User:Bdj/DRV is Broken

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Wikipedia:Deletion review (DRV) is meant to be an appeal for mistaken or misguided deletions. While the process works a good deal of the time, there is no guarantee that the process will result in the correct outcome - overturning a speedy deletion that did not meet speedy deletion criteria, deletion of an article that was kept improperly at articles for deletion, etc. While some mistakes are expected, the level of error at DRV is much lower than the actual level, and this page is intended to be a collection of such.

Reviews[edit]

For each daily log, I'll link to the log, note the number of reviews, and note the number incorrect, with a second bullet point explaining. Withdrawals, "consent of closing/deleting admin" closures, improper forums (challenging a redirect, for example) and prod undeletion requests are not included in these counts.

2007[edit]

March[edit]

  • 1 March - 4 reviews, 1 error
  • 2 March - 5 reviews, no errors
  • 3 March - 2 reviews, 1 error
    • Jeopardy! in popular culture - although relisted, was done so because of "no decision." Clear error in original AfD closure in terms of COI and AfD consensus.
  • 4 March - 10 reviews, 1 error
    • Re:sound - a proper A7 deletion, even if the show is notable.
  • 5 March - 4 reviews, no errors.
  • 6 March - 6 reviews, 1 error.
    • EGullet - AfD demonstrated necessary sources, DRV mentioned more. Still remains a redlink.
  • 7 March - 11 reviews, 1 error.
    • Jewdar - AfD showed new sources, no relist anyway. Still a redlink.
  • 8 March - 4 reviews, no errors.
  • 9 March - 7 reviews, 1 error.
  • 10 March - 3 reviews, no errors.
  • 11 March - 8 reviews, no errors.

  • 14 March - 4 reviews, 1 error.
  • 15 March - 2 reviews, no errors.
  • 16 March - 5 reviews, 1 error.
    • Rickey Smith - Verifiably met standards, improper AfD closure endorsed anyway.
  • 17 March - 3 reviews, no errors.
  • 18 March - 3 reviews, 1 error.
  • 19 March - 9 reviews, 2 errors.
    • Matrixism - Reliable sources provided, speedy still endorsed and article remains salted.
    • Dean Roberts (criminal) - Notability and sources provided, deletion still bizarrely endorsed even after faulty arguments were addressed.

    • Red wings (sexual act) - Inappropriate speedies and incomplete AfDs made this outcome improper. Still a redlink.

  • 23 March - 2 reviews, 0 errors.
  • 24 March - 2 reviews, 1 error.
    • File:Airforce-ti.jpg - faulty deletion of public domain image based on poor OTRS request that was granted. Erring on the side of caution is good if no one else cares, maybe, but not a discussion for DRV, and the deletion was improper.
  • 25 March - 1 review, 1 error.
    • Brian Peppers in popular culture - No violations, no policy issues, and banks on the mistake deletion from a month earlier. Making the same mistake twice is still a mistake.
  • 26 March - 4 reviews, 2 errors.
    • Internet troll squads - Deleted over a consensus of keep at AfD. Endorsed anyway.
    • Hadouken! - Did not meet speedy criterion at the time of deletion. Still a redlink.
  • 27 March - 4 reviews, 1 error.

  • 30 March - 7 reviews, 1 error.
    • Subcategories of Category:Gaelic Athletic Association All Star Awards (football), Category:Gaelic Athletic Association All Star Awards (hurling) - a mess of categorization, nom was 100% correct.
