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.

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason:A short blurb on a person who also has an EnWP article. The article we have is very short, just a few sentences, and has references. Bringing this to RfD, to get other input on this person's notability. If I look at the EnWP article, this person died on the 5th of May, less than a wek ago. - Kashmir has been an issue between India and Pakistan since the Partition of India in the 1940s; the countries have fought several wars because of it. So for the community to assess: is this person notable, according to our guidelines, and secondly, is the article we have in a shape that it could theoretically be kept?

  •  Comment @Eptalon: Hi can you check your spelling please? Seems like something is not correct in your review above. Thanks PotsdamLamb (talk) 08:02, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
  •  Delete. This is also a word-for-word copy-paste. Also, the sentences are far too complex. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:05, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
  •  Comment If I search with that exact spelling on Google ("Ashraf Sehrai"), I find en:Ashraf Sehrai, amongst others. Note however: this is just a pen-name, like many people in the area, he was called Khan. Also note, that since this is likely transliterated, there are spelling variations. The Kashmiri language seems to use three different scripts; Urdu uses yet another. EnWP doesn't have any interwiki links. I'd expect to see articles about the person in local Wikipedias. I find reports in Al-Jazeera, the Economic Times, The Indian Express, amongst others. --Eptalon (talk) 09:43, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Polish person, that seems to have been victim of an identrity theft. Originally, this is a disputed quick-deletion (A4-notability). The subject may well be notable, but our article lacks any references; th person may be quite a hight-profile case, but our article lacks references; so I leave this for the community to decide. For me, sounds interesting, but without sources, justifying a keep will be hard. Given this is quite a high-profile case, there will have been media reports. Anyway, keep or delete?

Either way, you are responsible for what happens, not your son.

Dear IP user, the closing admin will also take your statement into account; note however, that while many admins value the contributions of ipusers, this is not a vote, where the highest count wins. It is about assesing consensus, not about counting votes. --Eptalon (talk) 23:40, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

  • We do lump actors and actresses into one category, so it would make sense to follow suit here. So we should Delete both this category and it's female counterpart, and move all articles into Category:Rap musicians--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:01, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
  • I this this should probably be deleted; first of all, there are a few male rappers, another few female rappers (each less than 10), 34 pages is the parent category "Rap musicians", which also has another few categories. I don't think gender/sex is useful when classifying rap musicians. Note also: anyone can be a rap musician, I on't think there's a special education that you need for it, just some talent at singing/rapping. Looing at actors: there are similarly 30-odd entries in the category, we have about 10 subcategories (by medium, by nationality, murdered ones, those who committed suicide, LGBT, child actors...), but none by gender. You could argue that LGBT actors is by gender, but I guess thats different. In short: delete, after moving entries to parent category.--Eptalon (talk) 17:40, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Discussion[change source]

  • Keep The article was vandalized so I've restored it. Perhaps next time check the article's history and see if its current image is due to vandalism and revert it instead of deleting it altogether. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 09:15, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
    Right, but I didn't nominate it because the page was vandalized. (I did miss that though, so my bad.) I nominated it because I don't think the subject meets our notability guidelines. Doesnt appear to have made significant notable contributions to the field. Cult following is questionable. Relationship with 21 savage, or any other person, doesn't make a person notable themselves. The only story here seems to be his death, which falls under WP:ONEEVENT.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 14:07, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Delete because now the article has a little more detail, but tends to lack notability. Not even English Wikipedia has an article on him. Also, the main event is just his death, really, per WP:ONEEVENT. -Leo (let's talk) (my help) 14:37, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
    A note, just because en Wikipedia doesn't have an article doesn't mean we shouldn't have that article. We can make our own editorial decisions separate from what en decides to do.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 23:40, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Delete Per above, also apologies for removing the template. SoyokoAnis - talk 14:57, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
  • There is no way FBG Duck's page should be getting deleted. He has way more contribution/legacy beyond "slide" and his death. He is perhaps the most well known opposition figure to O'Block, including superstars such as Lil Durk and King Von. Although I myself am not an expert on FBG Duck's history, I do believe there is much more of a story to be told and public information out there about him that should be added to his Wiki.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.21.67.152 (talkcontribs) 03:10, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
  •  Delete Same reasons as nomination. I cannot find anything other than his death and that he was an up and coming local rapper per Washington Times/AP Shareable site. PotsdamLamb (talk) 08:25, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

  • The reason for deletion is not good. However, the subject of the article is not notable for an article and does not claim to be. Also, see the amount of declines on the draft w:Draft:Steez.  Delete as not notable, not "per nom" though... --Ferien (talk) 06:08, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

Gordonrox24 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: I don't believe this subject to be notable. No widespread coverage from reliable sources. Gordonrox24 | Talk 17:22, 1 May 2021 (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 source]

  • The cited sources are reliable because they have been used in Wikipedia pages in English in general, as well as in the Spanish language. In addition, the subject is cited in the new Wikipedia project Racism in Peru, which will also have coverage in the English language. This is relevant. There is coverage on the subject in agencies that are major and worldwide. We can unfailingly appreciate the sources cited in English Wikipedia pages and this is indisputable. Even the theme is laureate. Greetings! Literaturemostly (talk) 17:48, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
A source being used elsewhere doesn't always make it a reliable source. Coverage in a Wikiproject is not a reliable source. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:34, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
The Racism in Peru page is a national and global project that will be extended to Wikipedia in its various languages. It is of a state and institutional nature, and professionals and experts established in the current intellectual scene are cited. Sincerely! Literaturemostly (talk) 7 May 2021 (UTC)
Maybe I'm misunderstanding, however Wikipedia cannot be used as a source for Wikipedia.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 02:48, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Well. As you mentioned earlier, it could be a reliable source. In fact, it can be thought that it is a reference when the names are shaded and in this way Wikiprojects have arisen. Literaturemostly (talk) 8 May 2021 (UTC)
  • The person may be notable, but the article lacks all biographical information (which must be sourced). It does suggest (by the titles) what kind of work he does, and it is hard to say whether he is significantly better than others. What's needed is critical assessment of his work. It's good to win awards, and he has had some success there. Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:25, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
    The awards themselves seem questionable. The first award mentioned comes from "Hispanomundial Union of Writers". Outside of a facebook page, I'm not even sure this actually exists as a real organization. The 2nd award, "International Eagle World Award for Sociological Excellence" doesn't have an organization noted in the article. Searching for one doesn't turn anything up that I can see. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:34, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
    I have just added as references, three critical evaluations about your work. They: "Raúl Allain y la reserva moral", in addition to "La visión maldita de Raúl Allain" by the historian, poet and journalist Humberto Pinedo. And the article by the member María Alejandra Gámez of the Association of Victims of Organized Harassment and Electronic Torture (VIACTEC), a recent institution cited in Wikipedia in Japanese on page Voice to Skull (ボイス・トゥ・スカル) where the character's article "Reforma científica del derecho humano público" taken by the Colombian newspaper La Libertad (source: Ssociólogos) is also a reference. An attentive greeting. Literaturemostly (talk) 7 May 2021 (UTC)
Yes, so I think that adds up as  Delete. Macdonald-ross (talk) 05:49, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Delete per nom, I guess. -Leo💬📜 17:25, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Both laurels are from the Unión Hispanomundial de Escritores (UHE), cited in this English Wikipedia, for example on the page of Magie Faure-Vidot in section Honors, awards, certifications, training, and memberships. However, the page can be edited. Best regards! Literaturemostly (talk) 7 May 2021 (UTC)
    Again, just because a source is used on another Wikipedia article doesn't necessarily make the source reliable. When attempting to research the Unión Hispanomundial de Escritores, the first result coming up as Facebook doesn't bode well for the reliability of this organization as a source. Nothing I'm seeing makes me believe it is a suitable reliable source.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 02:38, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
    You can also see that the President is Carlos Hugo Garrido Chalén, a multi-awarded and distinguished writer and lawyer. In addition to the fact that Garrido Chalén is the current member of the historic North Group where the universal poet César Vallejo was a member. Consideration!

Death of Kelsey-Smith Briggs[change source]

Death of Kelsey-Smith Briggs (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Two-year old that died as a rsult of abuse, in Oklahoma. What we do have is the blurb of the EnWP article. According to that article, the state of Oklahome changed some of its procedures to better be able to hanlde cases such as this one. Biological mother and stepfather seem to have been sentenced to 27 and 30 years in prison respectively. Originally, this was proposed as an 'A4- questionable notability'. Give a quick search I found some sources, so I propose we do a regular RfD on this article. Depending on how you look at the case it might be notable, and worth keeping. On the other hand: the case looks extrodinary because state authorities placed her in the fster care of her biological mother & stephather, without knowing who the abuser was. Anyway: how many simliar cases of child abuse are there every year? - So, for the community to decide if this one is notable enough for keeping. Eptalon (talk) 15:52, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

  • We can delete this one straight away because it as an incorrect title! On the correct version I would argue that the story of her death is notable, but we can discuss that later. Macdonald-ross (talk) 16:41, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
  • It might actually make more sense to Keep this page, and delete the other copy. At least this one has some references to start with.--Gordonrox24 | Talk
  •  Comment If kept, needs to be moved to the correct name; also keep in mind that there is en:Murder of Kelsey Smith, a case which probably attracted more media attention (18-year old teenager kidnapped, raped murdered, the killer is currently serving life in prison); at some point we may also have an article on that case, we currently don't.--Eptalon (talk) 06:47, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Gordonrox24 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Not sure this teacher is notable. Main claim to notability is winning an award in 2011, but I'm unsure how notable this award is itself.
