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.

Discussions[change | change source]

  • 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 If the reasons given in the nomination are fixed by changing, the nomination can be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an administrator.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.

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]

  • See en:City farm, for an article on the subject. Ours might need a little work, but can probably be converted into a keepable article. --Eptalon (talk) 09:37, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
That page also lacks sources. Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:34, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
The most similar article is en:Urban agriculture, which is reasonably well sourced. The relevant sources from that article can/should be added here. Thbsp (talk) 16:08, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Amulet of Thailand[change | change source]

Amulet of Thailand (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Arfæst Ealdwrítere has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: There is a huge amount wrong with this page. It is written from a non-neutral point of view, there are many unsubstantiated claims, the page at points reads like an advertisement, it inappropriately uses the second person 'you', and it includes a how-to section. Arfæst Ealdwrítere talk! 13:53, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete. The "of Thailand" part of the title makes this a bad candidate for a redirect. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:48, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. Essentially an advertisement. Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:18, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

JTTW[change | change source]

JTTW (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Rus793 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Notability; insufficient information to tell what this is. A mix of ABC and CBS programming. Also US TV stations begin with 'K' if west of the Mississippi, 'W' if east, with few exceptions. This gives no clue of what country it's in. Rus793 (talk) 12:56, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Common worker (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Arfæst Ealdwrítere has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Article created by The Liberation, a known vandal. This redirect was created as part of a wider pro-communist crusade against Wikipedia. Arfæst Ealdwrítere talk! 03:32, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Discussion[change | change source]

  • Delete. But only for the reason it's not a good alternative name for communism. Rus793 (talk) 04:19, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. Yeah, being created by a vandal and the reason it was created aren't reasons to delete. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:55, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
  • At the moment, this redirects to Communism. I am not sure how Communism -related the term really is. The Communist Manifesto (by Marx and Engels) does not seem to contain the term. Unless we can provide some probable, common-sense link from one term to the other, there is no reason to provide a link. So, unless someone provides a reason for linking, we should remove that link. --Eptalon (talk) 09:21, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Discussion[change | change source]

  • Comment. The reason a page was created and the fact that it was created by a vandal are not reasons to delete. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:56, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. As a redirect it is not an alternative title for Communism, otherwise it's a dicdef. Rus793 (talk) 00:37, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. Not an appropriate redirect. Might make an appropriate page as a Simple version of the English wiki page. Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:31, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
  • While this term has a stronger connection to Communism than the one above, there are still other valid uses, which are unrelated to Communism: If two people are members of a political party or social group, they might call each other comrade; this is also the case, if they work in the same company, for example. Which in turn means, that likely we need a disambiguation page, and cannot simply redirect. --Eptalon (talk) 09:29, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
I have replaced the redirect with a stub, feel free to append...--Eptalon (talk) 09:35, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Discussion[change | change source]

  • Comment. Delete. The references do say that a person of this name won a prize, but a question arises of whether the prize(s) amount to notability. I can't recover any independent information about this person. Her name is not given in full, there is no account of her life or family. There is a very brief article about her in Malayam wiki -- now all we have to do is find someone who can read it! Well, it is not up to us to prove notability, and in this case even the basic data about the subject is not confirmed. Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:12, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:20, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
  • If there is a way to generalize the content (as in: "There are different techniques to make dolls, the common ones are...") we could probably add a section to the Doll page. The problem I see though is that there are different kinds of dolls, and the production is specific to the type. In any case, this page should be deleted or redirected to Doll, if some of the content is re-used. --Eptalon (talk) 09:08, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
