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 If the reasons given in the nomination are fixed by changing, the nomination can be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an administrator.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

Peterdownunder has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Another non-notable article - see also Yung Trace. Peterdownunder (talk) 00:36, 5 July 2015 (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 | change source]

  • Delete as not notable. Put up by the same user as many times deleted pages on Dao Ranaldo and Yung Trace. Should be deleted and salted. Macdonald-ross (talk) 06:58, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete: Not notable. Of course, Slomoe listens while they freestyle. Absurd. Delete and salt. Fylbecatulous talk 12:11, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete as not notable. Using social media for references is pretty much throwing in the towel notability-wise. A search didn't turn up any reliable sources. And, yes, salt. User:Rus793 (talk) 15:34, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete 11 subscribers is not notable.--Druddigon (talk) 20:44, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

This request is due to close on 00:36, 12 July 2015 (UTC), seven days after it was filed, although it may be closed earlier at the discretion of an administrator.

Discussion[change | change source]

  • Delete as not notable. Put up by the same user as many times deleted pages on Dao Ranaldo and Yung Trace. Should be deleted and could be salted. Editor is abusing our wiki and, pending the result of these discussions, should be appropriately dealt with. Macdonald-ross (talk) 07:02, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete: not notable. Add salt. Fylbecatulous talk 12:06, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete and salt. I'm unable to find anything notable about this page. User:Rus793 (talk) 15:47, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete and salt. Does not meet notability. --Fitnr (talk) 17:18, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Yung Trace (MC)[change | change source]

Yung Trace (MC) (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Rus793 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Notability; not shown and can't find any reliable sources on him. There appear to be at least two others calling themselves Yung Trace. The selfie (see history) seems to a good indication of what this is. User:Rus793 (talk) 18:35, 4 July 2015 (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 | change source]

I dont believe this should be deleted because i believe it is notable. If this is not notable tell me how ?--Imsobreezy123 (talk) 18:44, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

This is not about the English language definition of 'notability'. This is about a subject meeting (or not meeting) the guideline Wikipedia:Notability. User:Rus793 (talk) 19:35, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete as not meeting criteria for notability.--Peterdownunder (talk) 00:32, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete as not notable. Versions of this page and Dao Ranaldo have been deleted many times, and this should have been QD'd on that ground alone. They started arriving here when En wiki deleted them likewise. Editor(s) who continually put them up are abusing our wiki, possibly for the purposes of publicity, and have never understood or acknowledged our criteria for notability. Macdonald-ross (talk) 06:45, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
    • The QD option that allows deletion of content that has been deleted before is for content that has been deleted at RfD, not by QD. The previous deletions I found were all QDs, so it will be helpful in future to let this RfD run. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:07, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure Dao Ranaldo was discussed early in the sequence. It was essentially the same page. The user has tried several variations of title to evade salting. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:12, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete: Entirely not notable. My favourite part: "He goes out with friends all the time" (unsourced at that...). Delete, please and salt as many permutations as possible. Fylbecatulous talk 12:03, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

This request is due to close on 18:35, 11 July 2015 (UTC), seven days after it was filed, although it may be closed earlier at the discretion of an administrator.

Discussion[change | change source]

  • The articsl is about a political movement which has been witnessed in iraq during the era of its first , second and third republic . All the names, events and references are geniun. If the artical needs more improvement it would ve better to high lights the weak points in this artical and suggest corrections rather than deleting it . Thanks — This unsigned comment was added by 110.175.60.83 (talk • changes).
Editors check to find alternatives for an article that does not meet Wikipedia's policies or guidelines. They do this before commenting here. Deleting an article is always a last resort. The subject of articles such as this one needs to meet the Wikipedia:Notability guideline. If an article does not, it can't be made to be notable. User:Rus793 (talk) 16:07, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete as unproven notabiity. Large parts look like POV invention or synthesis. Look at the date 1921: Iraq not a state, but a UK-administered League of Nations mandate. And in 1921 the people mentioned were children. Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:29, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Please note that the iraqi army was established in 6 jan. 1921. The movement mentioned above was a part of the military it self yet it flourshed only in the late 50's and sixsties. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 110.175.60.83 (talk) 16:58, 2 July 2015
  • Delete: Agree that this is point of view, unsourced and that there has to be synthesis. (per Macdonald-ross' reasoning). Fylbecatulous talk 12:56, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
  • The references mention were in arabic since movement was formed in arabic speaking country which high lights the fact that this artical has a historic background never the less the names mentioned found to be genioun. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 49.183.92.64 (talk) 01:27, 7 July 2015

Rus793 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Notability; questionable claim but does not show notability. User:Rus793 (talk) 14:28, 29 June 2015 (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 | change source]

  • Delete. Pretty much a duplicate of the En page. It contains no independent assessment of the topic's notability (or none that one can read), so it should be deleted. It is hardly a useful page for this wiki, because almost none of it is in English. Macdonald-ross (talk) 11:57, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete: notability not shown, really. Agree this is barely readable and not useful as a resource to our readers. Fylbecatulous talk 12:15, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
