Wikipedia:Deletion review

If you think a review of a deletion discussion is needed, please list it here and say why. Users can then comment to reach an agreement on whether the community thinks the discussion was closed correctly, or the decision should be overturned. Each user can say if he or she wants to endorse the closure, or overturn the closure, with a brief comment, and sign with ~~~~.

A page should stay listed here for at least 5 to 7 days. After that time, an administrator will decide if there is a consensus (agreement) about what to do, and take appropriate steps. If the consensus was that the discussion was closed correctly, the discussion should be closed with a note saying this.

Christian Atheism[change source]

My article on Christian Atheism was wrongly deleted, even though I specifically stated in my edit section when I posted it the 2nd time saying that I would simplify it whenever I have the time. I don't know if it was deleted because of that, or if it was deleted because of my sources, but it should not have been deleted. If it was put back into this Wiki, then I will find a way to simplify it. But until then, what has been done with my page is unfair, even though I said that I would find a way to simplify it, but also if there is something that needs to be fixed; then I will have time to fix it when I can. Take my words into consideration please. Sincerely, Chanman2019. (Written on April 12th, 2019 at 9:01 AM)

You can't just copy a complex article over and then leave it and say you will come back at some point. You have to simplify it when you add it. By the looks of it you were given about 5 hours to do so when it was last deleted. -DJSasso (talk) 14:04, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
@Chanman2019: When you plan to work on an article over time, it's often a good idea to put it in a sandbox in your userspace. There, you can take longer to get the article in shape for this wiki. As far as the deletion, think about it this way: if many people copied over complex articles without simplifying them, we'd have an awful lot of articles that didn't meet the mission of Simple English Wikipedia. That mission is to provide easy-to-read articles for readers: any articles that don't meet that are subject to review and/or deletion. We've had people argue that this wiki should be shut down because we don't fulfill that mission well enough, so it's understandable that we have the quick deletion option under which your article was twice deleted. --Auntof6 (talk) 15:08, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
@Auntof6: Ok, understood. I am sorry if I caused any inconvenience or any drama. That of course wasn't my intention. Thank you for telling me about being able to use the sandbox to keep my Wiki page on here for a longer time. This is honestly my first time actually posting Wiki articles, so I am kinda learning as I go along. I have always been one to read Wikipedia articles; not one to post them, so this is kinda an experiment for me because I have always been fascinated with online encyclopedias like Wikipedia, Britannica, and many other online encyclopedias like those. So that is why I wanted to try this out to see what I can learn about making these kinds of articles. I hope that you can understand my situation. But besides that, thank you for helping me out with my situation, you have helped me learn something very helpful that I can use as a tool for learning on how to write Wikipedia pages. You are awesome for helping me out. 👍 Sincerely, Chanman2019. (Written on April 17th, 2019 at 9:14 AM CDT)

Rada Radonjić[change source]

Hi Wikipedians. I made an article Rada Radonjić. It was deleted by the other Wikipedians because there were no sources. I added sources and some new piece of information. Now it is an article with information which are really confirmed with references. Please, I would like to know what I can change, add or something else if you wrote there. I would like to point out that is an article which is proven. It is about live person. So, please, if you could help me about this article I would be really happy. Thank you. --Anitelav (talk) 20:48, 21 June 2019 (UTC)Anitelav

For the reference, the RfD was closed a few days back, and is at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2019/Rada Radonjic. When I do a google search on the name, what I find is what looks like two self-published pages, facebook, and youtube on the first page of results. I don't know what you see as being notable, but what we want is reliable third-party sources for notability.--Eptalon (talk) 21:12, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
