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.
  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/2020/(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.

  • Comment - The only possible usable source is the Forbes (1) it's a feature article about the subject and the rest look like they're junk sources.

DiscussionEdit

  • Comment - The article is currently badly formatted and source bombed (with many being trivial mentions of the subject), but I think she may pass the notability guidelines for WP:PROF, where: "1. The person's research has made significant impact in their scholarly discipline, broadly construed, as demonstrated by independent reliable sources." Found this on Harvard - Kennedy School a clip of her being interviewed as subject matter expert on CNBC (Africa). If (and only if) the mentions of awards and recognitions can be properly sourced, I think I'd vote a Weak Keep on this one. — Infogapp1 (talk) 16:03, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Infogapp1 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Unable to find sources about the claimed awards (as I've only found one press release), article creator also removed the German sources I've found. Current copy shouts promo for a probably locally significant (yet globally unnotable) person and probably fails to satisfy GNG either as entrepreneur or sportsperson.

DiscussionEdit

  •   Delete - no independent coverage. IWI (chat) 05:55, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment I might have used a few PR but the company does meet NCORP. You will find independent news coverage if searched with its previous name BumpYard such as this[1], this[2], this[3] and many more like this[4]. Kindly check because if the article is kept, I intend to improve it further. Regards. Kaijurtal (talk) 07:05, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
    • Those sources do not provide significant coverage. Chenzw  Talk  02:46, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
      • Please, check this one[5] which is from a reputable source and has in-depth coverage. Kaijurtal (talk) 08:54, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
        • That is not an acceptable source. It is basically a full-length advertisement written by the company itself. Chenzw  Talk  16:38, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
  •   Delete Agreed with IWI. There are no independent reliable coverage. Went through the sources and they're mainly puff pieces. This one, for example, supposedly from US News is in their 'Classifieds' section which means no Editorial checks or oversight was ever involved in the creation of the article. — Infogapp1 (talk) 16:05, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

  • Comment - I'm seeing several articles she penned, but I don't see them being covered by independent sources for their relevance, hence I am voting Delete. Addendum: I see quite a lot of hits on HuffPost and other places which she wrote (as a contributor), I don't see many external sources covering her as PROF or her work as AUTHOR. 1 NPR review looked alright to me, but the other one is an interview, in this case, I am leaning towards Delete. — — Infogapp1 (talk) 18:42, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
  • comment meets wp:creative -"3. The person has created, or played a major role in co-creating, a significant or well-known work, or collective body of work. This work has been the subject of an independent book or feature-length movie, or of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews." = NPR twice, kirkus, publishers weekly. -- Slowking4 (talk) 01:26, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
    • I don't think the work(s) created have met the threshold of "significant or well-known" as required by WP:CREATIVE. Our version of the guideline got butchered slightly during simplification, but the intent of the guideline is that the work(s) must both be "significant or well-known", and have been the subject of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews. Chenzw  Talk  02:54, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
    • that is an interesting interpretation of "significant" i do not see any reason to second guess NPR, a reliable source, which chose to review her work.Slowking4 (talk) 19:45, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
      • The notability guideline explicitly distinguishes being "significant or well-known" from "been the subject of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews", and states that both criteria should be met. At no point did I dispute NPR's decision to review the book. Kindly refrain from putting words in my mouth. Chenzw  Talk  02:49, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Infogapp1 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: The subject seems to be covered in trade blogs, but since they don't necessarily fall under reliable sources, I doubt whether those are enough to establish notability and pass Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies).

  • Re-voting since additional content was introduced to the article - as it stands, the subject seems to fail GNG, so voting for delete on those grounds. Chenzw  Talk  13:55, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
  • I originially Quick-deleted the article (A4-notability). As it stands: We are looking at a person in his early 20s, doing video game programming. In essence: Someone doing the job he was trained for. Looking at google: SEWP is position 1, first page is essentially social media sites. So even if I wanted to give this guy a chance, I do not see anything I could derive encyclopedic notability from. Between 1964 and 1966, Joseph Weizenbaum (1923-2008) developed a program called ELIZA. Eliza works as a therapist; Weizenbaum did this to show how superficial therapy can be. Many people were not aware they were talking to a computer program. Anyway: what we have here (and in several other Wikipedias) is a very short article about a programmer in his early twenties.

@Chenzw: I read again the GNG, but it's more like for actors or film makers and developing and programming is really different things so not failed from that because not related the subject to the GNG. @Eptalon: you was deleted the page quikly (QD: nonsense, vandalism)!!! and that make me confused so I left the message on your talk page, also how many people do you know the making the game for PC?! here is dozen articles available for example Tim Cain and Alexey Pajitnov, and hundred more on EN wikipedia, so why should this delete? because of age? it's like a joke man, also don't forget many of articles available for persons in this age for example for fotballers, actors, singer, ... Feloniii (talk) 17:18, 28 June 2020 (UTC)Feloniii

Notability is about being talked about in reliable third party sources, for example. As you point out, he's young, and if he did an academic career, he won't have many peer-reviewd publications yet.So the only other option I see to showhis notability, is to showthat he won some prizes or awards, or that he got talked about (omre than an interview), in some newpaper. Life as a programmer is hard, and there are many. Almost everyone knows games such as Sim City, or Transport Tycoon, and few people know who delveloped them. So: unless you can show with rliable sources, that this person is notable (and different form the zililons of others out there), he is just the guy who does what he was trained for. --Eptalon (talk) 21:19, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
@Eptalon: That can be different by region, when I saw the famous person streaming his game on twitch, first word came to the my mind is how well known him in public, the games you mentioned almost are from big companies and not 1 person working on that type of games, and about prize and awards I can say how many events we have related to that in middle east? man when the Iran is under the US boycott even publishing the game is hard thing and most of the developers have problems. that industry is part of our life even effected on our family and children, how many game developers we have in middle east(my mean is for PC or for consoles)? man you know better also you will decide about this page, so please forget about the age and academic career because they are not meaning in 21th century. sir please agree with me, it's ok with video game and Iran stubs.

You are incorrect - GNG can apply to everything: If a topic has received important coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to be notable. Chenzw  Talk  17:51, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
@Chenzw: I didn't find anything about that related to the subject on this wikipedia, can you link it here? so what rules used for other developers?
I am not sure what you mean by "I didn't find anything about that related to the subject on this wikipedia". How can you possibly not know the above quote if you have read the GNG (as you claimed)? Chenzw  Talk  18:09, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

  •   Delete. Basically a promotional page whose sources do not verify notability. Macdonald-ross (talk) 05:21, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment - Current article is very badly sourced, but I'm seeing some hits on Google News such as 1, and 2, and 3 and 4, which may be enough to establish his notability as a DJ/composer. — Infogapp1 (talk) 10:37, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Paula WhiteEdit

Eptalon has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: This article was started as a 1:1 enwp copypaste, by an IP editor, who pasted almost 50k of wikitext here; so we may have a possible conflict of interest here. Looking at sites such as this one, this seems to be a businesswoman spiritually close to the Donald Trump administration, who is now using religion to further her career. So there's at least a claim to notability. Yes, there are pastors/evangelists who are notable, but is she one of them, and does she deserve an article here? - What I currently see is one, perhaps a group of people with a conflict of interest, pushing an agenda, to further her career. I may be mistaken, though. Eptalon (talk) 16:10, 27 June 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

  • Keep - I am not sure what this RfD is trying to achieve. From a policy perspective, the article was eligible for QD A3 the moment the anonymous editor created it. Now that the decision has been made to trim (and/or simplify) the article, I see no reason that the article qualifies for deletion. The subject meets GNG, and depending on whether you consider White to be a politician, also satisfies crtierion 1 of NPOL. In my view, to ask whether she deserves an article here misses the point - I may not necessarily agree with the current administration's policies and practices, but that's not my call (as a Wikipedia editor) to make. The question being discussed at RfD is: "is the subject notable according to our policies?", not "is using religion to further one's career a valid reason to be notable?" Chenzw  Talk  17:28, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
  • As far as I can see the only clearly valid claim for notability is "chair of the evangelical advisory board in Donald Trump's administration". Assuming that receives funds and does something meaningful. A lot of the rest is hoopla, puff, and should be redacted. Macdonald-ross (talk) 05:38, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
    As far as I can tell this so called board is controversial. It looks like there are requirements for boards/assemblies counseling the White House or the president (FACA, whatever that stands for).There may be violationns for the group in question. It looks like the board was set up, so that Donald Trump would also get votes from the some of the more conservative religious communities.--Eptalon (talk) 20:56, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Keep Looking at the sources, I believe she has crossed both religious and political significance and the association with the current administration may have given her a much wider interest. Whether I like it or not, I am only voting based on the reliability of the sources: NYT, HuffPost (by staff writer), and other sources, she seems at least have GNG. I think what we could do instead, is to add Advert tag in the current copy unless someone works on making it more neutral. — Infogapp1 (talk) 10:20, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
On second thought, maybe not Advert, but the tag that says "the neutrality of this article is being contested" or something along those lines. — Infogapp1 (talk) 10:22, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

I suggest you visit his BoxRec or any of his active web sources thoroughly and acknowledge the work he has done for the Sport and community of Boxing Athletes. Additionally, a South Indian movie director is yet to film his Biography to inspire the sportsmen and overcome challenges in their life.

Infogapp1 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Article creator being new and potentially SPA-aside, I have doubts about the claims. While I can see there's ample mentions and coverage about the subject, claimed awards and recognitions, I have my doubts about whether the films he was in/produced are notable.

Then there was the comment article (http://incredibleorissa.com/en/dayanidhi-dahima-film-maker-at-the-age-of-20/) - it could be simply a case of someone being jealous, or seeing that it may not necessarily be a real coverage?
