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]

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 If the reasons given in the nomination are fixed by changing, the nomination can be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an administrator.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

List of characters in Maya the Bee[change | change source]

Discussion[change | change source]

  • I still update the chess articles, sporadically. Perhaps it's best if I host the page; though admittedly we don't have anyone else at present active on the chess pages. The page has some nice layout features, and is better than most project pages. So I suggest keep and move to a sub-page under my name. Then delete pages listed above. Macdonald-ross (talk) 13:51, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
As no other comments, I have moved it to my username, where it is a subpage. It can be closed now unless someone thinks differently. Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:10, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good. If you will update everything that links to the pages listed above to link to your new pages, we can delete the ones above (and the talk page) and I will withdraw this request. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:16, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
I think I've completed this, but please check! Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:42, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
It looks like the only thing that still needs updating is links to the redirect User:I-on/WikiProject Chess Userbox. I do think those should be changed, even though they're on other users' user pages.
You know, I said I would withdraw the request, but I think we should let it be closed as delete because we still want to delete the old pages. To follow protocol, I think we need a third admin to do the close because you and I were involved in the RfD. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:52, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
