"A planned tower. Wikipedia is not a crystal ball". This is a consolidation of all these into one entry. Sjakkalle 07:15, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Delete, if and when they are built they could be valid articles, but not now. Dsmdgold 13:15, Apr 5, 2005 (UTC)
Comment The Central Missouri tower was, in fact, built and is in operation. I've made it into a redirect to Central Missouri State University#KMOS-TV, which mentions the tower. Methinks whoever created the article wasn't being very punctilious about fact-checking. Dpbsmith(talk) 18:30, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Plan to write an article about them if they're ever built. Jayjg (talk) 22:44, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Delete Normally I would say merge into another document but I'm not sure what document these would go to... --Fuzzball!(talk) 01:48, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
No crystal ball is being used here. We talk about possible future events all the time ... we write about the next month's UK general election, the Beijing Olympics, even the Freedom Tower :). So the nomination is really about importance, and as usual whilst planned radio masts are unimportant to most of us, I can imagine quite a few people care about them. Merge into List of planned radio masts anyone? Pcb21|Pete 07:50, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
The UK general election and the Bejing Olympics are specific events that will happen on a specific schedule in the future. These towers are towers that are planned for construction at some nebulous point in the future. The freedom tower is a better analogy, but in that case, it has been covered extensively in the media to the point that is encyclopedically notable. I would argue that the freedom tower is the exception to the rule. Meanwhile, these towers are not yet built, and therefore violate the rule that Wikipedia is not a crystal ball.
