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|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.
  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/2020/(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]

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.

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Contested quick deletion. What we have is a one sentence stub; the article on EnWP is similar tro what we have. The one in Arabic wikipedia seems to be longer. If article remains like this, I see no option but to delete. Going through RfD to also provide a way to add content, to perhaps make this article keepable. As to search results, Wikipedia is the first hit, which points to possible notability issues.

  • As to the notability: The article exists in 28 other Wikipedias. As to the references: The EnWP article has some references, which could probably be copied. As to the case: The father of the girl suffered from paranoia,and was an alcoholic. --Eptalon (talk) 17:54, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • We might be looking at a different spelling/transliteration. Also, there is an article in French Wikipedia. Note however, that they spell it 'Parisos'. In the Russian language Wikipedia there even seems to be an image...--Eptalon (talk) 20:23, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Look, here and here it’s spelled “Parissos”: [1][2]107.242.117.8 (talk) 09:18, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

References

This points to a classic transliteration issue; if the article is kept, we likely need a redirect from the less common to the more common spelling. --Eptalon (talk) 21:45, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

The thing is ,in the English sources name of the kingdom spelled "Parissos" with double "s". And the reason for that is even it written in Armenian with single "s" it's pronounced as double "s".107.242.117.31 (talk) 04:49, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

It's generally doesn't matter under what spelling to keep the article, with double or single "s", but article must be kept. All references sources are very credible.107.242.117.31 (talk) 05:12, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: When searching on google, the EnWP article of this person is in the first spot. This often points to the fact that there may be a problem of encyclopedic notability. Also reading through the article, I get the impression this person does what he was educated for; Supervising students and leading exercies for a lecture is something often done by (lead) assistant lecturers at Universities in Europe. I also do not see a doctorate/PhD or habilitation on this CV type article. Doctorates and habilitations is what many universities require for a full professorship. I therefore propose we delete this article. Comments? Eptalon (talk) 09:06, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

  • There are some reliable sources like My Republica and The Himalayan Times and in Nepal, the accomplishments mentioned can be considered somewhat significant. I think it's borderline notable so keep. Thanks--BRP ever 23:12, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
  •  Delete. Person is not even qualified by general standards: appointments in astrophysics (etc) require PhD even for junior posts. This is a cv-type advert of the person, and as general policy this should be deprecated. Of course, astronomy in Nepal no doubt is in its early stages, but a person has to meet the general prevailing standards. It's not enough to say "I'm notable in my own backyard".

  • Redirect to List of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure characters. While I don't think deletion should be used as cleanup here, it so happens that this character does not appear to have significant coverage from an out-of-universe perspective, so I would be supportive of a redirect due to failing notability criteria.

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Contested quick deletion (A4 - Notability). The references provided are social media sites; they are neither independent, nor do they provide reliable sources. In short: we are talking about someone in his early twenties, who "promotes music". In addition to the notability issuees, we may also look at a conflict of interest: Page was mainly edited by a single purpose account (who didn't edit any other pages). RfD is to give all interested parties a chance to express their opinions. Personally, I do not currently see a reason to keep the article in question. Eptalon (talk) 08:41, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Carlos Maza (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: American journalist, born in 1988 to immigrants from Cuba. Person is openly gay, and there seems to have been a case of him being harrassed or insulted for being gay. Looking at Google, seems to have been more of a social media craze than anything else. In my book, this is a person doing the job he was educated for. So, despite him having an EnWp article, I propose we get rid of our article. Thoughts? Eptalon (talk) 18:10, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • Well that’s definitely a fair point. Really what it was that led me to create the page was that the article on Steven Crowder by necessity included a reference to the kerfuffle with Carlos Maza. The description of the details thereof were not in Crowder’s page and I was disinclined to incorporate them therein as they were not really about Steven Crowder they were about Carlos Maza. I therefore checked the English Wikipedia and found that it indeed had an article on Maza which led me to conclude that the creation of an article here was appropriate. That is the reason for this article’s existence. I hope this addresses your concerns. If not I understand your reasoning. Thank you 198.200.115.29 (talk) 20:34, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
    As you seem to know the case better than I do (and no, I am not against gay people): Disregard him bein harrassed by another person, for being gay; is there anything else that we can find that would make him notable? - If there is, then edit the article to include it. A request for deletion is not a death sentence for an article, it is simply an input. Many article get kept, when the closing admin decides...--Eptalon (talk) 22:44, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
     Delete per Eptalon. Carlos Maza is not notable outside of brief political/social media drama. If information about those events really had ought to be on Wikipedia, it should be on another article which has a reason to exist outside of the aforementioned. Beaneater (talk to me) (see my edits) / 23:08, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Keep Until the community changes the threshold of notability, we must operate on the established grounds. I find subject meets WP:CREATIVE with supporting in-depth and significant coverage well demonstrated. The article itself is in atrocious state and will need to be cleaned up. However, deletion is not cleanup. Operator873talkconnect 03:31, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
Comment I've reworked the article to meet formatting standards and readability. Operator873talkconnect 04:32, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
  •  Delete Clearly there's significant and in depth coverage, but this is the typical en:WP:BLP1E. The harrassment case is notable, he isn't.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:33, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

Donut butter[change source]

Donut butter (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Computer Fizz has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: "donut butter" seems to be a coined word from that one linked article, and that nobody else has ever used it, as most google results don't seem to mention anything about donut butter except that article, enwiki has no article on "donut butter", seems like a manmade creation that isn't talked about and therefore isn't notable. the phrase "Donut butter isn’t very popular." in the article also seems to reinforce this. i don't think this article meets notability Computer Fizz (talk) 05:00, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

  • I don't know U.S. culture or cuisine, or how to make donuts; however the recipe I found featured normal butter. So: there's probably no such thing as donut butter. So: delete --Eptalon (talk) 19:52, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Delete as neologism. One online recipe claims cookie butter as the source of inspiration for the term. Chenzw  Talk  12:38, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

Camouflaged Mirage has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: dicdef, doesn't seem nonsense or etc, enwp has a page on en:Greco-Roman mysteries. Is this useful to keep? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:56, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

  • I am not a theologian or philosopher, but the closest I can think of is en:Mysticism. There were/are also a number of cults, where some (or all) of the teachings were only revealed to a select few. When the religious movement has declined, and no longer has any followers, re-constructing the teachings may be very hard to impossible (depending on how well-guarded the "secrets" were, and how much was written down, and has survived the ages). The Voynich manuscript may well have a backgound in some mystery religion. Anyway: What we have is too little to keep the article, and working out the differences between a mystery religion, mysticsism, and perhaps gnosticism is a lot of work. I'd tend towards deletion; Roman and Greek mystery religions should be created as their own article. --Eptalon (talk) 17:52, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
  •  Delete I might have considered the article for QD G2/A1. The page creator is a school IP, and anything can be a mystery <insert noun here>, per the article. Chenzw  Talk  12:33, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

  •  Delete Obviously a self-promo. Zaxxon0 (talk) 05:37, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Young artists, in in eaerly twenties, probably doing some music. Apart from the obvious self-promotion (Conflict-of-interest, you never write an article about youtrself), I see a problem of encyclopedic notability. In short: delete --Eptalon (talk) 20:51, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
