Then follow these instructions on how to request a page for deletion. To find more information on what discussed deletions and quick deletions are:
PLEASE READ THIS

Discussed deletion[change | change source]

Put the deletion tag on the article.
  1. Add this tag: {{rfd|REASON}} to the top of the page.
  2. Please use a change summary such as "nominated for deletion".
  3. Save the page.

Quick deletion[change | change source]

See also: Category:Deletion requests

If you think a page has nonsense content, add {{non}} to the top of the page.

If you think a page does not say why the subject is important, add {{notable}} to the top of the page.

If you think a page should be deleted per other quick deletion rules, add {{QD|reason}} to the top of the page.

Notifying the user[change | change source]

Generally, you should try to be civil and tell the user that created the page to join the discussion talking about the page. This can be done by adding {{subst:RFDNote|<page to be deleted>}} ~~~~ to the bottom of their talkpage.

  • The discussion is not a vote. Please make suggestions on what action to take, and support your suggestion with reasons.
  • Please look at the article before you make a suggestion. Do not make an opinion using only the information given by the nominator. Looking at the history of the article may help to understand the situation.
  • Please read other comments and suggestions. They may have helpful information.
  • Start your comments or suggestions on a new line. Start with * and sign after your comment by adding ~~~~ to the end. If you are responding to another editor, put your comment directly below theirs and make sure your comment is indented (using more than one *).
  • New users can make suggestions, but their ideas may not be considered, especially if the suggestion seems to be made in bad faith. The opinion of users who had an account before the start of the request may be given more weight or importance.
  • Suggestions by users using "sock puppets" (more than one account belonging to the same person) and IP addresses will not be counted.
  • Please make only one suggestion. If you change your mind, change your first idea instead of adding a new one. The best way to do this is to put <s> before your old idea and </s> after it. For example, if you wanted to delete an article but now think it should be kept, you could put: "Delete Quick keep".
  • If you would like an article to be kept, you can improve the article and try to fix the problems given in the request for deletion. If the reasons given in the nomination are fixed by changing, the nomination can be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an administrator.
  • Try to avoid confusing suggestions, such as delete and merge.

Remember: You do not have to make a suggestion for every nomination. You should think about not making a suggestion if:

  1. A nomination involves a topic that you do not know much about.
  2. Everyone has made the same suggestion and you agree with that suggestion.
  • All times are in UTC.

List of Roman sites in Spain (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Rus793 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: A long list of almost all red links; serves no purpose for readers. Should be moved to userspace or added to Wikipedia:Requested pages Rus793 (talk) 17:02, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Please discuss this request below, but keep in mind that you shouldn't vote on everything and that there may be options other than "keep" or "delete", such as merging.

Discussion[change | change source]

  • Comment. This is the same editor who created the problem articles about Spanish cathedrals recently. I have just moved two of his/her other articles to userspace and asked him/her to create future articles in userspace so they can be reviewed. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:28, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
If you want to quash this request and move this one to the same userspace that's perfectly OK with me. I just hadn't seen this many red links in an article recently. Rus793 (talk) 19:40, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. Not needed, and a category would do the job. We don't have such lists for other countries, and they are best served via UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which picks up the really important ones. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:16, 31 October 2014 (UTC)


This request is due to close on 17:02, 3 November 2014 (UTC), seven days after it was filed, although it may be closed earlier at the discretion of an administrator.

Auntof6 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: No indication of notability as an individual episode. Auntof6 (talk) 00:16, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Please discuss this request below, but keep in mind that you shouldn't vote on everything and that there may be options other than "keep" or "delete", such as merging.

Discussion[change | change source]

  • Delete. We've agreed that if a series is notable that doesn't mean individual episodes are notable. Each episode has to show notability if it is to be a separate page. This one does not. Macdonald-ross (talk) 07:12, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
It helps others if you explain your reasons. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:06, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
