Appropriate external links[edit]

Somebody -I'm guessing and administrator- has put upo a sign to prohibit the formation of more external links emanating from the South Padre Island, Texas article.

I suggest that several links be formed in order to further complete this article. Most of them are official representatives of the city (commerce, tourism, etc.)

Complying to the notice set in the article, I first mention the links in this discussion page, so a Wikipedia administrator reviews them and may agree to let them be formed on the article itself.

They are:
South Padre Island Travel
South Padre Island Chamber of Commerce
Town of South Padre Island
South Padre Island Spring Break
My Padre
South Padre International Music Festival

Thank you.

I would say the first three would be appropriate external links for this article. The last three would be inappropriate according to WP:EL. Postoak 05:16, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
My opinion is the same as Postoak's on this one. Also please note that the question is also posted to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Texas#South Padre Island... Can I put up Links.3F so hopefully we will get a few more opinions. Johntex\talk 06:51, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
It would be very good if we had more references here (instead of simple external links). I'll see what I can find. - Bevo 21:46, 16 May 2007 (UTC)


A small section about the causeway and its predecessors might be interesting and appropriate. I'll add that when I have a chance.


I just love those Geolinks tags! For this article we have {{Geolinks-US-cityscale|26.111935|-97.169587}} - Bevo 22:52, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
