Wikipedia:Requests for deletion

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 change

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 lead.
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 deletion change

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.
  3. 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.
  3. 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)}}
  4. 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!

If this is too complicated for you, there are some gadgets like Twinkle that you can use. This allows you to do it faster.

Quick deletion change

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 user change

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.

Discussions change

  • 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) 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 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.
  • Requests for deletion is not a war zone. You can click here for more information, although the page is not in Simple English.

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.

  • Request to closing administrator If this RfD closes as delete, which it appears it is going to at this stage, please also treat Category:Spanish male handball players that is a near identical case to this as a G7 and merge the categories in the same way. Thanks in advance. --Ferien (talk) 20:47, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  •   Merge - I think given the numbers, it would make more sense to categorise irrespective of gender, as in Australian handball players (or Spanish handball players for that matter). --Yottie =talk= 21:57, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  •   Delete We had many discussions, which resulted in our CATGENDER guideline above. In the interest of treatimg all sportspeople the same way, I think we should do away with the split into male and female handball players. This means that we delete this category, and merge its entries into the parent (Australian handball players). --Eptalon (talk) 09:51, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  •   Keep I thought sport was one of the areas where categorising by gender was unavoidable, per point 3 of WP:CATGENDER. --Ferien (talk) 22:36, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    It says "in some cases". I don't think all sports cases require the separation. -- Auntof6 (talk) 16:02, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  •   Comment: -Same comment as the Australian male handball players above: depending on where you look there is no split into male/female, or there is one, but only if there are enough entries (more than 2) for a new category. It's inconsistent to say that in the case of the Brazililian ones we don't split, but in the case of another nation we do split. Also, as is, there are many cases, where we don't have enough entries for a category.--Eptalon (talk) 11:14, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  •   Keep per Ferien and per en:Category:Australian female handball players, If it exists on EN I don't see why it can't exist here, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 21:01, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Existing on enwiki is not a reason to keep it here. When we discussed and added WP:CATGENDER, we knew it was different from enwiki. -- Auntof6 (talk) 21:47, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Well it is when we pretty much follow everything EN does - article existence up until recently had always been on the basis of "if it exists there, it exists here" although sure this year that's gradually changed, Anyway I see more benefits to having gender-based categories than I do disadvantages to be honest but even if the EN category didn't exist I still would've !voted Keep anyway. Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 22:03, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    It had not always been that way. That's a convenient rule of thumb people sometimes follow, but it has never been a policy or guideline. We have quite a few articles that enwiki doesn't. But this discussion is about categories, not articles. Our category structure is different from enwiki's in many ways; this is just one of them, and it's one where the decision was deliberate. The issue here should be: should these categories be an exception to our guideline and, if so, why? -- Auntof6 (talk) 22:12, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I agree there and it's a rule of thumb for me too unfortunately, I'll be honest I thought the system was generally the same although obviously no where near as many due to population etc,
    Regarding your last point en does have en:Category:Canadian LGBT soccer players as an example however delving into all of that leads to complex categories and goes against the point of Simple so I guess actually it would make more sense to remove genders as that way LGBT or non binary gender-fluid and others can be created and then categorised as opposed to essentially those articles being orphans,
    Yeah I think because of the complexity of the categories it would make more sense to move all to Category:Australian handball players so   Delete for that reason, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 22:42, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    In general we have excluded LGBT/non-binary, there are just too few cases, and if we don't split for male/female, what's the point in splitting for LGBT/non-binary? Eptalon (talk) 10:19, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I thought it would make more sense to have all players in one category as opposed male, female, LGBT etc etc, I'll be honest I don't know if there are any LGBT handball players but I thought if there was then they could sort of be better categorised ?, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 11:23, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Have since found out Category:LGBT sportspeople exists as does Category:LGBT people by identity so that makes my entire rationale moot. Not sure why I assumed neither existed but heyho. –Davey2010Talk 19:37, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  • Request to closing administrator If this RfD closes as delete, which it appears it is going to at this stage, please also treat Category:Spanish female handball players that is a near identical case to this as a G7 and merge the categories in the same way. Thanks in advance. --Ferien (talk) 20:46, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  • I will restate it here too: I think this category should be deleted, and its content merged into the parent. We had long discussions, which resulted in our CATGENDER guideline. It makes no sense to classify by gender. So delete --Eptalon (talk) 10:15, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  • If we merged the two subcategories (Sportspeople from ..., Politicians from ...) into this one, we get a category with 4 entries (and can delete the subcategories Sportspeople...,Politicians...). The other way is to find another Sportsperson, politician, and other notable person for each of the three categories, so that we have the minimum 3 entreies, our guidleine requires.--Eptalon (talk) 14:38, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Eptalon, "by occupation" categories such as these are intended to be parent categories, in that they only contain subcategories. If the subcategories were deleted and the contents moved, then they wouldn't be sorted by occupation, so they'd just go into Category:People from Newcastle, New South Wales, leaving this category empty. --Ferien (talk) 15:19, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    In that case: find another sportsperson and another politician, do away with this intermediate category (which only has two entrires) Eptalon (talk) 15:25, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

G5 was implemented again fairly recently, with the condition we can still keep reasonable articles if necessary - which was the reason we didn't have it for so long in the first place. As G5 says, Any other user can ask for the page to be restored at Wikipedia:Deletion review if they want to improve it.
