Wikipedia:Deletion review

If you think a review of a deletion discussion is needed, please list it here and say why. Users can then comment to reach an agreement on whether the community thinks the discussion was closed correctly, or the decision should be overturned. Each user can say if they want to endorse the closure, or overturn the closure, with a brief comment, and sign with ~~~~.

A page should stay listed here for at least 5 to 7 days. After that time, an administrator will decide if there is a consensus (agreement) about what to do, and take appropriate steps. If the consensus was that the discussion was closed correctly, the discussion should be closed with a note saying this.

Current requestsEdit

User talk:SrinivasEdit

Was not eligible for U1. I’m not sure that this page is pure disruption too, so it should be restored. Darubrub (Let me know) 12:38, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

  • Page restored I’m not quite sure why it was deleted, but it does not appear to be eligible for U1 as a legitimate talk page. --IWI (talk) 12:57, 1 July 2021 (UTC)


There needs to be an undeleting on the article Zambabi now. ( (talk) 23:10, 7 June 2021 (UTC))

Endorse deletion. The article was a clear hoax, based on the article about Tanzania. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:24, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Cat racismEdit

Whilst there was consensus to delete on the RfD here, the page was not eligible for G1 deletion. It was written in English that made sense and so it is not, in any way, eligible for G1 deletion. Furthermore Macdonald-ross was involved in the deletion discussion so he probably shouldn't have deleted it himself. --Ferien (talk) 14:56, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

  • We should not split hairs over this kind of page. Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:54, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
    I don't think it should be restored now. I just don't think it met the QD criteria back then and an RfD would have been fine. --Ferien (talk) 18:56, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
Well, we need to keep in mind that RfD is overloaded and slow. By clearing the decks with obvious cases we free up RfD to grind on remorselessly with more debateable cases. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:27, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
No No No. We should never speedy just for the sake of speed when QD is not applicable. The being slow is the point. Please stop using QD criteria when they are not applicable, its an abuse of your tools. -Djsasso (talk) 12:19, 30 June 2021 (UTC)

Skirt steakEdit

I doubt whether the article is too complex enough for a deletion. I edited the article in the same format as the other steak articles (listed here). I would like to hear other thoughts about this. Darubrub (Let me know) 18:03, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

@Macdonald-ross: Pinging Macdonald-ross --Ferien (talk) 18:01, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
I would not object to all those pages being reinstated. Having said that, the terminology is basically North American. Why is that? why not pickup at least French terms and make it less one-dimensional? I don't see why we need to have a set of parallel pages, when they could all be put together under one heading. Many of the top chefs use French terms, at least in the UK. There's about 22 of these terms, and they could all be consolidated IMO. Anyway this is all beside the point. I agree the pages can be reinstated, and I apologise for not discussing them beforehand. Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:40, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
Is there a link to the 22 terms? Darubrub (Let me know) 18:43, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
I was referring to the French wiki categories at the time. There's 48 pages in the En wiki category; 22 in the French category. I think fewer than ten are regularly met on menus. If I was doing this area from scratch I would list those ten in English and French with a brief explanation of each, and do it on one page. Is it appropriate to do copies of all the separate pages? We know our readership is not sophisticated outside of pop culture! Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:56, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
Restore Definitely was not an A3. -Djsasso (talk) 14:30, 5 July 2021 (UTC)

Idris of LibyaEdit

Rationale for deletion doesn't make sense: obviously a notable individual as they have an article at enwiki and multiple language Wikipedias. If restored, we can easily add information and citations from enwiki if they are needed. --Bangalamania (talk) 23:30, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Yes, most-probably notable, if you look at en:Idris of Libya. The problem is just that what was deleted here was some graffitti, which didnt have to do muh which the subject in question. --Eptalon (talk) 14:39, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
