Wikipedia:Requests for deletion

(Redirected from Wikipedia:RfD)
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.

MathXplore has nominated this page for deletion for the reason:

According to Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2014/Categories showing mixes of national ancestry, it was decided that our project would not have these kinds of categories, and I do not see any reason to ignore that discussion. MathXplore (talk) 04:00, 28 September 2022 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • 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:

"To avoid the spelling controversy and perhaps an implied supposition that (all) people listed under a particularly ethnicity on these pages (always) share common values as a member of the particular group of "hyphenated Americans", that for instance a third generation Italian(-)American is somehow equally Italian and American, I suggest using the alternative naming "Americans of Fooian descent".

As Wikipedia:Naming conventions (categories)#Heritage reads: Fooian people of Barian descent 2600:6C40:5400:5E68:14F7:F0FE:C107:13B1 (talk) 01:30, 29 September 2022 (UTC)

  • It has not been copied. After creating the Simple English Wikipedia, I expanded the English Wiki. A label has the obligation to hand over everything it publishes, whether digital or physical, to the national libraries. It is also necessary to clarify which category a label falls under. It's a music company, but the charts can no longer be used as a reference as they have been proven to be manipulated. As a company, it should definitely be enough that Battl Victory Records is named and listed in the National Library in Germany and also in the Sigel-Staatsbibliothek. Likewise in MusicBrainz. Likewise, the amount of releases I could find is also sufficient in my opinion.
I'm not very experienced when it comes to deletion requests and where do I have to insert this {{wait}} or make a non-deletion request? DayforDay (talk) 06:54, 24 September 2022 (UTC)
@DayforDay As Ferien has opened a deletion request, you can no longer use {{wait}} to hold off the deletion process. It was meant to be placed on the article below the quick deletion template. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 07:07, 24 September 2022 (UTC)

  •   Delete - The general notability guidelines require independent, significant and reliable references to establish notability. I do not see a lot of that in the article. Most of them are primary sources, which are not independent of the subject, or are database listings, which are not significant enough to establish notability.— *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 07:12, 24 September 2022 (UTC)

Delete - I mostly agree with the above, though Justin Trudeau is of course notable, though the mention of him would be too trivial to mention in his article.

  • Alright SoyokoAnis, for your information, this is to tell you that this page was created on 2016 by User:Macdonald-ross. It went a bit revision. To me, the article doesn't have any defect except for the improper source that was added. It can be removed. So I go for   Keep-ing the article. Everything is according to the guidelines of simple wiki.--DMK-C5 (talk) 17:01, 21 September 2022 (UTC)
    @DMK-C5: I have put back the reference that you removed. Things can be used as references that are not reliable. It's just that they can't be used to establish notability. Whether the site is a reliable source might be up for discussion, though. Please explain why you called it an "improper" source. -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:11, 21 September 2022 (UTC)
  • Personally, I have no investment in this article, and won't mind whether it stays or goes. But I think the phrase is notable and interesting enough to be explained. The ends justifies the means is an important political idea. Macdonald-ross (talk) 20:59, 21 September 2022 (UTC)

  •   Delete Fails WP:GNG by the looks of it, although I agree that it was appropriate to decline A4 here. A postgraduate degree is not a product and it is important that quick deletion criteria is strictly followed - any unclear cases should go to RfD. --Ferien (talk) 19:07, 20 September 2022 (UTC)
  • Comment Universities offer products, courses which people pay for, at the end of buying and using enough of those products the consumer requests, and often pays separately for, a degree. They are products. We have enough traffic on RfD. Can't these non-controversial deletes go to QD? --Gotanda (talk) 06:21, 23 September 2022 (UTC)
  •   Delete. Actually, I think it is a product. People pay money, go on the course, pass the exam, apply for jobs with their degree. It is not general education. Such courses would not be offered if there were no market for the product. Not notable. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:10, 28 September 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.

DiscussionEdit

  •   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)

Delete absent more sources - I also cannot find anything to demonstrate notability or add to the article. I at most found the citation of a Fahad Al-Fank; even if this is the same person, which is likely, one mention in an article like that does not demonstrate notability. If he is known better under a differently spelled name, that may help here as if he were in fact one of the most prominent journalists in Jordan, he would seem worthy of inclusion.
