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!

Nobles law firm page[edit]

Hello Deb!

If you will look at page accurately you will see no difference from other law firm pages. The main goal was to inform (and there was reliable sources like The Lawyer and Global Legal Post did you see it?)! in 2013 there was a spin off of Noerr Kyiv office, the main message is - re-branding. Check by yourself Noerr or other pages. Could you tell me which part you consider as advertising/promotion before just deleting it. By deleting unreasonably article of Wikipedia first-timer you do not do a good job. I would appreciate if you show me evidence or restore my article! There are dozens of similar pages and i use links to Noerr page and to The Lawyer publication about re-branding. Plus where i can find original article?

Oasis Beverages Page[edit]

TimeCamp Page[edit]

Hi, Deb!

I've made some changes according to Wikipedia guidelines. Could you have a look and tell me if it's okay? Draft of TimeCamp article is on my user's site. I would be very grateful if you helped me with this. Thank you! Jan Goldewski (talk) 12:31, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello, Deb!

Could you tell me which parts of my TimeCamp article was against G.11 ( Unambiguous advertising or promotion )? I saw couple of articles that was completely similar, but they are not deleted. Your opinion will be very helpful for me to write this article again, but this time correctly. Thank you very much! Best regards. Jan Goldewski (talk) 19:17, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi @Deb:! Long time no chat! This user has come to me requesting adoption with regards to this page. Would it be a time sink or do you think there's actually something here that could be worthwhile? Dusti*Let's talk!* 12:56, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

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)

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 (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 (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. is of course being unnecessarily rude, but that's being discussed separately at ANI. (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. (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)
I don't think I'm being stubborn and arrogant or unnecessarily confrontational at all! I am just trying to prevent her from disruptive editing. And please tell me, how am I making any personal attacks? And I am signing my comments. I do not feel a block would solve anything. (talk) 22:56, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Getting back on a clean page[edit]

Hi I got my page deleted because of a too promotional content. - Fair enough, I tried to recreate it (with a new content) but I still have the spam tag. How can I make it clean with the dsame page name? Jayham1971 (talk) 10:44, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Sumant Sinha[edit]

Hi! I see that you've twice speedy-deleted Sumant sinha as G11 (and that Alexf deleted it as G12). It's back among us, as Sumant Sinha this time, complete with promotional tone and copyvios from and Can you do the honours again, or should I list it at WP:CP?

Franz Sparry[edit]

Hello, Deb, I was wondering if you still think this person is notable, and if you can help verify it? It's been tagged for notability since May 2008 (apologies if I've contacted you about this one before). There's currently a big drive to try to get the backlog at CAT:NN to less than six years (it's a six and a half year backlog at the moment). Thanks in advance for any help you can offer, Boleyn (talk) 19:32, 23 August 2014 (UTC)


Hello Deb, You had no business whatsoever deleting the page I created for the Greater Hartford Church of Christ. I posted the history as it was written by an elder of the church, Jim Fuda. I will be remaking it with the SAME EXACT content and would appreciate you people leaving it alone. If there is an "advertisements" in the page it is simply trying to bring more souls to Christ. The history is a straight forward history of the church and is in no way. shape, or form, an advertisement. Furthermore, any business or company that creates a page on here is advertising their business. Again, I would appreciate you people leaving my page alone.

Thanks --VinnieA81 (talk) 11:47, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Mike Settle song[edit]

Hi, thanks for volunteering to fill in the references for Sing Hallelujah (Mike Settle song). I was going to do it myself but you beat me to it. Good luck. I'll go to the gym for an hour and pick up when I get back. Thanks again. Cheers. In ictu oculi (talk) 12:34, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Frightfully amusing (not). Deb (talk) 14:22, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
You can communicate then. In ictu oculi (talk) 16:51, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
What's the issue exactly? You created an article without references - you know as well as I do that's not how it works. I can't be here 24 hours a day to answer your comments. I am not sure what I've done to give offence. Deb (talk) 17:18, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Might as well keep talk in one place. I think the issue is the 7 minute jump in, lack of courtesy and communication and the rather unhelpful edit summary. You're presumably able to distinguish a stub likely to pass WP:GNG, and there's no burning urgency to work under the 10 minute line is there, so why do it? In ictu oculi (talk) 17:23, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
You know better than to try to start an argument like this. There is no reason to create a stub without references. That's what your sandbox is for.Deb (talk) 17:48, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Instead of telling editors what they know and what they know better, let's look at what you can do for editors. For example you could link to guidelines. So for example your next comment here could be a helpful link to a guideline which clearly says that a stub being created should be blanked/redirected if there is not yet a footnote. In ictu oculi (talk) 17:55, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
There could - if I didn't know that you are not a newbie and you already know that. Deb (talk) 17:57, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you realize that you just did exactly the same thing again, you told an editor what they know. Well here's the thing, where then is the guideline that says that? Where also is the guideline that says a separate sentence is needed for stating a place of birth? In ictu oculi (talk) 18:04, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
The Manual of Style for Biographies says that the place of birth should not go between the brackets. There is no guideline that says what an administrator should do when an article is created without the requisite references; there is one that says "The burden to demonstrate verifiability lies with the editor who adds or restores material, and is satisfied by providing a citation to a reliable source that directly supports the contribution." You chose not to do this. I took an appropriate course of action which caused both of us minimal inconvenience. Deb (talk) 19:01, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
No, sorry, but MOS:BIO doesn't say that. Yes someone tried to add it, but there was lengthy discussion about the merits of such a rule and the sentence was reverted. If someone is an admin and intends to defend edits by saying "an administrator" I believe they should declare this on User page. And yes you did cause me inconvenience, due to your 7 minute blank I lost the sources as I was adding them the first time. In ictu oculi (talk) 01:04, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, not sorry, MOS:BIO does say exactly that. There was debate about whether it should be removed, but no consensus that it should be. Nor is it possible that you lost the sources as a result of the redirect. Deb (talk) 17:59, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Fundacja Niczyje[edit]

Hi, I appreciate that you do important work deleting junk, but with this page I think you bit a newbie and could have been more constructive by tagging the page rather than deleting. Just a thought! Malick78 (talk) 16:03, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

  • yes Malick78 he deleted it twice see--it here. But I think Deb is right for its deletion. Deb action did not appeared to me as bitting newbies. There is enough room and lots for newbies to learn before article creation. However, the deletion must be speedy because the article met the criteria for speedy deletion. Meanwhile I don't want to believe that you never read the FAQ at the top of this talk page. If you haven't done so, kindly go back to read it. Thereafter you may leave an helpful note on his talk page advising him not to recreate the article so as not to keep wasting his precious time. Wikicology (talk) 16:40, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I've told the girl (yes, a female not a male ;) ) who created the article to improve it, and I'll check the results in a minute. I also read the FAQ at the top, but I don't see why a notability tag couldn't help. The newbie who created the page didn't realise it had been deleted the second time and only understands because I have explained it to her. Malick78 (talk) 16:45, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I did think about it. After the first deletion, I went to her page and asked her to read the guidelines (as you can see from her talk page). When she immediately recreated it without any improvements, I deleted it again. I have just done so a third time. I'm sorry that she doesn't understand the guidelines, but that's not my fault. I am, however, wondering why she created it under that title instead of its correct title of Fundacja Dzieci Niczyje. Any ideas? Deb (talk) 16:58, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Deb, you deleted it a third time despite my contesting it on the talk page. That's just rude and inconsiderate. You are not helping and should have answered on the talk page. I'm trying to teach the creator how to edit properly and you are being counterproductive. Malick78 (talk) 16:56, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker)That's what the Sandbox is for.Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 16:58, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Because she is new. Really, many people don't understand our way of working and are intimidated by it. I suspect she'll not trying editing here for a year or two yet. She may not even understand you can leave messages for her (she's a student of mine but I haven't the time to check). Our ways have probably scared her off and Jimmy Wales is probably crying somewhere at this moment because we lost a female editor, since generally they hate this kind of confrontational approach (and she's editing in a foreign language to boot, which is even more intimidating). You could have acted gently, but you bit three times. That's a shame. Malick78 (talk) 17:21, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I see, you have a conflict of interest here. Why didn't she take any notice when you explained to her the reasons for the initial deletion of her article? Deb (talk) 17:26, 9 September 2014 (UTC
  • Deb I knew that Malick78 had a COI in connection with that editor. I thought you are very much aware of that. I think there is need to place Malick under constant surveilance. He may probably had some WP:MEAT if not WP:SOCK. Wikicology (talk) 18:13, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
I think that is a bit of an exaggeration. Have you any evidence for that? Deb (talk) 21:00, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Evidence for what? Wikicology (talk) 21:20, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
For suggesting that there is sock puppetry involved. It's not an accusation to make lightly. Deb (talk) 21:22, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
I beg your pardon! I had never accused him of sock puppetry. His claim above “she's a student of mine but I haven't the time to check only suggest a MEAT (its the statement that suggest a MEAT and not Wikicology). I won't appreciate it, when you mis-quote my comment.Wikicology (talk) 21:36, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Wikicology, it sounded exactly as if you were suggesting that I was up to no good. Please AGF, or you could get in trouble. As it is, students who miss my lessons have to make it up by writing WP articles (via which WP may get new editors who would otherwise never consider editing here, and we get new viewpoints and topics covered). I'm quite able to create a new article (I've created over a hundred as you could easily find out on my page), so quite why you think I would make such a ham-fisted attempt at sock puppetry I don't know. Perhaps you should chill out a bit? I also see no COI.
Sorry Deb for wasting your space here with such absurdities! As for why she didn't take notice, who knows what goes on in others' heads? She was out of her depth in a new, highly-technical and intimidating area of the web. Not everyone gets WP! Malick78 (talk) 19:54, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

CleanLife Energy[edit]


Are G11 and A7 the only cited reasons in deleting the page? The reasoning given to me was, "inappropriate for a variety of reasons." Please expand this reasoning so that I may improve the page following stricter NPOV guidelines and then possibly recreate the page. I read your "FAQs" but wonder why there is no constructive process of correcting or notifying others' of their mistakes, so that they may be corrected, instead of deleting immediately. I support local Cleveland economies and am happy to find notable companies to write about. With that, CleanLife is a notable company and I can prove it through references, etc. Also, from looking through my edits I can improve neutrality. Thanks Aeroplanepics0112 (talk) 23:45, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
  • The intention wasn't to use the page as an advertisement. Is it possible I go back and change the POV to be less like an advertisement and more encyclopedic, instead of losing the page so quickly? Aeroplanepics0112 (talk) 02:43, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
  • the page was deleted for multiple reasons. See it here. Its recreation will amounts to a waste of time. I suggest you should focus on other task. I hate to see your selfless efforts been wasted. Wikicology (talk) 07:10, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Continuing the above theme of power companies, the ReNew Power page has just today been re-created.

  • 220 of Borg, thank you for your concerned. The article was previously deleted per G11. But in its current state it can't be speedily deleted with the same criteria, althou its claims are not supported with the references supplied. Are you familiar with “ eventualism”? You can as well do some editing on it, but if you have a good rationale for its deletion, you may nominate it for deletion using AFD. Cheers Wikicology (talk) 07:54, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Lectoure Royal Tannery this is user draft article that I am working on and do not want it in mainspace yet. Please revert. Two minutes - you did not even give me time to add a {{usersandbox}} to it. Thanks ww2censor (talk) 14:27, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Why don't you just move it back yourself? Only this time use the correct title for the draft. Deb (talk) 14:39, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Why? You did it, so you should fix it. An what do you mean? Correct title. ww2censor (talk) 15:30, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
correct title - ok I see what I did. ww2censor (talk) 15:35, 18 September 2014 (UTC)


Re: your comments to me on Aerospeed's talk page. I contacted you as it appeared you had dealings with Aerospeed before. Re: Strawman #1 Yes, any Wikipedian can tag an article, I didn't contest that. Strawman#2 "Hanging offense", this is sort of a gross overstatement. If it was such I would have taken the matter up with the appropriate noticeboard. I simply took issue with tagging an article as a "blatant hoax" and "pure vandalism", per CSD G3 (i.e.assume good faith?) without taking the time to look into matters. Yes, if someone is going to tag an article they should take the time to see what it is they're doing. Aerospeed agreed with my points when I brought them to his attention and had the capacity to apologize. Now I offer the same advice to you. Please take the time to look into matters thoroughly before you use strawmen to make your points, and assume good faith, please. Btw, thanks for moving the article, I had reservations about 'Esquire'. -- Gwillhickers (talk) 16:19, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

please undelete talk page[edit]

maybe it was my mistake in the first place. If I forgot to check, if I also moved the talk page from Talk:Black Pied Dairy cattle. --PigeonIP (talk) 14:42, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

maybe you wanted to delete Talk:Black pied cattle, but you got to Talk:German Black Pied Dairy and deleted that instead. Your comment is (R3: Recently created, implausible redirect), but the page German Black Pied Dairy exists (and shall stay there! see the comment on the deleted talk page). --PigeonIP (talk) 14:49, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

(edit conflict)Hi, Deb! You deleted Talk:German Black Pied Dairy; that page should (?) have had history and content associated with it.

Scheiner Law Group[edit]

You had deleted this page. I restored some past diffs, after this was re-created as a less "spammy" version.

(talk page stalker) It's still a blatant advertisement, just shorter, and has all the hallmarks of a "paid for" article, an impression reinforced by the creator's other work. If no one was else has done so by the end of the day, I'm sending it to AfD. Voceditenore (talk) 14:19, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Would like permission to re-write Telergy Page[edit]

I rushed too quickly writing my very first article on Wikipedia, and was wondering if I could re-write a Telergy article that is based on references that can be verified, and in the correct format. I have tons of notable references and am asking for a second chance to write an article using article wizard this time. According to my talk page, it says I need to contact you before writing a new article and ask for permission. Thank you for your time, Deb. Mkdpellet3 (talk) 20:16, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Editing Center on International Commercial Arbitration[edit]

Hi Deb, I am in charge of editing the Washington College of Law's Center on International Commercial Arbitration page and I see it was deleted for several reasons in the past- most recently by you in January.

Hi, I'm Anupmehra. The user you recently blocked for upol violation has sent an account creation request to WP:ACC and I'm presently reviewing the same. I noticed despite you have placed a soft-block notice on the user talk page, you've applied a hard-block setting for them. I had to ask before acting on the request, is the block only made for 'username' or 'promotional editing' as well? If only username, I'll grant them an account. If including 'promotional editing', I'll decline it and request you to change the template on their user talk page ({{uw-spamublock}}?). Thank you, Anupmehra -Let's talk! 17:58, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi! I did try once more to edit and make the changes to the page ( ), I hope this time it is suitable to live.

Block of User:CranknCog Apparel[edit]

Hi! I saw your block of this user [2] and I'm curious as to why the block was made for one year rather than indefinite? Every other case I've reported on corporate names (see this), and every case I've seen, has resulted in indefinite blocks as opposed to one year. Thoughts? --Hammersoft (talk) 15:11, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

  • You're totally correct. I just can't seem to get this right. Why does it even give us the option? :-( Deb (talk) 15:13, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
    • I don't know :) It's not a big deal. I seriously doubt the account operator will come back in a year. Just curious, not trying to be OCD :) --Hammersoft (talk) 15:14, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) It's because she's out of practice. She's too nice to block people!!! Face-wink.svgFortuna Imperatrix Mundi 11:18, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

One year blocks are handy for an editor who gets very angry and needs a cool-down period. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 14:55, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Angela richter[edit]

Deb, I think your deletion of Angela richter was improper. A conflict of interest is by itself not a reason to delete and I didn't think the text was promotional. In addition, is was in the process of concluding it notable, and had just linked the article to its German counterpart (I suspect the English article was a partial translation, BTW, but my German's kinda rusty). As I was trying to fix the title to capitalize the R and do some cleanup, I found it deleted. I personally think it should be restored. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 14:54, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't have the text to the article, so I would need you to restore it. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 19:57, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Deb, I need it restored with its contributions history. I didn't write it, and can't take credit for writing it. You're an administrator, you should know this. It would have been easier for everyone had you simply fessed up to your mistake and just restored it at its original title. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 15:12, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

I've requested a second opinion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Second administrator opinion requested on an article deletion. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 15:39, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Badke Quartet[edit]

I was really surprised that this article was deleted. I didn't write it, but the Badke Quartet is a very well-known quartet in Britain. It has been pretty extensively reviewed, and is certainly worthy of an article. They were recently appointed artists in residence at Royal Holloway University. Was there an AFD about this? Because there was nothing about the article (that I remember only vaguely) that merited even speedy delete. --Ravpapa (talk) 17:50, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

please do so (transfer to my sandbox). I will try to put it in decent shape. Thanks --Ravpapa (talk) 18:26, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Dear Deb, I have rewritten the article on the Badke quartet, it is in my sandbox ( User:Ravpapa/sandbox). You were right to have deleted it - the entire article was cribbed from their website. While I know it is a Herculean task to clear out all the garbage from Wikipedia, in the future, when you come across an article on a classical music performer or group that looks fishy, you might post to the classical music project talk page (Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Classical music). We are constantly reviewing articles like this, and are glad to help out. --Ravpapa (talk) 13:27, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Good job. I have some minor comments but don't want to annoy Deb I mean, who does??? so where is it appropriate? Please advise, cheers, DBaK (talk) 13:35, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
I'd suggest the article talk page. Seriously though, I trust the judgment of any third-party contributor who chooses to recreate a deleted page and improve it so I wouldn't normally even bother looking at it. For example, I'm taking your word for it that The Strad magazine is a reliable source. Deb (talk) 14:01, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Thanks Deb! Yes the Strad (good cartoons, recipes and celeb news, many kittens) is more or less an RS - nowhere near as good as The Brass Herald of course but will have to do in this case (goak here). Best wishes to all DBaK (talk) 14:05, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
I saw that the article wasn't moved to articlespace yet, so I made the changes on my sandbox. I hope they didn't fall between the cracks. I would dispute DBaK's assessment of RS, but then I am a string player, not a tooter. --Ravpapa (talk) 18:57, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Manchester Speculative Fiction[edit]

Pretty high-handed behaviour there, Deb. I'm well aware of the notability guidelines, and the article was sourced. IIRC the correct procedure is to gain a consensus on an article's notability, or lack of. I suggest you need to reconsider. --Shimbo (talk) 11:44, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

PERICLES FP7 project[edit]

Hi Deb, I created a new wikipedia page for the PERICLES FP7 project which was supposed to be entered here: but it was again deleted. Any insight on what happened? Does it have to do with you rejecting my previous effort also? From what I gather I need to improve its notability by adding more sources, any other feedback you can provide? I have uploaded the new content in my sandbox to test it out before resubmitting. please have a look and reply in that page's talk if possible. Thank you!

Novel notability[edit]

Hello, I would like to ask your opinion/advice on establishing notability for a handful of novels we've been going back-and-forth on the past couple of days. As you know, I've proposed additional criteria in Wikipedia:Notability (books) and in the meantime I have attempted to include citations for these novels that meets the existing criteria. I have started discussions in the talk pages of Blood and Bone and Assail explaining the citations I've added and why I believe them to satisfy the notability criteria for books. Unfortunately, another user keeps redirecting the latter article despite my requests to discuss why in the relevant talk page. I suppose what I would like to know is: do you consider the citations as satisfying the notability requirements? And if not, why? What is the best means of communication regarding matters like this? I have reason to believe the discussion I attempted to start in the talk page was not considered before the article was redirected. Knmorgan08 (talk) 00:44, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Speedy vs AfD[edit]

Curious as to the reason these two were Speedied when the AfD would have closed and deleted within 24 hours. I would understand on day 1 or 2, now those are left as incomplete discussions thereby invalidating or weakening a WP:G4 rationale--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 13:32, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Interstyle Ceramics[edit]

Hello Deb,

After deletion of Interstyle Ceramics the first two time, i changed it to the maximum for it to be NPOV and removed any advertisement possible, now you blocked the page completely and i cannot correct my mistakes any longer. Is their a way for me to run the content by you before inserting it so i can be sure it won't be deleted? Right now, i can't create the page anymore for you to check it, you blocked me till may 2015.

Thank you for your help and i hope to get a few comments on how to join the encyclopedia.

Hello Deb,

I really don't understand why have you deleted my articles about FE, especially that I don't see any advertising there. Also when I added this software to the list of programs you also deleted this. Can you help me and explain me what am I doing wrong? Thank you in advance.

Wim Botha[edit]

Hi Deb. You deleted the stub 3-4 miniutes after creation under A3, but we are encouraged to wait at least ten to 15 minutes before placing an A1 or A3, and I was in the process of helping expanding with info and references on this South African artist. I can't see who created the article, I assume it was not speedy tagged, but if you will tell me, I will welcome the user and suggest AfC. Best, Sam Sing! 14:52, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Media Savvy Page[edit]

Hi Deb. If you look at the page accurately, there is no difference from other outdoor advertising company pages. The main goal was to inform with reliable sources, and I don't see any advertising there. Could you please tell me which part you consider as Unambiguous advertising or promotion before you just deleting it. Thank you in advance.


Please undelete this article. The bot that tagged it with copyright violation is broken. It has done the same to many of my recent articles. They all have excerpts of video game review quotes in them but no direct content copying off any site. This form of quoting is permitted and in fact encouraged as Wikipedia does not approve of misinterpreting critics words.--Coin945 (talk) 12:57, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Request to reinstate List of Roman quaestors[edit]


You deleted the article I started titled "List of Roman quaestors". It was an 'under construction' page and I accept should have been marked as such. Unfortunately it isn't possible to put it in a sandbox, or leave it for later, because it is a list and will only be completed over the course of time as I work through it chronologically, but having it there will allow other people to work on it too.

Could you please reinstate it and I will mark it 'under construction', thanks.
