Wikipedia:Requests for deletion

(Redirected from Wikipedia:RFD)
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/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.

DiscussionEdit

To add on to the reasons for my nomination: References 1, 3, and 4 are links to the subject's music, reference 2 is a link to a French-language Google search for the subject's name, and reference 5 is a link to a nonexistent page on http://chartsaroundtheworld.com, a music charts website.

J. R. R. Tolkien's influencesEdit

J. R. R. Tolkien's influences (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Article about "why" Tolkien wrote "The Hobbit" (one of his two main works, the other is "The Lord of the Rings"): While all of this may be true, the article is almost unwikifired, and does not have inline citations to support the claims made. I alos know that the person responsible for his literary heritage (Christopher Tolkien?) recently passed away. I think that the subject of the article may certainly be interesting, but that its current presentation is not optimal. Question to the community: Delete, as essay, or spend time, finding similar writings on other wikis? Eptalon (talk) 22:10, 26 January 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 - when articles talk about an author's influences, we typically expect some discussion of and comparison between the works of other influencing authors. That does not appear to be what this article is discussing. A redirect to J. R. R. Tolkien could also be considered. Chenzw  Talk  02:23, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Shibuya Junior and Senior High SchoolEdit

Shibuya Junior and Senior High School (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: This looks like a high school in Tokion, taking grades 7-12 (the 12-18 year olds). I don't think high-schools are notable, no matter who runs them. So, delete? Eptalon (talk) 17:17, 25 January 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

I have confirmed that there are other articles on high schools (or secondary schools) on this Wikipedia (examples being Wallington High School, Bernards High School). I have particularly noted that there are even articles on high schools in Japan (examples being Yahata High School, Dokkyo Santana High School). In addition, this article was translated from the Japanese version on their Wikipedia. Because of these two points, I assumed that there were no problems regarding the school’s notability. I believe that this request for deletion is unjustified. H2C2O4 (talk) 23:47, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

I have semi-protected this RfD; there's both an IP and a named editor trying to disrupt the process. --Eptalon (talk) 19:54, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Out of the three references, one of them is the google maps location, the second is an indian portal which makes no mention of the studio, and the third is the studio's website. So there's no notability claimed at all there. Additionally, some of the now oversighted diffs lead me to believe that this article was created by the owners of the studio, and for promotional purposes.   Delete. Computer Fizz (talk) 21:56, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

PublicEdit

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

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: IP editor tried to create a reasonable page, trying to explain the different meanings of "public" in English. Right now, the article has little encyclopedic content. So, dear community: do you see a life of this article beyond a dicdef? Eptalon (talk) 17:44, 23 January 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

  Merge into some other pertinent article, or possibly even keep this article, with a rewrite of large sections or the entirety of its content if necessary. The article is not bad enough to warrant a complete deltion, especially given the relatively very poor quality of the articles we have seen nominated for deletion recently. A similar article (Public) exists on enwiki and was nominated for deletion in 2011, and they resolved to keep it. Beaneater (contact me) (see my edits) 20:25, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

NOW EntertainmentEdit

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: American record label, originally listed for quick deletion (A4 - notability). The article features almost 20 refrences, and isn't written in a promotional tone. Since record labels are not my world, I'd prefer to go through a regular RfD, rather than do a quick deletion. What does the community think? Eptalon (talk) 08:33, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Jonathan FoleyEdit

Brantmeierz has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Looks like a standard self-promotion article. Very hard to find any results indicating notability when searching (this article itself is one of the top results) and the page being essentially a list of mentions (and a personal website) seems to be scraping up every possible online reference for recognition Brantmeierz (talk) 23:00, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

  Delete Self-promotion devoid of significant coverage in reliable independent sources. Has actually been speedy deleted three times on enwiki, as Jonathan Foley [1], as Jonathan David Foley [2], and as Draft:Jonathan Foley [3].

  •   Delete per nom. Desertborn (talk) 07:35, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Hold. First of all, having no enwp or other language pages aren't a reason to delete pages. Someone who done nothing but to create this page is a SPA (Single Purpose Account) but that doesn't mean we delete all SPA articles. Since the nom find lots of sources according to her company, please allow time to evaluate the sources. Unless this is a UPE/COI case (which can be), there is no grounds to delete the article as it is relatively well sourced. If I have the time I will do sources review but the nom rationale isn't that sound. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:38, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
    • Seems not that complicated overall, source 1 is from CNET and give an in depth interview coverage of the subject, source 2 is from Business Insider which mentioned her well, this way pass the independent, multiple, in depth coverage of WP:GNG. I don't see any major self promotion. I still think this can be a sophisicated UPE piece, but having no edvidence otherwise, I am compelled by AGF to   Keep--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:43, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

  Delete This is about a fictional device in a children's television show, and there are only two sentences. There is no formatting or wikicode. In general, a bad article that is not notable. Beaneater (contact me) (see my edits) 07:28, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

  Delete I'd be okay with having it mentioned in Gravity Falls, but it's not notable enough for its own article. I also can't figure out for the life of me what "the number of how many letters in the alphabet you went ahead." is supposed to mean. Computer Fizz (talk) 07:33, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • What is the benefit of holding RfD's for every not-currently-used userspace project page rather than slapping a historical tag on it? Seems to me that the only result is a waste of a bit of time. Vermont (talk) 12:10, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Depends on the page itself. Sometimes its to prevent things from showing up in searches. Other times it prevents them from showing up in automated listings of pages. Remember our Afd also acts as prod and as Mfd would on en.wiki. No one has to actually comment on the deletion discussion and it will just get deleted so it doesn't even have to waste any time. -DJSasso (talk) 12:15, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Delete - Usually would be against removing userpage/subpage content, but given the user's status and page's status as a dead WikiProject proposal deletion is appropriate cleanup. Brantmeierz (talk) 00:24, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment - I removed the wikiproject category, that part of deletion rationale is gone.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:54, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
    • And I put it back. Removing the category doesn't make it not a WikiProject. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:10, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
      • @Auntof6: Yeah, I agree. I am just responding to Djsasso point where the category may misled people into thinking it is a wikiproject. It still look like a wikiproject. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:27, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
        • @Camouflaged Mirage: It is a WikiProject. It was labelled as one when it was created. What makes you think it's not? --Auntof6 (talk) 09:39, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
          • @Auntof6: I did not say it did not. I just said that based on Djsasso "Technically it could because its categorized as a wikiproject which could lead users to believe it is a wikiproject", I thought that by removing the category, it can partly alleviate some of the concerns of putting a category of Wikiproject which will led people to believe it is a wikiproject. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:44, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
            • @Camouflaged Mirage: There's nothing wrong with leading users to believe it's a WikiProject if it is one. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:15, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
              • @Auntof6: Got your point. For me personally I am ambivalent about deletion. On one hand, it is practically useless to keep this, on the other hand, if we delete this based on confusion, we might as well comment it out (with <! --> ) as deletion of such pages and starting a deletion page will cause more server strain as the page is still there, though not visible to public eyes. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:54, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
          • @Auntof6:The fact it is in a page called Sandbox. It is clearly the user preparing to create a Wikiproject before they actually did. Sandboxes are scratchpads, not the final product. In fact before you changed the category on the page a few years ago it was very clear based on the categories that it was just a copy from en.wiki. Should never have been categorized the way it was in the first place. Instead of changing the category like you did you should have disabled the categories. If they had moved the page out of their sandbox then you could have changed to the appropriate category. -DJSasso (talk) 13:15, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
            • @Djsasso: I don't believe we have any page name requirements for WikiProjects. People can use pages named sandbox if they want. Also, it's only content categories that aren't allowed in userspace: WikiProject categories aren't content categories -- in fact, since WikiProjects here are all in userspace, the WikiProject categories have to be in userspace. I recategorized the page to use the WikiProject category we have here. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:25, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
              • There is a point where you have to use common sense. A sandbox is a users temporary draft space. It would clearly not be intended to be live if it was in their draft space. Items in sandbox space should have their categories disabled and as pointed out this is in sandbox space. It was not in any way a wikiproject. -DJSasso (talk) 16:28, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

  • I'd be okay with moving this into the author's userspace if he wants, but I don't see why this is a template, so   Delete at this time. Computer Fizz (talk) 18:26, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Yeah I should note I am ok with that as well. That was the solution over on en.wiki too I think for all 3. -DJSasso (talk) 18:27, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
@Drbogdan: In that case, you may want to tag the original pages with G7. Computer Fizz (talk) 21:31, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: - Thanks for your comment - not sure re G7 (newbie w/ some of this) - tag pages w/ => {{sd}} - or something else? - iac - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 21:40, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
@Drbogdan: Yes, just go and add {{qd|g7}} to the top of all of the template pages. Does this answer your question? Computer Fizz (talk) 21:48, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
@Auntof6: I noticed you denied the page sole creator G7. There is a consensus here that this can be G7. Can you just allow the author wishes? Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:35, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
If no one has said keep in the rfd and he is the sole contributor then it can G7 but since I nominated it I won't take action. -DJSasso (talk) 10:40, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Part of the G7 criterion is "created by mistake". This was created five months ago: page creators usually know sooner if it was a mistake, and if it was a mistake they don't update it so many times after creation. The better option might be to close this RFD early if people are anxious to get the page deleted. --Auntof6 (talk) 13:50, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
It's not a big deal, but a mistake doesn't really have a time limit for when they realized it was a mistake. Generally if a user is the only author of a page they can have it speedied. Time or number of edits never really comes into it. -DJSasso (talk) 14:11, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

The challenge reads: "Non-significant-This is a disingenuous article related to a group in Nepal that hold inflammatory and extremist views.
