What is the purpose of this page? It seems to have diverged form the original, and now doesn't work. I will try to rescue it if it is of potential use. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 01:37, 26 June 2014 (UTC).
Hello! Could someone put this article for deletion? It was left, but this person is insignificant. In the Ukrainian Wikipedia article was deleted twice. Author just places articles about his relatives (sorry for mistakes). Шиманський Василь (talk) 16:59, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
- @User:Шиманський Василь: I listed it for you. You can discuss it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bublyk Kuzma Pavlovych (2nd nomination). – Philosopher Let us reason together. 20:14, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
WikiProject X is live!
You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
Have we considered a separate AFD page for beauty pageants and contestants?
Currently, a LOT of beauty pageant stuff gets dumped in Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Fashion and it is REALLY FRUSTRATING - unless the contestant has worked as a fashion model or in design, they often have very, very little relevance to fashion. Most of the time, the Fashion AFD page is overwhelmed by barely relevant AFDs for pageant contestants or for beauty pageants - at this point, there are 52 active AFDs on the fashion page.
- Five are about fashion brands or businesses. These are legit.
- Seven are for fashion designers, models, or people claiming (or claimed) to be (or having been) designers/models. Again, these are legit.
THEN... the remaining 40 are all beauty pageant related. That's nearly 77% of the Fashion AFD list - and even allowing for the fact there are a lot listed at the moment, that's pretty much par for the course. It gets very frustrating sometimes - I admit I've made quite a few snarky comments about it in various AFDs over the years. But is there a reason we can't spin off such a highly popular(!) category to its own AFD section? Mabalu (talk) 15:52, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
To someone such as myself who uses this template only sparingly, the documentation doesn't make it very clear that when you subst the template onto a deletion discussion, you then have to take the extra step of transcluding the deletion discussion onto the list. Five months ago, I made this mistake in the case of this AFD, assuming that the discussion would automatically appear in the list, and wondering why it didn't. I only figured it out just now when I did the same in the case of another AFD. I suspect because I'm using my laptop rather than my phone, I was able to figure it out now because scanning through many pages on my phone would have taken forever and therefore wasn't worth the bother.
