Relevance to topic[edit]

Reference to a specific political organisation in South Africa (and its size) is strained and irrelevant to topic. At best there should be a see also: Shackdweller movement section BlandBaroque (talk) 10:57, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Same with Australia. Just call it a small, often primitive shelter or dwelling (not necessarily a fire hazard) , and leave the countries out of it. A shack is a shack the world over. --96.244.241.243 (talk) 02:22, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

ice fishing shacks of Canada and Northern USA[edit]

per. http://koendersmfg.com/fishing.htm ice fishing within shacks is a common sport of the region. needs to be added somewhere to the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gizziiusa (talkcontribs) 23:22, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Ice shack was a bolded alternative name in Ice shanty but without an incoming redirect, perhaps because Ice Shack was a redirect to a TV episode list. I've made a dab page to include the two meanings. And I've added a redirect from Ice fishing shack, the term used in the web page (advert) you linked above. PamD 07:59, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
And while looking at that article, I've added a hatnote to Darkhouse and a dab page entry at Ice house, to allow access by another couple of alternative names which were already bolded in the lead sentence. PamD 08:04, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Shack as in Holiday House[edit]

Shack has a related meaning in Australia. In Australia in most cases Shack refers to a holiday house with limited facilities, rather than referring to a primary house-hold or home to low socio-economic peoples. I'm not sure if this meaning exists else where?--TinTin (talk) 01:22, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
