinced that it's 100% redundant, hence the de-linking and conversion to a disambiguation page. ~ 58.8.14.82 09:19, 24 January 2008 (EST)

Move[edit]

I moved the Kham article to this title and modified the text so we could have redirects for all three old provinces pointing here. Pashley (talk) 03:59, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Tibetan Empire is currently a redirect to Old Tibetan provinces. I'm inclined to think that should be reversed. Other opinions? Pashley (talk) 00:32, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
That seems logical. Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:28, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Done. Pashley (talk) 08:41, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

Region or topic?[edit]

User:Soumya-8974 just changed this from Wikivoyage:Extraregion to travel topic. I want to change it back. Other opinions? Pashley (talk) 06:27, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Well, the Tibetan Empire no longer exists, so that's a strike against it being an extraregion, isn't it? What's the advantage of treating it as an extraregion? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:21, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
Geographically, it is a region. It is certainly not a travel topic as that term was originally used, for information relevant to multiple destinations e.g. altitude sickness or bargaining.
On the other hand, the Roman, Persian, Chinese, Mongol & Mughal empires all have travel topic articles. Pashley (talk) 16:34, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
If we keep it as a travel topic, the examples at Wikivoyage:Extraregion have to be tweaked to delete this one. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:53, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
There's no reason for this to be an extraregion, because the Tibetan Empire doesn't exist anymore. It should be an historical travel topic, like Roman Empire, Imperial China et al.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 11:57, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
But as there is no travel information here -- sites to visit, museums, etc. -- it isn't a travel topic either. It's just an unreferenced encyclopedia article. The reader would be better off with w:Tibetan Empire. Most other travel topic articles have information on specific sites and museums. Ground Zero (talk) 02:36, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
