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 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.
  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!

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.

  • Link has been changed into Swift Xi. Thanks to @User:MathXplore for sorting out my confusion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DMK-C5 (talkcontribs) 07:59, 3 October 2022 (UTC)
    @DMK-C5 @MathXplore: I have undone the page move because it made the RFD template point to the wrong discussion. In general, please do not move a page that has an open RFD. Thanks. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:06, 3 October 2022 (UTC)
    Seems to be an edit conflict. The RFD started immediately after the page move. MathXplore (talk) 08:08, 3 October 2022 (UTC)
  • I asked for QD G4, see Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Swift Xi. MathXplore (talk) 08:11, 3 October 2022 (UTC)
    I saw that. I looked at the version that was deleted before. Although it's clearly about the same company, the content is somewhat different.

  • Dear Ferien. The sources are mainly news reports which usually focus on "people". These reports are good evidence of the existence and notability of the competition. Besides, the competition's website is listed in the reference. It includes all the detailed information about the event. Therefore, the page should not be deleted. It can be improved by adding more content about the competition itself. Hotspot Observer (talk) 16:07, 2 October 2022 (UTC)
    @Hotspot Observer: The competition's website is a primary source and does not show notability. Very few of the reports go into any more detail about the event other than naming it. --Ferien (talk) 17:33, 2 October 2022 (UTC)

    Please provide explanation for why the article should be kept, as MathXplore has given reasons for the article to be deleted. --Ferien (talk) 13:01, 2 October 2022 (UTC)
  • This is interesting: We get theen:Antarctic Treaty System, established 1959, effective since 1961. As many other states, the USSR is a partx in this treaty. As far as I can see, the USSR does however not have any claims in Antarctica. If I believe en:List of Soviet Antarctic expeditions, there were 4 or 5 Soviet Arctic expeditions (between 1947 and 1961 or so). There are a number (12?) of R Soviet/Russian research stations, but as far as I can see there are no Soviet territorial claims in Antactica. If this state really existed (1955ish-1960), I would have expected territorial claims by the Soviet Uniion. I am therefore keen to see what references can be found. Note again: references don't neeed to be in English, they also don't need to be accessible onlne.--Eptalon (talk) 15:38, 2 October 2022 (UTC)

Zaporozhye OblastEdit

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

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: One of the four regions Vladimir Putin recently annexed, in violation of international law. As to international law, we are looking at a war zone, part of which is controlled by Russia, who is the occupying force. After a hasty referendum, Putin announced that Donetsk, Luhansk, Cherson and Zaporishia would now be annexed. In my opinion, we cannot at the current time give an unbiased account, as we are smply lacking information, and secondly, keeping thisarticlewhich likely duplicates most of the article on the Ukrainian oblast, might give this some sort of legitimation. So: currently the only option is to delete this article (and other,similar ones, should they crop up). Opinions? Eptalon (talk) 16:27, 1 October 2022 (UTC)

  •   Delete The Ukrainian name is surely the most common name in English as well. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:44, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
  • Redirect to Zaporizhzhia Oblast Russian invasion can be mentioned but not in the way it was written in this article. This article opening with Zaporozhye Oblast [...] is a federal subject of the Russian Federation is just wrong, even if we did want to cover it separately from the legitimate Ukrainian oblast. --Ferien (talk) 21:37, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
  • Keep I think this article should stay. If Wikipedia only went by internationally recognized things, then we wouldn't have articles on the Anschluss or on Kosovo or Armenia (for example). InfernoGaming46 (talk) 13:44, 3 October 2022 (UTC)
    InfernoGaming46, there is a difference between Kosovo, Armenia and this. Kosovo and Armenia are both recognised as countries by a significant amount of the international community, Kosovo being recognised by around 100 countries and Armenia being recognised by almost every country apart from one. Compare that to this, this region has been annexed, and that can be reported on in the existing article - I believe only Russia have recognised Zaporozhye Oblast as part of Russia. The Anschluss was an event, and that is comparable to Annexation of Southern and Eastern Ukraine, another place we could add about this. We should have an article on the event, not on the new oblast making it look like this new oblast is recognised.
    If we want to focus on how things have been done on other articles: yes, there's North Korea and South Korea, they both claim all of Korea but in reality, when we are talking about them, we are talking about North and South Korea and the areas they actually control, not claim. And there is just one article for Taiwan and there is just one article for Jerusalem. --Ferien (talk) 16:55, 3 October 2022 (UTC)

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Contested quick deletion; possibly notable filmmaker from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Seems to have been a jury memer of different film festivals. SEWP is like the second hit on google, when searching for the name. We get a short article (stub) with some references. So, is this person notable? Eptalon (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2022 (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

  • @Eptalon, Are you stating that just because Google quickly picked up the page and indexed it, hence the page is not notable? I'm not sure what criteria are you trying to confer here. What does the notability of a subject have anything to do with the fact that the initially created wiki entry for the subject is a stub and is shown as the second result on a Google search?
Please judge notability based on the sources listed, also there's more on the internet and print media, which aren't listed here. Thanks. MoviegeekSouthAsia (talk) 17:23, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
To a certain extent, the length of the page ("stub") is irrelevant, and does not influence its notability. The reason the page is here is that it was a contested quick-deletion. We lose nothing by spending a few days (a week, actually) discussing whether this person is notable. And I clearly state: was a jury member at film festivals, usually they pick well-known people... Eptalon (talk) 18:13, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
@Eptalon, thanks for clearing that up. My apologies since I misjudged the RFD, never mind. Happy editing. MoviegeekSouthAsia (talk) 18:23, 1 October 2022 (UTC)

  • @DMK-C5, How is the topic not notable? There's significant thorough repeated coverage from media giants including dhakatribune, International Federation of Film Critics, NTVbd, The Business Standard, Jamuna Television, newagebd, Newsbangla24, Bangla Tribune, Prothomalo, etc. There are numerous other references from big media pubs. Also, there's extensive coverage in the Bengali language too. MoviegeekSouthAsia (talk) 15:07, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
The guideline which you referred to above, GNG, states: If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is to be notable." Now this person meets all these. How does this fail the guideline. Please elaborate your rationale in a more specific way. Thank you. MoviegeekSouthAsia (talk) 15:11, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
@DMK-C5, you've also tagged one more of my article, in which you weren't articulate either, you're vague with your rationale. Like in that, the reason u gave was: you "didn't provide any reliable sources per WP:RS guidelines". How come sites like goldenglobes.com, thedailystar, The Daily Observer, dhakatribune, fipresci.org are not reliable? Please explain and be more specific rather than straight up pointing out to broad guidelines (which my pages seems to meet). Thanks. MoviegeekSouthAsia (talk) 15:15, 1 October 2022 (UTC)

  • Besides a small nitpick that references 4 and 6 are duplicates are each other, this article appears to be decently written. I'm not sure of the credibility of the sources though and half of them are in Bengali with no English translation link available, meaning I had to check those using Google Translate, but I'm just going to assume they're good enough (which I actually don't do that much when it comes to discussions like these) and say   Keep, but barely. 172.112.210.32 (talk) 19:01, 1 October 2022 (UTC)

  • Yes, because there are many articles about different ethnic groups that should be included. I want to add the following categories to simple:
  • Hispanic and Latino
  • White (including Germans)
  • Asians
  • Chinese Americans
  • Mexican Americans
  • Puerto Ricans
  • Caribbeans (including Dominicians)
Also, should "descent" be change to "ancestry"? 2600:6C40:5400:5E68:F03D:9AF4:7A94:3D63 (talk) 06:50, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
No one is saying that articles shouldn't exist. This discussion is about categories, not articles. Also, you haven't explained why the article Ethnic groups of the United States is relevant to this discussion. -- Auntof6 (talk) 07:41, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
I think the article is related this discussion because white (including German Americans which are the most ethnic group) is the most common race in the U.S. that they (along with Irish Americans) would be notable enough to have their own categories. 2600:6C40:5400:5E68:F03D:9AF4:7A94:3D63 (talk) 09:04, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
Please remember that this discussion is about ethnic groups and national origin, not about race. Also keep in mind that notability applies to articles, not categories. There could certainly be articles about various ethnic groups and about Americans of different national origins, but that doesn't necessarily mean that categories are needed. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:28, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
@Auntof6:
  • Asian Americans
  • Hispanic or Latino Americans
  • German Americans
  • Mexican Americans
  • Arab Americans
All Qualify for categories here. 2600:6C40:5400:5E68:F03D:9AF4:7A94:3D63 (talk) 13:34, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
What makes them qualify? -- Auntof6 (talk) 17:11, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
Anna May Wong was first Asian American to star in a Hollywood motion picture, Sammy Lee was first Asian American to win an Olympic gold medal for the United States, and Hiram L. Fong was first Asian American to run for president of the United States. So categories for Asian American qualify. 2600:6C40:5400:5E68:5418:3E6D:BACC:D9EF (talk) 00:03, 29 September 2022 (UTC)
That makes the articles for those people qualify, but not Asian Americans as a group. Just because there was a member of a group who was the first from the group to do something, or even notable for some other reason, that doesn't mean the group itself needs a category. Remember, the issue here is categories, which equate to groups: either ethnic groups or groups of people of certain national origins. The issue is not the notability of individuals in any of those groups. -- Auntof6 (talk) 01:06, 29 September 2022 (UTC)

Mayumashu stated in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2007_February_8#American_people_by_ethnic_or_national_origin:

Recently closed deletion discussionsEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

I think it is time to close this discussion. The result is categories for deaths, births, and years should be kept, while categories for establishments should be deleted. Only two articles will be affected by this, Medes and Roman Republic. I will remove the deleted categories from those pages, and perhaps any discussion on their re-categorization can be held on those respective talk pages. As mentioned in the discussion below, if we wish to change the set precedent on the exception to the 3-article limit rule, that discussion should probably take place on Simple Talk. I am a little uncertain how this discussion itself should be categorized, as successful or not. 50/50 toss up. I think I'm going to do something weird and put it in both categories. If that is a problem, I'm not overly attached to either outcome, so any change to that would be fine. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:36, 4 October 2022 (UTC)

Category:1617 BCEdit

Category:1617 BC (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Lights and freedom has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: A large number of year categories in BC which are unnecessary. Each of these categories contains either 1 article, or 1 subcategory that contains 1 article. That is not always bad, but at this level, the articles can just be moved into the corresponding DECADE categories. The whole point of categories is to group things together, and the decade categories could do this more effectively. It would make it easier for readers and there would be less steps to click through.

Note: On enwiki, year categories (en:Category:Years) end at 699 BC, while decade categories end at 790s BC. The year deaths/births categories go back further. Simplewiki is supposed to be simpler, so I propose the year, year births, year deaths, and year establishment categories end at 499 BC, but this can be discussed.

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.

  •   Delete - Unnecessary NytharT.C 08:54, 20 September 2022 (UTC)
  • I have mixed opinions:
  • Keep categories for years, births, and deaths. We have always considered these to be exceptions to the 3-item rule. When we know the exact year of something, especially the year someone was born or died, it's good to have it in the exact category.
  • Delete categories for establishments, and recategorize contents. These categories have not usually been considered to be exceptions to the 3-item rule. Also, establishments of some things are sometimes not in just one specific year.
Those are my thoughts. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:45, 23 September 2022 (UTC)
@Auntof6 The only items contained in the year establishment categories are Roman Republic and Medes. So are you proposing these be moved into the "decade establishments" categories? Lights and freedom (talk) 02:31, 24 September 2022 (UTC)
@Lights and freedom: I suppose I am. By the way, I just removed the category for the Roman Republic from the establishment category; usually the (dis)establishment categories contain articles for the things that were established, not categories for them. -- Auntof6 (talk) 05:02, 24 September 2022 (UTC)
  •   Keep years/births/dates categories per Auntof6. As these have always been exceptions to the 3-item rule, we should discuss somewhere else more visible, perhaps at simple talk, before deleting these categories. No opinion on the establishments. --Ferien (talk) 06:13, 30 September 2022 (UTC)

The outcome of this request for deletion was to   Keep. After thinking for a long time, I decided to keep the article. Even if there currently doesn't seem to be a (universally recognized) state by that name, the article we now have is alot more thorogh than the one that was deleted last time. Given the current sourcing, I don't see a reason for deletion. And the question whether enWP has an article, is entirely different.--Eptalon (talk) 21:17, 1 October 2022 (UTC)

Hockeycatcat has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: The overall tone of the article seems negative, enwiki doesn't have an article on this. I'm not an expert on this subject, but the page seems out of place. It also talks about a newscaster for seemingly no reason. Hockeycatcat (talk) (changes) 23:40, 22 September 2022 (UTC)

  •   Comment: Article has been deleted before, so it may be eligible for QD G4. Hockeycatcat (talk) (changes) 05:59, 23 September 2022 (UTC)
    @Hockeycatcat: No, it is not. See the page history: I declined QD/G4 because the current article has more content and references than the one that was deleted before. Remember that G4 is for when the content is the same, not just the title. -- Auntof6 (talk) 06:18, 23 September 2022 (UTC)

Ferien has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Appears to fail WP:GNG. The one reference doesn't show notability in my opinion, and the only things I can find online are social networks and EverybodyWiki - a wiki often used for articles that have been deleted from Wikipedia. --Ferien (talk) 09:39, 24 September 2022 (UTC)
