  • 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 If the reasons given in the nomination are fixed by changing, the nomination can be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an administrator.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.

  • Delete: This appears to be a shorter version of an existing template on our article Punk rock. (Not sure how two templates could be created with same title). The longer version is much better and it coincides with the Infobox music genre that also appears in the Punk rock article. Fylbecatulous talk 15:18, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
They have the same displayed title, but not the same name. This one is "punk rock". The one on that page is just "punk". --Auntof6 (talk) 16:38, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Ok, I see. Thanks :) So then 'punk rock' is the better title, since 'punk' alone can have many meanings: en:Punk. If this is deleted, we should rename the one in use? Fylbecatulous talk 16:57, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
I don't think so. The one on enwiki is just "punk". There aren't the same disambiguation issues with templates as there are with articles, because readers don't look at template names. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:45, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • Instead of using the template, we should probably bring over en:Kufstein District. There are 30 municipalities/villages with a total population of about 101.000 people. Smallest of these is Mariastein, with 347 people, largest of them is Kufstein, with 18.736 (see de:Bezirk Kufstein for a listing. So instead of having the navigational template, we should have a stub about the district. --Eptalon (talk) 16:39, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Well, it's not really an either-or. If we had the individual articles, it would be fine to have both. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:41, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete per nom. Even if we bring over en:Kufstein District, we're unlikely to bring over all the little articles that support it; here, we'd probably merge them all to the article on the district. So the template is unnecessary. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:04, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
Actually, if past practice is any indication, we're more likely to get the individual articles created first as "X is a place in Y" articles. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:35, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

It is not a "list of all nuns" it is just "a" list of nuns, mostly Bavarian, taken from ongoing readings revolving around an online manuscript project that I expect to produce at least a couple more articles. The manuscripts are a project that bring together archived holdings of five different convents after their dissolution (I think in 1882-1883, but I'm still gathering information about each convent). See User:Neotarf/Bavarian convents . These manuscripts are an important source of information about women in the 15th century, as many of them were in convents, and educated. The documentation for the manuscripts is unfortunately in German, and so it is tedious going, but the Germans seem to have preserved a lot of convents and monasteries as historical sites, so I expect to eventually be able to identify all the convents and associate them with documentation in English language.

The purpose of the list is to link the individual nun with the geographical location, other individuals in their era, and possibly eventually with particular manuscripts. I suppose the list could be made into a group of stubs, which you would need to attach a category to each individual, but imho most of them will probably not turn out to be notable enough, and a list should be more than enough. The main thing the list does is 1) make the names searchable 2) group them with other names in the same general century and geographical era, also by occupation (i.e. scribes, mystics, visions) information that does not come up in a google search, but is buried in online books 3) have a place for red links that might eventually turn blue. I have the book links open anyhow, looking for info about the convents, so it is a small effort to make a list at the same time. I had considered putting this in a user page, but I don't think it would be searchable so I don't see any point. So if you don't want the information just delete it. I will stop making articles about convents until you decide what to do, I have another priority anyhow. —Neotarf (talk) 17:52, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment. I think the material is encyclopedic, the problem is with the title which suggests that it is the start of a lengthy article about all nuns. Changing to a more limiting title might be a more appropriate option rather than outright deletion here. Etamni | ✉   13:18, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
That would work for me, as would incorporating this information into a non-list article. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:16, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
For an article title, maybe try something like "15th c. Bavarian nuns"? I think it would not end up being nuns only. In that time women were not allowed to minister as friars were, but were allowed visions and mysticism; many kept personal books of their own visions. Also they had male spiritual advisors, many of the nuns are known to history only through the writings of these friars, some were famous themselves as mystics. There might also be names of nobles, as convents were for the wealthy class, and often endowed by noblewomen who later retired there as widows or sent a daughter there. The name of the project was "Writing Culture in Southern German Women's Convents", so maybe something like "convent movements in southern Germany" would be broad enough, or if you want to limit to 15th c. There were beguines in the 14th(?) c if anyone wants to look for them, an interesting movement (Belgian?) that was eventually put out of business by Rome or maybe by economic factors, but out of scope for this list/article. Also I think there will end up being a music component here, as the convents needed materials for singing the liturgies. —Neotarf (talk) 22:57, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
For the record, keep please. As discussed throughout this page, the title needs improvement and there might be a better way to write the citations, but the material is the kind of thing that belongs in an encyclopedia. Etamni | ✉   21:14, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete. Subject is far too broad in scope and 4 of the 5 source fail verification. Rus793 (talk) 14:06, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
@Rus793: could you explain exactly what you mean when you say that sources "fail verification" please? I'm asking this because the first four sources (which are actually the same citation) confirm facts they appear to have been cited to support. The actual title of the book, which is not "google books" of course, is Women and the Book: Assessing the Visual Evidence and it was edited by Lesley Smith and Jane H.M. Taylor, and published by The British Library and University of Toronto Press in 1996. Etamni | ✉   10:37, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Sure @Etamni:. The first statement was " She copied thirty-one manuscripts, including a whole Bible, and started a catalogue of the convent library.[1]" The link is to the searched item in the index, "Altenhohenau convent". I do not see any verification of the statement as it is presented in this index page, just an unconnected highlighted name. The reader who guesses correctly and follows the clue to page 125 (which should have been cited) finds the statement is fully supported. The second statement was " She (Margareta Karthäuserin ) copied at least fourteen books for the Divine Office.[2]". Again, same situation. The actual citation should have been to page 125. Neither the name Kunigunde Niklasin nor Margareta Karthäuserin is on that index page. The citations to the index was making the weak implication that by looking up Altenhohenau Convent on pages 124-5, he or she would find the information after reading two pages—a "go-fish" citation. WP:NOR states "They (sources) should also directly support the information as it is presented. WP:V states "Wikipedia should only publish material that is verifiable and is not original research". I wasn't questioning the reliability of the source, just that none of the four citations verified the statements. If I thought the article was worth saving I could take the same information on the book you provided and add "p. 125" and we'd have a reliable and verifiable source citation. Rus793 (talk) 15:19, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
So where are the formatting tools for gbooks that work here? I know there are some, REFLINKS and some others I think are down right now, but they usually come back. And if you want to see the exact pages you can click a link at the top of the search, or click another option to view all the search engine hits. I don't think there is another way to read this for a book that only has snippet view. —Neotarf (talk) 22:57, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
When I looked at the book, it was offered in preview mode. But, the preview can and often does change as to what pages are available for viewing. So direct linking to a gbook is far more subject to link rot than a web page. Someone following up will often encounter a note saying "Page xxx is not a part of this preview" or "Some pages are omitted from this preview" or "You have reached a page that is not longer available". The citation to a book or print publication is simply attesting you have seen this information in this publication. No matter where a source is located, a citation is supposed to be identified in a manner that permits others to easily relocate the document. Web pages are easy to link to and it is convenient for the reader to verify the information. But we aren't doing the reader any favors linking to a gbook. There are templates or the citation can be written out using ref tags. We had trouble with the cite book template for so long I got out of the habit using it and went back to writing citations to books following an established style. Rus793 (talk) 01:23, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
The preview depends on the search terms. —Neotarf (talk) 00:21, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete. Articles could be written on notable nuns, of course. This title is not suitable, as others have commented. Incidentally, convents? Converts? I'm not sure what you think is the common theme. Mediaeval books in convents are like early books in mediaeval libraries generally. Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:28, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • Delete per nom. — MBlaze Lightning 12:59, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment. Many (most?) countries have a Time in X article on English Wikipedia. In some cases this article is far from trivial, particularly when a country spans multiple time zones. In other cases, this article is no more than a permanent stub. It is reasonable to have this information somewhere on this wiki. Question is where: a permanent stub article? Redirect to the country article? Redirect to an article on time zones? I'm not sure. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:42, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment Keep, in some form - this article was initially created as a stub (Special:Permalink/5431510), but was redirected by me (to Afghanistan) because it was a duplicate of the infobox's contents.
To add on to the above, I don't think that the version in Special:Permalink/5431510 should stay as an article; even EN's version doesn't say much apart from it's IANA timezone database code, which I would argue is for a more technically-minded audience (eg. sysadmins). An example of an exception would be en:Time in Singapore, which actually gives some encyclopedic information about the country's timekeeping (Singapore shifted its time several times in the past).
I agree with StevenJ81 that such a page title should exist on this wiki. If it's to be kept as a perma-stub, perhaps we can also include an infobox of some sort, listing the IANA code, DST start/end dates, and also, the {{#time: }} parserfunction. Chenzw  Talk  14:13, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
Here is an example of what I was talking about: User:Chenzw/Sandbox/timezone. Chenzw  Talk  15:28, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
I think that's a great template and makes everything quite clear.
The question remains, though: where? If we were using the enwiki articles as examples (but talking about our wiki's approach), the Singapore article deserves to stand alone. But should the Afghanistan article simply be a section of the main article on Afghanistan? Should there be in a Time in Asia article? StevenJ81 (talk) 16:01, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
The country infobox already has details about the timezone, so if we would rather "merge" the pages, it will simply be a deletion of Time in Afghanistan. There are a few more questions in this RfD, though: is this a plausible enough search term such that we should keep this title? Second, if we keep this title, should this be a redirect to the article on the country, or a stand-alone article?
I am not so sure about the Time in <continent/region> approach. Depending on the region's size, one such article could detail timekeeping practices of a lot of countries. Chenzw  Talk  14:09, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
Most countries have single time zones, either do or don't have summer time/DST, and can be handled with a single reference. So I was thinking of a single article that is mainly a table. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:30, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh yes, a table would present the data quite well. I previously was fearing an article with numerous sections (what was I thinking...). In either case, I feel this page title should continue to exist in some form, whether as a redirect or as a stub. Chenzw  Talk  14:36, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete. I wrote a long piece and lost it in a crash, so this time briefly. In general time zone information belongs in the country article, and a separate page is not justified. But in special cases where there is interesting extra content, then a stand-alone page is good. So IMO the Afghanistan time zone info (it's ICT +5) should go in the country article, and this article should be deleted. Macdonald-ross (talk) 16:22, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete. What time zone a place is in is a single fact and nothing to base an article on. It is appropriate to include it in the main article along with other pertinent facts. It is also an unlikely search term so a redirect seems unnecessary. Rus793 (talk) 14:02, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
    FWIW, I look that kind of thing up in enwiki all the time. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:33, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment I frequently Google time in ... to find out the time zone of a place I am interested in, but I doubt very many people come to Simple and then search the term. I think it would be better to keep the title (perhaps as a redirect) should anybody prefer this way of searching, but only special cases need a full-blown article about the subject. (As a side note, it seems likely that the time zone of any country, region, or city is likely to have enough documentation as to meet a strict definition of "notability" -- but in most cases, it just doesn't seem worth it to have separate articles about something that can be noted in an infobox or with a single sentence or section within the article about the place.)

  • Admin note: I'm extending this for 5 days because it seems like we're on the verge of deciding how to preserve the info, but no one is stepping up to the plate to actually make an article with a table, or whatever we think we want. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:26, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
If people are ok with a list/table article, perhaps by continent, I'm willing to take that on over time. But it's going to take me a little while to get all the way through it. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:52, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
