:::{{ping|Jordz}}. I did ask the community before deciding to create geography articles. See [https://ceb.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Tubaan/Arkibo_10#Bot_projects_--_what_next.3F] and [https://ceb.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Tubaan/Arkibo_11#Bot_project_--_ready_to_run]. The community did not answer, but I did ask. You could have voiced your concerns at that time. [[Gumagamit:Lsj|Lsj]] ([[Hisgot sa Gumagamit:Lsj|talk]]) 10:43, 11 Nobiyembre 2017 (UTC)
 
Lsj, you should have practiced restraint. Anyway, moving forward, you know the inherent manageability issue of the sheer number of articles in the millions. You know quite well the technical side of this, like updating constantly changing data and info. It will take so much time and resources not only on your part but the whole contributors of wikipedia the world over. That's why I said that this is not sustainable. Again we are a very small online community and updating/editing/improving all those articles would be painstakingly cumbersome and slow, we're talking years or decades even. Unless we want a wikipedia that is trivial and dated or just a mirror repository of the contents of a geo database. Also, page creators/vandals and spammers will be so hard to catch hidden among the millions of pages.
<br>Secondly, for everyone's guidance and this is of paramount importance of what a wikipedia is - [[Wikipedia:Notabilidad|Notability]]. It simply means that an article should be notable to deserve a page entry on its own. Remember that our target audience/reader and contributors are the Cebuano-speaking people. Clicking on the random article button, will a reader be contented and amazed to spend time reading about a hill somewhere? As a contributor will you be proud of the content and the quality?
<br>I'm not for deletion of all Lsjbot-articles per se, notable geo features should be retained. But due to technical aspects, as I see it, this is quite tedious. My estimate is there are less than a million notable articles from the 4-million plus. But yes if Lsj can do something, to selectively choose geo entries, then no need for mass deletion. Btw, deletion of an article is not like it will be lost in wikispace forever, it's still there and can be undone with all its form (provided our wiki wont be closed). Thanks! :) [[Gumagamit:Jordz|Jordz]] ([[Hisgot sa Gumagamit:Jordz|talk]]) 07:56, 12 Nobiyembre 2017 (UTC)
