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/2019/(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.

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Unclear notability; yes, MediaSet is a provider of Italian TV channels.

  • Keep Yes a television channel is all but inherently notable in the same way buildings are in that many people will take note of it. In this case it is an international channel with a very large reach. Its notability is beyond question. -DJSasso (talk) 10:47, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes, it can still be notable, and it is. Being state-run has no effect on the notability, and it easily meets GNG. Vermont (talk) 02:28, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • I would point out the first two sources are national media so not really local. Between those and the local ones it pases the requirement for multiple references from multiple sources. And there isn't a geoscope issue since there are national and sources from two more local sources in Guelph and Halifax. -DJSasso (talk) 16:01, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
They're national overall but the piece is a local affiliate doing the interview. Which is more to my point, they're all interviews based on a PR person doing their job and putting out press releases. It's not coverage of him. No one cares on a national or international level about an as of yet unnamed guest appearance in an unreleased Netflix show without push by PR. Praxidicae (talk) 16:08, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep I'm the editor of the page, few other editors helped me improve the page and save it from vandalizers. Recently, few IP address editors repeatedly attacked the page and tried to vandalize it. I don't know why few people are determined to delete the page. I know it's upto the Wiki community to decide, i'll respect their valued decision. Irene Germo (talk) 07:11, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Chedi Amir is eligible. I would like to keep this article , there are several articles of Chedi Amir , Chedi Amir is one of the first few Tunisian singers --Shady.photography (talk) 07:53, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Where are these articles? Because Chedi Amir doesn't exist on enwiki, nor can I find any articles of similar titles here. Computer Fizz (talk) 16:54, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
I added several references in Chedi Amir article , there is a several people which they have just simple enwiki articles but they don't have enwiki --Shady.photography (talk) 18:22, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

  •   Delete not notable. Having an English source is not a must(?) but it might/will, at a bare minimum, support the non-English sources to claim the subject's notability. IMDB is not a reliable source as it (like Wikipedia) can be edited by anyone. + seems to fail WP:MUSICBIO. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 09:39, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
The language of sources has no effect whatsoever on the notability of a subject. Vermont (talk) 10:55, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
Corrected my statement. Having an English source will at least clarify the statements made in the non-English sources. After all, this is an English wiki (simple or not) and not having a source that is in English doesn't seem to make sense. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 11:37, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
It's easier for English speakers to write articles with English sources, of course, but that does not mean English sources are necessary or that an article's notability hinges on the language of the available sources. Notability transcends language, and that's especially important on a project like the Simple English Wikipedia, where many of our readers have proficiencies in languages other than English. Vermont (talk) 15:33, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
Vermont is true. there are several articles that have references with other languages and are confirmed (example: Ahmed Halim ). however, I added two sources in English. Please, I want confirmation of this article. Thanks for your help . please check the article again --Shady.photography (talk) 16:07, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
Is there any particular reason why you want this article to be kept? Are you being paid for it? Vermont (talk) 16:10, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
No, I'm writing my first article on simple wikipedia. I want to succeed to write more articles on simple wikipedia and become a good editor --Shady.photography (talk) 16:32, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
  •   Delete as not notable per the above. I've been looking through the sources I can and honestly most of them either give a passing mention at best or are not reliable in the least. I'm not seeing a credibly strong claim either. Hiàn (talk) 01:34, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
Tuniscope , Kapitalis and Tunivisions are three eligible and notable sources in Tunisia . You can verify --Shady.photography (talk) 03:17, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
They very well can be (that is not something for me to judge) but all look like tabloids at best and Kapitalis makes no real mention of Amir, thus I'm not inclined to change my views. Hiàn (talk) 23:35, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
this is Chedi Amir's Facebook page verified https://www.facebook.com/ChediAmir/ --Shady.photography (talk) 00:38, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Whether or not Amir's Facebook page is verified is none of our concern. Social media numbers/profiles are not, in fact, a marker of notability. Hiàn (talk)/editing on mobile account. 15:38, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
I added another source and information. --Shady.photography (talk) 18:06, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Administrators : Could you keep the article with the tag (lack of sources) and in the future I will add more notable sources --Shady.photography (talk) 14:07, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
    You can't just make a request like that. Community consensus is the article should be deleted, therefore the article will be deleted so long as the consensus remains the same. You've had a week to find suitable sources for the article (more than enough time, if this guy is really as notable as you say). If you weren't able to find sources during the week-long grace period, you probably won't be able to in the future (just a thought). Hiàn (talk)/editing on mobile account. 18:04, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
