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.

John Beckham (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

MathXplore has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Previously declined QD about a filmmaker and musician. Web search by full name just leads to IMDB and sources about people with similar names, so its hard to check details of filmography/discography. Given references are about movies rather than himself.

MathXplore has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: May not be notable enough. He seems to be working on translation of the constitution, but I cannot find any other works that may establish notability. Most of the web search results are social media or YouTube videos.

  •  Delete - Not significant enough. I can try and translate the Indonesian constitution into Esperanto, would that make me notable? There's no other indication of notability besides that he translated the Indian constitution into Santali. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 12:57, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

List of school bombings[change source]

List of school bombings (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

MathXplore has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: List with too few links, narrow coverage, limited information. If you just want to list up school incidents in alphabetical order, Category:Attacks on schools is enough. In addition, I think some cases are not bombings (just like Columbine High School).

Discussion[change source]

  • The "list" is a complete nonsense, and should be quickly deleted. Correct would be a version of En "List of school shootings in the United States" or more generally En "List of school-related attacks" which is a list of lists. En "List of school massacres by death toll" shows that violence of this type occurs in countries other than the U.S.A. Anyway, I think the topic is very relevant to our readership.

Category:Abcence (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

Lights and freedom has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Appears non-notable, with no significant coverage. Strangely, none of the sources provided include the word "Legtex", or what is listed as the parent company "Enytially", or another company that is apparently connected "Abcence". Also, if the company is privately held, then why are all the references about stock prices? You can't invest in privately held companies. Lights and freedom (talk) 04:50, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  •  Delete both. The article barely explains why he is being criticized and the content would be better in the article Pedro Sánchez. On enwiki en:WP:POVFORKs are usually discouraged. The category will have no other contents, and it's not necessary. Lights and freedom (talk) 03:56, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Sánchez is a politician, so likely there are people who do not agree with him. What I currently don't see is why this needs an article of its own, and can't be handled in a sectioon in the article about him. As to the category: Categories need three pages, so where do we get the other page from?- in short: merge to main article, then delete; no redirect needed.

  •  Comment:  (change conflict)  This appears to be a part of a bigger issue with the #KMUOS campaign run by the University of Sharjah. The English Wikipedia has been dealing with an influx of similar problematic articles (ANI thread). So far attempts at contacting the university appear to be fruitless. The issue here may be more than notability of the book, concerns of copyvio was raised in the ANI thread. In short,  Delete these articles. Notability not established, there is also the potential that these articles were translated from unacknowledged sources. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 11:59, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Thank you for the information. With recognition of this comment, I would like to add Palestinian Pleasure (book) to this request. The basic problems are same (no coverage, missing references for notability). In addition, this article depends more on quotes, therefore it has stronger potentials of copyvio.

    Spongebob is a character why does he have a page? 98.17.164.44 (talk) 07:28, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Because many sources talk about Spongebob as a character in a great depth. No sources talk about Donnie Grey as a character in great depth.

  •  Delete - Wikipedia is not the place for non-notable neologisms nor dictionary entries. Just because it's trending today (one may take a look at the google trends graph) doesn't mean it's notable, nor that it will be trending tomorrow or the day after. No indication that this is used outside the context of Hermitcraft, Grian, or Minecraft. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page
  •  Comment: So I just wanted to point out that some editors have been using the article's talk page to vote and !vote so here is the link to the diff as of now when I asked them to come here https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Chobblesome&oldid=8300506 (and Fehufangą I added the asterisk just for you lol) PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 03:45, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • As it stands now, this is a dictionary definition, and therefore suited for Wiktionary. Problem though: I get an entry at en:wikt:chobble, but nothing at chobblesome. So, is this term really used widely enough to be worth an entry? - Wikipedia / Wiktionary is ill-suited for regional terms that don't see a more widespread use. I'd porbaly go with a delete here, as we can't give the term an encyclopedic meaning. --Eptalon (talk) 10:31, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @Eptalon I was under the impression that we only used simple wikt here and not en wikt? But I also noticed on en wikt that they protected that page (June 24) to prevent the same IPs from putting the same edits on that page that they are putting on here for vandalism and YouTube promotion. I cannot ever picture a term such as this being in an encyclopedia or wikt as they wrote it. Should probably check simp wikt too and flag it there. Thanks for your input. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 11:13, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    I checked EnWikt, as my mother tongue isn't English. Yes, anyone is free to create new entries at Wikrtionary, but I guess the terms must exist. --Eptalon (talk) 15:30, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Delete. Another which does not need discussion. Invented terms not in general use are not inherently notable. Macdonald-ross (talk) 12:56, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Comment: There are words such as Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (which most people probably know from the movie/musical Mary Poppins), but then again, the word is from the 1930s, and the movie is from 1964. As to Mary Poppins, there are eight books, published between 1934 and 1988, and I don't think the word was created for the books. But again: If the word exists, and can be given a meaning, it goes to Wiktionary; if there's potential for an encyclopedic entry, it can stay at Wikipedia.--Eptalon (talk) 07:18, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  •  Delete per nom. Categorizing people by continent is generally overcategorization. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 23:45, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Comment: What does the fact that some countries do not have the title have to do with anything? It would be inane to only categorize when there is total inclusivity. Not every country has a King, Prime Minister or President. Should we use special rules for them as well since they are not inclusive enough by your standards? While it may be overcategorizing, whether it applies to every nation has absolutely no bearing on the need for the topic. These categories allow a person for more easily search for information from a specific region when the "by country" is overly broad for their needs. If you want to argue that there is no need for that degree of categorizing, fine. To say it should not exist because it does not include everyone is just insane. Pure Evil (talk) 03:20, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Yes, but "First ladies" is not a title. It's more of a PR gimmick or slogan. I don't know of any country which has an official designation. And if there were such people, why on Earth would we categorise them by continent? Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:28, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Hi, this is not part of the discussion, although you can add it with my opinion: keep. I think it is more than necessary. Passing mentions is part of references, to explain the context.

  •  Delete As far as I know, the notability of the IMO is not shown, at least not enough to have multiple articles. Several of these article also have information that is not relevant to the IMO, for example other similar competitions the country has participated in.
