Notice Coming here to ask why I deleted your article? Read this page first...

If that doesn't help, read these FAQs.

1. Why did you delete my page when I hadn't finished writing it?

Answer: Don't create new articles unless you are sure they meet wikipedia's criteria, particularly notability and verifiability. If you want to practice, there is the sandbox facility and Wikipedia:Articles for creation where you can get a second opinion from a more experienced contributor. And if you really can't help yourself, use {{underconstruction}} so other people will know you are still working on it.

2. Why did you delete my page for advertising? I wasn't trying to advertise!

Answer: Read Wikipedia:NPOV for guidance on how to word an article so that it doesn't sound like an advertisement.

3. Why did you delete my page for advertising? It was about a non-profit organisation!

Answer: Non-profit organisations advertise all the time - it's still promotion and the rule applies to them just as it does to commercial bodies. See no 2 above.

4. Why did you delete my article without warning?

Answer: Because you are not entitled to a warning if you don't follow the guidelines. See no 1 above.

5. Why didn't you do a google search and find references for my article and put them in for me instead of just deleting it?

Answer: Because I don't have time to do the boring bits for you. I have enough boring bits of my own to work on, thank you.

And please SIGN YOUR POSTS, otherwise I don't know who is asking me the question!

thank you for the advice :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Newsha7 (talkcontribs) 10:02, 5 August 2014 (UTC)


Hello Deb,

I hope my page is ok now. It's my first on Wiki in English. I have a job from my university to update and create pages for teachers and artists in all languages. In Romanian Wiki it wasn's difficult. Thank you for help

Con Moriarty[edit]

Why did you delete the article I was constructing for my father Con Moriarty, who was a well-known rugby player and local politician? I really cannot see any reason why my entry should have been deleted in such a rude way, and frankly find it very offensive that you did so. Please re-instate it.

Southampton University Pre-Sessional Course[edit]

It's back. Up to you if you want to delete it again. I proposed it for deletion. I believe this might be related to Caroline Jane Williams and the associated AfD. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 19:28, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Alison Booth - Belmond La Samanna[edit]

I've read through the guidelines again and see why you removed the Belmond La Samanna page. Could I have another go at it please? If so, perhaps you could let me know what the best procedure would be. Many thanks, Alison — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alison.booth (talkcontribs) 14:41, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

==Thank you - do I just upload another new Belmond La Samanna page, or do I put the new content on the page where it says the page has been deleted? I see you have also tagged another page for deletion - could I have another go at it now, before you take it down pse? I am going through other articles right now that you have commented on, and addressing the comments in turn.

Sahana Software Foundation[edit]

Hi Deb - I noticed yesterday that you corrected the speedy deletion action on the basis of being overly promotional for the Sahana Software Foundation article, since it wasn't promotional. You instead added the notability and needs sources templates. I just added additional sources, and also added awards and recognition to demonstrate sufficient notability. If you are not watching the page, please review when you get a chance, and if the article now meets your threshold, please remove the tags. Otherwise advise and I'll add even more sources, including references to the company's participation in Google Camp, its role with the City of Los Angeles earthquake preparedness efforts, and the fact that the Foundation was the genesis for the Free and Open Source Software - Humanitarian (FOSS) group.Timtempleton (talk) 02:40, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Redirect?[edit]

Why did you redirect Cut (EP) to Aaron Yan's page?  SmileBlueJay97  talk  16:49, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

You need to stop vandalizing and deleting people's articles. Someone stop this person! She should be banned from wikipedia! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.202.1.48 (talk) 05:21, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Someone please stop this person from vandalizing other people's webpages! How do you report her to wikipedia? She is deleting so much LEGITIMATE content on other people's web pages. I read the link she posted and none of what she deleted fit the criteria for deletion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.202.1.48 (talk) 05:41, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

(stalking) I had a quick look, and it appears that Deb reverted a pending change that might not have been the best option, which was subsequently re-reverted. It's probably a simple mistake. It happens, we're human. Now, IP, please could you learn how to sign your posts and then drop the stick and back slowly away from the horse carcass because frankly it looks like you are harassing Deb for a pound of flesh, and that's never a good idea. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 12:36, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Per Ritchie333 and the ANI thread, it's best to not revert a pending change just because of a missing edit summary. It's better to accept the edit and leave the person a talk message asking them to use edit summaries in the future. 71.202.1.48 is of course being unnecessarily rude, but that's being discussed separately at ANI. 50.0.205.237 (talk) 14:41, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Hello, I do not believe I am being unnecessarily rude or harassing for a "pound of flesh" or stalking her. If you take a look at the history for the page in question, and if you actually look at the posted diffs on the ANI forum, you will see that she has made several deletions, not just once, but THREE TIMES. Frankly, it seems to me that Ritchie333 is being rude to me by implying a pejorative stereotype against me.71.202.1.48 (talk) 18:45, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, Mr. or Ms. unregistered editor, whether you are being rude in the usual sense, you are being stubborn and arrogant in refusing to listen to the advice of multiple other editors, who have told you to use edit summaries, sign your posts, stop the personal attacks, and stop being so confrontational. Regardless of the extent of errors by Deb, you are disrupting the encyclopedia, and I request that an uninvolved administrator give you a one-week block. Robert McClenon (talk) 21:05, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Deb: Please consider whether, in spite of being wrong about his or her whole approach to Wikipedia, the unregistered editor may have made valid edits to May 22 that should be accepted. A stopped clock is right twice a day. The unregistered editor is wrong about everything else, but may be right about the edits. Robert McClenon (talk) 21:05, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
