Centralized discussion
Proposals: policy other Discussions Ideas

Note: inactive discussions, closed or not, should be archived.

Miscellany for deletion (MfD) is a place where Wikipedians decide what should be done with problematic pages in the namespaces which aren't covered by other specialized deletion discussion areas. Items sent here are usually discussed for seven days; then they are either deleted by an administrator or kept, based on community consensus as evident from the discussion, consistent with policy, and with careful judgment of the rough consensus if required.

Information on the process[edit]

What may be nominated for deletion here:

  • Pages in these namespaces: Book:, Draft:, Help:, Portal:, MediaWiki:, Wikipedia: (including WikiProjects), User:, TimedText:, Module:, Topic:, and the various Talk: namespaces
  • Userboxes (regardless of namespace)
  • Any other page, that is not in article space, where there is dispute as to the correct XfD venue.

Requests to undelete pages deleted after discussion here, and debate whether discussions here have been properly closed, both take place at Wikipedia:Deletion review, in accordance with Wikipedia's undeletion policy.

Before nominating a page for deletion[edit]

Before nominating a page for deletion, please consider these guidelines:

Deleting pages in your own userspace
  • If you want to have your own personal userpage deleted, there is no need to list it here; simply tag it with {{db-userreq}}. If you wish your user talk page (or user talk page archives) to be deleted, this is the correct location to request that.
Deleting pages in other people's userspace
  • Consider explaining your concerns on the user's talk page with a personal note or by adding {{subst:Uw-userpage}} ~~~~  to their talk page. This step assumes good faith and civility; often the user is simply unaware of the guidelines, and the page can either be fixed or speedily deleted using {{db-userreq}}.
  • Take care not to bite newcomers - sometimes using the {{subst:welcome}} or {{subst:welcomeg}} template and a pointer to WP:UP would be best first.
  • Problematic userspace material is often addressed by the User pages guidelines including in some cases removal by any user or tagging to clarify the content or to prevent external search engine indexing. (Examples include copies of old, deleted, or disputed material, problematic drafts, promotional material, offensive material, inappropriate links, 'spoofing' of the MediaWiki interface, disruptive HTML, invitations or advocacy of disruption, certain kinds of images and image galleries, etc) If your concern relates to these areas consider these approaches as well, or instead of, deletion.
  • User pages about Wikipedia-related matters by established users usually do not qualify for deletion.
  • Articles that were recently deleted at AfD and then moved to userspace are generally not deleted unless they have lingered in userspace for an extended period of time without improvement to address the concerns that resulted in their deletion at AfD, or their content otherwise violates a global content policy such as our policies on Biographies of living persons that applies to any namespace.
Policies, guidelines and process pages
  • Established pages and their sub-pages should not be nominated, as such nominations will probably be considered disruptive, and the ensuing discussions closed early. This is not a forum for modifying or revoking policy. Instead consider tagging the policy as {{historical}} or redirecting it somewhere.
  • Proposals still under discussion generally should not be nominated. If you oppose a proposal, discuss it on the policy page's discussion page. Consider being bold and improving the proposal. Modify the proposal so that it gains consensus. Also note that even if a policy fails to gain consensus, it is often useful to retain it as a historical record, for the benefit of future editors.
WikiProjects and their subpages
  • It is generally preferable that inactive WikiProjects not be deleted, but instead be marked as {{WikiProject status|inactive}}, redirected to a relevant WikiProject, or changed to a task force of a parent WikiProject, unless the WikiProject was incompletely created or is entirely undesirable.
  • WikiProjects that were never very active and which do not have substantial historical discussions (meaning multiple discussions over an extended period of time) on the project talk page should not be tagged as {{historical}}; reserve this tag for historically active projects that have, over time, been replaced by other processes or that contain substantial discussion (as defined above) of the organization of a significant area of Wikipedia. Before deletion of an inactive project with a founder or other formerly active members who are active elsewhere on Wikipedia, consider userfication.
  • Notify the main WikiProject talk page when nominating any WikiProject subpage, in addition to standard notification of the page creator.
Alternatives to deletion
  • Normal editing that doesn't require the use of any administrator tools, such as merging the page into another page or renaming it, can often resolve problems.
  • Pages in the wrong namespace (e.g. an article in Wikipedia namespace), can simply be moved and then tag the redirect for speedy deletion using {{db-g6|rationale= it's a redirect left after a cross-namespace move}}. Notify the author of the original article of the cross-namespace move.

Please familiarize yourself with the following policies[edit]

How to list pages for deletion[edit]

Please check the aforementioned list of deletion discussion areas to check that you are in the right area. Then follow these instructions:

IPA for X[edit]

IPA for X (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

This is a multiple-page nomination (sorry if the title is incorrect). The pages under scrutiny are:

Help: IPA for Berber
Help: IPA for Colognian
Help: IPA for Gujarati
Help: IPA for Judaeo-Spanish
Help: IPA for Klingon
Help: IPA for Laz
Help: IPA for Kashmiri
Help:IPA for Luxembourgish
Help: IPA for Marshallese
Help: IPA for Mingrelian
Help: IPA for Nguni
Help: IPA for Punjabi
Help: IPA for Quechua
Help: IPA for Svan
Help: IPA for Walloon

The IPA for X pages are designed to provide utility to readers and editors in understanding and transcribing language-specific transcriptions at Wikipedia. They are not to be a resource for language learners or simplified coverage of a language’s phonology compared to the phonology section of a language's Wikipedia entry. When an IPA for X page is created, it should be there to cover an unmet need. I believe that the above pages do not qualify for this unmet need. Most of them are not linked to at all and the rest are only used a handful of times. In certain cases, the pages have only been recently created, but the need for the page should exist before it is created. Here is the breakdown for each:

Help: IPA for Berber – created July 2010. 7 articles link here, 4 of these are language-related articles that explain transcription within article space.
Help: IPA for Colognian – created November 2010. 3, articles link here, 2 of which are language-related.
Help: IPA for Gujarati – created November 2014. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Judaeo-Spanish – created October 2014. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Klingon –created December 2014. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Laz – created October 2014. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Kashmiri – created October 2014. No pages link here.
Help:IPA for Luxembourgish - created May 2014. 6 pages link here.
Help: IPA for Marshallese – created April 2011. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Mingrelian – created April 2014. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Nguni – created December 2012. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Punjabi – created December 2012. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Quechua – created December 2013. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Svan – created October 2014. No pages link here.
Help: IPA for Walloon – created March 2014. 2 pages link here. — Ƶ§œš¹ [lɛts b̥iː pʰəˈlaɪˀt] 00:21, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. I believe I've fixed it now. I wasn't as sure about Luxembourgish, but since I've tagged it we can discuss it. So it's in both lists now. — Ƶ§œš¹ [lɛts b̥iː pʰəˈlaɪˀt] 03:18, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Keep: Just like I stated in the abortion discussion, this is another neutrally worded personal opinion infobox, like any other. This user is just stating his side of the sexual preference table; Is Wikipedia now "heterophobic"? Wikipedia is supposed to be neutral, not "pro-gay" or "pro-straight". So if users want people to stop talking about sexual preference opinions, you might as well start nominating every sexuality related infobox, like this one. Or better still, personal opinions shouldn't be given on our userpages anymore....thereby eradicating the use of userbox, since that's what it is for anyway (for personal opinions). Bottomline is, this userbox isn't attacking any group of people...therefore, not Polemic.--Jamie Tubers (talk) 19:49, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Keep: This is just a neutrally worded personal opinion userbox, like any other. It is not attacking any group of people; anyone who finds this insulting has his own personal issues. There are userboxes about users disliking acts, music genre, hair colour etc...so what's the issue here? I have userboxes that's about disliking hip hop music, does that mean I'm attacking hip hop artistes? or infact hip hop lovers? This user dislikes abortion.....so who is he attacking? People who's had abortions? c'mon! This is in no way polemic!--Jamie Tubers (talk) 19:34, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Per WP:FAKEARTICLE, looks like to the editor's alternative version of Second_Lady_of_the_United_States#List_of_wives_of_the_vice_presidents. WP:BLP concerns as well since no sources are provided. Ricky81682 (talk) 23:01, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Comment: Although this and the following nominations are obviously in good faith, I note that AMK152 is still an active editor. It is good practice to discuss concerns about an editor's userspace pages with that editor before nominating them for deletion. Newyorkbrad (talk) 00:20, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank-you, Newyorkbrad. — AMK152 (tc) 00:45, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
So should it be a redirect and history-merged? Ok I see. You were working on a table as part of the article and it's now been merged in. I think our general practice is to merge in the edits but if there's a policy rationale to keep it, I'm fine with that. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 01:48, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes. Perhaps the closing admin can do this. — AMK152 (tc) 02:01, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

I guess I should withdraw this. This history I think references this page which is what's required. - Ricky81682 (talk) 08:17, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

User:AMK152/2000s (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Per WP:FAKEARTICLE, looks like a fork of List of sovereign states in the 2000s. Suggest deletion and that the editor work with others at the mainspace article. Ricky81682 (talk) 22:58, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep and close Actually, it doesn't. It is a draft to make the article into a table, but it should look good, so I create a sandbox to work on so as to test how it could look. It is not complete and I think a half-created table doesn't look good. I did the same thing for the table for Second Lady of the United States at User:AMK152/2ndLady, which took me from July 2011 to February 2013 to complete. Not only that, but the 2nd Ladies table is now a part of the main article. I didn't want the table to be half complete on the article, so I created a sandbox until it was ready. I really don't understand why you are putting these subpages up for deletion instead of asking me about them. You seem to not know the purpose of some of these articles. — AMK152 (tc) 00:18, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
It wasn't edited for almost four years. If you wanted to insert the table now, there's be four years at editing at the article that would have be redone. Otherwise, you'd have to incorporate four years of editing into this table before inserting it in. Also, I don't see a single comment by you at Talk:List_of_sovereign_states_in_the_2000s so that other would know what you're doing. What is you plan, at some point in the future, adding a table in and saying "here's the text from 2010, let's go re-do years of the contents now"? -- Ricky81682 (talk) 02:04, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
What you are describing could be done with template:inuse. Put up that template and work on the article. It took you a very little bit over a day to finish it and then it sat there for years. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 02:07, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
It's not yet finished. It still needs work. — AMK152 (tc) 02:15, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
And yes, it is years old, but it took me almost two years to complete the table for the Second Ladies of the United States article. — AMK152 (tc) 02:17, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

I'll withdraw this. - Ricky81682 (talk) 08:14, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

User:AMK152/ChildrenCivilWar[edit]

User:AMK152/ChildrenCivilWar (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Per WP:WEBHOST, I'm not sure this could be a notable list. It seems like a list of sons and daughters of all veterans from the American Civil War which seems too broad and indiscriminate a grouping (it also would be inherited notability based on their parents). I'm not even certain a listing of all veterans from the Civil War would be a good list, let alone a list of their children (dead or alive). Ricky81682 (talk) 22:40, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep and close - no, this is not used as a web host. It is a draft for a future article. It's a list of living sons and daughters. It is still a draft and not ready to be an actual article as I need to collect sources so that it meets Wikipedia's criteria. List of last survivors of historical events and related articles are similar in content type. Why are you nominating subpages for deletion without getting a clear idea to it's purpose? My talk page is only a click a way! — AMK152 (tc) 00:39, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
I get the purpose. It's a userspace draft for an active editor; however there's still BLP issues here and I'm not certain how a list of (I presume) the current list living descendants of civil war veterans could be an article. I see that List of veterans of World War I who died in 1999 means that you could in theory make a series of lists based on them as they died (and I'd still say the veterans are notable, the children are inherited notability) but I don't know why a list of the ones who are living is appropriate. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 02:00, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Hence, it is not yet an article as it is not yet ready. That is why it is in userspace. — AMK152 (tc) 03:16, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

I question this still but I'll withdraw it as well. - Ricky81682 (talk) 08:15, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject World's Oldest People/Future supercentenarians[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject World's Oldest People/Future supercentenarians (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

This isn't the typical WikiProject list for potential articles. It's instead a list of BLPs that could become articles. If the editors wanted to start drafts of all these articles, that's one thing but this is not necessary. Ricky81682 (talk) 22:08, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep as I said on a similar MfD, this is a project page. "A list of BLPs that could become articles" is merely PART of the use of the project page, although it is something I never even considered the list to be. Primarily, I considered the list what it mainly is: it is used to help keep the List of living supercentenarians and related articles up to date by having an organized list of information to seek out sources for that article and related articles when such persons reach supercentenarian status. By having an established list of those who are approaching that age, it makes it easier for project members to see which persons are reaching the age of 110, while looking to past sources and seeing if the source has an update to that person's age, being 110 or beyond. Seeking out the same news source for a person's 109th birthday announcement one year later is much easier when you have the link to that article, when searching to see if the 110th birthday was reached. Again, this is a project page, not an actual article. It has more uses than a list of potential articles. In fact, not all supercentenarians have articles. A previous nomination for deletion resulted in keep. — AMK152 (tc) 02:40, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep - As a hypothetical, if I had a list of players currently signed to association football teams in fully professional leagues, that were simply waiting to play in a game to meet WP:NFOOTY, I don't think that'd be a problem. The same is true here. This is a list of topics that may need to be covered, by a specific WikiProject, hosted by that specific WikiProject. This seems like a totally legit use of WP: space. Also, you mention that if this was a list of draft articles, instead of just a list of articles to write, that it would be okay. I really don't see how that argument has any internal congruence. Achowat (talk) 07:19, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete This article has little functionality as a means to an end (tracking possible future supercentenarians as claimed) and is instead being used as an end in itself (there being no apparent standard for inclusion, multiple BLP failures, and no attempt at weeding out out-of-date entries). If this does not exist off-wiki in some for m or other it would not seem difficult for any user(s) to maintain a copy. DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 09:39, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. I can see the rationale for the list, but it clearly needs substantial trimming to comply with policy. For a start, per WP:BLP, all entries must cite a source, and unsourced entries need to be removed. And why does a list of 'future supercentenarians' need to include people who have already been included in our list of living supercentenarians article? AndyTheGrump (talk) 18:44, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I agree. I'd rather it be deleted and then organized as a proper series of redlinks with names and external links alone with zero details like any project's 'wanted articles' page. That would be the appropriate use of the page for the project. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 22:32, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Comment Actually, I don't see any problem in trimming it. We are talking about a project page here and not an actual Wikipedia article. — AMK152 (tc) 00:51, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Comment Additionally, it is in table form like List of living supercentenarians because it sorts all needed information. Then, when the needed source is found, the content can be copied and pasted to the List of living supercentenarians article. — AMK152 (tc) 00:54, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
The problem with this approach is that not having reliable sources for information about living or recently-dead people is a BLP violation. Ca2james (talk) 15:57, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete I sort of see why the list exists but there are a bunch of BLP violations and it isn't clear that the rest are reliably-sourced. A project like this should be for discussing how to generate this type of list, not for including the list itself. If being this age is notable then the list should be in mainspace, not in project space. Also note that the links at the bottom are to the lists on userpages which are all up for deletion. Ca2james (talk) 01:00, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep This list might not be entirely reliable, but that's exactly why it's in the project namespace- it's a source of useful information for editors which, once verified, is added to Wikipedia mainspace. It would be absurd to destroy such a valuable resource on the grounds of notability- for it exists in order to make the main encyclopaedia more reliable!Chessrat (talk) 01:54, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment I have removed all unsourced individuals from the list. — AMK152 (tc) 02:52, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep because first of all, WP:NOTWEBHOST is not relevant. It is not a personal web page or anything else listed under WP:NOTWEBHOST. Additionally, WP:FAKEARTICLE is not relevant. I would be in favor of bringing it over to a project page, but there was a discussion stating that it was not favorable, so I put it on my user page. It is not a fake article, it is not intended to look like an article, nor is it a draft. To say what the page really is, is basically, a sandbox. It is a place to store information in preparation for the List of living supercentenarians article and for those involved in the project to seek out sources for such individuals, so as to keep List of living supercentenarians article up to date more easily. It is not hurting anyone at all, but rather, it is helping WikiProject World's Oldest People, so I don't understand the problem nir the rationale. — AMK152 (tc) 02:29, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Webhost doesn't mean it's a personal page, it means using Wikipedia to host content. Second, one of the biggest problems I see if that all the people doing this are hindered from actually learning to work and collaborate with others: it becomes a "I disagree with you, I'm copying this into my own page and you can't change it" routine. There's no other reason why there would be so many different versions. If there was a single page and people were actually working to build consensuses and create the articles based on what seems like the most reasonable neutral way to do it, fine, I'd leave you all alone but instead we're getting nothing but "I want my article written my way and no one should stop me." -- Ricky81682 (talk) 22:47, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
That's just it. This is a page for people to work together. It's not "my way" it's for everyone to contribute to. It is a single page. If there is another page like it where other people are working together, please let me know and we can collaborate — AMK152 (tc) 01:01, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Delete per WP:FAKEARTICLE and WP:NOTWEBHOST. If being this old is notable enough for an article then lists like this go in articlespace/mainspace, not userspace. Ca2james (talk) 01:12, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes, such an article exisits: List of living supercentenarians. This subpage is used to help keep that article up to date by making it easier to find information when it comes time for the person to be included in the article articlespace. It's not its own entity. It's a project page that supports the main article for reasons I have already given. — AMK152 (tc) 01:16, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Then the information must be merged into the article or deleted; this type of project page is not an appropriate or allowed use of user pages. Ca2james (talk) 01:20, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • The people in this list are not yet supercentenarians. This subpage isn't meant to be an article. It's meant to be a placeholder for content when the right time comes and the right sources are available. I do not yet see how this fails WP:FAKEARTICLE and WP:NOTWEBHOST. — AMK152 (tc) 01:25, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • In that case, the information must be kept off-wiki. Per WP:NOTWEBHOST, it isn't appropriate for project space or user space. Ca2james (talk) 02:50, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • A review of policies again, according to WP:UPYES, this type of subpage is allowed, in particular, what is in bold: "Drafts being written in your own user space because the target page itself is protected, and notes and working material for articles (Some content may not be kept indefinitely)." - that is what it is: "working material." And the content is not kept indefinitely. — AMK152 (tc) 03:13, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

I have already discussed this with JBarta on my talk page. I am attempting to merge some of the content on my user page in to already existing articles, which I have already begun to do. I have not been very active over the last few days but intend to continue soon.

Ollie231213 (talk) 23:10, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

But what are you planning to add? You just have a list of tables with no reliable sources for it (I don't see how [1] and [2] would pass WP:RS, they look like simple self-published work) so it's essentially being allowed to add unverified OR for the moment to pages to then request sources even though there may be WP:BLP concerns in case we're wrong on their deaths. Your additions do contain sources so is this just a list for you to use on your own? -- Ricky81682 (talk) 22:57, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

You are saying all these things and yet I get the impression you have no idea what you are talking about. Do you know anything about the "Oldest in Brtain" website? Do you know how I compiled the list of living centenarians?

This list of living centenarians was designed to be an extension of List of living centenarians, but it included people who had articles on non-English Wikipedia(s). It was both for my own use and also to share with others. I have spoken with JBarta and have suggested that I added these people to the main article but include links to the non-English articles. I have begun to add these people's names to the list and added references to confirm they made it to 100.

Adding reply from User talk:Ollie231213#MfD nomination of User:Ollie231213 to this discussion:

"Ollie231213, yes, you have discussed this with me, and at the end of our conversation you indicated you were going to merge what you can and delete the rest. I can see you have made some effort to merge some information, but the situation is largely unchanged and you have attracted the attention of others. Here's the situation... almost certainly in a short amount of time (several days?) your userpage will be deleted. Before that happens you are welcome to copy the material and store it on your own personal computer. Then you may take as long as you wish to merge whatever you'd like into existing articles. And after this episode has passed, you should confine your article/list building to Wikipedia articles (new or existing). – JBarta (talk) 23:02, 18 December 2014 (UTC)" [added by User:CommanderLinx]

Delete per nominator and the reply above. Any salvageble information (such as number 4) should be added to existing articles. I recommend following the advice above; save your work elsewhere and work on it in your own time. CommanderLinx (talk) 06:15, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Oldest relatives is trivia about the user and Top 10 is just the oldest top 10 living people in the world.

Wikipedia:Autofixing cites (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Not sure how to classify this; a failed proposal perhaps for another approach to broken refs. But there was no interest in it, the templates were TfD and userfied, and without them it's a confusing mess with the examples broken and unlikely ever to be fixed. Could be marked as historical or a failed proposal but as it was never adopted or seriously considered probably deletion/userfication is best. JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 14:51, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

This was just a red-linked userpage that hadn't been created yet; somebody else created the page with a message that they haven't made a page yet, which is a bit useless. -Fimatic (talk | contribs) 03:57, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

A userpage being useless isn't a criteria for deletion. Many userpages are left blank, which is arguably even more useless. Can you offer any reason, citing Wikipedia policy, justifying your call for its deletion? – JBarta (talk) 04:06, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
@Jbarta: I meant to say that somebody else created the page, with just a message that their page hadn't been created yet. -Fimatic (talk | contribs) 03:14, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
I suppose we could just remove the message. It's not really required, but it won't do any terrible harm. Then at least we'll get a nice warm feeling that we've done something about it. Would that then satisfy you that the userpage can stay? – JBarta (talk) 03:24, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
@Jbarta: Yes, I'd be completely fine with that. :) The userpage can stay, I just thought that having a message claiming that the userpage didn't exist yet was a bit unnecessary. -Fimatic (talk | contribs) 06:00, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Text on userpage removed (yes, I know I bent the rules a little). Nominator withdraws and changes to Keep. I'll also vote Keep just for good measure... and I think we're done here. – JBarta (talk) 06:18, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

WP:FAKEARTICLE, and WP:STALEDRAFT. These appear to be an autobiography. The user name corresponds to a video short featuring Shirley Hanna-King. As a user page, this masquerades as an article. As a sandbox entry, it is stale. The individual might potentially meet notability as a songwriter with the claim of a Grammy nomination, but the draft provides no sources to substantiate, and given the stubbiness of the draft, if a standalone article were justified, it could easily be written.

Out of all the Word Association variants, this one crashed and burned like a white hot Blue Falcon falling off the track and into a building. The rest of the new variants are successful, so those should be kept. Although, Adamantine association may also need to be clipped if it doesn't go to Round 2 in a month or so.

        • It has never hit game 2, unlike all the other grid games except Adamantine (EG and Flatline are going especially well). James1011R (talk, contribs) 02:22, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
