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|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

See also: Category:Deletion requests

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

See also: Wikipedia:Deletion review
  • 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.

  • Yeah it is normally nulled out so it doesn't get imported. Sometimes it does and doesn't get caught. Like this time. Has been reverted back to the nulled version. I have no problem with it being deleted, which is what I used to do when it would get pulled over, but it is generally better to leave it as the nulled out version so it doesn't repeatedly get pulled over and subsequently deleted. -DJSasso (talk) 03:12, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

A poem by Boris Christov (Boris Hristov)

https://poetrytranslated.wordpress.com/2017/11/05/horsie-dear-of-mine/


*Boris Christov, a writer and a poet, is one of the most prominent Bulgarian writers nowadays. Unfortunately most of the information about him could be found only in Bulgarian language, although his bilingual books (Bulgarian/English) The Wings of the Messenger, Words on Words, Words and Graphite could be found in the US Library of the Congress! — Preceding unsigned comment added by ‎ Borisdari (talkcontribs) 17:50, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

References in other languages are allowed. Being in the Library of Congress doesn't show notability because copies of all books are sent to the LOC. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:41, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Russell SuraskyEdit

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

Macdonald-ross has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Lacks evidence of notability. This well-written page by a PR agent shows the subject to be qualified and competent, but not clearly notable. He is a DO: an unusual qualification, meaning doctor of othrthopaedics. He has specialities in neurology and psychiatry. The real defect from our point of view is that he lacks the kind of awards which would mark him out as notable. Remember, doing a competent job is what is expected of a person with a professional qualification. Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:30, 21 February 2019 (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 I'd argue for a medical professional to be notable, they should be in a major news story or have made some pioneering discovery. Agree with OP; being good at their job is an expectation. PrimordialTaco 10:47, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Has anyone actually looked this guy up? He seems to be out there on the front lines saving lives with the opiate epidemic. Patient review sites are not high levels or proof but there are hundreds of 5/5 reviews from patients online about him. His also is the only physician who is board certified in neurology and addiction medicine. That certainly seems notable to me. Also the pharmaceutical company thats mentioned (Alkermes). They make an injectable medication called Vivitrol. This is a new once monthly injectable medication which completely blocks opiates from entering the brain. He is a national speaker for this company. I have definitely seen articles on here with way less notable/interesting people. EARTHSCIENCETEACH 4:15, 21 February 2019 (EST)
  •   Keep Doing a search for Dr. Russell Surasky nets many results including numerous news sources. I think EARTHSCIENCETEACH is probably correct in that having multiple board certifications is very rare, although I don’t know if that alone would make him notable. True, his competency is not enough to support notability, though looking at his ratings he is no doubt that. The three areas which most likely grant notability are his consultations, his role in a high-profile lawsuit, and his social media following. It looks like he is regularly consulted for news reports because of his medial expertise. The 22.5 million dollar lawsuit against CVRJ seems noteworthy all on its own. And he has almost 100,000 followers on Instagram, which is practically minor celebrity status. --PhobosIkaros 03:23, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
  •   Keep Surasky has got plenty of media coverage and seems to be the only physician in all of United States to be board certified in both neurology and addiction medicine. Furthermore there is no other physician with the credentials FAAN, ABAM and ABPM after their name. I don't see any policy which states that a person is notable only if he has won some award that is arbitrarily considered to be major or made a pioneering discovery. We cover every sportsperson to appear in a single competitive match, regardless of whether he scored a goal/run or not, let alone win some award. AnniCool (talk) 16:38, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

  • The man can play Super Mario on the Xylophone, that's instant notability! But seriously, his early life and service is honorable but not particularly notable. It looks like his "claim to fame" is probably his work with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and musical inventions. Is being nominated for a Grammy enough? Probably not, considering he was only one member of an orchestra, but it does contribute.

  • Redirect I have decided that it may be best if this article instead be redirected to a separate article titled "List of WWE Raw Tag Team Champions".0737290632t2x273n (talk) 14:38, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
  •   Redirect but someone would have to put in the time to improve if they feel knowledgeable about it. Current title seems silly anyway ("By length...?") PrimordialTaco 10:58, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Rfd isn't for cleanup. If its out of date put an out of date tag on it. That being said I just fixed all the issues. It is still up to date. The title means by length of the reign which is something that is commonly talked about for such championships. It is a notable topic. And as I said it is now up to date with a few minute fix. -DJSasso (talk) 12:06, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Elements of musicEdit

Elements of music (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Vermont has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: It is one person/entity’s list of musical elements. I checked the enwiki article to see how they wrote it, and it is much more vague, focused on different people’s writings about elements of music, as there is no universally agreed upon set rule of elements (hence why I support deletion rather than rewrite). I had thought to transform this into a list of musical elements, although there is no single list that all/most reliable sources agree upon. Vermont (talk) 14:36, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • Comment Hoax is A6. So could have been a valid QD. Haven't looked into it yet to say either way. -DJSasso (talk) 16:46, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Fortunately, the article has not been deleted. How can we? In English, this page exists. In French, this city is still called "Mogadiscio". To have uniformity, perhaps it would be necessary   Merge. Simply. Regards. --Eihel (talk) 20:58, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • As much as Eihel has a point, the actual Italian rule of Mogadishu can prove a valid topic and enwiki already has a fairly good article covering the topic. Leaning towards keep and cleanup but I can't attest to the quality of the content of the current page. Hiàn (talk) 21:03, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
    If enwiki has an article, it's another chapter. Just like enwiki is not going to look if Simple has an article to approve or not the elaboration of an article. Is this what you wanted to write, Hiàn, or I did not understand? --Eihel (talk) 21:45, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
    I'm unsure as to what you mean. Can you rephrase or elaborate? Hiàn (talk) 22:08, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
    You write "and enwiki already has a fairly good article covering the topic". Wikipedia Simple English can have an article on the same subject. --Eihel (talk) 23:02, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
    Unfortunately you misinterpreted my comment, I'm afraid. I am by no means implying that because the English Wikipedia already has an article covering the topic the Simple English Wikipedia shouldn't have an article covering the same topic but instead implying that the English Wikipedia article has information and images that we can incorporate into our local article. Please stop misinterpreting good faith comments - I voted keep, no? Hiàn (talk) 23:34, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • In my book, this is a clear keep. Somalia (as well as Eritrea) was under Italian rule, pretty until the 20th century. The article we are looking at has neithewr been vandalized, nor is it a blatant hoax. Fot those not familiar, look at en:Italian Somaliland, en:Italian Eritrea; the (probably non-recognized) country Somaliland is close to to en:British Somaliland; it was occupied by Italy, in 1941 or 42, and administered from (Italian) Somalia. TO get back to the subject: this article is a 'clear keep. There is room for improvement, but there are no reasons for deletion.--Eptalon (talk) 21:59, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • The bulk of this page was a copy/paste from the original editor, and its text is too complex. However, the previous history makes the older name notable. I suggest the page is reduced to a link to Mogadishu, but adding a subsection to explain its older names. It's the same place, not two different places!

DiscussionEdit

  •   Delete as non notable. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 18:37, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
  •   Delete. In fact I would quick delete this as an obvious hoax. Look at the Google results: Only 17 found. The first two are to Simple WP (the article and this deletion request). All the remaining are to an 11-year-old school boy at Mountview middle school in Massachusetts. The company he supposedly founded (Chill.me) does not exist. Voceditenore (talk) 07:35, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
  •   Delete same reasoning as Voceditenore --Eihel (talk) 10:05, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Not only is this a spoof, but the editor has created other spoof bios, none of which are genuine as far as I can see. He should be G-locked and all his pages nuked. I hold off the ones on QD because this one is still under consideration, but we should speed up here if we can. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:30, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Praxidicae has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: complete fabrication of notability, down to the "mtv" link which is user submitted. No actual coverage and fails any sort of inclusion requirements. Praxidicae (talk) 19:43, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • Author of the article: Dear author hi article is not spam. Ayselonline (talk) 19:59, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
    @Ayselonline: What is being debated here is the Notability. The reason is visible on the article page and above. To change this, visit the previous link and also these links: Wikipedia:Citing sources and Wikipedia:Reliable sources. The opinions expressed go in the same direction: the sources must follow this guideline ("Always use of high quality references"). If you find them, add them in the article and propose to keep the article here. Cordially. --Eihel (talk) 10:52, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
  •   Delete "complete fabrication of notability", all is said. WP:RS is missing, even with a search. --Eihel (talk) 22:01, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  •   Delete as lacking notability. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:33, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  •   Delete as non notable. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 18:34, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Leaning   Delete as topic has some notability in Azerbaijan but this does not seem to warrant an English article. It appears the Scots language page was already deleted. --PhobosIkaros (talk) 16:18, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

  •   Delete as is not an encyclopedia article: out of project scope. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 18:41, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Hiàn has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Non-notable person. Can't say I think the references in the article are verifiable - they mostly consist of fishy links. Fails WP:GNG.

  • With the article as is:   Delete I found links profusely on Google, but it does not look ok (source of scale?). Sorry for contributors-publishers --Eihel (talk) 20:45, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
