Instructions don't match behavior for G6[edit]

WP:CSD says there will be a button saying Contest this speedy deletion to allow someone to object to a deletion request. However, for G6, there is no such button. It was just pointed out to me that this is because the presence of the button was removed four years ago. Either the button should be put back in, or the instructions should be changed so they don't tell people to look for a non-existing button. If there is no button provided, the instructions should provide some alternative way that people can express an objection. —BarrelProof (talk) 01:07, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

I think its because since the G6 criteria is for technical cases, there is no reason to contest the speedy deletion. --TL22 (talk) 13:42, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
Unless the nominator is wrong about the applicability of G6, of course. Then the person who studies the situation and wants to object is told to look for a button that does not exist, and is also told "The creator of a page may not remove a speedy deletion tag from it. Only an editor who is not the creator of a page may do so." Then they are stuck in a Catch 22, and foreclosed from doing anything.
The bottom line is that there is a very valid reason to contest a G6 speedy deletion: cases where the G6 claim is wrong.

I can see the button being used occasionally. More importantly, from a costs-benefit analysis I don't see any reason not to add the button back, so I think we should do so rather than changing the instructions. Even if the majority (or even almost all) G6's are entirely technical and uncontroversial and not likely to be contested, I see no problem – no potential for harm and extra bureaucracy – created by having the button in, regardless of whether we expect it to mostly lie fallow.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 16:12, 5 April 2015 (UTC)


I think that template should blank pages as a courtesy just in case of serious copyright violations. --TL22 (talk) 17:34, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Please investigate cv multiple sources[edit]

I have often used Twinkle to populate this template. I have noticed that adding multiple CV sources populates the template, but that it does not display. An example is


I placed this on User:Zhonghao HK/sandbox, which will have been deleted already. Only one of the urls displays. I am entirely unable to work out how to correct this, and hope an expert will take a look. Fiddle Faddle 08:16, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
