Wikipedia:Requests for deletion

(Redirected from Wikipedia:BEFORE)
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 Edit

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 deletionEdit

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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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)}}
  1. 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 deletionEdit

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 userEdit

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.

DiscussionsEdit

  • 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.

Noor HaddadEdit

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

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Syrian Journalist, which critizises the Syrian regime. Seems to live in Istanbul (Turkey). As notable magazines such as Der Spiegel report on her, there's probably no issue of notability. I know that deletion is not cleanup, but I doubt many peolple here are fluent in Arabic. For this reason at least one English-language reference would be nice. Anyway: putting this up for discussion, rather than doing a QD. At the moment borderline keep/delete...

DiscussionEdit

  • Likely, we are talking about an Austrian football player, born in the year 2000. (See this page for details). Problems we have: First, this page currently redirects to a completely unrelated page, second the person is in his early 20s at best, and third, I don't konw how famous he is outiside Austria. (Note to closing admin:this is a comment).--Eptalon (talk) 19:20, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
  •   Delete To me this is a clear delete because the person doesn't seem notable and there are two people by this name that I can find (the one mentioned above by Eptalon and one with a PhD in Computational Quantum Physics). If we don't have an actual article with references it's really unclear who the author was referring to due to the random redirect. Reception123 (talk) 19:24, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Long DivisionEdit

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

Camouflaged Mirage has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Doesn't seem right. en:Long Division is a disambiguation page and not a redirect. This seems a little narrow. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:30, 22 February 2020 (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.

DiscussionEdit

  • That's the method we were taught when we were young. see en:Long division. Note: lowercase d in division...--Eptalon (talk) 20:29, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
  • I don't know how to feel about this, but as Eptalon says it's a way of doing division, so I think it'd probably not be bad as a redirect, but I would prefer a lowercase d rather than an uppercase one, which isn't really justified. Reception123 (talk) 20:50, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
    With Eptalon's modification, I think we should move to Long division (with a lowercase d). Reception123 (talk) 19:21, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
  • The page redirected to is division (which explains division in general), and not the specific division method we are talking about. To my knolwedge, there are other methods of doing division. As of this writing, we don't have a page to redirect to, so it would probably be a delete --Eptalon (talk) 21:22, 22 February 2020 (UTC) I have written an expandable stub, that sums up the very basic idea. If kept, needs to be moved to the proper name (lowercase d). Please don't move while this RfD is ongoing, as it would break the link.--Eptalon (talk) 22:22, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
  • @Eptalon: Yours make sense, no objection to move to the lowercase + this needs to be a disambig page rather than redirect per en. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:30, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
    The disambig page should only be created when we have 3 different meanings, with articles attached. --Eptalon (talk) 21:10, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
    Then shall we move to Long division this one and close the RFD?--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:00, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
    Looking at EnWP, we also have 2-3 music albums and a novel called'Long Division'. So, when closing , move (with redirect). A disambig page only makes sense starting at 3 entries.--Eptalon (talk) 08:16, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

HungingEdit

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

Chenzw has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: This does not appear to be a grammatically valid form of the verb: the past perfect continuous form of "hang" is "had been hanging". We might risk confusion by leaving this as a redirect. Chenzw  Talk  13:47, 22 February 2020 (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.

DiscussionEdit

  •   Delete Just to be sure, I had a look and can't find anyplace that says this is actually a grammatically correct word, and as Chenzw says leaving it as a redirect would only confuse people. Reception123 (talk) 20:52, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
  • With stuff like Color and Colour this is reasonable as they're both acceptable...but since "hunging" is not a word, redirecting it to hang might make it seem that it is. Since there is no good place for this redirect to point to, I say to   Delete. Computer Fizz (talk) 20:54, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Beaneater00 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: described as 'scholar of homosexual history in italy', does not seem to be notable, 2 out of 3 references are to websites he created himself as stated in the article Beaneater (talk to me) (see my edits) 19:08, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • This is just a comment: There seems to be an Italian politician with the same name, who died in 1990 (1900-1990). So when you see the name mentioned, make sure we are talking about the person named Dall'Orto, born at the end of the 1960s (1968 or 69, I think). --Eptalon (talk) 19:17, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: 18 year old actor/actress, born in Denmark, with Indonesian roots. The English used in the article is very poor, and when searching for the name on Google, we get this page as the first hit, along a few social media sites (Facebook, and similar). Wikidata item was delete (notability); I propose we do the same with this article. Eptalon (talk) 21:37, 20 February 2020 (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.

DiscussionEdit

  •   Delete not a dictionary, like all rfds, can always be replaced with a new article but should be deleted in its current state as a dic-def. Computer Fizz (talk) 08:18, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Delete per nom. Chenzw  Talk  08:25, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Already in wikt, and so another item which could have been QD'd. Interestingly, the Basic English lists do not have it, which I suppose means they would use "take away" for this quite common concept. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:24, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
    Oh, that was my mistake. I looked on wikit, but mistakenly used an uppercase R which lead me to believe that there was no article so I thought QD A3 would have not worked. Reception123 (talk) 11:37, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
You could still A3 it now, it's just custom not to qd while an rfd is running. I also notice that many of the articles Arthur has created end up being quickly deleted, which is an issue. Computer Fizz (talk) 17:47, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
I know, that is why I chose not to QD since I already opened this and it will lead to the same result anyway, just slower. Reception123 (talk) 17:49, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
@Reception123: I'm misunderstanding -- did you choose to not QD because the RFD is running, or did you choose to not QD because of how many Arthur's previous articles have been QDed? Computer Fizz (talk) 20:01, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: I chose not to QD because now the RfD is running and I'd rather let the process continue. Reception123 (talk) 20:04, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  •   Delete The original article seemed to be made to advertise but now that the author removed those parts it still makes the article not notable. Reception123 (talk) 18:25, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Delete as blatant self-promotion. I also want to draw attention to the cited sources in the article, majority of which are simply repeating the same few paragraphs consistently, across sources. Source 6 even goes as far as to say this: "Disclaimer: This story is auto-aggregated by a computer program and has not been created or edited by Dailyhunt."

DiscussionEdit

  • Comment I haven't run the sources through google translate yet. But I must comment that "lots of sources" is the definition of notability. I don't yet know if they are good sources so I can't !vote one way or the other. But thought I should point that out. -DJSasso (talk) 18:05, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
    Typing too fast at night, I of course know sources (good ones) = notablity. Corrected with thanks. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:39, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

  •   Keep I'd go for keep on this one since to me the spokesperson of a ministry of Foreign affairs is a notable position. The article should be cleaned up, but I wouldn't delete on notability grounds. Reception123 (talk) 17:53, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
    • Based on an essay in enwp (not guideline or whatsoever but good reference) en:Wikipedia:Diplomatic notability, only head of missions can be deemed as notable, rest will need to meet GNG/BIO. This is a spokesman of the head of mission, a post that isn't that major in some countries, so we need to discuss. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:28, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
      • Well this is perhaps different, since the article you describe refers to heads of mission in foreign countries, while this article refers to a spokesperson at the foreign ministry, which in itself is not 'foreign' since it is in the host country. But yes, that essay could be relevant to this case too. Reception123 (talk) 20:55, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
        • Some countries spokesperson may be the same, some others may change every time. If there are like 100 spokesperson rotating in a year, they cannot be deemed as per notable. This we had to go by GNG/BIO which I don't see it fits well. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:26, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Jordanian poet and novelist; article was deleted on EnWP, because it had been created by a user who is now globally blocked. Seems to have at least been nominated for the "International Prize for Arabic fiction". Since almost all sorces are in Arabic, it is really difficult to determine if this person is notable, in an encyclopedic sense. I therefore ask the community to comment. And no, I won't accept "Created by a user who has been globally locked" as a reson for deleting this article. Eptalon (talk) 17:28, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Chenzw has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: An obsolete edit notice that probably should have been deleted 10 years ago. It is also worth noting that edit notices should be consolidated in the Template:Editnotices/* pseudo namespace instead of a standalone MediaWiki page. Chenzw  Talk  15:47, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Contested quick deletion. What we have is a one sentence stub; the article on EnWP is similar tro what we have. The one in Arabic wikipedia seems to be longer. If article remains like this, I see no option but to delete. Going through RfD to also provide a way to add content, to perhaps make this article keepable. As to search results, Wikipedia is the first hit, which points to possible notability issues.

  •   Comment Do also refer to the commentary by Billinghurst at Talk:Global Association of Economics Education.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:16, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
  • During my studies (In the 1990s, and 2000s), I saw AIESEC, as one organisation of several, who organized student parties with an "internatiional flair". If I believe Wikipedia, AIESEC was founded during or shortly after World War II. Sometimes AIESEC co-organised talks with a well-known speaker, but that's not what I remember them for. At the time I studied, work was done mostly by volunteers, and AIESEC had existed for roughly 50 years. If I look at the orgiabisation mentioned above, they were less than 10 years ago, and probably work along the same lines. For this reason, I think, that there was not enough time to develop notability, the same way AIESEC has in its 50-odd years of existence. What we have here should live as a section in the AIESEC article, perhaps with an additional redirect. --Eptalon (talk) 00:11, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Delete - cited sources are all either non-independent or non-significant coverage. Chenzw  Talk  13:52, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Delete due to the lack of proper secondary sources. I don't think making a section and redirecting it to AIESEC is a good idea since they are two different organizations and it looks like AIESEC has many partners so a section about this one is unnecessary.--BRP ever 23:11, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
