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 change

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 deletion change

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!

If this is too complicated for you, there are some gadgets like Twinkle that you can use. This allows you to do it faster.

Quick deletion change

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 user change

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.

Discussions change

  • 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) 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.
  • Requests for deletion is not a war zone. You can click here for more information, although the page is not in Simple English.

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.

Confession (Catholicism) (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Three Sixty has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: I moved this page to Confession of faith because it was about the incorrect topic. In Catholicism, "confession" usually refers to the Sacrament of Penance, not saying that one is a member of the Church. This means that this redirect goes to a different, unrelated topic. Since there does not seem to be a Simple English article for this topic, the redirect should be deleted to stop confusion and encourage users to start a new article. ⟲ Three Sixty! Talk?

  • I have written/brought over the page Confession, it is kind of a disambiguation pafe. I suggest we rediect there. Note also: COnfession as a confession of faith can be found as a ritual in many religions. Confession (as in telling a priest, and seeking forgivenness) is not limited to Roman Catholicism: The Eastern/Oriental Orthodox have it, the Old Catholics kept it, the Anglicans likely have some form of it...- so: keep, but redirect to a different page.--Eptalon (talk) 20:29, 1 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discussion change

  •   Keep Thanks BigKrow for your critical review,
I created this page because Dj Tubet is the only rapper who uses the Friulian language in his songs and freestyles.
The Friulian language is not spoken or understood by many people in the world, and is a language definitely at risk of extinction according to UNESCO (2010) in the Atlas of World Languages in Danger.
Dj Tubet is also the first in Italy to bring hip hop disciplines into the educational field with his hip hop pedagogy, he was also the fastest rapper in Italy until 2023.
In addition to the prize at the European Festival of Songs in Minority Languages, he has also won numerous freestyle competitions.
As we read in the article in the Nigerian online magazine, he is an underground rapper not famous on a mainstream level. https://buzznigeria.com/us/fastest-rapper-in-the-world-list-of-top-20/
I think it's nice that he can also have the Wikipedia in English for his uniqueness and typicality in expressing himself in Friulian, a language that risks becoming extinct ;-)
Sincerely
Soon

He is a good artist. I went to his concerts. 143.111.84.236 (talk) 19:00, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree, DJ Tubet is a rapper mentionable in this wikipedia... I think the notes on the page are more than credible to make the page notable... if you think so you can change the form of the sentences on the page if they give a poor impression encyclopedic.... as a rapper he is very valid and is one of the few Italians to have won an award with his group Dub at the European music festival Liet (very important for minority languages)... he is a pioneer of hip hop pedagogy... and he is also one of the fastest rappers... the only one currently singing in the Friulian language... 217.201.219.138 (talk) 19:32, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •   Keep - Hello everyone,

I read the page and I believe that although Dj Tubet is an underground rapper, his person is notable on this wikipedia. he is a good freestyler, he has won many freestyle competitions, he was one of the 16 finalists of the Italian “Tecniche Perfette” competition in 2008. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tecniche_Perfette He won second place at the Italian final organized by Ita-beatboxers & Tecniche Perfette“Microphone Masta 2 vs 2 Battle” in 2010. In 2021 he was the fastest rapper in Italy Dj Tubet also fully enters the international rankings of the YouTube channel "NahDahVebb" in thirty-fifth position among the 150 fastest rappers in the world according to calculations updated to 2021. Furthermore, in the ranking of Latin rappers he appears in seventh place. Among the recognitions he has received, I would like to point out the victory in France at the Liet International (a sort of Eurovision contest for songs in minority languages) with R.esistence in dub in 2010. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liet_International Dj Tubet is known for bringing freestyle and the Friulian language into schools, concerts, reggae environments and large festivals such as Rototom Sunsplash and Sziget. He is also also a pioneer of Hip Hop Pedagogy which he has also been bringing to schools since 2007. https://twitter.com/DjTubet/status/1586618996048150530 Newspapers in paper form that talk about DJ Tubet: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.295643848813&type=3&locale=it_IT Other newspapers or websites from which I took the information I wrote: https://www.vicinolontano.it/ospiti/dj-tubet/ https://buzznigeria.com/us/fastest-rapper-in-the-world-list-of-top-20/ https://www.udinetoday.it/eventi/album-dj-tubet-dicembre-2020.html http://www.minoranzelinguistiche.provincia.tn.it/notizie_minoranze/notizie_nazionali/pagina203.html Thanks for your attention Sincerely 95.232.232.37 (talk) 10:22, 23 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  •   Merge So just a quick WP:BEFORE before brings me right to Encyclopedia Brittanica and at the end of the article it states

  Comment: The place designated as a UNESCO heritage site is the city/area of Lumbini, as stated in Encyclopedia Britannica and EnWiki. The grove or park is a part of it. But the question is, does it need a separate article? – Cyber.Eyes2005Talk 13:35, 1 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Cyber.Eyes.2005 I don’t use en wiki as a reference and it’s a bad form to. Like I said just a quick before that came up. The article I pointed to says it’s a “grove”.

  Keep I don't understand how Rodger can't be notable. He is the one who shot the incel community into the mainstream and has made people inspired to do attacks like his almost ten years later. [1] [2] [3] [4] There are multiple articles talking about his mental health [5] [6] [7] [8] and Rodger's rampage also inspired and made women talk about sexism and misogyny and stared the hashtag #YesAllWomen. [9] [10] [11] [12]. He also caused the hashtag #NotAllMen, where men said they didn't have the same viewpoints like Rodger and wouldn't murder women because of it. [13] [14] [15] [16]. They also looked into his online life and how he was racist, hated women and talked bad about them, and was already looking to murder these poor college students [17] [18][19]. His rampage also brought forward more calls for gun control and inspired multiple laws that are now enacted [20] [21][22] [23].

Category:Global South change

Category:Global South (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Auntof6 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: I don't think we need this category.

Reason 1: According to English Wikipedia, Global South refers to developing countries. (It does not, despite the name, refer solely to the Southern Hemisphere.) This term is not simple. If we really need a category like this and we are willing to do the maintenance needed to keep up with changing world situations, we could call it something like "Developing countries".

Reason 2: This is yet another way to group countries, and we have more than enough ways already (by continent, by various sometimes-overlapping regions, and probably others). Having a category like this would lead to duplicating category subtrees for countries that fit the definition.

After work I did to eliminate overcategorization, the only things left in this category are Category:Africa and Category:Conflicts in West Asia. I also don't think those categories belong because there are countries in both Africa and West Asia that are not developing.

For what it's worth, this is one of the categories created by an editor who has since been blocked for category-related issues. Auntof6 (talk) 19:20, 14 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  •   Delete as a pointless redirect.- FusionSub (Talk page) (Contributions) 09:03, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •   Delete I was the editor who asked for QD. My main issue with redirecting these is that they are phobias. That is way different from an article about what someone is afraid of and the redirects of Cisphobia, Transphobia, etc. going to this article should not be in place. They can be standalone articles, however, the tag I placed is because it was a copy-paste of wikt. We are not a dictionary, so the articles should have some substance to them besides saying Oh this is the fear of cisgender people (as that is a dictionary entry). — Preceding unsigned comment added by PotsdamLamb (talkcontribs)

*:It shouldn't be deleted. Came for information on this individual and got it, also it's back up by citations.

* While traffic has continued to incline from the trends regarding Minaj on the internet, this information page is not directly one sided. It provides information of a celebrity/figure similar to other standalone within the same space. The information tying this figure and their legal issues is the same as any other celebrities publicly available legal troubles. The act of suppressing public information then makes the information less easily accessible to others. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:1C2:C001:6E70:D09:C3CD:CEC6:1E8F (talk) 20:18, 21 February 2024 (UTC) Only edit is to this post Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 04:12, 28 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, --Gotanda (talk) 23:13, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Hello all. So-called illegal immigration likely is a problem almost everywhere. But please keep in mind that likely, most of these peoplr are refugees, all that they have they carry with them. In all likelihood, the also paid other people to get them to a safe place in another country. LAmpedusa is about 200km souuth fo Scily, and about 140km east of the Tunisian coast. It is part of Italy, and one of the hotspots of immigration into Europe. The island is about 8km long, and has a population of roughly 4.500 people. In 2011, there were about 6.000 refugees. Look at the Greek island Samos, which is just 2km from the Turkish coast. Total poulation, about 32.000, about 17.000-18.000 refugees during 2-3 months in summer 2023... - So to cut the ramblings short: I don't know the situation in America, but a single event where perhaps a few hundred people get caught landing on a beach somewhere, get caught by popice, is likely not notable on its own. What I could see though is an article describing the general situation of (illegal?) immigration into California, to regroup these single events. And sorry to say so: Migration is a difficult subject, positions such as "... immigrated illegally, ... gets sent back" are usually too short-sighted.--Eptalon (talk) 19:58, 17 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I would prefer that we not repeat the politically motivated "illegal" framing here (NPOV). As you point out, refugees and asylum seekers are not entering illegally. Legality or illegality must be decided in a court of law. And, a single entry by a small group is hardly notable. --Gotanda (talk) 22:25, 18 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •   Delete - Not a notable event. No sustained coverage after early February. If this is part of a larger issue in 2024 then it should be merged into an article about that but I'm not seeing it. I also agree that the redirects are violations of NPOV by labeling the immigrants as illegal.— *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:05, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •   Delete — As the article creator, I agree with deletion as a non-notable event. However, I do not believe the redirects are violations of NPOV, due to immigrants who evaded capture by law enforcement are, in fact, “illegal”. If they were legal, law enforcement would not have worked to arrest them. But nonetheless, I agree with deletion and subsequent deletion of redirects (under the term of it being a redirect to a then-deleted article, not due to NPOV). WeatherWriter (talk) 23:59, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Wow. People are "in fact, 'illegal' " because law enforcement are pursuing them? That is creating some facts out of whole cloth. Arrest is at best on suspicion.

213.55.226.115 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: These categories are for two short-lived counties in Norway and their subcategories. Both of these counties were created on 1 January 2020 by combining two previous counties and then split apart on 1 January 2024. I have created new categories for the new counties into which these were split, and transferred all the pages from here into the new categories. 213.55.226.115 (talk) 11:04, 28 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kk.urban has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: I don't think we should have categories for "Middle East and North Africa". To keep things simple, we should have one category for North Africa and one category for the Middle East. Kk.urban (talk) 19:29, 8 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hadith rejectors change

Hadith rejectors (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

Gotanda has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Tried REDIRECT to the much more common Quranism, but was reverted. Hadith rejector as an identity does not seem to be used widely if at all. All of the interlanguage links point to Hadith criticism as an activity or set of ideas which some Muslims follow, not a well-identified group of people. Google searches for terms like "noted Hadith rejector," "leading Hadith rejector" yield zero search results on Google. An n-gram comparison of "Hadith rejector" and "Quranism" clearly shows the latter as the preferred usage. Hard to check many of the cited sources, but this seems like OR. One that is easy to access (Listiverse) clearly identifies Quranists as those who reject hadiths. Others also seem to describe rejection as an attitude of various Muslims--not a distinct sect or identity. Gotanda (talk) 01:12, 8 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
