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.
  1. 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|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.
  1. 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/2018/(name of page to be deleted)}}
  1. 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]

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 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]

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.
  • 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 source]

Why would you want to get it speedy deleted without having to check it's content. I feel its highly unfair to make predetermined jusegments due to:

1. This article was deleted because they was claim of no notability. This is after radical edits were made and independent sources included. Please check through.

2. The Admin did not bother to google check before deletion to confirm Wikipedia standard. Please do check.

I would like to have this article kept after edits are made. It feels highly unfair to make a deletion without due consideration.

Check and read links to view the character and individual notability than to make predetermined judgements. These sources of the character steam from reliable Namibian National sources. --— Preceding unsigned comment added by HPTP45 (talkcontribs) 14:18, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

@HPTP45: This is not a speedy deletion; that would be our quick deletion process. There is no predetermined judgment: the decision of whether to delete will be made based on the comments here, after this discussion is finished. We are doing due consideration, in the form of this discussion. --Auntof6 (talk) 15:30, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
  • This is a student leader who led a break-in, was prosecuted and is now out on bail. There is no independent assessment of him outside of these events. All sources are news items or press releases. All sources are local. We are an encyclopedia. Long term, he may be important, or he may not. Personally, I don't think we should have pages whose only justification is "he's in the news". We don't put footballers in for being in the news, and they are much more visible internationally. So delete Macdonald-ross (talk) 16:14, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • Keep Malls, especially large ones like this one are all but guaranteed to be covered in all kinds of sources from government documents to travel magazines to local papers (already one source from the Chicago Tribune, there are likely others from other papers). Major public buildings are rarely not notable. -DJSasso (talk) 01:06, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
    And just added a second ref to it. A quick look at the en.wiki page would have shown there was enough references to meet WP:GNG. Please remember to perform WP:BEFORE when thinking about nominating an article. -DJSasso (talk) 01:21, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep - A cursory internet search has revealed multiple news articles discussing the mall and even a few specifically about ownership and planning of the mall. While there is no specific Notability guideline available for physical buildings, I believe the mall is notable and should be kept. Operator873CONNECT 01:19, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Qyamat Ki Raat (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Gotanda has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: QD was declined. notability is not inherited. Also, looking at the actual Notability text what do we have? "Generally, an individual radio or television program is likely to be notable if it airs on a network of radio or television stations" These programs do not air (yet). "(either national or regional in scope), or on a cable television channel with a broad regional or national audience." There is no reliable information about the channel's distribution or viewership. "In either case, however, the presence or absence of reliable sources is more definitive than the geographic range of the program's audience alone." No reliable sources. Tellychakkar is not a reliable source. I tend to look at it that any program that is actually notable will attract media coverage in a reliable, general market publication--not just blogs and PR sites.

Discussion[change source]

  • It is an upcoming series, and except for a few names, which don't ring a bell, there is no information in the article. We get no possible summary of the theme covered/story, we get no background info; we don't even get a possible start date. Dallas is a TV series that aired from 1978 to 1991. I don't see much in the article/stub that would allow me to lean towards a keep. So: delete, if necessary/wanted recreate once the series has started. --Eptalon (talk) 06:52, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete. Television series aricle should have sufficient reliable sources to show their popularity or notability. Policy says "likely" and that doesn't mean they are automatically notable. The only way to prove notability is through reliable sources.-BRP ever 07:05, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep After a Google search, I found an article from the Times of India, India Today, as well as many unreliable entertainment blogs. The show seems highly anticipated by those Indian entertainment blogs, and as it has received coverage in those two reliable sources, I believe that constitutes notability. I've added the two reliable sources to the article. Vermont (talk) 10:00, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep Has a couple reliable sources which means it meets WP:GNG. -DJSasso (talk) 12:50, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Vermont has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Inappropriate redirects. These are topics that should be redlinks, not redirects. I would QD, although I'm not sure if there's consensus on it.

This refers to multiple redirects:

  • Comment: @Vermont: So that everyone doesn't have to research all these themselves, could you mention whether they are related, whether they all redirect to the same place, or are they unrelated, or what? Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:44, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
They all redirect to Bemani, and were created by cross-wiki vandals. Vermont (talk) 00:50, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:43, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete: Delete the article they redirect to because it doesn't show notability, and then the redirects will need to be deleted, too. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:43, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Gotanda has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: QD was declined. notability is not inherited. Also, looking at the actual Notability text what do we have? "Generally, an individual radio or television program is likely to be notable if it airs on a network of radio or television stations" These programs do not air (yet). "(either national or regional in scope), or on a cable television channel with a broad regional or national audience." There is no reliable information about the channel's distribution or viewership. "In either case, however, the presence or absence of reliable sources is more definitive than the geographic range of the program's audience alone." No reliable sources. Tellychakkar is not a reliable source. I tend to look at it that any program that is actually notable will attract media coverage in a reliable, general market publication--not just blogs and PR sites.

Kaleerein (TV series)[change source]

Kaleerein (TV series) (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

BRPever has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Has no reference and I don't see much claims, notable tv channel don't make tv-program (shows) automatically notable. BRP ever 11:13, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

I would like to add some more here,

The reason is almost similar. There is a bit similarity in content too. I am not aware of any such policies which indicates Notable television channels makes the program automatically notable. If someone has knowledge of any such policies please include in discussion. And about the indian channel, W:Direct-to-home television in India makes almost every channel available anywhere in india, ultimately meaning any tv-series or actors acting in almost every tv program is notable. Please feel free to cross anyone among them with suitable comment.

    • Thanks Ricky81682, there are so many articles there, it will take a lot of time to discuss, so I included only 10. And listing other will depend on the result of this RFD.-BRP ever 16:18, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Category:Establishments in London[change source]

Category:Establishments in London (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)· close request

Ricky81682 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: there is no set up for establishments at the city level (they are Category:History by city but not establishments nor disestablishments. It seems too granular. Adding the subcategories as well and suggest upmoving all them into the Category:Establishments in England structure (or really creating the establishments in England subcategory). That's easier that splitting the Category:Establishments in the United Kingdom into the separate countries.

  • In line with our general policy of limiting categories to the minimum necessary, this one should be deleted. Macdonald-ross (talk) 06:17, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
    • @Macdonald-ross: Well, I'm asking not for deletion so much as upmerge to either the current UK categories or a England category which exists as a subdivision of the UK ones. Actual deletion on its own will make it kinda necessary to re-categorize these again. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 09:56, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
