Wikipedia:Requests for deletion

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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.

Fehufanga has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: No independent or reliable coverage that would establish notability.

    I think there is no need to withdraw. The current version and enwiki is a stub and does not give any references but only few web links. ptwiki has more context but no inline citations. eswiki has references but I'm not able to evaluate their reliability.

Jacron[change source]

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

SlimyGecko7 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: It does not seem to claim that Jacron is notable. The first revision was copied entirely from https://www.panaprium.com/blogs/i/jacron, which seems to be a blog and completely unsourced. The first revision listed jeans twice in what it is used for and the site also lists jeans twice. Even if it wasn’t copied from another site, enwiki appears to have never had an article about Jacron.

Discussion[change source]

  •  Delete Only two possible claims of notability, and no references to support them.
  • First is being a "social media star," which I don't think really means anything without further explanation and/or references.
  • Second is having millions of viewers ("viewer's are in millions"): YouTuber statistics are usually stated in terms of subscribers or views, not viewers. The number of subscribers doesn't mean much: subscribing is free, people could subscribe and never interact with the YouTuber again, and there can be mass subscribing just for the purpose of making the YouTuber look good. A viewer would be someone who viewed a video at least once, so this can be translated as views being at least in the millions, but I don't know of any policy or guideline saying that a certain number of views (or subscribers, for that matter) constitutes notability.
If kept, though, copy editing is needed. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:41, 14 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •  Delete Shouldn't have been restored, absolutely nothing notable said about the subject except that "millions" of people watch him.[source?] Hockeycatcat (talk) (changes) 22:49, 14 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @Hockeycatcat: The option used for deleting was A1 ("very short and provides little or no meaning"). That didn't fit because there was sufficient meaning. Because of that, the article was restored (see the deletion review discussion for more info).
    WP:QD#A4 didn't apply because there is at least one claim of notability, however tenuous. The definition of the A4 option explains in more detail; sometimes we forget that the short descriptions of the QD options don't include the whole guideline, but we have to go by the whole guideline when processing QD requests. -- Auntof6 (talk) 23:30, 14 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •  Comment: I found a YouTube channel with the name Rohit Baghel vlogs, and YouTube says that he only has a total of 245,066 views. This is still a large number, but nowhere near the "millions" that the article claims. Also, these numbers don't mean anything, as Auntof6 said, someone could just click on the YouTuber's video, watch for 10 seconds, then click off again.

After the vote, Daily Times reported that "Sugarcane juice declared as national drink of Pakistan", but this declaration is from the voters rather than the government (https://dailytimes.com.pk/347884/sugarcane-juice-declared-as-national-drink-of-pakistan/). According to these sources, there were about 7600 votes. About 82% of the participants voted for sugarcane juice, while the others voted for something else. The majority would be respected, but are we supposed to ignore the minority ? I'm not sure about the legal effect of this poll.

  • I'll give you sopmething ot consider: The Roman Catholic Church is headed by the pope; Eastern Orthodox chuexhes have "main priests/bishops" per conuntry (usually called Metropolitans, I think). To my knowledge, Islam has a similar ocncept; so, in Egypt or Saudia arabia, there's a National mosque. In India, Islam is very prominent, so I could well imagine that someone decided that a particular mosque was the "main mosque of r the country". But who would be in a position to decide that, and how easy would it be to change ofr a different one?- In any case, we'd ned a reference that a particular omsque is the main one in India...--Eptalon (talk) 22:08, 14 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lights and freedom has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Seems to be an unhelpful copy of Category:Articles_to_be_updated. The former is generated by Template:Update inline while the latter is generated by Template:Update. It was suggested in 2014 that this category is unnecessary. I think we should delete it and modify Template:Update inline to point towards the other category. Lights and freedom (talk) 04:35, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  •  Delete - Per nom, duplicate of an already existing category, and the template should be deprecated.*Fehufangą✉ Talk page 11:36, 1 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Changed my mind on deprecating the template.— *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 08:45, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •  Comment: Keep - So what this is is that the articles are using code with a date which is as of and date. That is why it gets put in this category. We can always run AWB and strip the code out of these articles, so it is just the dates. So instead of "As of" with code, it would still say "As of," but without code. The other cat is not nearly the same. It uses a code that is {{tl:update}} or {{update after}} which means it is an article that has possibly outdated information, say a population count from 2000, and an editor put the code into let others know hey this number needs to be updated after a certain time. So I need to say keep as they are not the same and do not use the same cats as they have different meanings. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 20:30, 1 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @PotsdamLamb: Right now it doesn't make a difference because the articles are not sorted into subcategories by date. If they were, it would be a different story. Lights and freedom (talk) 15:05, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @Lights and freedom It does make a difference and they can be separated by date, but then that generates a lot of categories that we do not need (or even subcats). I think the way they are is just fine as is because they need attention and they use different codes to put them in the cats. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:12, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @PotsdamLamb I don't think template that adds to this category includes the words "as of". Where did you see that? By the way {{as of}} uses a different category: Category:Articles containing potentially dated statements. Lights and freedom (talk) 15:16, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    •  Comment: May be their meaning (the topic's name I mean) is same but still there are some difference in here (in terms of time). So this could be a serious matter in which most of the active users must give consent about this.
    Tagging @Lights and freedom and @PotsdamLamb for reply. Jyoti Roy (talk) 15:21, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
     Comment: @Lights and freedom Category:Articles to be updated uses {{update}} in the header. So for example 12 Rounds (movie) needs to be updated because it has dated statements in it. ex. 12 Rounds is a 2009 movie set to be directed by Renny Harlin and produced by WWE Films. Casting is currently taking place, but professional wrestler John Cena is set to star with Steve Harris, Aidan Gillen, and Brian J. White. Filming has been scheduled to take place in New Orleans between February 25 and May 12, 2008. Category:All Wikipedia articles in need of updating uses {{outdated inline}}. So there are differences, as if one cat having 5 article's in it vs. another having 521 articles in it does not show a difference in and of itself. Both have other templates they use to put them in and you are also talking about a discussion from 2014. Category:All Wikipedia articles in need of updating was created at 11:52, April 3, 2014. The Category:Articles to be updated was created at 11:52, April 3, 2014. So despite the discussion you listed, they were never removed and have been on here since 2014.

    Yeh so why there is need of deleting this category huh...@PotsdamLamb by the way, thnx for clarification. Jyoti Roy (talk) 15:38, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @TTP1233 No worries. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:40, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    You are right that
    In my opinion, both templates mean the same thing (that something in the article needs to be updated), so I don't think two separate categories are needed. Lights and freedom (talk) 15:40, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @Lights and freedom If so, then the discussion must be made before here. Then why at this time? If the suggession made at Paladox's talk page in 2014, then a consent or discussion must be carried out before. The discussion being made or not, I can't say, but if yes then this could be deleted earlier. Jyoti Roy (talk) 15:45, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @Lights and freedom If we do that then we have to remove one of the templates and have the template added to the other so it goes into that cat, but the problem is, they are not the same. {{update}} can be removed easily because it is at the top of the articles, where the inline can be anywhere and appear more than once in an article. Thanks - Da LambTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 15:52, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete and redirect - I've confused myself so apologies if this doesn't make sense - I would suggest the template that generates Category:All Wikipedia articles in need of updating should be deleted and redirected to Category:Articles to be updated as although one apparently is for update and the other is for outdated inline - Both pages say the same thing and both templates are seemingly doing the same thing - At least to me it would make more sense to have one update page than like 20-30 categories/pages that never get seen or updated.
We could delete one template and one category but chances are they're just going to be recreated by a newbie unaware of this very discussion so to save all that it would make more sense to just delete and redirect the least populated one to the most populated one. Hope that all makes sense as like I say I've confused myself trying to figure it out!, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:08, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The category should also be deleted and redirected - no objections to just redirecting (without the deletion). –Davey2010Talk 23:10, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •  Keep Voting keep for now. I think the issues are more complex than just dealing with this category, because there are multiple templates involved. I'd prefer to deal with the underlying templates first. Redirecting this category would have no effect because the category is not hardcoded -- at least it's not supposed to be. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:34, 13 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
