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 If the reasons given in the nomination are fixed by changing, the nomination can be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an administrator.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

Discussion[change | edit source]

  • Delete. Close to being complete nonsense, and definitely not notable. Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:49, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete - Not notable and appears to be OR. Rus793 (talk) 18:17, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Rewrite - this is real, but it's badly written, unsourced and oversimplified. Philosophy is a topic that it is difficult to write good articles about in simple English. Jim Michael (talk) 15:54, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete: I did some brief research into a rewrite...even English Wikipedia calls this the hurrah/boo theory. I do adore rewriting, but I don't think I could keep from laughing. I believe we will be quite okay without this article. Fylbecatulous talk 21:45, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Discussion[change | edit source]

  • Delete. Totally fictional and OR. Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:46, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • keep.I think my page should not be deleted, as I plan to add more. What I wrote is entirely truthful. It is just a brief summary of antimatter weapons, but it does tell readers about them. I have added a source to the page, it leads to the original wikipedia:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimatter_weapon CodyM2001 (talk) 22:45, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
    • I deleted your note about the source. When you give credit to another Wikipedia as the source of an article, that goes on the talk page, not in the article itself. See Wikipedia:Transwiki attribution for more info. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:31, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
    • There are no anitimattter weapons, and speculations do not belong in an encyclopedia. Macdonald-ross (talk) 05:19, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. The statement "will most likely be made" identifies it as fictional or at least speculative, so not something we probably want an article on. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:31, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete: agree that "It is currently fictional but will most likely be made" places this is in the category of conjecture and fictional science. Not an encyclopedia article. Fylbecatulous talk 12:41, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep But only if it can be cleaned up a bit to be more like the en.wiki article. It is definitely an encyclopedic topic. But it needs to have phrases like "will most likely be made" removed. -DJSasso (talk) 13:41, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Lexi walker[change | edit source]

Lexi walker (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Enfcer has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: This was initially placed for QD for no notability. I declined it as notability being asserted, but questionable. Taken to RfD for discussion. Enfcer (talk) 21:49, 20 April 2014 (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 | edit source]

  • Maybe the article is notable, but I'm not really sure about it. All it is is a kid whose performances went viral on the internet (but not viral enough for me to have known about it prior, unlike other singer/songwriters). I don't believe they have put out any original material, so if we were to have articles for just an 11 year old girl who covers songs, I don't think it would meet notability requirements. Regardless, the article needs major wikification and cleanup, especially NPOV. --GeorgeBarnick (talk) 23:07, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
    • I am not denying there are major issues with this short article. I am just saying that the article hints at why its notable, and in my opinion negates an A4 deletion. As such, even if that notability is questionable it must go through a regular process vs QD. Just a judgment call, and no harm in letting the community have a closer look at it. Enfcer (talk) 23:19, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. Obviously not notable. Macdonald-ross (talk) 06:50, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. I would have QD'd it. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:42, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete: Should have been quick deleted. Definitely not notable. Lugia2453 (talk) 17:57, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete - Not notable. Rus793 (talk) 18:19, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete - At this time, Lexi Walker does not pass the notability guidelines for musicians and groups. MJ94 (talk) 23:43, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Category:Mammals of Great Britain[change | edit source]

Category:Mammals of Great Britain (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

Fayenatic london has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: on the Simple English wiki, this is the only category for mammals in a particular European country. Most animals found in any country in Europe are also found in neighbouring countries. Therefore we should not categorise mammals according to individual countries. The main English Wikipedia just abolished country categories for mammals in Europe, see here. We should do the same, and merge the four members of this category up to Category:Mammals of Europe.

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 | edit source]

  • Technically, this fails our criteria, because the category has four members and what happens on English wiki categories is irrelevant. In most of Europe the mammals are more or less the same, except that in Britain and Ireland the fauna lacks those species which did not get over before the flooding of the land bridge at the end of the last ice age. We have no endemic mammal species in Britain. But it is obvious that we do not use this category much, and I think it might be a good idea to delete it. I can always bring over the List of mammals of Great Britain from English wiki. I thought that would be a good idea, so I did it.. Macdonald-ross (talk) 06:48, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

    • Maybe. I note that this template on enwiki is also a redirect, but to a different template, one that we don't have. It might not be good to have it redirect differently. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:18, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
