Wikipedia:Deletion review

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.

This article was deleted in 2015 but I see enwiki has an article. The creator of this article is   Still active here, so why not allow this article to be developed? Ottawahitech (talk) 01:13, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

It was deleted for being a dicdef (dictionary definition). If someone wants to write a more fleshed-out article, that would be fine as long as it's in simple language. When an article is deleted for that kind of reason, it doesn't need a deletion review to be recreated, as long as the deletion reason is addressed. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:31, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Many articles start out as stubs and develop over time. I for one am grateful to the person who started this article in 2015, for bringing the topic to my attention. In my opinion it was a mistake to delete it when an enwiki article existed since 2005, and the original Simple creator should get the credit for it. Ottawahitech (talk) 04:46, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
The users who created the RFD and gave input on it felt that it was a dicdef, rather than a stub. You may disagree, but the RFD had to be decided based on the comments given at the time. Also, existence of an enwiki article is not grounds for keeping one here. As I said, you are welcome to create the article again if you're going to write more. If you want the deleted version restored into a sandbox, I can do that (after my laptop maintenance finishes), but I don't want to restore it to mainspace in the form that was deleted. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:16, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

was qd'ed because it's not notable, even though it's linked to from 3 different pages. would be better to rfd, or just restore/improve it. Computer Fizz (talk) 04:13, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

I restored it, because I don't believe QD option A4 applies to fictional characters (pinging @Macdonald-ross:, who did the deletion). Note that the number of incoming links alone does not constitute notability or require RFD. It's also not necessary to have incoming links to justify a deletion review. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:23, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

XP School[change source]

XP School. Good afternoon. Less than few hours after this page has been created, already deleted with no discussion. I am too late to add "wait" on the talk page. 2A01:CB00:B51:3E00:9CDC:F6B0:8CC7:9D88 (talk) 10:52, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

As far as I can see, this article was never discussed on RFD on this wiki, so QD G4 does not apply. The content does not appear to be blatant self-promotion either (QD G11). The subject does indeed have questionable notability, but such an issue falls under RFD scope. Chenzw  Talk  20:41, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Ben Shapiro[change source]

The page on Ben Shapiro has been deleted for being non-notable. I responded to the request for deletion by arguing in the talk page that the (in)famous Ben Shapiro is both prominent enough and controversial enough to be worthy of note. And I still maintain that there should be an article, or at least a stub, about Ben Shapiro on that grounds. I explicitly mentioned on the talk page that if this argument were refuted, I would have no problem with deletion. No counterargument has yet been produced and as such I would like the Ben Shapiro page to be reinstated until such time as rebuttal is offered. (P.S. I in no way wish to impugn the editor who deleted the Shapiro page as the editor in question has done some very good work in protecting the Adolf Hitler page from vandalism and has my great respect for that.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.200.115.29 (talkcontribs)

The issue wasn't that he isn't notable, it was that the article as written didn't show notability. Anyone is free to create the article again as long as they explain why the person is notable in the article. Just stating they are a commentator for example would not be enough. -DJSasso (talk) 18:49, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
