If you think a page should be deleted, read the deletion policy to make sure.
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

Before nominating: checks and alternatives [change source]

Prior to nominating article(s) for deletion, please be sure to:

A. Read and understand these policies and guidelines
  1. The Wikipedia deletion policy, which explains valid grounds for deletion.
  2. The main four guidelines and policies that inform deletion discussions: notability (WP:N), verifiability (WP:V), reliable sources (WP:RS), and what Wikipedia is not (WP:NOT)
  3. Subject-specific notability guidelines, which can be found at Category:Wikipedia notability guidelines
B. Carry out these checks
  1. Confirm that the article does not meet the criteria for quick deletion.
  2. If there are verifiability, notability or other sourcing concerns, take reasonable steps to search for reliable sources. (See step D.)
  3. Review the article's history to check for potential vandalism or poor editing.
  4. Read the article's talk page for previous nominations and/or that your objections haven't already been dealt with.
  5. Check "What links here" in the article's sidebar, to see how the page is used and referenced within Wikipedia.
  6. Check if there are interlanguage links, also in the sidebar, which may lead to more developed and better sourced articles. Likewise, search for native-language sources if the subject has a name in a non-Latin alphabet (such as Japanese or Greek), which is often in the lede.
C. Consider whether the article could be improved rather than deleted
  1. If the article can be fixed through normal editing, then it is not a candidate for RfD.
  2. If the article was recently created, please consider allowing the contributors more time to develop the article.
  3. If an article has issues try first raising your concerns on the article's talk page, with the main contributors, and/or adding a cleanup tag, such as {{notability}}, {{hoax}}, {{original research}}, or {{advert}}; this ensures readers are aware of the problem and may act to fix it.
  4. If the topic is not important enough to merit an article on its own, consider merging or redirecting to an existing article. This should be done particularly if the topic name is a likely search term.
D. Search for additional sources, if the main concern is notability
  1. The minimum search expected is a normal Google search, a Google Books search, a Google News search, and a Google News archive search; Google Scholar is suggested for academic subjects.
  2. If you find a lack of sources, you've completed basic due diligence before nominating. However, if a quick search does find sources, this does not always mean an RfD on a sourcing basis is unwarranted. If you spend more time examining the sources, and determine that they are insufficient, e.g., because they only contain passing mention of the topic, then an RfD nomination may still be appropriate.
  3. If you find that adequate sources do appear to exist, the fact that they are not yet present in the article is not a proper basis for a nomination. Instead, you should consider citing the sources, or at minimum apply an appropriate template to the page that flags the sourcing concern. Common templates include {{unreferenced}}, {{refimprove}}, {{third-party}}, {{primary sources}} and {{one source}}.

Discussed deletion[change source]

Put the deletion tag on the article.
  1. Click "Change source" at the top of the page to be deleted.
  2. In the edit box, add this tag: {{rfd|REASON}}. Put it at the top of the page, above the rest of the text. Then, replace the text "REASON" with a short reason why the page should be deleted. Do not be too specific here. You can add more details on the discussion page (see below).
    • It is a good idea to write a change summary to let others know what you are doing. You can say "nominating for deletion", "requesting deletion", or something like that.
  3. Click "Save changes" at the bottom to save the page with the deletion tag at the top.
    • You can also check the "Watch this page" check box to add the page to your watchlist. This lets you know if the page for deletion has been changed. If the deletion tag is removed any time before the discussion is closed, it should be put back.
Create a discussion page.
  1. If the deletion tag has been added to the page, a box should appear at the top of the article with a link saying "Click here to create a discussion page!" Click that link.
  2. You should be taken to a page starting with "Creating Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/..." along with the current year and the name of the article to be deleted. In the edit box, the following tag should have already been added: {{RfD/Preload/Template}} . Replace the text PLACE REASON HERE with a more detailed reason why the page should be deleted.
    • It is helpful to include links to the various policy pages about Wikipedia (that begin with Wikipedia:). Here are some examples of this: "This article is [[Wikipedia:COMPLEX|not easy to understand]]" or "Not a [[Wikipedia:notable|notable]] topic''. This will make others more aware of why the page is not acceptable under Wikipedia's policies.
  3. Click "Save changes" to save the new discussion page when you are done.
    • A change summary you can write for this page is "creating discussion page", "starting deletion discussion", or something like that.
    • As with the page for deletion, you can check the "Watch the page" box. This will let you know if someone else has replied to your discussion.
List it here
  1. Copy the title of the discussion page to the clipboard. You can do this by dragging the mouse over the text from "Wikipedia" to the end of the page title to highlight it, then right-clicking and selecting "Copy".
  2. Go to the list of deletion requests, and click "change source" beside the words "Current deletion request discussions".
  3. At the top of the list of discussions, paste the title from the clipboard (right-click and select "Paste"). Add a pair of curly brackets before and after the title to make a template that will copy the content of the discussion page onto the main deletion page, like this:
    {{Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/(name of page to be deleted)}}
  4. Finally, click "Save changes" to add the discussion to the list. If the page saves successfully, you should see your deletion discussion at the top of the list. And that's it!

Quick deletion[change source]

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 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 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.

Discussion[change source]

  • Several issues point to this being a hoax. The article only exists here and the Thai wiki. Google hits for the term "Cartoon Network Thailand" all point to the CM themed waterpark in Thailand, Cartoon Network Amazone. No hits for a television channel. The article lists the launch date in both 1994 and 1999. The 1994 date listed is the same as that for CN Southeast Asia. The same is true for the channels it broadcasts on. Both CN-SA and CN-T broadcast pm ch. 453 and 499 on the same provider. The whole lot is unsoursed so no help there. The external link on the thai CNT page point to CNAsia and an archived page that has nothing of note. While there is enough cross-over to hint at them being the just a mixup of the same thing under 2 seperate names, the Thai page for CN-T notes that it is not the same as CN-SA. --Creol(talk) 06:42, 22 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Discussion[change source]

  • This channel does not seem to exist. Sky One was originally a product of Sky UK but was replaced a while back. There is no sign of it being relaunched in Latin America. It says the programming is from Sky UK, but the shows listed (and linked to es:wiki) are of Mexican and S Korean origins. Its listed launch date is the same as the article creation date. The article is almost certainly a hoax and likely QD bait as such, but RfD'd just in case. (QD away if so inclined) --Creol(talk) 13:19, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Painting by a painter from Northern Italy (1881-1941, I think), who became known for his portraits, starting about 1910. Amisani was really well known in his time. This one was donated to a museum in Brescia, the second city of Lombardy (About 200k people in the city proper, 350-500k in the urban area). Painting was donated to the museum there in 1966 (museum is part of a world heritage site). In short: I see no reason to delete this. --Eptalon (talk) 21:33, 17 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Comment: I agree that the painter is notable, but I have yet to see anything that makes this specific painting notable. As Blissyu pointed out, there isn't a lot on Google, which makes me wonder if it is notable enough for inclusion.

  • Keep The others should have never been deleted. The sex of a person is very defining of them in just about every profession. It is highly POV not to categorize as such. It is very likely that someone would search for all people of a given profession by their sex. Its time we stop the crusade about hiding female professionals in amongst their male counterparts and start the work of splitting them back out. I am frankly quite shocked at how sexist these moves are. -Djsasso (talk) 12:47, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @Djsasso: I can see how a person's gender is defining of them in professions that separate the genders, as many sports do. But would you please clarify how it is defining for a linguist? -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:05, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Categories are about finding something, a defining characteristic is anything that distinctly separates them, it is very likely a reader might want to search for all female linguists. Thus it is a defining category. Like it or not, all professions distinguish people by gender. It doesn't mean things are done different or that one is better than the other, but every single profession does distinguish between genders. Often to try to increase female numbers in that profession or in less professions increase male. The sciences for example which is the above linked discussion are one that very much distinguishes male and female scientists, almost any article about a female scientist will bring up that fact, often to encourage younger females to enter the sciences. (now some of the categories in that discussion were taking it too far by subdividing by nationality and gender at the same time so they should go, but just by gender is perfectly acceptable and I would argue necessary). -Djsasso (talk) 12:56, 17 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • I don't see in what way a linguist is different from the other scientists, the request for which was closed a few days ago (as delete). Yes, women use the language differently from men, and in that way women linguists may have a different approach. Sorry, I don't see a reason to differentiate by gender/sex here. While I concede that the sex (which people usually don't choose) is defining for their professional life, it does not make a difference from the outside view. So how long till we have the categories for the female firefighters, female construction workers, male nurses, and male midwives? - We are talking about building an encyclopedia, we should talk about gendering where this makes sense. - delete--Eptalon (talk) 00:36, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  •  Delete - Not notable (and the above link has good arguments about the lack of notability). 89.8.150.104 (talk) 23:16, 12 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep - The article has her net worth and film references.
  • Delete Really nothing here to show notability. No reliable third party sources.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:36, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

List of gay, lesbian or bisexual people: A[change source]

List of gay, lesbian or bisexual people: A (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Auntof6 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: I propose deleting this page. We have this list for LGBT people with names starting with A, but none for the other letters of the alphabet. We could create the other lists, but I think that on this wiki, categories work better for this subject. Auntof6 (talk) 03:11, 12 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  •  Keep - I think it is okay for us to have the list. The list of "Last name: A", has language links to English wiki and around 5 other wikis. (If the "A list" gets kept, then my plan is to write the "Z list" article.) 89.8.150.104 (talk) 12:57, 12 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    OK, but the fact that it's linked to other wikis is not a reason to keep it. -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:18, 12 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    If the list is about something notable, then the notability is maybe enough to keep the list. 89.8.150.104 (talk) 19:25, 12 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • I think that categories work better indeed. There's a huge difference between gay people (Only inteterested in same-sex romantic relationships) and bisexual people (also interested in such relationships) (note: I don't make a difference between gays and lesbians here). Categories also have the benefit that an article can have more than one category, and that we don't need a list for each letter (or part of the alphabet). If we are talking about US Americans I would expect there to be more gays/lesbians/bisexuals in the larger urban centres (NY, Calfifornia), and the more rural parts to be more conservative (read: less accepting to non-standard gender roles of a family made of a breadwinning man, and a caring wife loking after the children. Having categories gives us another benefit: If we find out that most turn out to be from (say) Salt-Lake City (bad example: Mormons are traditionalist), or Denver, we can then create a subcategory to reflect that. That's a bit more difficult with lists. I will also point out: This is a small wiki. Lists have high maintenance costs, Categories have a low maintenance cost. In short: we are probably better of with (one or more) categories. So: delete--Eptalon (talk) 21:35, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    High maintenance costs indeed, not only in trying to keep the list comprehensive, which may be impossible, but in making sure we have evidence that the people belong on the list (see en:Wikipedia:Categorization/Ethnicity, gender, religion and sexuality#Sexuality. -- Auntof6 (talk) 23:18, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep Just because other similar articles haven't been created yet does not mean this one should be deleted. This is clearly a notable and viable list article. Categories and lists are not mutually exclusive. List articles at not just for navigation. Notable topics should not be deleted. -Djsasso (talk) 21:46, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Delete. Very clear delete for the reasons given by Ep. Macdonald-ross (talk) 07:43, 15 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Delete Per nom. This is what categories are meant for. Hockeycatcat (talk) 07:45, 15 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Keep This has gone through the very tough requirements on EN-Wiki and exists in multiple languages and it is most definitely notable. I don't think there is any sensible reason to delete it. Blissyu2 (talk) 08:44, 15 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @Blissyu2: Notability is not always the main reason to delete an article, and it doesn't matter if an article exists in multiple languages, we can do things differently if there's good reason to. --Ferien (talk) 14:23, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Delete - Per Eptalon. We aren't enWP and categories suffice the purpose of the list. Griffinofwales (talk) 12:13, 15 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    The list can do things that Categories can not: One can sort by time period. Or one can sort by nationality.--If one wants to know about Lesbians by country, then the List is helpful, but Category:Lesbians is not helpful.--I am leaning towards Keep. 89.8.143.29 (talk) 14:06, 15 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Keep per Djsasso, categories and lists aren't mutually exclusive. Lists may be a bit harder to maintain but we can always get the latest data from the English Wikipedia if the list gets out of date. --Ferien (talk) 14:26, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Delete Per nom. Use categories. --Gotanda (talk) 11:49, 19 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep I think in this case, the "hard to maintain" argument looses out to the fact that we simply can't delete good content just because it requires work. I'd argue lists like this probably actually take less work to maintain than BLPs, as there isn't much simplification needed to add or remove names. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:33, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, they can be less work than articles—whether BLPs or BD(eceased)Ps—to maintain, but lists like this are equivalent to categories, not articles, because they don't try to give enough info for even a stub. All of the fields included in this list's table are things that can be indicated by categories. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:45, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
