Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, University of Melbourne[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, University of Melbourne, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

WP:AFC Backlog Drive[edit]

AFC-Logo.png WikiProject Articles for creation needs your help!
WikiProject Articles for creation has done a tremendous job in working at WP:AFC over the past 7½ months. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication! Together, we've made the submission process easier and more streamlined, developed tools to make the process go faster for reviewers, and cut the backlog down to a mere fraction of what it once was. Well done!

As you all are aware, however, our work is not quite yet done. The project still has 10 archive pages left to complete, which include over half a month's worth of submissions, many of which have not been completely reviewed. We need your help to finish looking over these neglected submissions so that we can finally remove the backlog notice from the page, and put an end to the more than two year old backlog that has been a thorn in our side for ages! Participants will receive an AFC Barnstar, so hurry up and help out while there's still work to be done! Make sure to sign in on the WikiProject's talk page so we know who is involved in what promises to be our final effort to complete this goal. Thank you for all your help!
- Happy editing as always, Hersfold (t/a/c) 16:27, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Lathander[edit]

Hello,

Lathander has been nominated for deletion. I have noticed you working to help other D&D deity articles get kept, in the past. If there is anything you can do to improve this article so that it may be kept, please do so.  :) BOZ (talk) 06:29, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinky?[edit]

Celebrities Who Train BJJ[edit]

A tag has been placed on Celebrities Who Train BJJ, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to a nonexistent page.

If you can fix this redirect to point to an existing Wikipedia page, please do so and remove the speedy deletion tag. However, please do not remove the speedy deletion tag unless you also fix the redirect. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

D&D articles for Wikipedia 0.7[edit]

Hi there!  :)

As someone who's worked on D&D and/or RPG articles before, I'm inviting you to participate in our goal to both improve articles that have been selected to be placed in the next Wikipedia DVD release, as well as nominate more to be selected for this project. Please see the WikiProject D&D talk page for more details. :) BOZ (talk) 19:27, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

peer review of Erin Davis[edit]

I took a quick look at Erin Davis and realized that it needed copy-editing. Currently I'm tied into Rudolph Wanderone and do not have time to perform what I feel is necessary for me in order to read Erin Davis from the first sentence to the last. Sorry. I might suggest that you take a good, hard look at your prose, and edit it some more. In a few days, I will approach you again because I think that your article's "editing problems" are minor though sufficient enough that they need a redraft.

Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms[edit]

Hello. :) If you hadn't heard, Gary Gygax and Wizards of the Coast have recently been promoted to "Good Article" status. I was also thinking of nominating Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms, and I figured I'd contact you since you've done some work on at least one of those. See the project talk page for discussion on that. BOZ (talk) 20:14, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

AfC news[edit]

AFC-Logo.png

Dear AfC participant,

  1. Msgj and Tnxman307 are organising the AfC challenge! It's a little competition to help improve some of the articles created through AfC and we are hoping that everyone will get involved. For level 1, you just need to bring a stub up to Start-class. Level 2 is improving a Start-class article to C-class. And so on. To get involved or for more information please see the competition page.
  2. Those of you who haven't reviewed an article recently might not have noticed the new process that was implemented this year. Reviewing articles is now more enjoyable than ever :) You might like to give it a try. All articles waiting for review are in Category:Pending Afc requests. (Please read the updated instructions.)
  3. Please consider adding {{AFC status}} to your userpage to keep track of the number of articles waiting for review. At the time of writing we are officially backlogged, so help is needed!
  4. There is currently a proposal to bring the Images for upload process under the umbrella of WikiProject Articles for creation. The rationale is that both processes are designed to allow unregistered users to take part more fully in Wikipedia, and partipants in each process can probably help each other.

If you no longer wish to receive messages from WikiProject Articles for creation, please remove your name from this list. Thank you.

Dragonlance[edit]

Hi! I've removed the {{maintained}} template from Talk:Dragonlance, since you don't seem to be involved with the article much at this point. If you plan to continue maintaining the article, please feel free to re-add the template. Thanks! -Drilnoth (talk) 20:04, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey there! Just letting you know that we have nominated Dragonlance to be a Good Article, and it is currently up for review. :) BOZ (talk) 00:14, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Kitchen Nightmares[edit]

Sorry to state the incredibly obvious on the KN talk page, but we've discovered that, where Roman888 is concerned, any lack of clarity is an opportunity to his way of thinking. Thanks for weighing in with an articulate argument! Drmargi (talk) 20:28, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of Dragonlance artifacts[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of Dragonlance artifacts has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not only is no entry on this list notable, but the category of "Dragonlance artifacts" itself is not notable. We do not list random items that happen to exist in a fictional universe on Wikipedia. This article fails Wikipedia's policy on indiscriminate collections of information.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Neelix (talk) 04:05, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of List of Dragonlance artifacts for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of Dragonlance artifacts is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Dragonlance artifacts until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Neelix (talk) 19:56, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
