Hall of Shame
Like any decent writer (which I do not claim myself to be), I push the envelope occasionally. Here are my articles that have been deemed unwikiworthy:
- Kool Korners Grocery (votes), a 20-year-old hip little hole-in-the-wall landmark sandwich shop in Atlanta. Even though I easily spotted several less significant establishments in Category:Restaurants, Kool Korners took the brunt of an anti-restaurant-"vanity" movement. Yet some content lives on in wikitravel:Atlanta!
- El Presidente (cocktail) (votes), a tasty little Cuban cocktail. It was actually my own idea to delete the Wikipedia entry, after moving the content to wikibooks:Bartending:El Presidente.
- Category:Wikipedians by input device (votes), a holding category for Category:Dvorak keyboard users and other input device user categories (should another Wikipedian wish to create them). I copied the organizational logic from Category:Wikipedians by text editor → Category:Nano users (&c.), yet others disagreed, so the Dvorak user category was moved to Category:Wikipedians without an intermediate group category.
- Category:Wikipedians by fields of interest (not voted on), was a category for users to identify themselves by encyclopedic topics that they were knowledgeable about or in which they specialized. It was redirected to a category for any interest, encyclopedic or not.
- Template:Part-of (votes), a general use navigational template appearing above the title bar.
- Baltimorons (votes), a harmless redirect from a term I have only ever heard in self-reference. Some Wikipedians have no sense of humor.
