Talk:Individual action on climate change
The Community Portal said that the page Individual and political action on climate change needed to be split. I took the info that I thought was right for the individual action and made a new article. I couldn't figure out how to change the title, so I left it the way it was. I'm only trying to become a certified Wikipedian. Please don't delete this page. Pchittg2 (talk) 21:09, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
- Hey Pchitt. You're reacting well to having one of your firsts attempts at creating an article nominated for deletion. From what I've seen, that's a great first step as almost everyone's first attempt at an article is deleted. Mine was. I'm not saying that this article will definitely be deleted but as it stands, it's basically just the text from another article. If you want to create a new article, I would start it in your userspace. I'll ask an admin to userfy this article for you so that you can work on it while it's not in mainspace. Feel free to ask questions here or on your talk page if you want. I'll be watching both. OlYellerTalktome 21:14, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Whether or not the split is desirable is for consensus at the talk p. of the original article, about which I have no opinion. But I see no reason for a speedy deletion, as the material does not at present duplicate. Speedy criterion A10 does not apply to splits. And if the decision there is to undo the split, the original text there should be restored, not the material eliminated.
The actual split was done improperly by copying the page as it appeared, not the coded wikitext from the edit window; this loses the references; I re-did it, using the version at  DGG ( talk ) 22:01, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
