Thanks![edit]

Thank you for protecting List of Thomas & Friends voice actors.

But, I have one question: When the protection expires, if the vandalism begins again do I request protection again or just deal with it? --ACase0000 (talk) 14:34, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Up to you, but I'd recommend requesting protection again. Most likely it'll be for a longer period, eventually escalating to indefinite protection if necessary. GedUK  15:19, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Ok Thank You for your Help! --ACase0000 (talk) 01:52, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Justin Gaethje[edit]

Why exactly was this page deleted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by BEDofRAZORS666 (talkcontribs) 23:44, 31 March 2015‎

Hi, I'm not the guy above who asked this question, and I can readily guess the most likely technical reason why Justin Gaethje's page would have been deleted, but since Gaethje's lack of a Wikipedia page was mentioned in a news article on a major MMA website not too long ago in a profile piece on the person, it might be in the community's best interests if you gave an official statement as to why his page was deleted, for non-regular editors who were attracted to the page.

Hi there. MMA fighters have a specific notability criteria which they have to meet before they can have a Wikipedia page. These are at WP:NMMA, and are
  1. Have fought at least three (3) professional fights for a top-tier MMA organization, such as the UFC (see WP:MMATIER); or
  2. Have fought for the highest title of a top-tier MMA organization.
At the deletion discussion Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Justin Gaethje the community agreed that Justin Gaethje did not meet these criteria. The page was recreated, and I deleted it because, as far as I could see, there was no substantial difference between that version and the previously deleted one, so he still did not meet WP:NMMA. If you feel that he does meet these criteria, and I've made a mistake, please let me know and I'm happy to review it.
If you'd like me to restore the page and move it to your userspace to wait until he does meet the criteria, then I can do that.
If you don't think the criteria are fair, you can start at discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Notability_(sports).
I hope this all helps. I know it's frustrating when a page gets deleted, but there's always a reason, and I certainly don't delete pages without considering the rules and the article. GedUK  11:05, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
