RfD close needed[change]

Could someone please close Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2015/Peace be upon him (Islam)? I can't, because I voted on it. I only ask because it has been getting vandalized. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:37, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Reiterating this request. StevenJ81 (talk) 19:47, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
@StevenJ81: That request was closed yesterday. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:31, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Yeah. Sorry. Was thinking it was the other one, which you closed yesterday (Wednesday). StevenJ81 (talk) 11:50, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

NP ... but ...[change]

NP, @Auntof6. I get it. But my point still holds: is there any way to emphasize the page WP:VIP more strongly up top? StevenJ81 (talk) 17:43, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

It's the first thing listed under "are you in the right place?". I'm not sure it warrants being emphasized more than the other things there. Maybe we could repeat the "are you in the right place" stuff in an edit notice for this page. Would that help? --Auntof6 (talk) 18:50, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Try it; couldn't hurt. (Just the question and the five bullets, or even the question and the two larger-type bullets.) You get a fair number of vandalism reports here, and whatever is currently on the page is not redirecting them to VIP. StevenJ81 (talk) 19:01, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
It is not really that big a deal to get it on this page either. -DJSasso (talk) 21:51, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

keeps writing no context in articles. --Softstarrs23 (talk) 01:05, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

All the articles this IP has created have been deleted, and the user has been warned. By the way, the template you put on the talk page was not used correctly. You can see the warning templates we use at Wikipedia:User talk page warnings. If you have come here from another Wikipedia, such as English Wikipedia, it would help you to know that many things work differently here. Take some time to look at how things are done and feel free to ask any questions you have. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:35, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
