Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Exit 38 climbing area

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nominated for speedy, but the general consensus is it is not a CSD, so I bring it here for debate. It was at an overly broad, undescriptive title "Exit 38", so I moved it. It also was a single sentence that was a bit weak in context, so I've made it more clear what it is referring to. The remaining questions are, is it encyclopedic, and is it notable enuf to be be included. Approximately 3,000 hits for "exit 38" climbing. No vote. Niteowlneils 23:46, 20 Aug 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete: In my opinion, it's too local. Seattle is very much online. I'm sure that various Chattahoochee rest stops and parks in Atlanta would get so many hits, but I would deem them local interest. With all the metro guides and visitor's bureau stuff online, hits are going to be artificially inflated for all recreational areas. In this case, Google testing is probably inaccurate.

    • Clarification: For me, the question is whether a park is nationally or state-recognized (for parks) and whether an attraction or recreational area is known by its name to people from another region. E.g. do people in Portland know this term/place? (Olympia would, but that doesn't count.) I.e. regional vs. purely local, to me. Geogre 13:18, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Also 2080 hits for "'I-90' 38 North Bend", most of which seem to bring up this topic promptly. Dunno. Seems non-notable for an encyclopedia, unless someone has more to say about it than that its a place hikers and climbers park. Weak delete. -- Jmabel 02:30, Aug 21, 2004 (UTC)
  • Looks non-notable, unless it has some sort of geologic or historic significance that sets it apart from any other parking lot near a cliff. Delete. -FZ 13:40, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Judging by the other contributions from this IP address, another product of the Dartmouth CS assignment, presumably by a student who hails from the greater Seattle area and is interested in hiking. --Michael Snow 18:41, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)
