Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ludewa

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Ludewa was proposed for deletion. This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion. This page is no longer live. Further comments should be made on the article's talk page rather than here so that this page is preserved as an historic record. The result of the debate was keep.

That page is not in english. It seems that it is about a school. I fear that even after translation, it is still a vfd, so before a I slap a {{notenglish}} on it, I'd like to ask here first. What do you guys think? Sander123 13:01, 15 Dec 2004 (UTC)

  • good call, delete. --fvw* 13:32, 2004 Dec 15 (UTC)
  • It's a brief description about a school district in Tanzania, which has a hospital and boarding school. It doesn't seem particularly notable. Delete. [[User:Livajo|Ливай | ]] 15:47, 15 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Abstain for now, since it seems to be an encyclopedic topic. If it is at least turned into an English geo-stub by the end of VfD, I will vote keep. [[User:Livajo|Ливай | ]] 23:28, 15 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, doesn't appear notable, from what I gather from English cognates. --Spangineer 16:12, Dec 15, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, offers no evidence of notability, wiki isn't a directory. Keep, I was wrong. Wyss 11:31, 16 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Strong keep. Ludewa is a district in Tanzania, not just a "school district", with a population of 130,000 (as of 2002,see [1]). That certainly seems notable to me. This page can be made into an adequate geography-stub and deserves a chance on Wikipedia:Pages needing translation. I'm also willing to translate it if this survives VFD.

  • Extreme keep. Geographic regions (cities, counties, prefectures) are extremely encyclopedic. —[[User:Radman1|RaD Man (talk)]] 10:35, 16 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep Geographical district of 130,000 with capital of the same name having 10,000 people. It has a representative in the Tanzanian parliament. Sietse has said he will translate it so put it in the request for translation.Capitalistroadster 11:30, 16 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Strong keep, reasons stated above. [[User:GRider|GRider\talk]] 21:04, 16 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep, of course. Props to Sietse for establishing notability and volunteering, and to Spangineer, Wyss and Livajo for reconsidering and revoting. Samaritan 02:22, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Transwiki to German Wikipedia and delete. - Andre Engels 11:48, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
