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

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|]] 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/2016/(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.

Druddigon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Probably hoax. It has no sources and exists on no other WMF project.

  • Primary schools are generally of little or no interest outside their particular neighbourhoods. Therefore pages on them need to show their notability with the usual kind of evidence. This one does not, so delete. Macdonald-ross (talk) 16:42, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Agrave Banks has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: An article on Malena Morgan, who is an even more popular porn star, was deleted twice on the English Wikipedia for not being notable.

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]

  • comment: I'm a little confused by the logic here. You're arguing that this should be deleted because a different article on the English Wikipedia was. However, THIS subject was kept per an AFD on the English Wikipedia in December 2015. Why compare it to another article when this article itself has already had judgment upon it? Only (talk) 12:49, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep Please see WP:WAX. The reason this one is notable is that she meets WP:PORNBIO in that she has won AVN awards. Not to mention there is an awful lot of references on her en page. Though admittedly I haven't gone through them all since I am at work. -DJSasso (talk) 12:51, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep per Djsasso. It is now sufficient, whereas it wasn't when I QD'd it.   — Jeff G. ツ 14:49, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment: The issue isn't whether Ms. Lust is popular, or even whether she is notable. The issue is whether the article shows notability. Besides that, if we're going to consider the fact that the article was deleted on enwiki, we have to look at why it was deleted there. If it was for lack of notability but this one shows notability, then that deletion has no bearing here. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:02, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

  •  Delete per nom. The author has yet to make a good page.   — Jeff G. ツ 23:32, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
    • Please note that the author is NOT the same as the teen sitcom article. The IP only edited this article which has existed since 2010. Only (talk) 00:19, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep Clearly notable topic and concept in culture. Only (talk) 00:19, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep, article needs work but the topic is notable and well-documented. It's a bit hard to find good sources since most book results are literally just books full of knock-knock jokes, but enwiki has several reliable sources that establish notability. –Juliancolton | Talk 03:53, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep Not sure if this is a serious nomination. Very well written about subject. -DJSasso (talk) 12:11, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • Delete. Unsubstantiated nonsense. Incidentally, this is a copy-paste from somewhere on the web: the format is RTF (rich text format) produced by control-copy over a source page. It reproduces the line-breaks and punctuation, but is not presented the same way as our source text. Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:28, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete - it has no references, isn't written from a neutral point of view, and is possibly a copyright violation. Not an article suitable for an encyclopedia. J991 17:31, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete as not appropriate for an encyclopedia and likely a copyvio. I checked to see if maybe "Colour astrology" was notable as a concept (even if total nonsense) and can find no evidence that this is the case. –Juliancolton | Talk 03:51, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • Comment. Pinging @Rowde: What do you have in mind going forward? StevenJ81 (talk) 18:32, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete. This is something we see regularly: a user has copied tables or templates, and starts a page with no -- or virtually no -- prose. I think these are essentially "no content" pages, because the missing prose is what makes a page meaningful. Templates and tables are not a substitute, just aids and add-ons to fill in details. Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:48, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete for sure. Honestly, this just looks like a dump of data taken from a site such as racing reference.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 02:32, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment It is a notable topic perhaps, but in its current state we can probably delete it. Or someone could take the couple minutes to turn it into an appropriate stub. -DJSasso (talk) 12:37, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Thank you to everyone for your remarks. If anyone is looking for something to work on, I have made a list of Medal of Honor recipients who do not have an article in any language, and turned it into a small WikiProject. I think these very suitable articles for anyone to create, since notability has been established, and the format is pretty straightforward. There is even a userbox and a barnstar.
